They are very respectful and helpful. They always made sure that everything was nice and neat

Great spot for the price!
The staff here was super friendly, our room was really small but did the job! Great for the price - they have free parking both on-site and an overflow lot a little ways away that we used. Our room had a fridge and TV which was nice and a private hallway bathroom which we didn't mind. Great spot if you want to be close to things in downtown and if you're only staying for a short trip!

We didn’t stay because the room was to small and only hade one bed for 4 people we asked for two Quinn beds but they didn’t have any

Nice spot
Clean and comfortable. Smallish room and the private bathroom was down the hall but that was okay. The staff was friendly and called me when I was a few minutes late to check out asking if I needed help with my bags. I had overslept so I was grateful for the wakeup call! Central Portland with a small free parking lot.

Charming hotel
I love this hotel! Its cost-effective and conveniently located. My only concern is that (since its an old building) it can be noisy from street sounds and/or other guests from time to time, but overall i enjoy staying here.
