Glad we only stayed one night. We had a non smoking room and lying on the floor behind the night stand was a partially burnt cigarette, I added a picture.The microwave and windowsill were very dusty. There was a bad hard water smell in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and the bath towels were nice. Front desk and breakfast... More

This hotel is very tired indeed and in need of modernisation. The reception desk has sticky tape on the laminate to hold it in place. The furniture in the lobby is dirty. Having said that, the lady on duty was friendly and helpful. The room itself, a non smoking double, was large and cool and had a fridge, micro wave,... More

I stopped in to vist a friend and found the comfort inn due to it's location to my friends house. The comfort in is for the most part clean but a bit dated. It's location is great for visiting Old Town Portsmouth.

This hotel has friendly staff with comfortable beds. It has a nice small pool. They offered a nice continental breakfast. It was perfect for our needs. There are many places to eat in close proximity. We only stayed for one night on a quick turn around for business. I would stay again.

Rooms were clean and quiet. The beds were extremely comfortable too. Front desk was polite and quick. The pool was nice. All was good. The price was average. I would recommend this hotel to any middle class. Rich people will not be impressed.

I stayed in this hotel with my daughter on a recent visit to the USA from the UK, the room was very clean and the family who ran it were brilliant. Breakfast was adequate for us although some visitors may find it inadequate. The hotel is located on the edge of the old town and is well worth a visit

My fiancée and I stayed here for a total of three weeks commencing on January 3, 2014 while she was doing job training across the street. I was actually born just across the river in Norfolk, so the area is not unfamiliar to me. The staff was exceptional in general, while the building and the rooms have some wear and... More

I really enjoyed concluding that this motel was run by a family that worked hard to provide good service. I have no complaints regarding this place. It strikes me, however, as being "centrally located" rather than near anything but a hospital located down the street.

I stayed at this hotel while visiting family in the area. It's pretty quiet which is nice. The rooms are dated and worn, but the staff does seem to try hard to keep them clean. The bed was better than you'd expect given the overall quality of the property. The breakfast is very basic, very few options and nothing fresh... More
