Positive Reviews

Handy roadside location

Being next door to the Mall at Fox Run for shopping and dining options was a big plus for most reviewers, who also appreciated the proximity of gas stations. The location just off US Route 4 and a short drive from Interstate 95 reportedly offered easy access to downtown Portsmouth and the airport too.

Clean and comfy low-cost option

This motel's straightforward rooms were more than adequately clean, comfortable and spacious for a shorter stay, according to many travelers. There was praise for the revamped rooms with their laminate flooring, modern TVs and bright decor. With its affordable rates plus perks like the pet-friendly policy and free parking, many reviewers felt they got fair value for money.

Praise for customer service

Negative Reviews

Unpopular Wi-Fi charges

Extra fees for Wi-Fi access were a downer for reviewers who were often surprised it wasn't included as a freebie. Furthermore, it was claimed that the network sometimes had slow speeds or a patchy signal.

Nuisance smells and noises

Lingering smoke smells in certain parts of the property were an annoyance for some reviewers. Moreover, noises from neighboring rooms were sometimes audible at night, which bothered some light sleepers.

Cleanliness and maintenance grumbles

There was reportedly work to do for this motel to raise its cleanliness and maintenance standards. Some critics said trash wasn't always disposed of properly or that they found hair in some rooms. It was also claimed that some bathrooms weren't always cleaned well. There were also reports of non-functioning air-conditioning in some rooms or occasionally slow-draining water.
