The surroundings in and around the Columbia Gorge is just awesome. Hood River Valley is a 'Garden of Eden' Everyone should take the slow lane when visiting this area. I did notify the desk that one of the beds seemed to be broken because it sloped and sqeaked

We chose this hotel for it's proximity to all the hiking trails in the gorge area. It's clean and has consistent Best Western furnishings and quality. It's right by the Bridge of Gods and is in the small town of Cascade Locks. The staff were cordial, the hotel well maintained, parking located outdoors. We had a suite with a hot... More

This was one of the most comfortable and clean rooms we have had at a Best Western. Had a room looking towards the bridge. People were very nice and helpful, although there were a lot of kids running around and making a LOT of noise.

The view from the rooms and the breakfast area is awesome. There is a train nearby that runs often but is surprisingly quiet. The beds are comfortable and we appreciated the a/c as we visited during a warm time of the year. Cascade Locks is a small quiet town. The hotel's location is near several easy to moderate hiking trails... More

This is a decent hotel but the weekend we stayed there was an event going on so the price was waaaay over-inflated. Definitely not a good enough hotel for the price we ended up paying. Very nice staff and the rooms were clean with comfy beds. The breakfast was definitely lacking though. They give you a voucher for the restaurant... More

We called ahead just the day before for a room. There were only 2 left at the hotel. One with a balcony ( it was cool weather) and the other was a suite. We were so lucky to get the corner suite on the 3rd floor. 2 Windows faced across the Columbia Gorge and the 3rd looked down the Gorge... More

This was a last minute reservation and we were pleased to get a room with a fabulous river and Bridge of the Gods view. Rear rooms overlook the busy railway, but no whistles are allowed so the train noise wasn't an issue. Breakfast was adequate next door, where the view was also wonderful, but presentation was poor. Overall, highly recommended!

It seems that the hotel failed you in all ways and I am very sorry. I am also sorry that the Natural beauty of the Columbia River Gorge did not provide for you entertainment. Thank you for staying with us and I hope that Best Western International can assist you in the future. More

Great hotel. Excellent beds. Friendly staff. The views are amazing. We visited with our 4 children and had a nice time. Breakfast is simple but pretty good. Close to all of the water fall sites. Would stay again if traveling in this area.
