Beautiful setting and an amazing staff!!! We look forward to our next opportunity to stay there! The pool is a nice touch too!

The young lady at the desk was very informative in helping find a restaurant that suited my food preference and followed up with directions to the restaurant.

I was visiting my son who is in Portsmouth. The hotel was a great location, rooms were clean, location was good.

Quiet and clean rooms, comfortable beds, nice and friendly staff and good amenities including starbucks coffee in the rooms and hot and cold complimentary breakfast. I requested a fan and one of the owners made a special trip to the storage room to find one for me. Fortunately, he found one as he would have gone to the store to buy one for me! I definitely recommend this hotel!

We needed a last minute stop at a reasonable price for 2 nights, nothing to complain about. It was basic, but clean, and roomy, quiet. All you need for a decent night.

I went here with a friend for a beach overnight. Our room was excellent. Comfortable furnishings, well supplied attractive bathroom, and a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. A heated outdoor pool was a welcome extra to relax in after a busy day. The breakfast was well above average, the staff was always accommodating. I'm looking forward to returning here.

We had a wonderful stay at The Port Inn. The staff was extremely friendly, and we loved that it was dog friendly so we could bring our dog.

overall good stay,close to many beaches,shops ,outlets ,nightlife ect, kinda central to these places,staff at hotel great,breakfast ok not great not bad though,pool nice would stay here again.

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!

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!

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.

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

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.
