"Spectacular views of the Columbia River Gorge"

07/11/2018

Wonderful location, comfortable rooms, fantastic complementary breakfast and fun places to visit nearby. The Columbia River Gorge, Pacific Crest Trail and the Bridge of the Gods all right there. Marine Park with sternwheeler within walking distance. Mount Hood within an hour drive. Loved it.

Hotel is lovely, rooms and grounds are very clean. Staff is very nice. I just wish website mentioned the trains that run all day and night, right outside the rooms, on the river side of the hotel. You can definitely hear then in the rooms. Noise wasn't too bad, and hotel thoughtfully provides earplugs, but still would have liked to know this when looking for somewhere to stay in Columbia gorge. I'd stay here again, but it's the kind of thing that I would have liked to know ahead of time.

The hotel is very clean and well maintained. The room was very comfortable and clean. The staff were all very friendly and professional. The breakfast included in stay was provided at the restaurant next door and was very good. We had dinner there the night before and it was also very good. We did not have a river view room but the view from the hotel is fantastic.

My wife and I were on a driving holiday from Australia, and we had organised our accommodation before we left. We are so glad we picked the Best Western Columbia River Inn. Both Cascade Locks and the hotel were great places to stay. From when we arrived, to when we left, we knew this place was special. Reception staff were professional, efficient and courteous, and the location of the hotel was exceptional. Right on the banks of the Columbia River with great views of the bridge and the surrounding mountains. We sat out on the communal patio and had a lazy drink looking at the scenery and the sunset. What a way to end the day. It would have been nice to have a balcony from our room. I would have enjoyed the balcony more than the spa. But that is only a minor issue. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We had dinner and breakfast at the Cafe next door, which also had outstanding views. Overall, we really enjoyed the hotel and surrounds, and in hindsight would have liked to have stayed a extra night, but we had so much to see and so little time to visit it all.

We stayed here one night and the staff, Tammy & John, were incredibly helpful and friendly. We had a corner room that looked out onto the Columbia River and you could see The Bridge of the Gods also. The breakfast was made to order from the restaurant next door, which was delicious! The train goes by just below the hotel but it was not loud. If it does bother anybody, they actually have earplugs in the room just in case. NOT a problem!

Sandy P, General Manager at Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn, responded to this review

This hotel sits high atop the river giving a great view of the river and the Bridge of the Gods. There are two very busy train tracks below the river view room. Don't worry you are supplied with ear plugs just in case the trains are to load. We wasn't bothered by the noise. There are some very nice hiking trails nearby.

We booked a few nights at the lodge across the river. We came out early and needed a room for the night. The staff was extremely friendly and helped me figure out the best and most economical way to book (through a 3rd party website or directly through them). Checking in was so fast. We got to our room and ordered food from the restaurant. The room was huge and overlooked the river and the Bridge of Gods. I wish we had stayed there our entire vacation!!!

This hotel is very nice. Looks as though it was built recently. The view of the Columbia River behind the hotel was gorgeous. The breakfast was next door at a restaurant, so it wasn't the fun-of-the-mill lobby breakfast. I would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Very friendly staff and best view on Columbia River gorge. Perfect location.The only downside is some noise from nearby railway, but staff gives you earbuds for convenient sleep at night. The restaurant they partner with also has beautiful views on the bridge of gods a d river.

Sandy P, General Manager at Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us while visiting the Gorge. We are pleased you enjoyed the view. I hope the track on both sides of the river did not give you to much trouble. We hope you to return to the area and invite you to stay with us again.

One of the nicer Best Western's I've stay at. Recently refurbished and our very clean and good-sized room was like new with granite vanity and bar top (with mini-sink, microwave, and refrigerator), a new and quiet Amana AC unit under the window, nice linens and towels, a large HD flat screen (with real HD, not shrunk to fit like some other BW's), and very comfy king-sized bed similar to a pillow top. We did not pay extra for the river view and didn't miss it - there's nice patio off the back to relax and enjoy the view. Breakfast is actually served off property at a restaurant next door and made to order(!) No "pre-fab lobby eggs" like some of the other BW's I've stayed at. Overall, a great stay, thanks.

Hotel staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the area especially John who gave us great tips for local hikes. Our room was on the river side which gave us a great view of the river and the “Bridge to the Gods”. I would suggest asking for a river view room with a balcony.

Sandy P, General Manager at Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us while touring the Columbia River Gorge. I will pass your nice comment onto John. I hope you can return to the area and we invite you to stay with us again.

Stayed here in 2006, and now 12 years later, came back to stay here again. Both times, great experience. Beds very comfortable, plenty of room, very clean. Staff is always very friendly and helpful. Had a reservation and when I arrived to check in, they said, "we were expecting you" and had everything already out and ready to go. Check in was smooth and fast, same with express check out. Breakfast was also included, and not some cheesy continental breakfast, it was full breakfast at the neighboring restaurant which was also very good and at about a $50.00 value, makes the price of the room seem very reasonable. With a view of the river and the bridge of the gods, you would be hard pressed to find a better place to stay in Cascade Locks. We will be back, just hope it takes us less than 10 years to make it.

Sandy P, General Manager at Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn, responded to this review

My partner and I enjoyed our stay at BW Plus hotel. This is our first time staying at a Plus hotel. The hotel was in a perfect location. You get an awesome view of the Columbia River and the famous Bridge of God's seen in the movie "Wild", starring actress Reese Witherspoon. BW Crews here are awesomely helpful and friendly. The front desk recommended to eat next door called Bridgeside Restaurant. It was conveniently located in walking distance. The restaurant was excellent place for dinner for our first day there. You get a wide range of food to choose from. Thank you front desk for giving us discount coupons for there. The next morning, we ate breakfast there complementary for hotel guests. Again, it was excellent! Both times we sat by the window and get an awesome view of the river as well the bridge. Come early to get the best table with a mouth dropping view! We will definitely come back to this hotel again hopefully soon. Save our room with a five star view!

"Full immersion in PNW wxperience: Top notch hospitality"

20/08/2018

From the first step in BW Plus Cascade Locks we got a sense of the natural beauty, history and culture of the area of the Columbia Gorge. The friendly staff suggested hikes (so many available), museums, fishing and river excursions, places to cycle, dine, wine taste and explore. The grounds and views from the room aree xquisite framed by Bridge of the Gods and the deep gorge topography. Each change of time from dawn to sunset, to dark gave an entirely different personality to the Columbia River. We enjoyed the outdoor seating, enjoying a glass of wine or cup of coffee immersed in feeling "like a local."

Sandy P, General Manager at Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your lovely comments about the Gorge and for staying with us. I am so pleased you "got" the experience of the National Scenic Area. I hope you can return to historic Cascade Locks and we invite you to stay here again.

We were taking a cruise in Cascade Locks and this was a great place to stay. It is somewhat less expensive than the options in Hood River. The handicap room was well equipped with lots of space to move around. The bathroom was adequate for someone in a wheelchair. You get a voucher for breakfast at the restaurant next door where you get to order off a menu. This was a really good breakfast.

We've been here before and I did a review a few years back, so I won't dwell on the obvious things that don't change, like the beautiful location, awesome views and the trains. We enjoyed a spa suite this time and it's everything you'd hope it would be. The tub overlooks the river from the middle of the room, it was large enough for two with plenty of hot water to fill it up fast and soak to your heart's content. Our room was not yet ready as we showed up early, but the friendly staff at the front desk texted me as soon as it was done. The suite was fresh and clean. The TV seemed a bit small, but adequate as it wasn't on much during our stay. The grounds are well maintained, with benches here and there along a pathway that runs the length of the building. Cascade Locks is a fairly small town, but you get the impression that it's situated at the crossroads of commerce. From our room, we could watch large trucks negotiate the narrow bridge, trains passing regularly on the far side of the river and even barges being guided up and downstream. Yet in the midst of all this activity, the BW + Columbia River Inn is an oasis where you can get actually away from it all. We felt that we got a premium room at a fair price in a beautiful location. We would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Sandy P, General Manager at Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for returning and staying with us again, we appreciate your loyalty. I am happy you enjoyed the view from your window, for me watching the river traffic is mesmerizing. I hope you can return to Historic Cascade Locks and we invite you to stay with us again.

"COLUMBIA RIVER AND BRIDGE OF THE GODS"

17/08/2018

We LOVE staying right on the shore of the Columbia River.. with a bird's eye view of the Bridge of the Gods, which crosses over from Oregon to Washington state. We like to get a river view room on one of the top two floors... and just sit out on the deck watching the river , the mountains and the trains , which run along the shore on both sides of the river. If you do not like the sound of trains on the track or of train whistles echoing off the mountains on both sides of the river... then, this is not the place for you... But, if you are like us, and you love those sounds, it's a great place to enjoy them... The rooms are very nice... clean, comfortable beds, refrigerator and microwave.. ... lots of space.. and you can ask for a room with a river view (definitely recommend that, even though it's a bit more cost). Highly recommend this place.. We try to stay there every time we visit the Pacific NW..

Sandy P, General Manager at Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us again here in Historic Cascade Locks and also for your lovely comments. I am so fortunate to live and work in such a beautiful location. It is hard to have the rail line go through the National Scenic Area and O could move those tracks our of the Gorge I would do it today. We look forward to your return to the area and invite you to stay with us again.

16/08/2018

Everything was absolutely wonderful. John at the front desk was superb from our conversations by phone through arrival and after. He was so helpful and friendly, as well as providing insights to the area. Our room on the 4th floor had a terrific view of the Bridge of the Gods and the river. The room was perfect; the beds were the best. It was peaceful and quiet. Everyone was outgoing and friendly. The coffee in the lobby is excellent - my granddaughter said we didn't need to look for a Starbucks, because the coffee was"the best". Breakfast at the Bridgeside was so good! Loved the pool, although it could have been a few degrees warmer. I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. Everyone and everything about this location was perfect. Thank you all, especially John, for making our stay so enjoyable and memorable

"Great View & Fantastic Breakfast"

We had a balcony room with great views and the trains weren't bad. Earplugs are provided but we didn't need them. The Bridgeside Restaurant next door provided a great choice of Gluten-free items if asked. And most wonderful was an air-conditioner that kept the room at 69* F when the outside temperature is close to 100*!!!

13/08/2018

Our family of six stayed in two adjoining rooms on the first floor overlooking the river. The view was spectacular, and we had plenty of space. Everything was extremely clean, the people at the front desk were all very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent, right next to the Bridge of the Gods and we could walk to several trailheads, Thunder Island, and restaurants nearby. So many things to do just a short drive away. The breakfast was at the restaurant next door so it was a great deal - best free breakfast by far we've ever experienced. We didn't use it but there was a small indoor pool and patio to sit outside. We'd intended to do laundry but there was only one machine and dryer and it was in use when we checked. There are trains that run close by so I would hear them at night - it's not terribly loud but if you're a light sleeper it's good to know. The hotel provided earplugs in each room with the soap, shampoo. I would absolutely stay here if we're visiting the Columbia River Gorge area again.

