This place blurs the line between hotel & motel- there's an outer door for 3 or so rooms, then a small hall or stair inside that leads to your individual room door. It's off the highway, but in front of a relatively busy road nonetheless, about 2 miles from the downtown shopping & dining area, and less than a mile to the Pendleton Woolen Mills. The person in the office checked us in quickly, though it wasn't a cheery welcome by any means. Our 2x queen room was smaller than average, but very nice; Everything was clean, neat, relatively new. The wireless Internet was probably the fastest of the 6 places we stayed at along our trip. The continental breakfast was adequate, but by no means deluxe: No fruit, no pastry, just coffee, bagged bagels, cereal, hard boiled eggs, canned juice, etc. The neighborhood isn't exactly scenic, but it was fine, especially considering that you're in a cow town in the middle of the desert. My wife is squeamish about independent motels, but she was quite happy with this one. If we travel to Pendleton again we would happily stay here a second time.
