“With Pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

We were extremely pleased with the service & lobby appeal and will definitely return to Best Western, Columbia River Inn, Cascade Looks, Oregon. We live in Florida in winter and Alaska in summer but travel for business extensively and this hotel was a pleasure….good job!

We had the pleasure of celebrating our wedding anniversary last month at the Columbia River Inn.When the staff learned that we were there for our anniversary, they upgraded us to a river view room. The view was great The sun set over the Bridge of the Gods. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast had a good variety. A great place to stay.

Beautiful location, hotel is clean and inviting, breakfast was more than pastries. What really stood out was the staff--everyone I had an interaction with was friendly and clearly trying to do their best to offer great service. Kudos!

Loved our stay. This hotel is quaintly located in the small town of Cascade Locks, Oregon. Our room was on the top floor with a balcony that overlooked the Columbia River. Sitting on the balcony we were able to watch the train go by just below our room and across on the Washington side. The train didn't even phase us during the night it was very quiet for being right there. We enjoyed a wonderful meal just down the road at the Cascade Locks Ale Pub. We are already planning our trip back in the spring.

I am pleased that the trains did not bother you, I know it is difficult for some guest. We are so very luck to have such a spectacular view from our building on the banks of the river. I never get tired of looking at the view and right now with the snow on the mountains it is beautiful. Thank you very much for staying with us and I hope you really do come back and stay.

The hotel is clean and well decorated- we had a nice room with a balcony and a gorgeous view. Staff was beyond friendly, and it was very affordable for a riverfront in the Gorge. Best hotel breakfast ever- waffles, eggs, breakfast burritos, ect...

My wife and I spent Valentines day in a lovely jacuzzi room. I read review after review before choosing the hotel and most praise the hotel for its nice clean rooms, good beds, good facilities, good breakfast, good view and its helpful efficient staff. ALL TRUE! Cannot be faulted on these aspects and I would add, probably the cleanest room I have ever stayed in. Well done. However the blasted trains! Some reviews also mention the trains that travel past on both sides of the river. But reading such good reviews of the hotel you wonder how bad could the trains be. Well we finally arose at 1:30 in the morning hearing train after train to find the conviently hotel supplied ear plugs. If you have ever slept with ear plugs you soon realize its one of two evils; listening to trains without them or trying to sleep listening to your breathing. It's like having Darth Vader in your head! Enough said. But I still have to give the hotel 4 stars and like others who have returned, we would probably choose to stay in this hotel again in this beautiful area.

I wish. I wish, I wish I could move those train tracks today. I understand that the trains really do bother some guest and I agree that it is very sad to have two major train lines going through the National Scenic Area. Thank you so much for giving us a try and we invite you back to stay with us on the "hillside" of the building and view the river from our deck.

This Best Western is a great get-away kind of place with stunning scenic views from all around. You can watch the boats floating along the river, hear and see the trains on both sides of the Gorge. Behind the hotel is a paved walkway along the river for awesome photo ops. Great stop if you're looking to experience Oregon in all it's beauty; hike, wine taste, disc golf, shop in Hood River, or spend zen moments in comfort with spectacular views of the Columbia River. The beds and pillows were super comfy. Loved the shower! Decor was perfect. Staff was super nice and helpful! This hotel also has a gym, pool and breakfast room. I may use this hotel as my go-to mini-vacation! Very well worth the money! Major bonus - check out is at noon!
