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'. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"On the Small Side"
The room was a bit smaller than average, but very clean and well maintained. The shower was the best I have experienced. The attached breakfast/lunch cafe is very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
worn and drearyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, poor location"
Good place to stay fora good price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Standard chain hotel"
Located outside of town. No microwave or fridge. Breakfast is served in an adjoining restaurant and is not complimentary. The room was very nice and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
No screen on slider, room had stale smell, beds not comfortable. Employees were very every nice though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the rural area"
The hotel was older however sufficient for the options within the rural area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older hotel with Shady clientele"
Had to move rooms in the middle of the night due to a car alarm going off every 10 mins outside our window.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Driving Distance to Popular Location"
It was a perfect stay. Affordable. Clean. Great location. Nearby restaurants, gas station, convenient stores, and popular tourist location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.

"Was as good as we needed"
The hotel was clean and comfortable..Not the best quality sheets or bedding but it was fine for a one night stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I had stayed 2 nights in 2 different rooms, The queen business suite was nice with fridge microwave and bottles of water etc. The standard double rooms which were booked ahead of time for much more money were roomy but lacked the ammenities of the first room, something to consider for an extended stay! :) Service was great and pool was a nice feature. […] Most everything is a bit dated but very clean! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value close to Portland"
It was a great stay, we had a kind size comfortable bed with a Jacuzzi tub. The room was clean and quiet except for some late night motorcycle noise from parking lot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
About right for the priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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.

The hotel is conveniently located by 95 exit , a Shopping center, restaurant and carry outs. Short distance to downtown by car. Room was clean, but bath towels were dingy, tissues were out and toilet paper was sparse . Otherwise it was fine,it met our needs and we would stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place for a night"
The room was clean and comfortable, the front desk women were extremely pleasant. I accidentally left my iPad in the room and they called me 3 minutes after my stay to let me know :) The location is a mile from Shaws, Panera, etc. BUT across the street from a strip club, literally as close to 95 as you can get. Overall, great for a night but this is […] not the place to stay if you want a Portland experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Friendly staff... The Seasons grill actually had an extensive menu and prepared well.. I ate three dinners there...didn't leave the property.. Great specials...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonable price & convenient"
I stayed just one night got in late left early AM. My room was very clean. Nice bathroom, looked newly renovated. granite top w/very nice bath/shower. I didn't take advantage of any amenities. I just needed a place to rest my head & body. Very acceptableGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good overnight spot"
This hotel was a little out of the way from downtown but was a good crash spot for the nightGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right off the Maine Turnpike"
Hotel was fine. Nothing stood out either way!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great room at a great rate"
We stayed at the Howard Johnson in Portland Maine with friends and were very pleased with the cleanliness of the room. We appreciated the updated features and the friendly staff. Housekeeping was very good. Would stay here again. Loved the restaurant for breakfast; wonderful staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nothing spectacular, but a clean comfortable stay. Quiet where we were, so that was good. The front desk clerk was very friendly and welcomed tired travelers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ice machine on first floor malfunctioning, room safe was not operable when we arrived - desk responded with repair. Convenient for our travel into Portland. Comfortable bed; uncomfortable room chair. Not enough outlets available and none by desk where desk was situated in room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, right off the highway. Not a 5 star but always clean, convenient, and priced reasonable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Have stayed here many time over the years and always satisfied :-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Pet Friendly option"
we had a great nite sleep even though we were on ground floor (our request) on main street. Didn't bother us at all. Didn't realize until check-in about the $50 refundable pet fee (refundable if no damage and no guest calls if your dog is barking in room if you step out). Also surprised at the lack of trash bins available outside to dispose of your […] dogs, well you know...i didn't want to leave it in the room and had to walk to outside of front of hotel to dispose of it properly. Rest. was fun. Wasn't able to get wifi connection - cldve called front desk but not that important. Last, woke in middle of night to find 100 small little ants on bathroom floor which was gross, but hubby said common??? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We took a vacation to portland and stayed here and it was great! The spa and pool were on point and the location was very close to portlands old port. Getting out of the intersection in front of the hotel sucked but besides that great stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stay at this hotel every time I go to see my family in maine and have never had any problem's hope it doesn't change as there were signs that in July it is changing to Ramada innGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Didn't think the hotel was what great. Shuttle took almost a half hour to get to the airport that was 2 miles away at 10 p.m.Genuine Expedia guest review
very convenient to the highwayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"What I needed"
This was a decent place for an overnight stay, and I got what I expected from this hotel. If I was staying for a longer time, I would want to be closer to the city, but the location right off the highway was fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place, although third party description"
They were very accommodating by changing the date of my stay. I booked the hotel through a third party and the description did not match the location on the property. That was my only issue really. We would have initially wanted to stay in downtown Portland. However, it was a nice little place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Roaming Pit Stops"
My Wife and I stayed here during our trip to New England , we do a few states every couple of years with the goal of having visited every US state . We found this hotel on Expedia during our visit to Salem in Mass , it was very nice , well staffed , excellent facilities ( in door pool) and great value for money. I highly recommend this one.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, spacious rooms"
Stayed a couple of nights, were very pleased. The room was clean and spacious, had a flat screen TV. We went to the pool one night and it was nice, there are two jacuzzis. Guests receive a coupon for 10% discount at the breakfast place adjacent to the hotel. It was very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely 8 day visit!"
We really enjoyed our stay here. The balcony, which provided fresh air as desired, was unexpected and quite appreciated. The mattress was great; the towels thick and plush. The water pressure was sufficient; the tv quite nice. The staff, front and support, were friendly and helpful. We loved the heated, indoor pool. It was beautiful and great every […] morning exercise. The Egg & I connection was quite nice. We really enjoyed eating there. Overall, we had a great time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very pleasant staff, nice rooms"
Hotel more than met our expectations. Staff was very friendly, and rooms were very nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good access to freeway Rooms very comfortable"
Loved the pool spa area. Kids were in the pool after 9:30 which was a bit of a problem. RM309 thermostat did not work. Kept room too warm. Sinks in rm 310 did not drain. Other than that it was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Has slipped since the last time I stayed there"
Toilet did not always functioning properly and always made a horrible noise after flushing. Housekeeping not 100% on the job--you could write in the dust on the stand-up lamp glass table and on the tops of the radiators. I've stayed here before and at various of the other motels in the general area and in the past this one was the best and cleanest; […] not so sure anymore!!!! Otherwise, convenient location near I-95 and a great restaurant nextdoor for breakfast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel close to Downtown Portland"
Very convenient and clean. Easy to get to from the highway.Genuine Expedia guest review
we had a very nice weekend at the Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel Portland Maine our room was just great. But be careful with hotels.com their add for the room said our room had a jetted tub in the room bit when we checked in it did not and the front desk said hotels.com had booked just a standard room for us. Luckley they where able to get us one with the […] tub, and they where very nice about it even though it was not their fault. There was a good size pool and two hot tubs. Also a cool restraint and bar with entertainment in the hotel also a little breakfast place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not as great as other reviews would lead you to believe. My room stank of smoke (non-smoking room), the bed mattress was old, and the decor of the hotel hasn't been updated in 20+ years. On the upside, it was at least clean (aside from the room smell). This is at best a 2-star hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
