Bedrooms exceeded my expectations. Shared bathroom was clean and not an issue at all.

I will be staying here every time I go to Portland, I loved it! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful since it was my first time visiting. The hotel's location is perfect, only a brisk 15 minute walk to the center of downtown and parking is included! I loved the decor and the room was beautiful with comfortable beds. Breakfast was perfect for me, continental and includes cereal, bagels juices and plenty of fresh fruit. I booked 3 days before my stay and only stayed one night...which I am assuming caused the price to be high!

A place with charm, comfort

I needed an overnight to recoup from a European flight return to Logan. This sweet, small hotel provided that and more. The continental breakfast was generous and much of it homemade, the antique decor was of an older and elegant era, the bed restored my energies and the shared bath very available. I would recommend it with the added note that it places you right in downtown Portland--a big plus for me---but still quiet. I came from Boston on the bus and the hotel re-imbursed me for the taxi fare from Concord Trailways. And if you come in on Greyhound, you can walk across the street! Service, comfort and smiles all around. Linda

An excellent value!

We had a wonderful stay at the Inn at St. John. The room was clean and comfy, and the breakfast was great! What I appreciated most of all about our stay was that the St. John staff was very helpful and courteous.

Excellent Stay

This hotel is perfect for those who want something a little different from the norm. It has a very European feel. The stairs may be a problem for some, but I take mine two at a time, so it wasn't an issue. Fantastic take away/ eat in breakfast and the staff at the front desk were really friendly. We will be back for more.

Welcoming and clean, dog-friendly

I was really happy with my room at St. John! The room was comfortable and clean, and had everything I needed. Also, the breakfast was as good as you would find at any other hotel chain. Finally, the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again for sure.

Far enough from downtown congestion, yet walk able to town when you want to be in the midst of all the activity. Great restaurants in this area. Love that it's close to the ballpark.
