This is a fantastic cute hotel with B&B-style decor in an otherwise unremarkable location of Grants Pass. In fact, the location is not great if you want something scenic. Staying closer to the river might be nice for vacation, but that's a trade-off for price and the fact that the Buona Sera Inn is central to everything.
AAA rates this a one-star property, but I believe they have made a terrible mistake that sadly affects business for these wonderful owners. A two-star rating would still be a bargain for the traveler, but probably more appropriate given the lack of room service and other amenities found in three-star properties.
The owner/managers are nice and take great pride in their conversion of this single level Motel 6-type facility to something completely unique and memorable. You just know when someone pours their heart into a project and this is a case where you'll know it once you step foot on the property.
We took two rooms and were able to look into several others, as they were being cleaned. The rooms are custom furnished with antiques and hardwood floors and are kept sparkling clean. I was able to get wireless Internet on my laptop and we were offered fresh supplies of towels and linen for the pull-out bed.
If you are looking for a underrated hotel with great character in a central location of Grants Pass, you must try the Buona Sera Inn. Their website has good photos of the rooms, and unlike some hotels I've experienced, these accurately reflect the rooms you would stay in.
