Superb 9.2 From 61 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Located in a former Brewery (hence the hotel name) and right on the Portsmouth docks bordering the Piscataqua River, this is a quaint gem in the mundane world of chain motels. It is located above the Seacoast Repertory Theatre (but is quiet) and is walking distance to all of "old town" Portsmouth. The staff (Craig and his crew) are wonderful, there is hot/cold coffee on (appropriately) beer taps in the reception area, the rooms are small- but very comfortable. All in all, a great stay and we'll be back.

Poor 2.0
No ac, placed was closed. Tried to put us in a “sister” property which was not too good, so we canceled and found somewhere great

Very good 8.0
Quaint & quiet...
The Inn is quaint and clean, staff is friendly, location convenient... the building entrance could use some work.

Fantastic stay - we'll definitely be back!
The room was cozy, extremely well-maintained, and comfortable. It's clear that the staff cares deeply about maintaining a clean and welcoming environment. Service was excellent - friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the comfortable lobby area with complementary water and cold-brew coffee. And when we checked out and accidentally left a pair of sunglasses behind, we received a phone call within 5 minutes to let us know. We were able to go back and pick them up before we'd left town. Fantastic experience, would recommend to anyone.

Great place, central location, friendly people
The check in process was great, they were very accommodating of our needs. It is a small place but located in the center of everything and they have bikes to borrow - how cool is that?
