I accompanied a friend to Portland for a medical appointment and she chose University Place because it was the closest hotel to the Marquam Hill campus. The facility is older but clean and with extra amenities that make it a more comfortable stay...a spacious lobby, cookies at check-in, wi-fi, a fitness center and lounge if you need to unwind. If...

In the weeks before arriving I started getting paranoid due to all the poor reviews on the web and almost cancelled - but I am glad that I didnt. First; if you are booking into this hotel realise that you are paying for a budget hotel in a decent location and don't expect a 5-Star experience. Now while we didn't... More

I stayed here two nights to attend a conference at the convention center. The room was affordable, updated and clean and the hotel location is great. The staff were friendly and helpful. If you like to walk there is a nice urban pathway that leads to the central part of downtown with parks along the way, and walking to the... More

I only stayed here a night. WiFi is through the University and only available in certain areas. The room was clean. I don't think the building or rooms have seen an upgrade in over 25 years. The breakfast was included and was OK in dinning area. Parking was extra but convenient. The location was good for getting on and off... More

This place is just a holdover stop. We stay here a lot for sporting events at Portland State University. This last time we stayed in the deluxe wing and it was clean and updated. The television was a flat screen and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The only complaint is the parking fee. The breakfast is hot and delicious,... More

Despite the great location, right next to downtown, this hotel isn't the place you want to spend your nights in; Unfriendly stuff, No Wi-Fi, 15 dollars fee for parking, etc. Thanks to the the wonderful public transportation Portland offers, you can definitely book a room somewhere else and just take the bus/trolley to downtown.

The staff did an excellent job to accommodate us that's why I gave it two stars instead of 1. Initially our room opened to the outside. For $130 a night that's ridiculous. I've stayed in multiple cities with a great room for that price. Our room had toenail clippings on the floor. After that and opening to the outside I... More

Horrible customer service. Either we are not worth treating... or the front desk man is lazy and smug. He did not welcome, he told me everything I could 'not' do as a guest, and I asked about wifi. He said, oh... here it is, and there is breakfast. Not where though.... not when. The front desk man on March 25,... More

Overall appearance/facilities: I was highly disappointed with our stay at this "hotel" if it can even be called that!? It appears to be more of a youth hostel/student accommodation type place and you're reminded of this with the hoards of students who join you for breakfast. The place is outdated and well due a good refurb. Come on guys, this... More

Stayed 2 night, King Room Wasn't sure what to expect after reading the reviews so I was pleasantly surprised. It was easy to find, good parking, and out room was updated. Pleasant walk into the downtown core – not very far at all. Convenient, quiet location, with easy access entering / exiting the city. We had a no fuss check-in... More
