I only stayed at this motel one night to attend a class that started early in the morning. Arriving late afternoon, I had some questions about directions to my class the next day as well as dinner recommendations. I was quickly presented with a map along with directions to my class. I was also happy to learn that halfway across the street (ie, on an island in the middle of the street) was a stop for a streetcar that went directly to and around the Pearl District, which had many dinner choices. Fare for a 2-hr ticket is $1 and there are various options for all-day passes and transfers to other transit routes. If you have the time it's certainly possible to walk to the Pearl District from the hotel, however the streetcar delivered me to the district quickly, leaving plenty of time to walk around, check out restaurants and shops, and return home on the same $1 ticket. Note that you can either buy your streetcar ticket from a machine on the street with credit/debit card or onboard the streetcar using cash/coin (probably cc/dc too--not sure?). If you are returning via streetcar, be sure to board the correct line (C-line) as there is another line (N-S) that uses the same tracks in the Pearl District. One other plus was that the proprietors let me park my car for free the entire next day, after I checked out, while I attended class. Also, contrary to another traveler, I found the wifi connection excellent and used it quite a bit to download software for the class I attended. Although the motel could have been fancier, it couldn't have been more convenient for the purposes of my stay. (PS, Alas, Portland abolished the free ride zone on its transit Sept 2012.)

Attended a conference in Portland last week and wanted a hotel near the convention center, with breakfast, that fit my budget. I wasn't expecting luxury for my 4 nights at the Econo Lodge, but good grief. The lobby is large enough for one person and their luggage. The "breakfast" is set up in a corner of the lobby--pot of coffee, jug of orange juice and your choice of a frosted packaged pastry or . . . a frosted packaged pastry. No variation, food to be eaten in your room. One coffee pod in your room per day. My roommate and I repeatedly had our keys re-keyed as they did not operate the door when we came home, with never an apology. The proprietor refused to allow my roommate to check out early (since she had a 6am flight the next day) and pay her part of the bill. Since the reservation was made with my credit card, that was all he would accept for payment. On the plus side, the room was clean and the streetcar (only stops every half hour) picks up directly across the street. Wish I had a better report for $110 a night.

Stayed here for about a week here around labor day of 2012. Although not luxurious, the rooms were super clean and the owner was very friendly and conscientious. The rooms was very spacious also. They have free parking too and I never had trouble finding a space. The main downside was that if you plan to walk to anywhere except the Rose Garden or the Convention Center, it's a pretty long walk. They did just open a streetcar system that runs right in front of the property though. It's located right next to a pretty busy road also and my wife thought it was a little noisy at night but I didn't think so.

One thin blanket with a huge hole in it, Cold room, Internet not working, traffic noise, shoddy steps and furnishings, no plug for bath. Breakfast- horrid packaged pastries one might find in a vending machine. Pretty bad. On the plus side, the maid did a great job , it seemed very clean and the location is great for walking to the pearl district. I would not stay here again. The desk guy , a most unpleasant character.

We booked in with some trepidation, as we weren't sure that a hotel this close to the city centre would be quiet, but it turned out there was no need to worry. Although roadworks were going on almost next to the parking lot, we weren't disturbed (they didn't start too early, and work ended late afternoon). Maybe because of the roadworks there was very little traffic passing in front of the hotel, and we didn't hear any noise from the parking lot or from other rooms.

Our room was spacious and comfortable -- king bed with good mattress and pillows, a table and chairs, microwave, bigger-than-average fridge, TV with decent selection of channels, and a strong wifi connection. Good water pressure and lots of hot water in the bathroom. The room couldn't have been cleaner, and the bedspread and carpet looked new. Everything, in fact, was way above what you might expect from a budget hotel chain.

The manager (maybe he's also the owner) was very helpful in explaining the transit system and which routes go where. If you're planning to visit downtown Portland, give yourself a stress-free day by leaving your car in the parking lot (no charge, unlike at many area hotels). Take a five-minute walk around the Rose Quarter to the transit point where you can pick up a train over the steel bridge into town. This route is part of the free zone, where there's no charge to use public transit. There are lots of interesting places to get to on foot: the Pearl District (tasty and imaginative lunch at Park Kitchens), Whole Foods (including great deli) and the immense Powell's Books. We later took a train up to 21st Street, where there are all kinds of restaurant options. We were very pleased with our dinner at Ind Ish, a chic eatery serving delicious north Indian cuisine tapas style (the portions are more generous than at many tapas restaurants). You can get a train from that area directly back to the Rose Quarter stop near the hotel.

The hotel is not located in the most prosperous part of Portland, but it felt perfectly safe. We had absolutely no concerns about walking around, even at night, and we had no worries about leaving our car in the parking lot. If you decide to stay there, it may be worthwhile phoning and asking if roadworks are still going on, because if they are, detours and diversions may make it tricky to find the place. However, the front desk can give you instructions. This is not the only part of town affected by road and bridge construction, btw. It seemed widespread in July.

I chose the Econolodge because we were going to the Moda Center and it was very close. The outside looked worn down when we pulled up. The check in room was a sliding glass door with a very small space toenter. I felt a little unsafe. We entered the room, and again, it was very small. We had a refrigerator and a tiny coffee maker. The room and bathroom were clean. The bed had old styled bedding, but was actually a very comfortable sleep. It was a very tiny room for the amount of money we paid. The best thing I can say is that it was clean inside and close to the Moda Center.

Coming back from Washington state and had one night to spare before heading back east, we decided to find a place closest to downtown on a specific price. Tada! Econo lodge! The good, price wise I know I could have gotten a better or close to the same price with better facilities but, the location is good. The street street car stops in front, ample parking and your own incense scents waffling thru your room.

Wifi, I wish they move the router closer to the middle. The rooms towards 221 dont get strong wifi.

Breakfast? Coffee juice and packaged pastry..love the names though. Snails, horns and claws. Pastries.

Staff seems family run, smiley bunch.

Staying at this hotel was the most terrible experience ever! Our company was paying for the hotel room and they did not have email, only a very archaic fax machine. The owner was very rude and said that everyone had to wait outside until the fax came through and they kept asking for tweaks to be made to the authorization form - they kept saying their property has all these rules (which did not really make sense) it was freezing outside and they were so rude and at that point, we felt we needed to jump through their little hoops because they had our credit card number and it was too late to cancel the room. We were so frustrated and when we told them that the experience was very frustrating, they told us that they could refuse to rent us a room if they wanted to ... if I knew it would have been this way, I would have definitely booked another hotel - it was not worth it at all ... and on top of it, the rooms were not clean and they smelled terrible. Do not stay here - especially if you have children!

Parked here for the blazer game as I was told they have nightly patrol and a lit parking lot and right across from the game. Patrol decided to call it an early night and that's when multiple cars (including mine) got broken into. I guess even when you pay to park you're supposed to somehow keep full watch of what's going on around and to your car as well. Next time I'll just take an uber and not coming back here.
