Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Freeport

Reviewed 17 September 2011

Relatively new property that presents itself quite well. Front desk staff were friendly and room was reasonable size with typical amenities. On the down side our room was on the back of the property with perhaps 100 ft to a main highway with considerable traffic at all hours. The resultant noise did not help with a night's sleep and likely to be a permanent shortcoming. Hot water was at a premium in the morning but this was a temporary problem that was being remedied when we left. Also the Holiday Inn free breakfast seems to be high on sugar and salt and low on fruit compared to at least one rival. This is not a problem specific to this site and may not be an issue for some. Cost was a tad high compared to several better performing
rivals thereby making this less than best value.

First off I want to thank you for leaving feedback. We have put into consideration adding more fruit to the breakfast area. As for the noise in the back we do appologize greatly. We are aware that this can be a problem for light sleepers as we are fairly close to the highway. We would love to have you stay with us in the future. If you do stay with us please call us directly and we will make sure you get a quiet room on the front of our hotel. Again thank you for your feedback.

Room was very clean and a good size. Our family of five was very comfortable. Complimentary breakfast was standard fair but served in a nice room with big screen TVs.

My husband and I just stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Freeport for a little getaway to Maine. We wanted to stay in Portland but the Holiday Inn in Freeport was $100 cheaper a night. The hotel staff was extremely nice and place was very clean. It was right off the highway and only 15 mins from Portland. We were only 5 mins from the outlets in Freeport as well.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone. They also have free breakfast.

I specifically asked for a room that did not face the highway. I arrived late at night and proceeded to the room. I had booked a double queen room. When I got to the room I found a king. Since there were three of us we couldn't switch. When I went back to the desk and requested the correct room I was told that all the doubles left were on the highway side. The noise from the highway kept me up all night. I would suggest that anyone looking at this hotel go to the Hampton Inn that is not right on the highway.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us. We are disappointed to hear that we didn't accommodate you in a way that is typical of the high standards we uphold as a Holiday Inn Express and Suites. I would ask of you to contact me directly so we can discuss your stay further and try to figure out why so many errors were made.

We have had more guests then normal recently check into rooms and come down and tell us they requested different then what we have assigned to them. Usually it is a third party site that made these guests their reservations. If booking through a 3rd party site we highly suggest calling the hotel to confirm details. I don't want to put the blame on them especially because I am unsure as to how you reserved you room.

Again we greatly appologize for the inconveniences you have experienced and I would love to talk further so that we can prevent this from happening in the future.

Was there for a few nights on business so wasn't particularly interested in all the amenities offered, but some of the basics weren't really up to par with other business hotels I'm used to.
- lumpy pillows, sheets not as soft or fine as other hotels like Hiltons etc.
- smelled like a Holiday Inn motel - memories of my childhood where we would pull up to a Holiday Inn motel impromptu
- breakfast was provided but on disposable plastic / styrofoam plates. Egg and sausage patties looked uninviting....probably best to stick with cereals, yogurt, fruit and other baked goods.

On arrival, there was a line of people waiting to check in. The key coding machine was inoperable, so the staff couldn't issue keys. They did, however, run guests to their rooms and let them in with their master key.

The room was clean and comfortable--pretty much a standard HI Express room. Mine faced the Interstate highway (about 100 yards away) and there was some traffic noise. If you're a light sleeper, you may want to ask for a room that faces US 1.

The location is a few miles south of the hustle of all the shopping in downtown Freeport, so you would need to drive there from the hotel.

Finally, the receptionist offered up several suggestions for nearby restaurants.

While not the perfect stay, I would return.

Thank you for taking the time to leave such an in depth review of our hotel. Feedback is the best way for us to follow up on issues we may not be aware of.

That being said, we are sorry for the inconveniences you experiences while checking into our location. The key card machine has never given us any problems up until the day you arrived. Of course it happen to malfunction on one of our busiest days of the year!

The highway is fairly close to our location which some people like because of how convenient it is however if you are a light sleeper it could be a bit of a problem if you are on the back of our hotel. The rooms on the front are much quieter and we would be happy to assign you a room on the front if you call us directly!
If you are ever in the area again we would love to have you stay with us! Call us directly and I will be sure to assign you a room on the front and even upgrade you to a suite at no additional charge!
