My favorite place to stay in Portland, Maine

4,4 en enero 16, 2018

I love the Inn at St. John. Not only is it affordable but the staff are professional, helpful and make it a pleasure to stay here.

Quaint, Clean and Fun

4,4 en enero 16, 2018

We were in Portland to attend a concert. Found the Inn at St. John through an internet search. The price was right, it was close to the concert venue, and the web site looked interesting and inviting. Yes, there is no elevator, but you know that going in because it is a major part of their reservation process. That said, the rooms were large, clean and had all the amenities you would expect. In all, a very nice stay--we would certainly stay again.

I frequently stay here when I'm in Portland. Staff are always friendly and helpful, rooms clean and comfortable. A good value.

Comfortable and convenient

I stayed at the Inn at St. John for two nights near Christmas 2017. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was as complete a "continental" as I have seen. Lots of moderate spots for food in walking distance. Very satisfied.

Adorable inn!

4,6 en enero 07, 2018

The pet-friendly property was everything my furry companion and I needed it to be. Thank you for the outstanding service!

Warm comfy bed during the storm

4,6 en enero 07, 2018

We have stayed a few times at the Inn at St-John and have always found it to be most satisfactory. This time, unbeknownst to us, we booked our vacation in the midst of a huge snow storm. Personnel were thoughtful and considerate, offering some continental breakfast to stranded guests who did not count on almost all the restaurants closing down in the city. (Normally, it is a short 15-20 minute walk to downtown Portland and all the nice restaurants.) Our beds were warm and comfortable and we had a great night sleep, also as usual. We slept so good the person at the desk had to call our room and let us know we overslept after check-out hour. She did so in a a polite and don't worry-about-it way. We didn't eat there, so I can't vouch for the food, but we had a great stay!

Stay at The Inn at St. John

I enjoyed my one night stay at the Inn at St John very much. My room was very comfortable; I found everything to be neat and clean. I'd definitely stay there again.

Excellent innovations in Portland

4,8 en enero 01, 2018

Attractive public spaces, sparkling clean rooms with thoughtful amenities, friendly, helpful staff all at a reasonable price.

Wonderful stay, hope to do it again

4,8 en diciembre 30, 2017

Had a wonderful stay at the Inn at St John. It was a bitterly cold weekend, but the Inn was a cozy refuge, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would absolutely stay here again on our next visit to Portland.

Great go to place when in the area

4,4 en diciembre 28, 2017

We stay here often times over Christmas when we come to visit family. We don't stay anyone else because this place is so charming. The service is excellent. I love the fact that you can get coffee, tea, cookies and bottled water anytime you want. There is a lovely continental breakfast in the morning as well. Everyone is also very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are small, but that's the nature of the age of the building and the quaint rooms. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The parking lot can get crowded, but it's workable. We wouldnt' stay anywhere else.


4,6 en diciembre 27, 2017

Great location and impossibly helpful and friendly staff. My pup and I will be back for sure!

Consistently Great Comfort and Value

4,0 en diciembre 27, 2017

I have been staying at this Inn for 10 years. It is located in Old Port and is so comfortable, lively and clean. You are greeted by delicious cookies and friendly smiles at check in.. Request a lower level floor if you have mobility issues as this is a historix New England Inn with several floors. This Inn has consistently been much cleaner than your typical chain hotel

Beautiful Inn and Great service!

5 en diciembre 24, 2017

The Inn was so classically beautiful and was in a great location! The staff was great and all very kind and helpful. I would stay again in a heartbeat

Shush.... don't tell!

4,6 en diciembre 22, 2017

This is our go to home away from home when we want a Portland getaway. Everything about the stay at The Inn at St. John is perfect for us. Friendly, accommodating staff, beautiful cared for and well loved Inn, parking on site, great finger food type breakfast and wonderful, wonderful ambiance. I just hope that it doesn't change, we love it just the way it is! Thank you Inn at St. John

The only place we stay In Portland!

4,8 en diciembre 17, 2017

Whenever we have a quick trip or weekend stay in Portland we always stay at the St. John’s Inn. The service is always friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and the breakfast has many choices!

Friendly service, cozy stay

We spent a night at The Inn at St. John in early December, and were greeted by a friendly and helpful front desk staff, who quickly checked us in and helped us figure out parking (there's a small onsite lot, but an overflow lot behind the neighboring Asian restaurant; all free). They also made sure we were aware of complimentary bottles of water, as well as tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and delicious chocolate chip cookies. Our room was right off the festively decorated lobby, and we found it to be spacious and looked just like the online photos. Though it didn't bother us, our room was level with the sidewalk outside; it's also next to a medical center. If you're noise sensitive, you might want to ask for a quieter spot in the inn, but we hardly noticed it after we settled in. The room was cozy warm, clean and the bed was amazingly comfortable -- we slept great! The bathroom was narrow, but shower was great. Toiletries are available, including toothbrushes, mouthwash and makeup remover at no charge. We found a Lyft to Old Port that arrived in 3 minutes. The free Wi-fi worked great. Complimentary breakfast had fresh fruit, in addition to the continental fare. The staff was also quick to help the other guests, be it check-out or recommendations of small businesses to do some holiday shopping. They offered every guest help with luggage and parcels if needed. Our stay was only for a night, but we wouldn't hesitate to book again for longer. We felt welcomed, safe, warm and well attended to. We got an inn with a local feel and better amenities than any commercial chain it a competing price range.

Worthy of an annual trip

4,8 en diciembre 12, 2017

Staying at the Inn at St. John to see a concert has become an annual tradition for us. We are never disappointed by the unique charm, great service and cookies on arrival. The location and value are excellent.

Great value

Regularly stay here, always great service. Portland can be pricey so this is a nice option.

All Around Win!

5 en diciembre 05, 2017

This hotel was absolutely perfect as far as I'm concerned. Great price, near everything, food and drinks right across the street, and a meticulously maintained building both inside and out. The staff were fantastic and the stay was better than I could have imagined (Room 6C King/Private Bath). This is a time period hotel, so the steps are a bit more narrow and there is no elevator, however this did not affect me in the least. Just an excellent place to stay.

Home away from home

5 en noviembre 28, 2017

An older quaint structure, updated, together with lovely details, friendly staff, a very nice continental breakfast, and excellent pricing make Inn at St. John our go-to accommodation when in Portland.

Superb Staff

3,6 en noviembre 28, 2017

This inn was lovely, and the staff were super friendly and professional. I The room was spacious and clean. I chose this place to stay because of it's history and dog friendly accommodations. My pup had a relaxing stay and we would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Friends and family weekend/birthday celebration

4,6 en noviembre 26, 2017

We have now stay twice this year. We LOVE it here. We stayed in the same room both times but next time will try a different room. I love how the rooms are all unique to theselves. Staff is warm, friendly and very welcoming. Free parking, free water and cookies and a great breakfast. I feel safe here. Thank you so much!!!

What a neat place!

4,8 en noviembre 16, 2017

My boyfriend and I spent two nights at The Inn at the end of October and had such a nice time. The folks at the front desk were very accommodating and helpful. The room was charming, and such a nice change of pace compared with contemporary chain hotels of today. The room was comfortable and clean, the morning continental breakfast was plentiful, and they even have complimentary coffee, tea, and water until late in the evening. We really enjoyed our stay, and hope to return to Portland one day. We would definitely stay at the Inn at St. John again!

Old World Charm

4,8 en noviembre 09, 2017

If you want the experience of a small European hotel this is the place for you. It's intimate and the staff are exceptionally helpful but unobtrusive. The rooms are spotless and well appointed. If you want a huge room with no character look elsewhere. The fact that many rooms share a bath never bothers us and we love the comfy bathrobes they provide. Parking is free and convenient and the breakfast is quite nice. A bit of protein (cheese or meet) would be a nice addition but overall it's fine. This is our preferred place to stay in Portland but don't wait to book a room. They fill up fast! We've stayed there four times this year and will be back in a couple of weeks.

Paradise in Portland

3,8 en noviembre 08, 2017

I was afforded the opportunity to spend a few nights in the Inn at St John. I was pleasantly surprised at the kindness of the staff, particularly one effervescent young woman-concierge who greeted me everyday with a warm smile. The decor is small-town vintage, a theme that grew on me and felt appropriate in the heart of the city. I truly enjoyed my stay, the water was warm, my room was clean, and breakfast was terrific! The Inn at St John is a treasure because of its decor but most importantly the kindness of people I am appreciative of experiences during my stay. Needless to say I had a wonderful time.

All good

4,8 en noviembre 08, 2017

Everything was fine; staff is very nice. The in-suite hot tub is just jets in a regular sized tub.

Exemplary service!!

5 en noviembre 08, 2017

The Inn was excellent, much better than what I anticipated. They were super accommodating and went out lf their way to make sure you had a great stay. Would definetly come again. The continental breakfast was great, a wide variety and cookies 24/7!!

Our Stay

4,6 en noviembre 08, 2017

Nice place, convenient (Portland is a small town, however). The "on site" dining is really just a continental breakfast and it is standard fare, not outstanding, but what you would expect. Recommended place to stay!

Perfect getaway

4,2 en noviembre 05, 2017

Absolutely gorgeous room in a quaint Inn. Loved it. Wish it were a bit closer to Old Port. My wife and I were able to walk there, but decided a quick Uber ride was the best way to get back after dinner. Highly recommended.


3,8 en noviembre 04, 2017

Our stay was just what we needed. Lovely room, close to everything and very affordable. We'd definitely come back!

Best of BB's Portland

4,6 en noviembre 01, 2017

Run, don't walk to Inn at St. John, a wonderful European type BB experience right here in Portland, ME. Shush...keep it a secret if you can, we don't want to be booked out of the opportunity to stay there. Love, love, love it...the rooms, the staff, the parking, the location, even love the fact that there is no elevator! Keep up the great work all of you at the Inn, we will be back!

Great old hotel feel like your somewhere in Europe

4,6 en octubre 31, 2017

Very convenient off highway. Friendly staff. Clean , comfortable rooms. Great little breakfast . Would only stay here when back in Portland.

Perfect Portland

The Inn was so charming, the people were amazingly nice and helpful, and it was walking distance or a short Uber ride from everything we needed! I will definitely stay here again!

Excellent stay in Portland

3rd time staying at the inn at St. John’s. Easily the most affordable option in town, fine location, oitrsgeously friendly staff. Hotel is a bit dated but that is the charm!

Great stay at Inn at St John

4,8 en octubre 11, 2017

Such a cute place with tons of personality and great service! Very close to everything you need.

First time in Portland

4,4 en octubre 11, 2017

My band was playing on a Saturday night in Portland and my wife and I decided to stay the night and make a weekend of it. All of the name hotels were booked (and surprisingly expensive). So I searched the internet and came up with the Inn at St John. Although not in the center of town, it was close enough. The room was small, but clean and the bed was super comfortable. The service was outstanding and friendly. The breakfast and late checkout on Sunday were nice bonuses.

Outstanding service

4,8 en octubre 10, 2017

My wife and I had a terrific time staying there and the staff was so caring, respectful, & helpful that we will for sure stay there again, so long as we make it to Portland again.

Lovely B&B

5 en octubre 09, 2017

Staff were all so friendly and welcoming. Rooms were lovely and breakfast was just right. The free cookies were a good touch too!

Love this place!

5 en octubre 09, 2017

We loved this historic hotel! It's close to downtown Portland, but not in all the chaos of downtown. It has a lot of character, and the price is so much more reasonable than the big chain hotels. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and they have cookies all day! We plan to stay here every time we come to Portland. Thank you for a great stay!

Spacious, Clean, Comfortable Room

4,6 en octubre 04, 2017

We stayed here on our return from a trip to Acadia. It is about eight easy minutes from the airport. The room was very nicely decorated, it included everything you would need- hair dryer, refrigerator, microwave, coffee. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a very early flight, but they brought out breakfast food we could take with us to the airport. Highly recommend staying at the Inn at St John.

Early fall

3,8 en octubre 01, 2017

I have visited several times. Rooms are clean and comfortable. WiFi and computer access available. Easy breakfast items available to take as you explore Portland. Staff friendly and helpful.

Nice Historic Inn

4,6 en septiembre 27, 2017

We had a very spacious room, with comfortable beds. The room and bath were very clean and the bathroom was well stocked. A light breakfast is also provided. The staff were all friendly and helpful.

Excellent and consistent every time!

4,0 en septiembre 27, 2017

We have been to Inn at St John many times and every time we are greeted with friendly customer service and clean rooms. It has a very cozy, European feel and provides a breakfast of bagels, english muffins, muffins, and more. We keep coming back to Portland and this is the place we always stay. When you revisit a place so often and it continues it's exceptional service, then you know you can trust your stay there.

Good stay as always

4,2 en septiembre 22, 2017

I've stayed at The Inn at St John several times now, it is a great value - don't expect luxury but the rooms are nice and clean, the staff is excellent, breakfasts are basic but good and location is pretty good too - I don't like being too close to the touristy waterfront. This was the first time I had a room with a private but separate bathroom down the hall and it was fine. Certainly not worth paying the extra $100-200 per night (at least) at one of the bigger chain hotels in my opinion. I'll be back next time I'm in town.

Spacious comfortable room

4,8 en septiembre 22, 2017

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn at St John. The bed was very comfortable. The room was spotless and we had room for our things.

Excellent stay. Thank you!

4,6 en septiembre 19, 2017

Everyone was so helpful during our brief stay, helping us figure out plans and directions around the city. It's an interesting, attractive historical building. Many thanks!

Another great stay

4,2 en septiembre 10, 2017

The Inn at St. John never disappoints. Staff was very helpful in getting us transportation to our evening event and the room was very comfortable. The breakfast area always gets a bit crowded but that's minor.

Just what we needed

4,4 en septiembre 09, 2017

Had a too short, but wonderful stay in Portland. Front desk service was friendly and efficient. Was surprised to find out that there are complimentary snacks (cookies) and beverages (water, coffee) available at all times. The age of the Inn shows in some ways (i.e., short, steep staircases), but our room and bathroom were clean. Our breakfast was light and simple (a great primer to whet your appetite for all of the great food in Portland). We enjoyed our stay here, and will certainly not hesitate to book here again on our next visit.

Very cute and cozy

4,4 en septiembre 06, 2017

Bedrooms exceeded my expectations. Shared bathroom was clean and not an issue at all.

Our go-to place to stay in Portland

3,8 en septiembre 03, 2017

Love the uniqueness of each room. The staff is always wonderful/helpful. Thank you again for a lovely stay. Will see you soon!

Excellent, such a beautiful hotel!

4,6 en septiembre 01, 2017

I will be staying here every time I go to Portland, I loved it! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful since it was my first time visiting. The hotel's location is perfect, only a brisk 15 minute walk to the center of downtown and parking is included! I loved the decor and the room was beautiful with comfortable beds. Breakfast was perfect for me, continental and includes cereal, bagels juices and plenty of fresh fruit. I booked 3 days before my stay and only stayed one night...which I am assuming caused the price to be high!

A place with charm, comfort

4,6 en agosto 29, 2017

I needed an overnight to recoup from a European flight return to Logan. This sweet, small hotel provided that and more. The continental breakfast was generous and much of it homemade, the antique decor was of an older and elegant era, the bed restored my energies and the shared bath very available. I would recommend it with the added note that it places you right in downtown Portland--a big plus for me---but still quiet. I came from Boston on the bus and the hotel re-imbursed me for the taxi fare from Concord Trailways. And if you come in on Greyhound, you can walk across the street! Service, comfort and smiles all around. Linda

An excellent value!

4,8 en agosto 27, 2017

We had a wonderful stay at the Inn at St. John. The room was clean and comfy, and the breakfast was great! What I appreciated most of all about our stay was that the St. John staff was very helpful and courteous.

Excellent Stay

5 en agosto 27, 2017

This hotel is perfect for those who want something a little different from the norm. It has a very European feel. The stairs may be a problem for some, but I take mine two at a time, so it wasn't an issue. Fantastic take away/ eat in breakfast and the staff at the front desk were really friendly. We will be back for more.

Welcoming and clean, dog-friendly

4,4 en agosto 25, 2017

Convenient location downtown Portland, historic, clean, nice light breakfast set up. Room was small, but good value for the area. Very friendly staff.

Such nice staff

4,8 en agosto 24, 2017

I enjoyed my stay- parking was convenient, breakfast offerings were generous and the staff was so friendly

great value!

5 en agosto 23, 2017

I was really happy with my room at St. John! The room was comfortable and clean, and had everything I needed. Also, the breakfast was as good as you would find at any other hotel chain. Finally, the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again for sure.

Our Go-to place to stay when visiting Portland

4,6 en agosto 22, 2017

Far enough from downtown congestion, yet walk able to town when you want to be in the midst of all the activity. Great restaurants in this area. Love that it's close to the ballpark.

Nice hotel

3,8 en agosto 22, 2017

Great value. Clean room and bathroom. Convenient on-site parking.

Wonderful stay!

3,6 en agosto 22, 2017

The staff is pleasant, the room was very nice and led to a comfortable stay. A+


4,4 en agosto 21, 2017

Everything was excellent. The hotel has free parking, clean rooms, and well maintained facilities. The free breakfast was great, but the narrow hallway with the counter and seating was too crowded. Excellent chiloice if you want to stay in Portland and want a great value for your dollar.

one night in Portland

4,6 en agosto 20, 2017

We stayed on the top floor with a shared bathroom. The room was lovely, high ceils, and good bed. Quiet, terrific value, didn't expect it to be so nice.

My Stay

3,4 en agosto 17, 2017

Convenient to Hadlock Field. Was able to leave bags behind front desk instead of in hot car while at a Seadogs game. That was great. Comfortable room. Loved having a fridge in the room.

Old world charm with modern amenities

5 en agosto 16, 2017

We were very pleased with our stay. The staff was attentive and friendly. The room (7b) was spacious and tastefully appointed. The hotel has a classic yesteryear charm and decor. Our room felt more like we were staying in a home rather than a hotel. Getting around Portland was fairly easy and a short drive to the port area. The hotel's parking area is small, but they have overflow parking right next door. The continental breakfast was very good and had a number of choices. Guests were also welcome to the complimentary water in the fridge. The coffee was also very good. Please note, there is not an elevator to service the upper floors. The overall feel of the hotel was very European and the loved it. We can't wait to go back! K&k August 2017

Good location for Portland Maine

3,8 en agosto 15, 2017

Recently stayed at St. John inn for the second time. The location is fantastic for the price, just a short uber ride from the old port or walking distance to a few local spots. Only downside is that many rooms do have a shared bath, however both times I have stayed here, they are very clean and no conplaints.

Quiet and Very Clean

4,0 en agosto 14, 2017

It was a pretty good distance from the main part of town which made it quiet. Definitely had to drive. Parking was provided at the hotel.Staff was very friendly.

Charming and unusual

5 en agosto 13, 2017

Great place about 10 to 15 minute easy walk to center of Portland. On site parking. The second and third floors are accessed by steep stairs so if that's a problem, ask for first floor rooms. Some rooms have shared baths but all bathrooms, shared or not, are across the room in the hallway. The hallways are narrow because this is an old building so you can easily dash in and out and they are very clean. The continental breakfast is very good, served in a charming area off the front desk. Definitely will be back.

Great Place to Stay

4,6 en agosto 12, 2017

Great little place to stay. We enjoyed the walk to the harbor and all the great restaurants Portland has to offer. Very convenient to the airport. Thanks

Lovely Inn

3,8 en agosto 10, 2017

The staff was very friendly and helpful. This was our first trip to Portland. We will definitely be back to Portland and the Inn.

Very enjoyable stay

4,2 en agosto 07, 2017

The accommodations were charming in an old-school kind of way. We really enjoyed our stay there, and the staff were lovely. Our room had only one small window, which was taken up with the air conditioner, so my only wish was that there had been more natural light. Still, I would definitely stay there again.

Portland getaway

4,4 en agosto 05, 2017

Good Value, Great Service

My husband and I had a pleasant stay. This is a great location for nice walk to downtown or hopping in a car to visit any of the nearby beaches and attractions. The staff was so friendly and helpful. A good value.

Very good inn

Very friendly staff. Easy free parking.

Charming and friendly stay!

4,8 en julio 29, 2017

Check in was very smooth, and the staff was extremely accommodating and kind. My guests and I were very happy with the stay overall. Good water pressure for the showers, and a modest but filling continental breakfast available each morning. A guest in my party had to mail a document post haste and the staff were very helpful in arranging that service quickly and efficiently. I would definitely stay here again!

A wonderful honeymoon

4,8 en julio 26, 2017

My husband and I were gifted a two-night stay at the Inn at St. John as a wedding gift from my parents, and we had a wonderful time. The rooms are beautiful, and we were lucky enough to have a private bath, which was also lovely. Although the Inn is a bit of a hike from Old Port, it's not a particularly long walk to the downtown Arts District, which offers a ton of cool shops and restaurants. Every staff member we met was friendly and happy to offer recommendations of things to do/places to explore around the city. We'd definitely stay here again, and will be recommending it to our friends!

Perfect Weekend Getaway

5 en julio 23, 2017

My boyfriend and I came to Portland for a concert. We were looking for an affordable place to stay that was relatively close to Old Port. The Inn at St John was perfect. Our room, though small, was very clean and comfortable. The building is beautiful and historic, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. There is a cute little cafe area for the continental breakfast, which was just what we needed after our night out. I would definitely recommend the Inn at St John and we will definitely be coming back soon!

A place with personality!

5 en julio 20, 2017

Staff was exceptionally courteous and helpful, and facilities were top-notch!

A hidden gem

4,2 en julio 20, 2017

The Inn at St. John is away from the waterfront and thus a good choice for walkers and neighborhood explorers, and about 1/2 a mile form the arts district. The ensuite room I had was spacious and nicely decorated. The bathroom was immaculate and well-appointed with towels and toiletries (but no bathmat!?). There is no elevator, and a topographical staircase, so travel light! The staff, who are delightful, will carry your bags up and down if need be.

2nd Stay, Just as good as the 1st

5 en julio 19, 2017

Stayed overnight before heading north to see family. Pleasant place, great value. I recommend for any traveler.

Close to restaurants on Congress street, comfortable and cozy.

Recent Stay

4,6 en julio 10, 2017

My wife and I went to Portland for a few days with plans to spend most of our time downtown. The price of hotels in downtown Portland was ridiculous (possibly due to it being 4th of July week, though we were there from the 5th to the 7th). the Inn at St. John came in notably less and did not seem to be too far from where we wanted to be. The first thing I will say is that the staff are incredibly friendly. When we checked in, both of the attendants at the desk were on the phone with customers and on of the hotel’s maintenance people was quick to drop his paint brush and attend to us. I can’t imagine not having a room with a private, in-room, bathroom, so my recommendation is to book a room that does not have shared facilities.

A nice stop in Portland

4,4 en julio 07, 2017

Cozy and cute, nice staff, dog friendly. You can get a little workout if you stay on the top floor!


4,6 en julio 04, 2017

Not your typical hotel by any means. It is like stepping back in time, very clean, friendly staff, and cozy rooms. I had to cancel one reservation and was charged $15 dollars to cancel as expected, then they sent me a gift certificate for $15 dollars to use on my next stay, totally unexpected! Looking forward to my next visit to Portland.


4,8 en julio 02, 2017

Staff is incredibly friendly - rooms were small and weirdly shaped but we liked that about it - ten minute walk from downtown - nice old building - delicious cookies

Cozy Stay In Portland

5 en junio 29, 2017

When we arrived at the Inn everyone was so friendly. We had coffee and cookies while we waited for our room. Our room was so clean . The staff is so helpful. Breakfast in the morning there is plentiful and a great start to the day before sightseeing. I would definitely come back. Affordable and cozy.

Nice place to stay in Portland

3,8 en junio 28, 2017

Nice place and very helpful and friendly staff. Room was large and comfortable and a bus outside takes you into centre of Portland.

Great location, charming space

4,4 en junio 27, 2017

We loved the style of the Inn at St John and we're delighted to stay in a small and authentic inn. The inn is a short distance from the train/coach station, is a ten-minute walk from the beautiful Estern promenade, and has regular access to city buses along Congress Street further in to town--we'd happily stay again.

Hidden Gem

4,4 en junio 26, 2017

Upgraded to a room with bath on the first floor. The room was large and comfortable. The bathroom also was good sized and the jets in the bath were a nice touch. Staff very friendly and helpful. Location was good, convenient walk to downtown area and plenty of onsite parking. I would definitely stay here again!

Great value

A little skeptical about the area but the hotel and staff were a pleasant surprise

Inn at St. John

4,6 en junio 25, 2017

We love the Inn at St. John. The rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable and the staff always makes us feel welcome and at home. Great place to stay in Portland. The only onsite dining is breakfast which is adequate - bagels and pastries, yogurt, some fresh fruit. Good coffee. There are yummy cookies, tea and coffee, and cold bottle water available all day.

Our One Night Stop

Friendly people, lovely setting. Mattress was not the most comfortable; good night nonetheless.

Great evening at the St. John Inn

Great place to stay! Clean and cozy rooms with lots of character. Nice selection for breakfast. Highly recommend this Inn for your stay

A delightful value-- as always

4,6 en junio 24, 2017

The Inn at St Johns is my go to place in Portland, whether I am passing through or spending some time. Wonderful value, friendly and accommodating staff--just perfect.

Very nice but a bit of a walk from downtown Portland

4,6 en junio 11, 2017

Stayed in a nice room with a shared bathroom which worked very nicely. Underestimated how far away downtown Portland was from the Inn, but it was still walkable. The parking lot in the back was very convenient. Overall, great and would stay there again.

Very comfortable

4,2 en junio 09, 2017

Always stay here when visiting Portland. Comfortable, safe, and better than chain hotels.

Overnight stay

4,2 en junio 09, 2017

I stayed at the Inn at St. John for an overnight stay in early May. The staff were exceptional and the amenities were exactly as expected.

Great Value

5 en junio 08, 2017

A short Uber from downtown, this is a great alternative to the over-priced chains located downtown. Our room had an antique charm, while still being modern and comfortable. The staff was very friendly, and the free cookies are a nice touch!

Awesome Place!

4,6 en junio 05, 2017

Inn at St John is one of the main reasons why my mom and I visit Portland. It's quaint and beautiful rooms are so comfortable it's hard to even leave the hotel! Plus it's dog friendly and super accommodating. The front desk staff is super nice and helpful and the breakfast is delicious. This is our second time staying here, and we will not be staying anywhere else when we visit!

A comfortable, welcoming, great value in Portland!

4,6 en junio 05, 2017

A comfortable, welcoming, great value. Recommended by friends, they did not steer me wrong when in need of an overnight stay in Portland. Sheets could have been higher quality, but the bed and pillows were comfortable. Exceeded my expectations in terms of amenities. Even had complimentary bottled water. I will definitely stay at the Inn at St. John again!

Memorable stay at historic Inn at St. John

4,6 en junio 03, 2017

Superior service from reservation to check out. Staff extremely pleasant and helpful regarding hotel accommodations to information about Portland. The entire Inn was well kept and clean.

classic hotel, old-fashioned but never dated

4,8 en junio 02, 2017

The Inn at St. John is a lovely hotel for anyone staying in Portland. The decor is appropriate for the age of the building, the rooms are cosy and comfortable, the continental breakfast is satisfying, and the price cannot be beat. There is on site parking for guests. The front desk personnel are informed and very willing to answer any questions about local restaurant options, sightseeing, etc. A person with mobility issues might have some difficulty navigating the first floor hallways, and the upper floors are only accessible by stairs (no elevator).

Convenient, Clean, Good Value

4,6 en mayo 31, 2017

My husband and I have been coming to Portland for more than a decade so we are very familiar with the town and have our places we like to go, etc. The Inn at St. John is a great option to stay within striking distance of the Old Port, without paying an arm and a leg for a room in that district. You are just a 8-15 minute cab ride from the Old Port, which is for our purposes a fine trade off for the savings. We have stayed at the Inn now twice and both times the rooms were clean, the staff was nice, and the coffee was good! We hope to return many more times.


5 en mayo 30, 2017

The friendlies hotel staff I've ever seen. Great room! Clean and smell good!! Super fast internet, free water&tea&ice&cookies. Beautiful decoration and relax atmosphere. #1 hotel so far in my mind.

Overnight in Portland

4,4 en mayo 27, 2017

I had business in Portland that required an overnight stay. The Inn at St. John is my go-to hotel when I stay in Portland, Maine. Great people at the desk, clean, comfortable and great location. Quiet for a good nights sleep.

Excellent Value for Money, Comfortable and Convenient

5 en mayo 22, 2017

The room was very pleasant and comfortable, breakfast was good and available for a conveniently wide spread of time, the staff were very helpful and the price was low. Couldn't ask for more - highly recommended.

A wonderful find!

4,6 en mayo 22, 2017

The inn was comfortable, convenient and delightful. I'll be back. Thank you.

Wonderful, hospitable and homey!

5 en mayo 22, 2017

The staff was extremely accommodating to myself and especially to my dog. Wonderful experience! Will definitely visit again! Thank you!

Great value in portland!

Always a great value in Portland! Quirky and charming! Clean and quaint rooms, free parking, breakfast, and within walking distance to great restaurants and downtown Portland!

Quaint Inn

4,2 en mayo 09, 2017

We love staying at places that have character rather than your typical chain hotel. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. We will be going back.

Love This Place

5 en mayo 06, 2017

Great staff. Great location. Lovely rooms. No complaints. Will go back in a heartbeat.

Great place to stay in Portland

4,4 en mayo 05, 2017

The Inn is well located for exploring the downtown area of Portland without a car. Staff helped us find public transportation and directed us to our destinations. And on a rainy night, the breakfast area was a comfortable place for us to enjoy the excellent Thai meal we ordered in. Looking forward to a return visit.

Great place

4,2 en mayo 04, 2017

Stayed in room 1A (king room with private bath) and it was a great room. Had a mini-fridge and coffee maker. It was a very clean hotel. Stayed 2 nights and both nights were great. A few places within walking distance and downtown was a short and in-expensive Lyft ride away. The bars and restaurants were great in the downtown area. Continental breakfast was as to be expected with bagels, cereal, sweets and fruit. The complementary water and cookies in the lobby were an added bonus. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area. Would stay here again.

Quaint and Charming!

4,6 en mayo 02, 2017

The Inn at St. John was wonderful! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful throughout our stay and the décor throughout the inn was so charming! I would definitely recommend staying here - excellent accommodations at an incredibly affordable price!

Charming and Convenient

4,4 en abril 29, 2017

We always stay here when we visit Portland. The people and the place are very charming. Plus, it's within a short walk to just about everything (especially Holy Donuts and Salvage BBQ).

Favorite hotel in the USA

Inn at St. John in Portland, Maine

Will stay again at this Inn & recommend to family & friends! Very hospitable!!! Loved my brief stay!!!

Excellent home base for Portland, ME

4,2 en abril 21, 2017

I had a room with a private bath down the hall. Slightly annoying, but the price was excellent compared to other hotels downtown. It's a mile straight shot to downtown so an easy walk to everything. Staff was very friendly, complimentary water! Free parking! The breakfast is there but nothing worth taking part in with the options downtown and nearby Hot Suppa. This was my second time here and I look forward to coming back.

Great charming little inn

3,8 en abril 19, 2017

So calm, no noise, we slept very well!

Great Character!

4,2 en abril 16, 2017

This nice little Inn has all the character you could want! Beautiful rooms and great bathrooms (not all rooms have private bathrooms). The free breakfast could include a few more sugar-free options.

My favorite place in Portland

5 en abril 13, 2017

The only hesitation I have making an accurate review of Inn at St. John is future difficulty getting a reservation. Charming structure, personable staff, convenient location (we leave the car in the free lot and walk everywhere) very clean and a great breakfast including for me, a Gluten, Dairy Free person. When asked how often I stay there my answer was 'not often enough.'

Wonderful place to stay

4,6 en abril 12, 2017

This was a wonderful place to stay in Portland. It has free parking, excellent continental breakfast, complimentary waters along with tea/coffee available all day. The staff was very friendly and helpful and our deluxe king room included slippers, robes and even toothbrushes, toothpaste and mouthwash. We will stay here again, if we are in the Portland area!

European style hotel

4,8 en abril 05, 2017

Our second visit here was just as nice as our first. It's a very comfortable, Europen style hotel with outstanding service and attention to detail. The location is great and parking is free. Rooms are nicely appointed and include thick cotton robes, a tv and just about anything you need. Staff is vey attentive and helpful. Breakfast was a nice addition. We've stayed in a lot of other places in Portland but this is our preferred place to stay. Excellent value and uber clean.

Portland for the Buying Show

Conveniently located B&B near downtown Portland

3,6 en abril 02, 2017

For those looking for a reasonably priced place to stay in Portland that is not a chain motel or hotel, check out the Inn at St. John. It's about a 5-7 min drive (not really walking distance) from downtown Portland and the waterfront with lots of great restaurants and shops. Great variety of types of sizes of rooms but try to avoid rooms facing the street which can be a bit noisy since the inn is across the street from a major hospital. Breakfast is just continental but definitely adequate, though sitting area is very small.

Good place to stay, but go out for breakfast!

4,0 en abril 02, 2017

Clean and comfortable lodgings, and friendly staff. Continental breakfast, especially the 'bakery' goods could be kicked up a notch. Overall, a good place to stay when in Portland.

Cozy, affordable, and ideal location

4,2 en abril 02, 2017

As always, the Inn at St. John provided a cozy, affordable stay on the Portland peninsula. The rooms are well-appointed; the staff is more than helpful. A wonderful alternative to an over-priced hotel or uncertain Air B&B.

Great Stay at St Johns

4,4 en marzo 23, 2017

Lovely room , very clean and very nice staff A pleasure!!!

Very Pleased

4,8 en marzo 23, 2017

I was very pleased with my recent stay here. The staff are exceptionally friendly and attentive to you. Always greeting you with a smile and a hello when you enter. The place is very well cared for and clean. My room had a fridge provided as well as slippers and robes. Nice attention to details. My only wish is that the breakfasts could have been a little healthier. I know it is hard when you are only providing breads and cereals. There was fresh fruit however which was nice. Perhaps some whole wheat breads and things with less sugar and fat would be good. That is my only suggestions. Otherwise the place was perfect and I will definitely return.

Inn at St John

5 en marzo 15, 2017

The thing is that the inn is a steal. The rooms are as I described, quite small but very nicely decorated, the staff is more than helpful and smiling. Great location in Portland but not downtown, which is fine with us because we like to get to and away from the places we stay easily on our day to day travels in any given area. Less traffic. Great place. We will stay there again.

Another lovely stay at the Inn at St. John!

4,8 en marzo 15, 2017

We stay here often when we come to Portland Maine for a visit. It's fun to try out different rooms, as they all have their own charm and the Inn is always so welcoming and immaculately clean. Had a lovely weekend and can't wait to return again soon!

Our stay at the Inn at St John

4,6 en marzo 13, 2017

Accommodations exceeded our expectations... Just wish the Inn was more centrally located to the downtown area, i.e. closer to shopping/restaurants...

A charming place

3,8 en marzo 12, 2017

We stayed in room 8A, one flight above the lobby, and were pleased with the quaint room and spacious bathroom. When we were looking for places to eat, we used the black binder with menus but found that one of the restaurants that caught our eye had gone out of business... so it should be updated. As others have mentioned, the neighborhood is a little sketchy but we had no problem walking home late from downtown. All in all, the value is great and we would definitely stay here again!

The best place to stay!

5 en marzo 06, 2017

This is a very well-kept and clean inn with a friendly and helpful staff. The historical angle of being Portland's oldest hotel only improves the feeling of being somewhere special. The availability of water, coffee and even cookies down in the lobby turn the area into a comfortable perch from whence to discuss your daily plan. Really the best hotel that I have stayed in for a very long time.

Portland's Hidden Gem

4,4 en marzo 03, 2017

This is my fourth time to stay at Inn at St. John and I love it every time. The staff are excellent, so you know from the minute you walk in the door that you're going to love it here. Rooms are quaint and appointed nicely, linens feel luxurious, ... everything is cozy and comfy. And it's all for a very affordable price. There is a smidge of continental breakfast since there's no kitchen on site. I wanted to put "N/A" for onsite dining but that's not an option. The cookies that are out to welcome you are yummy.

Little victorian Heaven

4,6 en febrero 25, 2017

This place was amazing. So calm, quiet, and beautiful!!! I loved the rooms. So beautiful. The staff are probably the nicest and most helpful people I've ever met and I've met LOADS of people cuz I travel a lot. They made my trip to Maine just the most wonderful ¿

A fine home away from home

4,6 en febrero 20, 2017

In addition to exceeding standards in terms of comfort and friendliness, the inn's rooms are beautiful and highly functional. I always feel a bit like I am back in a UK inn when staying here. Overall, this is a calm and calming place for overnight or even weeklong get aways.

