When I wanted to stay in the Portland/Vancouver area over Christmas, I was looking for something that was under $100/night, had free breakfast, a fitness room, and free wireless LAN. The Phoenix Inn fit the bill, and I found a great "winter special" on their website for $64/night. The hotel is very close to the airport, in a safe neighborhood, near drug stores and Starbucks, and is walking distance from several restaurants.
When we walked into our room, I was immediately struck by how large it was. It had a huge area dedicated to the double sinks, making it really easy to get ready in the morning without getting in each other's way. There is also a seating area separated by a half wall. It has a third sink, a mini-fridge, microwave, couch, side table and L-shaped desk. Because of this, I was able to read my book after my husband went to bed without disturbing him.
The fitness room was very cramped, but was fairly well-equipped. It had a treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike, and dumbells (from 2.5-25 lbs). It had a TV, but no windows or access to water.
The breakfast was plentiful, with pastries, scrambled eggs, oatmeal, cereal, fruit, french toast, juice, coffee, etc...
Overall, my experience at this hotel was top-notch. As long as I can get a room for under $100, I will always stay here when I visit the Portland/Vancouver area.
