i had booked a cheaper room w/o microwave and fridge but was upgraded since there were vacancies the night i stayed there.
the room was totally wood-panelled and looked rustic. it was generally clean. there was a sink in the bathroom but no place to put a toilety bag down. the 2 stools at a countertop were higher than the countertop so there was really no place to sit. it was awkward to view the wall- mounted tv from the bed- there was no chair in the room to sit in. no ice machine.
as others have mentioned, there's a lot of highway noise during the daytime. i was able to sleep using earplugs.
i'd say the main reason to stay here is the price vs. paying huge resort prices at better hotels on mt. hood.

We had a very good experience there. It is very family friendly place that is a inexpensive alternative to the the larger hotels...all rooms included 27 premium movie channels for free. Good job guys!

At first this place seemed just right but after five minutes of having to listen to the owner scream at his wife it just went downhill from there. To the lady with the 5 small ankle biters that would not quit barking to the seedy looking stephen hawking guy chainsmoking cigs. Quiet no.... disturbing yes! Then there was the guy with the Hitler mustache stealing my cigarette butts from the ashtray in front of my door. All together this is not a place for families. I would have felt safer staying in the place where they filmed deliverance.

We came in and the room looked small, but very cozy. Upon further notice, however, we found old candy wrappers, used cough drops, and a REALLY old Dairy Queen ice cream cup under one of our beds that had turned into a FUZZY (moldy) scientific experiment.
From the beginning, the staff seemed nice and informative. We'd booked the place for 2 nites because we were told that it was in their policy that we HAD to book for no less than that amount, so we planned to pay for and stay for that amount of time for a wedding that was on the next nite @ Timberline Lodge. To our utmost surprise, upon arrival we were informed that they'd booked someone on the nite of the wedding that we'd be attending.... WITHOUT NOTIFYING US!!!!!!!!!! The attendant told us that the person most likely was an iffy customer and he would notify us that nite if the other customer was cancelling. They told us that the deadline was 9pm....we called at 9:15, giving them time to get their act together... they moved the time to 9:30 and we waited until 9:40 and the attendant moved the time to 10pm. At 10:10pm we called again and were told AGAIN that they moved the time of decision to 10:30, and we called them at 10:40 only to have them IGNORE OUR CALL!!!!!! WE CALLED AT 10:45 and were told that the room was most likely booked the next day, so we couldn't stay another nite. Mind you, this entire time, we were told that THEY WOULD CALL US, BUT WE HAD TO CALL AND ASK THEM, BECAUSE THE STAFF WERE AVOIDING THEIR DUTIES AND THEY NEGLECTED TO INFORM US ON THE STATUS OF OUR ROOM.
The next morning, we confronted them about the issue and asked why THEY DIDN'T COMPLY WITH THEIR OWN RULES AND BOOKED SOMEONE ELSE IN OUR ROOM RESERVATIONS.... the attendant/manager told us that there was MANY phone calls the days prior and that things got MIXED UP?! NO restitution was made, no apology was made on their end. In the end of the exchange of words, the attendant admitted to booking over us for a LOYAL customer and thought that it MEANT NO MATTER TO HIM!!!! Being a military family, we ended up having to go back home to post, which is OUT OF STATE.
IF YOU WANT TO HAVE GOOD SERVICE, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!!!! SAVE YOUR SANITY AND MONEY FOR SOMETHING THAT WON'T GET RIPPED OUT FROM UNDER YOU!

I did enjoy my stay. My room was rustic and has the mtn feel to it.
I enjoyed the selection of channels durning my evening hours of relaxation.
Though the amenties were sparse, the room was clean and comfortable. The sheets were crisp and white and the bedspread was fresh and clean.
Towels were clean and the bathroom was small but very clean and adequate.
The staff was very friendly and interesting to talk to.
The Location to Mtn Hood was convient for me.
There was road noise but not overwhelming for me.

I would ignore the review below saying horrible and fraudulent. Our experience was much more in keeping with the first review.

Good things:
Polite Staff; good location for getting to Mt. Hood skiing (we skied at Meadows) as all accomodation in Gov't Camp was fully booked; good convience store over the road; Ok restaurant over the road with better than expected food and super-friendly staff; fun 'hippy' bar (Skyway) 1 mile down the road; Decent satellite TV (had BBC America so we could watch the England rugby game).

What you might not like:
As per previous comments bathroom was dated at best, some may say grim, but that would be overstating things. Shower was functional, but small and dark! Wouldn't want to spend more than two nights here I'd say.

Pillows were slightly odd in that they seemed to have a waterproof case on them.

Right next to the highway and if you wake up it's really quite noisy with passing traffic. Makes it a touch hard to get back to sleep.

Checkout time is 10am, which frankly is ridiculous in my view.

Wasn't the cheapest ($100) given standard but probably more a function of fact that it was a Friday night and all accomodation up the mountain had already been taken.
