“Better than expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

I ended up here through Priceline. I flew into Portland very late and needed a space to sleep before heading out of town the following morning. It's not really that close to the airport and can be confusing to find since StarK Ave. runs one from the expressway away from the hotel. Yes we did see the bars and strip clubs nearby but there were no lost souls wandering in the parking lot when we arrived. Being so close to the interstate I expected it to be noisy but the room was quiet. The room was overall clean and the price was fine for what we needed.

This place is exactly what the price entails. Drug and prostitute establishment. Just one block down from a strip club. Shady individuals in and out. Perfect. The room was cleanish. Good location near interstate. Continental breakfast of packaged danishs. Tiny televisions

We had a great stay at the Chestnut Tree Inn. All of the staff that we interacted with were incredibly friendly. The location is very convenient with plenty of restaurants in walking distance, and it's right on the I-205/I-84 interchange, so getting anywhere into Portland was a breeze. The price was right, especially for a weekend stay. Got into town plenty early of the check-in time, but was still able to get my room right away. The bed/pillows were not the most comfortable in the world, but not the worst either. The room was a good size, but could have been laid out a little better. Had a fridge in the room, but no microwave. Had to go to the lobby to re-heat food. Provided breakfast was pretty standard, oatmeal, muffins, and pastries. Coffee is served all day though which is nice. Overall, a good experience. I will definitely consider staying here again in the future.

We stayed two nights at the chestnut tree inn. We were looking for a value priced motel, and that's what we got. It was satisfactory on all counts. It was easy to find, right off the freeway, and the traffic noise was audible, though not enough to complain about. The place was satisfactorily clean, but had a "smell". It was easy to get to downtown Portland, but there wasn't much in the way of attractions in the immediate vicinity. A minimal breakfast was provided, including coffee, some kind of juice, packaged sweet rolls, and instant porridge. The staff answered our questions. Towels were clean, and replaced after one day. They say you get what you pay for, and this inn follows that adage. If all you want is a satisfactory place to stay while visiting Portland, this.could be it!

Room Tip: All rooms face the same way. We had a second floor room, so had to carry belongings up stairs.

when we pulled up the hotel did not look attractive on the outside. I had a hard time going in but we ended up checking anyway. The first room we had smelled like smoke then they immediately moved us to an upstairs room. For the price of the hotel the breakfast was what years and getting school breakfast is in the morning they could've had a better continental breakfast it is included. Although the the all though the staff was highly courteous and always printing directions around town and how to get around. The rooms are very spacious and bigger than then the normal hotels and the quiet roomy anf yet they had a flat screen TV my husband enjoyed. I would stay there again for the service of the girls gave me above and beyond.but I would not stay there for the price the hotel into some improvements and if that was done I would be glad to stay for a cheaper price. But it wasn't a very convenient location to get to things around town.

Our room was not ready by 3pm like it should of been. Water pressure and temperature were terrible when showering. Breakfast is nothing but packaged Sweet rolls. Fruit that is old. Wouldn't recommend! Beds are terrible.

We stayed here late September of last year while heading back to Canada from a very long road trip. The weather was cold and we were tired of camping in the frost so we jumped online as we were heading into Portland and checked out rates for nearby hotels.
The Chestnut Tree Inn has great rates, it is easy to find, close to restaurants, and the rooms were spacious, quiet, clean and comfortable. Exactly what we needed after nearly three weeks on the road.
I would definitely recommend this motel.
