"Great location is what you pay for"
Right in the heart of the convention center are and on the MAX line makes this a perfect BUDGET stay. Mind you amenities and rooms themselves are a bit rough. If you just need a place to crash while getting around downtown then this is a good fit - just don't get a room facing the MAX line on the 2-4 floors or you have an automatic alarm clock starting […] around 5:30AM Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I attended the Oregon Dental Conference. It is right across M L King Way from the Oregon Convention Center. I wish they would update the decor it's the same as it was when I stayed here years ago. but it is clean the staff was very courteous and helpful. And the bed was comfortable. I'll probably stay here again next year. MAX runs right in front of […] hotel and you can go anywhere. Fast Food nearby. And Lloyd's Center is just 2 stops from the Convention Center Station. Closest to Convention Center Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Economic Choice"
This is a great choice for the budget traveler, especially if you are in Portland to attend an event at the convention center. And even if not, it's really close to a variety of public transit options. The service was great. Friendly. Helpful. If you're looking for luxury, this is not your hotel. Bit if you're looking for a very decent, inexpensive, […] conveniently-located hotel, this is an excellent choice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The location is right next to the tram which is perfect for quick commutes around the city and downtown. Though the walls are thin and the hotel itself is pretty old, the staff are really nice and know a lot about where you can go in the city. You definitely get what you pay for so I would say it's a perfect location for travelers who don't need much […] more than a bed and shower. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near Public Transit"
Choose this hotel based on proxoty of Max Light rail from airport Very convenient location. To downtown in minutes using Portland's Light rail.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"easy access to downtown"
This place is perfect if your looking for something affordable and with easy access to down town . We used it as a place to sleep after a couple pubs and a show. If you want a bell hop and concierge go someplace else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the price"
The balconies don't open and the entire hotel is non smoking, so that sucked. But overall it was a good value for the money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A lesson learned"
Chose this hotel with price in mind and basically got what I paid for. The room had an "odd" smell to it, it was hard to heat up the room, and the lighting in the room was poor. Our room was off the MAX, so first thing the morning we heard the train running.. Lesson learned...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was friendly, courteous. The room was nice size, very clean and very comfortable king bed and the price was extremely reasonable. The elevators, hallways and outside of the hotel are badly in need of renovation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for just planning to sleep"
We chose the hotel for its proximity to downtown, it met that expectation. The hotel itself was kind of run down, but the beds we're comfy and the room was plenty spacious. Pillows were a little flat - I'd bring my own. According to the manager, they had purchased the hotel a month before we stayed, and they were trying to save up revenue to begin renovations. […] Given a few months, I'd stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location - easy to get from/to airport, lots of places to eat within walking distance, safe neighborhood. The carpet in a room was stained, but you can't change carpet every time after nasty people! The bathtub wasn't suitable for the bath, but OK to take a shower. Beds are comfy, got a good night rest. If you are planning just to spend a night […] there - it's good for the money (under $65) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient location but few options around"
location good but hotel is a bit run down...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Seen better, but seen worse"
Great location! Easy to get to the airport, across the street from Convention center (which was our prim. destination) and considering it was raining like crazy it was a huge plus. The hotel itself worn down, our carpet had some stains (looked like blood), but hey - how often you can change the carpet after people who's making a mess? The bathroom wasn't […] the cleanest either, but I wasn't planning of taking a bath. The beds are comfy, we were at the end of corridor and didn't hear any noise (3rd floor), so had a good night rest. For the money it was a good stay - just needed a place to sleep for 3 nights, nothing more. Stuff is polite and helpful. Save neighborhood, places to eat withing walking distance.

