I was looking forward to staying here because of all the fantastic reviews on Tripadvisor. Overall, the room was spotless clean and the bed was very comfortable. The location was good as well. What we didn't like was the greeting we received when we walked into the reception area. The woman (I didn't get her name) who was behind the desk said, "I'm in the middle of a reservation and check inn is not until 3:00 p.m." So right a way, we were turned off. She proceeded to tell me that our friends had already been in and she told them the same thing she just told us. She seemed annoyed that we hadn't checked with them to find this out prior to us trying to check in. When we met up with our friends they said, "did you meet the not so nice woman behind the desk?" We told them we in fact did and we had discussed that we would not be writing such a great review for The Port Inn based on her unwelcome greeting. By the way, we did stop back in the office after lunch and the room was in fact ready. The woman who was there earlier was no longer at the front desk and the young boy that was there was extremely pleasant and in fact said to us that the room was ready.
