Quaint little place with lots of charm
We were only in Portland for the night, and just needed a place to rest for a few hours. We loved the idea of a historical hotel and the Inn certainly delivered. However, you should be aware that historical has its drawbacks! Namely, no elevators and shared bathrooms! It was fine for us, as we were out early to see the sunrise, but if you are planning to stay a while (or have special toiletry needs), you might like a newer hotel. The desk clerk was awesome, and had a fresh pot of coffee waiting for us when we left at 4 am.

Clean friendly hotel wth a B&B feel
The Inn at St. John has a warm friendly feel that provides good value for money compared to overprice waterfront chains such as Hilton or Marriot. The atmosphere is more B&B than hotel. One caution: the hotel has no elevators so be ready to climb stairs; luggage and all. We took a room with a private bath across the hall and it worked just fine. Some nice touches include free Wi-Fi and a 24 hour cookie and coffee station. The location is not the best but an Uber ride to the waterfront action was $6, so no big thing. All in all I would stay there again. Breakfast was mediocre bready muffins; instant oatmeal etc and could be improved.

We were not happy with the parking situation due to a ball game nearby and were graciously refunded our money by the hotel. Thankyou!!

Not worth the money at all
This is an OLD house with a maze of corridors and stairs that makes it impossible for any guests with even the slightest walking trouble. Make sure not to bring any luggage heavier than 4 pounds. All over the hotel there’s an old and stinky carpet that really is grim. The room is fairly big, but make sure you get one with a private bath. The shared baths are bad. The staff at the reception is not very friendly. The breakfast (!) is a complete disaster. This is really not worth the money at all!
