This hotel is in a wonderful location. It was just a short drive over to Portland. There are many restaurants in the area. We chose to visit Sebago Brewing company, and were very pleased. The staff was friendly, and the breakfast offered quite a variety of foods. The room was quite large with plenty of storage space.

Everything was spotless, and we appreciated that in this time of Covid19. We stayed for three days, suite size was perfect, and hotel room quiet. Location was actually surprisingly nice, set off in a large office park.

So we booked 2 nights, what a mistake! Let’s do the positive first the room was big! The bad well there was mold on the edge of the sink( see photos) the remote had something sticky on it! The halls looked like they were never vacuumed! The tub had hair in the drain(gross). Went to the ice machine and trash was over flowing. Now let me remind you that it is COVID 19 going on so you would think cleaning would be stepped up some especially in southern Maine but obviously not. I will post pics. Jake the manager seemed not very interested, there are plenty of hotels definitely will stay elsewhere next time. It’s a shame it used to be a decent hotel not anymore

Dear 51lauries, I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. I am sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with the cleanliness of your room and the ice area. I do understand how this impacted your stay. I would like to emphasize that our housekeepers are doing extra disinfection practices, however I have brought the items that you had mentioned to their attention to ensure they are not missing the fine details such as sink crevasses and keeping their eyes on the usual cleanliness items along with their additional duties. I do hope that you will give us another try in the future as we aim to exceed expectations and based on what you have presented us, that was not achieved for your visit. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do feel free to contact me directly. 207-775-3900. Pleasant travels, Shane

We had items stolen from our room. We suspect the maid but the hotel staff did not believe us that anything was taken. The manager was rude and no response from head office. I have cancelled all my bookings with the IHG group for us, our extended family and our motorcycle club. DO NOT USE THIS HOTEL

Melissa at the front desk recently helped me with my reservation. The terrific snowstorm prevented me from using my reservation. Melissa kindly and efficiently took care of it for me. I was very strressed about not being able to get to the hotel but she was reassuring and kind.
