Stayed there once before, seemed to be pretty nice with great view. Attempting to stay again this summer but so far haven't been able to make contact, sent check for full payment but haven't heard anything back yet, check still un-cashed, starting to get a little nervous, hoping check made it okay and we are good for this summer...Just love...

What more could you want? We had an event to go to in Rye in 2014 and didn't want to drive up at the crack of dawn so we booked a night here. Couldn't have been more pleased! We will be there for two nights this year and are SO looking forward to it!

☆☆☆☆ Have been staying here for 15 years. Truly the best value and scenery on the Seacoast. Quiet, refined, and clean. You won't be disappointed. Highly recommend. Close to beach and Petey's restaurant. ☆☆☆☆

Husband and I were traveling through the area in the late afternoon September, 2014. We had stopped at the beautiful beach across the street from the Crown Colony to play in the late afternoon sun and spotted this vintage place. It was quiet, clean and friendly. A huge picture window overlooks the ocean from across the small road. I felt... More

Hands down our favorite place to go on vacation. We've been going annually to Crown Colony for several years and stay in one of the patio cabins. Sitting out in front with one of the best ocean views I've ever seen having our favorite beverages. Just can't beat it. Love the town of Portsmouth as well, plenty of good food... More

This is the place to stay. Perched on high land across Ocean Boulevard, Crown Colony offers spectacular ocean views and down home service. Bill is a friendly and hard working host, rooms are clean and spacious. Good access to Portsmouth and Hampton if you need to get out. And the price is awesome. Book well in advance. Great place to...

Came across this place quite by accident, driving from Portland Maine to someplace south to spend the night....getting discouraged by the hustle of Portsmouth, NH...too busy and nothing but major chains and sealed windows, sterile environments....then a breath of fresh air....Crown Colony showed up in our windshield! Funky, clean, a cat laying in the sun! Great price. Super casual. Almost... More
