Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Cleanliness
I stopped knowing it would be a late arrival and quick morning exit. Site is convenient to the highway and local dining options. The walls are relatively thin, but thankfully neighbors were quiet during sleeping hours. Biggest complaint was that bathroom could have been cleaned better prior to my arrival.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Poor lighting in lobby. Tired worn carpeting. The windows in the room were too close to the outside entdsnce and smoking area and were partially frosted over. Saw only one staff person at front desk at any time of my stay and NO other staff. There was little feel of "cared for" in or around the facility. This given the rate of $238.00 for the stay.

BEWARE: No "real" breakfast. Do not expect a standard Continental breakfast. All you get is to pick some sugary granola bars and doughnuts and some lunch fruit cups (kept room temperature) from the table in the lobby. No juice, no toasts, no milk, fruits, yogurt, or anything! This was very disappointed as I had partially selected the hotel because breakfast was included. The hotel is in a location where there isn't much, but near the highway with 20 min. access to Old Orchard beach.

Staff seemed friendly enough. Hotel is older and they seem to be trying to update the look a bit with some paint and trim etc. the free breakfast was a bit to be desired. They did offer breakfast sandwiches to heat up (no ketchup - we are a ketchup family) and there was little options for kids but granola bars and nothing for them to drink so that was disappointing. Otherwise it was comfortable enough.

Pros: the staff were pleasant and helpful. There is a guest laundry facility, and there are no bugs. Cons: My single biggest complaint was that they advertise breakfast, but "breakfast" consisted of self-serve coffee, plus granola bars and those factory-sealed fruit cocktail cups-- literally nothing else. Housekeeping service during the visit is not offered--rooms are only cleaned between guests-- and in a three-day stay that became a problem. I was bemused by the in-room envelope asking us to tip the nonexistent housekeeper. Beyond that, this place is frankly kind of a dump. Everything is banged up and paint is peeling; even the sign for the hotel is in poor condition. There's a roped-off area in the front, but there's no work happening-- I guess it's just unsafe to go near that part of the building? Part of the parking lot is unpaved, the fence is broken down in several places and there's a pile of cut brush abandoned in a corner of the property. There are three grills in the parking lot where people congregate in the evenings, getting high and hanging out. We saw some people coming out of the bushes and my young son wondered what they might have been doing in the bushes. The interior of the hotel is also run-down. My son's sheet was of good quality, but mine was thin as gauze and should have been replaced long ago. Finishes in our room were banged-up and chipped. Hallways were dirty, especially near the outside doors, and did not appear to be cleaned regularly.
