After a long day checking out the Painted Hills, this was a nice hotel to rest our tired and hot feet. The room and bathroom was clean. Beds were comfy. Nice TV, wifi, indoor pool (didn't feel too warm), and nice hot/cold breakfast. The town is small. The hotel is a short walk to a few places to eat (few...

I have stayed here many times. This time, the rooms have been remodeled with new refrigerator and microwave. Updated bathrooms. Good breakfast.. not great. Easy walk to dinner with optional restaurants. I do wish they had just regular Pepsi in the vending machine... all they had was diet, cherry diet and regular cherry Pepsi...

We usually stay in a Hampton Inn or some other hotel where you have to haul your luggage up an elevator, but it was so nice to back up the van right in front of our first floor door to unload. With 4 young grandsons on a 12 day driving trip, this was a welcome convenience. The pool house was...

Stayed in a recently remodeled room. Bed was great. Room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was good and there were a variety of food items to choose from. This is only my 2nd time to drive through John Day and this is the absolute best option. Will stay here again.

This was a great place to stay in route east. The room looked like it was recently remodeled. Beds were comfortable, AC worked well. Kids loved the pool but said it was cold. Breakfast in the morning was plentiful. Some fresh fruit or yogurt would have been a nice addition but none of us left hungry. It's also perfect walking...

This property was newly renovated. The staff were friendly and helpful It can be difficult to get rooms from June-August in John Day. There are few choices in John Day, but after frequenting what is available, this is my number one choice. Other hotels will charge same price and may not offer breakfast.

We were here for a family visit. The pool is great . Room is clean!! Breakfast had a good variety . Also staff was all so helpful, kind , and happy. It is really close to downtown so there are restaurants within walking distance. There is not a lot of large parking spots.

Typical Best Western at best. Rather dark room. Nothing special but the price which was above market price for this motel. That being said the staff was courteous. A short walk to a OK Pub with good food. Look for a better choice in John Day.

Stayed two nights over the Memorial Day weekend. Great experience. Clean room. I think it was recently remodelled. Comfortable and quiet. John Day was my base for two days of motorcycling and the Best Western was a great fit. Easy to access nearby restaurants like the Outpost and local coffee shop. Will return.

We have stayed at this motel before and appreciate the upgrading they have done and are doing. We could see a new key system that does not require inserting a key, just placing the key on top of the lock's screen. That is cool. We love not having a duvet on the bed but instead having a blanket. The heating...
