"Unexpectedly Terrific Hotel!"
This hotel was perfect for us. The room was clean, the beds very comfortable and the pillows fluffy. While the exterior isn't much, the interior of the hotel deserves more than a 2 star rating. The location was excellent. Just about everything on our to-do list ended up being within a 15 minute walk of the hotel; voodoo donuts, Saturday Mkt, Pearl District […] (Powell's Bookstore), Riverfront walk, etc. While the building across the street looks like the upper floors are condemned the rest of the neighborhood felt safe. We are two women and we felt comfortable walking everywhere, even late at night. There is a unique bar/restaurant (The Douglas FIr) almost across the street and a good coffee shop down the block. The front desk staff was friendly and knowledgable. They went above & beyond with helpful information about touring the area. This will be my hotel on all my trips to Portland from here on out!

"Could have had a cheaper price..."
Honestly I don't think I am very hard to please, however there were some things that people need to know if they are considering staying at this hotel: 1. Location: not bad, Burnside is the main avenue that separates North Portland from South Portland and it's very close to public transportation and other attractions BUT, right now (9/11-13/2012) they […] have construction going on next to the parking lot, which starts making lots of noise from ~7:30AM to ~5PM , it also thickens the air in the room with dust.. Not good :/ 2. Room itself: the bed is decent, couldn't figure out the AC/Heater but there was no need since it had plenty of blankets. Had a very convenient small fridge. Microwave if you need it. Disappointment - The smell of the room (weird Ethanol like smell), & the shower door had some mildew on the bottom border .. Esthetics: the color or the building and the whole look is bland grayish dark .. Made me think of a jail.. Staff: hit & miss, the check-in guy was friendly, the check-out guy was grumpy (may be because it was 6:45AM) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My wife and I enjoyed this hotel. Its location is very good, close to restaurants and bars and easy access to public transportation. It's a good value for the price..Genuine Expedia guest review
Graffiti everywhere on building and in elevator. Bad part of town. Room very cramped and smelled like mold. Didn't stay the three days I paid for!!! Don't stay!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worth the price"
For the lower price it was cost-effective. The rooms were kept clean and the wireless worked very well. It is a 15 minute walk to the Convention Center and from there Portland's fabulous public transportation system lets you travel anywhere. I took the mass transit from the airpot to the Convention Center, walked 15 minutes with my suitcase trailing […] me, and that was it! For $2.40 that's a steal.

Nothing too extraordinary. I came here for the price and I got what I paid for.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our room, 214, had a not so pleasant smell and the bed top blanket had a few stains. Free internet was nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A terrific find!"
I was meeting up with a woman friend of mine and we were just hanging out for a few days and wanted to do it on the cheap. I'd stayed on the other end of Burnside last trip and wanted to see another angle. I thought the property was great, vintage early 60's No Tell Motel kind of feel but the owners had clearly given the exterior a good paint job. I'm […] not going to blather on about the decor because I could care less about that, although the bathroom could've really benefited from some new fixtures and a fresh coat of paint. For my needs it was perfect and East Burnside is definitely happenin' with some fantastic restaurants and cute shops! A little noisy from the late night party people but not awful (ear plugs a worthwhile thing to pack). And it felt very safe. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Reasonably priced, great location, great service"
What can I say, it is on several bus lines or a short walk from downtown. It's in a great neighborhood and near Le Pigeon. The desk help was extremely courteous and helpful and the room was clean and simple, just what I wanted.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"no parking space"
There are more rooms than parking spaces as I learned when I returned at 9 PM and all spaces were full. The staff explained that yes parking is free but no a space is not guaranteed, which means you have to find a space somewhere in the street in this somewhat seedy neighborhood.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for travelers"
This is a good place to crash if you're in Portland for a conference. It is a short walk to to the convention center. Highly recommended for people in their 20s and 30s who are into traveling and don't need a posh experience. Not recommended if you're in need of a romantic getaway, in the classical sense. It shares a parking lot with a dive that has […] karaoke until 2:30 a.m. every night. Free wifi. It's slow, but good enough for email and social networking. Free parking, too.

"You get what you pay for"
We booked this hotel due to a last minute vacation decision. Everything else was either booked or too expensive for our budget. The hotel has a good location, literally 5 minutes from downtown and 5 minutes to a lot of good eateries on the East side. Though the condition of the overall facility is not good, bathrooms, elevators and pretty much everything […] would love to get a facelift. Additionally, I think due to the lower price, the type of guests staying are younger and noisier (especially after midnight). Not good when you have atrip with your kid and parents, like we did.

