When I checked in I was informed that the room I had booked, a king smoking, was not available. They made accomodations and I was very satisified with the room and the people who helped me. I had a nice stay while visiitng my sister in Maine. Not good for vacationing as it has few amenities but perfect if you need an affordable room to sleep in. I would […] definitely stay there again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not So Super! In fact, Super Awful!"
Avoid like the plague. I was not expecting much. We needed a place to sleep after attending an event in the area and new we would not be there until late. Regardless of the rate, one would expect the room to be clean; that was not the case! There was mold all around the shower. The rug appeared to not see a vacuum in some time. The bed was awful and […] the pillows were only there for appearance; they were almost as thin as the sheets! We could not wait to depart. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convent to Portland,ME"
Room needs to be updated to cleaner standards.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was overall ok. There was a used wash cloth behind the dresser. Wire hangers from a previous guest in the closet, mold on the shower curtain and you could see the build up of soap scum in the shower. The beds were to firm for my liking but thats a personal preference.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"convenient to the airport"
The hotel room was dirty, no clean towels available until I went to the front desk to ask. There was a terrible smell in the hallways with left over food from fast food restaurants on the doorstep and inside the hallways.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Bed was really hard and pillows were really flat - great location for what we had planned and the price was reasonable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We came to portland Maine for a good friends wedding. We chose super 8 for the price alone, but when we arrived at one o'clock we entered the lobby to dirty linens piled on the floor and a woman and her young daughter at the front desk eating subway. We were rudely told none of the rooms were clean yet and we could come back at 3, an hour before we […] needed to leave for the wedding. Once checked in, we got to our room to notice stains on the walls and no clean towels. The next morning at 8am we were awoken to fire alarms and had to stand outside for an hour for the fire department to check the premises. Once back in our room, we had no hot water for the next several hours and had to take a cold shower. We were not expecting anything special but this was rediculous! Very disappointed and will never stay again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"you almost get what you pay for."
inexpensive rate. obvious cutbacks in housekeeping and maintenance. we requested no housekeeping because we were initially satisfied with the cleanliness of the room and also brought our own towels and linens. there was a communication break down betwen staff and housekeeping to honor the no housekeeping request because the housekeepers were russian […] on a temporary work program and did not understand. needless to say, our towels that we brought were picked up by houisekeeping never to be seen again, the staff did reimburse us with cash which did cover the value of the towels. the staff was friendly but seemed over worked and stresed with an overwhelming amount of complaints from their customers. did not even attempt to have the breakfast. there is no wifi available even though it is listed as such. a local advised us to travel to a nearby mcdonald's and access their wifi in their parking lot. the missing w in the welcome to super 8 was a case of foreshadowing at its best.

