This Holiday Inn is conveniently located close to freeway access and an easy walk to the shops and restaurants on NW 23rd. Pros: Location, free parking, clean, staff good, free wifi, breakfast and exercise room and pool. Cons: Can get pretty expensive at times for a Holiday Inn, the free breakfast is surpassed by other hotels chains in offerings and...

We stopped for one night thinking it was in the fun downtown area. It was right off the freeway in an industrial area. Roadwork was going on all night. At least they gave us ear plugs. The staff was very nice as always at Holiday Inn Express hotels. We always have a good experience with them. The beds are very...

The hotels of this brand excel by the standard of comfort and offer assorted breakfast, served in a pleasant atmosphere Although it is easily accessible by main roads, this hotel allows you to walk on foot in a picturesque neighborhood with many points of interest

Overall, I WOULD HAVE given a higher star however, very disappointed in honesty of housekeeping. Yes it was my mistake to leave a sweater behind but when you call the very next day and four days later speaking with the housekeeping manager about said sweater that just poof, disappeared, it became clear it was my word against the housekeeping. Note...

Very pleasant and helpful front desk. Good location adjacent to Burgersville and close to good shopping destinations. Nice clean rooms. But for the din of the traffic on the Freeway stay was rather calm and peaceful. Loved the temperature controlled pool. A microwave-ready dish with the in-room microwave would be great.

Decided to hit the trailblazer game last minute on the evening of November 26th. Spoke with Elise over the telephone and headed south to Portland with two kids in tow.

The location is very convenient, being right at the bottom of the highway exit ramp and they have good onsite parking. The hotel seems to have been recently renovated, check in was without issue, and my room was large and clean. Breakfast was included, and was a hot buffet. Some days the eggs were premade cheese omelets, which I liked...
