"Hotel or rooming house??"
I tried to write a review, but the form keeps rejecting it, even though I pared it down to 1500 characters. Since I can't write what I have to say, I'll just say read the fine print. Extended Stay America is not your standard hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Mostly satified with the stay experience. Hotel staff friendly and helpful. The room was clean but had a lingering odor of some type of ethnic cooking, sort of like Indian food. And I love Indian food, just not smelling the after-cooking smells for our 48 hour stay in your hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
this is a no frills hotel. I felt that it was kind of pricey for being in the middle of no where. The hotel needs major upgrade but it was surprisingly very clean. Despite the cleanliness the sme was pretty awful. We were in a non smoking room which was clearly near someone who smoked. They also allow pets which I never had an issue with but I also […] think it adds to the smell. If possible I would skip this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel is located close to the maine mall which is good. Nobody came cleaning or room in the 4 days that we stay... The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The wi-fi connexion is goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"worst hotel ever"
Overall lack of customer service at front desk, smell of cheese and stale food throughout hallways, awful cigarette smell in rooms which caused headaches in both me and my husband, lack of flexibility or desire to please customer upon complaint, leaking refrigerator, overall worst hotel experience in the last 10 years.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great place to stay in Portland"
This is the best Extended Stay America unit I have seen. The staff is extremely helpful and, except for a few quirks, the rooms are comfortable. It's convenient to the airport, food and not far from downtown Portland.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Extremely friendly front desk to the point where they call your room to make sure everything is okay. I stayed here because they are pet friendly and there aren't "certain rooms" that are pet friendly, it's the entire hotel. The rooms are okay, it could have been cleaner as there were some food splatters on the cupboard. I also couldn't find a blow […] dryer anywhere but realized I had packed mine. It was inexpensive so the price matched the quality of the room. I will stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Unfortunately not very good"
Our stay turned out poorly. The first room we were in while called a non-smoking room clearly a previous guest had been smoking in the bathroom. The night staff was helpful and got us a new room right away. The second room while clean enough had a loud refrigerator and heating system. Slept poorly. Didn't stay for the second night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Super cute inn. They deliver cookies to your room for turn down service. Room service included a fine dining menu. A couple minor oversights on cleanliness, ie dirty qtip in the bathroom. Shower was not hot at all. Seems like it was set to a certain temp and it wasn't going either way.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Easy Peasy stay with all the utensils!"
Great little spot with all the utensils, fridge, and a super market/ liquor store across the street to boot!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Avoid at any cost"
I booked a non-smoking room with a queen size bed. I arrived just before midnight only to find out that they only had smoking rooms available. I complained to them and to Expedia. There were no non-smoking rooms available in a 10 or 20 mile radius. Having no other options I went into the room which reeked of cigarette smoke. The bathroom was in a miserable […] state without even a little sample shampoo in it. There was a "kitchen" which really meant that the room was tiny to leave space for the kitchen. I left the windows open and blasted the heat to maintain a reasonable temperature in the rom but the pillows, the sheets, the blankets, everything reeked like cigarette. A terrible experience. Having said that, the guy who was at the counter - his name was Zen - was extremely polite and did everything he could to help (while also doing laundry duty) but unfortunately there was nothing he could do.

"was ok but!"
I have stayed here many times in the past and most were ok except the issue of the fans in the bathrooms getting fixed and notified extended stay office in a review which they are working on. this stay had a repaired fan but I found black hairs on the sink and in the tub. It bothered me but I figured I could deal with it by removing with a tissue and […] flushing them. however on the last day after a morning shower I took a towel of the rack and started to dry my face and had a long black hair stuck to my face. that drew the last straw, gross me out. I told the front desk and asked if whoever was doing the laundry is wearing a hair net or not , they did not know. they front desk rep stated they would tell the boss about it. was not to happy about the issue. I like these hotels due to having the kitchen as I am usually there several nights which saves me money of not eating out all the time. there has to be more attention to cleaning the rooms and anyone doing the laundry should be wearing a hair net to avoid hairs getting on the towels.

