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

We were lucky to get a room on 4th of July so we couldn't complain a lot about the price. The room was clean. Pretty big. No bed bugs. Smelled and looked quite old though. If it doesn't bother you you will have an excellent stay like us. Parking is first come first serve so you have to be quick.... More

I stayed at the Eastside Lodge in July. The room was dated but clean. I slept well - the bed and pillows were comfortable. I had to request a room to myself as I had been booked to share - this was accommodated without fuss which I was grateful for. As there was no lift I had to carry all... More

Stayed at Eastside Saturday night. Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean room and comfortable room and bed. 'Vintage' tube TV but no big deal. I really don't expect much from a two star hotel but this place exceeded my expectations. Vintage Mid-century feel but well kept up and freshly painted. My buddy and I had two rooms on the 3rd...

Although several people have left negative remarks about the staff, we found them to be polite and friendly during our stay. The room was clean and comfortable, the wifi was pretty good and there was a good selection of TV channels. If you want to get a good nights sleep you may struggle as the bar across the road is...

I would recommend Eastside Lodge to any one seeking reasonably priced yet very clean place to spend a day or two in downtown Portland. Its very close to the Pearl District \ downtown (10 mins walk) 5 mins bike ride. Its managed by elderly couple who is very nice and friendly !

A man who later identified himself as Kabir Moledina (that spelling may be off slightly) was working behind the counter when I checked in. As I was filling out the form, I told him I was not sure of my license plate number. He responded "leave it blank then, I'll be happy to have you towed". This was literally his... More

Highly unrecommended establishment due to the manners of the staff. We were shocked on arrival at how immediately and unprovokedly rude and patronising the man at the check in counter was. He was middle aged and looked slightly Asian. I asked for his name but he refused to give it to me. He was outwardly rude and insulting to myself... More
