“An excellent value if location is not important.”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Booked a weekend stay using priceline name your own price ($45/night) and it worked out well. We were mostly there to see family in North Portland, so the location wasn't a problem, but if you are trying to enjoy portland, this place is pretty far north. Our room wasn't ready when we got there even though they told us it was and gave us a key. Took them a few tries and a couple minutes to work out, but it really wasn't a big deal in the end. Staff was friendly and attentive, just that not everyone was on the same page about the status of the different rooms.

They told us that they served breakfast in the morning-- I was expecting a handful of stale breakfast pastries and some coffee, but they went all out. Eggs, sausage, oatmeal, fruit, waffles, yogurt, cereal. The breakfast was great, but you have to wake up a bit early-- things were looking good at 7, but when I came back at 8 most of the food had been eaten and staff was frantically trying to replace it.

Beds were comfortable, lots of pillows, a hot tub that I didn't bother to check out, spacious rooms, nothing especially pretty about the place.. Overall, it was a little better than what you might expect from your average Best Western, but still a Best Western-- nothing to get too excited about. I'd recommend this place if you are just passing through and need somewhere cheap to stay.

Thank you for taking your time to review us, I hope you enjoyed your stay and everything went well for you. It’s good to see you enjoyed our spacious and clean rooms, and also took advantage of our many free amenities, including our hot full buffet-style breakfast. We are not in the heart of downtown, but we are only five miles from downtown, and if you do not want to drive, there is a lightrail station just a few minutes’ walk from our hotel, and it takes you right into the heart of downtown. We hope you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon!

Our room was spotless. The hotel was very quiet and slept well. Location is great. Close to downtown Portland. We will stay here again.

Hello,
Thank you for taking your time to review us, we hope you enjoyed your stay. Our rooms are kept very clean and spotless thanks to our efficient and friendly housekeepers. I agree our location is great, we are only a short distance from the lightrail public transportation which takes you directly into downtown and covers many areas of Portland. We hope to see you again soon.

Thanks!

Hotel room as nice and clean. Wood floor was a nice change, since we have 2 small service dogs we travel with. Had a coffee maker, Refrigerator, Sink, but no Microwave (strange). My complaint was the 'Hot' Breakfast in the morning. Came down at 8:30, hardly any other lodgers in the breakfast room, and hardly any food, just hard boiled eggs, some slices of bread, no coffee. In fact when we inquired about the coffee, they bought out a fresh pot, that turned out to be broken and got tired of waiting for a new pot to be brought in. Went back to our room and make coffee in the coffee servers in the room. Will think twice before using this hotel for our frequent trips to Portland. To say the least we decided to go out to breakfast.

Hello,

Thank you for your recent stay with us. We are happy to see that our hotel cleanliness was a highlight of your stay. We are sorry to see that our breakfast was not to your satisfaction. We are working on fixing this so that our guests in the future may have a more enjoyable experience. Also, during your stay, we were in the process of switching out all of our microwaves. This is only temporary so rest assured, all of our guest may enjoy the luxury of both a microwave and fridge in their rooms again.

Thanks Again,

Been doing a lot of biz trips to Portland since last year and there is no better place than this all around - service, comfort, location, convenience and price. Even the owners are on site to keep everything in check - so sincerely friendly... Feels like coming home.

In a town full of rooms you would expect the BW to be at least up to the standards set by the chain. The room was okay - bed comfortable, no spread but the walls were paper thin. The staff was outstanding but breakfast was sketchy. 8am and everything was empty even though the room was not busy at all. The big 10 people tables are great but there were not enough chairs and the minute you got up your chair went missing. There was also not enough room to move between the tables. Once again the staff was outstanding, but I left feeling very luke-warm towards the property and think I may try another of the 100+ hotels Portland has to offer.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor so you aren't listening to the people upstairs. Always go to Tr...

The room was good except there was no microwave, which should be standard. The staff cooperated to provide fitted lower sheets which was appreciated (in lieu of flat sheets that always pull out). I liked the fact that the beds didn't have bedspreads which often go unwashed between guest stays at some hotels. The bed linens were of a type that all got washed between guests.

In the morning, I noticed that I could hear a lot of foot traffic from the floor above us. That wasn't too welcome.

I recommend that breakfast hours be extended to 10:00 am because people who come to stay for a concert and such are more likely to get up later, so the end time of 9:00 am didn't work for us.

Room Tip: This motel is near the Columbia River. If you have activities close to downtown, there's easy f...
