Complete mess.
no address on hotel, hard to find. No person at desk to check in. Terrible pillows and bedding. Filthy bathroom needs complete update. No shower spout at all. Worst experience ever. No soap, nothing. Worst hotel ever.

4/10 Fair

It Works
Easy to navigate to and park at. Space was large but was pretty unkept. There were spots/stains on the floor, the was black mold on the curtains above the AC unit, stains on the curtains and bedding. Would have likely gone somewhere else if not for having already paid for the night.

8/10 Very good

Overall a good hotel. Small cosmetic issues throughout. Like a hole in the Sheetrock and clothes hook in shower was broken. Everything was clean. Hot water took a long time to get hot, but when it finally did it was a perfect temperature and didn’t run out. They are using “clean” remotes That I guess make it easier for them to clean, but don’t work that well on the tvs. Arrangement of room was awkward, the couch didn’t face the tv. So we had to sit at weird angles to enjoy tv in the evening. A lot of construction going on so I believe they are working on updating their rooms. Staff was very friendly. I believe that $25 a day to park in the parking lot of a hotel i’m already paying to stay at is a little ridiculous. Over all I was pleased with the stay, and would stay here again.

6/10 Good

Not the best, not the worst
Not the nicest, but definitely the cheapest in the area. Had to pay extra for parking, but it wasn’t too expensive. The room seemed a little outdated, but clean and functional. They were short on staff, so the check in process took a long time. Was warned that shampoo and conditioner may not have been available, but luckily there was already some in our room. Overall could have been worse.

8/10 Very good

Reasonable expectations equals contentment
This isn’t a five star hotel and doesn’t pretend to be. It’s older, was obviously a motel and is pretty dated. However, the staff was nice, friendly and helpful, and the room itself was clean and relatively large. The beds were decent, and the sink and counter by the mini fridge and microwave was a nice touch. The WiFi was a little dodgy at times as was the local tv channel reception. Once we settled in, it suited our purposes nicely. I would recommend sucking it up and paying the $25 a night parking fee. Mount Hood Road is very narrow and finding parking within a reasonable distance consistently is unlikely. Given the prices of other places that we checked out, it’s not a deal breaker if you don’t want to shell out 2-300 bucks a night.
