For us this was slightly disappointing in that there was no contact with our hosts or any interaction with guests/staff. Our room was pleasant, bed comfortable, bathroom was fine but shower pressure was low and hot water was a bit "tricky", no television, breakfast in the morning was help yourself to items available in the kitchen (signs up as to what you could have plus instructions) and expectation was wash up your own dishes, dry and put away which was fine - just hoped the other guests washed up their dishes properly! The guesthouse was very quiet. Car parking out the back of the property, guest laundry was down in the basement and looked too complicated for us so we found an awesome laundromat nearby. Suburb itself was quite nice, restaurants walkable distance. Excellent supermarket nearby with everything you wanted.
Good location - comfortable bed
We were in the second floor suite. The location is great - close to lots of good places to eat (within 2-3 miles). The check in process was super easy (so was the checkout). Free parking with lots of room was a plus. We didn't notice any musty smell that was mentioned in some of the reviews - the inside was really clean and the bed was really comfortable. A few downsides were that the larger balcony (which is why we chose this room) was very dirty (see attached picture) and we tried to sit outside but had to yell to talk because the traffic was really loud (we thought this was going to be more of a quiet neighborhood) so we didn't get to spend much time out there. The building seemed to be a bit run down from the outside and the inside was just ok. It may be that our expectations were too high from the photos on the website and other reviews.
Lovely, lovely in every way...
We live in Salem -but Portland was the place to go for a special occasion...so we did our research and booked two nights at the Evermore Inn for my 70th birthday celebration. We had the third floor suite - and it was fantastic! Huge room, with two private balconies -balconies are a prerequisite for us. The bed was super comfy, shabby chic elegance decor throughout, quiet, romantic. BUT -the bathroom - ooIala! lt's massive ~ with a very modern take on the claw-footed tub for two (two can fit quite nicely) - double sinks with marble vanities, with lots of drawers and cabinets, and the glassed-in shower with double rain shower heads - again -two fit quite nicely. The kitchen is well-fitted out and a lovely front room with space for dining with others or just the two of you. The continental breakfast selection is fairly robust,. with real glassware and plates -nicely done. All in keeping with the sort of old-world ambience that just made you feel cozy, romantic, and sophisticated. We loved that they had closets throughout that provided extra towels, robes, pillows and other essentials. Tiffany was happy to oblige us in dropping off our luggage before it was time to check in - and what with car break-ins rampant right now in the city -we did not want to chance leaving valuables in the car. The off-street parking is a huge perk. We rarely saw anyone about, which was exactly how we wanted it - resorts with lots of strangers is not our thing....the Evermore was in every way. We will be back.... even if it's just for a night in one of the smaller rooms. Fair warning - there are stairs that may be difficult if you have mobility issues. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway...all the right amenities, look and feel are there - just bring the romance.
Great hospitality in prime location
We stayed here four nights while moving a new student into nearby Reed College and are really happy we did. The rooms are large, the beds comfortable, the bathrooms nicely equipped (claw-footed tubs and modern showers) and the vibe quiet and cool. Unlike many B&B's, we hardly saw the staff--and barely any other guests. The kitchen supplied all of our continental breakfast needs and plenty of cups and glassware. The location is perfect. The Clinton-Division neighborhood is full of fun and friendly restaurants and bars. (Cibo had great pasta and Division Wines offered some imaginative wines by the glass.)
Historic Inn and very private
Historic Inn-very private! Beautiful old home with lots of porches and balconies. The woodwork and stained glass is beautiful. Not a B&B vibe-even though the place had plenty of guests, we barely saw anyone so it was quiet and private. Kitchen was stocked with coffee tea and breakfast items for whenever you got up. 3rd floor suite was HUGE! King sized bed, double shower, two small balconies. You’d think the traffic would be noisy, but the windows and doors are amazing and really block the noise. Weird situation-the extreme heat in Portland actually warped the lock and we had to stay in a different room the first night. The innkeeper was amazing and reduced the rate for that night—thanks so much! On site parking - always a space available. Driveway is steep and a little hard to find-be aware. Only negatives: Old home = musty smell, I get it. But I’d love to see some essential oil diffusers or fresh flowers on the first floor to distract from it. No smell at all on the 3rd floor, yay! My only other nitpicky comment is that the balconies need a sweeping and cleaning. Awesome location! Great time, thanks!
