We received a call prior to our arrival to let us know they needed to change our room (if it was ok with us) due to a part not coming in to repair the fireplace. They upgraded us to a larger suite on the second floor when she found out I had had major surgery just 5 weeks prior. Very thoughtful so I didn't have to do all of the steps up to the 3rd floor. Beautiful hotel with breakfast served in your room. Not all staff were friendly but the gentleman who brought us our breakfast was great.. So kind and thoughtful. Not a lot to do or shopping in town,

Wonderful Stay

We had a lovely and quiet stay in this charming hotel! The room was beautiful and very clean, and we loved how close it was to everything in the surrounding town. We didn't eat at the hotel which is why the rating is lower (I would have not filled it out if the form would have allowed it), but I heard the food is delicious. Will come again!

Very enjoyable stay. We were welcomed & escorted to our room with all our questions answered before we even had to ask them. All the details of the lovely room were explained including the huge Kohler shower. We enjoyed brunch the next morning which was abundant, delicious & reasonably priced. We really enjoyed staying in such a historic, beautiful hotel & will definitely return in the future!

PORT HOTEL - Very Pleasing Experience

3rd floor view of sunrise, totally awesome. Quiet, clean, restful...just what was wanted. No pretense to providing locally grown food....but would have preferred this level of attention to health and well being. Go to Twisted Willow if this is your standard, 3 block walk. But for a clean room, comfy bed, and attentive service....well done Port Hotel!

A true vacation spot.

Everyone We Encountered Was Friendly, Knowledgeable, And Accommodating. The Room Is Gorgeous And Made Me Feel Pampered! The Hotel Is Quiet And Private; We Felt Comfortable. Dining Is Also A Comfortable And Intimate Environment With Very Good Food, But Be Hungry! Its A Lot Of Food. :)

Loved our stay!

This was my second time staying at The Port Hotel. I came back because of how nice it had been the first time. The room I have chisen both times was #303. It is a very nice room on the 3rd floor, just be ready to climb the stairs with your bags and work up and appetite! The room is very comfy and pleasant and the morning room service is always very prompt! The first time I stayed here there was a larger selection of breakfast choices that were all included in the price of the room. This year the selection had been divided into 3 or 4 options included in the price, and the others for between roughly $8-$12 each. Although this change was somewhat disappointing I really could not complain about the stay and I will stay here in the future.
