We spent three very pleasant nights at this small, urban inn in the west end of Portland - very welcoming, quiet and comfortable. A different breakfast buffet awaited us each morning - offerings included fritatta, yoghurt, scones, blueberry oat cakes, apple cider, coffee, tea, etc....all good and made by on site by Tim, who is one of the innkeepers.

We stayed at Mercury Inn for 4 nights a week ago to celebrate our engagement. I have never written a review for anything before, but loved this inn so much that I couldn't not write one this time! The pictures on their website did not do this adorable inn justice! Our bed in room 1 was very comfortable and the... More

Well-designed interior, quiet room, delicious breakfast, charming and convenient location. Walking distance to most attractions. And most of all, cool & helpful owners. Definitely one of our highlights in Portland.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mercury Inn. We're a young couple from Brooklyn and were pleasantly surprised by the hip inn conveniently located right near the center of town. We loved taking strolls through the quiet neighborhood and each night we walked home from dinner. The couple who owned the b&b were very helpful in recommending places to... More

We stayed only one night but I wish we could have stayed for a week. The owners were extremely friendly and welcoming and the room/lounge area were very stylish and comfortable. The homemade breakfast was absolutely delicious too! Location was fantastic with really easy access to all the main shopping and restaurants. Easy walk to the seafront too. I would... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the inn for a weekend and could not have had a more perfect stay. Our room was wonderful and tastefully decorated, parking was super easy, Tim & Jake were incredible hosts and breakfast every morning was outstanding. The downtown and waterfront area is a short, beautiful walk away from the inn and there are... More

Friendly proprietors, comfortable room, nice bathrobes, good wifi, well located, free off-street parking, good value. We left too early to have time for breakfast, but it looked fresh and good. Would recommend. If you are on the top floor, be patient for the hot water. They have an "on demand" system and it takes a few minutes - but it... More

If you are planning on visiting Portland, you must stay here! My only regret is not staying longer. There is no detail overlooked at the inn- The decor is clean, modern, and appealing. Our room was clean and welcoming upon arrival. We appreciated the environmental friendliness the inn had to offer- they have thought of everything! We loved hanging out... More

I recently stayed at Mercury Inn with my husband for our first anniversary trip. We've stayed at Airbnb places previous nights, but got tired of airbnb style and wanted an experience that was between a clean quality hotel and local friendly vibe, and was really glad to find Mercury Inn! Tim and Jake are super nice inn keepers. They greeted... More
