Stayed here for a wedding, the rooms are adequate. The rooms with a river view are better as they have the view. Out dated and the sink is not in the bathroom. Rooms are very clean and staff are very friendly and helpful, Gardens are nice. You can purchase breakfast in the diner next door. Plumbing is extremely noisy, when... More

Older but clean hotel located in a beautiful location. We were passing through on our way to Lincoln City, OR and wanted to break up the trip. Thankfully we were able to enjoy one of the single floor rooms that had a fantastic view of the river. The hotel is very dog friendly with lots of areas to walk your... More

Thanks for your review, glad you had a nice visit on your way to the coast! Yep my grandparents started the hotel in '54, building our Classic building while working at the lumber mill. We've added on buildings through the years, our newest opening just last May. We'll continue to make improvements in the rooms and around the grounds as... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations and at the end of our stay we didn't want to leave. Our river front room had an amazing view. The beds were so comfortable and we had a cozy couch in the room as well. The shower was great too! If I ever come back, I will be sure to stay here!

Thanks much for your review! Please do give us a call next time you visit and we'll reserve a favorite room for a little longer stay. We're going to continue some more work around the grounds as well, so you'll have a few more places to enjoy the view! Thanks again More

We had a mid July wedding, late afternoon start. The grounds were amazing -- 75 guests sat in the amphitheater rows, and the other 70 were in seats on the lawn. The wedding party walked on the path above the river, which was such a beautiful entrance. The staff there is like a second event planner - - and all... More

As others have said, we were a little concerned when we drove in. Turns out our room (#79) was in the new section. We were wowed by the huge room and bathroom. I usually wake up prior to the rest of my family and have to spend uncomfortable hours perched on the side of bathtubs or bouncy toilet lids to... More

Thanks much for your review, glad you especially enjoyed your very restful night's sleep! We'll check into those sneaky gnats; they are attracted to lights at night. Glad you had plenty of space for the family to relax as well! Thanks again. More

We booked this lodge based on reviews written here. When we arrived, the main sign gave us a moment's pause - it was outdated and not very fancy compared to the two locations just next door. We were VERY pleasantly surprised after we checked in, got to our room and explored the grounds. The staff went out of their way... More

Had a room (#52) with a balcony that looked out over the Columbia River & Columbia River Gorge. The view was priceless. The grounds were nice & well kept.

So, my sweet dear wife and I just had our ceremony and reception at the Vagabond Lodge and it was truly one of the greatest weekend celebrations of my life!

First, the staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. The place itself is gorgeous; breathtaking views. My room had been described as "partial river view". That was an understatement - I had a fabulous view, of both the river and the venue for the wedding I was attending. Amenities were first rate - old but classy, with rain shower... More

We stayed at Hood River's Vagabond Hotel for a couple of nights. The room was not disappointing as far as it's cleanliness or the very comfortable bed. Those two things are extremely important to me, but for me there was something missing. I can't put my finger on it, maybe I'm just a little spoiled by other hotels. The grounds... More
