We stopped in at the Motel 6 "Downtown" for a night on our way down to San Francisco. The reception received from the front desk was mediocre at best, and a follow up visit to inquire about nearby dining options and WIFI password left me feeling like an inconvenience. The room itself was a let down, but given the price...

We had reservations for the Marriott down the block but ended up in town a night earlier then expected. So last minute we had to find a room and this was it. The front desk girl was this side of rude. The room was what you expect from a motel: kinda crappy. The heater didn't work, we were freezing all...

Don’t be fooled by the cheap price ($60-$90)... This place is a dump, floor to ceiling. We stayed in room 214 which has 2 beds. The bed closest to the door was in a U shape, practically had to lie on pillows to have somewhat of a level surface. The other bed was not as bad, but the edge had...

If nothing else Motel 6 has always been consistent you get what you pay for and most are decent this Motel 6 was unbelievable we got what we paid for and more after refusing to take the first room given to us not able to over look the fact that the bathroom door had been kicked in the door frame...

Where do I start? Motel 6 is so hit and miss these days and this one is definitely a miss. I felt comfortable reserving a room here since it was AAA approved in their book. Seeing the AAA plaque in the office was encouraging. The room was spacious enough. The tram noise didn't bother me as much as some people....

Stayed here many times in the past because of the price and great location. We could reduce the noise of the MAX with a second floor room and ear plugs. Unfortunately the place has been going down hill fast (poor maintance) and on the last trip we found a large adult bed bug. We switched rooms but still received the...

We stayed here because of the price and it's location! Close to the convention centre if you are going for a convention (within walking distance). It's your basic older motel - slightly run down.

If you are looking for a luxury stay, this is not it. HOWEVER, if you are attending an event at the Oregon Convention Center and get a rate of under $60 a night, this is the place to stay. I won't bother describing the furnishings other than to say that the beds were surprisingly comfortable, the room was acceptably clean...

- felt like the receptionist did not wanted to work at this motel. - during night, everytime the MAX tram passed by the motel you can hear it quite good - otherwise stay was ok and room clean

I had a wonderful stay here. My only complaint is there is no washer and dryer on the premises. No laundromats in the immediate area either. It doesn't have room service, a spa, or a pool, but if these aren't important to you, you'll be fine. Beds were big and comfy, room was very clean. The housekeeping staff was great...

“I would run the other way and stay somewhere else in any other room at any other establishment. This place isn't convenient enough for all its other issues. A cab fare would have been worth it.”
