Shilo Inn Grants Pass
Ranked #15 of 18 Hotels in Grants Pass
Reviewed 3 August 2010

We stayed one night in the Shilo Inn at Grant’s Pass, OR on July 29, 2010. The motel had obviously seen better days and needs a refreshment badly. However, it was clean, comfortable and efficient at check in and out. The outdoor pool looked welcoming and the breakfast, while sufficient, had to be taken back to the room because there was nowhere else to eat it. Bad: the TV didn’t work, and even after action by the front desk, it kept skipping from the selected channel to the ‘Welcome to Shilo Inn channel’. Worse: the wireless internet connection did not work. The desk staff said it must be my software at issue because she could see no problem. But we had two computers, with different operating systems and wireless systems, and neither could get on the internet. If reading your e-mail is important, don’t trust this place. Further, for dinner near the hotel, there are many fast food places, at least five Chinese restaurants, one Sushi restaurant, one Chicken/ribs BBQ, and the premier nearby dining is a ‘Sizzler’. Yeow.

We stayed here on our way from Seattle to Sacramento on the 4th of July. The room was a little outdated, but fine. The A/C worked well, the room was clean, and the bed was the perfect firmness.

The pool was a perfect temperature after the long drive.

Breakfast was ok, but they need to add some tables/chairs so people could sit and eat instead of having to take their food back to their room or eat standing up. It worked out ok for us as we grabbed some pastries and juice to eat in the car, but it would have been nice to have a place to sit and eat breakfast.

Della's restaurant next door is great! We had a wonderful dinner there and the staff was very gracious.

We would stay here again on our next trip to/from Seattle.

Dear LBeach99 ,

I am glad that you had a nice stay with us on the 4th! After a long drive our outdoor heated pool and soft pillow top mattresses are nice way to end your day.

I am glad you had a great dinner; Della’s restaurant is a great local restaurant to choose.

Hope to see you on your next trip through… until then, best wishes!

We stopped here for the night on our way south. The free wi-fi worked and the free breakfast was adequate, although there was no place to sit, you had to either take it back to your room or eat standing up. The price is competitive and the room comfortable.

We had a very short stay as a half-way between Portland and San Francisco. The room was large, clean and quiet. We did not explore too much, but we had no unpleasant experiences. The room was a good value, and we would stay again. Hotel staff were pleasant and efficient.

Great way to start our 30th Anniversary trip through the Redwoods and scenic coast. Shilo was easy to find. We got excellent recommendations from the friendly staff including Laura the manager who made us color coded maps of different routes to take on our trip. Our room was clean and comfortable and the price was right! We will definitely stay here on our next trip!

While I got a good Priceline rate, I wouldn't have felt ripped off by this property if I paid a published rate since they were slightly lower than all the other similar properties on my date (although I will say in general Grants Pass is kind of on the pricey side). It's a good motel with some slightly upscale features like an in-room iron and ironing board, a blowdryer, shampoo and free wireless internet. The room decor, while kind of dated 80s/90s looking, it was still not divey. The room was pretty clean. Nothing stood out as particularly un-clean as some of the other reviewers reported. The breakfast was meager; cereal, juice, coffee and a couple of bread options, all in a small rather cramped room. At least it was included in the rate.

The staff was friendly and helpful. When I needed to print out a boarding pass for my next day's flight, the clerk was happy to assist me with that. Sweet.

Overall, an okay place to stay.
