Amtrak to Hood River?

Amtrak to Hood River?

Hi Everyone,

I'm planning to stay in Hood River for two nights between Christmas and New Year's Day and have a reservation at the Best Western. I would love to take the train from Portland to Hood River but am having a really hard time figuring out how to manage the ground transportation between the train station in Bingen, Washington and the hotel. The taxi service in town doesn't seem reliable and I would hate to get stuck missing our 8 am train back to Portland for new year's eve.

I'd love to know if anybody else has done this, has input on whether it's safe to count on the taxi pickup and drop off arrangements, or any other suggestions about alternatives to driving between Portland and Hood River.

Your best bet would be to drive. Parking is free.

Hi Portland Anna,

Good for you to jump in. Seems like it may be good idea for Best Western to run a shuttle to train station, on call. you might find a whole new set of clients.
