We booked a room at this hotel over a year in advance for a cycling event. Our booking price was less than $60 with tax. However, when we checked in, the amount charged to us was more than double ($139.06) what we booked at. We would have never booked this place for that price. The overcharge was bad enough but...

I stay here occasionally due to thats were my work puts us. It is an "old" but clean place. Location is close to all the local stuff. The staff is always very nice! Forget their claim of free internet/wifi. It barely works if you're in the 1st two rooms closest to the lobby. 3 rooms or further away & forget... More

Found a few roaches in the bathroom, carpets weren't clean and looked as if they hadn't been cleaned in months, although the lady up front was nice, it wasn't a good experience at all! No internet, half the lights in the room worked and half didn't, and then they knocked on the door when the do not disturb sign was... More

clean old motel but no internet for the 2 nights we stayed there. we called the desk twice about the internet and they couldn't do anything about it. (they advertise free internet) I don't think they have internet anymore if you notice the dates of the previous reviews, they must have gone off the grid in july 2014.

Despite the old horrible reviews on TripAdvisor, in May of 2014 the Ameristay Hotel in Portsmouth was OK. The desk clerk at the filled-up Comfort Inn recommended it over the nearby Motel 8 because of the reports he'd heard from customers. Ameristay Portsmouth is an old but clean motel that now caters to budget customers and weekly renters. Don't expect... More

Was working in the area for a few weeks so this is where the company placed our group. Each Sunday upon check in the clerk was very rude and short spoken. There is a vacant lot behind building that would be convenient for guest if they would pave it and make a parking lot for the guest staying in the... More

The room was okay, but it would have been nice to have some extra blankets. The room had no heat on when I got there. It was below freezing outside and inside. I turned the heat on full blast and the room never heated up all night. After 11 hours it still hadn't heated up. The facets in the bathroom... More

This hotel deserves to be given a 3.5- to-4-star rating. We stayed the night of May 12, 2012, when it was packed with guests, and we were favorably impressed. Four years ago, Ameristay acquired this older hotel, scrubbed it clean, and refurbished it. Our room was spotless and smelled fresh. The problems cited in old reviews were not present. Front...

Be cautious about staying here. They do have bed bugs which is no surprise with the way that place looks. You don't want to take these little critters home! The place is so old an run down also. The price is too high for the crap u get. This place needs to be torn down! Most the staff is quite... More

Last time we were in Portmouth we stayed at the Holiday Inn on 2nd street, it was under construction so this time we stayed at the Ameristay. Upon arrival i felt this was a bad idea. The fact that it was an outdoor entrance for the room, i could not sleep a wink all night. They gave a discount for... More
