I stayed at the Fireside Inn for a class reunion. The reunion it self was done very well with great food and a great host from the hotel. Her name was Laura and she was very friendly, professional and made sure everything was perfect including fixing a couple guest room issues. Over all the rooms were fine but dated.On the...

Very clean facility. My husband and I arrived at the hotel early and the front desk agent was able to get us checked into our room several hours before check in. The room was very clean and comfortable. The TV was an older tube style so no Netflix or Amazon through an HDMI.

We are so glad you had a nice stay with us. We are slowly but surely working on replacing the old tube tv's! Did you like the Keurig coffee maker in the room? Hope to see you again soon!

We spent 3 nights here recently, having booked about 1 week prior to travel. Carpetting around the pool is well-worn & in need of replacement. There was also a wooden beam, part of a pergola, which was rotted. The sheer curtains on the window were water-stained as if there had been a leak, but no one bothered to change them...

This hotel is old, the hallways reminded me of either a prison or institution. Our key card wouldn't work at the outside door they told us to go to. Then the front desk blamed us for messing it up. There were stairs to the second floor and we had lots of luggage. Finally found the one elevator and the had...

While this hotel might be dated and need of facelift, it is good place to stay and relax. The outside pool is nicely heated and great to view the stars at night. The restaurant and bar is convieniant and provides basic food and drink. The claim to have award winning chilli but I was not that impressed. Breakfast was good...

While attending a conference in Portland we decided to save a little bit of money and stay here. We arrived late and got a not so enthusiastic response from the staff and then went to the "room" The room was "tired" and needed to be renovated. The wallpaper was peeling and we never did get a coffee maker despite being...

First I know many people are making complaints however lets make some points here. This isnt a 5 star resort hotel so compare apples to apples not apples to oranges. Free continental breakfast buffet. It was great for what it was. Fresh fruit, yogurt, boiled eggs, pancakes from the standard pancake machine. I have allergies to pineapple and they cut...

The hotel is located a few miles from the Old Port in an area with lots of cheap hotels, chain restaurants, and strip malls. The hotel is spread out with several entrances, more like a motel. The doors leading outside don't close properly. I would guess they can't actually lock them at night like the signs say they do. The...
