My parents and I pass through Boardman about twice a year on our annual trek to Montana and we always stay at the Boardman Marina Park in our RV. Great place but I'm writing about the eating facilities near by; The River Lodge and Grill. We have not had great experiences there so we always opt for a little nondescript... More

We stumbled upon this hotel when we couldn't get a reservation in Pendelton due to a music fest. What a wonderful surprise. Friendly staff, beautiful setting. It is steps away from the Columbia River, beach space with fire pits, swing set. We had a first floor, river side king room with pull out. I am assuming they are still decorating,... More

The River Lodge is a pleasant surprise in Boardman, right on the river. The rooms are roomy, the beds comfortable and the attractive, young woman at the front desk was delightful and knowledgeable. We have stayed there several times before, and should the need arise, will again. Where else would one stay in Boardman? ,

Nice big, clean room. Speedtest.net showed 12 download and ZERO upload. So I couldnt even check email (since I couldnt upload my login). I checked out early as I needed to work online. Restaurant service extremely slow. Oer a hour to get a plate of nachos for dinner (16 tables, 2 servers and one cook) and then over 20 minutes... More

Coming into the town Boardman it's just an ordinary looking place, but get off the road a mile or so to this lodge and everything changes.This is the second time we have stayed here in a lovely room with a beautiful view of the Columbia River just below us. The sunset can be spectacular. And then there's breakfast...We'll be back... More

We thought we were booking a room in Pendelton Oregon and found ourselves down the road in Boardman. I'm really glad we found this gem. We are on the water so it's relaxing. The lobby is nicely decorated and the restaurant was good. The rooms are large and comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Alpine styled property right on the bank of the Columbia River which is a quarter mile wide here. Generous sized rooms offer everything a traveller needs. A small pool and an on-site restaurant offer the opportunity to enjoy watching the river activity. Staff particularly attentive and helpful. Highly recommended.

I stayed at the River Lodge and Grill for a few months on business. It could be better, the folks that work there aren't very accommodating. For instance I wanted a club sandwich for dinner which is on their menu but because it was dinner and not lunch I couldn't order it! Just stupid stuff like that kinda got my... More

Thank you for your honest feedback. I understand your frustration with our restaurant not being able to deviate from the menus, unfortunately with our limited kitchen size and staff it is difficult for us to serve lunch items at dinner time. Between breakfast, lunch and dinner we modify the temperatures for the oven and grills. Unfortunately, it would take quite... More

This hotel is not far from the freeway, and appears to be in the midst of an industrial zone, but once you get there is in fact right on the Columbia river with a few nice walks and lovely views. Rooms are large and comfortable and the restaurant is very good with a good gf menu.

The rooms were clean and adequate, the desk clerk was very friendly, helpful, and made us feel at home. The best part was probably the Grill we ate at while there. My husband ordered fish and chips and I ordered the roasted chicken. The waitress Jessica was so full of gusto and all around delight. The food was excellent. View... More
