We stayed here on a saturday night, the worest customer service I have ever had. The front desk man was very very rude. I stay in motels 6 times a month and have never been treated so poorly. We reserved a smoking room (thats all thye had). When I arrived I simply asked if he had any no smoking rooms avalible . He was very rude, i actually told him to be "nice" I was just asking if it was possible. The room was very outdated there are no hair dryers and the room was pretty bad over all. I will never stay at another econolodge again because of this experience. I is worth a feew extra dollars to stay at a holiday inn or marriott. I just want people to be warned before they get a room here.

Thank you Econo Lodge Milwaukie/Oregon City for a great stay. Your staff is welcoming and your manager Kash went out of his way to make us feel at home. Your hotel is well-kept in all ways and is a perfect 10 in my book! The hotel is not large and is very simple but the large clean rooms & price point make this hotel a sure winner. Great stay! Mike Harris (Kansas City MO) Bob's Red Mill is only 3 miles and is a must when visiting the area!

Room Tip: Hales next door for a great hot breakfast!

OK, this is just an Econo Lodge. The breakfast is small, but nice facility. But oh, my, the rooms are so sparkly clean, the owner is also the clerk and a busy man; he sells the detergent for the washing machine. When I went to find him he was doing the ironing! Oh, right, did I mention that there is a washer and dryer on premises?? For guests. It does take quarters but owner has change ready.
And the rooms are like suites, bedroom and "living room".. refrigerator and sink and microwave.

Stayed here because I had free night with Choice points. This seems to be the lowest level of their chain of hotels. The location is not the best. On an unappealing retail strip with lots of car dealers, etc. However it is well away from the freeway, so no traffic noise. The room had a spacious front kitchenette area but other than that it was very basic. The bathroom smelled a little off I believe due to some caulking that looked mildewed. The shower was great though. Breakfast was meager - definitely continental only. Front desk staff was fine. For a short stay this would work, but I think there are better options in the area.

Great rooms, Great rate! Close to food and shopping. We have had to come up to Portland at least once a week for business and several times i book with cheap rooms .com the same day. And we always seem to check in late as well. The front desk is always waiting for us and has our information all done. Check in takes maybe 5 minutes.

Just started staying here at the Econo Lodge Southeast, and have found this hotel to be affordable with always a good nights sleep. I usually stay in Clackamas but never get a good nights sleep with all the freeway noise. This hotel is a hidden gem! Only 2 miles from Clackamas & a short drive to Downtown Portland Oregon, it's my hotel of choice from now on in Portland Oregon. The rooms are extra large and the staff is always very friendly. My company always books for me in advance and gets a special rate on their website, almost 20 percent off! Now that's a good deal I would say. Overall it's a great budget hotel for a smart traveler...

We stayed here several times. The last time we did they did not have the room we had reserved by phone and we had to take more expensive room or find somewhere else to stay after a long trip. To avoid a recurrence we pre booked online the next planned visit and our vehicle lost the transmission on the way. We called the hotel and told them we would be unable to make it and they insisted on keeping the payment for two nights. At a time when the vehicle expenses were already a heavy burden, their unwillingness to not charge my debit card was immoral, greedy and mean. Completely uncool!

Room Tip: do not stay here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for your review, I'm very sorry to hear of your inconvenience with your reservation at our hotel. Due to your type of booking, which was done through a third party site, the rules and policies are out of the control of the hotel. I suggest you make a booking with our hotel directly or on our own hotel website to avoid these problems in the future.
