Royal Motor Inn
Ranked #3 of 8 Hotels in La Grande
Reviewed November 16, 2006

We were driving US-30, as much of the old highway as we could find, and arrived at LaGrande in the evening, so we just dropped in to the Royal Motor Inn. The lady checking us in said her rooms are REALLY clean. She was right. The cleanest room I can remember, and nicely furnished. It was quiet, comfortable, and convenient. Our car was right in front of our door, and the next morning I walked up the street to a nice coffee shop and bakery. Nice town.

Overall it was a most pleasant experience, and very reasonably priced. We'll be staying with them again next time through.

We stayed here on Memorial Day (May 31st), 2004. The entire town was pretty much deserted.

This is a Mom & Pop place in downtown La Grande. It is run by Frank and Debi Low. They are very friendly and have a nice, attention-loving cat and a small, energetic dog that hang around the front office. Luckily for pet allergic people like me, the motel rooms themselves are completely devoid of pet hair. Debi checked us in and was very friendly. Because so many of the restaurants were closed for Memorial Day, she also helped us find a place to eat dinner - a tiny burger shack about one block away ended up being the only place nearby that was open.

The motel room itself was pretty much what you would expect from a low cost, old motel. It was extremely basic, but nice inside and everything worked fine. The rooms do not come with alarm clocks, so we had to ask to borrow one from the office, but this was not a problem since they had many on hand. Although some of the furniture in the room was worn down, it wasn't depressing at all. The 2 photos of the inside of the rooms on their website make it look slightly nicer than reality, but the photo of the outside of the motel gives you an accurate idea of what the place is like. The sheets and towels were very clean and fresh. Cleaner than what I would expect at a Motel 8 or similarly priced motel. The only regret I have is that we got a room on the ground floor. The ceiling was extremely thin and we could hear everything going on in the bedroom above us late into the night. Even the footsteps of the people above us were magnified loudly. So, if you stay here, be sure to get a room on the second floor. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this motel. It is in a great location within downtown La Grande, relatively close to the University, and within walking distance of the movie theater and shops. Debi and Frank are very friendly, and the rooms are nice and clean at a great price.
