Enterprise and the Ponderosa Motel are a great base from which to explore the spectacular Wallowa Valley. The motel is very clean and cozy, though I will not give it a five star rating until they replace the beds which can be uneven. It is not as sound proof as it should be but that is not an issue if...

Check in was easy and painless. The room was clean, the bed very comfortable. I really enjoyed that the A/C was controlled by a thermostat on the wall and that the A/C was duct-ed into the room and not up into the window. Refrigerator and microwave were nice. Enjoyed the sink outside the bathroom. The outside of the motel was... More

We travel to Enterprise on our motorcycles at least once a year. We have always stayed at the Ponderosa unless we made a mistake by not making a reservation or not arriving in time to get a room. It is a very biker friendly motel and we probably enjoy the parking lot "get togethers" as much as anything at night... More

The Ponderosa Motel has been a regular destination of ours over 5 years of motorcycle touring in the area. It always provides the best sleep, super clean and they give us a bag of clean rags to wash our bikes. It is that kind of continued consideration that makes this our favourite place to stay each year. Keep up the... More

Great location and very spacious room. The staff was wonderful and you couldn't get a cleaner room. Our only negative comment is the bed was terrible. The staff said new beds are on order. I told them they need to post that when they arrive. We left one day early because we couldn't take the bed another night.

Were greeted warmly by the front desk at check-in. When asked about restaurants in town to eat at had good advice and copies of menus. Room was "spot-on" clean and nice. Great value for the price. If in the area again would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I love to travel in Central & Eastern Oregon. We live in Portland but our hearts are to the east. One of our favorite spots is the Wallowa valley in Northeastern Oregon. We go to bird, camp, and just drive around seeing the sights. We usually go in winter for birding, but spring, summer and fall, also... More

Lets start off saying I am what you would say a hotel snob. Due to my employment I spend a lot of time at major brand hotels. I gotta say they are my first choice. But when your out here there is not a lot of choices. I took a chance and stayed here. Ended up being a great choice.... More

By far, the Ponderosa Motel had the most comfortable bed of our recent travels. The room was comfortable and clean. The extra thick and soft cotton towels were an added bonus. The only major maintenance issue for our room was that the deadbolt didn't exist on the entry door (even though the knob was there - weird). I prefer a... More

Enterprise is a small town when going to Hell's Canyon and the Ponderosa is a good place to spend the night. Clean, quiet and comfortable at a very reasonable price. No breakfast but there's a great little diner just down the road. Just ask.
