So glad we stayed at this Best Western. Our room was facing the river, should have booked the one with balcony. The view of the river and the bridge is so beautiful. Friendly staff! Breakfast was great! Bed was comfy! Close to neighboring attractions: the falls, dam, hatchery, gorge, Hood river. Trains did not bother us, we love trains! We... More

We loved this hotel!! The staff were very courteous and friendly upon check-in and throughout our stay. Due to the late date of requesting a reservation, I could only get a suite, and I am so glad I did. It was on the 4th floor, was huge, and had large windows that gave us an awesome view of the Columbia... More

I marked them all 10's. Friendly, courteous staff. Very clean and well decorated. The breakfast at the restaurant next door was good and the burger at dinner the night before was great. CASCADE LOCKS, OREGON is a great little town with a very nice park on the river and plenty of roadside places to eat including a fruit stand.

The hotel staff was very helpful. I originally booked 1 room for 2 nights and needed one more at the last minute but the hotel was fully booked. The staff was great and fortunately there was a cancellation and I was able to get the second room. The complimentary breakfast at the Charburger restaurant next door had several choices and... More

Great location, just a short drive to Hood River, OR. Many near by trails to go explore. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Hotel breakfast was included which was nice. It was not your typical continental breakfast, you could order off the hotels menu and eat a real breakfast to start your day.

We stayed here 4 nights. Great jumping off point for many attractions - we hit the waterfalls (Hwy 30), Mt. St. Helens Windy Ridge (an all day trip to Windy Ridge and back), the Paddle Boat 2hr tour, Larch Mt viewpoint. Lovely view of the river and trains and Bridge of the Gods. We were on the 4th floor -... More

Fun and Historical area with Lewis & Clark history, and fish Hatcheries. This is the place to stay and check out all the Wineries and Mountain activities. We also enjoyed the Stern wheeler cruise on the Columbia River, with dinner on board the vessel. Hood River has also a lot to offer to sight-see and shop for antiques. Crossed the... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights (Aug 12-14) and loved staying there. We had a great view of the river and mountains. Our children were delighted with the number of trains going by (every 30 mins or so) on the Oregon side as well as in Washington. The rooms were clean and done up well. I loved the... More

We stayed two nights in a 2nd floor balcony room overlooking the river. Room was nice and staff was friendly. The view was great. We spent more time on the balcony than we ever have at a non-resort hotel. The trains are noisy, but it only bothered one of our family of four. Daytime trains no issue for us. Stevenson... More

Thank you for staying with us in Historic Cascade Locks. I will pass your great comment onto the restaurant, also I sorry the train gave one of your travel companions a hard time, if I could move that track I would do it today.
