Stayed at this property in August 2014 during our tour of the Northwest. Its an aging but very nice hotel. The hotel itself is rather plain but has a great location overlooking the Columbia River and the grounds themselves are well maintained. Its about a 5 minute drive into town which has plenty to see and do including some very... More

We arrived during a 90+ degree hot spell. We were delighted that such a gorgeous hotel with a historical background was available. The staff are attentive, respectful, and friendly. The rooms, though modernized with up-to-date very nice bathrooms and air-conditioning, still maintain their historical flair. This is a great quick escape from Portland or Vancouver. We will definitely come again.

This is a slightly aged grand dame of a hotel in the fussy style fashionable in bygone eras. We had a lovely room on the top floor looking out over the Columbia River Gorge. Be advised the elevator is also from that bygone era and must be operated by a staff person. It gets your bags up and down with... More

My wife and I stayed at the Columbia Gorge Hotel when I returned to Oregon to attend my 55th high school reunion in Pendleton. We also stayed here five years ago. Both times we had a charming river view room on the highest floor. The hotel restaurant is top notch; we had breakfast and dinner there both times. The grounds... More

This hotel was a bit of a disappointment, although the grounds are really spectacular and the service was pretty good. The big deal to us is the elevator, which has to be operated by an attendant. Who does that?? The problem was finding an attendant to operate it, so we just lugged our stuff upstairs and of course downstairs because... More

LCnSac, I am sorry that the elevator was such a problem for you. We have Front Desk agents on staff 24/7 that can easily operate it for you and elevator call buttons on every floor. I do understand that not all people enjoy Classic hotels and prefer the newer box hotels. Thanks for your comments and hopefully we see you... More

This is a charming old hotel located right on the Columbia River. We had drinks (great happy hour prices) on the patio with a great view of the wind and kite surfers on the river. The rooms are clean, but pretty austere.

This hotel is about 100 years old, and beautifully kept up. The carpeting, draperies, walls, and furniture seemed appropriate to the period, if not original. The elevator had to be operated by the desk clerk, who told us to ring for her when it was time to check out. (We used the stairs the rest of the time.) There was... More

the staff were very pleasant, the room was clean and comfortable for a small space. The view from the outdoor terrace was beautiful. Only drawback was no air conditioning and we were there during a heat wave.

Thanks for your review Angie. That hundred plus degree weather provides a tough time here in the Pacific Northwest. Each of our rooms have heat pumps in them and all public spaces with central heat & air, but as you know a 100 year old building and 100 plus degree weather are hard on those poor units, that just cant...

I'll start off by saying how absolutely disgusted I am with the management at this establishment. I was visiting family in Hood River for lunch at this hotel.
