Exceptional 10.0
Gem of a hotel in downtown Portsmouth
This was a great little hotel. The room was ready for an early check in, very clean and comfy. Complimentary water, coffee and breakfast were much appreciated. We loved the location, it was a very short walk to all of the shops and restaurants in town, and unlike many of the other hotels, parking was free. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice but not sure I’d stay again
The staff was amazing at the hotel, especially Maggie. I was a little disappointed in my room. This was our first stay and I had booked the Deluxe King Room. The pictures online made it look like a great space, but the room we were given was basically just a room with a king size bed. I did inquire about this and was told that was a deluxe room. I was also given a lower room rate. The bathroom was very tiny. It was probably as big as a bathroom on a cruise ship. The view from our window was the parking lot. I know there’s not much you can do about the location. It was centrally locates to many of the shops and restaurants. This was a plus.

Very clean, tidy and updated, super short walk to all the best restaurants and shops, extremely easy parking and great front desk staff, good coffee and a nice grab & go breakfast if you need it. We had an exceptionally pleasant stay at Hotel Portsmouth and will definitely be staying here again each time we come back!

Very good 8.0
Staff was super friendly and the rooms were super clean. For the price would have appreciated a mini fridge in the room and an ice machine at least on the floor, let alone clear posting of where to find so. Location was convenient and was by no means unreasonable. Either a white noise machine or radio would have been appreciated for the loud hallway.
