Ashworth by the Sea
Ranked #5 of 41 Hotels in Hampton
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

First time I've stayed here. Only stayed for a weekend, but would certainly return. Great location right at the end of the boardwalk so there isn't to much noise, but you are still near all the fun. The staff is incredibly friendly and the valet parking is so convenient. Only disappointment was that the shower and shower curtain was a bit dirty when I first got here. Other than that, the rooms were small, but had comfortable beds! I recommend this hotel.

Dear Sydhannah26,

Thank you for taking the time to provide a positive review of our hotel. We know that our guests have many choices when deciding on a vacation experience and we are grateful that you chose the Ashworth. Thank you for bringing the shower curtain issue to our attention. It was corrected immediately and more stringent inspection efforts have been put into place to ensure the high cleaning standards that our housekeeping management typically provide.

We hope to see you again in the future,

Best Regards,

I found Ashworth by the Sea in a fairly last minute search for a middle point between myself in Massachusetts and a very close friend in Maine. Even with the rainy New England weather, the room and view were beautiful enough to make us stay for longer than planned (which we did, by asking for a late checkout : ) of which they were nice enough to accommodate our yet again, last minute request. The restaurant downstairs had great food & drinks which we enjoyed after our late checkout. Ocean view was breathtaking, overlooking the beach with the beautiful statue guarding the shore directly in front of us. Couldn't ask for a nicer stay, unless it was longer!

Let me start by saying that the staff here is amazing the Valet's Jordan, Robert and Austin were so helpful and really took care of us, even going so far as to unload my car bring everything up to the room and unloading it for us in the hotel room ( and without our husbands this was extremely helpful). The girls at the front desk were so nice and very helpful even letting us check in a little early. I had stayed at Hampden Beach before and been so disappointed with the hotel so the Ashworth was a breath of fresh air. We had a beautiful ocean view and balcony that was more then comfortable. I have seen complaints about the rooms being small but there was two adults and two children and we were fine (how much time do you really spend in your room on vacation anyway?) The room was very clean and came with a fridge which was nice having children with us.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a beach view it is worth it especially at night to hear the ocean waves and see all the e...

The hotel is clean and the personnel is friendly. Very good location right on the beach. The room was clean and of average size, but the balcony is so small you can't even sit on it. The restaurant is very good, but that is not included in the room price. Overall at $125 per night it would have been a great place to stay, but at $250 per night it is way overpriced.

We had not been to Hampton Beach in years but got a great Groupon deal so scheduled a two night stay the end of June. We arrived around 3pm and they were able to provide us a room right away. It is valet parking only so be aware. Our check in was fast and efficient. Our room was great – it was on the street corner side and had an awesome view of the ocean. Our deck was one of the newer ones, it had the new see-thru plexiglass wraparound so one could sit and see out which is a huge plus. The room was small but adequate, new large HDTV, free Wi-Fi included and very clean. We had no issues with noise but could tell the walls were rather thin. They have a small heated indoor pool which we used and enjoyed. There is also an outside bar and deck on the same level as the pool. It was quite lively they day we first arrived but the next day it was closed because the bartender called in sick we were told (huh? Only one bartender?) Overall the staff was very friendly and accommodating with all our questions and offered good suggestions. It is a great location – close to shops, beach, rides, restaurants (couple on site), and more. (The only negative was we had accidently left a brand new Hampton Beach T-shirt on the bed while packing when we left. I called the next morning to ask if Housekeeping had turned it in and unfortunately they did not…..) Definitely enjoyed our stay and would love to stay again. We would request similar room accommodations with a great view, newer see-thru deck, would not like an inside room, etc. Hoping for another Groupon deal for next year, could not pay their normal high rates.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the newer see-thru decks and a view!

Had driven by it many times, never had stayed because of high rates. Got a great Groupon for $89/night, and stayed 3 nights, and used it in June 2013. We LOVED IT!! Very clean room, nice water view, and very good restaurants for both dinner and breakfast. Super nice roof-deck bar, overlooking the beach too!! We had a small blip in service (valet service), and the hotel (without me even asking) gave me a $20 dinner credit, and erased my mandatory daily parking fee - very classy and super appreciated!! Went back July 2013 for a concert @ the Casino, and wanted to stay there again, but rates were too high. Hoping to see the Groupon again.........please??!!!!

There aren't many options at Hampton that are right on the main strip in front of the beach. This is probably the best you can expect. The room was fairly clean except for the moldy shower curtain. I would expect that they could replace a $3 shower curtain given the $250/night rate (parking - valet only - is another $10/night). The hotel is very loud, both inside and out. We could hear the entire conversation of the family in the room next door. We could also hear the toilet flushing in the adjacent room (even with the bathroom door closed). The outside noise doesn't bother me, we stayed at this location to be close to the action. If I had paid $100/night, I would increase my rating but for $250, I expect luxury accommodations and this was FAR from that. Comparable to a Best Western. The bed was also uncomfortable and the pillows felt like they were made out of cardboard.

Dear Park Traveler,

We truly appreciate your feedback regarding your recent stay. I do want to personally apologize for the less than perfect standards that you experienced. I have discussed your comments about the shower curtain and pillows with our Housekeeping Manager and assure you that these items have been addressed.

As Hampton Beachs' only full service hotel, we are open year round and hope that you will choose us again in the future.
