A few miles from Portland, our Forest Grove hotel lets guests really get away from it all and enjoy the beauty of the Great Northwest. From Pumpkin Ridge Golf Course to Pacific University, there are many reasons guests stay at our Forest Grove hotel. The Cornelius region of Oregon is known for the great outdoors, and there are plenty of recreational opportunities nearby. Check out Tree to Tree Adventure Park for a fun-filled family vacation, or the world-renowned local golf course for a relaxing afternoon. Wine tours at the local vineyards and wineries are another big attraction. Our location, close to Pacific University, makes our Forest Grove hotel a favorite for budget-minded students or faculty who want a great value and clean, comfortable accommodations. Many weddings and events also take place nearby, and we are happy to accommodate groups to make your special day run as smoothly as possible. Hagg Lake is the perfect place for boating and fishing. The Warrior Dash, an epic race, also takes place near our Forest Grove hotel. The nearby town of Hillsboro offers all the charm of a smaller town. From Banks to Gaston, we're the last hotel before hitting the coast. If you'd like to experience the Oregon coast, it's just a couple of hours away, and well worth a day trip. Local companies like Henningsen Cold Storage Company, the Oregon Department of Forestry, ODoF, Intel, and Via Systems often send employees to our Forest Grove hotel. Wilco, Bentley Cabinetry, and Par Lumber are also popular local businesses that bring in out of town employees. If you're traveling for business, count on us to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. With an indoor pool, hot tub and sauna open 24-hours a day, the comfort of our guests is our main priority. Book a generous, clean room at Best Western University Inn and Suites and let us handle the rest.

    « Forest Grove Best Western is Great »

    The Staff really listens here. I called WHILE ON ROUTE.....no preplanning.....but they made it happen. My mother needed a Handicap Room on the main floor and we stayed over a weekend. The drive to the Oregon Coast is pleasant from here. JC

    « Loving it! »

    Can I just say that Melissa at the Front Desk is totally remarkable? This is my third stay at BW and it really does feel like home. This property is clean, spacious (including the parking), safe, and welcoming. Caveat - the beds are so comfy and soft that you may miss breakfast because you'll love sleeping in. All BWs should run their property like this one - it's reasonably priced and takes care of their guests. I'll be back very soon to see the staff whom I consider friends now!

    Best Western Employee Angela made our trip easy. She was so very helpful and human! Rooms were clean and comfortable, amenities were very nice for a smaller hotel. Will stay there again when I'm in town.

    « One of a kind Best Western- 10 Star Service! »

    From the service to the amenities, my experience was above and beyond any other experience I have had at the brand before. The rooms were clean, the staff was professional, and breakfast was delicious. I had my doggie with me and I was very impressed with the facilities and the pet policy. I will be staying at the Best Western University Inn and Suites again when I am in the area!

    « Be aware - pets are allowed and inappropriately put on the 2nd floor & other issues »

    We stayed her for our first time, and ultimately its a very "average" Best Western - a few flaws though. Location - just east of downtown Forest Grove - but too far to walk to - so location lacks as you must drive to get anywhere. Also, rooms in back overlook a trailer park (with a few barking dogs). On check in we saw people with dogs and asked for a quiet room - so were put on 2nd floor (no elevator). However, people across the hall had left a dog in their room that was barking excessively. I contacted the front desk who stated while they don't usually put animals on the 2nd floor they did this evening (which means they probably do it often). It was so bad we were moved to a "Suite" (which is the same exact size as a regular room - just a different layout and IMO pretty poor design (no window in sitting area - all lights are florescent) so wouldn't rec'd paying for it. So kudos for front desk agent trying to fix it, but it shouldn't have happened in the first place. Breakfast was typical generic morning buffet found in all BWs. Parking free and plenty. Pool indoors with jacuzzi - but not overly appealing. Gym laughable - 2 machines squashed into a large closet size space.

