Also,no fruit except for bananas at breakfast, which is weird since it is cherry, apricot season in a cherry state. Room had fabulous view overlooking columbia river. Clean. Great indoor pool, larger than it appears. So convenient to to Highway with all the waterfalls... More

We were in attendance for a wedding on Thunder Island. This hotel had average ratings. The facilities were clean and comfortable, but the staff needed some serious customer service training. I know they were very busy at the time were we checked-in, but that is where excellence can over the mediocre. This place was horrible for customer service.

Great location next to the Bridge of the Gods surrounded by superb scenery. There are a number of small restaurants in walking distance of the hotel along with Thunder Island Brewing. Trains do pass close by to the river view rooms so if you do not like train noise ask for a road side room. For us, we enjoy the... More

The hotel is right on the river, and as mentioned, the train tracks are quite close. Not often do trains pass so the proximity isn't offensive. Our room was clean and updated, with comfy beds and lots of room for all to relax. Staff is very friendly and the breakfast at "The Bridgeside" was tasty.

This is my third time staying here. The lobby is large with plenty of seating; the business center is located in a corner of the room and would probably be better placed in a move private area as everything you do is open to the view of others. Check in was OK - the staff member who greeted me seemed... More

Very comfortable hotel. Well located to the local attractions. Train noise was louder than expected, but not unwelcome. We spent 2 nights in here and would definitely stay here again if we return. OK WiFi, adequate breakfast.

Thank you for staying with us while visiting the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Gosh if I could move those tracks out of the Gorge I would do it today, I am happy they did not bother you to much. We look forward to your return to the Gorge and invite you to stay with us again. More

We had a balcony room with a view of the Columbia River, Room 117, and a view of the Bridge of the Gods. This is the bridge that Charles Lindberg flew under in 1927. We could only imagine as we sat on the balcony what that would have been like as he flew past where we were sitting. Also see... More
