The Cascade Motel came up on my GPS when I used it to search for lodging while visiting the Columbia River Gorge in early June 2014. I had never heard of it before, but gave it a try. It proved to be a good choice and pleasant surprise: an old-fashioned motel of individual cottages, in a nice neighborhood, at a very reasonable price. My cottage had a full kitchen with dishes, stove, fridge and microwave. The two modern upgrades, wifi and cable TV, worked well. I met the owners, a young married couple, very pleasant people working hard to make a go of it in the best American Way tradition. In sum, not fancy but fully adequate and very pleasant. Especially good for couples who want an "It Happened One Night" kind of experience.
