Situated just off the freeway on the outskirts of Portsmouth, this is a good base if you are driving everywhere. It's a 10 minute drive to downtown Portsmouth. With free parking in front of your room, moving in and out is a breeze. The bed and pillows were just okay as were the shower and towels but the toiletries were... More

Stayed with a group of friends for a long weekend of exploring the seacoast area. Rooms are clean and and appear to have been updated recently. The complimentary breakfast was remarkable. Set up like a buffet breakfast in a restaurant. Hot and cold items, as well as fruit and juices. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. Our room was in... More

We stayed at the Port Inn for 1 night on July 8-9. We were given an upgraded room to a king. The room was immaculate and looked like new. Very clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was pretty good and served off the front desk area. The pool is in the rear of the property and was clean and refreshing.... More

We stayed for one night and were very friendly welcomed at the front desk. Room is small and somewhat dark due to one small window near the door. They have a swimming pool outside. Ask for a room at the back otherwise the traffic noise can provide a bad night sleep. We walked to the city center, takes around 30... More

Initially we were disappointed by this hotel - we'd paid a high rate as we arrived on the 4th July - only to be given a room reminiscent of the motel we'd stayed in on the 1st nigh of our holiday that charged half the price, and looked very unlike most of the pics on the site. However this was... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in this hotel for a long weekend. Our room was not available upon arrive but the staff were welcoming and provided us with directions to town and several places to shop and eat. The hotel is about a half hour walk to downtown or a $6 cab ride. The lobby and rooms were decorated very... More

My family and I stayed at the Port Inn on our way to visit family. We had originally booked at another local hotel, and when we arrived at 9:30 p.m., found out the hotel had no water. The Port Inn was just around the corner, so we stopped not knowing what to expect. The motel has a cute New England... More

My father, boyfriend and I rented two rooms at The Port Inn in March of 2014. We were in town for an event and were looking for simple rooms that were clean and relatively inexpensive, and The Port Inn exceeded our every expectation. Though we do feel compelled to state that this is a motel despite the name, we were... More

We just returned home from a lovely get-away to Portsmouth NH and felt the need to praise the staff at the Port Inn. When we first arrived a bit early the lovely Noreen was only too happy to check us in after confirming that our room was ready. We were pleasantly surprised with a beautiful room directly across from the... More

Stayed at this place for the weekend. I have to say my favorite parts were how quiet it was and how nice the property was. The rooms were clean and comfortable enough. Our bathroom was a bit dated, if it was renovated, I would have given it a higher rating. One downfall is if you are out at night, it... More
