“The Sand Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

I loved this place ....I was with my girl friends, we were tired of walking around on the beach, looking for parking. This place has valet parking which was great. It is worth the money ! The Sand bar has live music ( check the restaurant website). The beach is across from the bar. You sit there, with your drinks, watch the sunset, listen to the live music, eat your dinner. It is a LOVELY experience. I have been to a few beaches myself but this was a great experience. My friends were visiting from Texas and they thought they were in heaven ! The breeze takes away all your worries. refreshes you. The bar is well kept, clean and I loved this place. I would go there again and again and again !

The location of the hotel is great, but we had a side room because the deal we received from Groupon.com (and I was aware of that so it was not a surprise or issue). But if I had paid peak rates I would not be pleased. The girls at the front desk were very pleasant. And the young man working as the valet was friendly and helpful. The meals we had at the restaurant were great as well as the coffee shop. The couple issues I had were that the decks are in need of TLC, I didn't sleep well even though the bed was very comfortable, I could hear everything through walls and floor above (we were on the first floor with at least one young child that was VERY active directly above us and other noises from a young in love couple nearby). I thought the room was very clean until we moved the sheets to go to sleep and noticed something overlooked on the bed skirt.

Room Tip: Ocean view from the front of the bldg is a must.

My husband and I along with another couple stayed April 13-14 at Ashworth by the Sea, our first time staying there. It was also our first time staying at Hampton Beach, and after researching on Trip Advisor (and once again the reviews were spot on), we chose this nice hotel. We wanted a place within walking distance to the attractions especially the Casino Ballroom since we had tickets to see the band America who were playing there that night (they were excellent!). The location is awesome, right across the street from the ocean, the staff is so friendly and efficient, and it's very clean. For lunch we had some appetizers in their Breakers restaurant and also ate dinner there that evening, and we had breakfast the next morning in the Wharfside Cafe, all very good. The wait staff were so friendly, and service was great.

Our room was clean, fairly small, and we got a good off-season rate, but the walls were thin where we could hear a lot of noise from others in surrounding rooms.

All in all, Ashworth was a great find, and we would not hesitate to stay there again the next time we are in the Hampton Beach area.

I stayed with a group of friends there last weekend and we had an absolute blast! From the guy who came out and drove my car to the parking place to the random employees I dealt with while there, they were all awesome!!! It was the off season, but you'd never know it. The place was sold out-packed and I couldn't possibly come up with a bad thing to say about the place! We stayed in the summer cottage. It was beautiful, well stocked, and super comfortable. I'd recommend anyone stay there. Whether you stay in the hotel or the cottage, you will have fun for sure. Super helpful employees all over to help you with whatever your needs may be!

This was our first time to Hampton Beach and we were there to enjoy a concert for the weekend. It was important that the room be right because there were 4 of us sharing and it was. We all loved it and the beach in the morning was beautiful and sunny and warm. Couldn't have asked for more. Everyone from the Valet boys to the front desk were very welcoming and eager to please.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and book the beach side with balcony. It is worth it.

Clean, bright, friendly. Its a bit pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for in this case. Right on the beach and a short walk to the Casino Ballroom. There are not many "nice" places to stay in Hampton Beach. The Ashworth is on that short list of nice places.

Room Tip: The corner rooms upstairs in the old section of the hotel are superb. Great views.

My wife and I got married right on the beach across the street from the Ashworth, and were lucky enough to stay at the Ashworth as well. The rooms themselves are clean and quite large. They are not fancy, but still a very nice environment. The reason that I gave this hotel five stars is that the staff was absolutely fabulous. Karen, who works at the front desk, worked with us prior to the wedding to give us tips on the best places to eat, the local justices of the peace, etc. She really went out of her way to help us. When we checked into the hotel, everything was ready for us. Even the weather cooperated and we were able to get married right on the beach, which was something that we really wanted, with our family and friends. Any question or concern that we had was completely taken care of.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean-front room!!
