“Room was clean and quiet”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

I stayed one night at Sonny's. I didn't have any of the problems some other reviewers found, so perhaps this motel is a hit or miss sort of thing. My room was roomy, quiet, clean, the bed firm and comfortable. The breakfast was far too late for me to partake, so I can't speak to that. The advertised 'associated' restaurant is out of business, but there are several within walking distance.

Room Tip: Get the room next to the housekeeper's storeroom-no neighbors.

Needed to stay in Madras for one night. Kind of a business/pleasure trip sort of thing. We always stay at the Inn at Cross Keys up the road and absolutely love that place, but sadly, they were sold out. We picked the #2 best rated property in town, which was Sonny's Motel. Really big mistake.

Briefly:

- They lost our reservation (made through Expedia). Should have left at that point, but our CC was already charged.
- Dirty (carpet, walls etc...).
- Extremely outdated. Try to find a place to plug in a cell phone charger or laptop. Impossible.
- Loud. Sounded like highway 97 was going through our room.
- Loud. Parking just outside the room. Cars just outside our room, car doors closing, car engines idling, car lights shinning in our room. All night! Very ungood.
- Loud. Heater sounded like it was going to vibrate right off the wall.
- Toilet did not flush correctly.
- WiFi did not work.
- The "included" breakfast was simply pathetic. Actually, gross.

Advice for my fellow Madras travelers. If the Inn at Cross Keys is full, drive to Redmond and avoid this place like the plague!

This guests reservation that they paid for online through Expedia was not lost by us. We never received the communication necessary for their reservation. Their ordeal did serve a purpose, in that I communicated with the online reservation people and they were faxing to a wrong number. Here at Sonny's we are going through some transitions in working to upgrade our rooms. We are recently under new ownership and are trying to address some much needed updates. We provide a light breakfast that consists of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, juice, quaker instant oatmeal, apples and oranges, white and wheat bread or English muffins for toasting. A TRADITIONAL continental breakfast would be a Danish, coffee and juice. There are restaurants around town for everything else. We are a motor inn type of hotel with parking in front of most rooms, many people like that aspect of our set up, for those who don't, I help to find other options in town. All of us here at Sonny's motel strive towards our guests satisfaction and we appreciate reviews good and bad, but also please let us know while your here how we can make your stay better.
Thank you, Jeannie

What a wonderful place to stay! We arrived late, at the end of an 18 hour, 1000 mile motorcycle ride. We were exhausted and it was getting pretty cold outside. When I made the reservation, I said that we would be late and Jeanne was waiting for us at the door. She was very gracious and her kindness was much appreciated. Our room was quite large and even had a Jacuzzi tub! Luxury! It was clean, well maintained, comfortable and very quiet. Best of all, it was inexpensive. We were sorry to have only planned a one night stay. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed here in August. We were on a long drive after visiting Bend, Oregon. Bend's accommodations were all booked up! Thank goodness Sonny's Motel was open and had a vacancy. Its an older motel. Its well maintained! The rooms are spacious and with tv's. They have an outdoor. The lady working reception was friendly. She allowed us to have a night swim that seemed magical under the stars. I think there was a continental breakfast but we got up too late to take advantage of it. We managed to get breakfast at a near by gas station that has a cafe. It was a good breakfast, good service.
There's not much around Madras that we could see but if we're there again, we would stay there again.

We ended up in Madras when there was nothing available in Bend or Redmond, OR. We were traveling with a 5 year old who had never been more than 4 hours from home and this was going on an 11 hour day. What an amazing find! We were there only overnight but the room seemed larger than usual, the beds were very comfortable, we had a fridge and microwave, the room was clean and the price was good! The front desk person was a great help. Will stay again when in the area!

This is a great place to stay! The manager was very sweet and very helpful, she suggested a great place to have dinner and the coffee in the morning was yummy. The room was nice, clean and spacious! The pool/hot tub was amazing! We will be staying here any time we are in town!
