We stayed at this property for two nights for a family reunion in Portsmouth. It was conveniently located by the highway, but also a quick drive or safe/easy bike ride to downtown Portsmouth. It is not a fancy place--quite basic per this chain--but on the whole the experience fine. We were there at the high season, and the prices here,... More

I'm a Spire Elite IHG member so when my family and I came to Portsmouth we stayed at this hotel. First, the staff at the desk and the maintenance people were friendly. The parking is convenient; right out front. There were always luggage carts available and we were provided with a crib upon asking. The beds were comfortable and the... More

I am a frequent traveler (mainly for business) and this is the worst Holiday Inn I've stayed in. The *only* one where breakfast wasn't included for a business traveler. Inexcusable. And when I brought my displeasure to the front desk upon discovery, I asked to speak with the GM about this policy. I never did hear from GM or any... More

This Holiday Inn is a typically nice Holiday Inn. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The pub was cozy, comfortable and the food was good. Service was efficient even with only one waitress. Our room was very clean. One puzzling thing was an easy chair that was in disrepair. It had a faux leather seat which was torn in... More

Our family of three stayed here for one night while on a driving trip. We generally prefer Holiday Inn Express over Holiday Inn on trips like these since breakfast is included, plus we just don't require conference rooms or other business related services. Our room was fine, although the bathroom was remarkably small. Breakfast was not included, so we ate... More

We travel to Maine every year, flying into Boston for better flights and driving north. This is the second one stay we've booked as we love the location: far enough north from Boston and right across the bridge to Kittery Maine. I find great rates here at an easy on/off location form I-95. The hotel is clean and maintained. It... More

I was at this location a few years ago, and stayed there twice in the last two weeks and can attest that they've recently renovated and it's much improved. Great service, clean rooms and located very close to the interstate.
