The Rugged Country Lodge was very clean, the beds comfortable, they accepted our 3 dogs, and the management was very pleasant, although the young man could have been more friendly. Would recommend! We will return.

This hotel is about 2 miles off 84 but it's worth it. The rooms are small and cozy. Toiletries included, clean room. Breakfast was bagels, cereal, juice and coffee and ready before 7. For the price, you can't beat it. We arrived after 11 and the owner had given us his number to call so he could greet us with... More

I needed a clean, but inexpensive room for an overnight stay in Pendleton. Rugged Country Lodge fit the bill. The room was one of the cleanest I've encountered, Despite the 1940's era bathroom and small room (approximately 12 x 14) management had installed a comfortable bed, Pendleton Woolen Mills throws and pillow, WIFI, and a mini refrigerator and microwave.

We were just in Pendleton for one night and had a bad experience at the Red Lion previously. All of the chain hotels were way over priced and we decided to stay here based on other reviews.

The outside isn't much to look at but my room was like a little boutique hotel. Nice furniture, linens and bed. Bath was a bit small but perfectly adequate. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was good and in a cheerful, lighted space.
