“Unexpected Luxury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

On check in, things were a bit delayed but the lobby was clean and modern, staff was friendly. Our room was in the newly renovated third floor area and it was immaculately clean with a beautiful view of the Columbia River. There are nice touches in the room like bathrobes, house slippers, and a clean remote control. The bathroom is very nice, way beyond a normal Best Western. The outside of the hotel does not hint at how beautiful the rooms in the newly renovated area are. And breakfast was hot and cooked to order. Although it's not in the center of Hood River, with a car, this is a great place to stay. The Assistant Manager was especially attentive and asked when he saw us the next morning how we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: If you are willing to spend a little extra, stay in the newly renovated 3rd floor area. The rooms on...

This was one of the nicest hotel rooms we stayed in on our trip. The decor was beautiful, the view was amazing, the bed nice and comfy. The place was clean and looked in great condition. The pool and hottub were excellent. We were in the east wing on the second floor, and my only complaint was that we didn't have a balcony. I expected one from the room descriptions, but alas, there was none. Also, some people have complained in other reviews that the east wing is noisy because it's close to the highway, but we didn't notice any traffic noise during our stay. My biggest problem with our stay, and this has nothing to do with the hotel itself, was about the restaurant. The service sucked at dinner time, and for our "free" breakfast, we were served runny scrambled eggs that were too gross to eat.

Dear chanmight, Thank you for your kind and fair review. I am so pleased you enjoyed the pool facility, your room decor and the amazing view. As you stated we do have some rooms, actually 18 of the 82 on the river side of the property without patios and decks. We will use your review as a training tool and do better communicating this difference to future guests.

We apologize for the slow service in the restaurant Saturday night and for your breakfast eggs not being prepared properly. I have shared your comments with our chef and restaurant manager.

We look forward to welcoming you back sometime soon!

My husband I stayed here for one night last weekend. We loved the hotel! We stayed on the ground level of the east wing and the view of the water was great. Our room had sliding glass doors that opened right onto the lawn. It looked like the top, third story had balconies and the second story had no outdoor access. The room seemed recently updated and I liked the decor. We were right next to the entrances, vending machines, and stairs, but the walls were thick and we didn't hear much. We used the pool, which was nice, but definitely overrun with children, which is to be expected at this time of year. The complimentary breakfast was good the next day too. They give you a voucher for certain meals in the restaurant and we sat on the deck, right on the water. It was windy but warm and our server was friendly. The hotel is a little far from the downtown area of Hood River, so we drove into town, but there are stores and food located right next to the hotel if you don't want to venture out. I think the view makes the distance totally worth it. This was a great stay and we definitely hope to be back!

Room Tip: View is worth the extra money!

We booked this hotel for a one night, quick get-a-way. I was a little skeptical with it being a Best Western, but dont let the name fool you. This hotel approaches the caliber of the Oxford in Bend Oregon. We stayed in the East Wing which was very nice and newly renovated. I sprung for the extra couple of bucks to have a river view, and it was so worth it. The complimentary breakfast was a real meal and not "make your own waffles from a foam cup". The food was great and the service was great as well. The room was light and airy, the bed was super comfortable, the bathroom and shower were great and roomy, and the whole hotel was very clean. After leaving Hood River my wife realized that she had left her phone charger in the room. I used that as an excuse to go to Best Buy with her to hunt around for something that I "could not live without" and wrote off the charger as lost for good. The next day while at work I got an email from Raquel the Executive Assistant from the Best Western in Hood River saying that they had found my wife's cell phone charger and asked if we wanted it back. I replied yes and Raquel said that she would pop it in the mail. Two days later the charger showed up in the mail. That is phenomenal customer service as I am concerned, and service that I feel in these times has fallen by the wayside. I cant wait to stay there again. I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Stay in the East Wing on the river side.

My family took a trip around Oregon. This hotel stood out in terms of value, quality, and location. We spent twice as much elsewhere for hotels not nearly as nice. I would recommend it highly.

Room Tip: The river view is lovely.
