This hotel was great for a one or two night stay in the Portsmouth area. You probably couldn't walk downtown, it's about 30 mins to get there from this hotel. Having said that though it was only $6 to uber! It worked out great, especially considering the hotels in downtown are $400 a night! I know that Howard Johnson's don't typically sound like super awesome hotels but this one exceeded our expectations. The room was fairly new looking and definitely recently updated. It had everything you'd want in a room, even a fridge. The hotel even offered continental breakfast for free. The ONLY issue I has was that they had all kinds of breads and things to toast for breakfast, but no butter or cream cheese. The only options were peanut butter and jelly. Overall though I would definitely recommend this hotel for the thrifty traveler!
Linds945, thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you enjoyed our brand new rooms! Our property is perfectly located between the major highway and downtown Portsmouth (about 1.5 miles from the hotel). I am glad that you were able to enjoy our free continental breakfast during your stay. I am sorry that you could not access the cream cheese and butter. We do offer it in the breakfast room in a separate container from he jellies. During your next stay please ask any one of our staff members and they would be more than happy to assist you.
No frills, comfortable bed, about what you would expect from a hotel chain. The room was clean and neat. A little bit away from the center of town, and a little difficult for a stranger to navigate to in moderately heavy traffic
garykB8764LC, thank you for taking the time to review our property. I am glad you found your room to be clean. Our housekeeping team works very hard to keep the rooms in the best condition possible. We are about 1 mile from downtown Portsmouth. It can be tricky to travel down if you don't know the are as it is a very popular place to be. But we can always recommend different modes of transportation like the City Trolley to get to the downtown area. Out front desk staff would be more than happy to help you with this during your next stay with us.
My friends and I stay at the Howard Johnson for a girl's get away. Beach & shopping !

Heather helped us with restaurant suggestions ( Chinese resto was amazing) and directions to places. She always had a smile and so polite!! Breakfast was also good.
