A bit disappointed when I arrived, the owner was not very welcoming and told me that I would not be getting a breakfast even though my confirmation stated that a breakfast would be included. The room was old (pictures shown of the ancient bathrooms by other guests are accurate). However, it was clean enough and was acceptable for a night.... More

Do not stay here under any circumstances. Aside from it being extremely dirty and outdated the management could not be worse. They are definitely NOT looking out for the best interest of the customer.. They treated us poorly from the moment we got there accusing of us of making an online reservation incorrectly. By that time, it was too late... More

Sorry for the way you felt about us. This motel is old construction and we clearly mentioned that on our site. When you checked in you made two reservations for same date and same person , so actually you made two reservations online and we ACTUALLY HELPED YOU IN CANCELING THE OTHER RESERVATION AND DID LET GO REVENUE OF THAT...

I was satisfied with the room until 5am when I was awakened by a mouse trying to get out of the trash can next to the bed. I ended up getting out of there as fast as I could and when I called back later, the owners were extremely very defensive and not willing to do anything about it. The... More

if you want a clean place to stay that is affordable stay here. It's a older almost midcentury motor hotel. The style is actually neat and the guy at the desk was super helpful. We had room 140, nothing bad to say about the room other than we heard trains and highway noise. Easy walking to shops and restaurants.

(Just look at the pictures.) The room smelled a little musty. So, we opened the windows. One window had a screen. The other didn't. The paint on the ceiling was peeling and the ceiling was kind of wavy. The closet was very small and it had a stove pipe running through it. The bathroom was, shall we say, very "retro".... More

Clean older motel in downtown the Dalles. Good value quaint bathrooms within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. WiFi flat screen TV. A/c a bit noisy but helps to cover road noise. Good for an overnight stop without spending a lot

We have stayed here in the past several years whenever we come into The Dalles. Before it was ok. The rooms are clean and small and the fridge hums noisily. The motel is fairly glum and dumpy, strictly no frills. This last time we noticed a downward turn here. Cars of couples and single people parked in the motel parking... More

we stayed here for just the one night. The owner was friendly. The room was dark but was clean. The room was a decent size. Was ok for one night but not sur e I'd want to stay longer. Was close to local eateries and the murals.
