I was skeptical b/c I usually stick with chains I've had good experiences with, but when our flight arrival was delayed until the early morning hours, I decided to take a chance on the Nordic Inn. It was awesome! So clean, the bed was extremely comfortable, the desk clerk was so pleasant, and they even offered to push check out back since we arrived […] so late. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Quality motel for reasonable price"
This motel lived up to the great reviews. The motel was nicely renovated with excellent beds. The service was great and the rooms were very clean!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gem in the rough."
We were following our GPS to the motel when the neighborhood turned a little rough and the voice said you have reached your destination. The motel did not have the standard chain look, but a clean older appearance. When we got into our room we quite pleased to find a nice appearing clean room. The room was very quite for being so close to the airport. […] If you are looking for a good deal this is the place to stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place, but my room hella noisy"
Clean, well equipped smallish room. DO NOT STAY in room 25. RIGHT, I mean RIGHT next to (10 feet) from very busy street and train tracks. Had to crank fan on full to drown out street/train noise. Needed close to airport so good location for that. Decent wi-fi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect on the go stay"
Great proprietors, loved the key cards, the pillows, comfortable bed, large fridge, HD channels with HBO and Showtime, these guys know what is important and provide.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel and staff but minimal good eating options close by.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Why can't my real home be like this?!"
Every person who likes simple accommodations should aspire to have a master bdrm like this. Just enough space to make it feel like home. Clean beyond clean. I appreciate the care they take to keeping this place tidy and neat. However, just a glitch (major/minor depending on your temperament) I noticed was the squeaky floor near the bathroom which I […] frequented a lot due to my partaking often in the pristine pdx h2o, and locally brewed ales. This was kindly explained by the gentleman at the front desk that the floors were recently installed as part of a major renovation that took place earlier this year. It also explains the noisy neighbors bcuz of thin walls, which is a frequent complaint of most modern construction (future contractors: fix that!). Thus, it really was a home away from home. It's a two star motel, so this was minor compared to other places I have patronized in the past. Free coffee in the morning more than makes up for shortcomings, but you may want to check out the coffee stand across Sandy Bl. I'll just say it is interesting and leave it at that. Overall, a great stay for anyone on a budget. Spot on. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice to stay."
Reasonable rate, good for Families with children, has a stove to prepare hot breakfast or dinner.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent for what it is"
I stayed in the hotel before a flight back home and I was very impressed with the facility. The room was large, updated, and clean. The staff was very polite and helpful in checking me in. The location gets a lower rating because it is close to the airport abd you can hear the planes; however, I knew that going into it. The room was inexpensive and […] I would recommend it for anyone that needs an overnight room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice surprise"
Very pleased for the price. Very clean and recently updated. This motel is a gem.Genuine Expedia guest review
"super clean but still a motel"
Nordic is locaed in a pretty weirdarea of Portland. It I noteasy to find it. But it is very clean inside and outside. Rooms are small but bathrooms are very spacious and extremely clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to terminal, clean & quiet"
For the price you cannot really beat it if you want to be close to the airport. The room was clean, no odor and the mattress was comfy. The room was well insulated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice motel"
Our experience at the Nordic Motel lived up to the many positive reviews it has received. Our room with one queen bed was very clean and appeared to have been refurbished recently. All the furnishings were like new, including the television and the refrigerator. The bed was very comfortable. The owner was very helpful in arranging a taxi to the airport. […] We are a retired couple who are always in search of affordable, clean, comfortable lodging when we travel. The Nordic Motel exceeded our expectations. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean but the carpets had just been replaced and the room smelled like....new carpet. Yuk. The blanket on the bed needed to be replaced as it was shedding fluff balls. This hotel is located right next to the train tracks, not a problem for me as I love the sounds trains make. However, if you don't like […] trains, you might consider staying at a different hotel. All in all, I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean place, slightly over priced..."
The room was clean, actually better than expected. It did however look as though there were long term tenants in the facility which is highly trashy in my opinion. I don't feel this place was worth the money I spent, but it was otherwise satisfactory in a last minute pinch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed in Portland and were sceptical about staying at a motel but we were surprised to find that our room was completely remodeled and cery clean. The staff were all very friendly, as well. They even upgraded us to a suite with a kitchen since we were staying multiple nights.Genuine Expedia guest review