    « So much to like about this hotel, BUT.... »

    The staff were nice, the breakfast was great - especially the biscuits and gravy, and the beds were comfortable. I like that there is an electric outlet by each bed for charging devices and that there is no limit to the number of devices you can have on the Wifi in your room. The parking, WiFi, breakfast, and coffee in the room is all included. Plus coffee and tea available 24/7 and cookies available after 4pm. These are great things. However, there is no elevator. So be mindful that you are taking the stairs with all your bags. But the worst thing is that when I pulled back the covers on the bed I found a long black hair. At first I thought it could be the person's who made the bed. I did not call to ask for the sheets to be changed or tell any staff member about it. But then the next morning when I went to shower, I found two more long black hairs on the shower wall. I have very short brown hair and had not use the shower yet. So then I started wondering whether the shower and tub had been cleaned and if the sheets had been changed. This left me with a bad feeling about this hotel. I can forgive a lot but not lack of cleaning. Also, I was thinking of commenting about how great the breakfast was anyway, but when the breakfast ambassador tells you that they get a $50 bonus from the company if you mention them by name, it looses its shine. I'd be ok with a slip of paper being handed to me at check in telling me about the bonus if I receive great service. But when the person hands you a business card with their name on it when they tell you about the bonus, I feel it is more a solicitation. I'm not sure I would stay here again not knowing if the rooms are actually cleaned.

    « Great guest service »

    The housekeeping staff were amazing, they would come later in the morning so our children would not be woken up, always checked in when they saw us in the halls to see if w needed anything, and offered to make waffles when the breakfast room ran out. They were truly great.

    « Very satisfied »

    We stay at the Best Western in Forest Grove, OR several times a year while we are visiting family. It is always comfortable and the staff are customer oriented. From the time we arrive at the front desk to the time we check out, everyone is friendly and courteous. We enjoy the pool and hot tub. Rooms are quiet for the most part and the beds are extremely comfortable. It is a nice home away from home. The breakfasts are a step above the ones we typically get at hotels, and the attendant is always prompt and greets us like old friends. It's also nice to have coffee and cookies available in the afternoon when we arrive. Overall it feels like a well managed hotel and I would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Forest Grove.

    « Where's the elevator? »

    Staff was fantastic and the hotel is nice, but there is no elevator. If you don't want to carry your luggage upstairs (literally) ask for a room on the first floor. Getting out of the parking lot can be a little tricky due to traffic.

    « Much better than expected! »

    This was a very last minute stay so ended up at BW University. I had been told by several friends not to expect much from this property and was forewarned about no elevator, but was also told by other acquaintances that despite that, this hotel was great. So I was and am pleasantly surprised (I'm still here!) to find a clean, large hotel with decent amenities. Parking is ample and safe, well lit lot. Front desk personnel are nice and welcoming; it's so small that you feel safe as the front desk can see who comes & goes. I have a room on the second floor and it's large, overlooking the parking lot (this isn't a resort, folks). For the most part, it's quiet - the hotel can't be responsible for loud talking outside the door so other than some inconsiderate guests, I have no noise issue at all. Beds are comfortable and fresh, as is bathroom and its amenities. The tub is great! Deep, hot water, great pressure! Haven't done breakfast yet, but will do tomorrow. So it's safe to say I am very happy to be here and wouldn't hesitate recommending BW University.

    We had a nice stay. Check in was quick and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and were were provided enough toiletries. I enjoyed the make-up wipes too!! It would have been nice to have 4 large bath towels. We didn't eat breakfast this trip but it was nice to know we had a backup in case our plans didn't work. Check out was no trouble at all.

    1st time staying here. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was top notch as far as being updated and looking clean. No typical water damage that I see in many other hotels.

    While visiting friends booked a pet friendly room on a whim. Short stay, checked in a 10:00 PM and were back on the road by 9:00 A.M but a very nice facility. Nothing bad to note. There was a large empty lot just out the door to entertain the dogs and McMenamin's Grand Lodge is just down the road for additional walking and site seeing opportunities.

    « Greatest Staff in the West or Best of the Best Westerns! »

    Wonderfully attentive and friendly hotel staff will make your stay at this hotel a great experience, We came to the area for a family wedding and selected it because it was close by, but were thrilled at how GREAT it was! Rooms were great, everything works, extremely clean, staff is so attentive and the breakfast was wonderful. You could certainly spend a lot more money for a stay but I am not sure that you will find a better overall stay!

