We had a great time. Hotel room was clean, no strange smells as other reviewers mentioned, hotel staff was friendly. The room was a good size, not too much noise leakage from other rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean room, nice hotel for a great price."
Though the room could use some updating, it was clean and comfortable. The hotel staff were very friendly. Didn't realize the location would be close to an industrial area, but the hotel was set back enough so traffic and noise was not an issue. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Impressive for a Howard Johnson's"
Very pleasant staff, room very clean, comfortable, amenities you wouldn't expect in a budget hotel like hair dryer and wifi included. Great restaurant for breakfast right next door "The Egg and I", also a good restaurant on other side next door, which I did not try. Convenient.... right off the highway. Excellent value for the money! Would stay there […] again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Oversold my prepaid room"
As with most bookings through expedia.com, my King room was booked and prepaid weeks in advance of my trip. When I arrived to check in, I was told that they had oversold and they would have to put me in a queen room instead. I was only staying overnight so I reluctantly accepted, and the attendant made no attempt at any sort of remedy. On the contrary, […] he actually tried to convince me that the queen room was just as good (I am 6'3" and I can assure you it is not), and acted as though I should be perfectly content with the room they were giving me instead of the one that I had PAID IN ADVANCE FOR. I'm normally one who will politely refuse when offered any sort of recompensation or extra amenities, even in situations such as these, but the fact that they made no offer of any kind still did not sit well with me. The room itself was passable, certainly no more than average at best, but had not been prepared for anyone's arrival in what was uncommonly warm temperatures for Maine in early June, so it was nearly 90 degrees when I walked in. I entered and left the hotel through the stairwell at the end of the hall and had to literally hold my breath for two flights of stairs because of the odor. In short, I would absolutely not ever consider staying at this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Had to switch rooms - the first room, a non-smoking one, had a very strong smoke odor. The second was OK. The second room had a very slow draining sink (I did report this to the front desk when we left). Staff were pleasant. Overall, the hotel had a less than clean feeling, but it was OK for the one night that I was there. I would not want to stay there […] for several nights. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay with dogs."
The hotel is fine. The air conditioners in the room are very noisy and makes for not a very good nights sleep.We requested a 1st floor room which was perfectly convenient as we were traveling with our dogs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very average all the way around. No smiles or hospitality extended. Counter staff seemed miserable. The room was clean but didn’t smell fresh. Overall a tired facility.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location, value"
Clean, convenient and inexpensive. Excellent! Very good place, well run. Good breakfast place on premises.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Memorial Day Weekend Stay"
The room was excellant. Housekeeping did a great job. The only negative is the on site restaurant, Season's Grille. Do yourself a favor, save your money, and go elsewhere. The waitstaff tries, but are not properly trained. The food we ordered, stuffed haddock had to be sent back because it was cold. The food then was dried out and tough because it was […] blasted with heat. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great for travellers on the go"
the hotel can best be described as having a friendly staff, convenient location, with a comfortable indoor pool. we found it to be quiet for sleeping, comnfortable for lounging around and an over all pleasant value. downtown portland is an easy fifteen minute drive away. we would recommend it for travellers who are likely to be on the go while staying […] there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Did the job"
Nothing to write home about. Average hotel, I found to be a bit out of date. Not as comfy cozy as I had wished. Appeared clean none the less. Great for the Price. Bit of a drive to downtown portland.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to stay"
Good location. Close to downtown Portland/ hiways WE had a restful night, ate breakfast at the adjoining Egg and I, and easily resumed our trip to northern Maine on the nearby hiwayGenuine Expedia guest review
"a full service complex, off the maine turnpike"
The room was clean and comfortable. Big TV and plenty of room. Hotel had a breakfast and Full service reataurant attached. Right of exit/entrance to Maine Pike. fast food and chain restaurants within a mile.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient right off highway"
There were children in the room over head.You could hear every step,jump,running.....It was not the value we thought.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Non smoking room was smoky"
The hotel room use to be a non smoking room but it still stunk of old cigarrets. I was told that it was just renevated but you could tell they didn't go all the way to get rid of the stale smell. they said someone before me could have smoked but you would think the cleaning staff would have taken care of it if it was a room that was just renevated a […] week before we got there. Plus the bed was as hard as a rock...good if you like it that way. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place, great location, good service"
We were staying in Maine for a family event - the hotel was in a perfect location, it was a nice room, and the staff was friendly and professional. The indoor pool and hot tub were a nice addition.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The perfect spot"
Great room. Great bed. Free wifi. Pool, hot tub, spa and work out area clean and open until 10PM. Close to everything I went there for. Great price. The only thing I missed was a continental breakfast and some complimentary coffee/tea.I would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value for the money"
Very clean; pool is warm. Restaurant for dinner has good food and service, and now the Egg and I is on the premises for breakfast. Everyone was friendly. Near enough the Old Port, beaches, and shopping to be convenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Found a vacancy to be readily available... Overall was ok for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is nice enough, but cleaning staff were mediocre on a good day. Spilled a drink on the sheet the first day I was there, and staff just re-made the bed. Bathroom never really cleaned, just straightened. Restaurant and bar were very nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nothing fancy but good solid spot to stay for a few nights. Walking distance to strip club as it is across the street.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to hwy 95"
It is fine place to stay. Especially for the price you pay. There are plenty of named chain restaurants such as Applebee, ruby Tuesdays etc, just keep in mind most of these places close at 9pm on weekdays. If you get there late, there is nothing in the vicinity to eat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value, clean room"
More than adequate room, good size, not noisy, though the walls aren't that thick, and I could hear other people running around in the room next to mine. Overall, a good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy access to most areas of Portland."

