La Quinta Inn & Suites Portland
Ranked #15 of 21 Hotels in Portland
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Downtown Portland hotels were pricer than we wanted to spend and we typically like La Quinta hotels so we stayed here. The location was only ten minutes from downtown but the building needs updating inside and out. The lobby was dirty upon arrival but better in the morning. The staff was friendly and the room was very clean. The beds & pillows were very comfortable.

The hotel was very current and clean, very comfortable. The parking lot flooded in a rapid downpour, as did the first floor. Everything was managed well and with empathy. Still I was happy to be able to leave in my still working vehicle.

We booked late, and ended up in this 2.5 star rated hotel.
We were a little apprehensive, as we had usually stayed at 4 star average locations.
As the title says, we were very pleasantly surprised. Its a good hotel overall, very good in our experience.
Rooms are large, clean and have what anyone needs. Any traveller expects a clean, comfortable bed, check; clean bed linen, check; clean bathroom, check; bath towels, hand towels, face towels, check. What you wont find are luxurious towels; 4 ply toilet paper; large soaps and shampoos; you will find adequate supplies, replenished every day by very friendly staff. I believe many of the less than great reviews are by people whose expectations are 4 star expectations.
Its location is good for driving into downtown Portland (5 minutes max); and its right off the highway.

Room Tip: No room seems to be a lot better than another

Stayed here for one night before a race. The staff was really helpful and the room was clean. Pretty expensive for the quality, but that was to be expected during this event weekend. Continental breakfast was not so good. In the end, good basic accommodation for one night, but nothing I would get for a special event (anniversary, etc).

The staff was extremely friendly and informative of the area. Location is about two miles from downtown. Nice walk to downtown area, with just a short stint of a questionable neighborhood. Got a cab back to the hotel for under $10. Worth staying at for the significantly lower price than a downtown hotel. Breakfast selections were minimal, but expected for a continental breakfast.

Overall good basic accommodations, but bed was not comfortable, old sagging mattress. Price of up to $200/night would expect a higher quality room. Site location was a bit off from downtown Portland, but came with car and was able to drive back and forth fine.

We stayed in this hotel for one night. The first thing we had to do was to ask for another room because someone had clearly smoked in the room we were assigned. In general the hallways and rooms all smell very strongly and not in a good way. The hotel is a bit dated, seems to be poorly maintained and looks dark and tired. The hinges of our room door were all rusty, the bathroom is very small and the were dark lines in the bathtub from a bathmat that was once inside it. The water did not run off properly, so when taking a shower you stand in water that touches the shower curtain and soaks up who knows what. There were two bars of soap and one tiny bottle of shampoo, but there was no conditioner and shower cap. The whole shower experience is very unpleasant. The plaster on the ceiling had been patched up and the breakfast in the morning is terrible. Only white bread, small dry muffins and yoghurt is offered. There is no fruit, anything warm, or quality bread and pastries. Dishes are plastic only and generate massive amounts of garbage. The breakfast room is also very tiny with lots of tables in it, so one feels confined. All in all, we were happy to get out of there as quickly as possible, and we feel that 200 dollars per night for what is offered is way too much money and a rip off people should not accept.
