Booked the place through http://www.travelinnlewiston.com/
The reservation did not reach the reception. Fortunately, we arrived early, before checked in time. Tammy at reception was able to get us a room for two nights.
The price is the best in town, at least according to Orbitz.com . The price was so much lower than any motel we could find in Portland and Freeport. It is hard to set high expectation. As long as the room is clean, that's all we hope for.
There was an disagreement between the rate on the web site and what was quoted by the lady. After showing the proof of reservation, Tammy happily honoured the lower price.
BTW, Tammy is very pleasant and helpful.
All rooms were listed as non-smoking. However, our room have the typical ordour of a smoking room. As we are both non-smoker, we were very sensitive to the scent of the room. Bought a bottle of fabric freshener (think Febreeze), spray about a quarter of bottle upon checking in.
Our Tom Tom GPS was off by about half a mile. Luckily the Inn was easy to notice during the day and night.
Sheets were clean and odourless.
Bath room was recently updated, though not very professionally done.
Our room was one of the few w/o "Non-smoking" sign on the door. Majority of the rooms are labelled with NS sign.
Heater was not on. Tammy gave us another blanket.
The smoking odour was the biggest turn-off for us.
The fabric freshener helped a lot, but can't get them all. The mattress breathed whenever we turned. =(
The second night we came back, we had to respray fabric freshener.
We stayed for two nights, and received no room service.
Most other motel/ hotels charge twice as much for weekend. Travel Inn does not.
Poor -- we were very sensitive to the ordour.
Be sure to ask for a never been smoked before room.
This could end up being a great value.
