“So So”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Booked a day out with girlfriends and stayed at this hotel. We booked the hotel off of the few reviews from this website. The reviews were OK but not terrible. The afternoon clerk was friendly and checked us in with easy, she even assisted us with directions to our destination, she was very helpful. The room had a old like smell to it, bathroom was clean, the twin beds were bug free as we inspected each bed. The TV in the room would only play in pink? Ok a new TV wouldn't hurt. The workout room had 2 step machines, only 1 worked, 1 treadmill, 1 noisy stationary bike and 1 broken elliptical machine. There were no towels or items to wipe down the equipment, but there was water. Breakfast was from 7-9 didn't have enough time to partake in the hot foods only had 1/2 orange. I did see a waffle maker to make your own waffles, sausage, eggs, hard boil egg, lots of cold cereal choices, bagels and toast. The night clerk was extremely unfriendly, not tentative to our needs as I requested extra towels. It appears that we disturbed her from a program she was watching. All-In-All the room was OK for our girlfriends outing and the price. No bugs, thank God! The parking area was questionable because of the sign that stated "park at your own risk, area known for flooding" Thank God it didn't rain that night.

Room Tip: Church's Chicken is across the street.

My rewiew on this hotel is very good, it is based specially on the politness and good service of the clerk working there at the reception. Even the location is very good and prices not expensive.

My fiance and I checked into this hotel after a long day in Norfolk. The hotel is in a poorer section of Portsmouth, with a lot of activity going on at 11pm on a Sunday. Parking was ample, luggage cart ancient, and check in quick. The front desk attendant was friendly, and the lobby was standard, not bad just not memorable. We had doubles with a slight smokey scent. You get an 20yr old tv, and basic dresser. The room wasn't very clean, and linens looked questionable. The beds were comfortable, bathroom small and cramped but fine for one night. Upon check out we did not take advantage of the offered breakfast which looked basic. There are a couple of nice breakfast spots within a 10min drive to downtown Norfolk. All in all I would say this hotel should be advertised as a two star, to better give potential guests an idea of what to expect.

Room Tip: Try not to check in late.

Its in an historic district of Portsmouth with lots of old churches and buildings close by. Hotel was clean and staff was friendly. Double beds were small but comfortable enough. Pillows left a little to be desired. Small 25" "box" style tv in room. Pool was clean and fitness room was adequate. 2 gas stations, Pizza Hut, Mcdonalds, Churchs Fried Chicken and a Starbucks were all on same block w/in walking distance. Will have to drive to nicer eating establishments.

This place is okay, but if you're used to a typical Courtyard or Hampton Inn, this is a step down. The breakfast is basically donuts, orange juice, and the waffle machine. No yogurt, skim milk, oatmeal, or fruit. They start vacuuming the hallway at 7:30 am (while banging the vacuum into your room door). The vent in the bathroom was so caked with dust that it looked as it had not been cleaned in years. The front desk assigns Hotwire reservations to smoking rooms and then claims that is what you requested (it's not even possible to make that request in Hotwire). However, they're willing to work with you when they have an open room. The staff is friendly, but if your expectations are low, you won't be too disappointed.
