Perfect location. We love the history behind the hotel. It was comfortable and satisfactory given the price point.

Beautiful, historic building. Very nice aesthetic. Staff was extremely friendly. Would definitely consider staying again when I go back to Portland sometime!

The Inn is great, parking not so much. They have a small lot behind the Inn but if you don’t get in early you are out of luck. I had to park across the street and around the corner in a public parking lot with no signage for the Inn parking. It’s a short walk to the corner, across the street and up the block to the Inn. Not really sure how safe the neighborhood is but it is quiet.

Beautiful inn setting

Great location, about a mile to a mile and a half from the old port. We walked there during our stay. The staff was wonderful and the inn was very clean. We would absolutely stay there again!

Just really liked the place. Has the old time look. Room was big. I booked the room that had a private bathroom with a tub.

It exceeded my expectations! Would definitely stay here again

I had called and said I would be in around 1 am, the person told me it was ok. When I got there, the desk person told me that someone had signed my copy of the room agreement and was in the room. I ended up finding a hotel and Orbitz had wonderful customer service and refunded my stay. To the Inn, you need to check IDs when people stay at your place.

Friendly staff, reasonable location. Stairs are narrow so ask for a first floor if any issues with climbing stairs.

Pleasant ambiance, friendly and accommodating staff, just-right location

A convenient location to the I-295 and downtown Portland. A comfortable room; and a basic, but satisfying buffet breakfast.

Enjoyed our stay at this Inn. The building had lots of character and it was fun to stay somewhere different than your cookie cutter average hotel. All the staff was super helpful and friendly. The complimentary hot coffee, tea, cookies, and bottled water available in the lobby was a sweet touch. It was also in a nice location for walking to shops downtown on Congress St.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for your review! We are glad to hear that your stay at the Inn was pleasant. We understand that our complimentary parking, divided into two lots for on-site and off-site, is indeed limited in terms of size. When our on-site lot fills up, we have our off-site lot located diagonally across from us marked for guest use with installed signage, both of which we are confident in its safety for our guests. We apologize that it was not sufficient for your needs, and wish you all the best in the future. We hope you get the chance to enjoy Portland again in the future!
