"only hotel available in Portland - definitely 2 st"
Hotel is 2 stars. Looks like the management is really trying to keep it up - new windows and vanity. Price matched the facilities. Excellent staff. Area initially looks like a cheap area but in fact just off the main street is a lovely residential area and walking distance to hip Stark street with great restaurants.

"Cleanliness of room"
Not much. Lots of confusion about our reservation after we had called to make a change. Hotel was blaming Expedia.com and they said they had heard nothing about the change. (Partly our fault - but we had called the hotel and made the reservation change and they said everything was taken care off.) The room we stayed in needs a really good cleaning and needs a lot of repairs.

"Note to self: Do better research on motel before"
Had to go to Portland on short notice to attend a funeral so went to Expedia for lodging close to where I needed to go. Pic's of the place on Expedia website looked adequate to acceptable... visually. But in hind site they were, by my best guess, taken by a pro photographer that can photographically polish a turd with lighting and angles cause they don't show you the neighborhood or the micro thin walls. When I arrived late at 10:30pm after a 4 hour drive from Seattle the neighbors in the next room (two women and one man) were loudly fornicating and arguing about fornicating and or the absence of fornicating. Now, ordinarily this might have provided some strange voyeuristic entertainment that could be fun in the right circumstances for a short period of time. But this continued all freakin night and I needed to sleep. Finally after three calls in two hours to the front desk to sit on the offensive neighbors it appears they brought in the police to sit on them or perhaps evict them in the middle of the night because it finally quieted down about 4am.

"Ask for a non-smoking room, that's what you expect"
We tried to stay at the Briarwood. When we checked in, the room was an obvious smoking room. Of course the hotel was full and no other rooms available. Clerk claimed Hotels dot com only requests certain amenities, not requires, so a non-smoking room was never guaranteed. Either way, this is baloney! Why click the box if you aren't going to get it? The very helpful clerk sent us to another hotel that was owned by the same owner. Unfortunately, that motel was a dump. The Briarwood seemed fine, just be some how sure to specify non-smoking if that's the type or room you want.

"In the ghetto"
Portland was unfortunately booked throughout the city and we were left with this "gem". The hotel is in a scary part of town. There were security cameras in the lobby and all hallways, the staff who checked us in were friendly but frazzled because the room lock system had failed. The gentleman who checked us out was not at all friendly or helpful, he was hesitant to give us 2 towels even after we explained we booked a room for four people and were only given two towels. The rooms appeared old and dirty, blankets had crust on them, the lock on the door appeared pulled off.

"I would not recommend."
Let me just preface this with saying that the staff were very kind and friendly. That being said, this was one of the worst motels I've ever stayed in. There was a coffee maker, but no coffee or filters. The towels had gross looking brown spots on them. There were hairs around the bathroom, including in the bathtub. The wifi was out most of the time we were there. There was something like K-Y or petroleum jelly on the nightstand. They required that any guest you had sign in at the front desk and couldn't stay for more than an hour. The other guests yelled and slammed doors all night long. The walls were paper-thin and you could hear all conversations, etc. The room was also very loud due to the traffic on Powell.

"For The Price - Excellent"
This is a nicely run place. The management and reception are very friendly. I did not have have internet working in my room. The night manager moved me with 5 minutes to a room where the internet worked without fuss. It is a little close to the road so traffic noise was a small issue. I had a gentleman underneath me who gave a great impression of a foghorn till 3 am most nights - but ear plugs sorted him out. Overall, a really good hotel, as per usual other humanoids ruined it slightly to scale my mark to 7 out of ten.

"Terrible"
This hotel was a pretty miserable place to stay. My first review wasn't allowed because I mentioned the specific price of the fee they charge you if anyone is seen visiting your room! It is ridiculous, to say the least. The room was unusually dirty for a hotel in this price range. Stained towels looked as if they were threadbare from the day purchased. Even found a short hair (if you get my drift) in my washcloth after unfolding it. TV was an ancient CRT so no chance of hooking it up for device streaming. Had to dodge a huge vomit (?) stain in the parking lot while I was there as well. Not the greatest neighborhood in Portland but I wish I had read the reviews more thoroughly. For a three star average this place was not what I expected.

"A motel in a questionable neighborhood."
First thing you notice when you check-in to the motel is that there exists several ethnic restaurants across the street. And adjacent to the said ethnic restaurants, there exists a gentlemen's club of questionable quality. The furniture is of decidedly low in quality and the bathroom sink actually is located right outside the bathroom. You truly get what you pay for at Briarwood Suites.

"Abysmal. Not staying again"
This place is not very pleasant. First off you get a lecture from the front desk about how if they even see someone visit your room it's a $50 charge. So they basically let you know they have problems with [hotels.com doesn't allow this word but it's the oldest profession] and they want their cut. It's close to 82nd so I'm not surprised. My parking spot had a giant two foot puke spot by the drivers door I had to step over the entire time I was there. The room felt scummy, pictures had been unscrewed and removed. The TV was an ancient CRT with no HDMI input. I found a very stubborn pube in the middle of the brown stain on my washcloth. All the towels were threadbare. The bed spread and under blanket had seen better days and probably none of them in a washer. I didn't take my socks off until I got into bed. At least the sheets were clean. The other amenities were fine (couch, fridge, desk, Wifi worked OK, etc.) I regularly stay at hotels in this price range and have reasonable expectations. This just fell way below those.

"DO NOT STAY HERE"
This was the worst hotel experience I have ever had. The refrigerator was broken so all the food I bought for my room I had to throw away. The room smelled sour from the refrigerator being broken. There were ants coming out of the heater. The man from the front desk over charged me by $50 and refused to give me a receipt. When it was check out time I was loading my car and the man from the front desk told me I needed to check out immediately. When I went to meet him in the lobby he told me I could go. Horrible experience.

