Portland International Guesthouse is a great option for those not looking to spend a lot on accommodation in Portland, but who also want a nice place to stay. The Guesthouse is very clean, the shared bathrooms are in excellent condition, and rooms are comfortable. There is a nice outdoor patio on the second floor--a great place to enjoy a beer in the late afternoon. The location is superb, many places offering food and entertainment within walking distance. Trader Joe's is right around the corner, too, which is nice if you want to skip eating out. The only drawback is parking. It's a difficult neighborhood to find a parking spot. That was the only negative discovered, but would not keep me from staying there again next time I'm in Portland.
