Days Inn & Suites Gresham

Reviewed June 5, 2009

This was my first trip to Oregon. Ever since I watched the Goonies as a child I've wanted to visit. I finally did it! I booked my trip and left the husband and dog back in Chicago. I flew into Portland, rented a car and drove to Oceanside. I stayed in a beautiful little B&B there that surpassed my expectations. The next two nights I spent at another great place in Cannon Beach. My trip was going perfectly. I was amazed at how everything was falling into place.

Day 4 in Oregon found me at a spa for a few hours in downtown Portland before continuing on to the Days Inn in Gresham. I was on cloud 9. Then the storm struck as I arrived. I had to sit in my car for 20 minutes and wait for the rain to stop because staff members had their cars parked in the sheltered pull-up area for guests! I enter the building to an offensive B.O. smell in the tiny security vestibule that no longer gets used.

I was greeted by two teenaged girls. One of them clearly had no business being behind the counter. I think she was a friend of the actual employee just hanging out on the internet. The true employee checked me in and told me to take the STAIRS up to the second floor. UGH. I did . . . I lugged my bags up to the second floor and entered room 231. Wow! I've never experienced such a nasty hotel. The toilet seat was literally rotting . . . it had white missing in roughly 23 spots. Nasty. The air unit hadn't been wiped down in YEARS!!!! The walls had black, brown and red marks at every glance.

The fitness center is a joke! It is a 15x8 room with no air, a rotting door and 3 pieces of equipment piled on top of one another from the 80's. No joke. The pool and hot tub . . . ewwww. When you can see green on the bottom I think it's a sign to stay away!!!

I called Orbitz to tell them to take this hotel off their offering plate. They called the hotel and they've put me in a better room. The toilet seat is actually white now and the air unit is newer and therefore, less grimey.

Don't say you weren't warned. So much for a perfect vacay!

My 8 year old twin daughters were invited to a sleepover swim party at the Days Inn Motel and ALL 8 children were made ill from the swimming pool area. 3 children were hospitalized with CHLORINE GAS POISONING (1 of them mine) and the other 5 were able to recover without hospitalization. When the front desk was made aware of the situation they DID NOT close the pool.

Just a few additional pieces of information as to the events of this day.

The hotel was at 100% occupancy, and only those who attended the pool party became ill. We had many other guests swim in the pool and no one else reported being ill.

The pool was shut down at 11pm that evening and remained closed for the entire next day to insure that everything was okay.

Our local health inspector came by the following day and found the pool area to be in compliance with health department rules, allowing it to be reopened safely.

Good hotel for the area of Mt. Hood Community College. We there for a baseball event. We found the location and room to be very convenient. Ther are many choices to eat in the area or with a few moments drive of the hotel. This is one step up from the budget hotels but great value. Room was large with a refrigerator and microwave. Spacious room but small bathroom. Large vanity area outside of the bathroom with two sinks. Hotel was well used but clean and in order. Ample parking but be careful of storing valuables in care. We were victims of theft from our car. Hotel staff great and pleasant. Good room, good price.

Location is fine - price is fine, but there were some notable problems. There was a bag of trash in the closet when we arrived, so I don't trust the cleaning staff, and therefore don't trust the management. I am impressed at their commitment to providing the absolute cheapest furnishings and linens. The beds are not comfortable (not the worst, I guess), the towels are nearly sandpaper and the sheets look dirty. There is a decent TV, microwave and refrigerator. I just don't understand why they can't replace a few old towels and make sure they get all the trash out of the room before turning it over. Could be worse.

Rooms were spacious,nice and clean, breakfast could have been better, but was okay. Desk clerks were friendly enough, and tried to answer our touristy questions.

Very disappointed with the size of the room. The room was a queen bed (I believe) and small enough to warrant an "oh my God!" upon entering. Would not stay there again unless price was dropped to match size of accomodations.
