I grew up in Bend, so I come back regularly to visit friends and family. As I've gotten older, having my own space during my stay has been important, so I gladly pay for a hotel room.
Low on money for my usual place (summer rates are outrageous), I chose Bend Value Inn. The reviews I skimmed over seemed fine. I don't need extras in my room, just A/C, a bed, and a clean bathroom. This room had all three, plus a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and cable. That's pretty sweet in my book. Also, I grew up in that part of town so I'm well aware that it isn't the greatest area, but I never felt unsafe there.
However, when I booked the room, I didn't realize that this was a "daily/weekly rate" kind of place. So, it was really uncomfortable to notice the long term tenants eyeing us while we unloaded the car after check in. I wondered if I should be worried or...? I joked about it with my boyfriend before going to bed that night, but after hearing a group of drunk or high people behind the inn whooping it up and revving their cars, I was seriously tempted to barricade the door with a dresser or something. The fact that you had to ring a bell to be let into the manager's office to check in didn't bode well, either.
So, the room was nice enough, and based on that alone, sure I'd stay there again. However, being among long term residents made me feel uncomfortable, like I was invading their space or something, and that's enough to make me avoid the place in the future.
