Good hotel in the heart of the city

Posted Feb 15, 2016
Pros: Location and quiet.
Cons: Breakfast. Just say continental, not hot breakfast which is what I read.
Location: Right off of downtown. Can walk to fast food restaurants, children's museum, and whatever shopping is in downtown Portsmouth.
This hotel was a pleasant stop on our brief trip. First, we were allowed to check in early (9AM), which was very nice of the manager. The room was okay. The microwave was missing the knob to change from defrost to cook, but since it was stuck on cook it was fine. The room appeared clean, and the bathroom was clean, but some fixtures, such as the tissue holder and toilet paper holder were rusty maybe from being close to the water. The bed was comfortable. The location was good for me; as a city dweller I like the idea of walking to downtown, or the Starbucks and other fast food restaurants across the street, but the hotel was tucked away enough that it was not noisy. The only slight negative I have is the breakfast. It consisted of some round egg things and make your own waffles. I expected a bit more than this for hot breakfast. However, they did have fruit, oatmeal cups, cereal, bagels, bread, and muffins, so there was a variety. All employees greeted us and asked if we needed anything during our stay.

Comfy, cozy

Nice hotel. Only problem was it rained while we were at dinner and the roads were flooded and couldn't get into the hotel entrance but went through the Starbucks lot.

good location next to Portsmouth Naval Hospital. T

Posted Sep 15, 2015
Pros: close to the hospital
Cons: Expedia could ask in their online application if the traveler has any special needs
We booked this room on Expedia. I had a surgical boot on my leg and was using a walker. I requested a first floor room but was told because I booked through a third party they had no control over which room I got. The room was on the third floor, and was filthy. the bathroom reeked of urine and the carpet badly needed shampooing. The AC struggled to maintain a cool room, the hair dryer was falling off the wall and the switch on the tub faucet to switch from tub to shower was frozen in place halfway between so the shower barely put out any water. In short room maintenance. was not being done. I would not recommend this hotel to a friend.

Dirty, broken hotel

Posted Sep 15, 2015
There seems to be little upkeep or pride in the hotel. In the stairway, there were piles of old lamps in the corner. In the hallways, they had stacked old tables. The room seemed to be not cleaned. I found old toothpaste containers on the shelves and coffee grounds all over the counter. There were no complimentary shampoo or soap in the bathroom. The only good things about this hotel was the location and the bed was comfortable. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

This hotel is just OK.

Posted Sep 15, 2015
Pros: See above.
Cons: Cleaner rooms.
Location: See above
Hotel staff were very accommodating and pleasant; however, room could have been cleaner. The location is good for old town Portsmouth, and it is close enough to run to the beach. Would possibly stay here again, as the price was good.
