I stayed here with my brother when we arrived (from AK & MT, respectively) for my son's wedding in mid-August, 2015. We had originally been booked at a different hotel (Howard Johnsons) but after 2 horrid days there, we switched to this one. I was never so happy in my life. (and it was only 1.5 miles from my son's...

The property is clean, and they offer a all too brief, minimal breakfast, but you can pay to have outstanding food at Heidi's next door. It features a wonderful courtyard, with a pool and hot tub. The pool is so cold that no one can comfortably enjoy it, and the hot tub wasn't working! The manager was not at all...

We checked in pretty late, after 9 P.M. . We were exhusted and in a lot of pain. In fact we were in town to get hospital tests done for two days. The first thing we noticed upon getting into our room was that the main entrance room light was burned out. We honestly were so tired we pretty much...

Although we've never stayed in another Clarion Inn (touted to be an upper mid-priced chain), we found this hotel to be a notch below others in the Choice Hotels family. To be fair, perhaps it has only recently changed ownership because the lobby rugs say "Clarion," but everything else sports the "Pony Rider" logo. The rate was about $150 less...

We stayed here three nights in early July and found the room clean, comfortable, and quiet (even though it boarded a busy street). The pool area is really nice and clean. We used the laundry which is easily accessible and reasonably priced. Breakfast is average and a restaurant (Heidi's) is across the parking lot. The staff is helpful and pleasant.

On 6/23/2015 I booked a room online. When I got the email confirmation, it said the room was booked for 6/23 instead of 6/28 as I had intended. Since it was already after 9:00 pm on 6/23 it would not let me cancel or change the reservation online. I contacted the property directly at 9:19 pm 6/23. The desk said...

I am on an extended road trip and due to not knowing how far I would drive did not make reservations (I know not smart on a beautiful summer weekend). After starting to try and find a room at The Dalles up to Gresham I found the Pony Soldier Inn which used to be a Best Western and is now...

Our son and his family live just a couple of blocks away from this hotel. We've stayed there during the holidays for the past 4 years. The location is tops. The hotel is clean, has a special ambiance, the staff is very congenial and the breakfast is wonderful. The only problem is there is no elevator.
