We returned to the Pendleton Red Lion after 20+ years. Not much has changed - including the fabulous view over the rolling wheat fields to the Blue Mountains. (Definitely upgrade to the open country side - well worth the $15 if you plan to spend any time in the room or on the balcony.) The hotel feels tired but the... More

For several years, we have been staying at the Red Lion in Pendleton on our way through town. We have always enjoyed the beautiful view and the grassy areas, which are great for our dog. However, our stay last week will be our last one. The rooms are in desperate need of renovation. I wore socks the entire time because... More

Inexpensive hotel which has a restaurant and bar, so no need to leave the premises. Overall hotel is in need of a remodel. Seems quite outdated. We stayed for 2 nites; room service was just fair. Beautiful area of Oregon.

The hotel is pretty average and fairly nice. It's a bit outdated and smells a bit old. Breakfast is at a charge and no room service. For the area it is a decent hotel. There are multiple options in Pendleton. The staff was friendly but the check-in process seemed to take forever!

We had stayed here before, over ten years ago, and made it a point to try it again on our way home from Yellowstone. But, I must say, we got off to a rocky start...

What a nice surprise! A beautiful hotel, spacious and clean. Very nice front desk folks. Easy access From the interstate. Poor Rachel our waitress, though. She was pretty overworked but handled herself with a kind and positive attitude. Observing the wait staff, actually, they need better training. All very nice people though. Food and bar area both very good. Food... More

When you first walk into the lobby you are pleasantly surprised at the beautiful marble and decor. You would think that you are in a big city hotel.

My husband wanted an outdoor pool, so we eschewed the newer chain hotels. I was pleasantly surprised by this property. It is older and a bit dated, but clean and comfortable. The pool was large, clean, and not overly chlorinated. Our room was standard but, again, clean and comfortable. Coffee maker, fridge and microwave included. Great value in the bar,... More

Reserved room online and it was a good thing too. Very busy time of year! Most hotels booked solid. Had a great room, very quiet and well maintained. Enjoyed a tasty breakfast in the restaurant. The wait staff was very friendly.
