The hotel is in a great location for touring the Columbia River Gorge and all its wonderful waterfalls. The hotel itself is right along the Columbia River near the Bridge of the Gods. There were plenty of dining options in town as well as in Stevenson across the river. The staff was friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was at...

Thank you for staying with us while spending time in the Gorge. It is wonderful that Cascade Locks is right in "the heart" of the Cascade Mountain range and all the Gorge has to offer. I hope you have the opportunity to return to the area and we invite you to stay with us again.

My friend and I attend the Hood River harvest festival every year. We usually stay in Hood River. This year we decided to stay in Cascade Locks and explore the area. I am so glad we did. The hotel, from start to finish was truly exceptional. The views of the Columbia river and the Bridge of the Gods from our...

This hotel is very clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the views of the river were awesome. We had such a wonderful time here. The breakfast in the restaurant next door was excellent also. The girls at the desk were very helpful to us with making our dinner plans. We Loved our visit here.

Stayed here for one night while passing through the Columbia River gorge. While this was one of the most expensive hotels on our trip, you get good value for the money and I assume pay for the location too - right next to the Bridge of the Gods and overlooking the river. Our top floor room was nicely appointed, very...

The rooms overlooking the Bridge of the Gods and the Columbia River were just perfect for our family trip. The view was incredible, and the rooms were larger than a typical 2-bedroom hotel room. There was a table and chairs, plus a couch, so we could all spread out. The included breakfast was available at the Bridgeside Cafe, just next...

The view of the Columbia River is stupendous! There is a lot of traffic there with barges, private boats, etc. The UPRR runs right along the river here, but ear plugs are provided for a peaceful night sleep if the noise becomes disruptive. The room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel provides breakfast at the restaurant next door with is...

We stayed here on a bicycle trip. The manager as well as the staff did a great job from start to finish. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast was terrific. It is served at a full restaurant next door and offered various choices. The only aspect causing concern were the railroad tracks, but we were not awakened during...

It was our pleasure to have your group stay with us, thank you so much. I am happy the trains did not give you a bad time...if I could move those tracks out of The Gorge I would do it today. We do hope you will return to Historic Cascade Locks and invite you to stay with us again.

We really enjoyed our stay facing the river. We had a room on the end on the first floor which was very convenient for taking our dog out. The trade off is no balcony which is also nice on the other floors. We loved hearing the train go by. On the Oregon side they don't blow their whistles, but on...

this motel is a great place to stay. The view from the room was unbelievable overlooking the river and gorge. It is literally on main highway but still quiet and cozy. We really enjoyed our stay and recommend this place to everyone

Location: We picked this hotel because of its proximity to many great hiking trails along the Columbia Gorge. It is located yards away from the Bridge of the Gods, which means there is easy access to hikes on both the Washington and Oregon sides of the gorge. It is about a 15 min. drive from the Multnomah Falls and a...
