... guilt. Unlike frosting. Frosting usually requires a ton of butter and I never throw a batch out, no matter how bad, because after committing $3 worth of butter to a recipe, I just can’t let go. Plus I’ve found that if I keep adding powdered sugar, most any frosting will agree to glue itself to a cake eventually. At least to the top of a cake and especially if I keep it out of direct sunlight. And who ...
... We decided to head to Lost Lake, 3100 ft up the slopes of Mount Hood. The Native Americans called this lake "heart of the mountains". The 20-mile drive took us deep into Mt Hood National forest, where we were soon devoured by gorgeous fall colors on all sides. It was as if someone splattered yellow, red and green with a paint brush all around. It was the most gorgeous drive yet, even better than the Historic Columbia ...
... back to the Pacific Crest Trail and the return to the trailhead. This part of the hike was the most beautiful. The proximity to the creek meant green, lush, mossy surroundings dotted with red and yellow-colored trees; a big cliff stood guard on the other side. It felt like another world.
By the time we got back to the trailhead, we could feel the 7-mile round trip in our legs, but we had just enough daylight left to take a crack at a shorter, ...
... VERY DARK in that blasted room. Inside the dimly lit freezer room is a 15 watt light and a switch with which to turn on that dim bulb but you had better get that light turned on before that big door closes. That room turns into a cave in no time flat!
I hear you asking what happens to the bagged fish and how can the sturgeon eat those fish while in a plastic bag. After the fish is frozen solid in those bags the fun begins. Take a couple of bags out of the freezer ...
Today, we spent the day touring the fruit loop. The fruit loop is a 30 mile loop with many fruit orchards and flower farms. We picked and ate cherries, blueberries, apricots, and peaches. We also tried dozens of handmade jellies, preserves and mustards. Many of these orchards make their own hard cider, beer, or wine. We were also in time for the lavender festival with live music and local art venders. We are now heading back to the tent tired and stuffed, but very ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Hood River Inn
Pricey for what you get!
The room was clean and large and the view from the more expensive balcony room was wonderful, but you can get the view by walking along the riverfront behind the hotel before it gets dark!
I agree with a previous poster about the strange noises made by the traffic crossing the adjacent bridge,it was somewhat irritating!
The hotel is bland. It is pricey because of the town it's located in-- or rather just outside of.
There is no breakfast included, unlike at many other BW properties.The restaurant is expensive and mediocre.
I have no complaints about my stay but no raves either.
I paid around $110 including tax on a weekday in October.
We stayed here on our way from Portland after a day of sightseeing along the Columbia River Gorge. We spent the extra $20 on a riverfront room on the ground floor, which I would definitely recommend doing. I would have liked to have been up higher, but the riverfront was definitely worth the extra $20. The rooms were clean, the outdoor pool and whirlpool was very nice, and the desk staff was mostly very accomodating and pleasant (there was one mean-looking college-age blond with an attitude about my children...we avoided her). We ate dinner at the Copper Salmon around the corner and cannot say enough about how accommodating and awesome that place was. I was surprised and disappointed that there was no free breakfast at the hotel - there was a restaurant on the premises, though.
This place is Very Nice! My wife and I stayed in a riverfront,fireplace suite. I paid $125.00. The view was great. The room was large and the balcony came in handy for a quick cigarette. The staff was friendly. And the 50% off second dinner and breakfast coupons made for a good value. The restaurant is well above average considering it's in a chain hotel. I'd stay here again!
Just stayed one night in October 2004 and it was everything I expected. I had a river-front room with an open patio on the first floor. The view was great. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful.
A great hotel right on the river!
This hotel is great! We selected it based off of other's positive reviews. Our room was right on the river, it was spacious, clean & comfortable. The staff was very down to earth & friendly. The food in the restaurant was incredible. They had a great stay & ski promotion.
Our luck with the snow at Mt. Hood wasn't quite as fortunate, but want to come back in the summer time.
Hood River Lodging and Skiing at Mt. Hood
The Skiing at Mt. Hood was wonderful and my teens enjoyed snowboarding. Therer were no lift lines and lots of nice people.We stayed at the Best Western Hood River Inn in Hood River. The hotel was clean and the restaurants were good but the much advertised indoor pool was empty and the Jakuzi was disgusting. Worst of all, the hotel is located near a bridge that makes a very loud whining noise every time a car crosses over it. No kidding, it sounds like cats dying every time a car crosses and a lot of cars cross. This is not an easy sound to go to sleep to! It's such a long drive from Hood River to Mt. Hood-45 min. or more if the roads are bad. While we had a great time, I'll ski elsewhere next time.
We stayed here on our first anniversary and had a wonderful time watching the river change colors throughtout the day. The view is incredible and the rooms are clean, comfortable, and best of all, affordable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Stopped in to see about a room on Sep 26, and took one of the last rooms available. Beautiful riverview and one of the largest rooms I have ever seen! Hotel was sold out for the 27th, but we put ourselves on a wait list to see if anything would open up. Much to my surprise, there was no hot water the next morning - a boiler blew up! I was told that a repair man was on his way and to hold off for an hour or so. The problem was not resolved and we could not get a room for the evening - so we had to check out without the benefit of a shower... this presented a real problem since we were off to a wedding and wanted to look our best... the management apologized, but never offered to give us an option to resolve the problem...... Given my years in customer service, I would have offered a late check out hoping that the water problem would be resolved. I felt the staff did not really care about us, and in this day and age - customer satisfaction is everything... if you want to stay in business - or have repeat business
Comfotable rooms with private deck and great river view
My wife and I stayed here March 29,booking through expedia.com we booked for $69 an exceptional value. We went on the dinner train in Hood River that offered wonderful scenery and exceptional food. There was also a mystery play on board the train which was very entertaining and highly recommended. The Resturaunt next to the hotel offers good food and excellent views of the Columbia River. Hence, we had a memorable weekend. We lucked out on weather,temperatures in the 70's in March.
