I called the Best Western and was greeted by a grimy sounding woman who told me they were sold out. So I called the Sandman and was greeted by a friendly voice confirming they had availability. I booked two rooms for two nights. I was a little nervous as the reviews were all over the place and the name was a little odd to me. We arrived at La Grande and could clearly see the hotel's large sign from I-84. We had an easy check in with a kind staffer (woman with tattoos). We opted to stay on the second floor since the first floor is pet friendly. There was no elevator so something to keep in mind if you have awkward luggage. My room (212) was clean and roomy - your typical business travel hotel room. And what more can you ask for than clean?! About 7:30pm we decided to change our travel plans and were able to cancel our second night with no problems. I didn't notice the highway noise in my room even though we were close to it. We didn't try the continental breakfast - went to Joe and Sugars downtown for a nice local breakfast. And ate at Mamacita's for a lunch and a dinner which I highly recommend. (Request to add this restaurant to Tripadvisor has been made.) I would rate this hotel as good, perhaps a 3.5. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and would recommend to other fellow business travelers.
