"Okay hotel, VERY THIN walls!"
The hotel was okay, the bed was actually quite comfortable. It was pretty outdated and had some "weird smells" in a few areas (old, musky, etc) but those things weren't major. The biggest issue was how terribly thin the walls are! I could hear EVERYTHING in the room next to us and especially in the hallway. Therefore, I had trouble falling asleep, and could literally hear what had to be a man taking a THUNDEROUS pee in the room next to us around 1 am. I'm not kidding, it was that bad. But the room was clean and the staff was nice. I would just not recommend for anyone that's a light sleeper.

"Affordable if you need something short notice"
Stayed here for about 3days and i was impressed with the staff as they were very welcoming and ready to help. But the hallways smelled funky and the rooms were manageable. I didn't think my sheets were brand new cause they looked dirty but it was changed. Also its not the cleanest place so if you are a germophobe, check some where else. There was free shuttles though which was great and this hotel is located around fast food joints which makes eating a little cheaper. Over all ill say it was fine.

"Portland"
The room key didn't work and we couldn't find the desk clerk for over ten minutes. When she finally came to the desk, she said she'd been in a room helping someone else. She was very defiant that she had been in the hotel so we had no reason to be upset. She gave us another key card and that still didn't work so she moved us to another room. We got in the room and the few outlets that were there were in odd places and didn't work when the light on the same electrical box was turned off. Needless to say, our phones didn't charge that night. The bathroom caulking was sloppy.

We arrived several hours before check in and needed to print an itinerary. They not only allowed us to use the computer and printer but they found a room that had already been cleaned so they let us in early. After arriving from the West Coast on a red eye flight it was exactly what we needed to start our trip off right. Thanks

"Has the feel of a pricier hotel - a good bargain."
Upgraded rooms, comfortable, clean, modern. Overall the hotel is pleasant and gives the feel of a hotel that costs one and half to twice as much as the actual cost. My only complaint is that I had asked the front desk to tell the cleaning staff to do my room early, but that message got lost in the shuffle. However, the clean staff on the floor responded quickly and politely to my request to clean my room next. Very satisfied, would stay here again.

"I wouldn't allow my dog to sleep here!"
(This stay was for business, in which my organization paid for this stay) I had called the hotel the day before to discuss my allergy issues regarding dogs; as I had noticed after the booking that they were a pet friendly hotel. I was assured by the woman who answered the phone that she would make sure that the room was EXTRA clean upon arrival. Well when I arrived the following night at 9:30pm I found my room on the 3rd floor to have an indescribable odor. I immediately opened the sliding glass door to air it out and called the front desk to ask for a blanket. The blanket was delivered promptly by a gentleman that looked like the creepy guy from Scooby Do. Needless to say the blanket was useless, it had cigarette burn holes and dog hair all over it. I tossed in the bottom of the closet without even opening it. YUCK! Upon further inspection of the room, I found hair in the tub, the floor around the bed not vacuumed, and about an inch of dust covering everything. I slept on top of the sheets both night and was woken up by people in the halls at ungodly hours; NOTE this hotel is across the street from a strip club. Two days later I am still suffering from allergens of what ever was in that room and my asthma has flared up. Please, do your self a favor pay the additional twenty dollars and stay else where.

Over all it was good. When we ck'd in our room was 110, 1st floor. It smelled very musty. :( and I opened the sliding glass door to air it out, there was no screen. I requested a different room, prefferably on another floor. The clerk was very accomadating, and sweet, and apologized. :) Once we were in our room 234. It was fine. The hotel itself was a little dated, but the beds were sooooo comfy! I would stay there again. My son goes to school at UNE, so we will be visiting frequently. thanks :)

"We enjoyed our stay.."
The beds were extremely comfortable; staff was very cooperative. The outside balcony was a nice bonus. The room needed a dusting and a vacuuming but wasn't "dirty". A tip for anyone traveling who is disabled - book thru the hotel. We wanted a walk in shower but didn't find out until we got there that none were available. If we had booked thru the hotel and got that info, I might have stayed somewhere else. Certainly didn't ruin the trip though.

