So the owner is very friendly but I unfortunately cannot recommend this hotel. We have a larger vehicle and the parking is atrocious for anything but a small car. The rooms are small and their cleaning is less than adequate. There was a used wash cloth draped over the shower head and some kind of powder on the wall and...

This was formerly a HoJo's hotel back in the 70 - 80's and is quite dated. I would not stay here again because it is run down. Parking is convenient, breakfast is bare bones. Staff was very helpful and friendly but it's in a sketchy part of town.

This guest did not even stay with us. They wrote also on Booking.com but the review does not have a Reservation ID associated with it which means the review was not an actual guest. This hotel was not a HOJO's in the 70's and 80's it was the Tapadera Hotel and Restaurant. Owned by the Drumheller family which was well...

When we arrived to the hotel, I was a little sketchy from the outside view because it's a small area on the right side of the road with few parking spaces and unusual colors on the outside. I was a little concerned about that due to our unpleasant stay at EconoLodge in Salt Lake City. But the reviews said otherwise,...

First off, there's no place to park when you check in. That pretty much sets the scene for the whole experience. Basically you get a room in the middle of a little town in north eastern Oregon. There are about 10 rooms that are near your car. The rest are either upstairs or facing the city street. I assume that...

Thank you John for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you had a comfortable sleep in our new beds because ultimately this is the reason that you stay at a hotel, is for a good rest. I remember you were very unhappy that you couldn't have bacon, and sausage at our hotel. I am sorry but...

The hotel was great. Very centrally located in downtown Pendleton near restaurants and bars. Husband and myself went for an overnight trip to celebrate our first anniversary. The king suite was perfect. Large jetted tub fit both of us and was very relaxing. Didn't hear anyone above us since we were on the first floor. Only time we heard people...

The owner has gone above and beyond in what he has done to make sure that EVERY guest is comfortable. The room was clean, the bed was soft (and new) and I felt completely taken care of! The only thing I would suggest, is that they improve the continental breakfast, as it was lacking a bit. Even so, I'm giving...
