Nice and Comfortable

Very Nice. You can tell that the hotel is a little older but is well maintained. The bathroom soaps were bath and body works which I love and they greeted us with warm cookies. YUM

Good value

We would have liked to be closer to downtown, but this was more affordable. The staff was very welcoming, when we found our room refrigerator wasn't working, they were there within minutes to replace it. The room itself was adequate, I found the bed very comfortable, but my husband did not. We enjoyed the outdoor pool and the complimentary popcorn and snack mix. Breakfast at Zachary's was a tasty bargain.

Makes Portland an affordable getaway!

Portland is such a fabulous place to visit but the hotels are very pricey. The Fireside allowed us to have a great weekend without over-spending. Very adequate accomodations, extraordinarily friendly & helpful staff and great breakfast voucher. Bath products were a treat--love the Bath & Body Works products! Indoor pool & health area/jacuzzi a plus in "iffy" weather.

Complementary Continental breakfast is convenient, but use the free "voucher" to get a great hot breakfast for practically the same price!

Girls Get Away

Hotel lobby nice. No help offered to our room was very inconvenient to get to and from front entry. Front desk and shuttle staff great. Hostess was rude,went to eat at 8:30, we could be seated but they closed at 9:00, she had to cash her drawer out, the waiter was fantastic, did not rush us and the food was wonderful! We loved the band in the lounger. Disappointing not to have a choice for lunch, deli sandwiches, chips, salads, etc., would have been nice. At 1:00 PM housekeeping had not been in yet, the front desk called to tell us their shift was over at 2:00. We went to downtown twice each day, it cost us $70 each day for transportation.

A room without a view

Our room looked at a brick wall. it was disappointing. However, we were not there much so the staff friendliness and location made up for it. They also ran out of towels but quickly brought them to us when they could

Visited family in Portland

The hotel was adequate...the bathroom was clean and the bed was comfortable. The carpet should be removed. It is very dirty. It is an adequate hotel if you are not staying in the room for long periods. This hotel needs to be revamped and updated. The best thing about the stay was the breakfast in the dining room....it was very inexpensive and delicious.

Fair location, basic hotel

Great location if you want right off highway. Not so good if you want to be in the center of town. We only used the room which had clean sheets and towels. Rugs and curtains could use washing. Room amenities were basic. Free wifi is nice. Never used pool or dining room.
