“Decent hotel with a view of Mt Hood”
Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here 9 years ago and again this week. Very spacious room that was clean and quiet. Very convenient location IMHO near the expressway and downtown.

The breakfast was average but the service was good at the hotel

Stayed December 2013, traveled on business

Stayed here for two nights. The hotel is very clean and the staff was very friendly. It is only a $6.00 cab ride to the Pearl District. The room was very clean and well furnished. The television was in HD. Bathroom was very spacious. I would stay at this location again.

This hotel was comfortable with great beds and bed linens..plenty of pillows...slept like a baby. The room was clean. Shower was hot, but not much water pressure. Pizza delivered by recommended place nearby was delicious. The breakfast will do...pastries were yummy and the coffee was hot. I liked the way the parking was in an interior court making it seem more safe for our vehicle.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room that doesn't look out on a wall if I were you.

This is a standard Holiday Inn Express hotel. The quality and service are what you would expect. The location looks bad at first, as it is so near a main road junction, but in fact it is a short walk into some really interesting parts of town.

I have stayed many times at this location for many reasons. It is walking distance to the NW Alphabet District - great eateries nearby as well as being close to the Freemont Bridge and the highway taking you anywhere fast and easy. I spoke with Cassie - someone I had never dealt with before. She was SO sweet and professional. She was amazing and gave me the best deal she possibly could. When my Mother and I arrived Cassie greeted us so graciously. She made sure to provide us with the quieter side of the building on a higher floor. When my just turned 82 year Mother walked in the room she said "Oh my what a lovely room"! We settled in and she had the sleeper sofa. She kept saying how comfortable the bed was, not like a sleeper sofa that is usually all "springy and lumpy". I loved the privacy of the room as their was a "divider" between the living room and the King bedroom. I did not even hear her snore! The room was SO clean, smelled fresh, and the sheets did not smell like bleach - a problem I have had at several other hotels. They offer many pillows too - 2 that say "soft" and 2 that say "Firm". Mom wanted to buy these lovely, billowy pillows!!
A+++ I love this Hotel and was sorry I could not visit their wonderful pool and hot tub this stay as it is amazing. Thank you for a memorable stay!! I look forward to coming back to such an amazing hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back of the hotel so as not to hear housekeeping in the morning. It would be a hi...

This is a standard holiday inn and when we arrived we were a little concerned at the location on such a busy road network. However it is only a short walk to the downtown area and there are some good value restaurants and shops and it was a lively and bustling area on the Friday night. We were also able to walk from here to the main centre of Portland - about 30 minutes.
Our room was quite small compared to the usual US experience and our room faced on to a wall, but the amenities are good and it gave us the opportunity to get some laundry done on our travels. There is a small pool and gym but unfortunately on the second day of using it had to be asked to get out as there was unexplained dirt on the bottom!
There was a good choice for breakfast and the waitress was very helpful and friendly. Coffee was available also throughout the day and drink machines are on the corridor.

Hi there Janie024!

Thank you for taking some time to review your recent stay with us. Vaughn street does infact seem very industrial, at first glance. I am glad that you were able to see our neighborhood for what it truly is- a fantastic shopping and dining area. Please feel free to ask our front desk staff during your next reservation about the different room options that we offer here at the Holiday Inn Express. Again, thank you for your review and we do hope to see you again soon!
