Absolutely amazing staff – the receptionist was very friendly, the restaurant staff was FANTASTIC – drinks were yummy and the food was scrumptious! Thank you guys!!!The room was very good size, however the bed isn’t anything special Goose Down comforter without a duvet

YUCK! The room was cold the bathroom had some hairs laying around that were definitely not ours 😅🤣😂 We couldn’t fall asleep for a solid hour, because there were some noises coming from unknown sourcesThe breakfast was good and satisfying


This is a solid downtown Portland/Old Port hotel, especially in the off-season It’s still a great location in the summer, but I’m sure noisier with some of the rooms facing Fore Street To their credit, my room came with a noise machine which goes a long way in my experience

I was on the 4th floor facing Fore Street It wasn’t really an ocean view so much as the ocean was in that direction, but the height put me above most nearby office windows so I could lay in bed in the morning, next to the big window, and watch the seagulls fly around the historical buildings The room had a nice set-up with a couch for hanging if you had anyone over Also, a mini-fridge, at a hotel in the Old Port! Give me a fridge over a mini-bar any day of the week so I can keep my own leftovers and beer stash instead of paying $10 for a waterIt’s not a brand new hotel My room (422) had one or two stains on the carpet and the shower could use a once over for the mildew that gets in between tiles, but otherwise was clean – certainly no bugs or anythingReally nice staff all around I’m actually local but my girlfriend and I plan on staying here in the off-season next year just for a mid-week break Not a bad place to stay at all, especially if you can get a deal relative to the new, expensive hotels on Commercial

Excellent view of Portland Harbor from the “King Bed Balcony Peaks Island View” (see pics) Room was very clean Friendly staff

Solid breakfast (scramble eggs, home fries, yogurt parfait, French toast sticks, sausage, bagels & juices)Glad the option for all day parking in the garage next door is offered for $30 a nightThis is a good value for parking in this downtown area Other parking lots/structures in this area charge $8 an hourMy one request is for the hotel to power wash the Seagull poop off the building on the other side of the balconies on the 7th FL maybe once a week (see last picture, didn’t crop it out of this pic, so you know what I’m talking about)I know this is a hotel in a harbor town, but, this is my one constructive criticismBesides that everything was wonderful and I would definitely stay here again

Had a great time here while visiting the city of Portland This hotel is dog friendly, just be sure to give the staff a heads up before you arrive The room had everything we needed to be comfortable

While the rooms do look like they could use an update, for the price I don’t mind dealing with older styled rooms Sometimes we could hear other guests in their room, but for the most part this was not an issueThe free breakfast was a great start to the day, it had hot foods and snacks you could take with you It is located right off the highway and it’s about an 8 minute drive to downtown Portland Staff were very polite and helpful

Maryann Lindquist

We had a lovely stay last weekend! From check-in to check-out, everything went great! Isabella, who works at the front desk, was very helpful and pleasant The room was quite clean, and the beds are extremely comfortable When I returned home, I noticed that I had left my book at the hotel

The manager went above and beyond the call of duty by mailing home to me, which I really appreciated! I would recommend this hotel!

Cassandra Rohacek

My husband and I had stayed at this hotel earlier in the year when we were house-hunting in the area We were up from New Jersey and the location was ideal and convenient We met Patrick during our first stay and he showered us with excitement as we exchanged stories and laughs

We recently were up for a last-minute one-night stay and Patrick couldn’t be more accommodating He graciously provided us with anything we needed during our stay, but his bright personality and genuine love for life will keep us coming back and continue recommending this hotel for our family and friends We look forward to stays here in the future and enjoying breakfast & coffee with the one and only Patrick

Steven Jones

I have the company pay for the hotel here because the rooms cost more than the perdium I receive, so when I checked in for 10 days they asked me for a card for incidentals $50 I’m fine with that, lots of hotels do that, but not here, they charged over $190000 on my personal debit card

Then they keep a hold on it for who knows how long, I told them 7-10 days is unacceptable This all just happened on Monday and it’s now Wednesday and it’s still on hold So resist giving them a card if possible Another thing that is very disappointing is the fact they don’t even offer free coffee anymore No continental breakfast But there’s a plus you can spend your money at the bistro, In other words, this stay has been very disappointing I don’t think that all the staff is incompetent maybe just one? But the rooms are nice, comfortable beds, & the bistro guy was very friendly

From the moment I checked in, I was made to feel welcome Special shout out to Stefania, who was so helpful and calming when I checked in, barefoot and in a bit of a panic!! And she was so kind and helpful during the rest of my stay She really understands customer service

