A perfectly just okay stay in Portland, ME
Room was clean, hotel had character. Note that the road noise can be loud if you are facing the Greyhound station across the street (pack some earplugs!).

We were first time guests and we plan to return often. One word of caution. If you have mobility problems, let them know in advance. There is no elevator. Our stay and their hospitality could not have been better.
Richard, us1 night trip
Inn At St John, Portland
Check in went seamlessly. Staff very polite and attentive to my requests and questions. Room and separate bathroom were both very clean. The building is old and has the quirks of one but I enjoy this and they have some a great job of making it enjoyable despite its age. I have stayed here many times and have recommended it to many people.

I loved this hotel, the staff was friendly, there were little extras that just made the stay extra great, the room was a good size and very clean, I will never choose to stay in another hotel in Portland again except for this one!
