Good budget hotel

Posted Aug 23, 2015
Pros: The huge whirlpool tub in the deluxe room and the two large TV's.
Cons: I thought the furniture (couch and chair) were a little worn.
Location: The Ohio River is very close as is Shawnee State University.
We stayed in a deluxe room and it was really nice. It was very clean and seemed to be recently updated. The hotel staff was very nice as well. The only way I could tell it was a "budget" hotel is that the towels and bedding weren't as high of quality as you would get in a more expensive hotel. There are very few hotels in Portsmouth so we will stay here again when we visit my son who is at the University in Portsmouth.

Good hotel

Posted Aug 10, 2015
I booked a king size bed room. When I got at the hotel I was put into a 2 queen size bed room. I talked to Expedia they said it was the hotel. The hotel said it was Expedia. The 2nd night my key didn't work after going up and down to get it reset. The desk clerk and to use a metal key to open it. After I checked out I checked my bank had a unknown charge from the hotel (which was explained that every hotel does it when using a card), the manager was called and he discounted my room even more and I only got charged for a standard room instead since my stay was less the expected. By him doing this I would definetly come back to stay here and give them a second shot.

4th of July weekend, the hotel was fine, but the surrounding area is a little sketchy. Portsmouth is a dirty little town.

Convenient location for our family's to meet up

Posted Jun 24, 2015
Pros: Very friendly helpful staff, nice hotel even though it was a little older. I would recommend it. As long as you are expecting a Hilton.
Cons: A little renovation to carpets, and pool. It smelled a bit musty.
Location: Not much to do in Portsmouth that I am aware of!
We were meeting my son to give him his twins back after a weeks visit. We were going to spend the night and visit then each go back home the next day. once we checked in we decided to go out to eat. My son's car would not start. Since it was a Sunday we were out of luck calling anyone for help. When it became apparent that it was going to be very much later when we checked out on Monday I ask to keep one of the rooms until we got help. Alas all worked out and we were able to leave. When I went to chech out they had not charged for the room. They helped make a very stressful situation less stressful and a little less expensive! They also had a very nice hot breakfast!

only rooms available in Portsmouth

Posted May 12, 2015
This hotel is, unfortunately, extremely outdated and drab. The sofa in our room, as well as tables and chairs, showed tremendous wear and tear. I would have gotten rid of this furniture in my own home at last 10 years ago. Towels are thin and small, again worn out. Bathroom shower leaked non-stop. Drapes are missing numerous rod hangers causing them to droop and fail to close. Never again. We would have been more comfortable driving up to Columbus to sleep each night.

Nice Hotel very close to Shawnee State College

Posted May 10, 2015
Pros: Clean
Cons: Noise control
Location: ok
Things were nice and so was the staff. My only complaint was that we was the first room next to the counter and breakfast area and we could hear every time the ice machine dropped ice and when someone got ice. We could also hear people talking in the lobby.

Loud - Noisy - Price Kept Changing

Posted Feb 21, 2015
Kids running up and down the hall until 1:30 am. In room fridge cycled constantly - finally unplugged. 1 inch gap under doors. Stairway doors and room doors slamming constantly on a Thursday night. Just didnt seem clean. Continental breakfast was weak & dry.

Fair rates

Nice room. Very clean. About half the price of the local Holiday Inn.
