“great place to chill out”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

Tucked away this property is a real gem. Very clean and well appointed rooms. Great Internet speed and nice TV. Would like to have stayed longer, next time we will. Walking distance to shopping and a quaint town. It is rare Best Westerns disappoint, this one certainly doesn't.

The basics were okay; the extras were lacking. There was only one chair--the desk chair--in the room and the clerk seemed to think that his was normal. It isn't. It was a queen sized room for two people. Where's the other one supposed to sit? In the bed? (There wasn't even a lap tray for that purpose.). Our room--222--was the most remote one on the property. The good: It was quiet. The bad: WIFI was frustratingly spotty. (Again, the staff seemed more concerned that the coffee maker didn't work than that the WIFI didn't work.). The breakfast room is a converted guest room--and thus tiny. Breakfast staff was very nice and the food par for the course for a Best Western (i.e., fair).

Room Tip: 222is great if you want quiet (and don't need two chairs). Not so good if you want to use your...

This is an older hotel with outside balcony access to each room, but it has been up dated and well kept. The breakfast was the normal free breakfast with full choices. The room was nicely appointed and we like the fact that the sink was outside the shower and toilet. It appears that there are few choices in this town, and this happens to be a place that was pleasant with no surprises.

Room Tip: All the rooms face the main road and parking lot, so any significant noise can be heard, but mainly...

This BW is nicer than 2 BW "Plus" hotels I stayed in during this 3 week road trip! Friendly late night desk staff, clean rooms. Breakfast was fine, I've had better and worse BW breakfasts. The town of John day is about an hour from John Day Painted Hills monument,45 from the Visitors Center.

The hotel breakfast average for a hotel, which means bad. The hotel overall was fine. They goofed on my coworkers checkout, but it all worked out eventually. room internet worked well. I would unenthusiastically recommend this hotel.

The hotel is very attractive and features nicely decorated rooms. Staff is helpful and pleasant. I especially liked having the breakfast room separate from the lobby with the door open on a sunny morning still cool enough to avoid air conditioning. I appreciated having a laundry room since I was on a long cross-country trip.

We had such a great stay last year, that we came again. Once again, it was ANOTHER GREAT STAY!! We have stayed at other places in John Day, and the Best Western is, without question, the BEST. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Breakfast was included, and it was GREAT. Our room was Squeaky clean, modern and well-appointed. Beds are COMFORTABLE!! If you stay anywhere else in John Day, you are taking your chances!!!
