My wife and I stayed at the Port Inn one night in May of 2011 and a second night Ten days later in June of 2011. No kidding... This is a fantastic little hotel right off the highway... Not to far from downtown Portsmouth. I've paid twice the price at other hotels around the country for half of what is... More

Our room was large, attractive, quiet and immaculately clean. We loved the small, delicious pastries set out for breakfast every morning (tiny coffeecakes with caramel are amazing). It's on the outskirts of town so you have to drive to get to the fun part, but that's easy to do and the staff offer a good map/directions. We'd highly recommend The... More

Beautiful landscaping, clean suite, great bed and one of best pillows ever. Nice selection for continental breakfast. Small bath, but nice towels. Organic toiletries. Reasonable price. Would stay there again!

Stopped for one night whilst on a flydrive, top marks to tripadvisor again. Clean, bright room with microwave/fridge and coffee on the go in the foyer. Reception staff both helpful and friendly, we followed their advice and walked into town to eat at the Portsmouth Brewery where the food was good and the place bustling with locals. Definitely worth a... More

We stayed at The Port Inn for 2 nights. It was a nice & clean motel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Even if it is on a busy boulevard and only a few steps from the highway, the rooms were very quiet. Only a 15-minute walk or 5 minutes with the car to the main street where all... More

I read the reviews of this place before we booked and found some VERY good comments, so I was particularly curious about this stay on our trip. We arrived and the man at the desk was friendly and rather talkative. One could even say too talkative, although he very helpful in showing us a map and where the best places... More

Needed a nice place to stay to visit the Portsmouth area, including the Market St. area and the Redhook Brewery. Wow, what a find. We found the Inn on an internet search of the area. Found the Inn very easily and so close to everything we wanted to visit. Carol was working the front desk and welcomed us immediately. She... More

This hotel is around a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive from downtown Portsmouth and I found it to be a very good value. The room rates seemed very reasonable for the quality of the room and the very helpful staff. The free continental breakfast was actually really good with coffee, juice, yogurt, various delicious breakfasty baked stuff, toast,... More

We had a lovely conversation with the very friendly receptionist during check-in who gave us directions to downtown Portsmouth (a very short drive - only about 1.5 miles) and helped recommend a place for us to grab dinner. He seemed like he was willing to help recommend anything our hearts might desire! He even upgraded us to a King-size bed... More

This motel has excellent service, spotless rooms and everything you need for an overnight stopover. The staff were particularly impressive and were full of information on local sights and facilities. The rooms were well appointed and fairly quiet although the motel is on a busy street and some rooms closer to the street get some traffic noise from 630 am... More
