If you want an inexpensive place near the highway and airport that is clean and has a comfortable bed, this is a good bet. We were only going to be staying in this particular area a couple days and would be gone all day long until late so we really didn't care about a lot of amenities.

It's nice that they have a small refrigerator and microwave and a DVD player for you to use. Bummer you have to go to the lobby to get a free cup of coffee, though.

With that said it is still a motel. The bathroom is tiny. The walls are thin. You will hear traffic noise and if you have a loud neighbor you will hear them, too (luckily we only had to listen to one loud phone conversation our neighbor had).

This motel was surprisingly clean and well maintained. The staff was very helpful and polite. The room was immaculate and smelled wonderful. The bathroom was clean and the towels were soft and smelled clean. The bed was soft, comfortable, and had tempurpedic-ish pillows. There was also a great restaurant / brewery (bistro 23) within a mile. The coffee in the little lobby was great too. Overall, the best motel I have ever stayed at.

was at this motel last week we stayed for two nights. clean and well maintained motel. except for the carpet everything else looked new and updated, even the windows are new. bed was very comfortable, we had a good night sleep :) Vanity is separate from bathroom which is a plus for us. just be careful, our vanity faucet hot and cold are swapped. they have free WiFi, parking and complimentary coffee/tea in the lobby.
over all a great place to stay.

We travel mostly on a low budget. I had read the reviews about this motel but until I experienced it myself, it was hard to believe how great it was at such a reasonable price. This was the first time in ten years that the mattress and pillow were wonderful and we didn't wake up needing a chiropractor! Full kitchen, roomy, good A/C, and extremely clean. We will be back for sure!

Room Tip: Book via the motel, not online.

Nordic Motel does it right. Clean comfortable, well planned rooms at good price. Well managed. Easy to get room and good service. Not luxurious, but comfortable. Great value. Stayed on two different occasions.

Just spent a night here and felt compelled to review. This is a fantastic little motel that is in an unusual spot. While not right downtown it is easily accessed from the highway in the eastern part of town. I don't think i have ever stayed in a cleaner room with so much attention to detail. Everything is new and top notch. The tv was a large samsung with a ton of channels. The bed and linens felt new and high quality. The owner is on site and very attentive. The security made us very comfortable which was paramount sin e my wife and i were on motorcycles and i am nervous about where i park. All in all a very pleasant stay. I would gladly return again.

The Nordic might be in a less trendy area of Portland. However, compared to what is located nearby, it is easily one of the best values in Portland. Book via the hotel - room options are better that way and given the price of the rooms you will certainly get more for your dollar.

Room was very large with full kitchen and fridge. Bathroom was clean and had good water pressure. Wifi worked fine.

It is relatively easy by car to get to all the sights one would wish to see around Portland and, given the savings vs. many areas in downtown Portland, you won't mind burning a bit of gas. Front desk help and owners were very kind - coffee and tea are available in the morning. Coming from the Philadelphia region, we were pleasantly surprised to see so much value. Budget travelers should certainly consider staying here. Highly recommend.