"Hotel for downtown on a budget."
The location is excellent, you can easily walk to downtown or catch a bus if you want. The room was very clean. It came with A/C, TV, fridge, microwave, and ironing board. I wished there were complimentary lotion and conditioner, and the towels were kind of stiff. The staff was friendly, though somewhat hard to understand (quick, accented speech). We […] didn't hear the neighbors either :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for"
Excellent location in a funky, up-and-coming portion of town. The hotel does not have updated amenities, but everything was clean, in good condition and surprisingly very quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value on a budget, friendly staff"
I give this hotel a 4 only because I reviewing it as a budget motel. This hotel cannot be compared to standard hotels such as a Hampton. It is a gently renovated Travelodge, and although clean enough, the furnishings and bathroom are quite outdated. The location is pretty good depending on what you want to do. It is a 10 minute walk from a light rail […] stop, or a 15-20 walk across the bridge to get to downtown. I had only 24 hours in Portland, and I wish I'd stayed a bit closer to the downtown area, since I didn't have a car. The best thing about this motel was the friendliness of the lady at the front counter. We had a great conversation. Moments like that make me happy to stay in places that some may consider "off-beat". All in all, a great value for the price as well as clean and safe. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good for money"
A bit shady area with weird ppl but safe and nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"In desparate need of remodel or deep cleaning"
The location of the hotel was great it was close to several hip bars, restaurants, and quaint shops. The outside looks fine and the check in and out was convenient. However, the rooms were terrible! There were weird stains everywhere on the carpet, upholstered chairs, and all over the bedding! Of course all of this was accompanined by a foul smell. […] For the first time in a hotel, I had to wear flip-flops in the shower. Ick! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"good for location"
Stand up shower is good, but bathroom is a bit small. Tight Squeeze getting to bathroom in a queen double room. If you're not too demanding about accommodations, it does offer great location. Great proximity to downtown, very walkable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"4 blocks away from OCC, walking distance to food"
It was OK. We picked this hotel/motel for its proximity to the convention center. It's walkable, but with the weather and the number of us (4-5) we drove anyway (we were on our feet all day). The bar (Doug Fir Lounge) across the street is killer. The numbers don't reflect dissatisfaction--the hotel was what it was and we picked it for that. The biggest […] plus was that the hotel honored our "Do No Disturb" sign all week. I'm not a fan of any one poking through my room when I'm not there, so thanks to the Eastside lodge for that.

The motel is very clean and comfortable. Good for a short stay or a longer vacation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good and Cheap"
Across the street from the hipster-hangout Jupiter hotel, this is a great option if you want to visit the party, and have a quite place to sleep. Accommodations aren't lavish, but they're clean and comfortable. Price can't be beat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"East Side lodge"
This place was clean and very convenient to town but the environment is extremely loud. If you don't mind the noise of a busy street right by your window, trains honking their horns all night long or drunken guests running around at 3am then this place is for you. I asked the reception for a room away from the street but none was available, he said […] the area is "lively". However, the room was clean, the shower was clean with decent pressure and the rate was very good for the location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Eastside Lounge + Doug Fir + Jacks = Woohoo!"
If you're just looking for a simple comfy room to stay in while you mill about the neighborhood on a short stay, there's more than enough to entertain you within mere blocks. I stay here every time I go to Portland, and can't say enough about the Doug Fir Lounge or Union Jacks for that matter... Stumbling distance from both.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Purely Utilitarian Motel"
There is nothing fancy about this motel but it is clean and my interactions with the front desk employees were great. It's a fantastic location for visiting Portland if you'll be in the downtown or NW/NE/SE areas. The room (308) was clean but several elements were super outdated (bathroom especially). The heat and A/C worked, the windows opened for […] fresh air, there was hot water. Bed was comfortable enough. Outside noise was only a problem when people were walking and talking along the sidewalk outside window - not often. The elevator made a HORRIFYING sound both times I took it up ... I didn't fear for my life, but it was still disconcerting. Hotel overall: not great but not bad either. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent bargain hotel"
It is what it is, a bargain hotel, but it's a perfectly good one, no complaints. I would stay there again. That part of Burnside is nicer than I remembered.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our fist trip to Portland"
I was originally to give it a 2 points until i saw my friend's room in Double tree hilton rented for 3 times as much. Our room was better in couple ways....it had a mini fridge, micorwave. Room is very clean, clean linens, towels. My super sensitive wife did smell something mild from toilet. But, keeping the fan on was good enough. Lots of parking […] in the lot and in the street. There was some noice coming from neighboring bar, but, I dont loose sleep over someone else's joy. My 3 year old had lot of fun too. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just too noisy"
Close to the street, low sound-proof, shaking sound of the bed upstairs, and sound of steps......Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not the Jupiter, But It's Close (Distance-wise)"
I was attending a concert at the Doug Fir Lounge and was on a pretty tight budget. The Eastside Lodge is literally kitty-corner across the street from the Doug Fir and is priced about 40% less than the on-site Jupiter Hotel. While I love the Jupiter's Ikea-Modern decor, it just wasn't in the budget this time around. What I saved in room rates, I was […] able to spend in the Jupiter's lounge! Of course don't expect anything resembling the Jupiter's ammenities...but if all you need a cheap place to stumble back to after a night of partying at the Doug Fir, the Eastside Lodge is your place.

