This hotel is located about 5 minutes from the airport. The room was large and clean. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was very good. The pool was large and clean. The only drawback was the lack of restaurants within walking distance for dinner.
Arrived after midnight for short night stay prior to return flight. I selected this Best Western based upon: A. Medical provider discount B. Near PDX C. Free breakfast D. Reviews of cleanliness and quiet Great to say all above were very good! Room was clean, roomy and comfortable…sounds of the nearby tram sort of surprised me, but not an issue. Had called desk upon arriving in PDX at 2300 I would not arrive until after medical delivery was made, estimated 0100 arrival. Team was welcoming, recognizing my BW status..gave me a nice large room on the quiet back side. Breakfast was a treat…made to order tater tots, biscuit with gravy, and sausage…super! Very pleased with this stay! You don’t have to stay in an InterContinental or Radisson Blu every time…especially when you arrive late and leave early! Great job BW Pony Soldier Inn!!!!…
This was not a terrible place to stay, but given the price I would have expected a bit more. The good: The staff was friendly and helpful. The laundry was nice as they have 2 rooms, each with a locked door, so you ask for a key and then you can go relax in your room or by the pool or something while your stuff washes/dries without worrying about it being stolen. The breakfast was decent and had a fair number of options (sweet and savory, lighter and heavier). The ok: The room was mostly clean, but they clearly didn't clean under the desk as there was a bottle cap and food residue plainly visible when I pulled out the chair, and some previous occupant's food was still in the fridge as well. The not so great: This is a very sketchy neighborhood. They keep the lobby doors locked at all times and tell you to park in front to avoid your vehicle being broken into. The gas station across the street seemed to be the place for the locals to hang out/get high, and there was a giant chaotic trailer park (mostly RVs rather than mobile homes, all jumbled together rather than on nice lots) right behind the motel. I didn't feel unsafe while on the property, but I definitely worried about my rental car overnight.…
This is my fifth or so stay at this Best Western. We found it and return to it because of the proximity to our reason for being in Portland. Also it is comfortable at a reasonable price. This time we didn't have breakfast but in the past we found it to be very good. Check-in and -out went smoothly. The Sunday night person was harried as she was alone and there was much to do. There were plentiful luggage carts up front which I appreciated.
The location of this Best Western is great, just wish better parking for Harley’s though. They did let me park close to the building, but just not quite enough room to get into my bags easily. But I was able to and I felt it was safe were it was.
I stayed with my kids so we could catch an early flight. I was needing a shuttle and breakfast as we would be short on time. This hotel is in the ghetto and the lobby doors being locked 24/7 only confirmed that. Check in was horrible as the attendant was not pleasant at all. The hotel smelled horrible, I ended up seeing a room on the first floor that had several blowers set up trying to dry it out from an obvious water leak. The musty smell was overwhelming to say the least. The common areas were very warm, they even had the window open and a box fan at the front desk. My room was nasty, I mean a black tub and filthy mirrors. I even found trash under one of the beds. We did not get “breakfast” as advertised. We were given a paper sack with room temperature yogurt, water, frozen muffin and an over ripe banana. The shuttle however was reliable so we had no issues getting to the airport. …
The Hotel was conveniently located for sightseeing and getting around the area. It was clean and staff were pleasant. They offered a Hot breakfast buffet that is the largest I have seen to date. The check in clerk Belinda was pleasant and efficient. She helped us plan a couple of sightseeing tours we wouldn’t have planned. Great hospitality to visitors. I would definitely visit again.
Not bad for the price, should perhaps go down by $15 a night due to security issues (bad neighborhood) and terrible view of a trailer park, rooms that smell of dog and cigarettes. However, the bed was comfortable, staff got us into a room that didn't smell, staff was tired and a bit grumpy but who wouldn't be working there, they do tell you to park out front so your car isn't broken into and tell you there is an issue with security. Pool was fun and clean. Breakfast hot and good. Clean hotel.
Stayed 3 nights in 3 rooms - Not because I wanted too. Because I had to! If you stay here, bring batteries, a plunger, a working tv remote and your cleaning supplies. Oh yeah, don’t forget your earplugs!
Need to fly out of PDX early in the morning? These lovely people will provide you with a delicious breakfast, tasty, wake-you-up coffee, and a van ride to the airport! Have a minute? Take a dip in the outdoor pool! A great little find to make our next exit from Oregon easy-peasy. The staff are super nice and helpful. Real people. Thank you!
