I am mystified by the positive reviews regarding this place. I expected more and got a lot less. My first impression of River Walk was a locked front door - which required the night clerk to buzz me in. The front desk had a lot of rules posted but none seemed to pertain to us. The nonsmoking room smelled of...

There is one and only one reason to stay in this run-down motel: the proximity to the Naval hospital, period. It's an old motel, not clean, not fancy, not in the best part of Portsmouth. You hear other guests yelling at each others at night and wonder if you should wait or call 911. During our stay it was 90%...

Stayed here with family and would suggest this place to my friends. Clean, well kept, friendly employees, will return when in town. A short walk away from downtown Portsmouth and ferry to Norfolk and a short ride to Virginia Beach. Highly recommend.

The front desk staff was excellent! My check-in was very quick and easy. When I arrived at my room the was room looked great. The wash cloths and towels were folded so fancy. At night it was so peaceful and quiet. I am not sure why this hotel were getting bad reviews but my experience was delightful.

**************************Don't stay here!!! I booked June 9th 2014 It's worse than any place I've ever stayed. Figured since near Naval Hospital it would be OK. It took me 3 days to even get a phone in room. Nasty people hookers and it is a hotel the City puts ppl up in. Had to ask for toilet paper everyday rolls cheap....
