We always stay here when we’re in the area. It’s close to everything, quiet and very accommodating. Staff is helpful and pleasant and the breakfast has improved greatly! Asked for a pet friendly room on in the lower level. King sized bed was the best of a 1900 mile journey. In fact, it was all the best! And the sheets were NOT microfiber. Blessings! On all of you at Port Inn for making our overnight so very comfortable.

We were allowed to check in 2.5 hours early. Checkin and checkout were easy. The room was surprisingly large and very clean. They said there was a microwave in the room. Not only was there a microwave, but also a dorm size fridge, twin hot plates, a sink, plates, glasses, and silverware. This was perfect because it is winter and we have a German Shepherd, so most of our meals were eaten in the room. Plenty of area to walk the dog. The Roundabout diner is less than 1 mile away. Great room. Thank you.

What a lovely dog friendly hotel! While it wasn’t the fanciest (baked goods are pre-packaged, likely due to COVID), everything was clean, eco-conscious, and incredibly thoughtful about how to make the experience a pleasure for our furry friends who might need a little extra care. Beds were comfortable, bathroom amenities smelled good. We didn’t have the chance to explore the neighborhood, so I can’t speak to how walkable it is for cafes and such, but my dog was plenty happy to wander and sniff. Lots of dog friendly places near by. We’d d gladly stay here again!

From the pictures on the website, it seems this hotel is nestled among a wooded area. Unfortunately, it is located on a busy highway right off the interstate. This is a motel off of the freeway, next to two car dealerships and across from a liquor store. This is not a hotel (though it says an "Ascend Hotel collection member - whatever that means), There is a convenient parking lot in front of the rooms and a good size pool around back (depending on your room location). Continental breakfast was merely “Pack and Go” because of COVID-19 restrictions, so you were limited to packaged goods (muffins, danishes, cereal, coffee & tea). I discovered thou many options for a great breakfast within minutes of the motel. If you’re considering this place, please do your homework. I found better and cheaper options closer to the downtown area of Portsmouth, which is a destination for many. In my experience, we thought we reserved a large suite with two Queen size beds and charged accordingly, but was given a smaller room with just two Full-size beds. I was told that their website managed by their corporate ownership displays incorrect information about offerings. Because of this downsized room, I had to reserve and place a family member in the Marriott next door at half the price with a King size bed. Ask for a room away from the corners of the property and away from the busy highway and noisy car dealerships (across the street). At our time there, there wasn’t a functioning ice machine so you need to purchase and provide your own ice for beverages.

Surprisingly expensive at $227/night, this was really just a roadside motel with many long term residents. We had several rooms: 2 of them in the front section were very tight. 1 in the back section with kitchen and king bed was good size. The rooms were clean but had a musty smell. Several of the long term residents were always hanging out outside their rooms smoking and watching our comings and goings. The front desk staff were very helpful, especially Ron, who went out of his way to please. I liked the food available most of the day at reception: fruit, drinks, cereal, coffee etc. There was a convenience to this place especially during COVID in that you didn’t have to share air or elevators or common spaces with anyone. You could drive right up to your room and use your own door- and even bring your dog! Free parking is also a plus, unlike downtown Portsmouth. If you want history and character, go downtown. For convenience this will do ok.

First, this a MOTEL not a hotel. It is not the place that's pictured on the website AT ALL. The room we had was tiny and very very dark. The bathroom was literally the size of closet. From the window in our room if you could stretch and look over the cement wall, you were looking at the car dealership across the street.

The lobby does not always have someone there so some days if you check in after 4pm you have to call someone (I think some evenings are 8pm).

We paid full rate for our room which is priced like a nice hotel in that area. I would have been better at Quality Inn that costs less and doesn't pretend it something its not.

The "free breakfast" was coffee, juice, fruit and various muffins wrapped up. We didn't partake in it but that isn't want most hotels, that charges these prices, call breakfast, even during COVID.

The only reason this isn't a 1 is that the receptionist gentleman when we check in was nice and told us they didn't have any other rooms. It seemed clean too.

We heard people walking over us at 3am and different times.

Unless you're active walkers, which we are, this is not walking distance to the center of Portsmouth.

