The Port Hotel Inn
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2017

This was our second visit to Port Washington and this was the best visit so far. We stayed at the Holiday Inn our first visit and were greatly disappointed by our room location and the upkeep of the property. So, we decided to stay at the The Port Hotel and had a wonderful stay. What a beautiful gem in the town of Port Washington. The hotel staff was amazing and the restaurant brunch cannot be beat. The homemade items on the buffet were plentiful and delicious. I would highly recommend you to try the hotel and stay for the food. The bed was so comfortable that it was difficult to leave the room. Very clean and very very quiet. A must visit...you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: If walking stairs is a problem - opt for a room on the second floor.

What a find. I used to stay at the Holiday Inn in Port Washington, but no more. I felt like I was staying at a 5 star New York hotel. The hotel is small, but the rooms are a nice size. Big, renovated, top quality bathrooms, comfortable beds, and on top of all this,,,,,,,,,,,, breakfast in your room is included! I chose french toast with apples and blueberries, and maple syrup. How good is this, it felt very European. The only downside was I had to walk up 2 flights of stairs. I would highly recommend. Rooms were reasonably priced.

This place was great. I can not wait to visit again. I stayed one night, with several friends, in several rooms. My room had a view of Lake Michigan. Kate was great to work with and met all of our needs. We were able to park our bicycles in the basement over night. The hotel bar is fantastic, DON'T MISS OUT ON THEIR HAPPY HOUR! The rooms were very clean and welcoming. I highly recommend this place and would stay at the Port Hotel again in a heart beat.

Room Tip: 306 is very spacious and has a whirlpool tub.

We felt right at home. We splurged for room 306 which included a fireplace & whirlpool bath. Those things certainly affected our positive opinion on the room! The bed was comfy. The shower was great (spacious, great water pressure and plenty of hot water- the perfect shower trifecta). The free breakfast options were outstanding. You could pay a for other options but there is no need because the free options are excellent and delicious. The room had DirecTV, but the TV itself was ancient and not a high def flat screen. That fits the quaint theme of the room but for the price they could upgrade the quality of the TVs. But that's a nitpick because we only watched it right before bed. Service was fast and friendly. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: 306 is worth the extra money for the whirlpool bath. But if stairs are an issue for you, stick with...

I just want to say on behalf of my Wife Jane and I, what an awesome time we had here, it was quiet, comfortable, clean and convenient, We stayed in room 303 and it was perfect, it met all of our needs, it has a big queen bed, a desk and chair, big bathroom and very large shower, all of the staff are very friendly and helpful when we saw them, we had breakfast delivered to our room, it was prepared perfectly, delivered on time by a very friendly delivery guy, we will return, hopefully people do not find out about this little gem of a hotel in Port Washington WI.

Place feels dated,very nice appearance,however the food and service need updating. Only two couples and service wait for waitress was ridiculous. And serving cokes in the 8oz glass full of ice then charging per soda? Found out on my second,because " nothing's free"? Her tip was. Food tasted microwaved,small portions. Slow and bad,first and last visit

We visited the Port Hotel in late March 2017. My wife and I were in room 301, very nice accommodations. Room was good sized for a hundred year old hotel. Very nice bathroom with stand up shower and all the niceties of a bed and breakfast.

We had a drink in the bar upon arrival around 6pm on a Friday. No happy hour on Friday but that was ok. Bartender Mike was very nice, explained a few beers to us that were not familiar. Bar snacks in a basket on the bar was a great touch. We did not stay for dinner at the hotel but quite a few people were and I heard it was very nice.

The breakfast is the big winner. We ordered via a door tag when we arrived. There are breakfasts included with the room rate or you can order more for a charge. My wife had the yogurt, granola, fresh fruit, muffin option. She enjoyed it all. I had the chocolate chip pancakes. They were WONDERFUL. Arrived right on time at 7:30 as selected. Big tray with the food, utensils, water, coffee, cream, sugar, butter for muffin. All was brought into the room and we left it on the tray stand and ate in bed. Perfect breakfast.
We enjoyed our stay at the Port Hotel Inn and will come back.