    « Well maintained, good value »

    Visited Portland at a busy time when most hotels were full and prices were high. The Best Western in Forest Grove was a bit of a drive, but a nice hotel at a reasonable price. Well maintained, clean, big rooms, cookies when you check in, nice people, etc. Breakfast was included but I didn't take advantage of it. Short walk to Mcmenamin's Grand Lodge which is a nice place for dinner.

    My family stayed here this summer. After an early am departure my daughter's realized they had left their swimsuits behind in the closet. We called the same day and were told nothing was turned in, so they weren't there. I followed-up with the location and again was told, no nothing was there. I emailed and never received a reply. Very disappointed.

    « Clean, Quiet, and Convenient »

    I stay at this hotel on a regular basis. It is clean, quiet, and I always get a great night sleep. Conveniently close to Pacific University. Only downfall is the internet is poor. If you need to connect, plan on going to a local business or to the college and use your student's.

    4
    « Very Nice Staff! »

    We have stayed here several times and have noticed that there may be some general updating needed, and certainly maintenance issues should be addressed. For instance, in our room, the shower curtain was in shreds - it was ripped and should be replaced. It's crazy that they allowed guests to stay in the room with a shower curtain in this condition. The bathroom fan was useless. It did nothing to keep the humidity down and the bathtub drain was so slow that when we were showering, we ended up standing ankle deep in water. We heard a lot of "thumping" from the room above us, which was annoying. The same breakfast was served every morning, but it was very good and there were a lot of choices. Mostly, we found the staff to be very helpful, friendly, and courteous. I just think that the lack of overall maintenance is showing in this aging hotel.

    « Superior Staff »

    I have never had such great service. They really care. The location was perfect for me. Only 6 minutes to Hillsboro and so much cheaper. It is a straight shot and traffic was not bad even during rush hour.

    « No elevator »

    very good place to stay. Only surprise was absence of an elevator which required lugging luggage up stairs.

Overall a great place to stay except for the minor inconvenience of no elevator.

    Great location if you're visiting the university. However, parents beware?this two story hotel does not have an elevator, which makes it an awful choice on move-in weekend. Be sure to request a first floor room. Otherwise, the hotel is clean and well-maintained. Freshly baked cookies available in the lobby in the afternoon are an unexpected treat.

    « Great stay with the kids. »

    We flew into Portland and drove down to this area to stay the night. We were beginning a road trip, but wanted to rest up before we got started. This place was affordable, clean, and friendly. One thing I really loved was the indoor pool. It was open 24/7! You never see that these days. Most hotel pools close at 6 or 8 or dusk. It was nice to be able to go out to eat dinner, and then get in the pool with the kids until late in the evening. The other nice thing was that we had the pool all to ourselves! The rooms were nicely sized and clean. No issues at all with the accommodations. The staff was friendly and ready to help with any questions at all. Overall it was a nice, enjoyable stay with no stress.

    Our child attends college in town and this is the best hotel near Pacific University. We had our dogs and they put us in a room on the first floor near the doors..it was wonderful! Breakfast was as expected. We only dealt with the lady at the front desk upon check-in. She was very helpful and kind. Hotel was more expensive than I expected for Forest Grove but if you want a hotel near Pacific University this is the best option.

    This hotel is in a great location when you have a child attend Pacific University. We have stayed many times now and the hotel is always consistent. Our last stay the lady who serves breakfast, believe her name was Kelly, went out of her way to provide us with the best service possible when we were arrived 30 mins after service had finished. She did not make us feel rushed and could not have been kinder.

    « Good place to stay but book on line »

    We stayed at this hotel because my husband was in a golf tournament near by. Because of this we wanted to stay three nights if he was to play in the practice round but we wanted to be able to cancel one night if he didn't play the practice round. So I made the reservations by phone - one night with a cancellation capability and two with no cancellation. They wanted to charge me $12.99 to book by phone but didn't tell me that until I had booked. Then when we did cancel, they wanted to charge me another $12.99 but again I wasn't informed of that until I tried to cancel. I protested vigorously and the charges were dropped. My advice it to try to book on line to avoid these charges and the hassle of protesting. The hotel itself was older but had been refurbished very nicely. It was clean, the rooms were large, the staff was very nice and the breakfasts were first class. Forest Grove seems a bit depressed economically and there seemed to be only one restaurant nearby for dinners. We did go to a neighboring town for dinner one night and that was just fine. I recommend this hotel but not the booking service.

