“Room had foul mildew and mothball oder”
Reviewed 8 August 2010

After reading a reveiw I booked a room for 2 nights at this hotel,only to find the smell of mildew and mothballs overwhelming, when I asked for my money back they said they could give me another room(but the lobby smelt the same) I declined they hesitated,but gave me arefund on my credit card,charging me 10 dollars for going through you. I was waiting for her to process my return at the night window,and my throat beginning burning. Do not stay here. We went down the rd to Best Western.

My daughter and I were visiting a sick relative in McMinnville and only needed a place to sleep for one evening. We had read that this hotel was "alright" so we booked it. We would never recommend it to anyone else even if the situation called for saving money, as ours did! Our room had such a strong odor--a mix of old smoke, mildew, and who knows what else--that our throats were burning. There was a combination cob web/hairball in our bathroom the size of a small soccer ball--seriously!!! The toilet seat was disgusting and the shower was.....well, I showered standing on a towel. Anyway, take it from someone who has never had an experience awful enough to write a review until now....Stay somewhere else.

The room needs to be remodeled, but the condition is to be expected for the relatively cheap price. One of the chairs was falling apart. The advertised free wireless internet was extremely spotty, and the connection kept getting lost. Otherwise, the room was acceptable.

We live just outside of McMinnville and had company come into town the same weekend a water line burst in the guest bath. Our plumber couldn't get to it until the following Tuesday, so we put our guests up in a hotel in town. We chose Scottish Inn because of the price and they were both pleased with their rooms. For what we paid, it was well worth the price.

I'll have to admit, not so much to look at from the outside, but we had a great stay! The room was always clean and well stocked during our 5 day stay. Fast food was within walking distance with other places within a few miles. Our family will be staying there again over the 4th of July weekend.