Casade Locks is a town bypassed by the freeway that is far from a tourist hot spot. This hotel is pretty bland on the outside -- but, when you get in the room, you find yourself immediately overlooking the Columbia River, with reviews that our world-class. Plus, the staff is super friendly, and the included breakfast is a full, freshly cooked breakfast at the restaurant next door. A great find we stumbled into.

My wife and I arrived at the hotel in the late afternoon following a long drive down from Seattle. We were promptly greeted by friendly staff members and provided details regarding the property. Once in the room, we found a fairly standard but spacious room with a nice view of the Columbia River and the Bridge of the Gods. The restaurant next door provided and adequate meal for both dinner that night and free breakfast in the morning. (Be sure to take advantage of the coupon available at the hotel desk for reduced price at the restaurant.) Overall, a pleasant stay.

The location could not be any better! I absolutely love Cascade Locks and the river view from my room and being able to see the Bridge of the Gods was perfect. I had read other people's reviews discussing the railroad tracks and and since I live near railroad tracks I thought they were pretty funny, but I don't think I realized just how busy the tracks were. If you are a light sleeper it might be a bit of an annoyance, but with it being so hot we had the AC going and the tv was on so the sound was muffled. This was also my second stay here and the first time I stayed, my room faced the road and I don't remember being able to hear the train at all. Bummer not having that river view, but then the train noise isn't bad at all. They provided ear plugs, also. We didn't use them, but it's always an option. I had my five month old son and he slept just fine. I would and probably will stay here again.

I made a 2 night reservation 6 weeks before arriving, only to find out that the type of room I reserved, and received confirmation for, was not available! What? How does that happen? Very frustrating, especially when you pick a hotel based on the room accommodation.... And beware, the train noise does keep you awake - though they do provide ear plugs! The view is lovely, but again, be sure to verify your room type before driving for 5 hours. :(

Thank you for staying with us here in Cascade Locks. I am sorry your reservations was not what you thought you were suppose to have for the two night stay.

We stayed as for one night during our family road trip through Oregon . On arrival we were greeted by extremely helpful and friendly front end staff . John checked us in . He was very kind and efficient . We were given a BEAUTIFUL room overlooking the Columbia river as well as the bridge of gods . Absolutely stunning . The room itself was spacious and the beds were very cozy . The train tracks close to the hotel . We did not hear them at all , so please do not make this a deterrent! If you are a light sleeper , the hotel did provide ear plugs in your room complimentary. Breakfast the next morning was in the restaurant next door ! What a treat it was!! Food was fast , fresh, and great selection . (I have posted pictures ) Service was also very friendly as well . This hotel is a must if you are looking for a stop in this area !!!!

We are motorcycle folks and stay at Best Western's frequently since they are biker friendly. This hotel, however, was a pleasant surprise! Not only that, but the free breakfast at the restaurant next door was off the chain!

I stayed there the first time and the staff was very helpful and pleasant. I went to stay there a second time and when i went to verify my reservations, i was told i had booked for the week before. I had booked it on booking.com and they charged me and would not give me a credit to stay the correct dates. I talked with several people and left messages for the managers who never got back to me.

Sandy P, General Manager at Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
I am so sorry your had a problem with your reservation. I have gone through our system and do not find a reservation or stay with us under your name. I do not find your name in the Booking.com system for our hotel. I have no messages from you on my phone, by chance was your reservation under another name? We sincerely want your experience with us to be better. I hope you can return to the area and we invite you to stay with us.

This was a great hotel to stay at while in Cascade Locks. The staff was outstanding always friendly and there to help if you needed something. The view out your balcony was outstanding. The free breakfast was next door at the Riverside, and it was very good. We also stopped by at night for pie and coffee. The best Pecan pie I have ever had. I must mention the train going by but did not bother us at night. We will be back.

Check in was smooth. Breakfast was at the next-door restaurant and was mediocre to poor. Good location at the river's edge, with a great view. The hotel provided earplugs which was helpful as the train ran by under the window all day and night. Two of the front desk clerks were perfectly pleasant and one was snarky.

05/07/2018

Stayed 5 nights. 4th floor room, no view. Very clean. Check-in smooth. Chose this as a base from which to explore Columbia River area thinking we were going to golf at Skamania Lodge across in Stevenson. Cascade Locks, itself, is a tiny town. One very nice grocery/liquor store has pretty much anything you might need. Restaurants are super casual. No fine dining here. Free breakfast included at Bridgeside Restaurant next door. Ample selection and quite good. Stevenson, across the river, is a little larger with more shops and restaurants including the upscale Skamania Lodge. Hood River only 20 minutes further east. Turns out we decided not to golf and to just explore. Room are good size with microwave and fridge. Plenty of storage. 24 hour coffee station in lobby area. Views in rooms on River side of hotel are lovely and unobstructed. An easy drive from Portland airport, maybe 40 minutes. So very convenient from that aspect.

"WOW, what a view!"

Hubby and I were on a month long road trip and the Columbia River Gorge was one of our stops...stayed here for two days...spacious room on the 4th floor, AWESOME view of the Bridge of the Gods and the Columbia River Gorge from our private balcony....this hotel is clean and the grounds are kept beautiful. The free breakfast Best Western offers is at the restaurant next door(Bridgeside), hands down the best breakfast I've ever eaten from any hotel and I travel extensively...stay here, you won't regret!

We stayed in a king room with a view. Although we didn't have a balcony or patio we had a big window with a beautiful view of the Columbia River. We watched barges and paddle boats float by. The bed was a little soft for us. Vouchers for breakfast at the Bridgeside Restaurant were provided. We ordered off a special menu with a good variety to choose from. The food was good. The hotel is located near the Multnomah Falls and next to the Bridge of the Gods. We will definitely stay at this hotel again.

"Really Nice Accommodations on the Columbia River"

17/06/2018

We recently had the pleasure of a night at BW Columbia River Inn. The location was really excellent. It's right on the banks of the Columbia River, and just below the Bridge of the Gods. If you can swing a room on the river side (there is an extra fee for that side of the hotel), the views are pretty striking. Some rooms even have balconies to sit out and enjoy the view. If you're on more of a budget, there is an outside deck available to all guests with tables and chairs, and the lovely view. The staff was particularly friendly here, and really acted like they cared. Also, the complimentary breakfast is one of the best! You get a voucher to eat at the adjoining restaurant. Would definitely stay here again. The only negative I can think of is that a train does go by with occasional noise (never bothered us), but complimentary ear plugs are in the rooms if you are a light sleeper.

"Lovely Hotel"

The included breakfast was outstanding. The trains did not disrupt my sleep. We had the family room with a king and two queens, which worked well for the four of us. The fridge andeas microwave and complimentary coffee and hot chocolate were great for feasting on leftovers and fresh fruit from the local stands.

The staff at the. front desk were exceptionally nice and accommodating. We asked for a quiet room facing the Columbia River and it was peaceful, well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast is included in the room rate and you can order from a boxed section of the menu. There is a nice selection of choices and service was very good. This is a place we will stay at again when in the area. The pool overlooks the Columbia River and is kept warm enough to be comfortable and with that view is a relaxing experience.

01/06/2018

We stayed here for one night whilst travelling around the PNW. The Hotel is located just off the I84, next to the river and overlooking the Bridge of the Gods. We were greeted warmly by the reception staff and check in was pretty quick. They were happy to tell us about the different dining options in the area (not too many) and what time they closed (pretty early). Our room was on the lower floor, with a small patio overlooking the bridge and the river. It was spacious enough with 2 queen beds and a good size bathroom. Everything was nice and clean too. There was free coffee available near reception, as well as the in room coffee machine. Laundry facilities were available, (and pretty much right outside our door), but there was only one washer and one dryer so it could take some waiting to get your laundry done. Powder was available at the front desk as usual. The Hotel didn't serve breakfast itself but gave you a coupon for a free breakfast at the Bridgeside Restaurant next door. They had a very limited breakfast menu but we both really enjoyed our short stack of pancakes with bacon and syrup. The view of the bridge and river here is also great. Trains. Yes, there is a freight train track that runs directly alongside the Hotel, between it and the river. I found it to be a bit of a novelty and enjoyed hearing them coming past. I wasn't woken by them at all during the night and I didn't even use the free earplugs provided in room by the Hotel.

The view of the Gorge and the Bridge of the Gods was amazing. I have read other reviews complaining about train noise.. they provide ear plugs if you want but we didn't even notice the trains. Centrally located with easy access to hiking, scenery (which is breathtaking), mountains, and wineries.. Breakfast is provided next door at restaurant.

27/05/2018

We stayed for two nights in a suite with a river view and loved the place. It's 20 mins west of Hood township but right on a narrow part of the Columbia River with a great view of the swirling currents passing under the Bridge of the Gods right next to the hotel. The Fish Hatchery and the Multnomah falls are just down the road. The hotel staff were all extremely freiendly and helpful with our questions. The room was large with two king beds, couch, table and small balcony to sit and watch the river and vessels pass by. Very comfortable beds. Car park is very close to entrance The room was very clean and functional. The 24 hour laundry down stairs was also a plus. Sure, the trains pass right in front and below the rooms but they were never an issue with sleeping at night. Definitely a place on our list to return to.

We enjoyed a large room with a balcony, which overlooked the Columbia River. The sunsets, with the ever-changing colors reflecting in the water, were lovely. There is an abundance of freight traffic on the river and on the rails on both sides of the river. Interesting entertainment, while we were in our room. The hotel staff is very welcoming. We would drive out of our way to stay at the Best Western Plus in Cascade Locks.

Best Western is such a great chain of hotels. Its a clean hotel w/business amenites but no special plug ins in your room to charge your electronics.

My husband and I stayed here for just one night after a wedding in Stevenson Washington. The hotel was great! Good location, quiet and clean. Our only issue with our room was that the shower head functioned badly. The water was half on spray and half on dribble. We did not mention to the staff as we only stayed one night and just took a shower the morning of our departure. The work out facility is small, not many machines. The breakfast was delicious! I had biscuits and gravy and my husband had pancakes with ham.

This was an absolutely beautiful property and our room overlooked the Columbia River. I have to say, though, that the best part of this place was their staff. They knew the fun local places to check out, and great nearby restaurants (I'm looking at you, Susan, Mireya, Priscilla - you guys were the BEST). The other perk about this hotel is the free breakfast. This is not your average breakfast, people. This breakfast is the real deal. And it's free. And for our smoker friends who don't necessarily want a smoking room, the Best Western provides a nice covered patio just for you. For me, this place was worth every penny and I can't wait to take another trip to one of the most beautiful parts of Oregon.

As a retired airline pilot have have stayed in many hotels and this one is as nice as any I've stayed in! The staff is very friendly and helpful. It has an indoor pool, spa and fitness room. Hot breakfast at the cafe next door is included. I plan to stay here every time I pass through the Columbia Gorge. Dining nearby is rather limited. Even so, I highly recommend it!

We had a nice size King bed, with a sitting area, microwave, small frig, we faced the road, but looking out you could see downtown, snow falling, pine trees shimmering...we took our dog too. Staff was exceptional, from greeting us as we stepped into the lobby, fussing over our dog, timeliness of house keeping, oh, did i mention the room comes with breakfast right next door at Bridge Gate??Highly recommend.