    « One of the very best hotel we have been in. »

    This is one of the cleanest, friendliest hotels ever. We have travel all over the world and the USA and this is the best. Our host upon arrival was Erica, what a kind and gracious young lady who we found out is going to college to work in the dental field. a most pleasant lady. On leaving we checked out with Cindy, a wonderful person. She was very accommodating and kind. The food service was excellent and plenty to eat of a variety of most delicious delites. Our kids and grandchildren live in Forest grove and for sure we will be back to stay here once again.

    « Needs major improvements »

    The first thing I noticed upon arrival is that the front doors to the hotel are not handicapped friendly. They do not automatically open, and there is no button to push for handicapped accessibility. They are just the good old-fashioned, open by yourself kind of doors. Second, there is no elevator. That was a major shock. The third shock was the size of the bathroom. I have never seen anything so small. The door almost hits the toilet when opened, and it does hit the shower curtain rod when open. Pictures included. The fan, which turns on automatically when the light is on, is really just for show in my opinion. It does nothing. I promise that when you get out of the shower, the mirror will be completely fogged. The complimentary breakfast was really sub-par. We only ate it the first day because we hadn't planned enough time for anything else. We went elsewhere every additional day we stayed. With that said, the rooms were large and clean, and the hotel itself was well kept and clean. I happened to go back to my room one afternoon before housekeeping had arrived. When they did arrive, I told her to only deal with the bathroom. Roughly an hour and a half later another knock came at the door asking if everything was OK. Since I had just laid down to take a nap not only did I not understand the purpose of that, I found it was rather unnecessary and completely annoying. The hotel staff wasn't overly warm and friendly, but I wouldn't say they were rude either. Maybe the word I would choose is nonchalant. If you choose to stay at this hotel, keep all this in mind. If you are hauling a lot of luggage I would suggest asking for a room on the first floor. If I return to the area I will stay in Beaverton next time.

    Booked two nights to be near the Banks-Vernonia Bike trail. The room (and hotel) was clean and in great condition. Staff members were helpful and friendly. The (K) bed was firm and comfy for our taste. We chose a room upstairs, away from the stairs and away from road noise -- room was quiet. The typical in-room air conditioner was not as loud as other hotels that we've stayed in -- so we were able to sleep well. They put out warm cookies in the afternoon. I would stay there again if we were in the area.

    « Best, but only if you don't have bad knees »

    Although the hotel and the room were nice, because I have bad knees and because the type of room I wanted was only available on the second floor, the fact that they didn't tell us that there were no elevators was a real issue, both checking in and out.

    This was as close to being a "10" hotel as I have stayed at in a long time. All security features worked, quiet(outside and room to room) , wi-fi was quite good, most all employees dealt with were very good, exception being a morning breakfast hostess was not up to standard(abrupt and not to friendly especially as where to place unmarked containers of waste after meal. I am probably a little picky but when compared to the rest of the facility not up to standard. Yes this was a place to stay, great service and if you can use city streets not freeway very easy to get around.

    I was surprised to find no food except for breakfast and a couple of vending machines - so, if you need to eat in the evening or have a quiet drink in the bar, you'll need to take a walk. There's a small pool, sauna, hot tub and exercise room. Otherwise, pretty standard. I used public transport: there's a bus stop nearby. One way connects to the TriMet train terminus and that'll take you to the airport for $2.50 ...you cannot argue with that!

