If all you need is a clean bathroom and a place to sleep, this is it for $59 a night. We stayed here our first night on the road and again two weeks later on our way home. Ruby, the proprietress, is friendly, funny and very talkative. While the motel is clean, it's old and not in the best shape.... More

Not a big fan of holes in the ceiling, peeling wallpaper and worn down fixtures. Water and ick on the toilet seat, shower temp was backwards. Chipped counter tops, frayed towels, cleaning supplies left near rooms outside and rags next to lobby door. 2 star rating is generous. It is clean and close to historic downtown

This is a very low cost hotel and you get what you pay for. The bad: somewhat run down, towels probably need to be replaced, pillow case cover had holes in it, the carpet has stains, the TV didn't work very well, and there was a strong smell that I couldn't identify. The good: it's cheap, the room was clean,... More

We had a nice stay at this downtown motel. You can walk to nearby shops, the weekend market, and restaurants. It's an older style motel so you have to accept that for what it is - smaller rooms, somewhat updated, but clean and cared for. The beds were comfortable, the shower fine, and a basic small TV with cable --... More

We were on a road trip to Utah. Not looking for the "lap of luxury" hotels we were more interested in fixing a meal and getting good rest. This motel provided for our needs. When we checked in we were given keys to a couple of rooms to choose between mattress firmness. I will certainly choose to stay here again.... More

This was a queen room. It was average size, clean and quiet for being on a main street. Frankly it's better that several "higher end" motels that I have stayed in. I have really been pleased with all my trip advisor recommended motels. I have saved so much by looking at these realistically priced motels-reading the reviews and taking the... More

My husband and I have been here before, about 8 months ago. The price is great..but place seems dirtier. We rented one of the pet friendly rooms...and a faint odor of pee permeated the room. King size bed was old and worn..kinda mushy. The staff is very nice..but the place really needs a thorough cleaning. Sorry to say we won't... More

Because of some of the negative reviews, my group of 8 motorcycle riding buddies were worried when we checked in to the Royal Motor Inn. We needn't have worried. The beds were VERY comfortable and the infrequent passing of the trains didn't bother us a bit. Service was good including unplugging a toilet problem and providing us with rags to... More

We were on our way to McMinnville about a month ago and had been driving a U-Haul and truck with a dog and cat for 2 days. We rolled into La Grande at one in the morning and were falling asleep at the wheel as we got into town. We had to stay somewhere that accepted pets and nobody would... More

“Downstairs room heard every sound from room above.”

“Upstairs rooms are probably quieter.”

“Parking is limited to standard sized vehicles. RVs and long trucks would have to be parked in the neighborhood. I have a small SUV, so it was no problem. You can park in front of your room at ground level. Very helpful for unpacking. I don't believe there is an elevator to the 2nd floor rooms. If you have a lot to carry, or struggle to get up stairs, request a ground floor room.”

“I had first room beyond office, the parking space for that room is shifted due to landscaping directly in front of the door, so your car isn't directly outside the door (you have to zig zag about 20 feet. Really not that big a deal but if you want to be 5 feet from your room, ask for a room farther down the parking area. The room itself was wonderful.”
