Brooklyn Center Suites
Reviewed February 25, 2013

My stay at Brooklyn Center Suites has been a joy...very comfortable and close to my glass workshop at Bullseye Glass. Jane and David have created a "home away from home" for the Portland bound traveler. If you want a clean, quite and "almost like home" place to stay give this place a try.

Brooklyn Center Suites is a great place to stay for those wanting a kitchen to cook meals in. The suite was very clean and comfortable. While the room is not large, it's fine for one or two persons. Jane, the owner is delightful to deal with. While you do hear some road noise in the morning during rush hour, it's not bad. I thought it was well priced, easy to get to from the airport, and very close to grocery stores and shops. I will be staying here again next time I'm in Portland.

Had a great stay. The kitchenette saved me a ton of $ as I cooked in. Everything you need in the kitchen including first day coffee packs, dish soap, utensils, etc. It is on a busy street, but close to shopping. Great owners.

Ideally placed for Downtown Portland with an excellent bus service on the doorstep. The apartment is well appointed for holiday accommodation and Jane the owner could not have been more obliging. Would certainly recommend and we would have no hesitation in booking again.

We felt comfortable booking 3 nights at the Brooklyn Center Suites based on the favorable reviews on this site. We would have left after one night if we had not had to pay for 3 nights in advance. The room was extremely small for two people and the street noise was constant. Even with the bathroom door closed we could hear noise from the other bathroom. The owner was neither friendly nor helpful. As for the kitchen, it's necessary to move the toaster oven if you want to use the coffee maker. I burned my hand doing so. The contact paper is peeling from the cabinets and the knobs on the stove are cracked. Staying at the Brooklyn suites almost ruined our stay in Portland. Next time we'll stay in a chain motel or a nice hotel downtown. By the way, "suite" is misleading. It's a room.

Room Tip: There are only 2 "suites."

Kathy, we are sorry you didn't mention any of these concerns to us during your stay. It sounds like you were very unhappy, and as we accept payment at the time of arrival, we would have suggested other lodging choices in the area that may have fit your preferences better. And, of course, we would not have charged you. We want our guests to be happy, as it is our intention to provide clean, comfortable and affordable accommodations to visitors to Portland, but we know everyone's needs are different.

May we suggest you speak to the owners to see if there was a remedy next time you are unhappy with a lodging choice?

Thank you, and happy travels,
Jane and David Schue, Owners

Couldn't get a room in our "regular" hotel so booked here. A very happy choice! Clean, plenty of room for two, kitchen, and free parking! (it costs 16.00 a night at our hotel). The suite was quiet and so close to very fun neighborhoods. We spent a half day in the Sellwood walking and eating, lots of fun. Stay here, the owner is very nice, answers questions/emails promptly and is helpful. We will stay here again for sure.

I stayed here for a business conference early November with my husband and we found it to be the perfect distance from town. That is, it took no time to get to places, yet it was far enough away to avoid annoying traffic noises. It was also handy that there was a kitchenette where I could whip up something quick instead of having to waste more money eating out. A real time and money saver, this place is a gem among sloppy motels in the area - will definitely be coming back.
