Years ago when I used to live in Portland I always drove by this motel. I never had any idea of renting a room here. I stayed there last night for the first time (5/13) I must say I was impressed how much care was taking in upgrading this older motel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. My only concern... More

Rooms not clean. Found dog poop in room. Didn't know no room service during our 3days there. Freezer needed defrosted. Only way to watch TV was to leave cupboard door open, so remote would work. Great restaurant! Its ran by someone else.

Good location for NE Portland, not far from airport. But, you may not want to use this as a stop-over for the airport. Website goes to former owners. New owners have not taken over that site yet. Must call or write motel for information. Staff were able to accommodate my special requests when asked. New owners are re-modeling the motel,... More

Decent Motel where you can sleep close to Portland. Recommendable if you have a car especially. Clean and good price. The neighborhood where is located offer good restaurants and bars to go if you are too lazy to go Downtown.

Wouldn't normally be my 1st choice for location, but booked based on recent reviews, and they were right. Clean, recently redone room for a great price. 3 suggestions as you're redoing all the rooms; 1) That thing with the flickering lights under the TV, that's gotta go! Or move the TV's down so you're not staring at it from the... More

I suppose a place that looks bad could be bad but THIS place really surprised us. When we arrived it had a hundred workmen busily renovating the Motel in what appeared to be widespread mayhem. We asked if the Motel was open and they said yes so we went into the office to check and they had more rooms just... More

The service was quite terrible. I arrived late at night and it seems like the receptionist didn't need any customers any more. Hadn't I been too tired to search for another place, I wouldn't have booked a room there The room was okay, big and clean. However, the price was quite pricey for such a normal weekday. The big plus... More

I'm a budget hotel regular & have realized hotels with similar conditions can give me different feelings - this one made me a little sad but it truly seems to be the best value you can get if you want to be anywhere near downtown Portland. The shower was great. The internet was great. The front desk was pretty helpful.... More

Since the Airport was nearby, I needed a 2 night stay since my flight was delayed and I was impressed with the friendliness of the front desk. The two nights I stayed there I slept fairly well. The price was beyond reasonable, but there were no nearby shopping malls.
