I stayed here 2 separate times; October 4 & 5, then again October 14, 15, & 16. On the 4 & 5, the rate was very pricey, so I used points. On the 14, 15 & 16, it was much more reasonable to my wallet.
This is a beautiful, huge hotel. Typical residence inn. It is kind of out in the middle of nowhere. There's 2 restaurants right by it. And, down the street a little there are malls, a Walmart, Trader Joes, and chain stores and restaurants. If you go the other way about 2 miles, there's a nice Target which is right by an entrance to I-95. Downtown Portsmouth is about a 10 minute drive (you can't walk to downtown from here). It is very convenient to the Interstate. The hotel has free parking and good free wi-fi.
My suite was perfect. It had a fully equipped kitchen, a separate living space, a nice-sized bathroom, and a super-comfortable king bed. The sheets were clean and fresh and wonderful.
There is a huge lobby where you have breakfast. The (free) breakfast is better than most - full buffet, and the people who work the area were very nice and very efficient. There's a nice fireplace in the dining area. There's also a good business center. There's a pool and gym (but, I use neither).
Within walking distance is a brewery, which is also a restaurant with music entertainment on some nights.
The staff is very nice and helpful. In particular, there was one lady at the desk every morning who was just so pleasant. I am sorry I didn't get her name.
I drove up to Maine for several days, then came back and stayed here again. I will definitely stay here again when I find myself in Portsmouth again. I loved the place!
