Another lovely stay here

4.2 on February 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

Staff went way above and beyond - so impressed

Always Accommodating and the Best Price in Portland

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 on February 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!

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

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

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

Early flight next morning

4.2 on January 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

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