Great one-night getaway

My husband and I love spending time in Portsmouth but don't always want to pay for the expensive hotels within walking distance to the shops, restaurants, etc. The Port Inn was a really quick and easy drive, and we were both pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness of the room, the warm and friendly welcome we got upon our arrival and the friendliness displayed by every employee we encountered. We just really felt welcomed and will definitely be going back!

Friendly Staff and Pet Friendly

The staff here is beyond friendly and accommodating and they are well set up for people with pets. Not fancy, but very clean and comfortable. It's about a mile and a quarter walk to downtown Portsmouth so it will be driving distance for most people, but it's nice to know that you CAN walk home if you partake a bit too much in the great beer scene! Free parking too, so it's a perfect place for bargain hunters who don't want to pay the premium to be right downtown. And again, I can't emphasize enough how friendly and helpful the staff was. I'm not talking about fake Walmart greeter friendly, I'm talking about genuinely friendly.

Great place/location

My fiance & I came here for a long weekend getaway (Saturday-Monday). Skip was great as soon as we arrived. He helped us get a cab (only $6 to downtown Portsmouth) that Saturday night. The breakfast in the AM was much better than your average continental (which I was excited about). The room was clean and we were happy there was a mini fridge and microwave. Great experience there!

Excellent Pet Friendly Hotel

The staff here is absolutely amazing. I spoke to three separate people during our one night stay and all were beyond friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean, the beds are comfy, the water was hot, and the free wireless was fast and easy to connect to. Good continental breakfast too. And it is literally a 1 mile walk to downtown Portsmouth, so if you are so inclined you don't have to drive, and a cab ride would be extremely cheap if walking's not your thing but you still want to freely sample some of the many great bars downtown. It's located right on a rotary but it's generally pretty quiet. If you are the type of person who needs absolute silence for sleeping then you might want to ask for a room in the back since you can just hear the highway from the front rooms. They are truly pet friendly as well. You pay a simple $20 fee for your pet and otherwise there are no restrictions apart from what common sense would suggest. They have a small, designated, area in the back with dog bags and a trash can to make things easy while also making sure the general hotel grounds are safe from dog bombs. Just a great hotel and it will now be our go to choice when we stay in Portsmouth. It's obviously not quite as perfect as staying right in the heart of downtown, but it's more than worth it for the huge savings over the Sheraton and other downtown hotels.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

If you are remotely interested in beer, make sure to check out Earth Eagle Brewery in downtown Portsmouth. They have some of the most unique and oddball beers you've ever tried and it's a great space to boot.

Port Inn stay

Welcoming staff, clean rooms-a little cramped but doable. Easy cab ride to the downtown!

nice quiet place

Just stayed a night here but it was a pleasant experience, I anticipated the proximaty to the road would be very noisy but it was very quiet. The morning breakfast offerings were plentiful and fresh, although the scrambled eggs were awful. Staff was very helpful and friendly.
