When we arrived the man in the office was not friendly. My husband ask if he had some coffee made? He didn't answer him. And he said something about how early I had booked, I told him I book early so I know I can get a room where I want. He did say, well that's alright. As for as the room it was clean, with toaster oven & coffee pot combined, Microwave & frig. Very nice shower. Floor was a bit squeaky.

Booked online. Room was clean and comfortable. Nothing spectacular but it was a good value for the money. Rooms appear to be updated. Bathroom is nice size. Flooring was a bit uneven by the sink with a soft spot. Other than that, I'd stay here again for a quick trip.

My only disappointment on my 5 day vacation all over Oregon. A 'blind' booking, I didn't spend more than $70 per night on my trip. (Solo trip, 5 days, 1600 mi., food, lodging, gas, museums all for apx. $500) I had really good luck in Bend, Salem, and Rockaway with 'blind' bookings, but this place fell short. Old, felt run-down, and a bit of a language barrier with the accent when checking in. I'd try another 'budget' motel next time.

Very reasonable price, clean and up to date TV, microwave, toaster oven combo coffee maker. Nice shower, comfortable bed, AC/heat all at low end cost. Walk from here to old historic downtown, Burgerville one block away, craft brews 2 blocks or craft brewery 7 blocks. And the National Neon Sign Museum has just opened with an amazing historical collection and educational displays of American illuminated signage from the beginnings.

From the the outside, I may have kept driving. However, room was great, updated,clean, comfortable bed. One of the best rooms we have stayed in on our week long journey across the states. The couple working at that motel was super sweet and helpful. You should stay here, well worth the price.
