We stayed in the Jupiter Hotel two years ago and it's lovely, but.....also quite expensive. If you're looking for a place to sleep after a show at The Doug Fir Lounge for a reasonable price this is a very good alternative! Beds are comfy, sanitary is not new, but functional and clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Note; There's only... More

I was looking into staying in this hotel of my Portland trip in July. Their website informed me to call them directly for discounts. I called at 9:25pm on May 27th, 2012 and the man that answered the phone advised me they were sold out on the dates I wanted which were July 17th thru 20th. I advised him their... More

I am usually spoiled when it comes to hotel rooms. Like $300-$500 a night spoiled. My boyfriend and friends decided to take a weekend trip to Portland from Florida and instead of blowing all that money on a hotel, we decided to cheap it out and stay here. The room was cramped and old. The bathroom walls were dirty and... More

The room was good for the price. The location was very convenient and the staff was friendly. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

The Eastside Lodge (a former Travelodge with a face lift) is a great low cost option for those who don't expect anything more than a comfortable good night sleep. The rates are cheap. Parking is free. WiFi is free without any fussy passwords. The room looked really gloomy and dull in the grey color.....but if all you want to do... More

Stayed there this past weekend for one night. I did not book the room, a friend did. I was not impressed with the hotel when we first pulled in the parking lot, and it appeared that they had security doors on the rooms. There were stains on the carpet, the bedding had a foul odor and the springs were poking... More

We stayed here 1 night because our flight was cancelled, and we wanted a cheap option in the central district (paid about $85 after tax). This hotel is on the East side of Portland, about a half mile from the Burnside Bridge (lots of things to do on Burnside St on the west side). The actual hotel room was disappointing... More

Rooms are marginally renovated but bathrooms are not- quiet enough all things considered Folks its an exterior corridor hotel in a marginal neighborhood- it has lost 2 franchises in the last couple years... Service people were great but really they know it, you get what you pay for Nice to have some late night food stalls open nearby however!
