Even before our arrival, we called and met Megan on the phone. She warmly assured us that our room would be available, despite our later than expected arrival. When we met her, she did not alter that evaluation. Her customer service skills are perfect. We met Steven in the morning and he was helpful and kind as we checked out.

Our area included two bedrooms that were adjoining and which shared a bathroom with a door to each bedroom. It was more room than we needed but would be perfect for a family.

The bed was very comfortable and we had a great night's rest. In the morning we had make-your-own waffles with many toppings available. There was also fresh fruit in addition to the hard boiled eggs and cereals.

This is truly a lovely place and I am so glad we found it here on Trip Advisor.

Room Tip: We had room 117 and it actually had two adjoining bedrooms.

On our travels, unless we're staying at a luxurious resort, we choose an overnight motel or hotel for location, quiet, comfort, cleanliness and value. Port Inn in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, checked all the boxes. Located at 505 U.S. Highway 1 Bypass, convenient to the John Paul Jones and Rundlet-May houses, the 56-room establishment is a great place to rest and relax during your visit to historic Portsmouth. We chose a King Room with a king-sized bed and 32-inch flat screen HDTV, a spacious room, comfortable, clean, quiet, well-appointed. Add a friendly and helpful staff, an excellent complimentary continental breakfast and dry cleaning and laundry service (always a welcome bonus for travelers who are on the road for three or four weeks). Not to mention a good value. Everything you want to see is within walking distance or a short drive. After dinner, you can sit in the terrace garden, smell the salty ocean air and jot down notes for your TripAdvisor reviews. Oh, my wife reminds me that she loves the Starbucks coffee in the room. We definitely made a good choice.

Room Tip: At Port Inn, it's all about comfort and cleanliness and quiet and location

We stayed here a few nights as well traversed New England on our annual vacation. The Port Inn is a small, quaint, quiet place to relax at the end of your day. They welcomed us and made sure our small dog felt at home with dog treats and a dog bowl. Coffee, breakfast each morning was always welcomed. Just great place to stay if your in the Portsmouth, NH area.

I have stayed in Ascend Boutique hotels in various states and have never been disappointed. True to form, I was not disappointed.

First off, I enjoyed the convenience of parking in front of my room. I felt the area is safe enough to stay in a ground floor room. No problems at all. (Would I stay in a ground floor room in Dallas?? NO!)

The rooms are large enough to hold a queen size bed or two doubles. The queen bed is very comfortable and made with quality linens. The room has a nice flat screen television with a good assortment of channels.

The bathroom is nicely renovated with marble on the counters and which also surrounds the shower. The bathroom was spotless and was equipped with shampoo, conditioner and lotion. The linens are a nice, thick quality.

There is a coffee maker with Starbuck's coffee and assorted tea bags. The refrigerator and microwave are always handy.

The Port Inn offers a continental breakfast buffet in the small reception lobby. There is a computer and printer available for guests, also.

There is a nice, small pool area in a nicely landscaped area on the backside of the property.

Nice place to stay. Clean and convenient location to the beach. Steven the GM was very helpful and knowledgeable of the site seeing locations. Definitely coming back next year. The room was very clean. The bed was comfortable. The pets were quiet! Continental breakfast was fresh and delicious.

Great to drive-up to your room with exterior access, and enjoyed the outdoor pool that is heated and open until 10pm during high season reservations. Friendly staff that boosted my car the next morning after leaving the interior lights on all night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with pool view, or go for the large suite, second floor for 6 people.
