The hotel was good for price we paid, they were doing a little construction so supplies where laying out, but other than that the beds were comfortable. Toilet made a loud whistle noise when flushed, but I let the front desk know when checking
out. Overall it was a decent place to stay for the night.
I had to stay overnight in Portland to catch an early am flight ... this hotel worked perfectly ... airport shuttle dropped me at the airport in plenty of time to make my flight. For my requirements this hotel and the staff were great.
Got in after midnight and left at noon the next day after traveling all day long to get there for a stop over. Had a bit of difficulty finding from airport and then our remote for television didn't work, there were warnings not to use television
without remote.....and then couldn't get on line because wireless internet was not working. Somewhat of a disappointment.
