Ashworth by the Sea
Ranked #5 of 41 Hotels in Hampton
Reviewed January 9, 2014

This hotel is the only major hotel @ Hampton Beach. Changes in policies over the past few years have upset many customers. The DJ has been at the Ashworth for over 22 years. Management is unpredictable changing policies and entertainment without notice to customers. Some improvements have been made to the interior and presently new balconies are being added. The Valet Parking policies have a lot to be desired.Check your car before you leave if you are valet parking. The food for a one of a kind hotel in Hampton has a lot to be desired. Overall a place to go without traveling. No competition in the area makes it the only place to go for a well placed hotel. Have a question??? Ask three staff people the same question and choose the answer that fits your circumstances. All in all an average hotel. Management is aware of the captured customers. Enjoy the beach and the view.

Room Tip: ocean front if your wallet will allow you to enjoy such a luxury. overpriced any time of the year. c...

Stayed there the weekend before New Years. The view from the oceanfront rooms is outstanding. It was quiet, and peaceful; a first class operation. Staff was extremely friendly; room was spotless and spacious. Breakfast at the 'Wharfside' was fine, but nothing exceptional. Will likely return next year.

Room Tip: Can't beat the oceanfront kings!

I am reviewing The Ashworth By The Sea vs. other Hampton Beach hotels. Over the years I have stayed at other hotels at Hampton Beach and the Ashworth is, by far, the best around. I travel extensively and usually stay at Marriott's and Residence Inns so I am used to nice hotels. After reading some of the negative reviews, I was concerned mainly about the size of the room. We stayed in a king room on the side, the standard room. We saw the ocean just fine from inside the room, we did. Ot have to go on the balcony. The room was not small, in fact quite roomy. There is a sofa and armchair, table, small desk and dresser - nicer than many other hotels anywhere. The bathroom is a little small but classy and well furnished. The food at Breakers is excellent, we had the salmon and steak dinners. Breakfast was very good too. We used a coupon from Travelzoo for two nights in Dec. 2013. Some negative reviews stated that people with coupons got worse treatment. I did not feel that at all. Yes, the Ashworth is dated in some ways but that is the charm of Hampton Beach. Nothing is modern. But the Ashworth is the best in Hampton Beach. If I plan another get-a-way to Hampton Beach, I will definitely stay at the Ashworth.

Room Tip: Room 167 is a standard king room on the side. Great view of the water. No complaints at all.

When I was growing up the Ashworth was that fancy hotel at the end of the stores at Hampton Beach. I am now so thrilled to actually be able to be staying there. The rooms are very nice, the fish and chips in the restaurant was excellent. Staying there in the winter means no traffic and wonderful (though) cold walks on the beach. We keep finding great deals to stay there and yes, we are returning again in December. Can't wait.

Room Tip: No matter where we stay we like to get a room so that we can also keep an eye on our car. That mean...

The hotel itself is a great place to stay. The rooms are pleasantly decorated, have nice balconies, and comfortable feel to it. The woman who cleaned our room could not have been any sweeter. The pool temperature is the best I have ever felt. So warm! The location of the hotel is also fantastic. We ate at the restaurant and did not have a good experience. They are known for a great fish and chip but that night they had run out of that and the other popular fish meal on the menu. Our waitress was overmatched and instead of the hostess or manager assisting, all she did was give her verbal reminders. The dj and dance floor, they offer is a fantastic touch.

My husband and I used a Groupon to stay at the Ashworth for two nights Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving as a get away treat to ourselves. The reception desk, the cleaning staff, the restaurant and lounge staff were all wonderful and we were treated very nicely. The room was very clean. We went for a cold walk along the beach and a trip to Strawberry Bank in Portsmouth but otherwise we stayed in the hotel and enjoyed the amenities- the heated, steamy indoor pool, the restaurant and the unexpected added bonus of a DJ and dancing both nights with quite a lively crowd of people.
