Downtown Value Inn

1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Through our stay, there was no hot water in the shower. The heating and fans were very noisy old units. There was 1/4 roll of toilet paper when we arrived to our room, so had to ask for more. Not even coffee in the morning.

It met all of our needs and close to where we needed to be.

Overall great experience. Friendly staff. Parking in garage was tight. Small spaces. Terrible internet service (very slow).

I was not able to come on a reservation date and they charged full price for a day. Not able to talk to a manager. Smelly room.

Reading mixed reviews on this inn, I was a little trepidatious before checking in. All concerns were assuaged upon arrival, however, by a clean, spacious room and friendly staff. I hope to visit Portland many more times in the future and I now have the peace of mind in knowing that very affordable, comfortable, centrally-located lodging is available at the Downtown Value Inn. I would recommend it to anyone on a budget.

It was a basic room. The telephone was broken when I got into the room. I was told it broke yesterday, and it was replaced within 10 minutes. The flushing mechanism on the toilet was broken. They did have a repair person up in a minute or two. There was a soap rings on the bathroom sink. The room itself was fine and basic. Nothing special.

In&out, my Recommendation is, if you decide to stay here, ask to stay in the biggest room, that they have that is on the... City/ street side the room is extremely big so there is a lot of space that is very comfortable however I definitely do not feel, this place is, a comfortable place to stay one night quickly, (big room)... maybe after a concert or drinking out at the bars definitely, not date material or relaxing.

The hotel could use some TLC and an extensive deep cleaning. It served it's purpose for an weekend getaway but ,ystery stains on the ceiling and carpet are bit much too say the least.

The Value Inn in downtown Portland reminds me of a crackhouse from the movies. The location is great, situated near PSU and just a couple of blocks from the heart of downtown. The hotel itself was terrible. The accomadations were way overpriced for what I received. The room had all the standard amenities, but they were all way passed their prime. The nightstand had about 100 cigarette burns from people letting their cigarettes burn out. The carpet was tore up and their were burns in that as well. The beds were somewhat comfortable, however I was scared to sleep under the sheets and the bed frames did not match. The door to the bathroom had chips in it and the front door had duck tape holding the locking mechanism in place.

This hotel was atrocious! Cigarette burns on the night stand and blankets (in a non-smoking room). Long black hairs in the clean shower, and to top it off, fecal matter still in the toilet. There wasn't a deadbolt for the door, just a small and inneffective looking lock... not even a chain! I felt unsafe in this hotel and left without even sitting down. Location was good. If you value cleanliness, safety, or service, steer clear of the Downtown Value Inn.

Thank you for sharing your opinion! We were glad to read that you were treated kindly by our hospitality associates and that our location was convenient to your needs. We were sorry to see that you faced some issues during your time with us that made your stay less enjoyable than it could have been. Standard procedure is to have all rooms stocked with an extra roll of toilet paper for our guest's convenience. That this was not done in the room you were checked into was an oversight on our part and we are sorry for the mix-up. Were our personnel made aware of the lack of adequate hot water? Were they unable to move you to a different room that would have been more suitable? All of our patrons are important and their comfort and well being are our chief concern. We failed in our efforts to provide you with the experience you were expecting and we would like to offer you our sincere apologies. Even if you should seek lodgings elsewhere we hope you will still continue to visit Portland often.
