Assistance quickly and efficiently. The staff is friendly and kind. The pool or the tub we did not use. Wireless connection very good. The only negative thing is the breakfast included. Unfortunately it must eat in the Bistro located next to the structure. Not bad, but unfortunately the same is by menu and this latest offering very little.

We enjoyed our one night stay here - wish we stayed a 2nd night. Large, clean room with comfy bed. Enjoyed the riverfront grounds. Sat a patio in the morning with good, robust coffee from the lobby area. The complimentary breakfast was in restaurant next door: your choice of several options, I had eggs, apple sausage & yummy 7-grain toast.... More

Right on the Columbia River at the Bridge of the Gods. Public leisure room and patio with killer views up the Columbia River Gorge. Included breakfast is next door at Charburger -- it was much better than many in-hotel breakfasts.

The Inn is on the Oregon side of the Bridge of the Gods. Our visit to this area was wonderful and our room faced the river and it was sensational. I loved being able to sit in the comfort of our room and look out at the river and the beautiful scenery. The Inn was very clean and comfortable and... More

Big river front/train tracks room on 4th floor. Nice view of the Columbia River and the Bridge of the Gods. Trains go by 6 or 7 times a day. Train noise not a problem. Free breakfast in restaurant next door was OK. Good central location for seeing the sites.... waterfalls, boat trips, locks, etc. Soft ice cream shop close by.... More

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.

I am sorry the noise level in the hotel the night you were staying with us was loud, despite what you say we did make every effort to get the wedding group to quiet down...they were very excited to celebrate the wedding. If we could move the train out of The National Scenic Area we would do it today. I... More

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
