A Little Gem

4.4 on September 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!!!

Great decorations, great feel

We stayed on the second floor in a room with a private hall bathroom. It was a wonderful little room with all the amenities and AC control. 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!

One night in Portland

We were, unfortunately, only staying in Portland one night. The Inn at St. John fit the bill! Check in very pleasant, room spacious and staff attentive. Continental breakfast the next morning was just perfect timing & size for us to get on the road. Thank you!

Cozy and cordial

Perfect Portland B&B

4.4 on September 23, 2014

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

4.2 on September 22, 2014

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!

Quaint, perfect location if walking Portland is part of your plan, very friendly.

return visit from away

4.6 on September 20, 2014

We have stayed here a few times in the past. Always a pleasant visit. We enjoy the character of the inn and the lack of a "chain" motif. Very well managed inn with great access to all of Portland.
