Many thanks to Chris and his staff for ensuring that our visit was as comfortable as possible. Our room was even nicer than expected and we really enjoyed the pool & fitness room. Great amenities overall, we look forward to staying here again!

We spent one night in this hotel. The room was large and comfortable. The Wi-Fi was very good which was important to one of us who needed to work for a little while. The front desk was able to give us a map of The Dalles and make several restaurant recommendations. They also give you a wine passport and some... More

I selected the Celilo Inn as a half-way point to stay to avoid a long early morning drive to Hermiston from the Portland area. Very nice and helpful staff, and the rooms newly remodeled and quite lovely. Was pleased with the complimentary breakfast...comprehensive selections. My only complaint was with the shower. The water pressure was VERY low and the temperature... More

Located high on a hill overlooking the Columbia River, this hotel was originally built in the 50s and has been given a hip update. The rooms are small, but stylish, and the staff are friendly. Breakfast was OK. Located a few miles east of town, you reach the hotel by climbing a hill and driving past some sad homes that... More

We were referred to the Celilo Inn by another hotel and we were so glad. From the outside, the hotel looks like 1950s style motel. But the rooms have been beautifully appointed, nice decor, and a wonderful bed. Nice view of the Dalles Dam. It was very hot when we stayed and the A/C In our room worked beautifully. Glad... More

We stopped here on our way to Montana. The motel is very comfortable with a great view of the Dalles Dam and the Columbia River. Service is excellent and they have live music on Friday evening outside on the patio during a complimentary wine social hour. The location is perfect for exploring the area. The motel staff and inn keepers... More

We stayed one night. This property was extremely clean, the king bed comfortable. The "get going" breakfast had fresh fruit, cereals, juices, hard boiled eggs, bagels, English muffins, etc and it was nicely presented. The view was magnificent! Negative: The air conditioner is very noisy.

I'm local and booked this "boutique" motel for my parents visit. I wanted to pay for the room and not have my parents worry about anything. I booked online, and left a online message that I was paying for the room and not to ask them for any money or let them know what I paid. When I got to... More
