Reviewed November 4, 2013

How many ways or times must I be slapped on the side of the head before I get the message? First, when we checked in there are no other cars in the parking lot at 3pm and they have 116 rooms. Second, the room smelled musty so we asked for a different room. Third, the sliding door to the outside deck on the second room fell off the track and we couldn’t close it. Fourth, the third room had stains on the carpet, burn holes in the kitchenette floor, and in general, it wasn’t very inviting. BUT, we stayed, and WHY did we stay? The only thing this dump has going for it is it’s on the river with a nice view. At about 5pm, as we were leaving for dinner in Gold Beach, three trucks of forest fire fighters arrived with a crew of about 6-8 men to get some rest before heading out the next morning for work. They unloaded gear and cases of beer. This should have been a tipoff of what was to come but I thought they were working and needed rest so it would be alright. WRONG! They spent the night banging off the walls, hanging over the front deck railing and puking, shouting and stumbling all over the area. IT WAS LOUD and my wife felt unsafe. We called the front desk at about 11pm and the management responded to get them settled down. Then at 6am, the banging started again as they set off for work. At check out, without us saying anything, management gave us a small discount for our discomfort…Big deal! Clean the place up.
This place is a dump for travelers and overnighters. If you are a fisherman, it might be the place to stay because of its location on the Rogue River and it has a boat launch. It also has a tackle store on premises so it is convenient for the fisherman but for families, couples and travelers it more than sucks. If I could give it less than one star for the rating, I would. It deserves less.

Room Tip: There probably aren't any good rooms!

I have stayed at Jots several times and always find it nice and relaxing... I see other reviews complaining about its cleanliness and have to disagree with all them 110%... The rooms are very clean and well cared for... NO BEDBUGS as some reviews have stated, that is just wrong! Every room has great views!

The staff is very helpful and friendly!

I would HIGHLY recommend Jot's to any one that may traveling here! You can watch the fishing boats from your rooms whether on the first or second floors. Lots of rooms for your pets as well!

Room Tip: Every room has a great views so no need to worry about the room assignment! I prefer the rooms wit...

We booked a motel room for two nights based on my husband's recollection of staying here 15 years ago. Well, the rooms obviously have not been updated since then. Beds were uncomfortable and the mattress pads and fitted undersheets were too small for the mattresses, so they continually came off at night, leaving us sleeping partially on the bare mattress. Carpet was gross and I was uneasy about placing our suitcase on the carpeted suitcase shelf. Sure enough, by the 2nd morning I found an adult bedbug and my son and husband had bites all over their legs and feet. The room had a lovely view and my son enjoyed swimming in the heated pool, but neither those nor the convenience of being picked up by the jet boats at Jot's dock were worth the price of staying there.

This review is false and most likely written by a competitor. No complaint was ever made on property, and we feel this is an economic attack. The only purpose of this review was to stop future guests from booking with our property.
We are a family owned and operated property that values our guests and their reviews, this review should not be considered a factor when staying with us. We do allow guests to view their accommodations upon arrival.
We do offer private docks for our guests to board the Rogue River jet boat tour, guided fishing trips, or for their own moorage. Our office is staffed 24-hours and we welcome guests at any hour.

Avoid at all cost. Room sucks. Smells and looks like Dad. Horrible to 9th power. Rooms dated and dirty. Uncomfortable stay. Need in say more? Do not do Jots. This place is totally horrible. Please post TA!

Thanks to a very helpful lady in reservations, we were able take advantage of the "penthouse". We didn't need all the room but it sure made a hit with my two teenaged grandsons. Basically a whole house above the Resort store, this is an ideal spot for a large family get-2-get her. With 4 bedrooms and at least 3 sleeper sofas, it is easily able to handle a group of at least 10 up to about 16, over sized fully equipped kitchen, large dining area, and Living room with a view. My favorite thing was the full length balcony with a large BBQ at your disposal. Plus you are right over the fish cleaning station so you can get all the hot scoop on where they are biting. We have put out the word to several friends with large families and are even considering our own family reunion next year. oh yeah, we have stayed in and been happy with other rooms at Jot's but this was a real treat, thanks to the staff.

Last time my stay at Jot's was very disappointing. New opinion is much improved. Night stay was $125 a night. Room had new carpet, paint and very updated. What a view. Watched a salmon caught right in front of our room for the balcony. Would now stay there again. If you havent tried Jot's lately, you may want to give it another try...

Room Tip: Take a room on the top floor for a better view of the river.
