I have read some of the negative reviews on the Portlander and I am wondering what they are talking about. The Portlander that I stay at, 3 times since July, is a clean, friendly, helpful place. Our rooms are very clean, and the staff is very helpful. Our TV wasn't working and they came to check on it right away. The service in the restaurant is above par and the food is very good. We come down for medical treatment and on a previous stay in July our daughter had a bone graft in her mouth and could only have soft foods. The staff in the restaurant went above and beyond to accommadate her needs for a soft diet.
As for begin a truck stop never have any truckers bothered us in anyway, my son who is 7 loves big trucks and we walk around the back to look at the different trucks and the truckers are always very nice to us. My son asks them questions and they take the time to answer him. I never feel nervous there because even if one bothered you I believe that you would have about 10 others coming to your defense!
There are things for my children to do, we go to the exercise room, or the arcade, unfortunately we have never been able to go to a movie because they are mostly adult movies, since it is mainly a truck stop. There is also a bus stop right out front, and the shuttle to the Max
We are very happy with our stays at the Portlander and will continue to stay there, I just feel badly for the people who have negative experiences there, they should have asked to stay in the newer wing, where we always stay!
