My wife and stayed there on Saturday the 4th of July. The room was nice and about what I'd expect. Not the Ritz, not the Ritz price either! Pool and the grounds were clean. The place was packed all weekend with boats. Only beef was that the wireless internet was not working too well.

We read the reviews and were a bit skeptical about reserving a room for our Father's Day family weekend. Taking a chance on getting a room, we waited until we got to the hotel and saw it first hand. The outside looked like an old hotel that had been let go for awhile, however looks are deceiving. After putting Marsha (I think that was her name) through a devil of a time getting the right rooms, we found a very comfortable and large room that had the most spectacular view of the river from the balcony.

No, it wasn't a four star hotel, but anyone expecting that for less than $100.00 a night probably hasn't stayed at many motels. The staff, everyone of them, were courteous, helpful, and made us feel wanted. The pool needed a paint job, but it was clean and it was BIG.

We have already recommended the Port to our friends, and are making plans to go back soon. My heartfelt thanks to all the employees for all they did to make our weekend great.

My wife and I meet up with her sister and husband, my sister and husband and her mother mother and step father (4 children under 10). The hotel is old but the door locks work and the water runs! lol our room faced the out dated, but clean pool. the back porch had a view and access to the boat ramp and dock. This was good because i parked my boat right behind the room. Everything was clean just old! what do you expect for $65 a night. There was no fridge or microwave in the room and the remote didn't work in our room. The wife said that was fine because i could just change the channel for her. The people at the desck were friendly. the manager was real pleasant and had no problem giving us a late check out. all in all the atomosphere was great. The Ale house wings were good! The people staying there were very friendly. We will definitely stay there again.

Rather than being clever I'll just say we checked in and thirty minutes later we checked out. This place is a total waste of what has got to be a valuable piece of property.
However, the tour that launched from there was great, just stay somewhere else, please!

This hotel is disgusting! Elvis left that building and took the cleanliness with him! the view is great but not worth it! the pool was extremly dirty!
you should spend a couple extra dollars and get a clean room and a nice pool.

This "Hotel" is ............ what you pay for. We stayed for $80 a night plus tax. The room was clean, had a microwave and fridge. We we're for warned but we didn't mind. If you own a boat or love to dive this place is perfect. We were able to tie our boat right at the marina over night. We did bring our own pillows, sheets, comforter, and towels. We just didn't know what to expect. We arrived early in the morning of the day of check in, met with Marge, she was wonderful. We were able to drop in the water and park our truck & trailer right there in their huge parking lot. We didn't have the greatest weather and got soaked (not their fault!). We returned way before our check in time and Marge let us have the key to our room which was being cleaned when we entered it. The lady cleaning the room was nice as well and she worked around us while we tried to dry off. The shower was GREAT! I'm sure my husband loved it, it was so strong I was afraid it would wash the color right out of my hair! For what The Port Hotel lacks it makes up in other ways. If you can over look some of the comforts, its a great place to crash after a long day of playing in the sun, especially if you live a few hours inland and want to stay by the ocean reasonably . Oh one last thing............bring a candle.
