5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is probably the cleanest motel/hotel I have ever stayed in. I travel from Alaska down to Oregon often and I was really impressed with this place. The beds were more than great. The breakfast was tasty and filling. Love the biscuits and gravy. People were great, friendly and very helpful. The stairs were easily climbed by my 82 yr... More

I travel to Goldendale frequently for business trips and this was my first time staying at the Ponderosa Motel. It was nice and had all the basic amenities that you would expect; cable TV, microwave, etc. The location is awesome if you are working near the area, it is close to the highway and to a few restaurants. It was... More

9/17/2016 - We had a large room with double bed and two full-size bunk beds on the bottom with twin top beds. The size of the room was the best part...fairly large overall. However, it was disappointing that the deadbolt did not work and the bottom beds were extremely squeaky. The room was clean and they offered a very nice... More

Was only in the room long enough to lay my head down. Overall, it was an above average motel room. Comfy bed, clean linens, hot water, quiet neighbors. The room had a TV with cable and a mini-fridge which was convenient but didn't get used during my stay. I was not there long enough to try out the breakfast in... More

We stayed here because of the reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed! Our room was in the single story annex, in the back, near the breakfast room. Very quiet! Bed was comfy, and room very clean & modern. Breakfast was very good, not super fantastic, but certainly typical of what most motels offer these days. A good value overall!... More

Fair Price. Clean Room. Our room had a kitchenette and two double beds divided by a wall which was nice so we could watch tv and the kids could sleep. Not a destination hotel but perfect if you are visiting the Goldendale Observatory.

We booked this based on TripAdvisor reviews and it was a great choice. It is an older motel but everything is well maintained and clean. The staff are very nice people and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The beds were decent and the room reasonably large. The breakfast is surprisingly good. I would definitely stay...

Located right off highway 97 at Goldendale, this locally owned motel is very clean and well-maintained. It is under new management since my last stay a few years back. We had a double queen with a kitchenette for a great price. The rooms are practical, but not fancy. The pillow top beds were very comfortable, everything was clean, and there... More

The staff was friendly and nice, the room was large and clean, and the breakfast was fabulous. We had a kitchen room and the place was huge, with the 2 beds in separate areas. Included breakfast is always a bonus - save a little money, save time in the morning - but this was beyond expectations. I'll come back to... More

This was the second stop for me on a motorcycle trip. I debated between this place and the Quality Inn but went with this one to save some money, and I didn't need a pool. I was a little worried when I pulled in but it was great. A nice room in the single story building, comfy bed, microwave and... More