Was put in a non-smoking room with a big sign on the door (circle with a line through it and a cigarette in the middle) but the whole room clearly smelled of smoke with a huge pile of ashes on the night stand. The bathtub was dirty with grey spots and the wall paper was peeling everywhere. The whole room was beat up as if the last inhabitants had a […] frat party. The glass doors to the faux balcony looked like a dog had slobbered all over them and also had a bunch of hand prints. I had arrived late and could not change my room until the next day which was somewhat of an improvement since there was no smoke and alittle less beat up. The nightstand beside the bed had a big greasy stain as if someone had eaten a greasy burger and laid it there but it was never wiped clean. GROSS!!! Despite the filth, the front desk was helpful as much as they could be and the location is great. It was quiet at night, not noisy even though the light rail runs directly in front of the hotel. If this place was remodeled and cleaned up (and kept that way) it could be a good place! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
After being booked at the wrong hotel , the Staff at the Red Lion were more than accomodating. The bed was so comfortable, I wish I could have stayed longer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very comfortable for the price. Friendly service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel location for going to the convention center was the best in town. It was walking distance with good parking. The location puts rooms overlooking Tri-Met so the trolley cars going by all night we're quite an interesting noise like an airplane landing. Did not keep me awake. The hotel staff was very accommodating and friendly making the visit […] enjoyable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Location, Generic Service"
So, the Inn at the Convention Center is where I stayed for the 2014 Portland Comic Convention. I was a little late to order my tickets, but I got them, whereas the nearby Red Lion and other resorts filled to capacity sooner than the Inn, despite it being a hair closer. I figured this would be one of those 'get what you pay for' resorts and to that end, […] I was mostly correct. The windows are single-paned and radiate cold, the televisions feel a bit archaic with their choice in channels (I never found the HBO channels they said they served) and the service behind the counter ranges between stony glares, rigid tones and the smiles are genuinely missing, something I didn't think I would miss as much as I would. Aside from that, their aloe vera soap smells fantastic, they have all the standard amenities, the heater is functional and only the stairwell is in any sort of disrepair. There's no vandalism, smokers loitering (for those of you who wonder), the rooms are clean and it has a mid-day check-out time, as well as a bare bones, two-level parking garage. The location is great and I could look forward to staying here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice about having pets but max was right below window which was a little loud.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gross and rude staff"
This was probably the nastiest hotel I have ever stayed in. The front desk was extremely rude! If I could have gotten our money back we would have left. Police were patrolling the hotel to "crack down on some suspicious activity" and that is an exact quote from a staff member. DO NOT STAY HERE! Spend the extra $10 or $20 bucks and go to red lion.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Old hotel in front of the convention center"
Even refurbished several times, the place looks old. Few practical details needs to be perfected (the dryer doesn't work, mini fridge doesn't work, the overall look, etc) but so far, you got what you pay for.Genuine Expedia guest review
The service during the days was good but a night when I needed it the service was not at all got to work on that !!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for what you need!"
I love this hotel. It is walking distance from the public transit system, convention center, and Moda Center. The staff is laid bak and the hotel itself has a college town vibe. You know they expect you to have a good time when there is a bottle opener drilled by the sink counter :) I recommended this place to whomever I know is visiting. The accomadtions […] are okay, but you can't beat the price! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the price"
This is a $60/night hotel at best.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everytime i went down to the lobby the police were there and twice they had someone handcuffed right there in the lobby and they were in the hallway of the floor where i was staying and it upset my children. I think this hotel reports everyone who is staying there to the police and then they come to the hotel and arrest everyone with arrest warrants […] and i think this is very poor business practice as a hotel is in the business of renting rooms and not policing! This made me very very uncomfortable and i will never ever stay there again and i will tell everyone i know and facebook not to stay there! I paid top dollar to stay there because on line they made it seem like a good place to stay, it would have been if it had not been for the police being in the lobby every time i went down there! Thats what made me uncomfortable was the police! Not the other guests! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"With a few changes this could be a very good hotel"
The overall experience of my week at the Inn was a very good one. For me, hotels come down to comfort of the bed, sound levels, convenient to Public Transport and city night-life, general safety of building and surrounding neighbourhood, and helpful staff. I am a light-sleeper so earplugs and a sound machine with the room's wall heater drowned out noise. The […] decor is stained and dated but the furniture is functional and comfortable. The floor to ceiling windows and accompanying black-out curtains are a big plus. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A nice place"
When i'm in Portland, I enjoy this hotel. There are rooms with awesome views of the city and it breath taking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right next to MAX line"
While the amenities weren't that great, the fact that it is right next to the MAX line and the convention center make it an Ideal and realitively inexpensive hotel to stay at.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very old hotel which needs restoration."
I got the wrong impression from the selling points. I was expecting a microwave or a refrigerator. I felt unsafe walking in the immediate area except for the convention center.Genuine Expedia guest review
Recently when I flew in to visit some family, my flight was delayed, causing me to miss the last train out. I booked a night here and was all over pleasantly surprised. For a hotel next to the convention center it was priced like a hotel on the outskirts of town. The building is a little older, and it's easy to tell that they are falling behind the […] times a bit, but it was cozy and comfortable. The walls are pretty thin, so probably not the best place for couples who are louder. The location is nice, just about any chain you'd want to eat at is within a few blocks, right next to the tram line leading up to the airport and down to downtown. Short tram ride away from the Amtrak station as well. In one night this hotel has become my new go too budget hotel for Portland. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to downtown, max and event venues."

"Hotel priced for budget minded people"
This is the 4th year of an annual convention in which I've stayed at the Inn at the Convention Center. There were a lot of changes and upgrades I've noticed since my last stay. My room now had its own microwave, the fridge was larger and the carpet looked new. Yes, this is an older hotel and it's seen better days. However, considering the prices are […] about 1/3 of what other hotels within 2-4 block charge, it's a STEAL of a bargain. I've seen others rip into this hotel regarding cleanliness, "interesting" guests, staff, etc. I've gotta say that I've never once experienced any of these issues or problems. Either others are exaggerating a wee bit or they're expecting to have the Ritz Carlton on a tiny budget. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Convenient location, but not worth it."