    « Motel is in great condition, rooms clean »

    We stayed here in the BW in Forest Grove because we flew into Portland and were on our way to the coast. The motel is in really good shape, clean, friendly staff, and nice rooms. We had 2 Queens. As an early bird I liked the 24 hr coffee maker -- a machine that does the coffee, ... not some old stuff from the day before. At 6 am they started breakfast (at the time of my visit hot and cold breakfast, nicely cared for fresh apples and bananas, yoghurt, waffles, oats, etc. -- should be doing the job for any kind of traveler. Motel is accessible via several entrances including the lobby. I have no complaints and would stay here again. On a side note: the fitness room is just equipped with a tread mill, and one other machine, I think a step trainer but I am not sure. I personally was looking for some weights or that type of machine but that's missing. My only point where I see improvement. Forest Grove is pretty tiny and not many restaurants in the area. Pizza Schmizza seems to be the place to go if you like pizza but we didn't this time. There's a Safeway supermarket close-by if you want to buy your own dinner. So, yes, I would stay here again but the reason for us was that we did want to leave Portland downtown on our arrival day in order to have a good start to our coast trip the next morning. We spent the day in Portland downtown and cam to Forest Grove for the night. I f you have a doggie,... we saw several at the hotel that day and they are pet friendly.

    « Unwelcome surprise in room »

    This was our first time staying at the BEST WESTERN University Inn & Suites. We were in Forest Grove in order for my daughter to register as a freshman at Pacific University, with another reservation set for her move-in date in August. Our arrival was on Sunday, and the hotel seemed to be about 1/3 to 1/2 full. Our check-in was smooth and we were given a room on the first floor. There were two rolling carts for self-service luggage transport just inside the door of the lobby. A small seating area with a fireplace, coffee bar and an open door to the breakfast room were all visible, as well as the indoor pool and spa. We walked to our room and passed the vending and ice machines on the first floor, as well as a very small fitness room with a bike and treadmill. The property appeared to be clean - the pool room especially. When we entered our room we noticed a heavy, cleaning product scent, but everything seemed in order. When my daughter went to see about adjusting the fan speed on the AC unit she noticed dog poo on the floor. ( Maybe the cleaning person could smell something, but couldn't find the source?) Having three dogs ourselves, we weren't too freaked out by this, but I decided to take a photo or two and mention it (versus removing it) at the front desk on our way out to get somethng to eat. I showed my photos to the front desk clerk who apologized and immediately offered a new room. I told her we'd not eaten all day and were going to get something, then we'd be back to switch rooms. Upon returning the same clerk apologized again and gave me the keys to a new room. We returned to the original one to gather our things and moved to the new room. Upon checking it out we found it was missing a hair dryer and nightlight (the other room had them), so I mentioned it and received the items before tucking in for the night. Once in the new room we settled in and slept well. We kept the AC's fan running all night for the white noise, which I think helped a lot as the hotel is on one of the main streets running through Forest Grove. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- During our visit I noticed these things: 1. The bed was very comfortable with lots of squishy pillows, cozy sheets and a light comforter. 2. Having a microwave, good sized (3.2 cu' - guessing here) fridge, ironing board and iron were all really nice. 3. The 32" LCD TV was OK, but the feed to it (satellite or cable) was coming through as analog versus digital. I found that curious. The picture wasn't very sharp. Maybe a setting needed tweaking, but it was like that on both the TV in the first room and the second one. 4. The AC/heating unit worked well, and we liked the white noise of the fan on all the time feature. 5. Despite being next to the breakfast room, we didn't hear much noise first thing in the morning. Good sound proofing other than when the shower upstairs was turned on. 6. The bathroom had a phone on the wall. Not something you see much these days. 7. Desk and chair, but no table with chairs in the room. The lamp on the desk has two AC outlets, but no USB ports in the room to charge devices so bring your own! 8. No alarm clock, but the light on the front of the microwave showed the time. We used our iPhone alarm so it wasn't a big deal. 9. The room furnishings seemed to be a bit more dated than the breakfast room and entry. 10. The hot/cold adjustments to the water in the tub were a little tricky to figure out something more than freezing, but not scalding. I was sucessful, but my daughter never did get it figured out. 11. The free breakfast was very generous. Scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, hard boiled eggs, several kinds of fruit, waffles (make your own), yogurt, and more. The breakfast room was clean and housed about 10 tables, a TV and a computer workstation available to guests. 12. The indoor pool and spa were very clean. I didn't bring my suit, but if you do visit this property, you probably should! 13. The parking lot is small and tight. If you have a large vehicle or are towing a trailer, you may find it is tough to park here. 14. There are two floors and NO elevator! 15. There is a loose tile in front of the coffee bar in the lobby. I stepped on it and felt it wobble under my feet. Super Glue should fix that... I'm just sayin'! ---------------------------------------------------------------------- In conclusion... Finding dog poo in my room wasn't good. The move to another room was an appropriate response, however the hotel's customer service could have been better in offering to help us move rooms. (Maybe she was there alone though?) I did ask the front desk clerk if I could expect an adjustment to our bill and she said she would mention it to her manager who would have to make that determination. I was asked upon check-out about my stay (by a new front desk clerk) and told her about the incident. She said that she had seen the note on it and she too apologized for it. 24 hours passed before I received an email receipt of my bill for this stay. My credit card had been charged the full amount. Later I received a confirmation email of my pending August stay with the hotel in an amount quoted at the time of the reservation over a month ago. A few minutes later, another email with a 20% discounted rate for the August visit. About an hour later I received yet another email from the hotel's manager explaining that a 20% reduction in my future stay had been taken off for the inconvenience, with phone numbers if I cared to contact her. I never received any direct communication from the manager, nor did I receive and discount on the stay as completed. Now I find myself wondering if I should cancel my discounted stay in August and book elsewhere? This hotel's location makes it ideal for my purposes in Forest Grove, and I had hoped to build a long standing relationship with the hotel for future visits. It is the nicest option (except for maybe McMenamins Grand Lodge which is a bit funky for us with shared bathrooms...) for places to stay around the area and I find myself considering them. In truth I think that if I hadn't been wondering: "What else didn't get cleaned?" all night long, and that if my current bill had received an adjustment instead of a stay I've yet to take, I'd be happier with my stay at the BEST WESTERN University Inn & Suites. The bottom line is that I give it a 3 out of 5 rating based upon the perks of the comfortable bed, quiet room, and excellent free breakfast. If we'd not found 'ugh' in our room, I'd probably boost that rating. NOTE: I did have to shop around for the best rate - using the BW website and calling the property directly to ask about a Pacific University rate, I actually found the best rate was the BW site for a non-refundable purchase. Even at a discounted rate, the prices can be high for this hotel at peak times when Pacific is in session.

