I'm a budget hotel regular & have realized hotels with similar conditions can give me different feelings - this one made me a little sad but it truly seems to be the best value you can get if you want to be anywhere near downtown Portland. The shower was great. The internet was great. The front desk was pretty helpful....

Since the Airport was nearby, I needed a 2 night stay since my flight was delayed and I was impressed with the friendliness of the front desk. The two nights I stayed there I slept fairly well. The price was beyond reasonable, but there were no nearby shopping malls.

Needed a place to crash for the night after a concert and all the hostels and other inexpensive hotels were booked. It was in a convenient location, we didn't find the surrounding area too sketchy. Comfortable bed, but the comforter and pillowcases had some stains. The towels in the bathroom had some light stains too, might have been rust from...

Came here based off of reviews on this site. This place was rated as a great deal. I am not prissy nor am I a chronic complainer. I just wish someone had deterred me so I thought I'd do my part. The good: - The staff was friendly. - It was under 70 to stay there. - No known contracted...

Sorry that your stay here wasn't what you expected, I'm not sure how you think you might have contracted a disease but I feel really bad that you think that. I do apologize for the lighting issue, I will talk to the housekeepers and let them know to check all light bulbs. This building was built in the 60's and...

The original hotel that work put me at lost power for the entire day. Not waiting for the FedTraveler bureaucracy to work its way through (on the phone for 4 hours), I ended up here at 23:00 on a Monday night looking for a room. The manager and the maintenance supervisor were both really nice in getting me into a...

It was already quite late after we'd finished dinner and we were desperate to find an inexpensive hotel. We even went onto a hostel website and then called AAE Portland, but they quoted us a price around $75 for two. After more online research, we discovered that Cameo had pretty good ratings, so we called the place and were quoted...

The room was clean. But. NO TOWELS or glasses anywhere to be found in the room. When I made manager aware, he grumbled about poor help. Got me towels but never apologized. Kleenex dispenser was empty. No early morning coffee. Had to go across street to 7-11 for coffee.
