We did not have reservations but luckily they had a cancellation. Desk personnel very friendly and helpful. Room was tastefully decorated and clean. We generally prefer BW as most of their properties accept pets and are clean and nicely decorated 90% of the time.

One of the nicest places we have stayed in all of our travels. Slept great, clean, comfortable, quiet, would definitely stay here again when in the area. Had a room with a balcony and enjoyed the evening looking out over the Columbia Gorge and watching the sunset.

Was not advised of the constant flow of trains all night long. Room was noisy and heard all hallway activity, ice machine activity and the loud people in room next door including them pounding on their door at 1 am. This happened within feet of the front desk yet they did nothing to stop it.

We were there for a national car meet in Stevenson,WA. The staff was very helpful and the room was neat and clean. The deck overlooking the river was a very nice place to gather and visit with friends. The breakfast at the cafe next door was a nice change from the usual stand in line and serve yourself. The choices... More

This hotel is one of the best we've ever stayed at. The staff went above and beyond the standards of service excellence to make our stay enjoyable. The accommodations were, like the staff, OUTSTANDING! The scenery and appearance of the exterior reflect superior management that is noticeable in the high quality of the entire staff.....definitely will go back!

We spent the last five nights here. The view of the gorge is awesome. Motel was very clean, beds were pillow tops and very comfortable The staff was friendly.The town pretty much shuts down at 2200. I would definitely stay here again.

Cascade Locks was a beautiful place and having a great place to stay made it that more pleasant. Facility as a whole was very clean with pleasant staff to assist. If you are a heavy sleeper I recommend a river view room as it is quite breathtaking especially at dusk. There are trains that run along the river as well... More

The Best Western Columbia River Inn is an excellent choice while visiting the Columbia River Gorge. The motel is clean, quiet, and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The housekeeping is immaculate, and the breakfast provided at the restaurant next door is more than adequate. The view from the riverside rooms is stunning although light sleepers might prefer a...

This hotel has one of the best views I have EVER seen! We chose to stay here instead of in Hood River because of the location/view photos I saw on TripAdvisor. It did not disappoint! The staff was all very friendly and the room was incredibly clean. Our bathroom sinks and mirror were in the room instead of in the... More
