Looking for budget-friendly lodging in Newberg, Oregon wine country? The pet-friendly Best Western Newberg Inn is clean with a welcoming staff in Willamette Valley wine country. The two-star hotel is well-located and within walking distance of restaurants and shops near historic downtown Newberg.
Whether you are visiting Newberg for sporting events, attending school graduations, (George Fox University is minutes away) or looking to explore Oregon wine country, the budget-friendly Best Western Newberg Inn can’t be beat for affordability. Certainly there are plenty of luxury lodging options in this Willamette Valley wine country setting, but if you are traveling with children or pets, this Best Western is a wallet-pleaser.
You’ll still receive the Best Western service, free wifi, free parking and complimentary breakfast you’ve come to expect, but with the added bonus of waking up in the charming small town of Newberg. I’m a Best Western rewards member so I always get the best rate on hotel rooms. It’s free to join the rewards program and your points never expire. On this trip, I took advantage of their complimentary water at check-in and I had my preference of an upper or lower room. By the way, this two-story hotel does not have an elevator. Keep that in mind if you travel with lots of luggage.
With 51 rooms, 16 of which are suites, there are options for couples, families or friends. My second-floor hotel suite was clean, with a comfortable king bed, table, chair and separate walled entertaining area with a television and sofa. Additionally, there was a microwave, refrigerator, iron and ironing board, hair dryer and coffee maker in room.
Best Western complimentary breakfast
While every Best Western hotel is a little different, the breakfast here was beyond a deluxe continental breakfast. During my visit the breakfast room was staffed by a very friendly employee dishing up hot pancakes, sausage and scrambled eggs. The complimentary breakfast included multiple choices of yogurt, fresh fruit, cereal bagels, muffins, coffee, tea, hot chocolate and juice. Breakfast was available from 6:00 a.m until 9:30 a.m.
Not all rooms are pet-friendly, so make sure to specify if that is a requirement when traveling. On my stay, the pet rate was $30 additional per night with a two dog maximum and 70 pound weight limit. Children 12 and under stay free with parents. Adjoining rooms are available upon request.
There is an indoor swimming pool with a hot tub on the ground floor. As is typical, no lifeguard is on duty. Additionally, there is a coin-operated laundry and an exercise facility with stair-step, bicycle and treadmill.
I am a new resident of Oregon and still exploring this part of Willamette Valley wine country. If you are visiting in the summer, check out a nearby lavender farm or one of the 100 plus wineries within a 10-mile radius. Pick up a cheese board from Good Company Cheese and picnic at a nearby winery, or relax by the indoor swimming pool and hot tub. If you are traveling with pets, the back lawn, behind the hotel, is a good place to visit.
Rates range from $109.99 to $209.99 depending on availability and time of year. The budget-friendly hotel offers AAA rates, government and military discounts and AARP special discounts with an option to upgrade to a suite for an additional $10 day if available. During my stay, the Best Western was offering gift cards for each night after your stay as part of their #SeeYouSoon program. While this program may not be available on your visit, always check the website for hotel discounts.
