“Inexpensive and Clean”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

Checked into this hotel for a one night stay after a recommendation from a more expensive hotel. I was able to park right outside the door of my room. The room was comfortable and clean. I accidentally left some belongings in the room. The manager called to let me know, and held the items for me. I appreciated the honesty and friendly service.

Really clean, very quiet, stayed here quite a few days & enjoyed it very much. Would recommend to anyone. Easy in and out access with wrap around driveway. Right in the heart of downtown & walking distance to everything anyone could need. Very comfortable beds. Excellent TV reception. Free WIFI. Great coffee!!! Best of all it's pet friendly and entire motel staff is always pleasant and helpful. Couldn't ask for more. :)

Room Tip: I like the upstairs rooms because of the great mountain views!

When you are spending $50 bucks a night, I don't think you should have high expectations. With that being said, we received the room we expected. The key for us is location and this is right near the center. It is not like La Grande has fancy hotels in the center. We stayed here because the price was right. Things were clean but not fancy. There is no breakfast but they did set out some fruit and packaged pastries. Again, what do you expect. We would stay here again but don't expect to be wowed. Beware of the train noise which rumbles in the background at night.

Very friendly and helpful very nice and clean rooms for the money. You can' find a hotel near this price where i come from and the service is still not as good. Great location right in dowtown also. Also very impressed with the wifi signal strength very good and fast.

La Grande being the objective we pulled into RM. It is improved since last we stayed, which was a couple of years ago. Quick check in and adequate room.
As noted there are newer matresses in at least our room; carpet seemed different from last time also.

Thinking it was an exit for another hotel we were looking for, we accidentally found the Royal Motor Inn and were glad we did. Choosing to stay here because of it's AAA rating, we found an older motel with remodeled rooms that are extremely clean and being maintained very nicely. It's a few miles off the highway and had basic amenities but also included a small refrigerator, microwave, TV, free wireless internet, and small breakfast to include pastries and coffee for a price that can't be beat. The owner, Karl, and his wife, Ruby were very nice. Just before we were ready to leave, after talking to Karl for a good while, he suggested we might like to visit a historical site called Hot Lake Springs, across the highway in northern La Grande....and we're so glad we did. Thanks for the advice Karl....and we would definitely recommend your motel to our friends heading your way.

This place is a nice old style motel, very easy to reach from the highway, and at a great point to use it as a stop in road trips.
This motel is very cheap (probably the cheapest in La Grande). The service was good, and the room was clean enough. We were 4 in a double queen bed room. The room was quite small, but confortable enough.
I would totally stay there again, and I would reccommend this palce to family and friends!
I booked rooms on hotels.com website, it appears to be the only website that has this motel.
