My favorite place to stay on my irregular visits to Portland. Different rooms each time and never a bad one. Excellent staff who are always pleasant and helpful. Rooms are clean. It's not downtown but it's a great location nonetheless. A walk downtown via Park Ave and through Deering Oaks Park is a great way to start the day.
my friend and I visited last week on our girls getaway trip up the coast of Maine. The two owners are very warm and friendly and attentive to the guests. . The food was delicious and they accomadated for food allergies. The historic home is stunning and the view of the river is very pretty. I'd highly recommend this b & b. it's a gem!
I have stayed at this inn many times when in Portland. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful, continental breakfast is good (even includes some gluten-free goodies at times), rooms are very clean and it is conveniently just off the highway and local restaurants are close by.
My daughter and I recently stayed on either end of a trip. We've stayed before, so this trip met our expectations. The Inn is pleasant, clean, and affordable. We appreciate the charm of the place and the other travelers we meet. Parking is convenient. WIll continue to plan visits to Portland and stay at the Inn at St John.
We've stayed at the Inn at St. John every time we've visited Portland over the last several years and have never been disappointed. The rooms are fresh and clean, the breakfasts and snacks are generous and of very good quality, the staff is friendly and helpful, off-street parking is adjacent to the Inn, and we continue to find it an excellent value.
I've stayed at Inn at St. John many times over the past five years and will return. I usually stay in rooms with double beds and private baths. These have all been exceptional, especially for the value. My latest stay, however, was a twin room with private bath, #3A. This room is at the top of the stairs from the main lobby, which is convenient, but the walls are very thin and it's noisy. I could hear conversations in the next room. Unsettling. The room and bathroom are clean, well-appointed and comfortable otherwise. The exception is the bedding. The sheets were a slippery synthetic, satin-like fabric that would not stay on the mattress. I discussed this with the staff in the morning and suggested that basic white cotton hotel sheets would be an improvement. The front desk staff is always great and they assured me that they would notify the owner of my request. This Inn is one of the best values in Portland--a real gem--and I will certainly return. Next time, I'll ask for a double room on a higher floor, though.
I love this hotel. It's beautiful. Clean. Attention paid to detail. They've thought of every need so you don't have to ask! The service was friendly. I always look for an available room here before I search other hotels. Thank-you for a great stay!!
We stayed for three nights in April '16 and had a wonderful time. The Inn is ideally located right at the lake, with beautiful views from the rooms. Sue & Roy are great hosts who made us feel at home instantly upon our arrival. Roy is a superb cook and showed his diverse skills at breakfast when he provided a large variety of tasteful meals. Wolf Cove Inn is a great place to spend vacation time!
Had a wonderful two-night stay recently. The room was quite beautiful and comfortable - so tastefully appointed. I loved having a second, private entrance to my particular room from the outside, as I had to come late on my first night and depart very early on my second morning! I also loved that I could make coffee in my room in the morning. : ) I would absolutely return.
Elegant atmosphere. Great location on Congress Street. The folks who work there are so friendly and helpful to visitors. A great value. Very fair room prices and free parking. I've stayed here four times and just adore it. The best!
This inn made every effort to make my stay enjoyable. During my stay a problem with my room was quickly fixed and the staff went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable. The rooms were very clean and charming. The staff was professional and caring.
Great rooms and service! Small for rooms in the US but it was all we needed and great for the price. Near transportation into the city and a nice walk from downtown. Would rec ground floor if you have trouble with stairs as the stairs are a bit steep. Loved it and would stay again :)
This is the second time I've stayed at the Captain Jefferds Inn. The owners/innkeepers are warm and helpful but not intrusive. The breakfasts are excellent and beautifully served and the management graciously accommodated a guest who had specific dietary requirements. Rooms are clean and well-appointed, some having gas fireplaces which work well. I recommend this inn most highly.
This hotel was reasonably priced, clean, and friendly. We walked to Old Port in about 30 minutes. It's not bad to walk after eating so well around Portland anyways. Some weird characters in the neighborhood, but kind of par for the course being right next to a major hospital and train station. Parking was easy and plentiful. We would definitely stay here again. Savage BBQ down the street was amazing also and so close.
I love this place. Have been there many times and have never had an unsatisfactory stay. They do allow dogs but you would never know it. The rooms are spotless and smell so clean. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Portland, unless they were booked!
My girlfriend and I stayed in a room with private path and one double bed. The room and bathroom were small compared to a chain hotel, but understandable considering the old building; certainly not too small to be comfortable. Very friendly staff and neat historic building. The only negative thing I've to say is that decorative, outer blanket (not one that you sleep with) on the bed was dirty. A much nicer experience than staying at a chain hotel, and at near the same or even a better price. Will definitely be staying here the next time we visit Portland. FYI, Pizza Villa, across the street, is convenient and has good food.
