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

Thank you to the staff who changed my $10 so I could take the TriMet. Did not appreciate being called "pretty girl like you" in nearly every sentence as I was checking in. If this happened on the streets I could walk away. This seems too much to stomach even for a hotel this affordable. Extremely uncomfortable experience. Otherwise, everything... More

We needed a place to stay overnight en route from Seattle to Ashland - a quiet place, near I-5 but enough away to escape freeway noise, with a comfortable king size bed, a bath, a microwave; not expensive. East side absolutely fit the bill. Would have been even better if they provided breakfast, but then one can't have everything, can... More

We spent three nights at Eastside Lodge. Summary: superb location. First plan was to stay downtown, but the hotels there were either bad or expensive so we looked a bit farther. Eastside ended up being way more awesome the downtown, with all the little restaurants and pubs. There are also a number of more interesting shops there, definitely worth investigating.... More

We rented this hotel room as we were attending my daughters graduation and she lives nearby. When we walked into the room, it felt as if we were back in the 50's. The room needed some serious upgrading. The room was clean, though my husband said he could feel the mattress springs when he was laying down. I didn't notice.... More

perfect? NO. but perfectly acceptable? YES. from airport, MAX to lightrail, and you walk only 3 blocks. on Burnside which takes you into downtown within a 15 minute walk, or Lightrail (3 block walk) where you can go anywhere. I didnt like Portland, but the hotel had nothing to do with it. If you need a clean, safe, affordable "motel"... More
