Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarcoDiana Nice Hotel
We were on a family road trip to New England. This hotel was one of the last places we stayed. We were here two nights and enjoyed the hotel. The room was big enough for our family of five. The breakfast was great. The location made it easy for us to get around and the price was significantly cheaper than hotels near the waterfront which was well worth the trade-off.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 2nurses Couldn't believe it was the same place!
We travel to South Portland area frequently and this has always been our place of choice to stay. Boy what a surprise this time. Had to change room immediately after arriving due to lack of cleanliness. Next room smelled better but had HUGE cobwebs among other nasties including refrigerator that smelled so bad we didn't use it. Will be looking for another pet friendly.

My wife and I were very pleased with our stay. The room was large and comfortable, with a separate sitting area and small kitchen. The area was wooded and pretty quiet. The breakfast area was also large and comfortable, with a good selection of food.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NCarter Friendly staff and Good location
This hotel is outdated, however, they are working on updating it currently. Maybe it will be nicer in the near future. The staff is very accommodating. Pool is heated and very nice. No hot tub. They offer bigger than the average cup for coffee in the morning. Located near many stores and restaurants and easily accessible from the highway. Great location.

Little below average in comparison to other Holiday Inn Express I have stayed in. Overall a comfortable stay. Do not know if it was worth the price paid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jacobs Great staff and close to the airport
I stayed here recently and found it to be very accommodating. Nice atmosphere here and a friendly staff. I am a platinum member and was upgraded to a nice, comfortable and quiet room on the end on first floor. The 24 hr. shuttle is the best feature for someone leaving for the airport early in the morning. Breakfast hrs. could be earlier, but that is the case with most Holiday inn properties. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Starbuck 111 updating holel and we got an old room
Room smelled stale of old smoke and the part of the drapes were missing creating a privacy issue and letting the bright early sun in far to early.

More of a suite than your typical 'motel room' with refrigerator and microwave. Also some dinner ware should you need it.

We were in South Portland for three nights. Our room was really comfortable and the staff was really helpful. Our room was always cleaned before noon. It was always nice to come back to a clean room. Breakfast was awesome. We always stay at Holiday Inn Express when we travel.

There was a little confusion over the hotel shuttle in the morning, but it worked out in the end. I was not greeted as a Rewards member. The room was spacious, quiet and very comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Shopping Mecca
My wife and I stayed at this hotel recently, after we attended a concert at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine. The hotel is located only about 5-10 minutes from downtown Portland, which made it very convenient.
I didn't know this until we checked, but every room at this hotel is a suite! Everything about our stay was pleasing, from the friendly staff to the comfortable large room to the updated gym.
To close I wanted to mention how surprised we were to see the vast shopping options that were located almost within a short distance to the hotel. It seemed as if every retail store imaginable is represented in this small area, including a really nice mall.
Thanks for a great stay! We will be back!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jmoore12345 Some Room for Improvement
We have been staying here whenever we come into town to visit my mother. The location and price are competitive and the help is friendly, a little young, inexperienced and maybe overworked. We checked in late at night and there was no TV in the room. We feared that maybe the last occupants stole it and the motel did not know it. The young lady at the desk was nice and changed the room, but did not offer to come up to the floor and present the new keys herself. I had to go down and fetch them. I think it was because there was no one around to watch the desk. And there was no soap in the new room, but this time a TV. Halleluja. The next day, the exercise room was closed when it was supposed to be open and we had to ask someone to come down and open it. The next day, there were no towels or cups for the water in the weight room. Again, cheerfully corrected, but great hospitality requires better preparation.
I'm not being picky, people! Holiday Inn is not cheap and they boast to be the best.
And upper management should consider some simple changes in the common areas. First, have an automatic door at the entrance - at least not a door that requires you to PULL for heaven's sake! People got luggage! Yes, the storm door is automatic, but I was too busy cursing over setting my bags down and pulling those heavy doors to appreciate it.
And why in the world is there no microwave in the dining area????!!!!!!!! Whaddya mean I gotta go back to my room to heat my cold coffee?
Business area is mediocre. Just one computer in an open area. The printer is tricky and you will probably have to ask for the help to get your boarding pass printed.
The plusses remain big: A huge dining area with good continental-style choices. TVs in the exercise room that get all the stations. Spacious rooms with nice kitchenettes. Reliable internet that will not crash or ask you for authentication every half house. But management needs to tighten some things up.

I find myself in greater Portland on business about 4X each year.
This property does a fine job in all respects - and remains consistent as a hospitality provider.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 No control of the ice hockey teams that were on our floor.
This will be our first and last stay at the Holiday Inn. We stayed at the hotel for two nights with our two granddaughters. Both nights the hockey team players were loud and running up and down the halls. The second night I called the desk at 10:30 to ask that they come and quiet them down. They did come and do this. My question is why would you put us on a floor with these teams? This was very upsetting for us and our grandchildren. The price we paid was not worth it for what we had to put up with. This is not what we expected to have for a weekend getaway. I did send a letter to the manager of the hotel we stayed at with the events of our weekend stay there.
