The hotel is right on the river. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Breakfast is served at the restaurant next door, and the food was very good...the view was even better. It was a peaceful and friendly place to spend the night and escape from the crazy freeway. There are trains going by, but it was not a problem,... More

I think this hotel has been updated recently. Our family of 4 had a great 2 night visit while exploring the area. Nothing but good things to say about the whole experience. I think I slept better there then I did at home in my own bed.

My wife and I had an amazing room and paid additional for an upgrade to a jet tub and patio. Room was clean and full of thoughtful amenities. The facility is great and the location can't be beat. We felt that, while the staff assisted us with a few minor needs, we both felt there was not much sense of... More

Thank you for staying with us on your recent visit to the Gorge. I am sorry that our Front Desk Staff failed you, this is not a normal remark made towards my Front Desk Staff and I will investigate to see if something was wrong. I hope you will give us another opportunity to show you are Superior Customer Care. More

Very good value in excellent room, free breakfast next door, Wi-Fi, etc. Our efficient rate didn't merit us a view room, on the river. Most of our stay, however, was in the dark anyway, so no problem. Still a beautiful and convenient setting. We were just a quick drive across the bridge ($1 toll) to get to Skamania Lodge for...

It sounds like you have been here before and I want to thank you for staying with us. The National Scenic Area is beautiful even when the east wind is howling and the temps are cold. We hope you will return to the gorge and invite you to stay with us again. More

We were there for a football game. 4hours from home. Rooms and hotel itself was clean, beautiful view of the Columbia River and Bridge of the Gods. Train did go by frequently, but they supplied you with earplugs. Breakfast was wonderful, other that having to walk across the parking lot to another building. Hotel coffee was terrible!

Thank you for staying with us on your recent football trip, it must have been Stevenson High School you were playing? I am pleased you enjoyed your breakfast next door and I agree with you about our coffee, this was a "temporary" laps in good judgment, we are going back to our old stand by.

If not for unreliable wi-fi I would rate it highly. The bed was quite comfortable. The room was on the non-view side and was very quiet. Some of the other reviews I read mentioned train noise being a problem. This was not an issue for us as we barely noticed a couple of trains. Breakfast provided at the adjoining restaurant... More

I visited this area for work and my wife traveled with me. Cascade Locks is a small town on the river and anything on the river borders the train tracks that run along the water. We had a room on the river side of the hotel and all night long the trains sang to us. They don't carry a lot... More

Thank you for staying with us, if I could move those train tracks out of the National Scenic Area I would do it today. I am sorry they gave you a bad time. Also I want you to know that I will visit with the restaurant next door regarding your comments, we all want this to be a positive experience.... More

We stopped in randomly on this place in the winter, and stayed for a couple of days. We got a room overlooking the Gorge, and the Bridge of the Gods was off to the left above us. Our room had a balcony and hot tub in the living room. Across the bridge and about 10 minutes down the road is... More

Well thank you for staying with us in this "un-haunted" hotel. Those girls at the Pub love to get the guest worked up about ghosts in town, especially close to Halloween.

There is a reason why this is our home-away-from-home when traveling on the north coast of Oregon or the south coast of Washington: its a great place to stay. The rooms are consistently comfortable, clean and ready when we are. The staff is friendly, outgoing and genuinely interested in their guests well-being.

A very enjoyable stay. Very conveniently located next to Bridge of the Gods and easy access for old route 30 and all the waterfalls along that road.

Thank you for staying with us on your recent trip through The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.
