Air travel is stressful—no matter how many hours in the air you have under your belt. In fact, The Telegraph named “getting to the airport” the second most stressful part of flying in their “20 Reasons Why Air Travel Is So Stressful” article. Portland’s increasing population puts more drivers on the road each year, often bringing traffic on major throughways to a halt during rush hour—and coincidentally, just when you need to get to the airport. Inclement weather can also slow your journey to and from the Portland Airport, or worse! You can easily avoid these travel stresses by staying at Nordic Inn & Suites, one of the best-valued motels near Portland Airport.
