My husband and I had a great stay here. The room was very nice and modern. It was clean and the bed and pillows were really comfortable. The staff was very friendly. Nordic Motel was much nicer than any motel I've ever stayed in. It's a bit of a trek to the downtown Portland area if you are going by public transit, but I already knew that when I booked it so I can't really complain. The train across the street is noisey in the morning but it doesn't run on the weekend so that wasn't really an issue either.
The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Amenities were great, with expanded cable, DVD player, fridge and microwave, and especially very good wireless internet. The staff is very friendly and courteous, always willing to help with any problems I had. It is conveniently located close to the airport, a lightrail station and the interstate, but also sort of off the beaten path so it makes the surroundings quieter and not so busy. Some people have commented on the lack of either an exercise room or pool, but I think that is not really as important, especially in Portland, where trails and parks abound very close to everywhere, and you can still get your workout. For the price, this is a great motel and it is my go-to place to stay whenever I'm in the Portland area. What downsides I noticed were all fairly minor in nature and not really things the owners can be faulted for. The location, though convenient to the airport and other ground transportation, is still quite far out from the city center. There are train tracks across the street from the hotel, so once in a while you hear one go by. The parking lot can be a little tight, so be careful when pulling your car in or out.
It was small and quiet. They won't refund my $20 deposit. I had to call my creditcard company to get it back. Such a pain and not worth the headache.
Updated, clean and neat. Owners were very nice. Would stay again.
Cigarette smoke smell in room. Uncomfortble bed and pillows.
We moved hotels. Very dirty. Smells. Found much better options close by. Too many problems to list. Except front desk staff were very pleasant.
Cheap. Close to a freeway. Staff is very friendly. A/C works great. Pillows were hard and lumpy. Kinked or necks. But didn't distract too much from the stay.
We liked the pool, it was clean and heated and very enjoyable. We liked that they had smoking rooms. The male front desk employee on Fri july 19 was nice and very helpful. The bed was really uncomfortable and the bedding was old and warn with holes in it. The female front desk employee was rude and had no interests in helping anyone, she worked on sat morning July 20th. The breakfast bar didn't meet my expectations of a bed and breakfast.
The young man christopher that worked the first night i stayed was very polite and professional and accommodated my family and i as well as he could. It was expensive in comparison to the quality, the other staff members were rude and unsettling, the rooms and over all environment of the hotel was dirty and uncomfortable and the door locks did not work my family and I felt unsafe the entire time.
clean simple rooms for a good rate, micro-fridge is A+ amenity large flat screen TV (but not great channel selection) quirky front desk staff, TV reception poor , no ABC or PBS and only HBO 2, not main HBO, annoying front desk staff. Housekeepers ignore DND sign, but they are nice ladies. don't even bother with the breakfast, it's only open till 9.am even on weekends and it's not worth anything.
I didn't stay here! I stayed at the Aladdin. J I didn't stay here! I stayed at the Aladdin. J
Meth addicts kept me up in the morning smoking outside my window.
Very clean, comfortable, and convenient to shopping. The front desk clerks were super-helpful and printed out several maps to help me get around Beaverton.
Clean. Near downtown. Small earthquakes when train passes by. Very early check out . Not very friendly staff. They speak on the phone while attending you.
Great location in NE and on the max line! Right next to overlook park, which has one of my favorite views of the city. Beautiful sunsets there, but the neighborhood can feel a little shady after dark. You are paying for the location, not the amenities. Only 2 channels on the TV, if that's something you care about.
Not much to like. Room smelled very strongly like smoke. Not too clean. Overall, what I would expect for the price. I immediately wished that I paid up for a nicer place to spend the night.
$70 a night for two comfortable beds, and clean room in a great location on up and coming Interstate Ave. One of several good deal hotels on Interstate that represent some of the best values in central PDX.
Quiet location, clean room
The staff was incredibly accommodating. The location is also amazing. The motel is across the street from a train station, right next to a lovely little park, and within walking distance from the Mississippi District. Even though my room was nonsmoking, it still smelled a bit like smoke. Not enough to give me a headache, the way smoke typically does, but enough to be noticeable when you step into the room. The wifi is decent, though nothing amazing.
Could not have visitors room desk clerk bad night service
The location was central to two separate districts When pulling up to this quaint little spot, you notice the horrid tacky neon sign - and you know you're about to have a bad time. Once arrived, my girlfriend and I were just trying to check into the facility for what our online reservation was for. The desk clerk proceeded to tell us that we were going to have to pay an additional 20 dollars to reserve the room and at that point during the night we didn't have another option. Although I must admit it was incredibly difficult to understand what the clerk was saying through missing teeth and a drunken slur. After much irritation we agreed, only to have our card charged multiple times because the receipt paper wasn't working correctly to which the employee thought the answer was to keep charging until it finally printed. We were both disgruntled and thought the awful experience was over, just wanting to get some rest. Subsequently - we were woken up at 9 a.m. To the sound of leaf blowers - that insisted to go on for over an hour. Their water is murky, the wifi is garbage and the staff is god awful. Represents their business practices. Stay away. TLDR: worst hotel/motel/airbnb/couch surf ever
Staff was nice. Place was dumpy. Crusty bathroom walls. musty smell.
