The beds were super comfy, room was spacious, heater worked well and the staff were friendly. Location was perfect for us in walking distance to the moda centre, lloyd centre and the city train had a stop right out the front There was no faults to this accomodation.
Location Coffee maker in the room TV didn't work. Had to go get our own cups for the coffee in the room.
Staff was wonderful. Very helpful with suggestions on what to see, where to eat. Close to the train and I-84. Will definitely stay again. Need one more trash can in the room. :-)
This is a great place to stay if you're not going to spend a lot of time in the room. If you're here for business, or to adventure off into Portland then it's an excellent location. The room is very basic, including a bed, desk, dresser, TV, bathroom, and air conditioning. It's not particularly fancy, and I felt my room was a bit dim even with all the lights on. It didn't bother me but some people may feel it looks a bit spooky. If you're looking for something fancy, look elsewhere. For what I paid I think the room and location was excellent. It's a great basic place to spend the night. I particularly didn't care at all, because I was falling asleep right away every night, but if you're a light sleeper, stay away!! The Portland Trimet system runs very efficiently and you'll be hearing a rumbling sound every ten minutes. My room's shower unit also had a water temperature handle that was labeled incorrectly, so cold and hot were reversed. Potentially dangerous. But at least it was a good, hot shower when adjusted properly.
For the price I didnt like much of anything. It was noisy all night from traffic or the transit system. Felt almost unsafe even with the door locked. This is a last resort if ya need a spot to stay.
It had a TV Im almost certain the desk clerk stole my debit card. Management refuses to believe it could have been him
The people who work here are beyond friendly and inviting. This hotel is also in a great location.
Bed was comfortable The 5th floor seemed more like apartment complex. You could hear Hip-Hop music coming from some of the rooms, also people were knocking in our door around 8am for no apparent reason. The noise from the street did not let us sleep all night. We could hear, the train, the cars, people talking... It was like if the windows were open or non existing. The toilet was licking water everytime you flushed.
The room is nice and clean. The hotel has an old feel to it. Checkout was at 12pm. We decided to get breakfast before checking out at 8am. When we came back they has already started cleaning. I needed to use the bathroom and when I walked in everything was half cleaned and wet everywhere still. So disappointed with this. As I went to the bathroom the cleaning guy still proceeded to clean the room while my friend waited in the hallway. Weirdest experience ever...
Smelly. Squeaky bed unsafe location
The view from the top floor is gorgeous!
best price and clean enough. Room smelled a bit like perfume...probably for masking smoke smell. Opened windows and was fine.
Loved the location, and spacious beautiful rooms! Would LOVE to stay at the Clarion again! The only thing I didn't like is that our trip didn't allow us more time to enjoy the room!
Excellent customer service and amenities. The room was large, well organized and clean. This is the best hotel around for the price! The breakfast was good. However, I'm not a big fan of cheese on eggs. Maybe you could have two options -- one with cheese and one with plain cooked eggs.
It's a bit off the beaten path in terms of staying in Downtown Portland, but they run a free shuttle to the Max which makes getting into the city easy ($2.50) even if you don't want to drive the 15 minutes (although it takes a bit longer than 15 minutes). Perfect place to stay at a great price if you want to experience Portland without forking over $250/night for a hotel. Nothing.
the heating system was noisy.
i was in the second flor The rooms were pretty new I had a view towards the back and I liked it Pool look nice, but did not used it Breakfast was nice for a buffet, hot entries Beds were comfortable Except for not having a restaurant it was like a four star hotel My kids were in a separate room, they were happy i would even consider it for an extent it stay. Airport shuttle worked fine Nothing with the hotel The airport shuttle did not have a sign in front, so I had to guess a little, very minor quible
It was clean, the employees were fine..price was ok as well, I would say if you are ok with a mediocrity just cleanliness and a good price this is the place.. That's about it.. Otherwise if you want to feel like you are on vacation with a nice new comfy place then spend the extra 20-40 bucks a night and go with a more newer hotel. Dated hotel, it felt like a half @$$ remodel.. Bed and TV were up to date but tgat was it.. The wall paper,doors and bathroom were very dated; there were tears in wallpaper, all the doors were chipped up and there was a bit of mold around the tub chalking, also at the base of the tub the drywall was completely rotted, the room was just a bit dark and dingy for my taste..
