“Friendly owner, clean and comfortable...”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Arrived after a long hot day , on a motorcycle trip. Owner gave me ice cold water before I checked in and said he could wait until I cooled off to register... Haven't seen this type of consideration often. Room was clean, did laundry... Owner sent over laundry soap, much appreciated. For the price I was well satisfied and would stay here again. The building and grounds show they are trying hard here..

Front desk person was very friendly. Room looked to have been recently updated. The bed was good. It was clean. The floor was laminate, which we have seen a few times on our trip. I think this makes the whole room seem cleaner. Here is the thing, no it is not the Ritz, but it is a basic room, that provides what you need. Slept great. Reasonable rates. Has parking directly in front of the rooms.

I've been a guest at Blue Mountain Motel for approximately 6 months. I have two friendly labrador mixes and the management was more than willing to accommodate my dogs for a reasonable security deposit. Overall, it is a nice place to stay at a cost-effective rate. I recommend this motel to all fellow travelers.

Except for peeling wall linoleum, missing shower curtain, gritty floor, loud A/C, no storage, and debatable security on the door, this was worth the $179/night cost. You can read some sarcasm into that statement--this hotel's nightly price had been jacked up because of an annual event in August in Omak, 5 miles north. The cleaning staff was helpful but could not free up more coffee and didn't change a towel that had to be used as a bath mat (and to mop the floor after a shower with no curtain). The micro-managing owner/manager appeared several times while she cleaned, and I'm sure his presence did not help in the least. Kudos to the cleaning person. Chris was the coherent factor for the hotel and the force that saved this review from a less favorable fate. I stayed in Seattle for a separate event two weeks prior at half the rate and 4 times the hotel. There was no justifiable reason Blue Mountain should be almost $200 (or over $200 with taxes, etc) per night at any time.

Room Tip: Rooms in the "courtyard" style parking lot to the left of the office are quieter.

The pool had blown away in a recent wind storm, the only amenities were a coffee pot with enough coffee for one pot, two packs of sugar and cream, hand soap only, no shampoo, no clock. There was a working fridge, barely cold, and a microwave. The comforter was ripped in three places, we asked 3 times for washcloths and light bulbs and had to finally go to the office to get them. On the plus side, the staff were friendly, the room was clean and the air conditioning worked well. Oh, and this was one of the "better" rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for a south, refurbished room.

I stayed here for two nights during my travels of transition and it was a most enjoyable stay. Chris, the humble and soothing spirited desk clerk was the most polite person one could ever meet. Always smiling and when I had a question or concern, it was solved with expedience. The location is great, peaceful with surrounding mountains and the rooms are cozy with a nice plasma screen TV, fridge, and microwave. Really a great bargain for the price, and the owner is awesome as well, for he truly treats you like family; rather than a stranger. Looking forward to staying here again.

While this is an older motel it is clean, comfortable and the staff go out of their way for you. Beds are comfortable the rooms are spacious. Rooms are in the process of being brought up to date. Price couldn't be beat.
