I booked this property based upon pricing. The old adage "You get what you pay for" was never more apparent. The room was adequate but was showing some age. The carpets were in need of cleaning as after walking on them briefly to get to the shower, my feet left a black residue in the tub, Yuck! I used the... More

I'm sorry but I am not sure who checked you in and informed you that we serve a continental breakfast. We offer the oatmeal, donuts, and coffee just as a little something extra for our guests, we do not have a continental breakfast at this time. I will be speaking with the staff and will insure that they do not... More

This is a quite nice motel on US26 in eastern Oregon. The rooms were clean and well maintained, there was WiFi and a pool/spa on the property, and a nice place for breakfast across the street (none in the motel).

Good value for your dollar. The motel was clean and room decent size. Thankful for the super strong AC as the outdoor temperatures reached 92+. Centrally located in John Day. I didn't use the pool/spa area, but looked like the other travelers seemed to enjoy it. I only stayed 1 night and it fit the bill for my needs.

This is not the Ritz. It is more like another reviewer said, which is "Best Western with chipped paint." This place is clearly dated and in need of a remodel. HOWEVER, it was very clean in our room, the beds were very comfortable, and surprisingly quiet, even though it is off of a Main Street. We paid around $100 a... More

The facility is older, but clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful.. The only drawbacks were poor wi-fi signal strength and the resurfacing (and closing) of half the parking lot each day on a weekend.

We were passing through on a trip to eastern Oregon, we knew we would arrive late, and we needed a place to stay. Our second floor room was clean and very comfortable, and modestly but nicely appointed. There is no elevator, but the property is built into the side of a hill, so the second floor rooms have doors that... More

Thank you for your kind words. I love that we are able to offer the back parking lot as an alternative to the stairs, it makes it so much easier on our guests. Thank you again, and I hope that we will get to see you again if you are ever through the area. More

They did not even know I had reservations, I had to show them on my phone that I did make them, lucky there was a room for us. Other than the above what I wrote it was a decent place, ac went out only once.

We were looking to answer the question, "Who was John Day?" This motel offered us a good location with a comfortable night's stay. We discovered John Day had many sights named for him including River, Town, Fossil Beds, and Dam. The dam was 200 miles from the town of John Day. The clerk went out of her way to be... More

This is a nice, inexpensive hotel in a really good location. It's not fancy. It's like a Best Western with chipped paint. It's very quiet. We were traveling with an elderly dog and needed a room on the first floor. That was no problem. Our room was near the back and we had no road noise at all even though... More
