“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Recently had to spend a few days working in Hood River on a small project. While in town I spent a few nights here. While enjoying a beer in their fantastic lounge I struck up a conversation with a gentlemen at the bar only to discover that it was Chuck Hinman The general manager. Soon after his wife joined us and we all had a nice chat over a few drinks. Chuck was very personable and his wife is a sweetheart. Its no wonder The Hotel is rated as the best in the area.

I have been wanting to take the wife and kids up to the area to check out the gorge. I know where we will be staying when we find the time to get away.

I attended a conference at the Best Western Plus in Hood River. The hotel was wonderful, the staff was friendly and the meetings went smoothly.

The views ... breathtaking and absolutely amazing!

This is a great hotel and it was a great experience!

Recently stayed for a conference. Hotel staff is extremely friendly, professional, and personable. I regret not asking for a river view room. Hotel is directly on the river over-looking an amazing view of the river, and mountains. My room had all the amenities of an updated Best Western, but very dated.

Bed was comfortable, plenty of hot water with great water pressure. Hotel has a full bar and restaurant onsite and nearby a Starbucks. I'd definitely return for a leisurely vacation to enjoy the surrounding area.

Room Tip: Request waterfront view

Dear JeremyMatney, Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. It was good to know that our location, accommodations and service were ideal for your business trip. I apologize that the room you were in has not yet had the upgrades that most others have, we'll be making those upgrades this next off season. Once again many thanks for your review, we hope we will have the opportunity to host you, for that leisurely vacation, very soon.

I would definitely recommend Best Western Plus, Hood River Inn. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and spacious. The bar is a fun place to gather. The meeting space is very unique and it was a pleasure to be here for a 3 day conference.

Starbucks and McDonalds are in the same parking lot if you want to grab something on the go. Also, the views and the location made my business stay feel like a vacation. I'm excited for the opportunity to visit this hotel agein.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a water view room with a balcony to best enjoy the view.

I had the opportunity to stay at this lovely hotel for a business conference. I was placed in a spacious suite with a dynamic river view. My room was at the end of the building close to the automobile bridge crossing the river and the room was extremely quite (unlike what other reviewers have said).

The hotel is located right along the river was a neat little walking trail that will take you into downtown Hood River. I walked every morning to Dog River Coffee Company so that I could get the famous Stumptown Coffee. There is a Starbucks and McDonald's nearby for those who are fan.

The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The food and beverage in the restaurant and bar was extremely and the catered meeting food is better than most. The hotel has been renovated in the last few years and its clearly the best option in Hood River. I look forward to coming back with my family for a leisure trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view.

A very nice remodeled Inn with free wi-fi - if only there were enough useable plugs in the room. I have suggested to management that they put in plug strips near the writing desk - or else you are going to have to bring one yourself.

Room Tip: Be sure to be on the water side. A bit more $ but worth it.

Dear Juby111, Thanks for your review and for alerting me that the plug strip was missing in your room. Limited plug ins is my pet peeve when traveling as well. All of the rooms in our original building with minimal outlets are supposed to have an added vessel providing five additional outlets. I am sorry that this was overlooked in your room. We hope to see you back again soon. Chuck Hinman - General Manager

I am the type to stay in Marriots and Hiltons, but we chose to stay here because it was the only hotel on the water with a view. It turned out to be wonderful!! Activities on the water just outside your room. Very nice pool, great service, laundry room, FREE breakfast (not your regular complimentary; but a really good meal). I definitely recommend!!!!
