Stayed here with family and would suggest this place to my friends. Clean, well kept, friendly employees, will return when in town. A short walk away from downtown Portsmouth and ferry to Norfolk and a short ride to Virginia Beach. Highly recommend.

The front desk staff was excellent! My check-in was very quick and easy. When I arrived at my room the was room looked great. The wash cloths and towels were folded so fancy. At night it was so peaceful and quiet. I am not sure why this hotel were getting bad reviews but my experience was delightful.
