The Wren's Nest was a very nice, quaint place to stay in Portsmouth. We opted for a regular King-sized-bed suite as we were staying only one night. I had been debating between various hotels but when I came upon the site http://bedbugregistry.com/ the other hotels went out the window. The room was a great size and very clean and comfortable, with neat wooden beams across the ceiling. I was surprised that there was no phone book or menus in the room (first time I ever ran into that in a hotel), but was able to get one at the front desk as we always order in on vacation. It was unfortunate that the pool was only open between 4 and 9 p.m., as we got in at 9:15 and would be leaving at 8 a.m. and part of what had attracted me to the Wren's Nest was the indoor heated pool with waterfall. I understand keeping costs down for the off season but it was a disappointment. I was surprised also that there we no kind of vending machines – hardly a big deal but my husband has a habit of wanting a quick snack as soon as we stop before dinner is delivered.
The next morning I learned that the ceiling was thin as my husband complained that the people staying above us were stomping around their room from midnight to 3 a.m. preventing him from sleeping which made for a difficult morning. I sleep like a log no matter what (I've slept through a chainsaw going off 20 feet from me). So I would suggest requesting a second-floor room if possible.
All in all it was a good place to stay and next time I’m in Portsmouth I will be staying here again.
