Super comfortable hotel in the middle of no where, breakfast is amazing lots of varieties, my only regret was staying there just 1 night..

Friendly staff, responsive to needs, great breakfast offerings

Clean and friendly

It was very convenient and very clean

The Desk Clerk (Tammy) was extremely helpful, polite, and patient, when we both had to work on an error that occurred with the reservation date through Orbitz. Several phone calls were made/received by both of us, in trying to resolve the issue.

We had a great room and this is the best hotel in the city. Great location too.

Small but clean and newly remodeled property, good walking distance from a few restaurants and a small park. Due to pandemic many amenities could not be used but can't blame the motel or staff for that.

Well built older motel in an area where lodging is hard to come by. Solid walls so no noise from other guests. You cook style breakfast had a good variety. Good restaurants within a couple of blocks. Perfect stop for a road trip.

Had a very frustrating experience attempting to stay at Best Western in John Day. Had booked and paid for a room via Orbitz. When I got to the hotel the front desk staff said the room had not been cleaned. I asked how long it would take him to clean it, but he was either unwilling or unable to do so and said that there was no more housekeeping available. He did, however, offer to let my family pay full price to stay in a dirty room. I asked for a refund, but he could not do that either and told me I had to contact Orbitz myself. By the time I was done with that there were no rooms available anywhere within 100 miles of John Day and we ended up driving through the night to get back home.

This is a very old roadway motel. Price tag was way over its quality. Noisy, not ready at check in, though obviously no one else there. Location was right on main drag. We asked for a refund because it was unsatisfactory and over priced,. We were refused. They Said Orbitz would have to refund.(we haven't heard back from Orbitz yet) We were charged $179 for a 1960s roadway Inn room!!! We refused to sleep there.

What a difference a few more dollars make! Normally stay at a less expensive chain, but it was time to stop driving for the day and decided to try the Best Western in town. What a treat. Very clean, well appointed, a Kuerig coffee maker in the room, plus the usual ironing board and iron, blow dryer, refrigerator, etc. And a free “breakfast” worthy of the name. Scrambled eggs, sausage patties, biscuits and gravy, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, fresh fruit, cooked oatmeal, waffles, pastries, toast, cold cereal and milk, fruit juice and more. And the Breakfast Attendant Johnny kept everything well stocked and was very attentive. You could tell he enjoyed his work taking care of the hotel customers.

Nicely renovated Best Western. I wish all the hotels would get rid of those environmentally awful shampoo & conditioner bottles! Staff challenges on the day we arrived so we had to wait a couple of hours for our room to be ready. Staff were very apologetic and strived to get caught up. Very busy, sold out hotel in a small town.

We apologize for any inconvenience during your stay. We did a complete remodel of the hotel last year and have new tile, carpet, toilets, bathtub and showers, beds, and all the furniture was replaced. We’re sorry you were unhappy and hope you will give us another chance in the future.
