“Great location, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

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!!

Ashworth by the Sea is located on the Hampton Beach strip across the street from the beach. The hotel is divided into North and South towers with a sort of outside deck connecting the two on the outside and ramp connection into restaurant on the inside. Had a good time. Bar was nice, restaurant was good. Great view of the ocean. We had a room mix up, but they cleared it up and got us into a great room. Really great location.

Ashworth by the Sea is located on the Hampton Beach strip across the street from the beach. The hotel is divided into North and South towers with a sort of outside deck connecting the two on the outside and ramp connection into restaurant on the inside. We stayed in the North tower for two nights during the off-season.

Hotel had free valet parking. Hotel lobby is oddly shaped but well appointed. The front desk staff (make that most of the staff) appear to be quite young but did their jobs cheerfully. There is a pool somewhere in the hotel but we were not informed of it at check in. There is a full service restaurant with bar and a small coffee shop with access from inside and outside the hotel that serves breakfast and lunch. Both have limited menus-not a complaint just an observation. In the off season there isn't much else open on the HB strip.

The room had an ocean view. It was very clean with no signs of overuse, has a bathroom with a full tub/shower combination, flat screen TV with cable service, a slightly worn love seat and chair, and a tiny balcony unto which two people can squeeze themselves to sit and catch an ocean breeze. Our room had a king size bed which was comfortable. They provide 5 pillows which are slightly thin. You may need one or two more.

The walls are thin. You can hear the muffled (and sometimes not so muffled) conversations of the next door occupants. You can hear street noise however during full season I assume the air conditioner noises will block out both internal and external noise.

When there is a function you can hear the music / crowd noise in your room if you stay in the North Tower.

My biggest complaint is the sound from the toilets flushing. You CAN hear them sounding like mini jet engines taking off with every flush from every room in proximity to yours. On a slow night it is a minor irritant. On a busy night it is sometimes painful - woosh-woosh-woosh.

Rates at this hotel range up to $400. per night during the peak summer season.

Room Tip: As you face the hotel, rooms on the left are connected to the balcony between the north and south to...
