Howard Johnson Portsmouth
Ranked #10 of 17 Hotels in Portsmouth
Reviewed 26 March 2017

We received a warm, friendly greeting and quick check-in. Our room was spacious, CLEAN and comfortable. The lighting fixtures were nicely arranged to make for good reading and writing and convenient control. One reviewer mentioned skimpy towels, but we had fluffy luxurious towels and hand cloths. The stairways were messy because there was renovation going on, but our room and the hallways were spotless! Kudos to the housekeeping staff!!! The free continental breakfast was simple and basic as expected. People can sometimes be slobs and/or inconsiderate. So, I recommend a little more attention to the breakfast area. The counter was messy and the floor was sticky. Our only complaint really. The hotel is economical, clean and comfortable...a great value.

Room Tip: Our room was on the road side but any noise was minimal.

We stayed here three nights and were feel claustrophobic at the end. Bad weather curtailed our outdoors activities, so we spent more time in the motel than planned. The rooms had poor insulation. The couple next door were quite amorous and we could here all their activities. One of the bridges was out and it made it very difficult to get to several of our planned stops.

I stayed here for a week-long business trip. It is an excellent accommodation for business travel. Staff are friendly and efficient. The property is clean and well-kept. I booked a last-minute rate of only $48, which is amazing for Portsmouth! There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance, and the hotel provides a decent continental breakfast. This hotel is a good choice for business travel, unless you are driving a Suburban (and why would you for business travel?!), as the parking lot is a little tight!

Stayed here after going to concert at Portsmouth music hall since quick drive from downtown and close to highway. Friendly staff and easy check in process. Accomodating to my request to be on side of building away from road and away from elevator and ice machine. At check in, there was a large container of water with fruit infused in which quenched my thirst. Simple clean room. Convenient to have mini fridge and microwave in room. Comfortable bed. Enjoyed using treadmill in fitness room. Recommendation to have some plain greek yogurt (with no fruit in it) in breakfast room. Overall comfortable place for a reasonable price.
