Hi Ted,

By HOJO South do you mean Howard Johnsons Plaza Portland? If so what was it like - I have heard the area around it is in a seedy part of town. Going November 28 and can't decide - did Marriott at Sable Oakes last year but it has gotten quite expensive Thks for your help!

Has anyone tried the Hampton Inn or the HO JO Plaza for a park and fly?

We've done the Hampton Inn a few times now. Everything has been fine. If you are returning late, note their shuttle doesn't run after 11pm. You take a cab and they reimburse.

I think so but don't quote me. It may be the same deal as late at night.

HOJO Plaza Portland, ME Park N/Fly

Has anyone tried HO JO Plaza for a park and fly? The price of $84.95 seems unbelievable. I am worried about my car being broken into/stolen as I am unsure if the HOJO Plaza is in a good or bad part of Portland, ME.

Completely way OT, but can anyone in HRM tell me if Mic Mac Mall is the only location of Build-A-Bear in the city? I have to take my dd to the IWK to see her pediatric ophthalmologist on the 23rd and would like to treat her to a "purple huggery bear" for her to take with her to her appointment.

It's the only location that I am aware of in HRM.

Good luck at the dr's appointment.
