The heater didn't work in the first room and it stunk so badly of cigarettes, it nearly made me cough. Got transferred to another room, four very scary people started following me to my room and the door locks were broken. I left.

I gave it 4 stars, not because I would rate this a 4 star motel, but for a budget motel, it does the job. The room was clean, bed was comfortable, and there seemed to be plenty of parking. There is a small restaurant/diner attached and we received a $10 credit for food upon check in. Split a breakfast there...

People staying at the hotel were talking loud in the parking lot past midnight. Then in the morning other people were talking around 6 a.m. outside for at least an hour. No manners. Lots of cigarette butts along the sidewalk. Need some butt containers so people don't just drop them on the ground. On the positive side, I appreciated the...

The hotel needs updating but the beds were comfortable and the rooms fairly quiet. There was heat as well as air conditioning. It looks like some rooms have long term tenants. The hotel is off the main highway and close to stores, coffee, and restaurants. The hotel gives a $10 gift card to eat in their cafe. I would stay...

Somewhat outdated motel that is in need of remodeling. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The air conditioner worked well but blows cold air directly on you while in bed. (Rm#44) Even at the low setting it was a bit much. It does beat no air at all. When you check in, they give you a...

I have been curious about the town of Saint Helens, Oregon for months, and rolled the dice with a Priceline reservation and this hotel was my destination. I was pleasantly surprised with the entire property, the room, and most impressed with the unadvertised restaurant and lounge (I didn't get the opportunity to visit either, but I will next time). The...

We were passing through St. Helens on our way to Seattle & decided to stop for the night. This was pretty much the only game in town. The girl at the front desk had an attitude & was hard to understand. The room was just like any other Best Western. There were a couple of good restaurants locally which made...

This was the only place to stay for 4 nights due to last minute booking. The food wasn't something I would eat again. The hotels are out dated. But they were clean when we arrived the first night. I wasn't expecting much and wasn't really disappointed till later in my stay. The only staff member I talked to that wasn't...
