Skyhook Motel is located in the town of Mitchell. If you have ever been to the Skyhook and had the impression that it resembles a series of connected cottages rather than a motel, you would be right. These cottages were salvaged from the World War II shipyard town of Vanport after the devastating flood in 1948.

quaint town and quaint guesthouse
quaint town and quaint guesthouse. From the top of the cliff, chairs outside the rooms provide a lovely view of the town. a wonderful place to unwind. The owner is very friendly and gives a discount for paying with cash.
Funky little place, fine for one night. Clean and comfortable enough. Probably overpriced for what it is but I understand owner has to make ends meet. Hot even with fans in August but can't blame as we knew in advance. Only thing I would have liked was for the spiders and webs to have been vacuumed out of the bathroom window and over the shower.
NICE OLD STYLE MOTEL
nice older style motel in eastern oregon. hostess was extremely frielndly giving us a closer rom after seeing my travel companion was 94 and in a wheel chair. she also met us on returning to our room as it was raining real hard with an umbrella and a helping hand getting mary up steps and to our room. i have never had a host do this for me in my 60 years of traveling. a real winner in my words and a reason to go back if ever there again.
Quaint 40's motel.
Friendly. Little service. no fridge. not clean. No ice 2nd day. Not cleaned after day 1 for 2nd day. Nice view of Mitchell. Good bed. Tepid water in shower. Lots of hot at sink. coffee pot--no coffee. Good heater. Nice ancient counter w/sink. In tiny "kitchen" area. Some dishes. Poor lighting for reading. Chairs not comfortable. Probably not a whole lot different than the 40's when folk didn't have so much and motels were something new.
We had the suite with 2 separate bedrooms. The apartment was very cosy and clean. The beds were very comfortable. Perfect place to stay when you want to visit the painted hills. It is very close to the painted hills and the Sheeprock unit. Mitchell is a small cowboy village, nice to have a look. We enjoyed our stay in Shyhook Motel.
