Reviewed 24 May 2015

We booked a room at this hotel over a year in advance for a cycling event. Our booking price was less than $60 with tax. However, when we checked in, the amount charged to us was more than double ($139.06) what we booked at. We would have never booked this place for that price. The overcharge was bad enough but there were no bath towels in the room, the ice machine has been removed (by the Fire Marshall according to the desk clerk) and there was no wi-if in our room. I contacted the owner about these issues and he never responded. Don't waste your money on this place. Stay at the Super 8 or Comfort Inn which are located very close.

Room Tip: Be prepared to pay whatever they decide to charge no matter what you book at.

I stay here occasionally due to thats were my work puts us. It is an "old" but clean place. Location is close to all the local stuff. The staff is always very nice! Forget their claim of free internet/wifi. It barely works if you're in the 1st two rooms closest to the lobby. 3 rooms or further away & forget using the "free internet". The free breakfast is good "considering" hotel price & type of hotel. Most of its business is from railroaders & some construction workers. Like I said clean but "old". For a few dollars more & you can stay somewhere much nicer. Especially if you'll check prices online. Like I said, clean but "old".

Found a few roaches in the bathroom, carpets weren't clean and looked as if they hadn't been cleaned in months, although the lady up front was nice, it wasn't a good experience at all! No internet, half the lights in the room worked and half didn't, and then they knocked on the door when the do not disturb sign was up. How disrespectful can you be?

clean old motel but no internet for the 2 nights we stayed there. we called the desk twice about the internet and they couldn't do anything about it. (they advertise free internet) I don't think they have internet anymore if you notice the dates of the previous reviews, they must have gone off the grid in july 2014.

Despite the old horrible reviews on TripAdvisor, in May of 2014 the Ameristay Hotel in Portsmouth was OK. The desk clerk at the filled-up Comfort Inn recommended it over the nearby Motel 8 because of the reports he'd heard from customers.

Ameristay Portsmouth is an old but clean motel that now caters to budget customers and weekly renters. Don't expect luxury. The swimming pool was filled in with dirt and covered with grass. It looks like the motel used to include a restaurant but that was long gone. Some of the outside paint was peeling.

If you are sensitive to noise, you'll want to bring earplugs. The in-room refrigerator rattled so much that I unplugged it. I need to unplug most motel refrigerators because of noise, not just this one. Early in the morning, a flock of amazingly noisy birds started chirping outside the room. This was in a room that faced the pool.

On the plus side, I didn't hear a peep out of the other guests. There weren't many of them!

The staff was friendly and glad to have me there.

I've stayed in much worse places.

The Ameristay Portsmouth is OK.
