“Dog friendly makes this place excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

I was nervous at first because we got a very good price on the room and it was a small non chain hotel. When we got there it was right off the highway and the staff were very friendly. The room was quaint- nothing special- but all we needed was one night before we headed up to Maine. The fact that this hotel allowed our dog for $20 was the biggest selling point.

I was very nervous when we arrived because the Inn is located off a major road. I worried that the traffic noise would be terrible. The room was very, very quiet though (and we slept with the windows open). The bed and bedding were fabulous. Beautiful full size granite shower. Fridge and micro in room an added bonus. Great continental breakfast included. For the price, you really can't beat The Port Inn.

A really nice place. Staff was so friendly and the room was very clean. Free continental breakfast was nice. Left a hat in the room and was able to pick up the next day. Will return again on our next trip to Portsmouth

This motel is only a couple miles away from downtown yet a lot more affordable than the downtown hotels. Room was spacious and clean. I left my iPad behind in the room and about an hour after we left I had an email from the motel staff letting me know. Ver much appreciate the honesty and quick action!

The hotel is very quiet and a short drive to downtown Portsmouth. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Staff provided a map showing the back roads to take into downtown Portsmouth along with good suggestions on parking. Good continental breakfast. Rooms were very clean. I would stay here again when travelling to Portsmouth.

Just what we needed. It's nice to find a non-chain motel that is friendly, clean & simple. Decent breakfast, knowledgeable staff, nice pool, large rooms - near enough to the Portsmouth downtown & easy to find off I95.

We stayed at the Port Inn for one night. We are Seniors, and we found it to be a great place to stay. The queen sized bed was comfortable; room VERY clean; breakfast included; park very close to room; although off the highway, we left the window open all night a d weren't disturbed by noise - I'm a light sleeper too. We would recommend the Port Inn without hesitation. Also, owners are very accommodating,too.
