The rooms were adequate, about what you'd expect from a place like this - we had 2 beds, a mini-fridge, a television with basic cable, a sink, and a small bathroom which had just a shower and a toilet. There was also a pool, although we didn't use it.

They do not offer breakfast, but there is a Denny's literally right next door (on the other side of the parking lot, you can walk there).

Our rate was around $83 a night (after taxes and everything), which we split, so I'm marking the box below as "$40-$80" since it was only ~$42 each.

It was a decent location to stay in Portland without having to pay the premium rates to be right downtown, as it is only about 4-5 miles from the downtown/harbor area. It's too far to walk, so your options are to either drive down there and pay to park in town or to take a cab, which cost about $14 each way. For parking, there are a lot of meter spots to use as well as some lots where you can pay anywhere from $5-$10 to park for the whole day. Some parking is free on Sundays and after a certain time on other days.

There are also a few things around the hotel. Besides Denny's, there is a Ruby Tuesday which has a bar and also a small shopping center with a grocery store and a few other shops.

Overall, we had a nice stay here and would recommend it.