The beds are not very comfortable, the toilet ran all night, and the fridge was noisy. But you get what you pay for!
The price Everything else
Friendly and accommodating staff, clean and spacious rooms, very affordable, excellent location right next to a park and a railway stop, only a short walk to Mississippi Ave neighborhood Minor inconvenience of the fan automatically turning on when the light turns on in the bathroom
The employees were friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Great location! Food carts across the street. Cheap bread and cheap muffins for breakfast. When we pulled the sheets back to get into bed, they had food and short, curly hairs on the sheets.
Conveniently located for visit to family members and close to desired activities, as well as ease of public transportation. Little selection for continental breakfast and few options for breakfast close by during weekend visit.
For the money, this was a great value! The price was so much better than the airport hotels, and it was only a few exits SW of downtown on I-5. The property was VERY clean, very nice and well-kept. For an independently owned hotel, the owners have obviously worked very hard to keep pace with the offerings of the major chains. I would definitely recommend. I do wish the breakfast was a little more robust (eggs, or bacon or sausage), but really the food was fine for the price we paid for the room. No complaints, really.
location good Smell from cleaning spray and previous smoker. Mattress lumpy
People at the desk were very friendly. The area had a couple sketchy characters about and the night desk clerk roved the premises for safety. Loved that since I was walking the dog alone. Overall a great stop for the cheap cost.
We booked a 1-King-bed room. Our 5yr old grandson ended up coming with us, so we called & asked if we could switch rooms. The very pleasant woman said, "Oh, you don't need to - there's a hide-a-bed in the room." When we arrived after 9pm, tired after driving all day, the man at the front desk said they don't even have hide-a-beds anymore. We were forced to pay $10 more for the last 2-queen room. Irritating.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, with answers to all of our questions. Having the in-room fridge was incredibly useful. Water pressure was decent, and sufficiently hot as needed. Over all, we were quite satisfied. This is more of a comment towards Portland in general, but the cigarette smoke was pretty heavy around there. We were in a no-smoking room, but we could still smell it with all the doors and windows closed, when people outside would light up. Similarly, my mother was staying in a no-smoking room a few doors down from us, and her room was permeated with the smell.
Somewhere to sleep? Crackheads rapping upon our chamber door. A night all alone i hear a rumble, so alone, er tho rumbles a crackhead so noir. Through some peephole a menace beyonde below, begging for smoke, and no more, we wished him a well travel, but sent him off with black a mild a plenty, such a uncouthed vagrant he beggdd for scrapped, yest be cast him about a yappin. Quote the crackhead "You-aint-got no mo?'". "'Tis my last square." I uttered. Though i may have softly spoken, desipite the reefer i'd been smoking., i said, "no more" "In my robe of complementary so galore I uttered begone harlot so wishing to be galore. Alas, I stayed in hotel of the trees, though noisiness never let me get a nut. Like an acorn, their rating fell, like a bat out of hell. A wonderful trip still happrnened nut unto ye, old chestnut tree.
The bed was very comfortable and made every day of our stay. It is very easy to get into downtown because it is right next to the main highways.
First of all I made a reservation online under "pet friendly" and accidentally booked it for the wrong weekend. I called the hotel and the front desk was extremely rude and told me to call whomever I booked through. When we got there we were told our room was not pet friendly and our dog was not allowed. I was also asked for $100 deposit who h was never mentioned when I booked either. It was an ok room but we alarmed that the police showed up to loudly escort the people above us from their room in the middle of the night. Never ever again would I stay here. Don't do it.
There wasn't anything to like about this place. To start, when I arrived, they panicked because they didn't have my room. All they could do is put me in a smoking room. I took it because I needed a place to stay. And as far as I can tell I still paid the extra that I reserved through Kayak for a non smoking room. The room smelled like smoke, and the lady at the front desk offered to spray it for me. Really? The bed and pillows had burn holes in them, which I had to disclose so I could get my $50 deposit back. This place is a joke, do not stay here!
Great location to both I5 and 205. Quiet. The rooms were extremely clean and very nicely kept. Beds and pillows were all very comfortable especially considering how inexpensive our stay was. Staff was extremely kind and helpful. Definitely a great short stay hotel.
Breakfast was good with eggs and sausage make your own waffles cereal muffins coffee and juice
Room was clean, nice water pressure, soft sheets Tv picture was pretty bad for whatever reason. Bed was smaller than expected despite upgrading to the business king suite - whatever that even means.
Clean, comfortable room, excellent desk service, location was where I needed it to be... not a 4 star hotel, but it didn't need to be. Perfect.
Great location. Free WiFi. No frills. Minimal room, but comfortable beds with good service and a clean atmosphere. It's an older motel, so it definitely has a run-down feel. For my trip (visiting Portland with a friend to go enjoy the city, nightlife, etc) this was perfect. It's confusing to find parking (small lot) and to get around the motel.
