I am a former Portsmouth resident and have stayed many, many times in the area returning to visit;I have tried almost all the hotels in the area and this hotel is the only one we have stayed at repeatedly due to its exceptional quality and value. The rooms are always clean, with very fresh bedding etc. The room set up is great,whether traveling alone or with children. The perfect sized kitchenette which is actually stylish (stainless steel appliances!) more like a mini kitchen than a kitchenette-you can buy a few groceries for snacks or eating in (you could stay longterm; many servicemen-this is on a guard base- and families do so sometimes hard to get a res.); the furniture is modern and stylish and comfortable, even the sleeper sofa. The rooms may seem a little small but that's only b/c they're packed with tons of comfortable and useful furnishings. The TVs are great. As a bonus, there's a great pool and hot tub and the best hot breakfast around. And the staff are wonderful, very very friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a reliable, clean, comfortable hotel with good food and a relaxing pool area, this is for you! Please be aware this is not located in downtown so you will have to drive to get to Main st. Portsmouth to walk around town but it's only a couple miles-this is on the (former) Pease Air Force Base which allows for plenty of easy free parking, charges and no problems with traffic or noise. We even bring our bikes to ride around because there is a conservation area on site for riding or hiking. It's also really easy to hop on the highway and get to Maine beaches or the outlets in Kittery (about 15 mins).
