Great value for a great location!

Decided on this hotel because of how close it was to the convention center, literally a 10 minute walk. We attended both days of rose city comic con, and we managed to keep our goal of not having to use the car all weekend. There were several places to eat, all within a very short walking distance, so between that and the convention center, the location couldn't have been more perfect for us. The man at the front was very helpful and informative. The hotel is rather old however and does have a certain smell to it, but the room and bathroom were very clean. Loved the high water pressure in the shower and we kept the air conditioning on all weekend with no problems. The free parking and wifi were great. Overall, it's a lower end hotel, but perfect for people like us that just wanted the basics because we were gonna be out and about all day.

Great location just don't die.

The room door opened slowly in the night, we jumped out of bed and the door closed, slowly. The coffee wasn't very good either.

Great location, good price

On multiple trips to Portland this has been the place I stay or attempt to stay. Although it's not a swanky place, it's comfortable and a great place if you don't want the extras. What really sets it apart though is that it's in a great location, one of the less expensive places to stay and the staff are very helpful. I usually stay here to go to the Oregon Brewers Fest and can easily walk across the Burnside bridge to the park it's at w/o much strain. Plus, there's a streetcar connection within a block and a lot of places to eat, drink or party nearby.

Wonderful Couples Getaway

Great location, near everything. Interesting restaurants and things to see within walking distance. Try the Jupiter restaurant across the street. Powell's Book store is a must see. Our king size bed was so cozy, the room was clean, and the staff was friendly and very helpful. Outstanding value for the price. We will be staying here again.. : )

Pretty good for a place to crash when in the city

The staff was very friendly. Its right across the road from Doug fir, and close to the bus lines to downtown. You can also walk across the burnside bridge to the downtown area fairly quickly. Great location. Rooms had Air conditioning which was nice. Only negative would be our iron did not work which made prepping for a wedding difficult, and the room was a little dirty and dated.

Price and Location

So, I was close to giving this hotel 3 stars. The room was nice, but not great. The air conditioning didn't work. Things were a bit scuffed up. However, we had no troubles with the staff. It was a great price. The mini-fridge was a great addition. And it was close to a lot of different things.

Great Location

Did not enjoy the smell of our room and our bathroom was old and not very clean. It is at a good location next to restaurants, bars, bus stops etc. but I guess that is common for a lot of Hotels in Portland.

Well...got less than we paid for...for sure.

The only good thing I can say about this hotel is that when I left my wallet downstairs on a table in the "courtyard" it was returned to me when I inquired. Otherwise, the room STUNK, the light switches were STICKY and we were both way to grossed out to use the shower in the morning after a night of drinking and exploring the cool shops and eateries in the area. This was a first for me...I typically can roll with the pros and cons.

Great location on Burnside, Good Value

Centrally located, food trucks across the street. An easy walk across the Burnside Bridge to Voodoo Donuts and the Portland Saturday Market. Clean, simple and an enormous amount of cable channels for when I got back at 2 AM and was munching on chicken wings from the Just Wings truck across the street.

Average hotel experience

The hotel room was generally clean but fixtures were dated and decor was modest. The light in the entry and above the bathroom mirror didn't work. The shower door was slightly rusted but very functional and generally clean. Our particular room faced a street that was moderately noisy through the night.
