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

Stayed in town for graduation. Room did have a slight odor and air conditioning didn't keep us comfortable for sleeping. These are common problems for older hotels so didn't hold it against them. The price is right. Overall, if you are on a tight budget this hotel is for you!

I was moving my daughter with a u-haul truck pulling a trailer with a car on it. We happened to stop and when inquired about where to park, Hannah, the front desk clerk was very knowledgeable about where to park and very friendly. She told us they were pretty full and she gave us 2 options to park and they... More

I have stayed here 4-5 times for work. Each time has been an easy check in, has wifi, decent breakfast. In and out with no problems. Is it the Waldorf Astoria? No. Is it a decent hotel in La Grande, OR? Yes.

Our company stayed here for two weeks while on a project and the manager treated our staff as if we were employees of theirs. Manager on staff needs to reevaluate her understanding of hospitality and the value of service. Will not bring company back here or provide them business of any kind. Mold in shower, requested it to be addressed,... More

We stayed at this hotel last night with our dog. It seems if you own a dog it's okay for your room to be old and smelly! Well, it was disgusting and almost worse than anywhere we've ever stayed. To top it off we paid a $15 pet fee. The furniture was old and the room wreaked of Febreeze. It... More

Average kind of sums it up for the La Grande Inn. Check-in went well, the staff were helpful and friendly and were the best part of our one night stay. They gave us some ideas for dinner which were well received. The La Grande Inn has a continental breakfast and when we stayed, offered "biscuits and gravy", a little too... More