Also, we have two high school friends who live in Forest Grove, who we have not seen in years, and with the help from the staff, were able to quickly find their home and spend quality time with them. The breakfast featured an in house cook who was most gracious and helpful. Her breakfast was real quality and everyone visiting enjoyed the breakfast, which featured a wide variety of choices.

Updated rooms with premium linens and towels, a large indoor pool and spa, even a sauna. How awesome is that!

    Hotel staff was friendly and inviting. My room had a strange smell and it gave me a headache the entire time I was there. It actually made it very difficult to sleep. I asked a co-worker who was also staying at the hotel if their room smelled and she said it did. I didn't have a trashcan in the room, so I put it in the sink in the living room, thinking the maid would see it and would give me a trashcan and take care of it. She didn't and I still didn't have a trashcan until the night before I left. I ended up throwing my trash out myself prior to getting the trashcan. I wouldn't stay at a BW again if it were up to me.

After an awesome hotel guest found and returned it to Jordan at the front desk he went out of his way to return it to me in tact and quickly! In this day and age what an awesome reminder of all that is good in life and humanity! Best Western University Inn and Suites hires top quality, honest and ethical employees that only add to the overall wonderful experience of staying there. Room, service, breakfast, cleanliness and staff A+++. Highly recommend this hotel!

    One of the best hotels I have stayed at they do not have a elevator so if you can't do stairs request a room on the 1floor thay have a great breakfast and a hot tub that the water is hot not Luke warm like most hotels the room was nice and clean and as we had a suite we had a TV in the bed room and one in the sitting room don't for get to ask if they offer any discounts on the room when booking they won't offer them you have to ask the only thing was they didn't have any information book or paper that have the TV channels listed or near by place's to eat at or shop at they do have a Walmart near by that you can walk or drive to it is only a few blocks away

    « Book early because it can get very busy and you will pay more later »

    Great location for visiting our grandchildren in Forest Grove and a few came over for a swim. The room was large and clean with a small refrigerator, microwave, desk (free Wi-Fi) and an easy chair. The free breakfast had quite a variety and plenty of nutrition to get you through to a late lunch. We had a couple of glitches through the main desk, but the person was new. We have stayed here several times before without any issues. You can pay $150 for 2 in a King bed. You can pay even more for a room with a Jacuzzi.

