“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2006

This was an excellent place to stay. The front desk attendants were very helpful and courteous. The pictures provided on the hotel's website are 100% accurate, I posted pictures of my room (2 queen beds) to show you just how accurate they are! Its newly remodeled and you can absolutely tell. I was in Portland for a Toby Keith concert at the Rose Garden and this was 4 blocks away, which is absolutely walking distance. I will stay at this hotel again, and I would recommend the same to you!

My husband and I just returned from a five-night stay at the Shilo Inn - Garden Quarter. We stayed here based on previous reviews and would agree with all the information that was offered. In addition to the complimentary breakfast, parking, cable t.v., high-speed internet connection, friendly staff, etc, there were small touches that we took note of that added to our experience...

Regarding the rooms...a seperate vanity area (with sink) from the (small) enclosed toilet/shower room was great for two people to get ready at the same time. Plastic-wrapped glasses placed in a built-in vanity-area shelf increased the sense of "cleanliness" in room accomodations. And, even a movable peephole cover on the door provided an extra feeling of safety and security once safely tucked away inside for the night. I would absolutely agree about the newly redecorated rooms, including a nicely-sized work station with comfortable chair, and large sofa in the same material.

The rooms on the "traffic side" of the hotel were relatively quiet for a metropolitan city, and any noise was quickly drowned out by turning on the room fan. It was much quietier than I would assume staying directly downtown would be! And, the room doors, well, they are as loud as any hotel when people let them freely slam, but can be closed quietly with minimal effort (sorry...my pet peeve!).

Regarding the staff...we arrived mid-morning on a Saturday and were just hoping to store our bags, since we had not yet rented a car, until we could check in. To our happy surprise, the clerk offerred that they had a room available, one that we had requested, and checked us in right away...at 10:00 am. We brought our things to our room and set off on our day in Portland...it was very nice.

Regarding the location...I must admit when I first "rolled up" to the hotel with my luggage (after taking the MAX from the airport), I was a little concerned about the location of the hotel and what may be inside of this little two-story building, between a high-rise retirement building, a dental building, and next door to a 7-Eleven. But, once I went inside, met the staff, and saw our room, my worries were quickly gone. Over the five nights we were there, we began to feel a part of the neighborhood, taking the MAX to and from town (after a quick five-minute/three-block walk to the station), returning to rest in the late afternoon, and then visiting one of the chain restaurants (Red Robin, Denny's, Burgerville, Starbucks) adjacent to the MAX station if we didn't feel up to going into town or the rain was too heavy to walk the streets of downtown for dinner.

The only semi-negative experience we had was, for some reason, our room keys needed to be reset every day. After being frustrated the first few days, we just incorporated the walk by the front desk for the 20-second reset into our routine each afternoon. We never figured out if we were doing something or if it was just the sesitivity of the hotel system, but nevertheless, it was only a small inconvenience compared to our overall experience.

I would stay here again and recommed it to travelers like us...people who like to be close enough to the sites and public transportation, but also like to feel like a short-term resident of the city for an affordable price, with high value, in a safe and easily accessible location.

Thanks to all the previous reviews and recommendations. It made for a wonderful stay in Portland!

We stayed six nights in September of 2005. The room was small, but extremely clean and tastefully decorated. The staff was friendly and the location was perfect for us. It's easy access to anywhere in Portland or Vancouver. No charge for high speed internet or parking, either. What's not to like? We'll be back!

My wife and I came down from Seattle last weekend. Shilo has a very good name and we have always found them to be very clean and fairly priced. We also like the complimentary food. We wanted to be close to downtown but did not want to pay for parking. This place was great. It was just remodeled and really looks nice. The staff has a smile on their face and is always willing to help. Everything worked (it's all new) and we had a very comfortable stay. We both slept very well on the mattress.

If your coming to Portland you should try this place for yourself. You won't be sorry.

During the summer of 2003, I stayed at the Portland Covention Center Travelodge. It was one of the worst experiences ever! The hotel is old and run down and there obviously has not been adequate maintenance. We had to change rooms when we first checked in because none of the lights worked in the room! Our second room was on the ground floor and there were more things wrong than I could have ever imagind. 1. Only one of the three lights in the room worked. 2.The door lock was semi-broken with obvious damage to the door itself. 3. The bathroom was filled with cracks in the shower, toilet and sinks. 4. The bathroom door lock did not lock. 5. There were hairs everywhere. 6. The corner of every ceiling was covered in spider webs and dust. 7. The window (don't forget that the room was on the ground floor facing the back parking lot) did not have a real lock on it but was kept shut with a wooden stick jammed in the bottom. 8. Blankets were covered with cigarette holes. 9. In room coffee machine had mold growing on the inside.
Overall, the hotel is a complete mess!! The area surrounding the hotel is not the greatest either. Trust me, spend a few more dollars and stay at the holiday inn!