It was clean. Everywhere except the rooms seemed renovated. Very bad location. Nothing nice around to do. The best place to eat in that neighborhood is like an old cafe. Nothing modern or fancy. The people who were stayin at the hotel weren't that decent either.
The shuttle driver to the airport was friendly. The booked me in a smoking room. The smell was so overpowering that I asked to have the rooms changed. They said no because "that was what was booked on orbitz" and didn't have any other rooms. I don't smoke and would not book a smoking room intentionally. there was no screen on the window. I felt sick in the morning. I travel a lot for work and have never complained about a room before.
You won't get any sleep unless you're on the top floor (so you can't hear the ppl stomping around above you) and nowhere near the constantly beeping elevator. Had to switch room three times until finally getting a good nights sleep in 419. i wouldn't stay here again unless I could get one of the 4 decent rooms.
My husband and i planned a weekend away just the two of us, kids free in Portland for the Washougal nationals. We stayed at another motel the night prior, and had the most horrible experience ever. The wonderful girl at the front desk was so helpful and wonderful. They treated us so nicely. The room was fantastic. We were able to get a king room suite that day. After we checked in at about 10:30, we got right up to our room and went right back down to the wonderful hot tub and pool. The room was clean and wonderfully put together. The hotel is beautiful.
Quick and efficient. Was there for an extended layover at PDX. Shuttle picked me up and dropped me off on time and had a comfortable sleep.
Great room, amenities and proximity to airport Scheduled a wake up call but it never came. Important for a hotel for travelers and business professionals.
It is very close to the airport. In spite of its proximity to the airport, very little about our stay seemed accommodating or helpful. The front desk person, Scott, said that we'd need to be upstairs if we wanted both of our rooms on the same floor. He failed to mention that there was no working elevator in the building. When we asked him about it, he almost seemed to blame us for choosing the second floor. He was rude, the entire hotel smelled of smoke, the carpets were dirty, and nothing looked updated since the 1960s when it was built. We only had a 15 hour layover, and still, I don't think I'd say here again if it was free.
Everything was well worth it for the price. Pillows!!! They were not very comfortable, very lumpy.
I needed a place close to the airport and it was great for that. But it was so dirty. The hallways and lobby were bad, so I hoped my room would be better. Not. Drawers were open, bedding was torn, carpet was nasty and the room wouldn't get cool. I wouldn't stay there again.
Service Paper thin walls
The place was a dump, inconvenient location, dirty, unpleasant staff, damage everywhere. Just terrible in every way. Everything.
Location Hotel was under major remodeling and not coordinated with occupied rooms Facility has not been maintained for a number of years rooms were damaged from neglect and use TV channels minimal and few local channels electrical outlets pulled from wall and we had to constantly go to front desk to get power back on because of remodeling work Restaurant was minimal staff and menu Emergency exit from hallway to exterior for our room was blocked by construction Parking was shared with park and ride use finding parking space near building was not always available
It was a convenient location near the airport. Room was clean and the staff were friendly. It's nothing fancy but does the job if you just need a quick place to stay before heading to the airport. They have a airport shuttle option which is nice to use as long as its not full. Check-in early to secure a spot on the shuttle. We were counting on using the shuttle service but when we arrived all the shuttle spots were taken for a large portion of the morning. The only available shuttle was leaving at 3am and would arrive many, many hours earlier than we needed to be at the airport, which was unrealistic for me. (I cherish my sleep.) Later they ordered a second shuttle to accommodate everyone which would have been nice. However they did not inform us and we had already made other costly arrangements to get to the airport. It would have been nice to know that a second shuttle was even an option. The pool/gym are not great.
Close to MAX light rail and shuttle to airport. Staff was rude, black mold everywhere, poor amenities, dry wall falling apart in rooms. Horrible smell in hallways. Noises at all time of day and night. Horrible if you are going for a real vacation.
Very clean, friendly staff and a good rate. I had a good stay!
The price There is no elevator in this hotel
Close to airport Little old, needs updating
This hotel is perfect for an overnight before a flight. Fly and go parking. In the middle of renovations. A lot of dirt and grime. Even in the rooms.
Really enjoyed the salt water pool and hot tub. Also got a room with a great view of downtown. The bed was comfortable and the rest of the room was really clean. Only wish that it wasn't right next to the moda center. And they charge you $19 a night for parking, which is really ridiculous to me.
