My family and I went to the "Apple Fest", in Hood River. We chose the Vagabond from reviews that I read. It is wonderful. The location is right along the Columbia and the views all around, are breathtaking. Get a room with a view, its worth waking up and seeing the river when you open the curtains. The rooms are...

Stayed at Vagabond in May 2014 en route to California with sister and my toddler son. First off found it really hard to both get the website working and to actually get ahold of the front desk. So that was the only issue. When we stayed there the room was nice enough and what I expected as definitely one of... More

This is an older hotel but kept clean with modern amenities. It overlooks the river and the property is beautiful. Yes, there are newer, nicer places but this one has every thing you need and has heart!

Thanks for your review! We'll keep updating things in all our rooms as we can; we like to have unique features our guests wouldn't find in a chain or "box" hotel. Thanks again! More

Hi we recently stayed for one night at the Vagabond. It was a great value for the money we spent. The room was clean, we loved having the table and chairs within the room to enjoy an evening glass of wine at. The Inn was very quiet and we had a great sleep. For dinner we walked over the the...

We stayed in the new addition. Rooms were spacious, clean, nice TV, nice bathroom. Very good for price. Only downside was truck traffic on I-84 gets going early and can make it hard to sleep late if you are a light sleeper.

Thanks for your review, sorry those trucks on the freeway were on the louder side that morning. We are seeing if there's anything ODOT can do to help mitigate that as well. Glad you enjoyed visiting us, thanks again! More

The most comfortable hotel I've stayed at in a long time. Old school quality with a real tiled shower, amazingly comfortable pillowtop mattress, and a view of the gorge that was breathtaking. It was quiet, clean, and peaceful. We are staying there again soon.

Older hotel but nice. We stayed at one of the rooms with a view. Nice staff. Would be a 5 but good use a little updating. What was really nice was waking up in the morning and going to the balcony and having a cup of coffee. We really enjoyed the stay! !!

My family and I stay at this family-owned property whenever we visit Hood River, and we always enjoy our stay (we've been four times now). The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and we always request the river view so we can enjoy the spectacular scenery. They do a magnificent job preserving the natural feel of the property, and... More

On a local recommendation, we stayed for one night here. We were very happy as the room was very nice and clean. There was a balcony and huge picture window that you could watch the Columbia River go by. A bald eagle was a pleasant sight as well as a number of geese.

Thanks much for your review, glad you heard about us from a neighbor! The eagles have a nest just down the cliff from us, so it's always nice to see them soar by. Thanks again! More
