I highly recommend The Port Inn. The staff was very hospitable and friendly. They are very accommodating. The rooms were nice and clean. It was quiet even though it was a busy location along Rte. 1. It's close to downtown and also easy to get to the coast. We will be going back, perhaps often.

Earlier reviewer said "thoughtfully remodeled." Agreed -- and that thoughtfulness has been applied throughout. Everything done well, from room to breakfast, in spite of constraints imposed by space footprints. Excellent value without being cheap. Very glad Trip Advisor brought me here; would def stay again.

This hotel was a real treat to stay at. They had a two-night minimum requirement, but that wasn't a problem for us. When we made reservations online, we requested a quiet room. When we checked in, they voluntarily upgraded us to a suite at no extra charge to meet our request for a quiet room. The breakfast included deluxe muffins,... More

Stayed here in February2014. Travelled through a winter blizzard to reach this destination. Was very easy to find, right off the " round-a-bout ". Clean, well maintained. Friendly staff greeted me at the check-in desk. They were very helpful in giving directions to shopping areas and places to eat.

This a very wonderful stay. From booking at last minute to checking out. I would highly recommend this hotel. The room was very clean. The breakfast was delicious. I will recommend this hotel to friends and family who travel to this area for a stay. Wish we had one of these hotels nearby.

I was pleasantly surprised by this motel. I had driven into Portsmouth for the Columbus Day weekend and they were one of the few relatively affordable options in the area, and for this reason, I was expecting a bit of a dump. However, this was certainly not the case. It seems this may have been an older motel but it... More

The staff, service and rooms were all excellent. Rooms are nice and clean and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend The Port Inn for anyone looking for a convenient place to stay; just two minutes from downtown Portsmouth.

We had a suite and felt very comfortable & cozy. Very good hot & cold breakfast. The staff are welcoming and helpful. It is a 5 minute drive to downtown Portsmouth and a quick access to Kittery outlets.

Stayed here just one night. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Spent time with a map showing us the way into Portsmouth either by car or walking (about 15 minutes walk). The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with parking available directly outside. Good bathroom. Breakfast was okay, continental, which is usual for motels these days. Our first time... More

Good room, nicely kept property. Close to city center (but not walking distance). Breakfast nice, especially because it was clear they cared about it. Lovely to sit outside and eat it. Very friendly people. Decent price/quality.
