“Ok but very unprofessional”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Thank you to the staff who changed my $10 so I could take the TriMet.
Did not appreciate being called "pretty girl like you" in nearly every sentence as I was checking in. If this happened on the streets I could walk away. This seems too much to stomach even for a hotel this affordable. Extremely uncomfortable experience.
Otherwise, everything was good enough for a brief overnight stay.

We needed a place to stay overnight en route from Seattle to Ashland - a quiet place, near I-5 but enough away to escape freeway noise, with a comfortable king size bed, a bath, a microwave; not expensive. East side absolutely fit the bill. Would have been even better if they provided breakfast, but then one can't have everything, can one?

We spent three nights at Eastside Lodge. Summary: superb location. First plan was to stay downtown, but the hotels there were either bad or expensive so we looked a bit farther. Eastside ended up being way more awesome the downtown, with all the little restaurants and pubs. There are also a number of more interesting shops there, definitely worth investigating. Downtown is a 20 minute walk away, so you can pretty much walk all over town. Motel itself is very basic and oldish, but clean and well kept. There is no breakfast, but cafes nearby cover that perfectly. It did get a bit noisy at weekend nights, due to people coming and going cheerfully, but nothing too bad. Recommended if you want a great location to sleep in at sensible price.

We rented this hotel room as we were attending my daughters graduation and she lives nearby. When we walked into the room, it felt as if we were back in the 50's. The room needed some serious upgrading. The room was clean, though my husband said he could feel the mattress springs when he was laying down. I didn't notice. I thought we might be disturbed by music and noise from the Karaoke bar on the other side of the property. Never heard it. Great coffee shop within walking distance and other places nearby. It was nice that there was a refrigerator and microwave, but overall the room looked as if it needed new carpets, new paint, etc., but you get what you pay for, and we wanted to stay close to where my daughter lives.

perfect? NO. but perfectly acceptable? YES. from airport, MAX to lightrail, and you walk only 3 blocks. on Burnside which takes you into downtown within a 15 minute walk, or Lightrail (3 block walk) where you can go anywhere. I didnt like Portland, but the hotel had nothing to do with it. If you need a clean, safe, affordable "motel" that has an amazing location, this is it. The bed seemed comfortable, included a fridge, and room was large enough to offer a relaxing experience. No outside noise at all. No hotel/motel in Portland is in a perfect location, but this was close enough to it all to make your stay hopefully enjoyable. Side advice, rent a bike at Douglas Fir and bike the Willamette River Loop, and the next day, go to Multnomah Falls and MT HOOD Loop. Couple amazing experiences

Room Tip: rent a bike at Douglas Fir and bike the Willamette River Loop, and the next day, go to MT HOOD and
