This hotel has great proximity to the Expo Center. We stayed in it in 1994, then again in 2014. I think we had the same mattress. Even though the springs were coming through the mattress, the manager had basically nothing to say, "yeah we need new beds" as he left. This hotel needs a clean up in a bad way....

So I bought this hotel room for a one night stay in Portland. First off not close to Portland. Second scary as hell! People coming up to doors banging on them. People randomly ealking in the parking lot. Horrible traffic. Horrible customer service. Guy told me to pretty much deal with all the problems. Dont stay here ever!!!!

After the 4.5 star hotel my boyfriend and I were supposed to have stayed in booked us a month too early and left us out in the cold we searched 2 1/2 hours to find another place to stay. There was a convention going on in Portland that weekend and we had nowhere to go. Another little motel directed us...

Filthy, horrible place. Meth addicts and homeless people in the hallways. None of the lights in the room worked. Faucet leaked. Toilet seat broken. Filthy towels. Raging party of 30 meth addicts going on upstairs, domestic violence happening next door. Noisy street with semi-trucks. Hallways, stairs and room have never been cleaned, ever. Carpet stained, mattress stained, sheets had holes...

Price was good but that was it. Not really close to anything although many ff resturants nearby. Room was very basic. Good selection of cable TV channels. Room was very noisy due to location near the road. Free WiFi connection to the internet was down for my entire 3 day visit.

The hotel is nice, the room was clean and has bathroom.... it's very cheap, but don't have elevathor, so, if you have big luggages (like me), I suggest to stay in the first floor. It's near from a big outlet...

I made the reservation via Southwest's vacation option. This hotel is right in the middle of ghetto Oregon. I pulled up and noticed that this was not where I wanted to sleep immediately. The gang of rough looking individuals hanging outside was the first clue. This place had a horrible smell and the floor was not something I wanted to...

My husband and I stayed here two nights, the room was clean and the bed comfy. They have a fridge and microwave. Their is fast food close by and the only bad thing was being cat called at but you get what you pay for and I was truly satisfied. The 2nd night we couldn't pay until midnight because of...

The bed was terrible- hard as a rock. I had no idea they made beds this hard. Room was tiny, window was left open w/ no heat on so it was freezing when we walked in. 2 out of 3 lamps were not plugged in with no outlet nearby TO plug them into. Front desk person was exceedingly rude when...
