This is a motel for the Working Man. No nonsense, thrifty stay. About fifty bucks a night. Working all day, then Sauna is Ideal. Breakfast is like "pony soldier" chow. Creamed Chipped Beef on toast! SOS.

We stayed at the Best Western Pony Soldier-Gresham when we went to visit my brother. We chose that particular Best Western because it is close to where he lives. Let me tell you why we will not stay there again. To begin, there is no elevator, meaning you have to carry your luggage up the stairs. Luckily, we were able...

This is the location out in GRESHAM, OR. Yeah to my surprise I called (before 230pm) to cancel my reservation and was told that I would be charged the entire amount of the room because there is a '24 hour notice reservation cancellation' by the hotel clerk. So I then went online to my reservation only to find out that...

The hotel needs a little updating, but is very clean and quiet. The staff were outstanding. It's nice to see people that take pride in their jobs and care about their customers. We will definitely stay again when we stay in the north Portland area.

I have stayed here many times over the last 12 years or so and have always enjoyed my stay. Rooms are very comfortable and clean and the lobby and dining room are well kept, stocked and comfortable. I also like the fact that the hotel is a short walk (half mile?) to the MAX light rail station. Makes for a...

I read many reviews about the Pony Soldier and when booking the hotel via the Best Western website, did not realize that there were two Best Westerns with the same name in the Portland area. It wasn't until we landed at the airport and requested a shuttle that we discovered we had booked at the wrong Best Western. That was...

My first impression of Gresham, Oregon was a very positive one. I enjoyed my vacation at a very nice hotel. The Pony Soldier is located in a nice area close to many restaurants and shopping centers. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who plans to travel to Oregon.

Near enough to Portland, the rooms and entrance are like new still and the desk clerks that we knew were very helpful. This location and the previous Best Westerns that I rate highly are the ones in Oia Santorini Greece, Covington Louisiana and the one in Kingston Ontario, the Fireside Inn are my favourites, All pleasant and very quaint..
