Good just to sleep

The good: 1. Hotel is right in front of the rail car which takes you downtown. 2. It was the cheapest somewhat decent we could find last minute. 3. Our king bed room was spacious,seemed clean and decent, microwave & fridge and a table with chairs. The bad: 1. Hotel is old and worn down, definitely could use work. 2. Old fashioned tv. And no pool. 3. It's in a isolated part of city and on your way back to the hotel the closest the rail car drops you off is about 3 blocks away, so if you return to your room late in the evening it's pretty creepy with slot of questionable characters around. I would not feel safe with children. 4. No complimentary breakfast. 5. They put a $50.00 hold on your card upon check-in aside from your room rate for "incidental".

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

This town is pretty friendly and you are better off renting a car to get around town because public transportation doesn't take you to all the scenic places and waterfalls it mainly takes you to and from the airport and around the "pioneers square" in downtown.

Great Location

We've been here before with friends. It's in a great location to quickly jump on TriMet . It's right across from the convention center. The rooms are a little dated, but the bathrooms are clean. There's no hair dryers in the rooms, but they have some for use from the office. Their continental breakfast is coffee, juice & a swee roll.

Going across the Broadway Bridge takes you right into the Pearl District, an awesome part of downtown for quaint shops, little cafes, a dog friendly part of Portland.

A dive

I picked this place mainly because of the location and that I though it was pet friendly. The beds are extremely hard. The TV is circa '80's and the furnishing from the '70's. The bathroom was some what clean and had hot water. Oh, the towels were the softest I have ever had in a hotel. If you are there during a Trailblazers game then don't give up your parking spot. You will not find a parking spot within 1 mile (I am not kidding). The managers do not TB fans from parking in the hotel lot.

Great for the price.

I was afraid that this hotel was going to be a dive. I was pleasantly surprised. While not a 5 star hotel, this motel met my needs and was better than I expected. The carpets were freshly steam cleaned that day. The air conditioner was brand new and worked beautifully. My only "deltas" would be the pillows on the bed were useless. And the hot water situation was hit or miss. The sink only put out hot water and the shower only put out lukewarm/cool water. I would stay there again. While not downtown, it was centrally located near most everywhere I wanted to go. The free Wi-Fi was a plus too.

Utilitarian

Overall, my experience was okay. No specific problems. I was surprised, though, that the motel was as small as it was, and that it was surrounded by warehouses. The Rose Quarter (Blazer's stadium) is just across the street, so for someone wanting to see a game or other event, this place would be convenient. Another convenience is that it is right on Portland's CL streetcar line. It goes to OMSI in one direction and PSU in the other, with access to downtown Portland and easy connections to the MAX trains and other streetcars. As my title suggests: utilitarian.

Average economy place

A nice hotel this is not. It is, however, a clean and comfortable place that's within walking distance of the Pearl neighborhood, the convention center and the riverwalk, and that costs a quarter of what it would cost you to stay in downtown proper. Overall, a good deal.

Horrible: Wouldn't recommend

Horrible. We would not recommend this place at all. We will never stay at Econo Lodge ever again!! We booked a NON-SMOKING ROOM, but they only had a SMOKING ROOM available when we had a late check in at 9 pm. I'm pregnant and told the front desk that I booked a Non-Smoking Room and he argued that we booked a Smoking Room. He said that he had spray for us to use and that we can smoke in the room. Who would tell a pregnant woman that they can smoke in the room? The shower alternated between a drizzle of lukewarm and cold water. The breakfast was coffee and some packaged pastries. It was horrible and I'm glad that we only booked for 1 night! I will never stay in an Econo Lodge again. I highly recommend spending more money to stay in a better hotel.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

The Loyd Center Mall is only a few minutes drive. You can do shopping, find ATMs, and places to eat there. Also, we love to go to "The Grotto". We needed a place of relaxation in nature, after spending the night in this horrible place.
