We were so please with our stay here! We stayed in 2 different rooms over 4 days.. The courtyard rooms are newer, and the views are nice. The river view rooms are older, but charming, and the view is fabulous. Everything was very clean and comfortable. We had private balconies in both rooms. We appreciated the wine glasses and cork...

The Vagabond is easy to find and spot from the road. It is a bit outside town, but very quick and easy to drive to the main part of town. The Hotel is a bit dated, but an excellent value. The rooms were clean with a lovely view of the river and calming landscapes and vistas. The coffee machines in... More

Parts of the Vagabond are quite "vintage." We stayed in a newer river view room and loved it. It's very clean and comfortable, with a private balcony overlooking the Columbia River. The grounds are pleasant, forested and peaceful. All the employees we met were super friendly and accommodating. We were pleased to note that an even newer building had numerous... More

At first we had a room by the Columbia River. The room was extremely dated and had a smell to it. The window was open to air it out. We just didn't like the room and thought we would just leave even though we paid for the night. We asked about an upgrade. The staff was very nice and upgraded... More

Thanks much for your review, glad you enjoyed the Jacuzzi Suite! I'll take a look at that room and fix anything that may be amiss. We do have some more improvements on the way as well, so things will just keep getting better and better. Thanks again! More

We have stayed here twice. The river view rooms are really worth it. The master bedroom/sitting area is quite large and has windows the entire length of the room. There is a fireplace, couch, chair, refrigerator, desk, wine glasses and opener. There is a second bedroom we use for our suitcases. There are doggy pick up bags and trash cans... More

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed your Suite! We're going to keep updating out furniture as well. It's all locally made and hardwood; no particle board. Thanks again and see you next time! More

I stayed in one of the newer buildings. My room was large and clean, but it was somewhat sterile and lacked historic character. The beds were nice but not amazing. For a new building, they lacked sufficient outlets for my technology. The bathroom was huge with two spouts for the shower (the overhead one was great).

Thanks for your review! We're working on getting some local art for our rooms, especially the building you were in. We'll get some more character into that building as well; it's one of those things that takes a little time to do the right way. Thanks again! More

Liked it so much we came back 2 days later. Independent, family-owned motel. People are SWEET, friendly and kind. The cheapest rooms are near the highway but for a few dollars more you can get a much quieter room. The best ones have great views. Dog friendly with lovely places to play and romp. Highly recommended!

Thanks much, glad you enjoyed your visit! We're building more open spaces and features around the grounds as well, so there will always be plenty of spots to play and romp; It's what we've done since my grandparents built our original building in '54. Thanks again! More

Spent two nights at the Vagabond Lodge in May 2015. We requested a room with a river view but that was not available so we stayed in the newest building on the property. The rooms are in beautiful, new condition and considerably larger than a typical hotel room. Super clean. Very comfortable bed. Nice patio or balcony and plenty of... More

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed our Courtyard building! We have a few more plans for our Courtyard area, so the view of the grounds from that building will be even better. And of course the view of the river from the back of our property is nice and close as well. Thanks again! More

We stayed at the Vagabond four nights while visiting in the Columbia River area. This place was wonderful. We had a large suite for the three of us, it was well located for our needs. Beautifully landscaped, with lots of friendly Stellar jays, a few house cats, and the occasional eagle fly by to keep us entertained. Would definitely stay... More

Best value in the Columbia gorge, hands down! We have stayed here a few times and and the rooms have been extremely clean. They also have very friendly staff and the lodge is located on beautiful property. We asked to be in the newer building so I could have a bathtub, the upgrade price was definitely worth it.
