I ended up having to get a room in Prairie City because the hotels in John Day didn't have any availability. I was a bit skeptical, but was very pleasantly surprised! The room had very high ceilings and a great fan - they had installed an air conditioner in the window because they were having a bit of trouble with their system. I appreciated it because it was quite warm. It cooled the room off nicely and I only needed the ceiling fan at night. Traffic outside is audible, but it is a pretty quiet town. I found the community kitchen a nice touch and was able to put my lunch supplies in the fridge, which was a great help. The bed was comfy and the decor simple, but classy. I wish I would have had more time to hang out in the lobby or out on the back porch. I would definitely stay here again.
