    directly off the highway and the cookies

  • Older travelers

    Desk clerks are friendly and the warm freshly made cookies are awesome!

  • Older travelers

    Booked a king but got a double bed room. Came in after 7 PM so maybe there were no kinds left.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    The hotel was simple, clean, and an excellent value overall. It was in a great location - easy to get to, and close to downtown portsmouth.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    It is easily accessible from road, good parking, nice facilities, good continental breakfast (no hot food though), helpful staff, not brand new (ie: mattresses ) but nice and clean. I've stayed there twice now and it is nice though not luxury, good value for the price. I would stay there again.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    This is a great value. The rooms are clean and nice. They have a continental breakfast for the mornings which is ok, I usually grab a yougurt and toast an English muffin. The staff is pleasant, and it is easy on and off the highway. We have stayed at this hotel for several years now when we come to visit family in the area.

    Nothing to complain about. If something is not right, the staff has always fixed the problem

  • Couple

    It a nice room, reasonably priced.

    The smell of smoke pervaded the hotel, even on the non-smoking floors. Also, there was no room cleaning after our first day.

  • Older travelers

    helpful desk

    Noisy situation. Booked at peak time - very expensive for basic motel.Very thin walls with page 19 of the Kam Sutra next door

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    hotel was in close prox of all we had planned to do, bike race in portsmouth, shopping in kittery and explore along coast

    there seemed to be a mix up w. reservation on-line, but hotel admitted it was human error on their staff's part

  • Single
    7.4

    Great, convenient location. Nice and helpful personnel.

    Needs some updating but good value for the price. Breakfast could have had more options.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Hotel was easy to find and only a five minute drive into town and a 20 minute walk. Very clean, nothing fancy. Good value hotel with a comfortable bed.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The room was ready for us; the breakfast was included. I felt safe.

    The hotel needs some sprucing up. The carpet in our room was terribly soiled. The bathroom had wallpaper that was coming down. A general updating would help. The breakfast was good but not everything was out at one time. Eventually, the entire meal was in place.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    The welcome was warm and the breakfast was adequate.

    The overall impression is slightly depressing and a bit run down. The checkin process was glacial even though the clerk already had lots of the paperwork already printed and keys ready. Couldn't figure out why it took so long. On an evening when the hotel was completely full, there was only one person at the desk. They had also overbooked the hotel and were in the process of sending people away when we arrived. We waited 20 minutes before we knew we weren't in the same boat. The fish in the tiny aquaria looked demoralized - though they were not in fact as dead as they appeared to be.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Clean, friendly staff, good am breakfast, easy to use tv, close to all the evtns I needed to get to, very reasonable cost for services given. I simply needed an overnight room for a funeral in the Portsmouth / New Castle area...i had such a pleasant experience at American Best Inn Portsmouth, I'd choose to stay there again, if I needed..

    I thought perhaps a few more drinking cups in the room might have been nice In bathroom by sink, a soap dish ( even a disposable one ) would have been nice

  • Group of friends

    Quiet rooms....nice bedding,towels

    Terrible bath soap...breakfast fine but never had creamers for coffee...important for me first thing in the morning.....others were complaining also..
