We were on a long road trip. Stopped to ask for a room. The front desk was very helpful. The room was quiet, beds were comfortable and everything was spotless. Even had cable tv. Short walk to great saloons and restaurants. Price was reasonable for the season and what we got

I would definitely stay here again. We had an upstairs room but there was a back parking lot that leveled out to the back door of the room so that was super convenient. The room was very nice and roomy. Front desk staff wasn't rude but could be a little more inviting. We originally were going to stay for 3...

This was a really nice motel! I usually stay at hotels but we came to see the John Day Fossil Beds and this quaint little town only has motels! We stayed for three nights and I was thoroughly impressed! Everyone in the motel and town were so friendly and helpful! The hotel was clean and every day that we got...

I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay! I am also happy to hear that our housekeepers did such a great job on your room. I did want to let you know, for those who prefer being on the top floor, that our parking lot stretches up and around the back of the building. We are built into the...

Room was clean. This is basic motel. Nothing fancy. A place to stay if you are going to be in John Day that is OK. We had no problem and no bad experience. Motel is not particularly secure. Our room had front and back door. Back door even with ground so easy entrance but back door is not visible to...

This is an old motel with poor maintenance, it was clean but the amenities are limited and the wifi nearly nonexistent. There is no restaurant but there are some within walking distance. The price far exceeded the value.

I booked this property based upon pricing. The old adage "You get what you pay for" was never more apparent. The room was adequate but was showing some age. The carpets were in need of cleaning as after walking on them briefly to get to the shower, my feet left a black residue in the tub, Yuck! I used the...

I'm sorry but I am not sure who checked you in and informed you that we serve a continental breakfast. We offer the oatmeal, donuts, and coffee just as a little something extra for our guests, we do not have a continental breakfast at this time. I will be speaking with the staff and will insure that they do not...

This is a quite nice motel on US26 in eastern Oregon. The rooms were clean and well maintained, there was WiFi and a pool/spa on the property, and a nice place for breakfast across the street (none in the motel).

Good value for your dollar. The motel was clean and room decent size. Thankful for the super strong AC as the outdoor temperatures reached 92+. Centrally located in John Day. I didn't use the pool/spa area, but looked like the other travelers seemed to enjoy it. I only stayed 1 night and it fit the bill for my needs.

This is not the Ritz. It is more like another reviewer said, which is "Best Western with chipped paint." This place is clearly dated and in need of a remodel. HOWEVER, it was very clean in our room, the beds were very comfortable, and surprisingly quiet, even though it is off of a Main Street. We paid around $100 a...
