    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Hood River Inn

    Pricey for what you get!

    from

    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.

    Nice hotel, loved the riverfront

    from

    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.

    If memory serves, we paid $99 for a room with two queen beds on the riverfront. I'd recommend this place to my friends and family. Hood River is a great town, also. Stop by!

    Nice Hotel

    from

    I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks on business last year.

    Dont stay in the car park view rooms - unless you want a view of cars all holiday! The rooms are really large - I guess standard USA rooms but mine had 2 double beds, a fridge, an ironing board and iron. The bathroom was fine - clean and tidy.

    The rooms that had a view of the river seemed to be a lot nicer so ask for one if you can.

    The restaurant was a bit strange - a collegue of mine had salmon and was ill the next day - dont expect anything too fancy - alot of the locals seem to come to it for sunday dinner. there are plenty of farnicer restaurants in Hood River so get out and enjoy them. I can recommend Six Street Dinner - we ate there a couple of times and had a great night. The poorhouse pub is excellent - the girl who serves in there was good fun and we had many a long night propping up the bar!

    Overall a pleasant experience but eat out and get a river view room!

    Very Nice!

    from

    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!

    Great Location

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Great hotel

    from

    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.

    In hot water - Not!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Columbia River Gorge again

    ... Fort Dalles military complex. It is one of Oregon's oldest museums. The museum opened its doors in 1905. There is a collection of pioneer and military artifacts and antique wagons.

    We then went to Big Jim's and ate ice cream. We traveled along the Columbia River Gorge again. This time the scenery is different. It is not the evergreen along the western portion of the gorge. It is barren and more desert appearing.

    ... the Sandy river. The platforms on either side of the river that would normally prop up the bridge were plainly visible. The bridge was, indeed, gone. There was a makeshift collection of logs and rocks that seemed promising, but it also meant that one slip could send you butt first in water, so we decided to do it the old school way - take off our shoes and socks and cross barefoot. It was almost like hiking in the Narrows... except this water (which ...

    ... hours later and just north east of Portland we found the Columbia River Gorge. This beautiful gorge boasts winding, tree lined roads which were frequented with stunning waterfalls. Multnomah Falls are 183m high and crossed by an intricate cement footbridge. The bridge leads to a trail to the top of the falls. There were several other falls which we stopped at briefly but the weather wasn't being ...

In the evening the theme is once again emptying the trash cans and toting the trash to the dumpsters. In between all of this we look for other things that need attention such as weeding the gardens, mowing lawns, blowing leaves, etc.

    Something new for us is the arrival of the fall salmon run. The fish have come home up the Columbia River, in to ...
