I took a gamble on Buona Sera when recently traveling from Sacramento to Vancouver. When I travel alone, I travel as cheap as possible, but usually I get what I paid for. Buona Sera is different, very different. This is the cleanest hotel room I've ever stayed in, and the bed was reasonably firm, but not too firm. The room itself was small with a tiny bath (but it suited my needs), and a nice kitchen with a fridg, micro wave, plates & cutlery, and table & chairs. There was also a good size TV and dresser. The room was well appointed with pictures, bedside tables & lamps, and blinds on the windows instead of drapes, and an AC/heater. Parking was directly outside the front door. My room was also a pet friendly room, and it had no animal smell at all. The owners were there to meet any concerns I had, and were very friendly and courteous. All this for less than $70. Buona Sera is a definitely keeper for my north and south travels. I'm sure you will agree if give them a try.

Room Tip: My understanding is each room in this inn has a different theme from a stsandard room to a romantic...

Overall a very good value for the price. Spent 6 nights here Aug 2014, here's a summary:

Owners: manage and live onsite; they are 100% accomodating.

Rooms (Eleganza) - on the PLUS side:
very clean
wall a/c works well to cool the room
park right next to your room
wi-fi and catv very good
comfortable beds, decent bath towels

Rooms - on the NEGATIVE side:
small but adequate for 1 or 2
had to use a/c a bit while sleeping to keep room reasonably cool, makes noise as expected
driveby noise - expect this, even from a room furthest from street...this place is right on 3-lane one-way street that feeds into downtown.

Other:
Decent breakfast stuff for small place - choice of various coffee's, muffins, yogurts was good.

Room Tip: probably a bit more quiet (car street noise) in rooms at the rear.

We stayed there last weekend. The room was amazingly clean and the bed was comfortable. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The location is great for going to places downtown. Our room was quiet, even though we were near the street.

Again, clean, quiet and perfect location for downtown enjoyment, ran the streets, enjoyed the decorative bears and early continental breakfast!! This is our new spot on our journey to Washington State! Highly recommend this hotel!

Spent an evening there with my wife. Probably like you reading this review right now, we were to be traveling through Grants Pass and wanted a hotel for a night. Saw the good reviews for Buona Sera on Trip Advisor and decided to make a reservation. Glad we did. The reviews for Buona Sera are favorable for a reason. A very nice little motel. Clean, homey and the staff is very friendly. It's centrally located. All-in-all, a really great motel, especially for the price.

Room Tip: The Morning Glory room is next to a laundry room, but you won't hear any noise from it.

No, this is not a Four Seasons hotel, but I wasn't expecting that. What I was expecting from the other reviews, and did get, was a nice, clean spot to lay my head for a night. The owners were very nice and the rooms were very clean and beds pretty comfy. We didn't spend a lot, and got a great value! Thanks for the nice stay!

It's hard to ignore the 120+ excellent reviews for this hotel but maybe none of them stayed in room 1, closest to the highway and with an unbelievably loud air conditioner and very uncomfortable bed. Yes, the room was clean and the towels were fresh but you can't change the location. It was the worst nights sleep either one of us has ever had! We tried turning off the roaring of the jet plane air conditioner and opened a window. The cars and trucks sounded like they were headed straight for our room! Unless you like 50's style motels, close to the road with miniscule rooms, I would not recommend anyone stay in room 1.

Room Tip: Do not choose Room 1.