Everyone was helpful, friendly, and it was nice to chat with folks during my 7 month stay

Cynthia Hass

I was up through the night either freezing or hotI went to the night clerk and told him what was up with the a/c, his answer to me when the room gets too cold the heat kicks on ??? ( this was a thermostat issue)The stove top in the kitchen was filthy,dirty dishes in the dish washer, the white coverlet I noticed in twas discolored with a yellow castI was there for one night and arrived around 8 pm went to dinner and came back to room around 10 pm

I didn’t notice the kitchen and stained coverlet till morningThe breakfast was lacking would have been nice if they served bacon or sausageI paid $27000 for a lousy night stay

Deb Sterkenberg

The staff at this hotel are amazing under the general manager leadership, Kim I have been a long term stay at this facility and you could never find the level of service (and kindness) like you have at this hotel All the staff take pride in the work they do

Rooms are extremely clean, and the public areas are always neat and orderly Staff is friendly and always aiming to please I would highly recommend this facility!

My family and I stayed at the Sea Drift over the weekend Missy the owner of the Sea Drift checked us in and was extremely nice and accommodating Missy went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay

She was very helpful with recommendations She really seems to genuinely care for all of her guestsI left mine and my daughter’s bathing suit in the shower by accident Missy called my cell phone 15 mins after we left to inform us that we left our swim suits behind She offered to mail the bathing suits to my home Later that day, I received an email from Missy with the tracking number for our swim suitsMy family and I will definitely be back

My family decided to take a day trip and after a long day decided to stay for the nightWe found 1 room available at this hotel and had an awesome experience The owner was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond for us as we even forgot some things in our room and she contacted us and mailed everything to our home

I strongly recommend staying here if your looking for a nice hotel within walking distance to everything

Linda Rowe

The room was cute and cozy Very clean The water pressure in the showers were amazing ! The staff were very friendly when we were leaving in the morning we saw the cleaning staff sanitizing the outdoor patio chairs which made me happy to see they are taking all precautions against covid

Kiran Varughese

The property is centrally located Easy to drive or walk into Portland or nearby dining options Plenty of free parking on-site

The breakfast has a good selection of the conventional stuff – waffles, cupcakes, bagels, muffins, cereal, boiled eggs, etc Hot beverages and cold water are available 24/7, which is a huge positiveGiven COVID-19 protocols, turn down service is only for guests who stay longer than five days However, you can always get fresh towels and linen Trash just needs to be kept out in the corridor and get new bags from the front desk/housekeeping cartThe rooms are spacious and the bed was very comfortable, the pillows not so much The also gave us a pretty good crib and our 11-month old slept well It is an old property but maintained well There was good water pressure in the shower The toiletries are also good and Made in USAThe staff are prompt and courteous

Stephanie Chase

Conveniently located near the center of town, which was handy since we were going to a show at the State Theater The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean I do have complaints thoughThe bathroom in the room was clean overall, other than the hair monster in the shower drain

Beds are a bit too solid The pillows were the worst I’ve ever used my entire life They kept getting really flat Even scrunching them up with my arms didn’t help They sounded like they had popped bubble wrap in them The continental breakfast had good choices for older people Need to have more options that appeal to teens and children, like pancakes, waffles, french toast, bacon, scrambled eggs Variety was pretty good otherwise Fitness center is nice as are the lobby and patio area Staff was helpful and friendly

Keith Lowe

They do not clean room’s daily and you have to leave trash and dirty towels in the hallway Rooms where clean, staff friendly and it is located within walking distance to the Seadogs ball park and to adult use dispensaries Denny’s is also within walking distance

Not a picturesque place but I was there for work I never got to try breakfast because we left before 6 am and breakfast wasn’t served till 6:30 Worth the price in my opinion

Nancy Martin

We stayed at the Inn and had a wonderful time I love the way the room was decorated and the balcony overlooking Portland harbor was the perfect spot to people watch, relax, read a book, and watch the sunset Breakfast was included, tasty, and the wait staff were all helpful

The housekeeping staff were also wonderful The location was conveniently close to the beaches and nice restaurants I would definitely come back again

Ellen Berlin

The in Is lovely It is convenient to the ferry and well situated near the busy part of the island

