"clean, quiet and close to airport"
Single female traveler felt safe and comfortable staying here. Friendly and very helpful staff too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and clean"
I arrived after midnight with no compromise to my reservation. The room was very clean and cozy but smaller than most so if you get a 1 queen bed room it will feel cramped with more than 2 people. Clean bathroom, no problems in the shower. The only problem may be if your are a light sleeper as the train runs very close by.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to airport"
Curteous and helpful front desk staff, room clean and comfortableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cost and comfoft"
It was a great place to stay for the price. Perfect for a little getaway for romance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was convenient to stay there. We went east to hike and view the waterfalls, mountains, etc. Good location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reviews are accurate"
I read the reviews and decided to book, not dissapointed at all. Most reviews are accurate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic but very clean"
I usually cringe when I drive by a motel. In fact, there were a few other motels en route to the Nordic that were cringe-worthy. Then we pulled into the Nordic. I was instantly impressed with the cleanliness and care from the outside. We popped into the office to get our key and we were greeted by a friendly gentlemen, who turned out to be the owner. […] The room was basic, TV, bed, microwave, fridge, bathroom, desk, table and chairs. What impressed me was how immaculate the room was. The bed was also fairly comfortable. We have to be back in Portland this coming weekend, so we booked again with the Nordic, since we know exactly what we'll be getting for our money - and the value is great. I've paid double the price for terrible chain hotels (e.g. Best Western and Comfort)... Worthy of a stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Friendly staff. Very affordable. Clean. BUT, non-smoking room reeked of smoke and air conditioning unit was difficult to start.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for the price and very clean!"
Immaculate, quaint, great pricing and 15 minutes to downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I don't usually write reviews, but the management here has done an exceptional job of providing a quality product at a reasonable price. Well done. We will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you just want to spend a night ... it's OK."
Location was quite far from Portland. Staff was quite pleasing. However , room given to me was along side road, hence got some road noise. Room was quite clean ... people staying in hotel was good.. parking was nice..Genuine Expedia guest review
"cleaned, no bed bugs, nice!"
good experience, the only thing I kind of not liked was the fact that there's no AC or mirror in the room, other than that, it was pretty good.Genuine Expedia guest review
It served my purpose.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is really clean and the staff are super nice. I travelled several days and this is one of the best hotel I stayed.Genuine Expedia guest review
It's a nice place tucked into a not so nice neighborhood. I never felt unsafe inside the hotel though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great little motel, super clean and comfortable"
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Nordic Motel. It's in a good location that is easily accessible to downtown Portland, the Columbia River Gorge, and Mt. Hood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A quality motel."
Nordic motel is a standard motel. Room was clean and did not smell like smoke (owner is very adamant about smoke not getting into the non smoking rooms). Table, 2 chairs, queen size-ish bed, small but clean bathroom, flat screen tv, dvd player, plastic cups, clean towels and bedding. Basically, what you would expect from a professionally run motel. […] Complimentary coffee/tea/hot cocoa until 11am. Not seedy at all. Location is about 10-15 minute drive to downtown, but close to the airport. Only negatives I found were, the train track is apparently close by, and our room was really warm though the air conditioner worked but was noisy (probably normal for most air conditioners, I guess). Overall, a good experience and the owners/managers were friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was a nice place for the cost of the room."
It was a nice place to stay for the cost of the room. Me and my 11 year old son stayed there 1 night. He liked the internet it was fast enough to play Mindcraft on. The bed was firm but comfortable sheets were clean it was within a few miles of food. Not a bad place really.Genuine Expedia guest review
This place is wonderful! What a find! Super clean, great management, easy walk to a great resturant (best fries I have had in years), and well organized room with microwave, fridge, cable, and hair dryer. As a single woman traveler I also felt very safe. I will always stay here when I come to Portland. Why pay more?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was very happy with my stay. The room was very clean and the staff was pleasant. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The owners clearly take pride in their establishment. The bathroom was small but adequate. The water pressure was great, and there was plenty of hot water. It was also quiet at night. The only drawbacks were no breakfast (just tea and […] coffee) and no pool. The Nordic Motel is a great value for the price, and I'll stay here again the next time I'm in Portland.

