“Very Nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2009

I always love a HIE! As expected, the bedding was especially nice and clean. The mattress was a little bouncy tho. No real complaints about anything, however. The manager checked me in when I arrived and was very friendly. And they had fresh baked cookies and clam chowder in the lobby in the early evening!

The location is very convenient, just 10 miles from the airport and right off I84. It would be an excellent place to stay if you are planning on touring the Columbia River Gorge.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2009

We wanted to be close to Portland and the Gorge area, and this hotel was a good choice, being in the middle of the 2 areas. The highs: clean place, friendly front desk staff, great continental breakfast, decent value. The lows: our room lacked working light bulbs, kind of a busy, noisy place, navigating the streets around the hotel can be maddening if you're not used to the area.

This seems to be a popular hotel judging by the many people staying there. It is conveniently located and has a nice outlet mall nearby. Some restaurants in the area but not a whole lot, you can walk across the parking lot to Wendy's. Great breakfast in the morning with a nice area to sit and eat. Despite these positive points, I would never stay at this hotel again mainly because the whole third floor, including our room, smelled like a wet dog. I have allergies (as I noted when I made the reservation) but maybe all the two bedroom suites are on the smelly third floor. I had to open the windows in the room and sleep with them open to freshen the air even though it is right near a busy freeway. The carpet didn't look clean, the bathtub had a layer of soap scum, peeling wallpaer, and the sink had a brown ring stained around the drain. We saw at least three dogs exiting room on our floor so it is a good place for people with pets but not for those with allergies. Also, be aware that the two-bedroom suite is studio style and is basically one big room.

I stayed here while on business, so I just needed a clean place to stay. The Holiday Inn Express was great! Very nice breakfast with eggs, bacon, and juices. Free paper was nice also.

Drove up without a reservation at 10 PM and was greeted warmly and friendly by Clay. Said price was $99 and I said OK. He then asked me if I was a AAA member and I said yes. He reduced the rate to $89, which I did not even ask for. Room was great 3rd floor corner. Room was immaculate but cold at first since heat had been off. Breakfast provided was better than average for these hotels and the breakfast room was kept immaculate as well. Friendly staff. Not a bad location - had 2 meetings in Portland and it took 20 minutes to get to downtown. Nice to save a lot of money staying outside of downtown and still be close enough and have a good experience too. The only drawback was a small bathroom but I belive that is just how HI Expresses are an not an issue with this hotel. Will stay here again if we have the chance.

  • Liked — over cleanliness and comfort
  • Disliked — small bathroom
