This is an old hotel built in the 1920’s which was remodeled a few years ago - inside is very clean and updated except for lobby areas which are decorated to reflect the period the hotel was built. Some of the rooms are small but well appointed and many have great views. Owner/proprietor was wonderful - she was very knowledgeable about the local area and made some excellent suggestions on where to go and what to see. Beautiful back patio has a gas fire pit, a barbecue and sitting area. Common room adjacent to breakfast room was comfortable with a piano, games and plenty of seating choices. Breakfast and snacks are available 24 hours a day - it was nice to have an ice cream treat right before bedtime. Be sure to take the ferry across the River while you are in the area.

We stayed in room 212, which we were delighted to discover looked out over the neighbor's large front-yard koi pond with huge colorful fish. Check-in was easy and fast, and the staff were very friendly. Our room had a comfortable queen bed, a couple of chairs, and a separate sitting area with a futon couch and a desk (which worked well for playing board games in the evening). This is an old, charming building, so if you've never stayed in one, don't expect it to look like a new chain hotel. The hallway floor does creak, but everything is clean and comfortable. They have a good selection of self-serve breakfast items and they leave snacks out as well. They have a common area with seats and bookshelves, and they have a breakfast area and library area with games and videos to borrow. We enjoyed our stay and would do so again.

This place is fantastic. It's 100% accessible with no stairs on the hotel level. All the bathrooms have walk in showers. There's plenty of parking in the back or along the street. The serve yourself kitchen is fully stocked with coffee/tea/hot chocolate as well as all kinds of snacks. Like ice cream bars, yogurt and pastries. It's also open 24/7! There's a large game room (with games and dvd's) and a couch to relax and read. The outside seating area is sheltered so even when it's chilly it's nice to sit there. The doors lock behind you so remember to bring your room key! There's a grocery store next door and a Mexican restaurant and bar across the street (you get 10% off). Our room had a great view of the Columbia river.

I really like staying here. I've been twice now, and I think it's something special. Honestly, the first time I stayed here, it was because it was along my way and inexpensive. I was quickly charmed, and on my next visit to the area, it was a first choice destination. It's very comfortable, and there are lots of quality extras. the owners really care about you. There is a good brewery a few blocks away, as well as a store with good meats and seafood, that can be cooked at the hotel. I look forward to staying there again!

1 night stay on way to Seattle. Family room with 2 beds. Great if you like older style horels, but not our cup of tea. Maybe should have looked at the discription a little harder as we would not have chosen this. Floors and beds very creaky, blow air cooling/heating comes in with a whoosh aii throughout the night. Saving grace is a very good breakfast selection. For my liking a bit too much emphasis on the extra cost for smoking and pets in the hotel "if mess is made extra costs will be incurred etc" and on.
