A quick stay here. Rooms were clean and staff was very friendly. It was loud. But, it was busy so that is expected. The power strip in the room didn't work. Had to rearrange so I could get the TV plugged in and on. Room door looked like it had been jimmied. The handle would only rotate up not down....

Hotel is nice, clean etc. As a motor coach operator, I stay in a number of hotels and find the practice of requiring a 25.00 incidental fee to be 1. Offensive 2. Bordering on theft! When I checked out, I asked about removing the 25.00 hold and was told it would take 7 to 10 days or maybe less? I...

The Holiday Inn Portsmouth offers warm friendly service, clean rooms, firm mattresses at a great price! When I walked into the the front desk to check in, the concierge greeted me by my name! I was surprised by her very personal greeting and asked how could she possibly know my name? I was informed that I was the only outstanding...

Desk assistance was very helpful when I first arrived. I was an hour early so she accommodated an early check in. The room was not bad but the carpet made me feel like I had to have shoes on to walk around. Lots of stains. The bedsheets did not look like they were super crisp clean but instead just dried...

A noisy hotel. On a recent stay (3 nights in late March 2017), we endured loud mechanical sounds - shuddering thuds n the wee hours of the morning, noisy bathroom exhaust fan somewhere nearby, poor sound insulation between rooms - two nights in a row. Kids running and yelling in the hallway after 10pm. Their parents took them in tow...

We used our hotel coupon to get a good rate at this hotel. The Front Desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. The Port City Pub in the hotel was great ... and the food delicious. Our room was spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated. We had a beautiful view from our 4th floor window.
