I usually stay in at Best Western hotels when I travel.Most of the time they are a good deal for the money. This hotel was one the best that I have stayed in. The room was clean,the staff was great and helpful, the location over looking the Columbia River was fantastic.

Stayed in a "river view" room. It did in fact have a window facing the Columbia and Bridge of the Gods. However, it was a small window (maybe 3'x4') with drapes obscuring part of that. Room was clean as was the bathroom. Bed was just OK. Ready to be replaced, I think. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was served in the... More

We booked this hotel because it was just a few miles from the Stevenson Bluegrass Festival even though the per night rate was over $200. This newer hotel's room was clean, had a microwave, but the sink was in the room - not bathroom. The view is great from the hotel but half the rooms face the street which was... More

I am so very sorry you had an issue with your television, there are several issues that bother me about this as I was here all weekend and there is nothing in the maintenance log that is reviewed daily by me and the maintenance staff. We also do not allow our staff to wear shorts. Monday when I went to... More

This hotel was a great location to explore the river gorge. Our room was large enough for our family of four, we spent three days here and had plenty of room. The rooms nicely decorated and clean. We had a river and bridge view. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool every night. Breakfast is held at the restaurant next... More

Clean, with a nice view. Enjoyed watching the river and boats. Good location for exploring the area. Tasty and friendly family restaraunt next door provided free breakfast ordered from any menu item. Staff helpful and little fruit stands next door and across the street provided easy access to delicious, inexpensive seasonal fruit (cherries)

Fantastic experience except for Karey, desk clerk; absolutely unhelpful and rude . Great smile, totally unhelpful. 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
