I loved this place, wish I could live there! We had a amazing view of the river. The bed was wonderful! The bathroom was clean and inviting. Aveda products were a plus. Rainfall shower, OMG! If ever in Hood River again I will have to stay here. It was very quite at the time we went. There was contruction going on at the time, but probably finished by now. The staff was very friendly and pleasant. There is a waterfall on the property, so relaxing.

My wife and I just spent three days at The Columbia Villas and there was a lot to like about this place. We have a son, wife and two small grand children who live in Hood River and we wanted to see the as well as the Kiteboarding For Cancer fundraiser. The staff could not be friendlier and more helpful. When we arrived at our room we were pleasantly surprised by its immense size. It was very clean and had a very large kitchen, living room, balcony, and half bath on the second level. The bedroom and full bathroom was on the third level witha small balcony overlooking the Columbia River. We stayed in a suite and it was expensive but the large premise was well furnished and very clean and well kept. The only complaint was the shower which needed a new shower head because the water shot everywhere but where it should. The only other downside is that it is not conveniently located to the town, but rather it was a 5 to 10 minute drive from the town center. When we return to Hood River, we will be staying here again.

Thanks you for staying at Columbia Cliff Villas and especially for taking time to pass on your positive comments to TripAdvisor travelers. I assure you the leaky shower head has already been repaired and that we look forward to your next visit. Next time be sure to talk to our concierge about directions to the town center. You may have discovered a scenic back road through town but we are actually located just over a mile away from the town center and it can take less than two minutes when you use the nearby freeway Entrance #62 and jump back off at Exit #63 - the City Center Exit. Visitors can also find a map on our website. Downtown Hood River has several great restaurants, brew pubs, tasting rooms and shops in it's historic and charming town center but it is at a lower elevation and set back from the river, opposite the freeway. As you know, the breathtaking views from our 210' cliff-edge site is worth the commute. However, you may not have discovered that some of the area's best fine and casual, indoor and outdoor dining is located right next door and there is also a great wine shop and five other restaurant options within a few blocks of our hotel. Our website provides links to several of these restaurants, wineries and local attractions, as well as the proximity map.
Happy travels,
Steve Tessmer, Owner/Manager

My husband and I spent one night in the Pinnacle Suite. We had reserved the Grand Courtyard room, but when we mentioned it was our anniversary the staff suggested we upgrade at a discounted rate to the Pinnacle to enjoy more of the river view and more space. The suite was very nice, basically a three bedroom townhouse with the other two rooms "locked-off". When you entered you'd go up a flight of stairs to the main living area with a full kitchen, living room, dining, half bath and balcony. Although a bit too much space for our one night stay, we thought it would be a great place to return with two other couples for a long weekend. Upstairs was the master bedroom with double sinks, large walk-in shower and bath tub. The small balcony in the master looked over the garden and river.

At check-in we received free wine tasting vouchers which was a nice touch. Overall, the suite was clean, new with quality fixtures. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Although, it was a bit spendy for a night in Hood River, we'll most likely be back, but with a group to enjoy the different set-up that this "hotel" offers.

The hotel is perched on a cliff overlooking the Columbia unfortunately most rooms look at other buildings or the parking lot. As one person noted below some rooms do not have thermostats, you're at the mercy of how the guy next to you wants to heat or cool their place. The interior furnishings are a cut above the norm. The folks behind the desk are first rate. The only ones I would blame for the odd layouts and rooms are the architects, it's as if it was designed for another location and plunked down here in the worst possible arrangement.

Dear Bamboo_Screen,
Thanks for staying with us and for posting your compliments about our staff and room furnishings. It sounds like you chose one of our standard “Euro” rooms that do not offer the magnificent views of the Columbia River Gorge. You and other TA readers may be interested to know that most of our rooms and suites provide breathtaking views, as well as separate climate control systems, fireplaces and spacious walk-in showers. Our Euro rooms are designed to function as a second or third bedroom that can adjoin our luxury suites to serve families and friends traveling together. Many online travel sites choose to offer these smaller lock-out suites just to show a lower price. If you and other TA readers visit our website, you will find accurate descriptions, photos and floor plans to help choose the features and price points that best suit your needs.
I should also note that most of our Euro rooms ARE equipped with their own climate control systems. However, a few of the ones that usually compliment the larger suites connect to a central air conditioning system that normally provides adequate climate control. Due to a few instances when guests have required a more responsive system, we are in the process of adding additional separate systems for these rooms as well.
We hope you will return again and choose to stay in one of our river view rooms.
Thank you,
Steve Tessmer, Owner/Manager

This place is expensive. It has nice views, nice beds, really nice showers. This is not a hotel, it is more like a timeshare. As a result, the rooms feel very private. It didn't seem like there was much around that part of Mt. Hood beside the exclusive-looking Columbia Gorge Hotel next door. It was nice to sit on the balcony and watch over fifty windsurfers ply the waters right below us.

Room Tip: Obviously get a room facing the river.

Dear Flossdaily8111,
Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to post your positive comments.
I wanted to clarify for the benefit of TA readers, however, that we are NOT a timeshare. AND, while we do feature the most luxurious accommodations in the Columbia River Gorge, we also offer a wide variety of rooms and suites at rates that most guests find very competitive for our destination market.
As described in more detail on our website, Columbia Cliff Villas is a very unique condominium-hotel facility, made up of several exquisitely furnished, high-end, privately-owned, villas and carriage house units. Most are managed for nightly and extended stay rentals when owners are not in residence.
Our four new structures tie into the architecture and character of the adjacent, historic Columbia Gorge Hotel where our owners and guests frequently enjoy fine and casual, indoor and outdoor dining and spa services. Our own concierge and reservations staff is available 24/7 to provide a level of service found nowhere else in the area.
While all your comments were positive and much appreciated, I wanted to assure you and other TA members that we strive for nothing short of 100% satisfaction. Our entire staff hopes you will return soon. Whether you choose one of the lavish villas again, or a more-affordable Euro or River room, I’m sure you will agree that this level of quality is more what you would expect to find in a fine home than in a nice hotel - or even an up-scale timeshare.
Happy travels,
Steve Tessmer, Owner/Manager
