“NICEST BEST WESTERN I'VE FOUND...ANYWHERE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

What a pleasant surprise to find a Best Western in the small town of Sisters, Oregon that exceeded my expectations for this chain. It was on a large piece of heavily wooded land, complete with fireplaces, jacuzzi tubs and kitchens. The rooms were large, clean and well appointed. I would love to stay there again and highly recommend it.

We were in Sisters for a short visit. I would highly recommend the Best Western. The GPS directions did not work to get to this hotel, but we called and got directions. I would highly recommend and will be staying here again.

ChristyKcoffee thank you for your review! Thank you for your recommendation to others. Sorry you had difficulty finding us on your GPS. Seems to be a problem for the various GPS's. We have tried to help get it corrected, yet to no avail. Finally Mapquest and Google Maps have it correct. Have a great week! We look forward to your next visit! Paul Haggerty, General Manager

Lodge was clean and well maintained. Fresh paint was evident. Grounds were well groomed and obviously well cared for during this fall season. Lodging décor was consistent with the organizational and architectural motif of the town of Sisters, OR, namely early western. Enjoyed a very pleasant overnight stay.

The Ponderosa is clean, very comfy, warm and very relaxing. Walking distance to Sisters, a delightful town, and with views of the mountains plus lamas in the hotel grounds, I'd fully recommend this place to stay. Staff are also lovely.

Thank you "openplatforms" for your review! We enjoy having visitors from other countries stay with us to experience all we have to offer here in Sisters. You are right about the short walk to the core of downtown; it is only 1/2 mile. Sisters is only 2 miles long. Glad you liked our Llamas. Paul Haggerty, General Manager

This Best Western is a fine place to stay, not 5 stars - a solid 4, though. Staff is helpful. Beds are firm. The breakfast is OK - no hot dishes like eggs or bacon which are common at many similar places. They allow smoking in various locations around the property, which detracts from the overall experience. Pets are allowed, and the dogs present while we stayed were all well behaved.

Greatly appreciate your review "steveEugene_Ore..."! Glad you enjoyed your stay overall too! Not sure if you saw our egg & sausage burrittos that are offered breakfast. We do have pet friendly rooms here at the Best Western Ponderosa Lodge, with responsible pet owners 99.99% of the time. More and more people are travelling with their pets. ALL of the rooms and suites here are non smoking, with a heavy fee for those who decide to smoke in them. Since there still is a significant population who continue to smoke, we created areas for them to smoke outside, away from the rooms. Fortunately Oregon law does not allow smoking within 10 feet of guest rooms. Paul Haggerty, General Manager

Our room was large, pleasant and comfortable. A special treat was getting to feed and pet the Alpaca and Llamas that were in a pasture on site. The hotel had food available to feed the animals. We really liked the western look with the log structure look and wooden decor. Close to downtown and within walking distance however we drove in due to amount of time available. There is a wonderful bakery in town and we also ate at Bronco Billy's for dinner and it was very good. The staff were pleasant and took time to talk to us and answer any questions. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

From the beautiful lawns and pine trees --and small herd of llamas -- to the comfortable, spacious rooms, Ponderosa Lodge is a real jewel set in the lovely little town of Sisters surrounded by snow-clad mountains and, in October, by deep green evergreens and golden aspen. A perfect setting for relaxation and enjoyment.

Carolyn C, sounds like you were here at the "peak" of fall colors! It was an amazing display of colors and indeed enjoyable to behold. Very relaxing and satisfying. This is a wonderful setting for every season; a great place to relax and regenerate and maybe reconnect. Thank you for your review! Paul Haggerty, General Manager