31/01/2018

Kind of got confused and thought there were two BW in Hood River. This is NOT. Its 20 miles West. Location is pretty nice (staff said the views were better than Hood River. Super clean and great firm bed. A bit "spooked" by the ear plugs with the amenities in the room and the train tracks outside but we slept with the window open and were not bothered at all. I kind of had the impression that they might have stopped for the night. Much quieter than road or airport noise. Its kind of fun to watch them go past on the far shore of the River and they go pretty slow, the engines aren't working hard, and they don't blow the whistle. Dinner options are limited but the pub down the street was quiet and the food was very good. Hood River was fun to walk around in the daytime, and maybe stay for an evening meal, but the motel in Cascade Locks was great.

We stayed during a snow storm and was pleasantly surprised. We experienced helpful and friendly staff and a comfy room. The hotel provided ear plugs which I think was for the trains but they didn't bother us. The kids loved to watch them go by. The breakfast was very good and large portions. They even brought us containers to take items with us. We will stay here again if the occasion arises.

We stayed Christmas weekend here with 5 family members and we all enjoyed this Best Western. Great service, comfortable beds, and beautiful views. Access to the Bridge of the Gods and the Pacific Crest Trail make this a great base for Oregon and Washington adventures. Oh and free breakfast!

Thank you and your entire family for spending the Christmas Holiday with us. I am so pleased you enjoyed the view from our windows. I hope you all can return to snow Cascade Locks and we invite you to stay with us again.

You can't beat the views at this place of the Columbia river. The grounds are very pretty. The staff were helpful and happy to see our dogs. The beds were comfortable and the wifi was fast. I love that they put the dog rooms on the first floor for convenience. Will visit again in the future.

With it's awesome location and views of the Columbia River and closeness to the bridge of the gods in Cascade Locks, Oregon this Best Western hotel is simply one hotel you must stay at. Here you can listen to the sounds of trains on distant tracks, watch wildlife and river traffic all from the comfort of your room.

Great location in Cascade Locks and the Gorge. An easy walk to Thunder Island Brewing Company. Great dinner there. Bridgeside Restaurant for breakfast had great views of the Bridge of the Gods. Great comfortable rooms. River View rooms had train noise but ear plugs provided. Great views......

On One side of the Hotel you have the Beautiful Mountains and so many trains. On the other side was the Gorgeous Columbia Gorge River. The Suite we were blessed with for the Wonderful Holiday trip that we were on, was absolutely Awesome. I shared a room with my mother. So we each had our own large bed. There were 2 sinks, 2 TV's, a Sitting area, coffee/tea maker, hair dryer, mini frig, microwave, ample room for guests should we have any, and our complimentary breakfast each morning was fabulous at the Bridge Side Restaurant next door. Loved it all!

The hotel was good in every way. The rooms were excellent, spacious and clean with all the amenities required. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was included which was next door in the Bridgeside Restaurant and served a choice of hot food, cooked to order. Very good. So good we went there at night as they sold great beer, great food, with lovely views of the river and bridge. There was an outside eating area, but it was a bit cold while we were there. You can also walk a little further to the Thunder Mountain Brewery which has a good selection of beer and food, or Cascade Locks Ale House is a few minutes walk but didn't try this one. Would certainly stay here again if I was in this area and would recommend.

"Pretty riverside setting"

14/11/2017

We spent only one night at this hotel, hoping to see the nearby falls (unfortunately closed due to fires). The hotel is not too far east of Portland, and is right on the Columbia River next to the Bridge of the Gods. The fall foliage made it a beautiful setting. The room was comfortable and spotless and had a balcony overlooking the river. Breakfast was delicious at the restaurant next door on a voucher from the hotel. One caveat - there are train tracks running along the river so if you are a light sleeper you may mind the train traffic - they do supply ear plugs and it really wasn't a problem during our stay. Overall we loved this location and plan to return in a year or two to visit the famous falls!

Sandy P, General Manager at Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us during your time in the Gorge. I am sorry your were unaware of our devastating Eagle Creek Fire that destroyed 58,000 acres of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. The positive side to this is there is excellent hiking on the Washington side of the river and they are open for business. I am pleased the train tracks did not bother you if I could move them out of the Gorge I would do it today. I hope you can return to Historic Cascade Locks and we invite you to stay with us again.

My husband and I spent 4 nights here on a visit to the Colombia River Gorge. The hotel is in a lovely location for touring the area. The rooms are big and newly remodeled with comfortable mattresses. We had a king room with a balcony overlooking the river and the Bridge of the Gods. So gorgeous and relaxing to watch the traffic go past on the river. The trains did not bother us at all. There is a free breakfast at the adjacent restaurant. It was very good and a perfect start to the day.

Easy on and off of freeway if you are just stopping for the night. Best pet friendly hotel we have ever stayed at. Restaurant was extremely good and very accommodating. Dog walk area clean and well kept. Hotel was a top 10 in every way, we will always choose this property while travelling from Canada to California and return.

It was a great place to stay. The room was really nice with great view and balcony. The location was great as well. There is train rail next to the hotel which makes noise. It doesn't matter which room you are since it was very close to the hotel. Staffs are wonderful, nice and charming. our only problem was breakfast. we thought it would be buffet similar to most of Best Western hotels, but it was not. They will give you a voucher that you can eat your breakfast in the restaurant next to the hotel. But you have limited choice for breakfast and you need to pay for eating out of menu for Best Western Hotel.

"Hiking Trip with family. "

My husband and I did a little road trip from California to Oregon to hike Multnomah Falls with my sister and boyfriend. Although, we couldn't do it due to the fires that happened months ago making roads and hike trails closed. We still had fun doing other hikes across in Washington State, trying restaurants and breweries as well. But having a great place to stay made it worthwhile. This is the Best BW I had ever stayed in. Rooms were cleaned, beds were comfortable, a little balcony to enjoy the nice views of the river, at the lobby you will find coffee, tea, hot chocolate 24 hours. I like the indoor pool and the exercise room. Staff were courteous and helpful. And, I liked that breakfast was included. Thank you for making my staying great, however, I chose the wrong month to visit, it was raining.

Sandy P, General Manager at Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us so soon after the devastating Eagle Creek fire which burned 50, 000 acres of the Columbia River Gorge and causing the closure of the trails, historic highway and our beloved Multnomah Falls Lodge. it has now been 8 weeks since the fire started and the recovery and restoration of the Gorge will begin. We so appreciate that you came and stayed with us and enjoyed all the wonderful trails on the Washington side of the river. We hope you will plan a trip again and we invite you to stay with us.

This facility is excellent (if you like trains and rivers). The Bridge of the Gods is visible from any river-side room. The motel offers ear plugs if the trains might keep you awake all night (which they don't(, LOVED it.

This hotel had a great location and the room had new furniture which was beautiful. The staff at the front desk were all very nice and the Manager shook our hands and thanked us for coming. My only regret is that I didn't spend the extra money to upgrade our room to a river view. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and the food was great. Best experience I have ever had at a Best Western. Don't let that name concern you! The breakfast is a food voucher for a restaurant next door. Highly recommend the breakfast! Great view and great food at that restaurant.

I spent two weeks at this hotel on business. The rooms are large, comfortable and clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I did have a room on the parking lot side of the hotel. The rooms with a river view may be a bit noisier with the train passing on that side. Overall excellent stay.

"Awesome staff"

Rate too high for value received. Rooms are noisy, lots of sound coming from hallways and many trains in the night. Hotel in wonderful location, The views out the river side are incredible. great historical pictures in the rooms. Needs to be remodeled or rates lowered.

I stay at hotels all over the NW and judge the others by the Columbia River Inn. No better staff, large clean rooms, and a reasonable rate. You do have trains that run every hour that you can hear the rumbling, but if you keep your window closed, it is not a problem even for the lightest sleeper.

Great view in the gorge of the Columbia river, breakfast at the next door restaurant and as with most Best Westerns, pet friendly for a small fee. Open patio seating next to pool on the second story looks over the river for great sunset/sunrise seating. Walkway in back connects to main city sidewalks for great pet walking and views!

This has to be one of the best hotels we have stayed at. We had a river view room and could sit out on the balcony and watch the paddle wheel boat go buy, and the trains were great, yes a bit noisy but who cares. We did not use the ear plugs Breakfast was next door and again was great. Had dinner at a local brewery, We would go again in a minute!

"Views of the Columbia"

25/09/2017

Spent one night, should have booked two or more. Just a few hundred yards east of the Bridge of the Gods. Nice views of the Columbia river and the bridge. Check-in was easy, very nice counter personnel. Room was as advertised: 2 queen beds, small balcony, river view. Clean, comfortable; perfect for a couple (or a couple plus one). The only drawback was noisy children (assumed by running, everywhere) in room above definitely not motel's fault -- Suggestion: bottom floor balcony units assigned to families with children - safer and noise would not bother other guests. There were a couple of trains passing at nite -- short, not a problem. Ample parking (free); free breakfast to order off limited menu at restaurant next door. Other amenities as descibed on BW website. Because of the fires there were many responders staying at this site but everything seemed to be running smoothly. I would definitely recommend this Best Western and stay here again.

Thank you for staying with us while in Historic Cascade Locks. I am sorry you were bothered by noise, please always let us know at the Front Desk so we can help you.

"Spiders and Wildfires ...Wrong time to be there ! "

11/09/2017

Our river facing room was lovely however the location (near the train track) and the spiders on the balcony kept us from using it. When I say the spiders on the balcony... I don't mean one or two.... But dozens!! We did call and asked if anything could be done about the spider issue and they sent the housekeeper up with a bottle of " Febreze" to kill them. The lovely housekeeping lady did her best with the bottle of Febreeze and a towel but there were just too many to combat without some heavy duty Raid (which apparently the hotel did not have) I'm sure the spider issue has something to do with the time a year we were there and that the balcony light would not go off. However , I regret that we paid the extra money for a balcony we could not use during our entire stay Unfortunately we checked into the Best Western Plus Columbia River just as the eagle creek wildfire started and the air conditions deteriorated quickly so we checked out a day early. I would love to give this best western another try due to its location was beautiful....but I would have to bring my own can of raid next time

I am so very sorry your stay with us was did not meet your expectations. The hot dry summer, and the forest fire has made it difficult for us to do our proper job and I am sorry.

A very nice room and great river front location right next to The Bridge of the Gods! If you want to see waterfalls there are many in the area and they just minutes away! from this Hotel! The room was surprisingly quiet considering it sits right next to the rail tracks, we really didn't hear the trains. There is a cute little family run Pizza restaurant just down the street with 10 kinds of beer on tap and Jacuzzi tub was large enough for both of us to relax after a long day of sightseeing. There is an excellent zip line that we also took in just minutes from this hotel.

