Looking past the the old and trashy rooms, this hotel offers nothing! The staff was extremely rude. The front desk attempted to keep most of my deposit because another person exited as the same time as myself so the clerk argued and argued that I needed to pay for an extra person. Then as I was leaving the clerk came outside to see and continues to […] argue. I almost called the police. I will not stay here again!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Domestic abuse & drunks"
In the room, one floor above mine, there was two hours of domestic abuse that kept me awake all night. In addition to that, there were drunk people kicking my motel room door because they couldn't remember which room was there. None of the lamps worked, the power outlets weren't working, and one of my pillow cases had lipstick stains all over it. Not […] a good experience. All night in that motel I wised all the transient people outside my window would stop cursing at eachother. Not worth saving all that money for such a run down motel.

"Very convenient to local transport and businesses"
It was very comfortable, helpful and friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Thin walls and ceiling"
The room was very noisy with next doors TV and conversation and upper floors foot steps. The WiFi was very slow. It was often disconnected. Nobody is able to watch any films. The parking was very narrow. That was only for compact car. I'm sorry, I won't be come back.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good for the money spent."
Rooms could have been arranged differently to maximize space and comfort for the guest. Water pressure in the shower was horribleGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was very spacious and included a pantry area complete with fridge, microwave, counter and cabinets, table and chairs. There was a person at the front desk 24 hours a day. It was relatively quiet although my room had two windows that would not shut completely. Very close to the MAX and Streetcar stops. Food very close by and reasonably priced. […] The food was not fancy just some sandwich, coffee and pizza shops. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine for the price"
There were no towels in my room. I discovered this getting out of the shower. The front desk probably would have given some to me, but it was a little annoying. Otherwise, the room was what you would expect from a motel like this. Nothing special. The bed was fine, the room was clean. It's not a great place and the building shows its age, but I would […] stay here again (at least on a weeknight). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Budget hotel, good location"
This hotel is located right next to the transit lines, easy to reach from almost anywhere. Good pizza place next door. Housekeeping did not make up our beds, which I thought was weird. But it was a fine place to stay for a few nights if you're not expecting luxury.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place was one of the worst I ever stayed in. It was filthy, bedsheets were stained, bathroom was unfit for human use and there was a kitchen adjoining the bedroom that looked out on the adjoining street with no curtains. It looked like a crackhouse but I am probably insulting crackhouses. No TV or hair dryers. Closet doors had no doorknobs and […] the original lock was replaced with an insubstantial lock. Other guests complained of no electricity and showers that would not shut off. The place would make a great location for a "slasher movie". After one nite they moved me to an affiliated hotel which was marginally better. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable and well-located"
There seemed to be a lot of young people staying here and maybe making a racket (we saw signs to this effect), but we didn't notice a lot of noise. We did see a beer can in the hallway, and it had a little bit of a roughness around the edges, but at that location and that price, it was a very good deal and quite comfortable. The folks behind the counter […] were very nice and helpful. The hotel is located right next to a public transportation stop, and there are a few restaurants and bars very close-by; we were able to find a pita sandwich in the middle of the night.

"Lots of Stairs, but good overall"
booked because it was downtown, affordable & had a restaurant/bar attached. We were traveling with children and wanted to be able to unwind safety while they went to bed. Downfall, no elevator...I'm big on taking the stairs, but when hauling up super heavy luggage (I made a stop in Portland after a month long vacation, so between me and my daughters […] luggage, I had to haul about 70 pounds up three flights of stairs) good work out, but dangerous. Overall, close to shopping down town, some parks for all the kids. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Very outdated. Ugly Carpet. Old Furnishings. Hair Dryer Did Not Even Work. Outdated TV. Had To Park Across The Intersection On The Other Side Of The Street And Pay $8.00 To Park Overnight. Carry My Luggage From The Parking Lot, Cross The Intersection, Pass A Bar With Several Patrons Sitting Outside Drinking And Sterring At You As You Walk By With All […] Your Luggage Because you Could Not Even Park In Front Of the Place To Unload Your Vehicle And Check In.

