... odd in that there is no state tax. I think we would compare this to our GST but each state sets their own tax. Instead they charge property owners very high property tax (rates). Annual rates on a $350k property are about $12k per year. To recoup some of this cost a lot of people rent their holiday homes out for several weeks over summer. Weekly rental for a beachside property at peak season is around $4k. York Beach, in Maine, was not as commercialised or as crowded as ...

... there dressed in period clothing to tell us about the cemetery, who was buried there, and some of the events of that day. He explained that none of the twenty hanged for crimes of witchcraft were buried in the cemetery. They were buried in shallow graves near where they were hanged. Those buried there were important people at that time like John Hawthorne. It was sad to think that all those people died due to false accusations. On the way out of town we took ...

So we would pack up the tent, sleeping bags and coolers and journeyed to the great Northwest woods of Washington State. We continued to camp when we could. Over the years, kids grew up, had their own kids, and we continued to camp, eventually in our first Motorhome, "Oscar". Up and down the East Coast, Maine to Florida, dodging moose in Maine, black bears and alligators in Florida, and crazy old drivers going the wrong way on Interstate 290 in ...

After leaving my stepson at the airport and spending two and a half hours in the 'rush hour' traffic getting to Connecticut I had a nice little visit with Nick Tiberio.

Nick has a passion for old Chryslers and has been keen to help us with my nephew, Ben, and his project. He phoned me back just in time for me to drop off the freeway and go to his place.

    Relaxing getaway!

    from

    Clean, quiet & friendly service! Always a pleasure to stay!

    Great place to stay

    from

    I have stayed at this hotel on a few occasions for business and have taken advantage of using the function rooms. The staff was extremely helpful in setting up the room for my event and the General Manager did everything to make our stay enjoyable. My customers loved the convenience of having the rooms across the hall from our function room so they could go back and forth at their leisure. My husband and children used the pool while I worked so it was a little vacation for them. The rooms are very clean and I will continue to use this Gem for my annual scrapbooking weekend!

    Great Spot

    Nice location close to everything...easy to find...hot tub stays open til 11:00pm.. Be sure to ask for discount at Warren;s Lobster

    Nice place to stay

    from

    Stayed here on Mon Aug, 29. I was pleasantly surprised as we found this hotel in tourist magazine that you can find in any rest stop. The coupon was for $69 night. We were originally quoted a price of $140 when we inquired at the front desk. The room was equipped with a microwave and a refrigerator and was very clean. Would definitely stay again.

    Nice Suprise!

    We were just passing through Portsmouth, NH and stopped at this inn. The landscaping drew us in. The pool was great for the kids. The room was spotlessly clean and quiet. It appeared freshly renovated. The price was reasonable, too. We were able to get free evening tea, and free breakfast in the morning. All around, a winner!

    An average place to stay.

    from

    Recently stayed one night at the Anchorage Inn & Suites.

    Reservations:

    It was a very last minute decision to stay in Portsmouth so we called the hotel directly to check availability and pricing. We were quoted a rate of $135 per night which was more than we wanted to spend. I quickly checked some internet sites and was able to find a rate of $75 per night for the same type of room!

    Room:

    The room itself was a little on the small side - but it was clean and comfortable. The air conditioner was noisy - but it helped block out the road noise from the major highway right next to the hotel. A plus was the refrigerator and microwave located in the room - which would be great for families traveling with children.

    Breakfast:

    A continental breakfast was included with our room rate. They had a nice area to eat but there was a limited selection of things to pick from. Some small muffins, bagels and cereal in addition to coffee and juice.

    Pool:

    The hotel had a very nice indoor pool and whirlpool.

    Service:

    I give the hotel a very low score for customer service. The check in process was slow - there was one person at the desk who was continuously interupted by a ringing telephone. As we tried to check out, the same thing happened - only this time there was a line of customers trying to check out. We waited as long as we could and then had to leave before we could complete the check out process. The other staff members we had contact with were in the breakfast area and housekeeping. They were there to do a specific job - and being nice to customers was not part of their job description.

    In summary, I thought the Anchorage Inn was an average place to stay. It was worth the $75 we paid - but I wouldn't pay more than that.

    A pleasant surprise!

    We recently stayed at the Anchorage Inn in Portsmouth while attending a wedding. I was a little unsure of staying in an independent hotel because I usually stay in chains, but I must say that this is one of the nicest, most attractive and well maintained places I have ever seen. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and attentive, and our room was absolutely spotless. Lauren at the front desk was a huge help in finding the best restaurants in town and lots of local activities. It is obvious from the wonderful service and attention to detail that the employees take a lot of pride in this hotel. It is definitely worth a try on your next visit to Portsmouth.

    Vacation Stay

    from

    We stay at the Anchorage Inn on July 1st, 2005. We got at the hotel early, about 12noon the young man at the desk , found us a room so we could get ready for a dinner shower. Tom made us fell like we must have been going there for years. (If you go there ask for Tom)

    The room was very clean and thay set the A/C .

    We only stay a few days, but would like to go back next month for a few more days.

    The price was a little high, but it was worth every penney.

    Check them out.

    Thanks

    Tom and staff

    Fantastic place with an even more Fantastic staff!

    from

    I loved the Anchorage Inns & Suites in Portsmouth! I can't say enough about the hotel. It by far has the best staff of any hotel my wife Doris and I have stayed at. With us being seasoned travelers that is really saying something! One young man who works the front desk on second shift named Mike really is the defenition of the term "asset to the company".

    It was really nice to see a young man who takes pride in his job and who just genuinly cares. Besides the hotel being just plain beautiful, Mike was one of the main reasons our getaway was so Fantastic. We WILL be returning to the Anchorage on or next trip to New Hampshire.

    Not the romantic evening we wanted....

    from

    I was recently a guest at the Anchorage Inn & Suites at their Portsmouth NH location. My Fiance made our reservations through Hotels, which was probably a bad idea. One of the main reasons we chose this hotel was because they have an indoor swimming pool and whirlpool suites. See at the time of our visit I was 8 months pregnant and really looked forward to having a nice swim and then later a relaxing bath in our room. This was meant to be a romantic night away from our toddler before the arrival of our second baby, but it was not. When we arrived at the hotel we learned that the pool was broken, a hole or something, and then to make things worse, our room was not a whirlpool suite. We tried to upgrade, and at first the woman said we could not because we had booked through Hotels, she then said that she would do it, but we would have to put it on our credit card. We were all set to do this when she then informed us that we would need a 200.00 cash deposit as well. Well it was after 5 pm, and there was no way we could get any cash, so we tried to see if they could make some sort of compromise, since the pool was broken, and I could not use the hot tub. The lady was insistant on the deposit. My fiance wanted to cancel the reservation and go somewhere else, but because of the pesky Hotels thing, we would not be reimbursed by the hotel, but buy the website, and it would take a few days. So we ended up staying at the Anchorage, but we were rather disappointed. I definately reccomend calling to make your reservations, and ask if the annemities are all in working order.
