We spent one night at The Port Inn on our way to Maine after landing in Boston about midnight. For reference, it is about an hour drive from Logan Airport. Check in was easy - as we were the last guests to arrive that night, there was no parking space by our room and we had to park across the... More

My wife and I stayed for three quiet, restful nights. The room was a bit small but well appointed. A refrigerator was most useful. The Inn offered a full buffet breakfast. It is convenient to the center of Portsmouth and the Kittery, Maine shopping area. The staff was cordial and helpful. It is a place we will definitely use again.

This was a surprise. I am a former resident of Portsmouth and always knew it was there, on the traffic circle, and picked it based on price. It is part of the Choice Hotels group, so that was a plus as I got points for my stay. I felt that it was excellent all around. Great convenient location. Nice room... More

I stayed in two different king bed rooms. Both were clean and one had a small kitchen. The motel is not fancy, but clean, affordable and easy to access, Similar to the older drive-up motels of the past.

I viewed this hotel on line and it looked like a quaint New England Colonial Inn. When I got there was met by a very courteous receptionist. I realized this property had been at same location for a over 40 years off the circle. the lobby was quite nice. I booked on line in advance via Comfort Inn website. I... More

We've stayed at The Port inn a few times and really like it. Its location is easy to find and not far from downtown Portsmouth. Its very clean and comfortable, the staff at the desk is very helpful with the Portsmouth area recommending restaurants and other area things to do. They have a continental breakfast, A good place to stay... More

We were pleasantly surprised. Port Inn was lovely and well cared for. Just a delight. Rooms were just fine clean and spacious. The staff very pleasant helpful. Our stay included a tasty and generous breakfast. There even was dog walking area. I do wish it was enclosed so I could let my dog off leash for a little exercise.

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