We reserved a room overlooking the Columbia River and it was wonderful. Not only was the room very large (two sinks), but we had a view of the Bridge of the Gods and mountains right off our balcony. The pool and jacuzzi were much needed after a long drive. Nice restaurant next door and a ticket to breakfast. Hiking nearby. Pet friendly with a very nice pet area to walk our dog. Room very clean. The staff were so friendly and made us feel right at home. AAA+++

"Clean and Comfortable"

31/08/2017

Our party of 6 stayed here for 3 nights in July. We had two rooms. The room with two queen beds had a view of the Columbia River. The room with the king had a view of the parking lot (it was a bit noisy one morning with a truck making a delivery, but it was tolerable). The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The kids enjoyed the free hot chocolate and the indoor swimming pool. Breakfast is included at the restaurant next door. The breakfast options were tasty. You can upgrade your breakfast option and pay the difference, but we were happy with the free options. There's a guest laundry room with only one washing machine and dryer (top loaders). During our stay, the washing machine was broken. That was a downer, but right across the street is a motel with a laundry room with about 8 washing machines and driers (all side loaders). When we return to the area, we will be staying here again.

I can't say enough for this picturesque setting. We loved the in room spa, view of the river and free breakfast at the restaurant next door. I grew up next to a train track so the sound of the train was a soothing lullaby for us. We enjoyed watching the barges Kobi and the fishing boats on the river. Great view of the bridge of the gods and entire expanse of the Columbia river here. The staff are more than helpful and friendly. From the minute we arrived to the time we left we were spoiled. Great hospitality. They did it right all the way around from the amenities to the towels. Sitting outside around since it was so relaxing we could've stayed here for days. Very nice!!!

This is a fantastic hotel. The location, right on the edge of the Columbia River Gorge, is stunning--has to be seen to be believed.

15/08/2017

We stayed just 2 nights with a large room (2 x queen size beds plus a lounge area) overlooking the Columbia River. The room has a small bathroom but the washbasins are in the main room! There are 2 large TVs. Warning.... Rooms facing the river have a wonderful and idyllic view BUT between the hotel and river there is a two track railway line. There are 40 freight trains a day rumbling past very very slowly. The trains are typically 2 or 3 locomotives plus some 100 - 110 cars. ( over 1 mile of train). You do get used to it quite quickly, unless one chooses to sound it's horn.

We were very pleased with our stay at this Best Western. We had a room overlooking the river so could watch the barges and other river traffic go by. The trains also went by regularly so there was a little noise from them but not enough to disturb our sleep (we didn't even need to used the ear plugs provided by the hotel). The room was very clean and the beds comfortable. The double sink/double vanity was a plus! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The complimentary breakfast at the restaurant right next door was excellent and not just the usual motel breakfast. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

"Good hotel"

A good hotel, however, the restaurant next door where we were sent for breakfast wasn't the cleanest. The menu was limited, and the service was quite slow. The food, when it came, was good. The rooms were clean and spacious.

"Fire!"

13/08/2017

While it wasn't within staff's control, our stay was less than restful. First, the room smelled of bad men's cologne. Second, at midnight, the room above us began running the spa tub and we heard the water run for about 15-20 minutes as if it was right in the room. Third, at 0345 the fire detector in the room went off and then water began leaking through the detector. Night staff got us another room but not the same amenities as we reserved. Then the am staff was dismissive and condescending toward us when we went down in the morning to move the rest of our stuff. We were never 'angry or rude' but yes upset we had to move at 0400 in the morning. Supposed to be a romantic couple of days, turned out to be a terrible stay. No one reached to us the remaining time we were there (one more night) and when I called, no one returned my call. They did comp the first night but no apology or anything. And called me "upset'...

"Perfect location!"

Be sure to request a river view room. The location and views of the river are outstanding. Free breakfast at the restaurant next door was a pleasant surprise. The special menu for guests was varied and very good. Bed was very comfortable!

We stayed here while visiting Columbia River Gorge. Inn is close to all the attractions in Columbia river Gorge area and Rowena Crest. Rooms have fantastic view of river, mountains & Bridge of the Gods.Rooms were comfortable. Inn offers free breakfast.

We stayed here as our home location to explore the gorge area. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, even though I had looked online for info. Our room was really nice, and the view from our window was amazing. We were on the 4th floor. I would say though if you can get a room with a balcony, do it! It would have been nice to sit outside. They offer a free breakfast at the restaurant next door, and it's an actual breakfast, so that was a plus. It was easy to cross the bridge and do activities in Washington as well. The staff was always very friendly and attentive. We really enjoyed our stay. If you want somewhere quiet away from the crowds, this is a great spot. Realize though, there are not many other dining options available in Cascade Locks. Other than that, I would book a room here again on my next visit.

Sandy P, General Manager at Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn, responded to this review

The staff at this hotel were great! They were friendly and greeted us as we came and went. We appreciated that they were always there to give a restuarant recommendation or driving directions. You can tell that they take great pride in their property and serving their customers. This hotel is perfectly situated to explore Hood River, Stevenson (WA), the Dalles, Troutdale, and even Portland. There is quick access to Highway 84, but we couldn't hear any highway noise. The property was very clean and had all of the amenities we wanted (microwave and fridge in the room, gym, laundry facilities, etc.) Our room was spacious and had a killer view of the gorge. It was definitely worth paying extra for the view! The pillows in the room were so comfortable, I looked up the brand and order a couple for home before I even left the hotel! The bed was really comfortable as well. Hotel guests get a voucher for breakfast next door at the restaurant. The selections are somewhat limited, and they don't do substitutions, but the food was really good and they give you plenty of it. Other options are available if you want to pay extra for additional items. As other reviewers have mentioned, there are train tracks that run between the hotel and the water. During the day, trains go by a couple of times an hour. I never heard a whistle, just the sound of the train on the tracks. This wasn't a negative for us, as we weren't in the room much during the day, and they don't run during the night. We would definitely return to this hotel!

"They took the roller bed away on the last night"

02/08/2017

Without explanation the Roller Bed was removed on the last night of the stay. The comment of the staff was that the roller bed was not in my inventory. It had been ordered with the reservation in April. The Stay was in July. They at first said to try to find a room for our third in another hotel or to find another roller bed! A room for our disadvantaged third was never offered. A staff member brought a chez lounge type folding cot from his home to accommodate our third.

I am so very sorry for the unfortunate experience we gave you as I indicate in my letter. Staffs failure to follow procedures lead to this mistake and I am sorry. I hope in the future Best Western International can assist you with your lodging. Again please except our sincere apology.

I stay at this hotel every year in July. The hiking in the area is the best. The hotel is in the most beautiful spot. Get a room with a river view and balcony. It is near a great restaurant with a view and it offers you free breakfast. The Bridge to Washington is right there. So I hike easily both states. So many great hikes and waterfalls to see. Just make sure you are up early to avoid the crowds. Great places to eat in Stevensen nearby. The hotel is super clean and staff is helpful and friendly. I already booked for July 2018. Parking is great and a convenience store is in walking distance. I love watching the riverboats and windsurfers ....enjoy!

25/07/2017

This Best Western Plus has all you need to set up your home-base to explore the Columbia River and Cascade Region. The restaurant on the grounds (shares the parking lot) has great, fresh food and excellent service. Very, very family friendly. We explored Mt. Rainer, Mt. Hood, and Hood River from this location and found it perfect. You will also! Located just below the Bridge of the Gods, we were able to zip back into Washington for microbrews and grub. Just minutes from the waterfalls off of the scenic highway which was too crowded for us. It was a holiday weekend and apparently all of Portland comes west to this area. We can see why....it's absolutely breathtaking.

"Great Location"

25/07/2017

I love the location of this property. It is right on the river and next to the Bridge of the Gods. Amazing sightseeing is right outside your door or just a few minutes away, including several waterfalls in the surrounding area. The room was spacious and comfortable. You receive a breakfast voucher for the restaurant next door, which was good. I didn't make use of the amenities, but it looked like they had a fitness center and a swimming pool. I was passing through and only spent one night but I will most likely stay here again on my next trip to the area. I just wish the in-room coffee maker was better.

"Disappointing Location & Breakfast"

2
24/07/2017

The rooms facing the parking lot are noisy from road traffic all night, especially at the end of the hotel by the Bridge of the Gods. Even the A/C fan couldn't drown it out. CFL bulbs in the room when LEDs are so plentiful and cheap? A bathroom toilet so low to the floor that using it was uncomfortable. Dark hair on the bed blanket that wasn't ours. A cheap skimpy bowl of oatmeal at the restaurant next door with no fresh fruit ($1 extra), no yogurt, no skim milk, no toast but if you are a protein eater you get breakfast meat, eggs, hash browns and toast. Where's the comparison price-wise??? Walked the entire length of Cascade Locks shortly after arriving and there is nothing worth seeing, doing or anywhere decent to have a meal except the restaurant next door where you stand in line to order your food. Yes, the tables have a view but this location and "town" has nothing else to offer. I wish I hadn't relied on the glowing TA reviews on this hotel. Do yourself a favor and stay in Hood River instead!

"Excellent Choice in Cascade Locks"

19/07/2017

The Best Western Plus really does it up right at this hotel right on the Columbia River. It is conveniently located at the foot of the "Bridge of the Gods" which connects Stevenson, Washington to Cascade Locks, OR. The hotel was perfect for the family wedding I attended on Thunder Island which was walking distance from the hotel. Newly renovated and upscale rooms, clean lobby and friendly staff made our stay even nicer. For those who want to pay a little extra ($10/night more), request a room on the river side for a scenic view of the river from your balcony. Complimentary breakfast is located next door at the Bridgestone restaurant where hotel guests can choose from one of 6 entrees on the menu. Food was excellent. The restaurant also has a cute gift shop if you're looking for a last-minute souvenir to bring home. I highly recommend the Best Western and would go back in a heartbeat.

I work at a Best Western and was throughly impressed with this one!! The rooms seemed to be in good condition, they are clean, comfortable and inviting! The only down fall is the training running all night behind the building! The hotel does provide ear plugs so that's a plus!! The view from the room was amazing!! Restaurant right next door for convienent dinner after a long drive was appreciated!! All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. The guy at the front when checking in told my kids all about the area attractions and the eagles at the Bonneville Dam, they loved it!!

Check-in went smoothly. Very friendly staff. Room was large and comfortable and some unique-looking pieces. Door to balcony with two chairs. Since it was raining, we could not take advantage of it. Great View of the Columbia River and the Bridge of the Gods. Very relaxing to just watch the various boats and barges. One word of warning, trains do run in front of the complex and across the river and can be heard with the window opened (no information if closed though). Although Complimentary breakfast at the Bridgeside Restaurant next door. Good selection for breakfast. Order at counter and the food is brought to your table.

We selected this hotel partly because photos showed a spectacular view of the Columbia River and Bridge of the Gods from the adjacent restaurant (where you can get a "free" breakfast if you stay at this hotel). We were not disappointed. The hotel itself is nice, more or less what one would expect from a Best Western Plus. There was ample parking, and the grounds are beautiful. If you are so inclined, you can also walk behind (river side) the hotel and overlook the Columbia River, complete with the Bridge of the Gods spanning the river a short distance downstream.

