We stayed there one night on our way north. Loved the location! The staff were friendly and professional, the rooms clean and spacious and they were able to accommodate us with a disability room. There is a paved pathway in front of the hotel which leads along the waterfront for a short, enjoyable stroll. Not much else to see, though.... More

This motel is for golfers at Gamble Sands, hunters, fisherman and winter sports enthusiast. For the town itself, which you can walk in five minutes, it's a bit over priced. The rooms are large and new and nice. The breakfast is very basic: fruit plate, two cereals, granola, basic small cinnamon rolls, bagels, coffee and tea. It was sort of... More

One, we do not allow smoking, It is difficult to control outside, I am sorry for you being exposed to cigarette smoke. We will put a sign up in the lobby regarding where the juice can be found.

This is the type of hotel you would expect to find at any major travel destination. It was first class all the way. From comfortable beds, quality linens, high end toiletries, even a fireplace, this place was great. This place is almost too nice to be in Pateros.. LOL This is a newer hotel and they did everything right in... More

We stayed here on a whim and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The outside of the building has some mildew/dark spots type areas and just didn't look very clean. I was hesitant to go inside....wow...I was wrong. Nice clean entry and updated interior with a fabulous view of the Columbia. The reception staff was amazing and friendly... More

I was surprised to find a higher end hotel in such a small town. I was expecting to find a mom and pop motel type but it was more like a Best Western. Clean rooms, many amenities and a beautiful setting on the Columbia River. Extremely friendly and helpful front counter staff - there was a problem with the internet... More

We had a previous issue with this hotel, but they made up for it with class! This time our stay was very comfortable and the room was great. The hotel staff were quite accommodating of our needs. We ate dinner at the adjoining restaurant where our meal was great and the atmosphere was very nice too. A definite repeat spot... More
