“Great Roadside Motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2009

This motel is about a ten-minute walk from Old Town Bandon (including the port), and is located right on Highway 101 (the main highway of the Oregon coast). So the location is very convenient. Also, the room was clean and well maintained. There is a playground behind the motel--apparently attached to Ocean Crest Elementary, so probably available for public use during the right times--although we didn't have time to let our child check it out. This motel is a step above the typical motel of years past (cleaner, better maintained), but there isn't much more to it than a very nice room in a very convenient location.

I traveled to Bandon to celebrate my birthday with a friend, who stayed in another room. I love Room 12 and usually try to reserve it. I have a Great Dane and there's plenty of room for him. The bed was so comfortable, I slept better than I do at home. The decor, ammenities, nice owners, cleanliness, service, and furnishings are so nice, I always hate to leave. The location is very convenient, with a grocery store, one restaurant, two fast food eateries, a video store, and Old Town and the waterfront are just a short walk away with more great eating places. It's the perfect location, as you can walk anywhere. As others have mentioned, even though the Inn is right on Hwy. 101, the traffic is non-existent after 9 pm, and I never hear any noise from other rooms. It's a really nice stay with very reasonable rates.

My friend loved her room too, and said she could have happily stayed at the La Kris for a week.

Upon pulling into the parking lot you can see the rooms are edged with gardens full of mature plants and flowers. Each room is decorated differently, making it feel more like you are staying at someones house. Our room had adequate space even though we set up a pack'n'play for our youngest to sleep in. The owners are very friendly and helpful. A quick walk across the street will get you to dairy queen or the grocery store, walk a little bit further down the hill will get you to the charming down town area and dock (there is tasty fish and chips place down there).

Its a motel, but not your stereotypical one, its clean, convient and charming and worth the price. Great friendly staff that don't bug you, but are there whenever you need them. Every room is decorated to a different theme, which I thought was great. Not right on the beach, but right down the road from it, within 5 minutes walking distance. Close to great food stores and a quick walk from old town and boardwalk. A great unique experience at fraction of the cost. If you want a good Bandon experience, this is the place to start. Thanks again!

We found the LaKris Inn to be charming, clean and reasonable. The Management was helpful. Highway 101 is right there so there is some traffic noise. We would recommend it to anyone. Jim and Betty Roppe

Stayed here in mid October. Loved the laminate on the floor instead of dirty carpet!! Travelling with three small dogs . Found the location ideal; although it's on the Highway there is no noise after 10:00 pm.It's a twenty minute walk to the State Park where dogs are allowed on the beach. It's a 5 minute walk to downtown where there a several restaurants & some shopping.
The room was very small but clean & everything one needs. We just sleep in the room anyway!!
Would recommend to anyone.

Our room was small, which I expected from the reviews, but charmingly decorated. Unfortunately, there were serious dusty bunnies in the corners, and throughout the night we had road noise on one side, people talking either side of our room (it was like the two groups were together and yelling through our room), and backhoe noise behind it. The price is better than other places in Bandon, but it wasn't worth the savings.

LaKrisInn, Owner at La Kris Inn, responded to this review, December 11, 2008
We encourage our guests to let us know if the other guests are making excessive noise. It is not an uncommon problem when traveling and we will ask the neighbors to quiet down. It is unfortunate that we were not asked to interceed.
The backhoe issue was a one time event. We had arranged with the city to not do any work until after 10AM. The crew, however, did not get the message. We have addressed this with the city work crew.
The dirty portion of the review suprised me. We make every effort to run a clean motel as can be seen in our other reviews. We also encourage guests to look at the rooms before checking in so they can see what they are renting.
