The hotel was great. Clean & comfortable. The staff was very kind & helpful. The hotel has done some improvements since we visited John Day and they were very nice. Hopefully we will be able to stay there again on our next visit.

Staff was amazing and very accommodating. Keurigs in the rooms! Staff always left extra pods for me. Breakfast was good and always had an assortment of items. Cute little Best Western with indoor pool that felt like a sauna; which was good compared to outside.

It was clean and friendly atmosphere. Staff was helpful. My motherr needs a accessible room and it fit the bill. The shower was perfect for her. The beds comfortable and breakfast is included. John Day is an interesting area with many places to explore.

Everything was what you would expect from Best Western and it was nice to know there was a place in John Day that we could depend on having a clean, comfortable, up to date room. The breakfast buffet was good and plenty but missing sausage or bacon. They did have the good ole cowboy biscuits and gravy, but that's not...

Average Best Western with an above average price. The room was clean and staff was friendly, always a smile from everyone I dealt with. The breakfast wasn't bad, typical waffles, eggs, etc. The only negatives were the air conditioner was noisy and the wifi very spotty. Thought it was over-priced for the area.

Fine overnight facility but the breakfast bar was barely OK. The bed and the room was very comfortable. It was clean. It was convenient. As stated the breakfast bar was very poor.. Best Place to stay in John Day Oregon

This motel has been nicely modernised and we found the staff very helpful. The room was a good sized, very clean and the shower was big enough to lie down in! This is probably because the shower replaced a bath when the motel was modernised. The complimentary breakfast was very good including egg, sausage patties and fresh waffles.

Good value for the location and great place to stay! Love the super soft beds, comfy pillows and the couch. WiFi reception was poor but that could have been my tablet too. Helpful staff, clean rooms, pet friendly, good amenities.

We pulled into John Day without a reservation, and didn't know what to expect. The motel had just completed a remodeling. It was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was better than average. We definitely recommend it.
