"Clean and basic"
Stay was great, hotel room was spotless and management was friendly and responsive, answering our questions re how to get to MAX stops, location of sights, etc. To get to things other than the Convention Center (it's right across the street) - such as restaurants or coffee shops - you have to walk 15-20 mins, drive, or take the MAX. That was fine w/ […] my wife and I since we like to walk. The hotel is right on Broadway so there was a bit of road noise - not enough to keep me awake, however. I would defitintely stay here again.

The location was very convenient; the morning coffee was great and the room was very clean and odor free. I will return for all the reasons noted especially the price comfort ratio which was high.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pluses: Cheap. And that's it."
One of the worst mattresses I've ever slept on. The fan in the bathroom was extremely noisy. The "continental breakfast" wasn't even day old pastry standard, it was "wrapped in cellophane on the counter of a gas station for 5 years" standard, with orange "drink" of some sort, and that's it. Oh, and coffee. Don't want to short change them. Portland […] is a lovely town and I really like going there but its popularity has made finding a decent but affordable hotel nearly impossible. Econolodge is affordable, but only stay there if you plan on spending most of your time experiencing Portland and not having to do work or stuff in your hotel room.

"Not the friendliest welcome"
I don't like to write this review is so I'm just going to talk as long as I can and eventually this will take something hopefullyGenuine Expedia guest review
"very close to tram and convention center"
good tasting coffee, clean sheets and towels, lots of hot waterGenuine Expedia guest review
Bed was good. Location not the best - a lot of traffic noise. Squeaky and uneven floors. Continental breakfast left a lot to be desired - only orange juice, coffee and packaged sweet rolls. Coffee maker in room; however, only one packet of coffee; only one towel in bathroom. I would probably not stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

noisy, bad serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great no frills hotel, convenient & reasonable"
No frills but everything you would need for a couple of nights. Very reasonable price, parking, WiFi included and coffee and a muffin for a quick getaway in the morning. Very convenient to everything in Portland, including the transit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap, but old"
The rooms are very old and used. Nothing was really broken but very oldGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't judge book by cover"
When we first arrived we were a bit disappointed from the outside as it looked a bit plain. Inside the room it was very clean and smelt lovely. It was quite spacious and the bus and streetcar stopped outside. It was also just across the bridge from the Amtrak station and across the road from the rose quarter stadium.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Econolodge offers a convenient, clean and inexpensive accommodation close to downtown. Not appropriate for luxury lovers but ideal if you don't care about amenities and spend most time outside.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok, but Hungry."
We approached the hotel from the south and saw a deserted lot and a dirty exterior wall. The signage was small. It had us worried that it was a dive. Around the corner it looked fine. Very dated but reasonably comfortable. Not a place you would head for in the evening to relax, just sleep. We found the beds comfortable and there was some exterior traffic […] noise. There was a promise of a continental breakfast but that was going to happen in the lobby at 7:00 a.m. The lobby was a room about eight fet be eight feet. We left a little after 7 each morning and nothing materialized. That factored into added cost for us as we had to eat out each morning. Not expecting that. No extras, just a basic "hit the hay hotel". Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very happy with accomodation, very close to shops etc. New light rail just started out front fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap lodging in a not-too-lively neighbourhood"
I was late to book my hotel for a conference in Portland, and chose to stay at this place because of its low price and proximity to public transportation as reasonable downtown accommodation options had sold out. I was satisfied with my choice, but I believe the place might be a better fit for someone getting around by car. During my stay, I really […] appreciated the excellently friendly and helpful staff, and the fact that quick breakfast snacks to-go were provided for free in the tiny lobby in the mornings. The room I stayed in was well kept and not too small. The free WiFi Internet in the room worked great, though certain ports were blocked (meaning no remote file system access through AFS for me). Rose Garden TC, a major public transportation hub, is five minutes' walk away, or you can park your car at the hotel. Downsides include that my room lacked a hair dryer, and the eerily deserted surroundings of the hotel. (It is located next to the Rose Garden stadium, so there's nobody around except through traffic when there are no stadium events.) Light sleepers might be affected by the traffic noise from the major road outside the hotel, but I had no problem with it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Süsses Motel am Rande der Stadt"
Dieses war bis jetzt das einzige Motel, wo wir unseren Pass vorweisen mussten, damit sie die Buchung finden (ID oder Führerausweis reichten nicht). Unser Zimmer war sauber und gut (Motelvergleich). Das inbegriffene "Continental Breakfast" war nur Kaffee, O-saft & süsse Brötchen. Direkt neben dem Motel befindet sich eine Brücke mit der man direkt in […] der Stadt ist - am der Union Train Station - sind zu Fuss in die Stadt & war nicht so weitläufig wie man es sich von anderen Grossstädten aus den USA kennt.