This Best Western is right next to the Bridge of the Gods, what a view. Also, there is a trail head right across the street for hiking, due to weather I didn't get to check out the trail. There are rooms with a view of the Columbia River which have balconies with chairs to relax. There is a railroad on both the hotel side and the opposite side of the Columbia River, they do have ear plugs in the room for those who want them. The train noise did not bother me at all. Breakfast is include but at Bridgeside Family Dining which is next door. They also have amazing views. Treat yourself to this great location. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

Located in the small town of Cascade Locks, this nice BW Pus Hotel is located right on the river next to the "Bridge of the Gods". I would recommend the riverview rooms. We had a standard 2 Queens room with a great view from a nice sitting area by the window. Some riverside rooms had balconies. Check in was efficient and staff was very friendly. The room was well maintained and clean. Beds were comfortable. Although trains frequently came by right below us, it was not that disruptive. You did have to go to a restaurant next door for breakfast, but service was fast and the food was good.

Some reviewers complained about the noise from the train, but that did not bother us.

Although we only stayed one night, my whole family thought that it was a very decent hotel. The kids liked the pool even though it was quite full as it was Memorial day weekend.

The restaurant was okay but it would be nice to see what else the little town has. We will be back!!!

Enjoyed the beautiful view of the river and the mountains from our hotel room! Even though the train ran right past our hotel, I couldn't even hear it. Great breakfast at the restaurant next door. Great value!

Very nice hotel. All new furniture in the rooms. Very large and spacious. It was right on the river and what a beautiful sunset you can see. The breakfast is served at the restaurant next store and it was super good. About 6 things to choose from. Was super happy with our stay. The staff was super friendly and always smiling when passing threw the lobby.

The spacious King room overlooking the Mighty Columbia River was perfect for our overnight stay on our road trip. Every convenience was included: from Pool & Fitness Center to ample outlets and USB ports, plus microwave, frig, coffee/tea, comfy bed and extra towels. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. We had a delightful stay.

Superb in every way. Great position. Wonderful hotel with remodeled rooms. Excellent staff. I booked this hotel from New Zealand not knowing the area at all, we could not have found a better hotel. The position is magical right on the fabulous Columbia river with so much going on just outside your window. You must book a room with a river view. Highly recommended.

Hotel sat midway of all that was of interest to me, the waterfalls. Easy check in & out. Very clean & although a little older it's very well maintained. Included breakfast at the restaurant directly next door. Great made to order breakfast & great place for lunch or dinner too. Beautiful river behind to walk along or sit out to enjoy. Very nice work out room & enclosed pool area. Snack area, free coffee available as well as room with computer & flyers for local attractions. Overall just a very nice place with a great location.

"Unique."

29/04/2017

This location is unique. We have driven to 49 states, 3 Canadian provinces, and one territory, so we've seen a few hotels/motels. This location is only about an hour's drive from where we live, but we have never stayed here prior to this. We stayed here for our 48th anniversary. As seen in the promo photo, it sits next to the Bridge of the Gods, the first bridge across the Columbia River east of I-205 in Portland, Oregon. We had a river view room, and the bridge traffic is not a distraction. The trains are though. There is a train track just below this hotel, and trains come and go night and day. We like trains, so it did not bother us at all. But, if the sound of trains wakes you up, then this place is not for you, as there is no way to avoid them. On the flip side, if you are a train buff, you will probably love this place! The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast is served next door at a restaurant, and it too has magnificent views of the river. It also has a modest, but interesting historical items display scattered around the place. The food is good. the service was too. As mentioned, we only live about an hour from here. I have hiked a lot in this area, and my wife and I have visited most, if not all, the tourist spots and attractions around here. If hiking is your thing, you can access the Pacific Crest Trail walking distance from this hotel. You can also access an historic trail just to the west of the bridge. Parts of it used to be old highway 30. It's now both a hiking and a biking paved trail that extends from this location to Elowah Falls, a lesser known falls in the Columbia Gorge, about 5 miles away. Along the way, it goes past Wahclella Falls and Eagle Creek. The former one has an easy one mile loop to an impressive waterfall. The latter, has a major trail that goes 10 miles inland to a lake. Along the way, are numerous waterfalls. At two miles is a beautiful falls, Punchbowl. At six miles, is Tunnel Falls. It has a tunnel behind the falls. If you get this far and are not camping overnight, go an extra 1/4 mile to see Twister Falls. One water fall jumps over another and they go down a crevice together. If you like *long* hikes, Eagle Creek is the best. Both Wahclella and Eagle Creek have a $5 fee and they *do not* have electronic payment available. I would recommend if you visit either, arrive early-parking is limited. As for this town and nearby ones, there are various tourist things to do and see. Cascade Locks has a nice playground for the kids, and there is a pretty picnic park on an island accessed by a footbridge. A small museum and gift shop are on location nearby. West of here, near Wahclella Falls is also Bonneville Dam, which has tours, plus a fish hatchery open to the public, including a gift shop. Stevenson, across the bridge in Washington, and to east, has a small but interesting museum. For those interested in such things, it has a large rosary display, in addition to historic things. A little further to the east is Bingen, across from Hood River in Oregon. There is a bridge here too. Bingen has a fantastic antique shop. If you like antique shops, it is worth a look. There is also a quaint one open only on weekends in Carson, nearby Stevenson. Hood River has plenty to do for tourists as well, including an historic hotel that was a site for an episode of the TV show Grimm. All up and down the Columbia Gorge on both sides of the river are all sorts of activities and hiking trails. So, if trains don't bother you, this hotel is a good location to set out from.

We have stayed here a couple times and will definitely return in the future. This time we brought our dog, and were place in a first floor room with a little balcony which was great because we just opened the door and let the dog roam in and out, but didn't have to worry about him running away because it was secured with a tight railing. The view is to die for, especially on a nice clear day. The room was clean, bathroom a little small, but good enough to shower or bathe at the end of a long day. The breakfast at the restaurant next door is always delicious! The exercise room is very small, but we don't necessarily use it- you'd be crazy to not get out into the gorge and hike while there instead. The train goes by frequently, but honestly we didn't even notice it in the middle of the night and it never woke either of us up, and the dog slept through it too. We are already planning our next trip down to go hiking and stay a couple more nights.

We were visiting friends in Stevenson and didn't feel like driving back home so we booked a room at this hotel through the Hotels.com app. Check in is a 4pm and we arrived a little early but our room was ready so they got us set up and handed over the keys. The room was very well appointed and the bed seemed better than average and we knew that was the main reason for our stay. We got back to the hotel very late and didn't have a chance to try out the shower but the bathroom looked clean. The bed was pretty comfortable and we watched a little HBO before dozing off. We had heard that some people had an issue with train noise and although we weren't on the river side of the hotel, we didn't have any issues. Around 9am, we did hear a train in the distance but it definitely wasn't anything obnoxious. Our room included free breakfast at the restaurant next door which was really good but that is a different review. This is a great place to stop for the night with fast friendly check in and clean and comfortable rooms. We would definitely stay here again.

Hotel offers great views of the Columbia River and the Cascade mountain range. Plenty of hiking and things to do in that area if you're an outdoor person.

Lovely setting right on the Columbia River. We actually had a hot tub in our room and a nice little patio. Bed was super comfie. Hotel itself is great. But there is nothing around the hotel. We ended up driving back and forth to Hood River to eat. I had a reservation at the BW there and then changed my mind and reserved this one instead. Wish I hadn't! Still, this is a comfortable, clean place convenient to lots of great hiking. BTW, there are train tracks literally feet from the back of the hotel that is busy! But surprisingly, I didn't hear trains coming and going.

26/11/2016

I had the pleasure to stay here 2 nights, Oct. 2016 & 3 nights Nov. 2012. Staff is friendly, accommodating & remembered us. Best Western Hotel in Cascade Locks is comfortable with scenic views of the Columbia River, Bridge of the Gods, and regularly passing freight trains which add to the ambiance. If you are visiting from an area like Southern CA and visit Cascade Locks you are in for a scenic treat. The hotel is next to the Bridgeside gift shop and restaurant with free breakfast for hotel guests. The restaurant displays Indian & Western artifacts & scenic views of the Columbia River & much more. Across the bridge is BRG Big River Grill, a nice class place to relax & dine especially for dinner. Earlier in the day, drive the scenic route from BRG in Stevenson, Washington along the Columbia River and over Hood River Bridge to to Hood River city and back to Cascade Locks. Also near the hotel are famous magnificent waterfalls. You will appreciate Best Western in Cascade Locks. I recommend a room with river view & balcony, but without adjoining doors. Despite 2 trips, we could not see everything. Oh, Best Western is 45 min. east of Portland, OR.

I had a friend in town and we didn't want to try to drive back to the city when it was dark anyhow. The pros: - Wonderful breakfast in the morning next door, the value was for 2 adults and 2 children, it would have been another $30 out of pocket, but was complimentary with our stay - It was very convenient and it had a beautiful view of the river and the Bridge of the gods - If you have an opportuinty to ask for a room on the end, we were in 301, we had a nice little sitting area and two TVs, no one had to fight for programming - Internet was great with little ones and iPads - Friendly staff that brought us more towells - The restaurant next door was great for dinner too, but awesome for a wholesome breakfast- really good food Considerations: - It is next to the train tracks BUT, it's the only hotel that is on the river from what I've seen. If you live in the city, this won't bother you if you close your door I really am glad I had a chance to experience the hotel and for a chain, it was awesome!

"Very nice, but...."

31/10/2016

The Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn is by most standards a pretty nice hotel. The rooms, while not exactly exciting, have all of the features that we have come to expect in the 21st Century, the staff seems pleasant and helpful, and the view of the river (and the nearby Bridge of the Gods) is excellent. In addition, included with one's room is a free breakfast at the family type restaurant (appropriately named the Bridgeside, where the view of the river is even better) next door. There are, however, some problems. First, when the hotel is anywhere near full (which, I suspect, it usually is) parking is a bit of a mess with too few spaces for too many cars. Second, the train tracks rather inconveniently placed in the narrow space between the hotel and the river, are busy train tracks, and, while I suspect heroic efforts at sound proofing have been made, the noise is at least somewhat disturbing--when the 2:05 from Abilene is highballing its way on to Portland, you certainly know it. (Okay, probably not from Abilene, but you get my point.) Finally, I think the rates are just too expensive for what one gets. Yes, I guess I am the crotchety old guy, but for something north of $170 for a standard two-queen room at the end of October, I am just expecting a little more, even with the free breakfast. Well, I guess it's just an example of location, location, location, for the BWPCRI is in a great spot, not just because of its view of the river and the bridge and Greenleaf Peak, but also because it is so near many of the best Gorge waterfalls and hikes. So, in the last analysis, maybe it *is* worth the money if you really want to stay in Cascade Locks. But while I doubt there is any better place to stay in Cascade Locks, most people, I suspect, would be happier to drive on twenty miles and stay at the really excellent Best Western in Hood River. (One more note--the Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn now has one of the new Best Western signs, and the Best Western folks have really dropped the ball on this one. To replace the logo we have all known and loved (okay, not exactly *loved*, but still) for umpteen years with something that appears to be more suitable for an ice cream stand is a crime. I mentioned this to a member of the BWPCRI staff, and she ruefully agreed with me. Mr. Best Western CEO, tear down this sign!)