So i booked a room here last wknd for my husband's birthday, we had checked in and got our stuff to rm. Now we did have a few too our rm but that's why we got the 3 beds. Any ways, we have friends that live in Portland that we don't see cuz we don't live there, had them meet us at our rm so that we could go out, after just a cpl hrs at the bar next door, we go back to find that wet have been locked out of our rm and kick out for having guest im our rm. NO WHERE on there site or the lady i booked with let me know that that was the case. Had i known i wouldn't have stayed there been out $100. (Cuz you don't get ur money back) They were rude, would not talk to me when i went to find out what's going, just walked really fast in front of me to unlock my door and tell me i have ten mins to get off the property before he calls the cops. So again, we will NEVER stay there again and i don't recommend it to anyone. EVER!!!!!!!!

"Could be better"
This is our third or fourth time at this place and things have gone downhill. There was no shampoo in the bathroom, the towels were so small and dirty looking. The couch sagged so much that sitting in it could give someone back pain. The bathtub is all stained. But I must say service of the staff was good and they were courteous and helpful to a degree. And what is the point of saying it comes with breakfast when they have nothing but stale doughnuts. Can't they have at least some milk or cereal?

"For the price, it's an excellent facility."
For the price, you get a much better deal than with most motels in the area. It's far cleaner and non-smoking rooms are truly non-smoking. In addition, there's more room and the beds as well as pillows are much more comfortable and of better quality. The mirrors around the room were a really nice addition too. The staff were very friendly as well. Talking to them felt almost like being at home. The only down-side was the breakfast. It was pretty disappointing. I was expecting the typical breakfast of eggs, toast or bagels, spreads, fruits and coffee. However, it was just boxes of store-bought donuts...

"Paper Thin Walls on the Edge of Town"
Expedia said there was only one room left at the price and I did not see that the reservation only allowed 1 guest for the price.We just needed an inexpensive place to sleep for one night. Upon check-in I had to pay an extra $15 for my husband. I would have done better to look for another motel. It would have been nicer too. The motel was not full but the manager put all of the guests in rooms near each other. The walls were so thin you could hear EVERYTHING that other guests were doing.

All in all this is a very decent place. For those of you looking to pay country Motel 6 prices and get Hilton service you are going to complain anyway, but I have to say as a person who travels 3 months out of the year this place is just fine. It is not fancy, there is no valet but it is clean, reasonably priced, the rooms are large (nice during a long stay), it is in a decent neighborhood with bars, restaurants and stores nearby and the owner and staff are friendly. I stayed at Briarwood for over a week while house shopping and it worked perfectly.

"Economical motel with no frills"
I stayed here with my three newphews (10 yrs, 10 yrs old and 15 yr old) We stayed in Room 118. Very economical. I paid $54 for two queen beds. I wasn't expecting anything real great for the price and to be honest it was actually better than what I expected. The rooms are spacious. The beds are clean and comfortable. Low noise level. The decor is outdated but the room was mostly clean. The only negative thing I would have to say is that the room had a hideaway bed sofa and one of the my teenage nephews would rather have preferred sleeping there than with his aunt. When we pulled out the sleeper the mattress was badly stained and soiled. There were no extra sheets for the hideaway and when I went to the front desk to ask if we could have some sheets I was told that the maids have already gone home for the day and no I could not be given any extra sheets. There were also dirty towels under the sofa. The continental breakfast is very skimpy. When I went to check it out it appeared it consisted of coffee and doughnut holes.

As it turn out the room was quite clean and the staff went out of their way to help with my wyfi. And made sure I was in a room away from party animals.

"convenient, clean and economical"
We enjoyed our stay and the hotel staff were all very nice and helpful. The room was very clean and everything worked fine. The free breakfast was really a very simple continental breakfast option of toast, muffin or donuts, The price was one of the cheapest in Portland and it was super convenient to the Mt Tabor neighborhood where we were visiting family, so we were happy with our stay and would return. Plenty of restaurants and stores nearby for anything you might need. There is a Chinese restaurant next door that serves delicious and reasonably priced fresh seafood, When i say fresh, I mean crabs, lobster, prawns and fish in tanks for you to choose from, or do as I did, just order from the menu and not play God with who lives and who doesn't. Our prawns were super fresh and absolutely delicious.

The facility was clean and quiet. I wish, however, that the management took more pride in the details. Our blanket had several cigarette-made burns, the towels were small, thin, and definitely could have benefitted from some bleach (Stains are really a put-off!!) , the shampoo dispenser was empty. There was a heater/air conditioner under the window. The cover was off and tilted up against the curtains. When we asked at the office if there was a problem with it, we were told that it worked just fine (and it did) and not to worry about the cover being off.

I have stayed at briarwood many times when dealing with surgery out west. Staff has always been quite considerate and helpful. Night manager Ray and also Gary both great guys. Little out of the way for my doctor but I have come to feel secure at Briarwood and the local business are all familiar to me. Nice theater close by and lots of food places, Library with internet a short walk, number 9 Powel buss gets me right into downtown.

I really enjoyed staying at Briarwood. I had coffee directly across the street, great food next door to the coffee shop, and then relaxed at the great pub with outside smoking area half a block east in a small shopping center with a beer-wine-exotic smoke shop. The pub had the best BBQ pork ribs I've tased in many years. I only had two minor problems with the hotel - the TV didn't work and the telephones mounted instruction card was completely washed out unreadable. They tried to replace the TV but couldn't remove the security bolts retaining the old bad TV. I eventually got it to work by banging in it. Hey, stuff happens.
