This hotel was a pleasant surprise, as we did not expect granite double sinks and a large flat screen TV at a Best Western hotel. The location is perfect, 4 miles from the Bonneville Dam and maybe 6 miles from the waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge. The river view was gorgeous, with the Washington coastline and the Bridge of... More

Lovely setting next to Columbia River. Would return in heartbeat. Extremely comfortable bedding and staff is very friendly. Even when the transformer fire down the street caused a black-out for a few hours, everyone helped. Would recommend a few more emergency lanterns for individual rooms. Overall, very happy we found this location!

This hotel has a great view of the river and the Bridge of the Gods. The room was spacious, quiet and clean. It's nice that breakfast is included at the restaurant next to the hotel. It is also near a couple other casual eating places and a grocery store. You are in between all the waterfall hiking trails to the... More

Spacious room, very clean, wonderful bed. We stayed on the ground floor facing the Columbia River - and, yes, the railroad tracks - but the trains were not very loud and I never heard a sound that night. The common area patio was a serene place to sit outside in the evening. Breakfast is included at the restaurant next door.

We enjoyed our stay here, beautiful view from the back of the hotel and an easy walk to the alehouse down the road for dinner! The breakfast included at the restaurant next door was pleasant with another beautiful view! This was a nice place to stay after hiking in the Columbia River Gorge all day.

We stayed here for one night as we made our way down the Columbia River, to Hood River, and around Mount Hood back home. This place is conveniently located right off the highway with stunning views of the river and the Bridge of the Gods. Check in was easy, our room was clean and comfortable. We opted for a balcony...

Stayed for two nights. This hotel is in a great location, right on the river and next to the Bridge of the Gods. The views from the back were fabulous. Rooms are spacious and clean. The beds are very comfortable! Staff is friendly and welcoming! I would definitely recommend staying here.

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The location of this hotel cannot be beat. It overlooks the beautiful Columbia River. Next to the Bridge of the Gods. Even with train activity, we slept well. The beds are comfy, the room was spacious (on the west end of the building). Would have preferred to have a balcony, but would have had to... More

Nice rooms that are very comfortable. Staff is very friendly. A breakfast voucher is given for a free breakfast at the restaurant next door, which was very good. Views of the Columbia River and Bridge of the Gods. Only down side was the proximity to the railroad tracks, but ear plugs were provided and my husband and I slept great.
