Our Inn is very clean and DO NOT have bed bugs! We have a pest control company that inspects our Inn on a regular basis and have passed without any infestation issues.

Great spot, nice staff, lots of rooms and not far from downtown at all! On the same road as mostly everything else!

The staff was nice at the reception desk. But the rooms were not terribly clean (especially the bathroom!) The rest of the hotel seems to be fine, and the pool was very refreshing. We didn’t know until we got here that they are not serving breakfast on Saturday mornings, and the hotel restaurant was also closed in the evening. That should be on the website.

Thank you for your review - however, we would like to let you know that we believe that you may have left this review at the wrong property, as ours does not have a pool, we do not have a restaurant, and we serve continental breakfast daily from 6AM - 10AM. We apologize for your unpleasant visit to Portland, Maine regardless, and hope your next experience will be a great one!
