"Challenging Times"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Made reservation through Best Western, Not the Ponderosa directly and the messed up the reservation for a pet friendly room. COVID made the experience less than what we had experienced in the past but still good.

"The Best getaway in Sisters Oregon Best Western Ponderosa Lodge."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
From the beginning it was the best' the staff that checked us in was so polite, helpful and very kind Then when we had our breakfast that was included with our stay the women that was helping in the breakfast room actually made our plates from eggs sausage and waffles and real orange juice and grate conversation'' very friendly, When we checked out we inquired about a different room to possibly stay in on our Anniversary in a few months they actually gave a room key to us and let us look at the room and then helped us book it with discount's for our special occasion coming up We can hardly wait to go again.

"Clean, friendly and affordable."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I stayed in this resort location while attending a wedding. The front desk person was helpful and friendly even though I got in after 9:00 pm. The room was clean and well appointed. The unit had a good heating/AC system. There is a reliable fridge, microwave and coffee set up as well. I did not have the breakfast but was just generally pleased with this property. It is affordable and (thank goodness) it was available when other places weren't. I was able to park right outside my door.
