We were looking for a reasonably-priced motel near the airport to overnight. The Nordic is only about 4 miles away. It is a small, older motel, but it is well-maintained and clean. Looks like the owners put a lot of effort in keeping the facility up-to-date. Room was nice and quiet. Motel tacks a $50 secuity deposit on to the...

This is a good bargain--very clean, near public transportation. I would choose a bigger room next time. It is so well kept that it seems it just opened yesterday! It would help to have a map or list of restaurants nearby--especially if there are some to the east. There is only tea or coffee in the mornings, so you may...

I am notoriously discerning about the cleanliness of hotels- this room more than met my expectations, and all for an incredible price. The room was spacious and very clean, with a comfortable bed and full mini fridge (separate freezer compartment). Being a classic motel setup, each room has a drive-up parking spot and outside entrance. Staff were very friendly and...

We stayed two nights (Friday/Saturday) to visit our daughter. Our suite had two bedrooms with very comfortable double beds and kitchen (full refrigerator, stove and microwave). The bathtub was a nice size. All was clean and people were nice. Surprising quite. Would definately stay again!

This is a small well maintained motel near the airport and well worth the price. Our room was small but very clean and tastefully decorated. The bed was super comfortable. The room had a microwave and refrigerator too. Kudos to the owner!

The location was very convenient to the airport and the staff was very friendly and available at early/late hours. The room was very clean and comfortable. Noise from the road was minimal and easily muffled by running the fan. I was very happy with everything and would definitely stay here again.

Loved this place! We will return. Close to everything we needed And the kitchenettes were nice and roomy with full size refrigerators. Owners are on sight and ready to make it the best stay ever! Only thing that bugged me was the fridge was very loud running all night. Maids did a great job and the grounds are well kept....

Arriving at PDX about 8:40 p.m., I sought out a taxi (as advised by Airport Information Staff) because the Nordic does not provide a Shuttle. The Nordic is located about twenty minutes away, and I was denied a TAXI by TWO drivers ... the first driver, looking at the address, and telling me "I don't know where that is...". Be...

Ive stayed here three times and each time I meant to write a review. Today is finally the day when I tell everyone about the high quality stays Ive had at the NORDIC! Super clean rooms, super friendly owner, and very modern facilities - you cannot beat the price, either, not for this high quality of stay!
