Close to hospitals – Excellent place to stay for patients/visitors of OHSU or veterans hospital.
Better than we expected – Our King room is comfortable and good size. Nothing real fancy, but roomy. There's a small refrigerator and free Internet in the room. Carpets are a bit worn, but that's balanced by the great location next to Portland State University. And the restaurant, Encore 310, is wonderful, an overlooked gem. We rated our meal there tonight very highly at a relatively moderate price. The under $20 entrees would cost you $35 other places in town. Restaurant highly recommended. Hotel--Lots more than adequate.
Everything was pleasant, and the neighborhood was quite and safe.
Great room for the money – The front desk staff was really nice as they let me check in early on rainy day. I wanted to use the hotels laundry mat and it wasn't working so the front desk staff map quest a laundry mat in town that was convient for me to go. My room was comfortable and they had free internet service as well which was great. I went to the hotels restaurant as well and the Crab cakes were great no compliants from me. The only down side I had is when I checked out the inquired about using the computer in the lobby and was charged 15.00 for 15 minutes and it was supposed to be only 3.95. Well as I was explaining this to the front desk clerk she said that this had just starting happening (highly doubtful) and as I went on the talk about this subject she cut me off completely as if she didn't want to hear anything else I had to say. None the less she told me to sign the check out form and sent me on my way, no thanks for staying, have a nice day; she just started talking to her co-workers as if I didn't exist anymore. I've worked in the customer service field for quite some time and for a company that has won the JD powers award 5 times in a row for customer service and this irked me big time. Anyways all in all this was a great stay for the price of the hotel and the cleaniness of the hotel. I'd recommend it to others for sure.
University Place - Good for Portland Marathon – Great accommodation for the Portland Marathon. Provided runners' breakfast at 5 am and late checkout of 1pm for runners on the day of the race. It was nice to be able to come back after a race in the rain and take a shower before checking out. Also have a nice weight/work-out room. Less than 3/4 mile from the Marathon start. Front desk staff not always the most friendly and helpful but rates were as expected.
Comfy, quiet room at PSU and close to Max light rail – The room was comfortable, quiet and convenient to PSU and the light rail brought me to and from the train station and the Pearl District for free. Unfortunately the continental breakfast was worse than no breakfast at all. The staff were young and very helpful - I'd stay again but just make sure to go out for breakfast!
Of all the places we have stayed in ANY state, this place and every staff member (especially Willie) were very helpful in any and every situation. Very, very pleased. Will return to University Place without a doubt!!
