Holiday Inn Portsmouth

Reviewed December 9, 2012

One night stay 12/8/12 with a good rate from travelocity. Nothing bad here, just didn't really wow me.
We were in room 430 which was adjacent to the stairwell and consequently a little noisy. Although it was a non-smoking floor, the smell of cigarette smoke lingered constantly in the hallway and even in our room a little.
Room was pretty clean, but some soap scum in shower.
Bed was pretty soft and my fella's back was killing him today.
It's a fine place to stay for a night or two, but didn't love it.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms at the ends of the hallways adjacent to the stairwells.

The hotel is located next to 4 other hotels right on US1 just north of the city. There is a "upscale" diner next to the property. The room we stayed in was on the 5th floor and had a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The bathroom was adequate and a minimal size. The lobby was relatively large and inviting to sit in. The only hassle we had was with only one elevator slowing things down. Many guests were taking the stairs to the second floor rooms.

Room Tip: If you don't need an elevator, get a floor on the second floor.

I attended Anthocon last weekend at this hotel, and had a good time. The hotel staff was helpful and friendly. The conference rooms were set up well, clean and well-maintained.

I enjoyed the Saturday night dinner the hotel catered.

Next year I won't bother driving home, I'll just stay at the hotel.

When first checking in after a long ride, no one was at the desk for about 15 minutes. Once someone finally showed up, we were given our keys and headed up to our room. Very thin walls and able to hear the thirty year olds partying in the room next door. Vending machines on floors 2 and 4 were out of many things. Easy checkout in the morning and a short drive to downtown Portsmouth for breakfast on a Sunday morning

So what do you want for $99 per night. The rooms are clean, new flat screen TV, meeting room clean and comfortable. My only complaint would be the bathrooms are the smallest i have ever seen. Ask to sign up for the Key Club and you will get $99 per night.

The hotel lobby is very clean and welcoming with nice decor. The check-in process was quick and with a smile. From there it went downhill. For starters the rooms need the same upgrade that lured us into the front of the building. The bathroom is tiny. You cant sit on the toiler and expect to close and open the door. There is no space. The tub needs to be re-done. It had chips and cracks. The wallpaper looks like its been re-patched on. For the amount of money we paid, it was not a very good value. Finally, this property does not offer free breakfast, instead they have a restaurant with inflated prices fo lunch and breakfast. No thanks.
