It was OK and we got to watch some TV, go grab a bite to eat and take a hot shower. We were in town to run a 5K race the next morning. It was quiet but the bed was hard and the room smelled like smoke. I would stay again but the room would have to be a non-smoking room. Close to restaurants and our event so it was fine.
I would not say this was the worst stay I have had at a hotel in the US. The Barclay Hotel in Atlanta wins that hands down. To be fair, one must list the pros. Good location, not too far from downtown Portland, just over the bridge and a reasonably priced Uber ride. However as far as the cons, the rooms are very average, and one gets the impression that this isn't the most comfortable part of town, despite there being far worse areas downtown. A big big minus is that there is no elevator, and there was no real enthusiasm to help with luggage by management (or to allow you to store luggage whilst on a tour). If you have heavy luggage like I had, you will literally kill yourself to get it to the second floor if you have a room there. Accordingly, if you are booking in here and have heavy luggage, insist on a ground floor room. My tip if you are in Portland? Look for heavily discounted luxury hotels and try and grab a bargain with more facilities. This was discounted from memory, but the discount was what it was actually worth and probably less. Pretty average, no elevator, no help.…
This was a 1 star hotel, folks. No hair dryer or microwave, and the sml. refrigerator would only be cool at best. Good thing is walking distance from Convention center/Rose Garden, and staff was super nice.
Was looking for a 1 night stay because I came to a basketball game. This hotel was perfect for that. Nothing fancy at all. Just a 5 minute walk to Moda Center and didn't have to pay for parking. Beds are comfortable (full not queen). Comcast and WiFi included. Free coffee in the morning. No bells and whistles here but perfect for someone who just needs a place to sleep. **NOTE: This is no longer called Econo Lodge. It is now Roadway Inn.
Parked here for the blazer game as I was told they have nightly patrol and a lit parking lot and right across from the game. Patrol decided to call it an early night and that's when multiple cars (including mine) got broken into. I guess even when you pay to park you're supposed to somehow keep full watch of what's going on around and to your car as well. Next time I'll just take an uber and not coming back here.
I ended up at this hotel because the Hilton AND Embassy Suites botched my reservation for the Embassy Suites downtown. I was able to get a room here quickly - which was nice. The price was half that of the downtown hotels - but it was a major dive. The motels like this in Portland are not as bad as the ones in the South - but you have to pay like twice as much to stay (as opposed to similar motels in the South) and I am certain that is not worth it. The crowd there seemed to be pretty mild versus what you get at these motels in the South - but I didn't even have a microwave in my room. As a single traveler - I did not feel safe leaving the room at night. So I ordered food in and just stayed put. Not only did the internet not work - the network the desk attendant kept telling me to find did not exist. It straight up did not exist. So I was stuck in the motel with no way to access Wifi to work. She told me tart my laptop blah blah. I ended up doing hours of work from my iPhone. With no microwave. As the title states - I did not die. But it could've been better. If all you need is a place to sleep this is your best bet. But don't come and think this is going to be a relaxing experience. Some carpet cleaning truck showed up the second day I was there and parked right outside my door. It was so loud I couldn't concentrate. It is also right on the highway so you hear the buses and other public transportation coming and going. The owners are nice. I'll give them that.…
If you are looking for a bed to sleep only and do not want to spend time in your room at a fair price it is the place to go. However, the room smelt old and was more than basic with a very poor soundproof. AC was not reliable but the internet was fast and parking free. The room are just too old and poorly maintained to look clean but I believe that the housekeeper did a good job. At the end of the day if you are traveling on budget you can consider this Hotel overwise consider other options. The bed was very comfortable.
Plus side is this hotel is located within walking distance (about 3 blocks) from the Oregon Convention Center, and the basketball arena. There is a streetcar line half a block that will get you there or along the main downtown loop, as well. But the location isn't someplace I'd be comfortable after dark. It's also rather noisy. But our room was clean, Wifi was decent, there was a fridge, too. If needs required, I'd stay there again, but only after checking for someplace else first.
First time ever visit to USA and first time ever stayed in a motel next to an interstate - chose this motel due to proximity to the Oregon Convention Centre - about 10 min walking distance and also due to breakfast availability; easy to access to public transport; has ample parking space; breakfast was Coffee; Orange juice and assorted packets of cinnamon snail - not great to write about it - but for those on a budget something to start the day with; I took non-smoking room which was decent - except that it rattled whenever a high speed vehicle passed by - got used to it in few nights - but still not a good thing for those sensitive to sound/vibration. Overall a nice and clean motel with close proximity to Moda centre, Convention Centre.
A last minute stay in Portland, we choose this place due to the proximity to the train station and the price. Reasonable rates, nice clean room, friendly staff, and the streetcar stops right in front of the hotel. Loved it! We had an upstairs corner room, so nice an private and lots of space.
