Staff was very friendly but the hotel was old and outdated. There were rips in the carpet in an upstairs hallway, only one elevator which took forever so we always took the stairs and tiny bathroom. We used points but would not pay $ for this one. Will look downtown next time farther in advance.

Typical Courtyard experience. The hotel was clean, room was average. I am a "Silver" level with Marriott rewards, but was not treated any differently than an average customer. I do NOT recommend the onsite restaurant (see my other review) and was disappointed that the hotel manager did not contact me after I informed the front desk of my restaurant experience.... More

Stayed here 2 nights for business trip. Hotel is clean, nice, and a typical Courtyard hotel. Rooms clean, comfortable. Indoor pool, workout room. Cafe and bar in lobby. Serve Starbucks coffee. Not really walking distance to historic area, but hotel does offer a free shuttle service on demand. Just ask the front desk about scheduling your rides, and they'll take... More

Great hotel right off of I-95 - very convenient to both Maine and Downtown Portsmouth. Room was big enough for 5 (housekeeping brought us the extra bed right away). Front desk staff was awesome (wish I could remember this young woman's name that helped us with great suggestions for breakfast and beaches). This is and ideal hotel if you need... More

My daughters and I stayed for several days at the Courtyard by Marriott Portsmouth. The one bedroom suite was convenient for all of us and the suite came with a little kitchen and the amenities to go with it. The suite and bathroom were a little dated but very clean. The location was great for walking to the restaurants and... More

The two standout features of this hotel were the delightful front desk reception we received and Stan the shuttle driver. They made our stay! They were informative and cheerful and couldn't do enough to ensure our comfort. The front line staff at more expensive establishments, including marriott's premier hotels, could learn a lot from them. The room was standard for... More

I am impressed by the Honesty and Integrity exhibited by Mary, Head of House Keeping and her staff. We stayed there the night of June 20, 2015 and then proceeded on our tour of Newfoundland and Labrador. It was some days before I realized that I had misplaced/lost by small digital point-and-shoot camera. Almost a month later, on our homeward-bound... More

My good friend and I booked a room a bit reluctantly at the Courtyard Marriott for a 'girls getaway'. We wanted to be centrally located, but there were no rooms available at downtown hotels. We're so lucky we found the Courtyard, which is 1 1/2 miles from downtown! It was pleasant and agreeable, staffed by warm, friendly, competent staff. Our... More

Is it Le Bristol of Paris or the Peninsula of Chicago: no, but you readers should know that already. It is a good but slightly tired Courtyard that has what you should expect: a clean room, pleasant service and air conditioning that works. Also, they have a frequently running shuttle that takes you into downtown Portmouth free of charge. This... More

Good choice for downtown activities. The free shuttle was reliable and meant no need to find and pay for parking, which is at a premium in Portsmouth. All other hotel parking downtown is valet or self park, both which will set you back an add'l 20 spot or more. Room rates are significantly higher as well. This hotel met my... More
