I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Nordic Motel. It was less expensive hotels in the Portland area and I was looking for an economical alternative. since I was a female traveling along I wanted to make sure it was also safe, and indeed, the Nordic Motel felt very safe. Their rooms are all on the ground floor with ramps for... More

No frills, clean and newly remodeled. Friendly staff with a nice property . Not the quietest or best location, but an excellent property for a night or two . Very close to downtown Portland . Easy freeway access to downtown . If u don't want the free coffee in the motel lobby , great espresso truck directly across the street

Located close to the airport and even closer to the offsite Rental Car companies. After several flight delays we arrived at the motel at 2am and were still greeted with a smile. The room and bathroom were clean and had great amenities....refrigerator, microwave, DVD player. I will definitely stay here again when I'm flying in or out of PDX. The... More

People today are often reluctant to stay in small "local" motels and just go right to the chains! Take a chance and stay here! The owner Jay was great. The room (#16) was extremely clean. Bed was great. Shower was hot. What else could you ask for? Room was a little small, but made no difference to us. Just mentioning... More

The owners did a great job of updating an older motel. I loved my room it was perfect and it was great for an over nighter. Bed was comfy. Shower was good. The neighborhood at first seemed a little sketchy but I still got in a 3 mile walk at 6 am and I wasn't worried at all. I ended... More

Super clean, great beds and pillows, fantastic location, great value! Save your money, stay here instead of a name brand hotel, you won't be disappointed. Perfect for families and exploring Portland and surrounding areas like Multnomah Falls.

We spent the night to catch an early flight. The Nordic was clean, comfortable and all we needed. The only thing missing was in room coffee. The front desk coffee wasn't available until 7am so we missed out. Quick drive to the airport.

This motel is simple but comfortable. As others have mentioned, there is a fair bit of noise from cars, trains, AND planes. Our room also had a slight odor. Overall, though, we thought it was a good value for the price.

Room was clean and updated. The management staff were polite and professional. The property was quiet and we felt safe. We were there during a rare? heat wave and had to use the air conditioner which turned on and off during the night and woke me up. I think the addition of a ceiling fan over the bed would be...
