Rugged Country Lodge was clean but the rooms were very small. It's right on a popular road and near the train. I woke up a few times because the train was so loud but that might be true in all of Pendleton, since it runs through town. It has a free breakfast but it was very basic. The room was...

At twice the price, this cute and tidy place would have felt like a good value. Very comfortable, well kept, and clean, I felt The Rugged Country in was a bargain. Would definetly stay here again if I find myself in Pendleton.

The room was very clean and well decorated. Down bedding made for a wonderful sleep! I had trouble connecting to Wifi and the man at the office came right yo my room and fixed it in a snap! I couldn't believe the quality of the room for such a reasonable price Will stay here again for sure!!!

If you like to support small hotels this is a great place to stay. Great price, friendly staff, nicely remodeled room, and it even included a light continental breakfast. Since it was extremely cold outside (single digit temps), we should have accepted the offer of a portable heater.

I recently had my third stay at RCL immediately following Christmas. RCL is my reward for a long days journey from Utah to Oregon. It is worth braving wintry weather and fatigue over the Blue mountains knowing that comfort and rest awaits in Pendleton. The owner and staff are friendly every time and the room is comfy with the price...

It was a very snowy night arrival. We've never stayed here before and thought we'd just give it a try. What a great idea! The manager was very courteous and accommodating to tired, stressed travelers and our dogs. We requested a room where we could park in front of it, to unload: perfect! The manager cautioned that the door locks...

We stayed in this hotel a few nights ago. It was affordable and most importantly clean. It felt very homey. I liked that it wasn't far from the highway. The owner was very nice and made sure we felt welcome.

This is my second time staying at the Rugged Country Lodge. I return because it is a family run business. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. They keep the motel clean and cozy. The breakfast is excellent too.