The rooms are very nice and comfortable, albeit spare self furnished Some have balconies overlooking the bayAnd that leads to my one big complaint It would have been really nice to sit n the balcony and watch the goings on, read a book, and the sunset But the balconies have hardly any furniture! Mine had 2 simple chairs — not even a little table to put a drink/snacks on And an ottoman to kick up my feet would have been even better It’s really should be one of the features of the room and it was a bit of a disappointmentA breakfast credit came with the room which was a nice surprise No one mentioned it to me at check in Luckily I read some of the materials in the room and I figured it out And the breakfast was very goodOverall it was fine Not exceptional For the price I expected a little more,

Kimberly Cough

Stopped by to grab a late lunch/early dinner with my family because we were starving We were sat almost immediately and the service was excellent All of the interactions I had with the staff were lovely

I had the haddock sandwich and hummus appetizer (pictured below) and both were delicious The food came out quickly, hot, and still tasted amazing

I cannot give this place more stars!! From the moment I got on the phone they were so helpful in finding us a room that suited our needs and even more Very clean and well kept rooms Spectacular view of the ocean with a great pool available as well

There is a cute little breakfast spot attached that I recommend as well This is definitely a place we will be coming back to visit

Rob Andrews

These are definitely two star rooms One air conditioner for a two bedroom suite that cost nearly $300 a night Yes the beach access is great but the entire hotel is dated

I don’t mind paying a premium price for a beachfront hotel but when it’s the middle of summer and you have busted controls on a air conditioner that is nowhere near large enough to cool the entire suite you’re overcharging for a barely comfortable room Would not stay here again

Ricky A

Great location, walking distance to several great beach bars and restaurants Multiple properties, stayed at the main location right on the beach 20 ft walk to the beach! Beach chairs available for rent, just need to make a deposit

Close to the pier, but far enough so you don’t get the noise Highly recommend for a week or weekend getaway

Beautiful hotel The rooms are big and clean They had the best creams and shampoos I have ever tried in a hotel

They also had amazing wine and local snacks I was so impressed The decor in the rooms and hotel were beautiful I would definitely go back We had dinner at the restaurant attached and it was delicious yet expensive The best part of out experience there was the attention we got from the gentleman at the front desk, Mauro He was thoughtful, entertaining and helpful We had a fantastic time Excellent service

Jin Li Frick

Hotel fell short of average expectations Other similar priced hotels would have been more comfortable and more pleasant experienceROOM- Basic and noisy

My room (#003) was located in the sub basement The furnishings were basic, which is tolerable if not for the noise Floors are thin and floor creaks, footsteps (worse if the person had shoes on) and furniture being moved in the room above me went on throughout the night through 2 am I saw that this issue had been raised in previous reviews but still not fixed In this sub basement apparently odors also linger because one room brought fast food back and the oily fried food smell lingered all day and nightSERVICE- Lacks attention to detail Reception usually only had one person and service was not delivered with a smile (a minimum expectation) My friend asked for decaf coffee and person said “we don’t have any” She asked if they could get it for the next day He replied “I don’t think so,” and that was it Each morning you’re sent a text message on whether you’d like the room cleaned That’s great but one day I replied “yes after 12:30” Housekeeping started knocking on the door two hours before and kept returning until I messaged reception again to have them wait till my indicated time One morning the person working there was blasting music and dancing I’m ok with that but wondered if guests still in their rooms (given the thin walls and floors) appreciated the noise

Cam Bosch

Booked a night at random – long time Portland resident The Francis was absolutely perfect I had room 304 and it was also perfect

Staff was friendly and not overbearing They text and communicate well – which I enjoy a lot They let me know that the desk person leaves at 10pm but gave me all the info I needed Room was small, but I was there to sleep and relax not hang out inside lol Its so close to all the dope west end bars and restaurants Felt like I was staying at my rich grandmas low key, which is awesome lol Vibe was times a million also Will absolutely stay again and recommend to all friends and family

Baby Blue Wrangler

Awesome inn and staff, clean, professional, short boardwalk to awesome beach, Dog friendly, we keep going back every year Could not get the room we wanted as everything was booked, so accepted the corner suite we were not sure if we would like it, as it overlooks the parking lot and a field Found it to be a super nice room, it was easy to get loaded/unloaded and coming/going as there was a door right outside, nice soaking tub, and a great value

Didn’t mind not having the ocean view as it was only 20 steps around the building to see the ocean anyway, got room service from the Sea Glass, multiple times, was good each time

Michael Shorstein

One the nicest 4 star resorts, by far (not all 4 stars are equal)! We will be back The 1 bedroom suites are wonderful – facing the ocean Ground floor is special because of the large patio facing the ocean although there was some noise from the upstairs guests walking

