About the hotel itself. They serve a decent hot breakfast and in the evening have a wine/beer , soup and salad bar that was all complementary. (2 free glasses of wine, very cool) The front staff was friendly and helpful when I asked for directions. There is a free computer station I used to get the internet. The rooms were a bit worn but hey they are very well priced. Towels and bedspread were clean. The tap water tasted awful (a problem I have at most hotels).
The only problem I had was the heat/ cool window unit. I like to listen to a fan at night, every other hotel I've ever been has a fan option that stays on. For whatever reason the fan would turn on and off each time the AC kicked in. Man, I probably woke up 10 times during the night. Don't know if it was only the one in my room, but the unit did not have a fan on/ off button.
The other real bummer about my experience was the 45 minutes it took to get from exit 300 to 308 where the hotel is. (8 miles) We made great time up to Portland until then. It was 3:15pm on a Friday. I think everyone was trying to get over the bridge to Vancouver. The front staff told me that was not usual and she takes a different way in beside I 5 North.
