Rooms were not big but they were cozy, functional and clean. The access to the beach and the views were wonderful. We were there offl season and it was quiet. Very good room for the price paid. Enjoyable and the location is the best. The ocean view entry door and large ocean view window opened on to the access balcony so other guest are walking by your door and window. Definitely opt for the $ upcharge for the 2nd or 3rd floor; otherwise you will be looking directly into parked cars. But the ocean and beach are 100 yards away and that is where we wanted to be.
Location, price noisy rooms, thin walls.. Not good for sleeping in.
I loved being able to walk the beach without crowding of people and my balcony view was relaxing as I was able to hear the waves all night. I didn't like the fact I had to clean the refrigerator top as the ice tray was stuck to it and coffee was all over the ice tray. The toilet was sprayed but not cleaned. I wanted so badly to relax and take a bath, but the tub had not been cleaned and there was a white film ring around it. I am also glad I am not allergic to mold, as above the tub area there was an abundance of black mold. These areas may seem fine for others, however, I really needed some "Time off" from having to clean. Maybe if the hotel was busy and the cleaning crew was limited on time, but this was off season and not busy at all.
Perfect weekend getaway just a short drive from Boston. The ideal place to stay if you have kids. Pools, beaches, resteraunts, you name it! We had a blast and will definitely be back!!!
I liked the location and I prefer this resort during the winter. We were given a closer room to the indoor pool which was nice. employees were very nice and the room was very nice and clean, very comfortable. Great value for the money spent on the room. There were too many kids, and they were highly unsupervised jumping around, splashing us in the hot tub and horseplay. Apparently they only have one legal bartender and she was on maternity leave so none of the staff could sell us liquor so we went for beers only. Our room lock broke and we were locked out when we returned from the pool and it was snowing. We waited for the maintenance to open it which was fast and then we had to switch rooms around 9:30pm. All together I liked our visit but it was better the first time.
On site restaurant. Small bathroom
Location - right across the beach. Comfy, clean bedding. No internet access in room.
Room decoration, staff and where it is located The shower
This was a getaway for my birthday from my boyfriend, it was so beautiful. It is off season so none of the stores in town were open, but that was ok. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The hotel staff was great! The rooms were very clean. The pub was average. We went during the week so The Grill was not open and there was no breakfast served. Maybe they could at least do a continental breakfast?! Not having breakfast served during the week. Maybe just offer danish or muffins.
Lawn across street from hotel had adirondacks and lounge chairs to take in the picturesque view from above rocks overlooking cove, with partial view of ocean. the side yard to hotel property was lovely for outdoor wedding but also surrounded on two sides by the road and another by driveway. Off season this was a quiet and nice location but since road wrapping around property is public access and offers free views I cannot imagine it feeling private in season. i would not want to stay there with young children, the beach is a stones throw away (literally) but too far to watch them from above, and nothing to do for kids at the hotel--and yard also is. It family frienlru imho. However for couples this is a plus! Friendly and helpful staff and charming restaurant are additional positives.
the room and river scenery
Loved our stay! The view was beautiful from our room. Really enjoyed the breakfast too. Not your typical continental breakfast. We'll be back!
the view was nice the service was good rooms clean decent comp breakfast had to climb open outside stairs to get to room
The view crom the hotel over the marsh, the proximity to a clean sandy beach with rolling breakers and the comfort of the room. The fact that the hotel was on a main road, but the rooms are sufficiently laid back for that not to be a nuisance
The riverfront location and the fact they had kayaking available was a big draw for us. The location is great apart from some awkward (temporary) road construction in front which makes entering and exiting the parking area a bit dicey. The inn was just renovated and shows some updates, but some features definitely seemed dated and worn out. Our room clearly wasn't one of the best they had and our "sitting area" (as opposed to deck) was two vinyl chairs next to the parking area, not facing the water. Some rooms have a water-facing deck, but not us. No matter. The kayaks are only available during the "high tide cycle" and usually only once per day. There's a three to four hour window when you can rent them, but the attendant is also on call. The place was clean and overall fine. Skip the free breakfast. Even with "fresh" waffles made from a tasteless, disgusting mix, the whole event is a glorified continental breakfast at best. Better to head to Ogunquit to the various breakfast joints and get a real breakfast. Limited kayaking hours was a surprise to us but it made sense because the river is tidal. A bit overpriced for what you get, but I am sure the area commands the prices because of summer attractions and the beautiful beach at Ogunquit.
