The location of this hotel is great, however, there were several issues that needed to be addressed. The rooms were comfortable, although the bathrooms were extremely small. The shower curtain, when pulled across the tub, actually touched the toilet. The mattress pad, which was simply a felt-like sheet, did not fit the king sized bed so there were bunches under... More

We spent a few days at this Holiday Inn. The room was clean and well maintained. It was convenient to all areas we had/ wanted to be. It was near the Portsmouth Traffic Cicle. Easy drive to downtown and up to Maine. The staff were very helpful. Sam (Samantha) was especially helpful to my husband with the multitude of questions... More

As usual, we stopped in on our way up to Desert Island, Maine. There are a few hotels right together but we like Holiday Inn and the service and friendly atmosphere. This time the bar was open (last year it was closed for renovations) and we had some nightcaps after walking into town for dinner. The only problem was right... More

Very disappointed with our stay this time, feel totally taken advantage of. After driving all day to take my daughter back to UNH, we arrived in Portsmouth around 8 in the evening. The room was clean but average, the bathroom minuscule. Room service added a 25% gratuity automatically after paying $200 USD/ night for the room. Total rip off Won't... More

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.

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.
