We appreciate that this Inn is old, but still no excuse for the very dirty carpets in the hall ways and rooms. Just a thorough shampooing would make a big difference. And as for the window in our room it does not appear to have been cleaned for the longest time The blanket on our bed had definitely seen better... More

Ok, so the hotel is a bit run down. Their marquee is advertising their need for a maintenance person. The hallway carpet was pretty gross and I was starting to get scared, but when we got into our room, it wasn't too horrible. The room was clean and, although old, not too run down . Look, we paid $70 for... More

We stayed here because there were no other rooms in La Grande left. The motel is old and shabby and costs about 50% more than what other equivalent places in La Grande cost. The good thing about our room is that it was quite large, but nothing else was especially good. The beds were squishy and uneven. The bedspreads were... More

We stayed here after a mishap with the hotel we booked originally...So for a last minute desperate booking it was okay. But, they really should update the ripped and stained carpets all over the main areas. There is no smoking in the hotel, so they all line up right outside the door...ikk! The bed was not comfy, linens' were old... More

We had great service &friendly staff. We've stayed a few times & our room has consistently been clean & quiet, plus everything worked, which has not always happened in other places I've stayed. The bed was quite comfortable, not that typical hard hotel bed. I always enjoy staying here.

We had a very nice stay at La Grande Inn. The staff was nice, friendly, and very helpful. The room and bathroom was very clean. We had no problem at all if we needed anything they was right there with it. We will stay no place else but La Grande Inn when we travel through La Grande from now on.

Our hotel room was dirty. Toilet was full of used toilet tissue and bathroom counter was covered in grime and coffee rings. Floors were dirty; covered in crumbs and hair and stains. Bed spreads were stained and the room smelled incredibly strongly of stale cigarette smoke. For nearly 80 dollars, this one night stay was incredibly unpleasant. I will never... More

The hallway / room carpet were dirty, the bathtub was dirty, a little Ajax / bleach/ scrubbing would take care of this...there was also pubic hair in the tub along with mold in the corners around the tub..cleaning staff needs to take a little more time in doing their job

We stayed here July 4th last year (2014), so we knew that the property was tired. They have a really great hot tub, but it's 97 degrees so we planned on using the pool and laying around.

I would like to apologize for your experience while staying at our hotel.
