I was tired and traveling solo. grabbed two beers and some popcorn and then was anti-social and went to my room. Room was very clean - No complaints! Forgot...

We've made an annual stop in Portsmouth on the front end of a vacation at the Lake with my wife's family the last few years and this has been our spot every time. We've never had a bad experience. Staff is always super friendly and helpful. Location is ideal - lots of parking, well lit, close to downtown but also...

Very nicely kept hotel in the very center of shopping. Close to the attractions in Portsmouth and located just a mile from the I-95 on ramp. I was most impressed by the staff in how quickly the snow was cleared from the parking area and how they maintained a positive attitude during a spring snow storm.

We needed some time away from the general everyday ho-hum, and staying at a hotel for a night or two is one of our favorite ways to get it done. This hotel offers all the amenities we want. A nice room with a king-sized bed and walls that we can't hear the neighbors through is always welcome. Tops of wall...

We often stay at hotels in the Hilton chain, but this was the worst experience we've ever had. We had a king room with an in bath whirlpool tub, upon filling the tub we noticed the water was yellowish or rusty and left a dark ring around the water level.

Most things were ok. Cleanliness of the room left something to be desired when I noticed the long black hairs in the shower that definitely were not mine. Stayed at much better and also stayed at worse. Pretty much down the middle.

So to be fair. This was during a blizzard "Stella". However these were issues that could have been avoided. We showed up a little over an hour early before check-in and asked to check-in, as I called the day before explaining we were driving 3-4 hours south to avoid the blizzard. They told us it they would work with us....

Room is a standard Hampton Inn room. I have stayed here before for business. This visit, however, was disappointing. When I pulled back the bed covers, I found that the bed sheets had OBVIOUSLY not been changed, Luckily my room had two queen beds and the other bed looked clean. Shower stall, soap dish had not been cleaned, even though...