Hair in the sheets of the bed and on the pillow cases which I had not been on, I only noticed when I was about to crawl into bed for the night. Advertised as a beautiful motel with a pool, however the pool was closed when I got there (which was not mentioned when booking the room). Had I known, I would have gone somewhere else that had a pool, as this was the main selling point for us. Mold in the ice machine. Dirty black handprints on the walls of my room. Fridge in my room was broken- freezer would not shut, and the door kept falling off. Bugs in the bathroom. Door to the room had several metal pieces nailed onto it, making me believe it has been broken into before. Man sitting outside of our room in his car smoking when we got there, when we left for dinner, and when we returned from dinner- which gave us an unsettling feeling as he was right in front of our window (and making us breathe in smoke).
Despite all of this, we looked past it and decided to make the best of it by going downtown Portsmouth for dinner. The uber said to us, "I would not recommend this place to my worse enemy." When we got back to the room, we were going to go to bed, which is when we saw the hair in our beds, and that was our final straw. The front desk employee was rude beyond words and refused to give us another room or our money back. We had not been in the room enough to use it, as we dropped our stuff off and left (and didn't even utilize the pool because it was closed), yet they refused to give our money back and were VERY rude on top of it all. So, at 11pm, we had to drive an hour back to our house because we had no where else to sleep. Our little getaway turned into a disaster, and costs us several hundred dollars for nothing.
Overall: rude service, false advertising (no functional pool, gross rooms, moldy utilities), used sheets that had not been changed, and rude employees.
Save your money and a headache, and just go somewhere else. Sleeping in my car would be a better option than sleeping in this motel.

Although your feed back is greatly appreciated, I am terribly sorry for your inconvenience. It is not our practice to have rude staff, nor hair or dirt in our guest rooms. I'm not sure why you were not able to change your room but I can assure you our property is a welcoming safe and clean environment. Please come for a return visit so that I may show you a pleasant getaway. You may ask for me personally. Sincerely, Adele

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a night to be close to town. I was told on the phone it’s a 15 minute walk to downtown, turned out we had to drive because the walk is across a highway and 30 minutes.
It is not an inn, it is a motel. A gross one at that. Extremely small and cramped. The bathroom is the size of a small closet and the pool is the size of a hot tub.
All in all, this place is so outdated and so not worth the price they charge.
Next time I come I will be spending the extra $ to stay in downtown at an actual hotel

If you judge the Port Inn as a Motel, it gets a solid 3-3.5 stars. It's clean and the rooms are spacious. With that said, we were initially placed in a room that smelled badly of smoke. The front desk staff was happy to move us to another room without a smoke smell, but this room did smell musty. The breakfast assortment was solid but it was not properly set up during our visit - no juice, waffle batter and luke warm coffee. Port Inn is a decent choice for $100 or less all-in. Anything more than that and you are paying too much.

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review of our property. I am sorry your room smelled of smoke. All our rooms are smoke free, unfortunately some people do not adhere to the rules but if we are told then we at least have a chance to ionize the room for our future guests. Kind regards, Adele

The staff on check in and during the stay were very helpful, particularly on Saturday night when we had some difficulties with our door locks. A young guy on reception was especially welcoming and professional during the weekend.
We arrived at Port Inn and Suites Portsmouth just before 17.00. Check in was pretty straight forward and we were given our two rooms beside each other at the right hand corner of the motel. The walls are pretty thin, if you talked loud enough in one room the other one will hear you.
The rooms were on the smaller size but comfortable. The beds were comfy and it was pretty quiet and that’s what matters. The bathroom was also small but I quite liked the bath regardless. The air con units in the rooms were powerful. If you wanted it cold it was cold and if you wanted it hot it was roasting.
Breakfast was on the basic side but it did the job. My sister especially enjoyed the waffle maker.
The location of the Port Inn was actually pretty great. We drove in on the first night but realised on the following two that walking was very doable. You could get into town in 30 minutes on foot, which we did on Saturday and Sunday after enjoying a few alcoholic beverages in town.
The Port Inn ticks the boxes and it’s a good shout if you’re in Portsmouth for a weekend.

Hello Becky! Our pool is open for the season and is heated to 80 degrees. Our pool hours are 9am-10pm daily. You’re close to a wealth of things to do in Portsmouth when you stay at The Port Inn. We're 1.2 miles from the boutique shops and award-winning restaurants in downtown Portsmouth and a 5 minute drive to the Kittery Outlets.We hope to see you soon!
