Portland Oregon Airport Motel We are proud of what our past guests have to say about our services and accommodations. We are one of the best Portland Oregon area motels with amenities and rates that beat out any other choice for Portland Oregon lodging. Of all the weekly motels Portland has to offer we are your top choice. Read to see what others are saying about their stay at the best Portland Oregon airport motel Nordic Motel PDX Lodging The Scene This cute motel is very off the beaten path for PDX lodging but some travelers like it that way. Its also just a few minutes from the Portland International runways and offers a quiet and affordable alternative to the spendy airport hotels and noisy joints that litter 82nd Avenue. The Details The rooms here are standard and offer the perk of cable television. There are some one-bedroom apartments available at weekly rates. All guests whether staying overnight or longer are required to pay a refundable deposit

clean motel

Nordic Motel is clean and close to downtown Portland. The beds were comfortable. The restroom was clean but small. There was a shower stall instead of a tub. The room had a minifridge and a microwave. The tv was small but it worked. The only amenity was free coffee and hot water from 7 am to 11 am. Parking was free and it was easy to find a spot.

Surprising Value

This was a great discovery. An extremely affordable hotel that was spotless and comfortable. My wife was a little concerned when we pulled in the parking lot, but once she saw the room she was very happy. Front desk staff was very courteous. One note, they charged a refundable deposit for a cleaning fee; you just have to remember to go to the front desk when you check out to get it back.

Nice But Far

Nordic Motel is clean, comfortable and perfectly nice. We paid more than the normal price as we booked last minute and it was 4th of July weekend - but $89 per night was still not too bad. The only problem with this hotel is that it is FAR from the city center. It is nearby the airport, so your only options are 1. $30 cab ride to/from Portland city center or 2. a bus ride to a light rail train to the city center that takes about an hour and a half round trip. If this hotel were closer to the downtown it would've been perfect.

Nordic Motel

We stayed at Nordic Motel last weekend and were pleasantly surprised. The owner was super friendly and accommodating - he happily gave us free water bottles (there was a boil order in Portland so no one could drink tap water) and answered all of our questions. The rooms were clean and well maintained. Our stay was enjoyable and the motel exceeded our expectations given the price!

Great Value

The room is quite and clean. The price is good. Staff looks too causal handling stuffs. Husband and wife business feeling is too obvious.

This really is a hidden gem

As a frequent traveler for work and play, I've got it narrowed down to a science: what do I want from a hotel room? Location, cleanliness, value, and amenities. Location: this property is not located downtown Portland however is near the airport right off the I-205. The area is sparsely populated (no SBUX, restaurants, etc.). However as an older Asian woman traveling solo, I did not feel unsafe. Cleanliness: absolutely spotless, and no bedbugs. Amenities: my key requirement would be the microwave and mini-frig. Value: you cannot beat the price. Overall I give this motel 5 stars!
