Room was very clean, and had pretty much every amenity we needed. The sustainability aspect was great and much appreciated. Part of the reason we stayed there was due to their emphasis to be eco-friendly. The breakfast was fantastic, and great for us as vegetarians.

Wide movie and book collection and well appointed communal lounge area on 2nd floor with cozy stove, nice seating set up and a good tea selection for an afternoon of reading in...

The Mercury Inn is the perfect home base for visiting Portland. It's centrally-located, with a quirky-stylish vibe (in true local style) and many unique little flourishes, from the blue and gold lobster wallpaper in the entryway to the repurposed mess hall table in the dining room. The breakfast, lovingly prepared each day by the innkeeper, is fantastic and features various...

Where to start on how amazing our stay was at the Mercury Inn. I guess we will start at the beginning. We opted to park on the street and had no issues finding a spot. There were many spaces available. Self check in (if you want it), it could not be any easier. You get a text with the entry...
