Location was good, parking sucked. We stayed in the "honeymoon" suite and it was filthy. The hot tub was great but we didnt even shower because there was still hair from previous guests in the shower, there was an empty shampoo bottle behind the bathroom door. Dead give away that the room wasnt even cleaned. The bed was horribly hard...

HJ in Pendleton is a hotel that is comfortable and clean. While not fancy it is just right if you're there for 1 night or several. We've stayed here twice and haven't had any issues. It is older but right downtown and across the street from two really great steakhouses. We go to Pendleton to visit family and will stay...

Wanted to be close to Wild horse Casino without breaking the bank!! The owners were very warm and willing to do anything to make stay comfortable. Rooms have been remodeled and the beds were the best!! Very quiet which I didn't expect on New Years Eve. They have a very nice dining area for breakfast which has also been remodeled....

Pulled into town needing a room and ended up in king size bed down town! Room was neat, clean and well furnished with a 40" television. Management was exceedingly kind and the check out service provided by Ms. Kayla Gatschet was top notch!

Great rate for clean room and very comfortable bed. It was nice to park outside room door for convenience. Older hotel with updated rooms. Shower ceiling had some issues but it is an older hotel that is being kept up well. We had a good nights sleep and I would return when passing through Pendleton.

Sorry to hear that your stay did not go as well as you would have liked. We had a terrible snow and ice for the last two weeks. Some of our housekeepers were stuck and could not make it in.
