Standard room. Nothing special. Desk staff helpful and efficient. They offered to upgrade my room which is very nice, but I could not accept this time. That was appreciated.
Got to room and went to put food in fridge and found two pizza boxes in fridge? how well did they clean room? Bartender on duty from 5pm until 8pm was slow, surly and in the wrong business.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by forthebirds66 One of the few (only?) major hotels downtown with shuttle service
Great location/great staff/great view - would be perfect if they put the airline crews distant from regular guests as their hours of arriving/departing make for erratic sleeping. Have stayed twice, will stay again.

I would rate this hotel higher if I had the chanceto spend more time. We did not arrive until after 9:00 and thus was unable to enjoy the ammenities provided or browse the surrounding area. The staff was very nice and professional.

Wonderful hotel. Convenient to Old Port. You can walk anywhere safely. Plenty to see, do and eat. We will plan a return visit to Portland perhaps in the fall.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GayleB Needs some improvement
We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. Wanted to point out a few things that could have made our stay better. Pool was dirty. Looked like dirt in the bottom of it. Dirty towels were everywhere and there were also large puddles of water everywhere. Although we really wanted to swim, based on the overall lack cleanliness, we opted not to. We took the breakfast option. We were offered the buffet or the menu with our 20.00 voucher. We opted for the menu. We were not told that the "coffee and orange juice" would be OVER 8.00 if we ordered off the menu. If we knew that we would have opted for the buffet at 12.00 pp which included the coffee and orange juice. Our breakfast bill was 36.00 which was much more than we anticipated for breakfast. Next time would step out for breakfast. We received the checkout statement under our door in the a.m. On the instructions it said leave the keys in the room. Big trouble with that is you need the key to get out of the parking garage. We had two cars behind us and all had to backup so that we could get out of the line to run back in to the front desk and get another key to get out of the paid garage. Hotel guests should be informed to hold onto their key until they exit the parking garage. This could have caused an accident with all of us having to backup.

On arrival, I was surprised to find $10 per night for parking
The AAA guide book specifically stated that this was the only hotel in the area with free parking

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

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by readerinvermont 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.

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.

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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wayne52 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.

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.

Would recommend the facility for a conference or a family visit to the bay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Theconks 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.

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.
