This is my 3rd stay here, and I love it. It's an amazing value. I always get a room with a view of the river, and a balcony. I love sitting on the balcony in the morning. The windows have screens, and can be opened to get fresh air. The rooms are clean, and the housekeeping staff is very nice....

Thanks for staying with us! We'll always have something new for our guests to enjoy, and will keep on making improvements throughout the property! I'm also working on getting together some of the old pictures together with the old signs from when my grandparents started the hotel; hopefully I'll have that ready for to see next time. Thanks again!

The folks that own/run the lodge are very helpful and easy going. The views of the river are great, the grounds are well kept with flowers and picnic tables overlooking the river. The A/C didn't work well, could be pretty hot in the room during the summer months. We have stayed before and would stay again.

Thanks for your review! We'll have that AC checked and ready to go so there will be plenty of cool air in case it gets a bit too warm sometime this summer. Thanks letting us know and glad you had a nice visit with us!

We stayed in a king room with a River view. We were on the east corner of the building so it was very private and quiet. It had an unbelievable view. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly; they even called the day before our stay to see if we needed anything. Most lodging in Hood River seemed...

Second time we've stayed here. And will again. The views are gorgeous; rooms are comfortable and clean. The 'event area' outside is manicured and terraced ... ideal for a wedding with the beautiful river as a backdrop. The other part of the grounds are in transition with a huge treed picnic area and playground area. A new building of rooms...

Thanks much for your review! Yes, binoculars are a great idea for bird-watching or windsurfer-watching, especially when the eagles are circling above the river. Like our courtyard you noticed, we'll keep making more improvements throughout the property so there will be even more spaces to enjoy. Thanks again!

We stayed recently to check it out for our June 2017 family reunion. The rooms were great and the grounds will be a fun and beautiful place for the family to hang out. We were very impressed with Roger, the general manager. The Columbia Gorge and Hood River Valley are loaded with activities and scenery we can't wait to share...

Friendly front desk, clean, conveniently located to shops, restaurants, and mountain biking. Great value, pet friendly rooms, right near the river, absolutely not complaints. Would definitely stay again.

I can't say enough nice things about our stay at the Vagabond Lodge in Hood River. My friend and I were on an extended road trip in Oregon and Washington, and decided to stay a couple of nights in the area. I stumbled upon the VL on Trip Advisor, saw some quality reviews, and pulled the trigger. We are so...

Thanks much for your review, glad you had a great time visiting us! Yes, some of the hikes in our area can be a challenge, but we agree they're all definitely worth it for the views or waterfalls! A great thing is that there are so many hikes to choose from at all skill levels around Hood River. Please do...

Decided last minute to stop in Hood River during a road trip along the gorge. We liked it so much we wanted to stay a second night but the hotel we were at did not have any rooms available for us to extend our stay. A couple other hotels in town had rooms, but for way more than we wanted...

Thanks for your review, glad we could accommodate you for your bonus day in Hood River! Yes, our original building built by my grandparents and opened back in '54 has retained the style of the era over the years. We've grown since then with our newest building opening a couple years ago, and we've been updating the buildings to keep...

At first I was impressed with the grounds and the view and VERY surprised at the location for the price. It's right next door to the Gorge Hotel and the Vagabond landscaping and forest area are just as nice in my opinion. You can't beat this price for the location. This place would be ideal for a wedding or event...
