    Mediocre stay at this hotel
    My husband and I needed to get away for a peaceful weekend and wanted to stay near downtown Portland. The location is very close to downtown Portland, so that was good. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. There were some renovations going on which wasn't very visually appealing, but didn't disrupt our stay at all. The pool and hot tub were what we were the most excited about and were the reason we chose this hotel but there were about 15 kids there morning, afternoon and night, so we didn't get to partake (I understand this wasn't the hotel's fault, but there are a few families with several kids that visit every year at the same time so I wish we would have known.)

    The hotel is under construction currently so a face lift is happening! Overall, I really like this hotel. I stayed in 2013 and got a room on the 1st floor that had that type of air that hurts your eyes. I asked to be moved and they obliged. They moved me to a business room and it was like I was in a whole different hotel. From then out I’ve had a great stay everyone I stay!! Parking is ample and easy, the beds are really comfortable, the price is always reasonable, it’s next door to a gas station and it’s a quick ride/drive down to commercial street.
