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.

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
