We stopped her impromptu after driving home from Boise. It was becoming a long trip and I needed a break. I called and they had a room available. Unfortunately, the front desk person would not extend any discounts like, AAA when asked. We took the room anyway. It was a queen double room with a balcony facing the bridge and... More

Friendly staff and a beautiful location will bring us back to this hotel again! Free full breakfast next door was an added bonus. It would be a wonderful romantic weekend trip if you're in the Portland area!

The location of the hotel was perfect for the Lewis and Clark trail and the Oregon scenic byway. The hotel was comfortable, the bed was comfortable, and I slept without any interruption from the train below the window. The breakfast at the restaurant was good. Not too many restaurant choices.

We stayed here on our way home after a trip to OHSU in Portland for treatment in a clinical trial for my husband's cancer. It was a relaxing location and the hotel was well-staffed and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast at the restaurant next door was very good.

We enjoyed a wonderful day in Cascade Locks and our stay at Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn was a real delightful part of that experience. We had a riverside room on the fourth floor with a small balcony looking out over the Columbia River. The great river is remarkable, but the landscape is dominated by a truly stunning view... More

Thank you for staying with us on your recent trip through The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. I never get tired of looking at that million dollar view and if I could move those train tracks today I would. We hope you will return to the Gorge and invite you to stay with us again. More

This hotel is right on the Columbia River. We had a balcony room and the view of the Columbia was picture postcard. Cascade Locks is out of the way, sort of a one-horse town, but this Best Western is clearly the only place to stay in the area.

We stayed in a suite and we were very impressed. Double sinks were useful especially for a family with 3 daughters. The breakfast is served at the restaurant next door and is very satisfying. The pool and hot tub are good to entertain the kids. Unlike most hotels the beds are soft and comfortable. Some things that we didn't like... More

We went here for our first night after flying into Portland. It is very clean and the rooms are big. We had a microwave, coffee maker and fridge. The view out the window is beautiful. It is right next to the Bridge of the Gods. Breakfast in the morning at the restaurant right next door. This is much better than... More

Wonderful location on the Columbia River right next to Bridge of the Gods. Ample free parking. Room is spacious and bed extremely comfortable. Nice pool area. Front desk staff was helpful and welcoming. Note that the 2nd floor is actually the main floor. Rooms on 1st are down a floor from the lobby. There is only one elevator.

Had to see Herman the 400 lb sturgeon at the Hatchery by BPA. Bryan Doyle wrote about him in Children and Other Wild Animals. Perfect location at Cascade Locks to visit all the points of interest we chose.
