We needed clean, quiet and comfortable, and reasonable and this motel accomplished almost all of these.

... of the old town, a viewing of the many lovely wall murals, a wine tasting at Sunshine Mill (where wheat was milled for 130 years before the old building was converted to a winery for Quenett (meaning 'steelhead') and Copa Di Vino wines), a delicious lunch of bouillabaisse, calamari and French onion soup at the circa 1876 Baldwin Saloon, and a visit to the excellent Columbia Gorge Discovery Center museum!
... to see one woman drinking a couple of glasses of wine while a man that came in ordered a glass of whiskey. We looked on each others and wondered if these guests didn't have any jobs and if they took the car home after finishing their drinks. I wouldn't be surprised if we got both guesses right. After haveing lunch we drove on and made a few more quick stops to snap some severly deteriorated old cottages before we finally arrived in ...
