This hotel is awesome. Beautiful view of the Columbia River, great rooms, and wonderful staff. Shana was awesome. Really cool patio overlooking the Gorge. Don't let the motel sign fool you. This place is fully remodeled and upgraded. Excellent service. The only place to stay in The Dalles.

Great to hear that you were able to enjoy the patio. Come back for a weekend in the summer and enjoy live music on the patio as well! Your comment will be shared with Shana. Much thanks!

From my initial phone call answered by Zai who is extremely professional and courteous to the assistant manager Gunnar my experience was first class. I would highly recommend this Inn in The Dalles, Oregon.

Courteous help, complimentary wine, continental breakfast, comfortable bed, captivating views of The Dalles. Not your typical hole-in-the-wall motel by a long shot. I spent the night in April, when the surrounding hills were still green and desert wildflowers were starting to bloom. I am so glad I skipped the Shilo Inn at the bottom of the hill.

We had a great time this weekend at Celilo Inn. Paula, who works the night shift, was especially friendly and kind towards all the guest. As usual, the rooms are clean and nicely decorated. We regularly choose Celilo because of the fire pit. It's so fun to meet people out there and share a glass of wine - or several...

My check in at the celilo inn with Ms. Moshon was premiere. She was very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable of the surrounding areas. Also, the complimentary glass of wine was a pleasant surprise as well. The single "King's" view was "outstanding." The room and the entire facility was clean and a total pleasure to stay.
