Overall, it was a nice stay. I would definitely ask for either the upper 3rd or 4th floor. I would also make sure nothing was blocking the view. The first night there I left my window open and at about 2:30 a.m. I woke up to a group of young men talking very loudly and walking around. I shut the... More

The room and motel were very clean and I appreciate having a refrigerator and microwave in the room. I wish I had more time to use the pool and fitness rooms. Very nice view of the river from the motel. I would definitely stay here again if I am in the area.

Great room with a great view plus breakfast. Rooms were clean and spacious. Beat staying in my tent during Columbia Cascades Trail Skills College! Train noise was minimal even though being just above the tracks. I slept well 2 nights in a row.

BW Plus was a wonderful hotel for my daughter and me. The room was spacious and more comfortable than I had hoped for. The view of the river and the bridge was right outside the window! Beautiful location right next to the bridge. Lot's of interesting folklore here. Breakfast was served at the restaurant next door and was amazing. I... More

Stayed here on way to colleges after a late start out of Boise. Didn't know it even existed over there! Beautiful view of river. Would love to stay again and explore the hiking trails. Breakfast was great, room excellent for the price. Highly recommend.

What mystical view of the bridge, it does live up to its name. Loved the trains and river barges. So historical. Lots of help from the hotel. The beds were extremely comfy and the room was so clean. Very relaxing.

Nice hotel - clean, friendly hotel. Highly recommended. We had a room with the view of the Columbia river and it was beautiful to see the barges and trains go by. The breakfast was served at a near by restaurant and the food was good. Great experience.
