“DO NOT STAY HERE!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2011

I'm pretty sure someone was murdered in my room.... There was blood stains on the mattress and floor... And the room stank along with the customer service and the area was pretty bad! There is trash everywhere and shady business going on in the parking lot! Seriously do not stay here!

My wife and I needed a place for the night when we had plumbing problems in our house. This was nice and close , and hey i don't expect alot for $ 70 bucks a night but this was bad. The outside was good however the mattress was as thin as the pillows , i'm not kidding. Hell, i even slept in my clothes. microwave / fridge were thrift store old. cig burns everywhere , it was a smoking room what do you expect ? doom and gloom around every corner. Doom and gloom everywhere. I recommend the local park rather than this.

Overall this is an ok Motel 6. The staff was friendly. The rooms for the most part were in good shape. The beds were actually soft (as opposed to most Motel 6s). The bathroom had a shower/tub combo (again not common in this chain). The room did have a mini fridge and a microwave. They offer free wifi that works ok as well as a computer in the lobby. The motel has good freeway access and is a short drive to shopping/restaurants.

There were a few not so good things about this place. First thing would be the location. I had lived in Portland for most of my life, and I knew this was not the BEST part of town, but it seems like this may be a place where locals do their shady business. Also the parking looks like it could limited in the busy season. The room furnishings were run down and old (a hole in the bed spread, the fridge had stains on top).

Not the best place but it is a cheap stay and the beds are comfy.

  • Liked — the beds
  • Disliked — the area seemed shady to me

I arrived late and got the last room available. My suspicions were first raised when I noticed the couch and loveseat in "suite" were stained and dirty. I peeled back the bed sheets to reveal they were dirty, had cigarette burn holes, some unidentified washed and dried large red stain and dirty pillow case. Unfortunately, it was after 1:00 in the morning and I had been up almost 24 hours. I had nowhere else to go.

The next morning I found dried urine from a prior resident on toilet seat! I can take quite a bit, but this place was absolutely disgusting.

The morning clerk was very apologetic and refunded 50%. I know she was doing the best she could. I saw in their incident log drug dealing was observed in parking lot and customers were complaining of broken washing machine.

I don't expect a whole lot for $56, but I do expect a clean place. Definitely would not recommend this dump to anyone.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2008

This Motel 6 seems to be slightly nicer than others in the chain, apparently because it used to be a Rodeway Inn. The room I was in seemed a little larger than usual, and had a nice couch. Clean inside and out; huge parking lot, large spacious lobby that had coffee earlier in the morning than normal. Decent neighborhood; 7-11 across the street; outstanding freeway access; about 10 blocks to MAX (light rail) station. Considering the price, this one is a winner all the way around.
