Portland is a great city full of culture, but it really shines because of all the natural beauty in the area. When you stay in Portland motels, you have a lot of great places to see and plenty of good support. Since many motels offer shuttle services, you can get to Forest Park or the Columbia River Gorge far more easily. Even getting to your rental car company is easier this way. When you want to see a show at the Gerding Theater in the Armory Building, a motel's concierge is there to help. If you like a spacious bed, king size beds are almost certainly available. You can even have a bed that's easily accessible if you are physically challenged and have difficulty with some beds. With architecture such as the Pittock Mansion and The Grotto, which is a natural sanctuary influenced by human hands, a motel is a great base from which you can see it all.
