We stay here on our way to the coast, every summer. Great location, view, and staff. We typically stay in a small cottage, but haven't seen the cottages listed on their new website. We have also stayed in a upstairs suite, and a hotel room. Room with a river view worth it. Nice little playground for young kids, away from...

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoy visiting with us on the way to the coast! The "cottage" suites are available on our website as kitchen suites, but the best way to reserve a specific favorite room is always to give our office a call and we can get everything set up and reserved for you. We're creating a few...

the room was very clean and roomy - we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend the night - even better then the last Red Lion we spent the night at. We will definitely come here again and will recommend to everyone we know.

This may only be a 2⭐️⭐️ hotel but the location, cleanliness, view and overall comfort make it a 5 star in my book! We had a river facing queen with balcony for less than $100. The rooms are older but very clean, spacious and comfortable. The grounds are lush and well kept and the rooms were incredibly quiet. I would...

I have read others reviews before I got here. Many say how outdated it is. Yes, it was built in 1954! For me that is the charm and appeal of it. It is NOT run down though. It has been well taken care of and kept in very good order. Yes it is old style, but not shabby or unattractive....

Thanks for your review! My grandparents did open our original building back in '54, and we've been slowly adding new buildings over time (our newest opened in 2014).

I stayed at the Vagabond for 3 nights to explore the waterfalls and hiking trails in the Columbia River Gorge. I got a room in the new building, on the second floor, with a large balcony facing the garden/parking lot. It was tastefully decorated, spacious, comfortable and very clean. The beds and linens were perfect. The room was equipped with...

Thanks much for your review! Glad you had some great hikes in the Gorge; there's a few more trails being built this year that will let everyone check out more waterfalls and views. Thanks again!

The Vagabond Lodge offers a low key and low cost nightly rental of their rooms. They have two smoking rooms while the other rooms are non smoking. They have some rooms with fireplaces. Many rooms are handicapped-accessible. The prices are lower during the winter and higher in the summer. Will always recommend for visitors.

Excellent staff. I would recommend this summer or winter for budget conscious travelers. I got a river view room but next door they had a family room with fireplace. This lodging was on a show called hotel impossible. Great revamp. Owned by the same family for generations!

If you are in Hood River, this is the place to stay. The rooms are spacious, well kept, and fully equipped. The staff is super friendly as well. The best part is the price. By far the best deal in town. I would suggest the courtyard view room. I usually prefer a river view, but I found these to be...
