This little motel is nothing fancy but the owner's son was very pleasant, and we appreciated the very clean room, the comfortable beds, the strong shower pressure, and the nice extras like a coffee maker and bathroom rug. We liked the dark wood paneling, which gave our room some character, too. One star off for the incredibly tiny shower stall...

This place is a great find in the middle of nowhere. We had the kitchen unit which is number 4. Quiet setting--clean and lots of room. Fair prices. Don't expect much to do in town, but lots of recreation near by.

Money has been invested in this older motel. The stained walls, the bathroom, the appliances, have all been improved. Near the interstate, there is road noise, it is 85% muffled if you put the window unit on, "fan all the item" mode. No breakfast at all, a little disappointing. The nearby restaurant is crappy. An OK place, a bit cheaper...

A wonderful experience. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. We spent 2 days seeing the sights in the Columbia river gorge. This was a very convenient location (5 miles east of Biggs junction). The room was clean, bed was comfortable, AC, microwave, and cable. The item I recommend is the information book that is in the room. Pointed out...

the room was clean and comfortable and they treat their guests like family. We stay there when we go over to fish the Columbia and have stayed with them for at least the last four years. If we weren't impressed we wouldn't have been repeat customers Also a place to park your boat and truck next to the rooms

I was on a business trip in North Central Oregon and I needed a place to stay for the night. The Rufus Hillview Motel was a wonderful experience. I met the owners who were very personable and provided me with a great deal of information about the area. The room was exceptionally clean with a comfortable bed, cable TV, air...

I needed a getaway location & this was the perfect spot. Rufus is a quiet town, which I needed. Stayed for a week. Owners & housekeeping respected my privacy. Only complaint is the bed was too soft for my taste.

Returning from a long road trip and looking for a comfortable place to stay, who would have thought Rufus, Oregon would have yielded such a gem! Clean room, queen bed, fridge, microwave, A/C separate bathroom, on the larger side, good shower and congenial staff! They've also got some cabins available with private parking (hauling a boat, perhaps?) it's good to...

The Rufus Hillview Motel is a wonderful place to stay. We made last minute reservations and Jeanie was so nice while making the reservation, and if we needed anything she would be happy to accommodate us. Our room was completely updated and very cute inside. The air conditioner kept us cool from the 98+ heat. We also ate dinner at...
