Just back from staying at the Hillview Motel in Rufus Oregon. What a fantastic place this is! They have the cutest rooms to choose from, and the rooms are setup as good as a 5 star hotel! Everything looks new, and if that’s not enough they also gave a voucher for a free breakfast at the Bulldog restaurant which is...

We came upon this delightful Motel tired after a long day of driving . It was such a pleasant surprise when we caught the owner Jeanie just heading out to feed some animals. She immediately came back inside and welcomed us graciously. After signing us in she was so excited to give us directions to local attractions . We were...

Perfect place to stay for MaryHIill concerts.!! We had our reservations for a concert in June, which was canceled and we were never notified. The owner called us, letting us know of the cancellation and if we still wanted the room. If it hadn't been for him we would have driven a looooonnnng way for nothing. We made the rescheduled...

The motel reminded me of the small pre-Interstate motels. The rooms are a bit small but adequate, and very clean. I like the wood paneling, gives it a cabin feel. Has everything needed for a good nights sleep. I didn't see an ice machine, but may have been it the office. I liked it, reminded me of family trips when...

We had a room with a smallish but Very comfortable bed. The room had a kitchen with a full size kitchen. The room was tastefully decorated and EXTREMELY clean😊 The owner was onsite and helpful in directing us to activities and bike routes. This is the closest lodging to Maryhill. We were very pleased we chose motel.

I had one of my best accommodation experiences EVER here! After a frustrating experience with a reserved campsite being taken and all accommodation full in many cities around, with a concert that weekend, Genie called me back to let me know about a cancellation. She stayed up until about 12:30 to wait as my friend and I drove back from...

For several years, I have wanted to stay at this motel. I finally got my chance! My 14 year old granddaughter and I stayed here. It was on my "Bucket List"! It was everything I imagined; clean, quaint, comfortable beds and pillows and wonderful hosts. Our room had a queen bed in the front room and a twin in another...

Spent one night there last week en route to home base in Portland Older motel, lovingly restored by owners. Our room was clean and spacious, wood lined walls adding a certain country character to it all. Good location, just off the highway, close to the Columbia River. Good value for money - would stay there again.

And an amazing complementary full breakfast. We followed the advice of other yelpers and stayed the night in Rufus. The host, Dan, was super helpful and nice on check in. The place is modest and rustic but very clean, comfy sheets and beds and perfect for our needs. And now we are thoroughly enjoying breakfast at the Bull Dog cafe....
