Many of the airports in the United States have stopped offering luggage storage in recent years because of security reasons.
Luckily, Portland International Airport isn’t one of them.
Instead of having to drag your bags around with you all day, take them to Portland Provisions, which is located at the north end of the baggage claim near carousel 10. They offer cheap daily storage: each regular-sized bag is $10 per day, and oversized bags are $15 per day. Drop your luggage off at their secure facility and head out on the town!

Portland is renowned for its beautiful cityscape and natural feel. And it’s easy to see why!
Not only does traveling through the city itself feel like a walk in the woods at times, but Portland is home to some of the most inviting parks in the country. Store your bags at Portland’s Greyhound Station and then head for nearby Lan Su Chinese Garden or Macleay Park.
Greyhound Station’s luggage lockers are timed, and cost $5-$7 for two hours. You can rent up to three of them at a time if needed.

Besides the ones already discussed, Portland doesn’t have much public luggage storage available.
But luckily, you do still have a few more options.
First, if you plan to use the Amtrak train systems, take advantage of their luggage storage, which is free for passengers.
If you don’t intend to ride the train, you can check with nearby hotels to see if they will hold your luggage for you. Occasionally they are willing to do so - but be sure to tip!
Name: Portland Amtrak Union Station
Address: 800 NW Sixth Avenue Portland, OR 97209-3789
Type of storage: Daily
Price: Free for ticket holders only
Whether it’s a layover between flights, or you had to check out of your hotel hours before your evening flight leaves, being stuck with your luggage is no fun. Having to drag bags around with you can spoil even the best-laid plans.
And that’s what we’re here to change!
At Knock Knock City, we understand the frustrations that come with traveling and are here to make your trip easier. Because of that, we’re bringing affordable, accessible luggage storage to Portland.
At this point, you may be wondering how this all works. So here’s our process in a nutshell:
We partner with local shops and stores to create luggage storage space in areas close to a city’s main attractions. Then, we thoroughly train all of the owners and staff in safety and security procedures to ensure your belongings are kept safe. Each bag you store with us is also insured for up to $2000.
After that, it’s pretty simple: you book with our convenient app, drop off your luggage, enjoy your time in Portland, and pick your bags up again when you’re ready to depart.
But what about price?
It’s $1/hour (Pay max. $10/bag per day). The rate is the same for all sizes of bags, backpacks, luggage to make it simple.
And the best part? We only charge you for the exact time you store with us - no upcharges or extra fees!
As Oregan’s largest city, Portland is known for its eco-friendliness and beautiful green spaces - not to mention its coffeehouses and breweries. Sandwiched between two major rivers, it offers close access to several National Forests. It’s also famous for its arts and culture scene, where music, theatre, and artistic expression thrives.
First off, Portland is one of the most walkable (and bikeable) cities in the United States. You can get to the majority of your destinations by using a combination of public transportation and your own two feet - so bring comfy shoes! Though it’s generally considered to be a very safe city, crime does still happen, so keep your belongings close and stay in well-lit, public areas after dark.
Second, it tends to be quite rainy and cool here during the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Be sure to bring an umbrella and a raincoat to stay dry.
Finally, the typical tip here is around 15-20%, which is a bit more than you see elsewhere. If you can, try to tip that much, since that’s the general expectation locally.
Portland is widely considered the biking capital of the U.S. There are many bike tours that you can take that will give you a truly local experience, and we highly recommend seeing the city this way.
If biking isn’t your thing, there’s still plenty of great things to do here! You can spend a whole day at Washington Park, where you can visit the Oregon Zoo, the historic Pittock Mansion, the Vietnam Memorial, and the stunningly beautiful Portland Japanese Garden.
Finally, if you’re in town on a Saturday, check out the Portland Saturday Market. You never know what treasure you’ll find here, and you’ll get to meet lots of friendly Portland locals.

It’s not a fancy restaurant, and only takes cash, but no visit to Portland would be complete without a trip to Voodoo Doughnut. These delicious specialty donuts are cooked and served round the clock. Be prepared to stand in line, but know that it’s well worth it!
