Excellent value

3.6 on August 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.

4.4 on August 28, 2014

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 were further from the waterfront than we thought, but walked to a bike shop nearby and rented bikes one day to explore the greater Portland area.

Nice place to stay

A nice and friendly place to stay.

Charming little Inn close to Old Port!

4.0 on August 25, 2014

My fiance and I were looking for a quick stay and this was perfect! It was still close to all of the restaurants and bars near old port (little further than the other hotels) which was great. Everyone was very friendly and the room was perfect for our overnight!

A romantic getaway

4.8 on August 25, 2014

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.

Great Old Inn

4.6 on August 25, 2014

We have stayed here before. We like this inn because it is in walking distance of mid-town. The staff are knowledgable of local restaurants and have mede very helpful suggestions. We will continue to stay here, we believe it is a good value.

Wonderful 2 Night Stay at The Inn at St. Johns

4.6 on August 23, 2014

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!

The place to stay in Portland

4.2 on August 23, 2014

I always stay here when I go to Portland. It's a European-style inn on Congress St and an easy walk to great food, museums, bars, and music. Clean and friendly. You do have to willing and able to navigate a lot of stairs.

Great value for the price.

4.2 on August 22, 2014

Great value for the price. Convenient to downtown.

Affordable lodging near downtown Portland

3.8 on August 20, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn at St. John. We especially loved that they are a dog-friendly hotel so we could travel with our dog. The hotel is not in the main downtown area of Portland, but it's a short drive and you can't beat the price!