"Affordable hotel, nice room"
The hotel was conveniently located, having the full efficiency studio was nice and not a normal amenity in a room at this price range.

When we arrived there was no one at the counter and we had to use the phone to call someone to check us in. There was nothing in the room, not even a bar of soap. We asked where the vending machines were and they said they had taken them out of the hotel. Overpriced. Don't stay here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just the place to stop after a long drive"
We were pleasantly surprised how easily and quickly we were able to take advantage of the amenities that this Extended Stay America provided. The kitchen was perfectly equipped to allow us to stay in, instead of going out for dinner after a long day on the road. The room was large with ample space to keep clutter out of the way. The layout was such […] that the use of the kitchen did not interfere with the sleeping and sitting areas. The space and the services worked well for us. We would definitely stop at another Extended Stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel and staff were excellent, and the price was very reasonable. I would not hesitate to book this hotel again, and would hope to have a much longer stay the next time.

"OK Hotel. Close to mall, grocery and dining."
Acceptable for the price. Cons were poor cooking utensils, bathroom fan and door were broken, refrigerator leaked, room was non-smoking and was permeated by the smell of cigarette smoke. Pros were the location and price and that pets are allowed. The pet fee is expensive, but the staff was kind enough to charge us only one night of the fee as opposed […] to the per night charge for each night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Feels like a home away from home beautiful hotel"
I would recommend anyone visiting the portland/Scarborough are stay here at this beautiful hotel. It has all the comforts of home in a room that will please even picky consumers. The value is also tremendous. For anyone needing longer term accommodation this hotel is a must. The staff are not only helpful but exceedingly friendly and will go the extra […] mile for guests. The location is very convenient being close to the portland airport (but far enough you don't hear planes), excellent shopping including the maine mall right down the street, numerous restaurants, grocery stores and major highways.

"Wouldn't want to stay here for an extended stay"
It may not be fair to judge this hotel for a two-night stay because it's intended for longer stays. This explains why they don't provide cleaning/towel service every day. The rooms are barren, dated and utilitarian. The towels are cheap and thin. It was OK for a few days, but I wouldn't come back, especially for an extended stay.Genuine Expedia guest review

My husband and I recently stayed here for the second time. I'm not really sure why I gave it another try. Last year we stayed here, and I was very disappointed with how dirty our room was. For the second year in a row, the bathroom was not cleaned. There was hair on the toilet and several pieces of hair in the shower. It was clear that the gentleman […] at the front desk was not happy to be working. If you like to have a clean room when you arrive at a hotel, I would find another place to stay.

Not clean, don't go!! I wanted to check out but couldn't find another hotel that night..ughhhGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"More than wonderful!"
Check in was a breeze since our stay was pre-paid. We were given a corner room on the top floor so only one neighbor and no one overhead which made it nice and quiet. Room was spotless and kitchen was adequately stocked. The only issue was that the refrigerator was noisy when starting up and running. I mentioned that to the desk at checkout and it was […] indicated that she would notate it for the maintenance staff. When they refer to 'Breakfast to go' they really mean it. It's coffee, a commercial granola bar and a piece of fruit. Don't expect breakfast at all. It was only a snack and likely should be advertised that way. All-in-all, our stay was comfortable and quiet. Looking forward to next year and hopefully we'll be able to book the same room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to airport"
The first room we went in reeked of smoke, so they moved us to another room which smelled better. The hotel was very basic, no shampoo or extras including a pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel staff was pleasant. The room was another situation. We should have slept in our car. The carpet was worn, there were holes in the blankets, there were no bathroom cups the halls were dingy. Maybe the hotel was running an austrety program, but we were very dissappointed. The free continnenal breakfast was coffee & a breakfast bar. Never, never […] again.