"Find another Hotel"
Please don't waste your hard earned money staying at this "hotel". What a dump. The staff is heavily overworked and can't handle all of the complaints. Our room was a disaster waiting for a significant remodel. We had issues with clean towels, plumbing, AC, Lighting, and a vital electrical outlet that didn't work. The women who work the front desk solo […] do what they can to help but their hands are tied and they don't work in the trades to solve these problems. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was terrible. The room had an overwhelming stench and was not clean at all. When we checked in, there weren't any sheets on the bed and the room hadn't been cleaned. I would not stay here again...would rather sleep in my car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dirty Hotel....less than helpful staff."
Very disappointed. "Non-Smoking" room smelled of smoke. Bathroom had peeling wallpaper that was moldy above the shower. Water stains on the ceiling and one light fixture did not work. Advertised free wi-fi.....no internet access during my entire stay and they had a different excuse each time I asked about when they expected it fixed.. When checking […] out I mentioned not having internet access and got a "Oh well...sorry.". Looked like the staircase to the second floor hadn't been vacuumed in months. When checking in I was told "when using those websites for your reservation you should always call the hotel to make sure they didn't screw it up because they usually do". The only good thing about this hotel was the location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I arrived early by 1/2 hour. Nobody at the desk and I waited ten minutes. I came that half hour early as I was going to have to then check in after 10 PM and I wanted to put my stuff in the room before work. I went to work, came to check in only to be told all nonsmoking rooms were gone. I wondered, since I was prepaid, why I did not have what I asked […] or since hotels.com had what THEY asked for, I.e., my money. I told the poor kid at the desk I would try it. I went to the room and was overwhelmed at the smell of air "freshened" with smoke. I knew I would wake up sick, so I told the clerk I would not stay and I would drive the hour home on the back roads that get me there, even after eye surgery that makes night driving difficult. It was dangerous, but, since I had the choice of sleeping without the smell and headache that would have come or staying and being ill for early morning work, I spent the time, ate the expense, arrived safely by the next day paid the price in fatigue of the hour commute it. I hav been disgusted and underwhelmed. Wish I had better news and were not out the $$, especially since I was prepaid. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Super 8 South Portland ME"
Lobby smelled of smoke..well stank of smoke. But my non smoking was clean and smelled only of cleaning products. Beds can use more comfortable pillows. My pillows were of the solid foam type and I could't squish them to my preference.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super 8 South Portland Maine"
Front staff of husband and wife was very friendly the first night, second night was husband's father and mother, not so friendly. Fitness room was locked entire stay and there was breakfast served. Heat didn't work the first night, took a time to get it fixed the second day. However for the price it was all livable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to the airport"
I'd recommend this hotel to others because it was only a bed and bathroom close to the airport. That was all I was looking for.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We arrived very late, almost midnight; There is no food there, not even a soda machine; We had to travel to a near by 7-11 ; I have a person that needs at least a pudding to take bedtime meds. so this was an additional pain in the neck. No breakfast to speak off. The room was clean, and the beds were very comfortable, we did sleep well. Old fashion […] heating units, either you are hot or too cool. The bathrooms had black mold all around the tile; and there was not a tissue box to be found; Very disappointing; We did inform the clerk at check out, she apologized for the mold, and said it was the first she had heard of it. We will try the Best Western next to it the following trip. Very conveniently located near route 295 and the Maine turnpike, 95; Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Dirt cheap - if you need to lay your head"
We needed a cheap place at the last minute and this fit the bill. We chose to spend a bit more money for a lot more comfort the following night. If you are on the cheap and know you aren't spending a lot of time in the room, this is your place. Towels are basic, sheets barely stay on the bed, air/fan needs updating but hey, we had a place to lie our […] heads. You get what you pay for....but it is clean!

Smelled like they used a whole bottle of disinfectant to cover up some other horrible smell. Side door to hotel had no lock...seemed a tad unsafe. The lights didn't work in the room & the shower was a little dirty. Overall...we needed a cheap place to stay one night...and we got what we paid for! They did have some great cable tv!!

Motel in much disrepair. Phone in room didn't work and it took 3 tries to get a replacement. No towels in bathroom when I arrived and was told they were all out being laundered and I'd have to wait.

