My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights on the last leg of our cross country road trip. The main attraction for us was price, we were willing to be ok with a subpar room. Well, we were wrong. This place is a steal. The rooms are very clean. The beds are firm and comfy, as are the pillows.... More

From the first stay through my recent visit this weekend, I have always been pleased with this motel! The owner is not only extremely personable but has a passion to make his motel the best. He is constantly adding touches to make it even better with some recent remodeling that gave it a warmer decor. The beds and pillows are... More

I was going on vacation and decided to get a room close to the airport rather than having to commute in the morning. I found the Nordic on trip advisor. The reviews were correct. Extremely clean, very comfortable, friendly owners. This may have been just my first time here, but it will not be my last. I would recommend staying... More

I stayed at the Nordic Motel for a 2 day conference that was in downtown Portland. All the positive experiences expressed in other reviews were true of my stay. The room was very clean and the furnishings in good shape. All appliances, outlets, and bathroom fixtures worked perfectly. Comfortable bed and pillows, working wifi and television. The parking lot was... More

Stayed in a two bedroom unit and have to say that the place was better than I expected. The rooms were very clean and very comfortable. The area is quiet and, while not close to downtown, is still close enough to things like places to eat and groceries. This is not a luxury Hotel, sure, but the staff was just... More

Trying to find a place to stay in Portland the night before Thanksgiving can be a trying experience. However, remembering a tip about the Nordic Motel mentioned years ago by a friend, I took a chance and made a reservation. I am so glad that I did, because Nordic Motel is one of the nicest, cleanest places I have ever... More

I have stayed here twice this year on business for a total of 18 nights. The staff are nice and friendly and the rooms are very comfortable and spotless. No request was unanswered and Nordic will become highly recommended to our other personnel. Well maintained and good security. A++

The room was on the smaller size, but had everything that I needed. The bathroom is very small, but again, contains everything necessary. The bed was comfortable, the pillows were good, sheets nice and clean. The floor was clean, no dirty socks when walking around without shoes. There was a fridge and a microwave, which was a bonus. The best... More

Very nice room, staff friendly and respectful. This is an older Motel, quaint, but clean and comfortable. If you're looking for 5 star don't buther, uf you're looking for a good deal for a nice place to stay come here.

Excellent place to stay when visiting Portland! Extremely clean! Very friendly owners! Quaint, comfortable, and very pleasant motel! You will not be disappointed with your stay. We were very fortunate to have found this motel. We will stay here again if we are fortunate to visit Portland again.
