Fireside Inn & Suites
Clean but outdated hotel in nasty location.
Dank, dingy hotel in a miserable location. The staff were nice, the bed was comfortable and the hotel was clean; however, the room we stayed in was badly in need of an update, and the hotel is in a kind of suburban no-man's land just off the highway. The bathroom seemed to be designed for someone very short, and the hotel smelled of air freshener which was failing to mask a pervading scent of tomato soup. A minibar, microwave and coffee machine were stacked on top of each other in the corner of the room. Not the fault of the staff, and the hotel was clean and comfortable; but the location and run down nature of this hotel mean it's best avoided.

Nice, but far out!
A lovely hotel all in all, with nice clean and spacious rooms, but a little further away from 'downtown' than expected/realised on booking at approx. $20 taxi fare. Live music night was good entertainment and bar staff amazing!

Fireside Inn & Suites
Hotel is very dated and in need of an update but rooms are comfortable. It is obviously very popular for conventions as there were two being held during our three nights stay. It is situated on the outskirts of Portland so not an ideal base if you are a tourist wanting to see Portland as you either have to drive and find a parking space or get taxis into historic town or harbour area.

Fireside Inn & Suites
I stayed two nights for a business trip that had a special rate at this hotel. As for cleanliness: the windowsills were extremely dirty and had not been cleaned for some time! There was garbage left under the bed and found when we checked into the hotel. Nothing had been wiped down with a damp cloth as there was dust everywhere! The bathroom was somewhat the cleanest of all except the remaining soap left in the tub that was not cleaned out from the past guest. The breakfast would have been nice but they ran out of many times and did not refill them. Overall we were not all that happy and brought this to the attention of the hotel. Nothing was done nor cleaned even for our second night. We have to stay in Portland for the next 4 Fridays in a row and will not be returning to this hotel unfortunately.
