“Nice and Reasonably Priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Nice hotel. The big highlight here, traveling with young children, was the pool--oh, and the llamas. This place has eight or so llamas that just sort of stand by and eat, I guess. I was sort of amused, but the kids went absolutely bonkers because they could not only get right up them (through a fence) but actually feed these friendly beasts.

Other than all the llama excitement, they have excellent breakfasts and a really pleasant staff. Laundry was expensive, but helpful.

Room Tip: First Floor--nearer the office is better.

Larry E thank you for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and wanted to let others know about it. The McKenzie Pass (Hwy 242) is open usually from late June to the first snow - middle of November. It is an awesome road and the Dee Wright Observatory is a must see. Built around 1936 out of lava, it looks like a medeviel small castle. Amazing! This lava flow area was were the astornauts test equipment and space suite for the first walk on the moon.

This is an excellent hotel in the quaint little town of Sisters, Oregon. Located on spacious grounds in a quiet area near the edge of town, but still only a pleasant walk to downtown shopping and restaurants. We recommend it for anyone.

Our boys loved the pool and hot tub after a day of exploring the region. The National Forest that borders the hotel offered lots of wildlife viewing and an amazing aroma each morning (vanilla-ish). The free breakfast was well rounded and a perfect start to the day. We walked into the lovely main street of Sisters with little effort. The Llamas were an added bonus.

Stayed here for 4th of July weekend and everything was perfect, the staff was friendly and efficient, the grounds were well kept, check in was smooth as was check out.

Entire motel is in a western-frontiers motif and was well thought out in its decorations and appointments.

Room was clean and everything was in working order.No problems.

Llamas, chipmunks, squirrels, a variety of birds, and even some deer are on or around the grounds.
Poll is big enough and has bathrooms outside at pool with a very large hot tub.

Internet in the lobby worked fine.
There is plenty of parking.

There is a "Rays" grocery store across the street if you wanna get some food or groceries.also a McDonalds and a subway and a family sit down style restaurant.

I would come here again and highly recommend.

If you want to have an afforable, comfortable and relaxing stay, choose this hotel! The hotel grounds are really nice with a lot of lawn for kids to play on. The swimming pool is at a central location for all to enjoy. Don't miss a chance to see the llama's that they also have on site. You get to feed them which is always a treat.
