The best hotel we stayed at for this vacation. To bad we only had one night there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the airport"
We were impressed with the hotel. Clean, comfortable beds. My only disappointment is we were told they had shuttle service to the hotel. We had an early flight, they contacted a cab for us, and they were there on time, very pleasant, except we had to pay for the service. Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel Handy To I95"
Enjoyed our two-night stay. We booked a room close to the outdoor pool and inner courtyard. After we did it we thought it might be noisy, but it was very quiet and convenient. The room was very clean with thick towels, good-quality sheets and comfortable beds. The remote control did not work, and the next morning when I reported it to the front desk […] it was replaced by the time we returned from our day trip to downtown Portland. We did not have the continental breakfast, but we did have dinner in their dining room (Zachary's) the last night and found it quite good with an cheerful, attentive waitstaff.

We had a wonderful time @ Fireside Inn & Suites. The breakfast was good, the staff was friendly, and the room was clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Value hotel in Portland."
Lobby was nice, dining area was nice, personnel were friendly and helpful. Hall and room carpets need to be replaced along with the furniture. It was ok for a few nights but just didn't feel quite as clean as I'd like.Genuine Expedia guest review
our rooms had a very musty smell when we arrived, Has to open windows. We had 2 rooms, room 1, tv did not work, room 2 refridge did not work. Reception was unaware that there was a 1/2 marathon in town, when i asked for a late check out because of the race, they offered me 1 extra hour! They day before when we inquired, they said it would not be a problem […] but need to call the next day, and would be able to request a time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice clean hotel."
Would love to have some hot items added to the breakfast menu, like eggs and bacon.Genuine Expedia guest review
The area hotels are expensive and disappointing. This one in particular, at least our room was extremely humid almost moldy. It just wasn't kept well. Breakfast is disappointing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location for Airport and Amtrak"
Perfect for overnight to return the rental car and get good sleep for the next morning's Amtrak train. Very courteous staff at front desk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The sona and jauze room it OS not safety . Pool it is not deep enough. The breakfast it is not enough varity Not many to choose. It is ok Rate from 1/ 10 6Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We where a late arrival so I guess that's why we didn't get our whoopie pie expected at every check in. The instructions to find the elevator where very vague and not accomodating to a guest who had an obvious difficulty using stairs. The room had a certain smell once we finally found it. The morning receptionist i had to practically drag the words […] out OF her. The beds where not properly made. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great experience - highly recommend this hotel. We have stayed at other hotels and this one is by far superior!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Delivers solid performance"
Just an overnight stay in Portland on the way to further up in Maine. All staff members encountered were courteous, friendly, accommodating (front desk, restaurant room service, housekeeping). Very nice outdoor pool area and indoor pool is a good provision as well. Room was nice and clean, everything worked. Old-style CRT TV but good service. It's obvious […] that work is continuing to be put into the place to continue to renovate all the old Holiday Inn fixtures--there are a couple left but this is definitely a good value alternative to paying downtown/Old Port prices, and it's a quick 10 minute drive down there.

"Super helpful staff: prompt friendly courteous"
The staff here is fantastic. We encountered a mistake on the part of the cleaning crew, maybe because we had extended our stay by a night and something was misinterpreted, but in any case, we didn't have any signs on the door but they didn't clean our room. Needless to say it was a shock to come back to unmade rooms at the end of a long day. The cleaning […] crew, however, doesn't work after-hours, so they couldn't fix our room. So, we requested to get a new room instead, and to our surprise, the front desk promptly set up new keys and sent someone down to help us move next door to a new room. Completely hassle-free. The staff were very considerate and very helpful. Also, right when we checked in, they gave us a complementary dog bowl and some whoopie pies! After being at a bunch of hotels where the entire pet interaction was something like "ok, we can take pets but $10 fee each day, okay?", it was a fresh change to hear an actual welcome for your dog too. Overall, great attitude and courtesy on the part of all staff members we encountered, from front desk to breakfast staff to after-hours crew. They made this place our favorite stop on the whole trip!

