Manager was rude, lude, and crude! He charged us for a one-night stay (deposit) because we moved to another motel instead of his. This motor lodge was filthy, with a spider sitting in the room. While on govt travel, many other hotels do not charge us one-night deposit if we cancel because we often are separated from our group due to lack of room blocks.

Arrived late afternoon. Never left car. Called to cancel from cellphone and charged for rooms because no 24 hour notice. Stayed at another Choice Hotel that referred to this one as "crack alley". Photos on website totally misrepresent actual facility. Some construction being done but very bad condition evident from parking lot and thru open doors.

This is not a luxury hotel, but if you are passing through town...no reason to pay more somewhere else. It was fine for me.I was told by friends that this is a really rough neighborhood, but I am a 29yr old single woman and had no problems at all. The front desk staff was very nice.The room only had 2 towels and a small TV...but again...this is only a 2 star hotel. It was very clean and quiet. I stayed on a Wednesday night. Weekends may be more noisy...who knows? I would not bring my kids...just because of the reputation of the area of town,but for me-it was perfect for what I needed the room for...a quick stop through town to meet a friend.

My daughter and myself spent 11 days at this motel. We were treated very well by all of the staff, they were friendly,polite and helpful. The room was clean and adequate for our needs, and house-keeping called each day. I look forward to staying there again in the very near future.

We stayed at the Days Inn last year in Portsmouth for the Cock Island Race and unless you like a dirty room, with a dirty bathroom and street people hanging out in the lobby at all hours dont stay here. I've never felt so un-safe or un-clean in a hotel before. There was non-descript hair in our bed, the linens came over on the ark and we didn't dare walk in the bathroom w/out our shoes on. The staff was non-existant or busy filing nails or whatever instead of cleaning the place up. At all hours you would find questionable characters sitting in the lobby that you KNEW were not guests. Stay at your own risk!
