The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Amenities were great, with expanded cable, DVD player, fridge and microwave, and especially very good wireless internet. The staff is very friendly and courteous, always willing to help with any problems I had. It is conveniently located close to the airport, a lightrail station and the interstate, but also sort of off the beaten path so it makes the surroundings quieter and not so busy. Some people have commented on the lack of either an exercise room or pool, but I think that is not really as important, especially in Portland, where trails and parks abound very close to everywhere, and you can still get your workout. For the price, this is a great motel and it is my go-to place to stay whenever I'm in the Portland area. What downsides I noticed were all fairly minor in nature and not really things the owners can be faulted for. The location, though convenient to the airport and other ground transportation, is still quite far out from the city center. There are train tracks across the street from the hotel, so once in a while you hear one go by. The parking lot can be a little tight, so be careful when pulling your car in or out.
My husband and I had a great stay here. The room was very nice and modern. It was clean and the bed and pillows were really comfortable. The staff was very friendly. Nordic Motel was much nicer than any motel I've ever stayed in. It's a bit of a trek to the downtown Portland area if you are going by public transit, but I already knew that when I booked it so I can't really complain. The train across the street is noisey in the morning but it doesn't run on the weekend so that wasn't really an issue either.
It was small and quiet. They won't refund my $20 deposit. I had to call my creditcard company to get it back. Such a pain and not worth the headache.
Updated, clean and neat. Owners were very nice. Would stay again.
Motel clásico en una gran ubicación y un personal amable. No esperes lujos pequeños como jabones, el servicio de habitaciones o encimeras de mármol. Hay un montón de lugares cercanos, buen autobús y conexiones en bicicleta.
Gran ubicación, personal amable, recientemente renovado, está limpio. El baño es un poco anticuado.
Hotel was spotless & staff was amazing. My only complaint is the continental breakfast has few options and even fewer heathy choices.
Clean, bed was comfortable, friendly staff, easy to find Breakfast was okay, because it was close to the airport you could really hear the planes taking off
Knowing that we had booked a motel based on a lower price we weren't expecting a luxurious motel . With that said we were greeted with very friendly and helpful staff and a clean room . The location was ideal and it was quiet . The shower was not working well .
The waffles and the shuttle service as well as the room/tv channels A bit far from the max but luckily the shuttle service takes people to the airport stop and picks them up when you call
Bad breakfast, curtains were softer than the comforter.
We booked a 1-King-bed room. Our 5yr old grandson ended up coming with us, so we called & asked if we could switch rooms. The very pleasant woman said, "Oh, you don't need to - there's a hide-a-bed in the room." When we arrived after 9pm, tired after driving all day, the man at the front desk said they don't even have hide-a-beds anymore. We were forced to pay $10 more for the last 2-queen room. Irritating.
For the money, this was a great value! The price was so much better than the airport hotels, and it was only a few exits SW of downtown on I-5. The property was VERY clean, very nice and well-kept. For an independently owned hotel, the owners have obviously worked very hard to keep pace with the offerings of the major chains. I would definitely recommend. I do wish the breakfast was a little more robust (eggs, or bacon or sausage), but really the food was fine for the price we paid for the room. No complaints, really.
People at the desk were very friendly. The area had a couple sketchy characters about and the night desk clerk roved the premises for safety. Loved that since I was walking the dog alone. Overall a great stop for the cheap cost.
Proprietor Harry was extremely responsive when we complained about room and switched us immediately.
location good Smell from cleaning spray and previous smoker. Mattress lumpy
The employees were friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Great location! Food carts across the street. Cheap bread and cheap muffins for breakfast. When we pulled the sheets back to get into bed, they had food and short, curly hairs on the sheets.
Conveniently located for visit to family members and close to desired activities, as well as ease of public transportation. Little selection for continental breakfast and few options for breakfast close by during weekend visit.
Mantas olían a cigarrillo. Las sábanas tenían agujeros de cigarrillo. Mantas con pelos por todas partes. El mando estaba pegajoso. El peor hotel en el que estuve en toda mi vida. Dormí sin mantas ni almohadas. Muy sucio e incómodo. Situado cerca del aeropuerto. Pero aparte de eso nada más fue positivo
Cheapest available. Escorts out front. Bed bugs. Cigarette smoke everywhere
Windows that open and freedom to smoke. Quality of guest rooms and the aroma of the hotel.
Location is convenient I suppose. Extremely dirty, the people hanging around the parking lot and hallways looked like they were either on drugs or about to stab someone, room was filthy - dirty sheets, stains everywhere, holes in the tiles and wall, cigarette burns in the blankets - seriously felt so uncomfortable. Just the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. The front desk is a tiny window with probably bullet proof glass which I don't blame them for using given the people who come by. Next time I wouldnt stay here even if it was free.
