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

The River Lodge and Grill really is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. We loved our stay there. The only complaint that we have is that the staff was pretty rude a couple of times. One example was when I called to ask for more towels I got the lady at the front desk. She gruffly told me... More

It was the end of a very long day, having driven from Glacier National Park that morning and this was the first place we could find a room. How fortunate we were! The room on the first floor facing the river was very nice. We had nothing blocking our view (we were near the end of the hall away from... More
