The staff were outstanding - friendly and happy to engage with travellers. The rooms modern and spacious . Unfortunately, the breakfast was disappointing. There was no juice both mornings and healthy choices were minimal. It is a short walk to the action of the main street.
...a day BEFORE we were supposed to. The hotel quickly worked with us to get us a room. Smooth transition. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean. In fact, the entire property is that way. You simply can't beat the location. It's about a mile to downtown and is very walkable. My wife and I did that several times. Plus, it's right on the Columbia. So nice to wake up in the morning, open the shades, and see that beautiful water rolling by. The restaurant is terrific. Plenty to choose from and everything we had was excellent. Again, you've got that view! We really appreciated the free grab-n-go breakfast. There's a choice of three things each day. If you ever find yourself in Hood River, THIS is the place to stay.
We stayed one night, midweek, asked for a quiet room. The manager was accommodating and put us on the top floor of the west wing. Unfortunately, the bridge crossing the Columbia River was right there, incredibly noisy. We tried to sit on the balcony but we couldn’t hear each other without shouting. The breakfast was good. The mattress wasn’t great, woke with a backache. Not a great experience overall.
On previous visits to Hood River we knew we wanted to stay in a central location, ideally with a view of the majestic Columbia River Gorge. The Best Western Plus Hood River Inn was located in a great place, close to downtown shopping, the beautiful river and a short drive from the Fruit Loop. Service was very good on a very busy visit, with a large convention meeting nearby. Our room was nicely appointed and had a view of the river, with one exception. The bushes outside the sliding door to a small patio had grown so large it was not possible to really see the view from the room. Worse, it was not possible to walk out of the patio onto the adjacent lawn, so the benefit of having a view room was substantially reduced. The landscaping crew needs to cut back those overgrown bushes outside the view rooms on the first floor. Otherwise we had a very pleasant stay. A bonus is that just behind the inn there is a very pleasant walking path that winds all the way over to the nearby marina and on to a park.…
I love staying at the Best Western Plus in Hood River, Oregon. I travel to the area every week for work. The front desk is top notch, especially Kerry Smart! Kerry is the GOAT! This hotel has a great team. If you haven’t stayed here, do it! You’re going to enjoy it. The perfect combination of professional and warm to make a person feel cared for and special. I also love the Riverside restaurant located at the hotel. It’s good food in a fancy atmosphere. Such a nice way to start and end the day.
The one night stay was great. Check in was easy, the room was clean (except for the areas around the door handles and I talked to the front desk about it). It was quiet (even on the highway side). Best of all, the attached restaurant and bar were really good. The bartender was really creative and a good people person. Dinner was good (not great because the fried calamari was undercooked). Breakfast was super creative and yummy! We'll be back.
Wow. A Best Western that is better than the majority of five star hotels. Beautiful outdoor, heated pool plus hot tub with views over the river. Gorgeous grounds. It's own little beach and river path. An amazing restaurant where you have actual menu breakfast for half price with huge portions each morning. Clean large rooms, many with views. We didn't even get a room with a view and we still had an awesome time. Almost can't believe it is a Best Western, although there's also a brilliant Best Western in Grass Valley, CA if you're looking for another five star experience. We are so glad we got the last room in the place on a busy wedding weekend.
Over an hour to check in om a weekday. Apparently a frequest occurrence, since there was a had-written sign on the entry door that said "the check-in line forms to the right". I don't have to wait an hour to check in when there are 100 people ahead of me in line in Las Vegas. BW had three clerks at the desk, and they were having a tough time getting people with reservations checked in in less than eight minutes each. Very disappointing.
We have been to Hood River many times and usually stay in a Airbnb...However, we spontaneously decided to stay overnight in Hood River and found a great room available at the Best Western for a great price. We were pleasantly surprised by amazing service and a beautiful facility.
This hotel has a great reputation I heard about and it met all my expectations Rooms very comfortable food great and staff very friendly. The pathway to town is worth walking, it is along the marina, and traffic free. It brings you to the bridges over the freeway right to town.
