Though it was not right off the highway, it was a nice & economically option. Friendly group of folks providing a good night stay with comfortable beds. BTW they do offer a glass of wine after checking in, much appreciated after hours of driving! :) Thanks!

We stayed for one night in the Celilo Inn. We came from Washington State and traveled towards Portland via the Historic Columbia River Highway the next day. The motel is modern, clean and not expensive. The staff at the front desk is very friendly and helpful. There are many recommendations for restaurants, wine bars and other things to do. The... More

The last time we reviewed this motel was 3 years ago. It was clean, friendly and comfortable then as it still is. This is our 3rd review since they opened. We traveled for Thanksgiving to my home town, taking with us, my service dog. Our room was a regular king, pet room. It was perfect for us. My husband signed... More

The local know this place as "Eddies"— its former name— a mid-century motel high on a hill overlooking The Dalles Dam and the Columbia. Over the past two years we have stay at the Celilo Inn about 12 times, and maybe 36 days total. The Celilo is a very fun place to stay. The recent remodel has kept everything cool... More

Unusual locale for a hotel, but has sweeping views of the industrial gorge. Stayed in larger king room, and felt it was big enough for 2 plus lots of belongings. The staff were great with restaurant recommendations and gave us coupons which we happily used. Everyone was friendly without being fake, which created a welcoming atmosphere. it is obvious customer... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night. We thoroughly enjoyed this motel!!!! Very modern, clean and well equipped. Talk about room with a view also! We checked in with Gunner who was really friendly and helpful. I had trouble working the washing machine, which we put down to the pipes being frozen. Gunner came out in the cold... More

This is my second stay at the property within the past couple of months. My first visit I opted for a queen size bed and my review centered around the smallness of the accommodation. This time I went with a king size bed and the room was very large and comfortable. We both liked the room and the amenities. The... More

This was a last minute reservation and far exceeded our expectations. Better customer service than many much higher priced places we've stayed. The complimentary glass of a good local wine, excellent suggestions on where to eat and take walks, and complimentary breakfast made a great impression. There was live music on the patio the evening we were there and it... More

What a great motel! From the welcoming glass of wine to the nicely decorated room, this was a very pleasant place to stay. The bed was comfortable, the heater worked, the complimentary breakfast was excellent and the staff was gracious (and even offered great recommendations for dinner and drinks). This Motel outclasses the competition.
