A classic, affordable motel experience in an industrial part of town.. The Scene The hotel is located in an industrial and somewhat barren area between I-5 and the airport, but there aren't a lot of accommodations so close to the Expo Center (not to be confused with the downtown Convention Center) and the Portland International Raceway. The rooms are clean and spacious, offering free cable and free local calls. Some units also have hot tubs. There is truck parking galore, and a choice of fast food restaurants nearby.
