Great place, right along the river, with a nice view from our balcony. It is just a hotel -- no pool, no gym, no restaurant -- but with lovely grounds, and easy parking, and quiet location. Great staff, too.

Thanks much for your review! Even though we don't have our own restaurant there are 3 to choose from right next door, plus all the wonderful choices in town. We'll continue making improvements and will put together a special for our guests with a local gym. Thanks again! More

Beautiful views of Columbia Gorge! We were looking for an affordable yet special place to stay to celebrate our anniversary. Hood River, Or is an amazing town with a lot to explore. This hotel is off of highway, however rooms along the gorge are private and quiet. Very clean sizable rooms. Give it a try you wont regret it. There... More

We travel with our dog, this was a great place for us. The room was extremely large and comfortable, all the amenities were very pleasant. There are great trails to explore and views of the Columbia River Gorge are steps away from your room! Plenty of places to sit and enjoy mother nature's splendor!

The staff here was so attentive it was great - They called to confirm our reservation and ask if we needed anything prior to arrival. We were traveling with a dog and they had no problem with it.

Thanks for your review, glad you had a nice time. We're updating the furniture in all of our rooms, as the furniture is made. It's all handcrafted using solid wood, so it takes a little time to refurnish all of our rooms. We have a few more updates on the way as well. Thanks again! More

We visited Vagabond Lodge again for two nights. First time was in June '12. This time weather was not so good. Rained most of time. We got a river view room again, but did not sit on balcony, still could enjoy the view from inside. Can't remember coffee pot last time, but did not like the tiny coffee pot, one... More

We bought a great deal on Living Social for a river view room and stayed 2 nights in room #34. When making our reservation we were told the lodge was out of river view rooms for the weekend we planned to stay, so we paid an additional $63 to upgrade to a suite. Our room was on the second story... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in a "partial view" room (#19). I was afraid it would be one of those where you had to look out the bathroom window to enjoy the partial view so we were very pleased to find our view included the beautiful grounds and a wide stretch of the Columbia.

Excellent place to gear down. The room was extremely clean and well maintained. The grounds are like a walk in a fine park. Stay here if you get a chance. Upscale setting with a down home feel. Very nice.
