The hotel looks very comely and the restaurant area have very nice views of the Columbus river. However rooms look a bit old, specially the bed, with uncomfortable mattress and pillows. The breakfast menu is delicious but at dinner time is not recommendable, as the quality of meat and fish is not very good (frozen).

We contacted this hotel and I spoke to Beth. She was very kind and helpful in getting us the best rate. We were heading to Twin Falls ID. and just needed some place to rest about half way from home. The room was very clean and the hotel was inviting. It is in an Industrial area but that did not... More

Driving back from Glacier to Portland, we were getting tired and looking for a place to stay. This place looked interesting in the AAA book so we tried it. Great find. Lovely hotel, on the Columbia River, with a quality restaurant. Nice walking trail along he river, and nice grounds to just sit outside. We did have a riverside room,... More

What a treat, resort quality for about a Franklin (off season)!! The staff, property and location right on the river is a real treat. We'd stopped down the road but chose to keep driving for just a few more minutes and were rewarded by a memorable experience. Get a riverside room, a glass of wine at sunset and be with... More

This is a hidden jewel. The restaurant has a very limited menu but the food is good and reasonable. Especially good place to stay or just eat in the summer. Very poor marketing or this place would always be packed.

Approaching Boardman from the west, you pass the large industrial area of Port Morrow and begin to wonder...but this hotel is set in a very quiet spot just a little further on and right on the banks of the Columbia River. The building is modern and smart and our Riverview room looked out on the river just a few yards... More

We have stayed here many times. The river location is gorgeous. The hotel is spotless and very attractive. Service has always been good and very friendly. This trip the checkin staff was fairly efficient but not friendly at all. The other employees were great. The views from the second floor on the river are like being on a boat. The... More

As with all things, this hotel has changed. Still very clean. Beds are very uncomfortable (my shoulders and hips were sore for 2 days after we left). We forgot to ask for an upstairs room, so we had to call the front desk at 3am to ask the parents upstairs to stop their kids from running around. The noise did... More
