Cheyenne, United States
Reviewed 1 week ago

Easy to get to, centrally located, clean, nice & quiet. Nothing super fancy but for a nights stay it's just perfect! Friendly staff, Nice indoor swimming pool, only down side on the pool is that it is up by the check in desk and a long ways from rooms if you are at the far end.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Tired after a long drive, the female employee went out of her way to be helpful, unloading my luggage for me. I am partially handicapped. Very nice of her. She also provided directions to a nearby cemetery where I wanted to pay respects to my ancestors who lived there centuries ago.

We stayed the night in a suite room on our way through town. Everything was clean and easy to access. Kids loved that they had their own beds. The pool was great, again, kids loved it and were able to work off some steam. The breakfast was terrific, a very nice, updated room with lots of options and just enough...

best motel in the area with the best, most helpful staff. The area is well worth the extra time needed to travel if one is a snowbird going through the area. You will appreciate the drive going north/south through the park and when in John Day, your stay at the Best Western will not disappoint.

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.

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
