The lady who checked us in did not bother to provide access code for the internet nor did she tell us about the breakfast hours or point us to where the breakfast location was.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Zuta Good location, room needed some additions.
This hotel is constructed perpendicular to busy, 4-lane Airport Way. Thus it seemed quieter than other hotels we have stayed at in the area that have rooms that front directly on the road. There was no in-room blanket to use as an alternative to what is now the ever present duvet. At least the duvet wasn't overly thick. There was no box of tissues in the room. The room was a bit worn with a large stain on one chair. However, the breakfast was pretty good, the staff very friendly and the location is very convenient to PDX. Not far away is a very scenic paved trail along the river for those who want to walk/run/bike.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JarensDad Good value; would stay here again
We stayed two nights at the Holiday Inn and I was very satisfied.
First, the positives ... The staff were all pleasant and accommodating. The location, about five minutes from the airport and shopping at Cascade Station, was very convenient. The free breakfast had a number of choices that varied from day to day. The room was very spacious and clean. A really nice touch was the free movies (including adult movies), no other property I've been to does that. The exercise room was well-equipped with a weight machine, treadmills and dumbbells.
The only minor negatives ... There was a lot of mildew in the caulking around the tub. We had four people staying in our room but were only left with three sets of towels. The breakfast hours were until 10:00 a.m., but when we went down at 9:40 a.m., the servers were starting to close up everything. By 9:50 a.m., the refrigerator with the milk and yogurt was locked and many of the items had been cleared away.
Overall we had a good experience at this property and would definitely stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by redcat Convenient location, close to PDX, and great service
Enjoyed our overnight stay before flying out. Breakfast options were good and front desk staff both welcoming and efficient. Business center convenient only concern was the noisy a/c unit in the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravelAgent1 Fabulous Staff and Great Breakfast Selection!
What an exciting surprise I had when I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Portland. The staff was outstanding my entire stay. One day when I was using the guest laundry, I found that someone had left the dryer dirty. I went to the front desk (at 10 p.m.) to ask if they had another laundry room. They said no, but immediately, one of the front door staff went to the laundry room and on his hands and knees, cleaned out the dryer for me. Now that's top-notch service!
My biggest surprise was that they offered turkey sausage everyday as part of their breakfast buffet. Most hotels do not event think about non-pork eaters, but not this Holiday Inn Express.
Another great example of the high standards of this hotel is that one of the days I was there was my birthday. The front desk staff told me happy birthday and stated that she would save me a cookie that was being put out that day. Sure enough, when I returned from my outing, there was a cookie waiting for me!
I would definitely stay here again and recommend to all that I know, that this hotel is one of the best I have stayed in!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Finally Traveling Relaxing atmosphere and Convenient location
When we arrived the sign in the lobby told us about the free cocktail party and after our long trip nothing could have sounded better. The check-in process was quick and easy and the staff welcoming. After relaxing with a couple of drinks and some snacks we decided to look for a place to eat dinner and was directed to a nice sports bar within walking distance. After dinner we wanted to return the rental car so we wouldn't have to do it in the morning. We were able to take the shuttle back to the hotel from the airport. In the morning breakfast was great and our ride to the airport again came off without a hitch. We will definitely stay in this HIE again when visiting relatives

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cindylynne Great Friendly Atmosphere
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this Holiday Inn. The staff was exceptionally accommodating and interested in our visit being a good one. When asked for recommendations for a nice dinner they provided us with personal input and their choice was a perfect one for us. When asked for directions they were quick to provide appropriate directions that were easy to understand. We had one issue with a child jumping on (and off) a bed in the room above us until the wee hours of the morning. We didn't report the issue until the next morning and when we did the staff promptly put us in a nice room in a quiet corner of the hotel. If/When I visit Portland again, I will be calling this hotel to make arrangements.

Breakfast , the area was maintained with consistent visits to ensure all items were available. The breads, rolls, were wrapped in clear plastic which is a plus for freshness. Numerous items were available.
Since my last visit to this location a huge improvement in this area.

Very nice hotel with excellent, friendly staff. Bathroom was spacious , but could use a makeover. A little noisy in the room. Could hear footsteps of above rooms, but not that big a deal. Very clean, convenient hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AMH61 Excellent Value and Service
The standout part of this stay was the excellent service by the front-of-house staff. All were very obliging and went out of their way particularly in terms of their shuttle service. Nothing was too much trouble and this was certainly appreciated. Also unlike any other Holiday Inn Express we have stayed in, this one provided welcome/refreshment snacks and drinks on the Wednesday evening. A good overall experience helped by the personal touches provided by the staff.

I have stayed at other Holiday Inn properties as I travel quite a bit for work in Oregon and Washington. I found this property to be very relaxing. Small things in a room impress me with the thoughtfulness involved so finding a soap dish in the bathroom impressed me. Most times the soap will sit on a wrapper or in a plastic cup so this was a nice touch. The bed was extremely comfortable (especially for 11 hours of much needed sleep.) Thank you for a great stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lady Road Warrior Wonderful bed & pillows!
This is the second time I've stayed at this facility & both times I was very happy with my stay there. The beds I've slept on in this hotel are great. The pillows are wonderful too. I wish I slept this well at home! And free hot breakfast?!?! You can't beat that with a stick! I will stay here the next time I'm in Portland. The location is central & close to the places I need to get to & the employees are always kind & helpful.

-The carpets in our entire room were soaked. My husband inquired at the front desk to see if they knew if our room at recently had the carpets clean. The front desk employee didn't know and also didn't acknowledge the inconvenience. We had to keep all bags off the floor-either on the desk or in the bathroom to avoid them seeping up the water that was on the floor. This was the only disappointment and inconvenience.

The room had a musty smell when we first got inside. We opened the window alot to get fresh air. The room was ok, but the free internet service was terrible. We were on the 3rd floor and it kicked us off the internet almost as soon as we were able to log on which took forever in the first place. The internet service was very important to us so we were very displeased with it. When we asked about it, we were told Apple products had a hard time finding the internet. We have never had that problem anywhere else though. Also it was rather noisy in the room, could hear the planes landing and taking off, also a train was somewhere nearby so you could hear that as well. The room was always cleaned very nicely by the maids though everyday. :) (Thank you, good job). Next visit I think we will try a different location just for a change.

We arrived at 10:30 pm and headed straight to bed and got up at 4:00 a.m. To catch free shuttle to the airport. When we returned our shuttle picked us up promptly. The staff was very friendly and I feel this review should be above average but our stay was so short we didn't experience all the hotel had to offer. We will be back!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dspears OK hotel, Not as nice as other HIE
We stayed in another HIE hotel(Meridian Idaho), it was so nice, we decided to stay at the same hotel in Portland. There was no comparison. Portland was very dirty, the bathroom was disgusting, and falling apart. The staff was not nearly as friendly either. There were a few employees who acknowledged us when we arrived or departed, but it was maybe one or two total. The gal that works in the breakfast area was very kind and friendly(the one during the week that is). The one on the weekend never smiled or spoke a word. The hotel for sure needs some upgrading.

We enjoyed the family suite with king and queen bed. Perfect! For the age of the hotel all was satisfactory. Usual worn tile grout, but clean. We were concerned it might be too close to airport noise but during our 3 night stay I only heard 3 jets. Can't remember name of shopping center nearby, it had an IKEA store and it had a great variey of shops.
