“I tried to like it.”
Reviewed 24 July 2011

Once you get over that you will spend a 100 dollars to stay in Bandon in the summer then one can fairly review La Kris. We drove up to the hotel and it looked nice but oh,boy is the parking lot small. Checked in and walked across the parking lot to our room. We exchanged pleasantries with all the other guests staying that night as they were all on the front porch or with their doors wide open. More on that later. The room was nice, clean, set up well but uncomfortably warm so we opened all the windows and went to downtown bandon for some food/drink. We went to bed and right away we noticed the very bright porch light kept our room lit up. Our solution? Place the couch protector over the thin drapes to block the light. Next problem, due to it being warm we opened all the windows to allow fresh air in (which helped) but now made the room noisy with traffic from the 101. It got so bad I could tell which lane the trucks and cars were in as they passed as one lane had a manhole cover that resinated a metallic sound when run over. The Manager/owner was pleasant. If those two issues were addressed, one as simple as installing blackout curtains, and the other admittedly more complex some sort of room a/c or at least a floor fan to move the air around a bit and to provide some white noise to perhaps stifle some of the road noise I could recommend La kris to others. As it is I probably would have spent a little more to get the amenities that go with the chain hotels in the area.

We are sorry to hear about the challenges this guest faced. Bandon's temperatures are generally very mild with an average temp in January being in the mid 50's and in July being in the mid 60's. For this reason, most of the motels in town do not have air conditioning. We do, however, have a few fans available at the front desk.

Cute, cozy but not claustrophobic, the room had a tiny whiff of mildew smell, but was clean. My husband is sensitive to molds, but I didn't notice a problem. The owner/operator is friendly. The only real problem related to moisture (obviously, since it rained and was semi-foggy and near the coast, moisture hangs in the air.) We like fresh air when we sleep and left a small window open. In the morning we had to turn on the baseboard heat to dry things out. After using the shower, even with the fan and heat lamp on, it took forever to dry out the bathroom so you could see in the mirror.

After researching other motels and vacation homes in the area I decided to book two rooms at the motel based on previous reviews. Rooms 2 and 4 were ready upon our arrival with minimal interaction with the owner. The rooms were small but had everything a large chain motel would offer. The no smoking policy was great but we observed smokers outside their rooms smoking which resulted in the second hand smoke entering our window. I would recommend the entire property be smoke free which would have eliminated the problem. The inside of the door was dirty and there was no extra toilet paper in the rooms and the office was closed. Also the shower head was old and funky but the shower stall was recently updated and clean. The bed was ok but did not look to be a queen size as advertised, but I could be wrong, a king size bed would not fit in the room but is sure would have been nice

We appologise for the dirty back of the door. This, and the lack of extra toilet paper, will be brought up with the housekeeping staff. We appreciate the feedback and will use it to improve our service.

This is a small motel right on the highway in Bandon, so it's not scenic, but it's just a few blocks' easy walk down to the Old Town area and the harbor. Room was tiny but immaculate and cleverly decorated. Has fridge, microwave and coffeemaker in room, and the most comfortable bed of my whole trip. Excellent value for the price.
