If I could give this place a ZERO, I would. The hotel front desk was totally incompetent! Check in was fine, tho was a bit confused when my room had 2 twin beds instead of a queen. But hey, it was only me, so not a big deal. Turns out that should have been a clue. Later that nite, @... More

The Hotel is Close to the Airport and a Shopping mall, a bit out of downtown and easy to get to. The Lobby is tiny for such a big Hotel, but the room was surprisingly large, modern and clean. Free coffee in the morning, no breakfast. Pretty okay for a few nights, good Price-Quality Ratio. The water in the shower... More

We had the worst night ever at this hotel. We reserved a room with a queen bed & received a double bed...way too small. Staff told us that we had to accept the double as their computer didn't say what size beds were, only how many were in the room! To top it off the air conditioning was broken so... More

We have been staying at this location for 7-8 years now and we were always on an upper floor. This time we were on the 1st floor which was very noisy and not as restful as usual. We will be certain to insist on a room on an upper level if we ever go back. Our trip wasn't as relaxing... More

We've stayed at this Motel 6 in Portsmouth on several occasions as we travel. The hotel grounds and the rooms have always been clean. Courteous staff. Very close to the highway leading to Maine and Massachusetts. They don't serve breakfast, but the low cost helps there to be money available to get breakfast elsewhere. There is a McDonald's across the... More

On a 1,900 mile road trip around the East Coast, and stayed at a couple of Motel 6’s – always know what we are going to get, and always a good experience. Good clean location, just what we needed to refresh for the night.

This was our 3rd stay at this motel. Unfortunately I can not give it as high marks as I did last year. The good: Clean pool, pet friendly, friendly and helpful staff for the most part, good location, comfortable beds, relatively clean. The bad: The bedspreads are obviously not cleaned often and are stained though the rest of the room... More

Okay, it is a Motel 6, but the chain is working to upgrade its properties. This is a relatively new four-story property not far from the interstate and across the street from many dining choices. So the location is a real plus. Yes, it is basic, but it is the most affordable chain here in Portsmouth if you are budget... More

There's not a lot of choice of budget accommodation around here. Motel 6 is basic, I just needed somewhere to sleep and shower, this was fine. It's close to the bus terminal and about 2 miles from Portsmouth itself, which is a great place to visit. Staff were very friendly too. There's also a mall and bar close by for... More

I will never stay at this motel again. We had a smoke free floor but the smoke was still pretty bad. The toilets where pretty loud in the motel. Every time a guess in the motel would flush it would wake us up. The sheets on the bed was stain. I guess next time we will pay extra and stay... More
