KUDOS to Don!!! He was very friendly, helpful and accomodating. He even stayed after his shift was done to personally carry a refrigerator to our room - much appreciated.
Thanks for a great visit!

We've been staying at this location once a month for several years. The staff is wonderful, the rooms clean and comfortable and the location is great. This is always our first stop when we come to Portsmouth!!

Hotel staff took my fiances belongings and hid them from him because he did not answer them in a "timley manner" regarding a check out date. This facility must be shut down!

We were on vacation visiting the New Hampshire and Maine area and we did not spend much time in our room.
All the staff there was pleasant. When we arrived to check in there were fresh baked cookies for us to enjoy.
When we asked questions about the area, Mike Gallo was very happy to share his knowledge with us. He suggested places to eat and what route to drive so we got to experience the scenic view to arrive at our destinations. The evergreen rooms were adequate for our purposes. They were clean which was important to me.
The only thing I would have like to see improve was more variety at the continental breakfast and a comfortable chair or small couch to sit on to read or to enjoy a cup of coffee.
I would recommend this hotel to my friends.

My wife and I had a wedding to attend in Portsmouth on July 1, 2006, and in searching for a hotel on-line, came up with America's Best Inns in Portland, NH. We stayed two nights, and were quite pleased. The hotel staff were exceptionally helpful, the room was small, but clean (I believe it had recently been remodeled), and the bed was comfortable. The complimentary continental breakfast was basic, but good - coffee was available 24/7! Location was good (NOT downtown as we thought when we made reservations). It is very convenient to I-95. All-in-all, it was a very good value for the money (probably half the price or less of other motels), and we would stay there again.

I went in last winter (Jan 2005) planning to book rooms here for my wedding in June 2006. My fiance and I decided to stay here while visting my parents in March 2006. We were told that the hotel was going to be updated in spring of 2005. Obviously that did not happen. The rugs were disgusting, curtains had moth holes all in them, the walls had stains and food crusted on them, there was hair in the bathroom. The girl who checked us in late that night had ZERO personality and could hardly answer our questions and almost seemed bothered by us. The breakfast was not very good. Coffee was cold and danishes were stale. I will not be booking my wedding block here nor will I ever set foot in Anerica's "Best" Inn again.
