Memorial Day weekend can be a hard time to find a cheap hotel in Portland. Particularly on Saturday of that weekend. Hence, I stayed at Comfort Inn & Suites for one night before moving to a hotel near downtown the next day. I found a good deal here on Hotwire for under $50 a night after coupon code.
I was concerned that the hotel location would be out of the way since I did not have a car to get around in. Fortunately, the location was not a huge issue. The hotel is conveniently located about three blocks from the Parkrose/Sumner Transit Center MAX station. Make sure to take the Red Line as that is the only MAX train that serves this station. It is one stop from the Gateway station so if you need to change MAX trains, you can do so there.
From the station, you walk down the road to your left on NE Sandy Blvd. You will need to cross two street lights. This hotel is next to Elmer's Restaurant and a Best Western hotel. If you are driving here, the location is great as it is just off I-205.
The hotel lobby area is under construction, so there is a temporary front desk setup in front. In back of the front desk, there is a window visible into the pool and hot tub areas of the hotel.
Was given a room on the 3rd floor away from the street. While there was no street noise to worry about, there are trains that run through this area which you can hear at night.
The room is decorated nicely and has many amenities. Some of which were not offered at the supposedly better hotel that I stayed at the following night. It has a chair to relax in by the bed and the room has a microwave and fridge. There is also free Wi-Fi and cable television with HBO. Interesting things to note about the room include the water sink being separate from the bathroom and the free Wi-Fi name for the hotel not found under the name Comfort Inn. Look for the name matrix05 instead.
There is a free breakfast offered from 6-9 am daily. The breakfast here is not as good as the one that I had at a Best Western (not the one next door) in Portland that I stayed at a couple weeks back. The breakfast room was packed, so I had to scramble to get my meal. They do have hot items like eggs, sausage and biscuits with gravy in additional to continental breakfast items. There was nowhere to sit, so I ended up just taking my meal back up to the room.
Given the price I paid, I thought that my stay at Comfort Inn was good. It is a bit out of the way, but the MAX station is close by and there are a couple buses there as well to get you to downtown and around Portland fairly quickly.