"Would never stay at this hotel again"
What an awful experience. We arrived around 6 pm and the maid was only cleaning the room. Finally got in the room and there was no a/c, picked up the phone to call the front desk and it came apart in my hands. Went to turn on the lamp and there was no bulb in there. had to go down to the desk to tell them because the phone did not work. On the way […] down we pass the work out room with a big "out of order" sign on it, the vending machine was also out of order. They turned the air on at the front desk for us and sent someone up to fix the phone but he ended up replacing it because it was not fixable. We were also told there was free Wi-Fi and could not get a connection on either of our computers. Awful experience................................. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super 8 South Portland-close proximity-bad bad bad"
I read previous reviews about this hotel and since I am not a very picky person I did not heed the warnings. I made the booking anyway because everywhere else was more expensive, and this hotel was close in proximity to where I wanted to be. I tell you now, unless you want to feel disgusting, creeped out by the disturbing uncleanliness of this hotel, […] and feel like you are in a low-grade horror film...than by all means stay there. It was cheaper, but i would not recommend it unless you have a gas mask. The windows are sealed shut, the floors are so dirty that our socks were black within minutes, the tub had 1 foot of water in it, the air conditioner did not work, the toilet was orange/yellow with flies in it. Etc etc etc. Do not stay there! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't waste your money..."
I don't ask much from a hotel. Clean and dry on a rainy night is all that really matters. This one was dry, but not at all clean. Stains on the blankets, the origin of which I can only nauseatingly speculate on. Free WiFi? Uh, not exactly. Free yes, but none of the connections worked. I got the front desk shrug when I asked about it. I won't be staying […] there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super 8 S Portland ME"
We stayed at this hotel after 2 full days of sightseeing in NH and ME; we were exhausted when we checked in. We failed to notice the trash & abundance of cigarette butts just outside the front doors as we were tired and it was dark when we checked in. The first room we received, the bedding was absolutely filthy. As this is a budget hotel, it was no […] surprise that there wasnt a mattress pad on the bed, however, the bedding filth was unacceptable. There were dirty shoe prints on the pillowcases and the sheets were stained. The blanket had either chocolate or feces on it and there was dried blood on the comforter. I asked for and received another room which was slightly better. The king size pillows had standard pillowcases on them giving us a view of the verfy old and stained pillows. The pillowcases lacked show prints but did have dirt on them. The sheets were also stained. At least I hope they were stained, they appeared to have old urine stains on them. The blanket did not fit the king size bed as it was, at best, a queen size and the comforter was unusable as it had several unidentifiable stains on the underside. The towels were at least clean so we draped them over the pillows to get some sleep. The included "continental breakfast" was nothing more than weak coffee, one quart of 2% milk, one pitcher of rancid smelling orange juice and the breakfast foods were limited to slices of white and wheat bread and mini muffins and 2 choices of dried cereal. While the hotel staff were pleasant enough although disinterestefd, the disgraceful state of the hotel, which appeared to be quite nice in years past, was sad. The rugs were linty and dirty and the glass in the lobby was filmy and dirty. I have stayed in several other "budget" hotels but this one was by far the dirtiest one Ive ever seen and if my husband and I hadnt been so exhausted, we never would have remained at such a place. I was VERY diappointed in my stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"YIKES ! ! Super 8 South Portland ME"
Location and personel were very good to excellent but the motel was marginal at best. First room was wrong, key wouldnt work. after that we moved to another room - outlets on the walls were burned with pieces of plugs still hanging out! Refrig didnt work, had to have the AC/Heat turned on by reception (after messing with it for 30 mins), no fitted sheets […] and standard size pillow cases on king size pillows. Also something (ketchup or peanut butter I hope?) on the wall - and this was our second room! The pool as closed and had been all summer and the wireless internet did not work. Of course we paid very little little so cant complain too much. The bed and bathroom was clean and they were working on the other units. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"I will never stay here again"
I chose this hotel based on price alone, so I got what I paid for. The first room I had was "Non-smoking" but smelled like smoke, the smoke detector was disconnected and two lamps were broken. We requested another room. Our second room smelled like smoke as well but the smoke detector was intact and the lamps functional, so I did not have to worry […] about my family's safety. There was food left in the room's refrigerator, the carpets had not been vacuumed and there was an unsightly smudge on the bathroom wall. The hotel is close to Portland and the Jetport and is inexpensive, but it will be worth spending a few bucks not to stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"if mold and bed bugs do not bother you--"
We stayed there two nights- at beginning of trip and end. The motel is in urgent need of upgrade- the window blinds were literally attached with scotch tape. Both nights they had difficulty assessing my hotel.com reservation. Staff was cooperative and let us change rooms the last night when the queen sheets on the king bed clearly showed evidence of […] bed bugs. Also, I was convinced that if I booked directly the rates would have been less. This place needs renewal. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super8 South Portland, ME"

"Poorest Hotel I ever stayed in"
We drove into the parking lot literally over a pile of trash because the dumpster had over flowed. Trash everywheres. Then we walked up the steps, the back yard grass was up over our knees a broke down lawn mower abandoned right by the steps. Our room stunk so terribly bad it was almost unbearable and it was supposed to be smoke free. Not even a coffee […] pot in the room, thread bare towels and by the end of the evening my socks were completely black on the bottom from walking across the floor. So I would highly recommend everyone steer clear of this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"I took pictures of this mess"
This was a FOUL room. Personally it was one of the dirtiest rooms we have ever stayed in. We had a last min trip, a 4 hour ride, and took the first room we could find; namely this hotel. Be aware: I have pictures to back up my complaint Exhausted from the drive during the storm, we were ready to collapse in bed. However, once we unpacked this is when […] the horror began. 1. The toilet bowl was hanging by a thread and everytime it was sat on, it slipped. 2. Under the lid was worn and dirty. 3. No kleenex 4. Mold and sludge under the faucet in the tub. 5. The floor had leftover hair. 6. The toilet bowl base had left over hair 7. When the water in tub was turned off, it gave a banging sound. 8. A sloppy wooden box holding a refrigerator which had never been defrosted. 9. A blanket which had MANY DRIED FLUIDS on it. 10. A mattress protector too small which kept springing loose all night. 11. The a/c unit smelled musty. Now, I ask you...would you have stayed there I think Ill be sending this to the BBB and the health dept. also..this was disgusting.
