First off, note that not all rooms have riverfront balconies. You should for sure pay extra and get one of those. The riverview is spectacular, with amazing sunsets,too. The trains are frequent but earplugs and the double windows really help. That shouldn't keep you from staying here. The front desk people are excellent and the breakfast is complete and very...

We got the last room on a Tuesday night. The staff was very helpful as we had issues with our key card. If you enjoy trains, be sure to get a room overlooking the river. Trains on both sides. We also had a view of the "Bridge of the Gods".

This looks to be the best place in the area, in my opinion--nicely located among many Gorge attractions. It's on the river and within walking distance of the Port, which is a nice park. I agree with other reviews that paying extra to be on the river side is worthwhile (some have balconies, others just big view windows)--although this also... More

This Bestwestern is very very nice, the view of the "Bridge of the Gods" can't get any better as the hotel is right beside it and pretty much stands on the bank of the Columbia River at the historic Cascade Locks. All of the rooms over look the river and have their own private balcony or patio....the balconies and patios... More

The Best Western Plus in Cascade Locks has a wonderful location if you are visiting the Columbia River Gorge area. It is next to the Bridge of the Gods and right on the river. We stayed in a double queen room that was huge - had the 2 beds plus a couch, coffee table, and table with 2 chairs. We... More

This hotel is a good place to stay if you are visiting the Gorge since it's the closest hotel - about 8 miles from the historic highway. The motel inself is nice, large rooms, quiet & a good breakfast. Spend the extra $30 to get a river balcony room which is very scenic & a great place to watch the... More

My wife reserved a room for three nights last August (2011) and requested a river view room with a balcony. When we arrived on 17th July 2012 we were allocated room 115, which was situated on the lower level (the hotel is partially built on a hillside so the reception desk is on level 2) – my wife queried this...

This hotel is right on the bank of the Columbia River, which makes for terrific views. But be aware that train tracks run between the hotel and the river. Expect your sleep to be interrupted several times a night by long freight trains roaring past. If you have good ear plugs or can sleep through anything, then I recommend this... More

Although we did not have a waterview room, we still enjoyed this hotel. The rooms are spotless and a nice size. The front desk help are very friendly and professional, especially BRENDA, the night clerk! She was so helpful, friendly, and hospitable. It was very nice to have the free hot breakfast. All items were good, but the scrambled eggs... More

I am so pleased you had a great stay with us. We have been delighted with the good weather which we often do not get a great deal of, I can only imagine how wonderful it must have been to visit the National Scenic Area during this time.Again we are happy that your stay was good, thank you. More
