This place was awesome for a family, we were upgraded to a room with a full kitchen which was perfect. We were able to cook with an oven. The rooms were clean and large, loved it. Coffee was available each morning at reception. The staff were awesome and super friendly. Would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful visit to Portland for the NCAA Tournament (our team won) and Nordic Motel was a big part of our enjoyable trip. Even though there was a little bit of a discrepancy on the reservation (made through a third party), the office manager was generous in figuring it out. We stayed in Room 8 (near the back... More

We booked a room in Febuary because we would be attending an event at the MODA center. The facility was clean and the staff was very nice! Our room was clean and identical to the pictures I had seen online before booking. The hotel was also within close distance to anything or anywhere we needed to get to.

I received an upgraded room because I booked it through the Nordic web site. That was a very nice surprise. The room's are always clean and pleasant. This is a great place to stay, my wife has been very pleased with our stays here.

Nordic Motel is by far the best bet for your money whenever in Portland Oregon! I had to catch a flight out of PDX last week but the flight was canceled so I had to get a room for the night until my next flight out, which was in the AM the next morning. The kind and friendly staff had... More

I stayed at the Nordic for a few days and was reluctant to leave. The bed and head/neck-conforming pillow were super comfortable; I got great sleep, and that, for me, is the most important thing. Next important is the caffeination solution in place. Here there are two coffee options: drink the Nordic's, which tastes great and is free, or just... More

The staff was very friendly and the rooms were Amazing! At first sight of the price, I thought "no way it's this place as great as the reviews say it is. " I was wrong! I will stay again the next time I'm in town.

This hotel was priced very well, the rooms were very clean and the owners are fantastic. That being said this is not a very quiet area. The airport is close, you are across the street from a very active freight train track and if you hang around to mid morning you will hear the next door car shop doing its... More

I was a little suspicious of staying on Sandy by 122nd, but much to my surprise this motel felt very safe! They have completely renovated and left no detail undone. Electronic card entry and cameras with very good lighting in the parking lot. Carpet was thick and soft. Decor was very new and the tv was paired with lots of... More
