Awesome views! Easy to walk to town to enjoy brewery and delicious dining in town. Clean enough, with fridge and microwave, we had a great stay and the price was right. Just ignore the old, negative reviews. This is a good place to stay and much better than our customary motel 6 and 8.

Best price in town with an incredible, and I mean INCREDIBLE, view. Bed, TV, shower, it's all you need in this beautiful little town. I'll be back for sure. A short walk to the town center, a very friendly residential manager.

This little roadside motel is the perfect place on a budget! It has a beautiful view of the river and mountains looking onto the Washington side of the river, great view of Mt. Adams in the morning. Walking distance to downtown, the hospital, one block up there is a fantastic coffee shop, and a little diner directly across the road.... More

It's a basic roadside motel (think the glory if the 50's and 60') not too clean, not too dirty. Amazing view of Mount Hood from the room. Sink in the room (over carpet :-(. Dark shower and toilet in separate room. Friendly and helpful residential manager (owner?) Great breakfast/lunch restaurant across the corner (also with great view)! Fridge in room.... More

We stumbled on this cool motel. Awesome river view. We loved the location. Suited us budget travelers for two nights while enjoying Hood River. We had two double beds. Two adults and two kids. Easy walk to town. Breaky across the road.

I'm glad I did not read the reviews before going to this hotel because that would have definitely changed our mind about staying there so first off, I will say the management has definitely changed. There is absolutely no drunks or naked people there, I am sorry for anyone that had to experience that. Second, we went on a little... More

I based my stay on the price and location (fairly inexpensive and not too far away from downtown). I probably should have found another place. It is run-down with my room needing everything from new flooring to drapes to linens. Yeah, it was a few bucks less than some of the competition, but I'll be for a few dollars more... More

What a nice, clean hotel that takes dogs!! I had just totalled my car on I 84, and needed a place to stay the night. The family that ran the place could not have been nicer, letting me borrow their phone numerous times (mine was trashed in the river) and making contacts to get back to my home in WA.... More
