Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by If your a smoker your fine This Hotel is the only hotel i have stayed in that had no options for none smokers available I had to stay in a room that smelt like a stale ashtray, and made my nights stay very uncomfortable all night with very little sleep My clothes smelt the next day of stale smoke even my suitcase and clothes smelt inside when the case was left open for a very short time May 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bed was very comfortable--loved the sheets!! Very enjoyable stay and enjoyed the Art Museum right across the street. May 8, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Love Portland I love visiting Portland and Holiday Inn by the Bay is a wonderful hotel. It is located in town with a wonderful view of the harbor. The rooms are comfortable and clean. We have used the park and fly package often and it is nice not worrying about my car while on vacation. May 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location in a Great City We stayed in Portland for a couple nights in late April. The location of the hotel can't be beat - and be sure to pony up the extra few dollars for the bay view room. You can walk to all the shops and restaurants in the Old Port area and after a day of walking it is nice to get back to the room and relax and enjoy the view. Staff is friendly and efficient, rooms are nicely appointed and clean. May 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable hotel I had a nice corner room with a great view of the bay. Appreciated the upgrade. The hotel is a bit removed from the shopping in the Arts area and the waterfront, but the hotel shuttle is usually available to take you down that way. May 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best View in Portland As always we enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn by the Bay. The rooms are very nice and clean and you can't beat the view. Parking is right there at the hotel and you are in a great location near everything in the middle of the Old Port. May 4, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by uncomfortable beds Staff with no personality, even the children woke up with hurt backs from beds. May 3, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Very Disappointed For the last ten years or so I have loved this hotel. Things change. After my stay in April 2013 the parking charge was added. They no longer welcome club members with their hospitality bag. Also, they no longer give the free drink cards for each night of stay for members. Sounds like they don't want my business. May 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Delightful experience! The hotel was a treat a usual. This was our third stay with you and between the facility and your staff....it was a great experience! May 1, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good place to stay in Portland This was my third stay at this property. It is clean, well maintained, and close to everything downtown. The quality of service at the front desk has improved very much since my previous visits. April 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a great stay. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. April 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Temperature Room was comfortable but fan ran all night long. it ran all the time. When room reached preset temperature heat would shut off but fan would blow cold air until temp dropped and then heater would start and hot air would blow until preset temp was reached and heat would shut off and unit would blow cold air. Fan never shut off. April 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NEAFWD Excellent location to take advantage off everything Portland has to offer. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Would recommend the facility for a conference or a family visit to the bay. April 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice hotel, but eat somewhere else nice lobby, friendly staff, room could have been vacuumed much better, poor meal. April 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Hotel We only stayed one night but got the upgraded room. It was very nice and very spacious. It had a nice updated feel to it. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The only thing that was annoying is that they charged us an additional $10.00 upoin arrival for parking. I think this should be included in the rate. There was plenty of parking available and we did not go in and out. We parked when we got there and walked to our destination. April 16, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Smoking Room not Wanted Very disappointed that I was put in a smoking room. Left a message for the manager to call me, yet I never received a call back. April 13, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great people the staff are very friendly and helpful. the room are clean. the meeting room chairs are really uncomfortable after sitting there for some time, could use different chairs but otnerwise was very enjoyable conference April 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Value, Comfortable Stay I don't usually stay at a Holiday Inn. This one was so nice. Clean with a very friendly and efficient staff. I had forgotten a couple of items; and, no problem, they had travel sizes ready. I would recommend and definitely stay here again. Plus free shuttle to airport. April 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Front Desk Staff Great location! Front desk staff could not have been more friendly at check in and throughout stay- also the shuttle service was a great feature and great convenience! April 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable rooms and good service Except for no elevator directional markings on all but the Lobby floor, which was a huge inconvenience, I greatly enjoyed my stay. April 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hotel a bit pricey, comfy bed, too firm pillows, did not deliver rolaway Despite repeated requests hotel never delivered rollaway. When I checked out and reported that fact at desk -- staff member was sincerely and very apologetic. Arrangements seemed to go well for the conference. Meal service was slow during major meals, not enough wait staff. April 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good location, Super Clean This was one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. Everything sparkled - elevator doors, bathrooms, lobby etc. The staff was exceptionally service-oriented and when I asked for things (I forgot to pack toothpaste), I had them in minutes. My only few small issues were with my room. First, it was March in Maine but the room was extremely hot. I put on the air conditioner but it was very, very noisy. Further, all 4 pillows on my king bed were gigantic. Very firm and absolutely huge. I had to get up at midnight and use 2 towels in a pillowcase instead of the pillows; since they give you 4, you would think they could mix up the sizes. In addition, there was hardly any vanity (just a sink) so I had no place to put my toiletry bag and it was hard to apply my makeup because I had to put things on the floor. Lastly, I stayed only one night and they put the express checkout bill under the door during the night. When I went down to breakfast, I returned to find my room had been cleaned. I was in the room for another 2 hours and used a towel, threw out trash etc. When I checked out at the front desk, they said, "Oh, it looks like you are already checked out." Hmmm... I hope they checked the room again before the next customer came in. Overall, a very nice hotel. April 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brief visit to Portland The hotel was very well located, walking distance from the center of old Portland. The staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend it. March 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very clean hotel! I was impressed by how clean this hotel was! Not a spot of dust anywhere, windows were sparkling, and staff was always presentable. The food we had during our conference was average. I am not sure if the committee I was with chose the food selections or the hotel did but the breakfast only had 3 choices. Lunch and dinner however were good. I guess the only negative things were that I had to pay $10 per night to park in the hotels garage and that there aren't any food vending machines in the hotel. March 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel in a great little city The Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland Maine is a nice, comfy, clean place. I was there for a conference and the room value was great. The restaurant value not so much. I looked up prices - thinking I might go there on my own sometime - and the regular rates aren't nearly as good as the conference rates. The rooms, meeting rooms and lobby are comfortable and attractive. The parking is somewhat inconvenient. The basement garage is too small and the next-door garage is an uphill block walk. Not so good with luggage. The staff was very helpful. The restaurant was mediocre and overpriced - usual hotel fare. March 19, 2014
