“Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2005

For a very reasonably-price motel, La Quinta has a lot going for it. We were pleasantly surprised by our room and by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The rooms have been recently re-decorated and were clean and comfortable. We had a microwave, refrigerator, hair dryer, ironing board and iron. The short walk to the Max line made getting around easy. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Not a fancy motel by any means but more than adequate. The nightly charge included a very adequate breakfast each morning.

If a nice pool is as important to your family as it is to mine. Beware, this pool is not heated. Our kids did get to swim, but I wouldn't go in with them, it was way too cold for me.

The location of the hotel is excellent. Within walking distance of MAX Light Rail and in the "free" zone. Also can walk to mall, eating, and convention center.
Hotel is finishing up remodel and the room I stayed in was completed. All furniture new and walls have been stripped of old wall paper and replaced with paint. Very fresh look. Outside of hotel looks a little dated but inside is great.
Staff was really great, too. Very helpful and friendly. A+ in this department. Overall, I would stay here again because of the newly remodeled rooms, great rate, and friendly service.

I just spent two nights at this hotel. Results are mixed. It's not flashy, it not a rat trap. It's a solid, basic place to sleep and keep your stuff while you're out exploring Portland.

The Good Very convenient location. It's a block from the MAX light rail, which you can ride for free to downtown Portland, or for $1.60 to/from the airport. Convenient freeway access. There are a few restaurants within a block (Starbucks, Dennys, Red Robin, Burgerville).
And you can walk to the Lloyd Center. Free on-site parking which was nice since the surrounding blocks are metered. The room was fine, the bed was fine, the towels were fine, the bathroom was fine. The staff was very pleasant and accomodating. The continental breakfast was fine (fruit, fruit juice, hot drinks, hot cereal, cold cereal, muffins, doughnuts, waffles, and so on).

The Bad The hallways had a weird disinfectant smell. As long as you didn't hang out in the hallway, this was okay. The lights in the rooms were so-so. Between the flouresent bulbs and the low watt incandecent bulbs, reading at night was a bit of a challenge. Not all rooms have bathtubs, some have only a shower. For some people it doesn't matter, but my wife likes to take a bath at night to relax and the first room we got didn't have a tub. The hotel is located between two main streets, so noise is an issue. You do hear vehicles going by, their horns and loud radios. There are quieter rooms that face the interior parking "courtyard". Unfortunately, we had a exterior room facing the street. Not enough hot water. Showers in the morning were fine, but in the evening, when my wife wanted to take her bath, the water was at best lukewarm, and quickly chilled after that. This was really annoying. If I were in Timbuktu or something, sure, but not downtown Portland USA.

Overall I would stay here again because of the convenience, free parking, decent breakfast and functional rooms. However, I would want to be guaranteed a few things in advance: -a quieter room facing the courtyard parking area, -a room with a bathtub, and -hot water 24 hours a day. With these things, I would have given the hotel 4 stars instead of 3.

I booked a room at the La Quinta because they ran a coupon special in our local paper for a night at the hotel plus four tickets to the zoo or Science Museum for $99. I thought that was a good deal but was dissapointed by the room. The room smelled like deodorizer as if it was previosly a smoking room converted to a non-smoking room. The towels were yellowed (were they supposed to be yellow or white? I couldn't tell). The shower tiles were mildew stained. The bathroom fan ran but did not vent and the moisture stayed on the surfaces all day. The bathroom was tiny. There were mollys in the walls where they had moved pictures and some had little wads of tissue paper in them. We also couldn't miss a big yellow glop of something gross on the wallpaper. We rented a VCR but the entertainment center was positioned so it blocked the ac outlet. I wish I had known the condition of the hotel ("pardon our appearance as we undergo a change" -- was on a card in the room) before I booked it. The other La Quintas had the same special and might have been in better shape.
