On our way to the Oregon Coast my husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary with a night our along the way. We had thought we would eat and stay in Hood River Oregon, but when we drove around we did not find anything on the Columbia River that suited our tastes. We ate dinner at a nice pub...

I am pleased you discovered Historic Cascade Locks, thank you for staying with us. Yes we are a quiet tiny town but we pack a punch in million dollar scenery. I hope you find your way back to the Gorge and we invite you to stay with us again.

I had the pleasure to stay here 2 nights, Oct. 2016 & 3 nights Nov. 2012. Staff is friendly, accommodating & remembered us. Best Western Hotel in Cascade Locks is comfortable with scenic views of the Columbia River, Bridge of the Gods, and regularly passing freight trains which add to the ambiance. If you are visiting from an area like...

I had a friend in town and we didn't want to try to drive back to the city when it was dark anyhow. The pros: - Wonderful breakfast in the morning next door, the value was for 2 adults and 2 children, it would have been another $30 out of pocket, but was complimentary with our stay - It was...

Room is large and has a very comfortable bed. I wish I had been given a room with a view of the river and bridge, but it was a nice room anyways. The breakfast is at the restaurant next door which wasn't an inconvenience. The food was good.

We stopped here because it was 1/2 way to our final destination and we are glad we did. We were greeted warmly upon arrival, our room was clean and quiet.

The Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn is by most standards a pretty nice hotel. The rooms, while not exactly exciting, have all of the features that we have come to expect in the 21st Century, the staff seems pleasant and helpful, and the view of the river (and the nearby Bridge of the Gods) is excellent. In addition, included...

We were on the 4th floor facing the Bridge Of The Gods. It was an exceptional opportunity to see the transportation industry in full swing. The Columbia River is a major transportation line so we saw barge after barge with all kinds of products they were moving. We saw an Old Fashion Paddle Boat, We Saw Jet Boats and we...

Great Hotel on the Columbia River Gorge. Make sure you have a room facing the Gorge. If not you will be paying a hefty price for a view of the parking lot.beautiful Stayed at the BW, Resort at the Mountain the night before . That property is beautiful and no room has a bad view.

This hotel offered great service and quick check in. Their breakfast was served at the restaurant next door where you got to pick off of a selected menu. Everything was great, however, there was some road noise but I don't think that can be avoided.
