Stopped for lunch while on a day trip of the Columbia Gorge. Great looking place, high on a cliff with good views. Has its own waterfall! The Steelhead Salmon sandwich was really good and service was prompt and friendly. Might be a nice place to stay overnight.

I have to say, we've stayed in many fine hotels and we really liked this one. I would say it is similar, but on a much smaller scale to the Fairmont Empress in Victoria, BC. It is a historic property, so don't expect modern decor and furnishings, the history is what gives it charm and grace. Think, antique furnishings, old... More

Wow! Sunseeker 1973, I appreciate your kind review, but also relies we still have lots of work to do before this charming historic building can reach it full potential. With the ownership change that happened last month we here have high hope for the future of this building. More

…and it has aged since we were here. The history is great, with its vintage elevator and fascinating photos of days past. The rooms are tiny in these old inns, with no drawer space, but they did supply two comfortable chairs in our room and two luggage racks! That's rare. The waiter for our first night dinner was a loser,... More

Hi Carolyn S, I see that you are from just up the hill from my home town. Sorry that your waiter wasn't more in tune to your needs. I have talked with him about your review and if he didn't fill bad about the service he provided you, he certainly dose now! We hope you give us a second chance... More

The registration area and the salon are all refurbished with period light fixtures and furniture. The stairs creak a little, also true with the hallways and the floors in the rooms; not a surprise since this is an historic hotel. The bathroom was compact, but functional; the closet much larger than anticipated (and included a refrigerator). The views from the... More

Thanks Shirley, Some times with the wind in the Gorge keeping the trash picked up around the property can be challenging. Thanks for helping too keep us on our toes as some times we get complacent with our daily course and don't always see what our guest see. More

After a drive through the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, we arrived at a very special place for our evening. This is a historic hotel with a fantastic location. There are many beautiful sights on the Columbia River with the waterfalls and the views. This hotel provides another one. Beautiful location, fantastic food, and a small exercise room. It was just...

This is a truly beautiful, well appointed hotel. We were fortunate to say for two nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We arrived at 10 am from our last stop, way before check-in. They were kind enough to store our bags so that we could explore the Columbia River Gorge. The hotel is built on a bluff and... More

As someone who loves history and old historic buildings, I couldn't pass up another opportunity to stay at the Columbia Gorge Hotel. This was my 3rd stay and I still love It! A lot of its charm, beside the building and location, is the staff. Especially want to thank John, Carlos, Kelly, and the manager for making our stay so... More

stayed for one night 11th August 2015. Staff were very friendly and courteous. Room was comfortable and air conditioned. Meal was very nice. Older hotel but has a lot of charm. Would stay again. Room had a great view of the river. The grounds are well worth a walk around as well.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We stayed in one of the river side rooms. The bathrooms are clean and bedrooms very comfortable. The hotel is old but that is part of its charm.

The service at this hotel is exceptional as is the food. I highly recommend the smoked salmon eggs benedict and the strawberry rhubarb cobbler. Very charming building in a beautiful location. Plenty to do nearby--hiking, shopping, rafting, beer and wine tasting.
