I booked my two-night stay at motel 6 in Portland over a month ago for this trip. When we arrived, they put us in a smoking room with cigarette burns and stains all over the bedding and the bathroom light did not even work. We tolerated it for the first night because we had no other options. At 7:30 the... More

Very helpful staff. Clean rooms. Free parking. Bus to city outside. The reason for the poor review is that the motel being on the main road, has no quiet rooms. I was moved to a room at the back but I still found the traffic noise too loud. No coffee making facilities in rooms. The motel has internet but you... More

I stayed here for a night as it is close to a place I will be doing several trainings. They called before arriving to see if I would prefer upstairs or downstairs. I wanted quiet and safe. The rooms are very simple but also very clean and inexpensive. Beds are comfortable. If you show your registered AARP card you get... More

Dog friendly and close to Reed where my daughter attends. Just a place to crash. Upgraded rooms. Free coffee .If you are a non smoker , do not stay in building #2. We were in a non smoking room adjacent to a smoking room. Terrible smoke smell and listened to a smoker cough all night. The place was packed. Management... More

The staff called me to see if I was going to show up to not be charged for a "no show" on my credit card. When I got settled in the room got a courtesy call to see if I had any issues with the room. Staff was also helpful to steer me in the right direction to attractions and... More

What I liked about this hotel is the hotel's staff who helped me to check in fast and explained little things to explore in the city. Also, the location is very good, not too far from Hawthorne and Division street. However, the paid-internet service is very bad. The bed sheets are not as expected. The towels are harsh and not...

You stay here not because of the room but because of the location; it's one of the cheapest places in this location, very centrally located and a couple miles or so from downtown. Shower (no bathtub) is really tiny. Mattress was really thin and pillowcases were a bit too small for the pillow. Spent two nights here around the 4th... More

When I booked my room at Hotel 6 for 6/09/2015 I accidentally booked it (online) for 6/08/2015. Of course I was a no show. I did not receive a call from the Motel 6 staff. If I had, we would have discovered pretty quickly that I had made a mistake when I was booking, and that I would be turning... More
