“Had a good stay”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Have seen some complaints about noise, small rooms and hard beds, but it was all good for us. I thought the 2 queen bed room was plenty roomy, beds were comfortable and heard no noise at all (and were just 3 rooms away from the elevator). Bathroom was a decent size with good hot water and okay pressure. Plus a good selection of TV channels. Takes about 20 min to walk downtown or you can park a few blocks from DT on Islington where there are no meters. Great city and a good stay.

This hotel is right next to the highway which was perfect for our stay as we wanted to be on the road early. The room was clean and an average size. The staff was helpful and friendly. There had been a fire in the adjoining restaurant so we could not have breakfast at the hotel but there was tea and coffee available in the lobby.

We stayed here one night on our way further north in New Hampshire. The location was right off the highway and easy to find. The room was average sized and clean. Beds were comfortable and the location was quiet.

Loud noise all night but great location and good price. Did not know what the roaring sound was - thought maybe laundry or heat/air system on the roof as we were on 5th floor, but according to Charles K review - it was the elevator. Desk clerk did not care when I mentioned this to her and basically shrugged me off but glad mystery solved and now know what the noise was. If you stay here, avoid rooms near elevator unless you are a sound sleeper!!

Room Tip: Like Charles K, our room was very loud (room 510 I think) I thought it was laundry but it went all n...

On behalf of the Holiday Inn, I do apologize for the disturbance during your stay. I will work with the Engineer on property to find a solution to the noise issue you mentioned. I also will discuss the matter with my front desk staff to make sure they are handling guest concerns appropriately.

Fairly clean room, beds were a little hard 914 year old said it hurt her back), the bed covering had a stain, need to throw those away. Cable would go out but we weren't there to really watch TV so not a big deal. Well the 9 year old wasn't happy but she got over it. All in all, not a bad hotel, definitely been to worse but also slept in a lot better. The hotel bar closes early so be prepared for that if you want to have a drink. Closes at 10 during the week and 11 on the weekends.

We had a group rate so it was worth the money. The restaurant had good food but stops serving at 10 on the weekends. The location is good. Average really, nothing stands out other than I really liked the location, convenient to where you need to go and right at the end of the rotary. Oh and the kids did like the pool, it's 6 feet deep in the deep end.

My husband and I visited Portsmouth earlier in the spring and we enjoyed it so much we decided to return. My husband originally booked a one night stay at the American Inn but was given an upgrade to the Holiday Inn. Perhaps it was the word "upgrade" that made me expect more than what we got. The room was smaller than what I was expecting and when I entered the bathroom there was a used towel hanging on the back of the door. Other than that, I will say the room was very clean and the staff was very nice. The hotel is located about 2 miles from the center of the city so you will need to drive for shopping and dining (although there is a hotel restaurant which we did not visit).
