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.

The rooms are recently renovated with very nice decor and quality items. The bed we had in our Jr King Suite was to die for! We slept the best night ever in all of our hotel stays - period. The staff was very professional and personable, breakfast was good as was internet service. WOuld highly recommend this hotel to anyone...

Friendly staff, clean and updated. Has restaurants and stores within walking distance and nice small town. Breakfast was good with a nice variety. Stayed here while visiting the Fossil Beds but was actually farther than we thought. Location worked out, since we were heading to the Steen Mountains after. Would stay here again.

Recently renovated hotel. Room is a good size with a comfortable bed. A little bit of road noise, but can be cancelled out by the efficient AC. Relatively large indoor pool and guest laundry. Simple breakfast but with a good range of basic food.

Check-in was much more pleasant than most. Morning crew was also nicer than many. Just a calm and relaxing overall experience. So many hotels are making life more difficult than it needs to be. I travel by motorcycle, and they had a place and supplies to wash the bugs off the windshield as many Best Westerns do.

Nice motel. could use an elevator for us folks with trouble climbing stairs. Ran out of breakfast one morning but quickly made more. Room was clean and comfortable and staff was very friendly. Would stay here again but request a ground floor room.

Well appointed, comfortable place to stay in John Day. I'd booked way ahead for our summer trip and paid only $117 per night for a king, very comfortable bed, a large swimming pool hot tub area and huge all inclusive breakfast. I'd definitely stay here again.

Spotless room. Comfy beds. Keurig in the room with different choices. and happy employees. The restaurants recommended were all within walking distance, I'm glad to say. The pool & spa were equally clean. Thank you.
