A lovely, modern B&B in Portland, Maine. Our room and en-suite bathroom were both a decent size and spotlessly clean. Plus there was a communal sitting room area if you wanted more space. Free wifi throughout. Plus truly delicious breakfasts in the morning. The owners are both friendly and accommodating hosts. The Mercury is a little way out of the... More

I recently stayed at the Mercury Inn with friends for a girl's weekend. Tim and Jake were great hosts, the food was fantastic (the Cabot Greek Yogurt served in jelly jars was so adorable), and our rooms were comfortable and stylish. I especially loved the room (which my friend had) with the window seat. I also really really need to... More

The innkeepers, Tim and Jake, provided a fantastic breakfast spread: egg dishes used locally sourced ingredients, strawberry muffins, and yogurt parfaits with local maple syrup. The bed was comfortable and the linens were spotless. Ironing boards by request.

This was definitely a "find" for our 3-day weekend trip to Portland. The price is much less than what you will pay for other accommodations in that area, so it is certainly a value. Some of the unique little bits are: the green practices, the cute an authentic World War 2 Commissary table at breakfast, the old meets new decor,... More

I stayed at the Mercury Inn in June. The rooms were nice and had a very quaint New England feel - the exact thing I'm looking for in a B&B. The breakfast spread was delicious and I looked forward to the yogurt dish every morning. Plus the baked strawberry cobbler was amazing! I stayed in a larger room with a... More

Perhaps nice for hipsters that don’t appreciate service, but definitely not for us an older couple. Very tiny room and no one to assist you with luggage. The common space doesn't offer much comfort. This inn is in need of help big time!

We were amazed at how lucky we were to find a place so close to everything, and to not be robbed blind when booking. After staying we realized how more amazing it was that the price was so reasonable. Our room was very nice, the 2nd floor lounge was a nice touch along with brochures of local attractions. Tim and...

My wife and I stayed @ Mercury for one evening, and we found the inn to be very nice, although it lacked a few amenities that we had seen at other bed and breakfasts. Our room was a little tight with the slanted ceiling, but the spacious private bathroom was very nice, although it got quite steamy in there. We... More

Jake and Tim are amazing and sweet. We walked everywhere and the inn was in a wonderful location to do that. We stayed in two different rooms on two different nights, bookending a trip up further north into Maine. The smaller room had its own private bath but it was outside the room. No big deal, though we were spoiled... More