I was in town overnight to attend a concert at the Moda Center. I was looking for a cheap hotel, close proximity to the Moda Center, and this hotel certainly fit the bill. Unfortunately there are too many negative attributes for me recommend it as a place to stay, even for one night, even if all you care about is the convenient location. The hallway, […] room, elevator, everything had an odor. Our room on the 4th floor faced the street and there was constant noise from the streetcar. It was very loud. The walls of the room seemed paper thin because we could hear entire conversations happening in the room next to us. When we woke up in the morning, the tree just outside our window had been decorated with underwear and a condom. And that morning the hallway reeked of vomit. To be fair I am giving them a high score for their location, because it was very convenient. But we were only in the room for a total of 6 - 7 hours and that was enough to make sure that I will never stay here again. And I would recommend that you heed my advice and do the same. Stay across the street at the Red Lion, or find a place a few blocks away. The extra time walking will be worth it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed here a few times about 10 years ago, which is apparently the last time they did anything to the place. Not clean, not comfortable, I had to pull the fridge out and set it on the counter to turn it on, there were water leaks, an uncomfortable bed, even the wallpaper was peeling. I was afraid to set my stuff on the floor or furniture. No running […] around in your socks here. YUCK! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pretty gross hotel, stained sheets, smoke smell"
Cigarette burns in the sheets , stains all over the bed coverings. Bad smell of smoke and stale odors. NoisyGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was not selected for it accommodations but for it's proximity to the Convention Center, as a hotel goes in my experience it was passable and if I needed to stay in Portland for the same reason in the future I would.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near where I had to be"
I stayed at this hotel because is was near where I had to be for an event. It was in walking distance and was fairly neat and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was acceptably clean, but in need of maintenance & repairs. Hallways a bit dingy and narrow. Key cards didn't work well and lighting was poor. Location across from convention center was very convenient, and parking was free and easily accessed. Rates affordable on a per diem budget. Service was courteous. Amenities pretty much non-existent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An inexpensive lodging near the C Ctr"
The location is ideal for Convention Center visitors. But it is a budget hotel. You will smell prior smokers, hear the all night clang of Portland trollys. Coffee is fine, room was clean. Manager was welcoming.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Inn at the Convention Center was true to its name in location; we did have a nice view from our room of the Convention center towers and the river. The rooms were inexpensive for the location, but I would say that the quality of the rooms were lower, accordingly. Lots of stains on the carpet, poor lighting in the room (it felt dark even with all […] of the lights on), no functional exhaust fan in the bathroom, etc. Sheets, towels, and bedding were clean, but the sheets seemed threadbare like all of the cotton was washed out of them. Not a bad place to stay if you are not planning to spend any time in your room except bathing and sleeping. Close to the Max line and downtown. I enjoyed the short walk over the bottom level of the steel bridge to downtown and Powell's Books, and the neighborhood seemed clean and safe, even at night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not great but not the worst"
This hotel looks like it hasn't been updated in a long time. Fixtures, furniture, decor, all seem retro (not in a good way). I didn't have any problems with it being blatantly dirty like other people reviewed. It's just outdated. The lobby smells like lollipops in a weird way. The wi-fi was non existent. The one time I got a signal for their wi-fi was […] when standing outside the lobby in the driveway, and then it disappeared when I stepped inside. The location is great for people attending anything at the Convention Center. It's also right next to a MAX stop. And hey, it's cheap. What can you really expect?

"The worst customer service EVER!"
I booked and paid online for a room. I showed up before they had gotten the reservation. Because I made an error in reading, I didn't have enough money on my card to cover the deposits. Seeing as how they just received the reservation, one would think I would get my money back, since they wouldn't rent the room to me. They would not. If the tables were […] turned, I would've done it without thinking twice. I will never use them again and will tell all of my friends and family as well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"tramway noise all night long"
The side I was located had trollies on rails rolling back and forth in the street less then 30 feet from our room till after midnight. It was loud, annoying and impossible to sleep, relax, or enjoy any quiet what so ever.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not at all what I thought it was."
The Wi-Fi did not work. Shower took awhile to warm up. Wakeup call was late. The cable box did not work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Funky hotel close to downtown."
Close to downtown. Shabby building, in need of sprucing up. The room had a strong odor that became tolerable, once I aired out the place. I had to keep the outside fan on all of the time to keep the odor under control. Other than that, and the funky condition of the room and hotel, I was quite comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
