"Big disappointment, will not stay again."
Four reasons not to stay here. 1. Thin walls, you can hear your neighbors having a normal conversation. 2. This motel insists on having your rooms cleaned, no exceptions. Your Do Not Disturb sign will work for one day only. 3. No ice. 4. $20.00 damage deposit, and I still have not been credited for my refund.

"Clean and comfortable motel"
Great stay. Great price. I was very impressed. I wasn't expecting much in a small motel, but was pleasantly surprised. Nordic Motel was very clean and comfortable. And the price was unbeatable. I'll certainly stay there again on my next trip to Portland.

"Excellent value for your travel dollar!"
I have stayed at the Nordic twice now for weekend getaways, and have found it to be an excellent base for exploring the city. It's a quick 15-minute drive back to downtown, the Pearl, or other destination neighborhoods. I use the money I save by staying here (reasonable room rates, and no parking surcharge like the big hotels downtown) to eat well and shop, and that is a great trade-off as far as I'm concerned.

"Not your average Mom and Pop"
We have made a couple of long road trips, looking to stay in Mom and Pop motels. This one has to be at the top of the list. Nice sized room with thick towels. Including a coffee maker with the refrigerator and microwave would have rounded out the needed appliances. Good bed and great pillows. Quiet, even with a family arriving late and moving in next door. Lots of hot water. Thank you Nordic Motel for attention to detail!

Safe, tidy, clean. Unfortunately, the owners have identified the need to collect a damage deposit in addition to the prepaid rate. It is refunded if you don't damage the room, but a real hastle.

"Good, Basic Accommodations at a Great Price"
We travel to Portland a few times every year and were looking for a reliable, clean place to stay at a good price. I think we have found it in the Nordic Motel. It is located east of the airport on the old highway to Mt. Hood—not really convenient to any of the Portland hot spots like the Pearl District, but at about half the price of any other reliable place a little driving is worth it.

This room was great, clean and very comfortable. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The only downside to this place was it is a bit of a hike from downtown, but there is a bus stop right across the street, so it was pretty easy to get around.

"Clean, comfortable, convenient, not fancy"
Yes I could hear the train but it was not intrusive, less noisy than most street noise. The room was very clean and comfortable, on the small side, but that's fine with us. All essentials, fixtures, and furniture were newer, working and in very good condition. Lots of hot water and good water pressure in the shower, plenty of towels. The place is clearly cared for and well maintained. Staff were helpful and made us feel welcome. We would definitely stay there again.

"Excellent Portland gem"
This is a gem of a motel. One of the old Hwy 30 motor hotels of the 40s and 50s, it's been totally remodeled and upgraded. The room was clean and quiet. Hot water was hot and the shower was nice. Bed was very comfortable. Parking right outside the door. Room had a fridge and a microwave. And the wifi is secure! It's a close drive to about everywhere. I'd highly recommend the Alpine.

Pros: The owners were very personable (recommended the delicious Neuman's German cafe down the street), the room was very clean, nice to have a frig and microwave, TV and channels were entertaining, great rates, located near PDX, easy access to freeway... Cons: trains and neighbors in the next room were loud but tolerable for the price.

For the price you can't find a better hotel. Definitely not the most luxurious but I've paid twice as much for worse hotels. If your a light sleeper you may want to consider that there is train tracks very close by. Also, the shower has fantastic water pressure. Will definitely be going back.

"Easy access to highways and airport"
Very nice people at front desk. Room was very basic but very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable, I think temperapedic style mattress. There were foam pillows also but I always bring my own. There's coffee and tea in the small lobby. Refer and microwave in room for doggie bag leftovers. Only drawback is I know the guy next door snores, pretty thin walls and I'm glad I didn't have an. Obnoxious and/or loud neighbor either side. And of course it's only one level so no up or down neighbors. Bring your earplugs! Reasonable price, friendly and not fancy. My kind of place.

"Worst hotel experience EVER"
Desk clerk would not allow me to check in because I had a different last name from my husband, who had made the booking. She became irate and profane, and she would not let me talk to the manager. I had to leave and find other lodging. I also suspect some possible racial issues, as I am not a typical white American. The motel was nothing fancy, and the neighborhood was suspect. The manager later apologized, too late for that night.

This hotel was perfect for the purposes of my trip. I went to Portland to apply for jobs and look at apartments so I wasn't in the room much other than for sleeping. It is very close to the MAX which is crucial for someone without a car. There was a mini fridge and microwave which is awesome if you don't want to go out for every meal. There is also wifi. The owner if very sweet and made me feel comfortable and welcome.

"Lovely"
The Nordic Motel is a wonderful place to stay. I recommend, however, to get a room away from the road. I stayed in the room closest to the road and it was quite noisy- hard to sleep. I think being away from the road it would have been much better. The manager was lovely and the room was immaculate! I would stay there again for sure.

We stayed in the family room, which was very clean and comfortable. Beds and pillows afforded a good night's sleep. The owner is extremely friendly and attentive, and the exterior of the motel is very well maintained. The motel is close to the airport, especially to the off-site car rental agencies. Though it is not in the very best of neighborhoods, the area is okay and we felt safe here. Of all our accommodations during our vacation in Oregon, we liked this one the best and highly recommend it.

The Nordic Motel is an excellent value for Portland. The location is a bit out of the ordinary locations. You will need to drive to get downtown. The motel reminds me of the 50's and 60's motels. It is a modest motel and clean as a whistle. The owners are doing a fantastic job and everything is maintained well. I would stay there again when driving thru Portland.

We chose this motel because it had good reviews. This place is right next door to the train tracks and the train goes by tooting its horn all night. We were nervous about staying in this very seedy neighborhood and the pillows were rock hard. They felt like sleeping on sand bags. Skip this place and keep looking!

I stay here regularly. The price can't be beat, and the staff are beyond friendly. The rooms are truly clean, furnished in a bare-bones IKEA style. Great WiFi connection. It's pretty close to the airport, and 15-20 minutes from downtown Portland. Particularly useful if you're headed east, to the Columbia river Gorge or Mount Hood, or just want a change from inexpensive airport locations. Working fridge & microwave.
