4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The space is very cute and comfortable. Its a great location. The only thing, and its minor, is that I imagined it to be a cute little building on the outside but its actually a floor within a bigger building so it just didn't match my imagination.

Location, location, location! Staff was very helpful and responsive. Cute room, only disappointment was a very small window in the room, but it's an old building. Had character and right near everything downtown. We've already recommended it to friends who go to Portsmouth a few times a year.

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
Room walls were so thin you could here the conversation in the next room. Bathroom tub was clogged so we took showers in a foot of water. Room remakes of cleaning solution and the bed was tiny. Overall good location but not worth the money-won’t be staying here again.
