Sitting at the junction of Route 1 and the road into the small and pretty town of Portsmouth the Port Inn is well placed for access to the Interstate and also for a 20 minute walk to the centre of Portsmouth. The room was very comfortable with 2 queen size beds and a spacious bathroom with very good shower over... More

We usually stay at Hilton chains, but there were none available and this is part of the Choice Hotel chain (so I get points)! It is a motel type setup. You enter your room from the outside and may park in front of your room. I like this easy in and out. The room was clean. The complimentary toiletries were... More

Just passing through on our way to Boston and had a great stay at Port Inn. Good wifi, clean, cute and comfy room, continental breakfast, 24 hour desk, helpful staff. Why stay at a chain when this is better!

We chose this hotel because we were hoping for big city hotel services without big city prices. What we never expected was the warm, personal feeling we received from all of the staff. Everyone at the front desk doubles as a knowledgable concierge. Steve, manager and Portsmotuh native, gave us wonderful recommendations for restaurants including some frequented mainly by locals....

I booked this Hotel for a weekend because we had a wedding in Dover. The hotel is super conveniently located near the highway for easy access (but far enough away to not be overwhelming). It was about a 5 -7 minute car ride to Downtown Portsmouth and there were plenty of Ubers available for rides all over. The rooms were... More

We had wonderful stay at this Inn. The room was lovely and large. I did not know what to expect from the motel type arrangement but was not disappointed at all.

Dear Molly A: I am so glad you reviewed our hotel, and I am grateful for all the compliments. I just want to let you and the Trip Advisor community know that the pillows on the beds are 50% down and 50% feather. Because pillow comfort is quite subjective, we keep synthetic pillows in the closet of every guest room,... More
