I stayed here on two separate occasions when I took a new job offer from out-of-town and was looking for a permanent place to live. I was very happy with both of my stays, and would return if I needed a reasonably priced hotel with the basic amenities.
First, the staff is quite wonderful. I have dealt with three different people at the front desk so far, and they have been very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. It is very difficult to find consistently good customer service these days, but it's the norm here, and it's very refreshing.
Next, the rooms were very satisfactory. They are older, sure, and could use some work here and there. But, the sheets and towels were clean, I felt comfortable walking around barefoot, and the hotel itself is in a location where I felt very safe.
Lastly, the price was the best I could find in the Portland area. Considering that the rooms come with adequate kitchenettes, a nice laundry room, decent TVs, the location is good, etc., I could honestly not find a better deal.
If you normally frequent Hilton, Hyatt, or one of the other upscale chains, this might not be the place for you. But, if you are travelling on a budget and still want a decent place to sleep, this place is definitely worth considering.
Ask for a room as far away from 158th Avenue as possible, to avoid road noise.
