This is a lovely, quiet hotel with a fantastic view of the Columbia to wake up to! Very pleasant rooms with fireplace, very clean. Check in and out were speedy and courteous and the restaurant next door is handy and good!

Found this superb inn on an extended drive through the US. One of the best places I stayed and I still think about the view and how warm and cosy it was. Reasonable price, friendly staff and good food in the restaurant. Shame it's such a long drive to get there!

A very pleasant stay. Easy access in and out, with a top quality restaurant next door. Rooms are exceptionally nice, and have several electrical receptacles at desk, table and counter levels, for easily charging the usual array of electronic/electrical gadgets travelers utilize today. No need to move furniture, unplug hair dryers or microwaves, etc. to charge a phone, or use... More

Arrived in the evening. When I walked into my room - fireplace and music was on to greet me to what was a beautiful room with an incredible view. Clean, comfortable and functional, the room was excellent. The complementary breakfast included assorted fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, and packages muffins & Danishes. I enjoyed my stay and will stay here... More

A large group of us (Puget Sound MINI Motoring Club) checked in quite late on a Saturday night and the check in went flawlessly. The room clerk did an excellent job checking us all in in a timely manner. I believe we had 20 rooms. Our room had an outstanding view of the lake. It was quite and well kept,... More

Hotel is fine but here are my complaints: Very unhelpful staff and unreliable pricing. They are playing you to the hilt, one moment it's this price, next moment another. Once they got your money, no more interest to please. Up the street is another small motel with extremely friendly owners, half the price, directly on lake shore. Waste you money... More

Stayed here as part of a golf stay & play package. Room was clean, very comfortable with a refrigerator & microwave. Large bathroom with shower only, which we prefer over a bathtub. All rooms face the water, and it was lovely to sit on the balcony, look out onto the water & see fish jump out off the water. That... More

First, the room and hotel are very clean and modern. Nice little kitchen counter area with microwave and sink. The free, Continental breakfast is quite nice, with a few extras that are nice touches. The view is great off of your balcony. The only problem with hanging out on the balcony are those annoying air cannons in the distant orchards.... More

Terrible customer focus. We booked over the phone, received an email confirmation, drove to the hotel and were informed on arrival there was no more reservation for us and no room left in the hotel. Upon further investigation, it turned out that an employee of the hotel had cancelled our reservation the morning we were to arrive and didn't inform... More
