Phippsburg, Maine
Reviewed 8 December 2016

Rooms... clean and spacious, nicely furnished. Staff... courteous and efficient. In fact my only complaint is my wife snores as loud or louder here than at home. Surely a night of sleeplessness warrants some extra airmiles, a complimentary mini-bar or at the very least free ear plugs.

Portland Maine is awesome. Every type of food mixed with plenty of shops for browsing. Start with breakfast, stop for brunch have lunch then a late day snack don't forget dinner and then a night cap. You'll walk it all off before the end of your visit if you enjoy being there as much as I do. LL Bean is...

MOST COMFY BED EVER!!! I had the best sleep ever at this hotel due to the most comfy bed. The room was super clean too! Check in was effortless and hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating :) I will stay at this location every time I'm in this area for sure!

Pros: Friendly staff, breakfast is decent, room large (King suite) Cons: The hallways and my room did not smell very good -- eventually I thought that maybe some people were smoking, or maybe people smoke by the back entrance and the smell moves through the building. That, combined with food and other sources get into the rooms from the hallways?...

We stayed here at a group rate for the Dan Fogelberg Celebration Weekend. Very nice staff on all shifts. We booked a King Suite. Comfy king bed, nice sitting area, desk & a kitchenette with a Keurig! Target is not far down the road so we stocked up on our favorite K-Cups. They are running a w/e promo thru 12/18/16...

Starting with a very warm welcome at the desk and on to a large room, clean and in very good condition. Common areas were well appointed and cleanb. Staff engaged with a"good morning". The breakfast area is fairly large and the selections are ample. There was nothing running out. It is a testament to quality that there was an employee...

I've traveled frequently, staying at different hotels, including the IHG brand. On this trip, I booked a suite, considering I would be in the area for a few days and I wanted to indulge/pamper myself a little more. Walking from the parking lot into the back entrance way, should have given me a clue. The floor was dirty, with noticeable...

... For less than $100 we thought it was decent value. Plenty of breakfast options (including apples, oranges and bananas) kept us going until lunch. Suite was spacious (bigger than our NYC apartment at least). Decent bathroom with nice soaps and shampoos. Pool wasn't up to much and the gym was standard but reasonably new equipment.

ON THE PLUS SIDE The hotel was very clean, quiet, and very convenient. The pillow-top bed was wonderful! Some guest arriving at 1 or 2 am were quite noisy as they got off the elevator, but that was not the fault of the hotel. The staff were generally friendly and helpful.

Reviewed 24 September 2016

The room was very large for a Holiday Inn Express and, because we were on the 6th floor, had a view over the area. The only negative about it was that there was very little fruit at breakfast (I had a banana and I think there were apples and oranges but no mixed fruit).
