My room was not ready when I arrived, because the people before me had not yet checked out. The staff was very accommodating given the predicament. It's a very comfortable and friendly place.

Very clean, nice rooms. Free parking right next to hotel, with plenty of space. Located in a quiet area that's not too far from downtown. Breakfast was ok.

My husband and I loved the Inn. Breakfast was great as well as the little treats left for us of the evenings. A great value for such a nice historic place. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.


Would stay here again

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.


Would definitely return to the Inn at St John

This was our third stay at the Inn at St John. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, the rooms are very nice, and the hotel itself is ideally located for the sort of activities we like to do in Portland. Highly recommended! Mark Smith


Quaint and Ecclectic

3.2 on September 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
