It was a little dirty and way dated. And it was cheap! $65 with taxes. Two beds, comfortable enough. Fridge, TV and continental breakfast to boot. Let us check in at 1100 at night and were friendly. I'd stay there again. Get your travel goods and gas early because just about everything is closed by 1100.

Reception was friendly and helpful, BUT this place needs to be cleaned up. The TV service in the room was not function so I was allowed to use the neighboring room. The stairway to the room was dirty. La Grande and the folks in it appear depressed for a more cheerful setting drive on to Baker City.

We stayed for two nights. Our room was clean, but the carpet needed vacuumed. Flat Screen TV, fridge and microwave. For the money, this place was quite nice, and more than expected! The front desk clerk was so friendly and helpful when we checked in. She went over and above to get us into a room next to our daughter....

We did not have a very helpful desk staff - felt like we were interfering with her phone call at check in. Our room was small and had a bit of an odour and dated (old style TV), but clean and cheap. Walls on the thin side. Adequate.

We needed an inexpensive place to hit the hay and get back on the road early. The Royal Motor Inn fit the bill. We booked the day of our stay and found a clean room, no problems with check-in, at a great price.

2 rooms were heated-up for us when we arrived late on a Thanksgiving trip through town. Such a good experience, we reserved the same rooms on the way home. Karl & Ruby (husband & wife owners) made it a friendly and welcome trip.

We stayed here for one night while driving to Idaho. The room was basic but clean. The problem occurred when trying to sleep. Our king bed dipped in the middle which was so uncomfortable. But the noise from the rooms next door and above as well as passing trains was intolerable. The walls were so thin we could hear next...

My family stayed one night on the weekend, we were happy. It's obviously an old property, but was clean, and the bed were comfortable. Wifi worked fine, TV worked fine, and all was as advertised. Staff was friendly as well. There was coffee and wrapped pastries (Hostess, Little Debbie) by the front desk in the morning. No pool. The walls...

I've had worse. It's clean and not too small. You get a cup of coffee in the morning. Ruby who runs the place is a gem though. The location is good too. It is probably the most central motel in the town. The garage next door is cool too.

“Downstairs room heard every sound from room above.”

“Upstairs rooms are probably quieter.”

“Parking is limited to standard sized vehicles. RVs and long trucks would have to be parked in the neighborhood. I have a small SUV, so it was no problem. You can park in front of your room at ground level. Very helpful for unpacking. I don't believe there is an elevator to the 2nd floor rooms. If you have a lot to carry, or struggle to get up stairs, request a ground floor room.”

“I had first room beyond office, the parking space for that room is shifted due to landscaping directly in front of the door, so your car isn't directly outside the door (you have to zig zag about 20 feet. Really not that big a deal but if you want to be 5 feet from your room, ask for a room farther down the parking area. The room itself was wonderful.”
