Dawn greeted us and showed us around the B&B. Very interesting home, which is spotless. Dawn provided us with some recommendations for dinner. We arrived late at the Homegrown Cafe and they were ready to close, but offered to fix us something to go. We took it back and had dinner on the back patio. Slept well. We enjoyed breakfast and good conversation with Dawn and others staying at the B&B. Would stay there again.
The staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was clean, but worn (burn holes in bedspread, scuff marks on walls and doors, broken drawers in dressers, etc.) In a rough neighborhood, but staff do an excellent job keeping the facility/ parking lot safe. Another nearby hotel was much scarier on a recent stay. Breakfast buffet was goof for the price (danish, muffins, yogurt, waffles). Not a bad choice if you need to be right in Posrtmouth.
Shipbuilding provided the impetus for the creation of Portsmouth in the mid-17th century, and still remains an important part of the city. The Norfolk Naval Shipyard here builds and maintains the US Navy fleet. The Naval Shipyard Museum is located here too. Olde Towne Portsmouth provides shopping, dining, and activities along the Elizabeth River near Portsmouth’s historic center.
