Excellent staff. I would recommend this summer or winter for budget conscious travelers. I got a river view room but next door they had a family room with fireplace. This lodging was on a show called hotel impossible. Great revamp. Owned by the same family for generations!

If you are in Hood River, this is the place to stay. The rooms are spacious, well kept, and fully equipped. The staff is super friendly as well. The best part is the price. By far the best deal in town. I would suggest the courtyard view room. I usually prefer a river view, but I found these to be... More

My boyfriend and I went here for 2 nights on Jan. 1st through the 3rd. We got the river view room with a fireplace. First off, the price is AMAZING. This hotel is much cheaper than others in the area, especially for having a room with a beautiful river view and a fireplace. It was very clean, came with a... More

Came upon the Vagabond almost by accident, but what a treat! Huge fireplace suite at about half the price of its more elegant and more famous neighbor. No, the Vagabound is not for you if you want elegance. But what a deal! They sell very affordable daily and 3 day passes to Mt Hood Meadows. High funk factor, so it... More

Living in Idaho with our son in Oregon, we travel the gorge often but seldom have an opportunity to stay the night. For once, we stopped over in our most favorite town and chose the Vagabond for 4 reasons: proximity to the gorge, price, view, and ambiance. We arrived by 2 pm after hiking Multnomah Falls and walking over the... More

The lodge was reasonably cheap and close to my destinations. However, it was quite dated. Their new additional unit may be finished now and should be much better (ask for a new room if you go). For a few extra dollars I would strongly suggest looking into the hotel right next door (the Columbia gorge hotel). Their grounds were spectacularly... More

My wife and I are self employed, which means we get to decide which 80+ hours a week to work. A few times a year, we need a few days off, away from the office to just unwind without spending a small fortune. Vagabond Lodge is one of those places for us. We have stayed there several times for 2-3... More

We stayed only one Sunday night in December, just passing through town, but plan to return to Hood River, and stay at the Vagabond Lodge again. We had a very comfortable large room with all the usual amenities (coffee, microwave, fridge), great king size bed, table & chairs, real glasses (H20 & wine :-), and there is some outdoor space...

I once read an article about how when Nathan's Hot Dog stand first opened in Coney Island, nobody wanted to eat their hot dogs, and when they questioned why not they found out it was because they were so inexpensive people got suspicious that something was wrong with them. This place was like that for me. Great reviews, but it's... More
