We booked this hotel because it had the least expensive room available in the Portland airport area for the night we needed a room. We weren't looking for anything fancy - just clean and with a comfortable bed. And the hotel came through in that regard. Compared to the nearby HoJo that we've also stayed in at comparable rates, this Ramada was a little nicer in physical facilities. The front desk staff were wonderful - friendly and fast, both at check in and check out.
The in-room wi-fi is free (yeah!), but seemed a little slow. We appreciated the coffee maker with real ceramic mugs (instead of plastic cups), microwave and bathtub (not just shower stall). Also liked that there were reading lights on both sides of the bed (too many hotels have a light only on one side).
Recommendation: bring ear plugs. This hotel was built before many of it's genre used good sound-proofing insulation, so you might hear the neighbors. More importantly, the heating/AC/ventilation unit was rather noisy and kept cycling on and off all night trying to maintain the temperature. This might not be a problem most nights but we were there on a cold winter night and there weren't enough blankets on the bed to keep warm without turning up the heat.
On the plus side, there was a desk to work at and a convenient power strip to plug in computer, battery chargers, etc.
Yes, the decor is a bit dated, but what do you expect when you're looking for budget deals? More important is cleanliness and everything in good working condition, and in those regards this hotel did just fine.
