“Good stopover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

We stayed here one night during our north-east coast road trip. There is easy access off and onto the highways without entering main downtown area.

Large clean rooms with lots of dining options nearby. Valet parking was the only option to leave the car on site. This seemed unnecessary as the car park was an open air affair about thirty yards from the entry.

Breakfast was included. Continental was sufficient, but we noted that the hot food offered was average at best.

I thank you for the nice review you gave about our hotel as a result of your recent stay with us in Portland. We greatly appreciate your comments.

I did want to explain the parking lot. It is not owned by the hotel. We lease the lot so that folks have a place to park while staying with us. Parking isn't such a big deal this time of year but during the summer and fall parking is really hard to find.

Also, just wanted to let you know we are working to make breakfast better.

Thanks again for staying with us. Hope we have that honor again in the near future.

I stayed here twice while on business in Portland.

This is an excellent property! Spotless and well appointed.
Clean, modern rooms, nice breakfast lounge and an excellent gym.

It is located in the Old Port District of Portland, Maine, which is a great spot to visit in the summer. It also means you can park your car and walk to a number of great restaurants. The two I enjoyed most were The Sebago Brewing Company (attached to the hotel) and my favorite restaurant which is called Fore Street, just across the street.

If you drive to this hotel you'll have to use the valet parking unless you find a public lot to leave your car. I opted for the convenience of the valet.

Very friendly and helpful staff added to an already pleasant stay. Probably the best Hampton I've stayed in to date.

Good hotel, well appointed for a Hampton Inn. Room was spotless, and well apportioned, however had a strange smell, redolent of onion perhaps in combination with some cheap cleaning agent. Opened the window while I had dinner and the smell was mostly gone on my return. Prevents me giving the hotel a five star review, otherwise a perfectly good place to stay.

Would mention that the views of the harbor are such that one is looking across the harbor at some large fuel storage tanks on the other side. So I would probably not opt for the extra expense of a harbor view room on the top floor on a future stay.

Hi and thank you for your nice review. I wasn't sure if you had our hotel when you mentioned opening windows, since ours do not open, but the review was good. If the review was for our hotel I thank you, and please come see us again. If not please come see us sometime.

This place must have been recently renovated. Everything was clean, well done design. Great staff. Loved our room. Great value in my opinion. Location was perfect for dinner and drinks in downtown Porltand. Very good buffet breakfast. Staff kept breakfast area clean even during heavy traffic. Would recommend to both business and family travelors.
