Small town's are notorious for dated & rundown motels. We were pleasantly surprised to find this not to be the case with the Mingo Motel. The owner's have obviously invested money and time to turn this small town motel into a pleasant experience with clean updated accommodations. The fact that it is situated on a perpendicular side street and not... More

What a delightful find! The Mingo Motel is a gem among cobbles( as compared to most establishments in small towns)!! Beautifully decorated with locally and USA made linens and furniture. Rustic elegance is the best description I can think of. And with the "Blond Strawberry" café/coffee shop just across the parking lot is a wonderful addition. The combination of the... More

Wallowa is a small community, but the Mingo Motel is affordably priced and well situated, not far from Joseph and Lake Wallowa. The owners have provided clean, comfortable rooms. I think it's the best option for the price in the area. My wife and I were here for two nights. It was quiet, we slept comfortably and well, then pressed... More

I say best there is because it's the ONLY place in Wallowa. That said, it's a tidy little place, very humble, but clean and generally comfortable. It's been thoughtfully updated within the limitations of the 1950s/1960s-era construction. The room was clean and quiet, but the low-budget mattress could have been more comfortable. The town of Wallowa is tiny and not... More

This may be the nicest little motel I have ever encountered. The hard-working owner has completely updated the rooms and decorated them with furnishings handmade by local artists. Everything is immaculately clean and well-maintained. Birdhouses and flower beds make even the outdoor benches attractive. My friends and I stopped the night before we started a backpacking trip into the Eagle... More

This traveler had a beautiful room with new carpet and new paint. He stayed in room 8 and left the door opened for the mosquitos to come in. When he left he left the door open it took me 2 hours to kill the mosquitos he let in. He paid with tax $53.00 for the room. How can I control... More

This little motel is our new go-to place when we need to stay in the Joseph/Enterprise area. Just 17 miles from Joseph, it's close to all the fun, clean, quiet, and recently remodeled. The cinder block walls mean that there is no noise, while each room comes equipped w/ a microwave & mini-fridge. How did it save our bacon? Well,... More

Cute, very clean motel offers a good, quiet rest in the beautiful Wallowa valley. Nice sitting area out front. Conveniently located...short walk to grocery store and restaurant, but not right on the highway so nice and quiet. Great value, very welcoming. Recommended.

We had a great stay in April. Very quiet! Of course we were one of two people that were staying there. The office manager (maybe owner?) was incredibly nice and helpful. Great location. Walking distance to coffee and breakfast in the morning... A great place to stay if you are looking for clean, simple accommodations.
