We stayed in the dog friendly building on the river. The room was big with a nice porch and view. The front desk and the cleaners were friendly. The white buffalo cafe in front of the hotel property was handy for a glass of wine and a snack. They do takeout too.

Thanks for your review! We always welcome our little furry buddies, a lot of them like to relax on the balcony and watch the birds fly by on sunny days. Thanks again! More

The first Pro is the location......in the summer months the downtown area of Hood River can get crowded and noisy. This place is far from the crowds. Second Pro is the place has been updated, a very good improvement over prior stays. Third Pro is the price, I feel that it is the best value in town.

Thanks for your review! Yes, Hood River is very busy in the summer. It's nice to have a little spot just a short distance from downtown that feels like it's away from everything to simply enjoy and relax. We'll keep making improvements and updates as well, thanks again! More

We stayed in the Vagabond Lodge in mid-October as an opportunity to recover from the death of my mother-in-law and all the work of planning a memorial, etc. It was a wonderful place to stay. We had a large room with a great view of the river. It was very quiet and very clean. The beds are quite comfortable. The... More

Thanks for your review! The falls makes for some great hikes, especially in spring when they're full from rain and the wildflowers are blooming. Walking to Triple Falls is a nice little couple-mile hike, with the trailhead at Horsetail Falls; I recommend it. Thanks again! More

I stayed in a newer room overlooking the courtyard. It was clean, spacious and had all the amenities I needed. The staff was very friendly and recommended places for dinner and breakfast and were right on the mark.

I meant to write a review sooner... We stayed here before the TV show Hotel Impossible came featured them on one of their episodes. In fact we stayed in the same room they had on the show.

Thanks for your review, glad you liked the improvements we've been making! One of the most humbling experiences I ever had was when Anthony and the crew were here, and the first thing he told me was that he has never seen a nicer 3-star hotel. That's a huge compliment and testament to the wonderful people I get to work... More

We spent the thanksgiving weekend. It was rainy but since the Grant accommodated our requests we were able to have a wonderful stay. We booked through booking.com and were shocked to find a day before travel that Vagabond had never received our request. Grant was kind enough to arrange our reservations and honored the rates that were quoted by booking.com.... More

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

Thanks much for your review, glad you enjoy our new rooms! We're going to keep making more improvements as well, so there will be even more to enjoy next visit. We're going to wrap that amphitheater around the slope as well, so everyone can sit and enjoy with river together with family, a picnic, or a book. Thanks again! More