"The Eastside Hotel in Portland Oregon."
The hotel was in a close to where we needed to be. Walking distance to all the place we wanted to go. It's an older hotel but clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would recommend this place to stay if not planning to spend a lot of time in your room. Great price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

I got a good price and the place was simple and clean. The hotel staff let me stay an hour longer after checkout, which was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was nice"
For and older place, it was nice. A little noisey due to location to the main road, but only because of traffic. The owner was very cordial and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location for access to downtown & convention center. Public transit close, and good parking."
This is a refurbished motel that has been very well done. Rooms are very clean, beds are comfortable, amenities are exactly as stated. The staff is delightful, and most helpful. We were able to get all the transit directions, as well as information on the sights we were interested in quickly and in detail. The only "issue" we faced was a party in the […] room directly above us--we think it was perhaps a wedding event, but it lasted until the wee hours until we banged on the ceiling and then it was much quieter. It's not in the best part of town, but we had no issues with anything in that regard at all. We couldn't have been treated better, and the price was definitely right!!

I was very impressed with the comfort and clenliness of the room for the price. I will recommend this hotel for anyone on a budget. The water pressure in the shower is amazing too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel's location allows easy exploration of several neighboorhoods in Portland. The one-way streets take awhile to get used to, but traffic flowed well. The cleanliness of the room was great! Iron and board provided but not hairdryer. Day office staff offered helpful assistance in planning activities as well as coordinating taxi service. Taxi arrived […] right on time as promised.

"Super value friendly motel"
We have tried lots of hotels in the Portland area to try to get close to the action without spending a fortune. For the money this is a great motel. We had a double double. The room was clean, the bed was firm. It was much quieter than the Jupiter next door which has paper thin walls. You can explore the eastside or walk or bike over the Burnside bridge […] to downtown. Great coffee just down the block, lots of food and drink options within walking distance. The front desk was welcoming and helpful. I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"good hotel and location, internet connection bad"
is located close to downtown and has some cool bars in the neighbourhood. rooms are clean, but the internet signal didnt reach our room. we told the receptionist the first day, but until our last day of our stay the connection didnt work properly. However in the lobby we had internet access. Overall, its a good hotel and its worth the money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Everything great except for the bed."
The location of the place is great and the rooms were in much better condition than I expected for a motel. Also, it was nice to have such a vibrant nightlife so close to the place. The only reason I gave it a low review is that the beds were horrible. I woke up and felt like I went 2 rounds with Mike Tyson. My lower back muscles were killing me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was able to reach it from where I got off the bus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had an incredibly loud, drunk group that was split between two rooms on either side of our room who were simply obnoxiously loud. Staff did nothing about them, I had to go over and deal with them myself to make them shut up. The pool was closed, the building itself is old and while fairly clean, it's on it's last legs. When I asked for a room change […] to get away from the loud neighbors on both sides I was told there were no other rooms available and then saw two "ladies of the night" walk over and get rooms with no reservations at all. I would never go back to this hotel even if it only cost what it was worth (maybe $25 a night?) due to how rude the night and "next day" staff were about everything. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was pretty good for the price. The only thing I'd complain about is there is a little smoking area that happened to be right outside out room, and drunk people sat out there all night being extremely loud and obnoxious. It would've been nice for hotel staff to come out and tell them to shush.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