Sweet Stay

4,2 en febrero 14, 2017

What a lovely place to stay - all the old-worldliness of a B&B, with the convenience of a local hotel. Most pleasant stay, and very affordable.

Charming and Convenient!

4,2 en febrero 13, 2017

We stayed at the Inn at St. John on the recommendation of a fellow traveler for our short stay in Portland, ME. The inn is located right on Congress street, which makes it the perfect location for walking around the city. We didn't use our car the entire time we were there! I was very impressed with the amenities we received for the price. In particular, I was very surprised that they offer complimentary bottled water downstairs in the breakfast area at all times. The breakfast itself is lovely and inclusive, and the hours are very reasonable. The only real criticism I have is the cleanliness of the room. Everything appeared clean, but as someone who has worked in the hospitality industry in the past, I always do the usual check—bed linens, coffee-maker and cups, behind the toilet, etc. Everything looked fine, but I did notice that our linens had some hair and fuzz from the dryer, and the water reservoir for the coffee machine could have used a deep clean. There was some dust buildup in the bathroom, but otherwise we were very satisfied. It's a fantastic inn, especially for the value, and I would recommend it to any traveler coming to the area.

Quick Night to See a Concert

5 en febrero 11, 2017

We stayed one night to see a show up the road. I will stay longer on my next trip to Portland. The Inn is a bit quirky but that gives it the charm. We stayed on the top floor. We read the web site and it clearly states that there is not an elevator. I liked the top floor. The Inn is clean, reasonable and the staff is awesome. My wife works at an Inn and thought the place was great!

Big fans

4,6 en febrero 09, 2017

The management at the Inn at St. John was extremely sincere and helpful. They made it clear that they cared about our stay and were happy to host. Because my husband and I had some trouble finding a room at the last minute, we were overjoyed to find such a charming, quaint, well-maintained, and fairly priced option. We were even upgraded to a bigger room! So cozy. Thank you!

Lovely Place

5 en febrero 08, 2017

My husband and I stayed here one night for a concert in Portland. They automatically upgraded us to a nicer room, just because! The room was large, with brick on one wall. It was absolutely worth the cost, and even more. They have complimentary water bottles,and their continental was a nice spread. Would absolutely stay here again!!

A Wonderful Place to Stay!

5 en enero 31, 2017

We stayed one night to see a concert up the road. The Inn was spotless, cozy and a bit quirky which suited us fine. We were up on the top floor. It was not a problem for us to walk up the stairs even after walking to and from the show. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a great place to stay!

A Great Stay!!!

5 en enero 29, 2017

My husband and I love this hotel! ..the history...the style...the coziness...the atmosphere....the employees...the breakfast...the beautiful rooms...the cleanliness...the comfort...the accessibility to all things Portland! It's unique! Not the run of the mill, cookie-cutter kind of place like the motel chains. We recommend it highly. Off-season is very affordable! It's a great place!

A pleasant stay at St. John

3,8 en enero 26, 2017

Overall I am happy with my stay at the Inn at St. John. The workers were extremely friendly and helpful. All my luggage was brought up for me to the top floor! The only down sides are that the continental breakfast was nothing special and you can hear every noise.

Recent Portland Stay

4,2 en enero 11, 2017

My husband and I stay overnight in Portland several times a year, but had never stayed at the Inn at St John. We were very surprised and pleased with this inn. Our room was large and well-appointed. Attention to detail was very apparent, such as robes and slippers, real mugs for coffee, and quality toiletries. The price was very reasonable. It had snowed in the night, and we were amazed to find our car cleaned of snow in their free parking lot. We will stay again!

Nice Change

4,0 en enero 10, 2017

What I liked most about the Inn, was the unusal make up of the rooms. we had a king size bed with our own bathroom and everthing seemed so unique and cozy:) The option of parking for free was also great!

We've been staying here for several years when visiting Portland. Always exceptionally pleased with everything about the Inn. Highly recommended!

Another Good Stay

2,8 en enero 03, 2017

No dining available on site but they have a good list of local food options in the room. We really like the locations and cost for this Inn. It is close enough for us to talk to concert venues and very close to my favorite Asian market!

Always a great stay

4,6 en enero 01, 2017

I stay at the Inn quite often when I come down to Portland and its always so convenient. The staff is always so friendly and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms are always clean and well stocked with towels and TP. The refrigerator in the room is always nice! For the price its the only place to stay in Portland in my opinion... actually even if I had loads of money I would still stay here! Its easy to walk into downtown in minutes and there are also great places to eat right nearby (great Thai restaurant just a few doors over). I would totally recommend this place for anyone who wants to enjoy Portland and not spend huge amounts of money. Great place for people backpacking through as there is no hostel in Portland

Very happy with my stay

i love this little gem - it is right on congress street- i can walk all over the city- the price is great - i treated myself last week to a room with a king tub and it was still under $100 bucks -the breakfast is not hot - but pretty good - all in all - i love this place

Great service, nice people

For an inexpensive room in the city, the Inn was very comfortable, clean, and cozy. I would gladly stay there again.

Stayed with our small dog who was very welcomed

My wife and I always stay here when we come to Portland. We've always been very happy.

What a gem!

4,6 en diciembre 15, 2016

Stayed in room 103 on 1st floor for one night. Room was spacious, quiet and nicely decorated. Bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. Heating was perfect. Well run establishment with everything you would expect of a nice B&B. I was having surgery at Maine Medical (this is closest lodging to hospital), so didn't have the breakfast (they need a N/A as a review option). Could not beat the price - great value!

Great stay at a reasonable price

4,6 en diciembre 15, 2016

This was my second stay here, and both times were great. Try the Thai place a few doors down!

Another Great Stay!

4,0 en diciembre 15, 2016

This was our second time staying here, and again it proved to be a place with amazing value and good service. The staff is super friendly and willing to help, and is just a short uber ride in the winter or 20 minute walk in the summer to Old Port and such. You really can't beat the value here, parking is also hassle free with the option to park in the Chinese restaurant next door if space is full in back lot.

excellent choice

4,6 en diciembre 14, 2016

Great place easy walk into town, friendly staff would stay again.

Best Little Hotel ever!

Cute Inn at a good price

3,6 en noviembre 24, 2016

Very cute Inn at a good value. The room was very large and comfortable and the Inn had a lot of charm. It's not right downtown, but we could walk to all the bars/restaurants within 20-30 minutes. Parking was also easy. The dining area was a bit small, but I would suggest skipping the provided breakfast and just heading to one of the many great places to eat in downtown Portland!

Weekend getaway

4,2 en noviembre 21, 2016

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights, it was a lovely atmosphere and the room exceeded our expectations. Everything was within walking distance and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a great deal, I would recommend this place to anyone.

Cozy with Charm

4,2 en noviembre 19, 2016

This is a very adorable Inn. From the outside it has charm and comfort. When you walk in everything ties together as a safe place to getaway and relax. Although you have to pay extra to have a private bathroom, the shared bathroom was very clean and quaint.

Comfortable and Relaxing

4,6 en noviembre 16, 2016

I stayed at the Inn at St. John for the first time last month and was very pleased. The rooms are clean, spacious and the beds are comfortable. My daughter and I each had a room of our own so we got to see two rooms. Each was unique ~ hers had a brick wall on one side. Mine was on the front with flower boxes on the windows outside. The continental breakfast was plentiful and the coffee was delicious. The only problem was that the narrow space it is set up in is too tight. Our only complaint.

Great stay just outside of downtown

4,6 en noviembre 16, 2016

Very cute inn and cozy. This definitely feels like an authentic mom and pop BB with the whole colonial flair. The staff was absolutely amazing. The second we arrived, we were welcomed with a greeting and they provided us the whole welcome speech and offered us cookies and a quick tour. They took our bags up to our room without us even asking which was a nice perk. Our room wasn't ready, so we wandered into town and walked it. It took about 1/2 hour- but we ubered home and it was only $5. Well worth ubering just so you had energy to walk around the town. When we got back at night, the inn was still open and greeted us again. The next morning, we went down to the continental breakfast at 830 and there were options for everyone. I'm gluten free, dairy free but still could have coffee and fruit with peanut butter. There was everything from yogurt to bagels to pastries. Overall good continental spread. My only 'complaint' which isn't even one is the bathroom was tiny and the towels were a bit odd. They reminded me of a college girls dorm (hot pink and lime green). It just didn't go with the vibe of the room and felt odd. Other than that, great stay, especially for the price!

An outstanding place and a bargain

4,4 en noviembre 16, 2016

Inn at St. John could not have been better. If you're staying in Portland, pay $100 less and stay here. The rooms were impeccable, luxurious even. The lobby was beautiful and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again. I only gave dining a 3 because I didn't dine there and the site makes you give it a score.

A comfortable and welcoming stay

3,6 en noviembre 15, 2016

The Inn at St. Johns is conveniently located just a few short blocks from downtown. The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly and willing to help. The room was tidy and cozy too. The lack of parking is frustrating, but difficult to fix due to their location.

Excellent overnight stay

4,6 en noviembre 09, 2016

Lovely room, excellent service.

Nice old style hotel.

4,2 en noviembre 09, 2016

Very nice visit!

I stayed the room 108 ( Superior king w/ jetted tub 108 ) with two friends. We were all absolutely satisfied our decision to stay here, it is clean, quiet, affordable, and has a parking space. Additionally, staff were all super friendly and willing to help. If I visit Portland, I would definitely stay here again.

Always a pleasure!

4,6 en noviembre 04, 2016

The folks at Inn at St. John know their stuff, are professional to the highest level, and take care of every guest. Onsite nosh hits the spot with oj and fruit, and there is always coffee/tea available in the lobby. Lots of info about local sites and events. Nearby - 5 min walk or less from several great restaurants, down St. John St from an Asian market and an excellent therapeutic massage therapist (White Water Massage). The neighborhood is the total package. The Inn is historic with completely modern updates, and is very very comfortable. We ALWAYS stay here when in Portland.

Great stay!

4,6 en noviembre 03, 2016

The staff was wonderful; the rooms were adorable and full of character; very happy with my stay and will definitely return.

Delight at the St. John

4,6 en noviembre 02, 2016

My stay at the St. John Inn was nothing short of pleasant and pleasureable. The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming as they helped us with our bags, food recommendations, and provided a list of things to do/places to stay. The room was cute and quaint and not a peep of outside noise could be heard. I will definitely be staying here again when I come back to Portland.

Good service and a quirky establishment. Not close to waterfront entertainment area but good free parking. Stairs are a real challenge but staff help with luggage. Room was great but shared bathroom should perhaps be cleaned more frequently.

Perfect end to our Maincation!

We stayed at the St John for 1 night at the end of our fall vacation to the Northeast. The room was wonderful and the available robes and slippers made us feel luxurious. The staff was particularly helpful and friendly, making a lasting impression. The overnight surveillance on the parking lot was also appreciated. Unfortunately we flew out the next morning and we're unable to enjoy Portland longer. It was easy and close to the airport. We would stay here again if we're in Portland!

Wish we could have stayed longer

4,4 en octubre 26, 2016

We made good time in our travels and arrived before check-in time at the Inn, but they were ready for us and we were able to check in early. The staff were welcoming and personable and made us feel right at home. The Inn itself was unique and charming, clean and cozy. Breakfast included fresh peaches! It was overall a great home base for us in Portland, and I wish we could have stayed there more than one night.

Brief getaway

Great stay. Not in the center, but can easily walk everywhere

Incredible Place to Stay!

5 en octubre 24, 2016

Our time at the Inn at St. John's was really wonderful. To start, the staff who greeted us at the door was very kind and accommodating. They were excited and willing to tell us any thing we wanted to know about Portland and the services at the Inn. The common area is absolutely beautiful and elegant. Once we got to our room, we were even happier to find that it was very clean and so quaint. It was an incredible experience for a great cost. We had a great stay and will definitely be back again.

Many stays, Never disappoints

We always choose Inn at St. John when we stay in Portland, and we are never disappointed with any aspect of this lodging. The rooms are modern, quiet and clean, and yet are in an historic arrangement which I like because its how my grandmother traveled in style. Staff can answer any question and are very accommodating. AM nosh is appreciated, as well as the always-available tea/coffee. The location is easy to access, and there are several options for close and next-door parking. Mainers in the know stay here!

Great stay!

Absolutely loved this Inn. The room was full of character, very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was fine but it is held in very tight quarters and that was the only thing I wished was different. Maybe the tables

Great Little Inn

We have stayed at the Inn many times. It is an extremely pleasant and accommodating place. Our room is spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff is warm and friendly. For us, best of all is that the Inn welcomes guests with dogs. We will return to the Inn anytime we are in Portland. We never make use of the breakfast but there seems to be plenty choices available. Susan, Jay and Pearl

Absolutely Love this place!!!!

I really appreciated how organized and attentive front desk and all staff were. They really care that each room is clean and comfortable and I really experienced this. I would absolutely stay there again.

Nice Budget Inn, Short Distance from Downtown

3,8 en octubre 17, 2016

We stayed one night in Room 106. The room was spacious, the bed was comfortable, and the wifi worked well enough to stream video without issue. Everything was clean, and the staff were very helpful (for example, after dinner we walked in with a bottle of wine and the front desk immediately asked if we would like wine glasses brought to our room). The breakfast is along the lines of what you'd find at a Holiday Inn, but it was nice that bottled water, coffee, and cookies are stocked. It's more like a hotel than a Bed and Breakfast, but it felt like a great value compared to the other B&B and hotel options in downtown Portland. Location was fine-- there is a grocery store and several casual restaurants nearby. We took an Uber to the Old Port district (~$5) and walked home (~20 minutes) without issue.

Our favorite place to stay in Portland!

5 en octubre 17, 2016

Traveling North needed a place to break the trip up. We've always stayed at the Inn when our daughter lived in Portland.

Great Value B&B

My fiance and I stayed at the Inn at St John when I ran the Maine Half Marathon due to its close proximity to the race start. The inn was cute and had its own charm - lots of stairs, and did not notice if they had an elevator. Our room was larger than expected, and we had a private hall bath. Rooms and bathroom were very clean. The breakfast was average - an assortment of pastries, fruit, and cereal. Overall, the location was good, and relatively close to downtown. It was perfect for what we were looking for.

The 1:00 check-in time attracted me to the Inn at St. John. vs hotels in the area. As we could get settled prior to our 3:00 tour. Very friendly and informative staff. Room with 1 double and 1 queen bed was quite roomy for 4 adults. Convenient location with having a car.

Inn makes a good impression beginning with the front door. I immediately liked it. Very pleasant staff. I will certainly stay here again.

Truly charming, like staying with a friend

4,6 en octubre 08, 2016

Though I'd read a ton of positive reviews of the Inn at St. John, I still had slight doubts about it until we arrived. The only room available in our price range had a bathroom down the hall instead of in our room, and I was concerned about this. It turned out to still be delightful. They provided cushy bathrobes and slippers, and the bathroom was literally the door next to our room. It was just like staying at a friend's house where you go out in the hallway to get to the bathroom. Except even better, because ours was a private bath, so we didn't have to worry about anyone else being in there. The staff were all incredibly pleasant and helpful, our room was comfortable (a little small, but they did a good job describing it when I made the reservation), and the continental breakfast was lovely. The whole place was very clean, and the location was excellent. I couldn't believe that we found someplace within walking distance of downtown for this price! I would highly recommend the Inn at St. John and will probably stay there again myself the next time I'm in Portland.

great stay

4,4 en octubre 08, 2016

The only reason onsite dining rated low was because it was a very small area and became crowded quite fast. Could have supplied just a bit more continental type foods to have a better variety of food. Overall, I would definitely recommend it and stay there again.

Brief but comfortable visit

4,6 en octubre 05, 2016

I was in Portland for just one night. Inn at St John was within a short drive to downtown and Old Port. Room was clean and comfortable. Front desk staff were terrific. Hotel is a good value. I didn't have breakfast at the hotel since I was joining family for brunch.

Lovely place to stay

3,4 en octubre 04, 2016

I started my two week holiday by staying at The Inn at St. John. Glenn at the front desk greeted me warmly when I arrived, gave me ideas of places to eat within walking distance. I support his recommendation of the Thai Restuarant ; )) Prior to my arrival Julian was very helpful with my questions when I phoned. My room was small, yet cozy and I had everything I could need make myself comfortable. Right down to a bathrobe and slippers. The only downside to my experience was a gentleman named Miles at the front desk. I asked a question the morning I was leaving and his answer was rude and condescending. His smart aleck attitude was the only negative element of my two night stay.

Delightful Inn!

Stayed at The Inn at St.John for a couple of nights in the beginning of September 2016. Though slightly away from downtown area, we either walked 20mins to downtown or took a cab for $7. This is the only fault we can find. The rest exceeded our expectations. Would definitely stay here again.

Quaint and Ecclectic

3,2 en septiembre 11, 2016

We arrived by Amtrak-- leaving by ferry to Nova Scotia next day. Of the many options in the area, the Inn at St John seemed the most interesting. We were not disappointed. We chose a first floor room, since our foldable bikes were in our bags and heavy. Although the Inn offers to help with luggage to upper floors (there are no elevators) we thought better of it. The Inn is quite close to the commercial port district. Its all walkable. In the morning we found a nice loop to run down to the water and around to the port area that avoided much of the crowded commercial district. Continental style breakfast served in a narrow area off the main lobby. It's a bit difficult to get around when breakfast time arrives.

Lovely European style

Very special place

The Inn at St. John was absolutely perfect romantic getaway for my boyfriend and I. The rooms were clean, and the staff provided everything we needed. They also let me bring my 9-month old Bernese Mountain Dog for the trip, and always welcomed us in with huge smiles. They also SPOILED my girl with treats every we came back in. We will definitely be back to this cozy inn.

Inn at St. John

We always choose the Inn and St. John and were not disappointed this time around! The rooms are very simple but clean and equipped with everything you might need. For the area, the price is quite reasonable. This time we opted for a shared bathroom rather than private, but it practically felt private anyway which was really great. We recommend the Inn at St. John to all of our friends when they visit Portland.

Good value

The room was nice, but small. I loved the fact that water and good strong coffee were available all day.

Great dog friendly spot and service

I stayed in a small European style value room, which was perfect for a single person. The inn was clean, comfortable, and the staff were very, very helpful. The value was great, compared to other places. The best part was having such a truly dog-friendly staff and service! I will be staying here again! The walk from the hotel to downtown is not as much as it first seems and Portland being such a walkable city, it was great! I put a lower rating for on-site dining because Portland has such amazing food in the downtown area that the choices here were underwhelming and I didn't even try.

A great experience

4,8 en agosto 29, 2016

We always find that a great hotel determines our impression of the whole city. We had a wonderful experience in Portland and we credit the Inn at St John for much of it. From the coconut almond cream pie at Tandem Coffee to the "best friends" we made at Salvage BBQ, the Inn at St John was at its heart. Such a charming, clean and character-filled hotel! Thank you for anchoring our fondest memories of Portland.

We opted for a full size Bed and a hallway bath. The bath was fine, the only surprise was that the room was not much bigger then the bed. A little tight. But the Inn itself was clean and charming.

Enjoyed our stay

2,6 en agosto 28, 2016

Overall this b&b met our expectations - the room was clean, tidy and a decent size. The hallway bathroom was also fine. Nothing was particularly outstanding, however. There's room for improvement - the breakfast area could be expanded to increase capacity - if you're not at breakfast early you may have to wait for a table. Overall a pleasant stay but could improve on value for money.

Great option for a B&B

3,6 en agosto 26, 2016

The room we had was very nice, and clean. We had a shared bath. There are stairs that are steep, so prepare to carry your luggage if you are staying on an upper floor. It's an interesting building, and the stay was very nice. The breakfast was continental.

I stayed in this charming B&B for one night. I stayed in a small room with a twin sized bed. It was perfect for one person, and very quaint. The service at the inn is great and the staff is helpful and friendly. A kind staff member helped me with my luggage on the stairs. The building itself is beautiful, with interesting furnishings and historic architecture. The Inn at St. John set a wonderful tone for my stay in Portland.

Overall a great experience

4,4 en agosto 23, 2016

The Inn was very charming and we enjoyed our stay. All of the employees were very helpful and accommodating and the location was pretty good - about a 20 minute walk from downtown Portland. However, I would suggest a few changes. The pillows were extremely uncomfortable - as soon as you put your head on it the stuffing would flatten. Also, as many of the rooms have a private hall bathroom, it would have been really nice to dim the hall lights so I wasn't blinded each time I used the restroom at night. Relatedly, putting nightlights in the bathroom would've been helpful. Other than that, it was a great experience, and those are just minor suggestions!

Amazing Stay

If you have a sense of adventure and enjoy new experiences, you will love the Inn at St John.

I had a great stay at the Inn at St. John. The inn was clean and pleasant (everything worked!), staff members were friendly and helpful, and the price was right, especially for such a convenient location. The website does a good job of alerting customers about the size of the rooms and the lack of an elevator, so these were not surprises (and certainly not a problem). I didn't sample the included breakfast because I had a breakfast meeting, but the coffee sure smelled great!

Quaint little Inn with exceptional service

5 en agosto 22, 2016

We stayed at the Inn at St. John for 3 nights during our stay in Portland, and we loved it! Our room was adorable, with a very comfortable queen size bed and attached bathroom. We can't say enough about the service - every single person was incredibly friendly and helpful, the room was clean, and the continental breakfast was delicious. The price was reasonable and there are no hidden fees. And they have cookies, bottled water, coffee, and ice tea available for guests all day at no charge!

Perfect for our Needs

4,2 en agosto 17, 2016

The staff was extremely helpful and the room was exactly what we were looking for to spend a weekend in Portland. My wife and I would definitely stay here again if the opportunity presents itself.

Absolutely loved this place!

4,4 en agosto 15, 2016

Our three night stay here was really wonderful. The staff at the Inn at St John could very well be the most friendly that I have encountered. Every single one of them was both genuinely friendly and helpful. I would recommend going for one of the luxury rooms, plenty of space and the jetted tubs are a nice feature. I was very impressed with how well our room was sound proofed. We were very close to the front desk and never heard a thing. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Quaint and Comfortable

4,2 en agosto 15, 2016

We arrived pretty late in the evening, the check-in staff was very helpful and accommodating. The room was just what we were looking for, a clean bed, sink, plenty of towels and a window AC unit... Oh that was the best, we are people that enjoy sleeping in cold cold temperature so we were able to get comfortable. Breakfast was good, just simple pastries, fruit, coffee, juice, the usual. Only complaint would be the shared bathroom, the toilet and sink were clean however, the shower was cloggggged, it was gross to shower and stand in inches of water.

Inn at St. John - unique and fun place to stay!

As things unfolded, and partly due to southwest's massive computer outage last month, I had to cancel my Inn reservations. The Inn was of course understanding and issued me two full-value gift certificates good for a year. As I know I will be staying there again within the year, I did not request a refund. This is a charming and convenient place to stay when visiting Portland.

Very pleasant

4,4 en agosto 03, 2016

We did not eat onsite, which is why I gave it a 3. Other than that it was a great experience and we would definitely stay there again!

A gem

4,6 en agosto 01, 2016

Nicely appointed Inn / We stayed on the first floor executive King . Very comfortable and quiet. Staff was extremely gracious and helpful. A bit out of the way from downtown, we were able to uber or cab. Finding a parking space downtown Portland in high season is very challenging and expensive. Would stay here again

Third time staying & all were good

3,8 en julio 31, 2016

This place is so affordable for Portland! Friendly desk help is nice. Breakfast is continental but fresh with yogurt, fruit, cereal, bagels, muffins, etc. and doesn't feel like you are just eating food directly from a plastic package. The rooms are unique and clean, but quite variable for size and some have shared baths. I prefer the private bath, even if it's across the hall with your own key, it's a lot more convenient than having to wait. If you call ahead for room selection I've found that really helpful for making the choice that's good for you. Be aware that there is no elevator and some rooms are up a steep stairway--not at all a problem for us but others might want to be on a lower floor. Overall a great value for Portland (maybe 20 minute walk to old port section?) and we will be back!

I stayed for the weekend and enjoyed the free cookies and helpful staff. The staff helped me to find my way to the sites I wanted to see and offered suggestions for places to go on the rainy days. It's an easy walking distance to downtown Portland. The rooms are ok. You pay for what you get (I had one of the rooms on the top floor, small, with shared bathroom; but what I expected). The bathrooms were kept very clean which was great especially given the fact that it was shared. There is a great BBQ place 2 blocks away that was fabulous.

Happy, helpful staff.

Luxury amenities for a reasonable price!

I found the Inn at St. John so charming. We stayed in #108 (one of the "luxury" rooms with a jetted tub). This most definitely would have cost more at other places in Portland and we had a wonderful, hassle free stay.

The Inn is superb. Very comfortable, large rooms. Good location, especially for the baseball. Only slight hiccup is there's not a lot of room for breakfast - the food is fine (the muffins in particular!), but you just have to time it right to get a seat.

Charming & Sweet

There's something about a place that still uses real keys to unlock the door. Definitely a hotel size with the feel of a bed and breakfast. Perfect for our stay, met or exceeded expectations. I would recommend!

Inn at St. John

3,2 en julio 07, 2016

The website indicated that the inn was in walking distance to downtown. It was not. If I had known that I would have to drive after a night out I would have chosen a cheaper hotel elsewhere.

Great location!

4,6 en julio 06, 2016

We recently stayed at the Inn at St. John while in town for a wedding and couldn't have been happier. It is located very close to the Portland Transportation Center (Amtrak and Conchord Coach Lines) and is only a few miles from downtown and Old Port. We utilized walking or Uber for most of our transportation in town with no issue. I can't review the food too well as I have dietary restrictions and was unable to eat most of it. They do have a sign indicating they occasionally can offer a small gluten free menu if requested, but I often didn't have time in the mornings to bother. Either way, it wasn't a big deal to me. We will stay again the next time we are able to come visit!

Great B and B

3,6 en julio 05, 2016

My room was on the top floor of the building. The stairs were very narrow and steep- just fine for me and really what you might expect in an old B and B. The service was very good. I would stay there again.

Very nice place.

Out of town taxi was $9 better than trying to park going back in July. Breakfast was all there to help yourself . Pastries, cereal, yoghurts tea coffee, English muffins , bagels , muffins just so good.

A little out of the center but a wonderful place to stay. Great staff, nice room and a nice ambiance.

Good times

3,4 en junio 28, 2016

The Inn was cute and quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There isn't much around in that area but it's a short taxi ride to downtown.

Portland, ME and St. John Inn

3,2 en junio 28, 2016

The St. John Inn is a clean and affordable way to get the most of Portland. It is about a 15-20 minute walk to the water and almost every restaurant/bar/shop in Portland. The staff was respectful and I was always greeted with a smile even when returning very late at night. I will be returning to this Inn again next time I am in Portland.

Consistently Lovely

4,4 en junio 28, 2016

I have stayed at the Inn at St Johns several times over the past 20 years or so and have found it to be consistently pleasant and welcoming. Very convenient to downtown and arts district - a long walk or short uber ride away.

Our weekend stay in June!

4,6 en junio 27, 2016

My husband and I recently stayed at St. John's Inn. It was perfect! We took the greyhound in, and the location was practically across the street. The staff are friendly. Our room was extremely clean, and cozy. We were extremely comfortable. The walk to the downtown area wasn't far (at least for us!) we are New Yorkers and walking is our trade. It's about a 15 min walk to the arts district, and about 20 min to the waterfront. Be sure to eat at Local Sprouts, Portland Lobster Co when you are there, and if you've willingly the cash to burn, The Fore restaurant! It was magical. Amazing food and coffee shops so close to the Inn. We'll be back. Continental breakfast is simple and exactly what you'd expect, but it's a nice gesture. We'll be back for sure!!

"Bed & Breakfast" a misnomer

3,6 en junio 25, 2016

This inn is quite nice and very convenient, but the breakfast was similar to what you would find at your average motel - just a limited selection of cold cereal, muffins, and croissants. The cookies in the evenings, however, are excellent!

My experience

4,2 en junio 25, 2016

This Inn is very lovely. The decor has been maintained in this charming building but modernized to accommodate expectations. The in room refrigerator was a plus & the staff were so helpful & professional. We were on the second floor & the stairs are rather steep but they offer to have staff bring luggage up & down, right to the car for comfort. Location good for local activities. A do over for me.

Lovely Inn

3,8 en junio 22, 2016

Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are very clean with plenty of fresh towels, plus they provide bath robes and slippers for your comfort

Another Great Stay

5 en junio 20, 2016

4th time staying here, 2nd time in the same room (108, first floor suite). Such a great value, friendly staff, convenient stopping point on my annual trip to Machias. Always clean, really good coffee, great price for what you receive. I will be back year after year.

Best choice B&B in Portland

5 en junio 16, 2016

I chose the Inn at St. John for it's price and location. I was looking for a nice private room reasonably close to downtown. What I was not expecting was the outstanding service of the staff or the amenities. I wish I could remember the name of the gentleman who checked us in because he set the high water mark for hotel service. The fact that there was a plate of cookies 24 hours and the quality of the breakfast didn't hurt either.

Great low cost place to stay!

4,6 en junio 15, 2016

I found this place online and it had good reviews so I booked it for a night. Well turns out they were right, it was really nice there. The room was clean and the place had an old fashion charm. The continental breakfast seating area was small and tight, however all the food was good and they even give out complimentary water and have coffee and tea on hand the whole day. I would stay here again!

Fun weekend in Portland, Maine

4,6 en junio 12, 2016

The Inn at St John is a hotel I return to often when visiting Portland. the rooms are quirky and fun, the staff is the best in the city, and the location cannot be beat! Free parking and free wifi just add to the pleasure of staying here. All of downtown Portland is a very short walk from the hotel.

Best in Portland

5 en junio 09, 2016

Courteous staff. Fine rooms. Not the best neighborhood, but that's ok given all else.

Solid hotel

4,6 en junio 07, 2016

No on site dining so please ignore the 5 star rating. Stayed in room 4C "the penthouse." Very nice and quiet. Bathroom down the hall. Maid forgot to service room one night. I would definitely stay there again. Quaint and price is right.

A lovely stay in Portland

4,8 en junio 07, 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at this inn. It is a little outside the main downtown area but still very accessible for all the sights, restaurants etc. The rooms are lovely and the beds are very comfortable. Tea, coffee and homemade biscuits are provided all day, a nice touch. Portland is a beautiful place and I would stay here again if returning.

May in at ast John

Great spot very friendly personnel

What a GREAT place!

4,8 en junio 06, 2016

I loved the Inn. The King Suite was exactly what I'd hoped for. Everything was clean and the provisions of slippers and a robe were a nice touch. Furthermore, the staff were kind and helpful. I did need to Febreeze my room because pets are welcome but it was fine afterwards. The breakfast was solid and the night treats were an added bonus.

Enjoyable stay

4,6 en junio 02, 2016

Second stay at the Inn was as pleasant as the first. The staff is friendly, polite, and helpful.

The staff was amazingly nice!

Excellent as always

4,4 en junio 02, 2016

The only issue I have is that the wifi, while greatly appreciated, was slow and spotty at best. Other than that, I can't say enough good things about The Inn at St. John.

Great Secret in Portland!

Great place to stay if you are in Portland Maine! Dogs Welcomed!

Great stay, cozy space, and perfect location!

4,4 en mayo 31, 2016

The room was small, but quaint and cozy and exactly what you would want and hope for in a historic inn. The staff was all very friendly and helpful, and the room and inn was clean. The inn is close to the Sea Dog's stadium and a short ride to downtown-- Definitely will stay again!

the best of Portland

4,2 en mayo 28, 2016

I've found the Inn at St John to be the best combination of value and location in Portland. It's intown but not downtown so the rooms aren't $300 a night. It was built in the 1890s so it doesn't have the sterile atmosphere of the cheaper chain motels. I've been staying exclusively at the Inn at St John for several years. The rooms are always super clean and the staff is very cordial and accommodating. I'm looking forward to my next stay.

Great value (as usual)!

4,2 en mayo 26, 2016

A really good deal in Portland. Not far from the main adresses of this great little city!

Cute and Affordable

4,6 en mayo 24, 2016

I stayed here for a one night trip to Portland. The rooms and the whole hotel are very cute! The room I was in had a shared hallway bathroom which wasn't a problem at all and the bathroom was kept very clean and I never had a wait to use it. The breakfast area is a little small, but I appreciated the options available. This hotel is about a 30 minute walk to the Old Port area of town, but the price is unbeatable in Portland. I would definitely recommend the inn at St. John to anyone!

Great Place for a family weekend

4,6 en mayo 22, 2016

Very pleasant B&B for a weekend getaway. Our rooms were very clean, attractive and comfortable. We liked the low-key atmosphere and friendliness of the staff and guests. The breakfast area is very small, but we were able to take our breakfast foods back to our rooms on the first floor. We had plenty of room to dine at the table in our room. We would stay there again if we get back to Portland.

A great little hotel in Portland

4,4 en mayo 21, 2016

This is a very nice hotel. I stayed here while I was attending a convention in Portland. This is one classic hotel, very clean.

Really Nice Place to Stay in Portland

Nice older building; very well maintained and well kept. Nothing fancy, but very nice and very clean. Walking distance to downtown. Great staff.

nice stay

Very nice hotel, great and helpful staff, comfortable beds, and a good breakfast bar. I definitely would recommend staying here. It's a gem.

My favorite part of this hotel was the free water bottles and cookies 24/7. Bravo! Would stay again.

Fabulous Experience

This was a great hotel with outstanding staff. It is a little ways away from the things to do, but within a pleasant walking distance. Value was excellent! Highly recommended!

The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The rooms were exactly as advertised.

Great Place to Stay in Portland

Very nice rooms; wonderfully friendly staff, and easy walking distance to downtown Portland. This will be my go-to place for future visits.


4,6 en mayo 09, 2016

I have stayed at the Inn several times. It is quiet, clean, and very economical.

Looking forward to coming back here!

4,6 en mayo 04, 2016

The room is small, but clean and in a cute vintage style. All staff here are super nice and helpful. It was a nice stay and I wish I could stay longer!

Third time, still a charm

3,8 en mayo 03, 2016

My favorite place to stay on my irregular visits to Portland. Different rooms each time and never a bad one. Excellent staff who are always pleasant and helpful. Rooms are clean. It's not downtown but it's a great location nonetheless. A walk downtown via Park Ave and through Deering Oaks Park is a great way to start the day.

A nice surprise

5 en abril 30, 2016

We enjoyed the off street parking, cost and amenities at the Inn at St. Joh. Found out later many friends also stay here whenever in Portland. Loved parking the car and walking to our destinations

Very impressed

Great staff, great price, great room, best time

Pleasantly Surprised

4,8 en abril 29, 2016

We found the cost to be more than affordable and were so impressed with the small details.

Wonderful inn in Portland Maine

4,2 en abril 28, 2016

I have stayed at this inn many times when in Portland. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful, continental breakfast is good (even includes some gluten-free goodies at times), rooms are very clean and it is conveniently just off the highway and local restaurants are close by.

Repeat visitor

4,4 en abril 25, 2016

My daughter and I recently stayed on either end of a trip. We've stayed before, so this trip met our expectations. The Inn is pleasant, clean, and affordable. We appreciate the charm of the place and the other travelers we meet. Parking is convenient. WIll continue to plan visits to Portland and stay at the Inn at St John.

Lovely stay

4,4 en abril 25, 2016

Our room was spacious with everything we could want. Having a dog with us was no problem and we all had a wonderful time. The fourth floor is difficult on older knees.

I enjoyed my stay at the location was fair value was great I and I really appreciate the service from the staff helpful and kind thanks guys

My review

Clean, Vintage, Affordable

Wonderful B&B with affordable prices that is also a quick walk away from Hadlock Field, home of the Portland Sea Dogs.

Excellent Value, Great Accommodations, & Friendly Staff

4,0 en abril 21, 2016

We've stayed at the Inn at St. John every time we've visited Portland over the last several years and have never been disappointed. The rooms are fresh and clean, the breakfasts and snacks are generous and of very good quality, the staff is friendly and helpful, off-street parking is adjacent to the Inn, and we continue to find it an excellent value.

Good value & service, a real gem

3,6 en abril 21, 2016

I've stayed at Inn at St. John many times over the past five years and will return. I usually stay in rooms with double beds and private baths. These have all been exceptional, especially for the value. My latest stay, however, was a twin room with private bath, #3A. This room is at the top of the stairs from the main lobby, which is convenient, but the walls are very thin and it's noisy. I could hear conversations in the next room. Unsettling. The room and bathroom are clean, well-appointed and comfortable otherwise. The exception is the bedding. The sheets were a slippery synthetic, satin-like fabric that would not stay on the mattress. I discussed this with the staff in the morning and suggested that basic white cotton hotel sheets would be an improvement. The front desk staff is always great and they assured me that they would notify the owner of my request. This Inn is one of the best values in Portland--a real gem--and I will certainly return. Next time, I'll ask for a double room on a higher floor, though.

