We just stayed one night before flying out of Portland. It was close to the airport and felt safe. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We were bumped up to a suite with full size fridge and oven for around $70/night. The person working the desk (possibly the owner?) was extremely friendly. The wifi worked great and the beds... More

Saw previous reviews and wasn't disappointed. Newly remodeled room, flat screen tv with lots of channels, and a very friendly owner. Not to mention, $72 for a room is hard to beat. Microwave and fridge in the room, close to the airport. Did I mention friendly owner? Definitely!

Owner-operated, so service was excellent. Rooms are clean, with fresh paint, good mattresses and memory foam pillows. We were upgraded to a suite upon arrival, which had a complete kitchen but no serving or cooking utensils. He made arrangements for our early (430am) taxi, but somehow we didn't get our wake-up call. Use your phone or in-room clock for a... More

The Nordic Motel is one of those places that you want to remember for next time. The price is right and the family ownership shows in the attention to detail. I was able to drive a few blocks to the light rail train station and park there all day for free. The Red Line train to down town was easy... More

On Sept. 4, 11:15 a.m., I called the Nordic Motel to make a two day reservation for my son and I. We're travelling to Portland for my son to see a doctor regarding corneal transplants. After about 8 - 10 rings, a woman answered the phone. I told her I was calling to make a two day reservation. She asked... More

Clean, comfortable, and tasteful rooms that are very close to the airport. Very good value especially given the quality of the rooms. The neighborhood looks mildly sketchy so the well lit parking lot was appreciated. My only minor quibble is that our one BR room featured a full kitchen, but there were no plates, bowls, utensils, or glasses available to... More

You cannot ask for more from a small family run motel. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. The rooms were quiet and it was convenient to the airport. The room is small which is ok since so is the price. The TV is large with many more channels than you usually get in name hotels. A microwave and... More

Very strong dog pee smell in the room. The hotel lady said "they don't allow dogs" and there is nothing they can do. Also there is "cleaning deposit" which we have never heard of in other hotels/motels - we don't know when we will get it back.

We made reservations online and we were pretty tired after a long drive and traffic through Portland, so we were very pleasantly surprised by the room. It was very quiet, nice memory foam pillows, good TV, DVD and CD players. The room looked like it was recently redone. We met the owner in the morning and he was very cordial.... More

Great motel near downtown for a great price. Our room had a full kitchen and was spotless. From the minute that we pulled up we could tell that the owners took tremendous pride in their property. No detail was overlooked. Very updated, especially in the kitchen area. Would recommend to those traveling to Portland!
