The location was very convenient to the airport and the staff was very friendly and available at early/late hours. The room was very clean and comfortable. Noise from the road was minimal and easily muffled by running the fan. I was very happy with everything and would definitely stay here again.

Loved this place! We will return. Close to everything we needed And the kitchenettes were nice and roomy with full size refrigerators. Owners are on sight and ready to make it the best stay ever! Only thing that bugged me was the fridge was very loud running all night. Maids did a great job and the grounds are well kept....

Arriving at PDX about 8:40 p.m., I sought out a taxi (as advised by Airport Information Staff) because the Nordic does not provide a Shuttle. The Nordic is located about twenty minutes away, and I was denied a TAXI by TWO drivers ... the first driver, looking at the address, and telling me "I don't know where that is...". Be...

Ive stayed here three times and each time I meant to write a review. Today is finally the day when I tell everyone about the high quality stays Ive had at the NORDIC! Super clean rooms, super friendly owner, and very modern facilities - you cannot beat the price, either, not for this high quality of stay!

Traveled from Seattle to Portland area to participate in the Rose City Yarn Crawl with some friends. Made it to Portland late on Thursday night and had reserved a room at the Nordic Motel for us. Price was perfect for the location and the quality of the place. We had a Family room which means there were two beds, one...

Only stayed here for a few hours as we had an early morning international flight the next day. But it was clean and comfortable, and the lady at the front desk was super sweet. Nothing exciting, but it gave us a place to sleep for a bit and we had no complaints.

We anticipated getting into Portland much earlier, but ended up showing up at 12:30am. Somehow the Patel's were friendly at that hour and the son gave us some great advice about Portland! The room was spotless and they even turned the heat on for us before we arrived. The bathroom was small - but wasn't a big deal at all....just...

We don't travel in order to hang around a hotel: we just like a reliable, clean place to sleep and take a shower, and maybe catch up on email, etc. in the evening. The more affordable, the better. The Nordic was just perfect. Small, convenient rooms that were well-kept. There was a small fridge in each room which was handy,...

A small (family run?) inn. Very simply appointed with just the basics. Towels, tiny soap and shampoo, microwave, refrigerator, small table with two chairs, very good TV, free Wi-Fi and very comfortable bed. Bathroom clean with very good shower. Front desk always on call if needed and friendly people. Just the right place for one or two nights. Very reasonably...
