What a Wonderful Stay!
What a wonderful stay! We came from Canada for my wife's niece's wedding and stayed three nights here. It's a small, family owned and run establishment and that definitely shows in the personal touches that are abundant. If you're looking for all of the bells and whistles of a $500 a night Marriot, this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a nice affordable place to stay, with a decent restaurant that provides great food and drinks, in great serving sizes, for a very affordable rate, then I don't think you could find much better on the island of Portland. Upon our arrival, the owner of the property almost immediately offered us a free upgrade to the best room in the hotel to try and make the stay more comfortable for my wife who has a disability. She was always there to offer help with questions about the area, call us a cab when we needed it- you name it. Honestly, it was one of the nicest parts of our two week trip and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for anyone staying on the island of Portland. Thank you again so very much for your kindness during our stay, and making our trip that much more memorable!

4/10 Fair

The place looked and felt like the military academy it once was. It was cheerless and neglected. We had asked for a king size bed but got the two beds pushed together treatment. The carpet was stained. Be careful in the shower too, very slippery and no sign of a mat or something to help. Some friends had to change room because the electricity didn't work. There appeared to be 2 bars but neither was open. In addition we were a good twenty minute walk from anywhere else we might get drink or food.
