We originally planned on staying at the motel 6 but this was the only one with available rooms in the entire area. At the 6 they said they NEVER suggest people stay here so when we got here I definitely understood why. This is by far the worst motel experience I've ever had. We asked for TWO single beds but...

Yes, the guy at the front desk is not Mr. Congeniality, but the rooms are clean, the property is a charming throwback, the beds are comfy and there's plenty of hot water. Plus, you can't beat the rates. I gave this a "very good", but with just a few refinements it could be great. Note to my "fellow travelers": if...

I do not like this Indian hotel and do not recommend to stay there while it is in the centre of the Dalles. The price for the room is high. I think the maximum they can charge you is 50 $. I have to admit that the rooms are dated there and have got smell of oldness. The rooms are...

A bit disappointed when I arrived, the owner was not very welcoming and told me that I would not be getting a breakfast even though my confirmation stated that a breakfast would be included. The room was old (pictures shown of the ancient bathrooms by other guests are accurate). However, it was clean enough and was acceptable for a night....

Do not stay here under any circumstances. Aside from it being extremely dirty and outdated the management could not be worse. They are definitely NOT looking out for the best interest of the customer.. They treated us poorly from the moment we got there accusing of us of making an online reservation incorrectly. By that time, it was too late...

Sorry for the way you felt about us. This motel is old construction and we clearly mentioned that on our site. When you checked in you made two reservations for same date and same person , so actually you made two reservations online and we ACTUALLY HELPED YOU IN CANCELING THE OTHER RESERVATION AND DID LET GO REVENUE OF THAT...

I was satisfied with the room until 5am when I was awakened by a mouse trying to get out of the trash can next to the bed. I ended up getting out of there as fast as I could and when I called back later, the owners were extremely very defensive and not willing to do anything about it. The...

if you want a clean place to stay that is affordable stay here. It's a older almost midcentury motor hotel. The style is actually neat and the guy at the desk was super helpful. We had room 140, nothing bad to say about the room other than we heard trains and highway noise. Easy walking to shops and restaurants.

(Just look at the pictures.) The room smelled a little musty. So, we opened the windows. One window had a screen. The other didn't. The paint on the ceiling was peeling and the ceiling was kind of wavy. The closet was very small and it had a stove pipe running through it. The bathroom was, shall we say, very "retro"....

Clean older motel in downtown the Dalles. Good value quaint bathrooms within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. WiFi flat screen TV. A/c a bit noisy but helps to cover road noise. Good for an overnight stop without spending a lot
