Room spacious, very clean, very good beds
Right in front of the window is a railway , all day and night long freight trains are running- also on the opposite side of the river !!! Ear plugs are supplied by the hotel - a bad joke.So called restaurant is rather a canteen.
The motel was perfect - no complaints. I didn't realize it would be a distance from Hood River. When I put in Hood River motels it came up, but didn't mention distance.
Large room, well laid out, with sufficient lighting (all too rare). The bed was very comfortable, firm enough for my back. The included breakfast was provided at restaurant next door, and while the choices were limited it was far better than average.
WiFi was rather weak in our room, and at peak time in the evening was excruciatingly slow.
rooms appeared clean & large enough
Hotel is located next to railroad tracks, can be noisy. We reserved King room away from tracks, got switched to 2 queen room next to the tracks when we checked in. Not a good experience. Free breakfast is served in restaurant next door, not in hotel.
Quiet, clean room. Comfortable bed. Free breakfast.
Not much in Cascade Locks.
All staff I came into contact with smiled and were helpful. The location is great for those who want to walk. The Historical Columbia River Highway State Trail is very close and you can walk to the Eagle Creek Overlook (about 2.5 miles one way).
Nothing to dilslike, but more to like. Breakfast next door at the restaurant was very good.
Great hot breakfast included at restsurant next door. Big room with microwave and refridge.
I couldn't get a room with 2 beds as those rooms all have river views but was able to get a rollaway and wasn't charged for it.
The bed was comfortable....I appreciated a micro and fridge.....The couch was also an added convenience....especially liked the great breakfast at the Charburger.
As we are aging, it would be nice to have a walk in shower or handles for greater safety when entering the tub.
Price, cleanliness and comfort of the rooms, the pool and spa, the friendliness of the staff, and the surrounding areas and views.
Would have preferred a continental type of breakfast in the hotel opposed to the vouchers for breakfast at the cafe next door. The cafe had gorgeous views and the staff were friendly as well, but I didn't like leaving the hotel for breakfast before 10 am.
Location was good for where I needed to go. The hotel was clean and the staff was helpfull
water was leaking from the vent in the pool area and the jets in the hot tub barely worked
You get to go to the restaurant to order hot breakfast
