Close to the mall, plenty of nearby restaurants and only five minutes from the airport. Easy access to the turnpike for travel north or south. Rooms are well appointed and comfortable enough for extended stays or a quick overnight. And breakfast is free!!

We recently traveled to Portland for some medical services and stayed here on the recommendation of a friend. We were very pleased with the hotel staff, the full breakfast, the room rate, and the room was the star. We had a suite with a large living room area and kitchenette with real cups and plates. The kitchenette had a microwave...

Very spacious room, very courteous staff, indoor pool, ample parking, if we get in the area we will go back there for sure. Breakfast is boring, you can add some vegetables to the menu. In the end worth the price

Hotel is back off the main road a bit so we thought it would be quieter. Business center was not working at the time so they sent everyone next door to the Marriott. Breakfast was so bad we went to Cracker Barrel which wasn't any better. The outside was very nicely landscaped. It was just OK, it would depend on...

I stayed here recently and was happy with the choice. All rooms are suites so there was plenty of room to move around. Fridge, microwave and some plates and silverware. The room was clean, bed and pillows were comfortable. I never heard people in neighboring rooms and I felt safe by myself. My only complaint was concerning the breakfast selection,...

Got sent to Portland last minute, arrived late and all I had to do was call the shuttle and they were at the airport in minutes. Very friendly staff including shuttle drivers. All rooms are huge with couches and plenty of space to work. The free breakfast in the mornings is OK... You get what you pay for.

We came up as a family to stay the night because my husband had an early flight out of the Portland Jetport. The room was roomy, nice kitchenette with bowls, plates etc... big fridge, closet and nice decor. The beds were the best part of the whole stay (and most important if you ask me)! The pillows were like sleeping...

The start of our experience began with a phone call to Shane at the front desk to see if we could arrive at 1PM to check in..Shane has a very pleasant demeanor that is totally inline of what hoteliers require of their staff. We were assigned a King Suite, room 303, which overlooks the front of the building. The room...

My husband and I are repeat customers. You can't beat the value for a park and fly and they are not even 10 minutes from the airport. The rooms are clean and the staff attentive. We will use them again.

From check-in to check-out, everything was wonderful. The suite itself is lovely with lots of space and the bed was super comfy. Breakfast was very good in typical Holiday Inn buffet style. All the employees we encountered were pleasant and friendly and we very much enjoyed our stay here. Lots of restaurants in the general area and there was a...
