In the Dreamer's Lodge, we found a comfortable, safe, enjoyable accommodations we were looking for in the John Day location. The lodge as well as all the staff, and especially the overseers, are extremely mindful of their guests. They go out of their way to ensure that the guests have an enjoyable stay with them. We were happy to stay...

When you're on a road trip it can be an adventure to step out of the box and check into a small town, home owned type motel....but we're always up for an adventure! Given that the Best Western two blocks down the road was $112 a night....we thought that $60 for a room at the Dreamers Lodge was worth a...

The Dreamer's Lodge is an old-school motel and for the price ($65+tax), it's a good deal. Our 2nd floor king room was large and clean with two upholstered chairs, a work table, free Wi-Fi, a flat screen TV, and a micro and fridge. It's right downtown and has easy access to the Outpost restaurant which we went to for dinner...

Accommodating and polite staff, quiet area, plus with no vacancy on a Saturday so I was glad we had a reservation. Good location near the fairgrounds which was fun because there was bronc riding that night. Would stay again.

This motel was such a pleasant surprise! We had automatically called the Best Western to make our reservations, but they were booked. Thankfully, or we wouldn't have found this place. Clean, comfortable, conveniently located right next door to a great restaurant with excellent breakfasts, and a friendly, helpful staff. And the rate was $78 with all the taxes and such...

We stayed here for 3 nights recently and found the hosts to be very pleasant and helpful. They really tried to make our stay pleasant. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The toilets seemed to be made for children, but that was the only negative thing we could say about the place. restaurants were nearby. Even though it was in...

I have stayed here several times. Not much has changed over the years a hotel stuck in the past. Clean rooms & we had no neighbors on the top floor so it was nice & quiet. Really the best price in this town, $70 for a king room & that includes tax. Didn't see the staff but our room was...

Was in John Day for a competition and was close to where I needed to be. The room was clean with microwave and fridge. The bed was okay. Nothing real special but I would stay again if I was in the area. The people at the front desk were very nice and helpful.

It is quiet, close to an OK restaurant and the price is right and it is clean. In John Day, you probably can't do much better. Be sure to visit the museum in town, it has a unique view of the Asian history of the area. The owner was happy and efficient and the room was fine.
