When I travel I always stay at this Holiday Inn location. The location is convenient to Target and the mall for any last minute vacation shopping. The shuttle to the airport is punctual and the drivers are great. Their park & fly rates is one of the best in the area and it is a quality hotel with nice people...

We have stayed here many times and again 2 weeks ago. We get great service, a nice breakfast and we love the suite we always get. They allow us to leave our car there and shuttle us to and from the airport as part of their Park and Stay package. We had a cancelled flight and had to take a...

The room was booked thru a 3rd party one month in advance of our stay - my confirmation came back stating that I would be staying in a handicap room of which, we did not need, but this is typical of this kind of booking when you don't book directly with the hotel's website. Upon our arrival, I did state...

I am a Holiday Inn brand loyalist. This is my brand of choice when I travel, though I do stay at other brands when I have to. I was both pleased and discouraged with my stay in South Portland, Maine. This particular hotel used to be a Marriott hotel because they still have the posters hanging in the hallway down...

I stay here almost every time I visit my hometown in Maine. The motel has a huge lobby and a good free breakfast. Remember that when they say your internet reservation is non refundable they mean it. I made a two day reservation a month ago and asked if I could transfer my second day at the Holiday Inn at...

This is my second stay at this hotel and it's always great. The rooms are big, we had 2 doubles and a pull out couch. Fridge, coffee maker and microwave and convenient. There is a great breakfast too. This hotel is close to shopping, restaurants, airport and I95 and 295, but since it's up on a hill in a office...

My wife and I stayed at this property the night before returning home from a business trip in the area. Our room was spacious and laid out much like a mini-suite found in many extended stay properties. We were very comfortable and the décor was nicely designed. Our flight out was very early AM so we did not get a...

My wife and I searched for an economical night's stay in the area and found this facility to exceed our expectations. We got a king room with couch, chair, desk, & mini kitchenette. There was no view to speak of, but that didn't bother us. We were close to the jetport & highway, so there was a bit of noise,...

As a holiday inn express it does its job. The first thing that struck me was just how musty and smokey the corridor was on the top (suites) floor was. Lord knows when smoking stopped, but perhaps the carpet is the same. It was the same in the room. It is kind of amusing to read the small print of...
