Very remote area and ideally located if you want to see the Painted Hills or explore the John Day Fossil Beds. Clean, comfortable, totally unpretentious, charmingly decorated and very reasonably priced. It is a small complex with only 5 rooms and the Owner/Operator is a fine Gentleman and a genuine good Person. He told me that he screens carefully to... More

Mitchell is the closest town to the Painted Hills and there are only two motels in town. I called the other one first but they were fully booked except for rooms with shared baths, which I won't do unless it's absolutely necessary. Anyway, I booked the day before arrival, and by nightfall of the next day, it was already full.... More

On a recent road trip to explore all three of the John Day Fossil Beds, I decided to bunk down in Mitchell, Oregon, due to the great proximity to all of the sites. I stayed three nights at The Sky Hook Motel, a six unit motel that sits on the hill above the town of Mitchell. Clean and comfortable, the... More

We were wanting to visit the painted hills at John Day Fossil Memorial and booked a room at Sky Hook in the very small town of Mitchell. The close proximity to the hills allowed us to visit during peak photography times. The rooms were quaint with homey touches. It was small but served it's purpose. There was only one three... More

We were traveling with our adult daughter and son-in-law to visit the John Day Fossil Beds area. The 2 bedroom unit we rented was perfect for our needs. The kitchen included a microwave, coffee pot, range,and refrigerator. There was even a small living room area. The beds were comfortable and the unit clean. The only negative was the bathroom, which... More

We stayed here on a road trip to the Painted Hills. We arrived after 9:00 and let ourselves in (we'd arranged it with the owner). It was pretty much as the other reviews suggested: more charming than frumpy, really a mixture of both. It a larger town I'd run screaming from it, in a teeny-tiny little central Oregon town it...

Denny and Becky are very nice and friendly proprietors. The accomodations are '50s rustic, with old decor, and a bit past charming, but tidy and clean. There are only 5 units -- I recommend getting one of the two 2-bedroom units if available, as they have full kitchens and larger bathrooms. No Air conditinoing, so it will be hot in... More
