Howard Johnson Portsmouth
Ranked #11 of 17 Hotels in Portsmouth
Reviewed February 19, 2011

The hotel is conveniently located off I-95. We stayed one night and found the staff to be friendly and the room to be spacious and clean. A free continental breakfast was included which made this an exceptional value for the price.

We have stayed here a number of times. Rates are decent and rooms are clean. It's a basic accommodation for travelers seeking an overnight stay along the way. Its location is handy to I-95. There are a number of restaurants withing a few miles. They offer a continental breakfast.

We used the coupon from the "Room Saver" book (available free at most fast food places and coffee shops) and got an excellent rate at this hotel, in fact almost half the rate of the Holiday Inn across the street. . The gentleman at the desk was most helpful and welcoming. The room was adequate, clean and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was perfectly fine and the place is conveniently located for all travelers in the area. I would recommend this hotel and the 'just baked' choclate chip cookies!

We stayed 2 nights here, and while I feel they tried their best. It wouldn't be somewhere I would recommend and would say spend a bit more money to go more central. When we arrived they said they'd over booked on king rooms and asked if we would take a twin instead. When they wouldn't budge on price if we did, we stuck to our guns. Ironically after doing this our TV didn't work and as it was a weekend they don't have maintenance to fix it. The front desk tried their best, but it wasn't a quick fix. Anyway a TV wasn't hugely important so we didn't kick up a fuss. The breakfast was good, with lot's of choice on muffins and pastries. I would only recommend to management reading this that this hotel needs some sprucing up as it really isn't terrible.

The only good thing about this hotel is it's location directly off the interstate and easy to get back on after a terrible nights sleep. The room was not clean, the hall noise was incredible and the bed felt like a rock! If I had not gotten an incredible rate from Orbitz I would have rated it all Terrible.

We stayed at this hotel for one night on our way through to Boston. The hotel is conveniently located off the I95 and close to the Portsmouth shopping center, TJ Maxx and Marshalls. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the staff were very friendly and they have free wireless internet. The accomodations are basic but more than adequate if you aren't looking to spend a fortune. They even offered free chocolate chip cookies to guests at the front desk in the evening. Check in went well and the staff were very helpful. The free continental breakfast is basic fare but adequate. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you were looking for somewhere to stay 1-2 nights while shopping in the area or passing through.
