Everyone working here is great--desk people, housekeeping, GM. Breakfast is fine, though the staffer didn't know that there were also real-sized bagels to be served. Both days we only got the cheerio-sized minis. The view is great and location wonderful. Clean, smallish rooms. Nice shower. discount coupons for area restaurants.

Thank you for your nice comment for our staff and the General Manager. Let us know when you will be returning, so we can hide the small bagels from the breakfast set up. Look forward to your next visit. More

Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others. Chris was a welcoming and entertaining host. We were greeted with a complimentary glass of wine and a nice view from the patio. Room was a little on the small side but had all the amenities.

I have not actually stayed at Celilo Inn. I made a reservation to try out Celilo as I have been working in Dallesport. I came down with laryngitis and had to cancel. I was not able to give the 48 hours required notice. I did call 24 hours in advance. Celilo would not refund my money. I completely understand if... More

Your late cancellation charge was forwarded to management, who had tried to get in contact with you by phone. Seeing your comment, we will try to reach you through this communication. Thank you. More

This was my first overnight in The Dalles and this inn will be my choice on the next trip. Things I liked: 1) the view of the dam complex is fantastic both day and night, 2) the glass of wine after a day of driving was a really nice touch, and 3) the toilet is an ADA type; raised and... More

I agree with one of the other reviewers about not letting the road up to this great motel turn you off about staying here. We had a king room with a view and the view was great. The room was very clean and the bed was one of best we have slept on in a long time. The breakfast I... More

Thank you for the "off road" comment. The location was great when the property was developed back in the 50's, HWY 30 used to go right by it then. Come see us again! More

Don't let the road up to the Celilo Inn detour you from staying. After checking in we drove to the upper level and parked right in front of our door. The room was small but quite adequate and very clean. Four fluffy pillows, quality sheets and a comfortable bed. The amenities were nice and the view was spectacular. Staff was... More

Ok, this is going to be a long review, bare with me. On a family emergency trip across Oregon, I got on line to find a last minute room at the Dalles, I had seen all the great reviews of Celilo Inn, so was sure we would not get a room, we did not even try to call. We called... More

As a kid, I stayed in a lot of motels like this one back in the late 1950's, although this one is a lot nicer than they were in the 50's. My wife and I stayed here last October, while on a three week road trip through Washington and Oregon. It was our last night in the Columbia River Gorge.... More

We have driven through The Dalles for years, and have always noticed this hotel on the hill. So when we were going to dtop for the evening, my husband suggested the Celilo Inn...I wasn't sure, because it looked rather dated when we drove by. What a surprise I was in for. Yes, the outside is dated, but the inside is... More

I actually stayed here once back in 1991 when it was under a different owner and name. It has been redone in a classic style and is a wonderful property now. Great views of the community, the river and the dam.
