Location: The Fairfield Inn & Suites Brunswick Freeport is approximately 28 miles NE of the Portland airport. It is conveniently located off I-295 and Hwy 1. However, it is easy to miss your turn onto Old Portland Road, and once you do, you will think you are in the wrong spot.
Value: As Marriott rewards members, we used one of our free night certificates, earned from Marriott's recent promo. Otherwise, our room would have been $179.00. What I love about Fairfield Inn's is that they offer complimentary parking, WiFi, and breakfast. All small expenses, that can really add up, especially for a long stay.
Room: We stayed in room 315, which had a partial wall dividing the sitting area & bed. The room featured two TVs and a Sony sound system compatible with iPhone & iPod. I especially liked the long bathroom counter, with ample room for two people to get ready at the same time. The shower had a Waterpik showerhead with plenty of water pressure. There was also plenty of light in the bathroom for putting on makeup, which is generally not the case in a most hotel rooms. However, the king size bed was centered in the sleeping area, which left very little walking room between the bed & the AC unit. This can be an issue, if you have to get up in the middle of the night.
Housekeeping: Upon arrival, the room was clean and in order. Since we were only there one night, I cannot attest to the daily housekeeping service.
Front Desk: We checked in around 8:45 pm on a Sunday evening. Check-in was quick & efficient. However, we were given a room directly across from the elevator, even though the hotel was no where near capacity. This is the second time this has happened on a free night certificate, and since it happened in two different states, I'm wondering if this is policy for free rewards nights.

Had a perfect travel day yesterday. Actually got away early, 8:45, and had beautiful cold clear weather all day. It was only once we got close to Portland that we saw any snow at all and there it was only deep in the bush. But shortly after we stopped for the night the snow started. It looks like we got about 3" overnight. Luckily we're heading south! Had great Chinese food last night. Who knew we'd find it in Maine! Here's what morning looked like - winter ...
... of the fireworks, so we decided we could stay in our room til 20 minutes before midnight and then head down. Hmm....
As we were walking to the waterfront on instructions from the hotel, I was convinced we were in the wrong place as there was no one anywhere near us! When we got to the water it was dark and deserted and only a handful of other people about! Given there were a zillion people at the earlier fireworks, I was ...
... we'd see something as that was heading towards the White Mountains. And this little conversation started the most lovely lovely day! We got the car and headed inland towards a town called Fryeburg, and as we headed inland we started seeing bits of snow on the sides of the road.... then a frozen lake.... and gradually all of the frozen parts appeared more and more, until we were surrounded by (icy) snow that had fallen a while ago but not melted. ...
... watched the parade of boats flowing past us, glistening under brilliant sun drenched skies. After a walk in the historic port village, we visited the Starlight Cafe for take out sandwiches. A perfect waterfront picnic spot was just paces away from the cafe.
... Maine's Lake Region. I thought Maine would be completely flat. But today's ride was chock full of acute inclines and declines. I had to hop off and push the White Bike, with its recreational gearing, up to the crest of several sharp hills.
I enjoyed my lunch in Naples, looking out on the sparkling water of Long Lake. The only thing moving in ...
