This hotel is only 5-8 minutes away from Portland, OR, and conveniently located off the freeway exit. A group of families stayed here while visiting Portland. We used the breakfast/great room as a hangout place to eat dinner we brought in, watch TV and play board games. We helped ourselves to the complimentary coffee, tea and apple cider throughout the day. The great room is converted to a breakfast area in the morning for complimentary hot breakfast. We love the pancake machine which by the press of a button, it pops out a small pancake in several minutes. It makes perfect size pancakes. Hot breakfast also includes but not limited to: biscuit & gravy, muffins, toast, boiled eggs, egg with melted cheese, yogurt, milk & cereal, bacon, sausages, juices, fruit. The female staff tending this busy area was very fast and tidy. She was always on the go to ensure food was replenished, counter and food trays were clean, and trash was removed before it overfilled. Only drawback is that they use styrofoam plates and disposable utensils which are not environmentally friendly.
Please consider tipping dedicated hotel staff for they only make minimum wage or less, and we wouldn't have a relaxing stay if it weren't for their hard work.
Rooms and hallways are very new and clean. Standard 2 queen bed rooms are roomy, and the beds were comfortable. I wish the vanity sink was located outside the bathroom for convenience though. The pool and jacuzzi were a big hit with the kids.
Only complaint is the elevator. Small, narrow hallway to the elevator doesn't allow guests or staff to squeeze through.
