Our stay exceeded our expectations in nearly every way. We have been fishing out this way for years, and camp when the weather permits. This proved to be an outstanding solution for when the weather turns a little colder. Great kitchen, super comfortable, spotless, and outstanding service. We will be back.

This little motel is one of those very old motels from several decades ago that has been completely renovated to current. The renovation was done quite well and everything inside the room was completely new and very clean. Very nice bed and bedding. Large t.v. with adequate cable. Did not give 5 stars because the motel is practically sitting on... More

A small family owned motel that is absoutely non smoking! Owners are friendly and have done a lot of work to make this a comfortable place ~ very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Prices are reasonable and there's a great restaurant in town. We just stopped for the night on the way to the coast, glad we did!

This is our second visit to the Rufus Hillview Motel. It was a little out of the way but well worth the extra miles. We were on a quick weekend getaway and didn't have a lot of money to spend on a room. The price was great and the proprietor was very warm and welcoming. We had so much fun... More

For such a small town very lean, quiet, affordable. Was very surprised to find this place, very nice people. Room was spotless! We transport manufactured homes so if we are ever winded out this will be on our list!!! They were very accommodating for sure did not expect to find this in such a small town at all. Thank you

My husband and I spent a weekend in Rufus to go kite boarding with friends. The hotel is close to the river and was easy to get to after a kite boarding session on the Columbia. The room, kitchen and bathroom was very clean which I really appreciated. The bedding and sheets and mattress were amazing. I slept better at... More

We spent the night at the Hillview during a trip to watch the lunar eclipse from the nearby stonehenge memorial. For three people, the room was cozy with a separate room with a twin bed for the third person (no door, though). The room was clean, and the bed was absolutely comfortable, a definite surprise for a small motel. the... More

Very friendly husband-and-wife owners. The rooms are spic-and-span and cozy with updated accommodations, including fridge and microwave. The beds are extremely comfortable. A great home base for taking in the local scenery.

We stay at the Rufus Hillview each August the night before our fishing trip on the Deschutes. Our first year I was SO surprised by this little gem! The place is very clean, rooms are cozy and stylishly decorated. There is s cute patio area with tables/chairs and potted plants which is nice for a "Happy Hour"! The owners are... More

This place was incredible value for how cute, clean and cozy it was. Way better than camping in one of those windy campgrounds along the gorge. It's only a matter of time before this best kept secret gets really popular, so take advantage and book as soon as you can.
