I don't think there's a better value for the money in Portland. The rooms are clean, recently remodeled, and although not the largest, are quite well-appointed. Beds are excellent. Rooms feature microwave, refrigerator, TV with DVD player. The staff are kind and helpful, and the grounds are immaculately clean. It is evident in even the smallest detail that the management...

Of Course it's not the RITZ, never expected it to be, but is very clean, neat and tidy, it was my second stay in a year, and it was just as nicely kept up or even nicer than last time. Ask for a room away from the main road, if possible. Refrig and microwave, were clean and came in handy.... More

We stayed here for a night in between travels. Easy access to the airport, but not far from downtown either. The room was comfortable, and very clean. The staff were very helpful. I would definitely recommend the motel if you are looking for a reasonable stay.

A great little place - especially for the price! Its not a Ritz, but is perfect for anyone that just needs a place to stay! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in the Portland area. They have wifi for guests which is a bonus, a flat screen television with cable.

Wasn't good or bad, just a nice little hotel with the usual ups and downs. Smelly smoke smell was in my room for the duration, which I didn't like, and it was very loud. But room was clean and staff was nice.

Definitely worth the price.. Clean neat rooms, friendly and prompt service. Yes it can be noisy as it is on a busy road but that generally does not bother me. Do take advantage of Oregon's free sales tax to indulge in shopping at the Woodburn outlet mall (30 mins drive)!

I liked the room a lot. The bed was comfortable as were the pillows, which is a sign of goodness to me, but I had a problem with just one thing. I was supposed to bring my service dog, but changed my mind at the last moment due to circumstances. Now, I booked the room at the beginning of April... More

I think that you have to take these glowing reviews with a grain of salt. Yes the Nordic Motel is very clean and has a great price, but it is located in a lousy area. Across the street is a drive up coffee kiosk with Baristas in bikinis! There is nothing close by that looked inviting as far as restaurants.... More

We were a little leery before we arrived, with the relatively low price and the location. We found a clean, comfortable and affordable room. Trains, planes and automobiles made it a little noisy, but it was not that bad. We were able to navigate all over the east side with relative ease from this location. Would definitely stay there again.

A must stay for any type of traveler; friendly staff, large super clean, frig and microwave in room, free coffee, neat grounds and close parking. Also there is FREE wifi! Furnishings and space comparable to our Worldmark Timeshare; but better they provide daily maid service! Easy access to food, stores, shopes, local sights and landmarks. You can't to better!
