“A GREAT Hotel”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

I would defiantly go back to the Oxford Inn, it was VERY nice. Very good rooms, very clean and modern at a VERY good price. Excellent hot buffet breakfast that's a little different every day and soup and salad in the evenings with free wine or beer! It has a great pool, and workout room and sauna and steamroom. It's basically the greatest hotel on earth. Get the "Romance" package for an extra $30 and get a really nice bottle of wine and two glasses and a bottle opener and chocolates and a tote bag. We stayed two nights before heading on to Seattle and it was just what we needed.

Stayed 4 nights while visiting in Portland. Very comfortable hotel. Safeway and Hooters close by. Great on \ off freeway access. Hotel did not disappoint. I had stayed at another Oxford suites in California and this was even better. very spacious comfortable room for 2 with a King bed. We chose to leave the window open instead of the AC unit which really was not very loud. It was quiet outside, no problems sleeping. Staff very friendly, took our chances on an early check in and no problems, that was a great relief, as we were tired from traveling. Commuting into Portland took only a few minutes, only once hit some traffic going into the city about 10 am. No problem every coming back to hotel. Breakfast \ evening reception excellent. I used the business center computer to print out our boarding passes without a problem. Will stay here again.... Thanks Oxford Suites!!

We stayed here for three nights and as expected the suite was very comfortable and clean. We have stayed many times at the Oxford Suites at various locations and have come to expect quality, this was no exception. The morning breakfast is great and the evening reception is also very nice.

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.

Room Tip: Ask about the darn AC/ Heating unit fan

We stayed at the Oxford Suites for 4 nights when visiting Portland. Surprises awaited us from the minute we checked in. The clerk told us to hurry to our room and come back down so we wouldn't miss the soup service (5:30 - 7:30 pm) and salad bar (5:30 to 9-ish). Then she gave us 2 drinks coupons per night so we could have 2 glasses of wine (4 choices) or beer or one mixed drink. Our room was well appointed, clean and comfortable. There is a pool, hot tub and fitness room. A decent breakfast is served each morning, included in the room rate. We were trying to use public transportation so the hotel offered their shuttle service to take us to the MAX rail station and then they also came and picked us up when we called them! All the staff including the shuttle drivers were so helpful and interested that it made our stay a real pleasure. This was a real value for money hotel!

The hotel has a great location. Easy on & off I 5. I stay there when going to events @ PIR. Always enjoy the full Breakfasts. Have even stoped for breakfast when not staying there under $10 dollars & very good & quick. The evening food & drink is good for a light meal. There may good places to eat near ask the hotel. Rooms clean & nice, not fancy but good for the price. There is a nice place to walk by the river ask how to get there.

My stepson was getting married and lives in Portland. We had a large group and needed rooms for 1-2 nights. The number of people changed constantly over a 4 month period. I would call and each person I had on the phone was more than accommodating regarding our constant changes.

When the weekend finally came, several of us arrived on Friday. Stephanie greeted us at the front desk with smile. She was well aware of room bookings and could not have been more helpful. We needed to find a nail salon and she immediately directed us to one and suggested we could take their free shuttle and be dropped off and picked up. What a pleasure it was to not have to get in the car again after the drive to Portland!

Our room was clean, the bedding was lovely, and the windows opened- a feature I really appreciate since these days many hotels do not have windows that open and I feel like I am stuck in fishbowl with no air! The wi fi was easy and worked great. They recommended a pizza place to us that delivered and the pizza and salad were excellent. We used our drink coupons and enjoyed a most interesting conversation with the bartender who had a lot of knowledge about Jantzen Beach and Portland history. Breakfast had hot and cold options which was nice and included in the price of the room.

We had rented a limo van to take us to the wedding site and then to the reception site (on opposite sides of Portland. In case you don't know, Portland has major "sprawl" and is not an easy city to navigate). It turned out the reception site was close enough to the hotel that we were able to again utilize their free shuttle. They picked us all up in the evening and couldn't have been friendlier and more helpful with the giant boxes of food and beverage the caterer had laid on us.

This hotel may be a little bit on the dated side but you cannot beat the service, cleanliness and overall comfort. Stephanie deserves major kudos for putting up with all our changes over the course of the summer. And she couldn't have been more helpful when we arrived. This was a logistically complicated event to plan and attend and I am so appreciative that they helped reduce my stress level. If you're in Portland and looking for a reasonably priced, easily locatable, friendly, comfortable place to stay, this is your best bet.
