Microtel Inn Sutherlin
1400 Hospitality Place, (formerly Microtel Inn), Sutherlin, Oregon, 97479, United States
Inexpensive and Clean...A Great Deal!
A former Microtel, the Sutherlin Inn is a great deal with singles at $39.95 and doubles for $49.95 (as of May 2006). As with all Microtels, rooms are fairly small with an added feature of a window seat below which is the climate congtrol unit and a couple of drawers. But the rooms are maintained by a staff that is instructed to make the rooms perfectly clean, which they are. Free continental breakfast consists of breads, English muffins, and pre-packaged pastries along with locally roasted coffee, hot chocolate, and tea. Free internet access is available via two computers in the lobby and each room has high speed internet access via ethernet cable. In addition the entire hotel is equipped with wireless access.
The staff are very friendly and willing to make restaurant recommendations and answer any questions about the area. This is a great place to stay for the rates they charge. If you find yourself coming to this area or on I-5 and getting a bit tired, this is THE place to put your bags.
Unique Quality: Rooms are immacculate; free WiFi access; friendly staff; very inexpensive for such a clean and quality hotel.
Directions: Take Exit 136 from I-5 and go east. Take the first right at Ponderosa Drive. The Sutherlin Inn will be on the right at the end of the street.
Comfortable, Clean and Cheap
On a long drive from California to British Columbia, it was 10:30 at night and we were thinking it was time to find a place to stay for the night. I was "telecommuting," so I needed to be sure to stay somewhere I could hook up my laptop to upload some work. All of a sudden we see a sign for "Sutherlin Inn -- $39.99/night. Free High-speed Internet." Okay, we've found our place!
Well, there's a PC and an iMac in the lobby that have the free internet access. And actually only the PC has high-speed internet. The iMac is still on dial-up. But for those without a laptop, this is excellent.
There was a data port (for plugging in and dialing-up) at the desk in the room, so that was okay for my laptop. I didn't really need high speed access that night anywa.
Unique Quality: The room was comfortable, the bed was comfortable and triple-sheeted with very soft, cotton sheets and there was TV. And a shower. And it was quiet. And it was cheap. Yeah!
Directions: I5, exit 136. 12 miles north of Roseburg. 60 miles South of Eugene.

Decent food, 24 hours a day
This is next door to the Sutherlin Inn and is lit up bright and pink. 24 HOURS -- food. Something interesting we noticed is that there must be NOTHING to do in Sutherlin. Outside the gas stations, mini-marts and even outside this retaurant, young folks were hanging out on the sidewalk and smoking cigarettes.
Anyway -- at 11:30pm, there were 5 people in the restaurant. The waitress, the cook, a fellow traveler (he checked in to the hotel just after us), Mark and I. Actually, after the waitress took our orders, she had to get the attention of the cook, who was outside, smoking a cigarette. The food was fine. Nothing amazing, but it tasted fine and went down well on an empty stomach. I'm trying to remember, and I just can't.... but hey, if you've been driving all day and are ready to eat something, this is a fine place to do it.
For the past 4 or 5 years on Memorial Day weekend, the owners of the Sutherlin Inn have run a two-day cycling tour out of their hotel. The casual tour riding is through some less traveled roads that feature some of the beautiful scenery in the area. There are lots of valley views with farms and the slopes of local mountains covered in pines. The weather plays a big part in the beauty with clouds often hugging the mountain tops and providing a misty atmosphere among the tall pines. Food is the focus as there is a group breakfast at the White Horse Coffee Shop on the first morning, a lunch stop in historic Oakland at Tolley's, and a gourmet dinner at the White Horse in the evening. The second day features a picnic with provisions purchased at a local grocery store at a picnic ground along the banks of the scenic Umpqua River. Saturday's ride is 26 miles while Sunday's is 43. The pace is very casual averaging 12 mph.
SAG is provided so people can decide to ride as much or as little as they want and also serves as protection for the riders on the few busy sections of road. The folks who do this ride are all very fun, nice, and interesting. And the organizers are two of nicest guys and characters you'd ever hope to meet. It's a great way to experience the area.
Rides start and end at the Sutherlin Inn. Be sure to ask for the bike event discount when making your reservations. Bikes and associated equipment
