The staff was helpful and friendly and many food choices were offered as part of the complimentary breakfast. The location was convenient as it was close to business training that brought me to town. However, I didn't like that the hotel was so close to the freeway and the heavy curtains didn't shut. The combination of my neighbor's loud television, […] traffic and a bright freeway sign made focusing on getting business and school work completed, as well as sleep, extremely difficult. I was also disappointed in the fitness room, which featured only a few treadmills and one broken weight machine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great place to stay"
Had a great view of the clackamus river from my hotel room. Everything was very clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean, comfortable, river view, easy access. Great beds!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Liked that the hotel was pet friendly. Parks nearby along the Clackamas River made a good place to walk. Quiet room in spite of being close to Interstate 205. Lots of choices at breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Express Portland SE- Clackamas Area Along with each of our rooms having a view of the Clackamas river we do accommodate our guests who travel with pets. Our pet rooms are featured right on the first floor to allow for easy access to the walking path outside the hotel. We are glad that you had a chance to enjoy our breakfast and the variety of items that it offers.

"good hotel in Gladstone OR"
I've stayed at this location many times before when it was an Oxford Suites. That was a great place then, with nice free breakfasts and good snacks with free salad/soup/beer. Those days are now gone, and therefore I rank Holiday Inn Express lower than Oxford Suites. The breakfasts now are the usual carb-loaded fare, served on Styrofoam plates with plastic […] cups. Not very good, in my opinion. The rooms are still clean and nice, however. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Had to stay for 4 nights due to training in the area. Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms. A Safeway next door, and a Subway and Mcdonalds a block up, otherwise not much for restaurants. Lots of road noise from the 205 that runs parallel with the hotel was my biggest issue.Genuine Expedia guest review
The amenities were very nice. We had complimentary wine & beer at night with snacks and salad and soup. Fruits and cookies also complimentary. Location very convenient for trip to airport and around Portland or Salem. Easy place to stay and very exceptional.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel is clean, room is good size"
The hotel is just off the freeway. We can see the freeway and the creek with flowing water which was great. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and pretty good size. The buffet in the morning is ok, pancakes, eggs, sausages, yogurt, bread, bagels, cereal, etc. The coffee was decent. Here are the things I didn't like, the bathroom sink and lights […] was facing the second bed. If you stay up late and decide to wash up after someone had fallen asleep then you will wake them up with the lights shining in their face. The other problem is the thick dark curtains don't close all the way, only the light see through curtain will cover the window completely and it will let light in the room. This didn't bother me because I like to have sun light wake me up in the morning but this might bother others. Finally out of two night, a train came by at 2am in the morning. The hotel was not perfect but I would come back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and comfortable room and friendly staff"
Our king bed room was comfortable enough for the price we paid. And it was nice touch to have welcome snack/drink at happy hour. We love Holiday Inn chain as we get the same amenity that is acceptable for the money. And this hotel did exceed my expectation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient hotel off 205"
Great hotel. Would have been perfect except the pool wax closed the first day we were there. Kids were disappointed, but happy when it opened the next day..Genuine Expedia guest review
"Check in with HOTELS.COM pre-payment NOT GOOD!"
Our stay was fine.. Hotel was great.... However, checking in with Hotels.com prepaid receipt was awkward. The hotel did NOT have my reservation in their system from Hotels.com. The hotel DID honor the price. Hotels.com....this is NOT the first time this has happened... WHY???Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"better than I expected"
I don't generally have high hopes for Holiday Inn anything due to some past sketchy visits. But i was pleasantly surprised by this place. Room overlooking a rushing river. Decent breakfast. Internet was good. Evening staff was awesome. always a bonus. Parking was a bit on the rough side if you come in late. All in all a good place. Will probably come […] back again.

"Great place to stay in Portland"
Though the hotel was conveniently close to hwy 205, surprisingly you could not hear it at all. The indoor pool and spa temps were perfect: pool not too cool and spa not to hot. Their continental breakfast (and supper!) were very nice. Internet service was flawless. We enjoyed a movie on the giant flatscreen TV and DVD player.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was the best hotel weve stayed in in a long time! The staff was great, rooms were clean and spacious! the kids loved the pool! I took all 7 of my grandkids we had 2 rooms and it was perfect. The breakfast was wonderful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable but need to hire night staff"
We were at the pool ~9pm, there were NO pool towels. When we headed back to our room, we stopped at the front desk to get room towels and to let them know about the pool towels. The front desk was deserted, no one around for over 15 minutes. During that time a young lady was also looking for pool towels, and a young man was trying to pay for snacks […] from their convenient little "store". I finally found an employee in the closed breakfast area and asked if there was someone attending the front desk. She said the hotel doesn't think they need a second employee at night, so the single desk clerk is often missing when they are called away to take towels, etc. The desk clerk arrived then and said there are no towels. I didn't accept that for an answer and said I'd wait. the lady from the café got rude and said she would get some from housekeeping downstairs and acted like I was being unreasonable. Another review here said the breakfast lady had trouble keeping up the food supply in the morning, and we found that to be true as well, but she was trying very hard and was super sweet and kind about it.

