Basic urban motel but well priced. Smallish rooms, but well kept. Overlook the funky maintenance work. Free parking, outside entries. 25% discount at excellent corner restaurant. Walk to dinner, bakeries, & coffee shops. Quick drive to the ConvCtr for events.

We stayed at the eastside lodge over the long July 4th weekend. The location was nice. It was a 15 minute walk, over the Burnside Bridge to downtown. But there weren't many bars or restaurants around us, which was a little disappointing. If you have a bike, the location is pretty ideal, as it is surrounded by great neighborhoods. The... More

No frills. But recently "refreshed" and quite clean and comfortable. Helpful and pleasant front desk staff. For the money, a pretty darn good deal. Good access to the airport without being near the airport. In-room nuke, fridge and safe. No hairdryers. The "swanky" Doug Fir is across the street and down a short block, serving breakfast/lunch/dinner. Very convenient. It has... More

This place sucks in just about every way possible. Shower runs hot/cold, so you're never warm, just vacillating between burned and frozen. Street noise, door key doesn't work (have to return to office with all my bags sitting outside the door), slamming doors, loud steps upstairs, and, to top it off, I found a nice big blood stain in my...

Yes it is more expensive than a hotel out by the airport but for location and not having to share a room with 10 other strangers (ie a hostel) Eastside lodge is perfect! It's clean, the decor might be a bit tired and it might smell like cigarettes from years gone by, it's been perfectly located for each of the... More

Some friends and I booked the Eastside Lodge in Portland because we were attending a concert at a near bye venue. The room was clean and comfortable. The gentleman who runs the hotel was really friendly and helpful. This is not a super fancy property, but it is a great value in a good location. I would stay there again... More

I spent four days over the Labor Day 2013 weekend. This is a very basic motel, but it was clean, a great value, and so close to so much. Fridge and microwave in the room, which many motels/hotels won't give you at all. I was able to walk or take transit everywhere. I walked to the Portland Saturday Market and... More

I spent a weekend in Portland with my two best friends, and due to not being very on top of things, we didn't have many options to stay by the time we were ready to book a hotel. Eastside lodge was BY FAR the most affordable option for us three (85 for two queens in high season? Yes please!), and... More

Good value for the money. I wish they had coffee makers in the rooms, but it seems as if people steal them. They do have coffee in the lobby (but was pretty weak if you ask me). The place was clean, the management was friendly, and they have good management.