It's no Hilton but the owner is super friendly and helpful. The pool and hot tub were clean and the room was quite clean. Great place to sleep!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nordic Motel - August 2013"
An outstanding value. Greatly exceeded my expectations (everything in the room worked properly). Very clean, adequate amenities, but no breakfast. Free coffee. Highly recommended for those seeking low-cost accommodations near PDX.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Value for Money"
We stayed there for one night and it was ok. The staff was very friendly, our room seemed clean, though a bit small and it fitted the purpose for a place to crash. However, it was quite noisy (room neighbors and parking lot) but it's a motel and you can't expect too much for $65 per night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice motel just 10 minutes from Portland amenities"
Motel was pleasant and quiet, and was easy for us to visit sites in Portland and to travel to the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were initially dismayed to find the motel in a row of seedy-looking motels on a marginal part of town, and to see how small the rooms are. We were won over by the cleanliness, excellent service and overall professionalism of the owners. We stayed for 5 nights, feeling better about the Nordic every day.iGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing great value"
We could not have more happy at the Nordic Motel! Truly amazing; clean, easy to Portland Airport. Our first use of Hotels.com and not so happy with our two other booking experiences on the trip. We wound up staying at Nordic after our midnight arriving flight and then again before our 6am flight home. Just fabulous; easy, very polite office perns, quiet, […] safe, easy parking,l beds comfortable, spotless bathrooms, fluffy towels and plenty of them! Can't figure out how they manage it for the price! I was a hotel maid oh so many years ago and I KNOW a clean hotel room! (In the other budgets we stayed in I wanted to ask for cleaning supplies!) Some comments here refer to it's "poor location" but it is just an industrial area...no trees, or view, etc. but NOT dangerous in any way. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Don't let the road-inn appearance fool you, this is a very well maintained, comfortable and affordable hotel, especially for being relatively close to the airport where other, chain hotels, might charge a bit more for comparable rooms. The staff is very courteous and helpful. In the rooms, you get basic cable and DVD players, mini-fridges and microwaves. The […] only real downside to this hotel is the flipside of its convenient airport location. If you're staying for business or just passing through, it is a great choice. But if you're visiting Portland to see and experience the city, it is quite a drive from the city center, especially when rush hour makes the freeway often stop and go. But, it being Portland, a good alternative is to hop onto part of their quite good public transportation system, and walking or renting a bike to get around wherever buses, light rails or streetcars can't get you to. All in all, this hotel is a very fine bargain for the price you pay, and is well worth a stay if you are in the area and in need of a place to rest your head. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Better than anticipated"
Very clean, small room with a CD/DVD player as well as the giant flat screen TV. I don't like to watch violent movies before sleeping and that seemed to be all that was on SHOW TIME and HBO so it was very nice to be able to use the DVD player for something that I liked. Everything was very clean. I was right across from the office in room 24 and the […] noise was not too bad when other cars came and went. I slept well and didn't hear too much noise from the room next door, but I did hear some. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good for a night"
Stayed here for one night on two different occasions. Both times were when flying in/out of PDX early in the morning or arriving late at night. It was OK for a night at a time but if I were staying in Portland for any longer I'd stay someplace nicer. I had to complain one night about loud guests in the next room, but management took care of it quickly. […] Also beware that they will charge you for each additional person over 1 guest, which was about $8.00. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The motel was very easy to find. The rooms were large and comfortable. The refrigerator was great to have.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Tiny, Nice and clean for the price"
The hosts were very helpful, the room was tiny but very clean and quiet. A good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Sketchy neighborhood, but super nice proprietors and clean rooms with lots of upgrades.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very comfortable & clean."
Room was very clean. There wasn't a coffee machine in the room which was the only negative. Coffee is available in the lobby but if you need to check out early you're out of luckGenuine Expedia guest review
"Updated and clean"
Hotel was very clean and nice, you can tell it has been updated and renovated. The area is not near town but there is plenty nearbyGenuine Expedia guest review
really nice room, I just didn't realize how far away it was from downtown. I would stay there again even though the neighborhood is a bit out there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Treat you like family"
The hotel staff is extremely helpful and treated us like family. The room was spotless, and we had a wonderful visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The outside looks charming but the rooms are very dated. I always check the sheets and the mattress cover was stained with urine. That did it for me-went back to motel clerk and informed her we would not be staying. When I told her why she checked with someone and then told me she could show me other rooms where the mattress covers were also stained. […] I think she was trying to assure me this was no big deal but it had the opposite effect. Telling me more rooms were unacceptable would convince me stay? We left.

