We received a ground level room, it was near office and outside entrance and stairwell to second floor. Curtain in room was torn and hanging off hook. Sliding door had flimsy lock. Got maybe two hours sleep due to drunks right outside partying in entryway. Next morning there was garbage and beer bottles laying around. Management did nothing to control... More

Good Morning, I do truly apologize for the condition of the curtain in your room and the lock on the sliding glass door. On all of the sliding glass doors the locks are well used and do not latch very well, so that's why we also provide a safety bar in every room to ensure the safety of our guests.... More

I stayed for one night after my employer booked me at this hotel. The desk clerk was very pleasant and lobby looked OK, although they messed up the reservation and had to redo it. Hallways were worn-out looking and dingy. My room looked OK at first, but on closer inspection I was not sure it had been cleaned at all.... More

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
