“Top Notch Service”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

The service given here is the Greatest! The saying you get what you pay for is what you receive when you stay at Hampton. if want to be treated like King or Queen this is the place to stay. When you enter the world of Hampton you got to the best you can enjoy.

I've been to Portland a number of times, but my G/F had not. Last time I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn right on the waterfront, but it was over $100 a night more expensive than the Hampton which is a block back from the water.

The experience here was excellent and I would rate this Hampton Inn above any of the others I have stayed in over the past 5 years. The building is new, all the staff - from the valet to the checkin people, to the breakfast staff were very friendly and really went above and beyond to help out.

The room was clean and quiet, the bed comfortable. We did eat breakfast there one day (it was fine - nothing inspiring or great, but can't complain about the price). We did not try the brewpub / restaurant on the corner because we wanted to explore downtown a little more.

The HGI is a little newer and a little fancier, but not sure there's a $100/night difference in it. If the price was the same I'd probably stay there, but no complaints at all about the Hampton and the value is definitely better in the summer

My husband and I had a last minute change of plans on a recent trip to New England and decided to spend a night in Portland. As we were driving I booked our room via the website. We got a decent rate for a King room. We valet parked the car with the understanding that we had unlimited in and out privileges. We ended up walking everywhere so it wasn't an issue. The check in procedure was quick and painless. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was also clean and spacious. There was no tub but that was fine for us. There were large windows. We were at the back of the hotel so our view was of the town, not the water, but it was still nice. The breakfast in the morning was hot and fresh. Nothing special - about what you would expect from a complementary breakfast at a chain hotel. There is a pub/restaurant attached to the lobby. We had a drink at the bar but no food. All in all we were quite pleased and would stay again if the price was right.

I could find no fault in the quality of service and amenities in this hotel. It is in an excellent location close to the bustling dock area and within short walking distance to many excellent restaurants.

I have stayed here once before...last summer and was very happy with our room. This time not do much. In fact, I'm quite disappointed. This room is very outdated and looks like a cheap motel room. On a positive, the staff was friendly and did let us check on early. If I stay here again, I'd request the room I had last year.

I stayed 2 nights at the Hampton Inn Portland, Maine. It was in an ideal location, close to the waterfront and restaurants in the area.

Check-in was quick and easy. When I arrived to my room, I was pleasantly surprised to see two nice big windows. They both looked out over the parking lot, but I liked the bright natural light that came into the room.

The room was nicely decorated and had a big screen TV. The bathroom with shower, was also large.

Sleep quality was very good. During my first night there, I woke up to a baby crying in the room next door, but the walls were so well insulated, that it did not disturb my sleep. I quickly drifted back to sleep.

The complimentary breakfast was nicely presented, and had a variety of hot and cold offerings. The dining area was comfortable as well.

I tool advantage of the complimentary shuttle to take me to my work location, and back to the airport for my departure home.

I would stay here again, and recommend it to others.

Room Tip: A room at the end of the hall will give you two large windows.

I recently stayed at this Hampton Inn in Downtown Portland, Maine where we were attending a wedding. We were very happy. The shuttle picked us up at the airport and took us to different restaurants, activities, and it was all complimentary. The drivers were very helpful and polite. The staff at the hotel was also friendly. The hotel was very clean, beds comfortable, and the free breakfast was very good. There is also free coffee all day. The location is great. You can walk all over the town and along the harbor. We ate two meals at the hotel restaurant and they were great. We had a full lobster dinner for $25.00 that was delicious.

Room Tip: eventide has great lobster rolls and oysters