Simply Adore the Inn at St. John!

5 en abril 19, 2016

I love this hotel. It's beautiful. Clean. Attention paid to detail. They've thought of every need so you don't have to ask! The service was friendly. I always look for an available room here before I search other hotels. Thank-you for a great stay!!

Great experience overall!

4,6 en abril 17, 2016

Excellent value and great customer service. Stayed here for a conference.

A gem in portland

We were here just for the night for a little time just my husband and I. We were very impressed by the price of the room and its apperance. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

I Love the Inn at St John

4,6 en abril 12, 2016

Elegant atmosphere. Great location on Congress Street. The folks who work there are so friendly and helpful to visitors. A great value. Very fair room prices and free parking. I've stayed here four times and just adore it. The best!

Charming and very helpful.

4,4 en abril 11, 2016

This inn made every effort to make my stay enjoyable. During my stay a problem with my room was quickly fixed and the staff went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable. The rooms were very clean and charming. The staff was professional and caring.

Loved the European charm!

Great place, great value! Hope to stay there again.

Very good attention and nice building

Everything was perfect expect the size of the bed that was a little narrow for my husband and I. They accepted our golden retriever without problems and Gluten free breakfast!

St John-- great!

4,2 en abril 04, 2016

Great rooms and service! Small for rooms in the US but it was all we needed and great for the price. Near transportation into the city and a nice walk from downtown. Would rec ground floor if you have trouble with stairs as the stairs are a bit steep. Loved it and would stay again :)

Two Days in Portland

4,2 en abril 01, 2016

This hotel was reasonably priced, clean, and friendly. We walked to Old Port in about 30 minutes. It's not bad to walk after eating so well around Portland anyways. Some weird characters in the neighborhood, but kind of par for the course being right next to a major hospital and train station. Parking was easy and plentiful. We would definitely stay here again. Savage BBQ down the street was amazing also and so close.

On site dining is not available but you know that when you book. They do however have a nice continental breakfast.

4,6 en marzo 30, 2016

I love this place. Have been there many times and have never had an unsatisfactory stay. They do allow dogs but you would never know it. The rooms are spotless and smell so clean. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Portland, unless they were booked!

Better than Expected

4,6 en marzo 28, 2016

My expectations were exceeded staying at this Inn. The only comment I could make is the breakfast could have been better, but it certainly was not poor. Typical breakfast at a hotel.


4,6 en marzo 27, 2016

Everything was fabulous, the only issue was a luke warm shower!

Fantastic stay

4,6 en marzo 27, 2016

I definitely plan on staying again the next time I am in Portland.

A Nice Night

4,2 en marzo 27, 2016

My girlfriend and I stayed in a room with private path and one double bed. The room and bathroom were small compared to a chain hotel, but understandable considering the old building; certainly not too small to be comfortable. Very friendly staff and neat historic building. The only negative thing I've to say is that decorative, outer blanket (not one that you sleep with) on the bed was dirty. A much nicer experience than staying at a chain hotel, and at near the same or even a better price. Will definitely be staying here the next time we visit Portland. FYI, Pizza Villa, across the street, is convenient and has good food.

Good place to stay

Close enough to everything

5 en marzo 23, 2016

This Inn is a lil gem. Me and my aunt had appointments at Soakology. The Inn is less than a mile to walk from. If you don't mind walking it's so close to restaurants and shopping areas that Portland has to offer. The best part is it's ease to find off the highway. I would definitely stay there again.

Delightful, Reasonable priced hotel

4,6 en marzo 20, 2016

This has been our third stay at Inn at St. John. The rooms are very pleasant and this is one of the better deals in Portland. We especially appreciate the free parking and free breakfast. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We will be staying here in the future.

A Place with Character and Charm

3,6 en marzo 20, 2016

Wonderful, friendly place that made me and my dogs feel welcomed and at home. Highly recommended. Perfect alternative to the bigger, soulless, corporate hotels. I'll definitely stay here again. Best accommodations in Portland!

Great Surprise in Portland

4,8 en marzo 18, 2016

I LOVED staying at the Inn at St. John. The staff was incredibly friendly, helpful, and accommodating. My room was adorable and perfect for 1 person. The breakfast was delicious and they even had soy milk for cereal! The apples were amazing. (Hey, it's the little things!) The pizza restaurant across the street is quaint and Tandem Bakery up the street is mouth watering. I didn't need anything at all during my stay and would highly recommend this place to others.

Loved it

5 en marzo 15, 2016

Really enjoyed our stay! The room was much bigger than I was expecting and had a sink, mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Really liked the accommodations.

Great stay

4,6 en marzo 13, 2016

This was a lovely inn. Great atmosphere, right near downtown Portland, and amazing value. If I ever visit Portland again I'll be staying here.

A wonderful, home-away-from-home place in downtown Portland [ME].

A great find!

4,8 en febrero 20, 2016

A charming place, conveniently located in Portland. It was small, but very clean and accessible to all Portland spots. We definitely will always try here first when staying in Portland.

Great stay at the Inn at St John's

4,6 en febrero 16, 2016

We had a great time staying here! We were thrilled with the proximity to downtown Portland and good places to eat. The room itself was clean and spacious. The continental breakfast was a nice spread and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating all around. We will be back!


4,0 en febrero 16, 2016

Stayed in a king room with a private bathroom. If on a romantic weekend, I highly recommend securing an in-room bathroom as some rooms share with the floor. Loved the charm of this place. Very value-oriented. Expect to be about a mile from where everything is happening (a $10 cab ride; don't get duped!) Breakfast spread is fair, but don't expect much (at one point, realized the yogurt I picked up from the continental breakfast was expired). Overall, perfect for an economical getaway.

Clean, Comfortable & Affordable

4,4 en febrero 16, 2016

Incredibly winter deal!! Love the charm of the building and details--high ceilings, wainscoting but with modern appliances and conveniences (TV, micro, fridge.) This was a great getaway for a winter night.

Great stay! Highly recommend!

Great value for staying near downtown Portland. Charming interior, clean and very friendly!

New favorite Portland digs

Affordable, functional, great people. It's all I need in an inn. Thank you

What a treasure !

4,4 en febrero 15, 2016

I so appreciate this charming hotel and the welcome I find every time I must stay over in Portland. The rooms are excellent, the service friendly and efficient, the price an amazing bargain. And I love being one block away from several good restaurants and next-door to a fascinating Asian market. Comfort and convenience: It's like a home away from home.


4,8 en febrero 12, 2016

Our most recent stay (we're repeat customers!) was great. The rooms are always clean and well presented with a balance of Victorian style touches and modern amenities. The staff is pleasant and always willing to help, going so far as to clean off our car after an overnight snowstorm. Complimentary water and snacks are available and they are a great addition - having good water available after a walk into downtown is perfect. The continental breakfast is also one of the best I've encountered because the space feels welcoming while being cozy and styled. The selection of food is satisfying without being gimmicky (here's looking at you ugly waffle machines at "box" hotels). Another bonus is the lack of smoking - the building smells fresh!

Another lovely stay here

4,2 en febrero 10, 2016

We have been staying at the Inn for several years now, and every time the staff is warm and welcoming, rooms are clean and fresh smelling, the place has all the feel of a luxury inn without the sky-high prices. Strongly recommend.

Great Experience at Inn at St. John

4,2 en febrero 09, 2016

Staff went way above and beyond - so impressed

Always Accommodating and the Best Price in Portland

4,8 en febrero 09, 2016

Inn at St. John is more than you can ask for when you combine price and quality. The entire staff goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable and hassle free. We had travel issues arise before arriving and they made the need to change our reservation (twice) a non-issue. They could not have been more helpful and understanding.

The get away

4,0 en febrero 06, 2016

It was a great place. I went on the recommendation of a friend. I was a little spectacle about it but it was very nice clean and the staff was super. Over all it was a great get away weekend.

Great historic Inn to stay at!

3,8 en febrero 03, 2016

We stayed at the Inn at St.John for two nights. It was a lovely Inn! We loved how quaint it was, and the important history for the Inn at St.John (it is the longest continuously running hotel in Portland, Maine). The staff were super helpful and our room was nice. Continental breakfast was included which helped make the mornings easier, and for the price we paid, it was awesome! We definitely plan to stay there again sometime soon!

Very nice stay

4,2 en febrero 02, 2016

The inn is very lovely and my room was quiet and private. The only thing I wasn't a fan of was when I sat on my bed, it sounded like it sat on a metal platform, so every time you sat on the bed it would make a loud drum sound. Other than that it was just fine for a one-night stay.

Great time at the Inn at St. John

5 en enero 31, 2016

I enjoyed myself quite a bit at the Inn at St. John. It had an old timey feel to it, but was quite comfortable and modern. The breakfast provided every morning had a decent variety of things and was really tasty. The staff was friendly and places to eat were close by (this matters when you can only walk to new places and want to try different things). All in all, I had a wonderful time and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place to stay.

Wonderful Stay

5 en enero 30, 2016

Excellent expperience, will return the next time we are in town.

Early flight next morning

4,2 en enero 29, 2016

Very nice room, love the decor. I had a 5AM flight, so being 90+ mins North, I wanted to stay over night in Portland. I work late & I didn't want to spend a ton of money for just one short night; prices here are very reasonable! The service is always exceptional! They even packed me a bagel to go! I use this Inn when I just need a night away too!

So charming

4,2 en enero 22, 2016

The one place to stay in Portland. Everything was way much better than our expectations!

Good place. Nothing great but good place for price

Its an OK place . But very very clean

Had a Great Time :)

4,2 en enero 16, 2016

My partner and I stayed for one night and did not spend much time at the Inn, but our experience was nonetheless enjoyable. Apparently the room we stayed in is only meant for one person, but we felt there was more than enough space for the two of us (we're pretty cozy people). The front desk people were kind and informative and the aesthetic of the building and rooms was very nice. The location was good, close to a variety of restaurants and cafés. The shared bathrooms was a slight inconvenience but we were aware of it ahead of time and knew what we were getting into so there's no point in complaining. Considering that this is by far the least expensive place to stay that I found in Portland I am very happy with my stay at the Inn at St. John and would recommend it to anyone staying in the Portland area so long as they are comfortable with smaller sized rooms.

A Really Good Value

4,2 en enero 08, 2016

The Inn has interesting rooms..each one is different..and a lot of old world charm. The staff is very helpful and personable. The breakfast is average but the coffee is very good and there are several choices for breakfast. I have stayed there several times and plan to again when I am in Portland.

Overnight stay was great! Amenities were outstanding! Staff were very helpful in helping me troubleshoot a problem with the public access printer so that I could print my boarding pass.

Outstanding As Always

4,8 en enero 06, 2016

Stayed at the Inn at St. John's on New Years Eve and for a few days after. As alway, everything was great. Rooms are the best value in Portland. Clean, comfortable with everything you need. If you are looking for great value without sacrificing quality this is it. Short drive, cab/Uber ride in colder temps or a nice stroll in warmer times to the Old Port area.

Great place to stay -- looking forward to our next visit!

4,0 en enero 05, 2016

We were driving through Portland so we needed a room for one night. We were so happy to find the Inn at St John because it seemed like a great location, in an interesting building (not an anonymous big chain hotel), and they allow dogs. We wish we could've stayed longer (it was our first time in the city), so we'll definitely be back!

Best value in Portland!

4,0 en enero 05, 2016

If you're tired of the sterile (and often noisy) feel of the "Brand Name" hotels, then this little gem of an inn is for you. Rooms are charming, clean, unique, and well appointed. The staff is always helpful and you can't beat the price. Because no room is identical, a phone inquiry will help you choose the room best suited for you. We've never been disappointed any time we've stayed, and we try to visit at least once a year.

Charming hotel near the downtown !

4,8 en enero 05, 2016

The staff is very welcoming and smiling !

I love it here

4,4 en enero 04, 2016

I don't mind sharing the bathroom at all. This place is awesome, and I love visiting Portland and staying here. One time we brought bikes with us, but that's not necessary since the walk to town isn't bad at all.

Nice getaway spot.

4,8 en enero 04, 2016

We really enjoyed our night away. Very quiet and quant. Will stay here again.

Wonderful stay

4,4 en enero 04, 2016

Great place but the private bathroom in the hall was quite far from the room. Breakfast was simple but had a wide variety of choices. Location excellent and quiet. We would go back for sure.

Always enjoyable

4,6 en enero 03, 2016

The only place my wife and I stay! Always quiet, clean, functional, and friendly! The breakfast is pretty comprehensive by US standards, and the milk+cookies throughout the day are always welcome. We will return as we have for the past 4+ years!

Good value for money

Good accommodation if travelling on a budget. To get into town you would need a car, take a taxi or walk 30-40 minutes.

We'll be coming back!

We stayed for one night after my brother's wedding, and it was a wonderful experience. The room was beautiful, clean, and cozy, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They even recommended a few music clubs to catch a show and some Nice restaurants. We will definitely be back there the next time we go to Maine! I'm glad that the hotel stop on our way home ended up being a fun cozy stay. It was the perfect end to our mini vacation.

Christmas in Portland

4,4 en diciembre 30, 2015

This is the first place I check out for reservations when staying in Portland. Does not have the rarely used extras as the larger hotels nearby (gym, pool, etc), so you can often find a room for 1/2 to 1/3 the cost. Some of the staff have been there for years and it's nice to see a familiar and friendly face when checking in.

Love this place!

4,4 en diciembre 30, 2015

I love this place...mostly because of its old charm....each room is unique. Very clean...affordable and the service is outstanding. ...this is my go to place!

Charming and cozy!

4,6 en diciembre 18, 2015

We stayed at the Inn for 3 nights! We absolutely loved it. Clean, convenient, and great price! We would definitely stay here again in the future!

Our new place to stay in Portland!

4,8 en diciembre 16, 2015

Super clean inn, polite and respectful staff, very convenient and a great value. It's very much like a lot of hotels in Europe. If you want a pool and other bells and whistles it's not for you. If you want a quaint historical building in a convenient location with free parking, a nice breakfast and great service this is the place for you. They even have great bathrobes!

gorgeous hotel priced well

4,8 en diciembre 14, 2015

We stayed for 6 nights and the room was beautiful, the hotel quaint and full of charm. The staff was friendly and the hotel is in a really good location, I would say only a half mile walk to downtown Portland. They are very dog friendly and we loved that!

Great historic cozy inn

4,6 en diciembre 09, 2015

This was a great place to spend the night in downtown portland. We absolutely loved the history and unique charm of the inn. The value was phenomenal and it is walking distance from the entertainment and restaurant venues downtown. Wonderful service and wonderful atmosphere!


4,6 en diciembre 09, 2015

I stayed a night with my friend. It was so good service and nice room. I booked the one with shared bathroom. The bathroom was pretty small and the shower area so small for me. It will be great if they have a rug in the bathroom.

Always a pleasure!

4,8 en diciembre 07, 2015

From the minute you walk in, you feel the nostalgia of the building, tastefully decorated with a warm friendly atmosphere. The staff are extremely friendly, cordial, and pleasant to deal with. They really do make you feel at home. The rooms combine old world architecture with modern amenities, a rare find indeed. Cleanliness is obviously a very high priority. as everything is impeccable. Plenty of towels and linens in the room, tastefully displayed. I have stayed here many times, and would recommend anyone staying in Portland to give them a try. You can not be anything but impressed!

Portland Get Away

4,4 en noviembre 25, 2015

Wonderful place to stay for those that don't want the usual, like staying in a place that is a feast for the eyes as well as restful for the body, and don't need On-site Dining. The Inn at St John is a wonderful step back in time and a real bargain. The breakfast served will get one going; although be sure to go out for coffee. The hot chocolate is just fine. If you want to take an afternoon nap be sure to use the Do Not Disturb sign. Housekeeping can come around on the late side.

great location, good price

4,6 en noviembre 24, 2015

Great place to stay if you are in the downtown area. Right near all of the shops, restaurants, and waterfront.

Love this place!

A Texan's Persepective

4,4 en noviembre 23, 2015

We had a wonderful stay at the inn. We stayed in a room that had a shared bath. The bathroom was always clean. The room was cleaned daily and fresh towels and robes were always provided. The receptionists were very helpful and gave tips on where to go and where to eat.

Convenient and Affordable

Just needed a room for one night for an early morning meeting on Saturday. Perfectly suited my needs.

Our Pied-a-Terre in Portland, Maine

4,0 en noviembre 21, 2015

We are a former New Yorker and a former Chicagoenne now living in a little town on the Mid-Coast of Maine. We need an occasional "urban fix", and Portland usually does the job for us. There may be finer more elegant inns and B&Bs in the Portland area, but the Inn at St. John is such a great value in the off-season (post-tourist) months that we can't resist coming back time and time again. We also recommend it to all our friends who almost all concur with our good opinion of the Inn's comfort, coziness, friendliness and value. We usually pick a room away from the rather noisy front on busy Congress Street and, having bad knees, stick with ground floor rooms, which are convenient and free from any lobby noise. We are always recognized and welcomed back, which is always nice. The breakfast is nothing special here, but if a big breakfast is your thing, Portland is full of great breakfast and brunch venues, many of them a short walk away.

November stay

3,8 en noviembre 18, 2015

Our second time in this hotel. Personable staff in a historic site. A good value with a continental breakfast.

Comfort and convenience

4,4 en noviembre 18, 2015

This is a charming Inn that will remind you of European travels. Each room is uniquely furnished and comfortable, though small perhaps. The afternoon cookies and free continental breakfast add to the hospitality, and the location is very convenient.

New England Charm at a Great Value

5 en noviembre 17, 2015

Our stay was everything we were looking for - a place with New England charm, a super clean room, friendly and helpful staff AND at a great value! If ever in the area again, we would definitely come back.

Nice place, nice price.

4,0 en noviembre 17, 2015

The Inn is a nice place to stay with friendly employees and very convenient parking. The bath was mostly clean minus a few hairs in the tub :( Bed and pillow were comfortable. Breakfast was basic as expected.

Best value in Portland

4,6 en noviembre 11, 2015

I have never been to a b&b before, if they are all like this it is the only way to go. The staff were friendly and professional. They were quick with suggestions for different activities in the area including where to get wine within walking distance. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable. We stayed in 2 rooms. The 3rd floor had beautiful 8ft ceilings and wonderful Victorian charm. The first floor room had a great brick wall, and jetted tub. I would recommend this hotel to everyone I know. The only bad things to say: no elevator and the 3rd floor room toilet had no room to sit on it. We stayed in rooms with private bathrooms, there are some without that. Those facts makes this hotel the best value in town, hands down.

Review of Inn at St. John, Portland, Maine

4,6 en noviembre 09, 2015

I was so thrilled with my visit at the Inn at St. John. We were in town for a conference and even though it was held at the Holiday Inn by the Bay, it was still walkable. The service was wonderful and the rooms were clean. I love how adorable the place is and not as stuffy and monotone as many hotel chains.

Cool spot in Portland

4,0 en noviembre 09, 2015

Overall, our stay at the Inn was great. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and room was good size. The bathroom was down the hall which was a bit odd, but it didn't bother us. Conveniently located about 5-10 minutes away from old port ($10 uber). It reminded us of being in a murser-mystery setting which was kind of cool. Would stay here again.

Great place to stay.

3,4 en noviembre 06, 2015

This is a charming boutique - like B&B. Bed was very comfortable, room temperature was comfortable & little extras like a min-fridge, bathrobes & slippers. The TV was a great size. Free unlimited bottled water & fresh baked cookies are in the lobby. The only problem was the lack of wi-fi connection, but since I didn't need it as much as someone who had to work, it wasn't an issue.

Great location, friendly staff, good value. Skip the breakfast

4,2 en noviembre 04, 2015

Great place, good value. Friendly staff. It would be nice to see them partner with a local bakery for some better breakfast choices for a higher quality muffin or croissant. We skipped the breakfast because it looked like your standard chain hotel continental with frozen muffins, etc. But They have cookies and bottled water and tea in the lobby all the time which was very nice.

A great deal

4,0 en noviembre 02, 2015

I really enjoyed the charm of this place. I found that for the price it was a great deal. Really a unique place!

Comfortable and moderately priced

3,2 en octubre 30, 2015

Our room was comfortable and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This was our third time staying at the Inn and it has always been positive.

Another pleasant stay at the Inn at St John

4,8 en octubre 26, 2015

This inn never disappoints - the staff is friendly and the rooms are great. We go to Portland a couple times of year and find this a great value. Normally we'd walk up the hill to downtown Portland but with some dicey weather, we were able to grab the bus right outside the hotel. The stairs are steep so best to stay at a ground floor room if you have climbing issues.

Not a B&B but great for what it is!

4,0 en octubre 24, 2015

Look, let's be up front: this hotel is not going to be for everyone. It's advertised as "European Style". What that means is: This is an old property. The rooms are tiny. The bathroom is a separate room, across the hall. There is no elevator and there are many weird stairs. But this is an utterly charming place that has character. In a world full of cookie-cutter hotels of different brand-names that are mostly indistinguishable from each other, this place is great! As a long-time hospitality worker, I appreciate that they take pride in their hotel and are not trying to make into the same hotel experience you can get in one of the brand name places. It gives this place a quirky sense of identity and it's something you really don't see often. Not often enough. While the rooms are small, it's clear they are nice. My $89/night twin bed room barely had enough room for me to move around in and a shared bathroom across the hall..but there was a sink and mirror in the room, a TV, a mini-fridge, a microwave. Even a chandelier! I could live here and be fairly comfortable. They try to compensate for what their property cannot offer by offering great amenities. Free bottled water in the lobby/breakfast area. Fresh baked cookies. A bathrobe to use in each room for when you have to go out into the hall to use the bathroom/shower. On top of that, it's right by the Portland Transportation Center and directly by a bus stop that takes you through downtown Portland. (But then, the city's so small, it's not a long walk.) I will definitely stay there again when I come back to Portland. That said, be forewarned that it doesn't have these things and go in with realistic expectations of what that means and I think you'll really enjoy your stay.

Nice stay in old style hotel

4,6 en octubre 24, 2015

This is an old hotel that had been sub-divided into many rooms. Small room, but quaint and charming as the old folks would say!

Wonderful Classic Inn!

4,4 en octubre 23, 2015

My friend and I shared a room during our girls' weekend in Maine. It was great staying in a place that is different then a chain hotel, quirky, different, and as warm and hospitable as a bed and breakfast. The Inn is very affordable for the area, and the staff are very welcoming and ready to help you with your visit to Maine and any other needs you may have; I highly recommend the Inn at St John!

The only place in Portland I stay at

4,0 en octubre 22, 2015

It's convenient to 295, has a great smoked barbecue joint two blocks away, and the Portland Art Museum is less than a mile walk away. Great location and has some charm to boot. I've stayed in one of the big rooms downstairs and in the smallest room upstairs. It's quiet, clean and has a decent cold breakfast.

Cozy and sweet

Room was very small though the price is very affordable for this type of Inn. The service was wonderful, the breakfast was delicious with a great variety and the decor is wonderful.

Inn at St. John

3,6 en octubre 19, 2015

My husband and I were quite pleased with the Inn at St. John. The cleaning staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Majority of the desk staff was also amazing. I'd say the only thing that could improve would be the breakfast part. The food was not homemade; it was definitely from BJs or Costco. The best part of a bed and breakfast is the homemade food and the Inn at St. John was not homemade. Other than that it was a great two nights!

Staying in Portland; an alternative to the run of the mill hotels

4,0 en octubre 19, 2015

Quaint setting; centrally located; convenient parking; very clean room; private bath down the hall; nice breakfast; good value. Our only suggestion is that the dining area is very small, long and narrow, with one nice table near the window. A less congested dining area would be preferable, giving it less of a hostel atmosphere. We will stay there again, most likely.

Stop Along the Way

3,8 en octubre 19, 2015

This was a quick stop over on our way to Acadia. It was quite with easy parking and all the amenities. Breakfast is a continental breakfast and coffee and water are available 24/7. There are a number of restaurants available locally (though the one they recommended was closed the night we were there). Portland waterfront is a long walk or drive away. This is right by the main highways but no noise - just easy access.

Wonderful vintage stay.

4,6 en octubre 17, 2015

Hotel was a mile+ or so from down town so not really walking distance but plenty of dining close by. Very charming place. Our room was very large and had a king size bed and bath. Very clean and comfortable.

Enjoyed our stay!

4,6 en octubre 15, 2015

Just returned from a very pleasant trip to Portland, Me. and a stay at the Inn at St. John...what a hotel should be! Very comfortable room...extremely quiet considering we were right on the street and just off the lobby! Staff were all very helpful and friendly, a nice addition to the atmosphere! Breakfast items were so-so, but the addition of complementary bottled water, water for coffee and tea and delicious cookies were a plus! Also, there was a great little café right next door! Not in the heart of downtown, but close enough to be convenient! Would certainly return and recommend the Inn at St. John!

Cute, quirky and comfy...

4,6 en octubre 12, 2015

Free cookies! Need I say more? But really, this hotel was a great experience for my husband and I during our anniversary trip. I was beyond pleased and REALLY wished we could have stayed here the extra 2 nights as opposed to the fancy schmancy hotel we had to switch to for the weekend. The Inn is much more comfortable... It is definitely more of a European experience in many regards - no elevator, winding stairs, shared bathrooms - but the size of our room was decidedly American. We never heard street traffic except for the occasional siren but, hey, we were in the city, yes? Place was very clean and provided everything you need for a stay including fridge, coffee/tea maker (the real deal not that Keurig junk), robes, plenty of towels and a bid ol' TV. Plus free breakfast! Staff was mostly friendly. On site parking 4EVAH. This is not a bad neighborhood. I heard people tell of how it's seedy because of the bus station but I don't think so in the slightest. It's not a tourist driven area but it's a solid neighborhood with a wide variety of ethnicities, backgrounds and economic levels. Everyone we met was friendly and courteous! We had Vietnamese, African, BBQ and Indian food during our stay and everything was super tasty. I highly recommend you get out and explore!

Very nice !

3,2 en septiembre 07, 2015

we booked a downstairs room with ensuite and the room was very well equipped and comfortable. marked ok for onsite dining as only option is a small continental breakfast. it was good and adequate plus constant source of coffee, tea, water all day. plenty of parking esp with the extra lot. it is not walking distance to the sites so need either car, taxi or uber. though uber seems to not be strong yet in no of drivers. we sought out uber and told no drivers avail on several occasions. but cost of parking at wharf so reasonable its not an issue. would definitely return

Summer Stay in Portland.

3,6 en septiembre 01, 2015

Ours was a return stay to the Inn at St. John for a few days/nites of baseball, music, a brewery visit, walking and fine eating. The Inn is a reliable value and location for a Portland visit.

Unique, Comfy Digs

3,6 en agosto 30, 2015

This is a funky, old, historic property. We've been staying here for several years running, never in the same room. The pluses: For city lodging, we thought the price was fair. Each room is unique and very comfortable. Staff is cordial. Our room was quiet. Sink in room was a great help since we didn't have a private bathroom. Super-clean. I tried to rate "cleanliness" a 5, but it wouldn't register. Free Wi-Fi. 24 hour beverages and cookies. Minuses: Parking is a bit difficult, as there is only a tiny lot. The Chinese restaurant next door provides overflow parking. Staff isn't particularly warm. They don't look happy to be there. Continental breakfast is only fair, hot and cold beverages, with bagels , muffins, cereal and yogurt, probably from a local grocery or warehouse store. 24 hour beverages aren't kept warm. Stairs are very narrow and steep. We didn't consider this much of a minus, since it's an old building, and we pack light, but they might pose a problem to some people.

Luxurorious, pleasant stay!

Wonderful 4th of July Getaway!

5 en julio 19, 2015

This hotel was marvelous. I was initially worried about the shared bathroom situation on the 3rd floor but it happened to be quite satisfactory. The bathroom was nice and clean and was not constantly occupied like a hostel situation. I had a double room and it was nice and roomy with my own sink so you only really need to shower in the common bathroom. The hotel even provided complimentary robes to use. I only was able to catch the tail end of a breakfast upon checkout but from the looks of it, it would have been quite nice (Bagels, cream cheese, fruit, juice, coffee, tea, I think I saw some muffins too.) The lobby regularly has juices, coffee, and tea as well as cookies which is quite nice and a nice selection of pamphlets and menus for the surrounding area.

Great Hotel

5 en julio 09, 2015

The Inn at St John is good choixe. The place is safe, clean, it has a classy-professional feel and the decor is in good taste. I have stayed with them on and off season, same great experience. You should stay with them if you can, you won't be disappointed.

NIce hotel, great personal service

4,4 en junio 10, 2015

Really enjoyed our weekend in Portland in part because of the great service of the staff at the Inn. One example was our arrival was prior to the normal check-in time so we left our luggage and went out sightseeing. When we returned to the hotel, unasked, the staff had carried our bags up to the room for us, which when added to the fresh coffee and cookies made us feel like we were someone special. Highly recommend this hotel to any traveler visiting the city.

"Lovely historic hotel, best staff ever to boot"

3,8 en junio 10, 2015

I came to Portland the first weekend of June to kick off my "see all the things one the east coast before moving to the west coast" tour. Miles at the front desk was kind enough to let me in on the haps downtown and then let me stash my bike in the cellar (I worry). My room (11C) was cozy and beautifully appointed, the shared bathroom spartan but very clean. Sadly on my last day in Portland, I lost my purse (with everything in it) and didn't know if I would be able to fly home or not. The hotel staff let me use every facility at their disposal (including bus fare to the airport!), printed out numerous things for me and told me I was more than welcome to come back and regroup if needed. When I come back to Portland, I will not stay anywhere else. This place is tops. They've got me for life.

Wonderful Portland Experience

3,6 en junio 10, 2015

The ISJ was the two night end to our week in Portland. It was by far our favorite two nights, just because ISJ is close to Old Port and it's beautiful inside. It was our first time staying in a B&B and most definitely will not be our last at ISJ.

Quick Stay

Very nice B&B

A good value B&B in Portland with welcoming rooms, clean bathrooms and a very nice Victorian atmosphere. Breakfast also met our expectations with quite a selection of food. Would definitely stay here again!

3,6 en mayo 30, 2015

Very nice and clean. Loved the rooms! Disappointed in breakfast and not in the best neighborhood.

What a bargain

4,6 en mayo 29, 2015

This is not a "cookie cutter" hotel, it's a unique old building with nooks and unusual furnishings. The staff were helpful and gracious. The flowers and fountains were cheerful. I slept well, the shower was hot and strong, and it was so quiet - even with Maine Medical Center across the street. It's just north of the Western Prom, where the lilacs were in bloom, scenting the neighborhood. Free parking! The continental breakfast was ok for the super inexpensive rate, and there was o.j., yogurt and fruit along with the store-bought muffins, bagels and pastries. This is the best bargain in Portland.

Pleasant stay at the Inn at St. John

A great value for a special place. The breakfast was great, the service was great, and the rooms, fantastic! Not as close as some of the other hotels to the port, but still walkable and within a short drive. Thank you, St. Johns!

Short Stay at St John

4,2 en mayo 28, 2015

Stayed one night at St John and had a great time in the fantastic city of Portland. Staff were very helpful and friendly, and the Inn was a great location and allowed us to leave the car and walk into town for dinner and drinks.

Great, affordable Portland B&B! Celiac friendly Breakfast!

5 en mayo 27, 2015

Amazing service and super clean B&B! This was my third stay at the Inn over the past 2 years. It is the only place I stay in Portland. The rates are much more affordable than the big chain hotels, but you get the same professional service you'd expect from a larger operation. The continental breakfast is also the best I've ever experienced. As someone with Celiac disease, it was a dream. They had many gluten free options available, and were not stingy with the servings. I would recommend the Inn at St. John over and over again to anyone!

Service was swell, first room I stayed in had a microwave but the second which was larger did not. The cord to the coffee maker didn't reach the plug. Decor could have been improved, there were many different styles that did not match, showers were small and hard to gauge a correct temperature.

Fancy, Cozy, Wonderful!

5 en mayo 16, 2015

Everything about our stay here was a delight: the robes and slippers, the ample cookies and milk, the array of toiletries in the bathroom, the enormous bed! Come here to get pampered, for half the cost of waterfront hotels!

Excellent low-cost bedrest (but don't expect full breakfast)!

3,8 en mayo 15, 2015

The Inn is a perfect place to stay in Portland, if your plan is to visit and enjoy the local sites and food. Located close to the edge of the city, it's still only a 5-or-so minute car ride from there to the Old Port district (where you can shop and eat to your heart/stomach's content), and the local Double A baseball team's stadium is a two-minute walk away, so you can enjoy a very fun and inexpensive pro baseball experience, to boot! The room we stayed in was quite nice -- king bed was very comfortable, and the space roomy with old-fashioned, sturdy décor and furniture. Bathroom was on the small side, but very clean and well-maintained. Overall, the cleanliness was above-average for a B&B. The inn does not have a restaurant to speak of--only a small dining area where standard continental breakfast fare will await you in the morning (muffins, croissants, cereal, bread, milk, yogurt, juice, etc.), so perhaps not what most expect when staying at a place that advertises as a B&B locale (i.e., no full breakfasts here). But given how many wonderful dining opportunities there are in the Old Port area (not to mention a fantastic BBQ place -- Salvage BBQ -- only seconds away from the Inn), that should not be a deal-breaker for most persons visiting Portland for pleasure. Overall, an excellent low-cost option for bedrest while travelling or staying around for a few days, and one we'll doubtless use again on our next visit.

We've stayed at St. John's several times and love the consistency of the rooms and service, which is a notch above the rest at this price point.

So much better than the chain hotels

Just stayed for one night in a top floor room with shared bath. This is a fantastic place to stay at, great value, clean and comfortable rooms, equipped with all you need. Don't let shared bath put you off, the hotel was full when we stayed and we didn't see anyone except at breakfast. Free breakfast was great, lots offered, bagels, muffins, fruit, cereal, juice, coffee etc. We will recommend and stay again if in the area, great job!

great for a couple

Quaint and clean, convenient to many places. The walkable aspect of Portland is much appreciated.

Wonderful stay!

My girlfriend and I traveled up for a mid-week trip to Portland, and couldn't have been happier with the Inn at St. John. It has a great location at a great price- we were able to drive into town on some days, and then either walk or cab it during the nights. Also, and this this is a very big plus, the Inn is very close to the Portland Sea Dogs' home stadium, which is a great place to catch a game and have a brew! Lastly, we had to leave one night early due to a family emergency, and the Inn staff were incredibly helpful and understanding. The rooms are beautiful, the staff are incredibly friendly, and the location is great. We will definitely stay here again when we next visit Portland!

Wonderful experience

5 en mayo 04, 2015

My partner and I visited Portland for the first time and stayed at The Inn at St John and it was an amazing experience. Everyone who worked there was super pleasant and helpful, the room was wonderful and if we visit Portland again we will definitely stay here again.

good location, great price

3,8 en mayo 03, 2015

Location was good, the walk up Congress takes you by cute Latino grocery, great BBQ place, awesome cafe/baked goods. Rooms were nice, economical with space, but well designed. The cookies in the lobby were a nice touch!

Quaint with Character

4,2 en mayo 02, 2015

I was very pleasantly surprised by the service and the rooms. An incredible value for sure. The breakfast was adequate, but nothing out of the ordinary.

European style B & B

4,0 en mayo 01, 2015

This recently remodeled historic hotel was quite charming. The staff was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was great -- Just need a little more room for the breakfast area. Great restaurants and the State Theater within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.

Great value

4,2 en abril 29, 2015

If you're looking for a nice place with great atmosphere and comfort, this is the place. We did the European style room with a detached bathroom, which was kind of a pain since I had a sprained ankle, but it was super cute regardless. We would definitely stay here again!

Quaint New England Inn

4,8 en abril 29, 2015

I quite enjoyed my stay at The Inn at St. John's. My room (king bed with private bath) was clean, cheerful surprisingly quiet despite the fact that it faced the street. The room was spotless and spacious, and the bed was extremely comfortable. I crawled in and immediately fell asleep. The breakfast fare was delicious, fresh and ample, with a tasty if limited selection. It's continental, providing everything from bagels and toast, cereals, fruit, yogurt, juice, croissants, coffee, tea, etc. They also have cookies in the lobby during the day that look like they're freshly-baked, in case you get the munchies. I didn't get a chance to try them, but they sure looked good. Note: The building dates to the 1890's and it doesn't have an elevator. The steps are rather steep, so I wouldn't recommend them if you have trouble walking stairs. One of the best things about staying here is the staff. They obviously care about their customers, and they went out of their way to help me with the travel nightmare I had getting to Portland. If I come back to the city (and I hope I do), I'll definitely stay here again.

great place to stay

3,8 en abril 24, 2015

cosy rooms. accurately described - there are stairs to top floor, and the hospitable staff is hapily ready to assist. very clean. worth every penny.

Comfortable and affordable stay!