Not a lot. High price hotel with only the convention center to offer as an attraction. Not many attractions within walking distance. Auto rental was 3x what I usually pay I would not return to this hotel
Great location, great service, very comfortable and clean. Our original room had a small window frame gap which let a small amount of very cold air in (it was 30f outside). When we reported it to the front desk, they moved us to a separate room and even upgraded us to a bigger room. The second room didn't have the same problem. We were very pleased.
Very easy access to the mass transit, easy walking distance to downtown Portland and Saturday market A bit industrial in that specific location, but not too much so.
Coffee was okay in the room Kinda reasonably priced. Kind of dirty. Thin walls. There are much better places to stay in Portland.
pleasant atmosphere courteous clean helpfu; to elderly couple prompt with service and recommendations overall - l a good experience would definitely stay again. nothing
Great housekeeping, clean rooms, affordable prices. We thought this was closer to actual downtown, confusing name. the price of parking is ridiculous. We found free spots near the hotel but walking in the cold wasn't fun.
Responsiveness of staff; nice to have a frig and microwave; very clean room. Everything was fine!
Blood stains on sheets. #NuffSaid
Staff was very efficient. Nothing
Lower cost than other area airport hotels Easy access to airport The room was not totally clean (cracker on floor and a sticker on the night stand) but otherwise was fine Beds sag at edge near night stand
Convenient to shopping and restaurants. Affordable and pet friendly. We arrived a bit early but we got checked in and room was available right away. Great value hotel.
Shuttle service and parking packages the best!
location to the airport. Body hair behind the bathroom door, holes in the wall where a picture once hung, noise doors from other guest coming and going form there rooms, food selection in the restaurant was limited and in quality, I would eat off site, the power plugs in the night stand lamp were shot, they would not hold my chargers in them.
Comfortable quiet dark rooms for sleeping Breakfast needs to be available earlier or at least some cereal and fruit
The bed was comfortable and clean. The room was definitely very well serviced by the standards of a typical 2 star hotel. The morning shuttle driver was incredibly friendly and helpful, and most of the staff I encountered were great. The hotel was fine as a place to crash for a single night. Unfortunately I had to stay for a couple nights, but it wasn't too bad even so. The air-freshener used in the hallway is the same one used by many porta-potty companies. Hence, the hallway reminded me of an outhouse. Might want to work on that.... The windows are NOT sound blocking - and the hotel is at the foot of the runway, so if jets bother you, this will be a problem (PDX is pretty quiet from 11pm to 5/6am though, luckily) There was an outdoor light mounted just outside my window that had an incredibly loud transformer hum, which was very very annoying. Walkability is incredibly low. You will need a car here if you want to go get food, unless you're cool with walking about a mile to the local restaurants (you can take the shuttle also, which I didn't do as I do like to walk and the weather was nice.) The rooms do NOT exclude external sounds very well. Doors slamming up and down halls are clearly audible and startlingly loud at times. Conversation of people walking by, etc. Overall, it's more that the hotel is ALMOST an excellent 2 star hotel than anything particularly bad.
Very good service
The hotel is closely located to the airport and provides a very timely shuttle to and from the airport. The workers at reception are accommodating and the rooms are clean. Unfortunately, they don't offer any sort of continental breakfast in the morning. There is a restaurant next door, but unfortunately it wasn't open when I was looking for a piece of fruit and some toast in the morning. There were no luggage carts available when I first arrived which was an inconvenience as I was traveling with a lot of gear for work, and since I arrived late, reception was unable to assist me with my bags to my room.
Our stay at the Red Lion Hotel was a good experience. The hotel is close to the airport and the staff is friendly.
We travel to town to catch Portland trailblazers games at the Moda center and always prefer to stay here. The rooms aren't as up to date, stylish and updated as the lobby, restaurant and bar.
I like the staff. They were helpful and giving. Very nice and professional. The food was good as we had room service. I didn't like a 230am fire alarm that was tripped. I didn't like the fact Kayak did not express the 24.00 a night parking and valet. The front desk lady who was very nice at check in gave us 25.00 in food and drink vouchers. The valet also said street parking was free and available after a certain time. I tipped them good.
The hotel staff was the friendliest and most accommodating group of people. $25 per night valet parking was annoying
Rooms had a great view & lots of space
For $250.00 plus tax for 1 person I would have liked an extended continental breakfast included in the room rate
Nice hotel with outdoor space that has fire pit. Recommended.
