I stayed here in late February and have to thank the hotel for their great job. Everything was great, clean nice rooms, good internet, hot brekafast, and front desk was able to fax things and make copies as well. I will use you guys again when I'm back in town.

Consistently clean and friendly with continental breakfast. I have never had a bad night's sleep here. It isn't fancy, just a great place to rest and recharge before you head out traveling in Eastern Oregon or heading back to Portland metro. The continental breakfast had some interesting choices, such as Little Debbie donut sticks which I've never tried but chuckled when I saw them...they would be total gut bombs, but hey their just not my thing. I'm more of a fresh fruit and oatmeal type girl, but I love to see how other people eat when they travel. There are plenty of other offerings and many of them are healthy here, so don't let that sway you from staying at this nice establishment. I love to stay here and walk around John Day, which is a lovely little town. I have always encountered super nice staff here and they are so friendly and helpful. Couldn't ask for nicer people!

The previous reviews for this place were some what mixed, but my experience was very good. Perhaps improvements have been made? The room was large and clean room with a comfortable bed. Desk staff was pleasant, efficient, and knowledgable not only about the hotel but also with good places to eat within walking distance. I didn't use the available indoor pool, and not sure I would as the water did not look the cleanest, but it might be fine. Hotel was fully booked when I arrived in August, and by the look at some of the other choices in town, I was very glad to have had a reservation here. Would stay here again without hesitation.

Rooms were clean and up to date. Frig was a pleasant surprise. Pool and hot tub could have used a hose down as dirt and dust had been accumalating for a while. ASK FOR A ROOM FAR AWAY FROM THE FRONT DESK PHONE'S REMOTE BELL. This is a fire alarm like bell located on the ground floor at the inside corner of the "L" shaped building. Everytime the front desk phone rings, this bell will ring too. It alerts the hotel staff of incoming phone calls when they are away fromt he front desk. I was on the upper floor and not too bothered by it but if you had a room on the ground floow near the inside corner, it would drive you crazy.

Room Tip: Upper floor is better. Less noise.

I have stayed in John Day on multiple work trips, and the Best Western is far and above any other hotel in town. It is nicer than most other Best Westerns I have been to. The bedding is top notch so you sleep well, which makes up for nice but slightly outdated bathrooms. Each room has a flat screen, mini fridge, coffee maker, and wifi. Breakfast is available downstairs, with waffle maker, and other standard fare.

Room Tip: If you don't mind stairs, the upstairs rooms are quieter.

The a/c worked well. Very quiet room. New beds & bedding. Excellent staff. Dinner literally across the street. Breakfast was ok. I personally prefer hot eggs but there was a variety of things to eat. Good coffee. The only downside for me was the hot tub was not very hot and the switch didn't work very well. The pool was a little cloudy in the water but I did not swim in it. Best nights sleep on this long road trip so far.

I have stayed at the Best Western in John Day for fifteen years and have been very satisfied with the accommodations...unfortunately the economy appears to have driven the government rates up logarithmically. We paid more to stay in John Day ($113 per nite) than in more urban communities around Oregon (eg. Bend, Pendleton, Baker City). The amenities are terrible...plastic cups, poor internet, cold breakfast...I will make arrangements to take my government rate to another vendor. Our government deserves better rates and accommodations.
