This is a good place to stay if staying in the Portland downtown area. It's a much better value than staying in the much more expensive downtown hotels. This B&B is under new ownership very recently. The new owners are friendly and are doing a great job. It's a 5 minute walk to Congress St. and about a 5 minute... More

The Inn is a bit of a walk into town, but with all of the food Portland had to offer, that walk was needed! Great breakfast every day, kind friendly hosts. There are some loud neighborhood birds to deal with, so if the air is off and you are a light sleeper that may be a problem. For is it... More

We stayed on Friday & Saturday nights and am so happy we chose IOC. It is located in a beautiful area and Leo & Patty are gracious hosts. We stayed in Room 1, which was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The garden in the rear serves as a welcome respite along with a cup of tea, water, juice and snacks... More

Stayed at room 2 and everything went very well. I was treated great by Leo and Pattie who are terrific hosts. Breakfast is similar to dining at a fine french bistro given the quality of the recipes. Fully recomended place.

We stayed only one night at The Inn on Carleton but were made to feel very welcome. Leo gave us lots of good info for dining in Portland. Patty does a great breakfast. Our room was spacious, beautifully clean and well maintained. The Inn has a lovely back garden to enjoy in good weather.

My wife and I only had one evening and morning with the Inn on Carleton, but in that time, we were treated like family. Leo & Patty, for only being B&B owners for a few weeks, really know how to make you feel at home. Patty's breakfast was delicious! Croissant french toast stuffed with cream cheese, definitely a delicious way... More

I could not have stayed in a more perfect place. Beautiful rooms, quiet, comfortable, great location in the nicest part of town. Easy walk to a variety of good restaurants. The hosts, Leo and Patricia we're very helpful and the breakfasts were wonderful. Patricia is a great cook. I would love to visit Porland again just so I could stay... More

Since I booked the room on March 16th, the inn has changed hands. We had a very nice stay. The breakfast was very good. The room was quiet and comfortable. The inn keepers were very nice and seeming like they are trying to adjust to this new way of life. They are doing well! The only concerns I had were... More

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
