“Excellent value with superior service”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

this is a well-run motel with basic accommodations, but very good service. The rooms are small, but clean and well-maintained. There is an excellent choice of TV channels. The staff were friendly and very helpful when i left an item in the room. For the price, it is excellent value.

Room Tip: rooms at the back of the property are quieter

I've stayed in this motel twice and it is a great little gem. It is one of those ma and pa hotels that is kept super clean and the owners are super friendly and helpful. Be sure to make your reservations directly with thei owners by phone as the online booking agency doubled the price for some reason.

The town is a sleepy little place and you can avoid the hustle and bustle of Corvallis by staying here. It is easy to get to from I-5, about a 15 min. drive, by taking the bypass around Corvallis.

We often stay here when we come and go between the coast and the valley. The basic room is $35 a night and you get a microwave and a fridge, maybe a coffee maker on a good day. The rooms are cheap motel standard issue but they are always impeccably clean, and it is clear that the owners take pride in their little motel. Don't expect the ritz, the sheets can be somewhat threadbare, the pillows a bit lumpy, but it seems like more and more that the cheap motels aren't just a bit rundown, but dirty and hostile. The Galaxie isn't like that.

Having family in the region we looked for a place to sleep and found it in the Galaxie, the only motel in Philomath. Honestly, we did not expect too much, but we were surprised by the friendly welcome, the microwave oven and the coffee maker in the spacious room (#27). As we stayed for eight days we found the daily cleaning to be perfect. Although the motel is located on the highway to the pacific coast (to both Waldport and Newport) the room proved to be very quiet probably due to the low speed limit on the highway. The hotel is inexpensive and can be recommended as an alternative to the more costly lodgings in Corvallis.

We stayed here for two nights for a friends wedding and were very pleased. The price was amazing, $55! We were kind of scared that meant it would be run down, but on the contrary it was very clean and well taken care of. There was even a full kitchen in our room! Stove, microwave, Full refrigerator, cupboard, and sink. They had direct Tv and the bed wasn't uncomfortable. :) No coffee maker in the room, but I don't drink coffee so I wasn't bothered. They may have them on request, I'm not sure. The family that runs the place takes pride in their little motel. It's like stepping back into days past when "mom and pop" places were more common and affordable. Even the soda machine was sixty cents!
