Great room for the money. My husband and I had a queen room in the new section of the lodge. It was great and for a very reasonable price. Very clean and comfy! The staff is great! Coffee and hot chocolate in the office. I would prefer real coffee cups...but, still enjoyed the hot chocolate after a long drive!

Thanks for your review! We provide the paper coffee cups in our office and the rooms because a lot of people like to take theirs to go. We do have actual coffee mugs as well, please do let us know next time you visit and we can have them waiting in your room for you. Thanks again! More

We were passing through and really loved our quick stay here. Wished we could of stayed longer. Check in was easy. Office smelled musty but they were obvious doing work on it. Lots of ongoing updates and money put into this place. Beautiful grounds suitable for weddings. Awesome ginormous missy boulders all over. We got a riverfront suite # 61.... More

We stayed here on our way south from BC to California and were pleasantly surprised with the room. It was large, clean, well appointed and comfortable, there were a couple of restaurants in walking distance. We were in one of the newer rooms, end unit on the 2nd floor. We would stay here again for sure.

We had a ground floor fireplace room with a river view and it was awesome. Very spacious room with a kitchenette. There was heating in the bathroom which was nice but at night time got a little noisy because it turns on and off on its own. I would recommend to just double check your booking at this place because... More

Thanks for your review, we'll take a peek at that heater unit. Regarding your booking, sorry for that confusion. It's always best to contact us directly if there are any worries or concerns about a room being available. I'll go through and recheck the 3rd party systems to fix anything they may be missing. Glad you had a wonderful time... More

This was a living social deal. I was let down by the noise in the room. Noisy pipes and thin walls. The views were blocked by the rail on the deck. Beds were Comfortable.The deck was nice and the View was good. Very scalding hot water

Thanks for your review, we checked on that hot water yesterday and got everything fixed. Sorry the railing is at that height, it has to be a certain height to meet code for safety reasons. I'll check into a couple options for using a different design to open up that view a bit more. In the meantime we'll continue making... More

i am blown away that you can get a cliff side river View room for $75 in Hood River. I am a Hood River local and saw the old vagabond on the tv show Hotel Impossible. Had to check it out and was not disappointed! Well done!

Thanks for your review! Yes, our views out back are still a bit of a hidden secret that can't be seen from the road. We're continuing to improve the grounds and view as well so more guests can enjoy our little spot! Thanks again. More

Wonderful little place with spectacular views. Good bang for your buck. Few minutes away from downtown Hood River and Full Sail Brewery. We had a wonderful time and will return for another visit. Thank you for the hospitality

I found out about this charming property from "Hotel Impossible." I was a deep affinity for Anthony Melchiorri because of my own background in the travel and hospitality industry. So when Anthony, with all his bluster and swagger, deemed the Vagabond Lodge a good one right from the start, I knew one day I would visit. Hood River itself is... More

Thanks much for your review, glad you enjoyed your visit with us! Glad you enjoyed our new courtyard building and we will continue making improvements throughout all our rooms. We're expanding the amphitheater these last few days: laying stone to wrap around for everyone to enjoy the view. It is a great spot for a picnic, reading, or writing. Definitely... More
