Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Safe and Easy to Find. Clean, comfortable and the staff is very nice."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Clean, comfortable and the staff is very nice. We always book at Fireside Inn & Suites Portland when in the area because it is clean, safe and easy to get to from I 95. Super close to Portland for quick access to doctors, businesses and great dining experiences.

"You cannot make this up! Awful Lodgings."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I made reservations a month in advance. I paid for five people but upon arrival, were told they did not have cots or day beds. It was late, so there were choices. My son,51, slept in the car! Our initial room said "non smoking". Upon entering the room, we could not breathe because the smoke smell was overwhelming. We pulled the covers down on the bed and aside from being dirty there were bugs. We took pictures and headed back to the front desk. We were placed in another room. Overall, it was a disaster Experience! Management could care less.

"A dreadful experience and would not recommend."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
As we were late, I called and told Fireside Inn we would arrive 12:00 pm midnight. We were exhausted! Kevin, front desk person, put us in a room for four and we made reservations for 5, requesting a day bed. As we were walking in the halls, we noticed bugs on the walls. The room was overwhelmed with cigarettes that our eyes burned. In pulling down the sheets, they were dirty and had a bug. We took pictures! We immediately went back to Kevin at the front desk. He seemed reluctant to change our room until he could sense our growing anger and frustration. We stated the reasons for another room. We inquired about our day bed and his response was "you need to do that when you sign in." I thought that is what we were doing? There were no day beds available. We got another room which was better but my son, 51 years old, had to sleep in the car. Really? The Gaul to charge us $224.16 for a night's stay in a dirty, bug infested Hotel is shocking. Upon leaving, we shared our displeasure with the front desk. By no means, would we recommend this Inn! Someone needs to take a better look at what they are offering Guests.

"Hotel is a bit run down."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Fan didn't work in bathroom, no plug/stopper for bathtub,lots of stains in bathtub. But, hotel staff was very nice and things were generally pretty clean. Very quiet as there was no one there despite urgings of reservation company insisting there was only one room left (someone can't do math). Pool looked a bit mirky which was a real shame as that's why we chose that hotel so we could swim :(.
