“Very nice staff”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

We only had a meal there but the staff was very accommodating to our requests for our elderly member. The lobby is very nice and is very clean. We were taking a family history visit to the area - it is the home of Branch Ricky and my husband's family.

I have been visiting this hotel approx every other month for the past year. They were heavy into renovations when I started staying here. Now the renovation is finished and its pretty typical for a Hliday Inn.
The rooms are the nicest in Portsmouth-flat screen TVs and updated floor and wall coverings. The bedding is typical of Holiday Inn-very comfortable for me. I don't care for any Holiday Inn pillows but there are 4 on the bed to choose from. All the rooms I have stayed in have refrigerators and micros. I stay on the front of the hotel and the floors above street level have a nice view of the OH River-actually the beautiful bridge that spans the OH. There's a levee blocking actual views of the river.
There is a swimming pool with a large comfortable seating area-there's a huge skylight in the pool area. It's a good spot for families. There also is a small workout room with 2 treadmills that are new-with a TV on the side wall in that room. When I've been there there have been adequate towels for both the pool and exercising.
There is a restaurant in the motel, I usually bring my own food but have eaten there one time. It was ok but not unusual or special to me.
It's not a Holiday Inn Express-no breakfast service . That would make it better for me, but typical for Holiday Inn.
The staff is very helpful and courteous in every way. I did observe a panhandler trying to take advantage of the kindness and he was handled fairly professionally-and removed from the premises.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front have a better view

This downtown location provided us with easy access to Noggins and restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. Although this is a downtown location, there was ample free parking. If traveling to Portsmouth, I would recommend this hotel.

Thank you for staying at our hotel. I noticed your review from May. (Mothers day weekend) can be a very exciting time. It is TOSRV, a bicyle Tour of Scioto River Valley. It starts in Columbus, Ohio, traveling to Portsmouth, Ohio and returns the next day. Next time in Portsmouth, Business or Leisure I wish you a good stay again.

This holiday Inn is located in downtown. It is close to places to eat. It is very clean and the hotel's restaurant serves good food. Service is very good.

Our room was clean and recently remodeled. It was nice and beds comfortable. Only thing is we were on the second floor right outside the elevator on a Friday night, there was a lot of noisy guest coming in at 2 and 3 in the morning and they were very loud, apparently drunk. This went on about 3 or 4 times during the night, I should have called down and complained, so with that said the hotel was great but ask for a room away from the elevator even though these fools walked all the way down the hall yelling and screaming and giggling at each other so I'm sure they woke a lot of other guest up too. All in all the hotel was a good clean place to stay but a bit pricey I think, cost us over $100.00 for 2 double bed, 1 night stay.

Thank you for choosing Holiday Inn. I am so sorry for the noise you experience. St. Patrick's Day weekend sometimes comes with some heavy celebrations. We do try to keep our hotel quiet for our quest's comfort. Next time please call down to the Front Desk and let us know of any disturbances, There is staff on duty 24 hours a day, and the celebrating guest may not be aware they are being too loud.

This hotel isn't bad when you consider the location. Overall the room was nice, the bed was comfortable and the staff was really nice. I got in late so I didn't feel like going anywhere so I decided to eat at the restaurant in the hotel. After having to send my food back, it was ok, which isn't how I typically like to classify a $22 meal.

Overall this hotel is old and covering up old with a can of paint doesn't work.
