“very nice place”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Very nice place indeed, conveniently located right off I-295 and on Route 1, few miles south of Freeport downtown. Personnel is very friendly and helpful, rooms are spacious and very nice, bed is super comfotable. Overall the only minor set back was wi-fi connection, a little whimsical at times, but definitely something I can live with!

This xmas, my family and I were visiting New England, sleeping every night somewhere else. The Port Inn really impressed us in providing us so much for such a reasonable price. And the staff was very hospitable, helpful and kind. The atmosphere is cozy. The room has everything you need (even an iron table).

Highly advisable, if your are "on the road". We will stay here again if we are "in the area" (but we live in Madrid, so when...?).

This past weekend was the first time I had ever stayed in Portsmouth. I was shocked to see how cheap it was, especially since it was over New Year's Eve! I stayed with one other adult and found a coupon, making our room with a king size bed only $79/night! The staff at the front desk were very accommodating to our needs (when we first checked in, we were given a room with two twin beds, when I had requested a room with a king size bed. The gentleman at the front desk immediately changed our room). Prior to our stay, we were given information about setting up a cab for NYE and was told we would have wireless internet access in our room.

The only issue I found with The Port Inn was the wireless internet. I don't know if it was because we were staying behind the main building, but the internet was extremely slow and would disconnect frequently.

However, it was extremely clean and VERY easy to get to. It is right off the highway, about an hour north of Boston. Will absolutely stay here again!

Stayed one night and found the hotel just average. Room had a Queen bed with kitchen facilities, rubbish bin had not been emptied just an average clean.
Our room was at the back, our sleep was disturbed due to people coming and going most of the night I presume they were in the room next door.
If you want to dine or visit Portsmouth it is best to drive. Basic breakfast which is best taken back to your room to eat.
If I ever returned to Portsmouth I would pick a hotel.

Have been staying here off and on since 1984(!). My only gripe is minor - on one visit our room in the back building smelled overwhelmingly of cleaner. Ironically, the inside of the microwave was filthy. A little attention to detail by housekeeping obviously in order. But these are small grievances - I would still recommend this hotel.
Even when not staying here I was impressed. During a visit to another not-so-well appointed nearby chain hotel on our way to Boston on a blazing hot weekend in September 97 we asked and were permitted to use the Port Inn pool @ no charge even after offering to pay.
The front desk staff have always recommended great restaurants as well.

Pluses :
The room was roomy!
And well appointed; while we didn't use the fridge and microwave they are obviously an advantage to have in your accommodations.
The desk staff were very pleasant and helpful.
Excellent value where inexpensive does not mean cheap!

Minuses :
It was a little noisy with road traffic.
The quality of the continental breakfast was disappointing and it was not really suitable to eat it in the foyer lounge area with it perched on your lap.

My husband and I decided to stay here for our anniversary to get away. The hotel was exactly what the website said and the pictures looked like. Which isn't always the case with hotels. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We had a great stay and would come back again.
