Enjoyed staying in White Salmon which was quiet, quaint and charming. The family that owns the Inn was super friendly and hospitable. Our family stayed in the hostel room which was comfortable, but a little warm. We enjoyed the sitting area both inside and outside as well as the complimentary coffee in the morning. We would definitely stay here again.

This inn is in an unlikely-looking building; it looks like an apartment-building from the '30s though they say it's always been a hotel. Our room had a Scandinavian, clean-and-wood look to it...and a Martin Luther King quote painted on the wall! The details of the furnishings (medicine cabinet, shelves in closet) were perfectly thought-out. There's a big, comfortable common room... More

Now I gave this hotel 5 stars because it meets my expectations as a older, more classic style hotel. The staff are super nice, and courteous, the rooms were very clean, and the cost was very much affordable. They are usually fully booked so you will need some advance notice. Please do not expect Marriott style hotel here, this is... More

The Inn is a beautiful Boutique hotel built around 1939 we stayed in room 102 just down from the lobby. The room was small... More

The staff is extremely knowledgeable about the area. David spent a good hour with me telling me about the town, and things to do and see. The room I stayed in was so relaxing, and chic. The décor is minimalist, and beautiful. I would defiantly stay here again and recommend this to others. The price point is very reasonable for... More

The Inn of the White Salmon is a tidy, historic boutique hotel in the little town of White Salmon, Washington, nestled in the foothills alongside the north bank of the Columbia River. The Inn is situated on the north end of town in an historic building with a stately charm. The guest entrance is warm and inviting, and the staff... More

Of the 7 hostels I've stayed in over the past 4 weeks, this is by far the best, and the first time I've felt compelled to review. The owner, David, was completely kind and courteous to me. He gave me a free ride when my taxi didn't show and expected nothing in return. All staff are friendly and helpful. The... More

We wanted to surprise our mom on her 80th birthday, but finding a special place to stay that met our criteria in Hood River was difficult, so we broadened our search and found The Inn at White Salmon. We didn't want an ordinary, corporate motel experience, but some place quaint and memorable. And we found it! For our special overnight... More

First time at the Columbia Gorge and this little town, White Salmon, was great! Quaint, clean, friendly hotel that also doubles up as a hostel, the check in desk was super friendly and knowledgeable. Right across from Hood River, this place was convenient. Everyone knows each other and a very, very friendly town. Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel was exactly as described. Small and quaint....room was nice but had a very loud AC unit. Tiny bathroom and mounted TV. But the room was clean and the check in/check out was easy. Great breakfast spot down the street.
