A co worker clued me into this hideaway. Yes it has a good view, the bed was great, the room spotless, bathroom/shower good. Parking may be tough for a Ford pickup due to turn around space, but its manageable. The staff was attentive and polite! I arrived late but it was not a problem, and yes, its a quiet spot.... More

Great little inn, comfortable rooms, good beds, rooms look just as advertised. Evening front desk staff provided excellent service, glass of great quality wine locally brewed was offered. Beautiful view of the Columbia river Gorge and Mount hood in the distance. Awesome outdoor patio with fireplace, for evening relaxing. Heated pool with change area, on site laundry facilities. Value price... More

I recently came to The Dalles for a business meeting and tried out Celilio Inn. What a wonderful place. The recent remodel made the room clean and comfortable and the hotel check in staff was a real pleasure to deal with. They were friendly and wanted to do their best to make our stay a comfortable one. Who doesn't want... More

We were en route from Portland to remote eastern Oregon and stayed here on a pretty summer night. I was impressed with the remodel they've done on what was probably a pretty standard motel. The staff folks were so awesome. Really friendly -- gave us great advice on wineries to visit that afternoon.

This place is a remodeled version of an old motel perched on top on a hill overlooking the dam at The Dalles. It's located on the "wrong" side of the highway overpass; that is, on the east side away from the city center. When I entered the access road off of Highway 30, I felt like I was in some... More

I needed to meet some family in the Dalles or Hood River, but have grown weary of the chain hotels with the boring rooms and average customer experience. The reviews for the Celilo Inn on this site and others gave me great hope. I was not disappointed. First, many have commented on the size of the rooms. Keep in mind... More

We've stayed here twice now. It is perched up above the Columbia River near The Dalles dam. The view is beautiful, especially at sunset. The motel was completely redone in a clean, modern style. The beds and linens are very good and there has been no smell of cleaning products. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They offer complimentary... More

We were glad to have found the Celilo Inn, since we couldn’t find any other nice accommodation in The Dalles. Celilo Inn is a little out of the way, east of The Dalles, and it has great views of the dam and the river. It’s a waste not to take a room with a view, it’s nice in daylight and... More

Rented 4 rooms for my family the day before my daughter's wedding rehearsal and wedding in Parkdale, Or. It was a very comfortable stay and experience. The rooms are clean and look like they have been recently renovated. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating to any special requests or needs. I highly recommend this Inn to stay at...

When you pull up to the Inn you get a little nervous at some of the neighbors unique decorating styles and I suspect if I was just pulling over without researching the place I might have turned back before reaching it. But once you get to the Inn it is quite lovely and you look out over the top of... More
