First of all, this is a very nice motel. Very clean, close to the airport, and close to public transportation. Best of all, are the owners, Jay and Lina. I broke my foot while in Portland and they went above and beyond helping me. Great experience and will stay there again!

We got into Portland about midnight and were so pleased to find such a clean and neat room awaiting us at the Nordic Motel. The proprietor was very welcoming and pleasant, even though it was late at night. We had a room at the back of the parking lot and heard no road noise or anything from the room beside... More

This is a sweet little motel with friendly and accommodating staff. The place is kept tidy and the room was very clean. The rates are very cost effective and location is convenient to all of Portland. I will be a returning customer.

Stayed three nights on our western US tour. Arrived in Portland by train so wanted a base with good public transport but also close to PDX airport where we collected a hire car. Nordic is a small motel on a 'motel strip', rooms obviously recently refurbished and very smart. Plenty of space and all the usual facilities. Hot drinks available... More

Small, completely refurbished and very clean motel near the airport and no more than ten minutes to great shopping, restaurants and bars. Great price with a small kitchen (stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave, but no pots, pans, plates, cups or utensils). Free WiFi, HBO and Showtime, plenty of space for work or relaxing. Not much to see in the immediate neighborhood,... More

I've stayed here when in this area of Portland for a night here & there and it's decent for the price. They've renovated the few rooms I've been in and they have a full size stove and refrigerator. There was a hot water issues once but the manager on duty offered to let us shower in another room. The area... More

The hotel claims these are queen-sized beds but they are double (as known as full). We asked to change rooms but there wasn't any availability. Jay, the General Manager, assured us that it met the standard queen size measurement but I can assure you this is not the case. I have a queen at home. Technically there is only a... More

Close to airport less than 15 minutes we were there. Very clean and friendly staff. Small motel that looks like it had been recently painted. The room was small but for a one night stay it was perfect.