Stayed in King room with balcony Great room room were recently renovated which was great view was good Room was under main lobby and could hear everybody going to breakfast
Check-In was at 3:00pm and we were not able to get into our rooms until almost 4:00pm
the location was great to everything in the area,the free breakfast was not to bad either the room had a stuffy odor to it
The location was perfect, i really enjoyed the shuttle to the beach which is a big plus. The breakfast could hace been a bit more elaborated, the room smelled like mold.
The staff were very friendly, it was exceptionally clean, close to town. No hot tub available only seasonal
Clean, large rooms. Sauna was broken and hot tub was closed (although it wasn't mentioned online).
It was quaint The shower ceiling was very sharply angled in my room
Good location downtown, nice staff. Pool was under construction for renovations, and we had really been eagerly awaiting this part of the trip with two little kids. No continental breakfast - only their restaurant with overpriced and far underperforming food.
Very clean, nice room, great location Fire alarm went off, girls soccer team staying near us was very loud and rude, yelling in hallway past quiet hours, the door to our room did not close all the way.
Rooms were nice and clean. I was on club level and the ice machine and people walking around were very loud. Did not feel private. Guy at the desk was very non customer service oriented. As I found with most people at that desk. Valet guy was very nice. Pay decent money you expect a little more courtesy. I do not expect to stay there again.
We really liked the hotel. It was a convenient location, right off 95 on our way home from Maine. Clean, comfortable, and the staff was very friendly. There was only ONE thing that bothered me and had we stayed more than one night would have driven me absolutely crazy: the floor above us. Our room was located on the bottem level of the hotel, room 125. The room directly above us has the creakiest floors which left me wide awake listening to the people above getting ready in the morning. Not a problem if they got up later or I was a deep sleeper, but the floor boards started their symphony at 5:30 am, far too early for my vacation.
The Port Inn in Portsmouth, NH is a well kept, clean place to stay. Convenient to the highway and to downtown Portsmouth with a very welcoming and friendly staff.
We loved everything about this place! When we drove up I thought we were going into a motel from the 50's, which wasn't a good thing in my opinion - I didn't have fond memories of those rooms. However, when we opened our door we loved the room! It was just like a boutique hotel room - it was really nice. The staff was awesome! I probably wouldn't like walking to the office/breakfast room in the cold months, but in May it was perfect.
Great staff, great room accommodations, good location with easy access to major highways, downtown, and beach. We would stay here again on our next trip to Portsmouth. A great value for the price and a knowledgeable staff. Nothing.
The manager Steven went well above and beyond the service of any other hotel experience I've had and I travel quite frequently for work. I will certainly be back again. The breakfast is a great bonus!
They were so good to our dog. We would stay there again
So close to everything
Loved how clean it was, the staff was super friendly. We both got a free drink for waiting a little extra for our room, our room was spectacular. Valet staff were great too. The overall stay was awesome!!! The bed was a little uncomfortable. But that's the only complaint from us.
The hotel is centrally located within walking distance to every thing. Room was beautiful and clean. The shower felt so good after a long day on the beach in the sun. The beds were comfy but the pillows could be a little harder. The staff was amazing...always pleasant. The free breakfast was far more than we expected and was a great way of starting the day. Love the valet parking. ...very convenient. We will definitely be back next time we are in town. Kathleen Kelley September 2015 Pillows, not that I hated them...just that they need to be alittle harder....not enough neck support.
Directions and signage are not easily understood or noticed
Great location on Short Sands Beach. Friendly, helpful staff. The room was basic but had everything I needed to make my visit comfortable. I felt safe . There was plenty of well lit parking. The hotel was close enough to the water that it was possible to see the sunrise over the ocean from my room- beautiful! The only negative thing about this hotel is the nearest parking spots to the rooms are all spots that required expertise in parallel parking. However, later in my stay I discovered the hotel has additional spots in the back of the building that are easier to get into.
Short walking distance from the beach. Nice building from outside. Room was small, not too clean and the bed was uncomfortable. Bathroom was also ridiculously small. I do not recommend this hotel for a romantic week-end.
breakfast, pool,It was closed to stores,beach,well to everything The price compared to the other just across.The colonial is old,very old
The rooms are very small
It was a good location at a good price with nice, friendly people running the place.
