Percy Inn

15 Pine Street , Portland, ME 04102 USA (Show map)


Hotel critic and travel writer Dale Northrup, CTC turns innkeeper in this 1830 Federal-style brick rowhouse in Portland's trendy West End Historic District, at Longfellow Square. Shrouded by coffeehouses, antique shops and more than a dozen restaurants within two minutes walk, the inn is centered within historic neighborhood laden with landmark buildings and significant architectural treasures. Amenity-rich rooms and suites capture the essence of the Federal period with conveniences and business amenities usually reserved for larger deluxe establishments. Yankee magazine calls us "irrepressible" and Chicago Tribune says "If we had booked far enough ahead, we would have stayed here."

What a gem!!!

4.8 on March 12, 2010

We stumbled accross this bed and breakfast through the tourist bureau on the Portland waterfront. We loved this cozy inn. It had off street parking that was well lit. The Inn was walking distance to so many restaurants that were all very busy. We ate at Norms and it was delicious! Our rooms were clean and comfortable with high end linens with a queen size bed. Breakfast was included and was more than we expected for choices of fruits, juices, cereals, breads and bagels , etc...great presentation! Oh...and awesome DVD collection! Thanks....we'll be back!!!

Charming and Romantic.

This was just what we were looking for. Great location where we could walk to a choice of at least 10 restaurants,... Portland Museum, and the Old Port down on the waterfront. There was free parking, free breakfast that had choices from cereals, breads/bagels, fresh fruit, juices, and one incredible tasting berry pie!! The room had an incredibly comfortable bed and all the amenities you'd want. The DVD selection in the parlor downstairs was the as good as a video store!! It was charming and quaint, .. no noise from anyone else. That's they way B+B's should be like... feeling at home and not like your in a commercial establishment with generic furnishings. We loved it and we'll come back. Portland is a great place with a lot of good shopping and some incredible restaurants!

Percy Inn - Great Choice

We wanted to stay in Poetland for one night and we were very pleased with the Percy Inn. The location is great to walk to many points of interest and restaurants. The service was great - a super room and a good breakfast to star tthe next day

Great location but no wifi & dimly lit

3.0 on September 03, 2008

Great location, good service, great breakfast and snack offerings, great DVD selection. Nice touch: in the summer, a bottle of frozen water when you hit the road. Drawbacks: wifi did not work and a whole set of the lights in our room never worked, so it was a dimly lit room, hard to read after dark.

Perfect Percy

I have stayed at the Percy Inn 3 times and the experience has been wonderful! It is clean and comfortable. The environment and breakfast are lovely. Across the street is a bar so I would recommend staying in a back room if at all possible.

Wonderful for business traveler

I have stayed here many times and have always been very happy. Within walking distance of many restaurants. Innkeeper very helpful and he even gave me one of thier coffee mugs on my last visit!

Good Choice in Portland

Great accomodations and great help on how to enjoy Portland. The innkeeper arranged room assignments to get us a large room for our group of three (my wife, daughter and me). He also pointed us to a great restaurant and made sure we knew to get reservations early. Great place to stay -- particularly if you don't know Portland and want help on how to plan your visit.
