“Best place to stay in Enterprise”
Reviewed 28 September 2013 via mobile

Decided to stay here after trying the other motel in town twice. This is much nicer and very clean for the same price. The rooms have been redone recently and have a coffee maker, fridge and microwave. And real coffee mugs :) Sink and vanity are separate from tub and toilet. My only complaint is no hair dryer so bring your own! Overall, this is a nice, clean motel and a great value for your money. You wont be disappointed. Be sure to ask for smoking or non if you have a preference.

Enterprise is ideally situated to visit lots of wonderful places of interest in the area. I just stayed there for one night. The room was clean, wifi was working fine (password: SLEEPLIKEALOG). And that is what I did... I would not like to stay here for longer than a day. It is right on the road side. Because most people stay there for one night, you have to be prepared to hear a lot of 'noise' in the morning of cars and motorbikes leaving to their next destination

Room Tip: All rooms are facing the same way. Ground floor is more practical. A good hotel for passers-by.

A well priced, clean comfortable motel that is easy to find and has plenty of parking. The room was clean and spacious. We had looked for a room at Joseph, but there was only one overpriced motel that we could find.We made a good choice returning to the Ponderosa and I would recommend it to travellers in this area.

Although the air-con unit didn't seem to respond to my requests, the place was clean and comfortable, reasonably priced, and spacious. A typical motel, with rooms in better upkeep than many. Nice desk staff, although the check-in area needs a bit of cleaning and refurbishment. Great water pressure in the showers.

We spent two nights here while in Joseph, OR for Chief Joseph Days. The room was comfortable and the staff friendly. Our room was newly carpeted. Someone turned on the air conditioning before we arrived, so it was comfortable. There is no pool or continental breakfast.

It is a low tech facility, as is the entire town. Wifi is available in only a couple of coffee shops in Enterprise. Internet service is dial-up at other locations. Therefore, the owners mail confirmations rather than emailing.

It is an older place, but has a lot of great charm. The entire staff was so helpful and friendly. We arrived early and they, had our room ready. They even turned on the AC so it would be cool for us. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The price of the room was a great value. It is easy to walk any place from the Motel, and there are some fun things to see while you are there. Joseph, OR is only 6 miles away and it is a MUST see. There are all kinds of great shops in Joseph worth seeing. We were traveling with a group of people from our Car Club and they had stayed there before. I would recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Easy to walk any place in town.

We spent 4 nights here while we did daily cycling trips in the area. The motel is average. It is clean but the rooms are very dated, the carpet in need of replacement and the air conditioner was erratic. The room was fairly inexpensive so we can't complain. I wish the Best Western on the hill just outside of town was still open. Apparently it was involved in a foreclosure and now it sits empty. Also wish this place had a pool.

Avoid room 121 right by the office. It is noisy.
