We travel mostly on a low budget. I had read the reviews about this motel but until I experienced it myself, it was hard to believe how great it was at such a reasonable price. This was the first time in ten years that the mattress and pillow were wonderful and we didn't wake up needing a chiropractor! Full kitchen,... More

Nordic Motel does it right. Clean comfortable, well planned rooms at good price. Well managed. Easy to get room and good service. Not luxurious, but comfortable. Great value. Stayed on two different occasions.

Just spent a night here and felt compelled to review. This is a fantastic little motel that is in an unusual spot. While not right downtown it is easily accessed from the highway in the eastern part of town. I don't think i have ever stayed in a cleaner room with so much attention to detail. Everything is new and... More

The Nordic might be in a less trendy area of Portland. However, compared to what is located nearby, it is easily one of the best values in Portland. Book via the hotel - room options are better that way and given the price of the rooms you will certainly get more for your dollar. Room was very large with full... More

I concur. This place is very budget friendly, clean (enough), and more amenities than you can bake a cake for. It's close to the airport on a shady street, but definitely a diamond in the rough. We just needed a quick place to Nap for 5 hours during a layover, but I could easily stay here for a week's vacation.

Visited here for one night. The room was clean, staff friendly and pace was very up to date and safe looking. We were given a free upgrade to our room which was fantastic. Would highly recommend this place to any traveler, but particularly the budget traveler obviously.

Nordic Motel was a most pleasant surprise. Probably not for those who require elegance, it is definitely a star for budget travelers. This motel has been completely renovated, inside and out. It is clean, fresh, spacious and comfortable. It is not particularly convenient to downtown Portland, but doable, and it is near the airport. Morning coffee is available in the... More

We took two rooms as we were two couples traveling together and both rooms were very clean and updated. WiFi signal was strong and fast. Beds were comfortable. Shower was very nice...in hotels, often shower heads are dingy and gross. Towels were thick and soft. Highly recommended!

Clean and newly renovated. Close to the airport as well as an easy drive to the eclectic parts of Portland. Front desk was very accommodating and they have very good coffee. We enjoyed our stay the first time so much that we stayed there on our way back to the airport. Unexpectedly awesome!
