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.

My husband says: My friend and I had ridden many miles before we got to this motel. When we went to the office, the woman working there had a dismissive attitude and said the room would be $265. for a night. When we paid she told us the room wouldn't be ready for an hour!!! This was at 5:30 at...

Average motel, clean, safe, being upgraded and cleaned up. Good parking. Most of the staff is friendly. Continental Breakfast is adequate and tasted good. Decent selection of food. Right off the Hwy for easy access. One member of the staff working on desk has a care less attitude about getting you checked in. Ask for Manager or another employee if...

Comfortable room. Friendly and accommodating staff. Excellent breakfast. In room coffee is Keurig! Walking distance to restaurants. One block from Kan Wah Chung State Heritage Site and close to Condon Paleontology Center and Painted Hills.

Tammy made check in...even though very late....very welcoming Nice remodel on the rooms and lobby. Stay here, you will enjoy your stay. Great restaurants for a small town with several to choose from. You may even be able to watch deer from your room...they visit the area at night.

I'm sure they could have put me in a less expensive room, but at no point was an alternative offered. This will definitely affect my decision to stay there again. I have nothing else to say despite your silly prompts.

Total disappointment: Over-priced compared to other hotel in 75 mile radius. Did not deliever all they advertised on the buffet breakfast. No fresh fruit, no meat. Not even lids for their travel cups. Paid $154. for one night in a rural, scenic area of Eastern Oregon. Recommend going onto either Bend, Redmond, Prineville or up to Pendleton, Or.
