We chose this hotel because it was right next door to the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom, and we were seeing a concert there. Well, right off we noticed there was no parking at the hotel. I don't know if all of the hotels there are like this, but we had to park 2 blocks away in a dirt municipal parking lot (which was free because we were staying there), and carry all of our stuff. They could do with some valet parking, and someone would make a mint doing it. I would have paid someone to follow us over and load up our stuff. Then when we got to the hotel, there was no elevator. The stairs were creaky, and narrow and DARK. No lobby to speak of. Just a little desk in a corner right next to some rooms, which luckily we didn't have to stay in one of them. The noise of people checking in and out. Our room was UP ANOTHER FLIGHT OF STAIRS. Our room was so little, there wouldn't have been a place to put our suitcases, except there was another room thru a doorway with a couch and luckily, another air conditioner, since it was near 90 that day. It was nice to have all of that room. Tiny bathroom. You can tell this hotel was built many, many years ago, before elevators were the norm, and this bathrooom was obviously added in later years. But...very clean and neat. Nice towels. Quiet. Even with a bar on the ground floor, we never heard anything all night., with the exception of someone dumping lots of glass in the dumpster with a crash periodically. Right across from the beach, within walking distance of all the arcades and the bandshell, which has great bands for free every night. Fireworks on Wednesday night. The beach was wonderful. But the hotel...well....
