“Great Place and Great Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Had to spend the night in Hood River OR last week due to the weather and get off the road. Staff was awesome, friendly and the room had a great veiw of the river. Dinner was in the lounge/bar and again the food and service was fantastic. Great micro beers. In the morning i woke to about 6 inches of new snow and being from Southern California, we dont carry ice scrapers and that stuff, but while i was trying to brush off all the snow and scrap the ice off, one of the house keepers was parking her van and saw my lame efforts and let me borrow her long handled broom, her de ice juice and scraper. Very nice lady and over all the staff was super great!

Sorry to hear you had to get off the road due to weather, but we are so pleased we could offer you a warm place to stay and good food, beverage and service. It’s always nice to hear when a staff person goes the extra mile for one of our guests. Hope you had a safe trip home. Chuck Hinman - General Manager

We came in for a Fruition/ Peter Rowan show! Huge huge hotel, looks pretty new. I always thought of Best Westerns as pretty crummy but this was up there in quality with a Hilton or Marriott. The restaurant was pretty decent. Loved that they hosted the concert but seemed ill-equipped to deal with the rowdy crowd that came with it :) They had live music in the lounge until 1am or so and then let us jam out in a loungey room near by until 3. I noticed they often had deals. The reception did a decent job of keeping our whole group together as we requested (there were ~30 of us).

Room Tip: river side room was really pretty!!!

Dear hfeinberg87, Wow, we are so pleased you and your group of 30 came to the Fruition/Peter Rowan performance! My wife and I were there, too, and it was a truly amazing show! Glad you got to see what the Hood River Inn is all about, and that you found it “up there” in quality. Thanks for writing, and hope you visit again. Chuck Hinman - General Manager

We stay here when we want 2 days of skiing at Mt Hood Meadows. Outdoor hot tub and pool are great, if cold getting in. The 'free breakfast' we got with our room is tasty but service is too slow to make it to Mt Hood Meadows parking lot before it fills on a busy weekend unless you get up really early.

Dear Jeff D, How wonderful to take a ski getaway close to home. We get many compliments on our outdoor pool and spa during the winter months. I apologize about the breakfast service and will remind dining room staff that skiers need special attention. We hope to welcome you back soon. Chuck Hinman - General Manager

Stayed at this hotel to go skiing at Mt. Hood. The drive to Mt. Hood took just under an hour in pretty treacherous conditions. The hotel is very clean and comfortable with a great view of the river. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

In Hood River for annual event which brought us to the BW Plus Hood River Inn. A beautiful room overlooking the Columbia River was very clean & comfortable. Appears this hotel has been recently renovated as the facility appeared to be brand new. The staff at the desk to the restaurant/lounge were very friendly and engaging. I recommend the crab cakes for dinner as they were yummy! Breakfast is included with the room and is a full menu offering and not the continental that is found at the limited service hotels. We will stay here on future trips and I wouldn't hesitate to refer this hotel to anyone visiting the Hood River area.

Room Tip: Definitely request a room overlooking the Columbia River!

Beautiful spot along the river and only negative comment was the heating/cooling system needs updated. The beds are very comfortable and the food is okay but would advise dining out as there are some great restaurants my favorite Hedgewood.

Best Western PLUS offers exceptional value for the money. Fabulous choice of served breakfast items in dining room with river view, business center available with free internet. Location requires car to drive to town, otherwise convenient location. Summer time stays come with discount coupons for wine tasting.
