“Riverview rooms in the Columbia Gorge”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Excellent place to stay for a day or two to visit the sights along the Columbia River (between east Portland and "The Dalles"). Nice small town, just a couple blocks to walk. River view rooms offer beautiful sunset experience over the peaceful Columbia River. Don't worry about the railroad right below; the rooms are obviously well insulated - we weren't bothered by noise at all.

Thank you for staying with and we are pleased that the rail system did not bother you, if I could move the tracks that run through the Gorge I would do it today. We invite you to return and stay with us again.

If you are traveling in the Columbia Gorge, you can't do better than this hotel. The location is breathtaking, the service is excellent, and the rooms are clean, well-furnished, and extremely comfortable. The delicious free breakfast is several steps above the usual free breakfast offering at hotels. Tips to get the most from your experience: Ask for a room with a river view on the 4th floor. And visit the little farmers market in the parking lot by the bridge: we enjoyed an amazing dinner of local smoked salmon and fresh local cherries on our bedroom balcony!

Have to say that the two desk clerks were the friendliest and most helpful ladies we come across on a long time. Rooms are very spacious and the river view is top notch. Next door to the Charburger for their breakfasts and dinner (chow-line style).

What a great experience at the Best Western, hotel is in a great location, with a super friendly staff. Everyone was so helpful with finding a place to eat. There are two restaurants within walking distance, one next door to the hotel. Rooms were fresh and updated with wonderful beds. I felt like we got a great value for the money.Would stay again

This hotel has million-dollar river views from the riverview rooms and the breakfast (restaurant) area. It is a little expensive for the average traveler just passing through, but definitely a must-stay location if you have some time to spend at the hotel and in the area. Beds are extremely comfortable, staff very friendly and helpful! The only improvement that they could make is expanding the breakfast selection, which is a little limited for an upper-scale hotel. This is due to the breakfast being served at the adjacent restaurant via voucher for CERTAIN menu items only (does not include juices et al, those are extra $$).

This hotel is located right on the river.... GREAT VIEWS!! The trains do run by every hour or so. Loved the historical museum. Great little town of Cascade Locks. Would definitely stay on this part of the river. We stayed the previous night in Hood River area.... not nearly as appealing.

I'm so glad we stayed here. The room was super clean, large and comfortable. We had a wonderful view of the Columbia river. Everything seemed new and well kept. The bed was really super. I think the nicest surprise was the breakfast. We had a voucher to take to the restaurant next door where we had a choice of several freshly cooked hot breakfast items. The restaurant also had a great river view. This is a very senic location.
The desk staff was very helpful in recommending dinner options. This Best Western definitely deserved the plus rating. The weather was cool enough so we could sleep without the a/c on, we had a peaceful sleep! Hope to return someday.
