“Overpriced during the summer”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

I have stayed primarily at Choice Hotel properties for the past decade. This one is typical, but not as nice as many others. The breakfast cereal is stale and the rest of the food is only so-so. Our room was fine, a king, and was comfortable. However, I cringe when I have to pay over $140 for a room at a less than super hotel. The staff were fine, and the parking is spacious. There are several nice chairs outside for lounging. But the price leaves a bad taste. I realize that Maine hotels have to make their $ during the summer season, but.....Also our bathroom had some cosmetic damage from use over the years.

Room Tip: We had one facing the woods and it was quiet. Avoid ones near a staircase.

We were traveling down the coast of Maine and had a coupon for a night's stay. Check in was a breeze and the room was very comfortable. Shower had plenty of water pressure, Wi-fi worked great and the continental breakfast was just enough.

My husband and I were traveling Maine with no reservations. We choice to stay north of Portland since we had problems finding a room there on the way up to this area. We saw a few other establishments but were not impressed. They looked old and shabby. The front of the Comfort inn was beautiful, with a nice flower garden and porch. Very inviting so we took our chance. We were offered a room with 2 queens. I was very taken with the décor in the lobby. A beautiful fireplace, inviting seating and a staircase that had a landing and turned, all in wood. The desk clerk worked with us making sure it was affordable. The room was very comfortable and each bed had a choice of 2 firm or soft pillows. A nice plus. The room was a bit more expensive than we had paid during our trip but the breakfast made up for the difference. The breakfast room was quite big and there were 2 women tending to the tables and food. Along with the normal fare of continental breakfasts, there was fresh fruit in a bowl, peach juice, hot eggs and sausage. When I looked at the eggs, I asked my husband if he thought there was cheese in them. The one attendant said there was but if I could give her a few minutes she could make me a plain one. I was very appreciative. All the staff there was friendly beyond words. All in all a very pleasant stay.
Will definitely stay there again.

Hello willna18,
Thank you so much for your wonderful review of your stay and our property! We pride ourselves in our wonderful staff, and we are so happy that they succeeded your expectations -especially in our breakfast room. We love that the exterior of our hotel was alluring to you and that the interior was just as inviting. The fireplace is always complimented on, and if you ever visit in the winter it's a wonderful spot to warm up away from the cold! Hope to see you again soon.

Thank you,

We were very impressed with the sitting area just off the small lobby. Comfortable chairs and a fireplace that would be awesome to come in to on a cold night. The porches with the rockers was a wonderful touch too.
We loved the fact that the windows opened in our room. We are not particularly big fans of air-conditioning and a cool Maine night was much preferred over the hum of a machine.
The staff was great. Very friendly and very helpful.

Hello CTTravelers_too!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. There's nothing like falling asleep to the summer Maine air. If you ever visit in the off season, the fireplace in the lobby is a lovely way to forget about the snow and cold outside.

Thank you,

The new Comfort Inn sign and a recently rebuilt main entrance had us expecting a fresh rooms but we were disappointed. While the rooms had new light fixtures and furnishings the uncomfortable mattresses (sagging in the center), old carpeting and dated bathrooms left the impression of a job half-done. Most disturbing was that the entrances to the inn from the rear parking lot were unlocked during daylight hours - no need to swipe a room key to access the property, anyone could walk in.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are currently working on renovations within the hotel. One of these renovations will be new locks! The new locks will allow swipe access for guest room doors as well as the doors leading into the building. Therefore allowing only guests with keys entrance. We hope you'll make a return visit to see these changes.

Thank you,

We stayed only 1 night at comfort inn. check in was easy, front desk friendly. Right off highway. Room was clean, free wifi. Beds were incredibily comfortable. Free breakfast with hot and cold choices. Staff were great. Nothing to complain about and the price was right.
The only drawback is that there is a train line very close to back of hotel. I heard the train a few times in the evening and thought we might have a problem in the night but I did not hear it so maybe it stops around 10pm.

This is a typical Comfort Inn - great staff, comfortable large rooms, good beds, decent breakfasts and reasonable. price. The only problem was the WiFi isn't perfect throughout the hotel, but works well in the lobby and there's an excellent computer in the business center. A great place for a family on the road!
