The description is inflated !
Pro: The location is great. Parking is easy close to the house. You can use the laundry washer and dryer. The bathroom (though not huge as stated in the description) is much better than the room itself. The host is responsive. The place is clean. Con: A "suite" evokes a room that feels spacious and rather luxurious. You will not get those feelings there. It is an awkward room in the back of a basement. The openings, on the ground level, are so small that they can hardly be called windows. It is not suitable for more than 2 people sleeping in the same bed: the sofa is highly uncomfortable to sleep on, there is no door between the sleeping area and the rest of the room, and the eating table is tiny with 2 chairs. The furniture is definitely not fancy. There is a fridge and a microwave, the sink is outside of the room. The sleeping area can't reasonably be called a bedroom. It is just slightly wider than the bed itself, so that it is hard to access the wardrobe (even though I am thin). This accommodation is not suitable for people who are not fit or have a wide frame. A small part of the room's ceiling is too low for an average-sized man. Overall: considering the price, I felt taken advantage of by the business owner. I wouldn't advise a friend to stay there.

BEST DEAL in Portland. A private suite for less than the price of a hotel room.
