“Just a marvellous place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

All our friends in Portland told us WE HAVE TO GO THERE!

So we did and we are so happy as it is a very, very nice place. We had a beautiful room overlooking the river. There was a huge expanse of water outside the window! There were choppy, white waves and a flock of little ducks floating up and down to greet us. So cheerful! The room was warm and cosy and I agree with the other reviewers, the bedding is super comfortable.

The room was also very clean and beautifully prepared.

The dinner, pork chops, huge, juicy and very delicious. Breakfast, oatmeal with pears for myself and ham, eggs and potatoes for my husband. The breakfasts were included in the price of the room and were both excellent. That is a lovely dining room by the river and the staff are just top notch, professional and charming.

This place makes a wonderful escape; just wished we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: River view was really wonderful.

I have stayed twice at the Best Western Hood River Inn. Each year, the room had a lovely view of the river. I look forward to the delicious oatmeal with poached pears served at breakfast. With free breakfast, discounted lift tickets, and an easy drive to the slopes, the value can not be beat. Great hotel for large groups!

Room Tip: Go for the river view!

This is an very well run Best Western. The room was extremely clean, a bit odd shaped as it was at the end of the building but spacious. Nice view of the river. Excellent food and service in the restaurant both for dinner and for breakfast. The staff are polite and professional. Would highly recommend.. management are to be applauded here.

My wife and I drove up to Canada and back to California for a week of vacation last summer. We had talked about the trip for a while as our 1 year wedding anniversary but we had not made reservations. We arrived the night of the 4th of August at the Hood River Inn after a long day of driving south through backroads of the state of Washington. We crossed the bridge over the Columbia River and pulled into this fantastic hotel. They said that they only had one room left but that they would not charge us the full price of it.
My wife and I were happily surprised to find that their last room was the Wacoma Suite that they put us in! I could not believe how lucky we were, we had almost half the entire first floor of the building with two balconies right in front of the Columbia River! From our bedroom we could see west down the river and from the living room and fireplace area, we could see east up the Columbia River! We had an amazing night in our suite along with a fantastic dinner at the hotel's restaurant! The receptionist was super welcoming and extremely helpful! I highly recommend a night or two at this awesome hotel!

Room Tip: Choose the Wacoma Suite if you can!

This was my first stay at this hotel and it was wonderful! I booked a room in November for Christmas week at a price I would expect to pay during offseason. The room was clean, the staff polite and professional, and the view interesting. The hotel sits directly on the river with a walking trail around the buildings. There is an outside swimming pool and spa, as well as a indoor spa and sauna. We used the indoor spa and it was clean and just the right temp. At 2:30AM I found myself with a sick 7 year old and the front desk clerk was able to direct me as far as what my available options were at that time of night, saving me time and effor trying to find someplace that was open. When I booked my room I signed up for the Best Western club and was pleased to discover upon check-in that this membership provided for a free breakfast for everyone in our room the next morning. The food in the resturant was excellent.

We lucked out big time when we picked this one. Food, room, location, pool, weather; everything perfect like you dream of but never usually seem to find. They even have staff who look nice, and they are nice. Can't wait till next year's vacation; we all want to go there again. Wake up in those fantastic white, soft sheets, pick up the newpaper and lounge in bed drinking coffee, and then down in the elevator to the included in the price scrambled eggs with ham, potatoes, toast, ketchup and jam and a view of the river and the hills from a comfortable booth, please. Wish we did not live so far away.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view.
