Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn & Suites Portland Airport
Good value for money
My only complaint would be that the walls are very thin. The first night I thought people were in our room as I could hear very clearly hear a conversation from a neighbouring room. The last night I had to call the front desk and have them ask the next door neighbour to please turn down her tv, it was 2:00 a.m. When the desk clerk knocked on her door, she couldn't hear him over how loud the tv was, thankfully she did turn the tv off. Perhaps I'm a ligh sleeper as both my husband and daughter weren't affected by the noise. We picked this hotel because it was central to where we wanted to be in Portland, had an inside pool and the price was excellent. I was happy with how clean the room, lobby and breakfast areas all were. I would stay there again, just bring along ear plugs.
Clean, Friendly and Convenient
The La Quinta Inn & Suites at Portland Airport is a four-story hotel that offers many amentities. They offer free internet access in the lobby area to print out your boarding pass for your flight out, which I found to be most convenient. The indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi is available to use 24 hours a day for registered guests. This hotel has a small fitness room adjacent to the pool area for use as well. If you have laundry to do, they have a couple of washers and dryers as well. The continental breakfast is plentiful, beginning at 4:00 a.m. and served until 10:00 a.m. daily with complimentary newspapers (The Oregonian and USA Today) in the lobby.
The rooms are quiet and clean and the windows do open. I stayed for 3 nights and 4 days and never had a problem with the parking. I noticed that there is also parking on the street, if need be.
The staff is most wonderful as they were all very helpful and available 24 hours a day if you needed anything. This hotel is also pet-friendly. I will definately stay here again when I am in the Portland area.
Park 'N' Fly
We stay at this La Qunita Inn whenever we need to fly somewhere from PDX airport. There is a parking lot underneath, with security cameras, where you can leave your car while you're gone. The La Quinta shuttle will take you to the airport and then pick you up when you return from your trip.
Hotel has an elevator, and there are wheeled luggage carts to get everything up to your room. Rooms are pleasant and well-equipped. They have broadband internet access and will supply you with the cord to hook up to it with your laptop computer.
In the morning, they serve a good continental breakfast downstairs in a room with a TV. The front desk staff are courteous and efficient.
My husband and I are senior citizens. In September, 2005, we were looking for a hotel near the airport in Portland that would shuttle us to and from the airport. We didn't want to rent a car as we don't like to drive in new cities. The staff at LaQuinta were truly fantastic in their shuttle service. Not only did they pick us up at the airport, but the next day they took us back to the airport where we could take the lite-rail downtown. When we returned from our excursion downtown, they came back to the airport lite-rail station to pick us up. They even offered to take us to a nearby restaurant That is what I call excellent service. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The breakfasts were very good with a lot of variety. We will definately go back there when we are in Portland, Oregon.
Good hotel but...
we stayed here 2 nights and the front desk people were great! however, i recall requesting a non-smoking room and we were put in smoking and the smell is still on us! our clothes and our pets smelled like smoke well after we left the place! other than that, the place was safe and quiet. la quintas are so wonderful about pets that we would stay here again if we needed to.
Pleased with the La Quinta Airport
We flew in to Portland for a wedding and wanted to stay near the airport due to the numerous family members flying in at different times. We were extremely pleased with this motel - the desk staff was some of the friendliest and most helpful I have ever encountered. The 24 hour airport shuttle was wonderful as was the early (4 AM) opening of their hot continental breakfast. Our room was well appointed, clean, and quite spacious. Parking is somewhat limited for those driving their own vehicles. I would definately stay here again.
Caters to those heading for their early morning flight...
My family and I stayed at nine different hotels in sixteen days and surprisingly all of them were great (thanks in part to reading reviews from fellow travelers at TripAdvisor). The La Quinta Inn & Suites - Portland Airport rated near the top of the hotels we stayed at.
For three adults, the AAA Rate was $85.05, including taxes. The non-smoking room on Floor One (which was actually the second floor) was very large, and included two very nice beds, a clock radio, two chairs, a desk, a large television in a cabinet with remote, a mid-size refrigerator, a microwave, and an iron and ironing board. The carpet on the floor in the room seemed a bit worn and had bulges in it.
The bathroom was extremely large with lots of room to move around. It included a hairdryer, a coffeemaker, and one bottle of shampoo. The sink was in the bathroom and the shower/bathtub had a handrail.
While walking to our room, which was at the end of a long hallway, we noticed that the ice and vending machines were just outside our door, as were the stairs to the parking garage. I thought to myself that this would be a long night, as we would hear all the noises associated with these machines. To make matters worse, my family and I were able to hear the airplanes fly over the hotel during the day, and I thought of how little sleep we would be getting. Either we were tired or the planes stop flying, but we heard nothing all night and had a peaceful rest.
From what I understand, Portland can be quite a rainy place, so you will be happy to know that the hotel has some limited parking stalls underground. Otherwise, parking is at a premium, so you might want to arrive early for the best spot.
The hotel is near the airport, and provides free shuttle service so you can catch your plane. Also, the continental breakfast starts at 4:00 am local time, for those catching the early flight out.
However, it is not the most convenient hotel around. While it was easy to find, just off the Interstate, it is in an industrial area with very few amenities (like restaurants) located nearby. Despite this, the staff was very obliging and helped us find the local grocery store, and even showed us a menu from one of the local restaurants (Shari's - which we ate at in the morning and it was very good).
Overall, we found the hotel to be just fine for our needs, as it was clean and surprisingly quiet. It caters to those heading to the airport to catch a plane, but will do nicely for those just wanting a place to sleep for the night.
Impressed by La Quinta Portland
We were impressed by La Quinta, Portland. The room was a generous size, very well presented, clean. We got in late from a flight and check in was quick and friendly, with the check-in person ensuring that we knew that breakfast was included for us.
We had a restful night after a long day's travel, and woke in time for breakfast which was plentiful and diverse. Not being from America, we found some of the breakfast foods on our trip to be different - and fun to try.
The front desk staff were also helpful in the morning, letting us know the best way to see the city in a short time before our flight out. We thoroughly enjoyed out unexpected trip to Portland which was caused by airplane mechanical problems.
Very good airport hotel
This is a fairly new hotel very close to the portland airport; we stayed here when we had a 6AM flight as it's about a 2-3 minute drive. The rooms are quite nice and clean and include mini-refrigerator. In spite of being close to the airport, the hotel is fairly quiet. Their free continental breakfast starts at 4AM! The price is usually among the best for the airport hotels. Have stayed there twice and would definitely do so again.
Perfect Airport Hotel
Very new hotel close to the airport (about 3 Minutes by Shuttle/Car).
Clean, nice rooms with coffee maker and fridge. Indoor pool which is
not too big, but very clean too. Continental breakfast is included and if
you are on the way for an early flight you can have the breakfast as
early as 5 am. Friendly staff and Alamo Rental Car ist just 3 Minutes
by foot (!) away. You can walk to the Alamo station. I'd stay here again.

Our trip down to Portland started off well but as we approached Portland we could see the storm clouds forming in the sky ahead of us and new we were in for some nasty weather. Just before the city the storm hit but we were still a little behind it.
