A very nice hotel with an excellent view of the river. The staff was responsive and friendly. The hotel had all the standard extras (pool, fitness center). There was also a free breakfast at the restaurant next door. The only issue is that there are train tracks on both the hotel side and opposite shore of the river. Trains run all day and into the night; I believe the earliest woke me at 5AM.
This is a great place to stay if you are visiting Multmonah Falls as it is located close by but away from the crowds and traffic. Unfortunately at the time of our visit, Oregon had just lifted covid regulations two days prior and most restaurants were closed for dinner by 6p.m. We ended up having to purchase our makeshift dinner from the corner Columbia Market-- a croissant sandwich and a chef salad. Unfortunately the reservation clerk at the Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn did not offer us any advice where we could have dinner--as we heard from another person staying at the Best Western Plus that we could have paid the bridge toll of $2.00 and head to Stevenson for a nice dinner. Breakfast was included in the daily rate- it was made to order at the Bridgeside Dining which was conveniently located right next door. A definite nice breakfast of your choice- which included eggs, sausage, pancakes, and more. The rooms were good size and clean. A bit steep in price because of the popularity of Multomah Falls.…
Excellent stay. The rooms were clean and the river view rooms had a phenomenal view! There were trains frequently going by the hotel, but that didn't bother me or disrupt my sleep. The hotel does provide ear plugs in the rooms if you are sensitive to noise. Overall, I'd highly recommend this hotel and location. I would absolutely stay here again if I had the choice.
We were so looking forward to staying here again. At first, everything was great, the people at the front desk were friendly and helpful, and we loved sitting out on our deck and watching the boats on the river. They had a nice area to walk around with a dog. We loved hearing and watching the trains, also. Unfortunately, the next morning, one of us woke up with hard, red, itchy bites- bedbugs! We have had previous experience with bedbugs, and know what the bites look like. As soon as we arrived home we fumigated our suitcases, and washed all our clothes, and are still worried that we could have brought these critters home with us. For that reason, only giving 3 stars,
This day was absolutely perfect every employee was super friendly and went above and beyond. My airlines lost my luggage and every single employee there did whatever they could to try to make the situation better. Additionally the views were amazing the food at the restaurant next-door was really good. The hotel is in walking distance to several trails and driving distance to lots of fun activities probably one of the best hotel experiences I have had
This is the perfect spot to rest for the day after exploring the Columbia River Gorge. Be sure to spend a little extra for the 2nd story balcony room overlooking the Columbia River and Bridge of the Gods. This is also along the Pacific Crest Trail Trailhead and many weary hikers take advantage of this oasis along the grueling trail. Bonus to travelers is the incredible breakfast at Bridgeside Restaurant.
Our 1st real trek since 2019 & pandemic era! We are "elderly" by most standards and find that peace/quiet/cleanliness and hospitality to be very soothing at the end of a long driving day. We found all of that at the Columbia River Inn in Cascade Locks, Oregon. We had just completed reading a book written by a hiker of the Pacific Crest Trail, whose destination was the "Bridge of the Gods" in Cascade Locks. Well, we'll never hike, but we would return to the area for rest and relaxation and enjoy our accommodations at this very inn. You should think of it too!! Use it as a hub to explore the Columbia Gorge area. I don't think you'll regret it.
Very nice hotel. We got a room with a balcony on the upper floor. The view was amazing. We watched the trains, tug boats, and the steam wheeler pass by all evening. Highly recommend this hotel! Others have commented in reviews that the trains passing disturbed their sleep. I did not have that issue. I loved watching them during the evening and room was quiet enough that I slept great. Bed was very comfortable and room was clean. Breakfast is served at the restaurant next door. Excellent choices were provided for free with the hotel voucher. Other options were available if desired. But the free choices were more than needed and very delicious. Excellent stay. I will definitely stay here again if in the area.
I stay here everytime I have to go to Portland. While it is a drive to Portland, I love the peaceful location and it is a very quiet property from my many experiences over the last 4 years staying here. The train is soothing to me. But they provide ear plugs. I love getting a balcony room. It is worth it to me. And I bring my dog and the pet area is very accommodating. Only issues is Cascade Locks is very small and amenities are lacking, dining not open during certain times/season etc. But these are not issues for me. I bring food if I know dining isn't open etc. Rooms have fridges and microwaves. Comfortable beds, politie and accommodating staff everytime I have stayed.
Convenient location for visiting the gorge. Hotel was very clean and breakfast was amazing in the restaurant next-door. We loved our view of the river and the bridge. I would definitely stay here again if in the area.
