Pros: Pretty clean hotel. Continent breakfast was good. bed was pretty comfortable.
Cons: Hotel decor was a little dated
Location: Location was excellent and not far from Downtown Portsmouth. This was a major selling point for me in deciding to book a room here.
Room was perfect for what I needed as a last minute booking. I was attending a conference in the area and the conference hotel location was fully booked. Only needed one night and this worked out great.

Location: Convenient to I-95 and a short drive to downtown Portsmouth.
I booked this hotel through Expedia because the rate and location were what I needed to attend a nearby wedding. . However, I was more than pleased. The staff were friendly and helpful, even changing my room to an upper floor when I checked in an agreeable manner.. The pool and hot tub were pleasant surprises, as as the free Continental breakfast, including a waffle iron. :) Only suggestions: breakfast on a Saturday ended at 9 a.m. , a bit early. On the other hand, the pool was open till 11 p.m. -- so I had a nice dip when I returned from the wedding.

Location: Good location. Close to downtown Newport & the Mall of Kittery.
Adjoining room doors have poor sound proofing. We had to keep tv on & sound up so we don't hear the next room constant coming & going traffic.

Only a 5 minute drive from downtown Portsmouth and pretty inexpensive compared to other hotels in the city. Awesome staff and cool hot tub. Definitely bring your own towels and toiletries because the quality isn't there.

Fine hotel

Pros: good location, clean, affordable
Cons: the hotel wasn't updated: we were looking forward to the pool and hot tub which were advertised, but were out of order when we got there indefinitely.
Location: right outside of the center of activity so it was quiet, but easily accessible to central Portsmouth. Boat tours, dining, drinks, shopping nearby
This hotel was reasonably priced, located in a good location in comparison to the center of activity in Portsmouth, and the room was nice, clean and safe. The breakfast was nice as well

Decent Hotel Close to Highway

by from Vermont
Posted Sep 12, 2016
Pros: Room was clean and comfortable. Free wifi and breakfast are great pluses.
Cons: Room key cards were "iffy"; we had to try several times to get our room open every time.
Location: Everything you could need is within about 1.5 miles of the hotel. Very good location, easy on and off I-95.
We stayed over on Thursday/Friday nights for a class reunion in downtown Portsmouth. Hotel is decent for the price. Free coffee all the time in lobby. Parts of hotel are being remodeled. New carpet was just installed throughout. Free parking is apparently a huge bonus for this area. Staff was very nice, even walking to our room to open the door with keycard once when we couldn't get it to work. We didn't get up in time for breakfast. :-) We'd stay again.

The hotel was located in a decent area (walkable to town) but the room was damp. The pool and hot tub were under repairs (2 weeks into it when we arrived) with no email, notice to guests. Very disappointing. For the price it was ok but will probably look elsewhere next time.
