May I suggest, to the management, that they keep a stash of stain remover on hand, so that when the server pours blueberry sauce in the hair and down the front of a customer while serving dessert, they can deal with the apparel ruining stains? And, perhaps, profuse apologies from the server (mistake barely acknowledged), and more apologies from the staff when asked if they could please clean the stains (response? "We don't do laundry"). And $380 (plus tax, plus 'occupancy fee' (what's that?!?!) for a tiny room, with no amenities? How about glass glasses instead of environmentally destructive plastic. And, actually, an ice bucket would be nice.
My suggestion? Stay in Portland, take the ferry ride to Chebeague, sit on the beautiful inn porch. Have a beverage and something to eat (the mussels are the best I have ever had). Maybe borrow a bike and take a ride around the island. But, get back on the ferry and stay in the Old Port.
