Grants Pass to Roseburg lodging

We will be on I5 at "stopping for the night time" on our trip from San Francisco to Vancouver. We will be in the Grants Pass/Roseburg area. I am having trouble finding anything better than a 2 or 3 * motel. Does anyone have any recommendations for something a little better?

Seven Feathers is in Canyonville between Grants Pass and Roseburg. Several levels of dining choices, entertainment and, although I haven't stayed there, the hotel looks nice. There are pretty nice motels in both Grants Pass and Roseburg, but if you're looking for something a bit more exciting this might be it. Avoid the gambling and the price will be right, as well. The Camas Room is their upscale restaurant. The Cow Creek Restaurant off the casino has a great breakfast special and is good at any time of the day or night (has a fantastic buffet on weekends). The Creekside Restaurant across the highway (next to the gas station and truck stop) has very good food at reasonable prices in a comfortable, smoke-free environment.

There are not many choices in Roseburg/Grants Pass other than your standard chain motel...

I have never stayed here-Weasku Inn-but passed it along the drive and thought that looks like a beautiful place to stay- however its fairly expensive-at least for me it is just south of Grants Pass... and right near the reminants of Savage Rapid Dams(they just took this dam out last summer to unblock the river for salmon-it was a big deal around here).

Maybe you might like a B&B, some people don't like them at all.

We have stayed at both the Seven Feathers and the Weasku Inn. I love the ambiance at Weaku Inn, we have stayed twice in the river cabins at the back of the property. Let me know if you have any specific questions about either of these properties. Enjoy your trip! :)

I found Seven Feathers on the internet after you mentioned it. It looks like it'll be fine for us. Appears to be the quality we were looking for. Thanks for the idea. I hadn't found it in my previous search.

I have just posted a second question but I think it went in the Grants Pass forum. Perhaps some of you can help with this also. I'm wonder how long it will take us to go from Crescent City on 199 to Grants Pass. The road looks very winding on the map. Hard to tell what a safe speed would be.

The only really windy portion of 199 is in the Jedidiah Smith State Park region on the western end of the hwy. Most of the highway is pretty easy driving. Just take it easy on the curves and you'll be fine. It's nothing hair raising. You can figure about 2 hours from Crescent City to Grants Pass.

Here's another place you might check out: thelodgeatriverside.com/MN.asp?pg=default . I've not stayed there, but have walked by and peeked in; looks pretty nice. And it would give you more options for dinner etc. than you'd have at Seven Feathers.

As o'poppa says, plan on up to 2 hours for the drive along hwy 199. But you may want to take more time, as some of the scenery through the redwoods and along the Smith River is worth stopping for a longer look.

Thanks again to both of you. Agreeing on 2 hours for the drive is very helpful because we have a fairly long day that particular day and it's nice to be able to spread our time to our best advantage.

While we have not spent a night at Seven Feathers, i do highly recommend the Umpqua Ice Cream cones available there. Even the sugarless variety taste fine.

Haven't been to Seven Feathers in the past year, but last time I stopped for the ice cream I was disappointed to see the parlor boarded up, only to be now replaced by a sports bar. I don't know if you can get cones in the casino cafe or not. If not, a stop a little farther up I-5 in Rice Hill is famous for a couple of ice cream places...Peggy's and the K&R Drive In. I've stopped at Peggy's, but the TA postings seem to favor the drive in
