The day I checked in the front desk staff could not have been more rude, incompetent, and unwilling to help with anything. The staff I talked to in the evenings were nicer and more helpful. The room is reasonably clean, but some of the lights didn't work, the sink didn't properly drain and vending machines didn't work. The hotel is... More

I found this place on Google as we needed a place to stay for one night in Portland. I liked the place a lot but my wife was freaked out by how "shady" it looked and by the fact that she saw a spider on the bed. The place, from the outside, in particular the corridor outside the door looks... More

Great hotel with a really nice breakfast! Clean rooms. Close to downtown. Right across from some type free transportation. Staff very friendly. Workout room small but has several cardio and free weights. Standard hotel room otherwise. Only stayed one night. Nice pool.

We stayed in a deluxe king with microwave, refrigerator, t.v. and coffee maker. It was a good deal compared to other places in the area. It takes about 30 minutes to walk to the Pearl District, 20 minutes to Nordstrom and a few minutes to the waterfront by Tom McCall Park. The parking is good and reasonable compared to other... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while we explored the city of Portland. The rate was good and the location was right next to public transportation. The breakfast in the hotel restaurant was very impressive! The pillows were flat, the faucet handle broke and there was a couple small bugs found in the room during our stay. The rooms basically...

Stayed here for two nights in a room with King Bed. The hotel is located on the south end of downtown, about a 20 minute walk takes you to center of town. For our purpose the price and location served us well. The bed is not very comfortable but for the price it is what you would expect, it's a... More

Stayed here for two nights on route to Seattle. The hotel was very easy to find and in a great location. We were able to walk easily into the centre and down to the river.

This hotel costs half of what most of the major hotels do and there is a reason for that. The decor hasn't been updated in 30 years and the beds may be older. I just touched the bed and it caved in. I can't imagine what my back is going to feel like after three days in this place. I... More

We visited here in June of 2016. This hotel is a great value if you are looking for a comfortable but relatively inexpensive hotel while you explore Portland. When I book a hotel, I'm mainly looking for something affordable with a comfortable bed and close proximity to the center of the city. The decor is dated, but everything was clean... More

I stayed here as part of a conference (so my room was reimbursed) in late June. It was a warm couple of days, in the mid-80s, and the A/C in the hotel room was very loud and very inefficient. The hotel is quite run down, my non-smoking room had what looked like cigarette ashes near the sliding glass door. The... More
