10 individuals came together and stayed at this wonderful lodge. The atmosphere is incredible, you feel so welcomed. They have complimentary breakfast at the rooster room which has the cutest decorations. Only thing I would change is to have more than one toaster for the bagels. I would definitely stay there again. The price was great, and yet still safe...

We've stayed at this little motel several times over the years and always found it clean, well-located and inexpensive. The continental breakfast is more than adequate and it's only 2 blocks from the Pendleton Woolen Mills Store. It's not fancy but is very comfortable.

Our car pulling a trailer failed us on the haul up a steep grade east of Pendleton. We were towed to Pendleton to an auto shop late in the evening. The tow driver then took us to Rugged Country Lodge only 1/4 mile from the shop. The hosts were very accommodating, the room was clean and well supplied and had...

Clean, updated rooms in an old-fashion, 60's motel. Close to train tracks so great for those who enjoy train noise. Only single rooms on ground floor. Comfortable beds. Good televisions with cable. Nice bathrooms. A moderately priced motel for grown-ups.

Excellent experience. For a very reasonable rate, you get a homey, comfortable room with free wifi and a free breakfast. The owner was out front gardening when we pulled up. He greeted us and met us inside the small lobby. He was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommend!

Very clean and cared for rooms. Slept peacefully and comfortably. Get the feeling the owner is making effort to continue upgrades. Still need tv remote upgrade. The breakfast has limited options, but excellent. Good fresh coffee, hard boiled eggs, big fresh bagels and cream cheese and very nice fruit: apples, bananas, oranges. The room was VERY pleasant and friendly. Management...

I stay at the Rugged Country every time I'm in Pendleton. It's a quaint trio of squat house-like buildings from the '50s connected by a covered walkways and a lot of care by the family running it. It's about a mile east of Pendelton's fun downtown -- with its cowboy bars, western wear shops and steakhouses. Across the street is...

Wonderful stay! Management met us in the parking lot to help us find a way to park our truck camper. Any other day I don't think there would have been enough room. The room itself was cute, cozy and I found the whole place simply charming. We came for our 15th Superbowl Anniversary and had a great time!

This place is very cozy, clean, and a great value. The motel was immaculate and well-maintained. The man at reception was very courteous and helpful. My stay was in January, so it was quite cold, but the room had a great heater. Continental breakfast even included hard-boiled eggs.

We arrived at about 9:15, and we're greeted with a cold room, and only a thin sheet and fleece blanket on the bed. Once I turned on the heater and cranked it to high, the room warmed up soon enough, but the lack of a blanket on the bed meant that my girlfriend didn't sleep well. They claim to be...
