Just passing through on our way to Crater Lake. Awesome room and service for the price!!!! Rates are 60% less than others nearby. Very friendly check in gal, and informative!!! Don't let the empty parking lot fool you...hell, it's quiet here :) Will stay here again next time we pass through Grants Pass!!!

We stayed here two nights a few days apart and found this place excellent value for money. We had a problem with a noisy person next door to us and on our second night she made sure we were elsewhere.

After driving around grants pass looking for somewhere to stay we decided this place was most central. On pulling in the manager ran from the pool to see to us. She said she wasn't going to sit behind a desk all day...fair enough. She was most helpful and even recommended taprock grill for dinner, a short 5 minute walk away.... More

Pulled into the Discovery Inn late Saturday afternoon after pounding the pavement hard on my motorcycle all day from Sacramento. Clean room and centrally located in Grants Pass between the two one way main drags.. Looked to be a younger couple who own the place. The guy was painting doors on the rooms. The motel had that homey touch of... More

The room was clean and neat. I understand that some of the rooms are being remodeled but mine wasn't one of them but was still comfortable. I had everything I needed and the other guests wern't loud. The lady at the desk was very cordial and friendly, trying to help me be comfortable, checking to be sure I had everything... More

We stayed at the Discovery Inn recently and was greeted by the most energetic and friendly counter gal. I found out she was the NEW Manager and saw, during my stay, that she and her employees never seemed to stop. They were always around cleaning or painting or fixing items. It was a very pleasant experience and am looking forward... More

I've stayed here a few times when the Drill Sgt. and his overly energetic and (im sorry) but very loud and annoying wife was working. Despite the headache of a check in I enjoyed what they offered which was to make me comfortable in any way possible. I Travel to Grants Pass about 4 times a month and although work... More

My experience with this motel started off wonderful. The manager that booked my room was so wonderful and compassionate. I went to stay to recover from major surgery and the managers went above and beyond their duties. I was treated like royalty. They checked on me and also brought me items they felt would make me more comfortable. The room... More

My wife and I pulled into Discovery Inn at Grants Pass on Sat. of April 16th around 7:30 P.M.
