The Rugged Country Lodge was one of the first places we've stayed in where TripAdvisor steered us wrong. Neither my wife nor I can understand how this place gets 5-star reviews. The only pro of our entire stay was that our room was clean. I'll keep the cons short and sweet...
STAFF: We were met by a chain-smoking woman in her pajamas who barely acknowledged our presence in the evening. She seemed much the same in the morning when she unlocked the breakfast room for us (same pajamas, lit cigarette, and all). I don't think she greeted us, smiled, or attempted small talk once.
BREAKFAST: Frozen gas station burritos or packaged oatmeal and bottled water. My wife was afraid to drink the coffee.
SURROUNDING AREA: In the morning we noticed ours was the only car in the parking lot. The area around the motel is not the greatest, most of the buildings are run down and far from downtown Pendleton.
We would not stay here again.More
