We were headed out on a Thursday night to get a head start to Oregon for a long weekend and stayed here and was surprised at the cleanliness and good night's sleep. We arrived about 10 pm and the owner checked us in very efficiently and polite. Two couples in side by side rooms. the wives are pretty picky and...

A very nice place to stay, clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. I loved the nice little kitchen, comfortable couch and really deep tub shower. The rooms are large, with a separate living room in the front and the bed is behind a wall, so you don't hear any road noise.

My family and I spent two nights here and had a wonderful stay. The people at the front desk were efficient and very helpful. Our room was spacious, clean, and the beds were very comfortable. For such a small motel, we were very impressed with the delicious variety of foods they had to offer for breakfast. If we ever travel...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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!...

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...
