La Quinta Inn & Suites Portland
Ranked #15 of 21 Hotels in Portland
Reviewed 3 March 2012

A friend and I visited Portland for the weekend and stayed at the La Quinta Inn and Suites. We were happy with our choice. The room was clean and the beds were really comfortable. We thought the breakfast selection was great, including cereals, bagels, fruit, yogurts and a waffle maker. There is a shuttle service to and from the airport, which was very helpful. The hotel is at the edge of town, so it's a little bit of a walk to get to the center of town. We enjoyed the walk in, but for those not looking to walk, there is a public bus route near the the hotel. We took a cab home from town and it was about $10. Overall, this was a good choice for a stay in Portland--good location, nice amenities, and affordable rates.

Stayed here for two nights during the latest snow storm as I work in Portland. I have tried most of the cheap hotels in the area and this is one of the better ones for the price. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and very clean with all necessary ammenties including a small fridge, ironing board and iron, flat panel TV, nice leather recliner, etc. Service was great - Breakfast was OK with your normall continental items. Water pressure was great but they need to put more toiletries in the room. A good reliable stay in Portland !!!!

We stayed at La Quinta in Portland ME and we LOVED it. Clean, quiet, and really comfortable beds. Friendly staff and the vending machine has Bugles! It's walking to downtown.
I had a great sleep and a great stay in Portland! Thanks La Quinta!

Room Tip: Every room is great! I would recommend turning the heat off over night- it was a bit noisy.

My wife and I stayed overnight here last weekend for my birthday. We got a very good price through a "secret hotels" offer. Like other Portland lodging, it's a lot cheaper in winter than in the summer. Our stay there was pretty much what we were expecting. The room was very clean and had a good flat screen TV, but there was some cracked plaster over the bathtub and the sink had cracks (neither posed any real problems). Things in the room worked fine, although the light by the desk was hard to turn on. The wi-fi was very disappointing--it was some of the slowest I have ever used in a hotel and was very frustrating. The free breakfast was what you'd expect--make-your-own waffles, yogurt, cereal, coffee, juices, some fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs--nothing unusual but all good. The breakfast room, though, was very crowded. All the tables were full while we ate and I think some people took things back to their rooms. There is a fitness center--my wife called it "the fitness closet" because it was so tiny--with one weight machine, one bike and one treadmill, plus a TV.
The location is a mixed bag. On the downside, it's not in a scenic place. It's across the street from the Hood Milk Dairy plant, and the view out our window was of barbed wire and an ugly old concrete railroad bridge (though we were on the first floor; you'd have a better view on a higher floor). The neighborhood didn't feel unsafe, but is on the scruffy side. On the plus side, it's a fantastic location in terms of what is nearby. For sports, it is only a few blocks from Hadlock Field (SeaDogs) and the Portland Expo (RedClaws)--it'd be hard to stay closer for either. It's also very handy to Maine Medical Center and I-295. A bus line (#5?) goes right past, and it's also quite handy to the Greyhound station and the Amtrak/Concord station. They offer shuttle service to these places, but note that they refuse to offer shuttle service downtown or to the Old Port. If you're up to walking, you can get to Longfellow Square in about 15-20 minutes and the far end of the Old Port by the ferry terminal in about 40. Overall, not dramatic, but if you want a clean place near downtown with an okay breakfast and parking included, it's a good choice.

Room Tip: The motel has three floors. You might get a better view if you are on the top two.

I reiterate the good experiences of others--breakfast, comfort, customer service. And, I'd add that for a small city, the access to public transportation is very good. You can walk, take the METRO bus, or use the La Quinta shuttle to and and from the Amtrak station/regional transport center. The train from Boston takes about two hours and La Quinta is quite convenient to this and the Concord Bus station. One can also take a METRO bus to the old Port, the Portland Museum of Art, and other downtown attractions. The stop(s) are a block from the motel.

Stayed at the La Quinta in Portland again. It's a great hotel to stay if you have pets traveling with you. They stay for free!!
Rooms are clean and basic, with a breakfast in the morning.
