We loved the location, cleanliness, pool, and friendliness of the staff. Free shuttle and business center. We will definitely stay here again. Very close to airport, downtown, mall, and hospitals. Great property.

I cannot say enough about the staff of this hotel. It is very close to Maine Med where I have a family member in serious condition. The staff goes out of their way to answer questions and accommodate needs. There is a shuttle that drives guests to the various hospitals, MD appointments and back and forth to the airport, etc....

We had a great meal of fish and chips at the hotel restaurant and there is a great Italian sandwich shop across the road....

They needed to change my mattress, at the hotels renovation time table, not upon my request. What I was told was it needed...

Looks older and like it might be out of date on the outside, but the inside is newer looking. Excellent stay, no complaints. Grounds, building, staff, room, and breakfast were all top-notch. I highly recommend.