4,6 en abril 23, 2015

We love the Inn at St.John and frequently choose to stay there when visiting Portland. It's only a short walk to the restaurants and nightlife and the rates are incredibly reasonable.

Great place to stay for the weekend!

4,2 en abril 22, 2015

The Inn was excellent. The front desk attendants were very courteous and friendly, as was the housekeeping staff. A better continental breakfast than most, and the rooms were spacious and clean. A lot of the little things help to make the Inn a great value. Easy to access from the highway, just be aware that you may have a longer walk to the harbor and downtown areas. I'd definitely stay here again.

great stay in Portland, Maine

4,6 en abril 22, 2015

The staff was wonderful and there were free cookies and bottles of water for guests. The rooms were small but still great. Spent most of our time outside in the city anyway!

the extra mile!

5 en abril 21, 2015

The staff members at the Inn at St. John's went the extra mile to make sure my recent stays were comfortable. I will be back!

The break we needed

3,6 en abril 20, 2015

My wife and I had a wonderful, and much needed, stay here. The jetted tub of the first floor room relaxed us in to a great stay in Portland and welcomed us back after a day of walking the city. Staff was always friendly and helpful. Breakfast was standard with good coffee. A great, affordable stay that we would recommend to friends.

Absolutely wonderful!

4,8 en abril 20, 2015

From beginning to end, the experience was excellent with levels of service that compared well with any fine hotel. It is operated exactly as it should be. Plus, my dog had a wonderful visit too with some decent walking parks nearby. Will be back

Exceptional Stay!

3,8 en abril 15, 2015

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Inn at St John for one night but we wished we had booked more nights to stay there during our time in Portland! The room was charming and the service was spectacular. The next time we come to Portland we will certainly stay at the Inn at St John.

very happy

4,6 en abril 15, 2015

Great Hotel!

Fantastic Victorian Inn with prices and service that can't be beat!

5 en abril 13, 2015

This is a fantastic Victorian Inn with prices and service that can't be beat! With great service, clean and spacious room, it's a value that cannot be beat.

Just want we were looking for...

3,6 en abril 12, 2015

We went to Portland for a long weekend and found this place on a whim. It was in the middle of everything with just a five minute drive to the waterfront and high way. The staff was incredibly friendly and the rooms were immaculate. The breakfast was just a simple spread of bagels, cereal, yogurt and fruit but there are plenty of local places within a short ride to try. Definitely staying there again!

One of the Best Nights in Portland

5 en abril 11, 2015

I shouldn't be surprised because the reviews on this place were already stellar but the staff were truly some of the nicest people I've met in a while. They went completely out of their way for us, the room was immaculate and had so many personal touches to it. It really felt like home for the night and gave me and my partner a fantastic birthday trip up to Portland. Thank you guys so much for making us feel so welcome!

Great place to stay when in Portland

4,6 en abril 11, 2015

I love this inn because it's close to the highway yet extremely quiet, provides breakfast foods (even some gluten-free items) and has friendly helpful staff. It's Victorian decor is lovely.

Nice Little Place

4,6 en abril 08, 2015

I stayed here on a whim during a weekend trip to Portland. It was a bit further from the places I was visiting, but easy to walk from and it was nice to have a place to park my car while I explored. My room and bathroom were very tidy and comfortable - I stayed in a room where the bathroom was separate from the actual room. I didn't mind it at all because it was just down the hall two doors. I will definitely stay here again.

An excellent visit as always

5 en abril 07, 2015

I've been staying at the Inn of St John whenever I need to leave from Portland early in the morning, and it's always a pleasure. This time around, I'd made a reservation, my plans changed, and the staff were great about first refunding (making sure I knew their policies at ever step) and then rebooking once I rescheduled the trip. The room was comfortable and interesting, and everything just worked smoothly.

Wish I had known about this place sooner

4,6 en abril 06, 2015

The staff was so nice and helpful. The room was very cute and comfortable; and the private bath across the hall was no issue -- especially because there was a sink in the room to wash your face and brush your teeth. I was traveling alone and I felt much safer there than I did when I stayed at a hotel at a comparable low price in Portland. The cookies and tea in the lobby were great for bedtime and the continental breakfast was fresh and convenient.

Love this Hotel

5 en abril 06, 2015

Very comfortable room and super clean with old world charm. The staff Is wonderful and very helpful. There is no dining here even though I put outstanding. The web site makes you put something in. But there is a nice continental breakfast there. I can't think of anywhere else I would rather stay.

nice stay

3,6 en abril 02, 2015

The inn at St John was a very neat old building. I liked the tiny staircase and funny hallways. All the odd nooks and crannies helped us realize just how many changes the old inn had lived through.

Its all in the details

4,6 en marzo 31, 2015

Not even the city having a major gas line leak that required digging up the road directly in front of the Inn (which took 24 hour around the clock work with heavy machinery) will deplete our thoughts on our stay. The rooms, and the Inn, was exceptionally clean- and despite the age and level of activity the building was Iin very good repair. It is obvious that there has been a lot of thought and care put into every detail, big and small. It's this attention and care that made our stay relaxing, comfortable and worth repeating many more times.

Old-fashioned charm

Great First BandB Experience

3,8 en marzo 27, 2015

I felt for what we paid this was a nice experience, I wish the hotel was closer to downtown Portland, but the quiet atmosphere definitely made for a nice getaway and the staff was amazing and always ready to help!

Very pleasantly surprised.

4,8 en marzo 22, 2015

I am actually local to the area, but was looking for a place to stay just for one night. Where it was just for a night, and I didn't live too far away, I didn't want to spend a large amount of money. The rooms here were very affordable. We(my wife and I)were very pleasantly surprised with the appearance and overall quality of not just our room but the hotel in general. We actually raved about it online while we were staying there! The only thing I can not speak for is the food. We didn't eat there. But there was a fridge in lobby with plenty of water and snacks available free of charge! I would highly recommend staying here, especially if you need an inexpensive alternative to the "big name" hotels. And if they are available...spring for a room with a jetted tub! You'll love it!-Brian

Nicest check-in ever!

4,0 en marzo 22, 2015

Staff here is wonderful. Onsite dining is okay. We like a full breakfast, not Continental, so we went elsewhere. Our room was small, but cozy and very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

Night in Portland Maine

3,8 en marzo 22, 2015

The cost of the room was very reasonable. I liked the vintage style of the hotel. The staff at the front desk were friendly and very helpful. The hotel was very close to highway and downtown Portland, so very convenient. I would definitely return and recommend this hotel to friends!

Our Favorite Place in Portland!

4,4 en marzo 20, 2015

My boyfriend and I consistently choose the Inn at St. John when we go to Portland now. It is so homey - it feels like a tiny B&B and you hardly know there are any other guests, even when you stay on a night the hotel is full. They provide slippers and robes, and complimentary beverages and small snacks 24/7. The front desk is incredibly helpful and we have always found it to be very clean. Will definitely be back soon! The only reason I gave it 4 stars for service was because I asked them if I had left something behind and had to call more than once to get someone to find it and I am still waiting for it to be mailed back to me!


5 en marzo 19, 2015

Beautiful, quaint, and serene. Wonderful management and staff: very friendly and helpful. Good continental breakfast, and wonderful to come downstairs to a quiet setting (no television blasting). Lovely inn.

St. John inn

5 en marzo 18, 2015

We arrived at 2am from the boston airport. Someone was at the desk and let us in right away. Our room was ready for us, warm, clean and cozy. The inn at St. John is elegant, has all the details of a 5 star hotel. We love this inn and recommend it to anyone needing a room in Portland.

Gem in the city!

4,6 en marzo 17, 2015

This is the second time we have stayed here. We will be back. It is perfect for the price!

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn at St. John. The décor was lovely, not standard fare ... we had everything we needed and could want here. Will definitely be back!

Great place to stay in Portland

4,6 en marzo 14, 2015

This place gets in right. Really nice rooms, great service for a very reasonable price. Located a little outside the downtown area but its an easy drive and there is plenty of parking. Also a great BBQ place about a block away. The breakfast at St John is OK but with all the great food in Portland the bagels and muffins could be better quality.

Above and Beyond Satisfactory

4,6 en marzo 12, 2015

Portland Maine has always been a special place for me. The Inn at St. John's made it even more of an experience. It is a beautiful and authentic building with quaint accommodations and friendly staff. As a business professional, family man and pet owner I was thrilled to bring my dog Oktober with me last weekend for a long weekend getaway. Thank you St. John's for the lovely welcome you will be sure to find us staying with you on a regular stay basis!

Surprised at the quality!

4,8 en marzo 11, 2015

For only $69, we got a beautiful room and incredibly friendly service. Very pleased with our stay!


4,6 en marzo 07, 2015

Great place

Fine Value

4,2 en marzo 06, 2015

We (a rarity these days) were on the third floor. We didn't mind the walk up, but some might. The room was more spacious than we expected. The bathroom was a bit tight, but certainly adequate. We could not control the radiator, but we could open the window (a rarity these days), and that counteracted the heat surge. Staff were professional and friendly. Given the proximity to downtown, the interstate, and eating choices, our stay was a fine vlaue.

Once again, a great stay..

5 en marzo 05, 2015

We love the consistency of the quality. We have stayed many times and the rooms are predictably cozy and spotless, the desk management warm and friendly, the food great, and all at a very reasonable price. Its far more attractive to us than any chain hotel

What a find!

4,2 en marzo 04, 2015

We didn't know what to expect but were overjoyed with the value we got for the money spent! The staff was accommodating and courteous, the room was above and beyond clean and all the little details provided from slippers, robes and all the toiletries you would need, we couldn't have asked for more! The continental breakfast was kept fully stocked and was kept clean with efficiency! Thank you for providing me the opportunity to give my opinion.

I want the room so stay somewhere else.

4,4 en marzo 04, 2015

Always a pleasure, old school but then again I'm not one to sleep in a box.

Fantastic place!

4,8 en marzo 04, 2015

Marvelous rooms, the cleaning staff was stupendous and the amenities were just great. Nice breakfast options, although not much in the way of protein. Very delicious though, and the almond milk was a great touch.

great stay!

4,6 en marzo 02, 2015

A very nicely maintained inn with period décor, very clean rooms and friendly staff. There is no elevator so if you can't do stairs, make sure to book a room on the first floor. Very affordable. Would definitely stay there again.

Lovely stay, price was very reasonable!

4,6 en marzo 02, 2015

I very much enjoyed my one-night stay at the Inn at St John. It was reasonably priced, comfortable, welcoming, and quiet. I had planned to go out for breakfast but found a nice selection of breakfast foods available early. I missed out on the free cookies (they were all gone when I got there) but I loved the idea of them. Thank you for a very restful stay.

Great place to stay while in Portland

4,6 en febrero 27, 2015

We recently stayed at The Inn at St John. We booked the delux room.and found it to be all we had anticipated and more. It was roomy with old world charm. The brick wall and Victorian furniture gave it more charm and character then what you find in newer hotels. It also had two comfortable chairs and a table. The king size bed was very comfortable and the comfy white robe and slippers were an added bonus! The clerk/manager at the desk was very friendly and accommodating . There were complimentary coolkies, coffee, and bottled water available which was a nice touch! The continental breakfast was more then adequate. The only thing I would change is that the top sheet on the bed was worn. I wouldn't have expected that with everything else so high quality. Overall our stay was excellent and we would definitely stay here again when in Portland.

Weekend in Portland

4,0 en febrero 24, 2015

My daughter and I stayed here, to look at apartments for her, in the area. It was conveniently located and a good value. It was very comfortable and homey as well as an easy place to relax and unwind but still close enough to jump a taxi downtown! The staff was courteous and exceptionally accomodating. I would stay here again!

A quirky inn for a tight budget

4,0 en febrero 22, 2015

We really enjoyed our stay at the Inn at St John. The rooms were eclectically decorated, and the bed was very comfy. It was small, but very cosy. Our washroom was across the hall, and was perfectly secure, clean, and we didn't mind it one bit! The air conditioning unit was not sealed properly and let the cold air in, but with the extra space heater, we were able to keep warm. The first night the pipes clanged so loudly we were awoke n at 6am, and didn't get back to sleep. The front desk keeper said it was an old building. We understand, but it sounded as though someone was repeatedly hitting the pipes in our room with a wrench. The breakfast was great, and very adequate! The inn was a short cab ride from Portland's main attractions. In the summertime, it would be a nice walk.


4,6 en febrero 22, 2015

Very nice breakfast buffet. Many, many choices.

A wonderful Christmas visit at In at St John

4,8 en febrero 22, 2015

We spent 4 nights at the Inn at Christmas and we loved it. We will return in warmer weather. The service was excellent. Giving us help when needed and also giving us privacy and quiet which we wanted. The front desk, I hope I am remembering his name correctly, Jeremy, was just a perfect blend of enthusiasm, friendliness and professionalism. Thank you

Wonderful! Cannot wait to return!

4,6 en febrero 20, 2015

Loved this Inn. I accidentally booked our first night in a room without windows and even that room was beautiful. The next couple nights we stayed on the third floor and the service was amazing, they brought all of our baggage up while we were out and it was simply phenomenal service. We will definitely be staying there again. The price was far below average and the service was unparalleled. Thanks!!

Another nice trip!

5 en febrero 19, 2015

This was our second time staying at the Inn at St. John, and once again it was just what we were looking for. We stayed the weekend of February 14th, 2015 in 6C the first night and 9B the second night. 6C had a small refrigerator and freezer and an ensuite bathroom. 9B had a small fridge and a microwave, and a private hall bathroom, about 10 feet down the hall. 9B was a little cold, unsurprising with the blizzard and high winds, but there was a space heater provided (make sure you use the outlet that the window unit uses!). All in all, it was a very nice stay and we'll be back next time!

The only place I stay in Portland

4,2 en febrero 19, 2015

The staff was extremely nice, helpful and accommodating as usual. The room was huge and clean as was the bathroom. The location is great and the prices are affordable. I mean there is really no reason to stay anywhere else in Portland.

Cozy and Clean!

5 en febrero 17, 2015

The staff was welcoming and very friendly when my fiancé and I arrived. The front desk attendant even gave me some coupons for local cabs and told me which can companies were the most reliable to use (my fiancé and I were going to a show that night). The room was very clean and I loved taking a bath in the bathtub with the jets! We slept through breakfast unfortunately but we did snack on their cookies which were good. Check out was super fast and easy and the staff was very friendly. For the price I paid to be in downtown Portland, I will definitely stay here again and will absolutely recommend this diamond in the rough to anyone who will listen!

A Gem in Portland.

3,4 en febrero 17, 2015

My parents had stayed here before, and I will always go for a cozy place when I have the chance. The Inn is just that, with a kind late night welcome, arriving just before a blizzard, a great breakfast in the morning, and one (or maybe more?) fresh-baked cookie(s) out to eat every time I needed to make a run to the car. The room was plenty warm in the cold New England air, and the staff always had a smile and a kind word. I spend most of my time in Europe, so a bathroom down the hall is no trouble, and it was perfectly outfitted. The only thing that threw me for a bit of a loop was the coffee out in the lobby. My mother had had some the day before, and had thrown her stomach into a bit of a loop. I didn't catch the hint and had a cup the following morning...definitely threw a wrench into my day. Maybe just a case of a refill or two without a clean. Everything else in the Inn was well up to par and I never had a second thought about hygiene whilst there.

My only reluctance...

4,8 en febrero 15, 2015

My only reluctance to give the St. John Inn the glowing review it deserves is to keep it a secret for my use and enjoyment, and for those who have discovered it. The rooms are clean and well-appointed, the people are super nice, breakfast and all day coffee & cookies, free parking, easy to find and all at an exceptional price. Visit, but just don't spread it around, okay :)

Very comfortable!

4,6 en febrero 11, 2015

When/if I ever need to stay in Portland for a few days again, I will definitely call the Inn!

Excellent Property that is Reasonably Priced!

3,6 en febrero 10, 2015

This is our second stay at the Inn at St John. It is in a great location right off of the highway. The staff are excellent and very helpful. On this past stay I needed my winder jacket washed as it got soiled at an event the first night I was there and they washed it and had it ready for me to go out the second night. The continental breakfast is really good and they have coffee and water available all the time. The rooms are clean and for the price this place is a great value. We will be back the next time we are in Portland!

amazing hotel

5 en febrero 08, 2015

Everything was top notch!

Stay Here

4,8 en febrero 05, 2015

This hotel was built in 1887, so don't expect an elevator. What you can expect is great service, clean rooms, a homey and friendly atmosphere, and ambiance. There are plenty of good restaurants close by and it is only about three miles from Commercial Street along the wharf. My wife and I loved our stay and we plan to come to Portland again and when we do it will be at this hotel.

Good B&B

3,6 en enero 31, 2015

This was a nice enough B&B a mile outside of center city Portland. The rooms were clean and the service was good. The continental breakfast had only bagels and juice which left much to be desired.

great place to stay!

Staff is wonderful and willing to go out of their way and above and beyond to help you and make your stay great!

Another Great Visit at the Inn

I stayed here for 2 nights and couldn't believe it was only $55/night! What a steal! It was conveniently located and walking distance to everything I was interested in exploring in Portland. It was very cozy, clean and comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone visiting Portland.

Perfect, in city style INN. Great access to Portland with right on site parking. Thank you

4,6 en enero 26, 2015

WE did not dine so, we need not enter a dining score.

Pleasant surprise

4,6 en enero 24, 2015

This is an inn that went through a rough period in the 80s & 90s. They have turned it around & turned it into a place I'd send my Grandmother(if she were alive & not 110). Clean, service oriented. Quirky layout.

A quaint, clean, and friendly inn!

4,2 en enero 23, 2015

This was our first time staying the Inn at St John, and we would definitely like to come back! The rooms were clean, inviting, and staff friendly. We loved that we could take our dog and he also enjoyed his stay. The continental breakfast was wonderful - water, cookies, and tea all day too! Parking lot was accessible, and pleasant walk to downtown. You have to be athletic to get up the steep staircases, and the temperature fluctuated a bit in the room and shower, but we prefer the charm of an interesting older building, and this did not overly concern us. Value was excellent!

Great winter getaway.

4,6 en enero 22, 2015

Great stay in Portland. 10-15 minute walk to Old Port and the main restaurant scene, but the price makes it worth the extra walk!

The Inn at St John

We've stayed at the Inn multiple times and have never been disappointed. The staff is friendly and the rooms are comfortable and clean. There are some informal dining options within walking distance, which is really a plus

Hidden Gem

Great value, very clean, and nicely decorated hotel. The hotel lacks an elevator, but makes up for it in all other service areas and value. Already looking forward to staying here in the future.

Great place to stay.

I recently stay here on my birthday and had a blast. We ended up getting an upgraded room and it was just beautiful. I will stay again when I travel to Portland.

Good location; snow wasn't much of a problem. Friendly people.

A Victorian Gem!

4,6 en enero 14, 2015

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here in what is considered the quiet season (January). I could not believe how incredibly gorgeous the Inn was! It has the charm of colonial New England that was genuine and not at all campy. The locale was fantastic too! We were about 2 miles from Shipyard Brewing, and only a mile or so from the beautiful harbor side. The price was fantastic as well! I thought I had found a "deal" on our night's stay, but that was just the actual price. The concierge was gracious enough to lend us a corkscrew as well, what a gentleman. We did not get to try the continental breakfast as we had a plane to catch, but the spread looked fantastic. I was very pleased with my stay at The Inn at St. John, and will definitely be booking it for another weekend soon!

Pleasantly surprised

4,0 en enero 14, 2015

Recently stayed at St Johns Inn and to my surprise it was lovely. I booked a king room with insuite bathroom and both were very clean. Room was quite large with lots of space which was nice and not expected because it was an inn. Only complaint about the bathroom was the water pressure but when we were able to get the water to stay hot it was fine and did the job. Everybody who we saw that worked there was very friendly which was welcoming . They did have free water, coffee and cookies all day as well as some breakfast pastries and such in the morning but I wasn't awake early enough for that.

Great place with lots of character

4,0 en enero 07, 2015

We stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor with a private bath across the hall. This was my second stay here and would certainly stay here again. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The Inn has a lot of charm and is great for a romantic getaway at a very reasonable rate. We walked to and from the Old Port and it was no problem, would be a very short cab ride, its less than 2 miles, and there are several interesting options right around the Inn as well. Highly recommended.

Diamond in the rough

4,6 en enero 06, 2015

I had heard nothing about this place until we found out some friends were staying there to go to a concert. We decided to book our stay at the same place, and we were floored. Nestled in Portland, and very unassuming, this place was cute beyond belief once we got inside. The rooms are amazing, and the prices are great for what is offered. Some rooms offer shared bathrooms for a lower cost, but we "splurged" and got a room with its own bathroom. Overall our stay was great and we would definitely come back.

Best place to stay in Portland

3,8 en enero 04, 2015

We stay here at least once every year because of the value and quality The Inn at St. John offers. The layout and feel of the inn is like an European inn, not like the standard, sterile atmosphere of a chain hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms are nicely appointed, clean, and unique. There is definitely an advantage to knowing the layout of the rooms and where they are located in the building. If you don't want to be disturbed by street traffic then you should avoid rooms like 5A, 6A, 7A, etc. Overall, I'd say this is the best overnight deal in Portland!

A nice surprise

All around great experience, will be returning.

economical and unique

3,6 en diciembre 28, 2014

We like this Inn and have stayed here often. Nothing fancy, but all that one needs for a few nights away. All of the rooms are different and unique, the breakfast is adequate although we usually take advantage of the many choices of breakfast restaurants in Portland. We would recommend the following improvements but would still stay without them as the price is right: a quieter heater/ac unit and comfier pillows.

Awesome Value

Room was clean, Staff was very friendly! You cant beat the price. I will be able to stay in Portland 2 nights in a row now for that price!

Can't wait to go back

Stayed there over Christmas. Really wonderful people. Great room (with large bath). Parking right behind the building. Only downside was no elevator and long stairway a problem only because I overpack. Continental breakfast.

We stayed at your inn twice in the past few weeks, as I was flying across country and needed to stay overnight both coming and going (we live on an island and the ferry service isn't early enough or late enough to accommodate). We always love to stay at your inn - it is so beautiful, especially at Christmas. Warm and cozy and comfortable. Wonderful breakfasts and food available. Beautiful rooms, uniquely decorated. We were just saying that in the winter we should try to stay once a month, just as a treat to ourselves. Thank you all - and Merry Christmas! Nancy and Michael Long Island, Maine

Great place to stay

Close to everything. I have stayed here for the past five years and the hotel gets better every year. Very friendly staff. Continental breakfast is very good and filling.

A welcome surprise

3,8 en diciembre 12, 2014

I stayed here overnight because I missed a bus up the Maine coast. It was such a pleasure that I look forward to "missing" more transport next time I fly back from overseas... Far better value than cookie-cutter hotel rooms in the city that charged higher prices. Excellent location near downtown but also close to both bus stations. Admittedly, room rate was perhaps lower due to late November? Anyway, good job guys.

Great stay, clean rooms, awesome area

5 en diciembre 10, 2014

I stayed in one of the economy rooms, and my bathroom was down the hall. I was so scared that I was going to be staying in some dingy old place, by when I got there I was very impressed by how clean the rooms were! The furniture was older, but it just created a cozy atmosphere. The area is very walkable, with downtown portland being only a 10 minute walk, and about two blocks down there is a great little Thai place. I would rate this experience 5/5 and would recommend The Inn at St. John's to anyone looking for the a Portland, ME experience.

My wife and I are fans of small inns and B&Bs and were very pleasantly surprised when we learned about he Inn at St. John. Our room was quite comfortable and the bathroom was much larger than we had anticipated. The service was far better than we have experienced at many larger big box hotels. We will be returning to Portland later this month and look forward to staying at the Inn.

All the raving reviews are true

4,6 en diciembre 05, 2014

I loved my room, spacious, comfy bed, even robes. Loved the thoughtful freebies - bottled water, cookies, yogurt and an above average continental breakfast. Amazing price for this charming inn. The location seems a little sketch but was perfect for my early flight out.

Cozy, comfortable and affordable stay

4,4 en diciembre 05, 2014

Very cozy, affordable and comfortable stay. The location is splendid as well with on site parking. We did not have to take the car as all old port locations were 1.5 miles from the Inn and very walkable (unless in a hurry). The staff was very nice an helpful. They have 24/7 water, coffee, tea and limited snacks in the lobby. I would stay here again and again.

Inn at St John, Portland, ME

4,6 en diciembre 02, 2014

This is a conveniently located inn in Portland, with super-clean rooms and baths, comfortable beds, great linens and towels, and a wonderful, friendly staff. I've stayed three times and will continue to do so on my Portland trips.

Room size

3,8 en diciembre 01, 2014

Our room was clean and had everything we needed, except the bathroom was in the hallway. The problem was it was so small you couldn't move or put anything down or you tripped over it. It was by far the smallest room I have ever stayed in. The other rooms might be bigger. Stay away from room 4.

Charming Inn, Great Price

4,6 en diciembre 01, 2014

The Inn at St. John is my lodging of choice when I visit Portland. The inn has wonderful character -- the lobby is lovely, and and the rooms are comfortable nicely decorated (each one is different). The rooms are small, but that is not a problem for me when I am staying just a night or two. The inn is comfortable and clean, and the staff is friendly. The price is right, and the parking is free. Please note: The survey requires me to enter a rating for dining, but the Inn at St. John does not serve meals (there is a complimentary continental breakfast, but I've never tried it because I perfer to go out for breakfast). Thus, my five-star rating applies to Portland dining -- there are many wonderful options.

Great stay at the inn

4,6 en diciembre 01, 2014

We were very pleased with our stay at the Inn at St John. The room was very comfortable and clean. We plan on returning in Dec.

Cozy comfort in Portland, Maine

4,6 en noviembre 25, 2014

Affordable with Victorian ambiance. I love staying here. Downside is going across hall to use your bathroom and you do have to schlep your suitcase up the stairs as there is no elevator, but I find this a small tradeoff for the comfort and quiet of staying here. I would recommend they stop providing soap/shampoo etc from their current vendor. It's of poor quality (soap doesn't rinse off easily, lotion makes me sneeze). Regardless, this is my first choice when coming to Portland.

I will stay again !

An Unexpected Jewel

4,6 en noviembre 20, 2014

I recently took a weekend trip to Portland Maine and stayed at the St. John Inn. The people at the Inn were very friendly and helpful to point me toward the "local" restaurants. It was a unique experience as it is in a 19th Century building with very narrow staircases and old fashioned decor. It made me wonder how people moved so fluidly around such an establishment back in the day. It is located on the main street that takes you to old Port and it is a pleasant walk to town. I would highly recommend it.


4,0 en noviembre 19, 2014

I needed a relatively inexpensive place to stay for a few days while settling my daughter in to her new home in Portland. The Inn exceeded my expectations in many ways (breakfast was good and plentiful, beverages and snacks available 24 hours, room was very nice.). The bathroom was a bit of a mish-mosh--very dated and a very small stall shower, but clean and just fine. The hallways smelled a bit like cigarette smoke, but the room did not. My main recommendation is to be sure to get a room in the middle of the building. Our room overlooked the main street, which was quite loud. Also, be aware that getting to the third floor entails climbing 35 or so rather steep steps. I would definitely revisit the Inn at St John, with the caveat that I would insist upon an interior room for the relative quiet. It was inexpensive and quite comfortable, all in all.

A great find!

4,4 en noviembre 19, 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend (11/15/14) and couldn't have been more pleased! Everyone was incredibly sweet and the room was spacious and comfortable. The only issue is that it's about a 25-30 minute walk to old port, but even that was a beautiful and enjoyable walk. Would definitely stay again.

Great place to get away but be close enough to the Old Port

3,0 en noviembre 18, 2014

Staff was very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were very nice and quaint. The traffic was a little loud where are room was located, but for the trip we were on the room was perfect. All the conveniences were supplied. I think that the only thing they could develop is the parking. We had to use the overflow parking at the next business which was convenient but I think that it would be beneficial to try to expand a little or be able to connect directly to their parking lot. Overall a very good experience and we are planning to have another little overnight getaway soon!

Cute little inn!

A Perfect Stay

4,8 en noviembre 09, 2014

First time staying at the Inn last week for a romantic getaway to Portland. Usually stay at the Holiday Inn but won't ever again. St. John exceeded all of our expectations. Loved our stay in Room 108. The off season pricing is fantastic and the staff was so kind. It is a bit of a walk (15-20 min) to the downtown area but we loved that. Introduced us to areas of the city we hadn't spent much time in before and it was fun to escape downtown at night too. We will definitely be staying here for all future visits to Portland!

Very affordable charm and history

4,2 en noviembre 09, 2014

We stayed there several years ago because they literally had the only available room in Portland. Laat month we wanted a B & B in Portland and decided to try them again. It was even more charming than I remembered. We had a room on the top floor. The walk up is easily enough, plus you get to see the actual layout of the place. It is such an interesting building. Service and staff is great. Will definitely go back.

Value & Location

4,6 en noviembre 06, 2014

While some readers may be urban sophisticates, I am just a simple country chemist. I get nervous in large cities and ritzy accommodations. That is why Portland is my favorite city, and the inn at St John is my favorite place to stay. The inn has old New England (Victorian is it?) charm and a mellow, welcoming feel. You will be greeted warmly and your room will be clean. A 20-minute walk will take you into the Old Port or most anywhere else you might want to go. If you're too lazy to walk, a cheap cab ride will get you there and support the local economy that much more. Speaking of cheap, for the location and amenities, this inn delivers value in spades. It's a great place to stay.

My husband and I wanted a pleasant inexpensive hotel room convenient to I295 in a place with some charm- to take our minds off 15 hours of highway between northern Maine and Maryland. We had a double bed with en suite private bath and were pleased with our room. We left before continental breakfast opened at 6 am but grabbed coffee on our way out. Overall a great value for our overnight.

My BF and I stayed for one night in a room with a private bathroom included. The room was smaller than expected, but clean. There are some scattered restaurants, etc., in the area, but we like to walk, so walking into the more vibrant Old Port for dinner was no problem. Service was courteous.

Great B & B

4,6 en octubre 26, 2014

Great location, parking onsite, and room set up and cleanliness were outstanding. Snacks, coffee/tea/hot cocoa 24/7. Only concern- the 3 flights of narrow stairs we had to walk up with luggage. Management of course offered to carry our bags. They also look to have rooms on the first floor for people unable to take the stairs with ease. Would stay again if in Portland in the future.

Amazing, warm experience...

4,6 en octubre 24, 2014

What a quaint hotel, so much character. The staff was extremely helpful and attentive and our rooms were great. The only downside was that their was not much room to accommodate guests at breakfast, nowhere to sit. We definitely would stay there again!

my home away from home

4,2 en octubre 23, 2014

I've been staying at the Inn at St John for several years and I've found it to be the best combination of location/price in Portland. This is the oldest hotel in Portland and in many ways is a step back in time. The rooms are very clean, well furnished and comfortable. The hotel is "intown" but not "downtown" although downtown is only a short cab ride or a twenty minute walk away. There are several restaurants nearby including Dogfish Café, Pizza Villa (they have a bar), Amato's Italian, D'Angelo's Sandwich and a very nice Thai restaurant. There is also a Dunkin Donuts, Denny's and McDonald's within walking distance. The hotel offers a no charge breakfast consisting of bagels, juices, coffee, cereal, muffins, etc. The Inn at St John's reservation system differs from other hotels and resembles a B & B in that you reserve a specific room. Some rooms have an en suite bath, some have a private bath outside the room and the rest have a shared bath. I hesitated about the shared bath arrangement at first but it really isn't an issue. How much time do you really spend in a bathroom...especially when you are in a hotel? The staff at Inn at St John is friendly, courteous and very accommodating without being intrusive. On my last arrival my room wasn't quite ready but the desk clerk gave me my key and had my bag sent to my room while I went to lunch. When I checked out they held my bag until it was time for me to go to the Amtrak station and he called a cab for me. The only caveat anyone should be aware of is that this hotel has four floors and no elevator. If you don't mind stairs it's not an issue and by the way the hotel books up it looks like most people don't mind. The staff is more than happy to carry your bags to your room. If you're looking for an intown Portland hotel with an historic atmosphere that won't break your budget the Inn at St John is for you. I wish I'd discovered it earlier.

A Pleasant Surprise

3,8 en octubre 22, 2014

When booking the Inn online, we really weren't certain about the location of the Inn in regards to where we wanted to be in Portland. It turned out to be the perfect location for us which was a pleasant surprise. The Inn was very easy to get to from RT 302. Parking was a real plus since parking in Portland can be challenging. The Inn itself has so much character! We loved it! It is not your typical hotel layout as there are lots of crooks and crannies. Our room had a bathroom which was very small but served its purpose. The rest of the room was very comfortable. We never really heard our neighbors so it was quiet in that respect. In the lobby you were welcome to snacks and drinks any time of the day. Yummy cookies! We were able to walk to the stores and restaurants in Portland we wanted to go to. Mid-October rates were doable. We will definitely return to the Inn.

Inn at St John

3,6 en octubre 21, 2014

Very quaint historic B&B. Parking can be a little tricky as there are not enough spaces but the over flow lot is right next door. The room was very clean and spacious. Street noise can be heard as can the sirens from the ambulances because the hospital is across the street. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Inn at St. Johns

3,4 en octubre 20, 2014

This was a typical B and B with average fare for the breakfast. The staff was exceedingly helpful as I arrived quite late and the goal was to get our party settled, not quibble about forms, signatures, ID, etc. I had a gift certificate which was processed the next day, not upon arrival, so our sleep time was spared. The room was quiet and comfortable. The bath was spacious and furnished with all necessities.

Great value for a B & B during the beautiful fall in the Northeast!

We stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved it. It was more personal than a hotel and had so much more character. The staff were very helpful and kind; everything was great. I wish they'd had less carb-loaded options for breakfast, like maybe eggs or something, but all in all that is not a deal breaker. Plus, they had yogurt and water bottles available 24/7 which was nice!


3,6 en octubre 13, 2014

We wish there were healthier alternatives for breakfast like non-fat yogurt, oatmeal, bananas, and whole wheat bread.

We were looking for an inexpensive room for the night close to down town/dining. Very pleased with the size of the room and it was beyond clean. Staff were all courteous and always offering to help. Breakfast was above and beyond what we were expecting. We will definitely recommended to friends and family.

Good Basic Room

3,6 en octubre 10, 2014

I booked my room online without having ever seen it, depending on others' reviews. My stay was for six nights, and to tell the truth, I didn't hang around much. I mainly just came in in the evening, and left around nine or ten the next morning. They offer a continental breakfast that looked fresh and tasty (fruit, croissants, etc.) and a communal fridge stocked with water bottles and juice. Also, a nice little fridge was in my room, along with a microwave, safe, iron and ironing board, robes, and a nice TV and alarm clock. My room was on the top (3rd) floor, and I shared the use of a bathroom with some other guests; however, I never ran into a traffic jam situation, and found it readily available most of the times I needed it. No elevator, but I knew that before I got there, so that was no big deal. Staff made the bed and changed the towels every day. My only complaint was that the bathroom should have been cleaned (mopped, vacuumed, disinfected, etc.) every day since there were several people using it, and perhaps the rug in my room should have been vacuumed. Everyone seemed friendly and helpful. Good location. I felt safe staying here. I would stay here again.

Visit from the west coast Portland

3,4 en octubre 10, 2014

The room had a high-ceiling which kept it from feeling cramped despite there being limited room to walk around the furniture. Limited "closet" space but it was only for one night so wasn't a problem. Very quiet in the room despite being adjacent the lobby. Comfortable beds and good shower. Staff were knowledgeable and polite. Good location for quick access to the art museum and the harbor area.

Clean, no frills inn

3,2 en octubre 09, 2014

The shared bathroom was not an issue at all as they were maintained very well. Furthermore, there is a sink in your bedroom so that certainly helps. However, if you are travelling heavy/have difficulty climbing stairs, choose to stay at the ground floor as there are no elevators. Lastly, this has a more commercial feel, so not for those who are looking for homely B&B kind of stay. Nonetheless, a very clean and comfortable stay!

Lovely old world hotel

I was traveling with my son and daughter in law to a destination wedding in NH. We wanted a B&B experience instead of the chain hotel. Inn at St John was able to accommodate a party of 3 adults, which most B&B's cannot. The rooms were comfortable and spacious as well a beautiful. The staff was attentive and provided excellent tips on enjoying our 2 day stay in Portland before the wedding.

Nice Place

3,6 en octubre 03, 2014

The room we had was spacious and clean. We liked it very much and the staff was awesome. The only draw back was that our room faced Congress Street and it was noisy with traffic which didn't help our sleep much. A 15-20 minute walk to the shops and restaurants in the core near the water. If you want to stay closer to the main areas the prices go up quite a bit. The cookies are yummy and we would stay here again and request a quieter room.

quick stay before flying out early

4,2 en octubre 03, 2014

I was looking for a place to stay overnight before leaving on a very early flight, and the Inn at St John's provided the least expensive option that I could find while still close enough to see a bit of the tourist district. The service was outstanding, every person who interacted with me was extremely helpful and offered me service beyond what I'm used to. The room was clean, as was the private bath across the hall, and attention was given to little details. I will recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Portland.

