“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed our stay at the Port Inn. Neat, clean, reasonably priced and convenient location. Loved the fact that it was small. Nice continental breakfast with various pastries, juice and coffee. Almost like a bed and breakfast. Staff was very nice and helpful.

We didn't like Portland so we cancelled our reservations and left. Now we had no place to stay. 2 days left on our vacation, we decided to see New Hampshire, we were vacationing in Maine. After staying at The Port Inn in Kennebunk, which we loved, we decided to call from our cell phone The Port Inn In New Hampshire! So glad we did. They were very accommodating. They gave us a room that day for 2 nights at a great rate, and was awaiting our arrival. This place & grounds are very clean. The rooms are very cozy, Flat screen TV, nice clean heated pool with new furniture, friendly & courteous front desk staff. Breakfast was standard and good for continental. Cookies, coffee, & ice water in the afternoon. Right down the road is a Liquor warehouse/store with great prices and NO TAX. Portsmouth has so much to offer and The Port Inn is close to everything at a value price.

I spent only one night here while on business in the area. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. As others have noted, there was no noise from the nearby highway. Continental breakfast was good: organic coffee, pastries and bagels, yogurt, etc. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Call the hotel directly for a reservation. If you are a business traveler, be sure to say so.

Very helpful and knowledgeable staff; clean, comfortable room at a good rate.
We will definitely stay here again and recommend without hesitation. A change from the chains I usually stay in, with nice décor and good shower.

This is a nice Inn for the price. Our room was very nice and comfortable. There is a little construction on the way to downtown Portsmouth, which is a short distance away. Good coffee, very nice staff.

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.
