"NASTY"
Where to begin? First of all, this place looks NOTHING like the photos for the hotel. Don't be fooled. Noticed Beds on the balconies, Flower gardens that no longer exist, the breakfast bar looks as if they don't serve anything. I proceed to check in and they somehow cancelled my reservation.??? I didn't say a word and walked out the door and ran to my car to get out of there fast. Dilapidated property, dilapidated Hotel. THIS PLACE SHOULDN'T EVEN BE ON THIS SITE. NO RATINGS should be allowed.

"well..."
I flew into town at the last minute for a funeral and just needed a place to get some shuteye for a few hours. This is an old, battered hotel, though it appears some effort has been made to upgrade. The mattress was actually quite comfortable, though the pillows were not. The comforter looked new(ish) but the brown blanket underneath appeared as if it would turn to dust if I touched it. The carpet appeared to have been recently replaced yet the furniture would not have sold at a garage sale - even in this neighborhood. And speaking of the neighborhood, when I noticed our room overlooked a back yard that contained a (presumably) non-working washer & dryer set. The lone saving grace was the hotel is located across the street from one of Portland's true treasures for breakfast, which is good because the burnt coffee and stale bread offered at the hotel were less-than-appealing.

Response by Howard Johnson Portland Airport
Thank you for taking the time to rate us. We love to hear that our staff is doing a good job and that you were pleased. We are seeking to expand our breakfast options in the future. The Belgian Waffle makers we added were actually the result of several guests suggestions, so we truly do value input such as yours. We hope you will stay with us again.

Rendezvous with family members to travel to Hawai'i. We has stayed at PDX HoJo about 20 years ago. This was not the same hotel. It was some distace from PDX and was old and run down. Transitional neighborhood. Would not stay again.

Response by Howard Johnson Portland Airport
Thank you for your feedback. Indeed we are located approximately 3 miles from the actual airport itself and provide a courtesy shuttle for all our guests. We hope you were able to enjoy the quiet benefit from being a distance from PDX and not hearing airplane traffic overhead. Keeping an updated appearance is important to us, which is why we are currently renovating our rooms and property. We hope you would stay with us again when all renovations are complete.

"Choose a different hotel"
Read previous reviews, decided this was a good motel for the price, boy was I wrong, took 2 rooms for 3 nights, arrived and had 1 room for 2 nights. Don't believe the verification advance email, call in advance. This is the third time I have been left having to pay for rooms. The heaters in both rooms never worked, and there were lots of excuses, but never an offer to change us to another room. Pass this hotel, you won't be satisfied.

Overall the stay was nice. The buildind was older. However, I saw old mattresses down in the hallway and also noticed some fresh stain on the doors and trim. The bed was fantastic! It was nice to know things were being kept up. Will return for sure.

Because waiting on house...so you would think that with the $$$ I've Been spending over a month that I would get some type of customer appreciation like a free night or two...Also I'm Not A Complainer but I Have endured 3days of ants in the bathroom & by the bed when I was I residing in 225 I did unfortunately have to report it 3 days in a row...Unfortunately I Have had to ask for service in my ROOM a couple times because after leaving & coming back around 2p in the afternoon my ROOM wasn't done...Also Unfortunately I Have had to ask a few times for towels...however I Do love the staff Vance...Rachel...& Clarissa...Always welcome me with open arms...

The stay was great, the rooms were nice. Me and my children loved the beds, very comfortable. We were in a none smoking room and I am a smoker. So when I went out on the balcony to have a smoke, I had to use a plastic cup with water in it to put out my cigarette. I suggest you give an option to have an ash tray for the balcony. The breakfast buffet was not at all what we expected, I was hoping there were more choices.

"Pretty gross"
The hotel is pretty gross. The room itself was not too bad... Outdated but clean. But the neighborhood was sketchy, and our whole floor was smoking weed. Not a place for my 8 year old to be!! And the 'hot breakfast' was a waffle maker and cold cereal. Not fruit, no protein. We left and ate elsewhere (Elmers). Would not go back.

"Nightmare"
I will NEVER stay there ever again, first day we got there they wouldn't let us check in a little early so we had to sleep in our car after driving over 14hrs. They said if they had a room available for early checkin they would call but never did. They had to switch us rooms three times. First room smelled soooooo bad like animal,the room did not seem very clean, there where stains and holes on the blanket, the base boards where damaged around the door, underneath the air conditioner was really gross. They said they would switch us rooms and give us a call when the second room was ready but NEVER DID, it took for my husband to say something to get told they had switched the wrong people into a room,took a few hours for them to finally switch us to second room.Room#2 the moved us into a smoking room which smelled, seemed a little cleaner then the first one.Had issues with the door it wouldn't let us in the room, had to run to the lobby four times to let them know the door was not working, final time the shuttle driver had to break into the room, I got locked out of my room due to the door mechanism failing. The shuttle driver said our options at that point was for one of us to stay in the room at all times & maintenance was supposed to fix it and never did. After staying in the room all day they finally switched us room #3 @7:30 pm it took my husband to say something. Not Acceptable, NEVER AGAIN!! DO NOT RECOMMENDED, VERY DISSATISFIED,DO NOT RECOMMEND

