This small, unassuming motel has a great location, tucked away near the University (and several modestly priced food trucks serving modest fare), but within easy walk to everywhere in the city centre (we're both near 80yrs old). Parking is reasonable at $10 per day. Rooms are clean, water is hot, and beds are fabulously comfy. This was our fourth stay.... More

Nothing fancy, but generally in good repair and just what we needed for a night before our conference in another hotel. The best thing about it is that it's next to a collection of good food trucks! It's also very easy to get to from the MAX train. The owner was quite friendly and helpful.

I was very pleased with staying at the Econo Lodge in downtown Portland even before arriving. Rita at the front desk was very helpful on the phone when I wanted to add another room to our online booking. We had also told her that we were arriving by Amtrak earlier than the official check-in time and she was able to... More

We were at OHSU hospital until 8:30 P.M., not knowing if we were going to have to stay or not. When we got to leave we needed a close hotel, to sleep over, without driving too far in the dark and rain. We called and a polite young women made our reservation. When we got there, we found that she... More

We arrived from Union Station at 10 am somewhat exhausted. They were gracious enough to provide us a room on the spot. The next day we were being picked up by friends at 1230. Again, they allowed us to stay in the room well past checkout. The room was no frills but comfortable; great for the price without question. The... More

Very friendly, welcoming. Excellent location near the centre of Portland - no need for a car. Everywhere within walking distance. Rooms clean. Managed by a lovely couple. Good value for money. Very glad we found it.

As another reviewer mentioned - it's an Econo Lodge, not the Ritz Carlton. For under $200 in the city, it was the perfect match for us. Our stay was for one night before traveling to the coast and we found it to be clean, comfortable, and ideally located. The college campus nearby was a pleasure to stroll through on our... More

My wife and two daughters spent three nights at the Econo Lodge on our trip to Portland The best part of the hotel is it's location very close to the MAX light rail, the Street Car, food trucks, and PSU. The price was right as well (we stayed for $140/night). The neighborhood was quiet when we stayed though I felt... More

We were here on July 4th during the blues festival so naturally all of the hotels raised their prices for this weekend. Felt overcharged as this is a real basic hotel with a limited continental breakfast in the lobby with one table only. A $10 charge for parking felt like we were ripped off a bit as in the other...
