“Off the beaten path & cottages are dog friendly!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

The main reason we stopped in Port St. Joe, unlike alot of Florida, this county has dog friendly beaches!
We enjoyed our 3 nights in the cottages. New buildings, rooms & decor bright & airy, lovely linens.
Nice breakfast served in the Thirsty Goat for small additional charge, a short walk from the cottages. Walking distance to Main St.,restaurants on the water & parks. Only suggestion we have for the cottages, a glass or screen door on the front door would be nice way to make the front porch more user friendly.

Our stay at the Port Inn was perfect for a short weekend trip. Upon arrival Connie was on duty. She happen to be the same person I spoke with when I needed to upgrade my room. She not only remembered who I was but was so helpful and personable. I can't remember the last time a Hotel Attendant has been so personable. She made us feel welcomed and that if we had any questions we could ask! The Thirsty Goat breakfast staff was pleasant and the food was good. I will definitely stay again. Thank you Connie for excellent customer service!

We once again enjoyed staying here yesterday. The staff is always so nice, it is so clean, and has a wonderful location. The price is very good and it is just a perfect place to stay. We plan to stay in the cottages next time we come in the summer. We also love the Thirsty Goat Restaurant which is also on the premises. The bikes are also fun to ride, enjoy your stay here!

Stayed at the new cottages during a weekened fishing trip, they are recently constructed, very clean and perfect for a family. We were visiting with friends and had plenty of room to park 2 boats (two cottages)and they had a hose etc. to allow for boat wash down. Staff was very helpful at check in and during our stay. As these are not hotel rooms don't expect daily cleaning or towel replacement. Units have a small kitchen and washer & dryer. The room includes breakfast, was typical for included breakfast, seems to be a little unorganized/slow if you happen to be there when there are more than a few guests at one time. Breakfast cook/attendant was very helpful but was trying to keep breakfast buffet stocked as well as replenish coffee/juices and cook to order as well. Will stay here again.

I drove through Port St. Joe on my way to Ocala, Florida, and saw the Port Inn. I decided to stop and spend the night. This was a very nice hotel with a modest price, well worth the money. The staff was very friendly and offered their suggestions for a good meal. Just down the street across from the Inn was a very good seafood restaurant. It was just the right kind of place for a weary traveler. My room was nicely decorated, the bed was comfortable, and the price was right! What else is there to say.

Room Tip: You might want to ask for a room in the rear of the hotel, as it sits right on the street.

The Port Inn is a place that I always wanted to check out but we typically stay in Apalach.... This year we decided to "shake it up a bit" and at the last minute on we stop in to see if they had a room available - fortunately they did and we spent our 33rd anniversary at the Port Inn....late lunch at Peppers, and finished the night with live music at the "Thirsty Goat" made new friends and memories. We ended up staying 2 nights.....
