Motel 6 Gresham City Center
Ranked #7 of 11 Hotels in Gresham
Reviewed September 18, 2012

The Howard Johnson in Gresham is old and tired, but clean. We stayed there Sept. 9, 2012. It is a no frills, cheap place to stay. The towels were worn out and one had holes in it. The bed wasn't great, but we managed to sleep. It was quiet, which was the most important thing to us besides cleanliness. The front desk clerk was friendly and quick. They provided a fridge and coffee in the room, but the free breakfast wasn't ready at 6:30 when we were up, so we went across the street to Elmer's. It was an OK place to stay to save money.

Room Tip: If you want a cheap place for a night, stay here, but I wouldn't want to stay more than one nigh...

This motel was conviently located for our over-night stay before driving up the Columbia River. The staff was very helpful, and friendly. The room was clean and large, also very quiet. There is a very good coffee shop/diner across the parking lot and a Starbucks across the street. Basic continintal breakfast included in rate.

If you choose a $59 a night hotel and are a minimalist you will like this hotel. We prefer to spend our money on other things trip related vs. sleeping and showering. No fridge, no clock but we didn't care. Close to everything for driving and a fantastic restaurant called Nicholas in town. Clean room and bed was average. Starbucks across street and Mt. Hood down the road. Ave booked another weekend in August. Can't beat location.

Room Tip: If you choose a $59 a night hotel you will be pleased. We wanted it for a clean, quiet room to sleep...

The towels are visibly dirty in the bathroom -the pool is closed due to maintenance at 630 even though nobody is working on it- there was mold in the tub- service was alright - there were religious affiliations in the room - overall I wouldn't stay here again unless I absolutely needed to

I travel to Gresham, Oregon every month and stay at Howard Johnson Hotel all the time. The family owned staff is very friendly and my room is always very clean and they always welcome me with a big smile.

Torn carpet, cigarette burns in the sheets and blankets. Lots of road noise. The "pet friendly" room was not human friendly. It smelled like a wet dog! The only advantage is that it is a convenient location to see the Columbia River Gorge.

Booked two nights in advanced per reviews. BAD,BAD,BAD This place is DIRTY carpets need to be replaced. Beds are well used . appx 1100 road miles on our trip when we arrived in Gresham. No refunds when book on line, would have left fast IF we had another place to go . Breakfast was bad. The desk man made the waffle for you because the iron was broken. Dry and could not eat it. We ate at Elmers next door the only saving grace for two days. We Booked a 2 week trip at 7 motels gess 1 out of 7 not to bad.
