"Its a clean bed and good place to stay"
just stopped for the night. It was nothing special. I booked a standard room which is just a queen bed, and it was Basically a no frills room. A clean room, shower and place to sleep for the night before the rest of my trip. For what it was, I think it was a bit pricey but based on alternatives it was the best option. The staff was polite and welcoming. […] I would book again for the same reason. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel. Sad pool. NO complimentary breakfast."
Just like the title says, it's a nice hotel with a sad pool in an atrium outside of the building and only breakfast that you can pay for. I stay almost exclusively at Holiday Inn Expresses and this is because the rooms and bedding are nice, hotel is clean and well decorated, the price is right AND there is almost always a great pool and hot tub as well […] as complimentary breakfast. Since I booked this trip on Expedia at the last minute, I didn't check on breakfast and being that there are several HIs in the area, I definitely wouldn't have chosen this one for that reason alone. Otherwise, a fine and typical stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Paid $200/night, stayed on the "6th" foor. You had to walk up from the 5th floor to your room(the elevator only went to the 5th, not broken, thats just how it is!!). Room was ok, shower was standup only. GF was upset bc it was hard for her to shave in the shower(small, no shelves). All in all, too much money(friends stayed downtown for $250.00, walk […] up to floor was silly and shower, insufficient. Not recommended Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Yes, the elevator is slow, the bathroom is small, the pillows a bit uncomfortable, and the indoor pool is next to the parking lot-but overall it is fine. Friendly service, decent rooms-close to downtown Portsmouth and a short drive to Hampton Beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice for the price."
Conveniently located; beds a bit soft; only one elevator; hotel staff very helpful and friendly; bathroom very small. Would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Had an OK room on the 6th floor...unfortunately the elevator only goes to 5th floor. After reaching the 5th had to walk the entire length of the hotel then up 2 flights of stairs then walk the length of the hotel again to get to my room...would have been nice to know this prior to arriving. Could have had the same quality accomadations elswhere and […] saved a chunk of change...I won't be back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The only good thing about this hotel is that it's close to the Kittery Outlets in Maine and also close to the downtown Portsmouth shops. When you check in at the hotel, the lobby is very nice and the elevator up to your room has a tv in it, so you are having high hopes that the room is just as luxurious. As soon as we opened the door to our room we […] were very disappointed. The room is tiny, no fridge, no luggage rack, and the bathroom was so small that you had to shut the door in order to get into the shower, and you had to take turns using the mirror. The only staff you see is the one person at the lobby desk. The indoor pool is right off the side of the parking lot in a separate room off the building- it's all windows so if you swim at night everyone around can be watching you. There is a restaurant next the lobby in the hotel, with a very limited dinner menu. It takes the unfriendly restaurant severs a while to notice you waiting to be seated. When they sat me and my fiancé down during breakfast they forgot about us, and I had to get one of the server's attention to take our order, and it took a half hour for our food to come out. Not worth the money at all, pay a little more and stay at a different hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"beware the 6th floor"
The sixth floor rooms are tiny and beyond the reach of the elevator. They result in a definite substandard experience so ask which floor before you confirm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not as good as HIE"
nice hotel but no free breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time staying at the Holiday Inn. The staff was very nice, and helpful. I would recommend them any day of the week!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and pleasant"
We stayed one night. Found the hotel clean and pleasant. It was a short cab ride to downtown Portsmouth and enjoy the convenience. I would reccommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel and Proximity to just about everything"
Very pleased with hotel and staff. This is the third time we have stayed at the hotel because of its proximity to downtown Portsmouth, Kittery Outlets, Hampton Beach and other sites. My wife and I like to walk so the 1.1 mile walk to downtown is nothing so we do not have to worry about parking, although their is plenty of parking available.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We just slep there and left early in the morning. It was fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Standard hotel accomidations"
The room was clean which is all I typically expect from a Holiday Inn...but the lounge was comfortable and the food was actually pretty good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location for price"
Would definitely stay again, easy walk into town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel but the thing that makes this hotel standout is the staff. Everyone from the front desk to cleaning staff was the friendliest and most helpful hotel staff I've seen anywhere in a very long time. Kudos to management for putting together such a great team.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms were nothing amazing. Location was alright in conjunction to downtown but still a slight hike. Pool was also very small. Still had fun though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything."
This is a nice, clean, comfortable hotel. Centrally located and accessable to everything. Very Good breakfast buffet with helpful, courteous waitstaff. We were in the area for a U.N.H. graduation. It was helpful to be so close to the University and eating areas. ThanksGenuine Expedia guest review
No hot tub. Rehab just done. But some old details left. Rusted door frames. Hollow core doors. Very very slow elevator. Good price. Nice overall hotel got business and quick in and out. Low budget hotels next door.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The stay was nice. No issues. Everything was clean enough and they were very accomidating. The price wasn't too bad. I woukd definitely use them again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Noisy Housekeeping Service"
This is a great hotel, very clean and well run. Our only complaint is the housekeeping staff lets the doors slam while they are cleaning rooms in the morning. We must have heard them at least 100 times in the AM before checking out, very annoying.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Be thrifty. Check in at Holiday Inn"
The bath tab was clogged and a bit untidy. The creamer on the breakfast table was probably outdated or spoiled. We had to request another coffee cup and fresh creamer.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel great location"

"Friendliest Staff Around"
Loved the location and the room. Overall, the hotel was very clean as was our room. Staff was very helpful with our finding a local restaurant for dinner. The pool here stayed open later than most hotels allowing our daughter to get in a quick swim following our night out on the town. Room was quite nice with updated furnishings...the bathroom, although […] very small, was clean and well-stocked with Bath-N-Body Works toiletries. Beds were a little soft for our liking, but not uncomfortable. Breakfast in the hotel dining room was quite tasty and portions were more than satisfying. Both check-in and check out were speedy transactions. The only negative with our stay was that there was some confusion between hotels.com and the hotel because they both billed my debit card. I called hotels.com and they, in turn, called the hotel to handle the reimbursement...I should have the credit in 1-2 business days. We would stay at this hotel again.

