I stayed here one night while traveling from NJ to Maine. I had a handicapped accessible room. It was newly redecorated and was very clean and comfortable. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The staff was helpful but desperately needs some training. After 10 hours of driving, I asked for a dinner recommendation. The only choice given was a chain restaurant... More

I wasn't a super huge fan of this hotel but it wasn't absolutely horrible. It was fine for the one night that we had passing through. The woman at the front desk was really nice and gave us a lot of pointers for the rest of our day.

This is a friendly clean place to stay close to Portsmouth, but less expensive. Right near the malls and priced right! Pet friendly . It is a safe and secure location for any traveler. A sure bet if you are on your own

I arrived at the front desk to check in, the person told me I had no reservation that evening. I showed them the reservation confirmation on my phone but that meant nothing to them. The system they use did not see it so my issue was my problem. Because I had others staying at the same hotel that evening I... More

The only thing this motel is good for is a one night stay or a one night hook up. The amenities of this motel are a bar of soap every day, and some light brown water which is supposedly the free coffee they offer. The rooms are OK. But this is definitely NOT a place you want to take your... More

this is a clean motel and in an excellent location right across from a very large mall. The motel room is basic with just the bed and tv. No WiFi, no Microwave, no fridge. Also no breakfast, this place is just a room for the night.

The room was clean. But very basic. Not comfortable at all. No hairdryer. All of the lights are the obnoxious fluorescent ones. Nothing 'homey' about this place. Thankfully I have a rental car- I am sure the rims on my car would have been removed during the night. Sure it's cheap, but I will not return here!

We stayed there one night since we saw it was listed as pet friendly. Front desk staff very friendly toward 2-leggeds as well. Rooms very clean and rather on spartan side: laminate flooring and not even a clock on bedside table. No extra pillows or blankets- probably so no one will be tempted to use them for Fido. Bathroom has... More

We checked in early, knowing we probably would not have access to our room yet, but the very accommodating and friendly Front Desk staff checked with housekeeping and they found a clean room for us. And we were just a few rooms down from friends we were traveling with. Great service! My only complaint was the AC was left on... More

I stayed here in October with my husband and small dog. The motel was very modern and clean but you can hear everything in the halls and in the rooms next to you and above your room as well, very loud! Would not stay here again as I had our little dog with me us and all night she growled... More