Thank you for staying with us while visiting the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. I have given your remarks a lot of thought, and for the most part you answered your own remarks. We are blessed to be in the Gorge and to have a million dollar view out side our windows and yes it comes at a price. E Commerce does come roaring through on a regular bases and I wish I could move those tracks today. A world wide brand such as Best Western must and will always stay a head of the game, our logo refresh was in no way because we did not love our iconic symbol the crown or that we do not honor our founder M.K Guertin, it is because we must always look to the future. We cannot slow down. I hope you do return to the Heart of the Gorge, Cascade Locks and we invite you to stay with us again so the we can show you Superior Care.

29/10/2016

We were on the 4th floor facing the Bridge Of The Gods. It was an exceptional opportunity to see the transportation industry in full swing. The Columbia River is a major transportation line so we saw barge after barge with all kinds of products they were moving. We saw an Old Fashion Paddle Boat, We Saw Jet Boats and we were right on the railroad line. Trains went by all day and night. The room was really a fun spot to hang out. Even the free breakfast had the same view and made you want to stay longer to watch. The waterfalls were 8 miles up the road and we hiked 7 waterfalls in two days with stunning fall colors. No fees for anything. The Bridge of Gods was $5.00 to cross which is a rip off but we did it to say we did it. I saw all of the competition hotels and this is by far the best selection for what you get and that is coming from a Gold Elite Marriott Member. The rooms were huge and extremely clean. Micro and Mini Frig. We actually took advantage of the hot tub both nights because of the hiking we did. Had it all to ourselves. Loved this hotel and we will go back.

Stayed for three nights because of the location was close to many areas we wanted to visit. The front desk personal was very friendly and professional. The room had a nice view and was very spacious. After a long day of hiking it was nice to relax in the hot tub/pool. Having a laundry made it easy to dry our clothes after getting wet. I can't say enough about the breakfast at the restaurant next door, the food was so good we ended up eating there for lunch and dinner all three days. Thanks to Rod for making the best Mushroom Soup to warm us up. Out of a ten day trip of Oregon this was my favorite hotel.

My friend and I attend the Hood River harvest festival every year. We usually stay in Hood River. This year we decided to stay in Cascade Locks and explore the area. I am so glad we did. The hotel, from start to finish was truly exceptional. The views of the Columbia river and the Bridge of the Gods from our balcony was breathtaking. We enjoyed watching eagles and geese and the paddle boats on the river. The room was very comfortable, the bed just perfect. We also received a complimentary full breakfast at the restaurant next to the hotel. From now own, when we attend the festival in Hood River, we will stay at the BW in Cascade Locks. The one thing you should be aware of though, the train tracks are right below the hotel and the freight trains run frequently through the night. The hotel accommodates the potential concern by supplying ear plugs. We actually enjoyed the trains. It added to the experience.

Stayed here for one night while passing through the Columbia River gorge. While this was one of the most expensive hotels on our trip, you get good value for the money and I assume pay for the location too - right next to the Bridge of the Gods and overlooking the river. Our top floor room was nicely appointed, very clean and had a huge comfy bed. While the room was facing the parking lot and road, we did not experience any noise and had an excellent night of sleep. Breakfast is included and served in the cafe / restaurant next door, which has fantastic views of the bridge and the river. Breakfast is cooked to order and much better than the usual hotel/motel breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

The rooms overlooking the Bridge of the Gods and the Columbia River were just perfect for our family trip. The view was incredible, and the rooms were larger than a typical 2-bedroom hotel room. There was a table and chairs, plus a couch, so we could all spread out. The included breakfast was available at the Bridgeside Cafe, just next door, and again, the views from the large windows were breathtaking. There is a train that passes next to the river during the night, but the hotel thoughtfully provides earplugs, so I didn't find that to be a problem at all.

The room was very nice, large and comfy. Coffee/tea available in the room and near the lobby. I thought the bed was high and had trouble getting onto it. I did wonder about the check in rules stating that there would be no drinking, no smoking and no sex in the rooms. How would they enforce these rules? Hidden microphones? I also had some problems sleeping with the trains that rumbled past for most of the night. Luckily, they did not have to blow the whistle...... The view of the river was great and very relaxing and entertaining with the traffic of boats and barges. Breakfast at the restaurant next door was included in the cost.

"Wonderful location and views overlooking the river, and pet friendly"

We really enjoyed our stay facing the river. We had a room on the end on the first floor which was very convenient for taking our dog out. The trade off is no balcony which is also nice on the other floors. We loved hearing the train go by. On the Oregon side they don't blow their whistles, but on the Washington side they do, which is farther away and pleasant (we thought). We sat out on the benches in front of our room watching the Sternwheeler Columbia Gorge tour boat go by as well as the tug boats pushing wheat barges up river. A nice made to order breakfast was included next door with wonderful views. Very relaxing visit.

Sandy P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
I am very pleased you enjoyed the view from your room, thank you for staying with us. I also enjoy watching all the river traffic from leisure craft to enormous barges. I hope you can return to the Gorge and we invite you to stay with us again in a balcony room.

this motel is a great place to stay. The view from the room was unbelievable overlooking the river and gorge. It is literally on main highway but still quiet and cozy. We really enjoyed our stay and recommend this place to everyone

"Great Columbia Gorge Location"

5
28/09/2016

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 few blocks from the Sternwheeler. There are several restaurants down the street, along with a small market. Hood River is about 20 minutes East on I-84 and has a much larger choice of restaurants. View: Because we rarely spend much time in the room, I usually don't spring for a view room. Here, I wished I had. View rooms come with a patio or balcony and have sweeping views of the river. In addition to spotting birds, you can watch boats and trains go by. Room: The bed was comfortable, and we had no noise issues despite the nearby train tracks. The room comes with a microwave and small refrigerator. The sink was located outside the bathroom. Food: Several breakfast options at the restaurant next door are included in the price. Customers order at the counter, find a table, and a server delivers the food when it is ready. The first morning we had our food within 5 minutes. The second day it was crowded, and we had a 15-20 minute wait. The most popular choice was two eggs, hash browns, choice of bacon, sausage, or ham, and two slices of toasted multi-grain bread. I selected the oatmeal with a hot spiced pear the first morning and granola with yogurt the next. Pancakes is another option. Breakfast also includes your choice of coffee, tea, or orange juice. I enjoyed the food more than the usual Best Western breakfast. Other Amenities: The fitness room is very basic but includes a treadmill and a elliptical. Other observation: The Columbia River Inn is about ten minutes away from the Skamania Lodge in Washington, and is a good alternative if the Lodge is full or you do not want to pay Lodge prices for a luxury stay.

This is a really good hotel. I have stayed at 5 star hotels with fewer amenities. The river views were spectacular. The good; hot tub, internet, the breakfast next door in the restaurant was outstanding, the bed, the safe, the marble sinks, 24 hour tea and coffee, pleasent staff. If you are a light sleeper you may hear the train or the boats. It didn't bother us at all, the room had good sound proofing. We had a fantastic stay. There was so much to do in the area.

"Very Accomodating!"

25/09/2016

We arrived late at night without a reservation after flying from the East Coast. The staff were friendly and got us checked in quickly. The room was not a river view, but very acceptable and in fact, may have been quieter since the river view rooms have the trains going by! There was a nice terrace to sit and watch the sunset, the pool/spa were great and breakfast was very good at a restaurant next door. We decided to extend our stay and again, the staff were friendly and accomodating.

Sandy P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us after your long journey from the east coast. I am pleased you got to enjoy the deck and the "million dollar view" we are so lucky to have. We hope you return to the Pacific Northwest someday and invite you to stay with us again.

"Good for nature views"

25/09/2016

I liked this hotel for the natural setting. Our room had a beautiful view of the river. We had dinner and drinks at a nearby tavern that had picnic benches overlooking the river. The hotel has a few small tables outside overlooking the river, where you can bring some wine and cheese and enjoy the sunset. The train noise was kind of a low rumbling sound that did not bother me too much at night, especially as I had set the fan to "constant" to provide background noise. I was glad that the train doesn't blast the horn, at least. The next door restaurant breakfast was okay, but I prefer a buffet style breakfast. The hotel had coffee in the lobby.

"Salmon fishing gateway"

24/09/2016

Great room! - 2 queens, 1 king bed. A sitting area with a riverside view, and large enough that 4 adults were not stumbling over each other. Beds nice and firm, and room kept clean and tidy by hotel staff while we enjoyed the salmon fishing.

"Gorgeous! LARGE dog friendly, on the river - wonderful!"

22/09/2016

Room was impressively appointed! Beautiful. Beds were super comfy. CLEAN -- like brand new clean! Quality everything, including plush towels! Dog walking area is excellent, private and plenty large - beautiful grassy, well landscaped meandering walking along the river.. Also clean! Having a restaurant, and a very good one, next door, is a true bonus. The food is great - especially considering that a FULL b'fast is included!! They even were kind enough to bring dinner to our room on a rainy night. (ESPECIALLY considering) there were many dogs staying there that evening, it was QUIET. LARGE dogs very welcome - we have a 100 lb Dobe and saw 2 other Dobes there, plus several others. Very awesome place - NOTHING negative.

"Comfortable as expected."

18/09/2016

The bonus of staying in a chain hotel/motel is you know exactly what you are going to get. So this is exactly as I expected a BW to be. Good sized room with both comfy king bed & sofa. We chose a room without a special view which is on the road side but were not troubled with much road noise. The Inn has the bonus of a hot tub & decent sized indoor pool. Plenty of free drinks in lobby & vending machines available for snacks. Complementary breakfast is served at adjoining restaurant. Stayed here 16 years ago & would return.

"Wonderfully updated... a pleasure to stay here"

15/09/2016

I grew up in this town and have stayed here numerous times over the years. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and accommodating and the hotel itself has been meticulously updated. The rooms are extremely comfortable and well done. Our favorite? The free breakfast options chosen from a special menu (next door at the Bridgeside Restaurant). They are excellent - and you get to sit and gaze at the beautiful Columbia River and Bridge of the Gods while you eat (which totally makes up for choosing a non-view, less expensive room.) What an improvement over the old buffet style 'breakfast' served in a windowless room in the hotel!!Even tho I grew up there, I never get tired o that gorgeous view! Keep it up - we will be back!

Sandy P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for staying with us again and for your continued support of us and Cascade Locks your home town. I also have never tired of the view out our window, I would not trade it for anything. We look forward to your return home and invite you to stay with us again.

Enjoyable stay. Great view of the river, surrounding landscape and the bridge from our room. The breakfast included in the price was at a restaurant near by and the quality of the food was very good, as well as ample quantity. The railroad is just maybe 100 ft. from the hotel and trains do run though out the night - this did not seem to bother us.

