“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

The staff and manager, Tocia were the bestest in giving me help to arrange for a family reunion in Portland, OR. They were so helpful in getting all of the rooms for the family as well as getting a meeting room for our reunion and helping us with local restaurants and deli's for food. On top of all this, the rooms were very clean and the breakfasts were wonderful. We will stay here whenever we're back in Portland.

We stayed here on our way to Crater Lake. The room was big with a nice sitting area. We had a fridge and microwave which was perfect with a three year old. There isn't a restaurant in the hotel, but there are a few places to eat within walking distance. Burgerville is across the parking lot. The pool was nice and warm. My daughter had a great time. The room was nice and clean. The free breakfast was a nice bonus. This would be a great place to stay if you wanted to see Portland but don't want to pay big hotel prices.

We enjoyed our Labor Day weekend getaway to Portland. We love to get out there as often as possible to visit our son and his girlfriend. We love to stay at the Holiday Inn Express Portland South. The staff are always friendly and willing to help with any special needs we have. We have stayed at this hotel many times and the rooms are always clean and well cared for. We have never used the pool on prior visits, but this time we decided to get a swim in. The pool is very nice, maybe the best we have ever seen at a Holiday Inn Express. The management and staff obviously care about providing excellent customer service. I would recommend this hotel to any traveler who will be in the area.

We arrived into the Portland area around 12:30am on a weeknight with no reservations and just trying to find somewhere to stay. We were hoping to find a hotel that would maybe discount the room prices a little being so late, but no luck. However, the stay was wonderful! The room was clean, we were able to carry our 3 kids up and put them straight into bed. The beds were amazingly comfortable. I have lower back issues and am very picky about beds and often wake up in pain, but not here. I didn't even want to get up, the pillows were nice and I would stay here again just for the beds!! The staff was very friendly, at breakfast someone walked around to each table to ask how their stay was going, if they needed anything and to make sure everything was good. The breakfast was nice, especially with the kids, they loved making a pb&j for breakfast and the pancake maker was fun for our 9 yr old. Aside from the beds the pool is by far the most kid friendly pool at a hotel we have ever stayed at. It was warm, a first for most places we have been to. The kids swam for over an hour and our 3 year old wasn't cold at all. Yes there is no hot tub but those are too hot for our kiddos anyway. This was a welcome treat. If you are looking for a comfortable, relaxing, and fun place to stay with a family this hotel is a MUST! So glad we found it.

We stayed here on our vacation to Portland for 6 days. It was clean, comfortable with very easy access to highway. We chose this hotel for the price, free breakfast and having a fridge/microwave in our room. We stayed in a double queen room with myself, my husband and our toddler. The beds were comfortable (although a bit on the soft side for my taste). The TV was a bit fuzzy on some channels but channel selection was fine for us. The entire hotel was always very clean. I read the card in the bathroom that said to help save water put towels on the rods if you don't want them switched out - we did this but they were always switched out so we gave up on trying to help save the earth. The breakfast was good and had good selection. However, I'd suggest skipping the pancakes from the machine. They were rubbery, stuck to the plates and didn't taste much like a pancake either. Otherwise the breakfast was good - the eggs and meat switched each day and they always had biscuits and gravy that were very good, excellent hot cinnamon rolls, a large selection of breads/bagels/mini muffins, coffee, tea, juice, milk, yogurt, bananas and hot/cold cereal. They also had a basket of apples and oranges in the lobby all day long - I really appreciated this and grabbed a couple each day for us to have as snacks. In the evening they sometimes had cookies in the lobby as well. The pool was fine for our stay although it might be a bit small during a busy time. There was no hot tub but we didn't care about that. We got a free newspaper at our door every morning. I was a bit surprised that there were no recycle bins available anywhere. I put items to recycle in a bag next to our trash can - I hope they got recycled. All of the staff members we encountered were friendly and helpful.

We always appreciate hearing your comments about your stay. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We hope to see you again soon. The green program is new to the hotel and while we are continually training the staff on the procedures of it; if towels are hanging please don't replenish they still want to make sure everything is perfect on your return to your romm and tend to replace towels when not warrented. We will continue to drive home green program because we want to help the enviornment anyway we can. We are currently in the process of adding High Definition to all our televisions and hope you will be able to come back and experience. We have recycle bins in all of the vending roomms on all four floors and yes your items did get recycled, thank you for thinking of the earth as well.

This place was just okay, nothing stellar. Clean, the pool is okay as well, not the greatest and no hot tub. No bad experiences, just an okay place. We were pretty close to the freeway which was great for us.

We know you have many choices to choose from in the area so thank you for choosing to stay with us. We do provide rooms with Jucuzzi's in them and would be happy to have you stay in one of them next time you are here. The pool is unique in the fact that it is a heated, saline aad indoor. The saline has a much less choline smell and the salt helps keep your skin soft and cuts down on red eyes and itchy skin. The fact that it is heated to 79 degrees is a bonus. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us.

Most hotel beds are sub-par but these beds were so comfortable so I couldn't wake up. Nice big fridge and spacious rooms. Got a price of $99 for 2. It's worth calling as they might change the prices depending on when you call. Close to Bridgeport Village and freeway. Room was very clean.
