All you need to know is that this place is literally two blocks from downtown Hood River, one block over from Full Sail Brewery. If you're visiting Hood River and plan on enjoying more than one of the many fantastic beers in the area, not having to drive home is key.
The condos are in good shape. Having a stove, full refrigerator, and dishwasher is a luxury usually present in suites much more expensive than this. Getting amenities like this at a government rate (if you qualify) is awesome.
Julie (the owner) is really interested in keeping everyone happy. When we checked in, our beds were pretty bad, and she promptly replaced them all with king size beds with memory foam tops. Before our arrival, she sent us an info packet pdf via email with recommendations on where to visit, eat, etc., and checked in on us several times while we were there.
The rooms came stocked with utensils, glasses, pots, pans, etc., although the selection was a bit random and differed from room to room. Not a big deal, but there were times when we had to pool our resources to cook a meal on the supplied gas grills outside.
Parking can be a little dicey; there are just enough spaces between the lot in front of the rooms and the driveway next door for one car for each of the eight rooms, so if you have more than one car, you'll probably have to park in the street out front (not a big deal; it's free).
Since we had a discounted rate, we didn't have cleaning services and had to wash our towels and clean our rooms ourselves. Any other time this would have annoyed me, but considering the fact that we were getting suites for such a cheap price, it wasn't a big deal.
Wi-fi was provided, but I had to switch between two of the three available networks when moving between my room and the area around the grill...each one had a limited working range. One or two wi-fi extenders would probably fix this.
I'll definitely be back!
