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

My fiance and I checked into this hotel after a long day in Norfolk. The hotel is in a poorer section of Portsmouth, with a lot of activity going on at 11pm on a Sunday. Parking was ample, luggage cart ancient, and check in quick. The front desk attendant was friendly, and the lobby was standard, not bad just not... More

Its in an historic district of Portsmouth with lots of old churches and buildings close by. Hotel was clean and staff was friendly. Double beds were small but comfortable enough. Pillows left a little to be desired. Small 25" "box" style tv in room. Pool was clean and fitness room was adequate. 2 gas stations, Pizza Hut, Mcdonalds, Churchs Fried... More
