This little motel was wonderful! Close to city transit & close to a nice little coffee shop. The owners were wonderful and very helpful. The room was comfortable. We would definitely stay here again! Our room had a kitchen with a refrigerator and microwave. There is a Fred Myers just a few blocks away! For Portland, this is a little... More

This place is in a great location for groceries, morning coffee and restaurants, and right on the train line into Portland. Well kept and convenient. The Coop restaurant, down the street is new - great food and beer.

The parking lot was small. The walls were thin. Could hear everything. It was bad. Just because of the thin walls, I wouldn't stay here again. The room was clean and large, the beds were comfortable. Bathroom was smallish, but the shower was great. It was near where I needed to stay, so I was happy about that.

No frills, clean and affordable room. The managers were very nice and helpful. The grounds are beautifully and continually maintained. In a neat, older neighborhoods that was fun to explore. Can't beat the price, where more expensive hotels in the area are getting lower reviews. Would stay again.

It was a very basic room, but it was huge. Two double beds, and a twin bed in the same room. Beds were comfy and I slept well. I have stayed in worse and paid much more. We checked in at midnight and woke the manager up, she wasn't too happy with us. Sorry about that!

Room was ready before requested, and just as expected. Neat, clean and perfect base camp for our visit. Very friendly folks running the place and we had a blast being so close to the light rail. We had a king sized bed, which I was surprised to get, and I liked having coffee we could measure out rather than packs... More

We were pleasantly surprised by how perfect this motel worked out for us during our stay. We didn't need anything fancy and just wanted to be close to our son's home, so this seemed to fit. The room was very clean; the whole property is newly painted and updated. The staff is nice and helpful. The close proximity to the... More

We spent 2 nights here while in Portland. Our room was very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Accommodations are basic--no frills here--but the price is good. Being on the transit line was a plus since we didn't want to drive in Portland. The nearby grocery has many good food options. Ask for a room off the street.
