This is our 2nd time staying here. We love the customer service. The food is excellent. The rooms have always been clean and comfortable. If there was ever an issue, it would be resolved immediately. The only issue we had was the people who stayed above us were very loud.

This place is NOTHING like it appears on website; dirty, smelly, run down, and just plain awful. Rooms are nasty, but you can find a prize upon check in like we did, an old baby pacifier was waiting for us when entering the room. Indoor pool closed for the winter, go figure. It is a scary place, with areas boarded... More

Have stayed here before and went back a few days ago. The room was okay but is in need of some touch up. Some of tthe baseboards were stained. On the other hand the room was clean, just not what i expected. They used to give you breakfast for two for one morning, but now only coffee, cocoa, tea or... More

The pictures on the website are incredibly misleading. There was nothing rustic or charming about our room. The outside was everything you see on the website, but the room itself was a hot mess. In fact, I'm pretty sure it was the same room that someone posted pictures of here. And there was black mold on the ceiling of the... More

The grounds of this facility are nicely kept with pretty flowers and a nice feel. Grass for kids to run around and well kept. The staff were friendly and helpful. They are located near Rye and near Portsmouth, making it a good spot if you are going to spend time in both beautiful towns. Our room, however, was not very... More

The title says it all. We were there for a single night. The room was old. The bed was cheap and rigid. The furnishings were a hodgepodge. For half the price it would have been fine. The only redeeming trait was the nice owner.

We were looking for a quick place to stay and do a revisit of Portsmouth and BG's Boathouse for something ot eat. Steve found this on-line and based on my knowing someone who had stayed here he booked it for one night. I would not spend $100 for a king( which is what is on their website!) nor for what... More

We stayed here on March 2 nd, 2013 and it was a terrible experience. We stayed in the Isle of Shoals suite. There were cob webs in the corners, including right above the bed. Just what you want falling on your face when you're sleeping. The room had a weird smell and could have been a lot cleaner. The bedding... More

Please note that this review has been updated/edited based on the Inn contacting me and resolving some of my concerns, specifically by crediting me a portion of the cost to make up for not meeting my expectations. My wife and I were looking for a quick getaway and found this place based on an internet search. Saw a mix of... More
