“Big rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

This a family place. We have a family of 5 and the room was just the right size with 2 queen size beds and a pull out couch. Free breakfast and dinner snack was a good addition. The pool was not huge but relaxing, the jacuzzi and sauna were also nice as work the workout room.

We stayed here based on the reviews that they had on TripAdvisor. After having excellent experiences in Newport, we were a little disappointed. We requested an upper floor room, but when we checked in (at the 3 p.m. check-in time) we were told that they only had rooms ready on the first floor. The room itself was nice, but between the people above us who began stomping around at 6 a.m. and the kids who were allowed to run up and down the hallway, it was hard to get decent sleep. We weren't able to get near the breakfast buffet because of the long lines, and the business center had only one working computer. Be advised that the only way to or from the hotel is the I-5, and traffic can be a nightmare at times.

We GPSd to the wrong oxford suites, but the front desk in Gladstone checked for other accommodation in the city and then organized us a wonderful rate at their Jantzen Beach location. Their kindness after a long day of travel was very much appreciated. We (4 seniors) checked in and were delighted with the quality of the rooms. We took our free drink tickets down to the bar, had snacks and then ordered pizza - no more driving that night. The following two days we explored various gardens around Portland and then the Columbia gorge, returning each night to relax and plan dinner. The front desk organized a shuttle each night to drop us off and pick us up and two different great restaurants. Wonderful find.

You can't beat the price. Our room was very clean but starting to show a little wear and tear. Checking in was great as the reception was very friendly and gave us some helpful tips. It is not centrally located to the touristy things to do in Portland so you do need to have a car to get to places. The complimentary free drink and salad/soup in the evening is nice but very ordinary and generic. The free breakfast is a nice thought but be prepared to wait an hour in line with lots of children. Was not worth the wait. All being said, I would stay here again as it was clean and the price was right for traveling through on a road trip. I would not stay for a special occasion.

This chain is known as a family-friendly chain, and the Portland location is comfortable, a good deal, and close to the city. However, situated as it is on Hayden Island, there's no way to avoid the 5 Freeway bridge over the Columbia River, and this gets really congested on weekdays. We were neighbors with a very noisy family, and we called the front desk to please ask them to quiet down. 30 minutes later, same noise (bumping, thumping, loud voices), followed up by a 2nd call down to the desk. Family finally broke up their party and returned to their own rooms, but kept up the noise in the hall. I guess the walls are a little too thin. Breakfast buffet and pool can also get very noisy. Not one to point fingers (as we were traveling with 2 kids ourselves), but just beware that the hotel feels at times like a Carnival Fun Ship.

The Family Double King suite was an especially good choice for a family traveling with teenagers. The breakfast choices were good and the evening bistro soup/salad bar was also a good option for us. We appreciated the courteous and quick shuttle service to the MAX metro Yellow light rail train line at the Vanport stop. Thanks to Pam and the rest of the front desk staff for their information and recommendations.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 days and the room was nice and clean. Althought there's always a long lineup, the breakfast was awsome among other hotels that provide free breakfast! They have a few secured entrances so you don't need to walk far if your room is further away from the lobby. You can just park close to the entrance closest to your room. The hotel itself was on an island right next to Washington so it's a shorter drive for us from Seattle. However I feel it takes a bit longer for us to drive around the city of Portland. This issue is actually very minor with the good price and value of the hotel. I would recommend this hotel if you don't want to stay in the town center and would like to have a relaxed stay. We got the vouchers for light dinner but we didn't have a chance to try because we always got back at about 11pm. So I have no comments of the light dinner.