"The hotel was ok."
The hotel was ok. Right across the street from Portland State University. My room was directly over a bar which meant music until about 2:30 am. The room was ok, overall.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient and cheap!"
Great place to stay if you're looking for something cheap near downtown. Right next to metro and very convenient.Genuine Expedia guest review
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. We received an infestation of bed bugs all over our bodies. We are normally the type that will push the envelope on a hotel. You dont stay there that much, its just a bed, etc. The location was great, the price was great. I could even stand that the rooms showed significant wear and tear. The staff […] tha twe spoke with were pleasant although they didnt do much. The garbage was emptied one day but that was the extent of our service. We had to ask for TP and some other room consumables. EVEN STILL I would have said its not THAT bad and considering the location and price I would stay there again. NO MORE! This is the worst case of bed bugs I have ever seen. This hotel just bumped to the 2nd worst I have EVER stayed at. The Hotel clerk watching XXX rated movies and not ceasing to do so when we approached is the only place worse! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I Wouldn't Stay Here Again if You Paid Me To."
This place was horrible: -The beds are like sleeping on rock slabs -Tthe room temperature was either too cold or too hot -There are only 10 open parking spots in a TINY sparking lot and if they are full, you have to pay to park on the street -You can't have visitors past 10 pm, and if you have any extra people staying in your room, you pay an extra […] $15/night -The towels were dingy and yellowed. -The room was cramped and uncomfortable. -Staff was not friendly. The only good things about this hotel was that it was conventiently located in downtown Portland. I would never recomment this hotel to anyone, even if it was the only hotel open in town. Will never go back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dirty room, rude service"
The place was well situated in Downtown Portland, but that's about all it had going for it. Room was dirty, had dirty towels still on the floor and smelled of cigarettes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenience nice for the price!"
They had the better water pressure of the downtown motels around Portland State, making for a refreshing hangover shower! The beds were comfortable, but the rooms were kind of chilly. Since we were just in our rooms to sleep and to get ready to go out, the street noise did not bother us. Parking was not fun, the hotel offers limited spaces, otherwise […] you are at the mercy of PSU's nazi parking brigade (potentially $43.00 fines). The convenience was well worth the price, located near the Max/trolley/Bus Mall and walking distance from the heart of downtown we only used the car to get there and leave.

"Downtown Value Inn"
Not bad for a no-frills hotel. Friendly staff, and decent price. Great location downtown, but lousy parking garage. Also, every appliance in the room was SUPER loud (heat, bathroom fan). Could use some more modern appliances, but for the price it was a decent hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When we checked in, the guy was all business, but very friendly. The rooms were very standard and nothing special. We did have to plug in the microwave and refrigerator in both rooms. In my room, the power cable to the microwave was not long enough to reach the outlet. We went out the first night to do a pub crawl for my birthday. The location of this […] joint was perfect. Made walking to and from the bars very easy. The second night, we all were too exhausted to go out, so we grabbed a bottle of wine and played some card games in the room. We called it a night about 1am. At about 3am, there was a knock on my door. I answered it and it was the police. They said that they got a noise complaint from my room! I assured the officers that it could not have been us. As an after thought, it may have been us, but the police arrived two hours late and we definitely were not as rowdy as some rooms around us as we went to bed. Overall, this is isn't a terrible place to spend a weekend. If you are going out and drinking. If you are looking for a nice relaxing weekend at a hotel with a hot tub or pool, spend a bit more money Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Room comfort: settings on thermostat are confusing. Managers were helpful re directing me to restaurants and generally being responsive to questions.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Room okay, but noisy."
Overall the room wasn't bad. The facility is old, bathrooms have been updated but rest of room not so much. Lighting was poor at best, and poorly located. Biggest issue was the noise...located above a pizza place that had a live band/loud music starting at 11:00 p.m. on the Saturday night before the Portland Marathoon...since running the marathon was […] the reason for the trip, lack of sleep was a big issue. Would not return for this one reason. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"leaves a bit to be desired"
Location was terrific. For rooms being updgraded/refurbished in 2009, hope they did not pay too much. Very poor workmanship on tile (numerous crumbling crevise's visible) in BR, bath tub faucet was not stationary on the wall, furniture looked liked various old (not antique) items not matching from a garage sale. It provided shelter, soap and towels […] but NO other amenities like an alarm clock or hairdryer. For the $$ not worth it in my opinion. Did have a TV frig and micro which we did not need. Hall carpeting made you dizzy and a strong cooking oil odor was in the hallway both days. Parking garage very difficult to maneuver in- actually was told to 'back out' onto 5th street traffic due to one way exit being blocked. The angle of lhe lot back ward was nearly a 45 degree to 90 dgree uphill. Also had to wake up front counter man who was deep asleep at the counter to check out at 8AM..

