We stayed here while driving up to Maine. The room was the nicest one we stayed in for the whole 10 day vacation. The people of New Hampshire were the nicest people. The pool was heated and the kids loved it. I wish we could have spent a few days here.

I'm glad this inn / motel is relatively highly rated, but for us it didn't quite work out. The first problem was that our reservation booked as part of a group was somehow not entered into the system, and when we tried to sort it out later, we were unable to get the block rate -- so we paid full...

Rich: Thanks so much for your review. It was an honor hosting the wedding group, and it was rewarding for all of us to see such a fun group celebrating a wonderful occasion. It was great meeting you Sunday morning, and I again want to apologize for the inconvenience caused by the plumbing problem. It was fixed that day, but... More

Thanks so much for you review and your stay. Carol and Skip are among the most skilled and dedicated people with whom I have had the pleasure of working, and between them, they have been with us for a combined 40 years. Thank you for recognizing their efforts and professionalism. I hope you will chose our hotel again. More

Clean, reasonable...friendly staff Bathroom small but adequate and clean. Nicer towels than many of the Hamptons we stay at. Liked the kitchenette - efficiency unit. Basic breakfast - liked the added touch of egg omelet and raisin toast. For supper there is a Diner within walking distance. We prefer wired internet - which was available.

The one thing I didn't see mentioned in any of the more recent reviews of this establishment is a clear explanation that this is a Motel, i.e., the doors to the rooms open into the parking lot. With that said, it tries very hard to be a nice motel - the staff at the front desk was helpful/friendly, the building... More

We would readily stay there again. Friendly staff. Clean public space. Clean guest room. Comfortable bed. In room refrigerator, microwave. Nicely appointed. It is a motel with the rooms opening out to the parking lot, but safety was not a concern.

This was an overnight stay. The rooms were very clean and had everything you could ever need. Very impressed with the size of the bathrooms. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Included breakfast was excellent with anything you could want, both hot and cold selections, and very well laid out with plenty of room to maneuver without feeling cramped... More

Man at the counter acted like he didn't want anything to do with me. It was like 10 pm and he instantly pointed me down the road to the America's Best, saying it was cheaper and better and everything even after I was saying I prefer their place due to sentiment. There were only 2 cars in the parking lot.

I would first like to thank you for your review of your experience at our hotel. I am truly sorry we could not accommodate you on the night you wanted to stay. Portsmouth is a very busy place this time of year, and we highly recommend advance reservations. When we are full, we try to find travelers rooms wherever we... More

I was a little leery till I saw the inside of the room. Very comfortable beds and the bathroom though not large, was very convenient. Lots of surfaces to keep toiletries and plenty of fresh towels. Conveniently located between Maine and Massachusetts and an easy drive to nice restaurants

My husband and I visited Portsmouth, NH for 2 nights during this past winter for a purely recreational weekend. We have stayed at two other hotels in Portsmouth during previous trips and found this inn to be more than adequate. The room we had was upstairs in the Inn's main structure, right above the office. It was a corner, spacious,... More