"Pathetic in Portland"
There was NO HEAT, and there was no way to remedy it. The TV remote did not work until the management spent about an hour that night figuring it out. There were no clothes hangers nor even rods for the (nonexistent) hangers. The mini refrigerator froze the foods we put in it. The "deluxe continental breakfast" was cereal but no milk, juice, some heels of some loaves of bread, and a waffle maker. No butter for the bread or waffles, and no napkins. We have been at this motel before, with few problems save an eternally unavailable/being-remodeled exercise room, but this visit was an extreme disappointment.

"Pleasant Experience"
My daughter and I only stayed for one night on a flight layover. I'm not too familiar with the area, but this place seemed pretty nice and well maintained for the great low price. We did walk over to the 7-11 but that's about it. We had a pleasant experience with the shuttle to and from the airport. An extra little thing that I thought was nice was that they gave us a little "to-go" bag full of breakfast snacks.

"inconsiderate to paying guests"
Underconstruction with no consideration to guests. Room was unfinished, no closet rod or anywhere to hang anything. No bed spreads, hook on bathroom door was upside down so everything fell off. Remote for TV disappeared on second day and it took 2 days to be replaced. Piles of old carpet and padding were on out patio and all over the place. Very cappy 4 day stay!!

"Skip this one until the remodel is finished"
They are in the process of remodeling, which it badly needs; it was old and in poor repair. But they were not finished, and they have no business renting out the rooms that are partially remodeled, which is what I had. Loved the brand new mattress, but didn't have enough bedding (one thin blanket and no bedspread or other cover). No hooks or towel bars in the bathroom. Construction still going on in the same wing I was in. Old mattresses piled up under stairways, old carpets and other rubbish in the parking lots. They also double booked my room, so the desk clerk came bursting into my room not ten minutes after he checked me in, forgetting he'd booked me into that room. He was very apologetic, and all the staff was quite nice, but they just didn't have their act together logistically, and as I said before, the remodeling really wasn't finished.

"HOJO near the Airport = HO-HUM"
I was there for the Portland Dog Show. I needed a relatively inexpensive room within a short driving distance of the Portland Expo Center. On those two points it delivered. But...this is a VERY old Howard Johnson's, probably very nice "back in the day", but had obviously been allowed to go WAY downhill. On the bright side, it was evident that the new owner/management is undertaking a very large remodel...but they have a LONG ways to go. The area around the hotel isn't "terrible", but a bit "sketchy" at best, about what you'd expect for being that close to the airport. The few employees I dealt with were courteous and friendly. Despite the remodel, someone needs to tell management to CLEAN UP THE GROUNDS and PARKING LOTS around their hotel...most of which were FILTHY!

"I had my little boy with me and the room was cold"
The hotel is in a remodel process, so my room had a old heater that work sometime. I had my son with me and I was told I could move to a new room for the heat problem, but that did not happen. Also the parking is bad for all the contractor supplies and vehicle on the site.

"Cost us more than we planned."
We had the hotel for 5 nights, we wanted a pet friendly hotel, and we looked it up online. When we got to hotel we were told not to bring a pet in the room we said we needed a pet friendly room, the attendant switched us ( he never mentioned any cost at all.) Then 2 hours later he called our room saying he needed another credit card, we gave it to him and paid the $84 dollars but did not like that. The room was clean but the heater made God awful noises and blew cold air for while. Thebpet area was very soggy and a cut down tree was everywhere. It was too much money for what we got, unexpected charges are a no go.

"Decent - Balcony - Free Parking"
The staff was friendly and polite. Our room was nice - clean with a little patio balcony upstairs. we stayed during a remodel of the pool area- so there was noise and clutter of supplies but understandable and not a nuisance. The bathroom was standard- no frills. The sink was outside of the shower/toilet are and in the room. Never thought it mattered to me until I was in a room like this. It was just a little different - not bad/good- just different. The location looks a little sketchy but I felt safe enough to walk to the 7-11 within feet right next to a pizza hut -if that's your thing. I only recommend if you have a car - as it's not walking distance to the rails but there is a bus stop right around the corner. I'd recommend and would probably stay again - if i was driving and had a car.

"Older hotel being renovated"
We chose this hotel for its proximity and ease of access to the Portland Zoo. It is an older hotel in the process of being renovated. There were some cleanliness issues but it wasn't horrible. We didn't make it down to the breakfast so I don't have anything to say about that. There was a severe lack of outlets to plug computers and phone chargers into. The TV, microwave, internet router and a few other things were all plugged in to a surge protector behind the desk/dresser. We had to unplug a few things to plug in our computers and phones. I realize it's an older hotel built before the need for outlets, but it was kind of wonky. Overall, it was warm and dry and gave us a bed for the night so we could wake up and get right to the zoo.