"Exhausted at the end of the Oregon Trail"
This hotel was the perfect location to stay for a business trip. The advantage was we were close to the freeway, had a nice river view and breakfast. The Oregon City historical places and museums were very close and easy to find after a restful night stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms were clean, the hotel looks pretty new inside, the beds were comfortable, and the breakfast was better than the typical bagels and cereal. The only drawback to the hotel is the proximity to the 205. We left the fan going on our heater and we couldn't hear the freeway at all. But, in the dead of night with the fanand tv off you can faintly […] hear the cars. The room was very well insulated and quiet though and we didnt hear any of our neighbors either. I will definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price, I was expecting an average stay in a small room. I was so wrong. From the service at the desk, to the room size and cleanliness, to the spread at the continental breakfast: everything surpassed my expectations. I would not hesitate to stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would Stay Here Again"
This hotel is in a location that makes it easy to get to the important highways to get around Portland. There's a fantastic walking trail that runs along the river that is right outside the rooms. Safeway is right across the parking lot so easy to pick up snacks, drinks and forgotten items if needed. The room was clean and felt comfortable, we had a […] fridge AND a microwave included in our room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great place to relax after a long drive"
For the price, i was very impressed with all the services and perks this hotel had to offer. When we checked in, we were informed of a free reception taking place wherein there was complimentary beer and wine being served as well as soft drinks for the kids. Having been on the road all day, we weren't in the mood for the reception, but it was a nice […] thing to be offered, nonetheless. The room was nice and VERY clean as was the breakfast buffet area, fitness center, and pool. The only complaint I could make was that someone had left towels in the sauna and it smelled like dirty socks. Honestly though, that was nothing when compared to the rest of our stay. We sat by the fireplace and enjoyed our breakfast, while watching the morning news and it was perfect for our situation. I will be going back, next trip to the area.

"NO TV . THIS IS NOT GOOD."
THEY SAID THAT THEY WERE JUST CHANGING OVER TO HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS AND HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE TV. IF WE DIDN'T HAVE TV THEY WOULD SEND SOMEONE TO FIX IT. THAT WAS A LIE. WE CALLED TWICE AND THEY DID NOT COME. WE ARE THINKING THAT THE WHOLE HOTEL WAS OUT OF TV AND THERE WAS NO WAY TO FIX IT. LIES UNCALLED FOR SO WE WILL NOT STAY AGAIN. DEGenuine Expedia guest review
"Easy access to 205....but under new ownership."
We stayed at the Oxford Suites, Janzen Beach, Oregon in 2011 while in Portland visiting family. We really like the hotel and was happy to learn of an Oxford Suites in Gladstone,Oregon...closer to family. When we arrived the facility was under construction. The Front Desk Clerk told us the Holliday Inn Express purchased this facilty. Had we know this […] in advance we would have went back to the Jenzen Beach Hotel. We did not get any kinda of discount because of the inconvience of the construction. Expedia should have known that this Hotel was now Haliday Inn and under construction and offered some kind of credit for this room. We stayed 6 nights. I will not use Expedia again unless its a deal to good to pass up. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good View of Clackamas River"
Good sized room and clean. Housekeeping was friendly when I saw them in the hallway. The front desk wasn't overly friendly. I've stayed at this hotel at least a dozen times because I have a friend that lives close so I've gotten used to the area. It's a nice place, something was just different this time. They were remodeling the lobby but the workers […] were only there during the day and it wasn't a big deal. The front desk ladies just kind of had the attitude that they didn't like their job and it showed. The girl that checked me in was nice and helpful but after that I could barely get one to look up from their papers or phone when I walked in. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We liked the room but not the location or maybe it was there was not any restaurants within walking a short distance. We arrived about 9:30pm and wanted something to eat. There's a Safeway next door, so that's what we did.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We needed a room for one night as our home was being worked on. Location was good for us. We invited our granddaughter to come and swim. Hotel offers complimentary wine/beer & soup/salad during evening hours and a buffet breakfast - pancakes & eggs cooked to order. Very nice!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel away from the busy downtown area."
This hotel fit within our vacation budget, included free breakfast, laundry facility and A/C in the room. It is in the middle of a business area on the edge of the Clackamas River; we had a nice view from our 3rd floor balcony. Free breakfast helped save on meal expenses. They offered cereals, breads, coffee/milk/juice and a cafeteria-like line if you […] wanted to get a hot breakfast - pancakes, waffles, french toast, eggs, bacon, sausage, etc. In the evenings there was a reception where they offered complimentary beer, wine and finger foods. Toiletries included bottles of hand soap/shampoo/conditioner/bath soap. Hairdryer, ironing board, fridge and microwave was available in our room. I used the laundry room once - you do have to pay to use the machines, it is not a free service. There are computers with internet access available in lobby. The staff was friendly and helpful. Checking in and checking out was painless. Given the location and amenities available, my impression is that this hotel is geared toward traveling business people. It is not a luxury hotel you would want to hang out at all day, but is perfect for having a place to shower and sleep. Not much do in Gladstone, most of the action is in downtown Portland. Bonus: Pet friendly - but aggressive breeds not allowed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A tad run down but clean"
No mold - clean rooms - firm beds. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was eggs cooked to order plus meat etc. MUCH better than a continental breakfast. Given that I wasn't eating potatoes or wheat, I had to go back a couple times to get enough to eat. I would much rather serve my own bacon, thanks. They also had a good free beer on tap for cocktail […] hour. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We loved our stay at the Oxford Suites."
People at the front desk were friendly and helpful as were the people working in the dining room. The amenities were beyond other places we stayed, drinks in the evening, salad and soup bar, and full breakfast in the morning. The rooms were large and clean. We are telling our fiends who travel to the West Coast to stay at the Oxford Suites.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was not at all like it was presented on your website. Although it was very clean, the carpet was dirty and stained, the furniture was old and 40's or 50's era furniture and curtains were old, very old.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pretty Good hotel, for the Road."
For a road hotel, it's a good one. If you wanna experience Portland, you should better look for better location, inside the city. Allthough, pretty good rooms and facility, good staff and OK breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great value for business!"
The free breakfast didn't have tons of choices but saved me the cost and hassle of going somewhere else to eat, and the refrigerator in the room made things very pleasant. Best of all, the business center allowed me to print, make a few copies, and send faxes free. Just what I needed and a big time saver!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
