Decided to give this place a try instead of the chains in Pendleton. Pet friendly, but there was a pet fee. No grass at the hotel, but some within walking distance in the neighborhood. Motel is very well kept up, clean, staff was friendly. One thing we weren't happy about was that all double rooms are on the second floor... More

We were on a roadtrip and needed a less expensive place to stay. This motel was a good experience! Everything was clean, the sleeping comfort was positive and the breakfast in the ,Rooster room' was great.

This is a very nice inexpensive motel. It was clean and had everything we needed for a one night stay. The breakfast was adequate and the owner was friendly and helpful. We will stay here again the next time we are in Pendleton.

We decided to hit Pendleton for the first time and were traveling with a small dog which always limits lodging options. The Rugged Country Lodge allowed us our pet for $10 more per night. They did not seem to have a "dog area" or any grass, so I walked him along the street. The rooms were clean with a western... More

Good place. Especially for the price. I traveled through the town and returned to this place because it looked reasonable. There are other places to stay but I would have expected to spend significantly more at most of them.

We were driving from Virginia on our way to Portland when our car broke down. Ended up having to sell the car, which is a bit of a sad story. But while we were in Pendleton the Rugged Country Lodge helped us forget our worries. The room is very cozy and clean. the comforter on the bed was like a... More

I've stayed here twice. Both times in dire need of a good night sleep. Both times the price was fair and consistent (in circumstances where most places would raise their rate). The place is clean. Everything is dated in style. But very clean. The carpet is new and clean. And it's obvious the place is family owned - and the... More

You get a bed, and you get a bagel, or generic cherrios, or a hard boiled egg, just like every other budget motel. Not a bad deal for the price, but not a b&b. Good WiFi, and nice, newer furniture. Clean room and a remote control for the A/C. Plus a $5 senior discount. There's a small metal ice bucket... More

This is an economy motel that's fairly convenient to the Wildhorse Casino. Breakfast, safety, and parking were good. Everything worked, except the sink didn't drain well. The beds are small double ones.