A Little Gem

4,4 en septiembre 29, 2014

While staying somewhere downtown would've been nice we discovered one evening anywhere downtown would not only have been more than twice what we paid at the St. John Inn (and for what extra???) but far more noisy! The taxi ride was a mere $4 downtown with the discount coupon we got at the Inn and it was a short walk to the Sea Dogs Stadium which was the main point of our trip. We even took the bus in front of the Inn one night which was right on schedule and cheaper than the taxi. Ample on site parking (since we were on motorcycles) was a huge plus. Everyone at the front desk was great, answered all our questions, made terrific dinner suggestions and were just wonderful (and funny!!). Would stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommend!!!

We only stayed there one night, and it was a very pleasant environment. The location is ideal if you're taking a Greyhound because it's right next to a Greyhound bus station. It's about a 20 minute walk to get to the center of the Portland (Commercial Street). The walk is a bit uphill, and the area is not the best at nighttime so if you're walking or travelling alone I'd keep that in mind. Breakfast was very very basic - no eggs, no meat, no cheese. Mainly they had juices, yogurt, muffins, and bagels. Nothing fancy. When we left the hotel the staff was nice enough to let us store our bags there while we were walking around Portland one last time. It was very convenient cause when we returned we just picked them up and jumped on the Greyhound. Great trip overall!

Inn at St. John made our visit to Portland one that we will never forgot! The room exceeded our expectations and for the value I couldn't recommended a more perfect place. The location is just slightly off the beaten path but we didn't mind being a little bit away from all the hustle and bustle. We stayed on the main floor and despite what we thought it was nice and quite. Staff was extremely friendly and we couldn't have asked for a better stay! We will defiantly be back!

Affordable stay in Portland ME

We were looking for lodging in the downtown area of Portland. The location is very good. Minutes to the airport and to old town Portland. Public transportation is available a block away from the inn. The staff was very professional and helpful. Accommodations were excellent for the price. The only caveat was the lack of an elevator and our room was on the 3rd floor. The staff was very helpful in carrying luggage up to the room. If you are looking for quaint and charming, this place ticks those boxes. On premise free parking is also a perk. Breakfast was a nice continental style with coffee, tea, cookies and bottled water available all day. Definitely would stay here again.

Total accommodations on my wedding day!

I got married on September 13 and the room was amazing! I first used the room to get ready with my bridesmaids, then later on I spent the night with my new husband! We loved how pampered we felt. Whatever my girls or my husband requested during our stay was taken care of. I swear they had everything we needed! Thank you so much for a great stay after our amazing wedding!

My stay at the Brick Hotel - Summer 2014

My stay at the Brick hotel was very pleasant, I think both the quality of service and cleanliness exceeded my expectations. They were also kind enough to receive a package in my name and deliver it to my room, without charges. The only suggestion I would make is to install a baggage lift to help getting them up the stairs.

Clean, affordable Portland Inn with character

3,6 en septiembre 12, 2014

Inn at St. John may be a bit rough around the edges—it's old and could use updating and new decor—but it's got character, it's spotless, and it's pretty well located. For the money, compared to what you could spend in Portland, I think it's a fine choice. This was my second stay, and unless money somehow becomes no object, I'll stay there again.

We absolutely loved the Inn at St. John! The room was so cozy, quiet and clean. We will be back for another visit that is for sure :) Loved, loved, loved it!!

Pleasant, but with Some Drawbacks

4,2 en septiembre 10, 2014

Pros - Wonderful staff, with top-notch housekeeping and front desk workers. - Clean rooms - Great continental breakfast Cons - Bed was far too soft for us, made for some poor sleeping - Shower stall was very small Also, check out what room you are selecting, we unfortunately chose a room right on the street, which was slightly noisy. The Inn itself is a bit outside of Old Port, and walkability to the Old Port is questionable. That being said, it is a slightly quirky Inn that makes for a decent place to stay, with good value when compared to the larger hotels closer to Old Port. We would consider staying there again if we visit Portland in the future.

first time in portland

4,0 en septiembre 07, 2014

I was visiting portland with my sister for the very first time and traveling without a car, it was very nice to stay in a comfortable place located near the amtrak/bus station. The inn was away from the old port area but depending on the pace, it can take more or less than 30mins by walking, usually it took us about 20 mins. Loved the spacious room and service but the room we stayed seemed to have a bit of ac/ humidity problem, the room felt stuffy throughout the day and night so instead we turned off the ac and opened the windows, which fixed the problem. Overall it was pleasant stay.

Excellent value

3,6 en agosto 29, 2014

Even if it is an older hotel, it is obvious that they take great care in its maintenance. I had a single room, smallish but comfotable. The only drawback (and a very minor one) is that your private bathroom is in the hallway, a few steps from your room. About a 30 minute walk uphill to downtown Portland, I would suggest using the bus (line 1) that stops a few steps from the hotel.

Very friendly and helpful staff! Nice inn, would stay again.

We had a nice stay. Everything worked well and our room was comfortable, well-appointed, spacious, and quiet. The staff were very friendly and helped with restaurant recommendations.

We spent four lovely nights in the Inn and were impressed by the elegance of the surroundings and furnishings but also by how unpretentious the inn was. It retained its Victorian charm while being warm and welcoming. The room was spacious - set up was quirky but we LOVED it. The breakfast was standard continental fare. A few more fruit or non-bread options would have been great but no complaints at all. Will certainly stay there again.

Wonderful 2 Night Stay at The Inn at St. Johns

My fiancé and our little dog, Stella truly enjoyed our stay at The Inn. It was our first time visiting Portland and our first time traveling with our pup. The Inn at St. John's is dog friendly and very affordable. The staff was amazing and thanks to one of the house keepers tips on local dog parks, Stella's stay in portland was extra special. The Inn was quiet, comfortable and very clean! I recommend the Inn to not only those traveling with their pets, but to anyone looking for for outstanding accommodations while visiting the Portland area! My only recommendation would be to get one of the rooms with a bathroom in the room versus having to leave your room to get to your bathroom. But all and all a WONDERFUL stay!

Very nice older hotel but the area is not convenient to either the Arts District or the Old Port district. One could walk to the Arts District but the area didn't seem that safe (lots of homeless asking for hand-outs). Also, please be award when booking a top room that the stairs are STEEP.

One Night Stay in Portland

4,0 en agosto 17, 2014

We had a very nice room with a comfy bed, chairs to sit in, and a TV. A refrigerator was a plus, since we were traveling and had some items that did better out of the cooler. The men at the desk were welcoming and accommodating. Two lights were out in the bathroom, but the one that worked was perfectly good and provided plenty of light. Water, iced tea, and cookies were available on the first floor. Breakfast included several choices of items. We weren't aware that there was yogurt until after awhile when we saw someone with it. Perhaps some direction would help. Best of all, the Inn had personality and was a nice change from the standard motel. Due to the cost, however, we wouldn't use it as a one night stopover again. It would be delightful if one were staying in Portland.

Basic room but good value and very good service

Victorian, antique furniture, the best of old-school. And convenient to the airport if you have an early morning flight. Breakfast is humdrum, but there are cookies and drinks available at all hours, and the hosts couldn't be nicer. Next door is a good bistro, Dogfish Cafe, and there's a decent pizza-pub across the street. Short (20 minute) walk to the Old Port. Great place. I've stayed here many times.

The exterior view of the inn hides a treasure inside. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The private bath, while compact, had everything needed for a comfortable stay. Ample supply of bath products. Mini fridge and nice sized TV, two seating areas. Continental breakfast items and hours are sure to fit any travelers schedule. If you're a baseball fan, the Portland Sea Dogs stadium is only a short, one block walk from the inn. My favorite thing about the inn was its location. After the hustle and bustle of the Portland waterfront, it was nice to stay away from the chaos and noise. Very calming. I would recommend this inn and would stay here again.

My girlfriend and I recently stayed at the Inn at St John and we were completely happy with the stay. The bed was incredibly comfortably, the room itself was quite cute, the staff was very helpful and friendly. The Inn is a bit of a walk down Congress street from the main strip, but it's in no way secluded. The only minor annoyance was that the breakfast was lacking any sort of meat. Where's the bacon?

So glad we had a chance to stay at this lovely inn. It was just out of the main tourist area of Portland, and we were glad of that. Folks were very pleasant and extremely helpful! There were many offers to help with luggage and assist in any way possible as we made plans for our short visit. Recommendations, when asked for, were forthcoming, and we were helped to orient to Portland and the many things to do. Thank you to all at the Inn at St. John for making it such an enjoyable stay. Would definitely return when in the area!

The room was exceedingly clean, comfortable, and larger than expected. The AC unfortunately put out a mildewy smell, hence the funky.

Very pet friendly; we were traveling with an elderly diaper wearing dog. We were offered old blankets for bedding if needed and were told to just let them know if the carpet would need special attention when we left. The staff could not have been more understanding!

Charming place to stay

3,6 en agosto 07, 2014

Portland is an expensive place to stay overnight. Given that, the Inn at St. John is a good choice - not as expensive as some, and certainly more personal and individual than most. When we arrived with only a few minutes to spare before we were due at a Sea Dogs baseball game, we got quick directions to the Inn's parking lot (and Hadlock Field is a mere block away). Later the friendly staff helped us secure our bikes in their basement. The room, though compact, was very comfortable, and the outside traffic noise soon died down. In the morning, the Inn provided only a continental breakfast - perfectly adequate though not to usual B&B standards - but it did have complimentary coffee, lemonade and cookies available in the lobby most of the day.

OK stay for the price

3,0 en agosto 07, 2014

Breakfast was fair at best, store bought factory muffins, bagels and etc. At a B&B paying $175 a night you would think they would have fresh bakery breakfast breads delivered daily. Also the space at the breakfast bar is to tight, poor layout.

Great stay in Portland

4,2 en agosto 06, 2014

We stayed in room 7B at the Inn at St John and were very much happy with our selection of stay during our trip to Portland. We walked everywhere to visit and eat great food. It's at the end of Congress street, one of the foodie streets in Portland, and is only a short 10 minute walk to the busy part of Congress, and only another 10 minutes to downtown waterfront!

We've stayed in renovated historic inns before. This one was just a tad too small for a 3 night stay. Only one chair if we both wanted to sit. No place other than bed to place suitcases. Had private bathroom down the hall which was fine. Breakfast could have had more protein variety like cold hard boiled eggs. It was close to the bus stop which was a plus to get downtown without having to drive. But location was pricey for being so far away from the wharfs/docks. Very clean and well kept. Upon request staff provided ice at front desk.

"Maine Reasons to Avoid"

1,8 en julio 29, 2014

Finding myself in a leg cast a week before our trip, we called the Inn at St. John to make sure it was wheelchair accessible.We were told it was. At check in, as I looked at the staircase going up to our room, I asked the front desk clerk, "Miles", why we were told the building was wheelchair accessible? Instead of an explanation or apology, this lawyer-wannabe told me they "were grandfathered in from compliance." I pointed out that ADA was not optional and that he did not answer my question as to why we had been lied to. He was totally indifferent and gave us a perfunctory apology.As I struggled to work my way up the stairs, "Miles" just sat there and watched me. I felt embarrassed and humiliated as I inched my way up the stairs. I suppose "Miles" believed the Inn at St. John was also grandfathered from offering assistance to injured guests to minimize liability risk. Once in our room we found it quaint but were put off by the bathrobes provided, which had drops of tomato sauce on them...SERIOUSLY...yuck! Needless to say, we opted to forgo the bathrobes since they obviously were not fresh from the laundry. I suppose "Miles" advised housekeeping that the Inn at St. John was grandfathered from good sanitary practices as well. The so-called Continental Breakfast was simply pathetic. A stay at a B&B is expected to be a warm and personal experience. Other B&B's we have stayed at boast homemade gourmet baked goods, made-to-order omelets, or souffles. Needless to say, Supermarket packaged danish, cereal, and yogurt make for a rather shabby and impersonal offering. Perhaps this was more risk mitigation from "Miles".Finally, the building was in a very bad part of town. In fact the stores in the area only accepted cash or EBT cards. Whoa! So...We did not venture out at night...and we are from New York!So, unless you want to roll with your homies in the hood, don't mind snotty staff, are not a breakfast person, and find bathrobes with questionable hygene an adventure, avoid The Inn at St. John at all cost.

Respuesta del propietario

It is always unfortunate when a guest has not had an agreeable stay at our Inn. We truly strive for each and every guest to leave happy. Our building was built as an Inn in 1897. We would love to be able to accommodate people in wheel chairs or as in this guests case a temporary leg cast and roller. However without major construction it is impossible for us to modify the building to include ramps or other devices. Of course we are in full legal compliance with city and state regulations and prior to writing this response checked with the local ADA. Qualified historic buildings and facilities are not required to take any action that would threaten or destroy the historic significance of a historic property. Our building layout is well known to our front desk staff, however without knowing what was said when making the reservation I cannot comment on the matter further. When it was made clear to us that the guest was unhappy we immediately offered a full refund and assistance in finding another hotel room. This was refused and instead the guest paid for another night’s stay. We of course offered assistance to the guest going as far as walking out from behind the desk to be of assistance. This was refused as well and the guest made it up the two steps to his room without incident. Said guest did have a companion who was there to assist if needed as well. We provide bath robes to all of our guests as a courtesy. It is not our practice to leave dirty bathrobes in a room as they are always cleaned upon check out. If a guest is unhappy with the provided bathrobes we are more than happy to replace them. We are an Inn of 39 rooms with a maximum compactly of 100 people. Because of this we are not considered to be a bed and breakfast. Unfortunately we do not have the facilities needed to cook for this many people. We do however provide a quality continental breakfast with a quantity of choices. “Supermarket packaged danish” are not served here. We are located on the west side of in town Portland. This is home to most of the local B&B’s as well as the Victorian Mansion, Hadlock Field, and The Portland Transportation center. With ample free parking and convenient access to all Portland has to offer we are quite fine with our location. The building and area is secure and guests have no reason to feel unsafe. Again it is unfortunate you did not enjoy your stay with us. Please accept our apology if we did not inform you properly of the building handicapped status. We wish you all the best in your travels and have a wonderful day. -The Inn at St. John

Our room was at the top--three flights up. Of course, we brought all our stuff: computer, food for the fridge, suitcases. We arrived quite late (long after the bell-staff had left. The gentleman at the desk helped us get our stuff upstairs and let us leave our cooler on the lower level. The last night we were there, our daughter arrived and we had to complete a big project involving computers and printers. Again, the staff was supportive, helpful, and interested in our work. What a great location--even the restaurant (not connected to or part of the Inn) a few doors down is wonderful. Parking too was close and convenient.

Great stay for great price

4,4 en julio 28, 2014

This was our fist ever stay at a Bed and Breakfast. It was great. We were on a budget and the price of the cheapest room here was comparable with a stay at a low cost Super 8 style hotel in the burbs. When we checked in we were upgraded from a room with a bathroom across the hall to a room with a bathroom attached. We stayed in a corner room that was smaller than most hotel rooms, but it was still spacious. The bathroom was oddly spacious, but the space could have been better used. There was only a shower stall, no tub, although there was more than enough room for it (but I'm not complaining, we didn't have to go across the hall) Breakfast was decent, standard continental. Parking was weird. The Inn has a lot, but it is not big enough. When we returned from a night out, it was full, so I parked on the street (signs indicated it was ok as long as it wasn't street cleaning day, which it wasn't) When we got back into the Inn I mentioned it to the gent at the front desk and he told me we had to move our car to overflow parking at the Chinese restaurant next door or it would be towed. This was much more difficult than it sounds. The Inn is on a one way street, and a block away from the baseball stadium. It took me over 20 minutes to move the car because a baseball game had just let out. I had chosen the Inn because we wanted to be in an urban, walkable area. There isn't much to walk to, but it would have been the perfect local to bike from (had we brought our bikes). Most of the things we wanted to do were like 2 or 3 miles away. I would stay here again, but next time I will be sure to bring my bike.

Outstanding Service!

4,6 en julio 28, 2014

We enjoyed an overnight stay in Portland - the Inn at St. John was an excellent choice. The inn is beautifully kept and the cleanliness puts hotel chains to shame. Everywhere were thoughtful touches for a visitor, including homemade chocolate chip cookies upon our arrival! The staff are so welcoming and they know their city - they gave us great recommendations for spots to visit in the revitalized downtown. Will stay again the next time we are in Portland.

Nice, affordable inn with character

3,8 en julio 28, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn at St. John's. The desk staff were friendly and helpful, the continental breakfast was fine, room was big and comfortable. A few minor negatives that didn't bother me much but might be issues for some guests: there's no elevator and the stairs are steep (it's an old building, so this is part of the charm, but something to be aware of); we did have a private bathroom but it was tiny. Finally, location: the inn is very close to Hadlock Field, so you're in great shape if you want to see a Seadogs game; but you'll need to drive to just about any other place you'll want to go in Portland. It's a decent neighborhood with a few restaurants in walking distance, but it's well over a mile from the more vibrant part of the city. Good deal overall, though, and a nice, unique inn.

Excellent stay - staff was very helpful!

4,6 en julio 27, 2014

The room was very clean & bed was very comfortable. Every amenity was provided- even a little treat basket! Bike storage was a big plus. Breakfast was a great start to the day. Would stay again!

July in Portland

Very lovely B & B. Having a small refrigerator in the room was appreciated.

our stay for snoop dogg concert...

4,4 en julio 27, 2014

My wife and I stayed the night with our two boys for concert at expo and really enjoyed hotel. Great location, friendly staff and interesting guests from around the world, and a great price. Will be my first choice when returning to Portland. Also, fun restaurants nearby.

Very Accommodating Staff

4,2 en julio 26, 2014

Though this Inn was a bit off the beaten path, we were able to easily walk to the port area. The staff was very pleasant, helpful and accommodating. We arrived early and though our room was not ready, they had it made up immediately for us. The held our bags, recommended a great restaurant for lunch practically next door, and when we returned from lunch our room was ready and our bags were in the room. We would definitely stay there again.

Great value and great service

4,2 en julio 25, 2014

A really pretty place to stay. The room was very cute (although it didn't have a window) and a good size, and very clean. The attention to detail and service (helping us choose a place to eat, giving directions, super pleasant attitudes, parking) is what really made the Inn at St John special. I would definitely go back.

Weekend Getaway in Portland

4,2 en julio 24, 2014

The room was great, very nicely put together. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. We had an extremely early flight out, and the staff made sure that breakfast was ready for us before we left. I would absolutely stay here again.

The 125 year old+ Inn at St. John

4,2 en julio 22, 2014

We have been staying at The Inn at St. John on our way to and from northern Maine for probably 10 years. The staff is friendly and helpful, the continental breakfast is okay, you are within walking distance of several good restaurants (The Dogfish Cafe and Marguerita's),and D'Amato's sandwich shop. It is a 10-15 minute walk to downtown Portland or the waterfront and just below the Western Promenade, site of lovely old Victorian houses.

Excellent Place to Stay

5 en julio 21, 2014

Only stayed one night but everything was perfect.

value with a touch of class

4,6 en julio 19, 2014

The Inn at St John never disappoints. The staff is courteous and the little touches such as delightfully folded tissue and fresh cookies makes each guest feel as if he or she is being welcomed into a dear friend's home.


4,6 en julio 16, 2014

This was the nicest place we stayed in on our trip. Good price as well!

First Time Stay

4,4 en julio 14, 2014

The Inn at St. John was a great value. The staff was very polite and helpful. It wasn't as convenient to commercial street as I would have liked but there are several good restaurants within walking distance. The drive to commercial street only took like 10 minutes anyway so it wasn't that bad. We will definitely be staying there again on our next vacation.

Great value

3,6 en julio 13, 2014

A beautifully decorated hotel at a great value. It is only a short drive to downtown Portland and in easy access to all the highways. The continental breakfast exceeded my expectations and included bagels, fruit, cereal, yoghurt, english muffins, orange juice, muffins, tea and coffee.The staff were friendly and helpful.

Great stay at the Inn

4,2 en julio 12, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at the Inn at St. John. Staff was friendly and rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was OK, but not any more than you get at a holiday inn. Seating area was somewhat cramped.

2 night stay at The Inn

4,0 en julio 11, 2014

Great stay. The rooms exceeded our initial expectations. Never stayed at a nice place like this for such a budget price.

Nicely decorated, clean B&B

3,4 en julio 10, 2014

The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The stairs are very steep and hard to negotiate. Thankfully there was someone to help with bags otherwise we may never have gotten them to our room or back out to the car. The continental breakfast was below average and the set up was not very efficient. They could definitely use more seating for meals. The location was good---easy to find and easy to get downtown.

Comfortable stay at value price

4,2 en julio 09, 2014

Price is good value, room comfortable and spacious . Staircase without a lift to upper level rooms is not suited to elderly. Breakfast simple but plentiful.

Summer Stay

5 en julio 09, 2014

Had a fabulous room on the first floor (deluxe king); it was clean, comfy and the staff couldn't be nicer!

Great Stay at a wonderful inn

4,2 en julio 09, 2014

Having booked my one night stay just before arriving, I did not know what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived. The staff was very friendly and accomodating, the location was just a short walk away from downtown, and the complimentary lemonade and cookies were the icing on the cake. They even paid for my taxi to/from the Amtrak station. The only negative was getting my suitcase up to the fifth floor. If I ever get back to Portland, I will definitely stay here again.

Wonderful stay!

4,2 en julio 09, 2014

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Inn. The rooms were cozy but very comfortable and it made coming home at the end of the day something to look forward to. Everyone at the Inn was extremely friendly and the free cookies and drinks were very much appreciated. We'll definitely come back next time we're in Portland!

Great atmosphere. Great people. Great value

4,8 en julio 09, 2014

We had a short stay but enjoyed everything about the Inn at St. John. We will absolutely be back again. The employee were friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms were perfect and the location was great. Thank you!

Good value in a tough spot

3,4 en julio 07, 2014

As other reviews have mentioned, this inn is a short drive from the shops and restaurants in downtown Portland. What a lot of other reviews fail to mention is that the area surrounding the inn is very urban. We were taken aback by the surrounding storefronts and residences. A little scared to be honest. But we gave it a chance, and everything worked out great. We had no problems at all with security. The staff was very friendly and our room was clean. Standard hotel breakfast in the morning (bagels, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, coffee, etc).

Homey, comfy, bargain

3,2 en julio 06, 2014

This is an old building just a bit off the beaten track. The rooms have been nicely renovated and painted but still have a Victorian vibe. Don't expect "Office Type" amenities. You'll get a nice TV, plugs, and a comfortable bed. No USB. Free wireless is provided. The staff is friendly. The continental breakfast is mediocre - bagels, muffins, yogurt. Overall, the place is a great bargain and has it's own odd charm. Recommended.

Neat old lodging with updates and comforts necessary for a pleasant stay!

3,8 en julio 05, 2014

My husband and I were spending a week in New England, mostly in Maine, and love to stay in non-chain places with lots of charm! After reading reviews online, we chose the Inn at St John for the second night of our vacation. It is everything it advertises itself to be! Not near other inns or hotels, and across the street from the Portland bus station, I wasn't sure I had made the right choice, but we were pleasantly surprised upon entering the building. It was raining when we checked in, and we were happy to reach our third floor, very spacious and comfortable room!

Excellent stay! Will definitely stay again if in the area!

4,6 en julio 03, 2014

Very affordable, not too far from the harbor, good value.

Charming, friendly, calm

4,2 en julio 03, 2014

The level of service here is exceptional, very warm and friendly. We stayed in 2 different rooms (airline cancellation -- checked out, then came back) and both were very clean and comfortable. I'm extremely sensitive to noise, so I was especially happy to stay in a hotel that was built back when they didn't try to save money by making the walls and doors out of paper. Example: I happened to be in the hallway one day and was surprised to notice that the people next door had the door open and the television on. I hadn't heard it or them at all. Other things to love: simple breakfast options, free bottled water, spotless bathrooms, and friendly staff. I also loved the location. There's a great Thai place just a block away, and you're in walking distance of Holy Donuts and the park. I'd seen reviews that called the neighborhood 'sketchy', but that wasn't my impression.

Hidden Gem! Best Value!

4,8 en julio 01, 2014

My husband and I were headed up to New England for a friend's wedding, and we decided to stay in Portland, ME at the last minute (well, two weeks prior to twedding).Not only was it super easy to navigate the website, but every employee was either super nice or super helpful...most of them were both. We stayed on the third floor, which I was a little hesitant about because of the shared bathroom. The room was as quaint as the hotel itself, and the bathroom was clean. Overall, a WONDERFUL experience. We'll definitely return!

Value room at the inn

4,8 en julio 01, 2014

My husband and I stayed in one of the top floor rooms with a shared bathroom. The room had more amenities and was larger than I expected for the price. The semi private bath with a shower was fine for our purposes. The people at reception were very helpful and friendly. We will stay there again when we return to Portland.

A Good Value in the City

3,4 en junio 30, 2014

Portland, ME gets expensive in the summer for that short period when tourists flood the town. Inn at St. John has surprisingly reasonable rates for an Inn that's easy walking distance to the Arts District. It's a bit further to the Old Port area, but it's still reachable by foot and very close by car. The room I selected was small, which I expected. But it was cozy and quiet. The breakfast left a bit to be desired. I like some form of protein - hard boiled eggs or peanut butter, example. But fans of bread, cereal and muffins will be fine. There is also flavored yogurt. One nice touch is coffee and tea available at all times. Plus the rooms have an in-room coffee maker, which is handy if you're on the third floor. Overall, I'd stay again (and I will be).

Great value, convenient location, friendly staff

4,6 en junio 30, 2014

The Inn was great--very affordable price for a nice European style hotel. If you enjoy / like small, older hotels with a really nice atmosphere, this is a great find. I'd much rather stay somewhere with personality and style than a larger, more boring room that has the exact same amenities. The continental breakfast was well in line with expectations. You'll save plenty of money to afford lobster rolls for lunch and dinner :)

a very attractive B&B

3,8 en junio 29, 2014

Oldest B&B in Portland, historic building, very well maintained. Lobby and rooms had real charm and everything was very clean. Reasonably priced and within walking distance to Portland's attractions. Heartily recommend.

Excellent value!

4,4 en junio 29, 2014

Comfortable, exceptionally clean room (and bath). A little noisy--due to toilet "recycling" every 10 minutes or so, but otherwise great. Would definitely return. Staff friendly and helpful.

Lovely Stay

4,6 en junio 28, 2014

Immediately upon arrival, we were greeted by the friendly staff at the front desk. They made it clear that they were there to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Our room was on the third floor-- yes, it was a bit of a hike. However, as we had just eaten the free cookies in the lobby, so it worked out well (and we had grabbed bottled water from their mini fridge for after). They offered to help with luggage if any guest is concerned with the trek. Our room was large and comfortable. We appreciated having control of the AC! We had an in-room bathroom. I really dognt understand why people are confused by the website. I find it quite clear on the room description whether the bathroom is attached or in the hallway. Speaking of another complaint I've seen- yes, the back parking lot runs out of spots. But the adjoining parking lot of the Chinese restaurant even has an "Parking for Inn at St. John's" sign, and there is only a yard of difference. It didn't bother us in the slightest. Breakfast in the morning is in the lobby. It's a bit of a tight squeeze, but that's why they provide trays in case you want to go back to your room. It's not an earth-shattering buffet, but with bagels, toast, and yogurt, we were satisfied. For the price, I don't understand why you'd bother with another hotel in Portland! The staff was friendly, the room comfortable and spacious, and you're either a short drive or a decent walk to everything downtown. Also, there's excellent pizza across the street. Really.

Our new home in Portland

4,6 en junio 26, 2014

We found the room way beyond our hopes in style, comfort and size. We are budget minded but did opt for the private hallway bathroom, as it turned out this was even a bonus, our bath was clean and private and did not stink or steam our room as an ensuite might have. The staff were helpful and friendly to the highest degree. We are active and enjoy walking so the fourth floor walk up to our room was fine with us and when we tired of walking into the old port cabs were readily available - though there were fine and interesting eateries and bars in the immediate area. We will be back!

Great spot in downtown Portland

Would Very Much Recommend Inn At St. John

5 en junio 25, 2014

Inn at St. John in was a wonderful place to stay for the final couple days of our honeymoon in Portland. The hotel was charming and a bit quirky, but also had all the modern comforts you might need (all toiletries provided in bathroom, fridge in the room, air conditioning and room darkening shades, comfortable and clean bed with plenty of pillows). The front desk staff were exceptionally helpful in suggesting places to park or eat or explore. Food is provided in the main lobby which was wonderful for breakfast or a quick snack later in the day. Parking was convenient right behind the hotel. You COULD walk to downtown but we chose to drive and it was very quick and easy. Located about a block from Portland's AA baseball team, the Sea Dogs, where we decided to take in a very enjoyable game since we were so close! Overall, I'd definitely recommend Inn at St. John's!


4,6 en junio 24, 2014

Our visit at St. John Inn was the perfect way to begin our New England trip.

One night at the Inn

3,8 en junio 24, 2014

Stayed in a single room with a bathroom across the hall. Very quaint and the room was very comfortable and affordable for one person. A great deal!

Well appointed/ Great Value!!

3,8 en junio 24, 2014

Very nice, comfortable and charming inn! Room 9c was well appointed with very comfortable bed and linens. Stairs were a bit steep but it adds to the charm and character of the inn. Staff was very friendly. Bed and Breakfast might be a bit overstated, since they only provide a very marginal continental breakfast; from the price point this can be overlooked. Shared bath was fairly clean but a little dated in a public restroom kind of way. Would definitely stay there again if budget minded. CK

great place

4,6 en junio 23, 2014

"Inn at St. John's Review 6-20-14"

4,6 en junio 20, 2014

The Inn at St. John's was a wonderful B&B. Located within about 10 minutes of plenty of restaurants and other locales within Portland. Service was great and the room was very clean and nice. Would definitely go back on my next stay in Portland

Inn at St. John pleasant boutique stay

4,0 en junio 20, 2014

We arrived in the evening and were invited to unload our car and settle into our room before moving it around back. Plenty of parking. Our room was very large and clean, and the bed was comfortable. Both the evening and morning staff were pleasant. We would definitely stay here again. One note for people looking at this inn-- the stairs are quite steep and might be difficult for older people to negotiate. Book a room lower down if you need it as there is no elevator!

wonderful hotel perfectly located!!

5 en junio 19, 2014

We just stayed in this beautiful hotel and we loved it! First, they gave us an upgrade and we were very grateful. The room was huge! there was one king bed in one room, with a tv, a small table and chairs, and a small desk and another room with a single bed, a small couch and another tv. This room was separated by a french door, so it was perfect for me and my sister. The hotel is perfectly located in a residential area but is very close to walk to downtown and to historic Portland. We parked the car in their parking lot and walk all over. Breakfast was very good: hard boiled eggs, cereals, juices, coffee and tea, breads, spreads, and cake. We had some food that we needed to keep in the fridge and they were kind enough to keep it in their general fridge. We will definitely come back here and I strongly recommend this hotel to everyone. Book in advance, when we were there in June, the hotel was full.

Inn at st john

4,6 en junio 18, 2014

Recently renovated, old, charming hotel. Very clean and comfortable. Staff exceptionally pleasant and helpful. Reasonable prices. Nice continental breakfast including fresh fruit and 24 hour coffee/tea. Location about a 40 minute walk to Old Port.

Clean, comfortable, Afforadable lodging

4,0 en junio 18, 2014

We booked a king size room on the 2nd floor, and were surprised with an "upgrade" when we arrived. The upgraded room was on the first floor and quite spacious and comfortable. However, because it was ground level we could hear traffic and people walking by at all times (which is why we booked an upper level in the first place). The inn is a bit of a hike from the old port (1.5miles), we have walked it in the past, but chose to drive this trip. They have a wide variety of continental breakfast options and free water, coffee and cookies at other times throughout the day. I would recommend this hotel to those looking for a clean, comfortable and affordable option that don't mind either walking a lot or having to take their car out to dinner, etc.

Great find in Portland

4,4 en junio 18, 2014

We were delighted to find such a lovely Victorian inn right in Portland -- with the added benefit of it being dog friendly. Walking in felt like taking a step back in time. While our bath was "shared", it was just across the hall, was very clean, and felt very private. Staff were helpful, the computer in the lobby was a welcome convenience, the continental breakfast was more extensive than most, and the coffee/tea and cookies available all day were a considerate (and tasty) touch. We would definitely stay there again.

Friendly, helpful, comfortable

4,4 en junio 18, 2014

Great value. Convenient location. Clean, well-maintained. Knowledgeable, helpful, friendly staff. Would stay again.

Much better than I expected, and I expected a lot!

4,8 en junio 17, 2014

We stayed for 3 nights with our 6 month old baby in the shared bathroom hostel style room. It was very clean, had a microwave and mini fridge, and basically anything you could possibly want in a room. We shared a bathroom, but for the price it was awesome! We had a sink in the room also so we didn't have to use the bathroom except for the toilet and shower. They provided a pack-n-play for our baby. The room was honestly perfect. I will stay here every time I go to Portland. The breakfast was basic but had some great muffins and soy milk.

Pleasant Surprise

5 en junio 17, 2014

My stay at St. John Inn was pleasant. I arrived exhausted and was able to rest and get work done during the week. The staff were helpful, courteous, and professional. The value was outstanding and I will certainly stay there again when I visit Portland, ME. -J. Toby Knudsen

Great Comfort

The Inn has a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere and it's in a convenient location for touring around the area.

Recent visit

3,4 en junio 15, 2014

The rooms were as described on the website. We were a little disappointed in the size if the bathroom. Also, don't expect nice or new towels. Instead, expect for them to be rough and very used. Overall, decent experience, but I think we will book elsewhere on our next visit to Portland.

Lovely as always!

4,6 en junio 14, 2014

For this trip I got to introduce the St. John to a good friend I was traveling with. We were both in love by the time we left! As always, so wonderful to have this treasure right in downtown Portland - and at such a great price too!

A nice hotel that is well priced.

We love staying at the Inn at St. John cause we can bring our dog. Its the comforts of home, but without a big price tag. Also, we appreciate the free water and cookies threw out the day.

this was my first visit but definitley not my last to this charming hotel. The little touches were so special.

Lovely Overnight at St John

4,4 en junio 08, 2014

A perfect place to stay when visiting Portland. The staff is extremely helpful and easy to talk to. The rooms are very personable and they offer a wide variety of price ranges, meaning you can save money as long as you don't mind sharing a restroom with other guests (I spent this extra money on delicious Maine lobster!). And my favorite part was the hospitality of the Inn - free bottled water, fresh-baked cookies out in the lobby for guests in the evening, and a friendly continental breakfast in the morning. I will definitely stay here again the next time I am in Portland.

Great place to stay

We arrived very late, after one AM. We were greeted warmly by the man at the front desk and to our room in minutes. So grateful for a good breakfast selection the next morning and the lovely cleaning staff. Yet another happy experience at the Inn. Thanks so much:)

Great Stay

3,6 en junio 04, 2014

We've stayed here a few times whenever we come to Portland. It's always clean. A few quirky/unique things about the place (example: variable hot water). But usually such a bargain. This time slightly more expensive than usual because of the season but still worth it.

Clean & Comfortable

3,8 en junio 04, 2014

A friendly, welcoming inn that offered a comfortable home away from home for a weekend overnight. The lovely room was well-appointed and, although, small was a cozy retreat. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only issue was the frequent noise from other customers going to and from their room to their private bath across the hall.

Great value!!

3,6 en junio 04, 2014

About a 20 minute walk from downtown. There were complimentary coffee, tea, cookies, and water bottles in the lobby 24 hours. Also the typical complimentary bagels, cereal, oatmeal for breakfast. Overall nothing too fancy, but fabulous value.

Great service and excellent inn

4,6 en junio 02, 2014

We had a great time at the inn and found the staff to be extremely helpful and friendly. We had a room with a private bath. The room was small but comfortable and everything was extremely clean and high quality.

Low key treasure

4,6 en mayo 30, 2014

Inn at St. John has unassuming street frontage that is simple and inviting (but don't blink twice or you will miss it!). The interior welcomes with vintage elegant trim and decor. So many new hotels have what I might call "surface elegance", this is the real deal. The second floor hallway with the funky set of two steps entering the 3rd floor was a surprise yet in its way charming. My small double room was the perfect size with a charming en-suite set up for making coffee or tea, I was happy to just go downstairs for their simple and tasty continental breakfast. The lilac wallpaper in my room AND in its adjoining private bath was again elegant without pretension. The provided fluffy white robe made going out into the hallway no big deal. The bed was comfy with just enough room to get to both sides of the bed. The plugs were adequate for charging my electronic devices. I can't wait to return to the Inn at St. John if I ever again need an overnight stay in Portland, ME.

