The place is a bit worn and many areas need a makeover. Great location on light rail line. Not much of a bar or dinning but food and people were friendly. Great complementary breakfast. Car rental on site. Noisy area near freeway.More

Thank you for your feedback. I do apologize that our outdoor pool was not accessible as the weather has not been nice enough to open it. We hope that you come back once it is and also check out the renovations we have been doing.

I think it might be owned by Portland State University. It's an old property and dated (60s/70s era) but clean and tidy. All staff were helpful and pleasant. Breakfast is included and hot buffet and usual continental choices - pretty decent spread. The bar/restaurant is...More

We went to a couple of places on SW Montgomery St, very near to the waterfront: Portland Sports Bar and Grill, and McCormick & Schmick's Harborside at the Marina. Both were easy walking distance of the Hotel.
