Although beautiful inside, we felt duped. The pictures made the property look so tranquil. We were looking forward to somewhere serene to sit in the garden or on the balcony reading books. If that is what you want, do not stay here. VERY noisy given it sits right (and I mean right) off the freeway. None of the reviews we read on tripadvisor prior to our trip the beginning of July mentioned this not so small detail. No way to be outside without feeling you were in the middle of the freeway. We were assured on arrival the rooms were double insulated against freeway noise, but still could here it at night given our room was not on the gorge/river view like we'd hoped. Had to write a review so no one else was deceive.

Dear ldk19,

We are saddened to hear that you had a disappointing experience. Columbia Cliff Villas is known for offering a wide variety of rooms and suites, to match the needs and budgets of almost any traveler. Anyone who visits our website (vs. an online travel site) will always find complete and accurate details, pictures and floor plans of each room type. Most of our rooms and suites offer great views and complete isolation from any road noise, and all of our rooms were built with extra sound proofing measures. Some of our less-expensive options are exposed to the road. While most guests appreciate our convenient location and quiet rooms, light sleepers may still hear traffic in the back side rooms. We hope that you and other TA subscribers will take the time to call our friendly reservations team or visit our website to assure your next visit puts you in a room or suite that provides all the amenities and features you are seeking.
Happy travels,
Steve Tessmer, GM

Spent 2 nights during our Oregon vacation. Rooms are big, modern and very comfortable. Some units have river views while others face I-84. Since this is not a true hotel you won't find amenities such as restaurant, bar, lobby or pool but many eateries nearby. We liked everything about our stay but had to upgrade to not face the highway which is literally right next door.

Dear Qdog56,
Thanks for your patronage and comments. So glad you enjoyed your stay and that we had a view room available. To assure TA travelers find the accommodations that fit their needs and desires, we suggest a visit to the Accommodations page of our website to find complete information, photos and floor plans of our wide variety of rooms and suites. TripAdvisor photos show just how close we are to dining and spa services in the adjacent historic hotel building. It's hard to beat the views from the bridge that crosses the top of the 208' waterfall on your short walk to Simon's Cliff House restaurant. Guests usually find our on-site concierge will find them the best tables and restaurants in the area. We hope to see you again soon.
Happy travels,
Steve Tessmer, GM

This hotel has a beautiful view of the river from all directions. When we arrived, we looked out the window from our room to see a cluster of wind surfers out on the river and it was just gorgeous. The rooms are very well appointed and clean with many comfortable amenities (nice towels, bathrobes, full kitchenette with all utensils/cookware). The staff was very friendly and we love the location just one exit before the main part of town so it's not right in the downtown area and is really nice to return to for a quiet and relaxing stay. And it's in close proximity to a cluster of wineries as well. We also found that even though the property was quite full due to a wedding taking place that weekend, that we did not hear any noise from other guests. Would highly recommend booking directly on their website and checking out the special promotions that they have going on such as discounted rates and free wine tasting coupons with your stay!

My husband and I stayed in the Villa Suite last year. Although we are frequent travelers and users of trip advisor and yelp, I have failed to write reviews but have enjoyed using posted reviews. When I read a very negative review of this property, it prompted me to add mine. In my extensive travels, I have never found a world class hotel etc for $200/night. This property is NOT a hotel. It is BETTER. The views from our room of the Columbia were stunning. The furnishings were lovely with a balcony/patio with comfortable furnishings looking over the river. The descriptions and pictures of the rooms are very accurate. You will get what you pay for. The walk to the hotel next door is a pleasant addition and the food is wonderful. The train tracks run way below the cliff where it cannot be seen, but you can hear the wonderful muffled sound of the train--not enough to wake at night! You can see the trains on the other side of the river. You must remember how large this river is in this location. So enjoyable to watch the activity on the river, particularly the windsurfing. If you want very nice and differ in this area, this is the best place to stay!!!! I want more offerings like this..

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a river view. You will be glad you did.

Dear bobbied823,
Great to hear that last year's visit left you with so many positive lasting memories. As you discovered, Columbia Cliff Villas offers a wide variety of rooms and suites with convenient amenities. With a little research, savvy TA travelers will find great value on accommodations to suit their needs at several price points. Unlike some online travel sites, accurate pictures and information about each of our many offerings can be found on our website, along with special offers. Thanks again for making memories here - and for sticking up for us! Hope to see you again soon.
Sincerely,
Steve Tessmer, GM

April 28, 2013 was a magical day and the staff at the Columbia Cliff Villas hotel went out of their way to make it that way. My fiance and I enjoyed the "elopement package" which included a 2 night stay, champagne appetizers in the am for our 20 guests at the ceremony and fabulous customer service. We could arrange the large river view penthouse suite living room any way we wanted and they removed furniture that we didn't want. They exchanged TVs for our slideshow because I didn't care for the new larger one (which most people would love) and came to make sure all the sound equipment worked. It was the perfect site in the gorge for our small wedding.
They helped our special day to be stress free.
