“Comfortable and very friendly”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We stayed in the Hood river hotel for the third time now and we were always happy with our stay. It is in the middle of the very nice town of Hood River. Walking distance to everywhere you want to go in the evening. The rooms are very comfortable, the staff is very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is good and it is nice to sit outside in the morning, but also nice inside when it is cooler or too hot outside. I hope we will come back soon!

Room Tip: The courtyard room its small but very cozy and quiet. The riverside rooms are a little bigger than t...

My wife and I stayed here on a Saturday night on a beautiful June weekend. Checking in was very pleasant and the hotel staff was very nice. They encouraged us experience the old tyme elevator upstairs to our room, quirky fun! The moulding and trim in the hotel are beautiful, it's not Victorian fancy, but still nice to admire. The room was comfortable but it does have a lack of outlets, but then again, it's a historic hotel and not a modern hotel.

The location is right in the mix of things, bars, restaurants, coffee, and cyclists going out on rides.

Although I considered our stay pleasant, I can't say it was restful. The bar or bars next door got pretty rowdy and noisy. The manager told us that they actually called the cops because it was getting out of hand. It didn't quiet down until after 2:00am.

As some of the other reviewers commented, the hotel rooms are rather basic compared to many contemporary styled US hotels. However, the hotel is comfortable, well maintained, and reflects the effort that has been made to retain the historic nature while trying to provide the modern comforts that many travels have come to expect.

We stayed one night in a river view hotel on the 2nd floor. We did not notice any noise from the street or train that was bothersome for us (although we did use the A/C unit).

The staff was excellent - very friendly and helpful.

We will definitely look to stay here again the next time we are in Hood River.

This is a comparatively basic hotel whose location and service can't be beat. It is older and has the feel of a classic European hotel. With that said, the rooms are perfectly acceptable and the location places you right in the middle of everything Hood River has to offer.

To be fair, we stayed in a corner suite, which was huge and awesome, with a full kitchen, dining room, living room and gorgeous views. If it is available, absolutely book it. (It can sometimes be booked for $100, which is a steal.)

The hotel does not have any designated parking, which can be a bit of an issue. They offer a $10 breakfast voucher per room, but we chose the bagel place across the street instead. We'd absolutely stay here again and would do everything possible to arrange our stay to get the suite.

Room Tip: Splurge and get the suite if available. Suites with river views are popular for watching July4th fir...

By modern standards, this hotel is spartan. Our rooms were small with bathrooms fashioned (very well) out of the original closets. Sink in the room. Shower and toilet in the closet.
But it's not a modern hotel. That's the point. It is a wonderful old hotel that you can imagine travellers from 90 years ago stopping in on their way west. Breakfast was excellent in their downstairs cafe (for which a ten dollar voucher was provided).
Had a great night's sleep and enjoyed a fascinating hotel and town.

Quaint old hotel with old-fashioned elevator right on Oak St. Which means there were plenty of dining options. I got the $99 special offer which was nice. The woman at the front desk was friendly and helpful.

The people at the front desk are 11's out of 10. Each one during our 3 day stay was awesome. We had the big family suite...what a room! We have stayed in a smaller room, which was great too but this family suite was over the top. Things here are old, do keep that in mind but it is spacious, love having a kitchen and the view from all the windows is breathtaking. An incredible place to stay, didn't want to leave!
