Stayed in one of the newer rooms with a river view. Lovely place to relax, comfy beds, clean, and staff is exceptionally friendly. For the price, wish breakfast was included but many good options nearby in town.

Hood River is a place to enjoy the great outdoors and breathtaking views of the Columbia River Gorge. Westcliff is the BEST place to stay to enjoy that view. It is an older lodge with the rooms arranged along the river. The grounds are beautiful with picnic tables and walks to enjoy the river. Some rooms have balonies - definitely... More

We only intended to stay here one night while we were touring Oregon but we loved the location so much that we stayed an extra night in the end! It was definately worth paying the extra money for a two room suite with a river view. It is one of the best views I have ever had from a motel...... More

We stayed here one night while visiting the Gorge. The room was very comfortable, great beds. But the view of the river was incredible from balcony. Would definitely recommend. Staff was helpful at check in. FYI, no elevator to second floor rooms.

Thanks for your review! We'll be working on improving the view a bit more as well, so it will be even better from the balcony! Yes, the top floor our buildings do require a flight of stairs to get up to; we did build the steps to have a more gentle slope and wider step than most other stairways, making... More

Beautiful location, super helpful/kind staff and beautiful cottage with 2 beds and baths. Absolutely would stay again The cottage has been updated and is very clean comfortable. The only suggestion to the owner is to add a shower in the master bathroom. Jetted tub is nice if your on a romantic get away but for a family shower please :-)

Thanks for your review, glad you had a nice time with the family! I'll look into the idea of adding a shower to the master bathroom, retrofitting the Jacuzzi tub. We will continue to make improvements to our special place so your family will always have a spot to enjoy time together. Thanks again! More

We were on a two-week trip through the northwest, and stayed one night at the Westcliff Lodge. By far, this was the best hotel we stayed in. The setting was amazing-we had a deck that looked out over the Columbia River, and the view was awesome. The entire setting was great-beautiful landscaping, gazebo and decks. Our room was large, clean,... More

This was our second stay at The Vagabond. Wonderful park-like setting with beautiful views of the Columbia River. Although we did not luck in to a river view room, our accommodations were clean, spacious and pleasant - and the bed was wonderful! It's located conveniently to all sorts of tourist adventures including Mt. Hood, Cascade Locks, and the hot springs... More

The Wife and I stayed at this hotel a coupe of years ago and really enjoyed our short stay. We decided to have a mini vacation and picked this spot because of it's central location in the Gorge area. The name had been changed but it still the wonderful little almost resort like place we had visited before.

Can't beat the views and location here. Very hospitable staff and clean room. I will say this is good value because of the view and because the guest room is updated. But very small even with 2 queens for 2 adults and a small child. Having one window on the parking lot tho meant noise and lights from other guests... More