Great location, close to downtown. Staff was friendly, rooms appeared clean. A little noisy at night. The room smelled heavily of perfumed air freshener. The bathroom had what appeared to be fruit flies.
The best part about it is the location, which is right in the heart of downtown Portland. Clean enough, though not anything fancy. Seemingly nice staff. Noisy. A little sketchy. Didn't feel 100% safe there.
The location was extremely convenient for going across the river (by bus or car) to the Pearl, Nob Hill and Downtown districts. Also, the immediate vicinity was good, as the hotel is very near to the Jupiter Hotel and Doug Fir Lounge and Restaurant, which has good breakfasts and a nice nighttime bar. The rooms were clean and functional - and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. I give this hotel my top rating! No complaints.
great location, nice staff, newly renovated, clean. the bathroom is a little dated.
The staff was very accommodating, they allowed us to check in a few hours before check in time so that we could freshen up and explore the city! The location of this motel was great, we could have walked to the convention center (where we attended comic con, the reason for our visit), and most uber rides downtown were around 7-10 dollars! There were also a few decent restaurants within walking distance! I definitely recommend breakfast and J and M. While the actual location of the hotel was great, it did get a bit noisy at night, with or without open windows.
Vintage motel in great location with friendly staff. Don't expect fancy little soaps, room service or marble countertops. Lots of fun places nearby, good bus and bike connections.
Staff is friendly Beds are mediocre. Sheets and mattress both
Bad breakfast, curtains were softer than the comforter.
Knowing that we had booked a motel based on a lower price we weren't expecting a luxurious motel . With that said we were greeted with very friendly and helpful staff and a clean room . The location was ideal and it was quiet . The shower was not working well .
Clean, bed was comfortable, friendly staff, easy to find Breakfast was okay, because it was close to the airport you could really hear the planes taking off
The waffles and the shuttle service as well as the room/tv channels A bit far from the max but luckily the shuttle service takes people to the airport stop and picks them up when you call
had end unit so took long time for hot water to arrive
Nothing. Honestly, there was nothing good to report about this hotel. It was 20 minutes off the freeway in the middle of nowhere. It was stinky, old, tattered, rundown, gross etc. We paid $72 for this, when it should have been more in the $30 range. Do not stay here!
nothing to like here The staff was unfriendly, the staff were not polite. The room when we got to it had dirty yellow sheet and was stinking. When we asked the staff to do something about it, they said they were understaffed and all the other rooms were taken so could not do anything about it.
Close to bus stop A fridge and expensive wifi
location was ideal for Portland. Close to downtown, could take the bus and be there in10 min. Close to Safeway and convenience stores. required payment for wi-fi old CRT type TV took up too much space on small desk picture was not very good. noisy A/C Staff was helpful and was able to save a few bucks by correcting the occupants to 1 adult and 1 child (kayak had defaulted to 4 adults) No way you can fit 4 adults in that small room
I liked how conveniently located it is. It's a short drive to downtown. The fact that wifi is extra is a reason for me to reconsider staying here again.
This place is overpriced. Unless your main objective while visiting Portland is to visit the strip club next door or go bowling at the place across the street I would not stay here. There are hardly any amenities available even if requested. The worst part? There were bugs in the bed.
Cheap and good location No refrigerator, no laundry, extremely cramped. Have stayed at other Motel 6's that had much better amenities and more space.
Staff was friendly Strong smell of bleach, enough to make you feel sick and the beds are worse than sleeping on 2x4s
Yes the fact that right next door someone had a yelping dog ( who smelled) But more so the man stood outside our door smoking I have respiratory problems and certainly did not expect to go into and out of my room into a cloud if smoke
The bed was comfortable. Not at all as advertised. The photo on Priceline was not the Motel 6 we stayed at. The photo has now been taken down, so others must have complained also. The room was dirty, the bathroom was dirty - there was hair in the tub and on the edge of the tub.
A/C was not cooling the room at all A/C
Nothing It is a dump... Would not stay again ...paid $--- better to stay in my car.
I like the price. The bed was comfortable. Hallways smelled like smoke.
Rooms have been upgraded except for carpet. There were rolls of carpet waiting to be installed. Coffee was available in lobby when we needed it. Would have been nice to have had a newspaper available. Was a good value for the money.
I've stayed in many of these and I'm usually not expecting much, but the king room was actually really comfy and clean for a decent price. I hope they keep this trend up.
I did not like the fact that if you wanted to connect to the wifi you had to pay for it. Would I have realized that before I got there I most likely would not have stayed as most hotels offer it for free.
I like the location Room needed to be cleaner and air conditioner wasn't working properly.
Bed was soft and room was clean, very affordable Next to strip club
The staff are friendly. It's clean. It's cheap. What more do you want for the price that you're paying...a four star hotel? If you want all that "extra" than PAY EXTRA if you're "fancy". Otherwise, for a clean place to stay for $50 bucks this will do.
