About

Nothing fancy about Hostess House, which is a comtemporary home in a mellow neighborhood, yet has been open since 1988. This tells you that hostess, Mill Laughlin, is doing something right and customer satisfaction is assured! "Hostess House is a clean, clutter-free, quiet, economy inn where guests are pampered, coddled, and well fed - gourmet style," says Milli. "Our place is not for the conspicuous consumer but for the lower-maintenance person who is looking for quality accommodations with a smile." As a result you can expect a friendly welcome, an inviting night's rest, and awaken to a scrumptious breakfast. City-close and country-quiet. Private baths (one with handicap equipment)with many in-room amenities. Remote control basic cable TV/VCR/DVD and free wireless internet access. Smoke and perfume free. Free off street parking. Close to I-5, I-204 and I-84. You'll enjoy the City of Roses viewing an incredible rose garden, hiking the nature trails, visiting historic sights and museums, touring wineries, golfing, or after a day of shopping relax on the spacious deck. You can sip a cup of tea while viewing a deep, terraced backyard before enjoying one of Portland's fine restaurants.

Felt like Home!

Millie was a perfect hostess! Fantastic cook with great stories. I highly recommend Hostess House! You will NOT be disappointed!


A B&B in Portland to remember

4.6 on January 09, 2014

This bed and breakfast is a comfortable home tucked away on a quiet street with a huge back yard which is spectacularly landscaped. It is just minutes from Portland's international airport and easy to find, even in the early winter darkness. The breakfast was healthy food and so visually appealing that I took a picture of it..


Amazing Breakfast

4.0 on December 17, 2013

Every morning, the hostess served the delicious breakfast. We stayed 1 week but we were treated with tasty foods! Very good services. The bad point was we gained weights. Thanks for the great hospitality.


Thank you, Milli!

Milli, the proprietor was just excellent --- welcoming, very helpful in general and especially about all things Portland (where and how to navigate the bus system, restaurants.) She made a special shopping trip in order to provide me with non-fat milk. I was able to use the refrigerator, to reheat things in the microwave, etc. It felt like staying with a gracious aunt. My room was lovely --- both clean and quiet. The windows opened for fresh air and looked out over a wide expanse of grass and trees. The location was fine, near the airport and close to public transportation. It was easy and convenient to get to and from the places I needed and wanted to be in Portland.


Nice place, but a bit different

2.8 on September 21, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights. The room was cozy (a nice word for small), the TV was okay (no cable access), and breakfast was unique. So, if you're looking for a place to rest at night in peace and you're not into a big breakfast, then the Hostess House will work for you. The hostess, Milli, is very nice and can keep a conversation going during breakfast. The house is kept around 75 degrees F, a bit warm for me. The house smells like moth balls in some places, but the bathroom is very clean, as is the entire house. So, while I can't point to anything and say, "This was bad," I likewise can't point to anything outstanding. Just an average place at an average price.
