This motel was a real find. It was clean, quiet, comfortable, and in a good location. The people went out of their way to be helpful. We plan to stay there again when we are in the area. MS, Alexandria, VA

Traveling by car for l4 hours, we wanted to have a goal of where to stay that would be a good value for the money. The pictures on the websight looked too good to be true but in reality The Port was decorated in a lovely way. We arrived at l0 p.m. and yet were warmly welcomed by the owner.... More

We stayed at the Port Inn for three nights the end of March. They had a special two night "shopping'pkg for $149, including a gift basket of wine, cheese, candy, and coupons, plus we stayed a third night at the AAA rate of $80. Compared to all the other accommodations in the area, this was a bargain. The Inn was... More

We made the reservation via the phone, the guy was very polite and explained us about the package. We arrived the Port Inn a little late due to severe snow storm but the receptionist was very nice and made our check in very smooth. Clean and pretty room, bathroom is neat and clean. The complimentary wireless internet was great...the location... More

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

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
