I like old hotels and their charm and this was a nice place that was clean and very well located for a wedding 5 minutes away. However, I got barely any sleep on the night we stayed there due to the noise of the freeway. In addition, they have very poor choice of blinds and they let the light also... More

If you want hotel employees to steal from you and then the management not care, then the Columbia Gorge Hotel is the place for you! I stayed here for a wedding in August 2014 and had my laptop bag with $1500+ in it stolen from the grounds. My wallet, keys, computer, hotspot, and even a pair of shoes disappeared and,... More

This is an old hotel so if you like small rooms, dark hallways and old furniture then this is your place. We stayed in a "garden view room" which really meant parking lot. Also meant facing the interstate highway which was very noisy at times. Single pane windows didn't help. The windows had cheap white vinyl horizontal blinds. They did... More

This historic hotel, dating to the early 20th century, sits on one of the most beautiful sites along the Columbia River. On a sunny day--which we had--the river quickly fills with sail boats and people engaging in various forms of wind-surfing. Hood River likes to call itself the "wind-surfing capital," and certainly it draws many from near and far. But... More

The hotel is high above the Columbia River, with lovely gardens. It is windy, windy, windy there so be prepared! We visited in late summer and had perfect warm, sunny weather. It is set away from the shops and restaurants of Hood River so is quiet (the shops are a very short drive away). The hotel itself is historic, and... More

We did not stay at the hotel but visited for lunch so I can't rate the hotel itself, only the restaurant. The food and service were good and the prices moderate. Our waitress (Erica, I believe) was great and gave us a lot of the history of the hotel along with our food. Apparently this was a frequent destination for... More

Columbia Gorge Hotel is a historic and charming place to stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. The grounds are well kept and beautiful. The rooms are comfortable and the restaurant has excellent food and service. It is a lovely spot overlooking the River; an ideal place for a wedding or anniversary.

Way to expensive for what we received. Room was very small. We had a wonderful view but the windows were dirty. Spiders and cobwebs all over the exterior of the building and windows. We even had spiders and cobwebs in the corners of the bathroom above the shower. Could be such a wonderful place if only they would power wash.

This is a historic hotel. The owners have done an excellent job of updating and maintaining it. The hotel has a lot of charm, and the staff is very helpful. You have to "ring" for the elevator, but they are very prompt. We stayed in a river view room, and the view was wonderful. As noted in other reviews, the... More
