This is the sort of small town motel run by someone who lives on site and cares for it. It is clean, well lit, in a quiet area (at least at night) although during the day it is busy and there is a tire store nearby. This is not a view spot although the town itself is in wonderful country.... More

I represent a group from Bend, Oregon who traveled to Goldendale, Washington for the Maryhills Concours car show and hill climb. The owner and staff at the Ponderosa went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. In our group there were 21 adults and we had the best time. The Ponderosa is centrally located and offers... More

Had a late start to our 3 day Labor Day weekend and arrived at the Motel at 2 a.m. For such a small area we were surprised that the front desk was still open. Had a problem with the key card not working but the front desk was able to quickly fix the issue.

We stayed here while attending a concert at the winery. The rooms were clean and plenty of towels (which is usually not the case at most). The bed was a bit on the saggy side but for one night it was no big deal. The free continental breakfast was pretty weak, a few more choices would have been nice. The... More

When I went into the office I was a bit concerned...it's very basic. However, despite being late at night and having had several of the fire crews checking in, she found my reservation and processed it quickly. Gave me a hair dryer when I requested one. Building with the 300 numbered rooms is new and spotless. Basic but I would... More

We were travelling with our teenager, and wanted to stay in a family suite. The room was spotless. The kitchenette was well stocked, ready to use. We would definitely stay here again. There is a free breakfast that includes sausage gravy and biscuits!

We had a memorial/reunion in Goldendale and Mrs. Whitner was so very accommodating. About 17 of us stayed there. It is an older motel, but very clean and nice. We would stay there again. Some of the units had full kitchens, others had partial kitchen areas.

We had one of the new extended stay rooms. It was really a suite and in excellent, clean condition. The kitchen area had enough equipment for preparing and consuming a good meal. Just across the road from the motel is a well-stocked supermarket called "Red Apple". We had a great night's sleep at The Ponderosa - clean and comfortable. The... More
