More then meets the eye
When we first pulled up, i was definitely skeptical. The location is not the most desirable, but Portland is really easy to get around in via car so not a big deal. When we walked into the room we were blown away with the quality and comfort of the room. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. 10/10 would stay here again!

Nice place and great price
My husband and I had a great stay here. The room was very nice and modern. It was clean and the bed and pillows were really comfortable. The staff was very friendly. Nordic Motel was much nicer than any motel I've ever stayed in.
It's a bit of a trek to the downtown Portland area if you are going by public transit, but I already knew that when I booked it so I can't really complain. The train across the street is noisey in the morning but it doesn't run on the weekend so that wasn't really an issue either.
The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Amenities were great, with expanded cable, DVD player, fridge and microwave, and especially very good wireless internet. The staff is very friendly and courteous, always willing to help with any problems I had. It is conveniently located close to the airport, a lightrail station and the interstate, but also sort of off the beaten path so it makes the surroundings quieter and not so busy. Some people have commented on the lack of either an exercise room or pool, but I think that is not really as important, especially in Portland, where trails and parks abound very close to everywhere, and you can still get your workout. For the price, this is a great motel and it is my go-to place to stay whenever I'm in the Portland area.
What downsides I noticed were all fairly minor in nature and not really things the owners can be faulted for. The location, though convenient to the airport and other ground transportation, is still quite far out from the city center. There are train tracks across the street from the hotel, so once in a while you hear one go by. The parking lot can be a little tight, so be careful when pulling your car in or out.
It was small and quiet.
They won't refund my $20 deposit. I had to call my creditcard company to get it back. Such a pain and not worth the headache.
