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... More

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,... 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!
