... Although they were mostly quiet at night, they started right up again at dawn, or before. Still, believe it or not, I got used to them after a couple of days and slept right through. Alan wasn’t as lucky.
As mentioned, the waterfalls in this gorge are not to be missed and there is a special section of road that takes you to several of the best. Good for us that some noble citizens donated land in the waterfall area to the public ...
... truffle pizza, it was huge and plenty for the three of us! Beyers had a really strong beer that was like 9.4% and I had something a little lighter, a wonderful first taste for what was yet to come!
Full and a little tipsy we sped over to the next brewery, Full Sail, here you can take a free tour and even get a free beer glass at the end! After exploring the factory floor we tried a taster selection of beers they make. Yummy but now getting tipsier!! Pfriem Family ...
world, I don't ski. I tried “I don't know how” and “I don't
want to” and “I don't like the cold” but Guy and the boys shot
those down easy. I tried “It's too expensive” but Guy had a plan
for that, too. Luckily he was flummoxed when I said “Why don't you
just write me a check for the money I would have spent if I went
skiing, and I'll stay home?” That bought me enough time to make ...
... and rain begins, not much at first but then harder and harder, and thunder booms and then rain turns to hail the size of bowling balls and pummels my boys on their little necks, shoulders and arms, (my boys who are already suffering from malnutrition because I brought the wrong food, but who have been gamely struggling forward anyway because they don't want to complain); and when a lightening bolt hits Toby's bicycle and zaps ...
... I have to be careful where I go. Many of the walks are wide enough to vacuum but don't always stay that wide or comes to a stairway or a narrow pedestrian bridge. I manage to get into a couple of situations where I must back out. Backing is harder than I anticipated because there are no side view mirrors to assist me. Thankfully, I manage to escape from these areas unscathed. Whew, how embarassed would I be if this retired big rig driver needs ...

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.
