The free wifi was terrible. It took a long time to connect and it wouldn't keep the connection!

Second Stay - Still Great

This was our second stay in about a month. It's a clean, comfortable, pet friendly and very affordable local getaway in southern Maine!

The heated pool was great. The continental breakfast was very good. The beds were comfy and you could control the temperature in the room.

Merely a Cheap Shelter

Posted Dec 20, 2016
First of all, I did not have much interaction with the staff because the first impression they imply is that you needn't any. Just a bunch of hardworking (9-5/Clock-in; Clockout kinda) folks. They don't enjoy being there for the sake of HJH, and you can tell that because Management neglects renovations throughout the facility. It feels like all they do is clean, wash, and change sheets... for the past decade. The room felt muggy in December (photos cannot explain). So what-there is an indoor swimming pool? The amenities feel like it's the 1990s. Pretty much--it's a checkin/checkout kinda motel (not hotel). No wonder it was the cheapest. Great job on management surviving inspections because it appears that that is all they care about; survive state inspections and stay open.

oldie but goodie

Posted Dec 19, 2016
Pros: staff always around to help
Location: portland jetport
This Howard Johnsons is an older building but well kept. The value of the room, pool, breakfast and jet port shuttle was excellent. But the true value was the wonderful staff that helped during a stormy weekend.
