We needed a place to stay on the way to Rockport, Maine. We wanted to explore downtown Portsmouth and wanted a reasonably priced motel. We absolutely fell in love with Portsmouth and we adore The Port Inn! We were in one of the front rooms. We were not bothered one bit by Route 1 traffic. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice sized bathroom. The rooms are not huge but big enough for a quick stay. The décor is pleasant but I found the wallpaper to be a bit dated. Perhaps a fresh coat of paint rather than the patterned wallpaper would spruce up the look. We did not use the pool but it looked nice. Check-in and check-out was VERY quick and friendly. The breakfast and coffee were both very good. Yes, there are lots of carbs but my husband (who chooses to eat gluten free) enjoyed the fruit, the yogurt, and the rice cakes. You get a lot for your money here. Free wifi, breakfast, parking. Compare to the hotels in downtown, and you will be paying half the price. It is a quick trip to Market St and we had no trouble finding a parking place. Stay at the Port Inn if you need lodging in this part of NH!