"overall pleasant experience"
My son and I met there as it is half way for each of us. We were greeted nicely and loved our room on the 5th floor right off the elevator. We really were happy to experience the pool. It was warm, clean, & quiet. We decided to eat in the restaurant at the hotel as the weather was rainy and we had been given coupons for 2 free drinks. The restaurant […] was very quiet, which was good, but the server wasn't very...welcoming. She said there were no specials even though the signage said to ask about them. "It's just there to get people to come in. The menu was limited, and when my Chicken Marsala arrived I was surprised to see that the chicken was fried. After stating this to our server, she said ...nothing. The Margarita I ordered was good. Our night's stay was wonderful, no issues. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Wonderful location and delightful staff"
It was a great hotel for location and comfort but I have to tell you that the pillows were too soft even though they said FIRM on them. This is being a bit picky but that is my only complaint.Genuine Expedia guest review
perfect spot for a quick weekend to visit our daughter at schoolGenuine Expedia guest review
The rooms were fine, would like to have refridgerators in the to save some of the exquisit food from the hotel's kitchen. Have stayed at this motel twice and both times the kitchen's menu and food service is among the best! I would definitely recommend this hotel. Our five year old loved the pool. Oh, and the breakfast menu is really good too. Okay, […] enough about food, however, it was a great stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"There is a reason if you save some bucks"
Ok, you come here because you want to save some bucks but ... You are not downtown (20-30mins walk), hotel interiors are old and with one crappy elevator to be shared with maids most of the time ... But then we saw for 3 hours a tray with food just outside the elevator at our floor ... Not a good sign. Best part is the nice parking, close to I-95: I […] said it all Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay!"
HI portsmouth was our choice of hotels for our girls shopping trip. We wanted to be close to downtown and the outlets in kittery, and this was a perfect location! The room was spotless, the bathroom and shower were also great. Service and food in the restaurant exceeded our expectations of 'hotel food' and the lounge at night is a great place to relax. […] Jackie was our bartender one evening and she was great to talk to and provided great service! All around I would highly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"ALOT OF WALKING"
WE BOOKED AN EXPEDIA SPECIAL SO I DIDN'T KNOW WHICH HOTEL IN PORTSMOUTH IT WOULD BE. UNTIL BOOKED. WE WERE ON THE 6TH FLOOR HOWEVER THE ELEVATOR ONLY WENT UP TO THE 5TH FLOOR. WE HAD TO WALK DOWN A VERY LONG HALLWAY AND THEN UP A FULL FLIGHT OF STAIRS, THE STAFF DID OFFER TO HELP WITH LUGGAGE HOWEVER. THE CARPETED STAIRS SMELLED STRONGLY OF URINE. THE […] FAN IN OUR ROOM (WHICH COULD NOT TURNED OFF) WAS VERY NOISY AND RATTELING. BED VERY COMFORTABLE. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Holiday Inn Portsmouth"
It was clean and at a good location so it served its purpose. Overall thought the price was too high for a holiday inn. Rooms are a bit noisy. We could hear our neighbors talking very clearly .....but it was only for about 10 minutes then they left. So it wasn't really an issue after that. There is an indoor pool. However, it's located right in the […] parking lot and lights are turned on at night. So there isn't much privacy if you care. They do provide breakfast. But I think Portsmouth has great breakfast places that are worth checking out. They hotel offers cookies in the afternoon, which is a nice touch. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"KEY TO WRONG ROOM WALKED IN ON COUPLE"
DREADFUL EXPERIENCE!!!!! We were given the key to the WRONG ROOM and walked in on another couple. They were just as upset with this hotel, The HOLIDAY INN in Portsmouth, NH, as we were. The receptionist should have handled the situation much differently...she barely apologized. We understand that everyone makes mistakes but the handling of this situation […] was not professional which was just as annoying as the situation itself. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasant but ordinary."
The front desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Hotel is very clean. Rooms were adequate but bathroom was on the small side. Pool was nice, but located in an odd place (felt like we were in the parking lot) as though it was added after the fact. Little things such as a mini refrigerator and chairs for the table would have been appreciated. […] Also we were missing a luggage rack in one of the rooms. We arrived early and asked if we could check in. Our rooms (two adjoining) were not ready but the front desk staff said they would call us when they were (this was a nice touch). When we arrived back after being told the rooms were ready, we found that only one room was ready. Had to wait an additional hour for the second room to be cleaned (which was also one hour past check-in time). Of all the places our family has stayed, this probably wouldn't be one of the top ones.

"Over charged for disappointment"
The Hotel staff were very nice & professional. However we were disappointed with the size of the bathroom, I thought that it was much to small. I could also say the same for the beds. The elevator, only one for the size & capacity of the Hotel. We were forced to use the stairs most of the time & because I have a disability, it made movement difficult. […] The pool, as well to small for the size of the hotel & because it is an indoor pool it creates an echo that we found painful & annoying. It is not monitored by the hotel. There were to many children yelling and screaming that made us leave the pool area without even getting into the pool. We do plan on returning to the area, but I'm sad to say that we will not choose this Hotel to stay at. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Our stay was wonderful. Staff very helpful. We were there for just one night for a family wedding. If I were to return to Portsmouth, I would not hesitate to stay here. It's right off the highway, just a stone's throw from historic area and price is much cheaper with free parking. Also, there's an excellent diner next door, a bonus as we were looking […] for someplace to have lunch before the wedding without having to go downtown. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
