We were in Portland on business with Portland State University and this property happens to be owned by that school. Located on campus it is close to the museum and block parks, has easy access to public transit and is within walking distance of a really nice section of downtown Portland.
Our room was lovely. Overlooking the courtyard and pool, it was well appointed and clean. Though obviously not new, it is suitable for any traveler(s) looking for a good value in a terrific location on campus. It is close to affordable restaurants and the outdoor pool area makes it a great choice for families with children. Of course, understand that this is a school campus so there may be college students present. Typically that could mean noise issues - but we did not encounter any problems on that level - even after passing half of a football team in the hall. The staff was helpful and friendly.
