Of all the hotels in the country, Yelp ranks Itty Bitty Inn #1 in the United States in the budget category - what an AWESOME honor!!!
Yelp just published their national Top 100 Hotels list as summer travelers begin to make plans, already.
We were blown away when we recieved a message from our dear friends from the Mill Casino and Hotel here in North Bend, Oregon who told us about the list.
They let us know some terrific news - we made the list in Yelp's Top 100 Hotels!
After receiving a congratulatory phone call from the stylish and fabled, Mill Casino & Hotel (located just 1 mile south of us), we almost thought it was a prank call...then when the news sank in all of us started doing cartwheels and hugging and crying happy tears!
My Dad would be like, whatchu crying for???
And then my Mom would be like, you let him! - He's sensitive!
And then my chickens would peck at the sliding door because they hear voices and they want bread.
What a sunny day for a bike ride along Highway 101 in North Bend, Oregon!
You can see the mural at the Itty Bitty Inn, which is about one mile north of The Mill Casino and Hotel, in North Bend - Coos Bay.
After biking to Ciccarelli's Restaurant for tea, and then visiting Recycle Video Games I chatted with Annie, the owner of RVG, who reminded me that Itty Bitty Inn never shared the Star Trek Landing Party mural online.
So here you go dear sci-fi fans - It figures that the nerdy video game guru that Annie is, would point that out to me!
As I biked by Captain Kirk, I couldn't help but also film Sasquatch's "I Love You So Much" mural too.
Check out the vid here.
Our Tesla charging stations are installed, tested, and fully operational.
Being able to attract electric vehicles for free car-charging at the inn has been a long time goal for us and now...we have two, Level 2 charging stations and were added onto Tesla's Destination Charging network last week!
We are so stoked and even more stoked to meet the fun owners of these cars as we welcome them (and everyone) into our Itty Bitty family.
After becoming approved by Tesla to install their charging stations, we learned that we would be the very first Tesla charging site in North Bend.
You can find us located south of the McCullough Bridge and north of the Public Library on Sherman Avenue, in North Bend, Oregon!
Thank you so much Lauren Negrete for coming by to visit and chat about economic development, tourism, and hospitality here in North Bend, Oregon!
Lauren is a journalist from KCBY-TV who made time, this rainy day, to have some chai and discuss benefits for Oregon's Bay Area that new marketing dollars could bring! Benefits would not just be to hotels but to restaurants and companies here in North Bend and Coos Bay, Oregon who service them!
Come by and visit anytime, dear friends!
Thank you dear Simon the Muralist!
Your warm energy and smile will accompany our memory of you while you worked, painting these happy murals at the inn.
"I Love You So Much" and "Not Fade Away" animates the decades of life and spirit of the Itty Bitty Inn.
As you drive south across the McCullough Bridge in North Bend, Oregon, you will see our murals on the right hand side of the Oregon Coast Highway 101 located at 1504 Sherman Avenue!
More fun Oregonie artwork at the inn!
Here are some action shots of art work being installed on our north facing wall at the Itty Bitty Inn along Colorado and Sherman Avenue in North Bend, Oregon!
Between rainy days and spots of sunshine, the VW bus and the bears and the chickens are almost done being painted.
Thank you Simon Whiteowl for all of your hard work painting this mural...and all those years showing us that our path can be mellow!
