Very clean, well appointed units. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the facility. I would stay again if I'm in the area. A perfect place for that one night stay on the road. Wifi was sketchy, but good cell coverage. The parking lot is very well lit and I felt very comfortable there.

We stayed here for several nights when visiting family in May. It is on a busy street, but ask for a room on the backside of the property. It is very clean and well equipped. Our room had a small kitchenette and plenty of room. I would recommend this if you don't need all the amenities of a large hotel.... More

This motel that is reminiscent of a family owned accommodations is simply a true find. We stayed for several nights- to tour Portland. It is very close to the airport.The room's colors are calming in a moss green and complimented with white linens on an uber comfy and new mattress. The room is immaculate and came with a mini kitchenette-... More

Chose this motel based on the reviews here. This motel is a great place to stay. The rooms are very clean and the staff and owners are very friendly. Nordic sits on the bus route and this takes you to the transit center for easy travel anywhere in the city.

We stayed here one night while traveling through Portland. The room was clean and bright, comfy beds and good showers. The managers are very friendly and helpful. There was a fridge and microwave. We had good wifi and free parking. We will definitely be back.

Comfortable motel on the East side of Portland. We stayed over 3 nights on our trip south. Clean rooms, comfortable bed, friendly staff, Fridge and microwave a bonus. Close to airport and railway line, but as previously mentioned, not motels fault. On a practical level we did not find this an annoyance and slept well. It is 30 minutes away... More

Simple and yet refreshingly fun color schemes. Very very clean rooms. Full kitchen. Great location for our needs. Price right! Highly recommend. My wife and I stayed there for a wedding nearby. Would stay again. Loved it.

Booked the Nordic because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. Arrived after 10 PM, front desk lady was charming, room clean, beds very comfortable. Front desk was able to supply a plastic knife I needed. In my case, the A/C noise overpowered any traffic or train noise so none of that was an issue. Interestingly,... More

Stayed 4 nights during our road trip, & found the motel to be neat and clean. Basic facilities were adequate and new looking. Bed comfy with memory foam pillows. I guess most places in this area will suffer from traffic noise, and train noise, so it isn't the motel's fault; I booked here to save money, so this is the... More

Small room and bathroom are the only complaints I could come up with, everything else was excellent. Close access to airport and shopping, cozy, clean and quiet room, comfortable bed and pillows, friendly staff.
