"All it needs is a grimy, neon sign"
There's nothing really wrong with this place; it's just as you would expect for an economy lodging off the beaten path and this is all said in the title "Econo Lodge Expo Center". It's relatively easy to get here by MAX if you don't mind a little walking and I did the crazy thing of trudging through the freezing rain during a freak Portland winter storm all the way from downtown in about 2 hours. There isn't much nearby; you have to go down MLK a ways before you get past the fast food and car dealerships to start finding coffee shops or bars. MLK is an easy street to catch a bus up or down, though, so it isn't so bad. The room itself had a dearth of working power outlets, one of the lamps was unplugged, and I found a Kit Kat wrapper when remedying that. The WiFi worked for me briefly and then not at all the remainder of the time. The room did have a nice refrigerator, microwave, and television but I wasn't there long enough to make much use of them. The bathroom was clean, fully working, and shampoo/soap/conditioner was provided. There's no safe and it isn't the most savory area so I'd be careful about bringing anything important in here. I missed the complimentary breakfast but they did still have some watery coffee.

"Perfect place to crash for the night"
I had a night to kill in portland and needed a place to stay. This place was really accessible with especially for people like me with no car and had to depend on public transport. The place is affordable with very good service also :)

"Served its purpose"
The room was fine. It wasn't dirty really, it just needed better maintenance. Staff was friendly. The only thing that was really bad was the drunk people trying to get into my room over and over convinced that it was their room. Kinda scary.

"There were actual fresh from jail people there"
I have never actually heard the phrase "I ain't going back to no jail" yelled by a shirtless man in real life, only in movies. I was somewhat worried about being murdered in my own bed. The staff was equally disturbing.

"not much to see but not the worst"
room was clean and somewhat comfortable. they need to not list that they have a continental breakfast. I got there before 8 am and there was one package of powdered mini donuts and two english muffins left. It was an attempt. it was mostly quiet which was nice. much further from down town than the directions I was given.

The hotel seemed clean, there was a hole in the bathroom door. The hotel staff was not very friendly. There were so strange people hanging outside the hotel and made me nervous, I think they were pros. It was a cheap hotel and it served it purpose, however I will not be staying there again

"Hotel in a trucking district"
My experience was a little scary. I was not sure about the people who was staying at the hotel. There was gangster vehicles in the parking lot that made me feel a little unease. It was very noisy because the hotel is in an industrial district. I checked into the hotel to use the internet to take my final for a graduate course I was taking. After checking my email and a few other sites I didn't feel comfortable starting final and not being able to finish it. The breakfast was not what I was expecting as well. There was not fruits, muffins, orange juice, or milk.

"Nice employees, stained, wet carpet."
The desk clerks were really nice. The rooms are battered and stained. The carpet was wet. But it had been vacuumed, there were clean sheets, the AC worked and the bathroom was clean. Whaddya want for a good deal? My room was non-smoking and it was indeed, free of any smoke smell. I'd go back again. The neighborhood is warehousey and a bit sleazy with a strip joint nearby, but there was a lot of road traffic and it didn't feel like there were creeps lurking or anything.

"Dirtiest hotel I've ever seen!"
There were blood stains on my bed sheet and pillow case. The maid said it was okay because they had been washed, but they stain didn't come out. They replaced both the sheet and pillow case. The pillow case they replaced it with had dirt stains on it like someone walked across it with shoes on. All the pillows themselves had gross yellow stains on the and the furniture in the room was covered in dirt, dust and stains. My son and I slept on top of the covers in our own sleeping bags and used our own pillows. A complete waste of money!

"Seedy area but room was fine"
Other than loud, seedy characters near and in the motel it was fine, nothing the Food Network couldn't drown out. I was a little worried about the area, but there were no issues. The staff was helpful and friendly. For a place to sleep for two nights it was fine, there was no real ambiance, but I didn't expect there to be for $55 a night.

"Right in the ghetto!!"
I could have stayed in this hotel and been fine but most people would not be. The thing I was not comfortable with was leaving my belongings in the room while I was out. The people hanging about outside were of questionable character. Would not recommend for anything besides a quick overnight stay by someone who does not scare easily!!

"very poor customer service"
The WiFi was not working properly, the desk clerk said she would reset the router, after a half an hour she still had not reset the router so I went to the office and she was doing her paperwork and said she would do it when she was done with her paperwork. I stood there for fifteen more minutes while she did paperwork which was obviously more important than an actual guest. The reset worked for five minutes, so I checked out rather than wait around for her to decide I was important enough to do her job for.

"You get what you pay for!"
This was the cheapest hotel I could find, because I just wanted to stay overnight after a party rather than have a 3-hour drive afterward. I wasn't too concerned with the area or the amenities, as long as it was in city limits. There was a fridge in the room, which was nice (those seem to be an endangered species). There was free outdoor parking onsite. There was wireless internet, though it didn't really work and I switched back to my mobile phone's internet. The toilet did this weird, loud, periodic refill of its tank and I had to get in and tweak it to make it stop. All in all, a good value if you just want a place to sleep, but if you can spend an extra $50 and stay in a nicer area, you'll enjoy yourself much more.

"Stay somewhere else!"
This was possibly the worst place I have ever stayed! It was an awful area, smelled bad, poor service, mold in the tub, dirty pillows, plywood in one of the windows, cigarette burns in the blanket, noisy, thin walls, trains, tons of traffic, I could go on and on. I am soooo not a snob either but would rather sleep in my car than ever stay here again. Pitiful breakfast that we wouldn't have dared to eat anyway.Staff must smoke in the lobby since it reeked. Just bad. Even the parking sucked as I got blocked in my spot.

"Scary and unsafe!"
The room itself wasn't horrible, but the other people (presumably living there) were frightening. All night long guys hung out on the walkway (outside my door.) I could hear couples shouting and babies crying until after midnight. I was scared for my life the entire night. Spend a couple more bucks somewhere else and stay safe!

I booked this for my mother without reading reviews. When my family showed up there first impression was terrifying. They said it was like rolling into a crack house. Do I really need to comment on the room after that. I can't believe a name brand hotel would keep their name on the sign.

"Only cremora for coffee :("
I needed a cheap place to overnight in PDX. Reception was nice, wrote down a taxi number for me. But my only problem was that no one had milk for coffee. I ended up crossing a very busy street at 6:30 in the morning just so I could have coffee that I could drink. (I was on East Coast Time) and then at McDonalds, they looked at me funny and charged me for a kids bottle fo milk for my coffee because they only have half and half. I thought that coffee was popular on the West coast. They love wine, but seem to hate cows...

The hotel staff don't show much commitment to serving guests. I've tried to ask for help to at the help desk but most of the time they are not there. I was expecting a guest one day, which I hadn't told the receptionist about. But the receptionist gave my friend access to my room without calling me first to confirm. We all know the consequences of this action if I the guest was not someone I knew. Also the hotel is too close to busy roads so it quite noisy at night when you trying to find some sleep.

Pros Fridge, Microwave, Two queen beds, Nice TV with few channels, Clean overall. Free breakfast in morning. Cons: Limited selection of muffins / Cakes at free breakfast, Hotel is on a busy corner so can be tough to get into or out. Nothing of excitement within walking distance. For a reasonable rate hotel it was worth it If you attending events are Expo center or PIR I would recommend this hotel.
