I had difficulty with my trip plans and Jason was so amendable, friendly and down right funny with helping me with my reservations. The free breakfast had lots to pick from, which included biscuits and gravy, eggs, sausage to cereal with lots of fruit, pastries, juices and coffee. It is an older motel, but the room was clean, smelled great and roomy. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the "dog area". It is in dire shape and needs to be cleaned up of messes that were abundant.

Hotel's Favourite
What a great find! Super clean hotel and quite location. Stayed here one night and it was a great surprise! Impressed on the cleanliness, friendly family style service (vs the pretentious of expensive hotels) and the amenities! Room had two bed in different divided areas. Full kitchen, great bathroom and super continental breakfast (coffee, sack breakfast with yogurt, pastry and sausage egg muffin). I would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat! Close to all the touristy stuff and grocery store. Excellent stay!,

The Ponderosa is an older, very clean, and well-maintained motel, handy to town, the observatory, and the highway. No frills, but all of the essentials. Check-in was fast and friendly, COVID protocols were in place, and the A/C held up against 100ºF temperatures and severe air conditions from wildfire smoke.

The check-in clerk was so friendly. The room was large and comfortable. It was not modern, A small inn for travelers. But it was much better than most motels. The morning breakfast was superb. Coffee, waffles, eggs, sausage, potatoes, biscuits and gravy, plus more. Everything was homemade. Very homey atmosphere.

I mean, yes, it is Goldendale so my expectations weren't ridiculously high, but the hotel has some work to do. We were there for one night to visit the Maryhill Museum, a local winery, and then the Goldendale Observatory and had booked two rooms. Because the hotel was fully booked, the rooms were not inexpensive. One of our two rooms had a lingering cigarette smell (although we'd booked nonsmoking) and the AC in both rooms emitted a moldy smell . . . flies, a bathroom door that wouldn't close, sticky TV remotes, and a broken hot water tap in the coffee area so no tea (although they did have teabags!). Just didn't feel very clean overall. On the positive side, the woman at check-in was super upbeat and the staff friendly.
