My husband and I stayed here for one night in October 2009. We were touring the Columbia River Gorge and Mt. Hood areas. The Dalles was a little east of our route, but we wanted to see what was here. But to be honest, we didn't find much to see in the area. It was a quiet place for our night's sleep.
Our room had a view of the pool, the river, and the dam. The room was large, with a refrigerator and microwave. There were 2 sinks - one in the bathroom and one outside the bathroom. Made it nice for us to get ready to go quickly in the morning. A dishtowel was provided near the sink which was a thoughtful touch for keeping the counter dry.
Our beds were comfy and the bed linens were clean. I didn't care for the choice of TV channels which seemed very limited. Although the bathroom was clean, there was a good amount of wear on the walls and floor. The door to our room looked like it had been forced open at some time as the wood near the original lockset was torn up on the edge of the door. However, it seemed to lock securely.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
The hotel advertises a complimentary breakfast, which was actually a coupon to use for one of 3 entrees at their hotel restaurant. My husband and I both chose the ham, egg, and toast breakfast. We each commented that we would have preferred a 2nd piece of toast in exchange for half the huge slice of ham that we received. But you really don't get many choices with this kind of set-up. The breakfast waiter was extremely courteous, quick, and helpful.
This hotel was competitively priced. We had a comfortable, quiet night's sleep, and breakfast in the morning. This was a good hotel for traveling on a budget.
