We were planning on staying in The Dalles so I checked the reviews on Trip Advisor and the Celilo Inn had very positive reviews. The outside was a little concerning but looked at the interior photos, and they were very positive so we booked 2 nights in the Ceilio Inn. We ended up staying 3 nights. We had a two... More

What a hidden gem, up above I-84. Definitely recommended! Pool is wonderful, view of the dam is awesome. Glass of wine upon check-in is a sweet touch! Breakfast in the morning is icing on the cake! You need to go!

After driving all day we were looking forward to a nice quite night in a comfortable room. The first hotel we went to had no vacancy and they recommended Celilo Inn, we checked our GPS and drove to it. Felt as though we had driven in the back route and missed the front entrance, but in the morning I realized... More

We would have never found this place if it wasn't recommended by another hotel that was full. It was inconspicuous hotel that we would never noticed. What a great find. Rooms were small (cozy) but clean and nicely furnished. Bathroom clean with great shower pressure. Desk clerk was very friendly. Hotel was quiet and situated on a hill overlooking river... More

The motel was very hard to find at night. Do not rely on your GPS to find it. Better to call the motel for directions. The room was clean and some, but not all, of the rooms had nice views of the Columbia River and The Dalles. I was going to give it a 4 star rating but changed it... More

The title just about sums it up. The room was clean and modern. I had a king room that appeared to be recently renovated. It was a bit small for an extended stay but large enough for an overnight or two day stay. The people at the office/breakfast room were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the complementary glass of... More

Just what one often hopes for but rarely find. Competitors could learn valuable lessons from this motel. Excellent value. Very clean and modern. Outstanding views. Adequate breakfast and even a complimentary glass of wine on arrival. Family owned and run.

We made a reservation here based on other reviews and were very pleased we did. Granted, the drive up to the place had us wondering--the little houses on the approach road are a bit ramshackle, to say the least. But Celilo Inn, with its pleasant terrace and big-windowed rooms, offers great views of the Gorge, and the rooms are decorated... More

What a great surprise. It is located on the hillside looking down on the Columbia River. It is a old style motel...but with a great upgrade and wonderful place to stay. It was a wonderful surprise and we will be going back. The hotel was very clean and very new feeling. Drive up to your room and unpack. Great outdoor... More

Having stayed in many motel rooms over the years, I have never seen such a nice room in such a small town. You usually find ran down smelly sh@$ holes that smell like dollar store lysol. The attention to detail and cleanliness were as good as any downtown hotel in San Francisco or the like. And the night staff (Chris)... More
