We have stayed at this LaQuinta many times as it is very convenient to the Rose Garden arena, convention center, and the MAX line (it's only a few minutes ride to downtown Portland). Parking is free and the breakfast does the job, so we find it to be a great deal.
In the past we have noticed a mildewy odor that has been noted in previous reports, and it was with a little trepidation that I booked it but it was only $71 and we needed it for just one night. Turned out the odor is gone and while the motel doesn't look like much from the outside, the service was great and the room was fine. The bed was soft but comfortable and the rest of the room was clean and comfortable. The toilet and shower are separate from the vanity (something I always like) but the shower is very small (I think we've had other rooms with a larger shower/rub but can't quite remember). Wireless internet is good but one must get a password from the desk. Parking is in the outside courtyard area and underground and we did notice a security guard in the parking area when we returned about 10:00 pm.
Breakfast was good with waffles, biscuits, gravy, cereals, bagels, toast, apples, and hard-boiled eggs, and is available 6:30, Mon-Fri, and 7:00 Sat/Sun.
If traffic noise bothers you, request a room on the north or south side. Our room faced the parking courtyard (south side) and with the window closed we heard no noise at all. Rooms on the east and west side are on the busy boulevard but they do quiet down at night.
All in all we find it a good deal and for the location and price, can't be beat. Other hotels in the area are much more expensive and parking is extra.
