We have a dog, so it's always challenging to find a balance of price and comfort. This is one of those places that accepts pets but puts you in a special "pet room". This is a "pet peeve" of mine. I understand that people have allergies, but why is it that the "pet room" always sort of smells like urine? I would no more take an incontinent or untrained dog into a motel than I would let a baby run around without a diaper, so why do I have to pay more to smell urine? 10 or 25 or 50 dollars more to let a 25 pound, clean, polite dog stay in a motel room doesn't seem right.

Anyhoo, having said all this, this is a nice Best Western, even though we did get a "dog room". The location on the Gorge is lovely.

Plus, a delicious hot breakfast in the dining room was included in the price. The restaurant is surprisingly good. We ate dinner there too. We had first-rate hamburgers and an arugula and beet salad that knocked my socks off! This was seriously fresh produce beautifully dressed.

The location complemented our itinerary of visiting the Columbia Gorge, Mt. Hood and The Dalles. Our river view room was clean and comfortable. The unexpected benefit of staying here was the superb Riverside Grill located in the motel.

My husband and grandchild (3yrs) and brother in law and sister in law and I stayed one night at the Hood River Inn, right on the Columbia River.
The room with a balcony overlooking the river was just perfect for our last day in Oregon. I wish we could have stayed there longer. The room was clean, we had a microwave and fridge which we used.
We also used the Riverside grill for both dinner and breakfast, which was also very good.

I stayed here with a friend and her parents for a wedding weekend. The hotel was nicely remodeled and very clean. The restaurant was awesome with great views of the water. The food at the restaurant was FABULOUS! Everything about this place is great, price, location, food, and service!

We stayed in a king bed, river view room for one night at the beginning of our two week stay, and were so impressed that we are going back again tomorrow. Don't be fooled by the outside of this hotel. When we pulled up, we were a little skeptical as it looked rather outdated. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly and even asked what location we preferred for our room. The room was clean and beautifully updated, with extra amenities, such as facial cleansing cloths. The bed was very comfortable and the temperature of the room was easy to control. On top of all of this, we had a lovely gas fireplace, and a view to die for of the river. If you get a chance, check this place out!

Staff was so professional - the young woman at the desk could give classes in hotel hospitality. Rooms were clean, restaurant was a delight especially breakfast. What a treat!

Just came back from one night at the Best Western Hood River Inn on June 17, 2010. I can highly recommend this hotel. We stayed in a single queen bed room in the older wing. We had gorgeous Columbia River views. This wing has been completely remodeled. The room felt brand new. It was quite spacious with a table, chairs, sofa, queen bed, mini frig. The bathroom has been remodeled to have a European feel with low flow push button toilet, raised sink bowl on a granite counter, tile throughout the bath and a curved shower curtain rod for a roomier shower.

The complimentary full hot breakfast on their sunny, riverside deck was a treat. We also enjoyed the heated outdoor pool and jacuzzi.

Cross under the interstate to enjoy dinner in one of the many fine restaurants in downtown Hood River. And don't miss hiking or biking the Historic Old Columbia Gorge Highway Trail.