If you want a good decent price room, downtown, this could be the place. If your picky about things, think again. The room was clean, the bath was nice, needed some cleaning, the beds were clean, but the mattresses were worn some. But overall a decent place to stay for the price and location. Desk help was good, inet was good and pizza and beer next […] door to the hotel. Parking was tight, but reminds me of european parking garages. If you have a big car, street parking will be needed. Small cars can park under the hotel in the garage. I would stay there again the next time I am in Portland due to the location, and the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient for few nights"
Very nice location, but the rooms are not cleaned at all during your stay and its not a very charming hotel, but its okay I guess. I would recommed stayingg in Portland Northwest if you are a turist - its much more charming and close to cafées and shops and suchGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad for a cheap motel downtown"
Given the reasonable price and great location, I would definitely stay here again. It's not by any means a fancy place, but does well for a place to stay. It was convenient to downtown, and close to public transportation. My room wasn't cleaned after the first night there, which I'm not sure if it was just overlooked or if that's their policy or something, […] but it was clean and available when I arrived which is the important part.

"A motel not a hotel"
Most likely because this reservation was a "deal," we were placed in the oldest section of this MOTEL. No elevator and about 15+ steps up to the "first" floor. Someone not in good shape would have trouble if luggage was heavy. Room small, bathroom small with no place to put your make-up, etc. No coffee/tea service and no hair dryer. Asked the desk about […] the hair dryer and was told I would have to go to the desk in the AM and request one. Had fridge, microwave and air conditioner. The air conditioner was a good thing because you could turn it on and it would dampen or erase noise from parking lot right outside or folks in other units partying. When returned after more than 12 hours, found bathroom had been cleaned and new towels, etc., but the bed hadn't been changed or made. Nothing like coming "home" to an unmade bed. Lobby small with very little info about the city or what we could do there or how to get around. Would definitely never stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Overpriced! and smelly."
Thistles was an awful room. I'm very upset to have paid what was charged. The "non-smoking" room smelled strongly of stale smoke. The toilet ran the whole time, the shower only produced scalding hot water. The place just felt gross. I didn't even stay there the first night I was booked, stayed at a friend's place because I didn't want to go back after […] checking in. Would have paid half the price only because the location was good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good enough choice for Oregon Brewer's Festival"
We've stayed at this hotel 2 different years. It has free parking (some) and the rates were reasonable for the time of year. We walk from it to attend the annual Oregon Brewer's Festival (20 minute walk). The rooms were fine, the AC in our room was marginal. Needs to be recharged. The front desk provided decent instructions on how to use Portlands Tram […] System which has stops very very close to the hotel. Room maintenance was our only complaint. The cheap faucet on the shower came loose, making it impossible to alter the temperature of the water. Simultaneously the shower drain slowed a LOT. Not fun. I fixed the shower long enough to get rinsed off and informed the front desk. They didn't exactly seem surprised. So, if you're looking to attend the OBFestival, check and make sure the shower works when you check in and you'll enjoy your stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"don't even think about it"
I said, "Don't even think about it." Dirty and disgusting. Bugs. Stains. Smells. Arrived and no one at the desk. Parking is not assured, so if you do think about it and do it, get there early - then, stay in your car. It will be cleaner and just as comfortable. Bad. Just Bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the trouble!"
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and each night was very different. The first night's stay was awful - they put us in a room full of smoke, bathroom had not been updated in 20+ years, new paint and carpet needed throughout the whole room - it felt absolutely gross - even my husband was surprised! Then we moved to a different room the next night, […] and it felt more like a normal hotel - the bathroom had nice tiling, but the shower wasn't the cleanest. I was expecting to see lots of critters, but I'm happy to report that we did not. We had to spend extra money to park on the street or in parking lots surrounding the hotel because there were only 14 or 15 spaces and at least 30 rooms. Also, there are no elevators and it is a 3 story hotel (fortunately, we didn't have to go beyond the 2nd floor). We stayed there because it was walking distance to a meeting my husband had to attend, but we will not stay there again. There is an Econolodge one block away that looked like it had plenty of parking and possibly more updated. Since it was high season in Portland, I'm sure many people want to save money by staying here, but you might want to spend the extra dough and stay somewhere else - this place in unpredictable. The pizza place next door was good, though. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient for one night stay"
Very convenient location, overall hotel clean but a bit grungy. Impossibly small parking spaces make it very difficult to park in the hotel's garage - you may be lucky enough to find parking on the street.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Management, Great location, Great rate."
For an affordable and awesomely located motel, this is your place. We stayed there 8 nights while locating a place to move from the mid-west. The motel is next door to a tasty pizza place offering $2 pizza slice nights, rotating from cheese to Hawaiian. Yum! Also the FREE green, yellow, and streetcar lines are less than 30 seconds from your hotel room. […] Convenience. PSU is just a few blocks away as well as the Cultural district within a .25mile. We made use of the refrigerator in the room to store cheap and fresh produce from the many farmer's markets available in town along with a rotation of food cart visits! The room itself is well used, but still usable. Management is extremely nice and ready to answer questions if needed. For the price and the location its a great savings!

