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

The staff at this hotel is what makes this place special. They are very friendly and I was always greeted upon entering and leaving. The hotel itself is nothing special. Everything met my standards. With one exception, the bed, it is not very comfortable. I would recommend this hotel.

Best Choice Hotel brand in Portsmouth - although that's not saying much considering the other choices. The staff was very polite and helpful. The room was comfortable, clean, and spacious but dated. The breakfast was below average for Choice Hotels. The rate was reasonable. The fitness center needs newer, functioning equipment. Might stay here again if I was working in... More

Stayed here after seeing many strongly positive reviews on other websites. It was nothing special. Clean but older room, adequate exercise room and small outdoor pool. Free hot breakfast was limited and ended at 9 AM on weekend mornings. The room was fairly quiet. Convenient location for visiting the Portsmouth waterfront or Norfolk. The elevator was broken during our two... More
