This is consistently one of the cheapest places to stay in the Portland area. Rental car or other vehicle is a must, as taxis are quite expensive. But anyway I stayed here in August. Back in June I stayed at the nearby Howard Johnson and that was nice. The Super 8 chain is supposed to be slightly a step down below HoJo from what I understand (since it's the same parent company, Wyndham), but I liked the Super 8 a lot better. The breakfast is great, considering it's free.
The rooms are pretty good. Beds are comfortable, sheets are clean and everything. Sure, the room might not be spotless (especially the bathroom) but you shouldn't seriously expect 5-star quality at a 2-star motel. I stayed in a double room the first night and a king bed room the second night. The king bed was nicer and that room had a recliner and a fridge.
The staff here are phenomenal. I had booked the rooms on two different websites, so I had to sort of check out and re-check in; but during breakfast I asked and by 10:30 they called me in my room to say the new room was ready. They also bake cookies daily and have them at the front desk, although usually they run out around 9pm (as I learned the hard way last time). Breakfast starts at 5 or 6 I think, so if you're on an early morning flight you're almost out of luck -- there's a 24/7 Burger King right next door. Nonetheless, this was one thing I liked about the Super 8 -- the HoJo had a restaurant and a Friendly's, so no free breakfast (you got a substantial (20-30%) discount with your room key). A free breakfast is always better than a free-ish one ;)
The parking lot goes around the entire property, so you're able to park close to your room. I didn't go in the pool but you can see it from outside (huge windows -- which might be sorta creepy but I'm sure it's nice when it's a nice day out). It was large enough for several small parties to have enough space. Looked like a nice facility although you could smell the chlorine in the hall immediately outside of the pool area.
Overall, I think this place is a winner. Don't go in expecting too much and you will be pleased. I'm heading back to Portland in a few weeks and with all the promos that Wyndham Rewards is having, as well as the quality and value of this facility, I wouldn't consider staying anyplace else.
