So I bought this hotel room for a one night stay in Portland. First off not close to Portland. Second scary as hell! People coming up to doors banging on them. People randomly ealking in the parking lot. Horrible traffic. Horrible customer service. Guy told me to pretty much deal with all the problems. Dont stay here ever!!!!

After the 4.5 star hotel my boyfriend and I were supposed to have stayed in booked us a month too early and left us out in the cold we searched 2 1/2 hours to find another place to stay.

Filthy, horrible place. Meth addicts and homeless people in the hallways. None of the lights in the room worked. Faucet leaked. Toilet seat broken. Filthy towels. Raging party of 30 meth addicts going on upstairs, domestic violence happening next door. Noisy street with semi-trucks. Hallways, stairs and room have never been cleaned, ever. Carpet stained, mattress stained, sheets had holes... More

Price was good but that was it. Not really close to anything although many ff resturants nearby. Room was very basic. Good selection of cable TV channels. Room was very noisy due to location near the road. Free WiFi connection to the internet was down for my entire 3 day visit.

The hotel is nice, the room was clean and has bathroom.... it's very cheap, but don't have elevathor, so, if you have big luggages (like me), I suggest to stay in the first floor. It's near from a big outlet...

I made the reservation via Southwest's vacation option. This hotel is right in the middle of ghetto Oregon. I pulled up and noticed that this was not where I wanted to sleep immediately. The gang of rough looking individuals hanging outside was the first clue. This place had a horrible smell and the floor was not something I wanted to... More

The bed was terrible- hard as a rock. I had no idea they made beds this hard. Room was tiny, window was left open w/ no heat on so it was freezing when we walked in. 2 out of 3 lamps were not plugged in with no outlet nearby TO plug them into. Front desk person was exceedingly rude when... More

No Internet, hard beds, constant noise and traffic. Lamps with no wall plugs, too much furniture for the spaces, and, yes, not enough parking! I would also not recognize it based on these pictures. Nothing good to say. And, why a minimum number of 200 characters?
