I would not have stayed there, but the reviews were very good. Even then, I was surprised at how nice the property was. Everything was top notch. The first thing I noticed was the exterior. fresh paint, fresh asphalt, new shingles, fresh landscaping. then I noticed all of the guests seemed like business people or nice families. The interior of... More

Searched TripAdvisor for reasonably priced hotels in Portland area. Planned for 2 nites. High ratings. When i arrived checked in but not provided with booked room. After talking with front desk she was quite adamant that i was incorrect. I called booking agent and he indicated he would correct. When i went back they were apologetic. They had confused me...

This was a sweet, well-updated old fashioned motel. We needed just an overnight before our flight from PDX and this place was perfect. East find, quick to the airport. The room was small, but all we needed was a bed and a shower - both were newish and clean - and clean is very important to me!

We stayed here after a reservation mix-up at another hotel. Staff was super nice and helpful. Room clean and spacious. Towels softer than at the B/B we stayed at the night before. Close to airport , they even arranged a cab for us to the airport. Neighborhood not great , all in all a good experience .

Nice Clean spot near the airport. Economical with friendly owners and clean sheets. The train tracks are across the street, which didn't bother us. Free HBO and Showtime. The place was remodeled recently so its pretty clean.

First of all, this place is clean. The linens are soft and good quality. We stayed in a single queen sized bed room. I read the complaints listed by other reviewers, complaining about the noise. I always have a fan or white noise on, and once we turned that on, I couldn't hear a thing outside. The neighborhood is iffy,... More

In the eternal search for hotels that inexpensive yet clean, comfortable and kept up...this one fits the bill! Stayed for 2 nights. Neighborhood is just ok but have no regrets. Very well maintained...you can tell they care.

Spent one night here before heading to the airport the next morning. Our room was very clean, nicely equipped, and comfortable, with nice-looking, modern decor, which merited the 4 stars I gave the motel. In contrast, the location, though convenient to the airport, was not very inviting. Few options for eating nearby, though we did find a place down the... More

Great location near Portland Airport. Also near railroad tracks and noisy rail activity late into the night. Staff very friendly, room extremely clean. No counter space in bathroom. However, we were only there about 12 hours total and only needed a clean room overnight before our flight. Would definitely stay there again.