Great small inn with steep stairs

4,2 en mayo 28, 2014

This is a charming inn with great beds. However, the stairs are quite steep and I was recovering from foot surgery and my mom has a bad back. I called to ensure that we were on the first floor. Well, we were, technically. They have a "lobby" floor and our rooms were on what I would call the second floor. I was unhappy about this. The inn itself was great and the front desk staff very helpful with this exception.

2 Relaxing nights

3,8 en mayo 27, 2014

Our 2 night stay at St. John's was pleasant and relaxing. The room needed some updates to decor,especially in the bathroom. But the hotel was a friendly and easily accessible place. I'd go back.

Charming B&B

We had a wonderful and affordable stay for two nights at the Inn at St. John. Room and bathroom was clean, staff was very friendly, and we had a typical continental breakfast with muffins, etc. If I had any complaint it was that the blowing flags hanging outside our room kept my husband up all night long the second night we stayed there. I slept like a log but if you're a light sleeper, I would certainly request a room other than 7A. I would not hesitate to stay here again!

A great affordable place to spend the evening

My girlfriend and I had a great time here. The rooms and bathrooms were spotless and the location is right near downtown Portland.

repeat visitors will be back!

4,6 en mayo 17, 2014

We have stayed at the Inn twice now and each time has been great. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the rooms have been excellent. Very clean with more attention to detail and courtesy items (bottled water, toothpaste, etc) than other places we've stayed. Great, convenient location - can't ask for more! Much appreciated!! Keep up the great work!

Adequate and clean room

Rooms were clean, and location felt secure. I would stay again if visiting Portland.

The Inn at St. John is a trip back in time. Excellent.

Great spot to stay!

4,4 en mayo 15, 2014

We were very happy with our stay. The Inn was easy to find; parking was very close and convenient. The staff got us checked in, in just a minute, to our first floor room. We were glad to be on the first floor, as the stairs looked quite steep, for my husband's bad back. The room was very nice, updated, clean, and even had a fridge. The staff were very nice and helpful - suggested a few restaurants, which I were off the beaten track, and excellent! (We don't like the chain restaurants). Breakfast was everything we needed; we appreciated the bottles of water, that we could take from the fridge, whenever needed. We enjoyed our stay, and would definitely come back!

Come off season for the people, but leave before meal-time.

3,6 en mayo 14, 2014

The room itself was nice and cozy. It had more of a hotel feel than a typical bed and breakfast but it was nice. The best part about it was that everyone there was incredibly nice. We had one individual offer to give us hints and suggestions for sightseeing while in Portland, but he never followed up. We managed just fine, but his input would have been nice. Going off-season was great as the stated value in the room was far more than we wound up paying. I wouldn't pay the full price for that room but it was quite the value at what we payed. The room, specifically and the Inn in general were all very clean and the housekeeper did a great job of tidying up when we were out for the day. Good thing there are plenty of restaurants nearby as the Inn offered a "Continental Breakfast" which, for us at least, consisted of dry, flavorless muffins and passable coffee. I think next time we're going to try a bed and breakfast that is a bit more bed and breakfast-y, but I wouldn't rule out a return trip here.

Great experience

3,4 en mayo 14, 2014

Great welcome, great services, good location. Rooms are quite small but nice. Breakfast zone is to small i think. The first day, we have to waiting other guest finish to be able to take a sit and enjoy the breakfast... I'll return at St-John for my next trip in Portland for sure !

A pleasure

4,8 en mayo 13, 2014

My wife and I stayed here for our first visit to Portland. The staff was helpful and friendly without being in any way cloying or clingy. The room was clean, nicely lighted, tastefully decorated. I particularly appreciated the Van Gogh print on the wall above the old-timey chest of drawers. The Inn is located at some distance from a lot of the city's attractions, but driving was relatively painless, and the Inn provides ample parking for its guests. It was an exemplary stay all around, and my wife and I will definitely be staying at the Inn at St John on our next trip to Portland.

Great stay and great value!

4,6 en mayo 07, 2014

We had a great time! We would recommend a stay here to anyone looking for a unique place to stay.

Short but sweet stay at Inn at St. John

4,8 en mayo 06, 2014

Excellent hotel, convenient location, great atmosphere. The only problem was that my stay was so short as I got in late and had to head out first thing in the morning. I stay in a lot of higher end, chain type hotels for conferences and meetings, and I much prefer the individuality and style of some place like Inn at St. John, and the price is very reasonable considering it's Portland. Would not hesitate to stay again, and I hope I get the chance to.

Wonderful stay at the Inn

4,4 en mayo 05, 2014

Our stay was without fault, service excellent, room comfortable and very clean. Hotel is conveniently located about a 15-20 min walk to the Portland waterfront area. Free parking, internet and in room safe. Absolutely nothing to complain about and would stay here again without any hesitation.

Nice Rooms but not really a B&B

3,8 en abril 30, 2014

The room was nice and affordable, but the breakfast was not really that much different than what you would get at a decent hotel. The only warm food was instant oatmeal that you made yourself in the microwave.

Great deal for a stay in Portland, ME

4,4 en abril 29, 2014

So affordable, comfortable, quiet, and clean. The room was just the right size, nicely decorated and appointed...VERY comfortable bed. The bathroom was very clean, great shower, and great towels. Enjoyed 20 minute walk to the State Theater and restaurants. The breakfast was uninspired but had the basics. I look forward to staying there whenever I'm in Maine's big city.

We always stay at the St. John

What a steal! Super cute, affordable and relatively close to downtown. The staff was really nice and helpful. We went off season and it was a little chilly to take the 20 minute walk downtown, but if you have a car, they have parking. Very small but adorable rooms, nice and clean, and very affordable.

The Inn at St. John, Portland, ME - not a B&B

The hotel and staff are wonderful, and a great bargain. If climbing stairs is a challenge, request a ground level room. Warning - no elevator!

Loved the Inn at St. John!

4,8 en abril 22, 2014

The room was lovely and scrupulously clean. We even discovered that the Inn takes dogs. The staff were all very friendly, and breakfast next morning was quite good. I would definitely stay there next time we're in Portland.

The service was excellent, the room was wonderful, the inn itself is unique and delightful. We look forward to staying there again.

This was my second stay at Inn at St John, I love the Victorian feel of the place. Its great for a romantic get away or if you just want to be right in the center of town. Its definitely my favorite place to stay in Portland. The breakfast is a very nice continental breakfast with a good variety to choose from. Don't expect to get hot items though.

Inn At St John

4,4 en abril 12, 2014

We have stayed at the Inn many times. Their level of service has always been consistent; it's what we've come to expect. And the Inn is beautifully done; cozy; comfortable. They do not offer dining, however they have a great selection of continental breakfast items. The Portland area offers an aray of dining experiences. We highly recommend staying at The Inn At St John.

It was a wonderful stay. Everything was outstanding. I would certainly return.

C'est un charmant hôtel vieux style, un peu rococo bien propre avec tous plein de petites attentions. Situé en bordure du quartier des arts et du le vieux port, on peut faire un beau tour de ville pour autant que l'on aime la marche.

Great place to stay!

4,6 en abril 03, 2014

It was a very good value, I would've liked to have a better breakfast spread but for the price it was acceptable. The room was beautiful and large. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Cozy, warm, delightful

4,4 en abril 02, 2014

The Inn at St. John really surprised us in a pleasant way. We were expecting a neat, clean room and nothing more. Our room was nicely decorated and well-proportioned with a big bathroom. The bathroom was well stocked with big, thick towels and a good selection of high-end bathing products - soap, shampoo, etc. Parking and an adequate continental breakfast are included in the price. Staff was efficient and cordial and offered dining suggestions when we checked in. We definitely plan to make the Inn our regular 'pied a terre' when we visit our family in Portland.

Very good.

3,6 en abril 01, 2014

Very nice rooms, a good continental breakfast, and good service. The Inn is a very good value and I would definitely stay there again.

Stay at the Inn with my lover

I really enjoyed my stay at the Inn. It was too short, only a night. The room was really charming and we enjoyed to have our private bathroom. We were greeted in a very warmful manner. And we received good advises about the city. And there was plenty parking space! We recommand this Inn!

Great Value

4,8 en marzo 30, 2014

Clean room and bathroom. I reserved the smallest room with a private bathroom. It was a slow night so they upgraded my room a level. I found the wifi to be fast and reliable. The TV had plenty of channels. Staff was very nice. Continental breakfast was fresh and had enough choices. All in all there is no where else I would stay in Portland.

Excellent value, clean and safe

I would highly recommend The Inn at St. John in Portland. Our room exceeded our expectations in furnishings, decor style and size. The room was quiet and perfectly groomed by the cleaning staff (the towels were very soft and clean). Another note: the black-out curtains/blinds were very appreciated for a very dark-room for sleeping. The staff gave excellent service (checked in with us about room temperature & took care of cancelling and making restaurant reservations). The hotel itself is perfectly clean and well-maintained (very clean floor, freshly painted, very clean everywhere, even in winter when we visited). And, of course, the price simply can not be beat. We would definitely stay here again when visiting Portland.

Unexpectedly Lovely Place to Stay

4,8 en marzo 28, 2014

The Inn at St. John is this surprisingly affordable place to stay in Portland. The rooms are super clean, the staff are amazingly friendly and helpful, and it's easy to get around town (the bus stops right outside and it's not a far walk for the adventurous!). This is now my go-to place to stay and I look forward to it every time.

Wasnt sure what to expect when we booked, thought it might be like a cheap hotel. Not the case! It was great, really cozy rooms which are very well set up. Loved the front lobby, felt like I was walking through an Inn from decades or centuries ago. Awesome spot and an excellent value!

March Stay at Inn at St. John

3,0 en marzo 23, 2014

Stayed on a Tues, Wed. night in March. Top floor, facing Congress Street. Traffic noise was very loud throughout the stay. Wed. night, a tractor trailer truck parked in front the Inn, idled all night long, keeping me away from 2am through sunrise. After my complaint, the Front desk called Portland PD, truck move across the street to private parking lot, no improvement. Portland PD came again, truck moved again, back in front of the Inn. A very noisy night. The Inn is in somewhat industrial area. The Inn did not compensate me in any way for my sleepless night.

Very Impressive B&B

4,2 en marzo 19, 2014

Hotels don't normally leave me impressed. On a whole, they make me feel claustrophobic and out of place. The Inn at St John was both affordable, and exceptionally comfortable. It provided me with a sense of a cosy home, without the musty grandparents' basement smell. I enjoyed my stay immensely, and I'm positive I will be back.

Friendly staff and nice setting

Cute Place, Long Walk From Downtown

Loved my stay at the Inn at St John. Everyone was very friendly and they gave me a free upgrade so I didn't have to carry my belongings up the stairs. The room was beautiful and clean and I had a wonderful stay. Would love to go back and stay again.

Jan 2014

3,2 en febrero 23, 2014

Upstairs room directly overlooking street was heated by a space heater; room cool in evening and road noise horrific. Bring ear plugs. Bathroom VERY tiny - you hit your head on the sink if you sit on the toilet and only a skiny person can shower in the shower stall. If you are tall or over 135 lbs it's going to be a tight squeeze in the shower. Breakfast offering met expectations (nothing hot like eggs/bacon) but you can make your own oatmeal and there is enough of a selection to choose from. Staff did carry my luggage to the 2nd floor; otherwise no interaction with them and no greeting when I returned from work or have a good day when I left for work. (I'm from the south so we wish everyone a good day and good evening when they return. It's the nice polite thing to do.) Room was truly clean - bathroom spotless. I will likely stay again but will bring ear plugs and not stay in a room facing the road. Will try to locate a room with a larger bathroom so I don't knock my teeth out when I sit on the toilet. Stairs are extremely STEEP in grade; railings provided so use them.

pleasant surprise

I needed a place for the night due to weather and scheduling issues. This was the closest to the location I needed. So much better than I was thinking I would find.

I booked a room at The Inn at St. John's for a father/daughter weekend. When we got there the lady at the desk was so kind and welcoming. When we got to our room it was very nice and cozy. Dad could not stop talking about how much he liked the Inn. He thought the breakfast was delicious, the beds were really comfy and the place was really clean. I can't wait to go back again!

highly recommended

4,8 en febrero 11, 2014

I spent 2+ weeks at the Inn at St. John in January/February, 2014 and was delighted with it. I stayed mostly in Room 107, one of their most expensive, but still very reasonable and quite comparable to much more expensive rooms in other Portland hotels/b&b's. Room was nicely furnished, very comfortable and was kept immaculately clean. Continental breakfast offered muffins, English muffins, croissants, toast, hot and cold cereal, juices, coffee and tea; again, a notch above what one might expect in a relatively inexpensive place. Staff were always there, always pleasant. I highly recommend the Inn to any who are considering a stay there.

This is a fantastic Inn with charming rooms and very friendly, helpful staff. We are frequent visitors and always feel like we're coming "home" when we arrive.

Like traveling into the past with spacious rooms, wonderful staff and a great value. Whenever we need a place to stay in Portland, it's alway St Johns!

Another Great Stay

4,6 en enero 31, 2014

I've stayed at the Inn at St. John several times, and always love going back. The staff are amazingly friendly, the rooms are so comfy and cute, and there are snacks available 24/7! I do think this was my first time staying in a room that was adjacent to Congress St., and that made the street noise a little more in-your-face, but tolerable - especially since it was a chillier night and the heater was running most of the time; I had no problems sleeping (and I am prone to, especially away from home).

Excellent place to stay with a great location!

Can't beat the price. There isn't much going on in the immediate vicinity of the Inn, but Portland is so walkable that it didn't much matter. The staff were friendly, the room was clean if a bit dated, and there was ample off-street parking for our car. If you're budget conscious and don't mind a little walking (or have a car), I'd definitely recommend the Inn at St. John.

Affordable charm in Portland ME

I hesitate to share a review of this place, preferring to keep it a secret. But the Inn at St. John's deserves recognition. It is a reasonably priced, professionally run place with lovely old-timey style. My girlfriend and I have stayed three times over the last few years, each time in a different room. The rooms are reliably clean and quite charming. Love this place.

Tremendous value. Stay here!

5 en enero 25, 2014

I must admit that upon pulling up to the Inn located in a down toen looking area I was skeptical. Check in was a breeze. Front desk staff were pleasant ant helpful. You actually get a key to the room. Reviews said the rooms were small. Our room was large. King bed, desk, seating area. Perhaps it was narrow but spacious enough. The unroll Kurig coffee maker a huge plus. The bathroom was well stocked and certainly clean. Coffee, tea, cookies available in the lobby all hours of the day. Breakfast was delicious and ample. Our room was located directly off the lobby, sound was not an issue. All in all this in was a tremendous value! I will certainly stay here in the future.

Comfortable Room, great value!

4,2 en enero 25, 2014

We had the luxury room very spacious with a comfortable bed. Bathroom with lots of nice towels and a great jaccuzi type tub, bubble bath provided! The Keurig coffee machine was a nice surprise. The continental style breakfast was more then adequate. Definitely recommend and would visit again.

LOVE this place!

4,8 en enero 24, 2014

We only needed a place to stay for one night, and I found the Inn online. My husband was taking me to Cross Jewelers, and the Inn is only a mile or so from the Arts District of Portland. The place is just gorgeous. Very European. It reminded me of a B & B we stayed at in Dublin. Beautiful decor and old world charm. Very friendly staff & we were upgraded to a King Room. Cozy, clean and really pretty. Breakfast in the AM was lovely. Highly recommend. We will be back when the weather gets nice.

Small but clean and cozy room

4,0 en enero 22, 2014

We were basically looking for a place to lay our heads so the smaller room was cozy rather than confining and still a good deal based on what we paid. Very helpful reception went out of their way to give a detailed route to a restaurant we were considering. And very generous breakfast buffet we lingered over more than an hour reading the complementary newspaper on a lazy Sunday morning.

Always a good place

4,2 en enero 21, 2014

This is the fifth time I have stayed here. The staff are welcoming and friendly. The rooms are pretty and the beds are wonderfully comfortable. Each time I have stayed I've had a room that faces the back parking lot and it is very quiet. You have the option of a private bath or shared bath, and both have always been very clean. Parking in Portland is awful, so it is convenient to have parking available adjacent to the Inn. While it is walking distance to downtown, a 20 minute walk, I would not do so late at not or alone, as the people on the streets are incredible aggressive.

Wonderful Day in Portland, ME

4,4 en enero 20, 2014

I wanted to visit Portland, ME because of all of the wonderful things, I had heard about it, and really wanted to go out to dinner for lobster. I was only staying one night, so I decided to stay at the St. John's Inn, mainly due to the affordability, and it is non-smoking. When I booked my reservation, in the comments section, I stated that I have asthma and allergies to perfume and tobacco. Right away the wonderful gentleman at the front desk called me. When I arrived, he let me view a couple of he rooms, that they had not cleaned yet, to see if they would accommodate my allergy issues. I picked one, and he had the cleaning staff clean the room with an environmentally friendly cleaning products. I have worked in the airline industry for many years, and have been a flight attendant. Because of this I have stayed in thousands of hotels. This was the first time anyone had ever been so considerate about my allergies. They made me feel so special; it was almost like being in a spa. The service is top notch. They advised me on places to go, gave me maps, helped with the bus schedule, and offered to carry my bags. These things are offered at a lot of hotels, but it's the care, compassion and joy, that they put into their jobs, that makes the difference. I read a review that said this was in a Downtown/seedy area, and they did not feel safe. That person has obviously never been to New York, Chicago, LA or Detroit. I'm form Chicago, and I was a single female traveler, and don't consider this area unsafe. It was more like a neighborhood to me. I found the Inn to be cozy and cute. It's not in the main tourist area, but is a short cab or bus ride away. It is worth looking into if you want to stay somewhere that has a history, and makes you feel like a part of the area; or are on a budget. I so enjoyed my stay, I’m planning a weekend there with friends this year.

Great place!

4,4 en enero 20, 2014

I had a great experience during my 1 night at Inn at St John. It is extremely convenient as far as getting to Maine Medical Center (would be walking distance although it happened to be raining like mad), the room was small but comfortable, and breakfast was pleasant. The staff was also very welcoming. The only downsides, that didn't really bother me, was an outdated TV and a small shower. Would definitly stay there again!

These are beautiful value rooms located in a renovated, historic hotel within walking distance of the Old Port. If you are looking for a 5 star plated breakfast, this isn't the place for you, but if you are looking for beautiful rooms with character, friendly service, and a convenient location at an exceptional value this is the best stop in Portland! I have stayed here 5 times in the past 2 years, and intend to be back soon!

We wanted to be kinda close to home, but a getaway for the 2 of us,no children.I found Inn at St Johns on here and the reviews were good. So we decided to do it..We had a wonderful time ,he took advantage of the jet tub for a very sore shoulder. We slept well.There was food and coffee in the a.m. and it was good also. If there was 1 thing we didn't like was parking, it is down town, the overflow wasn't far just a pain to get to with one ways etc but overall a wonderful time.. Thanks ISJ

My partner and I have stayed at St. John's Inn several times and always have a great experience. The rooms are all so unique and different, we love not knowing how the setup in our room is going to look. The wall paper is a little dated, but who cares. Staff is very friendly and helpful, location is only a quick walk or cab ride to downtown Portland. Our most recent stay was during a snow storm, our car was cleaned off and shoveled out, I couldn't have been more impressed!

Our stay at the Inn at St John was all you could ask for.

4,8 en enero 06, 2014

My wife and I had never been to Maine and our stay with you was a dream come true. The location was convenient and provided many opportunities for us to explore. The room and all of the amenities that the Inn at St John had to offer was first class. The cookies were a nice surprise and tasted fresh from a bakery.

I love staying at this cute little gem of a place. The staff is super friendly and the inn is always clean. Such a great value and close proximity to downtown happenings. We look forward to our next stay in Portland.

Great snowy sojourn!

4,6 en enero 05, 2014

We had a terrific visit at the Inn. We got snowed in with our child and dog an extra day and the inn was very accommodating. The inn is a great value in the winter and we've already recommended it to others. A couple people had cars get stuck in the snow and the staff moved them for them. A great find!

A hidden Jem in Portland

This is a nice old hotel. There are no elevators, or pool BUT the place is beautiful. The room was wonderful, there is free wi fi, a decent breakfast and the hotel is a great value. I will use it again when I stay in Portland.

Warm winter stay in Portland

4,8 en enero 03, 2014

It has become a New Year's tradition. One night stay in Portland before New Year's Eve. My girlfriend and I have been staying at the Inn for at least 4 years now and 3 New Years. Service is always good, we got an upgrade which was very nice. Breakfast is always good and well they have milk and cookies out all day. A wonderful place to stay no matter the room.

Inn makes Portland visit easy and comfortable

3,2 en enero 02, 2014

We came here once as a couple and recently returned with two young kids and their grandma. Everyone had a great time. Clean rooms, friendly staff, easy booking/check out, affordable rates, and multiple options for continental breakfast. Inn is near the train station as well as close to great dinner spots and rooms are toasty warm and quiet. Thank you!

Nice and peaceful

4,2 en enero 01, 2014

Nice atmosphere, coutious staff, very neat rooms, fully equipped with all the basics. Decent and fresh continental breakfast, free parking and very close to everything. Will return in the summer for sure!

A Solid Stay

3,4 en diciembre 30, 2013

The jacuzzi suites won't blow you away, but overall a good value and good place to stay.

My favorite in Portland

5 en diciembre 30, 2013

I've stayed at the Inn at St. John three times so far, and I always have a wonderful stay. The staff are always friendly and helpful, and my room is always cozy and comfortable. It's a great deal (especially in the off-season), and an easy walk (or, if you're in a rush, bus ride) up Congress Street to the middle of town. I plan to keep coming back every time I stop in Portland. (Note: Wasn't sure what to mark for dining -- do they mean nearby? Portland in general has great food. If they mean at the hotel itself, they don't have a restaurant, but they do always put out nice breakfast food in the morning and cookies in the afternoon, plus tea/coffee/hot chocolate all the time).

Great value in cozy inn

4,6 en diciembre 30, 2013

We've stayed at the Inn at St. John twice in the past four weeks and found it's decor charming, prices unbeatable, and service incredibly friendly and responsive. Additionally, it's near the hub of Portland for restaurants and shopping. You must set your expectations for the price point, and if you're on an upper floor, you must be comfortable with stairs. Given that, we highly recommend it.

Initial visit ... looking forward to next time

4,4 en diciembre 29, 2013

Quaint, accessible, terrific front desk staff. We appreciate the self-park (included in room cost), and easy in/out.

A Perfect Little Place

4,6 en diciembre 26, 2013

Super cute and super cheap- this is where I go when I am in Portland. An easy walk to the best brunch spots. Next door is an awesome hipster BBQ place that even has some chill live music,


4,6 en diciembre 25, 2013

We stayed at St. John's Inn because our daughter was interviewing at Maine Medical Center which is right next door to the Inn. This is a cozy place. Clean and quiet. Friendly staff.

Perfect getaway!

4,6 en diciembre 19, 2013

This place is perfect for a weekend getaway! Food was great (although I wish they had a bit more selection for breakfast), service was excellent, it's very reasonably priced and they cleaned off my car during the storm! I'll be coming back again with my boyfriend for more of these weekends :)

will stay here again!

4,8 en diciembre 18, 2013

Loved everything about this bed and breakfast! Will definitely book a room here again when in the Portland, Me!

Another great stay at Inn at St. Johns

4,0 en diciembre 16, 2013

We've stayed many times here on our way to and from Logan Airport, and just for weekend getaways. Certainly the best value in Portland during the winter months when rates are unbelievably reasonable. We noticed this time that little measures had been taken to keep improving the experience, e.g. Keurig's in room, fancy folded towels. Have mixed feelings about sharing this best kept secret with the world. (Breakfast buffet adequate, but could go way lighter on sweet stuff and show a little more imagination, e.g. have hard-boiled eggs, maybe a cheese selection, etc.) Mike Woodard, Bar Harbor

Everything exceeded my expectations

4,0 en diciembre 15, 2013

My husband & I were looking for a place to overnight in Portland on our way home from the DownEast coastal area, mostly to break up the ride, but also to grab dinner at one of our favorite restaurants there. We didn't want to spend too much & found the Inn at St John online. From the look of the photos, the Victorian decor of the rooms didn't seem to be our style, but we read some good reviews & decided to give it a try, hoping it would at least be clean. Although the room decor indeed wasn't our style, it wasn't offensive, perfectly fine & spotlessly clean. I also didn't expect a fridge & coffee maker in the room, complimentary water, coffee, tea & snacks in the lobby & free continental-like breakfast. In fact, it was so comfortable, we decided to stay an additional night. We will definitely stay there again!

really nice Inn

5 en diciembre 15, 2013

The Inn at St. John had one of the best rooms I've stayed in down through the years. The Lobby, breakfast area, and My room were all spotless. Choices of Food for breakfast were excellent. Staff were real nice during check-in and check-out. Lobby decorated with a lot of taste for Christmas. I'll be coming to Portland more often now that I've found this Gem.

Great value city inn

4,2 en diciembre 15, 2013

Spacious, quiet room, tastefully appointed, meticulously clean,, at a great price!


5 en diciembre 14, 2013

We were so wonderfully surprised. With the price being so reasonable we were a bit hesitant as to what we might walk into, but it far exceeded our expectations. Really well done!

A Tuesday night in Portland

4,8 en diciembre 14, 2013

My son and I went to Portland for a Beer drinking excursion. We didn't want to spend all of our $ on a room and found the Inn at St John. It was half price of the other hotels in Portland and was very nice. My wife and I will return in the near future.

Portland Getaway

3,6 en diciembre 11, 2013

We had a room with a hall bath and it was actually really nice. It was really clean and simple. They had a good spread at the continental breakfast, but no other food. They also had 24/7 coffee, tea and bottled water free of charge. It's kind of far from the waterfront, but if you don't mind walking (or taking relatively cheap cab rides), it's a great value.

December 6-8, 2013

We arrived at St. Johns and were delighted with the warm, friendly and courteous staff. They immediately made us feel welcome and were extremely helpful. Our room was charming, the bed was super comfortable and everything was really clean. The continental breakfast was delightful with fresh muffins, bagels, cereal, fruit and granola bars. I am glad St Johns was recommended to us. We will definitely be back.

Lovely Inn and Caring People Running It. Room was well appointed.

Thanks for a lovely stay in Portland.

Nice place!!

This place is awesome. For the price, you can't beat it. It's very clean, and the breakfast is great too. I have stayed many times and I will continue to stay.

This was our first stay at Inn at St. John. Also our first time in Portland. Lovely inn with helpful/friendly staff. Lovely room and comfortable bed. Good restaurants within walking distance. Sad I didn't get to use the jet tub but bathroom was lovely. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

perfect base camp

Friendly efficient staff, charming cozy rooms, expansive continental breakfast - and a good location for exploring Portland. I will be back.

Location was perfect an there was parking with two lots. We stayed for a show at the state theater which is close by so it was convenient. We were recommended to stay there from some friends, we'll visit again.

Great stay

4,4 en diciembre 02, 2013

The place is beautiful lit up at night, the staff was very helpful, and the price was just what I was looking for. The only complaint I have wasn't the inn's fault, but we had a shared bathroom and whoever used it the morning of our check out had some obvious gastrointestinal issues. So maybe consider a private room/bath.

A fun "retro" experience with good old fashioned service

4,4 en diciembre 01, 2013

I recently stayed for the second time at the Inn at St John. Once again I was placed in the sweetest little room with great vintage decor and a nice feeling of privacy. The narrow hallways and winding staircases add to the old fashioned feeling, and you can easily imagine yourself in the time of railroad tycoons and oil barons. Customer service is alive and well among the staff, everyone we came into contact with was friendly and helpful in a genuine way. The breakfast was very nice, enough to get us on our way -- I was thrilled to find gluten free cereal as well! The things that may make this inconvenient for some (steep staircases and off site parking) add to its charm in my opinion and I am thrilled to have such a lovely alternative to the chain/big box hotels. The place was wonderfully clean and it is quickly apparent that the maintenance staff takes its job seriously. I can't wait to go back and try out another unique room!

The Inn at St. John

4,0 en diciembre 01, 2013

Our stay was great. Everything about it was satisfactory or better except for the breakfast. They just had bagels, yogurt, juice, and things like that. We were hoping for something more than that but for the price I think it was a great deal.

Inn at St. John, Portland, Me

4,4 en diciembre 01, 2013

The Inn was great and we will stay there again. We thought the service was outstanding and the location is great. Rooms were well equipped with lots of good quality towels and linens. Nice to have the Keurig coffee maker and the decor was tasteful and charming. The only negative was that the mattress on our bed was uncomfortable.

romantic getaway

4,8 en diciembre 01, 2013

Stayed for weekend in first floor room with en suite bath including jacussi tub. Best experience of all time anywhere regardless of expense Plan to come back and try other first floor rooms. Minimal expectations for continental breakfast were far exceeded. Off season was a fabulous experience


3,6 en noviembre 30, 2013

Very cute! An adorable place with lots of character. I loved the decor and the staff were very friendly. Our first room (which was cute as a button) had some issues with the heater, so they upgraded us to a larger room. The larger room was very pretty and spacious, but smelled a bit like someone had been smoking - the only reason that I did not give it the full five stars. The reason I rated it lower for cleanliness is the ash-like stains on one of the pillowcases and bathmat, but otherwise, the place was quite clean. I didn't eat here, but it looked nice and I have to include a rating as part of this review. I think my favorite part was the building itself. It really is just incredibly cute - detailed wallpaper and carpet, warm lighting, delicate iron works, narrow stairs ans some odd angled ceilings. It has an inviting and European feel. It's about a 15 minute walk to the art and government area of town, and 30 minutes to the waterfront - a little long in the cold, but fine for summer weather. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

Great Value B&B

4,2 en noviembre 29, 2013

A very short, but enjoyable stay. Just passing thorugh on our way to Camden Maine, we thought we would stop in Portland, and were very pleasantly surprised byt the value and presentation of The Inn at St John. I would defintely stay there again.

Never disappointed by the Inn at St John

4,2 en noviembre 27, 2013

Clean, affordable, and hospitable - this is easily the best place to stay in the heart of Portland for the price.

Great Stay at the St. John!

5 en noviembre 26, 2013

I can't say enough good things about the St. John Inn in Portland. It was very quaint, brings me back to "old time" inns and reminds me of some of the B&B's we have stayed at in Europe. All the staff we encountered were very polite and helpful, the lobby was lovely, the continental breakfast consisted of nice fresh coissants, muffins, cereals, juices, fruits, delicious fresh coffee and a selection of teas. There was bottled water and other drinks available for guests throughout the day, and a computer and printer for guest use (there was wi-fi in the inn as well). Our room was very nicely decorated and the bed very comfortable. We chose a room with a private bath, but those on a budget can choose other kinds of accommodations from private baths across the hall or shared baths. We definitely plan to stay there again during our next trip to Portland. Note that, as said on the web page, there are no elevators and the stairs are pretty steep; however, there appear to be several rooms on the first level and help with bags upstairs if necessary - but it is steep if you have mobility issues.

Cosy hotel within walking distance of downtown Portland

4,8 en noviembre 26, 2013

I stayed two nights at the Inn during my recent visit to Portland, ME. The first night, I was in a single room, and the second night, in a twin (Queen and Double). The rooms were clean and cosy, and the twin room was very spacious. I have stayed in hotels in Europe with a quarter of the floor space for twice the price! The private hall baths for single rooms was a touch of genius, as it allows guests to have their own bathroom even if it is not ensuite. Also, the housekeeping staff appear to have black belts in origami, and the first thing that struck me was the care taken into folding the towels and loo rolls into decorative patterns. I felt almost guilty to use anything in there! I also love the fact that they have a a small but comfortable lobby with free coffee, tea, water and cookies, to make waiting a pretty pleasant experience.

Wonderful Place

4,6 en noviembre 25, 2013

The Inn at St. John was a lovely place to stay. The decor is charming and the proprietor was friendly and helpful. The bus stops right across the street. We has a wonderful time.

Inn at St John

5 en noviembre 25, 2013

This was a lovely little find in the heart of Portland and is like stepping into the past. The entire Inn is reminiscent of the Victorian era and the staff was more than friendly and helpful. There was no dining at the facility but the above review criteria does not allow for an opt out so I stated that dining was outstanding because if they had it, I'm sure it would be wonderful!

A much needed night of sleep.

Cozy and affordable!

The Inn at St. John was a pleasant (and affordable) surprise! Nestled in the west end of Portland, the inn was surprisingly quiet! The staff was friendly and helpful, the continental breakfast has all the basics you need, and the rooms have exposed brick that give you that old world charm. We really enjoyed our stay and will definately be back!

Lovely and best option in the city!

4,2 en noviembre 21, 2013

The room was the perfect size although the heat wasn't working too well. A lovely breakfast spread was provided which is always a plus too. Great location! The best part was that the maintenance staff helped us change our flat tire.

Little worn, but no complaints considering the amount paid. If you have a car, getting to downtown is a breeze, but not sure if walking would be safe.

Great Stay!!

5 en noviembre 19, 2013

A wonderful Inn

Great deal!

4,4 en noviembre 17, 2013

I found the place by looking at multiple reviews about places to stay in Portland. People were right : the Inn at St John is an extraordinary good deal. The place is a bit far from the center, but there's plenty of parking in the Old Port, so nothing to worry about. We rented a simple room with a double bed and a bathroom in the hallway. Even if the room was small, it was really cozy and well decorated. The bathroom in the hall wasn't a problem for us.Everything was very clean, nothing to complaint about. The breakfast is one of the best continental breakfast I've ever had! Bagels, muffins, fresh fruits, coffee, yogourt, croissants... a lot more than the usual tiny breakfast they give you in some hotels. We were really impressed by the courteous service and the cleanliness of the place. I really recommend the Inn at St John!

One Night Stay

Stayed in a room with private hall bath with my dog for one night while moving to the area. Everyone was so friendly to both of us!

Wonderful stay

4,6 en noviembre 14, 2013

Even though we had one of the smaller rooms at the inn, our stay was wonderful. The room was well appointed, clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly and happy to speak at length with us regarding our questions about Portland. Overall a very nice experience that we will repeat in the future! Kathy Porter and David Hoyt

Great stay

4,8 en noviembre 14, 2013

The personal desk and cleaning staff were friendly and helpful. It was very clean and lovely Inn.

Classic Portland

3,6 en noviembre 11, 2013

This is the second time we stayed at The Inn at St. John. We have two big dogs, so we have to include them in the search. Our rooms were comfy and very clean. The desk staff is very accommodating and the cleaning staff takes extra care. The price is reasonable. When we stayed there 2 years ago, the area seemed to be a bit "sketchy," and it has improved a bit. If they could only rid themselves of the grocery store next store I believe the Inn would show much better. All in all, we will go back; we love Portland!

Quirky, charming & a great place to stay

4,2 en noviembre 11, 2013

My wife and I spent two pleasant nights at the Inn in October 2013 and we'd definitely stay there again should our travels take us back to Portland. The Inn at St. John occupies a building that is old but very well-maintained. The staff members were friendly and helpful, our room was clean, comfortable and came with conveniences such as a coffee maker, mini-fridge, iron & ironing board. The wifi also worked very well in our room. While not right downtown, you're only a 20-25 minute walk away, with several restaurants & coffee shops along the way, should you need to take a break. This place is not for everyone. If you like the typical motel/hotel room experience that you get with Holiday Inn, Motel 6 et. al. you probably won't like the quirky layout, separate/shared bathrooms, and the lack of an elevator to get to the upper floors and so on. That said, if you're looking for a comfortable place to stay that's a little out of the ordinary, I'd encourage you to try the Inn at St. John.

old world feel

We LOVED our stay at the Inn at St. John! While there we walked to many local establishments (shopping, eating, even the Maine Brewer's Festival 20th Anniv!!! The room was very, very historic, quaint, well appointed, with a large, private bath. We enjoyed our stay very much! Good breakfast spread, evening cookies, and coffee at all times available in the lobby.

Great choice in Portland Maine

4,0 en noviembre 09, 2013

The Inn at St. John offers hotel-style conveniences (private baths, wireless internet and a computer available in lobby, cable TV, mini-frig, dryers, coffeemakers in room) with the charm of a B&B. Coffee and cookies were available in the lobby when I arrived for check-in. Good choices for continental breakfast, with ample hours and trays for in-room dining. Staff was helpful, and alert to needs (I was using the computer keyboard awkwardly on the desktop, and a staff member noticed and came over to show me how to work the pull-out tray. Would definitely stay here again! The only negative: I do not like the coffee they serve, but this is surely a matter of taste, so it may be great for someone else!

