Hampton Inn Portland Airport
Ranked #1 of 13 Hotels in South Portland
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 September 2014

we were looking for a place to stay during labor day weekend and this hampton had the best value, as opposed to staying in downtown portland and paying $350+ for one night. it's about 7 minutes from downtown and the other shopping areas and convenient to get to. you could hear the planes taking off and landing, but that's not a big deal to me and didnt notice it after a while.

the hotel is clean and the lobby is very welcoming, comfortable and modern. the gym has two treadmills, one elliptical and a set of weights and one yoga ball and two mats. overall, we had a very pleasant one-night stay and do recommend staying here. we would again!

Stayed out here instead of downtown Portland to save $130 a night and it was worth it. Yes, it would have been convenient staying downtown and not having to find a parking spot everyday but the savings was the key. It was only a 10-15 drive downtown to the Port. Breakfast was pretty good but going during the rush totally stinks. Go early or be prepared to deal with a jammed packed breakfast area and no place to sit. We grabbed our food and went back to the room. Staff was helpful with directions.

First of all, the name is misleading as this hotel is not that close to the airport. It is in South Portland across from the Maine Mall where there are other hotels for cheaper prices. I chose this one and paid $219 plus tax because I thought it was one of the hotels right outside the airport where we have stayed before. I should have done more research but when a hotel has the word airport in it's name, i think most people probably assume it's right there.
I was not impressed with the two young men behind the desk when we checked in. We were not told that there was a shuttle available that would have taken us to the Old Port, even though we asked for directions and expressed some concern about having to get back on the highway. We would have loved being dropped off and not having to worry about traffic and parking. We spent a night at the Portland Regency earlier in the week and were treated like royalty by every staff member we interacted with. What a difference in professionalism!
My main complaint with this hotel however was that the walls were paper thin. We had a family in the next room who weren't having a wild party, just talking and having a good time. Unfortunately, the fun went on until
12:40AM. It almost seemed as if we were in the same room...impossible to ignore. I thought I'd finally be able to sleep, but then a group of wedding goers came back at 1AM and proceeded to hang out in the lobby. They were very loud and apparently the people at the desk did not ask them to quiet down. I learned a lesson....never take a room on the first floor! It was a tough night, especially for the price.
Breakfast was typical, but the sitting area was very crowded and the area where the food was placed was very cramped. We've stayed at other Hampton Inns and the breakfast areas were much larger and there was no problem with noise. We won't stay here again.

This is my second stay at this location. Hotel was clean and confidently located for us. The hotel was quiet. The only annoyance was the smell of cigarettes from the smoking area below us - despite windows sealed.
Breakfast was decent - usual hotel fare. Staff was pleasant. Kiddos enjoyed the pool and I the fitness room.

We needed a place to stay for one night after flying into Portland, ME before driving to Bar Harbor. The Hampton was a great choice as it was convenient and welcoming. Nothing fancy but clean and accommodation. Has everything a traveler needs. Nice breakfast; well-maintained lobby area. Room was clean, but bathroom too small for two people.

Any business does well when things go right, this group performed under pressure. After and awful day of travel I arrived at 1 AM to find out the hotel was sold out and no room was available for my reservation. The desk clerk made it clear they would find me a local hotel and provide transportation. My cut rate hotel replaced themselves at their expense at more than 3 times the cost. Everyone make mistakes real pros fix they step up and took care of the problem.

Room Tip: I like first floor near the pool.

On our recent trip to Maine we stayed here for one night. We enjoyed our stay and would use this location in the future. The staff was very friendly and helpful answering questions about the local area. Very clean!!! The whole place was very clean. The location is a older building and the elevator was slower and stopped rougher than newer hotels. Great place and great customer service.
