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

I stayed here on a recent work trip to Eastern Oregon. This place was immaculately clean; the rooms, the surroundings, all of it. Being right on the river you couldn't ask for a better view! There is a small pool outdoor pool and hot tub which were also spotless. I stayed in a room with two queen beds and although... More

Very spacious rooms and bathrooms--everything you need. Very comfortable beds. Windows open for fresh air. Great views. QUIET! Pleasant and very competent staff. Nice restaurant--great waitstaff. Never would have thought of something like this in Boardman, OR! P.S. Very pleasant area for walks all around lodge--would be good for bicyclists, too.

Clean. Housekeeping is above average. Desk staff not overly friendly or conversive, night clerk seems to be the friendliest and most helpful. Large rooms. Pour the coffee just right or it's a mess. Typical TV selections. Trains can be noisy. Wall heat/ac unit typical noisy thing, can help cover up train noise. Everyone's saving on electric bill, room seems dark... More

You can't see it from the road, but we ended up needing a hotel in Boardman and found this very nice place on the river just outside of town. Nice room with mini fridge and microwave. The best part though was the access to a great walking trail that follows the river. It gave us a place to walk the... More

We needed a place to sleep while waiting to run among the poplar trees on a Saturday morning last month. The service was okay (high school student) and the room was clean. We asked for late checkout by phone in advance, and we were told to ask when we were checking out (we wanted to shower after we ran). We... More

Very relaxing place to stay. Great rooms. Clean and very comfortable. Wonderful relaxing views. Would have liked to have stayed longer to explore the area. Service was friendly. Would have liked to have more choices for breakfast but it was ok.

Boardman was the beginning of our trip along the Columbia River. The town itself does not have much to offer but the River Lodge and Grill is definitely the best thing in the area. Very clean and attractive, it is located directly on the river. We sat on the back patio and watched a barge go down the river. Very... More
