Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Matt&Kim A decent stay.
The Holiday Inn at Bangor was a nice stay and I would have given it 5 stars if not for a few items (one of them somewhat bothersome).
The staff were extremely friendly and greeted us right away. We signed in and received the TAMC medical discount without any problem. We were given our passkeys and directions to our section which was #5. It was extremely easy to find and the grounds were well kept with a lots of nice trees.
The hotel was clean and so was the room at first glance. In fact, the issue we discovered wasn't until showering in the morning. Until then, the room appeared spotless. The TV appeared on the dark side... Maybe time to replace it, but there was no way to turn up the brightness. You can't adjust hotel TV's like you can in your home. Either way we had to deal with it.
The pool was really nice. Just check it every once in a while to fish out the occasional band aid and other foreign objects that end up in pools. No big deal and we enjoyed the swim.
The beds were comfortable as you would expect from a Holiday Inn, however the pad they put under the sheets for some reason kept coming off in the night as if it were too small. My wife and I had to get up 3 times to pull it and tuck it back under the mattress. Not that big a deal, but a little annoying.
The room was quiet, and the AC worked well. No other complaints about the room, but the bathroom was another story.
AT first glance, the bathroom appeared spotless. We had no issues until the next morning when it was time to shower. I'm guessing one of the previous guests was somewhat hairy.... Well, without being too graphic.... There is nothing pleasant being in a shower with all these hairs on the walls or the corners of the tub. It looks as if it were cleaned but done poorly. A real downer!!! Next time I will check the shower upon checking in. I'm more than certain the Holiday Inn would have rectified the problem if I brought it to their attention, except at 6 am it would not have been that convenient for anyone to ask for another room.
Well that's my complaint. Other than that, this is a nice place to stay. I would stay here again, but just check the shower first. LOL.

Of course I worry that a Holiday Inn is an Express, as I like a full service kind of place. This is an exception. As far as I can see the only reason that it has this designation is that it does not have a restaurant, and next door in the Marriott is a great bar and eatery. This hotel has big rooms, is quiet (although you can see the turnpike and airport, which it is a short shuttle from), and has good beds and a nice, though very American, buffet. The shuttle will also take you to the Maine Mall and local areas, from where buses (slow but regular) will take you into town. Nice staff here too. Pool ordinary. Overall very good choice for us.

I have stayed at this location many times now and it is starting to get a little run down. Although it is nice having the restaurant attached, the service or lack of can be a little frustrating. It became clear that the asking room price is out of line when you take the time to look around at the room to the paint peeling off, chipped or broken items and the past smell of smoke that can't be covered with spay although they try. For the money, there are nicer locations in Bangor

On I-95 and close to the airport. Clean room. If you are visiting Bangor or just driving through it'll do the job for a few nites' stay.

We were tired after a long drive, had no prior reservation, and were accommodated graciously and expansively. The staff were incredibly friendly and obliging. The comfort of the hotel was top rate, and the surroundings very pleasant. All amenities that we used worked fine.
