Howard Johnson Portsmouth
Ranked #10 of 17 Hotels in Portsmouth
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Stayed here the night before traveling out to a meeting the next day. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff was great, very cheerful and friendly. They called me by my first name and loved that personal touch, don't see much of that any more!! Morning breakfast was great just what I needed to start my day of traveling and meetings! All in all this place is a hidden gem cause the quality and service exceeds the price you will pay!

We stayed here on our way to Bar Harbor, ME and it was nice. The rooms and hotel itself were nothing fancy. For under $70/night and a free continental breakfast, this hotel deserves a very good rating.

We stayed for one night and would like to return to see more of Portsmouth. We stayed here as a waypoint on a trip to Acadia and were glad we did. The rooms were very nice, wifi was good and the price was very reasonable. Check in and out was easy, parking was available and the room was very clean and bed comfortable. Breakfast was the usual cereal, juice and bread but we were happy to have it. We would be very happy to stay here again.

Decided to tag along very last minute on a trip to Portsmouth N.H. My companions were already booked here. Gentleman at front counter very friendly. He was able to reserve me a room at last minute which was great. Location is very convenient to down town Portsmouth. One and 1/2 mile walk through beautiful neighborhood depending on Rt. taken. Beds were comfortable rooms spacious. Only issues we had were, my room entry door out of square. You could see into hallway more as you looked down door. That which may or may not have been the problem to housekeeping's racket in the hallway waking me up at 7:15 each morning. My companions did not have that issue with their room. Air conditioning in my room was tricky, theirs wasn't. Breakfast was continental and included. Cookies are on counter for quick snack. Coffee was great. Great diner across the street quick walk. My friends with me frig. smelled horrible and could not be used. One other problem upon check out was confusing price of room. We thought the price I was given upon arrival was price of the room. It ended up being 20 dollars more when tax was added. I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

Room Tip: The pool is across the street and the Holiday Inn which is there sister Hotel. The is also right ac...

Kelly,
Would you mind contacting us directly with more information about your door so that we can have it fixed? I apologize for the noise you heard but want to let you know our housekeeping staff do not arrive until 9am on a daily basis. I am glad you enjoyed the fresh cookies supplied in the lobby in the afternoon hours, and our 24/7 fresh coffee. I would also like to have more information on the refrigerator in your friends room so that we can address this with housekeeping. As for the pricing confusion, in the State of New Hampshire, there is a 9% tax on all meals and lodging. Thank you for recommending us and we hope to have you with us again soon. Thank you.

My wife and I have stayed here three times. The staff has been very friendly and professional as well as accomodating to our needs. The rooms are modern and could be compared to a Comfort Inn for their sophistication and cleanliness. Some minor things to be aware of - The pool is actually at the Holiday Inn about a block away. It is shared by the hotels and other than lacking a bathroom or hot tub, it gets the job done. The continental breakfast is a little lacking but the affordability and staff more than make up for any shortcomings. -Highly Recommended-

Thank you for reviewing our property and choosing America's Best Inn for your accommodations. We are also glad to hear you reviewed us on our modern rooms that sophisticated and clean. The Holiday Inn pool is 500 feet away and because we are sister properties, they allow our guests to use the pool for free. Thank you for commenting on our great rates and we hope to see you again soon.
