4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2007

My wife and I were in Portsmouth on a brief holiday, and were very pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of the room. The owners and the staff were pleasant and helpful. The location on the Portsmouth Circle is convenient, but not so close to the interstate that it was noisy. Everything was as it should be, and we will... More

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2006

My family and I vacationed in New England in November and stayed at The Port Inn. We were looking for a hotel that was convenient to both Portsmouth, NH and Kittery, ME and we found exactly that in this quiet hotel. Upon our arrival we found ourselves checked in to a charming New England-style Inn whose lobby contains a lovely... More

We enjoyed the motel from the moment we arrived! It was clean, updated, and had a friendly staff. If we were to return to Portsmouth, I would return to the Port Inn in an instant.

The inn is easy to find and close to the highway. The rooms are decorated nicely, very quiet and the bathroom was one of the nicer ones I've seen! The staff is very friendly and make you feel comfortable.

This place has it sorted. Easy to find location just off the main highway (resulting in a little bit of background hum at busy times) but just outside a town well appointed with attractions and restaurants. Rooms are spacious and the unlimited continental style breakfast provided enough variety to satsify four different palates. Staff very friendly & helpful and rates... More

We stayed here for one night while on our return trip home and found it to be above average as far as motels go. It was clean, quiet (could not hear traffic from the nearby Interstate) and there were no unpleasant surprises. The front desk/lobby area is not large but looked very nice and the staff was courteous. We generally... More

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2006

I chose the Port Inn based on Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The lobby is very inviting and the staff very friendly. We were in the back of the main building in an economy room which was very comfortable, particularly the mattress and the wonderful down/feather pillows (pillows are usually my #1 complaint). I was able to relax as... More

Our family of 5 stayed here for one weekend night in August 2006. I felt the rate was plenty high ($152.95 plus $6 rollaway AAA rate for a regular double room) but it was similar to other area hotels. As others have posted, the rooms are delightfully decorated and furnished--it almost seemed more like a bed and breakfast than a... More

This is a well-maintained and run motel in a good location near to the interstate and also within easy reach of downtown Portsmouth. The rooms are well-furnished and clean and the front desk staff are very helpful. Breakfast is limited but adequate and because of lack of space you may end up eating it in your room. Finally, if heading... More
