Elevator is probably biggest issue. 1 elevator. We ended up taking the stairs when we could because it was much faster. Young girl working the front desk during the day n Thursday July 21st was very nice and very helpful. Not so much the case for the other lady who was working the very early morning (around 5:30 am) on... 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.

As another reviewer stated, the Front Desk employees couldn't have been nicer, BUT THE HOTEL IS OLD, TIRED, IN A GENERAL STATE OF DISREPAIR, AND NOT PARTICULARLY CLEAN. To be specific: In my room there was an easy chair with ripped upholstery (the seat was actually shredded with stuffing popping out), the wall paper was peeling off the wall under... More

Decided to stay here since I'm a HI member, and I figured I might as well get the points. Bad Move. Hotel is dated, rooms are musty, bed sheets where rough (from excessive wear and tear) and NO free breakfast!! Only 1 tiny elevator for 5 story building, made it almost impossible to utilize. Keep driving, you'll find better options.

Bullet2012, Thank you for taking the time for provide your feedback. Your concerns are heard and I will make sure to pass them on to ownership. As for the continental breakfast, due to us being a Holiday Inn, not a Holiday Inn Express, we have a full service restaurant. There are breakfast packages that you can choose at booking. More

The Holiday Inn in Portsmouth, NH is an excellent example of the best of Holiday Inns. From check in – with fresh cookies in the lobby and the friendly staff greeting and thank you to Priority Club members (they know the importance of maintaining loyalty!) to comfortable, clean rooms – and, very important, clean bathrooms -- at a mid-price cost,...

Sorry, but while the hotel staff was very nice, this hotel was extremely overpriced for what it delivered. We would not stay here again, at least at the prices we paid, which was about double of what I would have expected. The hotel needs works and you can tell it's is starting to age. Which isn't an issue if maintenance... More

We recently stayed in Portsmouth at the Holiday Inn. It is an older facility that could you use some updating in the rooms and lobby. The front reception staff was very friendly and check in was very quick. The lounge is tucked away in the lower level and not easy to get to for drinks. It should be on the... More

We stayed in the suite as part of an awards gift. It was fabulously nice and very quiet. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Check in and out is very easy in keeping with IHG values.
