“It was decent, breakfast however was not”
Reviewed 10 September 2011

Clean rooms, good family options. We had a 2 room suite as we needed 3 beds. Do not book through hotels.com!!!! Nothing about the reservation was right or was communicated to the hotel.

The breakfast could hardly be called that. Coffee. Dry toast. Quaker instant oatmeal. And juice that was basically water. How about muffins, milk, yogurt, cereal? Something that could be called breakfast?

Staff was pretty flexible about departure times. They could use more chairs outside the rooms.

Room Tip: Call hotel directly to book reservations!

I was stopping by to find a place to live in the area and received a very warm
welcome and the gal Jeanne asked if I wanted to stay in the room they filmed the
movie, Management in. I have seen the movie about 4 times and loved it. So it
was very COOL to get to stay there, The room was well equipped and very clean.
I would recommend this place to anyone.

We stayed here with our two children during a long road trip from California to Montana. Sonny's Motel was affordable, quiet & the rooms were clean. The beds were a bit hard for our taste - but we all got a decent night's rest. There are restaurants & stores near by. A great overnight stay during a road trip.

We could not have found a better place to regroup after 10 days on the road adventuring in wild places. They gave us a room right next to the laundry room and the hostess even gave us her coffee pot for the night. The washer and dryer worked great and the price was right. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The refrigerator worked great. Madras has some decent dining options and it was a great place to restock for the rest of the trip. Good wireless internet. While it is on a busy road, the room was quiet. The hostess was extraordinarily helpful. We will be going back to see some of the places we missed and we will definitely stay at Sonny's. It was a great value,

One of the best motel experiences in some time! They must be under great management/ownership because I can honestly say they have accomplished a feel that most places have no idea how to create! The pool, the location, the staff especially you geenie ;) yeah you ya tiger you! was great! Even got a one and million picture with 10x madras drag race winner sir Ed Glaab!! Sonny's is good times!

We spent three nights in this hotel. My boyfriend had to work in the area and I was along as a guest. There aren't many choices in Madras and this was arranged by the company.

It's located just off the main highway, but our room was in the South building next to the pool and away from the road so there was no road noise. The room itself was large with a microwave, fridge, table, chairs, and decent sized bathroom. The decor was all old and 60's motel, but seemed serviceable. The only modern items were a nice flat screen tv mounted on the wall - cable included HBO - and what seemed to be very ugly, but newly replaced carpet. There was also free wifi that seemed to work ok.

They boast a free continental breakfast, but that consisted of pre-packaged danishes and mini plain bagels plus some coffee. When we checked in, someone in our group was told to come early to the lobby because they were running out of food (which they knew the day before?).

The walls are paper thin so you can hear your neighbors, but the worst part was that you can hear the drunks out at the pool who stay out well past the 10pm closing time. After one night of this we called the front desk and asked who to talk to if it happens again since desk staff leaves at 10pm. They told us to call the cops?! Seriously? It's your hotel, but you want us to call the cops? They said it would be trespassing so if we had a problem to call the police and provided the number to the local dispatch. Unbelieveable.

The next night was a weekday so there were no more drunks, but as we were getting ready to sleep we spied a strange black small beetle-like bug in our bed. I had killed two others in the bathroom, but it made for a restless night.

The only good thing about the place is that we didn't pay for the room, but at a $65 corporate rate, I think there are better options to be had in Madras.

We've stayed at Sonny's for the past three pre July 4th & thru July 4th for the All Rockhounds Pow-Wow Club of America's terrific rock show at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds; usually about 6 nights. The management is friendly, the rooms large, clean, hi-speed internet, fridge, microwave, TV and guest laundry. Very busy. Lots of folks there w/ speed/ski boats for nearby Chinook Lake. Very decent rooms for a decent price.
