After trying some of the budget choices in this area over the past few years, I chose the Villa Inn for this year's stay based on recommendations from locals. This Best Western has been here for decades, but recently underwent complete renovation--from facade to room interiors; it's like an entirely new structure. It's located right off the interstate (but my room was delightfully quiet), in a shopping center that includes surprisingly good Indian and Mexican restaurants (the Thai place had a fast food/Subway vibe, so I didn't try it), several discount stores (e.g., Dollar store, TJ Maxx), and a convenient gas station.
My stay was 12 days. Check-in was professional and friendly. I had neglected to specify a 2nd floor room when I reserved online, but the woman at the counter quickly checked with housekeeping and verified the availability of a room on the 2nd floor and accomodated my preference. The room is small (how much space do I really need to sleep in?), but very well laid out with queen bed, chair + ottoman, generously sized TV (with a large array of cable channels), dorm-sized fridge (larger than "mini"), microwave, iron + ironing board, coffee maker and hair dryer. A big plus is the outrageous number of electrical outlets--each lamp (1 desktop and 2 beside) provides 2, and the desk has 3 more (making 9 conveniently located outlets without counting the more conventional wall mounts near the floor). Charging multiple devices simultaneously is no problem, and the free wifi was strong and steady.
Special kudos to Celia and Sam (names provided on hospitality cards) in housekeeping: no other room I've stayed at in the Roseburg area has come anywhere near the standard of cleanliness here! Carpet, bathroon and surfaces were unfailingly clean, coffee/tea supplies and toiletries always replenished, and abundant towels were always provided. The work you do makes all the difference in the quality of a guest's stay, and I sincerely appreciate the superlative attention my room received!
The only quibble I can come up with is that the tub drain was slow, so I found myself standing in ankle-deep water by the end of my shower. This is a very small nit to pick, though!
This motel offers a free breakfast and evening refreshments (including hot soup during my October stay) which I did not try, and the pool area was, of course closed for the season, so I can't comment on these aspects.
Summary: the Villa Inn checks all the boxes: clean, quiet, attentively serviced and reasonably priced. I'll be staying here on future visits to Roseburg. less
