What a pleasant surprise this hotel turned out to be! I knew it is an older hotel, so I did not expect everything to be so up to date and pristine. Excellent stay!

Way over priced

Posted Sep 2, 2014
When you pay 300us for a stay and you ask your guests to pay for breakfast so ridiculous ! We stayed in a cheaper hotel second night and it was nicer and more guest accommodating !

Thank you for your feedback on the price that you paid here at the Sable Oaks Marriott. We are currently at the peak of our summer season and our rates are at their peak. We try to balance our rates with the demand at this time of year. We do have rates that include breakfast available. Our rates will decline now through the fall and winter season. We truly hope you would give us another opportunity to serve you here. Your patronage is appreciated. Regards, Ed Palmer

Good business hotel

Posted Aug 29, 2014
Pros: Location
This was a very normal Marriott. It was clean and well maintained - but had a very strong astringent smell all over the hotel - don't know what that was all about - but the staff was the typical happy and helpful "Marriott" gang! the restaurant staff was very good and friendly!

Very pleasant experience

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: It was convenient, clean and comfortable. It was just up the street from plenty of shopping and dining options, but secluded enough to be restful.
We stayed here for one night, as we had children arriving at the Portland Airport at 12. We were close enough to the ocean to have an hour stroll on the lovely Portland coastal walkways after a delightful breakfast in the hotel restaurant, and still get back to the airport in plenty of time for noon arrival.

Lovely hotel in office park—quiet, attractive

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: Excellent mattress and pillows
Cons: I had asked for two queen beds and we got one king. It was not the end of the world.
This hotel is in an office park. I liked that: lots of trees, very quiet. There is a golf club next door. Our room overlooked the lovely pool and had a sliding door into a little garden-ish thing. The bed was extremely comfortable. The staff was friendly. Solid business-class hotel.

Only room left with a king size bed..

Posted Aug 15, 2014
The room was a little small for a king size bed and pull out sofa. Also there was no regular soap, only scented shower gel.

why bother having windows.. for how much???

Posted Aug 7, 2014
Pros: The parking lot was close to the door.
Cons: Rates!
Location: Portland Maine is an absolute gem of a coast city. Old Port is fantastic. The night life and local music scene must be experienced.
We payed over 300.00 for a dated room with a view of a fence a foot from our window. We were actually on the third floor and literally had a fence within arms reach of the window. It was complete with trash piled up along the fence. I am horrified that Marriot would actually charge over 300.00 for such a room. I exclusively start at Marriot, with a rewards account. I will now reconsider my options. Yes, I did request a room change, and/or rate change, but was refused.

Mike, Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback to us on your recent stay here at Sable Oaks. We are sorry that the location of your room overlooked our roof. The fence you referred to is placed to block the view of heating and air conditioning systems. We use these rooms only when the demand is high. This is also the reason our rates are high. We hope you found that our staff service was acceptable. We also hope you will give us an opportunity to serve you again in the future.

Rooms tiny, no amenities, pool very small, no refrigerator in room, no microwave in room, hotel in office park for business people.all the above should have been advertised.staff was pleasant, room was clean. It was just not the right location or size room.good for a single traveler.

Be careful with non-refundable rooms

Posted Jul 12, 2014
Pros: Expedia Search
I and my girlfriend reserved a room for the 4th of July night at Marriott Portland at Sable Oaks. Weather was seeming great, and all the events were set for the 4th of July celebrations, we were very excited to go. We thought there would be no reason for not to go, and there was non-refundable room option, then we bought it to stay a nice hotel. Then, hurricane Arthur happened, and all the events were cancelled; but most importantly it wasn't safe to go Massachusetts to Maine coast during a hurricane. We called the hotel and tried to change our reservation the date because this was a situation developed out of our control, and effected whole coastal area and governmental organizations, not just us. However; they told us that neither they can't change the date nor they could do anything else. Be careful when you are making a reservation with this hotel.

I am sorry to hear of your challenges with trying to cancel your reservation over the July 4th time period. Unfortunately when you book with Expedia you must cancel or change your reservations with them directly. We are unable to change the reservation without Expedia's approval. The reservation is subject to their booking policies.
