I liked the service. Everybody was so nice. I did not like that looks very old, and doesn't look very clean. You can hear very easy people from other rooms. I didnt like that the room had a door to go to another room. Even being locked, you can hear everything from people.

Sliding glass doors screwed shut - fire hazard. No nice place to eat within walking distance. Stained carpets. Shower heads that don't work. 2 out of 3 ice makers broken. A nice Breakfast was included. They give out chocolate chip cookies at check in.

Our room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The light rail stop is right out front for convenient public transportation. This was my second time staying at this hotel and I will definitely stay here again next time I’m in Portland.

The hotel is okay, and the breakfast service is better than what I've experienced lately during COVID travel. The BIGGEST complaint I have is that this Hotel CHARGED me $13 to park my car! What a joke. There's plenty of parking I don't know why you would charged extra for parking my own vehicle. If I have to pay for parking, it better be Valet. Seriously?

The rating would have been higher except for the 1-2 fleas we found in the bed. It is a pet-friendly hotel, so maybe the previous guests brought them in. The food was good at breakfast. The e hallways are a bit industrial.

Thank you for staying with us. We are sorry to know you left with that impression and hope you will consider giving us another try, as we have 32 rooms that have been entirely renovated within the last year, and another 102 with new flooring and beds coming available in March. We would be grateful for the opportunity to win your favor with one of these improved rooms.

You have to pay for parking in Portland almost everywhere. Having to pay extra for parking while staying in a hotel is gouging your guests. The beds were reasonably comfortable even though they were foam mattresses. A/C worked fine. Front desk people were great. Expensive ($32) Rib Eye at the hotel tasted good but was full of gristle.

Thank you for staying with us. We are glad to know you appreciated the service you received from our staff. We are sorry to know that the parking fee left you feeling unjustly impacted, and we pride ourselves as one of the most affordable lots for overnight parking in downtown Portland, because our neighboring hotels charge $37-52 per night. If your travels bring you back to Portland, we hope you choose us again.
