I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this room in Portland for two nights. I wanted the usual; clean, safe, inexpensive and well situated. And that's exactly what I found at the Portland International Guesthouse! I could also add; interesting, welcoming, friendly and fun to that list! First though, if you can't do stairs this won't be for... More

We were welcomed by Tim as we unloaded our luggage before parking our car in the permit area. It is true that parking is tight but if you go up the hill a couple of blocks from the guesthouse you should be able to score a space. We kept our car parked for four days as everything we wanted to... More

Best part is location; we parked the car (using the pass supplied) and walked to everything the first two days. Easy to get to Powell's and the rest of the west, and restaurants and groceries are one or two blocks away. Weakest parts are the breakfast (self-serve, and they ran out of coffee and bread the first day, and then... More

Sorry your experience was not optimum. Regarding coffee, milk, etc..., sometimes we run out as guests use the products. We always hope that guests call us if we are out of anything, we always have back up. Regarding doors, etc..., not aware of any sticking doors but it is an old house but we strive to maintain it well. More

Great guesthouse in Portland - well located with many restaurants, bars, and shops in close proximity. It's a 10 min walk to the 'Brewer's Block' and 25 mins to the river. The guesthouse is very clean with free wifi. Yes you have to share bathrooms but was never an issue for us. There is cereal, bread, spreads, milk, juice, tea,... More

The best deal in town. For $80, I slept in a large, comfortable, air-conditioned room on the quietest street of a walkable neighborhood with lots of restaurants and bars. Check-in was self-service; I never met an employee. The shared bathrooms were clean, well-maintained, and usually (but not always) available. If you're driving, I do suggest splurging for the $9 parking... More

My friend and I were looking for affordable accommodation close to the Providence Park soccer stadium, as her daughter was playing in the women's team. We found this guesthouse via Trip Advisor and reviews sounded promising: affordable, clean, great location, helpful owners. Let me just say that every positive review you read about this wonderful gem is all true. From... More

This B&B is fabulous. Very inexpensive! Clean, comfortable and the host is great to talk with. He gave us fantastic advice on where to visit and places to get excellent food. The neighborhood is fabulous, very walkable. The entire experience felt like being a welcomed guest at a friend's house. The room we had (#3, I think) had shared bathrooms... More

I used to live in Portland so we haven't had occasion to stay in many hotels here. I was blown away by the cost of various traditional hotels when planning a getaway to PDX recently for a friend's wedding. We elected to go with the low cost option, and wondered why anyone would pay 2-3x as much to stay in... More

Just stayed solo for a week, echoing what others have said: terrific value, great location, good set-up, relaxing stay. No front desk, you have a room in a shared house, you're given access code to come in when you arrive, & pick up your keys on the bulletin board. Stayed in Room2, on the 2nd floor, next to the TV...
