I travel through Portland a lot. I have stayed at 4 diamond hotels to super 8s. Seems like you're always paying for a name or perceived superiority and I have yet to spend 400$ a night and feel like it was worth it. I've stayed at the Eastside many nights and I always feel like I got what I paid... More

As reported in earlier posts - dated but maintained. A clean and comfortable stay for an overnight visit when you need a good location at fairly reasonable price. On-line booking worked well and check-in/out was fast. No parking problems since I arrived early. Like most city hotels its noisy till late especially on weekends. Earplugs recommended! Very good internet hook-up.

The hotel is in a cool area full of fun well priced restaurants - just walk across the bridge and the market is right there - rooms are dated but it didn't take away from a good nights sleep - bathroom and shower was just fine - hotel is set back off the road so it's pretty quiet - lots... More

This hotel is fine. My boyfriend and I stayed here because of the proximity to what we were doing--an on-foot brewery tour. This location is within 1 mile of six(!) breweries. OLD building, which I love because it's solidly built (ie: you won't hear your neighbors/people walking above you, etc.) Some reviews mention noise from the strip club across the... More

Stayed here Halloween night. Friends and I got two rooms based on price and proximity to the event we are attending. We had a hoot reading and sharing the horrible reviews on tripadvisor and google reviews...but were really surprised upon arrival. First, the older middle-eastern man was very nice and courteous and handled check-in quickly and pleasantly. The rooms, while... More

Don't let the price fool you into staying, this place is terrible. And don't leave honest reviews on Tripadvisor, you'll have to edit out the honesty. Just read the other negative reviews here and elsewhere about the rude man who works there. I'd explain thoroughly, but in doing so I'd have to put in words that even blacked out Tripadvisor...

This hotel is a great place to stay while on a budget. It is in a decent neighborhood - there are many places to eat within walking distance and its only5 minute bike ride to the city - the city is about a mile down the road. Our flight arrived really early and the lady at the front desk was... More

This was a good inexpensive hotel, older, and need of updates but clean, safe, and in a great location. It was an easy wall over the bridge to downtown. Good restaurants nearby. It was great having a frig in the room. Staff were friendly. We stayed on the third floor which was quiet. There is an elevator to use. We... More

It is what it is & that's all I gotta say about it. Whenever I need a hotel I always look for the cheapest decent room so I can have extra money to explore & take in the town. After reading the reviews for Eastside Lodge it was everything I expected. A cheap place to sleep off the day &... More
