As other reviewers have said, the hotel offers basic amenities, but my room was comfortable, clean, and extremely well laid out. It was also very quiet. An excellent base when in Portland. Very good experience.

Inexpensive, practical lodging

Nothing fancy here. But the location is on the fringe of Portland State University and is a welcome addition for traveling students, parents, or anyone else looking for a reasonable place to stay in an otherwise "high rent" district. A row of food carts across the way adds local color as well as exotic, tasty meals. And it's right near a trolley stop that gives access to Portland's amazing public transportation system.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The trolley stop around the corner puts you into the best public transportation system in the country: buses, trolleys, light rail will take you anywhere in the city and beyond. Get a daily or thirty-day TriMet Pass and save a lot of money..

Decent stay near PSU

Parking is $10 extra per night. The room was clean, updated, comfortable. It was quiet considering proximity to the freeway. The free breakfast opens late and is quite modest. There are a few dining options within a few blocks' walk, and a small group of food trucks across the street provide an all-day aroma.

Pretty nice for a motel

Nice place to stay close to Downtown Portland without paying a lot. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean room, very comfortable bed, had a coffeemaker, microwave and fridge in my room. Air conditioner worked great but was a little noisy. I liked the free continental breakfast consisting of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, orange juice, bagels, white or whole wheat toast, butter, jam, cream cheese, bananas, apples, and 2 types of muffins.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Use the busses, MAX light rail trains and/or the street cars to get around in Portland for only $ 5 all day or $ 2.50 for 2 hours. They run very frequent and can also plan your trip using the website trimet.org.

Mediocre

I noticed that the hotel was not very clean, which was disappointing. I ended up cleaning the bathroom myself so I would feel comfortable. Also, due to my flight being very early, an early checkout was refused to me, and I was told the reception desk would be locked in the morning until 7 am (which was when my flight was due to board). So I never did get to check out.

;unfriendly

the mangers(I think) were rude. they charged 10 dollars a night for parking rrfused to let me park and unload unless I paid them 10 dollars. I will not ever stay here again. I believe I was over charged but didn't dispute it with them I was so glad to leave the place