"Great location, lack of towels..."
If you want a cheap hotel in downtown Portland, this'll do. We asked for towels one day and were told no... that was funny. Otherwise, the room was fine enough and right on public transit lines which was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room was better than we had expected."
We chose this hotel because of it's location and price. We had read some previous negative reviews and were prepared for the worst. The room was better than we expected with evidence of some recent remodeling in the bathroom. There was no maid service and we had to ask for clean towels but since we were only there three nights it was no big deal. Parking […] was tight but it was included in the price. OK place if you're on a budget. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Served the purpose of being cheap"
This was a cheap hotel, and my goal was to save money. In that sense, I was successful, and I would consider staying there again due to the convenience of location and price. When I arrived, there was no one at the front desk, and I had to wait 5-10 minutes for someone to show up. There was no toilet paper when I checked in, although when I reported […] it (again, after a 5-10 minute wait since the front desk was unoccupied), they did bring some promptly, as well as the two extra pillows that I requested. Room was dusty. The only day that I didn't put the "privacy please" notice out, they replaced towels and cleaned the bathroom, but did not make the bed. A switch on the wall controlled numerous outlets, and they turned it off, letting my laptop completely drain it's battery. Comforter was frayed and sheets were very thin. One day someone was banging on a neighboring door at 6:30 in the morning and shouting to the person inside. They told me at check-in that the room I was in was in a quiet location. It was on the second floor facing the street corner, with both the light rail and streetcar going by. Perhaps most seriously, there was only one way out down the hall - the other way led to an exit door that had a cover over the handle that locked it. I can't help but wonder if that doesn't violate fire code. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Would never stay here again"
When I arrived at the Downtown Value Inn, there was no one at the desk and no one came even after ringing a bell several times. Finally a worker walked by and found the front desk person for me. Then they didn't have a room ready for me even though I had called an hour before on my way from the airport and they said it would be ready no problem. Then […] I went to my room and it was beyond crappy. All of the furniture was dirty and/or worn. The bathroom reeked of urine. When I started the tub faucet black chunks came out. The white towels were yellow/brown in spots, and I didn't want to touch anything. My room was on the corner right near one of the street cars so it is fairly loud. In the middle of the night my first night I was awoken at 12:30 am to slapping sounds, screaming, and banging noises from the room behind my bed that eventually stopped. While alright for my short stay, I would never stay here again and strongly recommend AGAINST any young female staying there by herself. The location near downtown was ideal for my stay but that was the only plus. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

easy to find off highway. Friendly staff who offered great suggestions for us to find food and wine when we checked in late at 9:30 at night. Comfy beds.
