“ABSOLUTELY IMPRESSED”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

From the outside Briarwood Suites did not look very appealing. In fact was sceptical about picking this place to spent the night. Did not have reservations but got a room on the first floor. Room was very clean, every piece of furniture looked new. Carpet was very clean, shower was super clean, in fact loved the seamless shower tub as no unsightly moldy grout. Bed was really comfortable..not too soft and not too hard. Hotel was located amongst houses in a residential area. Therefore extremely peaceful and quiet. Right next door to the hotel was a Chinese restaurant. Did not try it but according to owner, food was good and he ate there often. Very friendly person and he also recommended some good Indian Restaurants as we love Indian food. Definitely will pick this place to stay the next time we are in this area.

Room Tip: Wifi was good.

It all looked ok on the outside but as I went to my room it was very sub standard. The room smelled like dirty socks. Carpet had stains on it. I would not recommend this hotel. The hotel is very out dated with old televisions. No extra towels for showering. The bathroom doors paint was chipping off. The quilt had stains on it. The refrigerator did not work It was unplugged when I checked in I did plug it in and it did not cool a bit.

Room Tip: I would not recommend this hotel.

A little sub standard and according to my sister who lives in the area and there is a prostitution problem nearby. So when my cousin came in late from a bachelor party, our hotel phone rang within 7 seconds of him entering the room. I thought I had booked a double occupancy, but apparently I had not. He was an UNREGISTERed guest according to the guy on the phone and he even told my cousin he was trespassing. My cousin went to the office and paid a 15 dollar fee so that he could just get some rest. Now I am just about the most law abiding normal non prostitute type person around and my cousin is also All American looking. Shouldn't judge a book by it's cover I know, but darn, it was a bit extreme. Big brother is definitely watching. They have video cams everywhere, which is kind of good, but after this incident it made me wonder why. Are all the cams because of crime? Anyway, this was my first night there and due to a packed schedule for a wedding, moving hotels wasn't an option. I felt awkward after this incident and even the next day the staff at the front desk was all over me about getting my license plate, even though I already filled out a card with make, model etc... And I always parked right near lobby so they could obviously see it was my car. Would not stay again. Going back to Portland in April. Will find another place to stay.

An older motel with large rooms located away from most major attractions. The room was comfortable, but many small things were in need of attention as the place was showing a lot of wear and tear. At least it was quiet, unlike many of the similarly priced offerings near the airport.

The place is fairly clean and has the infrastructure of a good room layout, however, it is worn and broken down. The refrigerator and microwave did not work... no matter what I was told to do. The towels I finally got were still wet. The internet was up and down and could not be stabalized. The door had been busted in and was only barely tacked back in place. While I was pleased that the place was quiet, the neighborhood is very mixed and the street is a rather busy. I felt safe, but I wouldn't walk the neighborhood at night. I had numerous family members trying to use this place as a home base for a funeral. A couple of the high-end family members simply didn't check in. While the reservation staff were VERY helpful, the owner wanted to charge for a one hour late checkout, despite the fact I had brought 7 families to stay there. Ridiculous!

Room Tip: Don't get the rooms at the top of the stairs.

The big Boss Nich(Nick) is a hard working but great character. Teresa is amazingly sweet n informative. Ray is very handy n patient n Fabricio is a master of grave-yard shift. I feel that this short stay in Briarwood Suites is going to last LONG~!
