So I researched inexpensive places to stay in NE Portland, as my dad was in the hospital there, and I knew I may be there up to a week, so I couldn't afford anything fancy for that long. I came across website for Nordic Motel. Looking at the pics of it on website, I thought it looked ideal and I was surprised because the rooms were even better than what the internet depicted. They had recently been remodeled, new paint, appliances, everything! We had a two- bed room with kitchenette, and the other bed was in it's own room! Each bed had a huge flat screen t.v. pointed right at it, there were big dressers and many cabinets to put away your personal stuff, and a small dinette set. It was perfect. The regular sized refrigerator helped us save on dining out, as I stocked it with food that I had brought. The outside of the buildings were well lit and the motel is fenced except for the entrance. Although you can hear the planes (airport is fairly close) and you can hear the tire shop next door (can't hear it with the t.v. on, and they closed at 5) I never heard the people in the next rooms. Now, the location is fantastic, near airport and hospital, but the neighborhood looked a little rough. However, there were folks of all kinds staying at the motel, and very good restaurants in the area and we had no problems. I really really liked this place. BUT bring your own instant coffee or you can get it in motel lobby. There isn't java maker in the room-I came prepared because I am a spoiled Washatonian hooked on Starbucks. haha!
