We stayed overnight to avoid bad-weather traveling. Booked with a AAA rate, this is a good choice and we will stay here again if we're in the area! Our king suite was larger than our friends' comparable room at the Marriott Sable Oaks nearby and we enjoyed having a fridge &

Dear CB48, Thank you for the great feedback on the front desk staff and I will be sure to relay it to the entire team. Our hotel is right around the corner form the Maine Mall, the Portland International Jetport, as well as many restaurants. Downtown Portland is just about a 10-15 minute drive from our property. Our rates do drop during the winter and it is definitely still a great time to visit! We hope to see you again.

Don’t know where the people stayed that wrote the horrible reviews. First, it is in a great location with tons of restaurants and shopping near by. The grounds are very nice and sits on a hill away from traffic with nice scenery. The building is like new and well maintained.

We stayed a Thursday to Friday. Great rates! There were 5 of us, my husband and I, our 9 and 6 yr olds, and a 4 month old baby! We stayed in a king room, with a pullout sofa (you have to ask for the linens and pillows for that-they don't leave them in the room!) Extremely

I stay at Holiday Inn Express hotels all across the U.S. Most are excellent facilities that I would recommend. However, the South Portland, Maine facility does not make the cut. I stayed their over the Thanksgiving weekend. The housekeeping team did not make up my room once

Hello H1585CKdavem, We recognize your time is valuable and greatly appreciate your feedback. I wanted to send my deepest apologies for the multiple inconveniences you experienced. This is obviously not the typical IHG experience we take pride for. I would love another chance to earn your loyalty, so I sent you a private message. Also, I have made the hotel management aware of your concerns and I am confident that they will take every action possible to ensure these issues are internally addressed and resolved. I hope you will give us a chance by staying with us again to show you that your unsatisfactory stay was an exception. Sincerely, Krysllin G Case Manager IHGService
