Room smelly when we first entered. Bed too close to wall, window very difficult to open, bagels stale and overpriced.

The place is a dump

I couldn't get out of there fast enough. It feels like your typical sleezy gross motel. Super out dated with carpet and comforter stains. Place was gross.

Typical 2-star stay

Chose this as it was the cheapest hotel for one night in Portland area. Everything was fine, but its worth mentioning that the chairs and the only one sunbed at the pool were dirty. Water looked murky. Panera, Chipotle, Dennis and the grocery store are steps away. Easy drive to downtown Portland.

great basic no frills hotel

When I saw the outside of the hotel, I nearly left as it looked so plain and lifeless. I'm glad I didn't. The room was plain and basic, but had all the essentials I needed for a good stay. It was one of the best hotel beds I've EVER slept on, there was just light traffic noise and I could only barely hear other guests, there was an iron with a full ironing board, a small fridge, nice really hot water for the shower. I just needed a good basic place to get a good night's sleep at a cheap price, and this completely fit the bill. There's NO luxury about it, just very practical.

Value for money

This is an average hotel with nice staff and right location. Denny's is just beside the hotel. It is a value for money hotel with free breakfast parking and wifi. I would recommend it.

Architecture is old and not noise proof. But location is good, and reasonable price. Room wasnt as clean as you usually find.

Cheap Hotel Just for Sleeping

Our bed was comfy but accidentally booked a smoking room which was pretty nasty! Other than the smell and cigarette burns everywhere, we were happy with the shower and the bed was comfy and the sheets were clean. That's all we needed and had time for. Close to restaurants and shopping. The Kon Asian Bistro is yummy!

Fine for a quick stay

The hotel was fine for what I needed it for, we were in town for a wedding and just needed a place to sleep. It's convenient that Denny's is right next door.