Hair dryer did not work, the desk chair was broken, the breakfast was a caricature of bad hotel breakfasts. Still, the bed was comfortable, and the room was clean,
Staff great! Check-in counter and limo drivers knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. They wanted a "early check-in fee" before 3p.m. No previous knowledge thereof. "Continental" breakfast quite limited.
ExcEllenton rooms that were big and clean Not a lot of food options close by
Beds were surprisingly comfortable, bathroom very clean. Air conditioning was phenomenal. Very quiet hotel. Staff over the phone very helpful and kind. Safety deposit was not refunded and price not mentioned anywhere on website. Breakfast room was small and cramped, but food not permitted to be taken back in rooms. Building itself could use an upgrade.
The location was central to the air port and stadium. The parking lot was littered with beer cans. The room next to ours was rented to a group of teenagers throwing a party. Loud music and yelling/laughing/smoking out of the balcony/slamming doors/pounding on the walls until 5am. We called the front desk 4+ times asking to be moved or to have the party kicked out, neither of which happened. We only got 2 hours of sleep. The next morning we asked for a refund for the night and to let us cancel our reservation to move to a different hotel but we were told that only a manager can give out refunds. This was Saturday morning-so no manager would be onsite for 4 days? Getting only 2 hours sleep ruined our entire day.
good water pressure. breakfast was decent Heater didnt work and the TV and Internet was in and out.
Nice mattresses, friendly helpful staff Pool was closed even though listed as an amenity. Breakfast room was very crowded, but the staff kept it well stocked.
Fast check in Hotel room was very small, bad neighborhood, no vending machines on property, maintenance needed on shower head, blood on towels and very limited.... coffee pot in room not washed after previous people.and no elevators..no bed spread on bed..just overall not worth the money
Continental breakfast was impressive - easily the best thing about it. I don't know what everyone else is complaining about. I went back for seconds and there was still tons left. Everything else was fine as expected. I don't stay in luxurious hotels, and this place had all the amenities I needed and expected. Pool was in disrepair, but I didn't mind for myself. If I had small children with me, I would have been more worried, but that was not the case.
Breakfast options were awesome! Morning staff was really nice and friendly. Price was decent. Night staff is TERRIBLE. I chose this hotel in part for the airport shuttle. Next time I'll get a cheaper hotel and use Lyft. I called the hotel for pickup after getting my luggage. "Our driver will be there in 10 minutes!" Sat and waited for 30 minutes and nothing. Called them again and they said there was an accident by the airport and the driver was stuck in traffic. Funny how I saw the shuttles for their competitors nearby go by more than once and how Google Maps and Waze showed no traffic between the hotel and the airport. Van shows up 55 minutes after my original call, driver has his leftovers box in the seat next to him. That answers that question. They could've been honest and I would have just had dinner at the airport instead of sitting on concrete smelling exhaust. No apology, no friendliness, and at the end of the ride he gave me a "where's my tip?" look, followed by a dirty look when he got nothing. Needed more soap in the room and night staff acted like that was the biggest inconvenience in the world - after making me wait 5 minutes. Outside of the building by the entrance steps it smelled strongly of urine. Disgusting. Maintenance on the rooms is bare minimum. Exhaust fan in bathroom didn't work, a couple of the CFL bulbs were dim/half burned. Caulking on the tub was sloppy, crappy patching on drywall. Plugs in bedroom all taken by old power strips. WiFi slooooow. BOTTOM LINE: I am price-conscious and wanted the breakfast and airport shuttle for convenience. I'd have spent the same amount and been better off getting a no-frills motel and using Lyft for a shuttle and buying breakfast somewhere. Convenience doesn't come easy when the staff has a can't be inconvenienced attitude.
We were picked up in short order from airport. Off site a couple of miles overall building is older style with needed upkeep and updates. Walking into main lobby just unkept and around the breakfast area had not been cleaned at 10 pm. Rooms were moderate at best unfortunately as my wife and I lay in bed we both sank to the middle. It needs replacing. Ample breakfast area still had not been cleaned. Staff was the real ace they were very good!
Room was above some machines that ran all night. I could not sleep because of the noise.
The room was small but clean and the bed was perfect. We got delicious chocolate cookies when checking in.
Location is great - right next to a nice, big, mall, restaurants, a park across the street. Parking garage is covered and not overpriced. 2am woman screaming at BF in hallway but hotel security responded immediately and ended the drama quickly.
