Explore Hotel

At our John Day hotel, we welcome outdoor lovers from around the world in town for hunting season or to visit the stunning Painted Hills.

The John Day Fossil Beds are a short drive away and a family-friendly activity everyone will enjoy. The Grant County Fairgrounds are also nearby, and there are exciting events happening year-round, whether its amusement park rides or epic rodeos. Were the only branded hotel in John Day, and we take hospitality and your comfort seriously.

Were also the closest hotel to the Fossil Beds and are a clean, well maintained property. Many repeat guests say that our John Day hotel is the best in town. Whether its the 62 Days Celebration, the Kam Wah Chung Museum or hiking on the Painted Hills that brings you to this part of Oregon, staying in a cool guest room can make your stay even better. Theres plenty to explore, including water recreation at the nearby river.

Located on Highway 26 and 395, our location cant be beat. Motorcycle tours and the BMW Rally pass through town, and were happy to accommodate groups and bikers. The area is one of the stops on the Gun Show SolWest Fair, and the Truck and Tractor Pull of America by Bicycle is a beloved local event. If you really want to get away from it all and soak up the natural beauty of the region, staying at our John Day hotel ensures youre always comfortable while doing so.

Of course, if youre lucky enough to be here on business, our John Day hotel also caters to out of towners here for work. Civil servants with the Forest Service especially enjoy the homey atmosphere of our property. Workers with the Oregon Department of Transportation also frequently stay with us. When traveling for business, you need peace, quiet and updated amenities. Once youve punched out, its the perfect time to kick back and enjoy some leisure activities, like the high school rodeo.