Poor breakfast, hotel style motel, old bed, expensive price, picture false the condition of the hotel. not happy. two stars max
The manager was very nice. The room was very smal and old. The blanket has spot on it. The carpet was not clean. It was ok for me but I would not recommand this hotel to my mother.
was not as clean as it could have been
Beds were comfy
Close to everything. Including the best liquor store in NH across the street. Air was nice and cold. Coffee was good too in the am. Wish the bed was was a queen.
Staff was very attentive and friendly. Debris on floor. Mold on shower curtain. No drain plug for tub. Horrible pillows and breakfast
It was very clean. Coffee ran out when I came downstairs.
Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I love Robbin! He's nice, helpful and courteous. I always look forward to seeing him at the desk. Rooms are very clean, but could use some minor maintenance. My lamp shade was missing the nut that held the shade on, so it was tilted, second light in bathroom didn't work correctly, , minor things that are not always noticed.
Low Rates Awesome Friendly Service Comfortable Room
friendly staff comfortable bed difficulty regulating room temperature lack of warm blanket paltry selection of food items available for continental breakfast
Clean night clerk was very helpful in suggesting places to eat
Front desk staff very helpful with local info. Breakfast is fairly basic
We were staying in Portsmouth overnight with some friends. Great value for the price. Clean rooms & bathroom, comgortable bed. A little dated, but again, a good value for the money.
The people next door had the TV on loud all night - called front desk - they said they called the room but couldn't get hold of anyone. Moved us at 2:30 AM to another room - but next to air conditioning noise - then to another room where the traffic kept us awake all night. We were travelling from Halifax, NS to PA - driving all day and was to drive all day the next day - wasn't impressed with not getting any sleep. We usually stayed here with no complaints - too bad this happened at this time. Will look for another place next time.
location yes, balcony falling apart, if my 15 year old son was with me and went on the balacony close to the railing, he would of fell over....told them that too....they claim that he called someone but those screws had been rusted for awhile.
Rooms were real nice Sheet on the bed by the foot of the bed had a dark brown stain of some kind, that was gross and really No one to talk to about it after 10 pm when I discovered it. Also crumbs on the eating table.
Great location and views, Hotel was also beautiful. Front desk helpful.Room small but well appointed. Bathroom was great. I had a 80 min massage and it was fabulous! Indoor pool was also very nice. It was too cold out to use the outside pool. I did not use the restaurants but they both looked nice but pricy. This is really picky but there was dust and cobwebs in my bathroom and stains on the window blinds, normally I would never complain about this but when Im paying 369.00 a night I expect it to be Perfect.
Facilities, pool, bar/restaurant Small rooms
Cozy, well decorated room. Needed a small fridge for medication.
It is a well restored old hotel that is beautiful inside and out, with beautiful gardens. It was very clean and we could not hear other guests. The location on the island just adds to the charm.
The pool area is beautiful and kept very clean. The food at the Restaurant, Salt was terrible.
Will stay again in our future Maine trips. Loved the location, Everything was on route 1. The hotel is right off route 1.
The control entail breakfast was really good, and the staff were very friendly! The rooms were modern looking and very comfortable! The walls were slightly thin, but there were no disturbances to prevent from sleeping, the TV in our room didn't work but we were too tired to care
Nothing Rented out for pool parties, insanley loud, because it is so inexpensive, it brought all sorts of crowds there for hotel parties and just Not family friendly environment. Horrible stay
Cookies at night,room was clean Could hear people in room next they were up all night,i didn't sleep at all,left hotel at6am.
Walking distance to the beach The color on the tv was going in and out and the remote didn't work. They did take $20 off our stay for the inconvenience. The carpet cleaner smelled soooo strong it was hard to get used to
It is clean, quiet and close by to many places. The owner, is very friendly and informative. no enough trash can through out the facility.
I had an excellent experience.The room was very clean and quiet. My room overlooked a pretty wooded area. The hotel was a 5-10 minute walk to the beach or center of town. Staff was friendly and enthusiastically pointed out places of interest. I wish they served fresh coffee in the morning. They have tiny pots in the room but I personally don't like drinking from something that spends its life in the bathroom. For this price this seems like an easy fix.
It was clean the staff was very helpful the location was close to town and the beach.
A very pleasent find. Nice, clean comfortable room. Designed to allow good privacy. What a wonderful view from our room.
Cleanest hotel we have stayed in. Very family friendly!!
