“Great Best Western”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We really liked this Best Western. The grounds are clean and we enjoyed watching the chipmunks and the birds coming to the bird feeder, we saw deer a couple of times. They have llamas that you can feed. Nice outdoor pool and hot tub. We liked that there was a complete bathroom and then a sink/mirror outside of the bathroom. We also liked the little dressing alcove as we have teenage daughters. The room was spacious and the balcony is a bonus--you can sit out there, hang your suits outside and leave the sliding glass door open instead of using the a/c all night. If you want easy access to the pool, llamas and breakfast--I would recommend you stay on the bottom floor near the south end of the building. All the rooms face the grounds rather than a parking lot which is nice! Also, did not really hear any road noise at night.

Room Tip: Second balcony is nice because you can leave the door open at night instead of listening to a/c. I...

Great review PickyinSeattle! Thank you for your time to provide valuable information to others. Our 2nd floor lodgepole rooms do provide secluded balconies and the opportunity to leave your slidding door open rather than use the air conditioner. Hope to see you and your family back again!

Great Hotel in Beautiful part of the country. Clean, comfortable and pet friendly. Nice pool and the grounds were spacious and well kept up. Got to feed their pet Llamas. Kids loved that! If you are in the Sisters Oregon area I highly recommend this Hotel.

I would highly recommend staying in this Best Western. It is located in a great location for touring around this beautiful part of the country. The room was very clean with nice décor. They also provide many choices for breakfast. Staff were very helpful and friendly.

Great place to stay. Nice grounds. Large, comfortable rooms. Balconies open to large open area, with pool and hot tub in the middle. Llama pen is pretty cool. Typical breakfast, but breakfast burritos are pretty good. Very good service.

This is great, one of the best (if not the best) we stayed in! Huge... very, very clean and nice rooms, a friendly and professional staff and the location is excellent (Big lawn with Ponderosa trees, well equipped pool and wildlife visiting the property). The breakfast ...waffles, no sausages or eggs..., but who cares...there is enough to eat and to choose from.
So, well done Ponderosa Lodge!!!

I stayed at this hotel on 2 different occasions. The hotel has well taken care of grounds and is located in a beautiful area. They take good care of their Llamas on the property, and you can see wildlife as well. The staff is friendly and you can tell they take customer service seriously. The rooms are clean, bed is comfortable, and the rooms have high vaulted ceilings. The rooms are beautiful, location is great, and service excellent. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Rather than shop Sisters in one day, we decided to make it an overnight trip. We were hoping to experience on a different level. Due to our stay at this exceptional Best Western, we plan to make this a trip we make numerous times a year.

With a lobby full of customers waiting to be checked in, we were quickly & efficiently taken care of. Since we booked VERY last minute, we opted for a room with 2 queens rather than a king size suite. WOW! The room was spacious (oh how we wish we could have had a hotel room this size when we were traveling with our two daughters!).

The mini-fridge was perfect to cool our beverages. (There were also a microwave & coffee maker we did not use.) The room was well decorated and included a balcony with two chairs. My husband was thrilled with the LARGE, comfy western style chair and the number of cable stations available.

Even though this hotel sits back from a very busy highway, the setting is so peaceful you do not notice the traffic or road noise. Beautiful green grass, swimming pool/hot tub, llamas, wildlife, and "community" style deck located on the upper floor that gives you a chance to be outdoors enjoying the smells & soft breezes all add to your experience.

They have set up a adorable eating area for breakfast complete with numerous selections: cereal, granola, hard boiled eggs, toast, freshly made waffles (you simply pour the batter in to the waffle maker), yogurt, fresh fruit, muffins, juices, coffee, etc. PLENTY of combinations that no one should walk away hungry.

Everything about our stay was perfect.....we will be back!
