Cant wait to come back and comfortably stay. The place had a nice texture to it to make me stay. Wasn't a fan at first but it really showed a great potential. Next time I have a buisness stay, this is the place that will have my oath to be here.

We stayed here on our way south and we're so pleased we booked a night on our trip home. Very easy access off I5. Clean, comfortable bed, friendly, helpful owners. On our way home we had a few extra hours so took the train into Portland which was very easy and relaxing after driving. We enjoyed eating at the New...

This hotel is great. It's on the max line that goes straight downtown. It's close to New Seasons Market, Fred Meyer, Panda Express and lots of bars. The owners are very friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable. I stay here every time I go to Portland. Book it!

For the price in Portland you always get what you pay for and this independent property was worth it. Nice staff, clean parking lot, clean lobby and rooms may not be the Marriot(yuck) or the Hyatt, they do the function of what they are supposed to do. A place to sleep, shower, and rest. There has been much effort to...

Very clean and simple rooms. Perfect for people passing through, or who need a last minute place to stay. Can't beat the price, and the staff was wonderful. Bathroom has obvious signs of wear and tear, but was kept clean and tidy.

This was a good little motel that I would recommend to any one going to visit Portland Oregon. It is on the yellow and red MAX light rail line with a stop not even one block from the hotel. I stayed here with my three sons and my mom. We stayed in one room with two doubles and a single,...

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.