"Good hotel at an affordable price."
Was here for a symposium held at the hotel's conference center. Good clean rooms. Nothing fancy, but for the price, very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome Customer Service!"
The customer service here was fantastic! My travelling companion and I had an unexpected event come up and we cancelled 3 of my 4 nights staying there due to that. The night before we were due to leave, we found out that we could in fact stay in the Portland area. After my first night's stay there, I spoke with a Dianne in the morning and she was absolutely […] fabulous! She not only helped us to get all of the remaining nights there at a great rate. The room itself was great as well. However, the heating system was a bit loud and whenever we opened the outside room door, the plastic cover for the light in the ceiling would suction and create a loud noise. I WOULD BOOK A STAY HERE AGAIN!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"would stay again"
just a quick stop in Portland, and the HoJo there was perfect for the purpose. The location is convenient to the airport and within 15 mins of downtown. The room was clean and the staff friendly. The only real complaint is that the walls (and ceiling) didn't insulate for noise very well and my wife had trouble sleeping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room had a joining door and I could here every thing. One bed had a stain on top of sheet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had 3 rooms booked and 1 room was not clean and another had an issue with the tub not draining and was not rectified.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice, a little smoky"
Everything was very nice, room was bigger than usual, had a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, but the only negative was that it smelled like cigarette smoke, even though it said non-smoking and what was requested. Pool was nice, 2 hot tubs, plenty of room for you to swim and not be too crowded. Location was great, easy off the interstate and easy […] on. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and Quiet"
Hotel was clean and our room was comfortable and quiet. I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
I always stay at this hotel when I'm in Portland - Great value, great restaurant, and great staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great staff, great place to stay. Very accommodating and I would definitely stay there again! Thanks!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great but thin walls"
This would get a five, but the walls are thin and I had frisky neighbors. Otherwise it is clean, comfortable and well kept.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent room on a budget"
The location is convenient to the highway, but not intrinsically attractive. The hotel itself is simple rather than luxurious, but comfortable and clean. We appreciated having six pillows on the king-size bed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needs renovations desparately."
This hotel was filthy. It is unkept, needs repairs and upgrades galore, could use paint and general repair. The staff was great, the beds clean and comfortable, but the hotel on a whote was absolutely dreadful. I won't stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice room questionable staff"
Rear entry door handle was broken. It looked like it had been forced. I spend allot of nights in hotels. I felt like I was signing off on a house mortgage loan with all the forms and ID I had to show upon check in. Person at front desk was robotic almost to the point of being rude.Genuine Expedia guest review
"polar express and rest with relaxation"

Very good and clean... You should check it out and you will be happy.Genuine Expedia guest review

Nothing spectacular but clean, good value. I have nothing else to add. This is very annoying. I will probably not respond to any more survey request from Expedia.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We'll be back!"
My husband, adult daughter and I stayed two nights while visiting family for Thanksgiving. We had a very clean room and bathroom. There was also a second sink and mirror outside the bathroom. The beds were very comfortable. I usually get a sore back when I'm not in my own but it didn't happen there. Staff at the front desk and housekeepers were pleasant […] and helpful. Because we were busy with family events, we didn't use the weight room or pool but they looked well kept. The hotel is right off the turnpike exit so made it convenient to get to all the places we were going. It's only a few minutes to the Maine Mall exit for those interested in shopping. As close as it was to the turnpike, we didn't hear any traffic noise, though the first night I kept waking up every time the heat went on. I didn't notice it the second night. We will definitely be staying there on future trips to visit family. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to highway."
Located right off the highway and easy to find. It was an older hotel, and my room seemed small. There was no ice on my floor, so I had to go up or down the weird stairs to find some. There was an adunbance of postings and signage about safety. The front door had instructions on double locking for security, and a sign that tells you to go check the […] patio door to make sure all those locks are locked. This was very unsettling. And the binder of Info instructs guests to check with hotel staff on safety of neighborhood before venturing out on foot. I wouldn't stay here again based on not feeling safe, and because of the warnings, worrying about my car as well. There also appeared to be some odd rust and mold in the shower that someone attempted to cover with lots of caulk, unsuccessfully. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lots to do"
HoJo's is convenient, welcoming with a fireplace in the lobby, clean, with big rooms. A new breakfast/lunch place is opening in the adjoining space and the adjoining restaurant is very good. Lots of stores, Dunkies, Panera, etc. Easy drive to Portland or Freeport. Pool, gym, and whirlpools very nice. All very clean. It is an older facility.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice service overall, was surprised given the cost"
Honestly, it was better than I had anticipated. The airport shuttle was on time to get us to our early morning flight out of Portland airport. The hotel staff was nice and pleasant, gave us a great reccomendation for a seafood restaurant in downtown, we ate lots of lobster before leaving Maine! The hotel is a bit dated from the 60's or 70's, but really […] not in bad shape. There's a fitness room and a pool. For a family it's a decent hotel, and we would stay again. The price point is a plus. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
