Interaction with Guests
We hope to meet you during your stay!
Come hang out at our guest house and wander Alberta Street...it's a cornucopia of funky and independent shops, galleries, bars & restaurants. We've got world famous pie, 5 kinds of Thai, an amazing tea shop, vegan bakery, co-op and guitar shop within a few blocks. Catch a flick at the Kennedy School or live music at the Alberta Street Pub or Alberta Rose Theater.
Every Last Thursday, we have a freewheeling art festival on the street. Last Thursday is a rich tradition where it's free to vend and attend. You'll see washboard bands, teen violinists, Native American drumming circles, fab art and funky attire right outside our front door!
We are on several major bus lines and one block from a designated biking boulevard. By car we are 10 minutes from the airport, Lloyd Center Mall, Convention Center and Light Rail and less than 15 minutes to downtown Portland.
Welcome to Inn Alberta Arts! Please feel free to make use of the shared kitchen, common area and front porch. Come and go as you please. Be mindful that you may be sharing the room with others and treat them with respect. Let us know if you have any special needs and we will do our best to accommodate them! We prefer to keep the house pet free, as many travelers have allergies. If you need assistance, please call, text or email me at any time.
Lots of communication, when we needed it.
Upgraded our accommodations to meet our specific needs.
Neighborhood was delightful - eateries, healthy grocery store, cycling center, bookstore... what else is there?
The room was exactly as described, and it is in a great location. There are restaurants and shops within a few blocks. I was able to find parking half a block away.
I can definitely recommend this home to any traveler looking for a casual place to stay. I will be back.
Although I never met Rochelle, the house was very tidy and in an awesome location. The beds are a little uncomfortable, but that's be expected in a bunk house.
Rochelle answered all of my questions and dealt with my two reservation changes. The neighborhood is awesome and I wish I had more time to go exploring. The description of the space was exactly as it was and I was incredibly happy with it. I was the only one staying in the bunk room which was nice because I got to go to bed early and have the gorgeous place to myself.
I came to Portland for 4 nights to attend a conference and chose this hostel due to location and price.
Though there were some communication errors Rochelle was quick to fix and clarify things and for that I am grateful.
Everything was clean and running well and I felt that my belongings and self were safe (which they were).
My overall experience was excellent and I won't hesitate to book again when I venture back into this quirky little city.
House was very clean and the other tenants were friendly. An excellent value.

“Take only memories, leave only footprints.” – Chief Seattle
I've lived all over Portland, but after planting roots in the Alberta Arts district a nearly a decade ago, I can't imagine living anywhere else. Even in a city known for 'different', Alberta pushes the free- and forward-thinking envelope just a little bit further.
Our house is in a great spot--so close to fab food, art, yoga, and shopping for all budgets. (Don't forget to stop off for a slice of Random Order pie!) We've got our own local bike rental and public transportation options within 1 to 2 blocks.
Portland is rich in beautiful natural spots and diverse cultural offerings.Must visits on my list include the Gorge waterfalls and Powells books - the ultimate planetary bookstore (at least in this galaxy).
I think one of the best parts of traveling is feeling comfortable wherever you land. When I'm on the road, I steer toward cheerful, friendly spots with just the right mix of privacy and community. Living in England cemented my fondness for guest houses. Those happy stays in cozy homes primed me to seek out similar lodgings when I travel.
I love being able to open our house to the fabulous folk who find their way to us. I look forward to meeting you and hearing some of your stories. Welcome!
