I know, I know - you've been holding your breath - but now you made it! The first entry is here. I arrived last Thursday night in Boston, after a boring, exhausting flight via Washington. When exactly did traveling stop being fun? Well, probably once the flights got so "cheap" and the airlines had to put in additional rows ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Port Inn Portsmouth
My 12 year old daughter and I stayed for the two-night "Shoppers Retreat" package, staying over Friday and Saturday nights. We were greeted on arrival by the first of several very pleasant and friendly staff and a lovely lobby. It was cold and snowing when we arrived and there was a wonderful fire in the lobby fireplace - very nice in the morning while enjoying the free breakfast. Our room was very nice, with the best part being the bathroom. Though not huge, it was gorgeous and spotless. The entire room and Inn are spotless - a very nice touch that I greatly appreciated. The Port Inn was easy to find and close to everything we wanted to see and do. We spent Saturday shopping in downtown and then Fox Run Mall, then headed to Kittery for the outlets Sunday. Great places to eat close by and I was able to get a good run in Sunday morning.
What a pleasant surprise!
We stayed here for a short trip. When we first arrived we realized the name was Port MOTOR Inn and was a little scared. But all the rooms are on a single level and cars are parked outside. The rooms and bath were spacious, extremely clean, and very modernly furnished. We had such an incredible stay here. The staff was genuinely friendly and impressed us very much. The complimentary breakfast was okay. I highly recommend Port Inn for travelers to New Hampshire and borderline Maine. The Inn is right next to the I95 and was an easy and quick ride to all nearby attractions for us.
Well, it started with the reservation making. I called at around 2am and reached a young lady who was actually chipper and alert! She helped me make my reservation, answered my questions and was very helpful with directions and suggestions. I didn't get her name, but that smiling voice was one of the reasons I decided to come to this Inn. Then we arrived. Skip checked us in, full of information. What a lovely welcome. The room was just the most beautiful I have seen! The beds are the most comfortable...and the bathroom. The room itself was more then worth the price, (check out the shower curtain!) but there was also a heated pool, a wonderful breakfast and the friendiest staff I have had the pleasure of knowing. Saturday morning brought two young ladies, Trich and Emily. (though I had to ask Emily her name, she was the only one not wearing a name tag, minor thing however) Trich was making sure the breakfast area stayed stocked, while Emily stayed behind the desk, but they would swithch or come and help the other out. These two worked so well together. They compliment each other, none of the 'this is my area' type thing. When I came in it was full, but everything was filled and clean. Sunday breakfast wasn't as well set, Trich wasn't on and the man on with Emily seemed to spend more time in the back then out helping her. The only off thing. We came in Sunday afternoon for directions to a restruant and were thrilled to find Trich there once again. She gave us straight forward directions. When we came in for tea that evening, she had hot water waiting for us. She even brought us extra towels that evening when we callled. And she was still there the next morning when we came in for another lovely breakfast. (does she ever go home?) When we left, Nora settled out bill...another smiling face who wished us well.
What a jewel of a place!
Such a sweet hotel! The rooms are beautifully appointed, with SUCH comfortable beds! High speed internet access is a plus. There was always coffee in the lobby as well as assorted teas and hot cocoa. A warm and helpful staff from the manager down to the housekeeping staff and maintenance guy who came to fix our stopped up drain.
The pool is lovely, heated and clean. There is a picnic area with grills located nearby the pool. A large continental breakfast that lasts for five whole hours!
Well worth the price to stay here. You feel like part of the family and are treated well.
Thank you to all the staff who made our stay so delightful!
My husband and I stayed at this Inn when we came to visit my sister and her family along with some friends of ours. It is a wonderful little place. The rooms all have amenities such as microwaves and refrigerators, irons and ironing board. My husband was thrilled with the high speed Internet access. And what a breakfast they have. It is continental, but with different breads, peanut butter, etc....and the young lady who was keeping it stocked that morning did so with the loveliest smile and such a patient and helpful nature with all the guest, particually the young ones. In fact, all the employees were friendly and helpful but Tricia and Skip were outstanding.
Stayed at the Inn in July 04. Wonderful experience. Very clean rooms and ground. Pool was great. Staff (esp. Noreen) were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. I am particularly picky when I travel and found this to be faultless. Would stay again if in the area. Thanks Port Inn, great job!
Very nice place to stay
We weren't expecting a lot when we made reservations at the Port Inn. You know how those places near the beach can be. But we were very pleasantly surprised. The inn is very well kept up -- very nice rooms, amiable staff. Only drawback is location -- it's on a busy highway. But we were able to ignore that successfully and would stay there again.
Great Staff and Great Location at great prices- totally feel like your at home when you are here!
Great stay, Nice Pool, Nice Rooms, Nice staff
The place was clean. The room was nice and clean. The staff was friendly. The pool was very nice. It is located outside of town, but there is resteraunts, liquor stores, and grocery stores nearby. The location is near major highways to get you to your destination quickly.
I was very satisfied with this place and I will definately book again.
