I rated this motel average because I think you are supposed to assign a rating based on the universe of ALL motels. Yeah, in that context it's average. But this is a budget motel -- and with that in mind and comparing it to other motels in its class -- the location, facility and service was excellent. Perfect for my... More

I knew beforehand that it was a two-star motel, so I was a little leery not knowing what to expect. And it was clearly a two-star place. But it was clean and comfortable and well-tended to. Not really a breakfast that I kind of expected. Very limited items. Juice and coffee and a few other limited items. The staff was... More

Sleeping in your car is better than staying here. People blatantly ignored signs and smoked anywhere they liked. The best things I can say about the place is (i) the guy at the front desk helped us move our bag to the second floor; (ii) he provided a hairdryer after I asked for it.

This hotel is not near anything. In an industrial aeea, if you have a car it's minutes from most things in portland. Looks shady but it's not. Gets noisy around 10 pm for an hour. Staff were great, room was basic but clean . Best for laying your head.

I don't have much to say. I'll my photos speak for me. Needless to say, we didn't stay. We were offered a second room. As soon as we walked in, I walked out. The reek of cigarettes was overwhelming.....in a non-smoking room. ??drug dealers hangout??? Sure looked like it.

We pulled into the area very late at night to find many people drinking in the parking lot. We would have left but this was literally the LAST hotel with a room available in Portland and I now know why. We would have gone elsewhere if we had the chance! I would never stay here again or recommend this place.

This hotel has great proximity to the Expo Center. We stayed in it in 1994, then again in 2014. I think we had the same mattress. Even though the springs were coming through the mattress, the manager had basically nothing to say, "yeah we need new beds" as he left. This hotel needs a clean up in a bad way.... More

So I bought this hotel room for a one night stay in Portland. First off not close to Portland. Second scary as hell! People coming up to doors banging on them. People randomly ealking in the parking lot. Horrible traffic. Horrible customer service. Guy told me to pretty much deal with all the problems. Dont stay here ever!!!!

After the 4.5 star hotel my boyfriend and I were supposed to have stayed in booked us a month too early and left us out in the cold we searched 2 1/2 hours to find another place to stay. There was a convention going on in Portland that weekend and we had nowhere to go. Another little motel directed us... More

Rooms not clean. dirty floors and carpets. Looks to be illegal activity going on. Women pandering for money to our rooms. lot of traffic noise. Had to leave early couldn't take the noise and traffic or the unhealthy conditions.
