This is a nice comfortable hotel with large rooms. It is an older hotel and shows. Particularly the washrooms could use an update. However, the staff is very friendly and makes you want to come back. In fact, I stayed here 3 times in April.

Hotel's Favourite
Check in was smooth... our room was ready a bit early and we got to go in... Hallways clean, room clean... Bed comfortable, fridge, microwave, Kerig coffee maker... TV stations available okay...lamps had outlets but not USB ports... towels good size and soft... tub floor did not have slip resistance I used floor towel mat (I am not falling). Full service breakfast; good tasting and very filling. Some parking in front but plenty of parking in back. Staff was very courteous. Hotel lobby very nice... coffee and water always available and cookies too.. computer to use with printer right there. Had to deal with a fire alarm going off due to maintance oops fire fighters responded asap... inconvenience but glad to know they have safety in order. Right off roundabout up the short hill close to everything but away from noise. Maine was no farer than going to downtown. They have 6 floors but the 6th floor is like 5 separate rooms each having a living room. Have to walk down the hall and up 2 short flights to get there. Really great for a large familyl vacation... Our room was on 5th floor next to exit door down the hall from elevator no noise not even when someone uses the stairs! I recommended this hotel.

I've stayed here many times over the years. Although the hotel is dated it still has all the features expected. Easy on / off the highway. Full breakfast available during COVID. Clean and welcoming hotel.

This place definitely needs updating which you’d never know if you go by the fact that they charge $180 a night. I’ve had better stays at Red Roofs for a fraction of the price. There were stains on the curtains and the room had a dank feeling. Beds weren’t that great either Holiday Inn Expresses are 100x better and also cheaper.

We had a great experience at the Holiday Inn Portsmouth. The rooms were clean, the beds were so comfortable, and the breakfast served in the morning was the best I’ve had at any hotel lately. They had a nice sit-down restaurant with actual fresh-made breakfast food. The hotel is a mile from downtown Portsmouth, so it is technically walkable, but most people would just drive.
