Paradise in Portland

3.8 on November 08, 2017

I was afforded the opportunity to spend a few nights in the Inn at St John. I was pleasantly surprised at the kindness of the staff, particularly one effervescent young woman-concierge who greeted me everyday with a warm smile. The decor is small-town vintage, a theme that grew on me and felt appropriate in the heart of the city. I truly enjoyed my stay, the water was warm, my room was clean, and breakfast was terrific! The Inn at St John is a treasure because of its decor but most importantly the kindness of people I am appreciative of experiences during my stay. Needless to say I had a wonderful time.


All good

Everything was fine; staff is very nice. The in-suite hot tub is just jets in a regular sized tub.


Exemplary service!!

The Inn was excellent, much better than what I anticipated. They were super accommodating and went out lf their way to make sure you had a great stay. Would definetly come again. The continental breakfast was great, a wide variety and cookies 24/7!!

Nice place, convenient (Portland is a small town, however). The "on site" dining is really just a continental breakfast and it is standard fare, not outstanding, but what you would expect. Recommended place to stay!


Perfect getaway

Absolutely gorgeous room in a quaint Inn. Loved it. Wish it were a bit closer to Old Port. My wife and I were able to walk there, but decided a quick Uber ride was the best way to get back after dinner. Highly recommended.


Great!

First time in Portland

4.4 on October 11, 2017

My band was playing on a Saturday night in Portland and my wife and I decided to stay the night and make a weekend of it. All of the name hotels were booked (and surprisingly expensive). So I searched the internet and came up with the Inn at St John. Although not in the center of town, it was close enough. The room was small, but clean and the bed was super comfortable. The service was outstanding and friendly. The breakfast and late checkout on Sunday were nice bonuses.
