I come into Pendleton often for business and always stay downtown at the Knights Inn. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Beds are new and most of the rooms have individual heating and cooling units. The owners are so nice, friendly and helpful! They do treat you like family and will always stop and talk.
Best part of staying at the Knights in is the proximity to Hamleys, The Rainbow Cafe, Prodigal Son's Brewery, Joes Fiesta and our favorite Pendleton restaurant, Cimiyottis. It is so nice to walk over after a long day for dinner and cocktails and not have to drive! All of these eateries are a block away - really an enjoyable stay.
