Stayed just one night passing through town and would definitely go back. Warm, welcoming staff, comfortable and very attractive room, and great breakfast cooked to order. The coffee cake was really delicious and it was very nice to have the choice of a lighter breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt, and homemade granola. Thoughtful touches like snacks and bottled water in... More

This is our second year in a row staying at this Inn. Cindy, the manager is fantastic. She remembered us from last year and made us feel right at home. She is truly the heart and soul of the Inn. You could not meet a more gracious and welcoming person. She knows her Portland and is great with the recommendations.... More

We have stayed at a number of inns in Portland, and the Inn on Carleton is the one to which we will return. It's a stately building, in a quiet neighborhood, lined with beautiful old trees. Cindy, the manager met us at the door and from there on, she helped us get settled and couldn't have been more accommodating We... More

We stayed three nights in early June. The inn is is a fabulous neighbourhood of Portland with many facilities close by. As others have said it's a 15-20 minute walk to the port area. The innkeepers are friendly and accommodating and made us feel very welcome. We loved our room on the top floor (the blue room), which was very... More

We had great time at the Inn on Carleton. The owners couldn't have been friendlier. The house is incredible, the garden in the back was peaceful and the breakfast was awesome. It was a great home base for us to explore (and easily walk to) the Old Port district. We were a long way from home (Southern California), but if... More

My partner and I married at the Inn last week and rented out the entire place for our family for three nights. We had an incredible time and Buddy, Cindy, Leo, Patty and the entire team went out of their way to make it happy and comfortable stay for us. The Inn is charming and incredible clean. It would be...

The Inn is an adorable and quiet place to stay while in Portland. The couple that owns the Inn was very accommodating, making dining suggestions and helping us with our luggage up to our room. Breakfast was DELICIOUS and served in a dining room where we could visit with other guests if we so chose. My only regret was that... More

Charming guest room, main area and dining room. All very clean and well maintained. Convenient location. Breakfast was beautifully presented and was delicious. We wish we could have stayed more than one night. Leo and Patty were gracious and helpful.

We just got back from a wonderful stay at the Inn on Carleton. From the first step in the door, the experience was great. It's very tastefully decorated and comfortable feeling. Leo happily took our bags up three flights of stairs as we checked in. Everyone on staff was so extremely friendly. Cindy took care of us on our first... More
