Bargain!

4.0 on November 19, 2014

I needed a relatively inexpensive place to stay for a few days while settling my daughter in to her new home in Portland. The Inn exceeded my expectations in many ways (breakfast was good and plentiful, beverages and snacks available 24 hours, room was very nice.). The bathroom was a bit of a mish-mosh--very dated and a very small stall shower, but clean and just fine. The hallways smelled a bit like cigarette smoke, but the room did not. My main recommendation is to be sure to get a room in the middle of the building. Our room overlooked the main street, which was quite loud. Also, be aware that getting to the third floor entails climbing 35 or so rather steep steps. I would definitely revisit the Inn at St John, with the caveat that I would insist upon an interior room for the relative quiet. It was inexpensive and quite comfortable, all in all.


A great find!

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend (11/15/14) and couldn't have been more pleased! Everyone was incredibly sweet and the room was spacious and comfortable. The only issue is that it's about a 25-30 minute walk to old port, but even that was a beautiful and enjoyable walk. Would definitely stay again.


Great place to get away but be close enough to the Old Port

Staff was very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were very nice and quaint. The traffic was a little loud where are room was located, but for the trip we were on the room was perfect. All the conveniences were supplied. I think that the only thing they could develop is the parking. We had to use the overflow parking at the next business which was convenient but I think that it would be beneficial to try to expand a little or be able to connect directly to their parking lot. Overall a very good experience and we are planning to have another little overnight getaway soon!


Cute little inn!

The decor is utterly charming, the cleanliness was exemplary, and the staff gave us a quality of service I've never experienced. I want to reiterate that: this was the best service I've ever had.


very budget friendly

I stayed at the Inn several years ago, and when I had to be in Portland overnight, decided to check it out again. The experience was even better than I remembered; friendly, helpful staff, charming room, delicious coffee. It felt as though I were staying at a favorite aunt's gracious home.
