4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Vagabond is older (60 years, I think), and the rooms are from that era. Everything is clean and up to date. The Vagabond is right on the Columbia River and has a park-like setting behind the rooms, facing the river. We happened to have brought folding lawn chairs along, and spent a very peaceful afternoon sitting in the yard... More

This place was picked for us by family as we travelled up the gorge. On arrival it looks like one of the motels we had seen on the 70's movies but clean and tidy. Our room was at the back on the ground floor although it had views of the river it was limited because of the trees. The room... More

Thanks for your review! Glad you enjoyed the grounds; we'll keep improving them this winter to enjoy next year. It's one of those nice surprises people can't see from the road because there's so much space tucked in back. Thanks again for visiting us! More

I grew up in the Willamette Valley Area of Oregon and my Great Grandparents lived in Husum, Washington which is NW of White Salmon. In the summer time I would go with my grandparents to the farm to spend a long week-end, which I always looked forward to. The trip took us up I-84 along the Columbia River Gorge and... More

After fishing on the Columbia River, we stayed at this lodge that overlooks the Columbia River. The view out our window was spectacular!! The grounds host numerous weddings throughout the year and once you see the grounds, you understand why. Visit their website for pictures of their location.The rooms were quaint and clean. Since the room was on the backside... More

We had a very nice room with balcony & amazing unobstructed view of Columbia River. Very clean large room with frig & microwave & comfortable beds and very quiet location in Hood River.

We stayed at the Vagabond Lodge at the recommendation of a friend who lives near the area. Not expecting much, we were very pleased with our river view room. Very spacious, unbelievably clean and a spectacular view of the Columbia River. The grounds are well maintained and quite beautiful. My only complaint is that the beds were too soft for... More

We found the Vagabond quite by accident after a long day of driving. Our ADA room was the best we've had in 2 1/2 weeks of traveling! Comfortable beds, reserved parking spot, BIG room, and the most beautiful spot in Hood River. We wandered the grounds and took some gorgeous pictures from the "back yard". A really nice, quiet place... More

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!
