My partner and I just returned from a wonderful getaway at the Cascade Locks Best Western Plus. Of course, we forgot our swimsuits because it is winter, so don't forget yours if you like to use the indoor pool and hot tub. This BW Plus is well maintained, clean, and staff are friendly and greet you with a smile when you arrive. The views of the Columbia River are breathtaking. We woke up to a Bald Eagle flying to its nest across the river. The extra money for a river-view room is well worth it. Beds and pillows are newer and very comfortable. It is true that the train tracks are directly below the hotel, however, this should not discourage you from staying here. It does not come that often and did not disturb my sleep at all, and I am a light sleeper. You cannot hear cars on the bridge either unless you have your window open and are trying to hear them. I slept great. The water stays consistently hot in the shower, and the room comes with a coffee maker, mini-fridge, and microwave (so bring micro-popcorn if you'd like). The town of Cascade Locks is small. We had dinner at this place called the Pacific Cres Pub, which is in town, 2 blocks east and within walking distance from the hotel. They had delicious burgers, fresh salads, and beer. The free breakfast offered at the hotel in the morning was wonderful. It was probably the biggest selection of breakfast goods I have seen at a hotel. There were sausages, whole wheat toast, oatmeal, fresh waffles, cereal. fruit, eggs, cheese omelets, etc. Very impressive and delicious.
This BW Plus is located directly next to the Bridge of The Gods, which costs $1 each way to cross and links Oregon and Washington. Across the bridge is a newer museum called the Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center. It's about $8. per person, but well worth the cost. Lots and lots of historic artifacts and well presented exhibits for the whole family. A little father is the town of Stevensen with some good restaurants, larger grocery store, and liquor store. All in all, this is a nice, well maintained property. I would definitely stay here again.

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, and yes The Bald Eage "couple" has returned this late winter to the delight of our guest this week. It has been great fun to watch them.
