The Portland airport was sold out and I was less than excited when my husband booked this hotel. I was SO wrong! It is probably the nicest Comfort Inn I've ever seen. Just renovated, sparklingly clean - the rooms even have wooden floors and the shower curtain was squeaky clean and pure white as was the lovely tub surround. Beds...

We love it when you're wrong in the right way : ). A lot of our returning guests originally found us when the PDX hotels were full, and, while our friends at the airport properties do a great job, we're delighted when we make that extra twelve miles well worth your effort. Glad that you found everything as it should...

Very nice staff, clean. Comfortable. Breakfast in morning, soup and cookies at 5. BUT.. If you want quiet, not going to get. It's next to a small airport which must do helicopter training. They wake us up at 7- 7:30 in the morning. Helicopters are idling, flying, hovering. We wake up to it and come back from a long day...

I am very sorry that the airport disturbed you. Our guests are about evenly split between those who want to watch the small planes and helicopter school, and those who want nothing to do with it. Being in the latter category, simply request an east side (even numbered) room, and your room will be quiet with nothing out your window...

Stayed just one night while in the area for business. Making reservations was easy and a good idea since my stay was during the busy summer vacation season. Check in was a breeze and the young woman at the front desk was really nice and remembered me from making my reservation over the phone. The room was clean and comfortable...

I am delighted that your stay was just right, and, Yes, please!, reserve as soon as you know you're coming this way in high season (which runs from mid-May until late in October). We had to turn so many people traveling without reservations away this year. We do our best to find them another hotel, but there were nights where...

We stayed here when we needed a last minute place to stay. The price was reasonable, the staff was very friendly, the room was spotless and it was conveniently located for what we needed. Will definitely stay there again.

This is a very nice hotel, I would recommend it for anyone traveling through the area or for a base to explore the Columbia Gorge area.

We call Troutdale "The Gateway To The Gorge" and it truly is, isn't it? The Historic Columbia River Highway starts less than a mile from your room (and if you didn't stop for the new HCRH exhibit at the Barn Museum, add that to your list next time - the Historical Society did a great job with it). Thank you...

This hotel really impressed me. The front desk help were friendly and efficient. The room was clean and quiet, with a coffee pot, fridge and microwave.
