This is NOT a Hotel. While the rooms are updated, the rest of the property is in disarray. It is not a self contained 1 building hotel. There are several buildings that you either walk or drive to, then enter an unlocked open access hallway to access your room. Basically, anyone can walk right up and knock on your room door without ever passing hotel staff. The parking areas are inadequate and poorly lighted. Security is non-existent and the area leaves you with a feeling that you are completely un-safe staying there. I feel misled by the star rating and the photos on their website.
Service was not in-line with ANY other 3 star hotel I have ever stayed in. Front desk clerks were unkempt and abrasive. My room was not cleaned every day. When it was cleaned there was always something forgotten (towels etc.) I also had to wait to both check in and check out as there was only 1 clerk at the front desk at any given time.
Again, I will state this IS NOT A HOTEL! Hotels are expected to be self contained in 1 building with secure inner hallways to access guest rooms. Although the rooms at this facility face an inner hallway, that hallway is accessed from an open stairwell and doors that have NO locking mechanism (not even a door handle). I would describe this as a Motel 6 with granite countertops!
Better choices in the PDX area are The Embassy Suites and the Hilton Garden inn. I have stayed at both of these hotels before and they make the Red Lion look like a motel that should be rented by the hour!