"not bad.. reasonable price."
not bad.. but i think a bedcover is not clean.. It smelt damp. Also, they didn't have a hairdryer. And the heater is very noisy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Trivsamt, rent och med bra läge nära downtown. Kollektivtrafik precis utanför dörren. Sämsta var "frukosten" - några märkliga plastförpackade kakor och väldigt äckligt kaffe. I övrigt väldigt prisvärt!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sijainti hyvä mutta hotelli on aika vanha"
Ihan jees, ottaen huomioon hintatason. Huoneet on vanhoja ja yöllä kuuluu meteliä ikkunan läpi. Kahvinkeitin ja kahvia oli, mutta ei esimerkiksi vaatenaulakkoa johon ripustaa takkinsa. Aamiaisella en käynyt, se oli ilmeisesti vain kahvia ja keksejä - hotellissa ei ole mitään erillistä ravintolaa vaan aamiaista saa hakea respasta.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

I was expecting a better stay. Staff were friendly, the rooms were pretty clean, but the beds were really uncomfortable and the curtains didn't block the light. A few improvements would make this the best place ever to stay. Dang it!
"Rude Owners, Terrible Service, Made Us Stand In The Cold for 30 MIN!"
01/14/15 Lina T Chicago, Illinois
Staying at this hotel was the most terrible experience ever! Our company was paying for the hotel room and they did not have email, only a very archaic fax machine. The owner was very rude and said that everyone had to wait outside until the fax came through and they kept asking for tweaks to be made to the authorization form - they kept saying their property has all these rules (which did not really make sense) it was freezing outside and they were so rude and at that point, we felt we needed to jump through their little hoops because they had our credit card number and it was too late to cancel the room. We were so frustrated and when we told them that the experience was very frustrating, they told us that they could refuse to rent us a room if they wanted to ... if I knew it would have been this way, I would have definitely booked another hotel - it was not worth it at all ... and on top of it, the rooms were not clean and they smelled terrible. Do not stay here - especially if you have children!
"Great price for a decent stay"
12/16/14 Eileen K Tacoma, Washington
My husband and I stayed here for one night in late November. Just a quick trip to see a concert in downtown Portland. We didn't want to spend a fortune on a room we wouldn't spend much time in so chose this place based on decent reviews. We weren't disappointed. Quick check-in, friendly front desk staff, clean and spacious room, comfortable bed, cable, and FREE PARKING. Great access to the street car or bus (stops are right across the street), and just a mile or so from downtown. Good spot for a great value.

This place has not changed since last here. Great fast check in, Very large and well appointed room. The Price is right. Have not changed my mind on this place. Can recommend this place for an overnight stay.
10/13/14 Donna P
We were on a follow-our-nose road trip from Berkeley to Seattle and did not have hotel reservations made ahead. The downtown Portland hotels were either sold out or very expensive. At first, we feared what we had gotten into with the Econo Lodge. However, the room was not shabby. It was clean. All of the fixtures were in good working order. The neighborhood turned out to be quiet and safe. The "continental breakfast" was quite spare but better than nothing. For our purposes of just driving through, the Econo Lodge proved a great place to spend a night.
"Great location, decent rooms, good price"
09/27/14 8ric Tampa, Florida
Look, it's an Econolodge! The rooms were spacious, the bathroom and shower decent size. The king bed was comfortable along with the pillows. The hotel is a bit dated but it's clean with your expected amenities. The carpet in our room definitely is aged but the room was without any offending odors. The plus for this hotel is it's location and price. You are in walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Keep in mind you are on the edge of what starts "downtown" so for the price, excellent location. The lady at the front desk is phenomenal! She is great to ask questions and get recommendations. She was super helpful throughout our stay. I felt safe around the immediate area. The continental breakfast is bare bones, coffee, bread, juice and muffins. I'd stay here again if in town.
"Affordable room within driving/walking distance to great restaurants"
08/16/14 Jonathan A Oreland, Pennsylvania
Pretty much what we expected for the price. Room was fairly clean and big enough for two people. There was definitely a strong and distinct cumin/curry smell in the room that we couldn't seem to shake. But that might have been from another room below us cooking dinner or eating Indian food.
04/17/14 Robert W Portland
Nice room - better than I expected because of the run-down exterior - and it was clean, quiet, and well-supplied. My only complaint is that the TV reception was poor (picture not clear), even though it was from the satellite. The location is a bit inconvenient unless you're going to the Convention Center.
04/03/14 RingsBells Salt Lake City, Utah
Attended a conference in Portland last week and wanted a hotel near the convention center, with breakfast, that fit my budget. I wasn't expecting luxury for my 4 nights at the Econo Lodge, but good grief. The lobby is large enough for one person and their luggage. The "breakfast" is set up in a corner of the lobby--pot of coffee, jug of orange juice and your choice of a frosted packaged pastry or . . . a frosted packaged pastry. No variation, food to be eaten in your room. One coffee pod in your room per day. My roommate and I repeatedly had our keys re-keyed as they did not operate the door when we came home, with never an apology. The proprietor refused to allow my roommate to check out early (since she had a 6am flight the next day) and pay her part of the bill. Since the reservation was made with my credit card, that was all he would accept for payment. On the plus side, the room was clean and the streetcar (only stops every half hour) picks up directly across the street. Wish I had a better report for $110 a night.

We had stopped at this motel due to horrible weather conditions and we could no longer drive in the snow. When we arrived, the receptionist provided horrible service. We entered the room and the heater did not work and the bed was very hard, which left us tossing and turning the entire night. Their continental breakfast consisted of orange juice and a couple of stale danishes. Would not recommend this place at all!