The concierge/bellman Big Al was the best I have ever had, great guy, very informative, great representative of the hotel. Yes the AC in our room did not cool it down.
Convention going on of young adults no longer with addictions. It was like walking through a lobby of street kids. Lots of people smoking right outside of the door. Loud music. Not the ideal group that the hotel should be hosting. Made me feel very uncomfortable and not safe.
Hotel room was clean, bathroom was a good size. Never got the cookies when I checked in....kinda sucked. Bath tub was a little old looking. Location wasn't great if you're looking to do downtown portland.
Close to freeway and airport but without the noise. Big rooms, nice restaurant & lounge. Indoor pool and spa was fantastic.
Great value for your money
The two women at the front counter must have not been having a good day. Both were unfriendly. When my friend asked to clarify a signature on a form the woman at the counter told her as if deaf that the car owner needs to sign the form. The room was clean and big however the A/C made loud noises. You could hear the planes landing or taking off if A/C system was not on.
I liked the location close to the airport and the value. Hotel had a free shuttle to the airport and free breakfast. Felt a little dated, but generally ok. Breakfast could have been a bit earlier - I didn't get to take advantage of that, as I left shortly after 6 am.
Great place. My wife is very picky and she was happy. Good breakfast and very clean. A little old but very clean
We stayed for one night at his hotel. We had dropped someone off at the airport at 7 am and we're just driving around Portland looking for something to do until we could check into the hotel at 3pm, I decided to call about noon and we were able to check in early that was such a life saver we were so tired!! The breakfast INCLUDED in the room rate was more than I expected, Hot omelets, potatoes and sausage as well as normal hotel breakfast items. It was a great stay and the price made it even better! Will most definitely be going back if we need to stay in Portland again.
Staff was accommodating enough. Breakfast was not good. Biscuits and gravy with what looked like the prior days leftovers. Pool was green and so cloudy that you couldn't see the bottom. The staff said that they had "just tested the water and it was fine." There is no way it was fine! Our little one looks forward to the pool time and there was no way we could have swam without major health risks.The rooms are shabby and not Cleaned well, lots of hair left through and crumbs on the sofa. STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE! We left after the first night!
The staff was friendly and helpful with maps of the area and suggestions for transportation. The hotel was close to the airport and our room was big and very clean. I expected to hear more of the planes taking off, but didn't. The bed was very comfortable. I was surprised when I opened the curtains and had a view of many spider webs outside the window, hanging off the eaves on the 4th floor. Breakfast the next morning was disappointing and dry, with eggs that were square and looked a bit like styrofoam.
A courteous shuttle driver picks you up at the airport (and drops you off again when your stay is over). Reception is polite and efficient and the rooms are clean, well-appointed and reasonably large. Breakfast is just OK but it's free. I stayed on two separate nights recently. I had to leave at 5AM the second time, which was too early for my free breakfast. Bummer.
Nice big room, clean, near airport. Paper and plastic cups for coffee and water.
Staff is friendly Beds are mediocre. Sheets and mattress both
Vintage motel in great location with friendly staff. Don't expect fancy little soaps, room service or marble countertops. Lots of fun places nearby, good bus and bike connections.
great location, nice staff, newly renovated, clean. the bathroom is a little dated.
The staff was very accommodating, they allowed us to check in a few hours before check in time so that we could freshen up and explore the city! The location of this motel was great, we could have walked to the convention center (where we attended comic con, the reason for our visit), and most uber rides downtown were around 7-10 dollars! There were also a few decent restaurants within walking distance! I definitely recommend breakfast and J and M. While the actual location of the hotel was great, it did get a bit noisy at night, with or without open windows.
Great location, close to downtown. Staff was friendly, rooms appeared clean. A little noisy at night. The room smelled heavily of perfumed air freshener. The bathroom had what appeared to be fruit flies.
Clean, comfortable room, excellent desk service, location was where I needed it to be... not a 4 star hotel, but it didn't need to be. Perfect.
Great location. Free WiFi. No frills. Minimal room, but comfortable beds with good service and a clean atmosphere. It's an older motel, so it definitely has a run-down feel. For my trip (visiting Portland with a friend to go enjoy the city, nightlife, etc) this was perfect. It's confusing to find parking (small lot) and to get around the motel.