"Great hotel with a caveat or two"

5
13/09/2016

The hotel is located right along side the Columbia River. We had a great room, 415, top floor with a small balcony overlooking the river. 2 sinks are adjacent to the frig and living room, not in a separate area. A/C works great except that the vanes can't be controlled so cold wind blows across a person sitting on the nice little couch or laying in bed. Would have to put the 2 stuffed chairs in front of it to deflect the blast of air. Be aware that the trains run back and forth right below the hotel along both sides of the river. We enjoy the sounds, so no problem. The hotel does supply ear plugs for whatever they're worth. They have coffee and hot chocolate available all day and night. Breakfast at an adjoining restaurant. Your options are limited. There's a wonderful park which you can walk in for long distances. From the hotel, If you walk back east along the main drag a few blocks you'll come upon a place that serves the most gigantic soft ice creams you've ever seen! This is a great place to serve as a base for numerous hikes in the area. Weekends are jammed with hikers, beware!

We've stayed in many BW's with our kids and dog. This one was ok - room was small and I felt like we were put in the corner with the boiler room, haha. But over all it was fine. I'd stay again. Awesome view of Bridge of the Gods and the breakfast at the restaurant next door was great.

We finished a 4 night stay , and found it to be an excellent experience. Aside from a beautiful location, the staff at this hotel are professional and friendly. The rooms are modern and clean, the bed comfortable, and breakfast next door was better than usual BW fare. We had a room facing the road so maybe that's why we had no issues with train noise, or maybe it was the fact that we went to bed exhausted each night. We took advantage of the nearby hiking trails each day , and the jacuzzi for a few minutes each evening. Hot coffee and tea always available, which was lovely. perfect stay thanks!

"Trains"

05/09/2016

If you like trains running through your room than this hotel is for you. Please be advised that the trains run every 20 minutes and are right out your back door. There are two train tracks behind the hotel, one behind your room and the other is on the other side of the river. If the train running down the track isn't noisy enough for you there is the occasional barge that blows an air horn 200 yards from your room!

"Great place to explore the Columbia Gorge"

05/09/2016

I chose this hotel and it is conveniently located in the Columbia gorge and would serve as a jumping off point to explore the area. Front staff was great; the room was clean, and the pool and spa were refreshing. Breakfast is served next door at the Bridgeside restaurant, but your choice include a full breakfast of eggs, meat, toast, potatoes, and coffee/tea. It was so filling that we only needed some fruit and rolls for lunch. Location is perfect and the view off the back deck is magnificent. Definitely worth it.

"Excellent location for visiting Columbia Gorge area!"

We stayed here while visiting Gorge area. Beautiful location with Columbia river flowing right behind the hotel. There is no access from hotel to river. Rooms are clean and big, pool is very nice and they had constant supply of hot coffee. Very relaxing atmosphere and had a good stay. Breakfast is next door and food is very good. You get food voucher from hotel for the breakfast and it is sufficient, you can always add more to what is normally included in the meal at additional cost. Didn't have many restaurant near by, pizza place across the hotel was ok. Overall stay was very good.

Pretty new hotel that is pretty nice. The breakfast is actually at the hotel next door so plan for that if you are leaving early to fish like we did. they opened at 6:30 which was too late for us. There is also a railroad track right underneath the hotel. They have earplugs in your room - use them if you are a light sleeper.

This Best Western is convenient to Interstate 84 in a beautiful spot beside the Columbia River in small town Cascade Locks. It is just down the road from the many waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge. We usually stay here when traveling to Portland or the coast. The room was roomy, clean, and quiet. The bed was comfortable. The hotel gives you a voucher for breakfast dining next door at a local restaurant where the service is good and the meal choices are excellent, as you eat while taking in the view of the Columbia River. We enjoyed our most recent stay here, and will plan on staying again on some future trip.

The room is very comfortable. I stayed during peak time summer travel and clients were quiet. There is a very busy train traffic if you choose the river view but that stops late at night. Staff is very helpful. There is a small swimming pool but you better swim because it is a tad cold and a hot tub. Breakfast comes with your stay with the restaurant right next door. They have fixed choices for the hotel breakfast so if you want something that is not on the list, you'll have to play extra. The choices they have for breakfast is very good so you don't really have to go out of the hotel breakfast list. I chose carrot cake as an extra and it was delicious.

Sandy P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Columbia River Inn, responded to this review

23/08/2016

Large, tastefully decorated room with 2 beds, a loveseat, 2 arm chairs, coffee table, large tv, nice carpet & drapes. The bathroom has a large vanity with double sinks. The beds were heavenly to sleep on --- new, thick mattresses with a nice mattress pad that gives that little extra softness that makes a bed feel luxurious. The bed also had nice sheets & great pillows on it. I slept very well & didn't want to get out of bed in the morning!! The view is fabulous -- the Columbia River & mountains. Now, the reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because there are railroad tracks that run behind the hotel. There was 1 late train, but then none until after 07:30. The train didn't bother me, but it might bother others. HIGHLY recommend this hotel.

"Location & value"

22/08/2016

We chose this hotel for it's proximity to all the hiking trails in the gorge area. It's clean and has consistent Best Western furnishings and quality. It's right by the Bridge of Gods and is in the small town of Cascade Locks. The staff were cordial, the hotel well maintained, parking located outdoors. We had a suite with a hot tub (didn't use) overlooking the river on the ground floor. Our room had a balcony but since we were on the ground floor the view wasn't that great - trying to take pictures meant getting part of the wooden fence in it and it's not possible to hop over the balcony barrier..so if you really want to take pictures from your balcony you are best getting a room higher up. I read previous reviews about the train noise but we didn't have a problem with it. It was more like white noise rather than anything abrupt. We are also from NYC so tolerance to noise is relative. I thought the breakfast was better than your standard best western breakfast (aka cold continental fare). It's served at the restaurant next door and you can choose from a couple menu choices for a hot meal and beverage. The lobby inside Best Western has free coffee. We didn't try any of the restaurants in Cascade Locks for lunch / dinner. We just drove over to Hood River for our meals..many choices and good restaurants (thanks yelp!). Don't forget to check out the fruit loop (fresh produce) and breweries (pFriem)

The view from the rooms and the breakfast area is awesome. There is a train nearby that runs often but is surprisingly quiet. The beds are comfortable and we appreciated the a/c as we visited during a warm time of the year. Cascade Locks is a small quiet town. The hotel's location is near several easy to moderate hiking trails leading to scenic waterfalls and is about 20 minutes from the Hood River area.

"Best hotel in the town but not the best hotel I've stayed at"

22/08/2016

This is a decent hotel but the weekend we stayed there was an event going on so the price was waaaay over-inflated. Definitely not a good enough hotel for the price we ended up paying. Very nice staff and the rooms were clean with comfy beds. The breakfast was definitely lacking though. They give you a voucher for the restaurant next door but the breakfast menu is very limited. Overall, it was an okay hotel and the best hotel in the town, but seeing as it's pretty much the only hotel in town, that's not saying much.

We called ahead just the day before for a room. There were only 2 left at the hotel. One with a balcony ( it was cool weather) and the other was a suite. We were so lucky to get the corner suite on the 3rd floor. 2 Windows faced across the Columbia Gorge and the 3rd looked down the Gorge - such a magnificent view. Bridge of Gods also visable from 2 windows. Spacious and comfortable. Great beds, towels, everything was wonderful. Instead of a continental breakfast, we were given a voucher for a cooked breakfast at Bridgeside Restaurant next door.

We came to this best western not knowing the chains customer service policys didnt apply here. We have never dealt with more frumpy staff in any best western .the rooms,eere very noisy trains every hour.the walls paper thin.room was clean though. No employees appeared to like working there. Poor management. The other observation was that the overall attitude since its their busy season was they were doing you a favor to allow you in. Would not recommend. The city rolls,up the sidewalks at 8 pm.so unless you are a pot toking backpacker theres not much to do as any nightlife.poor experience

The staff was friendly, parking a little tight. Did not get a view room. A/c worked, shower worked, beds good. Coffee bleh. But you get breakfast in restaurant next store, which not only was good but was not a buffet so you didn't leave feeling bloated.

We had an excellent experience! I plan on participating next year at the Bridge of the Gods 10K and Half Marathon run and will be making my reservations at the Best Western - Cascade Locks! The view from our window was breath taking! We also enjoyed breakfast as part of our room rate. Each morning the breakfast was delicious and the staff was very friendly.

"Gorgeous views"

10/08/2016

Very clean and had gorgeous views of the Columbia River and surrounding mountains from the river view rooms. Good location (only 10-15 min. drive west to Multnomah Falls hiking and 10-15 min. drive east to great restaurants in Hood River. Nearby ice cream shop has the biggest portions I've ever seen in an ice cream cone. Breakfast was awesome with good quality food and views of the river. Hot tub was a good hot temperature. Internet connection was good but had to sign in every time when wanting to use which was annoying.

"Typical for the Best Western chain chain."

Good parking in a prominent location. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was very comfortable. It has a tendency to be noisy from road traffic. There are no in house dining facilities and breakfast is served in the restaurant next door, which is adequate. Fine dining does not exist in this location so be prepared to drive on. The locaation and history of the locks is fascinating.

"Nice place EXCEPT for the extremely loud trains all night"

04/08/2016

Chose a Columbia River view room, but was not told that the trains RAN ALL NIGHT LONG DIRECTLY BETWEEN the room and the river. It was simply too noisy to sleep, even with the earplugs provided by the hotel, and I had to pull over on the rest of my way to Eugene, Oregon at a rest stop to try to sleep.

My 79 year old mother and I showed up to the parking lot being resurfaced and inaccessible and no one to help us get our luggage to our room. But the hotel is the best Best Western I have ever stayed in. The rooms are great, the view of the Columbia River is the best, comfy beds and the hotel is very nice. We voiced our dissatisfaction with the check in experience and it was immediately addressed by the manager and we were very satisfied with the resolution. I will be bringing my mother back for her 80th birthday!

If you find that hotel near the Hood River is full, drive the quick 20 miles to this hotel alongside the Bridge of the Gods. You will find magnificent views from spacious rooms, great facilities and service, and a complimentary breakfast at Bridgeside next door that will knock your socks off. The area has great hiking trails and access to a park and marina where you can catch a scenic ride on the Sternwheeler (steamboat). Loved it!

"BEST WESTERN NEVER LETS ME DOWN."

03/08/2016

From the moment we entered the lobby, front desk agent Karie made us feel welcome. After a quick check in we were off to the exact top floor room we had requested the previous month. We were in room 405, a king suite with a balcony overlooking the Columbia River and the Bridge of the Gods. The beautiful room was furnished with everything you could possibly need and had a comfortable little seating area next to the balcony and window overlooking the river. We took turns lounging inside and then sitting on the balcony watching the cars crossing the nearby bridge, and the boats floating by. There is also a small yard with benches located downstairs where you can sit and enjoy the awesome view while drinking a tasty cup of coffee from the little stand a few doors down the street. Breakfast was served next door at the Bridgeside Restaurant. They have a menu for hotel guests, ranging from simple bagels to a full bacon or ham and eggs, hashbrowns, toast etc. choice. You order at the counter and they deliver it to your riverside table. Good basic breakfast, beautiful view. We also returned later in the day to sample their Salmon Chowder which was very good. The location of this hotel must not be overlooked, sitting a short drive beyond the amazing group of waterfalls along Hwy 84 and only about a forty five minute drive up to Hood River and the wonderful drive through the "Fruit Loop", just off Hwy 35. There are so many interesting sights to explore in this area you must give yourself a few days to do so. I must mention the trains that run along the river, both sides, several times a day. I slept with earplugs as usual, my better half Cookielee didn't, and we both slept well. I actually enjoyed the trains and considered them part of the environment, much like I enjoyed our room located above the streetcars in San Francisco. It really gives you a feeling for the area. It might sound like a commercial but Best Westerns never let us down. Unlike the Hampton that we stayed at the following night, they always manage to get us the room we reserve and treat us like valued customers. I can't recommend them strongly enough.

