Howard Johnson Hotel South Portland
Ranked #5 of 13 Hotels in South Portland
Reviewed 28 August 2017

Iffy, older neighborhood in South Portland, but no real issues. Easy drive into Portland downtown and out to Interstate. Surprisingly bountiful breakfast, free with stay. If you have a large party, a really important perk. Printer in the lobby to get boarding passes. Pool and gym for those who want to work off that breakfast. Room was modern, with good amenities. Comfortable bed with nice linens. Walls thin, so you could hear next door and water gushing through pipes in the bathroom walls. If you are a hotel snob, not for you. If you want something better than barebones Motel 6, at a modest price compared to Portland hotels, it's a good buy.

Room Tip: Higher floors and corner rooms would be quieter

Dear robinsonth,

Thank you! I couldn't agree more - the Howard Johnson hotel offers free hot breakfast, free Wi-Fi, free airport shuttle, an indoor pool and fitness room and all for a fraction of downtown hotel prices!

We are working hard, together with the city of South Portland and our neighbor Chicago Dogs, to make our area bountiful and welcoming.

We sure hope to see you again very soon!
Regards,
Chiara

We spent a night at HoJo on our way to Mount Desert Island. It was a convenient location with a clean, comfortable room including a fridge/microwave. The wifi signal was weak and the breakfast room was quite a walk to access & very crowded with typical breakfast selection. Parking was easy and accessible. Bathroom had sink & mirror outside from the tub/toilet with one in the toilet section, as well, which was nice.

Dear Upstatefamily,

Thank you for taking the time to review us!

Our location is ideal for visiting the Old Port or hop on 295 for the outlets in Freeport which are only 20 minutes!

Our hotel is quite large and yes, we have long hallways. Next time, please request a room near the breakfast area and we will be happy to do that!

Regards,
Chiara