Awesome hotel...near airport and easy access to the eclectic parts of Portland. Management was very courteous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice and clean!"
So nice, we decided to stay longer and were fortunate the only room left was the one we were in. The suite is very clean, the beds are comfortable, and even the pillows are nice and I'm very particular when it comes to beds and pillows. Plus the staff was very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
The bed was very comfortable, and we recvd good service. Staff was courteous and very accommodating! I didn't care much for the location, but it wasn't too bad. I think the rates were very fair.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nicely renovated motel"
Very pleased. A lot of expense and thought went into re-do of rooms, parking lot and landscaping. Careful attention to detail and nice quality fixtures and finishes. Comfortable, clean, excellent condition (and coffee) and value. My husband could not find anything to be critical of! Owner very friendly and should be proud.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place for the price"
We were looking for a place to stay near the airport because my flight got in at 2 am. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My boyfriend left the parking lights on, and the front desk employee called to let us know. The room was very clean, and the bathroom was spotless. I loved the shower pressure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice staff and clean room"
The Nordic Motel for one night. The front desk staff is a nice family who is very friendly and courteous. The room was small and it came equipped with a flat screen TV, small fridge, a microwave and a small table for two. The room inside was not light enough as I would have liked it to be, but it was okay because I was just there for 1 night. The bathroom […] was pretty large, very well lit, ventilated and clean -- it also had a hair dryer. The bed was comfortable, warm and clean. The room didn't have an iron or board so I asked the front desk if I could borrow one and they kindly did. My cab came to pick me up the next morning (driver knocked on my door), the front desk manager (owner) called my room to make sure I had requested one and was not just a random person knocking. I checked out without any problems. The only thing that bothered me was the noise. (I am a very sensitive person to sound so this was huge deal for me!) When I checked in they were cleaning the parking lot and they were trimming the front trees close to my room, so it was very noisy!!! I literally had to wear earplugs to block off the sound. I had room #25 which was the first one facing the main street (NE Sandy Dr.). There were many cars passing by and my room was still noisy. There is a railroad in front of Nordic hotel and trains passing by also were noisy. When I went off to bed I had to wear my ear plugs and I had a good nights sleep. If you stay at the Nordic, try to get a room not close to Sandy Dr. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Trains are noisy. Location was a bit out of the way if you have a lot of business downtown. But the motel was clean and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent choice, my dear"
I needed aplace to stay overnight before catching a flight out of Portlandia. Expedia gave this place pretty good reviews, so I thought I would check it out. It was a Thursday night, so the place wasn't packed, but it was busy. The first thing that I noticed was that the exterior of the buildings and the grounds were very well maintained. The hotelier […] seemed to space the guests so the occupied rooms weren't all next to one another. Walk inside the room, and it was virtually spotless. Everything was so clean and orderly, I almost felt guilty for using the room. Room was quiet, felt safe and secure. I hope this place succeeds, and maybe inspires other hoteliers to raise their standards. The Nordic certainly sets a very high standard for a room at these rates.

"Quick Stay in Portland"
All in all, this motel met my overnight needs after flying in to the Portland International Airport. The facility appeared well kept and maintained; parking was a bit tight; access was easy; and the price was right. The room was clean; nicely appointed, although rather spartan; the bed was comfortable; and the entertainment choices on the TV were adequate. […] Service was friendly and helpful, although their check-in process is antiquated. One thing I didn't like was the need to charge my credit card for a cleaning deposit, which would be refunded after the room was supposedly vacated at check-out. I never had that happen before, and although I am used to credit cards being swiped for incidentals, I never had it charged for a "possible" cleaning fee. I came away feeling that the innkeepers were not that interested in how their facility is perceived by customers. I am surprised by the previous ratings it had received, and will probably not use this motel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, Friendly and slightly more comfortable."
The facility is clean with a room that looked and felt clean when I walked in. The bed was only slightly more comfortable that other 2 - 3 star motels, but at least it wasn't a sheet covered piece of plywood. The management was friendly and did repeatedly offer drinks ( coffee ). The facility is on a busy street, so it is quieter than those on or next […] to a highway.

"Good stay little noisy"
I loved the service. They were so nice. Number 25 is a little too close to the train thoughGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Top value for Location"
This motel fills a useful niche near the airport and in North Portland. The rooms are small but comfortable, and the housekeeping is very good. The management keeps the property in top condition by having good common sense regulations, that discourage abuse of the rooms. Good business lodgings, and good value for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Exceptional value for price. I stayed here for a full week and was very pleased. The rooms as well as the property are very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for what I wanted"
The room had the best mattress I have slept on in years when I have been away from home. It was easy to find and close to where I needed to go. The owners were present and were delightful. i will go to this hotel again when I am in Portland. I am happy to find a place that is quiet and comfortable for a great price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Low-rent motel, clean and friendly"
This is a very low-rent motel on a busy street, but it is clean, quiet, friendly and although it doesn't look like much from the outside, it was fine and the staff was very helpful. I would have liked a coffee pot in the room but liked the coffee they served in the front office.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Older than I thought it would be!"
The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable, but everything needed to be updated. The woman at the front desk was very nice and helpful. They do require a $20 deposit for damage! It was refunded the next morning, without anyone looking at the room, but it was just another thing to do in the AM when I wanted to get going!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel oweners very nice and generous. They even shared some of their home cooked dinner (Indian cuisine) with us!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great and inexpensive place to stay in Portland"
I always like to find value rated places that are a good place to stay. Most of the time though there is something wrong. Dirty or old rooms, bad service, no hot water, broken fixtures. I was looking forward to staying at the Nordic after reading the reviews and I wasn't disappointed. Clean rooms, nothing broken or worn down, well maintained, nice staff. […] This is a great place to stay close to Portland, the Grotto, airport, shopping, a trip up the Gorge and more. I will be staying here again on a future trip. And they also have 2 bed units with a kitchen. Great for the family that wants to save on money and cook a few meals of their own. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
One big problem: the walls between rooms is so thin you can almost everything. Glad I had my ear plugs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We came in when it was cold out and late to boot. They already had the heater on and wasn't super hot so it was great. The front desk was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and cozy...smaller but worked just great for our one night. Super close to the airport but quiet at the same time. Will definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall the hotel was very well kept, and included nice, new appliances. My biggest complaint was that the whiles were somewhat thin, and we could hear our neighbors through the walls. Other than that, the hotel staff was pleasant, and the hotel itself was located in a decent area.Genuine Expedia guest review