The location was extremely convenient for going across the river (by bus or car) to the Pearl, Nob Hill and Downtown districts. Also, the immediate vicinity was good, as the hotel is very near to the Jupiter Hotel and Doug Fir Lounge and Restaurant, which has good breakfasts and a nice nighttime bar. The rooms were clean and functional - and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. I give this hotel my top rating! No complaints.
The best part about it is the location, which is right in the heart of downtown Portland. Clean enough, though not anything fancy. Seemingly nice staff. Noisy. A little sketchy. Didn't feel 100% safe there.
The room itself was large and pretty comfortable. The restaurant had better food than expected. Free breakfast and drink coupons were a plus. Firstly my reservation didn't go through for the intended night so I ended up having to book a second night with no refund or discount toward the intended night. I believe this to be the fault of kayak and it's booking service though, not the hotel. I called customer service and they offered no help. Secondly, the hotels pool/hot tub were shut down. That was the entire reason I booked this hotel, for the 24hr pool and hot tub. Essentially I ended up paying $250 for one night with no amenities. Very disappointing. Will not likely book through kayak again. Will not recommend.
The gigantic room... It's literally the biggest hotel room I've ever seen. Lots of space... went for long runs out in the industrial part of town. The "fitness center" was a joke, basically a tiny room (and it was directly in view of the front desk, so people can see you as they're checking in... awkward... also, it is located between the main hallway and the pool so I had people walking through as I was trying to lift weights... totally stupid. Other than that, the whole place wasn't really my scene. I got the heck out of there, and for $16 more, I was staying at the Courtyard by Marriott downtown on the 15th floor a block away from premium shopping, restaurants, nightlife, and food trucks galore! It was so much nicer.
Just a huge mess. Took forever for them to get our reservations. Then to switch rooms was a disaster. Then our card got charged on top of everything, at a time when we were not even at the hotel. Overall just a very frustrating experience
Excellent room, nice restaurant, good overall feel. We appreciated the complementary breakfast and evening drinks, but offering a free generic Coors doesn't cut it even though it's complementary! Please offer a choice of regional microbrews.
Pool area was nice and hot tub a treat. Restaurant was really good. Service was exceptional and staff kind. Room was old and tired. Big box tvs and strange little box tv in the bathroom. Lots of peeling wallpaper and carpet was totally worn out. They really should not be putting clients in some of these rooms.
Free breakfast and free drink at the bar. Staff in the restaurant was excellent. Old and out dated. Bedding needed to be replaced.
The room was spacious -- 3 TVs, though older models. The breakfast was excellent -- could choose between continental (right in the building) or their hot buffet breakfast next door. The room was a bit dated and noise out in the hall was quite loud, especially early in the morning as people were catching the shuttle to the airport.
My wife has stayed at this hotel several times in the past, she likes the location near the airport. My wife was traveling alone. After checking in, she was given key to room that was already occupied. She did not realize this until she went to take a shower and noticed a man's suitcase next to the desk. I was not happy when I heard this as this is both a safety and privacy issue. Contacted Shilo customer service, was told that I would get feedback shortly, but after 2 weeks had to re-contact them and wait another few days just to be told it was a "glitch" that was "highly unlikely to happen". What's highly unlikely is for any of my family or friends to stay at a Shilo Inn in the future.
If you just need a good nights sleep this is a great place for the money. Comfortable and has everything you need. Staff is very friendly and free shuttle to the airport is great. This hotel is dated in appearance. Could use some updating but everything worked well and it was clean.
We enjoyed the spacious rooms and the pool and hot tub We did not appreciate the condescending attitude received from both the front desk staff and the restaurant staff. Frustrated that "free breakfast" was advertised, but were only given enough coupons for 2 of the 3 days we stayed. Had to pay for the 3rd day. We were consistently treated as though we were inconveniencing the staff. Our kids were relatively well behaved, and we treated all staff with respect and kindness. Not sure what their problem was with us. Beds were extremely uncomfortable as well. I'm normally not a complainer, but our stay was not a good experience. Will not be staying at a Shilo Inn again. Steer clear if traveling with kids.