Best Hotel value in Portland

4,6 en noviembre 08, 2013

The Inn at Saint John is without a dobt the best hotel bargain in Portland. The rooms are pleasant and well kept and the prices are far less than any of the other major hotels. THe rooms aren't particularly big or fancy, but they are comfortable and get the job done.

A Great Stay! Highly Recommend Inn at St. John!

4,6 en noviembre 06, 2013

I had a great stay at the Inn. Beautiful room and wonderful customer service. I will definitely include the Inn at St. John in any future overnight trips to Portland.

Fantastic value

4,2 en noviembre 06, 2013

The Inn at St. John was perfect for my needs - a single night stay before an early morning flight. I chose an economy room knowing that the accommodations would be somewhat spartan, but everything was impeccably clean and in good working order. The location is great - safe, walkable, and a short, easy drive to the airport. Will definitely stay again if I am in Portland. So much better than an airport hotel.

Amazing place for the price!

terrific option with real character and a great welcome!

5 en noviembre 01, 2013

We loved our stay at the Inn at St John's! The place has far more character (in a positive way) than any standard hotel. The welcome on check-in was warm. Our top-floor room was up a pretty steep set of stairs, but it was a good way to feel less guilty about indulging in the cookies and milk made available each evening :-) We loved the cinnamon and the chocolate muffins for breakfast (among other options), the best I've had in a while. The room was very comfortable (only complaint - one bedside lamp wasn't working), and we appreciated the complimentary excellent bathrobes provided for trips to the shared hall bathroom. Had to wait to take a shower most mornings (at peak time around 7 a.m.) and you are sharing the bathroom with more other guests than at some European B&Bs we've visited, but usually didn't wait more than 5 or 10 minutes, and the shared bathroom was clean and fine - the bedroom has your own sink and mirror, which makes matters much easier. The Inn is about a 20 minute easy walk from downtown, a nice safe stroll. The Inn staff recommended the Dogfish Cafe next door for dinner, which turned out to have some really nice seafood. Would love to stay here again!

The Inn at St. John

4,8 en noviembre 01, 2013

This was a lovely establishment. The continental breakfast was definitely more than we expected because there is no restaurant. The staff was super helpful in teaching us how to use the bus system. Because it is located about 4 miles from the Old Port it was a great value. We will stay there again.

Great place, great value.

I always stay here when I'm in Portland. I love it.

Cozy Inn, great value

4,2 en octubre 31, 2013

I stayed at The Inn at St. John for a night while visiting Portland for a dental school interview. After spending over an hour trying to find the best hotel value-wise, I decided to try this place. It had great reviews, which were all correct. It's right in the city within walking distance to restaurants, I just wish I'd had more time to explore. The room was a quiet, European style room, on the first floor near the front desk, which was staffed by very friendly people. Coffee & tea 24/7, and free breakfast. If you're looking for a nice hotel other than a chain, give this place a shot. I'd stay here again for sure.

I would do it again!!!

Nice place

3,4 en octubre 25, 2013

This is a very old Inn and has the type of charm expected from a 100 year plus Inn. The staff is friendly and helpful. I will say, if your on the upper floors, getting your luggage up to your room is a challenge.

European surprise

3,8 en octubre 23, 2013

When traveling thru Portland ME, happened upon Inn at St Johns website. Gave it a try and was very happy that I did. Service was outstanding, my room was very comfrotable with a private bath. European style isn't for everyone, but I would recomend this inn to anyone.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Inn at St. John's. I love this place! Staff are so professional in their immediate response to any request. They even stock soymilk for my coffee! Beds are very comfortable, cleanliness is outstanding, I'm not used to such care of public accommodations.

First Time in Maine

3,2 en octubre 23, 2013

The Inn was very far from Old Port but conveniently located to the expressways. Rooms are a little out-dated but was sufficient for what I needed.

One night in Portland at the Inn at St. John

4,2 en octubre 22, 2013

As we were trying to find the location of our room we were not overwhelmed with the location & parking was tight but as soon as we walked into the lobby, we were greeted with such hospitality & genuinely nice people. You could tell that everyone there took pride in their lovely & quant establishment. The room was outstanding with a nice old feel, lots of wood & our room had a long brick wall that added to the tradition feel. Everything in the room was in place & spotless. On the morning of our departure there was a very simple continental breakfast with good coffee, breads, & fruits all in a very warm & welcoming environment. Unfortunately, we only had a day to stay here & for visiting Portland. The Inn at St. John is about a 5/10 minute taxi ride from the Old Port where there are lots of restaurants, bars & other places to spend your evenings & nights. We will definitely be back the next time we are in the area. Absolutely loved the Inn at St. John & loved Portland ME.

Nice place to stay

4,2 en octubre 21, 2013

We stayed here while doing the Maine Marathon. They supplied a very early breakfast for runners and allowed late check-out or at least a place to shower and store luggage after checking out. Would do it again.

Great location, comfortable and cozy

5 en octubre 20, 2013

We were greeted by staff that made us feel like good friends. The room was clean and comfortable, and we loved the European and historical ambiance of the Inn. This will definitely be where we stay in Portland, Maine.

2 nights in a single with shared bath

3,6 en octubre 18, 2013

I spent 2 nights at St. John's and had a wonderful time! The front desk staff were extremely helpful in suggesting places to eat and things to visit and truly a joy to talk with. I was in a single room with a bathroom shared with another single room. The bathroom definitely could use some updating and some color, but it was clean and I had no schedule conflicts with the other guest. My room was fine for me as a budget traveler. It is mismatched and needs an uplift as you can easily see where they built a wall to block access to the bathroom, but I didn't spend too much time in the room other than sleeping so I didn't mind the extra character and charm. Also, the cleaning staff is super sweet. Be sure to chat with them if you get a chance. Breakfast was typical (muffins, bagels, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, tea, coffee, juice, cereal) and I didn't have an issue finding seating at 8am. It is a fairly tight space though. As a single female traveler, walking at night from Old Port to the Inn was alright. I never felt uncomfortable, but I was aware of my surroundings and didn't stay out too late.

Great place to stay

3,6 en octubre 17, 2013

Charming Inn. Second stay there. Highly recommended.

Great location and helpful staff

4,4 en octubre 17, 2013

The staff was super helpful. They gave great information on where to go and everything panned out. The location was pretty good. We walked everywhere from the hotel. The cleaning service was great! I have never had my room so organized and cleaned like this before.

Clean B and B

2,6 en octubre 17, 2013

We stayed here on our 1 night visit to Portland. The B and B was clean, the bed comfortable, but the dining area for breakfast was cramped and did not appear to have enough tables for guests. There was limited choice for breakfast. It was further out of town than we had expected.

Charming Place

3,4 en octubre 16, 2013

Was very pleased with our stay here. Great staff. Very friendly and attentive to the clients' needs. Great location, just a little over 1 mile walk to downtown Portland. Extra perk...FREE parking!!! Would definitley stay here again.

Well situated

Le Inn at St John is conviniently situated, near the Art district, with a lot of good restaurants near by.

FIRST Time but not LAST !!!

5 en octubre 14, 2013

Inn was impeccable, décor matched the Inn perfectly. Beds were comfortable and sheets weren't scratchy like other Hotel chains. Another plus was it was quiet no noise above and Inn was full. The Heating and Cooling unit worked great. we visited the Port and went to a Play at Portland Stage location couldn't been better. We plan on coming back and will definitely stay at the "Inn at St. John" again

Enjoyable stay

3,2 en octubre 13, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed here during a weekend trip to Portland. We enjoyed our stay overall; the room was clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly (even helping us call a quick cab on our way to dinner downtown). I think if we stayed here again we would stay in a room with a private bathroom, sharing one with another room was more awkward than I originally thought. The breakfast was also a bit disappointing. So, we had an enjoyable experience overall.

Great Accommodation

5 en octubre 13, 2013

Beautiful inn, centrally located, ample parking.

nice place - well kept and quirky

3,8 en octubre 13, 2013

Friends from Portland warned that this place was "a dump"; boy were they misinformed! This is a really well maintained property, just off the beatten path at a very affordable price. If you arr looking for a lower priced place with some unique charm, this is the place for you!

Cozy, charming

4,6 en octubre 11, 2013

The staff was very accommodating and helped us move to a different/bigger room when my girlfriend decided to come at the last minute. Rooms were well appointed and decorated with an old school New England feel.

Very satisfied visitor!

5 en octubre 10, 2013

Absolutely wonderful! Very kind, helpful & efficient staff. Great location and beautiful hotel! Great value as well. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area! Thank you so much for a great stay!

Far better than a chain hotel

4,2 en octubre 10, 2013

Lovely amenities, friendly staff, and unique rooms. The place had the feel of a small European hotel with a continental breakfast that included soy milk for cereal (in addition to cow') and nicely ripe fruit, bottled water, real muffins and croissants, and whole grain breads. Guests represented a range of ethnicity and age. Very nice change from chain hotels.

Recent stay at the Inn

4,6 en octubre 10, 2013

The room, the staff, and the location of this Inn are excellent. The staff made us feel like we were at home. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, and Old Port is only a 20 minute walk through this beautiful city.


4,6 en octubre 10, 2013

We found this little gem online and it was excellent. Very nice and cozy. The staff was very polite, nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place and come back myself

Great place to stay in Portland, Maine

Couple Gets Away to Portland on a Budget!

4,0 en octubre 08, 2013

Charming old fashion Hotel in eclectic neighborhood fit the bill for our couples get away (from the kids) to explore Portland. If you are not into the run of the mill hotel chains, like the ambiance of an old Inn and are on a budget - this is a good place to stay! About 3/4 of mile from the artist district and a mile from Old Port this was a good home base to explore the city! At first the neighborhood looked a little sketchy - but it felt safe, real and friendly. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly and helpful We found the Inn at Saint John to be a good value!

For budget minded traveler

3,4 en octubre 07, 2013

The lobby is charming and the cafe/breakfast area was, too. The staff was excellent. The continental breakfast was nice and tea, coffee, and cookies available all day was nice. The stairs are steep, but they carried my bag up the one floor so that was great. The in room wi-fi was good. Those are the pluses. I had a small, twin bed room with private hall bath. Both were very small and I was expecting that, but I wouldn't describe them as "charming" and " with character", I would describe them as "very tired" and "worn". Although the rooms on my floor had "non-smoking" signs, the air smelled very stale, like an old tavern type smell. The wallpaper in my room was, I would guess, 60+ years old. I was only there one night and wasn't in the room much. I wouldn't stay again, as I found the room depressing.

A great place to stay

4,4 en octubre 07, 2013

We were up a few flights. Didn't bother me, but elderly or anyone with respiratory problems should let them know when you book. The room was beautiful, like a Dowton Abbey room. But bathroom was modern & clean. Room was absolutely quiet. Even with traffic outside, still very quiet. Staff was fantastic, helpful & super friendly. We did not eat there in the AM, because Hot Suppa is right close by. But it was a cute set up with just enough food if you wanted to eat quick & hit the road. Also, downtown Portland is close, almost walking distance if you like a good walk. Highly Recommend!

Always a great experience

4,0 en octubre 07, 2013

I love staying at the St. John when I am in Portland overnight. The rooms are cozy and uniquely decorated. It's within easy walking distance of downtown and the Old Port. You kind of have to avoid the breakfast rush right around 8 a.m. but that's usually easy. It is great value for such a wonderful, I'll say charming, hotel experience. Yes, European in feel it really is!

quaint and lovely Inn!

4,6 en octubre 02, 2013

My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights at The Inn at St. John. The room we had was very nicely decorated. The service we received from the staff at the Inn was wonderful. We both would highly recommend the Inn for anyone wanting to stay at a location that is not like any of the usual suspects when it comes to hotel accommodations. If we ever go back to Portland, Maine I can't imagine we would want to stay anywhere else!

Charming Inn with cheerful service!

4,0 en octubre 01, 2013

The Inn was very charming and seemed to be a good value for Portland. We were still within walking distance of the Old Port area, which was a bonus. The rooms were clean, and nicely furnished for the period of the Inn. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again!

Short visit

I was only there for one night, but everything was great. Thanks

Quaint Inn

4,0 en septiembre 27, 2013

The Inn presents itself well. Staff was pleasant and welcoming. There were cookies with lemonade and ice tea in the afternoon. Breakfast was very satisfying and there is coffee and hot chocolate 24 hrs in the lobby. Parking is free but with tight spaces. There is overflow parking (not sure where). Stairs are fairly steep. The Inn is within walking distance to Old Port but it's still a little bit of a hike and cuts through an area that seems to be in the process of gentrification. Free WIFI is always a plus.

Great value, lots of character, great location, and awesome service!

4,4 en septiembre 27, 2013

Thrilled with our stay...the service was great; delicious cookies available throughout the day (bonus!); great location with lots of character in the hotel and each room. Highly recommend The Inn at St. John's!

The Inn at St. John

Inn at St John

3,0 en septiembre 25, 2013

Location gives visitors a different perspective of the Portland, ME experience. Located close to Maine Medical with easy access off the highway. About 1 1/2 miles from the Old Port but easily walkable.

What a gem!

3,8 en septiembre 24, 2013

This place was great! In town for a quick overnight on business and needed a place to stay that wasn't $200 and up, as were all of the big hotels in town. It's a little out of the way, not walking distance to the port, but what a sweet little hotel. I was on the top floor and was glad I ididn't have a lot of bags. Steep stairs and no elevator. Room was small and clean with a single bed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was what we've all come to expect from "continental." Not much, but it'll get you going. Coffee was EXCELLENT and plentiful. Will definitely stay again!

My honeymoon at the ISJ

3,2 en septiembre 23, 2013

We spent 2 days there, and it was nice. It was very clean (the smell of bleach was overpowering on the sheets and I had to wash all my clothes twice, a little much) The room was quaint. The furniture was nice. The bed was fairly comfortable. It was odd to have to ring a bell to get in at night. But overall, it was a great 2 days. I have stayed there before and would again. One thing....I think the fact that the building is NOT handicapped accessible is huge problem. Sometimes just because the law allows you to not have access modification does not mean that is what should be. Not even a ramp in the back. Not ok.

Pleasantly surprised

3,8 en septiembre 22, 2013

A friend of mine was visiting Portland, and I decided to make the trip up to spend a day with him. He was staying at the Inn at St, John, so I made plans to stay there as well. Since I only needed a room for one night, I made reservations for one with a twin bed and shared private bathroom. Upon arrival I was greeted by a warm receptionist crew, and I was most pleased to see my small but most adequate and charming room had all the amenities one would need to have a pleasant stay. The shared private bathroom proved to be no more inadequate than one's shared bathroom at home. It was not a worry at all. Throughout my brief stay every member of the staff was most congenial and genuinely hospitable. I would definitely stay at the Inn at St. John on any future visit to Portland, and I plan to recommend it to any of my family or friends who are planning to visit Portland.

A sense of comfort

3,4 en septiembre 22, 2013

I suppose that the Inn at St. John isn't called a "hotel" because they don't want guests to expect an elevator. But my room was decorated like one in a first-class hotel. It was clean; the bed was comfortable, and the wireless super-fast. No view--the room overlooked the parking lot--but the interior made up for that. Only real complaint: very ordinary pastries served at breakfast. Stick to cold cereal.

Love The Inn!

4,0 en septiembre 22, 2013

Walkable to Portland's city center . Very cute comfortable nice place with friendly staff.I was in the third floor and sharing a bathroom which had some mold. I know it happens but it was a little "oh Oh " moment. I will definitely be staying here in the near future!

Portland B&B

4,2 en septiembre 22, 2013

The staff was very friendly. There was free, off street parking around the back of the hotel. Our room was large and clean. Unfortunately we had a room on the second floor on the street side. The traffic was very disruptive to our sleep. Their website does explain that you will be carrying your luggage upstairs if you book on the upper floors. Also, the WiFi was not working, but they did explain this when we checked in. The free, continental breakfast was more than sufficient and the bakery items were fresh.

Amazing place to stay

5 en septiembre 21, 2013

Great breakfast, free upgrade, staff was great.

A pretty inn

4,4 en septiembre 20, 2013

The room was large but cosy. Out bathroom was in the corridor a few feet away and was very well maintained. We loved the ambience of the inn and the breakfast was very decent with bagels, cereal, juice and good coffee. Keep it up!

Overnight in Portland

4,4 en septiembre 20, 2013

I found the Inn at St. John after researching B & B offerings in Portland, and I was very happy with our experience. Clean, friendly and charming, the Inn is located within walking distance of multiple points of interest, and also close to major highways (but not too close so as to be loud.) We will definitely stay at the Inn again when visiting Portland. Thanks for the lovely stay!

Fantastic Staff

4,6 en septiembre 18, 2013

Staff was very helpful with maps, great and affordable dining suggestions and guidance to off-the-beaten-path shopping opportunities. They called the room every morning to make sure we had everything we needed and that we were satisfied. Without a doubt, the best service I have ever received at a hotel.

Can't Beat The Value

Comfortable stay at the Inn. Very clean, great exercise climbing to the 3rd floor. Staff very friendly. Everyone tries hard here and it shows!

Great value and the cleanliness was impeccable.

Good Value for Lodging in Portland

4,4 en septiembre 18, 2013

My daughter made this reservation when arranging for a short weekend visit to Portland. We stayed in an upper floor room with a private bath. While a little outside the center of town, the inn was extremely comfortable and clean, well appointed (hint: time to replace those robes - a nice touch however), and a short drive to upper Congress Street, Commercial Street, and Old Port. Walkers should avoid walking up Congress to town (a bit seedy) and go the lower route behind the hotel along the park - or drive as we did. An added bonus is the hotel is a very few minutes walk to Hadlock Field, home of the Portland Sea Dogs, as Double A franchise of the Red Sox (alas, season had ended). The staff at the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful. All in all, I would stay here again. Good alternative to the the pricier in-town hotels.

Quick and Easy

3,2 en septiembre 17, 2013

Served me well for a quick overnight trip. A bit of a walk to downtown Portland, but not terrible. Rooms were nice and clean, though small. Service was great.

A very pleasant stay

4,0 en septiembre 16, 2013

We spent five nights in room 106 on the first floor just off the main lobby, and were very happy with the accommodations. The bed was more comfortable than most, and we were surprised at how quiet the room was -- always a plus. It is an old building, and allowances must be made for the quirky layout of the room and bathroom, which is down a few steps in a separate space. While far from spacious, we didn't feel cramped in these quarters. Breakfast was a fairly typical continental spread with a nice selection of muffins, bagels, cereal, fruit, etc. Complimentary coffee, tea, and cookies are available throughout the day. No complaints with the food. There is adequate free parking behind the hotel, but the spaces are tiny. Squeezing in a rental compact SUV was a challenge, but there is additional free parking in the lot of an adjacent restaurant with more room. The Inn is midway between the airport and the activity down at the waterfront, which makes it convenient for travel, but you will be driving and hunting for parking when you want to explore the heart of the city. It's an OK trade off if you want a quieter night's sleep away from all the commotion along the wharfs. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the St. John, and would be glad to stay there again on our next visit to Portland.

Excellent hotel I loved it

5 en septiembre 16, 2013

I loved the hotel and I will surely come back

Impromptu Stay

4,4 en septiembre 15, 2013

I stopped through after attending a wedding nearby the day before. The Inn was incredibly welcoming, and a room with a shared bathroom was reasonably priced. I picked up takeout Thai next door - it truly is the best in Portland. Rooms are comfortable though not all have the same level of personality as the welcome desk downstairs. Don't look for the big hearty B&B style breakfast; it's more similar to what you'd find at a chain hotel, but there is a range of bagels, breads and other items in the morning.

Happy Customer

4,2 en septiembre 13, 2013

Needed place to stay overnight ~ arriving by 9 p.m. and departing for a 6 a.m. flight the next morning Question about "dining" doesn't really apply, but the goodies provided for cold breakfast were already out and available at 4:30 a.m. before I had to go to the airport. This was much appreciated. Great bargain and clean room where I have stayed on three previous occasions and will again when I'm back in Portland.

Great digs

3,8 en septiembre 13, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed our two stays at this inn. It is located south of downtown Portland in a relatively quiet area. Even though our rooms were near the street entrance, there was little disturbance by passing traffic. The only drawback was a rather spartan "continental" breakfast - the usual bagel, cereal, etc - no protein, except for the small amount that may be in the "energy" bar provided among the breakfast choices.

Helpful and kind staff

3,8 en septiembre 11, 2013

This hotel is a bit of a walk from all attractions, but for us that was fine as we are walkers. If you are not a walker, there seemed to be parking in town.

We stayed in a beautiful king bed room with a private bath on the first floor. Everything was well kept and clean. The room included toiletries, a hair dryer,refrigerator and Kuerig coffee maker.

Reasonable, Efficient and Nice

3,6 en septiembre 02, 2013

I only had two minor disappointments. The shower was way too small for my taste. Given their small size, it would have been better to have a hosed/handheld showerhead to access the rinsing of the nether regions as there was no way to get a thorough rinse with the fixed head. Nice showerhead though. Good pressure, temperature, and flow patterns. The other was the continental breakfast. I really didn't bother with eating it during my stay. One taste of the low quality orange juice and seeing the plastic appearance of the croissants, I saw no reason to have my breakfast there. There was a nice coffeeshop within walking distance to provide a good breakfast. With that being said, I still enjoyed my stay there. The place was really clean and quaint (tad small room, but adequate since I never spent my day in the room). The towels were the best towels I've experienced in a hotel/b&b. Very soft and absorbent. I want them for my home. Cleaning service was through and did an excellent job each day. It was quiet and relaxing. I would stay there again, but please, get hose extensions for the showerheads to compensate for their small size.

We spent a couple of comfortable days here in this cozy bed and breakfast. We had a spacious room decorated in Victorian style, and very clean.

Good Price

3,4 en septiembre 02, 2013

Stayed for a few nights in August 2013. The price was well below hotels in the downtown area. It is a bit of a walk to restaurants and activities (30-40 minutes) but its a pleasant and safe walk. We thought it was definitely a good bargain. Everyone at the hotel was very welcoming and helpful.

Good experience

Quiet, sweet, funky European-style hotel. Clean, comfortable room. Desk staff very pleasant. Not in the prettiest part of town.

Delightful place to stay!

I was very lucky to be able to find a room at a B&B in downtown Portland as I waited to book until early July for my usual visit up there. I booked online then realized I wanted to make sure I had a specific room. I couldn't have been treated better when I called. The staff was absolutely delightful to deal with and made my stay, while only one night, very enjoyable. I loved the room (1A) and would definitely stay here again. Shannon Williams, New Orleans

Great place!

4,2 en septiembre 01, 2013

The Inn at St. John was a great place to stay while visiting Portland! We were very impressed with the rooms and the size of the place! The Inn is beautiful and it gives you the opportunity to take a step back in time. It has been well maintained for many years. The service was prompt and all of the staff were very friendly. We were impressed that cold juices, coffee, tea and cookies were available for our enjoyment at any time. This provided a nice touch after a long day of driving or walking around Portland. We would definitely recommend the Inn at St. John if you are in the Portland area.

Lovely place

3,8 en agosto 31, 2013

Really nice little inn with good service and comfortable, clean, elegant rooms. The neighbourhood is surprisingly a bit dingy and you will need to take a taxi/ bus into the Old Port or centre if you're not driving, but the inn itself is lovely and the staff are helpful.

Hidden Gem

This is a quaint inn within walking distance to downtown Portland. My room was neat and clean and so was the in-room bathroom. Not all rooms come with an in-room bathroom, but other than that I was very pleased with my stay here. I had an issue with the water temperature in the shower, which was quickly fixed. The staff at the front desk was very accommodating when I requested a late check-out. I would definitely stay here again!

Great Stay!

4,4 en agosto 28, 2013

My best friend and I went on a road trip to New England and we wanted a bed and breakfast experience, and we got a GREAT one with the Inn at St. John. It must be something about Maine, but the staff was incredibly friendly, kind and helpful with whatever we needed. Whether it was asking if our rooms were okay (as opposed to commercial hotels that just give you your keys and what you get is what you get), to giving us a GREAT restaurant recommendation, to even giving us wine glasses when we asked for them, they were wonderful. The room was clean, the bathroom- we had a room with a private hall bath- was clean and overall it was a wonderful stay. It's not too far from "downtown", so it is easily accessible if you don't mind walking a bit. Only thing that might be better is the breakfast aspect of the "Bed & Breakfast", it was a normal continental breakfast, but since on the website it says that's what it is, you can't expect too much. Overall, I recommend coming here. It was a great stay!

spring for the bathroom

3,4 en agosto 28, 2013

Great Inn, just would say if you have the extra dough for the bathroom, it will be easier then to share. Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, would stay there again ,but probably not share a bath because it seemed everytime we went to use it , it was occupied, but other than that A+ place.

I stayed at the Inn for one night with my wife and daughter and we found it to be a very nice place. The rooms are not very large but they're cozy and adequately sized. For a little less we opted to share a bathroom in the hallway with other guests. This turned out to be fine. The bathroom was very clean and always available when we needed it. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was great with many options to choose from in a nice cafe-style dining area. The only thing that I should warn you about are the stairs if you happen to get a room on the top floor. There's no other way up, so keep this in mind! Overall we found our stay to be very pleasant and we believe the cost was a relatively good deal.

Friendly, comfortable, clean, affordable small Hotel

I was very happy with my four day stay at the Inn at St John. I had screwed up my reservation, but the staff was able to accommodate our needs, despite it being a very busy time for them.

More of a hotel than a b and b in that it is largish, there are no real hosts, and the continental breakfast, laid out in a cramped, narrow space, is adequate to get you on with your day, but nothing special. Very clean, desk staff are pleasant. Bed is comfortable.Some parking in rear. Stairs are steep, so avoid if you have any mobility issues.I like this inn, and would stay here again.

Great place, nice accessible location and excellent service.

Wonderful stay

We had a great time in Portland and the staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. They are great with children! Our daughter even had her own bed made up to match ours last mintute. We will be back!

All good.

3,8 en agosto 20, 2013

Very satisfactory stay. Portland desperately needs new hotels (four are in construction now) to lower rates within the City, though. Hard to find a good value.

good location, charm

Old school and very helpful

a unique stay

3,8 en agosto 18, 2013

We stayed in a double room with a private bath. It is a quaint, unique hotel. Be prepared for stairs!

Clean & Pet Friendly

Really a pleasant place to stay. An older building in the city, but clean with professional staff. Overall very positive experience

Good Stay

I was in town for 12 nights. The staff met all my needs in moving my room to accommodate the long stay. Everything was clean and quiet.

Inn at St. John-wonderfu!

4,0 en agosto 13, 2013

If you hate 'budget bunkers', but don't want to spend a lot of money on a hotel room for amenities you don't care about, then you gravitate toward B&Bs, and this is wonderful. It's an old inn, nicely maintained. It's not handicap accessible, and odds are that you'll have to climb stairs. We were up one flight and had a private bathroom across the hall, the inn kindly provided robes. Service was helpful and friendly. Not a full breakfast-croissant and muffins (I passed, I'm a protien gal!) but coffee and tea were nice. I'll definately be back.

Great value & convenient location

4,0 en agosto 12, 2013

We always stay at the Inn at St John when we visit Portland. The service is very good - they gladly store our bikes in their basement, offer cookies and juice or iced tea in the afternoon, and a good selection of food items for the continental breakfast. Easily accessible from I295, and offers easy access to downtown museums and shopping, Portland Trails trail system, etc.

Charming and Great Owners

3,8 en agosto 12, 2013

Overall it is a really nice and great place to stay. There is noise from the car on the street and trains come through, but it dies down after 11 pm. The sheets for the sofa bed were awful and had holes all over them and should have never been placed on the mattress. Hopefully they will be replaced with new ones for the next guest. Breakfast was excellent and the owners were very nice.

What a beautiful place and everyone was so nice and helpful! I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Best deal in town

4,0 en agosto 11, 2013

I stayed in 5C, one of the smallest rooms available. Cost including tax was just under $100. It had a twin bed, sink, microwave, TV, free toiletries, 4 towels, and AC. The room was very clean and while small, it did not feel claustrophobic. The bed itself was slightly springy, but I slept well the night I was there with no ill effects a day or two later. Continental Breakfast was better than I expected and included: bagels, muffins, fresh fruit, tea, coffee, and 2 kinds of juice. Staff was very friendly and professional.

Very nice

4,8 en agosto 10, 2013

I was more than happy with everything but the breakfast area is a wee bit small so get up early and beat the rush : )

Inn at St. John in Portland, ME

4,2 en agosto 10, 2013

The stay for the night was what I needed. The room was clean and the service was excellent. It was centrally located, so I could walk to the nearby shops in the Art District and hear great music at a local restaurant.

A nice & cozy hotel

4,0 en agosto 10, 2013

A perfect place to stay for a week-end in Portland. An easy walk to most spot in town like old port and shopping streets. No elavator but only three floors. Good basic breakfast. Best bang for your buck. Will come back for sure.

Comfortable with lots of character

3,8 en agosto 09, 2013

Comfortable, quiet respite from chain hotels and motels. The third floor rooms are small, clean, and be ready for a climb up the stairs. Enjoyed my stay and I would come back.

This is a very quaint inn, with nice rooms and a calm atmosphere. I was pleased with the overall cleanliness of the room and with the size of the room and bath. The breakfast in the morning is decent, not much hot food, but lots of options otherwise. The staff were courteous and friendly. We enjoyed our stay.

Loved it!

I was completely happy with my stay at this inn. I have no complaints except perhaps one. The cookies they offer in the afternoon wrecked my diet!

4,4 en agosto 06, 2013

Our stay at the Inn was wonderful. We had a room with a king bed on the second floor overlooking the street. Very spacious room with very comfortable bed. I thought it would be noisy since it was on overlooking the street, but it was very quiet. Nice to have a small refrigerator to store left over food from dinner. The breakfast was better than I expected. Good choice of breakfast items, yogurt and bottled water to take for a beach snack. Plenty of coffee and juice. In the afternoon the juice dispenser had lemonade and ice tea. Neighborhood is nice. Easy to get downtown and onto 295. Lobby has computer for guest use and they played quiet classical music instaed of top 40 radio (very appreciated) I will stay here again when I am in Portland. Very comfortalbe, quiet, convenient Inn. A keeper!

Good for its price

I was able to make a late reservation when much else was closed or much too expensive. The unattached bathroom wasn't a problem. The stairs are awkward and there's no elevator, but patience and care get one there. The staff was freindly and flexible, like my spelling is. Breakfast had croissants and coffee and OJ, which was good enough for me, and some other stuff for others.

Inn at St John

4,6 en agosto 01, 2013

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by this historic inn in downtown Portland, Maine. The room was nicely sized and even though the bathroom was small, it was set up well. Everything was clean! The continental breakfast in the morning had plenty of variety for a small inn and wasn't all prepackaged food. I would also like to mention how kind the staff were...they helped us with our baggage, called us when they discovered we had left a couple of personal items in our room, and offered to ship them to our home. Overall it was a very pleasant experience!

Home away from home

5 en agosto 01, 2013

My fiancé and I have been coming to the inn at St. John for nearly four years now. We are regulars at the inn and the staff recognizes this by greeting us with open arms. My fiancé loves the fresh cookies that are left out in the lobby all day for our consumption. Everything is absolutely delightful, and we recommend this inn over any corporate stuck up hotel. Come to where you can relax and feel completely at ease at the inn at St. John.

Expensive, but a great place to stay

4,2 en julio 31, 2013

Room was small but very nice. Cleaning was excellent and they have a free breakfast every morning. Definitely recommend a room with a private bathroom, they are more expensive but its worth it

Colonial Charm

3,2 en julio 31, 2013

We chose a room that had a private bath in the hallway. Our room was large and had lots of colonial charm. It was nice to have a private bathroom. The continental breakfast had several different options but no hot food like eggs, sausage, etc. The price was great. Would stay here again.

I loved this place. Not the typical big box stay. Very homey and warm, nice atmosphere. The stairs are a bit steep so be careful if you have knee problems. Very nice helpful staff. The dining rating is really not applicable there is not a facility. There is a small breakfast bar only.

We really enjoyed our stay

Inn at St. Johns in Portland, Maine

4,6 en julio 28, 2013

My wife and I needed a place to stay that was right on Congress in Portland, Maine, and located near the airport. All the name brand facilities were priced extremely high, and we were lucky enough to find the Inn at St. Johns with an open room. Extremely pleasant and accommodating, the staff bent over backwards to ensure that we had everything we needed. Upon arrival at around midnight (airline problems), we had been upgraded to an amazing room which helped mitigate the long day of delays, cancellations, and changes. I would not hesitate to recommend this quaint bed and breakfast to anyone.

Nice place to stay

3,4 en julio 27, 2013

Minimalist, retro-looking and rather cool hotel with a nifty restaurant up the street and many more within a 10 minute drive or cab ride. Also about $30 cheaper than the chain hotel I stayed in on the previous Saturday night in Portland, Maine. I would stay there again.

Solid Value - Friendly Service

4,2 en julio 25, 2013

Room was small, but also nice and neat. The place is one-of-a-kind - has a very European feel. Desk staff is super friendly. Free cookies and bottled water is a major plus.

Above the usual

4,4 en julio 25, 2013

There are 44 stairs to 3rd floor, but room is lovely, and very quiet. We heard no neighbors at any time, and traffic noise was minor. Breakfast is "continental" but included muffins, croissants, yogurt, cold cereal, some fresh fruit, and cereal bars. Dining space limited, so plan to go early if you want a table. Nice touches like terry robes and free newspapers put this hotel above the usual chain.

Beautiful Victorian Inn. Loved the old world charm with the modern day facilities..

4,6 en julio 25, 2013

Lovely spacious room: very friendly staff: quiet and a good place to set off and explore Portland.

Very comfortable overnight stay

3,4 en julio 25, 2013

Stayed at the inn for an overnight in Portland. Very accessible to Old Port without being in the middle. Close to the Seadogs if you like baseball. Laid back atmosphere. This was a return visit.

Short stay

3,6 en julio 25, 2013

I stayed one night at the Inn at St. John. The room was quite small but overall it was comfortable and served its purpose. Will I stay there again ? Maybe. Nothing great it was okay.

Overpriced for high season, but will definitely comeback.

3,2 en julio 25, 2013

The staff at front desk were super nice at our arrival. We even had the pleasure to enjoy free lemonade, greatly appreciated during hot weather. The room was perfect (10C), not too close to the stairs and close to the shared bathroom. Did not matter that the Inn was further from the downtown area, it allowed to walk and discover the neighborhood. Free parking was provided, which is always greatly appreciated. We unfortunately paid too much for it was worth since it was one of the busiest weekends of the year, however, we will definitely come back in the fall, where the same room is approximately 70$/night cheaper.

Very nice 4th of July visit

Great inn, but loud

We were pleasantly surprised by the big room with two queen beds that we got on the first floor. Loved the quirky historic ambience of the inn. Great price. By car, it's only a few minutes to downtown Boston. Staff was very helpful. The only negative thing was the noise from the street. Our room faced a big road so we heard the cars going by all night long.

2 Nights in Portland

3,4 en julio 20, 2013

This is an affordable option if you'd like to stay close to the Old Port. There are no elevators, which makes for some trouble if you have lots of luggage. The rooms are cozy and clean. I recommend getting one with a private bath that is inside the room. If you've had some drinks in town and don't want to hike back, a cab ride is about $10-15 with tip.

Lovely old building right on Congress Street

3,6 en julio 19, 2013

Lots of stairs to get to my room but the front desk staff was OUTSTANDING and practically ran up and down the stairs with my bags. Very impressive. The continental help yourself breakfast was so convenient to weird schedules like mine so it was perfect to grab and go or sit and eat. I had a separate bath down the hall from my room, which is not my favourite set up but at least it was spacious, clean and only for me, not shared. I did not run into anyone in the hallway, which of course was something I dreaded especially in the middle of the night.

Great value

3,8 en julio 18, 2013

We stayed in a room with a double and a shared bath and the price was great! The room was larger than I expected and very comfortable. I never encountered anyone else in the bathroom so that wasn't a problem at all. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was continental style but with lots of options. Easy 20 minute walk to downtown. $5 cab ride back from the waterfront. I would definitely stay again.

An outstanding Inn with a staff that is the best.

5 en julio 17, 2013

We had the best stay ever at the Inn, outstanding staff, our maid went above and beyond our expectations, beautiful room, superb breakfast choices. Would recommend anyone going to Portland, ME staying at the Inn at St. John.

Great Value

4,4 en julio 16, 2013

A very good value for Portland. Clean and comfortable rooms. Friendly and helpful folks at the front desk. We've stayed here many times before and surely will be back many times in the future.


4,6 en julio 16, 2013

I needed a spot near downtown Portland that would not cost a fortune! The room was small but clean and had everything we needed. The bathroom was right next to us and was kept very clean. Check in and out were vwey easy and the staff was pleasant and informative. I would stay here again if I visited Portland!

