“Quiet dog-friendly hotel next to forest with top-notch service”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

We stayed here on our return trip from the Oregon Coast to Idaho and were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. All service staff were well-trained, friendly, and professional. Tasteful and comfortable western decor with log furniture and personality. Our mom brought her small dog with her, and they had a doggie welcome basket waiting for her with biscuits, bags, and a sheet for her to sleep on. Large park-like property with manicured lawn, large pine trees, and a welcoming pool and large hot tub. Room was very clean, roomy, and quiet; bed was oh so comfortable.

Breakfast buffet was very good; served in rooms with friendly whimsical western/rodeo decor and outdoor seating for those who prefer to be outside. We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have high ceilings and are very quiet. Lower level are great if traveling with d...

Love your moniquer "dirtdivaboi"! Great! Thank you for your review, we are so glad your family all enjoyed themselves. Sisters is a perfect stopping point for those in Idaho to rest when travelling to and from the Oregon coast. It is fantastic that you found us and like us! The Best Western Ponderosa Lodge has 15 pet friendly rooms on the first floor. We have found more and more people are travelling with their four legged best friends and companions and have tried to provide a comfortable experience. A suggestion to all who read this "Remember to call to make sure there are pet friendly rooms available for the nights you need to stay at any hotel/motel you are travelling to." You can be disappointed if you assume there are pet rooms, especially with so many people travelling with pets. Paul Haggerty, General Manager

The rooms give a rustic feel with modern conveniences. I would not call it a lodge but a good motel. Friendly staff, clean facilities, nice grounds with woods, a pool, a hot tub and a fenced llama herd (which children love).

The one thing I would change is the suite bathroom set up. The open glass shower and sliding wood doors mean that anyone in the sleeping/sitting area can hear anything going on in bathroom.

The beds were very comfy! Fell asleep immediately!! Extremely clean, beautifully decorated. The hotel grounds are immaculate! Lots of wildlife to observe and even Llamas to visit. No elevator, so if you have problems with stairs, make sure you get a ground floor room!!

Arrived in Sisters Oregon after a very long ride on Harley's from California. We were actually recommended to the Best Western from another motel. We were looking for laundry service and the motel we stopped at didn't offer laundry. They referred us to the Best Western and are we ever glad they did! I've stayed in a lot of motels over the years but the Best Western in Sisters tops them all. Quite simply the Best of the Best! We were upgraded to a suite without asking. Seems that the Best Western loyalty card that I carry came up automatically when I registered. No extra charge ... No hassle. The suite was amazing and in itself not too expensive. Were I to win a lottery I would build a bedroom suite exactly the way the Best Western supplied theirs. The shower, Jacuzzi and bathroom were to die for. Amazing! The Llama enclosure was a fascination and I know that were I to have had kids with me it would have been a high point of their trip. As it was they offered a wonderful warm sunny pool. Across the road was a great grocery store which provided a cheap and tasty meal of fried chicken and salad. The desk staff were over the top .... Love you Gloria! and the complimentary breakfast was the best of the trip.

All in all a wonderful experience exemplary of the best of travelling in the USA.

If you are within 200 miles of Sisters, DO NOT MISS the chance to stay at the Best Western in Sisters Oregon.

Room Tip: There isn't a bad room in the place. Book and enjoy!

If you're looking for a place to stay that is comfortable, accommodating and treats you like a friend, the Ponderosa is the place to stay. Weather you need a comfortable bed or pool with views of Llama's ponderosa pines and a decor inside and out that makes you feel so special. Staff is amazing and you will not be disappointed. Try the suites with Jacuzzi.
