Needed a place to crash for the night after a concert and all the hostels and other inexpensive hotels were booked. It was in a convenient location, we didn't find the surrounding area too sketchy. Comfortable bed, but the comforter and pillowcases had some stains. The towels in the bathroom had some light stains too, might have been rust from... More

Came here based off of reviews on this site. This place was rated as a great deal. I am not prissy nor am I a chronic complainer. I just wish someone had deterred me so I thought I'd do my part. The good: - The staff was friendly. - It was under 70 to stay there. - No known contracted... More

Sorry that your stay here wasn't what you expected, I'm not sure how you think you might have contracted a disease but I feel really bad that you think that. I do apologize for the lighting issue, I will talk to the housekeepers and let them know to check all light bulbs. This building was built in the 60's and... More

The original hotel that work put me at lost power for the entire day. Not waiting for the FedTraveler bureaucracy to work its way through (on the phone for 4 hours), I ended up here at 23:00 on a Monday night looking for a room. The manager and the maintenance supervisor were both really nice in getting me into a... More

It was already quite late after we'd finished dinner and we were desperate to find an inexpensive hotel. We even went onto a hostel website and then called AAE Portland, but they quoted us a price around $75 for two. After more online research, we discovered that Cameo had pretty good ratings, so we called the place and were quoted... More

The room was clean. But. NO TOWELS or glasses anywhere to be found in the room. When I made manager aware, he grumbled about poor help. Got me towels but never apologized. Kleenex dispenser was empty. No early morning coffee. Had to go across street to 7-11 for coffee.

The good: Clean; even the parts that don't show were dust- and cobweb-free. Comfy bed (queen). Walking distance (two blocks) to a GREAT Indian buffet and a quirky but very good cafe, which is literally across a small side street. You can see my reviews of those, too! The average: very basic, with a tiny microwave sharing a big armoire... More

I was really pleased with the remodel, and the staff is great!!! The rooms have been revived. This place went from being semi dumpy, to being a nice, comfortable, and still an affordable place to stay. Our stay here was really pleasant.

Not a pleasant experience. I made a blind purchase trusting that 2 star would mean 2 star. This hotel, while trying to improve, is still NOT 2 star. I wouldn't even rate it...yet. They are remodeling it appears. However, my curtain did not even cover my window entirely. The bathroom floor is like bamboo matting. I first noticed that there... More

Not much to look at from the outside and you have to pass through a slightly sketchy neighborhood to get there, but...for about $60 per night I got a clean, basic room with a king size bed (they upgraded me for free!) and a bus stop a 1/2 block away by which I could hop just 1 bus to go... More
