The BW Plus is the only hotel in Cascade Locks, but it's a perfect location for touring the Columbia River Gorge. Hood River and The Dalles are much larger and have more accommodations, but are further east. If you're only interested in seeing the Multnomah Falls and other falls along the river, Cascade Locks is the place to stay. The... More

This hotel is located right on the Columbia river with spectacular views i.e. river, Bridge of the Gods, Cascad Mtns (If on the correct side of the hotel) The staff is professional and helpful. Hotel clean. Why only 4 stars? There is a railroad track located right next to the hotel. Ear plugs are provided though I didn't feel a... More

I've stay at this location twice. The first time was great but the last time we went was not so great. The housekeeping quality went down. They spray some very strong cheap air freshener in the hallway. It made my skin react. I love the service at the front desk. They were always friendly. The location isn't bad for exploring... More

I am sorry that your experience with us was not good, and equally sorry that you would feel our housekeeping has dropped. I believe we have the best housekeeper in the area. I have asked both the Housekeeping department and the Maintenance Department to review their incident logs for a problem in the hallways. We hope you will return to... More

We spent one night here and really enjoyed our room. We had a balcony and even though it was on the ground floor we still had a nice view of the river. The AC was on when we first entered which was refreshing. Everything was well maintained. We were a little nervous when we saw the complimentary ear plugs and... More

Very comfortable and modern room but with a location 30 feet from the train tracks and trains going 24 hours a day, a horrible location if you care about sleep and quiet. The breakfast at the restaurant next door was good and the staff was friendly. But the noise from trains guarantees we will never be back. Especially at $170... More

I know the train noise can be difficult for some guest and I am sorry they gave you a bad time. It is unfortunate the tracks run the entire length of the Gorge. We hope you will return to the National Scenic Area and we invite you to stay with us on the hillside of the property. Again I am... More

We did our honeymoon here. The location is so beautiful and accessible to some of the best waterfall hikes in the country, Mt Hood, Portland, and wineries and breweries in Hood River. Despite not having a river view room available for the entire duration of our stay, the staff, on finding out it was our honeymoon, managed to rearrange reservations... More

The balcony rooms on the river side of this property are enchanting. The staff are helpful, the rooms are clean, bright and well appointed. The town is small but has what you need. Breakfast is served at a resturant next door to the hotel but is only a few steps away and the quality is good. There are trains that... More

We are so lucky to be located on the Columbia River with these amazing views, thank you for staying with us.

This is a beautiful property perched on the cascades of the Columbia River near Mt. Hood. Incredible scenery everywhere. This property is beautiful and has very large rooms and clean/comfy/well appointed rooms. The restaurant next door is delicious and friendly too. A definite place to stay in Cascade Locks.

Lovely smiling reception when we arrived, quiet room had been requested so we were put on the top floor. We had also booked a river view room – really don’t know how I missed all the comments about the trains – so although the view was really lovely, we were a bit put out when the first train of 70...

My King room on the bottom floor of the hotel, was quiet and comfortable. Also had a great view of the river. The Hotel has a great location along the Columbia River. The breakfast provided by the hotel, was at the restaurant next door, food was good, this restaurant also had great views.
