We often spend the night in La Grande on our way to Utah. This was our first stay at the Sandman and it has now become our favorite. The rooms have been recently redone. The bed was very comfortable, the decor pleasing, great flat screen tv, friendly staff, and quiet. We were on the second floor overlooking the front parking... More

Very noisy motel. Woke up 10-15 times a night. I let the desk know of my concerns. The door is really loud, all it might take is a sign letting patrons know to close the door slowly, she said she would make a note...limit didn't happen. Me stayed there three nights and this was on the second night.

I travel all over the state and this is the first hotel that did not allow me to check in at 2pm. I worked all afternoon into the evening and it would have been very convenient for me to be able to at least check in and put my things in the room before working. The hotel was not busy... More

Due to our late departure from Seattle by the time we reached La Grande we were so ready to be off the road, and get some sleep. It was about 10:00 P.M. when we pulled into the Super 8, Super 8 are usually reasonably priced, and clean, but in La Grande they wanted $150.00 for the night, not happening! So... More

Stopped at this hotel very last minute and was greater late at night with a wonderful welcome and smile. The price was what pulled us in and we were very pleased! Very clean and comfortable hotel. Recommend it!

This is a basic hotel, to be sure. It recently got new carpets and fresh paint. The room was very clean and the bed was notably comfortable. The breakfast was ordinary at best, but I wasn't expecting any better. For the price, this is a good deal and way better than the older reviews suggested. Additionally, the desk staff was... More

We have stayed at this motel several times on our way to and through LaGrande. We have always been mostly satisfied. The rooms are clean and the gal that normally checks us in is very friendly and helpful. On Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014, we arrived and at check in, the gal (the one we normally get) told us that the... More

The hotel looked new (or newly remodeled) and the lobby and breakfast area was clean. Our room was very clean. Did not hear any noise from the hall or surrounding rooms. Breakfast was your typical continental fare but was good. Staff was friendly.

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!
