As always, we enjoyed a comfortable room at a great price. Free breakfast was an added bonus. The staff are always welcoming and helpful. We count on comfortable beds, fully stocked amenities in very clean bathrooms. They have updated , but kept the classic feel of 60s motels. It is a good place to stay and we appreciated the "dog...

We stayed on 9/11, 3 days from the,Pendleton Round Up. We prefer non-chain motels. The owners are very accommodating, the room immaculately clean and the bed was wonderful. We had street noise (cars on busy road) and a train, which we find soothing, but managed to sleep from 9:30 to 7:30! We were in room 6 at the end. The... More

While I don't usually stay in hotels that are more of the "travel lodge" style, this was a great choice. From the friendly greeting when I checked in to the warm goodbye, this hotel had a lot going for it at a reasonable price. The bed and pillows were very comfortable - always a plus - and the overall room... More

We had a 2 queen bed room on the second floor. Beds were very comfortable and very clean. Wi Fi was spotty, bathroom small could use more type of shelving. Slept with window open and it was quiet. A good place to rest you head and have a place to clean up

Stopped in Pendelton unexpectedly and booked this place because the reviews were good. I enjoyed my stay very much and would recommend it to anyone. The building itself has the vibe of a place built in the early 50's. You can see it in the cool tile bathroom. But it has been updated significantly. The furniture is not institutional at... More

Recommend for those seeking budget accommodations; somewhat austere, but acceptable. Overall clean, but a minor ant problem in bathroom. Good bed, good night's sleep. Breakfast room very clean and a nice continental breakfast.

We had a great stay here. The room was a little small but felt cozy rather than cramped. It was exceptionally clean and had homey touch like real pictures on the walls and a real Pendleton pillow on each bed. The bed and feather pillows were incredibly comfortable. I always bring my own "nest" but the beds and bedding are... More

A really fun place to stay in Pendleton. A very well cared for property with cool, unique, personalized touches. The hotel is cute , cozy & comfy. After an expedient check in , I was given the key to my room , it was an interior entry behind a locked door from the outside - nice safety feature. The room... More

Clean, quiet and close to downtown and the rodeo grounds. OK breakfast with easy access back on the freeway. Pendleton is nice town with a great restaurant just a few minutes from the motel. Take a stroll on the river walk.
