"Great hotel for price, location, staff"
If you need to stay near the airport, this is your best bet: While the rooms might show their age a little bit, the bed and bedding are very comfortable and the hotel is quiet. The staff really goes out of its way to be helpful and make you feel welcome. When I stayed there, there was a Tuesday night happy hour with free drinks and a Frank Sinatra impersonator. […] I've heard that he's stopped that gig but it gives you an example of how the hotel aims to please its guests. Another important feature of staying here is that the restaurant at the Shilo, right next door, has really excellent food. It was a real find - I would go out of my way to eat there (the steamed clams, salad with cranberries and goat cheese, and pork chop are all excellent). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good value, clean and functional"
We needed a simple place to stay in Portland and our favorite was fully booked. This hotel served well. It is clean and functional. Good breakfast offerings for a chain.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place for an overnight stop"
The wallpaper in the bathroom above the shower was peeling but other than that, no complaints. Even with the close proximity to the airport, the planes weren't so loud that it disturbed our sleep. Great hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pricey for what you get"
No parking when we got in. Pricey for what you get. Did not know we had to pay extra to park and fly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice & clean hotel."
Enjoyed our stay-everything was just right. Would stay againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Shuttle Service to PDX"
I've stayed here several times when I have early morning departures out of PDX. The Shuttle Van is very clean and appears to be kept in great shape. The shuttle leaves on time, which is very important when trying to catch a plane.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel close to the airport and restaurants"
Friendly staff, clean rooms, shuttle to the airport was excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Standard hotel airport"
I stayed here one night after getting into Portland on a late flight. It literally took 5 minutes for the shuttle to drive there. The front desk was helpful, but maybe not the most efficient. It took a long time to check in the gentleman before me, but I checked in quickly. When I discovered I had forgotten toothpaste, the front desk attendant happily […] gave me some. In the morning the front desk lady helped arrange for the shuttle to drop me off at the nearest train station instead of the airport so I could get downtown. That was nice of her. The room itself was basic, clean, and had some nice fixtures in the bathroom. I heard maybe four planes the entire time I was there and they sounded distant. The room had a good selection of TV and movies for free. The TV wasn't in front of the bed, which was little awkward because I wanted to lay down and not sit on the couch, bit that's my preference.Hairdryer and magnifying mirror in the bathroom. Sink, fridge, and microwave, and coffee maker in the corner of the bedroom. The window even had a view of a river, which was pleasant. Decent buffet breakfast- I've had better and worse. It included cereal, fruit, pastries, and a decent selection of Stash teas. Overall it was not a bad experience, but it didn't wow me. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Melt into the mattress, bedding, and pillows!!"
Professional Five Star service, awesome melt into the mattress, bedding, and pillows that are firm, but super soft and heavenly with their pillow top mattress and down pillows and covers! Great breakfast that was available at 4:30 am to eat or pick up and take with you to the airport. Love this, most hotels breakfast does not start until 6 or 6:30 am […] and if you are leaving early for the airport there is nothing for breakfast or to go, except coffee. I have stayed here twice in the past two months and will return again! Love, Love it!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good stay close to the airport"
We stayed here the night we arrived to visit family in Oregon and the night before we left on an early flight. We got a rental car at the airport so did not use the shuttle either time. Check-in was easy, the room and bed were clean and comfortable, the staff was courteous and helpful, and breakfast was good and easy to get in a hurry before we left […] for the airport. We would do it again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The spa and gym facilities were closed our entire visit. Also the hot tub was not working the entire time. the manager receptions never happened. The previous were all reasons why we booked the hotel so yes it was disappointing. The front desk was excellent and the free breakfast was nice. The room was comfortable but the wifi did not also work all […] the time. We would book a room elsewhere next visit to Portland. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Handy for airport overnite stay"
Location was handy ...close to airport, restaurants. The rooms could be a little more soundproof, as we heard lots of noise from people staying above us. Had a slow running toilet to listen to all nite, it sounded like water running overhead. But was clean & the Bed was very comfy. We would stay again despite the noise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Customer service 100%!!"
I was stranded in Portland and called for a room. I was able to check in early and loved the room. Wonderful breakfast and the most comfortable beds!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good stay for the business traveler"
Not far from restraunts and the freeway. Easy to get in and out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel experienced a water problem that put the pool and jacuzzi area our of commission for several days. My stay was for seven days. I picked Clarion because it had a jacuzzi and indoor pool, and a breakfast for guests. The breakfast was very good. However, I was extremely disappointed when the pool and jacuzzi remained unavailable for guests for […] most of my stay. While there were some workmen at the hotel working on the water problem, there was no evidence that effort was being made on fixing the problem with the pool and jacuzzi. Nothing was done to keep the guests advised on problem progress, and nothing was done to offer guests these services at another sister hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to PDX"
I stayed at this hotel during a quick turnaround visit to PDX. My stay was over a Monday evening and the hotel was very full, with hardly any spaces remaining in the parking lot. The hotel is across the street from a 24 hour restaurant (Shari's) and just down the block from a Home Depot and a new 7-11 convenience store/gas station. The night I stayed […] the fitness room had been flooded by a broken pipe so was unavailable. The wireless WIFI had a weak signal as i was at the end of the hall. The breakfast bar was well stocked and maintained with a full range of hot and cold options, served in a comfortable, attractive dining room adjacent to the lobby.

