“Finally a good option in Portsmouth”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We travel to Portsmouth at least twice a year for family things. It used to be a struggle to find a decent place to stay. Highly recommend trying the Residence Inn. We did have one issue, which was the location of our room being right next to the maids closet, so starting at 8am and continuing all day, all we heard was that door banging shut constantly. It did put a damper on relaxing or sleeping in. I would suggest you request a room away from the closet if possible. Other than that, no complaints. Well maybe the fire alarm going off at 7am one morning because someone burnt their toast. Should probably think about fixing the toaster as well, having everyone evacuate for something that could be fixed was quite annoying.

I selected this property because I was using multiple bonus nights from Marriott and it filled the criteria of certificates. We weren't disappointed - location was convenient enough for our needs and accommodations were more than adequate. Staff was pleasant, rooms and common areas were clean. This is an older style Residence Inn that has had some updates but still could use more. The room facelifts didn’t include cabinetry which could use resurfacing.
One suggestion at check-in the staff should have mentioned that they place a $20 per day hold on your credit card for potential incidentals. Not a large amount but I believe every charge should be disclosed upfront. Breakfast buffet was the standard fare for Residence Inn. I would suggest breakfast sandwiches that guests could heat up or grab warm. The egg and meat in this to go option tends not to be dried out and tastier. I don’t have any complaints.

Had a lovely stay in one of their suites which was two bedrooms and a living area with kitchen. It was great to be able to prepare food in the room but you wouldn't need to with the great snack they provide Monday to Thursday. This includes free beer and wine!
On our last day there was a power cut so no hot water in the morning but that really wasn't the end of the world. Great place, breakfast staff extremely polite and helpful.

When we checked in the power to the hotel was out. They couldn't make a key for us so we had to prop our room door open while we went to the car and then walk all the way around the building with our luggage to get in. It seems the staff could have held the back door open because we couldn't open it with out a key. The lights in the room were working but thats it, no heat, no hot water, no tv and they charged us full price. Also the blanket was quite thin and we couldn't find extra ones in the room. I am extremely disappointed in this hotel.

This hotel is located only a couple of miles out of downtown Portsmouth. The fireplace in the lobby was a very nice, cozy, warm welcome. Our room was quite large, clean and very comfortable. The Residence Inn provides a dinner on most nights andd breakfast every morning. Having a fitness room and a pool came in very handy. The staff was very nice, warm and friendly. I would definitely stay at this hotel anytime I am in the Portsmouth area.

The hotel is very well located, an easy walk th the downtown Portsmouth attractions. The service was very pleasant and the rooms were well laid out, clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was good. Our only concern was that valet parking was required, there were no other options.
