4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We paid a little more than we really wanted to for just staying one night while passing through, but it was worth it. The bathroom is really NICE. They have a heated pool but we didn't use it. The room was super clean and very nice. The beds seemed a little small for two people, but we still slept pretty... More

My wife and I stayed overnight at the inn and it exceeded my expectations. For a business traveller the Inn is well located, easy to reach and convenient. The room is large with comfortable double beds and bathroom with shower. All the amenities you may want except a safe. WiFi works great and parking in front of your room. The... More

This hotel is one of the finest in the area. Hot breakfast in the morning, all the important amenities. Close to great shopping and New England seafood restaurants and great beaches. Staff is friendly and want your stay to be special. Always go back if I am in the area!

I spent quite a bit of time at this hotel recently. My room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The breakfast is not your typical run of the mill continental breakfast found at most hotels. I am sure I drank a pot of the local organic coffee every morning of my stay. It was that good. I was most... More

I was quite pleased with this property. Simone was outstanding and went out of her way to make our stay as comfortable as possible (and it was!). It's a family owned hotel and the staff really extends that "personal touch". Clean, classy and convenient.

Dear David: Thank you for taking the time to review our inn. I very much appreciate the king words. We certainly feel lucky to have associates like Simone- Thanks so much for recognizing her, and for mentioning our natural and biodegradable amenities. We were just awarded the Trip Advisor Green Leaders award for our sustainability practices. I hope to have... More

Only spent one night. This inn is conveniently located. Looks like it was recently refurbished. Our room and bed were very comfortable. Large bathroom. Our dog was allowed for a fee. Check in efficient. The continental breakfast was so much more. Cheese omelets, cheese biscuits, bacon, sausage, breads, pastries, cereals, fruits. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this inn. The only... More

From the pictures on the website, it seems this hotel is nestled among a wooded area. Unfortunately, it is located on a busy highway right off the interstate. The room was nice and the bathroom was very spacious but when we needed the AC, it didn't work, neither did the heater. We didn't want to sleep with the windows open... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel. I appreciate your kind words about our room and bathroom. First, I would like to apologize for your air conditioner and heat not working. It is an unusual situation here, as we have a rigorous preventative maintenance program. If we had known, we would have immediately repaired your... More

The staff is awesome; the breakfast was wonderful; great coffee. Property clean and safe. I booked the king suite and it smelled of mold and mildew. I moved to a regular room without a problem. Luckily they had a room available. No elevator to get to suite. I received help bringing suitcase up but not when I changed room. I... More

I could not believe this hotel was so great. I initially wanted to stay in Sheraton or Marriott but they simply had nothing available for the restaurant week. So, I went online and read reviews of other hotels in the area. The Port Inn had not a single negative review and I decided to stay there. Nice and quiet regardless... More

Booked the Port Inn online. Pictures and description sounded much better than we found them. Rooms were small and definitely in need of an update. There was way too much furniture for the size of the room, making moving around difficult. The only comfortable chair was right next to the a/c unit so you froze when the unit kicked on.... More
