My best friend and I wanted to stay somewhere special for our girls weekend. I found it in the Working Girls Hotel. The process of reservation to check out was easy. The staff are very customer oriented and nice to work with. We rented the suite and loved it! Beautiful rooms with character. I would totally stay again and recommend... More

The Working Girls is a great place to stay- we were there 4 nights. A historical building with a checkered past, now a hotel with a collection of rooms furnished in classic furniture. Beautiful high windows and high ceilings. Not fussy at all, sparkling clean, and very comfortable. Bathrooms are modern, the Suite has bathroom within, and the other rooms... More

From the moment you enter and wander up the slanting tilting you know it's something special! We are so tired of modern cookie-cutter motels and ending up behind the guy at the continental breakfast that doesn't know how to operate the waffle maker. The 18-foot ceilings and carefully chosen antiques add to the comfortable charm of this place. Brooke keeps... More

My daughter and two cousins have stayed at the Working Girls at least 5 times and really enjoy the fact that we can rent the entire hotel (6 rooms), has a kitchen, living room, dining room, and many bathrooms. Right downtown and just wonderful!

Been driving cattle across the high desert and hit Pendleton with a pocket full of coins and a mean appetite. The Working Girls Hotel was a welcome sight. First I hit the saloon on the first floor for a belly full of rot gut. That got my fire going. Next I needed a room. Madame Saturnalia got me set up... More

If you have never stayed (or even been) in a bordello, this is the place for you. Located next door to the famous Pendleton Underground Tours (very well worth a visit), this tastefully updated, former "boarding house" is utterly charming. Originally built in the late 1890s, the hotel has hard-wood floors and 18 foot ceilings; the furnishings are Victorian; and... More

We spent one night here (in the suite) and wished we had the time to stay longer. Had great vibes - super cool and clean - tons of personality. One of our best hotel experiences ever. Pendleton, itself was also a pleasant surpise. Cool town worth exploring. Warning - the IPA at Prodigal Sons Brewing company sneaks up on you... More

We stayed two nights in the suite. The first night there was one other guest, and the second night we had the entire place to ourselves. The decor is very charming with beautiful antiques, period wallpaper and lace curtains. Our bed was very comfortable, and there were plenty of towels and other thoughtful items in the attached bathroom. The underground... More

We have stayed in other former "places of negotiable affection" (Flagstaff, AZ; Madrid, Spain) simply because they usually have a lot more character. The Working Girls is no exception. Booking was by phone from France - you have to be persistent, especially with the 9 hour difference, but went smoothly. We arrived late in the evening and found found a... More

Husband and I and another couple just returned from a one-night stay in this amazing hotel. It really was a 'working girls' hotel years ago, and it has been lovingly and carefully restored to its beauty. There are 5 rooms--2 are a suite with their own bathroom--and two bathrooms in the hall. All are on the second floor...you must climb... More