    « Better than a Hillsboro hotel »

    Convenient to get toand from if you are in the area for Hillsboro business. For the value, it far exceeds any of the other chain properties in Hillsboro that all overprice themselves because the IT companies are usually paying for it. Great sports bar with very quality food and comfortable pricing just a couple of blocks away and...again...much better than the chain stuff you're engulfed with when staying in an overpriced metro area.

    « Absolutely wonderful staff and facilities. »

    I have generally good luck with Best Westerns, but this place's staff really stood out, from the housekeeping crew, breakfast staff to the desk staff. They were all so helpful and friendly and made the stay very pleasurable. The breakfast is excellent and the staff was great, especially Kelly, who joyfully went out of her way to make breakfast great and help with everything that she could. The building was well maintained and tastefully decorated. We didn't have an opportunity to try the indoor pool or hot tub but they looked great too. Will definitely stay again if in the area.

    « Poor Value »

    What was explained as a short staff resulted in a below par stay, in which the room was not cleaned and product not replaced after the first night, the gym restroom was unclean and the paper towel dispenser broken so that the roll sat in a puddle of water on the sink. Front office staff was either unable or unwilling to offer compensation for the inconvenience.

    « Great Place while visiting Pacific University »

    Great value for the price. Free internet, parking and breakfast. Comfortable stay. I would recommend staying on the second floor in case you are sensitive to 'heavy feet' above. The exercise room is very small (treadmill, bicycle, and a bench to do crunches. We made use of the pool, Jacuzzi and sauna.

    « Wonderful Service! »

    My wife researched on line for a hotel close to where I would need to be for a business meeting. There were very few options in this remote location but I was so thankful she chose this one. They told me there would be a continental breakfast but they had everything to choose from, eggs, bacon, waffles, etc. And it was actually very good. The staff was kind and attentive and the rooms were clean and well tended. I would stay here again.

    Be aware when booking this property that there is NO elevator to the second floor. My husband has trouble hearing and did not understand when we checked in that we would be on the second floor with no elevator but 20 steps straight up. It was challenging.

    « Christmas Surprise »

    My husband And I made an unexpected trip to see family when my grandmother became ill just before Christmas. We were unable to stay with family due to the holiday and some "septic" issues, so we needed an affordable room that would also be comfortable for my 6'3" husband with a back injury! Kaylee found us an incredible rate, made sure we had everything we needed and made a difficult situation so much easier! Her kindness and exceptional customer service enabled us to have a truly Merry Christmas- the housekeeping staff made sure our room was clean and well stocked and our room was lovely! So happy with our experience here and will definitely be back!

    My husband, step son and I stayed at the Best Western University Inn & Suites in Forest Grove for a family get-together. We enjoyed the friendly service and comfortable bed at the hotel. I was especially pleased with how quiet the room was. We will definitely stay here again.

    « What I needed »

    The room was just what I needed. The staff were very friendly. The internet was faster than what I'm used to in hotels, that was nice. I found the bed to be comfortable but was on the soft side. The breakfast was nothing special but it was fine. My only complaint is that the running water was quite loud through the pipes in the walls which was a bit annoying when I was trying to fall asleep.

    I cant say enough good things about BEST WESTERN University Inn & Suites, Forest Grove, OREGON. Everyone was helpful and kind. They made my family, my kids and I feel very welcome and at home. The check in was very easy. My wife asked if we can check out late and they took care of us. This is the best Best Western in the country.

    « Clean, Quiet, Simple - Great Experience »

    Traveled with my family for the 5A state championship in Hillsboro, but found almost all of the hotels in the area were full. Found this little gem in Forest Grove, and enjoyed it far more than we expected to. The place was impeccably clean, and the staff was excellent. My kids loved the pool, and the hot tub was great as well - both very clean as well. I would absolutely stay here again. The city of Forest Grove was pretty cool, and access to OR 26 was easy, and quick trip to Hillsboro. Cheers!

