“We will never be back”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2011

The motel lobby smelled like animal urine. When we got to our very tiny room we discovered that 2 bedside lamps did not work at all, the furnance cover was off (assume for repairs so thank goodness we didn't visit in the winter), and we could not get the TV to change channels. When we asked about the TV we were told to just turn it on and off by the power button on the TV. So at that point we decided the lamps were not going to be fixed. Then, later on in the evening our small dog drug out a sock from under the bed - clearly indicating the room had not been cleaned. They had 2 air conditioners in the window by the kitchen - not sure why but the newer one was covered up by a window covering and had we not moved it to look out the filthy window to the dog yard out back we would not have seen it. I am not sure where the fab reviews came fom but this was not a pleasant experience for us. We are not used to $200 a night rooms so that wasn't the problem. These folks need to either get a cleaning crew or give up on the hotel business. Also, don't take your dog for a walk outside the small lawn area as there are puncture vine thorns every where. At $53.00 a night clearly a bad choice.

Just finished staying here and we were pleasantly surprised. The husband and wife duo that own it are super sweet. The style is very retro and clean, beautiful linens and towels. No pristine white here, it actually feels as comfy as home! We have 3 children so we need two queens, and not only did we get two queens but they are separated and in mock bedrooms! We will definitely be staying here again!

We stopped in La Grande for the night looking for a pet friendly motel. This one looked clean and cute from the outside. Inside, the room is small but very quaint with flowers (not fresh) by the bed. It had a coffee pot, refrigerator and microwave. We were very pleasantly surprised. Nothing fancy but better than Motel 6.

We found the managers/(owners?) homey and friendly. The room was tiny, but had what we needed for a quick trip home. It was decorated in a homey fashion and although you can tell it's an old motel, and is on the main drag, still was quiet enough for us and our needs. The beds were good and the price makes it affordable for us! We are just about to make reservations for our annual trip back! We've tried three other places and choose to return here.

We decided to research to find a good value in La Grande. We found it!!
There is nice wall color, quilt on the bed, very firm bed, micro wave, refrigerator and a large coffee pot and a good location.
We paid $35.00 plus tax. You will not be sorry if you chose this nice, small motel!!
