“Wonderful location, super nice visit..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Great place to stay when visiting the cascade locks area, but stay on the road side of the building as the trains do run quite often and right next to the motel. But the rooms are great, the breakfast was very good. We went next door to the Charburger for a burger and onion rings ( fantastic onion rings ). Bridge of the Gods right above you too, all in all a wonderful stay

Room Tip: Stay on road side away from train tracks

Well you are correct there is a train track and if I could move it today I would. More often then not it does not bother our guest and we do provide earplugs so that everyone can enjoy the fabulous river view. Thank you so much for staying with us and I am pleased you ate next door, they are on the finial days of extensive renovation and our very excited to "get going". We are pleased to announce that they are doing our breakfast now and have had great comments. We invite you to come back to the Columbia River Gorge and hope you will stay with us again

This is a nice clean facility located in a very unique spot. Great view of the Bridge of the Gods and very scenic views of the Columbia River and mountains on the Washington side of the river. A number of other attractions in the area. Hotel is right next to a restaurant and that is where you get your complimentary breakfast (coffee is available right in the hotel). The breakfast choices are very good as was the food itself. We definitely would stay here again. Light sleepers might want to bring a set of earplugs as there is a well used train track that runs between the hotel and the river.

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your breakfast next door, we have only been doing this one short week and it is seems to be going very well. Thank you for staying with us in Historical Cascade Locks...if I could move those train tracks today I would do it! We do put ear plugs in all river view guestrooms and it does help light sleepers. We invite you to come back and stay with us again.

My stay at Cascade Locks was excellent. My family and I have never been treated so well. From front desk staff to housekeeping to the breakfast. The only down side, you have to be ok with train noise. I brought my fan and stayed on the fourth floor. Did not bother us, the kids and grandkids slept right thru. Beds were very comfortable.

I want to thank you for staying with us and I am pleased to hear the train did not cause to much grief for you...if I could move those tracks out of the National Scenic Area I would do it today. We invite you and your family to return to Cascade Locks and stay with us again.

We stay here about 4 times a year and love this place. It is being remodeled and updated at the present time. All new carpet, bedding, drapes. Beautiful!! We stayed on the 4th floor which was redone and finished two weeks ago. The hotel is very clean including the hallways, all common areas as well as the rooms. The best part is the staff. They go out of their way to accommodate your special requests whenever possible. The trains are loud but fun to watch. Be sure to get a river view room as the view of the river and Garden of the Gods bridge are fantastic. The small extra cost is well worth it. The indoor pool is fun to use. This is a very small town but a lot of fun. Can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor, better view. The room with the love seat is roomy and very comfortable.sfaf

Beautiful property, and very nice room. Trains go by all the time along the Gorge but you would never know it! The view of the bridge and the Gorge is breathtaking. Aundy Meyer made our stay wonderful, thanks Aundy!

Room Tip: A room facing the Gorge. They have balcony rooms.

Our stay at this hotel was great! The staff was amazing, very welcoming and caring. They want to make sure you are taken care of. The rooms were nice, its a pet friendly hotel which was great. The kids LOVED the pool. If I had one complaint, it would be that the breakfast leaves a little bit to be desired but its free so hey.. Other than that the rooms, the location, the pool and the staff were great! I cant say enough about the staff-seriously they were great! We will be staying there again...

We stayed at theis Best western and really enjoyed just sitting and watching the Columbia river flow by and the river traffic of tugs and barges. The train traffic was a little noisy and close for comfort, after a while we didn't even notice the noise of the occasional train going by the back door. A nice place, nice staff, and the Char burger dinner next door was okay for a burger and beer on the riverside patio.

Room Tip: Make sure to reserve a river view room.
