We stayed at the Inn on Carlton the end of June for two nights. Buddy and Cindi could not have been better hosts. They were warm and welcoming and the breakfast served by Cindi was wonderful. We stayed in the green corner room on the first floor and absolutely loved it. It was recently updated, very clean and beautifully decorated. Both Buddy and Cindi attended to our every need and no request was too much. There was ample parking, a problem with some of the other places we looked into, without charge and the location was ideal. I would highly recommend this Inn for anyone looking for a place to stay in Portland.

We only stayed one night, but the property was very nice - clean, comfortable and in a quiet neighborhood. Buddy was very welcoming and accommodating when we had to rush out for a flight change. Definitely recommend!

We stayed here for 2 nights in late June 2013. Buddy and Cindy were wonderful hosts, and so friendly. The place is pretty and in a quiet neighborhood. There is good dinning nearby or you can walk 20 minutes down the Old Port part of town for more fantastic places. Breakfast was delicious - we both loved the bacon in particular. The room was very cute and cozy and met our needs perfectly. We will stay here again if we visit Portland.

The Inn on Carleton was our second stop on our New England adventure and this B and B lived up to its reputation. We were greeted by the lovely Cindy, who couldn’t have been more warm and welcoming after travelling up from Boston. We stopped in Room 2 in this Victorian house, which was very nice, clean and spacious (more than enough room for our two large suitcases). As this is a Victorian house, the room was a little darker than some modern style rooms that we have stayed in but to be honest I loved it (it really felt like a home from home). The Inn has a lovely guest room downstairs, where guests can chill out, read or play games and they have a beautiful garden to sit out (unfortunately we didn’t have time for to do this).

We had read other reviews on TA about the excellent breakfast and we weren’t disappointed. You have a choice between the special or if you prefer something less adventurous, they will do eggs, bacon, sausage, granola etc. During our stay I tried some amazing specials including lobster eggs benedict and French toast with a marmalade sauce (both very nice).

The Inn on Carleton is located within a 15 minute walk of the main Portland activities including the piers. The area seemed quiet and we always felt safe walking back to the Inn at night time. There are plenty of places to east with a short 5 minute walk of the Inn if you didn’t feel like going out too far in the evening and there was lots to do in Portland (I recommend the lighthouse lovers cruise, it was a lot more than just lighthouses).

From the moment we arrived, to the time we said goodbye, we were made to feel like we were in our own home. I would highly recommend staying at the Inn on Carleton, Portland is an amazing place and it’s a great base to explore Maine. My only complaint is that we never had chance to say thank you and goodbye to Cindy (she wasn't working on the Friday that we checked out).

I just got back from a 3 night stay at the Inn and it was absolutely fantastic. Not only was the place and the rooms absolutely gorgeous and quaint, but Buddy and Cindy were just the most warm and welcoming people! Breakfast was incredible and delicious, the property was in a great location (only a 15 - 20 minute walk to the wharfs and into downtown Portland), and there was parking right on site.

I will absolutely be recommending this B&B to everyone I know spending some time in Portland and I hope to visit again!
