The grounds for this hotel are shared with its big brother, the Columbia gorge hotel. I found the grounds to stunning, and the views. Our hotel was very nice, with a large room partially overlooking the gorge. (Next time, closer room) the weekend felt luxurious. The front desk people were polite and ready to help with anything needed. I would... More

Dear Tracy F, So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and especially that we will be seeing you again in the future. As you mentioned, not all our rooms are identical. TripAdvisor travelers should note that we offer a wide variety of rooms and suites at various rates. Most (but not all) offer great river views from high... More

We stayed at the Columbia Cliff Villas Hotel in a large two bedroom apartment with kitchen and laundry facilities from June 21 to June 24, 2015. Very luxurious and very well appointed. One large master bedroom and another smaller but excellent second bedroom. The apartment extends over two floors and is very roomy. The main living area is large and... More

Dear Bill H, Thanks for your positive comments. We do have screens on several windows but recently removed them from the large double sliding screen doors to maximize views, optimize air conditioning efficiency and minimize noise in units that have some exposure to the road. Fortunately, the same Gorge winds that have made Hood River a world-class windsurfing and kiteboarding... More

Only real downfall is that our room was located right next to the freeway, so it was really noisy. It was tough to open the doors and windows because of the noise. Otherwise, the room was very nice, clean and really comfortable.

Dear misty r, Thanks for posting your positive comments. All our rooms and windows were built with extra soundproofing to create a sound barrier against exterior noise that exceeds most hotels. Some of our standard rooms are located on the back side of the hotel where they are exposed to road noise, especially when the windows are left open. These... More

We enjoyed our stay at Columbia Cliff Hotel. We rented the penthouse and it was very spacious and very well put together. The beds were very comfortable as well. I would have gave it a five star, but the train woke us up every morning at 4:45 am thru 8 am. Then it stops believe it or not for awhile.... More

Dear ShayN, Glad to hear that you will be returning. We can't do much about the train traffic, which effects virtually every hotel in the Gorge. But TA travelers should know that all our buildings were built with extra soundproofing and special dual-density windows, which work very well when guests are willing to close them and enjoy the air conditioning...

Our room was beautiful. It was like a small condo without a kitchen. The room was also very quiet and a great place to relax. That said, we spent $300/night which for this location seems like a lot. There are no amenities although the staff was very helpful at check in. Overall, I liked the hotel, but thought it was... More

Dear boydpc, Thank you for your positive comments.

If you're looking to stay on the Columbia River Gorge, this is the place. Brand new rooms, exceptionally clean with a staff that was almost shockingly helpful and polite. I wasn't expecting much to be honest, small town, local hotel, etc; but I was blown away with the customer service and room quality. Free and good wifi, fridge, microwave, etc.... More

Excellent service. Front desk staff was extremely accommodating. The room was perfect, the bed soothing after a long day on the road. Watching people wind and kite surfing on the colombia river was very relaxing. Saw bald eagel and osprey fishing . A hidden gem (bring binoculars!)

The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Very nice and clean rooms that are extremely nicely decorated. I probably would have never discovered this place if it were not for tripadvisor. But the staff could use a little work. I was not quite impressed with them.

We love this place. Convenient , yet isolated. Beautiful room with view of the gorge and river. Beautiful garden. Historic hotel and delightful restaurant next door. Easy garden walk. We could not be more pleased. Everything you need and beyond, even a fireplace. Lovely accommodations in every way.hood River is a lovely town for eating out.

Dear docs407, Couldn't have stated it better myself. TA readers should note that Columbia Cliff Villas offers a wide variety of rooms and 1-3 bedroom suits. Online travel sites do not have the complete story. There is much more extensive information, pictures and floor plans, as well as special offers and guaranteed best rates, only on our website.
