I've been to Portland three times, and stayed at this inn each trip. I keep coming back for the very good rates, easy access to the highway, helpful staff and nice rooms. It's a little outside of Old Port, but you easily save $100 per night here as opposed to a downtown location. It's about a ten minute cab ride to the center of Old Port, but a relatively quiet neighborhood. It is across the street from a bus station, pizza parlor and a few other chain restaurants. In the summer, the baseball park is just up the street within walking range. The breakfast is a little sub-par and the parking is a little scare (although I have never had an issue with the lot), but that's not a big deal in my book. My only concern is each time I have visited, the hallways and stairs deteriorate a little more (duct tape and stains, mainly) but the rooms have remained very cozy and a much better deal than a roadside motel.
St. John is a perfect for a young couple looking to explore Portland or a family wanting to get away from the nighty Fore Street bar scene, but remain in the heart of the city. If you're looking for a super ritzy place within Old Port, try a different hotel. But if you're heading up for a few days and want to save a few bucks but still remain close to the restaurants, ocean and museums, check out the Inn at St. John.
