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...

This place has no reception which is great. A door code was sent to us in advance and when we arrived, after midnight due to a missed connection, it worked perfectly. We were so thankful to be able to get in for the night. The bedroom and shared facilities (lounge, shower/toilets, and kitchen) are high spec and in good condition.... More

Travelling over Canada and Alaska and arriving in thr pouring rain we easily found our key and room. They have such a good system here that I a surprised other establishments haven't adopted it. Easy to get in then your key is waiting for you. Forgot we got breakfast included....cereals and toast but that's all you will need when exploring... More

This place is inexpensive, superbly located, clean, friendly. Although the bathrooms are shared, there are enough of them so that we never had to compete for access. In fact, we hardly noticed that anyone else was staying there. There is a kitchen equipped with everything you need to prepare a meal - refrigerator, microwave, dishes, etc - and even a... More

We just returned from our second stay at the Guesthouse and are as enthusiastic as we were the first time. It is located in a beautiful section of the city, close to shops, restaurants and public transportation. No need for a car because there is so much within walking distance and the train is a few blocks away. The rooms... More

I stayed at the Portland International Guesthouse for one week while attending The Floral Design Institute. I was a bit apprehensive as I'd never stayed in a guesthouse setting and wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised! My room was clean and comfortable and I felt as through I was home. The hosts were very welcoming and the... More

I was in Portland for a short weekend and didn't want to splurge on an expensive hotel. Now I'm glad I didn't. The Portland International Guesthouse was wonderful! It felt like a home away from home, and the neighborhood it is in is great for a pedestrian (I didn't rent a car). It's close to the MAX red line, so... More

Neither my husband nor I had ever stayed in a guesthouse setting before. If every guesthouse was like this, I would never book a hotel again! We stayed in room 3, which is on the same floor as the kitchen and two of the bathrooms. Room 3 had multiple windows, a nice closet, comfy bed, extra blankets, and everything else... More