    « Nice hotel. »

    This Best Western is in a little town in Oregon. I think it's the only name brand hotel there. The front desk staff were very caring and helpful. They even upgraded me to a queen suite. Really nice looking big indoor pool that I did not have the pleasure of using. Breakfast had plenty of items and was kept well stocked. I would reccomend this hotel to my co-workers and friends if they needed a place to stay while in the area.

    The staff at this location are extremely friendly and go out of their why to ensure you are happy. Even the young lady who handled breakfast was so polite. Everyone was the perfect with speaking nice conversation, providing information and recommendations (outside the hotel). I would have stayed longer if I'd been in the area.

    « Serves a purpose...close to Pacific University »

    I stayed here for Pacific University Family Weekend. I personally did not find the property up to the standards of other Best Western Hotels. This is actually an older hotel though the owners have kept it well maintained. The Pros--- Close to Pacific University Large Room The Cons- If the hotel is full, so is the parking lot. 2 story building and no elevator which is a problem if you have a heavy suitcase. There was a lot of empty space in the King Bed room, maybe so they can bring in rollaways? A comfortable sofa which makes into a bed makes more sense then leaving a space the size of two rollaways unused. Though there is plenty of room for luggage! There is nothing fresh about breakfast---everything is full of preservatives and artificial ingredients. I have food intolerances and the only thing I could eat was an english muffin and peanut butter. The jams are loaded with high fructose corn syrup, as is the syrup. The eggs, well lets just say I question whether there is an egg in the mix, as the packaging has a long list of ingredients. This hotel is fairly expensive for a Best Western, though when you are almost the only game in town, you can charge what the market will bear. I booked through my husband's Corporate discount website and the hotel would not give me Best Western Points. Typically on arrival our account is credited. Smoking is allowed outside the front door, and one must walk through the smokers to enter and exit the hotel. And, the employees smoke outside which means there is usually someone outside smoking. Would I stay here again, probably as it isn't bad, and it is very convenient to the school.

    « Pacific University Family Weekend »

    Great time in Forest Grove for Family Weekend. Love to stay @ Best Western, as it is close to the University and the rooms are very nice. The breakfast provided is great and makes a nice quick bite to eat before getting out to explore for the day. Thank you for another wonderful stay!

    « Credit Card Charged Even though Hotel Shows Reservation Cancelled »

    Booked through Booking.com, needed to cancel, have cancellation email from Booking.com. This hotel charged my card for two nights anyway and now I am caught in the middle of these two Giant corporations. The charges for two nights exceed $225 and neither company will give me an immediate refund. I have to wait at least five to seven additional days to satisfy booking.com policy of giving best western adequate time to response and reverse their error. My money is held hostage by both parties. Gotta be a better way to reserve a hotel room!

    « Best Option in Forest Grove »

    Stayed for a wedding weekend, chose it over the McMenamin's next door to ensure a private bathroom. The hotel is fairly updated and clean. The breakfast was good and had more than enough options. The staff were very nice but seemed understaffed. On one day my room was not serviced until nearly 7 PM. The plumbing also needs updating...my shower and sink did not drain properly. There is not much around, so probably your best bet in the area. It is on a very busy road so cannot walk to anything directly.

    « Best Of the West (pun intended) »

    I stayed here w/2 adult sisters & my mother (in the same room!) for 5 days; as we were out West for a family wedding (in Forest Grove, OR) We all flew in from different parts on the East Coast (so we don't know the area) & right from our arrival we were welcomed by friendly, helpful & courteous staff. Each day we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast, extra little "snacks" they offered & lots of the staff's time and effort helping us find places to "tour", eat & anything we needed to make our stay pleasant & enjoyable. The hotel is clean, updated and has a fantastic team of employees. I (We) would definitely recommend this hotel.

    The room had a improperly working toilet. The outside heat pump unit was very dirty. poor price fro an poor motel. location is not within the portland oregon area and still the price was extremely high. Will not stay here again. Will be calling Best Western headquarters customer service and complaining about this motel.
