Drove in from a long ways away and needed to sleep. The price was great-- totally what I expected. My room was clean. Water pressure was great. Breakfast had hard boiled eggs (and muffins, oatmeal, fruit cups, etc) and surprisingly good coffee. I stayed for less than 5 hours but it was worth it. I would stay here again if... More

Despite the advertised price in the coupon book (which the clerk duly cut out and kept) we suffered predatory pricing due to it being late on a Friday with a high school football team checking in after us. After suffering sticker shock of a $35 jump in price, and an indifferent clerk who was more interested in reclining in the... More

This hotel is in dire need of renovations. There was water damage in the bathroom that caused tile to pop out, mildew smell, and old furniture. Unfriendly staff and a very weak breakfast. I recommend looking further.

Good location. Hotel is a little dated. Room was clean except for the visible Cobb webs around the fire alarm and the air conditioner which was up by the ceiling. Beds were comfortable. Room was quiet. Breakfast was very basic continental. Price was good. Would probably stay again.

This is an older property that could use an upgrade or 12. But, we got into town, needed a room for the night, didn't need much of anything other than a bed, and the La Grande Inn provided that at a decent price. The room was clean, didn't have any funny odor, and the beds were comfortable. This was the... More

I was kinda worried about booking here because I usually stay at a Marriott. But I wanted an outdoor pool! Well when I walked in I was surprised to see the manager Janiee. Very friendly, pretty, and dressed nice! Phew what a relief! She gave me probably the nicest room overlooking the pool. The kid's were happy and swam every... More

This Inn definitly needs a big face lift. The room was a good size, clean, & plenty of outlets, though not as accessible as they could be. We had the refrig. & coffee maker, no microwave which I really like to have. The outside hall carpets have seen better days & were filthy.We had a terrible time with the air... More

This was less than half the price of the best rated motel in La Grande. We inquired at that one and they were rude. We kept going. This was our 3rd try and they were friendly and the price was good! Our room was clean, small, but had a micro wave & fridge. There was a suitcase dolly that was... More

We needed an overnight stay in La Grande and chose the La Grande Inn based on reviews and it was about middle of the road pricing between the most expensive place in La Grande and least expensive, reviews were decent and I essentially agree with most of them. It is an older property, but they work hard to keep it... More
