Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Norton Room 109 Poor Customer Service
This hotel is independently owned and operated by Puja Hospitality LLC. This company clearly puts their revenue ahead customer service. I make this assertion, because in my experience, the hotel Managers, Prakash and Amanda, are more concerned with enforcing fees associated with their policy than providing a quality experience for their guests.
After a long drive for meetings in Bangor, I returned in the evening to find that my room had not been serviced. The bed was unmade, waste baskets had not been emptied and used towels were where I had left them when I rushed out the door at 5:30 AM. I gathered my belongings and decided to find a hotel that provides Holiday Inn’s expected level of quality.
I advised Kaitlyn, the front desk clerk, that my room had not been serviced and that I was checking out. Kaitlyn didn’t seem to believe me, asking if I left the ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign out. She informed me that, even though her hotel’s staff failed to provide their standard service, she would have to charge me for that whole night. I hadn’t cancelled (or checked-in) before 6 PM the previous evening and after all, “…my things had been in the room all day.” I reminded her of my Platinum status and asked to speak with her manager. She called one of the 2 managers on the phone, who asked the same ‘Do Not Disturb’ question. On the phone, Kaitlyn told the manager that Christopher, the housekeeper, had signed-off on cleaning my room. To remove any doubt, I insisted that Kaitlyn inspect my room. She brought Christopher with her and we all agreed that this room had not been serviced.
The 2nd manager called at this point and Kaitlyn told him/her that the room definitely had not been serviced. I asked to speak to the manager, but he/she refused. Instead I was told that I would have to pay 50% of the room rate for early check-out.
I have stayed at IHG hotels all over the world. On many occasions, I’ve had to check out early due to schedule changes or other factors. Every other hotel has been accommodating. Sadly, both managers at this hotel refused to make it right.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ron19441005 Very good, not great
This particular Holiday Inn Express did not meet my expectations when compared to other Holiday Inn Express. Past experience with Holiday Inn Express had raised my expectations to a very high level. Most minor problems were handled appropriately, but some of the staff were a little less accommodating.

Stay here each time we are in Freeport after trying other local places. Holiday Inn Express is the best in the area. Great Location and staff attentive. We will return again. Thank you!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CycleT Better than adequate hotel
Overall, this was a perfectly fine stay. If we were to visit the Freeport, ME area again, we would look to see what other hotels were available simply because this stay was unremarkable. Of particular issue was the terrible lighting (yellow and too dim) in the bathroom and a shower head that was more of a faucet. Also, the pull-out couch mattress was so awful, it was truly laughable and should absolutely not be offered as a sleeping option. My sister and I opted to share a bed rather than sleep on that. I had heard good things about another Holiday Inn Express, so maybe my expectations were too high. I was expecting better than than just 'fine.' It was a very quiet hotel and the heating/cooling unit was blissfully quiet. The mattress was comfortable and the pillow selection was good. Kudos to the staff as well; they were very friendly, polite and helpful.
