“Upgraded”
Reviewed 25 November 2012

The Best Western Inn at the Meadows has upgraded several features over the past few years. The beds and bedding are the foundation upgrade for me. The breakfast is a true hot breakfast with eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy. I enjoyed the spa which is a large and outdoors (not a pool) and open even in November. Andrew at he front desk was friendly and knowledgeable. This hotel does not have a restaurant, but Shari's next door is open 24 hours. This hotel is convenient toI-5, theTriMet Yellow line, the airport and Portland Meadows. They have an airport shuttle.

One negative...the internet signal is weak and drops (11mps is the top strength).

Hello DMcClureDVM,

Thank you for your comments on our upgrades and amenities. Yes, we are in walking distance to the Delta Park Max stop and do provide a scheduled PDX shuttle from 5am-11pm. We just recently upgraded our Wifi network that can handle all types of Wifi devices such as Laptops, Smart phones, Apple products, etc., any video sites, like Youtube, and VPN networks. We have 146 rooms, therefore need to have a limit on the Internet bandwidth, but made sure, everyone will have enough Internet bandwidth to be extremely satisfied with the speeds and connection and most importantly to be able to complete any tasks that are needed for the Wifi. We thank you again for all the kind comments and hope to you see soon!

We stayed there when our flight was delayed. Location is convenient to the train station, and they have a free shuttle to the airport. Decor is a bit tired, but the rooms are comfortable. The staff is great! They really know the area and coached us through getting the train, places to eat, and things to do. They even took us to the train station so we didn't have to deal with the cold rain with our baggage,

We are happy to hear that your stay with us went great and that the front desk staff was able to provide great service. We feel this is something that sets us apart from other hotels in the area. We have since upgraded the decor in all the rooms and in the lobby. This renovation really improves on the ambiance of the hotel and makes everyone feel welcomed.

Beds really suck! Musty smell, waking up to sounds of construction at oh dark thirty adds to lack of sleep. Very clean and good service from the front desk.
Did not stay for their breakfast. Sharis and Elmers within a very short walking distance. Easy access to the interstate a plus.

We chose this motel because I found it offered free round-trip transportation to the Amtrak rail station in downtown Portland, which we needed for an early departure, and for our arrival back in Portland the following night. We also wanted to leave the car overnight, during our short train trip, at a place other than a public carpark near the station. We had suitcases inside. The person over the phone when we made the reservation was exceedingly helpful, and said that we could leave the car in the motel lot with no charge until we returned (one night). Because they were so helpful, we wound up booking a second night at the motel too, for after our train ride.

The accommodations were fine, we liked the firm bed, and the breakfast was good.

I noticed that another person, checking in at the desk when we arrived, had some trouble that we did not (but could have had). That is, the motel has only two shuttle buses and this person needed a morning shuttle to the airport. All of their scheduled rides were full, so the person had to arrange for a fairly expensive ride with private car company or taxi service. The lesson: if you stay here expecting free airport or train station transport, ask for the shuttle schedule in advance and BOOK your shuttle trip when you book your motel room.

One more thing: there aren't a lot of nice restaurants in the area. But the motel is pretty much next door to two decent chain operations that are open very early and very late.

I am glad that everything went good with your stay and your shuttle service. Thank you for letting all future guest know about pre-scheduling all shuttles. Since we are about 20 minutes from both the airport and Amtrak we always want the shuttles scheduled at least 24 hours in advance to avoid any potential conflicts with other shuttles. Thanks again and we hope to see you next time you take the train into Portland.

Great loction for the Conference Center and access to the light rail station and a very nice hotel.
The staff was helpful and the break was very tasty. Having access to the hotel van helped because we had spent a very long day at the quilt show.

Room Tip: Top floor.

We are happy to hear that both your stay and the Quilting show went great. We always love to have the quilters stay with us. You are a very considerate and kind group of people. I will pass on your praise to both the front desk staff and the breakfast workers. We hope to see you at next year’s show.

Stayed three nights and loved everything about this motel. The staff was very helpful and friendly.
The room was very clean. The breakfast bar is perfect. Hot breakfast with eggs, sausage. potatoes and waffles. Also, a fruit bar with real orange juice(Not watered down). One block from the Tri Met rail. We had no problems with the internet service. We will stay here again.

My girlfriend and I visit Portland every month or so and we've stayed here twice. The decor and hotel is not bad. The reason we won't go back is because of the service and comfort of the bed. The bed is very firm and has no give. The service people are a hit and miss. One lady during check in looked at us three distinct times till she finally came to the counter to ask if we needed help. DUH!! I'm standing at the counter for my health! The wireless is slow and crap. Overall just a bad experience. This was try two and the first time wasn't any different.

I am sorry for the problems you had with both the front desk and the wireless. We have since fired the person who you had a problem with. Our new staff members would never do this and apologize for her actions. The wireless has also been fixed. We worked with the city to get new internet lines run to this area. Previous speeds were pretty much a joke but now we have a 1gb/sec line run into the hotel. Since the upgrade we have not had any issues with the wireless. We hope to see you soon and you can see all of our improvement.
