The Wildhorse Resort and Casino in Pendleton, Oregon is the perfect spot to head to when on a road trip through Eastern Oregon or when traveling back and forth between Washington and Idaho. You can find a lot of things at Wildhorse, including golf, live entertainment, dining options, and of course gambling. You can also find it to be a very nice and conveniently located place to spend the night.
Rising up out of the desert like landscape that surrounds the Wildhorse Casino is the resort’s 10 story tall Tower Hotel. I specifically requested a room near the top because I wanted to check out the view and I was not disappointed. I didn’t have the time on this trip to make use of one of the available golf packages that could be combined with the hotel stay, but I’ll be remembering that for my next trip through the area. I did make use of both the sauna and hot tub though and that was the perfect way to end the day.
The entertainment options being conveniently located right on the grounds with the hotel make the Wildhorse Resort and Casino much more than just a place to spend the night. I got pretty lucky that night on video poker but didn’t really leave with much winnings. That was alright because I’d budgeted a small amount for gambling there and gotten well over a few hours of entertainment back for my investment.
The next day I was moving on to Idaho. The Wildhorse Resort and Casino was in the rearview mirror but will always be on the radar if I take another road trip along that stretch of highway.
