If you believe that you're getting a fair deal, think again if my experience is any indication. I don't typically post negative comments on establishments I visit as every person may have their own objective reasons. In this case I believe that I need to WARN others that you may not be getting what you believe you paid for. In... More

When booking your reservation through a third party and not directly with the Property or Choice Hotels.com we are sent your reservation info. through our PMS. The reservation that was sent to us showed you booked a room with one Queen size bed. Often when booking through hotwire or Priceline, you are not allowed a choice. There is an additional... More

Great little budget hotel with clean lines - no issues parking and located well - outdoor farmers market is only 5 min walk - Saturday market under the bridge is about a 15 min walk - easy to find and we'll run 😊

This is such a find and an amazing bargain in downtown portland! The room is big and clean, the bed itself was comfortable. It's quite basic but all you need for a visit! It's centrally located so walking to pioneer square or pearl district is 20-30minutes away. There is lots of public transport that can take you everywhere a bit... More

This place was right next to a food truck pod which was really great. The location was good, close to the river, public transportation, and the park blocks. The room I stayed in was kind of worn and it seemed pricey for the ambiance. The price you're paying is more for the location, so if you're going to be out... More

My son and I were in Portland and wanted to save money on lodging, but at the same time stay close to downtown. The downtown Econolodge was a great choice! The manager, Rita, was extremely friendly and welcoming, giving us good suggestions on places nearby to eat and where to catch the public transit. It is so nice to see... More

Look, it's an Econolodge! The rooms were spacious, the bathroom and shower decent size. The king bed was comfortable along with the pillows. The hotel is a bit dated but it's clean with your expected amenities. The carpet in our room definitely is aged but the room was without any offending odors. The plus for this hotel is it's location... More

We were looking for an affordable hotel that was close to the river, close to public transit, and close to Portland's interesting neighborhoods. Location-wise, this hotel was excellent. It was also a great place to stay in terms of cleanliness and comfort. Staff are friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Loved this place. We literally walked all over Portland and never moved our car from their parking lot. Neighborhood seemed very safe and everything walking distance. Front desk staff were very helpful and kind.

We recently stayed in a King room in this Econo Lodge and found it to be in a perfect corner of town - a short walk from the Portland Farmer's Market, Keller fountains, waterfront, food trucks, easy bus routes, etc. The staff were always available to help with last-minute changes - they brought us a roll-away bed (comfy!) when we...
