“Wonderful getaway in Portsmouth”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

We stayed at the Hampton Inn for 3 nights. This is an affordable, well managed and comfortable hotel where the staff make all the difference. Rooms are spacious and clean with all the modern conveniences. Of note is the free shuttle (which we used on 4 different occasions), breakfast and happy hour from 4:30-7:00. The lobby/dinning area is very comfortable and welcoming. The hotel is well located, minutes from downtown Portsmouth and within walking distance of shopping. I highly recommend this hotel for value minded travellers who don't want to sacrifice quality and comfort.

Stayed at this wonderful Hampton Inn this past weekend, although it was crowded, the staff was excellent and friendly. Thank you Matt, Larry, Cathi and Diane -- excellent staff members who took great care of us and were SOOO Friendly. We will definately stay here again. The room like all the Hampton Inn's we have stayed at is clean, large and the bed and pillows -- outrageous! A great night sleep, quiet rooms and great parking. Thank you for a great stay!

Room Tip: Wine and snacks in the evening! Nice breakfast in the AM. I think all the rooms must be the same...

We stayed here only one night while on a long weekend trip in New England, but I was impressed. Hampton Inn has become my first choice of the reasonably priced chains. The Portsmouth hotel was right up there at the top of the Hampton Inns I have stayed at.
The location is a short drive from the downtown Portsmouth/historical area. The location itself is no big treat -- it is right next to a Christmas Tree shop in a nondescript strip-mall area...but, as I said, close to the desirable areas.
The difference I found here was a great attention to detail...the place seemed new, very prettily decorated. The beds: so comfy and clean, the pool: better than the average econo-pool; the employees: friendly and helpful and as always, lots of little things like outlets where you need them to charge your phone/iPad, free wifi, nice TV, they were even kind enough to supply some feminine hygiene products (ooops! surprise!) when I asked at the front desk. The breakfast was fine...as it always is. I highly recommend this Hampton Inn, and we paid well under $100 for the night, with some Hilton Honors points.

Located in the industrial park/shopping center side of town, this hotel provides a great value when traveling for business or out shopping with friends. The staff is efficient and friendly, the room was quiet and clean.

My family and I come here every year and I come with my husband. We always enjoy our stay. They have great breakfast items and much to choose from. The rooms are newly renovated and the beds are comfortable. Bathrooms are big and clean. Check in and check out are easy and it is within walking distance to a bunch of downtown Portsmouth stores. They have a hot tub, big enough for 4 to sit comfortably and their pool is fairly large, but is only 5 ft deep. They do have disability swings to help disable people into both the pool and hot tub which I thought was amazing. I do have to say that the pool room definitely needs to be renovated. There are brown rust/heating stains on the bottom and sides of the pool.

I have been traveling to Portsmouth from Richmond, VA for the last 12 weeks, Monday through Thursday. My first 6 weeks I stayed here. This hotel provides great value - free parking, free drinks/food from 4:30 to 6:30 on weekdays, as well as free breakfast. The hotel is quiet for the most part and has free internet. The staff is also very friendly and remembered me when I checked in on Mondays after the first couple of stays.

This was our second stay at this property. We stayed with family for a special event. We were greeted promptly, the service was courteous, the room was clean and attractive, everything worked fine, the internet was excellent. There is a 'happy hour' in the lobby with drinks and nachos from 4-6. I liked that. It was nice to join a friend there for a little while. Wake up call worked fine. Plenty of outlets. Honestly, it was convenient and pleasant. So, was there a negative? Well, maybe two tiny things. The internet in the lobby is literally in an alcove where the chairs infringed on the lobby hallway, so if you want to browse or check Facebook down there, you will do it with others' ability to look over your shoulder as they walk by to the elevator. Exercise room was tiny, but OK for the facility. Would I go again. Definitely. It was convenient and comfortable.

Room Tip: Perhaps away from the elevator. But not a big deal.
