Great location and very spacious room. The staff was wonderful and you couldn't get a cleaner room. Our only negative comment is the bed was terrible. The staff said new beds are on order. I told them they need to post that when they arrive. We left one day early because we couldn't take the bed another night.

Were greeted warmly by the front desk at check-in. When asked about restaurants in town to eat at had good advice and copies of menus. Room was "spot-on" clean and nice. Great value for the price. If in the area again would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I love to travel in Central & Eastern Oregon. We live in Portland but our hearts are to the east. One of our favorite spots is the Wallowa valley in Northeastern Oregon. We go to bird, camp, and just drive around seeing the sights. We usually go in winter for birding, but spring, summer and fall, also good for birding, is mostly to enjoy the countryside. Favorite spots are the Zumwalt Prairie, Wallowa Mts., Hell's canyon overlooks, and Lake Wallowa. We stay at the Ponderosa Motel, especially in winter. It is clean, the folks friendly, and is well appointed with real coffee mugs and real glass drinking glasses. The heaters warm the room fast. We have not had to use the air conditioning, but since it is the same unit, expect it to also be efficient. In town we always have at least one evening at Terminal Gravity, one of our favorite brew-pubs in Oregon and because of its location in Wallowa Co, probably our favorite. Great brews and satisfying buffalo burgers. Best Friends in Joseph (6 miles away) is our favorite breakfast spot:Large proportions at a fair price. Can't wait till our next visit to Enterprise and the Ponderosa.

Room Tip: Upstairs is quieter. Ask for a place farthest from the highway.

Lets start off saying I am what you would say a hotel snob. Due to my employment I spend a lot of time at major brand hotels. I gotta say they are my first choice.
But when your out here there is not a lot of choices. I took a chance and stayed here. Ended up being a great choice. Very clean rooms-décor matches the outdoor look which was great look. The rooms have an updated look and flat panel TV's are always a plus.
I would stay here again given a chance especially because of the price!

Room Tip: Classic style Motel so there is no elevators.

By far, the Ponderosa Motel had the most comfortable bed of our recent travels. The room was comfortable and clean. The extra thick and soft cotton towels were an added bonus. The only major maintenance issue for our room was that the deadbolt didn't exist on the entry door (even though the knob was there - weird). I prefer a little more security than a basic door lock. For the price though, this was a really good stay.

Enterprise is a small town when going to Hell's Canyon and the Ponderosa is a good place to spend the night. Clean, quiet and comfortable at a very reasonable price. No breakfast but there's a great little diner just down the road. Just ask.

We stayed for three days and would have loved to stay longer. This is a wonderful area for shopping, dining, and hiking. Our room was a good size and it included two comfortable chairs by a large table, which would be perfect should you wish to dine in your room. The washroom was a nice size and our queen bed was very comfortable. The Inn is quiet at night and very close to coffee shops and dining spots. Best of all it is only a short drive to visit Joseph, but you can return easily to the relatively peaceful Enterprise.
Definitely a spot to consider if Joseph is on your radar for a holiday.
