This is a good place to stay if you area visiting the Lake Wallowa area. My husband and I have stayed here several times. Comfortable rooms, very clean and good management. I'm sure we will return more times.

We were pleased to find a reasonably priced, well-appointed room at the last minute. It is a slow time of year in Enterprise. The bed was very comfortable, TV was good, and there was a nice hot shower which was greatly appreciated after camping out.

Log exterior . Logo is you will sleep like a log, and we did. Simple rooms, but has what you need. Small fridge, coffee maker. No blow dryer, though, so pack your own. Close to Wallowa and Joseph, reasonable price.

There is absolutely nothing objectionable about this hotel, it's clean, attractive, pretty quiet, central location, nice staffers, nice rooms, decent price for what you get. I was very pleased. Now I'm going to write a bunch of nonsense because Trip Advisor wants 200 characters here. Get a grip, who has time to read all the nonsense people can write?

Quiet, friendly and easy on the budget. It was perfect for our 2 family getaway. We could have our dog with us and be in a really comfortable room. Great beds, new looking showers, clean. Nothing to complain about. Really loved the location and would highly recommend.

Our family makes annual treks to Enterprise, OR, and the nearby points of interest. The Ponderosa becomes our base for these trips. The staff is nice, rates are good, accommodations and clean and comfortable. Central location for our activities throughout the Wallowa Valley and the Eagle Cap Wilderness area.

This was a comfortable stay. The beds were very comfortable, there are blackout drapes, a tall fridge, microwave, and it was clean! I would stay here again. Very busy place in summer with all the attractions going on in Joseph and the area so make reservations ahead of time.

Stayed for one night on trip round Hells Canyon Scenic Byway. Very comfortable and clean motel. Nothing much nearby but all we wanted was a comfy bed and we were lucky to get in as most places were full over rodeo weekend.

“Stay on the second floor, for nicer views and to avoid the sound of people walking over your head. This place is not as sound proof as it should be. But that was not an issue when I was there as the neighbors were mature and respectful.”
