“pleasant stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

This is an older hotel, but it is well-maintained and clean. The staff was congenial, friendly, and helpful. We needed to purchase some drinks, goods and food, and were able to do so at a grocery store a couple of blocks down the street. We found some really good pizza at a restaurant just across the street. Our experience at the Camaray was all good. We would definitely stay there again.

For the money this place cannot be beat. It was clean, very spacious, and the management was friendly and informative.

Orville is a one horse town. We we impressed that a motel like this was even available.

Highly recommended!

It really is the only motel in town. Our friends happened to be staying at the State camp ground and we decided last minute to join them if we could find a place to stay. This motel is only 4-5 blocks from the camp ground and is centrally located. The staff is very friendly and inviting, the facility is older, but it is well maintained (new paint, flat screen tv's, etc.). Eva's diner and bakery is a great place for breakfast and there is also the Pastime Bar and Grille for lunch or dinner. I think it is good value for what you pay.

Father and daughter from Edinburgh, Scotland UK stayed in a twin Queen room on 16th June 2014. Arrived late and the owner was around to meet and greet. The rooms, clean and spacious, are undergoing progressive upgrade under this husband and wife ownership and management. The standard is good, The owners care for the business and are striving to build its quality and reputation. We got generous help to do our laundry at 10pm. You will be made welcome and you will get good value from hard working people determined to build their business and reputation. The cute cat in the office is just a bonus.

The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff is very friendly and helped me with everything I needed. I stayed there for 2 weeks on business and could not have been happier. If you travel to Oroville, this is the place to stay as their rates are more than reasonable. Thanks Camaray!

Thank you for the kind review. We keep tabs contractor rates in the Valley and know we are one of the best values when we have work crews driving 45 minutes and past several motels to stay here!

With no competition in the town (the other establishment is not in the town of Oroville), the owners can get away with the bare minimum. Smoking is allowed outside all rooms so the smoke smell easily comes in through the old-style heat/AC units mounted under the window. On the positive side: The bed was comfortable and the couple in the office was friendly. There was no hairdryer, coffee maker, iron or ironing board in the room but coffee was available in the office. There is an adjustable, office-type chair (see room pictures on site) but it is just sitting there by a wall... I'm not sure how this place gets more than just a three star/average rating from visitors. Considering the friendly nature of the managers and no competition from other motels in town, if the owners would enforce the no-smoking policy in one of the buildings, refurnish the rooms, provide coffee makers, hairdryers, etc, I'm sure customers would happily pay more than $65 a night and be happy to return. As it is, doing the minimum and blaming it on the age of the building just doesn't work for our family. I will watch comments from future TA visitors and hope to see some improvements at this motel. Until then, we will drive further down the road.

We are sorry we did not communicate clearly enough that complete in-room coffee service is provided upon request as well as hair dryers and irons and ironing boards. I think we'll have to not only list this on the in room information flyer, but also at the front desk. We have found that providing these upon request satisfies most guests needs. We have to be very careful not to price ourselves out of our market, which is not for those who need to stay at a Best Western or Hampton Inn.
