Your Car will be Broken in-to
If you have a car, don’t use their unsecured parking/garage, your car will be broken into. Their lots are accessible to pedestrians. Also the two rooms I was given, had stains on the carpet and old cigarette smell.
Outdated but fair price
If you need just a place to stay this would fit the bill. Room was ok, beds are decent, walls are thin, the bathroom was outdated and worn, and the Wifi signal was spotty. The entire hotel has seen it's better days. Staff was super nice and responsive. The area is ok in the day but it does get a little crazy at night. Options for food and entertainment are better across the river but there are few places within walking distance.
Noisy room along the railway. The train even runs at midnight and very early in the morning. Bathtub and sink completely got stuck. A lot of mold on the ceiling of the bathroom. Found a bug in my bed.
Went to an even at the Convention Center and this hotel is just across the street. Aside from the great location, the room was comfortable. Places to eat are nearby as well. You do pay extra to park there, but I figure that's just how it is today. If I had to chose to stay here again, I would.
Incredibly Convenient to Convention Center but in need of a Face Lift
In some ways, this is the most challenging review. How to convey such a great experience at an aged property that is under some level of maintenance. And I say "maintenance" instead of "renovation" because that's more appropriate for the property and the current position of the management. My understanding is that the management is still planning its course of action on the actual renovation. Current projects have been for asbestos abatement and some repainting of the rooms. As such, less than 50% of the rooms are actually being used in April 2023. I chose this hotel because I remember it being extremely close to the convention center on previous trips. And since I'm attending a show at the convention center, I wanted it to be as easy as possible. The Inn is perfect for this. I don't know if there are amenities like a pool, sauna, etc. I didn't ask, but there is no restaurant though there's one across the street and all over the area, so it's not really an issue. The room is dated. I can't quite tell if it's straight out of 1978 or 1982, but it's dated. However, the room was clean and in very good condition considering its age. I had room 505 which offers a commanding view of SE Portland. Just Awesome views and I could see the convention center and hotel entrances, which makes it more convenient. I looked at some of the 1 star reviews and I can't defend the condition of the hotel. Some will find it unacceptable. Perhaps I was lucky. My room was rather nice. The A/C worked well (as did the heat), the bathroom was small and old but (with the exception of my final night) housekeeping was all over things. Every day, the room was cleaned/refreshed, towels replaced and kept tidy. I think it's just not possible to award five stars when the property is in its current condition. However, the 4 stars I am giving is perched solely on the strength of the hotel staff. I had just come from a stay at the comparatively luxurious Virgin Curio in Las Vegas. A nice time that was marred by the surly woman at checkin and usurious fees. At The Inn at the Convention Center, it is the staff that is their savior. Friendly, welcoming, helpful. I ended up interacting with a number of the front desk staff, housekeeping and maintenance. All were very kind and, essentially, the ideal kind of people you want in hospitality. So, until the owners decide what they want to do and renovate the hotel, stay with your eyes open. Know that the property is dated and if you're expecting the Hyatt, better to go stay at the Hyatt. If you're looking for a location convenient to the convention center that's a good place to lay your head while you're out the rest of the day, this place can be ideal. Also, the hotel is in the middle of the city and Portland is undergoing some heavy social issues. Homeless abound. They don't seem to bother visitors though, but awareness is key. If you want that kind of thing to remain hidden then perhaps staying in the far suburbs will suit your tastes better.
