Trip Report Portland Home Exchange - Two Weeks

Jump to last reply

This is our 19th home exchange, our first in Portland, Oregon. We arrived here about 3 days ago, driving 16 or so hours from Southern California. We broke the trip into three days, driving Route 5, a fairly tedious route for the first 6 hours or so, breaking the first night in Patterson, and the second evening in Ashland, staying both nights at Best Westerns.

The Patterson Best Western was pretty dismal. The sheets felt dirty and the bath tub was definitely grimy. I complained to the management and they sent us fresh sheets which WE changed and we used rubber flip flops in the shower. The next morning, we were offered a 10% discount for our inconvenience after we reminded them about the dirty sheets, when I told them that we changed the sheets, they asked us politely what we thought was a decent discount and we accepted $30 off on the $80 plus tax room. It felt fair to us.

The next night we stayed at another BW in Ashland; I believe it was $120 inc tax, but the room was immaculate. We had a nice dinner at the Dragon Fly in town. It's a pretty little town with lots of tourists because of the Shakespeare festivals, though I also saw that Pride and Prejudice was also being performed, so it's not strictly the Bard.

We arrived in Portland around 5 or so, having made a mistake on programing our GPS, though we did not go very far out of our way.

to be continued. . .
