Truly impressed with immaculate room. Decent breakfast included with eggs. Only downside is train tracks 100 yards away. Didn't bother us but a light sleeper might notice. Location is around the corner from Pendleton Mill.

My husband and I took a last minute over night get away for our anniversary. We were treated very well by the staff. Everything is very clean. The rooms appliances worked very well. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. This hotel is very reasonably priced. We would not hesitate to stay there again and to recommend it to friends.

We were pleasantly surprised at all the extra effort that had gone into the motel for the guests. We loved the decor and the bed was awesome. Our host wanted to make sure we were completly satisfied with our visit. Enjoyed the continental breakfast and meeting other guests in the motel the next morning!

We have stayed here 3 times. We like the rooms and the proprietors. The beds are very comfortable. The hotel has always been very clean. Only thing we would add is a little more variety for the breakfast.

We checked out the budget hotel options in Pendleton and this hotel was far superior to the rest. The rooms were immaculate and the beds comfortable. The inside of the hotel has the look of a B&B, and the owner is working hard to give the outside a facelift.

We stayed here based on reviews and weren't impressed. The room was cold and the bedding was insufficient. We used towels for added warmth. It was also noisy and the room was average or below. We travel this way often and won't be back.

We're "stick-to-the basics" travelers who spend very little time in our rooms and most our time exploring the area. So, this room was perfect! Couldn't beat the price. Our room was comfortable and clean, but kind of dingy. Great location near downtown. We walked to town for dinner each night. Right down the road from the original Pendleton Woolen Mills...

Went by Trip Advisor reviews and found this Lodge to be clean and run by a very accommodating family. Was disappointed that the non-smoking room smelled like...... stale smoke. Really had to keep the air conditioning going just to clear the smell out while we were there. Otherwise, the location is convenient and the continental breakfast was sufficient.

We checked in mid-week for a Spring Break vacation and found our host to be very friendly and helpful. The handy man who was doing some repairs in another room was kind enough to show us to ours and make sure we were settled comfortably, he even made sure we knew where to find the wi-fi password. The room itself...

Clean and charming. Vintage bathroom tile was cute. Would rather give my money to a local establishment than a chain. It's vintage so not everything is perfect and new. Free breakfast was basic, but for the price completely fine.
