Very comfy, nicely rennovated hotel

Posted Aug 21, 2015
Cons: Check-in wasn't great. The staff seemed very confused, but eventually they got everything settled.
I was there for 5 nights and it was just fantastic. The bed was super comfortable, rooms were very nice, and the hotel has recently been completely renovated. The shuttle to downtown was great and I enjoyed the happy hour (free beer, wine, and snacks).

Like it

Posted Aug 18, 2015
Pros: Relaxed, home like with comfortable beds and self catering facilities including an fridge freezer,coffee making and cooking facilities in your room
Location: On the outskirts of Portsmouth where you can wander along the harbour and independent stores no big chain stores. USS Albacore nearby is worth a visit
Second time of visiting like it - but it is a family hotel/suites so if you want a quite breakfast - which is good by the way- you would have to go down early - we went just after 6am (jet lag helps!) because it can be very busy and noisy later. Though you could collect your breakfast and take it back to your room which many do. Facilities are good and clean. The shuttle bus runs every half hour need to book at reception - will take you down town or wherever you want to go within reason saves driving and hassle of parking-and you can ring them to collect you. Staff are pleasant and accommodating.

Fabulous!

Posted Aug 13, 2015
AWESOME! My only complaint is that it was VERY crowded during evening social hour and breakfast. But seeing how these meals were totally free (included in stay), I'm willing to put up with the crowd.

Thank you for the kind review! Sorry about heavy traffic during breakfast and dinner. I hope you were able to still get everything you wanted. I see that you are from Stowe! It is my favorite place in the world to visit winter and summer! I have been going there since I was 5 every year! Did anything else happen during your stay that we can improve on, that caused a rating of a 1 star?

Outside town but excellent hotel.

Posted Aug 2, 2015
Hotel outside town but free courtesy bus into town was fantastic for drop off and pick up, all the staff were so helpfull they went that extra mile to accommodate us. The room was excellent with a two bedded bedroom and a lounge area with a sofa bed, also a full kitchen. The hotel was very clean. Breakfast was OK but choice was limited but enough to go round. Would recommend this hotel to anyone especially families on a budget.

Convenient, quiet location

Posted Aug 2, 2015
Pros: Comfortable, clean, great front desk staff.
Front desk staff went out of their way. It was a very busy weekend in Portsmouth, and they recommended we take the hotel shuttle into town, or drive a short distance to where there was free parking and a city shuttle coming and going all night on the half hour, which is what we did. I am a very light sleeper and I didn't hear a "peep" all night. I can't remember ever not being disturbed by slamming doors, loud guests, or water running from other guest rooms.

Suites are nice

Posted Jul 29, 2015
I like Homewood Suites, rooms are nice and plenty of room to spread out. Only stayed 1 night but with 3 adults, still nice to have the room. Very clean, overall very satisfied.

Better than expected

Posted Jul 9, 2015
I am not a fan of hotels outside the Caribbean but my wife and I needed somewhere to stay for a few days. After arriving in Portsmouth we went straight to the hotel which was tucked away from the highway. The hotel was well kempt inside and out and the staff was friendly. Whatever small needs we had they took care of effortlessly. We had a first floor room which was clean and continued that way each day afterwards again thanks to a member of the cleaning staff, Ami. The first floor walls were stripping but from the signage around the area, the hotel is in the middle of renovations. I had never been to NH before and frankly I plan on visiting again sometime soon. Whether you went left or right out of the hotel there's always something to do. If that wasn't to your liking you could go to ME or MA. Great hotel and location overall.

Nice, quiet area, very friendly staff, room so so

Posted Jul 8, 2015
I liked the location of the hotel very much. It is convenient to access from free ways, malls yet very quite. Staff were very courteous in service. Sofa beds are not for such hotels, they are okay to be in a camping cottage. That is the only thing I didn't like at this place

We always stay here.about 4 times a year

Posted Jun 30, 2015
Always a great stay. Free shuttle. Great breakfast. I wish it was until later than 9. Last time we waited 30 mins for more eggs and the fruit salad and milk went bad milk was sour and fruit spoiled. It was a busy morning so I won't hold it against them. We're staying again Thursday night:)

Thank you for your positive feedback! I am sorry about the busy breakfast and quality towards the end of it. Being the busy summer months I find that the earlier you come the less busy it is! We look forward to your arrival tonight!
