Very pleasantly surprised.

4.8 on March 22, 2015

I am actually local to the area, but was looking for a place to stay just for one night. Where it was just for a night, and I didn't live too far away, I didn't want to spend a large amount of money. The rooms here were very affordable. We(my wife and I)were very pleasantly surprised with the appearance and overall quality of not just our room but the hotel in general. We actually raved about it online while we were staying there! The only thing I can not speak for is the food. We didn't eat there. But there was a fridge in lobby with plenty of water and snacks available free of charge! I would highly recommend staying here, especially if you need an inexpensive alternative to the "big name" hotels. And if they are available...spring for a room with a jetted tub! You'll love it!-Brian

Nicest check-in ever!

Staff here is wonderful. Onsite dining is okay. We like a full breakfast, not Continental, so we went elsewhere. Our room was small, but cozy and very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

Night in Portland Maine

The cost of the room was very reasonable. I liked the vintage style of the hotel. The staff at the front desk were friendly and very helpful. The hotel was very close to highway and downtown Portland, so very convenient. I would definitely return and recommend this hotel to friends!

Our Favorite Place in Portland!

My boyfriend and I consistently choose the Inn at St. John when we go to Portland now. It is so homey - it feels like a tiny B&B and you hardly know there are any other guests, even when you stay on a night the hotel is full. They provide slippers and robes, and complimentary beverages and small snacks 24/7. The front desk is incredibly helpful and we have always found it to be very clean. Will definitely be back soon! The only reason I gave it 4 stars for service was because I asked them if I had left something behind and had to call more than once to get someone to find it and I am still waiting for it to be mailed back to me!

Beautiful, quaint, and serene. Wonderful management and staff: very friendly and helpful. Good continental breakfast, and wonderful to come downstairs to a quiet setting (no television blasting). Lovely inn.

We arrived at 2am from the boston airport. Someone was at the desk and let us in right away. Our room was ready for us, warm, clean and cozy. The inn at St. John is elegant, has all the details of a 5 star hotel. We love this inn and recommend it to anyone needing a room in Portland.

Gem in the city!