Large room with comfortable bed. High quality linens and towels. Friendly staff. Free breakfast in the restaurant was excellent. Great coffe Older hotel with very long hallways. Carpet was dated but clean. No mini bar
Spacious, convenient location Horribly outdated, old wallpaper peeling off the walls, looked like the last update was in the early 90's. We even had an old tube TV in the bathroom that didn't even work. Service was horrible. Upon check in and check out they barely spoke to us. I had to ask questions to get any information out of them about breakfast, check out time, etc. We were woken up by loud swearing and door pounding at about 2:30am. It went on for almost 20 minutes. Then when we left, found that someone vandalized our car in the parking lot. Horrible - we will never stay here ever again.
The decor was very unique - front desk staff very friendly Noise - didn't realize when I booked it how close it was to the airport & how noisy it was. Bed very hard, a/c really noisy, hard to sleep with it on, shower drain was really loud. I got in late, had to take a shower late at night & was afraid it would wake up people in the next room.
Business hotel near airport and shopping. Internet works well, staff is responsive and you can walk to a couple of restaurants and big box stores. It has a bar and small menu if you don't feel like leaving. Pool and workout room. Everything you need for a few days or week long business trip or weekend getaway. Close to public transportation if you want to go downtown and don't want to drive.
design and staff
The room was very nice and if my wife with me I know she love it mite she room could have been lil bigger Ah little more bigger room that it
The room equipment and comfort are very good. Nice furniture design.Fitness and poll very accessible and convenient. Location at airpot is ery convenient (train for portland down town and malls accessible by foot. The bar is open and welcoming. Breakfast is not included but moreover you need to pass to the cashier for paying like in a supermaket. Plus the coffee is not free (each cup is 2$, even the refill). It does not fit at all with the hotel style.
I just stayed one night due to having a very early flight next day. This is a very modern hotel with a boutique hotel feel. There is a bar in the lobby but I didn't see a restaurant but they have a snack bar but it's best described as an open air mini-bar with the high prices - no complementary snacks to guests. The staff were very nice and helpful. The rooms were modern and very clean. The bed very comfortable, sheets clean and soft. Around 8-9pm they have live music in the lobby so my suggestion is to get a higher floor to avoid any loud music filtering into your room. It's in Cascade Station which is an open air mall with some big box stores (Target, Best Buy etc) includes a few restaurants including Red Robin which is super popular. The hotel provides shuttles to and from the airport. Like any airport hotel, some airplane noise will get into the room but hotel has good insulation so it's minimal. Their open air snack bar is really an open air expensive mini-bar - no complimentary snacks to guests if only just one time.
Loved the modern vibe....very cool decor and feel to Aloft! Loved everything about it...the room felt like a studio apartment one might live in in Japan. Clean lines, color and lighting. There was a pool and fitness center. Nothing! This was my favorite place of all the places we stayed on our 10 day trip!
Walking distance to several restraints and stores
The music in the pool area made me forget everything else exists
Loved the large rooms and views. Also loved the green options for shampoo and body wash and am a big fan of Bliss products Beds could have been more comfortable
convenience to PDX and local shops/restaurants. The room was lovely and very different from a traditional (old fashioned hotel). Good that fridge was provided.
Rooms are wonderful, staff was great. Having to check out
The place was clean, beds were comfy, the staff was nice and the location was good - stayed for Kumoricon, was about a five minute walk from the convention center, and the sauna was nice~ Free breakfast was scarce, poor water pressure for the shower, old building - no elevator (friends and I had lots of luggage), the key cards don't work at times - sometimes it took one try to get into the room other times it took up to 10 tries.
-Location -Price is cheaper than surrounding hotels -Convenient access to I-5 -Very dated -Good price for the location, but this is not a $200/night hotel -TV, iron, furniture, etc should all be replaced and updated -Not the cleanest place I've stayed at
Location Paying for parking is a rip off. This is just a motel far from downtown.
Two Bedroom suite was excellent for 3 adults and 2 children (5 and 8). Breakfast facilities for a busy Saturday morning were cramped. Breakfast was good but crowed and not easy to manage with small children. This was a busy Saturday with a boys baseball team staying there -- but more space for breakfast would have made this a much better experience.
In room fireplace was great, close to everything, free parking
Staff was excellent. We got out of the ordinary services and I have already complimented the staff member who was especially helpful. Breakfast was great and the location near the airport really makes it convenient. No complaints.
Very nice, clean nicely furnished room. Better route to Cascade station shops. Daily charge for internet access.
Well appointed hotel with very nice lobby/bar/dining area in a large atrium with rooms surrounding it. Very comfortable suite. Telephone and alarm clock were not working, which was inconvenient, but they responded quickly to fix them.
