We (2 adults, a 6yo and a 9yo) spent 5 nights here visiting friends in Portland and Hillsboro, and we were very satisfied. Finding a place with separate bedrooms -- divided by a door no less -- for under $100 a night is a real find. Include the full functioning kitchen and free parking and we were sold. We caught...

The proprietors are very friendly. The rooms are newly renovated and clean. Plenty of parking. Close to the expressway. I even had a good jog in the nice neighborhood down the street. Yes, I definitely recommend this place. It is a great value.

Stayed here over for one night, after looking for an inexpensive stay in Portland, and this seemed to have the best of the reviews at this price point. Let's be realistic, you will not get 5* luxury but I was really impressed, it as better than I had expected Checkin Friendly, efficient. Advised me on deposit and explained WIFI Room... More

This hotel is very conveniently located 10 from PDX. Stayed here for two days. REALLY< REALLY nice. It was very clean and comfortable. The whole property has been remodeled with care and nicely done. Owners are on site and friendly and helpful. I will be staying here again when I'm in the Portland area.

This motel had a tree surgeon come in with his loud buzz saw and start working at 9am on Sunday morning. When we complained they did not even apologize. It was awful. It is far away from anything major in Portland.

We arrived at the Portland Airport late at night so it was nice to know that this motel was only 10 minutes from Budget Rental and very easy to find. Although there is not someone on duty at night, we were able to check in after ringing the bell. My daughter and I were visiting colleges in the area and... More

I've stayed here a few times this past year and have found the rooms (1queen bed) to be clean, comfortable, and updated. The location is about 20 minutes from downtown and about 10 to the airport. I would recommend the Nordic to a budget conscious traveler or family.

This was a great spot for us to connect with family for a quick weekend visit. We wanted to explore the waterfalls and trails along the Columbia River Gorge and the Nordic Motel provided easy access. We also did a little city touring, but this wasn't our main focus so being right in town wasn't as important to us. The... More
