Classy, friendly, european

The hotel is beautiful and historic and the staff were the friendliest, most helpful of our trip! There are lots of steep stairs and the bath is in the hall, but they provide robes and will carry your bags. Our room was very large with a nice bay window. We loved it!

Great hotel option in Portland

A very nice small hotel within walking distance to downtown Portland.

Nice place, well kept. The only disadvantage is that the (private) restroom is outside the room.

Charming, soothing, calm, enfolding.

Posted Apr 5, 2017
Pros: continental breakfast, cosy-elegant atmosphere, historic property, knowledgeable staff
Location: A shopping centre across the major street has some eating joints, a thrift store, a dollar store, etc. Within 2 blocks are pizza & ethnic eateries.
The Inn At St John, despite a short stay, was a welcome respite during the workweek of business meetings. I loved that the continental breakfast is served until 10am and that there is a variety of whole pieces of fruit. My 3rd-storey room overlooked a road on the outskirts of downtown Portland, Maine, and was very quiet. The heating worked well and there are (yay !) bathrobes in the room. A very clean, comfortably elegant independent hotel / b&b. As to the stairs, if the Victorians could do it, so can we !

The place is just not our cup of tea. Funny smell. Trucks very loud all night. Bed hard as a rock.

Charming and friendly inn

Posted Mar 19, 2017 on Hotels
A delightful overnight in Portland. The Inn was accommodating and friendly. It was great how they provided robes and slippers since the bathrooms are not in the rooms. The staff was upbeat and helpful. The Inn reminded of a Wes Anderson set, with reds, maze-like stairs and interesting decorations. I loved it! While not in a great part of the city, it is in inexpensive Uber to some great food and shops.
