Unfortunately, what is a very nice property becomes tainted when you look at your bank statement/credit card billling. This hotel has a nasty practice of pre-authorizing a significant portion of your stay immediately on the day of arrival BEFORE YOU EVEN CHECK IN! They also over bill your stay at check out 20% and when we called to complain stated... More

This room was listed as a nonsmoking room but reeked of smoke. Had a poor continental breakfast with toast and bad muffins. Staff was not helpful they had to search for ten minutes to find our reservation. Would not come back here again!

I typically do not write online reviews, but am writing this one in hopes someone may avoid future issues. The main reason we stayed here was that they were only hotel in town that allowed pets that had availability the night we were in town. What a mistake it ended up being. I had to make my reservation over the... More

I knew I didn't need a fancy place to stay since this was for one night and I would have to leave the next morning. I was very amazed at my room. I had a king room on the first floor. The room had a sofa, desk, tv, refrigerator, coffee pot and small microwave. The room was clean and impressive.... More

The standard King room was spacious, clean, and quiet. It included a small sofa, work desk, coffee pot, and refrigerator. Lots of electrical outlets. The man at the front desk was very helpful, friendly, and efficient when we checked in. He even called the room a little while later just to ask if anything was needed and to wish a... More

We took sone furnature to our college aged son at EOU. we stayed at Mr Sandman/America's Best Calue. We found the parking very easy. The room was clean. The bedding is of good quality, and is better than most of the other motels in La Grande. The beds were made the same way that all the Major hotel brands make... More

I've read a number of reviews for this property, and it's my opinion that the negative reviews are likely due to a travelers unfamiliarity with La Grande. People traveling from Seattle to Salt Lake and have no understanding of this region will not have their lodging needs met at any property in this town. I have lived in LA, San... More

Needed 2 rooms while passing thru. Both queens. This was formerly a Sandman as the big sign says, but is now a America's Best. It is an older property in need of some updating - but functional. We had no problems in our rooms. The breakfast area is cramped and selection is quite limited.
