“Adequate”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

I needed a place in Portland that was a reasonable drive from the airport and at a good price. Many hotels were on the order of $90+ and a room here was only $71 (AAA rate). For that price, expectations are not high and those expectations were met.

The hotel is "OK". Front desk staff was friendly and efficient. Location was so-so (a challenge to find, neighborhood looked midland at best, few places to eat nearby), unless you're looking to go to a Portland SeaDogs minor league baseball game, then it's ideal - less than a block away.

This place is very clearly a make-over of a hotel from the 70s or thereabouts. Bathrooms were "tired", many walls looked hastily painted, old electrical outlets with new paint or covers on them, weak carpet and room furniture. The bed was fairly comfortable, but also seemed a bit worn.

Breakfast appeared to be skimpy - just bagels, chemical juice and such - so I skipped it and went to "Becky's" down on Commercial Street, seeing as they were famous for their breakfasts.

My room was pretty quiet. No significant noise from the street, neighboring rooms or the hall. A good surprise there.

Checkout went smoothly and the bill was right.

Overall, for $71+tax, it did the job... thus, the title of this review: "Adequate"

Within walking distance of Dogfish Cafe and other eateries (from fast food, to pretty good). Clean rooms, great rates, friendly, accommodating staff. Great value.

We found this hotel quite by accident. Just looking for inexpensive accommodations for 2 nights in March in the Portland area. LaQuinta came up in the search and we stayed 2 nights for $125 all taxes in. The rooms were lovely with a comfy King bed and clean bathroom. We had a fridge and coffee maker as is pretty standard. It was not at all noisy although the train runs behind this hotel, it goes slowly and doesn't blow the whistle. The breakfast area was large enough to accommodate quite a few people however one complaint would be that they use a liquid spray on the waffle maker because I did not see one come off the griddle in 1 piece as it should. Small thing but it was frustrating. I would definiately stay here again.

Good hotel in a neighborhood that is a little off the beaten path. Large clean rooms with wireless internet that was really good. Overall a good value for the dollar spent. because things are not really located in the area, I highly recommend the Portland Pie Company for in room dining. They do deliver to the hotel. Seafood Stuffed Mushrooms are really, really good.
