This property has so much potential, it just needs some updating. It's right next to the river and the dam, has a pool, an on site restaurant/lounge and is easy to get to from the highway. Unfortunately, there are some issues:
The bed was like sleeping on a wooden plank--so hard and uncomfortable!
The bedspreads are thin and occasionally stained.
The carpet is stained, in a few places, and greasy feeling. Not sure if that's because they are old, if they were cleaned and it left residue or what, but they felt sort of sticky/greasy.
The hallways are stuffy and hot. No A/C in the common areas? It can hit 100 degrees during summer in The Dalles, why no A/C?
The A/C in my room did not work properly. Thankfully, having just the fan on was enough to keep the room tolerable, but if it had been hotter outside, the room would have been miserable. By the time I discovered the A/C wasn't working I was too tired to complain or request a move to another room.
The "Free" breakfast is a choice of 3 different meals with NO substitutions. That's fine for most people, but if you have food allergies, or other issues, it's not possible to eat the "free" meal you paid for in the cost of your room.
Staff is friendly and helpful.
Restaurant/lounge had good food. Cajun and/or Northwest cuisine--interesting menu.
The view of the dam is nice, if you like looking at dams.
