“Great outdoor pool and hottub area.”
Reviewed November 24, 2011

We stayed 2 nights in late September in a 2 queen river view room on the upper (third) floor in the western wing. One of the first hotels we stayed at on our trip and we ended up in Anaheim so my memory of the finer details probably not as strong as some but felt the need to recommend this hotel. Would have given it 4 1/2 stars if you can give half stars. What I thought was most impressive about the property was the pool and gym area. This was obviously very new (a map on the website had it in a different location) and located at the far east of the property overlooking the water. Great heated pool and hot tub with a small gym with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the pool / river together with another indoor hot tub. We only ate breakfast at the restaurant but the food was very good. There was traffic noise as others have commented on but certainly bearable - we actually had the balcony door open at night as the room was quite warm and we're not fans of air-conditioning. Hood River itself had some charm but was set away from the river and a little different than we expected. It's a decent drive but recommend driving over to Mt. Hood and going up to Timberline Lodge - beautiful views and you can wander around with historical photos and artefacts etc.If you do, make sure you head over and get a photo of Trillum Lake with Mt. Hood in the background - equal to any other phote from our trip.

The Hood River Inn is our favorite place to stay when traveling the I-84 corridor between Oregon and Washington. The views are spectacular morning, noon, and night. It's so pleasant and the staff is super friendly. I love the piano bar and restaurant. Our last stay, I tried the Sirloin Steak--it was very tasty and much more than I would expect from a hotel restaurant. In the past I have tried their own Mac and Cheese. It was to die for---seriously!!!! The dining area has all the same wonderful views of the Columbia River as your own private room. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The only problem we have ever had is the handicap parking spaces are a long way from either entry way.

Room Tip: Ask for a view room--some face the parking lot. Rooms at far west end are near a large bridge spann...

I hate to say it but I never liked Best Westerns! I hesitated to book here because I always felt they were sub par and I prefer B and B's. Well, I am now a fan of the Best Western Plus chain. This hotel is located right on the Columbia River which is why I choose it. I will admit it is located right off the highway exit and there is a Starbucks and McDonald’s in the same parking lot, but our room faced the water and we never heard or felt any tourist or parking related noise. Once we entered our room the focus was always on the water. We chose the west side of the facility, second floor facing the water. This was based on other trip advisor recommendations and it was the right thing to do. They are renovating the east wing and when we walked through that side it did seem more dated and dark. Make sure you ask for the west bldg. We also upgraded to a junior suite and it was fantastic. Very roomy. A separate living/ dining area with a fireplace. The bedroom was huge and the bed was very comfy. It had a set of slatted double doors which was great for privacy. Both rooms had a flat screen TV and sliding doors with another large window above it for a fantastic view of the river. Each room had access to the private balcony. One warning, if you sleep with the window open you will hear traffic on the bridge that crosses the river. The hotel provides earplugs complimentary.We did not need them as I found it interesting to hear and watch the traffic. And it did die down considerably at night. Our room included a kitchen area with a microwave and refrigerator and a large dining table. We hated to leave the room. However we did, every day, to enjoy their on site restaurant and complimentary breakfast which was very good and very filling. The waitress remembered us each morning and seemed genuinely interested in our travels. We liked the food so much we went to dinner one night and had such a great meal we took leftovers back to the room and had them for dinner the next night. You also get a coupon for 1/2 off the second entree. They have a great bar and everyone you encounter is very proud of their hotel, and the Hood River area. We stayed 3 days and could easily enjoy another week.

Room Tip: Coose the west side bldg and get the upgrade to a junior suite and the river view, it makes for a gr...

I stayed here with my boyfriend while he was on a business trip. Hood River downtown was a short cab ride away. The restaurant was nice and we enjoyed taking walks around the hotel. The proximity of the gas stations was great for snacks and whatnot as well. A dip in the hot tub was enjoyable even in the January winter. Hotel service was very friendly and highly efficient. We would recommend to travelers who are doing business in either Hood River and Bingen.

Excellent room overlooking the Columbia river.The meals in the restaurant were excellent and good value even with the exchange rate against the pound.The staff were efficent and helpful.
The bar area tended to be noisy but did not affect the accommodation.
It is used by business people so expect a little posturing from them establishing pecking order but,observe, smile and enjoy your holiday.

We stayed at the Best Western Hood River Inn for the 2011 Columbia Gorge Marathon. We had 4 adults so we reserved a two bedroom suite right on the the river. The room was beautiful and we couldn't get over how spacious it was. The beds were amazing - I don't know if I've ever slept in any more comfortable. Two large bathrooms one with both a whirlpool tub and shower. There are televisions in the living room area as well as in both bedrooms. The balcony is huge with a large table and chairs and more than large enough room for all four of us to sit around and enjoy the scenery. You could literally live in this space. The staff was great. The restaurant has a view of the river and surrounding mountains and the free breakfast was excellent. It's a very short and pleasant walk to downtown. If ever we head back to Hood River, this is our place.

It was a treat for my girlfriend. A getaway weekend of dining, dancing and wine tasting in Hood River. When I explained this to the staff, everyone treated us as royalty for the entire weekend. Great care from the Hotel Staff, great seating at dinner, a great location close to the dance floor when the band was playing, the very best of everything.
