I traveled to Portland from Northern CA with my boyfriend and two of my stepchildren [ages 11 and 17]. Mark's place was great - easy access from the freeway, very easy to find and check in. The unit is completely updated and modern, but comfortable and felt fresh, clean and spacious despite its smaller size - it was a welcome home base for us, especially after a series of mediocre budget hotels on the way up. The kids stayed in the living room on the futons and my boyfriend and I stayed in the bedroom on the full sized bed - both my boyfriend and I are taller than average and were worried about the smaller bed, but it was totally comfortable. We didn't take the train while we were there, but it is very close and it was nice to know that was an easy option for us to get into city center if we wanted to [we ended up driving in pretty easily]. Target and Safeway were close by, we comfortably cooked at least one meal every day and did laundry twice. We barely even noticed the tenants in the main house. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone considering a trip to Portland!
