The pool was nice, the beds were comfy and it was quiet. Breakfast was better than some. House keeping was very helpful.
The tub wasn't as clean as I would have liked it. There was a crack in the ceiling and in the door frame. There were little black flies coming in the bathroom. Would have liked if the room had laundry bags. The tv remote didn't work. Wifi was slow. The staff just ignored people as they walked in. Manager was just hanging out and talking with the front desk all night.
We needed a hotel room at the last minute in Portland and a lot of places were sold out. Howard Johnson was low-priced, clean, and close to everything we needed. If you are looking for an inexpensive place to stay in Portland, this hotel is an excellent choice.
Convenient location, nice pool, ample parking and better than average breakfast.
Television picture was very grainy.
