IMy husband and I enjoy staying at the BW Plus Columbia River Inn due to the great scenery, pleasant and efficient staff of the area and many opportunities for learing and enjoyment. However, we did not enjoy this Inn's new treatment of breakfast. One has to leave one's room and go next door (no indoor connection) to get the morning... More

We just stayed here for the 2nd time and it was exceptional again. We had a room with a river view and enjoyed it tremendously. Apparently some folks object to the river side of this hotel because there are train tracks that go right by the hotel and also there are tracks on the Washington side of the river. This,... More

The hotel is situated on the banks of the Columbia River, with great views of the Bridge of the Gods and the river, especially if you pay a little extra for the balcony rooms on the river side. It is centrally located for hiking, biking and sightseeing in the Columbia Gorge area. A great breakfast in the next door restaurant... More

You are correct Historical Cascade Locks is in the "heart of the Gorge" and is close to all the wonderful outdoor activities. Thank you for staying with us and we invite you to return to the National Scenic Area and stay with us again. More

I picked this hotel on the internet because it promised a River view..and it did not disappoint. The view over the river from our balcony was fantastic, the staff excellent, bed was comfortable and breakfast was outstanding. There is a train that goes by, very close, but we barely heard it..... even without the new, wrapped, earplugs that the staff... More

Thank you for staying with us while you were in the National Scenic Area. The views from the hotel out the river looking north are incredible and today we are getting quite a show a thunder and lighting shower over the river and mountains. We hope you will return to the Gorge and we invite you to stay with us... More

Michelle and her co workers are the best. Recommend not water side unless you don't mind train noise. Free breakfast is off site...Price is right food is average. Nice pool, hot tub and exercise area. Good internet connection in room. Close to Oregon Washington border. $1.00 to cross over Cascade Locks bridge.

Gosh you covered all the bases, thank you for staying with us. It is nice to have the option of not staying on the river side if you think the trains might bother you, if I could move those tracks I would do it today. The Bridge of the Gods and the surrounding area has so much history that a... More

My room was on the south side (highway side) of the hotel. The room was excellent and there was no highway noise that we could notice. We hear the rooms on the river side could hear the railroad noise but the view of the river is on that side.

We'd stay there again. Large room with balcony overlooking the river, unfortunately for some folks, the train runs by at all times of day and night. We weren't really bothered by them, but some people might be. I guess that's why earplugs are furnished in the room. Two (count 'em: two) sinks, both outside the bathroom. Good room lighting. My...

Had to get used to the noise of the trains just below the balcony, but it added to the charm of the location The scenery was very nice. Breakfast we could have done without. lot of food but the service and staff in restaurant was not very friendly

Comfortable hotel right by the river and toll bridge. For me it was just an OK hotel. Everything worked, breakfast was fine and staff were pleasant but - for the price - I thought it was only very average and somehow a bit soulless.

It was the highlight of our week long trek from Astoria to Clarkston. The view of the bridge and river were amazing. The train also went by the hotel next to the river and was a unique treat. The hotel provided ear plugs if the train bothered you, but it was a fabulous experience because that is part of the... More
