"Somewhat Disappointing"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Arrived early to check in, was not able to get room until almost 3:30. Room was spacious and comfortable but not well cleaned (floor area near night stand/safe had food remnants). The room was booked with what we believed to be at a reduced rate with government ID, however, it wasn't we found it to be misleading. Parking was difficult due to size of vehicle. Breakfast was enjoyable although the wait was long, the food was good. Staff was welcoming and helpful upon arrival even with two lines of customers. Experience at checkout was unfortunately not the same with only one line of customers. Location was convenient but will likely consider another hotel next time we are in the Old Port area. Suggestions would be more front desk help during peak hours, more staff assistance so that rooms are clean and ready for check in times and better transparency with discounted bookings. Thank you for taking the time to consider this review.

"Slow Service"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Check in was ridiculously slow. Everything about the help was slow. Restaurant was very slow. Then charging $10 for parking, that should be part of our stay. As far as upgrades for the family, didn't see any of those.

"Love Being Back Home in Portland."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Our room was clean and inviting. We had breakfast this morning at the Port of Call Restaurant in the hotel. Danielle, graciously appeared at our table and informed me there would not be a charge for the total breakfast. Danielle is a valued Holiday Inn employee, I suggest that management take care of her. I am a Hilton Honors member. However I recently joined the IHG Club and will definitely stay again at a IHG hotel on my way back to Sarasota this September.
