“Decent Budget Hotel in Portland Airport Area”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

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.

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. With feedback such as yours we are better able to learn from today’s travelers what needs are most important to them, ensuring we can always go above and beyond to satisfy our valued guests.

We are happy to know that you received a great deal on a bidding website. We understand that Price bidding websites such as Hotwire , you have to pre-pay before knowing which hotel you are placed into with no option to cancel. Sometimes as a marketing promotion, we offer coupon rates that are below our cost in order to have guests try our hotel and see how clean and comfortable our rooms are. We hope that in the future you would choose to stay with us rather than going through a bidding site and miss out chance to stay with us when you are in Portland Area.

We apologize for the busy breakfast area. We do realize that the breakfast area could get crowded. Thus, we have dedicated breakfast attendant to ensure the breakfast area is kept clean and well stocked though out the breakfast hours.

We are finished with the new front desk renovation and installed the automatic door for the lobby entrance. We also completed new Yours Truly Bedding Program by Choice Hotels on all of our Queen Rooms and hope to implement all of our bedding and the furniture décor improvement by end of the year 2013.

From all the staff and management at the Comfort Inn & Suites Portland Airport, thank you for staying with us! We hope to see you again during any future travel through Portland Oregon.

We had originally booked another hotel. That room was flooded and that chain booked us at Comfort Inns. The Comfort Inn staff is professional, most helpful and knowledgeable of their area. The Inn is close to restaurants and malls and has easy access to Portland and Washington State. Every member of the staff from airport pickup to registration is thoughtful, considerate and most helpful.

We enjoyed our stay at the Suite as we were tired from our road trip. We were able to check in earlier and get the rest we needed. The staff was helpful and friendly and the room was clean and up to its standards! The price was reasonable and I'd love to stay here again on my next trip to Portland!

The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. Just returned from 3 night stay and very satisfied. Location was very handy just off of I205 and Max light rail station walking distance. Anywhere in Portland was within 15mins away. Breakfast area was large and kept clean and breakfast is touch above the average for this style. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

THANK YOU so much for the wonderful comments. I am so pleased you enjoyed your 3 day stay with us. You are correct about that we are in a great location with Max Light Rail Train within walking distance and about 15mins to anywhere in Portland, I am also delighted that you had enjoyed our complementary full-extended hot breakfast. We do hope that you will stay with us in the future- and until then- wish you all the best always,

It's important to remember this isn't a four seasons hotel, and is a place to stay not a destination, but for being a comfortable place to stay while visiting it works very well. The room was clean, had no Oder, and had all working amenities. It is within walking distance of TRIMAX. It also is really easy to get to and from the airport which makes for a easy arrival and departure. The best part was the friendliness of the staff and the shuttle service to the airport which made for a simple stay. Would recommend has a home base of operations while visiting Portland.

We appreciate your business and look forward to your return. Please let the front desk agent know you are looking for places to visit. We always have great suggestions and can even give accurate directions. We enjoy being able to make your stay even more enjoyable with a great visit to one of our beautiful destinations. The MAX is a wonderful way to get around without having to drive. It can take you places like The Waterfront, Omsi, The Zoo, Lloyd Center and The Pearl District.

The hotel is convenient to find. The staff were exceptionally professional and helpful. We had to ask for help a couple of times during our stay were so very impressed with the help given us. We felt safe leaving our car in the parking lot. The beds comfortable and pool was nice. We will definitely stay here again.

Great sized room, refrigerator outdated and made a buzzing sound constantly, parking was good, quick check in , the iron/ironing board was very old and iron was hooked to the board with a cable and iron holder was attached to ironing board. Made it difficult to iron my tall husbands clothing with little room left on board and not much slack on cable.

This particular hotel has great sized rooms. Please feel free to let desk know as soon as you en contour a problem so we can move you to another room, change out refrigerator. The hotel and its staff never want you or any other guest to feel you cannot let us know what might be happening in a room. It is our intention every time to correct any issues reported in any room. We need your help to let us know what we need to do better for you to enjoy your stay. One of the upgrades we are making since we have become under new ownership/management is to replace those old outdated items with new; we are doing this a few rooms at a time so I am positive on your return stay you will see the upgrades and changes occurring on a daily basis.
