Ashworth by the Sea
Ranked #5 of 41 Hotels in Hampton
Reviewed May 14, 2007

Recently came back to New Hampshire to visit family during Mother's day. My brother said he had made reservations at the Ashworth by the Sea. When he told me this it made the hair on the back of my neck go up. Only thing I could remember was having my Junior Prom there and how bad the hotel was.

Upon arrival I immediately noticed the changes. The valet boys were well groomed and professional. The front desk was polite and friend but not that phony snubbish attitude you get at some beach resort hotels. But the biggest change I noticed was the decor of the hotel. It wasn't that "Seventies Something" any more. It was bright warm and inviting. I would call it Modern Seaside Cottage. Another words, no wicker hanging lamp insight.

I found out from one of the employees the hotel was recently purchased by a New Hampshire company and they sunk a lot of money into the renovations. It was nice to see a remodel where they saved a historic hotel instead of knocking it down and building new.

I was totally impressed! Hopefully the rest of Hampton Beach will take notice and do something about the neighboring hotels.

Oh, and as for one of the previous comments by another traveler.... I didn't find one hole in my walls or bugs anywhere. Also the price was right and didn't put a ding in my wallet like the prices 20 minutes away in Portsmouth.

I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone!

Excellent brunch last weekend, i could not believe the quality and the selection of items on the buffet! I guess they just have a breakfast buffet from this time of season on, but the eggs benedict, fruit and everything is worth every penny!
The dining area is exquisite. Hope to go back soon to experience more fantastic food!
