Got into The Dalles at dusk. Saw this place from the freeway and was disappointed. It was a MOTEL!! And it looked iffy. I was tired of driving. Had reservations that I made after reading Trip Advisor reviews. Decided I would try it. GLAD I did!! I was greeted warmly to this outwardly dated motel. The lobby was inviting. A... More

This is a super cute little roadside motel remodeled into an updated and comfortable place to spend the night. The rooms were very clean, windows opened to let in fresh air, beds were comfortable with nice linens. For certain we will stay there again when traveling thru.

If you are looking for a place in the Dalles to stay with the same amenities and quality rooms as a Hilton or Holiday Inn express, look no further. The Celilo inn is the mainstay of all the hotel's emphasizing on the history of this area. At the continental breakfast, I met a friendly lady named Paula who works at... More

I have stayed here on multiple occasions for work. Great experience overall with clean updated rooms. The views from my room were amazing. Paula is great and I would recommend others to stay here. My furry friends can also stay.

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They offer you a glass of wine on check in. I do not drink wine but thought this was a very nice gesture. The room was great, very clean and had comfortable beds. The room was very quiet. Our room had a very nice view of the Columbia River. Do not be put... More

My wife and I decided we were too tired to drive much further and found this gem. Paula was extremely kind and helpful in getting us our room. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

This tastefully remodeled 1950s motor motel sits up on the ridge above the dam in The Dalles where Celilo Falls used to be. The hotel was clean and the staff very helpful. My favorite feature was the included and delicious 24-hour Stumptown coffee in the lobby. We would definitely stay here again. The view of the Columbia River and Mt.... More

We travel to The Dalles from Portland every few weeks for wine tasting. We used to jump around hotels but finally landed here. The beds are the most comfortable in town. Rooms are clean and modern. The fire pit is a great place to sip wine and meet new friends. Definitely recommend!

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.
