We have stayed in similar types of locations and found this to be superior to what we have normally found. The hotel was clean and comfortable, in a great location, and the staff was very accommodating. We'd definitely stay here again.

When paying extra for a room with a view on the river side, it should be told that there is a train track right near your window. Thankfully the trains seemed to stop about 11 pm & don't start up until about 6 am; but during the day they run about every half hour. The breakfast is not a buffet... More

Thank you for staying with us while you were on your hiking trip, I wish I could move those train tracks out of The Gorge. Thankfully the scenery and hiking is spectacular in the National Scenic Area and it makes up for the train noise. We invite you to stay with us again the next time you are in the... More

we really enjoyed the view and enjoyed having a jacuzzi tub in our room. we were using this as a stopping point between home and the final destination of our honeymoon, the Oregon Coast. staying here allowed us to make stops at both Multanomah Falls and the Portland Zoo on our way to the Oregon Coast.

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. Everyone was really nice! It was the best hotel in Cascade Locks, and it was a reasonable price. The view from the room was fabulous! Our room overlooked the Bridge of the Gods. The hot tub was a great amenity at the end of a long day. When I return to the area... More

We thought this must be the best place to stay in the Columbia Gorge. We had a very comfortable room with a little balcony looking out on the river and the Bridge of the Gods. Breakfast was at the restaurant next door--not a buffet--ordered off a limited menu.

Really enjoyed the view, the accomodation and the complimetery breakfast at the restaurant. The staff was always helpful and cheerful made the stay very nice. They had a very nice separate room by the pool where you could play cards and watch the view.

We had a room with a balcony with a spectacular view of the Columbia River, the Bridge of the Gods and trains as they passed by below us. We spent a relaxing evening and morning on the balcony watching the activity on all. I'm a light sleeper, I was concerned that the trains might wake us at night, but they... More

We stayed here on our way through from Victoria BC home to Idaho. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The room was great and the views of the river were fantastic. We got to watch the sternwheeler go by several times, which the kids loved. The only drawback to the location is food. You really need to plan ahead, especially in... More

Thank you for staying with us on your recent family vacation. I am pleased "Alligator Face" was saved from a certain doom of the dreaded "lost and found" closet...it is scary in there. We hope you will travel through the Gorge again and invite you to stay with us. More

During the time I stayed at Cascade Locks Best Western, I was happy with the person at the front desk who checked me in and how clean and neat my room was, but I was very dissatisfied with the Room Temperature. The air conditioner was loud when it ran, which combined with the heat inhibited me from getting any sleep.... More

Even though it was raining we had a good trip, the hotel feels very comfortable, clean and neat. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was a voucher for the diner next door and was simple but very good. The view of Bridge of the Gods and the Columbia River from our balcony room was breathtaking. We stayed 2... More
