“Nice & Convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

A cozy & quiet little spot right off RT 95. Very polite staff. Extremely comfortable beds. Would stay again especially for the price. About 6 minutes from downtown Portsmouth. Breakfast wasn't bad but also wasn't the best but it was simple.

We stayed at the Port Inn Nov 9th -11th for a weekend getaway in Portsmouth. The room was quiet and clean This hotel is located right of the highway and about 20 minute walk to downtown Portsmouth. We had a great experience when Cody, the desk clerk, got us a reservation for dinner at a nice restaurant during a busy restaurant week. Skip was loaded with knowledge about Portsmouth, directions and helpful hints about things to see. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We did not have reservations for a hotel on our recent sight seeing trip up the coast from Boston. We were looking for something reasonable, not too fancy. This was perfect. The employees were friendly, check in was easy and the room was clean and quiet. The guy working at the front desk suggested a Mexican restauraunt called Agave in Portsmouth which was excellent. I do have to say that the continental breakfast offered was nothing to write home about and left us wanting a real breakfast

I stayed at the Port Inn with my mom while visiting a friend at UNH. The room (104) was SPOTLESS and very comfortable. Amenities were perfect, not too little or too much--great TV (with remote instructions!), desk with comfy chair, iron, microwave, fridge. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was large and well appointed. Front desk staff were accommodating but speedy without being brusque. Continental breakfast was fine--good coffee.

The only complaint I have is that it is far away from Portsmouth. Of course that is what it is, but if I went to visit Portsmouth again I would probably stay a little closer to downtown.

We received a warm welcome on arrival after a tiring journey from the UK. Our room was nicely furnished, clean and warm. The weather was great for the time of year, so we walked to downtown to sample the first lobsters of our trip. The people on reception were always willing and able to help and offer local advice. We'll stay at the Port Inn again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

The room was nice and clean. We were located in a corner unit and it was surprisingly quiet considering the place is off a 4 lane by-pass. Little to no traffic noise.

Breakfast is a carb-fest with breads, sweets, bagels, even a gluten free option for those following the latest fad.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed nice. Scramble parking.
