Clean, quiet, comfortable! In addition to our room, Mom stayed in an Accessible Room. It met her every need! Close enough to town to enjoy the shopping, yet just a bit out to be a property that has lots of land so that you can sit outside and enjoy the summer evening! An added bonus are the deer (we saw...

Hello Bunkport85 - Thanks for leaving such great notes for other guests to see! We do feel a bit spoiled by our unique location and outdoor setting....complete with wildlife arriving on cue! For many travelers today, this is an enjoyable addition to a night's lodging that one might not find elsewhere. Here's hoping you can visit us again! Loy Helmly...

We recently were able to spend 4 days at this wonderful hotel. The room was very comfortable and clean. The decor was delightful. The staff was very helpful and friendly and were able to accommodate our rather large group quite well. I am looking forward to a future stay.

Dear Lorigee630 - We really appreciate you taking the time to provide a nice review of your recent stay with your group.

Second time here with a large group. Rooms are large and clean. Staff is great. Pool and hot tub are large and water was always clean and warm. Provided breakfast was OK. Only complaint was there was only one microwave available for pre made omelets and burritos. A grocery and restaurant is across the street. Downtown Sisters is a short...

We love our annual stay here. Rooms are clean, quiet, and spacious. The pool wonderful, as well as the hot tub. The grass around the motel is luxuriously green and lush ... perfect for picnicking with families or large groups on tables with umbrellas. Gas is a block away. Grocery across the road, and downtown Sisters is just up the...

Enjoyed this BW as a home base to explore the area. Able to bike around the area on roads with not a lot of traffic. Walking distance to anywhere in Sisters and only 20-30 miles from places such as Smith Rock State Park, Bend and even SunRiver. I would stay again. Only negative was the news program played each morning...
