We were on a hiking trip and needed a place to stay that was pet friendly. The Ponderosa Motel is clean and very affordable. The entire staff was very friendly. Was surprised to find a full size fridge in the room along with stove. The price was great!!

We stayed here with our Boxer and a couple other guys for 10 days. The owner was a lovely lady that also did housekeeping and the prep for the continental breakfast. The place was very clean and quiet, considering a lot of construction workers stay here during the week. We will stay here again.

When I see the 1 and 2 star reviews for the Ponderosa Motel, I wonder if they stayed at the same place I did. Our room was clean and quiet. We asked for a quiet room, and we were asked if we had pets. When we said, "No," we were given a room in the annex, and there was only... More

I had to stay here on a 3 day drive to Templeton California. I had no idea that if you travel with a dog they put you in the old part. They had another part that was redone. Unfortunately it was for guests with no pets. I was killing flies all night long. Moldy can of dog food stunk up... More

There's only 2 motels in town and based on previous reviews on this site, I picked this one. I guess the operative word is "sparse". No art on the walls, just blank spaces, no clock (tried to set the microwave clock but the display was broken), no hairdryer (brought my own having been warned). Tiny bathroom. No wrapped hand soap... More

Sorry for the inconveniences. We do offer hair dryers, and extra blankets upon request. As an environmentally friendly motel we strive to conserve energy whenever possible. Our guest comfort is one of our top priorities and we would never expect our patrons to not use the heat while in the room. Thank you for your feed back. More

Enjoyed our short stay here. Room was large with kitchen, microwave and small fridge, bath tub/shower, TV, including breakfast, hot biscuits and gravy, hard boiled eggs, bagels, English muffins, cereal and oranges. Would definitely return.

PRO: The room seemed clean CON: It was so badly needing updating that it was hard to tell that it was really clean.

Our car broke down on the way to Oregon so we stayed the night at the Ponderosa. The lady running the place was very nice and let us get a late check out. The room was spotless and had flat screen tv and very comfortable beds. It was nice to be so comfortable while we were stranded.

The Ponderosa Motel in Goldendale is impeccably clean. The rooms are large. Ours had a separate sitting room and full kitchen. Quiet and comfortable. The owner and staff are gracious and welcoming. A great jumping off point for exploring the beautiful scenery...Mt. Adams, the Columbia River Gorge, and wineries. Very affordable and a great value. Complimentary breakfast was tasty.
