We were surprised to find that we had been allocated a smoking room, despite that fact that when we had booked through booking.com, we had specified a non-smoking room. The room stank of smoke and we could not even remotely reduce it. Even after leaving, our bags and clothes stink of it. The staff are mixed - a couple were... More

We had a reservation for three nights but located to another Motel 6 after the first night. Pulling into the parking lot, I had the distinct impression that this was one of those motels where down and out locals stay on a regular basis. We had two room and both smelled bad. We left our bags in the car, opened... More

Front desk staff informed me I didn't have a room even when I showed my confirmation number. HUGE ORANGE DOG PEE STAIN that covered half the mattress. Ask not to be disturbed. They didn't understand. Paid for wifi password, internet did not work. Smelled so, so badly. AND there are TWO strip clubs for you ladies or gentlemen that want... More

The room is large, bathroom clean, AC works, TV with cable, mini fridge. Its one of the cheapest options for a couple or small group traveling in Portland. Less than 10 minutes from downtown. You can hang out in the neighborhood which consists of the Motel 6, a brewery, a strip club, a high school and a McDonalds. It's basically... More

We chose this location because it was a bit cheaper than the Motel 6 near the Convention Center. The room was quite small, but it was neat and "clean". It could have used a good deep cleaning, especially the carpet. The room was a non smoking room, yet it still smelled of smoke residue. This location does not have microwaves... More

The welcome was excellent and the advice and service was the same. Unfortunately the room did not match the same level. Very basic accommodation that could do with a through clean and update of the facilities. Given we didn't pay that much is a bonus.

Friendly front desk to start. Room and bathroom were very clean, neat as a pin. Quiet and got a very good night's sleep. Went down to the lobby for coffee in the AM and the desk clerk was very hospitable. I would stay here again. The location is very convenient.

Will go down as the worst hotel experience I've ever had. We got the room and when my husband sat down at the table and rested his elbows, it flipped the table top up and almost smacked him in the face! We looked under it and was just held on by one screw, which had worn out. I had heard... More

Dont be fooled by the refreshed logo on motel 6 logo it means soaked down with fabreeze. I stayed there because of location. Turn your bathroom ventalator on 24/7 helps keep the smoke from the other rooms out. There is a mcdonalds across the street and several good local places to eat.

I was excited that this place was in the SE and right next to Hopworks, so I took a risk staying here. I thought 'how bad could it really be?' Well, it was by far the worst place I've ever stayed. My non-smoking room was VERY smoky - I'm pretty sure the air from other smoking rooms just circulates in... More
