I was really only expecting a very basic room and not much else. Given that, the rooms were a little more comfortable and clean than I had expected in this price range, there were a few extra perks like an indoor pool and a reasonably extensive breakfast.

Thank you geokos! Sometimes you just can't judge a book by its cover! I am so glad you opened up ours and discovered we are more than budget hotel - excellent staff, hot scrambled eggs and sausage in the morning, free Wi-Fi, and above all safety and cleanliness. Please come again! Chiara

I booked through Wyndham,, they did not give me enough beds.. in return I had to buy another room, I was very displeased, half my family was on the other side of the hotel, spending more money than I brought.

Close to Scarborough, where I was visiting. All I could ask for in a budget hotel. Very nice staff.

Hello bellakins8, Thank you for taking the time to review the Howard Johnson in South Portland! What did you like the most? Our heated indoor pool? Our fresh Belgian waffles for breakfast? Our clean rooms? I personally love seeing hot coffee out in the lobby all day - but I may be a little biased! Come see us again! Chiara

Good hotel at the price in a convenient location. Slow wi-fi, so we 'unplugged' for the weekend.

Dear USMC8541, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are indeed conveniently located between the Maine Mall and the beaches! Close yet far enough from the crowds and the noise! I do apologize for the Wi-Fi inconvenience - I will look into that. Did you enjoy our heated indoor pool while 'unplugged'? Come again! Chiara

I love traveling and seeing how other hotels run their establishment and cater to guests. Your staff was very friendly but the room was dirty. I had to clean it myself before I did anything else. The bathroom needed some serious attention and looked like the housekeepers just made the bed, vacuumed and threw towels on the rack and left....
