Perfect Place to Stay in Portland

I have stayed at the Inn at St. John a number of times. It's great. Lovely rooms, old charm, comfortable, great service, all the people who work here are helpful and generous and it's easy walking distance to delicious food, coffee and downtown Portland.


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.

Continues to maintain high standards. Very helpful staff, very very clean and a real pleasure to stay here.


Wonderful B&B

4.4 on July 11, 2016

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!

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 on July 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 on July 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.
