“Fantastic Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

On my recent trip to Portland, I booked this hotel after researching online. If you are looking for a place to stay and don't need a continental breakfast or fitness room, this may be the place for you. It was very clean and very affordable. The location is convenient to restaurants, grocery stores, and transportation. Room had a small fridge and microwave. I will definitely stay again on my next trip to Portland.

It's a no-frills motel but it was clean and relatively comfortable. The rooms have window AC units which run a but loud but got the room nice and cold. The bed was not the most comfortable ever, but it was in good shape and we slept fine. I never noticed any road noise or sounds from adjacent rooms, which was nice. The motel is super affordable and right next to public transport and a great coffee shop.

This place is a real find. Wonderfully located in the center of town, right on the light rail line that allows travel everywhere, and just down the street from a fabulous market that has delights aplenty - I cannot say enough good about this place. GREAT staff, friendly and very informatiive. Wonderful clean BIG rooms. THis place is a real gem in the Portland area. LGBT friendly too!

Just ended a wonderful week-long stay with my wife and 2 children. Dave, Brian, and Hari were great hosts. Location is excellent, just across the street from Max station and wonderful grocery store. Room is comfortable for a family, we'll maintained, clean, everything we needed. Would definitely stay again. Thank you guys!!

After reading the reviews on this place we decided to give it a try. We weren't disappointed! The owner was lovely and super helpful, the room was simple but clean. And the location was great. It is right on the Max light rail line. There's a nice market and coffee shop within a block. The neighbor felt safe and welcoming. We would definitely stay again. Thanks Viking Motel!

I know the title tells you the five most important things about the hotel. The staff was so helpful telling how to get around, where to pick up food etc. The room was clean and utilitarian (fridge in the room was a bonus). The price is great. And there are restaurants, grocery store and a MAX (tram) stop within half a block (two blocks away was a bowling alley which was also fun). There are lots of motels in Portland, this is the only one that had the no vacancy sign on every day I was there - folks know it is great so get reservations.
