“View of dam”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We had a one night stopover here to see the dam. Average size room with 2 double beds. Very clean. Adequate bathroom and tea/coffee in room. Unfortunately we have one grouch, the bed we slept in was not very comfortable and very squeaky springs, I woke up every time hubby turned over!! Debbie on reception very helpful with information.

Room Tip: Very close to dam. Laser show worth watching.

We only stayed one night, as we weren't sure there was a lot to do. This Inn was pretty well kept. Wish we got to use the pool and hot tub, but we'd rather see the sights. Room was pretty small though clean and well maintained. Restricting light in the room was a bit challenging. The location is absolutely awesome. You can walk to the dam and the light show, don't need to worry about parking.

Room Tip: Book well in advance

Very cute appearance from outside and well very maintained. Interior very old fashioned with very low ceilings but very clean. Gorgeous outdoor pool. Location absolutely superb for visiting Grand Coulee Dam. Staff friendly enough especially pool maintenance man who joined us for a swim!

Room Tip: Downstairs rooms much easier with cases

The Columbia River Inn is the best best to stay near the Grand Coulee Dam. There is nothing remarkable about it, but it is clean and comfortable. There is a shortage of place to eat in the area. But for breakfast and lunch, the R&A Cafe near the casino is a good bet. We had a nice lunch of chowder, sandwich and cole slaw for under five dollars each. Their breakfasts are a good value also.

The Columbia Inn is an alright place to stay at but I can't say it's excellent. Firstly there is not a whole lot of choice/competition in the area. The price you pay for what you get is not excellent. The rooms were clean I have to say that much. The AC worked and the Internet was fast.

The room itself felt like I was in a basement suite from the 70's. It looked like it was renovated by a handyman with few skills. Pine panelling on the walls, door trim that didn't fit right, home made closet doors etc. Everything in the room either creaked or squeaked. Doors, chairs, bed etc. The absolute worst pillows of my 14 day trip.

I certainly won't be returning to this area anytime soon and if I do it will be a day trip from somewhere with nicer accommodation and places to eat.

Not many hotels in the Grand Coulee dam area that you would want to stay at. This one was nicely located across the street from the Dam Museum and the Grand Coulee Dam. It was in great working order, very clean and the rooms were simple but nicely appointed.

First off, the lady with the "short hair and glasses" was wonderful!! She was very accommodating to myself, friend and triplet 2 year olds!! We did not have reservations, took a chance and she was able to give us the last 2 Queen size rooms. My children are very busy, but she took the time to watch them while we unpacked the car...what wonderful service!!! The rooms were lovely, and we would recommend this inn to anyone!
