I stated four days at the University Place in the 1st. week of May 2015. The carpet looks like if it wasn't clean for a few years. The counter sink is very, very small. Receptionist need to work in their customer service skills. They treat guests like if they are doing the guest a favor; no smiles, no acknowledgement when... More

Looks depressing from the minute you step in. Has recessed lighting with no lights or dark lights and just yukky looking. Three staff helped me. Two young women acted like they HAD to be there and hated their job. Not chipper, not upbeat. A young man who helped me though (Islander or Hispanic) was super friendly and did his best... More

Stay away from this hotel. We found live bed bugs and blood spots in both beds when we got up in the morning. We looked as I had squashed a bug on the sink and it was full of blood. We also found one in the bath tub? My friend was able to capture a live on and took that... More

No hot water, no wifi in room, indifferent staff, pay to park, you better have a good reason to stay here or you will be kicking yourself for choosing this place. I am writing this as a sit on the rock hard bed.

The hotel staff were very nice and was located across the street from family members but otherwise I would not have stayed here. The hotel was run down and not very clean. Wifi was supposed to be available in public areas but I couldn't connect. fortunately had a smart phone to look things up. I wouldn't recommend staying here.

The check in was pleasant. They give you the best chocolate chip cookies! The room was just fine. And the gardens surrounding the pool were well kept. The Grill was fantastic! I had one of the best burgers! It was also a bar which was nice. The help was always pleasant. They refreshed the room sending us into our second... More

This hotel is very conveniently located in the downtown area adjacent to campus of Portland State University. There is an ample parking lot. In the inner courtyard there is beautiful pool with adequate seating and tables. The complementary breakfast buffet in the large dining room includes a variety of hot and cold items. If you are gluten intolerant you can... More

There are an awful lot of negative reviews here but we did not expirience any of these problems. The staff was friendly and also helped us print out bording passes for our trip. The room is pretty basic, its got what you need for your stay. The only real issue I saw was that the carpet is about a decade... More

Our fault that we didn't outright reject the room. No excuse other than road weary. Look at the pictures and tell me what management is thinking. The WIFI is so bad you have to get out of bed and walk close to the desk to get a connection. The carpets are stained, the air vents are filthy, and the furniture... More
