Nice clean quiet motel , Ashley was very helpful and welcoming. Everything needed in the room for a comfortable night. Easy access to dinner spots and a free breakfast. I will plan on returning here on my next rock hunting trip.

The hotel staff was accommodating, and the complimentary breakfast was definitely on the five star side (as such breakfasts go - keep that in mind). The rooms are comfortable, though at the far end of the building as I was, the wifi seemed just a touch slow (then again, it could be John Day and have nothing to do with...

Our daughter bought my husband and I a pug puppy for Christmas so she and I drove to John Day on February 2nd to pick the little guy up. We drove at night in snow and freezing rain but made it safely to John Day. We did not have reservations but the Best Western had vacancies. The office and continental...

Place was packed with people travelling during a blizzard. Staff tried very hard to arrange rooms for travelers who where, frazzled, scared, angry, and tired. Parking was a mess and was some distance from my room. Breakfast was very ordinary. Pool looked inviting but with snow blowing and the wind howling, I gave it a pass.

Hotel is an updated version of the 2-story motel - open walkways. Room was large, clean and comfortable. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good, but not as much variety as some other BW's we stayed at. Coffee was very good. Good location for exploring the John Day fossil beds

Staff was amazing and very accommodating. Keurigs in the rooms! Staff always left extra pods for me. Breakfast was good and always had an assortment of items. Cute little Best Western with indoor pool that felt like a sauna; which was good compared to outside.

It was clean and friendly atmosphere. Staff was helpful. My motherr needs a accessible room and it fit the bill. The shower was perfect for her. The beds comfortable and breakfast is included. John Day is an interesting area with many places to explore.

Everything was what you would expect from Best Western and it was nice to know there was a place in John Day that we could depend on having a clean, comfortable, up to date room. The breakfast buffet was good and plenty but missing sausage or bacon. They did have the good ole cowboy biscuits and gravy, but that's not...
