This hotel is run by a family committed to service and customer satisfaction. I was checked in by a polite, efficient child (on summer break, no doubt) who popped out from another room in the front office and had us settled in about 30 seconds flat. I had booked a "suite" which just means that it has a fold-out couch... More

This nice little hotel just out of downtown Pendleton was very good. Quaint room with Western furniture and motif. Quiet, within walking distance of downtown. I would stay here again for business or pleasure in this great Western town.

I booked a double room the day before our arrival. Our room was upstairs and had a nice layout and decor. The room was very clean but the air conditioner didn't really work well. It kinda moved the air around instead of cooling it. We enjoyed the free breakfast and used the coffee maker and refrigerator in the room. This... More

My wife and I called after 9 PM as we were driving into town, and the manager stayed open to give us a room. Cable and amenities were lovely, and the trains did not bother us much. Loved the decor and retro charm. Everything was clean and comfortable. The manager and his family were gracious and friendly. I personally had... More

Charming, cute rooms. Mnager was very humble and accomodative. Great price and excellent overall experience. Hotel is kept in good condition and we were told renovation is coming up. Strongly recommend this hotel.

While not not luxurious and not new, this hotel is evidently very well cared for by the management. We enjoyed it so much after our first southbound stop that we decided to stay here again on the return trip. If you are the type of person that delights in shaming a hotel's managers with pictures of carpet stains, you might... More

I would recommend that you don't stay here, the room was run down,the carpet was filthy not to mention stained with who knows what. The water pressure or shall I say lack of pressure,couldn't wash my hair:( The train tracks are a block away, so heard trains come thru all night not to mention the three barking dogs all night...

What a charming hotel. The manager lives on the property so he was available and very accommodating. We were leaving early and he opened the breakfast to us so we had something to eat before we left. He stayed to chat with us. Nice gentleman. The room was so clean even though the carpets looked stained. The manager excitedly told... More

We stopped at this clean little hotel with complementary breakfast and we're delighted with the cheerful cozy room. The owner who is on premises was very nice. We appreciated the comfy dining room too.
