The hotel is very clean the beds are extremely comfortable better than the ones next door at the best western and comparable to the Hampton Inn and Fairfield inn just a few blocks away.
The location is in a good spot right by the circle so it is convenient to go all directions and extremely quiet in the rooms I normally would pass over a hotel like this being so close to the highway.
The rooms do not all have Microwaves and refrigerators i did request a refrigerator form the front desk and did get the last one but it did look like they went dumpster diving after the UNH kids got out of school. The refrigerator I had in collage was in much better condition. (Other 3 hotels above all have acceptable frig/micro) The room only has Wi-Fi and was extremely slow could not stream video and to stream a video from Netflix was completely out of the question unless you hotspot tether your own cellphone. By far the slowest internet I have seen at a hotel in at least a decade. The internet I had in the B&B I stayed at in Rangeley Maine last month had better Wi-Fi then this hotel.
If you are traveling with a female you will need to request more towels, but this is very common in hotels today smaller towels and less of them. Hair dryer is in room it was a little hidden under sink in a black bag. The TV in room was a good size and is a flat screen(very amazing since the Wi-Fi server is from 1995). Restaurant is on property but no continual breakfast is provided only hot water and reg. coffee any Decaf.
If you are just stopping for the night to get sleep this is a good choice but not the best value in town I would only stay here again if everything else is sold out.
#1 Residence inn by red hook (not cheep be if I am in town for a week no question best value with all the extras),
#2 Hampton Inn (free washer and dryer is a big plus, continental breakfast and happy hour during week)
#3 Fairfield inn (nice beds and continental breakfast.)
#4 Best Western (nice rooms just as long as you are not by indoor pool smell, Wi-Fi and Ethernet for best internet connection in Portsmouth)
