Great location, reasonable rates
Posted Mar 19, 2017
I attended conferences both at the Doubletree Inn and the Oregon Convention Center, and Motel 6 was half way between the two--an easy walk in either direction. It's also on the Red Line (MAX light rail) that runs to the airport. Other light rail lines run past the motel on Holladay, and the rumbling of these trains begins around 5 a.m.--if that bothers you. The motel is also located very close to the A and B streetcar loops that serve downtown.
My room was basic but adequate. Laminate floor instead of carpet (not a bad feature in a budget motel, where carpets can be gross). Fridge, microwave, TV, phone. No bedside alarm clock. One chair (for the desk). Odd hanging space, high up near the ceiling, behind the panel on which the TV is mounted. A short person would need to stand on the chair to reach the hangers (see attached photos). Nowhere else to store clothes. One thin blanket on the bed. Not a single hook to hang clothing--not even in the bathroom. Only two small, thin towels--no extras provided. No bath mat (I stood on one of the towels). Soap but no shampoo. An empty tissue dispenser. Very loud extractor fan in the bathroom came on automatically with the bathroom light. A loose plastic toilet seat. Aside from a little mold in the ceiling corners above the shower, I saw no obvious dirt. I did not request extra towels, blanket, etc.
