Best Western John Day Inn
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in John Day
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 24, 2011

I have stayed in John Day on multiple work trips, and the Best Western is far and above any other hotel in town. It is nicer than most other Best Westerns I have been to. The bedding is top notch so you sleep well, which makes up for nice but slightly outdated bathrooms. Each room has a flat screen, mini fridge, coffee maker, and wifi. Breakfast is available downstairs, with waffle maker, and other standard fare.

Room Tip: If you don't mind stairs, the upstairs rooms are quieter.

The a/c worked well. Very quiet room. New beds & bedding. Excellent staff. Dinner literally across the street. Breakfast was ok. I personally prefer hot eggs but there was a variety of things to eat. Good coffee. The only downside for me was the hot tub was not very hot and the switch didn't work very well. The pool was a little cloudy in the water but I did not swim in it. Best nights sleep on this long road trip so far.

I have stayed at the Best Western in John Day for fifteen years and have been very satisfied with the accommodations...unfortunately the economy appears to have driven the government rates up logarithmically. We paid more to stay in John Day ($113 per nite) than in more urban communities around Oregon (eg. Bend, Pendleton, Baker City). The amenities are terrible...plastic cups, poor internet, cold breakfast...I will make arrangements to take my government rate to another vendor. Our government deserves better rates and accommodations.

Very clean motel, close to, food, attractions and museums. Dining at the within one hundred feet at "The Outpost" was the best dining we found in the area.

Older property, nicely updated. Quiet, spacious, very clean room with very comfortable beds. Refrigerator and microwave in room. Nice breakfast selection. Stayed here one night while on a rockhounding trip. Better than the BW plus we stayed in the night before. Might be a bit overpriced. Would stay here again.

We couldn't believe how much space we had in the room. Everything looked and worked like brand new - refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, tv, wireless. The bed was very comfortable, although no blanket was provided and I hate comforters. We had just spent 4 nights in a very cramped motel room in Baker City, so it was worth the price to just enjoy hanging out in pure comfort and within walking distance of Kam Wah Chung museum and main street restaurants. We also walked the path along the John Day River - very pleasant stay. The staff are not the best and warmest, but we like to travel somewhat anonymously, so that was fine with us.

Weary from driving all day and having enjoyed our Best Western experience at Reedsport the previous night, we drove in to this one. Big mistake! No one came to the desk for awhile, and when I asked for a room I was told "We're full--the whole town is booked up!" Now this place is a long way from other motel towns(in both directions) and I about cried because the next motel town was at least an hour away and it was already 8:00 PM! She said nothing at all, no I'm sorry, nothing. As we drove out of the lot and turned the corner, there were two motels with vacancy! When we told the lady at the one around the corner about Miss Annoyed saying the town was booked she said that she told people that the night before. What a _____! Is there a filing job for her, away from contact with the public? Sad...
