Room was very tidy and clean. We loved the quiet. We arrived after the office closed and we don't own a cell phone to call the number on the door so we just knocked and he came out and checked us in. Very nice. Decor was cute.

We stayed on street level and we heard no noise. There were no barking dogs...and I would have heard them. Cute decor and furnishings...bed was great, lighting in bathroom wad good. Could possibly use new carpeting. Management was very accommodating and friendly. The TV should be modernized with a flat screen. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.

Very nice, beds were comfy and the rooms were clean. Everyone was so nice and the food was amazing! The shower was awesome too except it was backwards! Although that doesn't really bother me and it happens at almost every hotel we stay at. The whole staff was so nice and I throughly enjoyed the stay 10/10 would stay again!!

Getting back to basics, this lodge provided us a clean, quiet and comfortable night's stay at a great price. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast provided in the morning was enough to get you up and going without having to spend a lot of money on food. We had 2 adjoining rooms; one with a queen bed and... More

Driving from Kansas to Marysville, WA we needed a good clean place to stay in Pendelton, OR. We read the reviews & saw the positive reviews. For the money, you can't beat The Rugged Country Inn. It was clean, easy to get to, & the bed was great! The continental B-fast was diverse & handy. Coffee, Juice, Cereal, Bagels &... More

We stayed in the last 7 years around 9 times there. Every 2 years, during our visits in Oregon, 2 times. It was always very good there and we liked it very much. End of September 2014 we stayed there again and were nearly shocked. At 8:30 we wanted make breakfast, but no coffee, no hot water and really no... More

Owners obviously are trying VERY hard, good service, comfy room, diverse and tasty breakfast. An older building, nicely maintained and furnished. Loveseat in my room, nice touch. Soft full linen. The ONLY thing that would stop me from staying again is the neighbor's barking dog. The Motel owners know of this, and I wish them the best in getting the... More

I loved this hotel since my first stay over 10 years ago when the couple who ran it gave out home baked cookies to the guest every evening at 5:30, the rooms were immaculately furnished and cleaned, as well as the parking lot, and gardens around it. It is NOT that hotel anymore. The floors are filthy, the walls are... More

A warm welcome led to a beautifully-decorated room, with simple but effective touches, from the Native-American-style blanket on the bed, to the Ppine chest for the TV. There were flowers in front and a really decent breakfast in the morning, the Pendleton Woolen factory a short walk away. All the amenities were present, great tiled bathroom, and even the traffic...

I stayed at the Rugged Country Lodge for three nights and was very pleased. It's a great base from which to explore the many charms of the Pendleton region, including the fascinating Pendleton Underground Tour and the nearby Native American-created and run Tamatslik Interpretive Center. The motel is very clean and the cozy rooms are nicely decorated and cheerful. I... More