We checked-in to a 'non-smoking' room that smells like you're cooking in the kitchen and were exchanged to another room that has a pungent smell of cigarette smoke. The bathroom is a bit flimsy. The plastic siding around the tub is bulging and the plastic tub is not strong enough to hold the weight of a human being (i'm only 100 pounds and i can bounce on the tub). Overall cleanliness and service is ok. The location is right next to the exit of I-95 and has a Shaws' supermarket, Panera Bread and Dunkin Donuts close by. Overall, the hotel is rated a '3' because of its location but room quality deserves a '2'.

"Complaints."
When we arrived we asked for a refrigerator but were told that they would try to find one. We had medication that needed to be refrigerated. Eventually one arrived. We left for the afternoon and when we arrived back a second refrigerator was in the room. We called down to have it removed but it never was. We were at the hotel for three days. The worst problem was the strong mildew smell coming from the bathroom. We spoke to the housekeeper on our floor and she said she would have it washed down with chlorox if we didn't mind the smell. There was no chlorine smell so obviously nothing was done to alleviate the problem. We had made our reservation with a Howard Johnson hotel. We should have been notified that the property had been sold to Ramada as this caused us a problem in trying to find the hotel.

"OK value for the price"
It is what one would expect from a Ramada Inn. Our only criticism is that the hotel changed from a Howard Johnson, which is what we booked, to Ramada Inn about a week before we arrived and we were not notified. It caused some confusion and concern as we searched for the HJ and could not find it.

"close to Maine Turnpike"
we had a king size bed where one side was almost against the wall leaving about 10 inches of walking space. A/C cooled just fine but roared when it cycled on - sounded like a motorboat. We stayed here before when it was a Howard Johnson so the change of name has not helped the deficiencies of the room. It's an old and worn property would not stay here again.

"What a rip-off....."
We paid $188 for one night at this place. The only good thing about it was the nice woman behind the counter. The decor was completely outdated, we were laughing hysterically as we were walking down the hallway. The room wasn't anything special and the toilet was crooked. The decor, again, was seriously outdated, which to most people wouldn't matter but for what we spent, you would think they could invest back into the hotel. It was a complete rip off. I have spent less and stayed at MUCH nicer hotels. We made the best of it because we really just needed a bed for the night but the bed was NOT comfortable and the pillow cases had stains on them. We slept in our clothes and on TOP of the sheets and blankets. Would NOT recommend.

"Very nice amenities"
This hotel is a renovated Howard Johnson. My husband enjoyed the mini-gym although a few of the machines were not working. There's an indoor pool which we didn't have a chance to enjoy. The room was smallish but served its purpose nicely. There was a microwave and refrigerator in the room along with bottled water and snacks for free. The area was noisy at night since the hotel is right off the highway but not enough to be bothersome. We really did enjoy our stay. Staff was vey friendly and helpful.

"Worse for the wear"
I specifically did not want to stay at the Howard Johnson's and thought that when I booked at Ramada Plaza that it was a newer, nicer hotel. If it was mentioned that this hotel was previously the HJ, I must have overlooked it. The hotel is a little worse for the wear, just not what I was expecting from a Ramada, exactly what I knew it would be as the HJ. I was disappointed as we only had 3 days in Portland and I wanted to stay at a nicer place with my family and sister visiting from the midwest.

The faculity was out dated the lights over the bed were only on switch and one person could not shut off the light but leave the others on. There were very few outlets the outlet you would use for blowdryer would not keep the plug in it kept falling out. There was mo fan in the bathroom so the room remained hot and humid.

Although we were pleased with the room, we were awakened each night at approx. 3am and were exhausted for our long drive home. The first night, I requested an 8:30am wake up call, only to receive the call at 3:10am! The second night, we were awakened at 3:04am by 2 men in the parking lot talking, swearing, laughing and carrying on outside of our sliding glass door. After 20 mts., I called the front desk who sent someone out to talk to them. It didn't end until 4am. Also, the hotel provided us with a 10% off breakfast coupon to be used at the adjacent restaurant; however, we found out it didn't apply to the days we were there.
