    Perfect stay!

    We enjoyed the location close to highway and center city. Property is well kept and our dog was warmly welcomed with nice accommodation. Will return again soon.

    Very Dog Friendly

    Our little dorkie wanted a getaway in the Portsmouth NH area so we tried the Port Inn for two nights. It is winter time so the motel did not resemble the alluring pictures with the pool. We stayed in room 112 which was right next to the well appointed reception area. Each room is accessed from the outside (like the old days) and we seemed to have the only room in the front building that used a traditional key. The other rooms appeared to use key cards. The lock served its purpose and there was a chain but no deadbolt. The room was clean and had enough room for the three of us, some parts of the room showed wear more than others and parking was a little tight in front of the building.

    The motel is located very close to Route 1 bypass so we experienced a great deal of rood noise. Our doxie is a fantastic alerter so any noises he heard yielded a bark or two. Would suggest to keep this in mind if your dog alerts and is protective. There appeared to be a building in the back farther from the road, this might be an option to reduce the road sounds. The breakfast was good and each staff person we encountered was engaging, helpful and dog friendly.

    Had problems

    Ron had spiders and we were charged twice. Booked through BringFido and was also charged again at check-in time. Still waiting on the refund for the overcharge.

    Good Stop But ...

    The rooms at the Port Inn are great. The location is very convenient when traveling on 95. There is a quiet side street that is perfect for a decent walk. However, be warned that, at least at the moment (covid labor shortage?), the office is only open from 8am until 10pm. There is no access to breakfast until the office opens. So, if you need to get going in the morning, be sure you make other plans to eat.

    What we needed

    Place was what we needed for a short stay. Was not too far from the main town. Really good from a dog perspective and worked well for us.

    Great Location and clean

    Lovely room, easy access by car to everything. We brought our dog and felt welcome. The only thing that should be improved is the chain lock on the door. It was not attached securely. It should be a deadbolt!

    I’ve stayed in a lot of dog-friendly hotels, and Port Inn was one of the best. Clean,
    Comfortable, nice grassy area for the dogs. Convenient to downtown Portsmouth, Kittery outlets, and Exeter. Friendly staff. Will def be coming back.

    Perfect place!

    I have a REALLY big dog, but the accommodations where perfect. The location was right near everything we needed. The other guests were so friendly and we had a 'grab and go' breakfast which was so good! I will definitely be staying there again!