Cig smoke odor strong. Dust thick under furniture. Area convenient to airport and eateries. Would be a 4/5 if update to room and cig smoke odor were addressed. Staff friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pictures do not match what it really looks like."
Breakfast room very tiny. Staff were not helpful and when asked if they could help, there was attitude! Coffee pot in room did not work properly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Conveniet stop for last minute arrangements"
Although the staff were quite nice, the pool was dirty, and the room amenities were lacking. The cleaning service did not change the sheets, and took the towels and bathmat, but did not replace them on one occasion. The place is quite old, with an analog tv and plastic cups. The continental breakfast consisted of dry cereal and a giant bowl of soupy […] fruit; however, the restaurant serves a lovely breakfast. When visiting the lounge after a long journey to Maine from North Carolina, we were asked to pay a cover charge...when we explained our situation the "bouncer" let us in, where we enjoyed weak cocktails from a sub-par server. I had to go to the bar to get the check. Overall, I would recommend this place if you needed a last minute stop when plans change. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice overnight stay"
For what I needed -- an overnight stay on the way to drop off daughter at camp -- it was perfect. Very nice people at the front desk, room was quite clean, and the beds were exceptionally comfortable for someone coming off a long drive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to UNE"
I paid extra to have a pool side room. The tree outside was overgrown and the window was permanently fogged. No view of the pool! Should have saved my money for breakfast. The free continental breakfast was awful and the breakfast in the restaurant overpriced.Genuine Expedia guest review
I thought it was a great deal for the price. Good amount of space, very comfortable, everything worked and was up to date, no ugly furniture.Genuine Expedia guest review
"hotel comfortable, staff good in a crisis"
Fireside Inn is an older hotel, but that's part of its charm. The rooms and lobby are a bit more spacious. All is very clean. The breakfast is sparse, probably because there is a restaurant attached to the hotel, where we enjoyed dinner one evening. Guests in one of the rooms adjacent to us had a loud argument at 2:30 one morning, and we called the […] front desk. The staff member went to that room immediately and knocked on the door, and returned and did so again when the argument continued and we called a second time. After that, it was quiet. Next morning we requested a different room and got it, with an upgrade. We were very satisfied with the way the hotel handled this unpleasant situation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice stay for one night."
Not quite as nice as the pictures indicate and not as nice as other hotels in this category in this city.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Okay stay, but..."
Stay was okay, nothing extraordinary. The continental breakfast was meek. The biggest complaint would be a very poor wifi. The connection was extemely slow and streaming anything either didn't work or was just painful. With today's business and entertainment technology, high speed, reliable wifi is a must. It's just expected.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable and quiet stay."
I found the check in to be easy, and though the lobby smelled like popcorn at a movie theater, and the location of the motel was adjacent to strip malls, the room was quiet and comfortable for the one night I stayed there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for business, family"
Very pleasant stay. Room is a little run down, old TV, noisy heating unit, but exemplary staff rivals any 4-star hotel in any major city, towels were fluffy and big, continental breakfast is certainly adequate, restaurant OK (tho closed on Sunday!). All in all, a very very good experience. Convenient to the TurnpikeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel"
My husband and I stayed there one night after 14 hours on a plane. It was great! Very clean and beds were very comfy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good....exactly what we needed at this time....clean but older than i thought.....satisfied overall...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We really enjoyed our stay. The only thing that was of concern was that the breakfast buffet choices should have given guest a little more options.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only problem is the hotel has a very slow wireless internet service. They are still running on old 802.11b service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel met all of our expectations and we would not hesitate to return. However, if your business is in Portland it is a bit out of the way. Also, there is nothing aesthetic about the area, which is strip mall and commercially orientedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Bed was comfortable but overall condition of hotel was old. If you are looking for a nice place to stay this is not it. Stay here only if you do not care for appearance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I found this to be a very nice hotel at an exceptional price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"OK but not stellar."
Friendly and attentive hotel staff. The hotel needs a bit of updating and the indoor pool is not heated or if it is not much.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great stay, convenient and great value"
This was a Gem on our trip to Maine. Lovely ,comfortable spotless room and great breakfast! A wonderful way to start our 12 day tour of Maine. Skip was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and other things to see and do.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the price"
Hotel is ideally situated right off I-95. Staff is friendly, room is clean, price was okay. But the hotel definitely needs some updating.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well pleased with everything"
We were very pleased with our hotel stay at this hotel. It was very clean and well kept. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was adequate. We didn't use the pool so we can't say anything about that other than it seemed well kept also. The location was very good for what we came for, which was sightseeing.Genuine Expedia guest review
online photos are misleading and outdated. Hotel is run down and requires updating. I travel a great deal and would never recommend to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stay in an unacceptable dirty room first night and we requested to change a better room next 2 nights.Genuine Expedia guest review
Inexpensive compared to other Portland hotels. Good rate and quality room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Time to freshen up..."
The accomodation was fine, but a little basic and - I guess - old. It could do with something to freshen things up. Too many hotels look like they were designed and decorated by my grandmother, and in this case she was held to a tight budget. By contrast the band that played in the bar on Friday night were pretty good for a bunch of young whipper-snappers, […] and all the staff were very pleasant. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This motel had a nice breakfast and clean comfortable rooms. The two pools indoor and outdoor were great. My kids talked about how much fun they had at the two pools our whole vacation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comments about Fireside Inn in Portland, ME"
The staff were extremely nice and helpful when we were looking for restaurants to go to. However, our room had this terrible smell. Thankfully we did not spend much time in the room. Really only to sleep and shower..and THANKFULLY we brought candles with us, which we had lit the entire time we were in the room. The maids came daily to clean but that […] smell would not go away. Quite disappointing. The need to remove the carpets or something and maybe repaint to rid of this horrible odor. Would not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Wonderful room, great hotel and staff, excellent food in the restaurant. Would definitely stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for mthe price."
Overall a pretty good place- good access to downtown Portland- 10-15 minute drive- free breakfast was fine- nice to have free internet access; nice outdoor pool; good (small) jacuzzi; good cable TV selection; and helpful / competent front desk staff for the most part. Room was good- roomy, good shower, etc. Only mess-up was one day the maid service […] missed making up our room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel for the money."
This is a nice older hotel. It looked like they were in the process of some woodwork remodeling while we were there. Very nice courtyard and outdoor pool. Unlike some of the reviews I read for the breakfast, we considered it very nice, no hot food, though. We ate breakfast at Zachary's restaurant one morning and it was very good and reasonable. Front […] desk service was excellent. We road the metro into Portland from the bus stop at Shaw's, easy enough to do if you are a visitor. #4 goes in, transfer to #8 to go to the wharf. Get a transfer ticket when you get on at Shaw's. Allow time to ride on the bus into town if you are scheduled to do something, at least 20 minutes I would say. It's cheap, just $1.50 or 75 cents if you are a senior. Taxi costs around $15 one way. Use the hotel taxi and ask for their $2 coupon. Quick, courteous service. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"clean hotel and great price"
I was nervous about this hotel because some of the reviews were not very good. We thought the hotel was fine...clean, and the staff was friendly. It Isn't fancy but it was clean and the price was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed our stay very much. Hotel employees were very helpful and courteous. The Continental breakfast was very good. We found our way to downtown very easy to drive. We would stay at the Fireside again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
