Very nice accommodations and friendly service. However, we were told no pets had been on our floor in a very long time. We were awakened the next morning by loud, incessant barking that came from a room across the hall from our room and persisted for 45 minutes. The dog continued barking as we departed the hotel (earlier than planned).

Thank you for staying with us. I'm so sorry your visit was disturbed by a barking dog. We are a pet friendly hotel, but the pets are not to be left unattended at any time. Leaving a pet alone in a hotel room, especially on a holiday weekend, can be very frightful for a pet and is very cruel. Thank... More

Why stay here, when super 8 is cheaper and cleaner. Last time we stayed here it was nothing to wright home about, room was just OK,pool had a strong smell, and beds were OK. Not a bad motel, but for my money it is the 8.

We stayed here this past weekend, and loved it. The room was clean and spacious. The staff at the front desk was extremely friendly. We ordered room service, and the food was good and came on time. This hotel offers a military discount as well. This is definitely our favorite in Portsmouth!

Stayed here in 2008. Under new management and you can still see remnants of the old if you look carefully, it is clear that renovations have much improved this property. The rooms and bathrooms are clearly updated and clean. The pool area was vastly improved. The bar area looked nice and I didn't have a chance to dine in, but... More

I love the location. It's old, but they seem to make an effort to keep it clean and updated. Three complaints essentially. Rick, who "welcomed" us should NOT be working with people. He really put a damper on the trip. To say that he is rude would be an understatement. Truly, he should not be working with the public; he... More

Not many good things to say about this hotel. It's in a great location to visit Shawnee State University, just across the street. The front desk staff was friendly. We felt that it was overpriced at $139 a night, no breakfast included. The room had been renovated but old items remained. The mini fridge looked to be about 25 years... More

It is very sad that we let you down. I do apologize you found so many things wrong with your stay. Our hotel rooms are inspected daily by a supervisor and I will personally check into the conditions you encountered. We are in a great location for people visiting the University and I do hope you try us again. Thank... More

Stayed here for one night as part of a business trip to the area. Easy check in, only one lift so slow. Room is clean and tidy, bed was comfortable. Bathroom a let small but everything worked well. Bar area is good and service was prompt. Did not use any other facilities so cannot comment. Would stay here again.

Thank you so much for the nice review. I wish we had two elevators, it would be more pleasant. The elevator is programmed to close in 8 seconds, to allow our Guest with special needs to board safety. Your comments are greatly appreciated and I look forward to you visiting again. More

We spent several nights here and it is a great downtown hotel. The rooms were perfect as was the staff. We would return here again. If you're looking for a quaint small town that's interesting, then visit Portsmouth and stay here.