"A little disappointed"
This might seem trivial, but I specifically picked this hotel because the website said it had tempur pedic beds. I've been thinking about buying one, and looked forward to sleeping on one. The bed we had was comfortable, but it was not a tempur pedic. When I asked the hotel staff about it, he said those were for their upgraded rooms, which are not available […] in third party sites like hotels.com and there was nothing he could do. Again, not huge but disappointing. It was a nice hotel overall. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I really liked this hotel. actually, very easy to access from the airport and a lot of places by car. quiet at night. I would like to book this hotel again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"wish we could have stayed longer"
stayed overnight for an early AM flight, so only had about 8 hours there. Great experience. Décor nice, roomy, CLEAN, outlets everywhere for phone, computer charging, etc. Beds had both feather/down & synthetic fiberfill pillows - nice to have the choice without asking. HVAC was much quieter than other hotels. We were about 15 min early for the included […] breakfast, but it was pretty much ready & the attendant setting it up was very helpful & got us plates (that hadn't been set out yet) Great job Clarion!

"Nice hotel near airport"
It was easy to get into the city or to the airport by hotel shuttle. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Manager's weekly happy hour included appetizers, wine, beer, or other beverages plus live music. Breakfast was complete, and food was good quality.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice traveler's hotel, close to the Portland"
This hotel is typical of a traveler's hotel. It is practical, clean, and seemed to be well maintained. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The obligatory continental breakfast is provided with bagels, pastries, eggs and bacon, cereal, coffee and juice, waffles, etc. their orange juice us diluted to tasting more like water than juice, and the silverware […] they provide is so thin and tinny it has a tough time holding food from plate to mouth. One other item is the ultra-thin mil toilet paper they furnish. When I checked in, the top roll was 3/4 expended. While I understand saving money and smart conservation, that was a first..for god's sake, allow your cleaning staff to install new to rolls for your incoming guests where warranted. While these are trivialities, I would encourage hotel ownership to invest a little in full customer service, rather than cutting pennies and rendering a dollar's worth of negative impressions.in hospitality, it can in fact be "the little things" which leave the biggest impression. A 24 hour pie/coffee shop is located directly across the street, which us convenient. There is a pond directly behind the hotel. All rooms seem to gave a view of the pond, and traffic noise from Airport Way and the nearby freeway is non-existent. It is a 15-20 minute drive to downtown Portland, so if that works for you, the price of this hotel us easily half that of most downtown area lodging. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed two nights at the Clarion. The staff who picked us up from the airport and who greeted us at the counter were friendly and full of information about local restaurants and sights to see. The shuttle driver to and from the MAX transit line was on time, courteous, and again--full of information about how to manage the transit schedules, places […] to see, and tips on returning to the hotel. The room was clean. Stacks of fresh towels and toiletries. The check in and check out was fast. No surprises. The breakfast buffet was hot and plentiful with everything from eggs to bacon to waffles to fresh fruits and juices. They had the local paper as well as the standard USA Today available each morning for guests. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good night's sleep and convenient"
We booked the rooms at the Clarion to be close to the airport for an early departure the next morning and wanted a hot breakfast too. The King size bed room was surprisingly spacious and comfortable. Two sinks, one outside the full bath, allowed for 2 adults to easily share the space and have privacy. The room was very quiet and the bed was super comfortable! […] The "help yourself" breakfast was well-stocked and very satisfying with bacon, eggs, potatoes, and 2 waffle stations, along with fruit, cereal, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, muffins and bakery goods. The free airport shuttle was reserved the night before and is only 5 minutes from the airport. Very impressed!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Was at the end of our week long vacation"

