HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 September 2016

Location: We picked this hotel because of its proximity to many great hiking trails along the Columbia Gorge. It is located yards away from the Bridge of the Gods, which means there is easy access to hikes on both the Washington and Oregon sides of the gorge. It is about a 15 min. drive from the Multnomah Falls and a...

My hope for humanity has been restored...at least for a night...t's been quite some time since I have had an experience where the WHOLE staff was pleasant and inviting. Sad but true...it's not as easy to find as it once was. The almighty dollar has taken it's toll and people just don't genuinely care about being pleasant to one another...

Overall a very comfortable and well run hotel. Outstanding view rooms -- a little noise distraction from nearby train but not too bad. Great complimentary breakfast in restaurant next door. Definitely recommend this hotel.

I am pleased you enjoyed your stay with us thank you. We are so very lucky to be right on the banks of the Columbia River. I wish I could move those tracks out of The Gorge, I am glad the trains did not bother you much. I hope you return to the area and invite you to stay with...

Stayed one night, staff was very pleasant and the room was nice. The complimentary breakfast at the lodge next door was the best ever free breakfast sitting right above the Columbia River with the Bridge of the Gods in view was amazing. Overall a very good Hotel, I'll definitely stay again when I get the chance.

This is a great hotel for train watching! The trains run on both sides of the river so it is great for pictures! There is a nice place to buy smoked fish and salmon chowder next to the hotel. The outlets are about 1/2 hour a way and are convenient to visit on the way home.

Thank you for staying with us while in Historic Cascade Locks. I am pleased you found The Brigham Fish Market, this market is owned and operated by a great Native American family here in town and they have excellent food. I hope you find your way back to the Gorge and we invite you to stay with us again.

Best Western was a wonderful weekend getaway for us. You are able to be out of the hustle and bustle of Portland, but it is an easy drive to get there. You can get to all the local attractions very easily. It is a great central location for all the things you could possibly want to do.

The room was very clean and comfortable. Had a great view of the Hood River. Couldn't get connected to the internet. Breakfast was next door, not in the hotel.
