South facing rooms at Holiday Inn Express Portland SE have the best views, as they overlook a bend on the Clackamas River, right next to the I-205 road bridge, but all accommodations are clean, comfortable, nicely decorated and equipped with a refrigerator/microwave. There are several riverside parks within walking distance. The hotel is part of a shopping/dining area (including Safeway supermarket) near the 82nd Drive exit of the freeway, 12 miles south of downtown Portland. Both hot breakfast buffet and evening receptions are complimentary. For relaxation the Holiday Inn Express offers an indoor pool, hot tub, fitness center and sauna.