Great value for the price!

3,8 en julio 15, 2013

Our room was spacious, very clean comfortable and quiet. We loved our 1 night stay at the inn and we would definitely stay there again. The inn is about a 15-20 minutes walk to downtown.

We would happily stay with St. John again

3,4 en julio 15, 2013

Charming wrapped in history. Work related travel is a regularity for me, and though our time at St. John was pleasure not business, I have never interacted with a friendlier or more helpful staff. This form the get-go, and only it became all the more so when we brought a small concern to their attention, and they saw it corrected by the time we reurned from dinner out. We will stay with the Inn again.

Inn at St John - comfortable stay

3,2 en julio 15, 2013

Staff are very helpful, friendly and courteous. Rooms are cozy and quiet. Our room had a private bathroom which, although small, served its purpose. Would definitely choose a room with the bathroom in the room again as opposed to a private or shared bathroom in the hallway. Breakfast was relaxed with a decent selection of continental breakfast type choices and ran for several hours which gave us some flexibility and we didn't feel rushed.

A gem of a place

5 en julio 15, 2013

Stayed one night and found the entire experience to be delightful. The room was perfect: comfortable and clean with excellent facilities. The neighborhood, which is a bit run down but not dangerous, is not in the least indicative if this wonderful place. I have stayed at a number of places in Portland, and have been in the habit of trying new places each time, but I will definitely return to the Inn at St. John.

We stay here automatically whenever we are in Portland. It's a cool place and a great value, but the cookies are the key.

Amazing Service

4,4 en julio 11, 2013

I ended up having a situation where I was stuck in Portland way past the check out time. The staff was more than accommodating, and essentially allowed me to camp out in the front lounge for as long as I needed. A very lovely gesture in a situation that could have been stressful for me.

Very nice

3,8 en julio 11, 2013

Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful, the building is beautiful, the rooms were gorgeous and clean. The only downside was the breakfast in the morning -- there's not a lot of room at all in the sitting/eating area and the food could have been better. (But it was free!) Overall a very nice stay and I would do it again!

wonderful and charming

4,8 en julio 11, 2013

this was my 3rd stay at the inn and as always it was great delighted to arrive and find we had been upgraded to a superior room on the first floor. the rooms are wonderful, the inn is so charming and the staff are friendly and accomidating. Beats the heck out of staying at a chain hotel. this Inn is always my choice when I need a room in Portland Thank you

Beautiful, as usual!

4,4 en julio 09, 2013

We always enjoy our stay at the Inn when we must be in Portland. It is the best location for anything to do with Maine Med and Mercy hospitals. Altho there is no dining at the Inn, the "Pizza Villa" across the street is an excellent choice to either pick up and have dinner in your room or sit at their pub style bar and dine in! Really fun place to watch a game with some locals!

Gem in Portland

Inn at St. John

The room was tiny: be warned that the full size bed takes up most of the room. We left our suitcases in the hall. The bathroom down the hall was just clean and everything worked. Housekeeping did not come to make the bed until after 3 pm. The location is convenient to the freeway. I had thought it was within walking distance of Portland's downtown area, but it is not. You will need a car to stay here. Parking is onsite and very handy. Front desk was helpful. Breakfast was more than adequate and included yogurts and pastries.

Excellent stay, nice free upgrade!

5 en julio 05, 2013

The folks at this inn were super friendly and nice. They upgraded our room to a really nice luxury room for free. You will not be able to beat the price in Portland and it is a very nice stay. Continental breakfast is decent and fresh cookies upon arrival!

awesome stay

3,8 en julio 04, 2013

We stayed 3 nights and had a wonderful time, despite the way it looks on the outside it was really a nice place to stay quiet, someone is always at the front desk and everyone on staff wants to help make your stay more enjoyable. The only reason for 1 star on the dining was because we didn't order room service. Close to downtown Portland (5min drive) as well as the beaches. Highly recommend staying here! We will be staying here again

Nice B&B, location is an issue.

3,4 en julio 03, 2013

It was a fine B&B: large room, firm mattress, clean, decently furnished and decorated. The bathroom was small and the toilet was situated such that, at 6'2", I couldn't sit straight on it because the vanity sink was too close. The location is an issue. While walkable to downtown, the neighborhoods you walk through are sketchy....not dangerous, but it doesn't make for a scenic, enjoyable walk.

Charming and clean; friendly staff

4,0 en julio 03, 2013

I stayed one night in a single room with a private bath; it was very neat and clean, charming, and comfortable. The Inn is about 15 minutes walk from a district that has lots of shops and restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful, the continental breakfast had an excellent selection. The weather was quite hot while I was there, and the air conditioner kept the room at a pleasant temperature. This hotel has no elevator, so factor that in if you have mobility issues or will be taking lots of luggage with you. I would certainly stay here again.

St. John's is a King of an inn

4,6 en julio 03, 2013

Located near the Sea Dogs stadium, but you can still easity walk to downtown. Great, hospitable inn, lovely rooms, pleasant continental breakfast, at more affordable prices than you would expect due to no elevator and not a stellar part of town, but certainly safe.

St. John's in June

3,2 en julio 02, 2013

Was a great location - far enough from the tourist center to be quiet and relaxing and close enough that you could be in the middle of the tourist center in a jiffy. Even though our room was facing busy Congress Street, it was very quiet! And we are picky when it comes to quiet. Very warm and cozy atmosphere. And the pizza place across the street was convenient, reasonable, yummy, and provided excellent service.

Perfect for location and wallet

4,8 en julio 02, 2013

A friend and I spent two nights at the Inn at St. John at the end of June. We thought it was a cozy, welcoming space. Our room was charming and both the room and the private hall bath were very clean. We asked for an extra blanket, which the front desk brought up right away. Breakfast was continental style and plentiful. The dining area is small but I think there are enough seats unless you hit it at 9:15 or so, when everyone is down there. The staff was very helpful. We were out late one evening and had to ring the doorbell when we got back but as we were promised, there was someone at the desk who let us in right away. We were also able to store our backpacks at the desk when we checked out but wanted to walk around a bit. The Inn is located about a 20 minute walk from the more touristy areas near the water but my friend and I (both women) felt safe walking around. We also walked there from the Portland Transportation Center, which also takes about 20 minutes. There is also a bus that goes from there to the Inn. We used the bus to go downtown; it stops a half block away, and is an easy $1.50 ride. A cab ride back from there on a night that it was raining cost $6.50 plus tip. All in all, it was great value for money (about $230 for two nights for a double bed, wifi, cable, a private hall bathroom, and breakfast).

great value!

4,2 en julio 02, 2013

a perfect place for my mon an me to stay while visiting my 84 year old aunt who lives in town! i did think that the rooms we reserved (it wasn't stated on the site) where going to be on the first floor (no stairs to climb!) i'm not sure my mom will be able to climb those stairs too much longer,

Such charm

4,2 en julio 01, 2013

Our room was charming, inviting and comfortable. Customer service was excellent. The staff bent over backward to make sure our stay was enjoyable and pleasant. I would definitely stay here again.

Best place you will find for such a value!!!

5 en julio 01, 2013

Kind and attentive staff who are always there to make your stay comfortable. It is a bit father away from old town but it's definetely worth the small commute. Plus you get to explore a bit more this way. They serve a small breakfast each day and always have refreshments and coffee all through the day. Will stay here again once I come back to Portland!

Wonderful Portland experience!

5 en julio 01, 2013

We decided on staying here due to the reviews and room pricing. Upon arrival, it is immediately apparent that the owners pride themselves on hotel appearance and cleanliness. We were given the room we expected, up a short flight of stairs and into a wonderfully kept room. The amenities were more than expected and the decor was great. Very bright and clean! The hotel is a short driving distance from the very busy waterfront area of town...nice to be able to escape that noise for a good night's sleep. Highly recommended - would stay here again!

Great place to stay!!!

5 en junio 30, 2013

We loved Inn at St. John. Next time we visit Portland we will stay here and stay more than one night.

We'd go back!!

4,0 en junio 29, 2013

Since being back from vacation for only a day we've already recommended the Inn at St John to several friends. It was an economical option that exceeded our expectations. The staff was beyond friendly and helpful. The room and private bath across the hall was all we needed knowing we were out and about all day and only needed simple accommodations. The robes were the perfect touch. Wish they were located a bit closer downtown but otherwise a great find!

Lots of character

4,6 en junio 28, 2013

We have been staying at the Inn at St. John for years. It is a funky old place that has been turned into a charming Inn. The neighborhood is a little rough, but there are plenty of cabs to get you into the old port. The Inn has become a staple to our Portland trips.

A valuable hidden secret

4,2 en junio 28, 2013

Hard to find a good room in the city of Portland at an affordable price. The inn is a bit far to walk to downtown Portland, but parking is easy, so drive. It reminded me of small European hotels - small rooms nicely furnished, rabbit warren halls, your own or shared bath in the hall. Cozy, comfortable, with plenty of amenities - wifi, phone, a small tv on cable, a table and chair. If you are looking for a modern, palatial, wide-screen palace, don't bother. If you are looking for old-world, Victorian charm, go to this inn. The one down-side - the continental breakfast was terrible - cheap breads and bagels that were sweet and crumbled, second-rate coffee, thin selection of boring teas. Needs work to add culinary charm to the really attractive ambiance. Staff is first-rate - friendly, helpful, and available.

Only one night!

3,6 en junio 27, 2013

We would have loved to stay longer in Portland and loved our stay at the Inn at St. John. It had all we required and more. If we ever get back we would make it a destination. Friends, from Daylesford, Australia

An artsy and unique hotel!

4,6 en junio 27, 2013

I was really happy with my stay. The location was about a 2 mile walk/drive to the harbor attractions, and around the corner from a baseball stadium. The concierge was extremely well informed, providing me with maps, directions, and cool places to visit in the city. The room was charming. It had a private bathroom a few doors down, spotlessly clean. There was private parking on premise. The lobby is very victorian in decor. On recommendation, i had a delicious thai dinner, at a restaurant just down the street. The breakfast provided in the inn had many choices . I highly recommend this inn when visiting the Portland area!

Charming and Delightful

4,4 en junio 27, 2013

I didn't want to stay in a "cookie cutter" hotel or motel and the Inn at St John was just perfect for me. I was in a single room which was very small but very adequate and the private hall bath was just that. My very own bathroom just around the corner from my room but which had to be opened with a key. Since the Inn provided me with a very nice terry cloth bathrobe this was not a problem. Also the continental breakfast was not just muffins and coffee. There was yogurt, cereal, bread and English muffins for toasting, juice and also fresh fruit and it was set up in an alcove with tables and chairs just off the lobby. Checkin was very easy and they are very helpful in offering advice on how to get to the main down town area by walking since I didn't have a car. There were also recommendations for dining near the harbor. I was very happy with the Inn and would stay there again without hesitation.

second time at this great inn

4,6 en junio 26, 2013

Sweet old place near everything in old town Portland. We walked to the Museum of art, Longfellow House. Many pubs & restaurants are nearby. Nice continental breakfast room. Very comfy beds. Pack light: there is no elevator! ( There are accessible rooms on the ground floor)

Convenient and comfortable.

I like the small inn feel and very friendly staff. This was our third family visit and all was good.

My stay at the inn

It was an awesome experience coming to portland and The inn at St john just helped make it even better. The rooms are clean and cozy and I found it extremely affordable being a student. The location of the inn is also good. Places are a bus ride away and it is also close to the train station.


4,2 en junio 24, 2013

We found this Inn through an internet search of offered amenities and reviews. It was a delightful place to stay and close by the Museum of Art, a 20 minute walk. The staff also suggested several restaurants in the area for lunch and dinner, all of which were 'right on'. I'll bet, if you try it, you'll like it !

Charming and friendly

Fantastic staff - very helpful.

A gem off the beaten path

4,4 en junio 23, 2013

I was always curious about this hotel when I lived in Portland. Then, I found myself needing a room and every other hotel was booked. I was so glad the Inn at St John was available, not just because it was a room, but also because it was so much better than staying at a Holiday Inn or some other chain hotel. This place has so much character and the rooms have been well-styled. The staff was great and we had an excellent stay. I have already recommended it to family and friends.

Perfect choice

4,0 en junio 22, 2013

Great value, clean rooms, service was good, location was just outside of the city proper but only a 5 minute drive from Old Port; if you have issue with stairs stay on 1st or 2nd floor as there is no elevator; 3.75 stars out of 5.

Convenient Portland B&B location

3,4 en junio 21, 2013

Close to the baseball park; a little bit of a walk from all the downtown restaurants, but not in the rough part of town - we felt safe and comfortable walking nearby even after 9pm. Several places to eat right nearby and a rite-aid store just up the street if you forgot anything.

like Europe

Great place to stay. My wife and daughter were doing the Portland 5K run so was in walking distance of the race. Also were able to take our dog, a big PLUS!

mid-June Portland stay

4,2 en junio 18, 2013

I would highly recommend this B&B to any traveler. Very easy to find, lots of parking, extremely friendly staff. The only thing I would change is to use a distinct thermos for the hot water for tea drinkers. Thermos had been used for coffee. You can't mix the two.

Great service

5 en junio 18, 2013

The Inn at St. John is a great value. The location isn't the greatest, but it's a short walk to shops and restaurants on Congress (a longer walk to the harbor, though). The best part, however, is the staff. They were very helpful and friendly during our stay.

this was my second time. I love this little gem

Wonderful visit

4,2 en junio 16, 2013

I had an overnight in Portland coming and going from another event. The Inn is a wonderful place. Lovely, grand design and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Within walking (a longish walk, probably a mile?, but Congress street is interesting in itself) distance to the Art Museum, Old Port, and the Wharf and shopping. Breakfast is varied with muffins, bagels, yogurt, fruit. I would stay here again for sure and look forward to doing so. Be aware there is no elevator.

Reasonably priced charm

Our room was comfortable, charming and quiet, the staff was friendly and helpful and the price was good. We enjoyed our stay and would definately stay here again.

Nice little Inn in Portland

4,4 en junio 14, 2013

The people at the front desk were very nice. The rooms were clean. There is coffee/tea and some other goodies 24/7. The location is also great- it is just a few minutes walk to downtown Portland (the immediate neighborhood is not great though). It has a very cozy feel with dim lighting and everything looking like it could have been from 100 years ago (in a nice romantic way, not in a dingy way). For the price, it is definitely great.

Excellent Stay

4,8 en junio 14, 2013

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay. We discussed wanting to come back for our honeymoon when we get married. We thought the staff was so warm and did a great job. We were about to walk around Portland and come back to such a nice room.

Great Place!

40th Birthday

4,6 en junio 10, 2013

Was disappointed in the room being right on the street with the traffic noise...when we first booked the room it said it was on the 2nd floor but when we checked in we were on the 1st floor right on the street. Would NOT want the same room again, only one higher up and/or further away from the street side. Otherwise everything was great.

Great stay at the Inn at St John!

4,2 en junio 10, 2013

We stayed at the Inn for one night. The price was perfect and it was within easy walking distance to everything. We chose to have a shared bathroom which worked out well. The Inn really did exceed my expectation and will definitely book a room on our next trip to Portland!


4,8 en junio 07, 2013

I was so glad that I decided upon this inn on our visit to Portland instead of one of the more expensive ones near the Old Port. Although this inn is not right in the heart of downtown, it is not difficult to get there. We decided to drive from the inn to a parking garage down in the Old Port and just walked around from there, but there is also a bus stop across the street from the inn if needed. We reserved a queen size bed with private bath and the room met all of our expectations. It was quite nicely decorated and very clean. There was a small fridge in the room which is a big plus for me! The breakfast in the morning is great, there are muffins, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, bagels, juice, coffee, milk, and there was even a sign that said a small gluten free selection was available upon request. I felt that they were really accommodating to everybody's needs. I am extremely happy that I chose this place and if I ever find myself back in Portland I will definitely stay here again.

A great stay

4,0 en junio 06, 2013

If you are looking for a nice place that is affordable, then this is the place for you. Just make sure that you enjoy walking and sight seeing or plan on taking the bus/using your own car. Its about a mile walk to the rest of the town.

Quick stop on the way home

4,6 en junio 03, 2013

The last train out of Boston gets in at 1:45 am. The Inn is just minutes away. Staff was up and the room was ready, the same one we used on the way down.

A pleasant stay!

3,6 en mayo 30, 2013

Overall, this is a beautiful and cozy B&B. The breakfast was excellent though the seating area was narrow and cramped. Everyone was in everyone else's way all the time. Initially we booked room 10A. This is not ideal for a couple with a child as the bed takes up all the space in the room and you have to stand in a narrow space at the side of the bed to change. The next morning, the very gracious and courteous staff moved us one flight up on their own initiative. We did not even have to ask! This was a lovely room. However, I think the third floor is slightly inclined as both my wife slept on the same side of the bed on two different nights and felt we were falling off the bed. So, the best thing about this B&B turned out to be its very helpful and gracious staff and for that reason alone we would definitely come back!

Comfortable, quiet hotel with all the amenities and great staff!

3,8 en mayo 30, 2013

Awesome little hotel on the outskirts of Portland, about 1 mile walk from the Arts District/Old Port. Not too close to anything too popular - the closest cluster of good restaurants is probably 0.5 miles away (Boda, Miyake, etc.). However, the hotel itself was clean, well-lit, and well-appointed. The private hall bath for our room was nice and clean, although the tub didn't drain very well. The bed was creaky but oh-so-comfortable. The dual A/C-heating unit was especially nice since one of the days we stayed there it was chilly at night. Sink in-room was an added bonus. Overall, a great stay! They were a little late in getting our room ready for us (by 2:20pm, it hadn't been cleaned yet upon check-in) - but the staff was hugely apologetic and they got it ready for us very quickly. Great service.

Great value as long as you can walk the stairs

4,2 en mayo 27, 2013

The Inn was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I loved the Victorian charm. The neighborhood is a little less than ideal - we walked down to the Old Port district, but had to go through a pretty sketchy neighborhood on the way. The only real caveat is that you need to be fit for walking the stairs and if you plan to walk to the sights in the city since it is a good distance to the tourist areas. Great value though - less than half the price of the Old Port hotels and just as nice!

Quality and value

Best gem! Quiet and clean! Felt very safe and staff very friendly and helpful! Loved it here a d I wi stay again!

Good price for a nice room

3,8 en mayo 24, 2013

Two things that bothered me was 1) mattress was due to be replaced and 2) the room was small that did not have a window to open, so during the night it became stuffy. Overall it was fine. The hotel did provide refreshments during the day and goods for the morning that were tasteful. I would stay again.

Great and inexpensive, with charm and location, close to downtown.

3,8 en mayo 23, 2013

Was please to have free parking, then an upgrade to a larger room with bigger bed an private bath at no extra charge. The cleanliness and quality were better than I expected. Staff were friendly and helpful. I booked again for next month. Not sure if I'll ever go back to Eastland Park.

What a cozy, quaint, clean and friendly place to stay!

4,6 en mayo 21, 2013

Customer service was absolutely the best! Airlines lost my luggage and the clerk at the counter offered to have my clothes cleaned and washed for me. The room was small but it was perfect for one person, super clean, and cozy. I felt very comfortable even though I had to walk through a hall to my own private bath. The continental better then usual..can't really complain! I would definitely come back ..easily!

Best Deal in Portland!

The Inn at St. John is a great, European style B and B. the rooms are small, but well appointed and nicely decorated.

Great Option in Portland

I had a very pleasant one night stay at this inn. I was impressed by the old-fashioned decorations in the rooms, the availability of free coffee and tea throughout the day, and the helpful staff. The value for the price was incredible! The two details that may be downsides for some are the shared bathrooms for some rooms (which didn't bother me at all) and the steep stairs with no elevator (the staff is very happy to help you carry luggage to and from your room). Highly recommended.

Cute and clever historic inn

Step back a century to this adorable inn with nooks and crooked halls. Confortable and very enjoyable two days. Staff helpful. Location a little far from old port for walking but still close to everything by car.

Off-season rates and good location make Portland very accessible!

4,0 en abril 29, 2013

Room 5A with a double bed and in-room private bath was clean and lovely, but only just big enough. Very tight quarters particularly in the bathroom - (shower, no tub). But we were only there to sleep after a concert at the State Theater - a very reasonable walk in reasonable weather. Or we were told it would be about $7 in a cab. Local bus (#1) stop is only steps away. I did not hear any noise from any other guests and street noise was actually quite minimal. I'm a country girl, so this is important to me. Staff (Jeffrey) was incredibly informed and helpful. Continental breakfast was more than adequate: coffee, tea, fruit, dry cereal, bagels, yogurt, more. Coffee and tea were out all the time as well as cookies in the afternoon and evening. There was also a coffee maker and fridge in the room. Free parking rounds out the sweet deal, and you can leave a vehicle after check-out. There is no lack of places to find something to eat within a short or really short walk. The Inn shares a parking lot with a Chinese restaurant. And of course - you're in Portland. Enjoy your stay.

nice place

4,6 en abril 29, 2013

I've stayed here before when traveling to Portland. I enjoyed the experience that I booked it again. Inn is very clean and staff is very attentive. Short drive or walk to downtown. Inn was close to the ball park. Dunkn donuts and the pizza restaurant/sports bar across the street is a good place to grab a bite to eat and get a drink. When traveling to Portland again I will definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay!

5 en abril 29, 2013

I needed a place to stay just for one night, and booked one of the twin rooms. It's small but comfortable and clean, the staff is great and very friendly, and the continental breakfast has several options that would keep anyone happy. I paid about $52 for my stay with tax, but even the bigger and slightly pricier rooms are worth it and a great value, especially considering the prices of other places to stay in Portland. Stay here; you won't regret it! I know I'll definitely stay here again if I'm in the area!

Best deal in Portland!

5 en abril 29, 2013

I'm impressed! Beautiful, spacious room, elegant lobby, plenty of parking, and a decent breakfast. A little off the beaten path, but worth it. A great place to stay in a great city.

Off-season rate made this the best value. Across the street from Maine Medical Center where we were headed the next day. Were upgraded to larger room without asking. Snicker doodles in dining nook were irresistible. Flat screen with HDMI input allowed me to connect iPad and use NetFlix. This was my third stay and further reinforced the reputation of The Inn at St. John.

Great little inn at an affordable price!!

3,4 en abril 26, 2013

I was planning to staying in the Old Port area when I happened to see so many positive reviews on the Inn at St. John's. I was a little nervous but the reviews convinced me to book a reservation. I remained nervous until we checked in and was plenty surprised and relieved to see the reviews had been right. While the inn may be a little dated in decor, for the value it was a really pleasant stay. The rooms were a little bigger than I expected though the bathroom is small. We made sure to book a room with a private bath. We also made sure to book on the ground floor since there is not an elevator and my mother is not as mobile as she would like to navigate narrow stairs. Our room was right outside the breakfast area but we did not hear anything. Coffee and tea were always available and the breakfast was a typical continental breakfast. The front desk recommended the Dogfish Cafe next door for dinner, which was good.

pleasant surprise

4,4 en abril 25, 2013

I didn't know what to expect from this hotel, but it was a pleasant surprise. It's an older hotel with character. The room is not huge but well decorated. Bed was comfortable. Shower had good water pressure. The front desk staff were very helpful. The location is not right on the water, but it is very easy to quickly travel from the hotel to any location. Would stay again.

Inn at St. John

Since it's located in a rather sketchy area of downtown Portland, rooms at this very nice bed & breakfast are remarkably reasonably priced. In terms of "value" this establishment has no rivals. And it's only a 20-minute walk to the happening heart of downtown.

Awesome, as usual!

Our second stay and it was even better than the first!

Thanks for the memories.....

4,8 en abril 21, 2013

We started staying at your establishment in the early days of the Maine Brewfest. At that time, you were just starting out.....most of downstairs was not yet open, The Sportsman was still open next door, and the upstairs rooms were furnished with what might charitably be termed "Early Church Auction" decor. Ever since, every time we return, you have continued to upgrade the House. We consider a stay with you as a regal bargin, and hope you never change. In addition, last year, in mid-summer, you upgraded us to one of your best downstairs rooms at no extra cost.....we had just spent a week camping at Baxter State Park, and walking into your well appointed air conditioned space was elegant. We have only praise and fond memories of our many stays at you Inn. Well done! ,Tace Holmes

Great place!

4,4 en abril 20, 2013

My daughter and I stayed here twice recently, on either end of a trip to NYC. We found the staff very welcoming and accommodating and the rooms perfect for our needs. We were surprised to find a fridge in one room and a fridge and microwave in the other. Taxi fare from the bus/train station is refunded to guests, a very nice touch. Will definitely stay here again.

4 night stay 1A

3,4 en abril 19, 2013

Nice size room, a little noisy facing the street. Tight bath. Cold foods for breakfast. Very helpful staff. Plenty of off street parking, once you know about the extra parking in the Chinese Restaurant lot. Steep stairs to 2nd and 3 rd floors.

Good weekend away!

4,4 en abril 17, 2013

My husband and I came up for a weekend getaway. We had a great time staying in room 108. It met our needs with both comfort and price! The staff was informative of the ammenities provided and how parking might be tight, but we easily accessed the overflow parking. The contential breakfast was ok, mostly breads and carbs but the fruit and yogurt was nice. We really enjoyed the kurieg machine in the room and Craig went out of his way to find us a darker roast than what was initially in the room. We will definitely consider staying here on our next trip to Portland.

I'd go back....

3,8 en abril 17, 2013

My wife picked the St John and when our local Portland friends found out we were staying here, they couldn't have been more down on the place from "what they knew". Nevertheless, we decided to stay here and we couldn't have been happier. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. The his/her terry cloth b-robes was a nice touch. Granted, the location is probably not ideal but it's not all that bad. My wife and I walked to the heart of Portland from the St John and never felt ill at ease. The morning breakfast was an unexpected delight. Really nothing overly fantastic but there was a nice assortment of good eats. The muffins and bagels were tasty and fresh, there was fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, juice, etc. Really all very good. When all is said and done, we'd stay at the St John Inn again...and for me, that pretty much sums it up. Needless to say, my friends are now eating crow.

This was a great little place - much cozier than the larger hotel chains, nicely decorated, a short walk from the bus station, central to basic amenities, and very friendly and helpful staff.

I stayed in a small 1-person room, comfortable, and especially nice if you are traveling alone and want minimal prices without cutting quality.

The Inn at St. John is a great option for someone looking to visit Portland but trying to avoid the high cost of hotels near downtown. It's about a mile and a half away from all the shops and restaurants you'll want to visit, which is a nice walk unless the weather sucks. We didn't interact with service much since we were only there one night but everyone was very nice and welcoming. The only complaint I have is that the breakfast provided was pretty pedestrian. You expect a little more from a B&B, which I was lead to believe this was. It was a basic continental breakfast with baked goods, cereal and coffee. I would recommend this place. I'll definitely stay there again.

The perfect stay

Both my husband and I absolutely loved staying at Inn at St. John. Conveniently located to the downtown shops and just a 5 minute drive to the mall and big box stores and beach. I used to live in Portland for many years and return often to visit with friends. The guest staff were exceeding friendly and courteous whenever we encountered them. Very lovely. We are both looking forward to a return visit- next time with our new dog and baby. The beds where extremely comfortable and room was very spacious and equipped with fridge and microwave to store fresh fruit and snacks. I loved that the sheets smelled so fresh and clean!

Perfect New England get-away!

5 en abril 04, 2013

We had a perfect stay at the St. John's Inn during a weekend in March. The Inn far exceeded our highest expectations in every respect. I expected far less for the price, and would certainly have paid double the amount for the service and quality space that was offered. All space was incredibly clean and well attended, and the twenty-four hour front desk staff was always helpful. The decor of each room was perfectly New England, comfortable, warm, and inviting. Extra touches, including wonderful bathrobes and beautiful furniture, made the Inn feel like home. Of course, there are no elevators, but that only added to the feeling of being the honored guest in a beautiful home. I recommend at stay at this Inn over any hotel in the area!

Great little hotel!

4,2 en abril 03, 2013

I've stayed here before and will stay here again. The front desk folk are always courteous and helpful, the rooms and bathrooms were spotless. It's a very homey and comfortable atmosphere, much like the B&Bs I've stayed with in the UK. Would highly recommend the Inn at St. John to anyone looking for a comfortable stay on a budget.

I found The Inn at St. John via Yelp, and the good reviews and competitive pricing compelled me to book with them for my vacation. The rooms are beautifully appointed, but it is the professional and friendly staff that pushed my experience over the top into a truly outstanding stay. Thank you for your attention to detail and your willingness to answer any question for out-of-town guests. The 24/7 coffee is an excellent touch as well.

A hidden gem

4,2 en abril 01, 2013

The Inn at St John is a hidden gem and my worry is that by posting a review, the secret will get out. The accomodations are wonderful and the staff are eager to provide assistance when needed. Such statements are easy to make for many hotels in Portland. What sets the Inn apart is the value. Room prices are more than competitive with other hotels downtown. It is minutes from the Old Port and minutes from the highway.

WE loved the Inn!

Cannot say enough about the Inn at St John. It is the only place I will stay when in Portland, Maine. The place has class, a very friendly and professional staff.

Great place to stay for a few days. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful, and the building is really cool. The room we stayed in was tiny, but we felt welcome to hang out in the dining/sitting area. Breakfast was kind of boring--bagels, yogurt, cereal, and apples--but they set out cookies every afternoon! The location was great as well--a 15-20 minute walk to downtown Portland.

Charming little hotel in the heart of Portland

This was our second visit to Portland. In our first visit we drove past this hotel and wished we had stayed there. Three years on. We had another chance to visiting Portland. This time I booked a night stay at the Inn. We arrived in the late afternoon. Checking in was pleasant. We had a room on the second floor. There was no elevator service, which we were already made aware of during reservation. The web site stated their staff could help carry. We had no issue carrying the bags up ourselves. But it would be a nice gesture if the staff actually asked whether they could help. Otherwise, the hotel was decorated in victorian style, charming and cute. So as the room itself. The hotel is located about 2 miles from the Old Port. We had a car, so it was a non-issue. For the price of $70 per night, it was totally a worth value - definitely will go back!

This is a very comfortable Bed & Breakfast. I had a beautiful large room. The only down side was that my room was facing the loud main street. Otherwise I had a wonderful stay there. Thank you!

Great place to stay, would do it again.

I've come back to the Inn at St John's twice now and have been pleasantly surprised by the level of customer service I've been given. I'm welcomed in with a smile, super great value and a very unique place to stay. I will always come back to this inn whenever I'm staying in Portland! Great job you guys! Love the place!

After many stays, no complaints

Have stayed here many times for over 15 years and the experience has remained consistently very good. This Inn is a great value. Although it is a 20 or so minute walk to the downtown "scene", it is a quick access off the Interstate. The "Dogfish Cafe" next door was wonderful when I tried it last year.

great stay

Excellent way to experience Portland

5 en marzo 13, 2013

On a recent interview at Maine Medical Center I decided to take a risk and deviate from the chain hotels that I had been staying in for most of my travels and take a risk on the Inn at St. John and boy am I glad I did. Upon entering I was met by a warm but not intrusive staff member who had a fire going and classical music playing in the lobby. He introduced me to the inn and informed me I had been upgraded, to the room several reviewers on this and other sites had complained about because of street noise. I, none the less, accepted the room and walked the 10 steps to my door. My room was warm, large and tastefully appointed including a mini fridge, Keurig and flatscreen TV. My bathroom was immaculate with very nice soaps and shampoo. My bed was very comfortable and the pillows were a variety of firmnesses so I was able to find one that fit my liking. The road noise was much less that claimed by previous reviewers and did not detract from a restful night of slumber. Breakfast was open early, tasty and substantial enough to sustain even a grand appetite until lunch. The parking is accessible through a clean, well-lit back enterance and I felt very safe, even in the early morning. I give my highest marks to the Inn and encourage any traveler looking to discover the best of Portland to stay here. The one drawback is I don't know how the Inn is able to break even charging so little for such nice accommodations!

LOVE Love love St. John's Inn

This is my fourth time staying at the Inn. When I make plans to go to Portland, this is the only place I consider staying. Bottom line: you can't beat the Inn at St. John for price, extremely pleasant and helpful staff, cleanliness, ease of access to Portland and atmosphere. They serve a simple continental breakfast, but the items are fresh and plentiful. I really can't say enough good things about the Inn.

Wonderful B&B

Quaint yet centrally located downtown, Portland, Maine B&B. The staff were kind, helpful and attentive. The room was great, loved the antique furnishings, cleanliness and comfort the uniqueness provided. Would highly recommend, the Inn at St. John is a true gem!

Charming and Elegant!

We only stayed one night, but wish it had been longer. Our room was a good size, not huge, but big enough. The bed was very comfortable. The room was homey and elegant at the same time, and very clean. Breakfast in the small dining area had the usual continental breakfast options, with huge muffins and croissants. We would definitely stay here again.

Great First Experience of Portland

4,4 en marzo 06, 2013

A very unassuming little B-n-B on the outside but the whole experience was awesome. It is a little hike to Old Port area but definitely hit a couple places that we may have missed otherwise. The staff is friendly and extremely accommodating. Rooms are super spacious and comfy; very homely. Will definitely stay again.

The room was large, clean and quiet. The entire building has a lot of charm and is very clean. The waitstaff was helpful and curteous. I couldn't believe the quality we received for such low rates. I would highly recommend the Inn At St. John over a chain hotel for your next stay in Portland!

Nice place, great price

I was here for a medical school interview and compared to other hotels in the area, the location and the price were both ideal. I enjoyed my stay here.

I booked a room here with a little trepidation after reading other reviews. The hotel is in a less desirable area, but was very nice on the inside. Longfellow square was only a 10 minute walk away. The room was clean and very quiet (107). Small breakfast was well stocked. I would stay here again.

This was a great experience. Clean and well appointed with engaged employees, was a perfect place to stay during my time in Portland. Plan on staying there again.

Best Deal in Portland

4,6 en febrero 28, 2013

Most people avoid this end of Congress St. and thus miss a gem of a hotel. Each room is unique and quite fanciful. Some rooms are very small, but still have table and chairs and bureau. Compared to chain hotels, the Inn at St. John is much more interesting and unbeatable value. The folks behind the desk are very polite and helpful. For people who have loved ones at Maine Med or early morning appointments and live far away; you are within walking distance. Their website is very helpful in choosing a room that best suits your needs. The survey required rating dining, which is not part of the Inn at St. John, but Portland has many fine establishments.

Favorite place to stay in Portland

4,4 en febrero 27, 2013

This has become our favorite place to stay when we visit Portland. The off-season rates are excellent and our rooms have always been clean, quiet and well appointed. The continental breakfast offerings are usually fresh and varied although the seating area is not set up in a very comfortable fashion, it's a fairly tight space and you might be better off grabbing a few items and taking them back to your room. Overall, I'd recommend the Inn at St. John to anyone looking for a pleasant alternative to the often sterile chain hotels that often cost more.

Wonderful and relaxing stay

Very Nice Stay

Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We always look for a unique place to stay so this fit the bill for us. Very quaint. Only suggestion is to wash their bathrobes as ours were hanging in the closet but when we pulled them out they were stained. Otherwise everything else was great. Loved that they had a tray at the breakfast area so we could bring items back to our room .

The Inn at St. John's was great

3,6 en febrero 21, 2013

Stayed three nights over a long holiday weekend and was pleasantly surprised by how nice the inn in general and the room in particular was. The lobby was warm and welcoming, the room was large, clean and had a very nice bed, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The stairs are quite steep and gave us some exercise getting to our third floor room but the staff was quick to volunteer to help us with the luggage. The tiny refrigerator in the room was malfunctioning and froze everything in it, including some glass bottles with truly spectacular, and loud, results. Just far enough from the center of activity to be a great deal, but still close enough for a pleasant walk. Only continental breakfast on site but you'll want to try Hot Suppa or The Front Room for that anyway - we'll be back and Portland was a great destination.

Fabulous deal...

Very pleasantly surprised, given that I had found this place based on price alone. I was staying one night, without my wife, so I went bargain-basement. Ironically, she would have loved it. Very European feel, small bedroom, but cozy. Not the snazziest neighborhood in Portland, but walkable to the cool spots. Highly recommend.

Cozy and affordable

5 en febrero 19, 2013

I am a regular guest who comes in several times a week. The staff is incredibly welcoming, especially Craig and Miles, who will go out of their way to make me happy. Often times deciding to stay is a last minute decision so sometimes I come without necessities but they always manage to find what I need. The rooms are cozy and affordable even the ones with the private bath down the hall. Commuting back and forth between Portland and a suburb of Boston is not easy but the Inn at St. John makes it possible!

Great staff, awesome rooms

We loved this peaceful room and Inn. I enjoyed the historical artwork, pictures and the freemasonry document hung up in the breakfast area. We were on the second floor, and although Congress St was outside our window, the sound did not penetrate very
