“Second Time Here----Still an Excellent Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

We were at the Sisters Motor Lodge for the first time about 20 years ago. At the time there was a huge open field behind the lodge with horses and an unobstructed view of the mountains.

We came again in July 2013. While the lodge hasn't changed, Sisters has been developed although it retains a lot of the small town feel with an old west flavor.

The lodge itself is well maintained. There are tiny gardens everywhere and an inviting patio with a fountain and a lily pond. We spent each late afternoon on the patio with a glass of wine and occasional conversation with other guests.

The property is also well equipped with hammocks and birdhouses.

The beds are comfortable, and our room had a good TV and internet access. The rooms are tastefully decorated. You can walk to lots of the restaurants in town.

The motel is convenient and I thought priced well. I also thought the owner was very gregarious and extremely knowledgable about the property, the town, and the gardens for which she carefully maintains.

Thank you for your kind words about our lodge! We are very glad to hear you enjoyed your second visit. No matter how much Central Oregon expands we do try to maintain the wonderful feeling of "home away from home" for all of our guests. We look forward to your return!

On a recent 5 day trip to Central Oregon, our stay at Sisters Motor Lodge was by far, the best part of it. We arrived in the little town of Sisters with plans for taking a 2 hour horseback ride at Black Butte Ranch. It poured down rain on us for 3 days and we NEVER did go on that ride but, we loved our time in Grannies Cozy Cottage and will be returning very soon. Hopefully, the sun will shine on us next time, and we will make that ride. Mary, the owner is very nice, knows everything about the Sisters area, and is more than willing, to offer her help with suggestions, directions etc. Shops and restaurants are close by too!!

We are so sorry to hear your horseback ride was put on hold due to rain, but love to hear you will be returning to us in the near future! Sisters offers a wide array of outdoor activities and Central Oregon weather usually cooperates. So glad you found your favorite room. With each one so unique, we have many repeat guests who either have a favorite or want to try them all!

What a sweet place! We booked a trip to Sisters at the last minute and found this little gem. Adorable place. Very clean, very quiet, very quaint. From out deck, we had a spectacular view of the Sisters. We will be back.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to the honeymoon suite, Room #10, which is upstairs with a deck and a view of the S...

This lodge offers a quite relaxed atmosphere that is more comfortable than your average Hotel or motel. The rooms are very clean and well kept. The grounds are well kept and inviting to just sit around and relax. If you are looking for a different experience than other hotels or motels offer I suggest this place. you feel you have stepped back in time but still have modern conveniences. Mary was very helpful to direct us to any of the actives we inquired about. We would diffidently stay here again.

What a great find for our short visit in Sisters. The view was spectacular. The grounds were impeccable. The owners were very hospitable. We cannot wait to return for a longer visit and yes this will be where we will be staying.

My wife and I stayed a Sisters Motor Lodge last year for our first experience. (Grannies Cozy Cottage)
Very cozy and clean. This year we could only get the Victoria's secret room #9. When we arrived to check in we were met by Mary who was trying to help a group of four find a room. Well our room would sleep four. She offered us the home sweet home room at no extra charge. You didn't need to twist our arm, so we took it. Both years the weather has been perfect. Restaurants and shopping just blocks away. The room had a great view and its own deck. It was more than we needed, and more than we could expect. She also helped us with some restaurant choices and hiking trails. She didn't let us down. Met some very nice people staying there too. Just a great place to stay in Sisters.

Room Tip: Grannies Cozy Cottage is just that, Cozy. Not large, but it has everything you need, and your all by...

the rooms were very clean and the manager was very friendly and helpful. The motel is in walking distance of all the activities down town. We left an item in the room and got a phone call right away to claim it. We will stay here again.
