A family owned hotel/inn located in Rufus, Oregon. Uniquely located between the Deschutes and John Day Rivers on the I-84 Corridor.
Great overnight spot
Fantastic overnight stay here. Comfortable, clean and spacious room. Good bed and bedding. Wonderful ac, fridge and microwave. No breakfast but there are places nearby. Very quiet. No traffic noise thru triple glazing. If looking for a stay in the area do not hesitate
An unexpected gem!
We were looking for a halfway point to break up the drive from Yellowstone to southern Oregon, and the tiny town of Rufus looked like a logical stopping point. We found good reviews for this totally refreshed motel and called to make a reservation, which was a good thing as its a small motel and it filled up. Our room, while small, was spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. There must be decent sound proofing, because we didn't hear highway noise or our neighbors and slept great. The price was super reasonable! Its wonderful to be able to support a small family motel instead of a big corporate chain. Two thumbs way up for this great little motel!!
A hidden gem!
After years of driving by Rufus, we decided to book a room, and do some fishing on the John Day River. What a pleasant surprise when we opened the door of our room! Everything has been ... not just updated... but completely redone! Clean, clean, clean, with pleasing color scheme, upscale linens, refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. Staff is very friendly. Easy checkout. We will return!
Looks like a motel but more like a 3 star hotel
This is the nicest and most reasonable motel in which we have ever stayed. It is run by a family that has obviously put quite a bit of $$$ into upgrading the interiors. The windows are triple pane for abating I-84 noise, so it it quiet. The beds are excellent and way better than most motels. Rooms 4 and 5 are larger with a kitchen and sitting area. Woodwork, paint and wall coverings are also very nice. And a block down the road is a great trucker centric dive bar/steakhouse. All in all, this is a fantastic place to stay if you are on the way somewhere, visiting Maryhill Museum (amazing Rodin collection), or just traveling.
Traveling for work as usual! Convenient location close to the interstate and the gorge. Rooms are clean and cozy. Bed is very comfy. The staff is very friendly as well. Sad they are all booked next week or I would stay next week as well! Love all the wood on the walls, great ambiance. Give this place 6 stars if I could.