The accommodations and use of space displayed a touch of elegance with a desire to fulfill all the needs of a long-term visitor (his and her closets, TV chairs, and plentiful drawers in the bedroom) The space is expertly configured with no waisted areaOutside the large bedroom is a living room (separated by a heavy wood pocket door) which contains a fireplace surrounded by a small sofa and 2 comfy chairs The living room area also has a dining room table that seats 4 and a small kitchen with a coffee maker, full refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, sink, and dishes A counter separates the kitchen and the dining room tableThe room looks far bigger because the picture windows overlook the ocean and a welcoming front porch that includes a sofa and chairs for outdoor relaxation

Julia Chaney

We had our elopement wedding here and it was absolute perfection Inn by the Sea was a beyond gorgeous place to be married Kathleen who helped us was so kind and helpful

She checked in with us periodically, and answered any and all questionsIf our wedding didn’t earn them 5 stars The room alone would have We had the loft suite Amazingly spacious, clean and had everything you could want Cannot wait to spend a future anniversary here

The shower was both painful and merely a mist Not enough to wash the sand of my legs! It’s been mentioned but the walls are indeed paper thin Balcony’s don’t have any privacy

Now for the good bits The salt water pool is heated which was a nice conclusion after a beach day The beach is right there and wasn’t too busy Far enough away from the hustle downtown Everyone is very nice The toaster, fridge/freezer and microwave were very convenient

Nicole Keon

Love this place! Perfectly right on the beach, nice private pool area Great room size, clean rooms, great prices Only major downfall is the parking

Way too tight and not monitored enough because we’ve had to hunt people down to move their cars cuz apparently common sense hasn’t made a comeback yet SUVs park in the compact car parking and on the other side cars aren’t pulling up all the way make it so you can’t even drive through

Adrian O’Leary

Not sure why there are complaints; this is a nice hotel Price was about on par with what something that’s NOT Motel 6 runs these days Our room was clean, (and YES it had a bathtub??) beds were comfortable, and the staff we dealt with were all pleasant

One minor issue was the A/C making wheezing sounds all night but again, a minor issue We made use of the salt water pool which was very clean (We were there for over two hours and had it to ourselves) Free shuttle from and to the airport was great We had breakfast in the restaurant and it was good although the menu is small

All Adds

Overall it was very nice The room was very clean and quiet with comfortable beds and linens A nice big smart TV that you could watch comfortably in bed, and a nice walk-in shower

Location is private and quiet The staff was very friendly and helpful The restaurant was not so impressive, drinks were very average and food was not hot enough

Roberta Tibbetts

We stayed two nights for a wedding Attention should be given to the guest rooms as well as bathroom supplies in both guest rooms and common bathrooms The rooms are dated and not as I would expect of a Sheraton and the price

Obvious struggle for adequate and knowledgeable employee service The two bugs and one worm in our bathroom was unexpected in a Sheraton Our room was on the handicapped floor but the rise of the ramp floor created difficulty for more than me to maneuver The room door is narrow and heavy for wheelchair accessibility The height of the marble stoop on the entrance/exit to the room makes getting a wheelchair over it difficult We ate two meals in the restaurant and were pleased with both the food and the service The activities of the wedding went well, but, again, a shortage of staffing was evident for set up Over all, we enjoyed the event

Beautiful place The staff was great There was a new worker, so we just gave her grace

We had ordered salads at the pool bar & they weren’t what was advertised It was a farmer’s vegetable salad, so we expected a variety of vegetables, but it was standard lettuce & cherry tomatoes No dressing was provided She then gave us mayonnaise, and we told her it wasn’t dressing Then when she brought dressing, it was the wrong kind No big deal just wasn’t great due to our group’s timing The next morning, my friend’s eggs weren’t cooked well & my breakfast potatoes were cold They swapped them out, but it threw our timing off again Thankfully, we had our dinner meal elsewhere The location and cleanliness of the room made up for it The accommodations were beyond 5 star We’d definitely go back & maybe cook our own food or seek out the other restaurants for our meals

The room was spacious, the bathroom was the best feature Stayed here this past weekend with my 2 boys and husband Loved exploring the area

ISSUES: Non-dairy powder creamer in the rooms, why?? 1 This is unhealthy and cheap! Non-dairy cream does not exist in nature! give customers a choice, put some REAL cream for $500 /night 2 All coffee options are dark roast, even the coffee in the lobby was bitter(choices🤷‍♀️) 3 No house sleepers or robes , after 4 showers, the bathroom is misty with slippery floors 4 No full length mirror 5 No windows so you cant see outside

