It is just an ok hotel in a residential neighborhood. I've been in much better and will not stay there again.

"Good value for the money! Would stay here again."
Three adults, two kids and one infant stayed for one night, in two rooms. For the money, it was great! Rooms are roomy, clean and, although they could use some remodeling, very comfortable. One of our rooms had terrible TV reception and, after calling the front desk, it only took five minutes for maintenance to come in and get it fixed. The kids loved swimming in the pool--both evening and after breakfast. Complimentary breakfast was good, but crowded--I will not complain as we all filled up before our busy day ahead.

"Unstable Internet for Apple devices."
Internet connection for I-pad was very bad for both this stay and another stay three weeks ago in a different hotel room location. Apparently Apple devices cannot function well here. The clerk tried to help including coming to the room to try to establish a stable connection. Clerk said she had similar problem with her I phone and had to use her data plan.

"Eh"
While the hotel staff at the front desk were very informative, friendly and helpful, that's about all this hotel has going for itself. The location was a bit shady with a gas station closeby and people who would hang around out front. They need to add more lights in the parking lot, too, which is off to the side a bit. The hotel itself is old and needs updating, which is usually fine to me for a one night stay, but the hotel gave me the creeps. The hallways are very narrow. Our room was on the 1st floor, with low ceilings and a bed that was too stiff to sleep in. On top of that, they placed us next to construction, so we were woken up around 6am by the sound of hammering and hollering. We will not be staying here again. Two pros: They have an indoor pool and check out is at 12.

"Ok but with some limitations"
Only some rooms have an armchair - ours did not this time (our 10th stay here, all other times we had a comfy chair, only one, but that was good). I asked the maid and she immediately got us a chair. Breakfast is good enough, but the small, hot room is quite chaotic with a long line to wait in. Needs to be larger, and rearranged so various items are in separate corners so people wanting just coffee or juice don't wait in the long line behind people wanting eggs and sausage.

"A cheaper alternative to Portland's higher prices"
Not in a central location but clean standard room, good service and a good price. A few miles south of the city and easy into portland, also south and quick highway access. Rooms comfortable enough, decent linens (rough towels), hallways (walls, wallpaper) could use some attention - i think its under renovation? Continental buffet included and pool is a bonus.

"Decent place at a great price!"
The hotel was clean and the staff was great! We stayed 2 different nights, with one room being much better, had an updated a/c unit, seemed brighter and larger. Major complaint is the slamming doors. they close on their own and SLAM so loudly. The free breakfast was fine, many items, including fresh whole fruit and make your own waffles. The pool is small but the teens loved it.

"Wouldn't recommend"
We had two rooms. In our room the AC did not work and the beds were hard. In our second room they apparently didn't clean the bathroom as someone else's dirty socks were left on the floor. At check in our room was held with our credit card but I told them I wanted to pay with cash. I was told I could do that in the morning at check out. When checking out in the morning they had already charged my credit catd and said it would be difficult to reverse the charges, that didn't make me happy. The night staff was rude to our children when they asked a question. Won't stay thete again nor would I recommend.

"Fine for the night"
It's an older property and our room showed it, but it wasn't too bad. The lobby was nice, as were were the front desk staff at both check in and check out and the place seemed to be busy with travelers. It was super easy to get to from the highway, so if you are just passing through for the night like we were, it was fine. Nothing special, but an ok place to get a night's sleep.

"Good Price, Good Room For The Price"
The front desk let me and my 3 friends check in 2 hours early which was awesome, we got complimentary waters and cookies doesn't sound like much but I was happy with that haha. The hotel seemed well kept, wasn't dirty. I loved the free breakfast, most hotels have it but I was glad we had it regardless. My one big issue with the hotel was not having a fridge in my room, I did not have a fridge or vault. I hope that issue is fixed as I had to rely on a cooler for the 3 days I was there. The location is good the highway is very close and I did a ton of traveling in Maine so that worked out as well!

"Almost perfect-bad internet"
Stayed 2 nights. Great location for either downtown Portland, Old Orchard Beach, or shopping at the mall. Looks like they are almost done renovating this older motel. Pool was a great plus! Two concerns are the restaurant attached is closed and the Wi-Fi was horrible. I had to re-enter the password every 10 minutes, possibly because there wasn't a hub on the fourth floor? Overall great place.

"HOJO at its best."
The hotel is in a great location for the areas we were going to (Hadlock Field, Waterfront, etc.). The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean, modest rooms. TV was a little wonky; it would turn off and then on again several times before it would stay off. But that's one tv. I would stay again without a second thought. If you're looking for a good, basic hotel, this is the one. Convenient to highways, mall, ballpark.

"Howard Johnson Hotel, South Portland, Maine"
Our stay was very disappointing. We have stayed there many times over the past 20 years, but will probably not go back there. The condition of the hotel is quite poor. The first room that we were in had a toilet problem. The water pressure kept coming on. We finally decided to change rooms at 8:00 p.m.The second room had no toilet paper holder rod and the toilet seat was not very well attached, and couldn't be adjusted.The first room was better furnished, and the second room had an odor, possibly due to renovations that are supposedly in progress. The TV reception in both rooms was barely watchable and the WiFi was sporadic, to say the least, using our data on our devices. The restaurant is gone, and there is now a shabby breakfast room. I expected a reduction in our room rate, to say the least, but nothing of the kind was offered. I have never complained at a hotel before in my life and am 58 years old. Onward and upward for us, a very sad ending to a great place.

We've stayed in your hotel from time to time (maybe twice annually) for the last 10 years; and once before in 1990 for a week. We like the location and rates. People are friendly, but much of that depends on how friendly we ourselves are. The building needs a lot of work to be completed quickly. We live in High Point, NC.
