My husband and i chose to stay at the Viking motel in Portland on the recommendation of friends when we needed a place to stay while awaiting the birth of our granddaughter. It was convenient to the freeway and therefore very easy to find. As another reviewer already wrote, the owners went out of their way to take care of our needs and make sure we were comfortable and felt welcome. It was very affordable, had a microwave and mini-fridge, and was within walking distance to a wonderful natural foods store and the MAX. A great find in PDX!

This place is truly the best kept motel secret in Portland. The same owner for more than thirty years, he takes personal pride in the rooms, the customers and making sure you have a wonderful stay in PDX. A patio area in the back sports a BBQ for customers to use and there's totally clean washer and dryer (coin operated) for convenience' sake. The maids show special attention to the rooms which are well-appointed and feature AC and cable TV with WiFi in every room. Great location right near the MAX and near local restaurants and grocery stores. For the money which is modest, you won't find a better place anywhere in North Portland. No wonder people keep coming back year after year! Five stars for this place!

My husband and I have been visiting family in the Portland area for the past 10 years staying at a range of places, Finally we have found the perfect place to stay. The rooms are comfortable, clean and lovely. The location is convenient. The price is remarkable. Moreover, the owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and see that our needs were met. This is a fantastic motel!

I stayed at Viking Motel for 3 weeks with 2 friend, so the 3 of us would share one room with 3 Kingsizebeds. The room had fridge, coffeemaschine, TV, wireless, mircowave, telefon, just all you need! The location of the Motel is just at the yellow "MAX" line (public transport) - which brings you downtown in no time and there is a "New Seasons" in 3 min walking distance so that grocery shopping is easy even if you have no car. If you have a car, there is always place to park on the Motels paking lodge. And if you stay as long as we did it is very convenient, that there is a washmaschine and a dryer for your laundrie in the Motels facility that you can use with coins (quarters)...
The owners are very nice people and can help you out with whatever your needs are...
Very recommandable!

Room Tip: Good service, good price!

We found this motel online and everything we read said it was wonderful, so on our last trip to Portland we decided to stay. The people are friendly and from the way the parking lot looks it is always busy . The room we had was clean and very comfortable - the owner is available if there are any problems. A great value.
