Close to everything yet, miles from it all

  • 5 of 5

This property is close to everything with easy access, yet so private and quiet that it feels miles from it all. And better than pictured, the photos do not do it justice.

I spent a few days here during a heat wave in Portland. The suite is cozy and comfortable with a beautiful view, comfy bed and central a/c.

It was the perfect size and decorated beautifully. Rather than going outside into the heat to sit in the outdoor hot tub, I stayed inside, lit several of the supplied candles, opened a bottle of wine, and relaxed in my private Jacuzzi tub. I enjoyed my stay here so much that I extended my stay for 4 more days. Sara was very attentive and responsive.

Highly recommended.

Beautiful View of the Lake

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay at the Sweet Suites. The view of the lake from our room was amazing and really made us feel like we were on vacation. We had the all the amenities we needed. There was a small frig and microwave. There were even plates and utensils. I would definitely stay here again. We walked around the beautiful garden. Thanks for a great stay.

Not what I was expecting.

  • 1 of 5

I did not stay after arriving. After a long day of driving, we arrived late in the evening very tired. The place was so unbelievably hot, you could not stay there. It had been a day in the 90's in Portland and it felt every bit of that in the property. We walked in, felt how hot it was and how small the place was, the parking was horrible and just turned around and walked out. I tried contacting the owner and no answer. Finally she emailed me back and said she was there and it was fine. It WAS NOT!!! I only wish it was fine because I truly wanted to stay there. But there was no way I was going to spend 2 days in a place so small and if the A/C did not work. I have contacted her to have her refund my money because it was not as explained and she will not respond to my messages. If you like small places with bad parking and it is not hot, you may like it. I DID NOT!!!

Relaxing stay on the river!

  • 4 of 5

We had a relaxing time at the sweet suite. This is a nice room with a comfortable bed that is close enough to a window overlooking the property and the river. The location is close to Portland and we spent one of the days just walking around NW 23rd in Portland shopping and enjoying the neighborhood and then got some take out from Red Onion to enjoy dinner back in the room. Was nice that there were multiple places to sit on the deck or property to enjoy the scenery.

My only "complaint" would be that the walls are thin (the first night there the folks in the other unit had some kids and they were very loud) and the parking can be tricky.

Owner's Response: Thank you Gary for your review, You are the first ever to say that the walls are thin! Perhaps because we so very rarely have noisy children. We don't get many children, and when we do, they are very well behaved. I am glad you enjoyed your stay, and found all the cozy private areas on the property.
