Well out of no where in the afternoon, we get a manager of the property banging on our door. Claiming the maid took pictures of herb in our room, without our permission might I add. In Oregon where its legal to have weed same as a cigarette we were treated like common thugs for being a medical marijuana patient.

When manager came up to bang on our door he told us literally we had 5 minutes to get out or he was calling the cops on us. We told him go ahead because we had not smoked in the room and were breaking absolutely no Oregon state laws. We smoked outside the room not in it.

This was on a friday, he could care a less if we had to sleep on a bench that night all the hotels in town were booked up. He tells us if we leave right away, he will refund us our money. O ya he refunded us for our second night stay, but then as were driving away he puts a $250 dollar smoking fee on our credit card. He never even mentioned this once when I was talking to him, I had to demand he give me a receipt because he tried force us out of the room and never refund us a dollar for the full day we just missed out on our hotel. I had to threaten him that I was going to call the cops on him to get refunded for our room. But then the SCAM ARTIST manager waits for us to drive away and he recharges the card $250 dollars. ARE YOU KIDDING ME, who refunds you then charges you when you turn your back.

Worst experience of my life, if you smoke outside like a normal person do not go to this hotel. We never once smoked in the hotel room. Just for having herb on us they gave us a smoking fee, really do you give guest a smoking fee for having a pack of cigarettes, no I don't think so.
Why do you treat pot smokers like common day criminals, for having medicine in our room. I am a medical marijuana patient, and you kicked me out on the street because I smell better than a poisonous cigarette. If we would of been allowed to stay till our normal checkout the room would have smelt like absolutely nothing. Straight SCAM.

I will never stay at an Econo lodge again, this one is a straight scam, and by the way they don't tell you its on a busy intersection with construction and you can barley sleep its so loud all night. Or that the so called continental breakfast is a piece of toast. I would give them negative stars if I could. Straight scam artist stuck in the 1940's, the world is a changing, its like this hotel forgot they are located in a recreational herb state, or maybe its just something they do to earn another $250 dollars of your credit card. STAY AWAY, THE MANAGER WILL ROB YOU.

This is a very central location right in downtown, by OHSU, Portland State, and the park blocks. It's small so it's easy to get in and out of quickly, and it does have parking, although it costs $10 a day. Some of the more expensive hotels in the area charge $30, so this is not a bad deal, and you can see your car from most rooms as opposed to the valet service of the more expensive hotels. Econo Lodge is cheaper than most downtown hotels and is right across the street from a really good bank of food carts. The staff are nice, and the exterior is newly painted etc., but this hotel does fill up especially in high season when students come to town in the fall. If this is full, two hotels that are in the same price range and in the same area are Downtown Value Inn and Travel Lodge, Portland City Center. They also fill up, so it's probably best to make reservations on-line or call. Sometimes availability on-line does not match what's really going on at the hotel, so it might be worth it to call.

This downtown motel is by far the best deal in the city center, and the friendly management are an added bonus. The whole place has been remodeled recently, and the rooms are kept in immaculate shape. All are equipped with irons and ironing boards and there’s a coin-operated laundry facility on site. Wi-Fi is free and they serve a complimentary breakfast every morning from 7-10 am and while there’s nowhere to sit and eat in the lobby, the rooms are spacious enough to eat in. For lunch and dinner, you have a wide array of Portland’s famous food carts just across the street. Parking is $10/day (a steal in downtown Portland) and Portland State University, and the streetcar, are both within a few minutes’ walk.

Not bad! It is a good location, near public transsit routes. The staff are friendly, the rooms are relatively inexpensive, and the accomodations are clean and comfortable. I would go back again on my next business trip.

..Just a plain, old motel, the Fourth Ave is surprisingly affordable for its downtown location. I once rented ten rooms there for grad students at a conference, and everybody loved that it's a block from Max light rail, Portland State U, and good food.