"Nice hotel close to airport."
This was a great hotel. I was expecting a little more updated rooms, but overall the experience was very pleasant and staff and facilities were great. The indoor pool was great entertainment for my little one except that it wasn't heated and was rather cold in September.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Late night traveller"
My Husband and I were returning from Oahu and our flight arrived late so rather than take the three hour drive to our home, we decided at the last minute to book a room at a hotel near the Portland Airport. The Expedia agent gave me several options and when I asked for a room that was perhaps a little less expensive, she mentioned the Clarion option. […] We booked it and upon arrival were greeted by a friendly desk staff, experienced quick check-in and then found our room to not only be nice, but to be great. It was without a doubt one of the largest and nicest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in. It was very well laid out, had not only a bench for the suitcase but rather an entire closet for them that kept them out of the way and out of sight. The ammenities were wonderful, especially the two different pillow options. Additionally the breakfast facility and offerings were broad and very good. I was more than pleased and quite happy. Definitely a recommend on this hotel and the facilities. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel at a reasonable price"
The Clarion is out near Portland's airport, but that is only 20 minutes or less from the city once you become accustomed to the trip. The hotel is clean and comfortable. Every room faces a small lake or pond just in back, which is rather restful. Now and again the airplanes were a little loud, but rather oddly, we couldn't even hear them most of the […] time. (I am a little oversensitive to noise.) All in all--a nice place for a very reasonable price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"This Clarion out did themselves!"
From the moment we were picked up by Clarion' s shuttle our stay at the Clarion was as lovely and well attended as anything I could have asked for. The shuttle driver was gracious, courteous, thoughtful and prompt. The desk staff were all knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms were clean, very comfortable and well laid out. Frankly, I have never stayed […] in rooms where there was more attention paid to details that make a difference to a traveler's needs. Brilliant, really. And the rates were very reasonable. The next time we are in Portland, I certainly know where we will be staying! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel near PDX"
Nice room with very comfortable bed. Though located near the airport there was minimal air traffic noise. The room was pleasantly decorated and had all the normal amenities. The free breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Only a mile or so from a large retail area featuring an IKEA and several unique restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Airport location and quite too!"
We thought the bed and bedding was very comfortable. So comfortable we may have too buy a new bed and pillows at home. The room was larger that expected with a nice view of the river. We expected to hear airport noise but we did want to stay by the airport. We were pleasantly surprised to hear no noise at all, not even from the neighbors.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Solid But Not Spectacular"
I've mostly stayed at the Clarion for 1 night prior to leaving from PDX the next morning. I would describe it as a great place for a short stay. The rooms look great, have plenty of room and are always very clean. In addition, the rooms are very quiet--which is critical since airplanes fly low overhead. As for the amenities, they did not offer much […] in the way of restaurants and shopping within walking distance. However, it is a only a 5-10 minute drive from the Cascades shopping center and I suppose you have the Shilo Inn restaurant next door. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice view, good room, easy location"
Great location to the airport, and with the free shuttle service to and from the airport, very easy in and out. Also easy to get either to Portland (downtown is about a $30 cab ride) or to Vancouver, WA across the river. Most important, however, the bed was VERY comfortable (Temperpedic mattress), and the room large and well-appointed, with a nice view […] of the natural lake right outside. The towels were traditional hotel towels, so if you want soft bring your own, same with other amenities - but overall, it was VERY clean, and very comfortable, and very easy to get to from anywhere. The pool was also a very nice area, where you can sit either inside or out depending on the weather, and again has a view of May's Lake, right next to the hotel. So it was pleasant to swim and relax there for an afternoon. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, even late at night when we had to call to have them give our cab driver directions back to the hotel, and supplied us with whatever we requested easily and with no fuss. We got a special rate through Hotels.com, and then when we got there they automatically upgraded our room at no additional fee since it was available. Thanks Clarion! We'd definitely stay here again.

Room was comfortable and breakfast was a great assortment that included healthy items like fruit and hard boiled eggs as well as hot items.

Everyone was very nice. Room was spacious and clean. Large breakfast selection for a hotel. Only thing of concern was other people staying left the breakfast area trashed, but hotel staff cleaned it up quickly. Overall, I would stay here again without hesitation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. It definitely met our expectations. Our room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. One tip, unless you get a great rate on Expedia, don't bother upgrading to a lake view room. The lake looked like nothing more than a large retention pond.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms were ready when we arrived. Personnel were pleasant and informative. Rooms were clean and large with lake view.Genuine Expedia guest review
