Hotels can make guests feel larger than life by lavishing them with fresh sheets, maid service, and very small soap. Wash up like a mythical being with today’s Groupon: for $129, you get a two-night stay at Microtel Inn & Suites on Hospitality Way in Sutherlin (up to a $265.05 value). The package includes the following:
- A two-night stay for up to two adults in a two-queen or king suite (up to a $190.05 value)
- A wine tasting for two
- A $25 credit to Pedotti’s Italian Restaurant
- A welcome package featuring local Umpqua Valley products (a $50 value)<p>
In the heart of Umpqua Valley, guests rise cheerily from slumber in The Microtel Inn & Suites’ pet-friendly chambers to amble to a complimentary breakfast or plan visits to an onsite wine-tasting room. Decked in butterscotch and auburn tones, suites with two queen beds lodge up to four guests or one foursquare tournament, and king suites accommodate two. Laughter drifts from rooms, fueled by more than 60 television channels, and patrons surf high-speed internet or trek to a nearby 24-hour fitness center, where treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals helps patrons burn calories during late-night bouts of sleep jogging. Area winemakers parade through the onsite tasting room each Saturday to pour complimentary samples of Umpqua Valley wines, and 16 picturesque wineries located nearby, including Misty Oaks Vineyard and Hillcrest Winery, let guests romp among grape-heavy vines and sample elixirs.
A welcome package steeps the sense in regional stimuli including a bottle of wine from Henry Estate Winery, two wineglasses, two wineglass charms, and locally produced snacks nestled into a basket filled with crisp, Oregon air. Clinking silverware sounds from Pedotti’s Italian Restaurant, where tables groan beneath stone-oven pizzas ($10.29+) and pastas drizzled in house-made marinara or alfredo sauce.
