Loved this hotel as it was quite and close to the max station. Staff friendly and helpful. Clean and easy to get to. We took the Max into Portland for the day. It was only 2 blocks from the hotel. Loved all the flowers.

Decent, clean, comfortable, quiet, cheaper than Downtown Portland, and only a few blocks from the light rail. At the end of the line so it did take a good 40 min to get there from the airport. Also close to an Enterprise Rent A Car if you decide to get a car to go to Multnomah Falls which is only...

The good: The gentleman at the desk was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The bad: The hotel is overpriced ($160 for single King) doesn't have an elevator; it's pretty old; room very small; bathroom tiny; older decor . . . that being said, the room was clean and was acceptable as a place to simply spend the night to sleep. I...

The Pony Soldier was a very comfortable clean hotel. Our visit had two issues. One was resolved. The other is a continued negative issue voiced in multiple reviews through different services. We had a rare visit to the area when it was 100 degrees. The air conditioner in our first room did not function correctly. When called the manager came...

A dump ,not up to clarion standards. Musty, bad bed, nothing good to say. Husband and I made a reservation for 4 nights, didn't even stay one of them as I walked in, payed on bed, walked out and decided to go down the street to another hotel which was a great experience! Don't waste your time here!

Called to cancel my reservation 5 days ahead of time and was told cancellations had to be made 30 days ago. Really? I've never heard of this before. I will never go there again. This is unbelievable since another review here was complaining they had to receive their cancellation by 3pm the day before.

We ran into an issue at 1:15 AM with a severe allergy reaction at a bed and breakfast that we were staying in so I started making calls. I called the Clarion and they were very helpful in accommodating us. When we arrived the desk clerk showed us a couple of rooms and helped us get checked in and settled....

I guess you can no longer trust Trip Advisor. This listing clearly states "pet friendly ". However when we arrived here with a reservation, they would not rent us a room because they don't accept pets. The clerk was not very helpful. We did drive down the street to Day's Inn & get a room there. They were very nice...

This was my third and last stay in Gresham, a community that appears seedier and less safe each time I've been through. The motel is a short walk from the eastern terminus of the MAX Blue Line, a walk that is not advisable after dark. A walk down cheerless, ill lit corridors lead to an equally cheerless and ill lit...

I stayed here with my brother when we arrived (from AK & MT, respectively) for my son's wedding in mid-August, 2015. We had originally been booked at a different hotel (Howard Johnsons) but after 2 horrid days there, we switched to this one. I was never so happy in my life. (and it was only 1.5 miles from my son's...