We loved it Stayed at the inn for 4 nights It is so nice to stay on an island

The staff was very friendly and helpful The pool and hot tub were really nice Our room was awesome for the 3 of us Our 13 year old son loved the arcade with the bowling and pool table We loved exploring the island and we most of all enjoyed the quiet We were prepared for the lack of food service but they had a nice breakfast sandwich and great barbecue on Monday night We loved it Definitely worth it

The location of this hotel is amazing, and you’re surrounded by tons of stores and shops They accommodate you with a shuttle drive to nearby places which is very convenient and kind The front desk staff are great and the shuttle driver is super sweet

I won’t ever forget the warm cookie, or two that I normally get when I’m here A great hotel stay Comfortable room and bed

I’ve never actually stayed at this hotel However, there’s a convention that’s held here every year that I attend/volunteer for and I don’t know man, I think we gotta give some serious props to this place for always being a fantastic venue The ground floor is very efficiently set up and easy to get around

And there’s a bit of a restaurant near the center of it that I always enjoy getting a burger from every year

Lisa H20s

Accommodations were top notchstaff top notch!!! dine in restaurant was awful!!!! Do not order the fish n chips

absolutely a frozen product we serve the same exact product at the chain restaurant I manage howeverfor $20 a plate they should be ashamed you can’t just slap it on some “newspaper” and send it out with prepackaged tartar sauce call it fish n chips however the staff was incredible considering they were short staffed and overwhelmed they made a special meal for our child that wasn’t on the menu (grilled cheese) definitely go backbut definitely eat elsewhere

We checked in on the 26th around 5 We checked out around 7 and spent more money to change hotels We didn’t feel safe The room had a terrible odor of smoke and mold

There seemed to be a lot of people just standing around the parking lot There were burn holes in the carpet, elevator was non functioning by and just overall, not a good place to stay Spend the extra money for a nicer place

Mark Barber

Sketchy people around out side of hotel and they were also roaming inside I am fairly certain they were not staying here The back door was held open with a 5 gallon paint bucket

Not safe Most of the lobby was full of tv boxes and was a mess I guess they are renovating but they should have closed if you can’t pick things up Shower drained very slowly so you were in a puddle Elevator did not have permit in case No trash can in room, also the lobby smelled terrible We had the two full bed rooms and there were only two towels in each room We had three people and registered that with the reservationThe literal only plus was the staff at the desk was polite I know Portland is expensive but this place was highway robbery for what we were charged

I am a traveling nurse During my stays, the hotel was clean and quiet I love the little kitchen

It is well stocked with kitchen items you need They even have a hot plate you can use The bed is comfortable I check in and out online and use the digital key so have not dealt with the front desk staff so I won’t comment on that One weekend I forgot my sound machine (I work nights) It’s so quiet, I didn’t miss the white noise at all I highly recommend this home away from home to my fellow traveling nurses! I won’t stay anywhere else

Randy K

Everything was clean Room was modern and had everything I would need for my stay Breakfast was typical for this chain, workout room had enough for a light workout

Has laundry machines on site but I did not need to use on this stay Staff was friendly I only needed to stay one night before my return flight home Please read all reviews and evaluate

Horrible experience in my life ever I booked too queen rooms with the kitchen I am traveling with 3 kids and my wife

I woke up at 1 am in the morning with some itching in legs and my back First I thought it was mosquito bites but the itching got worse and I checked to make sure if there were bed bugs I looked online to verify and sure it was bed bugs and there were quite a few under the mattrees I called the front desk immediately and she says first we can offer new clean sheets and declines to give me another room and tells me they are all booked We had to call several times and the housekeeper guy comes in to the room He took some pics too I am terrified cause this is my first experience with bed bugs and I have 3 kids and I was very worried Finally they did switch me to another room but me and my wife could not sleep all night I have bites all over in my torso, legs , forehead I still have itching and bites The night staff told that there was no manager on duty and he will come in 10 am We wait until 10 am and the morning receptionist tells us that she is not sure when he is coming? What a joke, how can a manager be not called even at night in this situation? So she gave us his number and would promise that he would call us on Monday but never go a call back I am health care professional and i should report to to the health department Such a horrified experience and dirty place that no one should stay here The housekeeping guy who cleaned the room at night time with bed bugs is serving breakfast in the morning too?
