Hotel Cathlamet is amazing! It would be the perfect backdrop for a movie even. The lobby is so classic with the options of the staircase or the elevator to get up into the Hotel. I chose the staircase when I first started unloading my car. I had chosen room 212 which is a Suite with separate living room with flat... More

Cathlamet is my hometown but I hadn't been here in 30 years. I chose this hotel because I remembered my grandfather staying here when I was a child. It has been beautifully renovated and I had a nice room overlooking the Columbia River. The owners were very accommodating and showed the same type of hospitality that you can find all... More

Cathlamet is a very small but charming town...not a booming metropolis, so we were not expecting 5 star service or amenities but that is what we got! Nice rooms, historic but updated decor, great friendly service, even an early check-in (because we planned ahead and asked for it.) I stayed here with my very large family... six siblings and our...

What a great location for a retreat! Our foundation found the location and local folks exactly what we were looking for with our friends in Wahkiaum County. A comfortable and delightful place. Room 222

The Hotel Cathlamet can be your home away from home. It's right there on main street with a diner, a Mexican restaurant, a grocery story and a drug store within the same block and the marina is just a few blocks away. The rooms are small and tidy. Everything is very, very clean. The generous shared areas are something you... More

Thank you for the kind review...we do try hard :-) A small side note...the bistro downstairs closed Sept. 21st so we have gone back to providing a continental breakfast in the dining/kitchen area. I hope we'll see you as guests again in the future! More

My team & I stayed at the hotel while we were in town; we found the hotel to be quite charming and wonderfully restored to give it a feel of stepping back in time with todays luxuries. As you walk into the main foyer, you instantly get the sense of walking into a piece of American history with wonderful architecture.... More

Thanks for the review! You did miss the coffee...we had a non compete with the bistro so couldn't provide any while they were open. The bistro closed Sept. 21st so we have gone back to providing continental breakfast and there is coffee served any time of day you would like! I hope we'll see you again soon on another business...

You can stay at "cookie cutter" hotels anytime. However, there is certain character you get only at older hotels which, while appropriately updated and maintained, have managed to preserve their original class and charm. Hotel Cathlamet is one of those.

I stayed here for two nights to attend a surprise 50th wedding anniversary party. The hotel occupies the second floor of an older building in downtown Cathlamet. Although my room was small, everything was clean, updated, reasonably priced and very charming. Across the street is a Mexican restaurant where I had a very nice meal. A paved trail leads to...

We had a family reunion in Cathlamet and the owners/staff at the hotel couldn't have been more accommodating. The rooms are clean and have the basics. It is just what they advertise. We had a great time and hope you will too.

Thank you for your review! We love family reunions at Hotel Cathlamet. One little clarification...the interior rooms do have windows, but they open and look out into a sunroom/atrium so you don't get a ton a fresh air through them. We hope to see you again as our guest! More

I've stayed at the Hotel Cathlamet a couple of times for work (we have a field site in the area) and was pleasantly surprised by how nice it is. They've done a good job of renovating the hotel and maintaining the historical charm while also providing modern amenities and style. I've only stayed in the single room, but it was... More
