Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by restless waunderer Very Clean and Quiet hotel in a very convenient location
Stayed here w/ other family members to attend a local wedding. The rooms were spotless and convenient- with a good sized dorm fridge and microwave; the channel choices on the tv EXCELLENT (and cable- no fuzz), the showers hot with good pressure. The hotel was QUIET in spite of the fact that is was full and there were plenty of children there.
The only issues were 1) The mattress is EXTRA firm- very unforgiving for anyone w/ back or joint problems. (Pillows were awesome though!) and 2) the AC was a tad loud and not thermostatically controlled.
The front desk people were so helpful and gave excellent directions and recommendations.
Would definitely stay here again when returning to area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JVW0516 Great hotel
This was our 2nd year in Portland ME and this was the hotel that we chose based on our experience from the previous year. This hotel is in a great location, close to the mall and dining places. The room had plenty of space and felt cozy. There was free breakfast buffet each morning, although I was hoping healthier food options, like whole grain stuff. They had Chiobani yogurt however. The prices of other hotels in this area were quite high, but this hotel had a reasonable rate for the quality it provides. For our next trip to Portland, we will definitely stay in this hotel again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Good Room, service, and cleanliness - poor fitness center
The fitness center was extremely hot... it was hard to run on the treadmill. No towels at 7:00 AM in the room. They came at 8:30 AM to stock the towels. One of the three treadmills was broken and the one I was on started to make a loud grinding sound.
Better ventilation and equipment is needed. Since a functioning fitness center is important to me I will not go back there on my next trip to Portland.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. It is a good value for our family of four and the breakfast is top notch.

This hotel has the following plus's for me.
Comfortable beds and pillows, dark room for sleeping and it's located in a quiet area. The overall appearance of the room was excellent.
The staff was really friendly yet professional from the front desk to housekeeping.
Breakfast is amazing the area is clean and organized and there is plenty of seating. Its about a five minute drive to the Portland Waterfront. We really enjoyed our stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beth14 Very Comfortable and clean
We stayed overnight for a wedding that was being held at the Marriott. We were very pleasantly surprised by the Holiday inn Express. Very comfortable bed and room. Very large and spacious. Very clean. We did not participate in the breakfast as we had other plans but the lobby had great coffee.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jbarr5 hotel stay
spent 2 nights in s. portland with family. rooms were fine, refigerator you could not adjust the coldness. should be a sink near micro and frigerator.
towels ran out in the pool area and we told an attendent. didn't care that 22 kids were allowed in at the same time, all yelling an dscreaming. was to much for us, we left.
hot coffee is available but they dind't always have covers for them. riding in the elevator we spilled some-an attendent saw it and radioed to front desk.
staff was great, roooms were great.
flying planes overhead were noisy at times.
rooms were not ready at arrival. we came back 2 hours later.
