“Nice Stay!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We were looking for a place to stay in Portland as a quick stopover on a long trip. We found this for the right price and, despite some of the reviews, decided to take a chance. When we arrived we were greeted by friendly desk staff and asked if we had a floor preference. Our room was spacious, and the beds were comfy. The pool and pool area were nice as well and provided the perfect activity before checking out and continuing on our way. I did hear a few guests at the desk talking about issues with their room, and the employee took it seriously and relocated them immediately. This hotel is nothing fancy, but is clean, has a great location just of I-95 and 295, and has nice staff. There is also a mexican restaurant attached to the hotel where we had a great dinner!

Reviewed 25 June 2014

This property has one of those weird designs where halfway down the hall you have to step up 3-4 stairs....we have a baby, enough said. I asked to be moved. the room we got (maybe 124-rigth across from the pool) had a hole in the wall and peeling wall paper. it was dirty and uncomfortable. its fine for a night but I won't go back.

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.
