College drop off

Hotel is attractive and right on the water. Very humid in the lobby with heaviness looming in the air.

Great stay for a convention

Everything was done wonderfully from the room, to the staff, to the amenities of the 10th floor club lounge. My only complaint is that the hallway of the 10th floor smelled like an old poopy diaper, it was disgusting. As soon as I entered my room, it was fine. Not sure if the carpets were cleaned recently and didn't dry out properly, but it was not up to par with what I paid for the room.

Excellent Value for the MONEY!

The room was very clean and cozy. My small family was comfortable. The Breakfast was great and my son ate a lot. We enjoyed the pool the previous evening. My only regret was the lack of a refrigerator in my room #907 and parking is paid. Overall GREAT VALUE!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The Nauticus is a short walk with a warship to tour. Joe's crab house is close by. You can take a ferry to Portsmouth if need be.

Good hotel, nothing great, nothing terrible.

Great location right on the water and the ferry docks right outside the hotel which is really convenient if spending time in Portsmouth. Staff seemed friendly though we didn't require much help from them. The parking was disappointing & pricey, we had the option of paying $25 for valet or $12 for self-parking, which is a short walk from the hotel. That's a lot for one night. Things seemed a bit loud in the morning, not sure if the walls are thin or what. And room doors tend to slam which is loud as well. Was a short stay so didn't get to use the pool or gym. Ultimately was a comfortable stay, but nothing spectacular.

A week's stay

I truly enjoyed my week's stay at the Sheraton Waterside! Everything was perfect . The location was great right in the heart of everything! The hotel's restaurant has great food I especially loved the breakfast buffet. The staff was friendly and helpful when asked for activity suggestions. The rooms were clean and comfortable, I had an awesome view of the waterfront from my room. The one complaint I have is that were not enough options on the TV . I couldn't find my Court Shows!!! Overall this was a great hotel and I had a wonderful week's stay.

Take the cruise to the Naval Base . It is a 2 hour narrated cruise and well worth the $20!!!
