This motel and store was just what we needed after a lot of hours travelling. The room was exceptionally clean. The office gal was very friendly and helpful, as was the gal at the store. Had a nice view of the river. It is not real fancy, but the cleanliness is 100%. Would definitely stay here again!

Not a fancy place, but reasonably priced, very clean, with friendly and helpful employees. Clean white smell like bleach, and I love that! Even had a river view from our room! Close to lots of river recreation and historical sites. Easy access to 85 or 14.

Decided to spend the night in the area on the way home from work. Called all the local motels and all were in the same price range but Dintys was just a couple dollars cheaper. Doesn't look like much on the outside but the rooms are recently remodeled, clean, and comfortable. I've stayed in higher priced places that were nowhere...

I agree with earlier reviewer: clean, convenient, and more than affordable. Office staff friendly and helpful. A great choice if you're trying to break up trip across Oregon. If you need shampoo/conditioner, just remember to pick some up in the office. They keep it there to avoid waste. Also, you get a voucher for coffee at the store just across...

Dinty's Motor Inn ain't no fancy joint, but it ain't tryin' to be one. It's my favorite in the Columbia Gorge because it follows Bigshot's Rule of 3 C's for Great Motels: Clean, Convenient and Inexpensive. It's on the Columbia River at the intersection of Highways 87 and 94, so it's close to Washington's Maryhill area and it's a gateway...

VERY NICE Motel. Clean, Large Rooms and Very friendly people. The price was the best around. The view from the window is beautiful. You see the river and the hill behind it not the normal buldings or street view. I WILL Stay there again when in the area.

Overlooking the Columbia river. Nice clean room and great mattress. Old but well maintained. Friendly staff. Good WiFi. No continental breakfast. Good value for a reasonably priced room. We happily would stay here again.

Impressive little motor inn! I called ahead and showed up late, the office gal was very friendly and accommodating. The room was decent sized, bed was one of the more comfortable hotel beds I have slept on and it was very clean. If I had a gripe it would be the lack of shampoo but that won't stop me from...

Dirty's is a traditional motel located in a busy highway service area. Clean and comfortable with no fancy features or remarkable negatives. We enjoyed a good night sleep and a decent meal in the close by diner. One unusual feature is the vouchers for free coffee from the store next door instead of the ubiquitous motel room coffee maker.
