“Ok for quick night”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

Ok hotel. No fridge in room. Pool was very cloudy. Staff wasn't overly friendly. Room was quiet. Toilet acted as though it would clogged anytime. Very slow flushing. Water was cloudy. Nice hot water for shower.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with family

This stay began all wrong. Made reservation through AAA at the Howard Johnson in Portland Maine. When we arrived around noon I was going right by on our way to final destination. Figured I's see if I could check in early. We have stayed there several times. and it's OK. Se my reviews. The lady at the desk said she did not have us. She checked with the HoJo in So. Portland, about 10 miles in opposite direction, and low and behold they did. She had no rooms available or I would have switched. So, we went to So. Portland. When I checked in and explained the situation to the clerk she seemed less than interested, When got up the next morning I started to make coffee and happened to check the coffee maker. There was mold in several places. There was no shampoo in the bathroom. My wife noticed that the after shower body lotion had been used by a previous guest and not replaced. The lampshade had a ring of mold around the top. We were wakened Monday morning about 6:45 by the trash dumpster truck picking up and dropping the dumpster. While I was shaving there was a large ant crawling up my leg and another on the bathroom floor. The wallpaper in several places was peeling from the walls. I firmly believe because I booked this through AAA and got their discounted rate we were given a room away from the main building and in the utility section well away from the main inn. When we checked out Monday morning the clerk did not ask if we enjoyed our stay or if everything was fine. We will not stay there again.

Room Tip: Go to another inn.

We liked the place, very accessible and a good price, staff gave a good service and are really helping. In general it's a nice place but as for the cleanliness of the room, it could be better, without doing any extraordinary work, just regular basic but efficient cleaning....
