This place was great for the price! Very clean. Even the sidewalks outside were kept neat. Breakfast was good and hot. Well maintained for an older motel. Everything worked in our room including ac. Bed was soft. We were pleasantly surprised for what we got with the price! Go to the Glass Onion while in this little town it was... More

This motel was very clean and the bed was great. Breakfast was very tasty and is cooked on site. I definitely would stay again. We stayed 2 nights. We were there for a class reunion. We were raised in this town so is good to know there is a great and affordable motel.

Really good for a motel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and in good shape-everything seemed pretty new. The bed was too soft for our taste though. Wifi was solid. Best of all was the breakfast! Ham, sausage, homemade gravy!!!, biscuits, scrambled eggs, and tasty hash browns. The cook kept it constantly refilled, so no worries... More

Pleasant surprise in this out of the way place. Was given a free upgrade because I told the manager it was difficult to bring my luggage to the assigned room. Once settled, the place was spotless. The breakfast was very run of the mill, but every employee was helpful and cheerful. The bed was to die for...quite comfortable. Clean, quiet... More

The room was in very good repair and impeccably clean. The negative aspect were the neighboring guests, men who hung out on the walkway outside our room, leaning on the railing for hours, smoking and talking loudly. The rooms are strictly non-smoking, but the management has placed ashtrays just outside the rooms on the walkway. This, naturally, encourages smokers to... More

Goldendale is kind of the middle of nowhere in the desert, and the Ponderosa Motel is a small friendly comfortable place to spend the night. It is spotlessly clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Beware that Goldendale is a very small and isolated town and dining options are limited. The motel provides breakfast, and there is a good country... More

We read the reviews, and almost everyone of them said "Clean". We called and booked a room for two adults and a small dog. We were quoted a price for a "Dog Friendly Room" but when we got there, there is an extra fee for the dog on top of the Dog Friendly Room Fee. It did not feel right,... More

Their was only one room available so I checked it out, at first it presented well. The good- it was large, clean with a updated TV that had direct tv with moderate amount... More

The furniture is dated and the building is older but the rooms were super, amzingly clean and the staff went above and beyond. Breakfast was amazing going way beyond "continental". We would totally stay here again if in the area.

The staff are great! Very nice people , clean rooms, and a very plentiful kitchen stalked with food. The front desk is small but the people are most gracious. They offer immediate help and hospitality. I highly recommend them. I stayed in room 311 and had a great stay! Very good motel! Extremely nice to children of all ages! (... More
