Holiday Inn Express Portland - Jantzen Beach
Ranked #67 of 144 Hotels in Portland
Reviewed 16 February 2012

We have stayed at this hotel twice. It can be difficult to find if you aren't familiar with Jantzen Beach. Nonetheless, it is only five minutes from I-5. It takes 15 minutes to get from the hotel to PDX and it is convenient to both downtown Portland and Vancouver. There are many restaurants and shops on Jantzen Beach that make the location interesting.
We have always found the front desk to be helpful. The rooms are quiet and clean. Being off the freeway has its advantages. There is no freeway noise.
We have made a reservation to return next month.

This hotel is tucked behind some big box stores but is easy to locate. Once at the hotel you are well removed from any of the freeway noise, airport noise, and even the hustle and bustle of the nearby stores. Common areas and guest rooms were well attended to. I did not take advantage of the exercise room or pool during this trip but they look to be above average for this level of accomodation. Breakfast bar offers a great variety of continental items as well as a few of the breakfast staples like eggs, bacon, pancakes. 3-4 minute drive across the river to downtown Vancouver, WA where our event was being held. Location was perfect for our needs on this trip.

We stayed in the Jantzen Beach HIE in January and were very pleased. Very clean, quiet, good breakfast, comfy bed, etc. No complaints whatsoever.

Stayed a long weekend at this Holiday Inn property recently for the second time in a year and had the same basically more than satisfactory experience both times. Depending on your plans, since the hotel is on an island on the Columbia River between Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington, the location is a little out of the way for access to anything in the Portland metro area apart from what may be going on in Jantzen Beach. It’s only a few minutes from Portland airport or from Portland Meadows; but there are many other lodging choices adjacent to those destinations. Fifteen minutes will easily get you to downtown Portland.

The hotel is clean, quiet, and well maintained. Check in and check out was fast and efficient. I did not notice any issues with my reservation or my bill. My room was pretty roomy and had a small microwave, small fridge, and LCD television with only basic cable choices. The complimentary wi-fi worked fine all weekend. There is also guest PCs in the hallway next to the lobby though I didn’t actually see any guests use it all the time I was there. There were relatively few guests both times I was stayed at this property but they appeared to be mostly those on family vacations rather than on business.

In case you’re interested, the complimentary breakfast consists of basic hot entrees such as scrambled eggs or cheese omelets, bacon or sausage patties, and biscuits & gravy. The gravy was a little thin but acceptable. You may be interested by the pancake machine that will dispense somewhat flattened pancakes with the push of a button. The breakfast coffee was fine. The hotel offers a pool and a fitness center that looked ready for use. Also, a guest laundry with coin operated washing machine and dryer. Plenty of free parking just outside. I noticed several guests smoking just outside the entrance but apart from that the hotel itself is smoke free and smelled clean and cancer free.

The hotel is in a part residential and part retail area. There is precious little that a guest might actually want to go to close by. The shopping center looks like it’s dwindling but still has a Best Buy, Target, Staples, and several other stores. Down the street in Jantzen Beach there are more choices like a Denny’s, a McDonald’s, a Safeway’s, and a Hooter’s. There are even more choices heading north into Vancouver, WA or south into the Portland Airport region.

I would recommend this property as providing a more than acceptable lodging experience in the north Portland area with good access to events in Vancouver, Washington or north Portland.

We had not planned to stay overnight in PDX but circumstances caused us to be looking for a motel room on a foggy Saturday night. What a comforting sight, the brightly lit motel and entrance. Check-in was not fussy, and the room was great, spacious. Everything you need, super clean, comfortable mattress and bedding. We felt like we had entered a safe harbor in a storm. The area is quiet, and it did not feel unsafe. The management noticed we had a light on in our car and notified us before we went to sleep. Nice! The price was very reasonable. The breakfast was much better than the usual fare you get in such motels. Tho' we did not use the pool, it looked bright and fun! We will stay here again when we have occasion to overnight in PDX.
