Ive stayed here three times and each time I meant to write a review. Today is finally the day when I tell everyone about the high quality stays Ive had at the NORDIC! Super clean rooms, super friendly owner, and very modern facilities - you cannot beat the price, either, not for this high quality of stay!

Traveled from Seattle to Portland area to participate in the Rose City Yarn Crawl with some friends. Made it to Portland late on Thursday night and had reserved a room at the Nordic Motel for us. Price was perfect for the location and the quality of the place. We had a Family room which means there were two beds, one...

Only stayed here for a few hours as we had an early morning international flight the next day. But it was clean and comfortable, and the lady at the front desk was super sweet. Nothing exciting, but it gave us a place to sleep for a bit and we had no complaints.

We anticipated getting into Portland much earlier, but ended up showing up at 12:30am. Somehow the Patel's were friendly at that hour and the son gave us some great advice about Portland! The room was spotless and they even turned the heat on for us before we arrived. The bathroom was small - but wasn't a big deal at all....just...

We don't travel in order to hang around a hotel: we just like a reliable, clean place to sleep and take a shower, and maybe catch up on email, etc. in the evening. The more affordable, the better. The Nordic was just perfect. Small, convenient rooms that were well-kept. There was a small fridge in each room which was handy,...

A small (family run?) inn. Very simply appointed with just the basics. Towels, tiny soap and shampoo, microwave, refrigerator, small table with two chairs, very good TV, free Wi-Fi and very comfortable bed. Bathroom clean with very good shower. Front desk always on call if needed and friendly people. Just the right place for one or two nights. Very reasonably...

We stayed there for two nights in February at a time that is not normally a vacation time. The result was that I would come back here. The rooms are clean and the one we had was upgraded recently. It is really a retro motel from the 1950's where you drive along the road and little one story motels dotted...

Chose Nordic Motel based on Tripadvisor ratings. Sometimes I want fancy, sometimes I want basic. Nordic Motel is basic, but a very nice place! Was not disappointed. Upon entering the motel, I saw that the grounds were clean, tidy and nicely painted. The room itself had been remodeled and was also spotless. Had all the amenities one could ask for...

The Portland Nordic Motel is a gem of a place to stay in Portland very near PDX. The staff are friendly, the location close to restaurants, and services, rooms are tastefully decorated, with coffee makers, refrigerators and microwaves. Clean well organized, very fair pricing and the lobby offers coffee with flavored creamers too!
