About Oregon Trail Motel and Restaurant

The Oregon Trail Motel was originally built in the 1960′s and had its original claim to fame in 1968 when the cast of the movie “Paint Your Wagon” stayed at the motel during the filming of the movie. The producers of the movie had chosen the beautiful Baker, Oregon area for its natural beauty which served perfectly as a backdrop for their movie.

Amazingly, famous actors such as Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin actually paid to have the motel refurbished during their stay! That gives us a genuine Hollywood connection for all you film buffs out there.

Purchased in 2005 by Mark and Dave, the motel and restaurant have been undergoing various upgrades on an ongoing basis. We’re now known as the friendly place where folks can get a clean, comfortable room at a reasonable price and we even throw in a free breakfast.

If you travel the Oregon Trail or are just passing through, stop by and find out why so many people have been saying such nice things about us.
