“2nd time even better!”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

Was in NH for a wedding and decided to stay here again. First thing we noticed was the comfortable atmosphere of the main building. They used have this country thing going on but the lobby is much more tasteful.

Our room was clean & comfortable. The staff was great but the place was busy for this weekend.

I would definitely recommend this place!

Like other reviewers pointed out, there are some good things about this property and some not so good things, but I think there is an even bigger issue with Marriott when it comes to how they promote the properties they own in this area. There are actually TWO Residence Inns in Portsmouth: one on International Drive near the Pease Airforce Base and another on Deer Street in downtown Portsmouth.

We called the Marriott Rewards customer number to make our reservations 2 months prior to our trip and thought we were booking the Deer Street property. You can imagine how surprised we were when we showed up at that property at 10:30 at night after a 7 hour drive, only to be told that we didn't have a room there, that in fact, our room was at the other Residence Inn a couple of miles away . The front desk clerk said "oh, this happens all the time." Well, if that's the case, shouldn't Marriott do something about this to make it clear which property is which? We called Marriott and they promised to make this better, although we weren't sure how as it was late and we wanted to get to bed. So we drove over to the Residence Inn on International Drive.

The front desk was very friendly to us, as we had called them from the Deer Street location and they were aware of the issue. This property is very outdated and could really use some sprucing up. There is paint chipping everywhere and the pool is near the lobby so the smell of chlorine hangs heavy in the air. Our room was on the third floor and was a decent size, with a bedroom area and a sitting area, but it smelled awful....kind of like a chemical floral scent over a stale musty odor. There was also hair on the wall inside the shower. Breakfast was cereal, oatmeal, belgain waffles and a couple of hot choices, but they ran out of forks and sppons! I ate my yogurt with a plastic knife! After this debacle, the next day we called Marriott again to make arrangements to stay at the Deer Street property. They told us they had availability so we checked out of the International Drive property. Late in the afternoon, we went to check in at the Deer Street property (which is new and LEED certified) and the front desk told us that they didn't have a reservation for us. Turns out, Marriott Rewards customer service booked us for the wrong nights! So we had no place to stay! After an hour of working with the front desk clerk there, they were able to book us at the Fairfield Inn, yet another Marriott property in Portsmouth. All in all, it worked out, but Marriott owes us big time and needs to make this right for 1) Not being clear and making the distinction between the two VERY different properties in Portsmouth to prevent future mix-ups 2) When attempting to fix the mix-up, they booked us for the wrong nights at the Deer Street property leaving us with no stay 3) It took us over 2 hours to find another place for us to stay, plus check-in and unloading our stuff, etc. We would not stay at this property again, and would be hesitant to stay at another Marriott property when other brands such as Starwood have better customer service.

This is a great hotel located next to the Portsmouth-Pease Airport and close to the downtown area of Portsmouth. It is a very clean and quiet property, and the staff was more than accommodating when it came to restaurant directions, business center activities, etc. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Top floor would be quieter.

I really loved this place. Our stay was just overnight and we rolled in at 1:30 am. We were road weary and desperate for a shower and a comfortable bed. We walked in and were greeted by Linda (I think that was her name) she was very friendly and welcoming. She checked us in quickly, advised us of the salt-water pool and sent us up to our room. We were really disappointed we didn't have our swimsuits with us, the salt water pool sounded awesome! The room was well appointed and modern, even the room art was cool. The bathroom counter had lights softly glowing underneath to give it a floating effect, also eliminating the need to turn on the harsh overhead lights while making late night trips to the bathroom. Everything was just so thoughtfully done. Oh! and breakfast was complimentary. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We stayed here on our way to Boston from Maine hoping to have a look around Portsmouth as we had heard it was a nice town. The hotel is well kept with a nice pool and the rooms are very spacious and well appointed. The breakfast was above expectations and the staff were friendly. When we arrived to our room there was a man right outside the window on a machine hammering cladding onto the wall. We thought this a little odd and were happy that we were only staying the one night, the oddest part was that the staff didnt make any mention of him at all. Later that night I noticed that there were a lot of crumbs on the floor of the kitchen area and a bowl on the counter that was to be used for popcorn was very sticky. The rest of the suite seemed clean enough. There was ample parking. The hotel is located a good distance from the town and is really located beside the airport in an area called Pease. Ideally next time we would stay at the Residence Inn in central Portsmouth. It was also very expensive for the location.

I really enjoyed our third floor suite room. The 2 bedrooms are divided by the living room/kitchen and each bedroom has a private bath. There are three LCD HDTV's - one in each bedroom and another in the living room. The king beds were very comfortable and the room clean. Many extra pillows and bedding was available in this room. The lodging rooms are connected by a walkway to the lobby and gathering area, so this eliminates any noise transfer from this area. Our room was very quiet, thus providing a restfull sleep. The included breakfast buffet on Sunday morning had enough selections to satisfy adults and kids.

This was a one night stay for a family event in nearby York Harbor Maine. This New Hampshire location is near the Pease airport and a little ways off I-95. On the east side of the hotel is a brewery and the west side is Paddy's bar/restaurant. Time didn't allow a visit to either location. No restaurant on site, but many choices within a couple of miles. There is a small market in the lobby area to buy snacks, cold & frozen foods and soft drinks.

We will certainly stay here again when returning to the NH or ME area.

Room Tip: Get the 2 bedroom suite if you have more than two people. You'll be happy with this decision.