Comfortable. Good breakfast. Clean.
valuable price.good bed. air noise from the main door.
free breakfast bed uncomfortable didn't have black out curtains noise in parking lot uncomfortable toilet seat
Clean and comfortable place to stay. Staff is very friendly. Reasonably good buffet.
The Staff very friendly and inviting. They were able to meet all of our needs. The building could use some updating.
Cheap Kayak listed this as America's Best Value Inn, but the name has changed to Studio 6 Extended Stay...this was a bit confusing. Then, as we were checking in, my husband wanted to double check that there was an airport shuttle for our early flight the next morning, which Kayak had listed as an amenity, and the front desk reported that they no longer offer this service...their shuttle was broken...permanently broken. We asked to stop the check-in process while we looked elsewhere to stay. Unfortunately we couldn't find anywhere last minute, so we had to stay at this hotel. We then had to book a taxi to the airport...which was only about $10, but still an unexpected expense to pay at 4:30am for our early flight. Also, the room was FILTHY. Marker marks on the bedspread, dirty floors and carpet, etc. The room smelled and made you feel gross just standing in there. We are not panicked people by this stuff either...it just was truly a gross, cheap place to stay. We slept in full clothes and put shirts on the pillows just in case...again, we are not normally this worried, but this place was pretty sketchy and icky. Fair warning.
Large rooms I can't even begin.. Awful service , foul and dingy looking dump. Tried to be remodeled but so cheaply done.. Bashed up doors and stairs . Funky smells throughout . Just totally gross..
The room was renovated recently, but the rest of the building is in the middle of renovation - loose wires, drywall everywhere, disgusting old carpet in the hallways. The picture of the front of the building is not the actual building itself. This hotel is in a BAD area. It seems Pimps and prostitutes actually live in the building and conduct business there (they are kept on the first floor). I heard a woman having raucous sex while we were checking in, the place smelled of cigarettes. The list goes on and on. I only stayed there because we got in very late and had nowhere else to stay before our flight out of Portland.
The room had a color theme and was pretty clean. There was a stove top and full fridge. And microwave. There was a table and the entire room was quite spacious. There was a nice new tv. You could tell it was new bc it still had the energy saver tag from the store on the screen. There was no turn table in the microwave there were bowls in the cabinet and some cooking utensils in a drawer like someone lived there. The light and fan above the stove top didn't work. There were no chairs for the table. The hallways looked like it was under construction because the carpets were dirty and the it looked like someone had recently removed the floor molding on the entire first floor.
Sheets and towels were outright gross, multiple visible stains. This is pretty basic stuff for a motel. Despite the cheap price, you don't get what you pay for.
It was convenient to the airport. We didn't actually sleep. The Exit door was propped open, people were coming in and out all night. When we left at 3:30 am there were sleepy prostitutes walking through the lobby, and there was a drug deal happening outside on the sidewalk.
It was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was the same every day, but was good. The exercise room was not as nice as a real gym and was like being in a fishbowl, with people watching you. The spa was ok, but our room and the location were excellent. Do not expect to find good restaurants close by. I would say by far the room/suite and breakfast were both tops, with location a close second! Close to many main freeways! They only had one computer to use in the Business Center, but at least the staff tried to be helpful and were very nice.
THIS HOTEL WAS GREAT FOR A WEEK LONG TRIP. I WOULD TRY TO BOOK THIS SAME HOTEL FOR TRIPS TO COME. GOOD BREAKFAST FOOD AND AWESOME COOKIES AT THE FRONT COUNTER. ALSO THEY HAD A HOSPITALITY EVENING ON THURSDAYS. GOT TO TRY SOME LOCAL BREWS AND GOOD FOOD. A++++++++++
This hotel went beyond my expectations. The rooms were spacious, clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable, and quiet! No weird smells and the staff was very friendly and efficient-it didn't take us all day or night to get checked in or checked out. It was close to the airport but not so close you could hear planes and it was really close to Budget where we had to drop off our rental car. They also had a great complimentary breakfast. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and when I need to stay in Portland, I'll be staying there!
The decor was very nice. The staff was helpful. I thought it was a good deal for the price. Easy to locate off the freeway as well. Very clean rooms. The bed was a bit firm for me, but still not too uncomfortable. Hot breakfast as well. Will definately stay here again!
