This is a great location for the convention center, but the facility is rundown and poorly maintained. There was no wifi in the rooms, so all guests had to go outside to get a signal. Our room had a door frame clawed and ripped off the wall, and a sink that never drained properly despite repeated reports. Bedspread full of... More

When visiting portland, I always stay near the convention center for the great access to mass transit and easy walk to the Waterfront Park. For my last trip all the hotels in the area were booked but the Motel 6. I was a bit hesitent but booked it anyway. I got both a good nights sleep and a warm shower... More

As I had a good experience in Motel 6 Anaheim, I safely decided to book in another trip. My overall experience was very bad because: 1. The bed was terrible and the matress has a big hole as I have never seen in any other hostel, motel or hotel. Also the furniture was too old, the image of the television... More

My husband and I needed a basic hotel room as we weren't spending much time in the room at all. Our room was standard "Motel 6" but I must say the bathroom was clean but in bad condition. Our room was non-smoking but still smelled like cigarettes and all the furniture was old and pretty worn down. The front desk... More

Driving truck I spend layovers at various motel. 6 this was barely better the. The worst I've stayed at. That one out of Troutdale OR only charged 49.00 versus 110.00 parking very limited. If at capacity you won't have a parking spot. The max system is right out front with a stop so that is one huge perk. The shower... More

I've never felt the need to write a review before, but felt I really needed to for this hotel. First room they gave us 115 smelled terribly of cigarette smoke even though they are non smoking. He quickly and nicely changed our room to 117. It smelled the exact same, smoke and musty smells, just not as bad. Figured this... More

Very nice and professional staff but the rooms are disgustingly outdated and need to be repaired. Room 112 coat rack is hanging off and it's just not worth 120 a night. Also I don't know what they use to clean the floors and toilet seat but my shoes stuck to the bathroom floor and our butts stuck to the toilet... More

We picked this hotel for its proximity to the max and the price. BAD DECISION. Our door would not stay closed unless we double-locked from inside. If you are outside you can open with a push, no turn of knob necessary. We told front desk and they showed us how to slam it well enough to stay closed, which we... More
