Like most places in Sisters, Best Western Ponderosa Lodge has wooded surroundings, along US 20 on the west edge of town, near the junction with OR 242, the scenic McKenzie Highway, which 15 miles west reaches the lava fields around McKenzie Pass. Rooms are large, nicely decorated, and quiet, since the building is set back a little way from the main road; all contain a microwave & refrigerator, and have good views from their private balcony or patio. A short walk south reaches a supermarket and several restaurants, while the town center is just half a mile away. Free continental breakfast, an outdoor pool/hot tub, business center and meeting space are the other main amenities. The Three Sisters are visible through gaps in the trees, just one of many scenic attractions in the Deschutes National Forest.
