We were thrilled to see that Celilo offered a couple bikes for guests to ride. We took a bike ride to Sunshine Mill Winery and it was quite nice. We've enjoyed our stay so far at this quaint hotel. Just missing a hot tub...other than that, this place is wonderful.

The motel perched on the south side of the gorge offers a wonderful view of the columbia river where at the Dalles Dam. The motel has been recently renovated, so the lobby, rooms, and parking area look brand new. The room as quite large with large picture windows looking out on the dam. Quite nice. It is a relatively quiet... More

Overall worth it for the quietness and off the main highway. If you stay in the upper building and there hasn't been a lot of other guests let the hot water run about ten minutes on the bathroom tap, then you can take a shower. Their breakfast could use a couple more offerings but still it's a lot better than... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night on our way to Portland, and we absolutely loved it. Rooms are the perfect size for a 1-3 night stay, and the entire hotel is remodeled and new-looking. Very cheap (95/night) for the quality your getting. I've stayed in multiple Dalles hotels, and this is by far the best.

We spent one night and were truly impressed. Very clean and big rooms. Got a free glass of wine and continental breakfast. Will stay again next time we hit Maryhill Winery. Didn't get a chance to swim in the pool but it looked welcoming.

This hotel is wonderful. Clean. Neat. and the staff is great. Even a free glass of wine on arrival. The free breakfast was great. This was just a stop off on the way to Central Oregon, but it was well worth it.

This inn is a pleasant surprise. The Dalles was the starting point of our Columbia Gorge trip. Gunner at the front desk was knowledgeable about historical sites and was helpful with dining recommendations. The rooms are modern, clean and comfy with views of The Dalles dam. A memorable stay.

Ok, need a place to stay in The Dalles? This is as good as it gets for a pretty convenient, very comfortable, nicely appointed stay. Yes, it is a little ways out of town and a bit tricky to find the first time. Once you are there, it is quite simple to locate. Do a map search on line to... More

We stayed one night as part of a road trip around Oregon. We had some difficulty finding the hotel, as the steep slope was messing with our GPS unit. We were surprised by how industrial the area looked, and the little 'village' directly below kind of on the driveway. It was generally a bit of a weird setup for a... More

This was a real surprise to me and my husband. We did not plan on spending the night in The Dalles... We were meant to go straight to Portland but the driving conditions being pretty bad, we decided to find an reasonable hotel on the way. The Celilo Inn was the most reasonable one and we decided to try it... More
