Look folks this is not a great hotel by an stretch of the imagination, in fact it has more in common and resembles an incarceration facility. It's certainly no beauty in outward appearance and does not get a lot better on inspection. But to be fair I might be marking it down a little far, as we stayed in one...

stayed over the weekend, room on 2nd floor. quiet. clean. one elevator was at one end, otherwise several stairwells were easily accessible. Older motel but everything worked. I loved the water pressure in the shower and sink. rooms had microwave, fridge. A/C worked better after first day. room stayed nice and cool while it was in the upper 90's outside....

Need an East side location at a good price? This place fits the bill. Easy walk to coffee and donuts and other breakfast options. The room was clean and recently renovated. The road noise wasn't bad. The folks in the adjoining room were noisy briefly, but otherwise the room was peaceful for a good night's sleep. We walked all over...

Overall, I would state that the hotel is overpriced, in a not very nice part of Portland, the room quality was poor, and the people at the desk will consider a request for service to be an imposition. I would not choose to stay there again even if it was free. We chose the Eastside Lodge because of its location...

This hotel is so beyond rude and disrespect that I don't even know what to say. We had food leftover from our breakfast that we didn't get utensils for. I called the front desk asking if they had anything that we could use, and the person at the desk was EXTREMELY rude. He told me that there was a convenience...

I absolutely loved my stay at the Eastside Lodge. For me the location was perfect –– close walking distance to the Oregon Convention Centre, but also close walk over the bridge to downtown, and all the great restauraunts, bars and shops in the neighborhood. Check-in was great, I found the owner very friendly and welcoming. The room was much much...

This hotel, located on Burnside in southeast Portland is minutes from the heart of downtown Portland. The area surrounding the hotel is a quirky area with one of Portland's best restaurants (Le Pigeon) just steps away. There are local coffee shops, retro clothing and vintage curio shops along Burnside with access to the downtown just over the Burnside bridge and...

I stayed here for a few nights. I think this hotel represents good value in Portland, if your looking for a relatively inexpensive place to stay. However, it certainly has some shortcomings. It is a low end motel, with a very dated premises. My room was clean, but very musty. It should also be noted that parking is advertised as...

First off, the front desk staff was very considerate and pleasant. The hotel itself is a bit older and dated. There is some type of upgrade going on but they haven't hit our room yet. The cable tv is intermittent and wifi is free and slow. Room does does have fridge, microwave, iron, and safe, but no hairdryer. The bathroom...

This was a nice motel. Looks sketchy from the outside, but it's because it's old. Rooms and very clean, but small. They were in the process of remodeling when we were there, so I'm not sure what they will look. The owners are very nice and helpful.
