Positive Reviews

Great location..

Drivers appreciate the affordably-priced parking, and most are happy to leave their cars in the garage for the duration of their stay, as the bars, restaurants, and galleries of the Old Port District are well within walking distance. The Portland Museum of Art and the Children's Museum are just across the street. There is also a complimentary shuttle guests can call for trips around town or to the nearby Portland International Jetport.

Comfortable rooms with a view

Guests generally find the rooms to be sparkling clean, with comfortable furnishings and useful small appliances. Many enjoy gazing out at the ocean after a good night's sleep.

Friendly. welcoming staff

The front desk staff and shuttle drivers have received many rave reviews for their personable and professional customer service, with guests noting that they are happy to provide directions, recommend restaurants, and accommodate special requests. The complimentary coffee, lemonade, and cookies in the lobby are also well appreciated.

Negative Reviews

Secondhand smoking rooms..

Some floors feature both smoking and non-smoking rooms. Several non-smoking guests were bothered by the cigarette odor wafting into their rooms through the vents or in from the hallways.

Time for refurbishment..

Though most guests are pleased with the overall condition of the rooms, some guests are turned off by dated furnishings and decor. A few also found the beds uncomfortable or the shower heads set too low.

Nobody's perfect..

Though reviews of the staff are largely positive, a few guests did experience indifferent or even impolite service at the front desk or at the bar. A few others felt "by the Bay" in the hotel's name to be a bit of stretch, and did not enjoy the downhilll walk to the harbour area.
