“Great hotel at reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2007

Traveling by car for l4 hours, we wanted to have a goal of where to stay that would be a good value for the money. The pictures on the websight looked too good to be true but in reality The Port was decorated in a lovely way. We arrived at l0 p.m. and yet were warmly welcomed by the owner. Our room was in perfect condtion and beautifully decorated with top quality bedding. Our room even had a kitchenette that we did not have time to use but it was nice to know about should we return to the area. Good easy chair, table and chairs to drink coffee at. Everything was in good working condition. A generous continental breakfast was served with a nice variety. The staff was very helpful. The reviews more than lived up to the actual description. We can strongly recommend that you don't pass up The Port should you be in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

We stayed at the Port Inn for three nights the end of March. They had a special two night "shopping'pkg for $149, including a gift basket of wine, cheese, candy, and coupons, plus we stayed a third night at the AAA rate of $80. Compared to all the other accommodations in the area, this was a bargain.

The Inn was centrally located - about 10 minutes to downtown Portsmouth, and very close to Kittery Maine for outlet shopping. We were not happy with the location of the room when we checked in - in the front by the main intersection. We were concerned it would be noisy. The staff said that it would not be noisy, but were more than happy to move us to a location in the back. They were extremely accommodating. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. The only complaint was that the bathroom was extremely small - but that was minor. Everything else in the room was fine.


They had a complimentary breakfast - coffee, muffins, danish, juice - we just had their juice and went to one of the many coffee cafes in downtown Portsmouth that we really enjoyed.

I would highly recommend staying here and if we visit Portsmouth again in the future, we will have no hesitation staying at the Port Inn again.

We made the reservation via the phone, the guy was very polite and explained us about the package.
We arrived the Port Inn a little late due to severe snow storm but the receptionist was very nice and made our check in very smooth.
Clean and pretty room, bathroom is neat and clean.
The complimentary wireless internet was great...the location is very convenient...
We will stay there again...

My wife and I were in Portsmouth on a brief holiday, and were very pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of the room. The owners and the staff were pleasant and helpful. The location on the Portsmouth Circle is convenient, but not so close to the interstate that it was noisy. Everything was as it should be, and we will definitely return on our next trip to the area. There is no better value in the Portsmouth area.

My family and I vacationed in New England in November and stayed at The Port Inn. We were looking for a hotel that was convenient to both Portsmouth, NH and Kittery, ME and we found exactly that in this quiet hotel.

Upon our arrival we found ourselves checked in to a charming New England-style Inn whose lobby contains a lovely sitting area complete with a fireplace and rocking chairs. We were delighted with the immaculately clean rooms; decorated with deep colors, beautiful pictures of local scenery, fluffy pillows, and thick, comfortable bedding we quickly made ourselves very much at home.

To complement this wonderful environment was an attentive, courteous staff who was always ready with a warm welcome and an offer of any assistance needed.

We woke up daily to a generous Continental breakfast beutifully presented in the lobby's sitting room where a fired burned to ward off the New England chill - especially appreciated by these vacationing Floridians!

A thouroughly enjoyable time was had by the whole family - from the youngest of us at twelve to the grandparents. We will definately be staying at The Port Inn on our return trips.

  • Liked — Clean, Clean, Clean... Quiet, convenient to Portsmouth & Kittery, lovely decor.
  • Disliked — Nothing - we had no complaints or suggestions for improvements.
  • Tips/Secrets — Ask to stay in the 100 range rooms convenient to the charming lobby with fireplace & rockers.

We enjoyed the motel from the moment we arrived! It was clean, updated, and had a friendly staff. If we were to return to Portsmouth, I would return to the Port Inn in an instant.

  • Liked — The room size was large and comfortable
  • Disliked — That we only stayed one night!

The inn is easy to find and close to the highway. The rooms are decorated nicely, very quiet and the bathroom was one of the nicer ones I've seen! The staff is very friendly and make you feel comfortable.
