4 guys wanted to be close to downtown without spending money. If the streetcar hadn't been offline (not the hotel's fault), this place would have been super convenient and yeah, cheaper than anything else around. However, the rooms were gross, just not appropriately clean with hair in the bathroom and used kleenex on the floor. Hire a maid already! We... More

Coming back from Washington state and had one night to spare before heading back east, we decided to find a place closest to downtown on a specific price. Tada! Econo lodge! The good, price wise I know I could have gotten a better or close to the same price with better facilities but, the location is good. The street street... More

We were in Portland for a trade show at the convention center and wanted to find a reasonably priced hotel nearby. We found the rooms to be clean yet dated. The hotel is right on the light rail line so it made it easy to get into downtown if we wanted. We were within walking distance to the convention center.... More

One thin blanket with a huge hole in it, Cold room, Internet not working, traffic noise, shoddy steps and furnishings, no plug for bath. Breakfast- horrid packaged pastries one might find in a vending machine. Pretty bad. On the plus side, the maid did a great job , it seemed very clean and the location is great for walking to...

I was expecting a better stay. Staff were friendly, the rooms were pretty clean, but the beds were really uncomfortable and the curtains didn't block the light. A few improvements would make this the best place ever to stay. Dang it!

Staying at this hotel was the most terrible experience ever! Our company was paying for the hotel room and they did not have email, only a very archaic fax machine. The owner was very rude and said that everyone had to wait outside until the fax came through and they kept asking for tweaks to be made to the authorization... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night in late November. Just a quick trip to see a concert in downtown Portland. We didn't want to spend a fortune on a room we wouldn't spend much time in so chose this place based on decent reviews. We weren't disappointed. Quick check-in, friendly front desk staff, clean and spacious room,... More

This place has not changed since last here. Great fast check in, Very large and well appointed room. The Price is right. Have not changed my mind on this place. Can recommend this place for an overnight stay.

We were on a follow-our-nose road trip from Berkeley to Seattle and did not have hotel reservations made ahead. The downtown Portland hotels were either sold out or very expensive. At first, we feared what we had gotten into with the Econo Lodge. However, the room was not shabby. It was clean. All of the fixtures were in good working... More
