Incredible scenery. Very6 clean hotel with nice ammenities and a friendly and courteous staff. The nearest place to eat is called Charburger and although it offers fantastice views of the Columbia River and The Bridge of the Gods, their food leaves a little to be desired. Also, there are 2 main train tracks just below the back of the property... More

We had a very nice experience with the staff recommending places to eat and explore. The room was very clean, with nice amenities and the most comfy bed we have slept on in a long time. The spa tub was nice, could be a little bit larger but very nice. We would definitely come here again.

This hotel is very clean and comfy. The view of the river is breathtaking and the staff were extremely helpful. Overall a very nice experience. We would come back again, the king bed was the most comfortable bed we have slept on in a long time. The spa tub in the room was great too.

For the past 4 years we have stayed at this location in November/December as it is a perfect resting spot for us after we ride the Polar Express in Hood River. At check out, we reserve the same room for the following year to make sure we get one of the 2Q/K1 suites which works perfect for 4 adults/2 children.... More

We have stayed here before back in 2012 and ended up being given exactly the same room with a beautiful view over the river. Despite it being two years ago, we were pleasantly surprised to find that little in the hotel has changed and standards have been maintained. We used the gym room, pool and hot tub and were pleased... More

I am pleased we were here when you needed us, the weather has been rainy and cold. Thank you for staying with us and I am happy you got to enjoy the fabulous view of the mountains and waterfalls all iced over. We hope you will return to the Gorge and invite you to stay with us again. More

The river, and bridge of the Gods view was beautiful, and the included breakfast voucher for the charburger restaurant next door made the value of the room that much better. This was a prepared meal that far surpassed any continental breakfast I've ever had. I will stay her again if I'm ever traveling through this part of Oregon again..

Very nice clean rooms right on the river at the Bridge of the Gods. Helpful friendly staff, pool and spa, great scenery. The decor is all local scenes and history. Lots to do in the area, or just grab a beer and watch the river run by.

Thank you for staying with us in historic Cascade Locks and I am pleased you noticed the historical art work in the hotel from the surrounding area. The original Locks for the paddle boats is just a short few blocks from the hotel and some of the photos are of those Locks. We hope you will return to the Gorge... More

I made reservations for three room by calling the hotel directly and felt like I had made a friend, as the lady I spoke to was extremely helpful and friendly. Same experience when I had to cancel one room. The hotel is immaculate in every aspect, from lobby to rooms. Our rooms had a stunning view of the Bridge of... More

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

Thank you for staying with us, I am pleased you found us off the Interstate and on the river front. I also am pleased that the trains that run on both sides of the river did not give you at bad time and you were able to rest. We hope you will return to the Pacific Northwest and invite you... More
