I had a very cozy stay here following a long day of cross-country travel. I got in after midnight and was very pleased with how comfortable, clean, quiet, and cozy the room was. I was a woman traveling alone and felt very safe, even arriving late at night. The lady at the front desk was very nice. They do require a $20 deposit, so make sure you have that and that you check-out at the office to get your money back (rather than just leaving the key on the room and leaving). Also, no pets allowed at all, so that may be a consideration for some people traveling with their pets. I found this place on hotels.com and definitely would stay here again!
My fiancé and I have stayed here three times, and each time has been wonderful! This motel is very affordable, but you still get what you need and more. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. The rooms are always clean, and everything is up to date. This is the place to stay if you’re looking to travel on a budget but still want quality. I would definitely recommend the Nordic Motel, and I look forward to my next stay.
We (2 adults, a 6yo and a 9yo) spent 5 nights here visiting friends in Portland and Hillsboro, and we were very satisfied. A place with separate bedrooms — divided by a door no less — for under $100 a night is a real find. Include the full functioning kitchen and free parking and we were sold.
We caught on through other reviews that the kitchen doesn’t include pots, pans, dishes, etc. we arranged with a friend to borrow the basics, and it was fantastic having a full size fridge, oven, stove, and microwave. We saved a fortune on eating out.
Also, the beds and pillows were very comfortable and definitely a cut above what you think of when you imagine motel beds.
We never heard a peep from neighbors, and everything was very clean. Our room was nonsmoking and smelled fresh. There was a security camera directly outside the room and there always seemed to be someone in the office and we felt very safe.
A little coffee stand is directly across the street and once I went for espresso, but usually got the free coffee in the office.
There is a really well reviewed breakfast place, The German Bakery, just down the street but they were closed Sunday and Monday. We definitely intend to go there next time.
The owners were very nice and extremely accommodating. They are always there to help when you need them.
The place is very clean and tidy. We were very pleased that the room has a nice set up. We went with the two bedroom because it was only a few dollars more. The beds are separated by a room so there is more privacy. The people were also very friendly and kind. The parking is also very nice because it is directly in front of all the rooms. I definitely know where I’m staying next time I’m in the PDX. The beds are also very comfortable and the two bedroom comes with a kitchen. There is a refrigerator, microwave, sink, and dining table.
About a 15 minute drive to downtown, close to the airport. Great value, really clean rooms one of the cleanest motel we have ever stayed at, powerfull shower! Helpful staff, next time We are in Portland we will be staying here again.
Stayed for one night in May 2014. I wasn’t sure how nice it would be based on the price and location but this is a great place to stay. The room was perfectly clean with a new refrigerator and microwave. It looked like it was newly renovated and was very comfortable. The staff was also very courteous. It was very easy to find- only a 10-minute drive from PDX and maybe 20 minutes from downtown. I will definitely stay here again.
