The hotel is a little dated with slightly run down but clean rooms. However, the views from the units that were on the river were awesome. It was nice to just sit in the room and enjoy the view. Again the site was a little older but the landscaping was well kept and blooming. It was a nice change from... More

The staff took special care to help with an unusal request, no one else in town was so offering to be so accommodating! The room was quiet, cozy, clean comfortable! The grounds are well kept and the view awesome. Will definitely visit again

We saw a show about this hotel on TV. We had been wanting to take the Mt. Hood Train ride so thought we could combine the two. Since we booked at the last minute the only room available was a suite at the back of the property. It had a bed in the living room and a second bedroom, a... More

I first stayed here in 1962 en-route to the Seattle World's Fair, and have returned at least 5 more times including the present. Many newer rooms, which we had this time, though no view of the river. No breakfast, but a rather good family restaurant next door, and an historic Hotel and Fine Dining on the other side.

Thanks much for visiting us over the years! We'll keep making more improvements around the grounds as well, so all our guests can comfortably enjoy the view of the river. Thanks again! More

Okay! This review is going to be super thorough because I could not find any other reviews on their glamping rooms on TripAdvisor, yelp, Wanderlust, or their website! Glamping is as the word suggests - glamorous camping. My partner and I usually go for real camping, but wanted a treat. This was definitely a treat! It was totally awesome. The... More

Thanks for your review, very thorough! We opened the tents a few days ago, so that's why the aren't many reviews regarding them yet. They are also only available in the summer, so it's also a limited time guests can enjoy them. Thanks for bringing a few things up for me, I'll have those squared away shortly (and there's trash...

Hood River is our go-to weekend destination, and we have stayed at the Vagabond Lodge about 5 times. The rooms are well appointed, clean, quiet, and comfortable. As we have 3 small children, we stay in a suite overlooking the river. LOVE the separate bedroom for the kids, the awesome balcony, the great in room amenities (my wife especially likes... More

What a treat to discover the Vagabond Lodge. We knew we were in for something special when two days before our reservation we received a call from the Lodge asking if we had any special needs they could take care of! We said a pillow that was firm would be great and sure enough when we arrived we had firm... More

Thanks very much for your review, glad you had a wonderful time! There's a lot we do here that has carried through the years from when my grandparents started the hotel, and some new great things we've added. I'll get some more cedar like those planter boxes you saw and build some more picnic tables and Adirondack chairs for everyone... More

We stayed here late one night and leaving early on a business trip. We stayed in a non view room (which we accepted for the price of $85) and in the older section of the hotel. The rug definitely could use a makeover, but the room was very clean and had everything you would want or need. It had a... More

Thanks much for your review! Yes, our Classic rooms get some road noise because they're closest to the road. We Also have earplugs available, just in case anyone needs some or forgets theirs at home. We'll be making even more improvements around the grounds and in the rooms as well. Thanks again! More

Views are fabulous from the comfy rooms. Little dated but clean. Landscaping was under construction but still enjoyable. Next time will take advantage of fire pit area. Appreciated having the large fridge and table space for our breakfasts and snacks.

Thanks for your review! We've got our grounds projects for this year about done, so it'll be great to watch all the flowers fill in as the season goes by. The fire pit will be ready and waiting for you next time you visit! Thanks again. More
