Cute little place that's. Affordable on the river. The owner is really nice and willing to help. They really made our stay a great one. Only stayed one night. There was no light in the shower and there was a musty smell in the room but when you opened the windows and let the amazing breeze flow through...it was nice.

We stayed in on the 3rd floor of the 3-story building at the back of the property, and it was "worth the price of admission." Our double-queen room very spacious and furnished in an appealing contemporary style, the view was just gorgeous--we got in around 5:00 pm and there were still kiteboarders out on the river that we watched for...

By luck we found this accommodation. Wonderful place. We had a room for the disabled, and it is huge! Everything was perfect, the bath area, again, huge and wonderful. I would recommend this Inn to anyone. Clean, comfy all upgraded and reasonable prices! Right on a gorgeous riverbank!

Spent two nights in early August. Room was comfortable, view was great for that particular part of the river. Very quiet. Couldn't get over how beautiful the grounds themselves were. Easy drive to do the fruit loop or Hood River. Nice place to take it easy.

We were a bit leary upon entering the office as things looked more than a bit dated, like "a blast frrom the past." However, we had rooms located in what they called the "stacks" and though we had the lower level, I thought the view of the river and surrounding grounds ( that include a short hiking trail) was very...

Thanks for your review! Yes, our front building and office is about all guests can see from the road, built by my grandparents back in '54. We have plans for updating the front, as well as more work around the property. Thanks again! More

The rooms are clean and large. Just not fancy. It is a motel. Ask for a room in the building along the river and the top floor. Balcony overlooks the whole area. Beautiful view. Convenient to all the activities in the area.

I stayed there with family while in the area to attend a wedding. The rooms we had were fairly new and very clean. They came with a mini coffee maker, small frig (no freezer compartment and I never did locate the ice machines) and a very small microwave. That was the extent of the amenities. There was no hot tub,... More

Thanks for your review, sorry we couldn't offer everything you were looking for. We can't access the river from where we are because we're on top of a 200 foot cliff overlooking the river. There is an access road down at the end of our street, as well as the new Riverfront Park toward downtown. There are 3 restaurants next... More

The complex is on a surprisingly large treed property adjacent to the Colombia Gorge Hotel, so you get all the benefits of the views for half the price. The rooms were a little dated, but very clean and comfortable and had fridge and microwave to make up for it. You are a little ways out of town here so you'll... More

We took a chance after reading reviews on the location of this lovely little motel. It reminded me of the places my family stayed at when I was a kid as we travelled from CA to Tx. No frills just funky and cool little rooms right near the cliff overlooking the gorge. Like staying at a families summer house ...... More

We stumbled upon this place and was very pleased with what we found. Although it seemed a little dated it was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The view outside the window looking down into the Columbia River was awesome. We also enjoyed seeing the beautiful flowers and the park-like setting. They were pet friendly and we loved having...
