“nice and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

NIce and clean a bit over priced but was the cheapest around that area. rooms were clean and of reasonable size. didn't do the breakfast thing as there was not enough space to swing a cat in the breakfast room. Close to everything we needed.

We stayed one night on a recent overnight to Portsmouth. This hotel is not on the ocean or in historic Portsmouth but the location is very convenient to both. From the outside the place looks old and worn. Inside could use some updating. Rooms were clean and comfortable, though they were very dated. The bed and pillows were super comfy! Staff was friendly and efficient. Pricing was ok, but we were there on a Saturday during peak season so I consider that reasonable.

I decided to book this hotel for a night at the last minute as we were enroute to another place. Pricing for a comfort inn seemed steep- but apparently this was peak season and we literally got the last room. The room was decent but then they gave us a room with 1 queen bed after promising one with 2 queen /twin beds. The breakfast buffet was pretty good. But their fitness room needs to be renovated before it causes some serious issues.

We arrived on a rainy night and the first thing we noticed was that major construction was taking place in front of the hotel. It looked like several new buildings were going up. We found the hotel's entrance on the side and quickly entered the hotel. The front desk was friendly and we saw the breakfast room included two room as we checked in. We were happy with our spacious room that was appointed with colonial style furniture. We saw the past guests had abused the sofa and desk chair because they obviously sat down in wet bathing suits and left stains. The sofa was also pretty dirty. Other than those abuses, we found the room clean and the bed unbelievably comfortable. Our room had a microwave and fridge hidden in the console where a flat-screened TV sat. The shower was great for me, although I'm only 5' 4", so my husband, who is almost 6' had trouble. We noticed in the morning when we drew the curtains back that construction workers were busy outside but we never heard them working. Great windows! Breakfast was the typical Comfort Inn fare, which is not a complaint. Some of the guests should have better etiquette and put shoes on their feet and clothes on their bodies before they show up for breakfast. Pajamas and bare feet are not appetizing for breakfast. Perhaps a little sign like: please wear shoes and street clothes, would be nice. But that aside, this hotel was a good choice. It is not right off the highway, and instead you have to wind into town a bit, and then it's a short drive to the city center. We didn't have a problem with that at all. If we're in Portsmouth again, we will stay here.

Our second stay at this Inn. We were very impressed the first time around and have no reason to change our mind. The bed was still the softest I've ever encountered and I still didn't like that but it was clean and fresh and a lot of people might find 'soft' to be perfect.

The area around the Inn is being built up and that is a good sign. It is about 10 minutes from downtown Portsmouth making it very handy. Staff were pleasant, room was spotless, corridors were spotless, extra towels in closet along with extra pillows.

Again we didn't use the breakfast or the pool but if they are as good as the rest of the Inn then...

A fine place to stay.

Room Tip: We were on the 5th floor and it was nice and quiet.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the beds are pillow top, which I find very comfy. The TV'S are flat screen with a good selection of cable channels and they also have a micro-wave and small fridge in the rooms. The shower was good altho if your more than say 6' 5" you would have a hard time fitting in the shower from the way it is designed. The price is good for what you get in service and amenities. It is located about a mile to mile and a half off of I-95 and is close to most of the happenings of the Portsmouth area.They offer a decent breakfast too.
