Hood River is our go-to weekend destination, and we have stayed at the Vagabond Lodge about 5 times. The rooms are well appointed, clean, quiet, and comfortable. As we have 3 small children, we stay in a suite overlooking the river. LOVE the separate bedroom for the kids, the awesome balcony, the great in room amenities (my wife especially likes...

What a treat to discover the Vagabond Lodge. We knew we were in for something special when two days before our reservation we received a call from the Lodge asking if we had any special needs they could take care of! We said a pillow that was firm would be great and sure enough when we arrived we had firm...

Thanks very much for your review, glad you had a wonderful time! There's a lot we do here that has carried through the years from when my grandparents started the hotel, and some new great things we've added. I'll get some more cedar like those planter boxes you saw and build some more picnic tables and Adirondack chairs for everyone...

We stayed here late one night and leaving early on a business trip. We stayed in a non view room (which we accepted for the price of $85) and in the older section of the hotel. The rug definitely could use a makeover, but the room was very clean and had everything you would want or need. It had a...

Thanks much for your review! Yes, our Classic rooms get some road noise because they're closest to the road. We Also have earplugs available, just in case anyone needs some or forgets theirs at home. We'll be making even more improvements around the grounds and in the rooms as well. Thanks again!

Views are fabulous from the comfy rooms. Little dated but clean. Landscaping was under construction but still enjoyable. Next time will take advantage of fire pit area. Appreciated having the large fridge and table space for our breakfasts and snacks.

This motel is very old, but has added a new building recently. We stayed in the new building. Very large room with very large bathroom. Balcony facing the inner courtyard area.

We had an upstairs room by the river and oh what a view it was! On our first day we saw a bald eagle, on our last we saw an osprey, and in between I was fascinated by the gorgeous scrub jays and perky wrens. Our room was huge and so very comfortable, I didn't expect to have such a...

From the moment we entered the property we knew it was the rustic yet comfortable lodging we wanted. different from adjoining properties in that the new landscape was in keeping with surroundings & areas more 'sequestered'.
