I searched around for the right combination of price and amenities in Columbia River Gorge lodging and chose this place. We took the highest priced room mainly to have space, our own hot tub and a kitchen. At $199 a night, a tad over my normal range, I would have noticed anything wrong. Found nothing. The room is a big... More

This motel seemed like a very good deal, especially compared to the 4-star Skamania Lodge just up the hill which costs more than 3x as much. The rooms were not fancy but clean. The ambiance was even a bit charming with the buildings built as log cabins. However, it all goes downhill as soon as you try to sleep. Trains... More

We were looking for a comfortable establishment, at a good price that would provide a safe and convenient base to explore both the WA and OR life along the Gorge. The Riverside Lodge was perfect. The Lodge is very well appointed with a cabin feel but no shortage of comfort. The tub has jacuzzi jets, the bed is quite comfortable,... More

Two couples spent one night at the lodge in early June. We each had booked rooms next to each other. We were greeted by the owner. Check in was a welcoming greeting and introduction to our rooms and how everything worked. we were provided with information on places to eat. The rooms were very clean and cozy. The kitchen was...

The Dog Lover's Companion to the Pacific Northwest highly recommends this lodge overlooking the Columbia River located at an expert-only launch site for windsurfers and kitesurfers. We studied the reviews at Trip Advisor and decided to go ahead with the one big cabin that sleeps 7 people -- rather than the smaller cabins with full size beds, understanding the fish... More

This visit was our third in two years. The trains are noisy, but the accomodations and location are worth putting up with it. The larger rooms are a great deal. Plenty of space, but the rooms only have double beds. The tubs have jets, and are large. Nice kitchenettes, and roomy living room/dining room areas. We have stayed in a... More

When I was browsing, I came across the Columbia Gorge Riverside Lodge and even though it's been several years, I wanted to share our experience. Honestly, I feel like it is the right thing to do. Based on the website and my conversation with Angus, I booked the Calypso room. The rooms looked decent sized (the photographs on the website... More

Wow, I just read the other reviews, and can't believe they are referring to this property! First off, the pictures on the web site must have been taken with a wide-angle lens, or some other trickery, because the cabins/rooms are TINY!! I suspect, in hindsight, that's why they all have double beds! We saw 2 rooms; the first one was... More

Yes, there are trains. The tracks are across the street and there is a crossing also. But for the price and the location right on the river you can't beat it. The place is very nice with big decks and shared hot tubs, (two rooms per tub). The beds are comfortable and there is ample furntiure inside and out. The... More

This unique collection of modern log buildings is a wonderful retreat on the banks of the greener eastern end of the Columbia River Gorge. My wife and I went there for a relaxing weekend and were rewarded many times over. First, about the trains: yes the tracks are just north of the lodge. Yes, there are a number of trains... More