My wife wanted a nice hotel near the airport. This worked well for us. I would stay here again for an early flight .Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful little place"
I needed a place to stay near the airport for an early meeting. This little place had great ratings, so I gave it a try. It was everything they said. Clean, quiet, attracive, looked like a fresh update. Staff were very pleasant. Offered coffee and snacks in the morning, very nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Room was OK, Service was good."
The service at check-in was great. Based on the reviews I read, I was a little disappointed when I first entered our room; it smelled like smoke! The room was clean, the bathroom was great and the shower head made for a really nice shower. The bed was about what you would expect from a motel, a little sketchy, but overall OK. One thing to note, there […] was no iron in the room, but we asked at the front desk and they provided one for our use at no charge. We had a good stay here, we just needed a place to crash after flying into PDX. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Quiet Place"
This is a nice place to stay. All they need to make it percfect would be a pool. It's close to the highway to Portland and from the east. Nice eatery within walking distance as well, a Kmart, and several fast food, Friendly staff, clean rooms. My only complaint and it isn't really that major,is it is a small bathroom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrific, safe place near the airport"
Great value! The owners really take pride in their place and the amenities show it - super clean, great water pressure, super service on my way to the airport. My hosts made sure I had a cab lined up for airport service, they printed my boarding pass and sent me off with lovely tea!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stop for early or late airport travel"
I had thought from the photos that it was a hotel and was surprised to find a quaint little drive in motel with just 25 rooms. The exterior is fresh and clean as were the rooms. All the necessities were there and staff were friendly and helpful. We had stays at the beginning and end of a holiday weekend to the Columbia Gorge; came in at midnight one […] day and left at 5am the last day. It's very easy access to both highway 84 and to the airport. The price was right and we'll stay there again. My only complaint is the quality of the toiletries. I think a minor upgrade would be the cherry on top. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable Clean Restful"
Spent a night in a room at the Nordic Hotel and found all things well done. Clean, comfortable place with gracious hosts and ease with all aspects.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best affordable stay in Portland"
We have tried several affordable hotels for Portland visits and this one is the best. Personal, friendlly staff, inviting appearance. A small motel on the bus line, a short drive to the Max.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Diamond In The Rough"
While the neighborhood was a little sketchy, our stay was great. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and the service was excellent. We were a little concerned with the look of the surrounding area, and would not recommend going out alone at night (not overly dangerous just interesting characters). However, you will not find a better place […] to stay at this price. In fact we stayed at a "nicer" hotel our second night that cost much more and in a "better" part of town that was filthy and uncomfortable. If you are on a budget, stay at the Nordic. The only thing I wish I had known before our stay was that complimentary DVD players were available. I would have been content to stay in our room watching movies.

"Restored motor court"
This is a restored motor court. It looks like everything has been updated recently, both inside and out. It is very close to the airport, but not directly in the flight path. The operator was very nice and helpful. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel. It takes about an hour on the transit system to get downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very close to the airport"
I enjoyed my stay at Nordic Hotel. The owner was very gracious and kind. The room and the appliances in it were in excellent conditon. Very clean and quiet. The location is close to many big stores and other services. The only negative point is the neighborhood. I highly recommend it and I definitely will use it again if I had to.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Surprisingly super nice!"
This was a great place to stay. It was very clean, the bed was comfortable, had lots of pillows. The shower had one of those rods that curved outward so it felt nice and spacious, even though the bathroom itself was small (enough room for the shower and toilet). No complaints about the bathroom at all, though. It was all very clean. I could tell that […] the people who worked there were happy and it showed with how they kept their rooms. Customer service was amazing as well. They met me with a smile, always, and a genuine one at that! I would definitely recommend this place to any friend of mine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
