This is a beautiful hotel. I really loved the rooms. The pool was a little small and the food is extremely expensive. I was a little upset that there wasn't a free breakfast like everywhere else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Like15 Very accommodating and friendly service
My husband and I were in Portsmouth to attend a funeral. The staff at the hotel was very accommodating, allowing us to check in early to get ready for the funeral. They gave us a bereavement discount on our room rate and made sure that we had everything we needed. We would stay at this hotel again; the hotel staff made our stay very pleasant and stress free.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joyce100 Holiday Inn Express-the best in comfort!
On my 6th day of an 8 day bicycle tour, I arrived at Portsmouth in the pouring rain. I dried myself and the bike off as best I could before going into the lobby. The front desk clerk was most cordial. When I was concerned about being on the 3rd floor, he assured me that most bicycles fit in the elevator.
The hot shower felt great. The bed and pillows were most comfortable. I enjoyed the convenience of eating supper in The River House (the hotel restaurant) without having to go back out into the rain. And my sore leg muscles enjoyed the whirlpool.
The next morning, I missed having a "complimentary" breakfast, but the cook and waitress in The River House made me a great breakfast before I continued my journey.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TommyJames Room with a river view?
This motel is the only chain motel in the downtown area. We were told our room was on the river side. The only view we had from the second floor was the building across the street. The front desk was very helpful in accommodating our needs. It was late at night and there were no rooms available when we initially asked (we had no reservations). They began calling near by motels (that were just out of town) to see if they had any rooms. As they were checking they received a cancellation and gave us that room. The motel restaurant service was a little slow due to being under staffed. The hostess was also our waitess. After our order was placed she disappeared for sometime in the back where our food was being cooked. Other guess that arrived after us waited more that normal to be seated.

Hotel is not smoke free as stated and advertised to customers. Bathroom dirty. On two separate stays hair was found in the bathtub and bathroom floor. Staff seemed unconcerned when alerted to the above concerns.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lana90 Excellent Service
The only thing I did not like about the hotel was that you could not get to the stairs from the 1st floor if you wanted to go up the stairs and there is only one elevator that is very slow.
Besides that everything was great. The staff was excellent and very attentive! They worked to meet all of our needs including cleaning our room at a certain time and promptly moving us to a new room when we had a issue with the shower drain. Everything was clean and in good condition. The staff was excellent.