"Good Place For Area"

03/08/2016

This hotel was very good for the dollar, given how small the area is, and the other available lodging options. I have had good experiences at other BW's, so I knew what to expect. Good stay for a reasonable cost. Beds were comfortable. There is a train that runs along the tracks below the hotel, but the cool thing is, they supply ear plugs! At first I thought it was a joke, but the plugs work and were comfortable. No issues. Best thing about the stay - the provided breakfast in the grill next door. Wonderfull river view!! Good food to boot. Only negative about the stay - the wifi. Performance was rubbish.... (That can be easily fixed, right Hotel Management??)

This is the first time we have stayed at this Best Western on the Columbia River. I had intended to stay further east at the other Best Western Hood River Inn, but accidently booked this one. They were very helpful at the front desk when I told them of my mistake and called the other hotel but they were booked so we stayed at Best Western Plus. The room was adequate, clean, but an older hotel. It does not have a restaurant or lounge which we like in any place we stay, so that was a disappointment. It also was quite a bit more expensive than the other hotel, and didn't offer as much. There was a nice park within easy walking distance to the hotel and access to the stern-wheel cruise boat on the river. The staff was very friendly, a restaurant was next door which offered free breakfast if you stayed at the hotel.

"Perfect location, good size room"

02/08/2016

Stayed for one night and had a ground floor room overlooking the river. Wonderful view, quiet, and spent a lot of time reading and enjoying the view. Breakfast was next door at a restaurant, perfectly adequate though limited choices with the voucher the hotel gave. Walked down to the park and through the small town. We had spent a day going through Columbia River Gorge on the OR side and after doing the loop through the coast, had a day extra and drove on the WA side, stopping here for a night, rather than staying in Portland. Recommended for a night or two if in the area. Hotel is better than most around here.

Our group, of 4 couples, was on our annual 2 week motorcycle vacation. We traveled from Wisconsin to see the best of Oregon and Washington. This property provided us with spectacular views of the scenic Columbia River. This is a beautiful motel with great service and beds that you'll never want to get out of. A complimentary breakfast was served at the adjacent restaurant and was awesome. AND, this was the best value along the Columbia River Gorge!

Loved the location, right along the river, and close to all the hiking trails we had planned out.

Would highly recommend.

"Nice enough motel but too expensive"

27/07/2016

Stayed in a "river view" room. It did in fact have a window facing the Columbia and Bridge of the Gods. However, it was a small window (maybe 3'x4') with drapes obscuring part of that. Room was clean as was the bathroom. Bed was just OK. Ready to be replaced, I think. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was served in the restaurant next door with a voucher supplied by the motel. Can't speak to the regular menu, but the breakfast served to my wife and I was just plan bad. Not sure what the Plus stands for on the Best Western sign, but judging from this place, I would guess it means, "We charge $50 more than the room is worth."

Sandy P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us in Historical Cascade Locks. from your comments it seems we failed you in almost everyway and I am sorry for this. I will tell you I have never had anyone say our windows were not big enough.

I hope you will return to the Gorge and we invite you stay with us again so we may show you a better experience.

"Close to Stevenson Washington events"

26/07/2016

We booked this hotel because it was just a few miles from the Stevenson Bluegrass Festival even though the per night rate was over $200. This newer hotel's room was clean, had a microwave, but the sink was in the room - not bathroom. The view is great from the hotel but half the rooms face the street which was the case with ours. We experienced a TV that did not work from the time we arrived till we left two days later. It had to do with the Direct TV part, not the TV. The hotel said they would fix the problem, but after several follow ups by us, the issue continued. We do thank the hotel management for the reduction in rate for our problem, but wonder why the issue could not be fixed within 2 day.s

Sandy P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
I am so very sorry you had an issue with your television, there are several issues that bother me about this as I was here all weekend and there is nothing in the maintenance log that is reviewed daily by me and the maintenance staff. We also do not allow our staff to wear shorts. Monday when I went to the room the TV was working so thankfully no one else has a problem. Again I am sorry for any inconvenience to you. I am pleased the Front Desk Manager adjusted your billing one night. We hope you will return to the Gorge and invite you to stay with us again.

This hotel was a great location to explore the river gorge. Our room was large enough for our family of four, we spent three days here and had plenty of room. The rooms nicely decorated and clean.

Fantastic experience except for Karey, desk clerk; absolutely unhelpful and rude . Great smile, totally unhelpful. Also,no fruit except for bananas at breakfast, which is weird since it is cherry, apricot season in a cherry state. Room had fabulous view overlooking columbia river. Clean. Great indoor pool, larger than it appears. So convenient to to Highway with all the waterfalls and views and also to Hood River and the fruit loop. easy jump off point to Beacon rock and Olympic National Park.

We were in attendance for a wedding on Thunder Island. This hotel had average ratings. The facilities were clean and comfortable, but the staff needed some serious customer service training.

Great location next to the Bridge of the Gods surrounded by superb scenery. There are a number of small restaurants in walking distance of the hotel along with Thunder Island Brewing.

The hotel is right on the river, and as mentioned, the train tracks are quite close. Not often do trains pass so the proximity isn't offensive. Our room was clean and updated, with comfy beds and lots of room for all to relax. Staff is very friendly and the breakfast at "The Bridgeside" was tasty.

"A Decent Stay - Friendliness of Staff Varies"

3
10/07/2016

This is my third time staying here. The lobby is large with plenty of seating; the business center is located in a corner of the room and would probably be better placed in a move private area as everything you do is open to the view of others. Check in was OK - the staff member who greeted me seemed less than happy dealing with the public but the front desk manager was superb. Our room was fine enough and we had no major complaints but we had several medium size ones: The internet was slow - sufficient for email and that's about it. This poor internet remains unchanged from two years ago when I stayed here. I had an update for my Mac computer that could not be completed while at this hotel as it kept timing out. I was able to complete the update in less than two minutes when I got to my next hotel, a Best Western in Astoria. Also, you do not stay logged in after about five minutes of inactivity and this means you have to continually enter the username and password. This is very frustrating. An addition that should be seriously considered is an outlet by the sofa or on the night stand adjacent to the sofa for charging devises while using them. The shower was either a weak spray or a hard stream with nothing in between. They need to replace the shower heads soon or at least the one in room 408. The last time I stayed here I mentioned to the staff that they really need to install some “slow close” mechanisms on the room doors. This has not happened. The result is guests have the displeasure of listening to the result of other guests exiting or entering there rooms without holding onto the door handle. The slamming of doors can be frequent and very loud at times and is disturbing to other quests. A slow close mechanism will solve this problem.

We had a balcony room with a view of the Columbia River, Room 117, and a view of the Bridge of the Gods. This is the bridge that Charles Lindberg flew under in 1927. We could only imagine as we sat on the balcony what that would have been like as he flew past where we were sitting. Also see the old locks and the river boats go by. The entire property was spotless and all staff were helpful and pleasant. They also all spoke English. The breakfast was free, delicious and served at the neighboring Bridge View Restaurant. The pool and hot tub were clean and a nice treat. Highly recommended place to stay.

I travel a lot and stay at Best Westerns to earn points and take advantage of their promotions. Because of this I have been able to purchase and earn travel cards. I had two rooms reserved for my family and paid for them with a stack of travel cards. The young woman at the registration desk was so patient and dealt with me an all of my travel cards and was so nice about it. She made the process very easy considering how much extra attention I needed just to get me and my family checked in. The location by the river and the Bridge of the Gods is beautiful. Definitely planning on staying there again. Breakfast at the Bridgeside was very good. Much better than the traditional hotel buffet breakfast.

We spent the last 2 nights of our 12 day Pacific North Coast vacation in Cascade Locks at the Best Western Plus Columbia River Inn. We were on the 3rd floor with a spectacular view of the Columbia River! There is so much to see in that area and Best Western was a perfect location for us. And I was thrilled that there was a bathroom fan, some of our previous(national chain) hotels did not have fans in the bathroom. I know, my quirk, but still...

This Best Western Plus in Cascade Locks, OR is terrific. They sent us next door to the Bridgeside Restaurant to order & eat our breakfasts (provided with our room charge). The breakfast choices were many & the staff at Bridgeside were great also. The motel had lounge areas for us to gather as well as great service & staff. The rooms were fairly large and absolutely clean, more towels than we needed. I didn't try the indoor pool but heard it was great also.

Housekeeping was ok, trash was not taken out and we were only given one shampoo and conditional for a family of 4. Close to all the parks and sites for the gorge.

"Nice Big Room, Great Location...but Freight Trains"

30/06/2016

Stayed for a night and we were impressed by the size of the room. Location was terrific - within footsteps of the Bridge of The Gods. Included with the room was a free breakfast at the Bridgeside Cafe next door (a very nice perk). Our room had a view of the river which was very nice indeed. The beds were quite comfortable and the bathroom was fine - nothing special but no problems either. The only negative was that located directly below the hotel was a freight train track and several trains passed by during the night which could get very very noisy. I only noticed the first one. It's not so much the low rumble but the squealing of wheels (think of scraping your fingernails on a chalkboard) that might be a problem. So if you are a light sleeper you might want to ask for a room on the other side (but then you miss the great view).

Even if the "Century trains" do run by the hotel, you don't hear anything but the somewhat soothing "clack, clack" sound. The views are spectacular, the riverboat, barges and other river traffic are wonderful. Bridge of the Gods is the sight greeting you/ as it towers over the mighty Columbia River. Of course the surrounding mountains are breathtaking....can't beat it. Stayed in the suite, all other rooms sold out. Very happy with everything. Only problem is wanting to stay forever....

The room was very large and comfortable.

I loved spending time sitting on the little back deck in the evening watching the sun set over the river. The breakfast was terrific. You get a voucher for the restaurant next door and the food there was great! The hotel also has an indoor pool and a small workout room if you like these things. The staff was always friendly and helpful. I had such a great stay here that a few days later I had some extra time and decided to go back to be able to finish exploring some of the places I ran out of time for.

"Gorgeous Location and Surprisingly Nice Motel"

13/06/2016

This motel was a great find. It's located about 15 miles east of Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge. We were given a very large, renovated room with attractive decor and great beds. It was on the 2nd floor with a balcony directly overlooking the Columbia River and adjacent bridge to Washington. What a view! Watching the clouds, the trains, the light on the island in the river and the thick forests on the riverbanks, the sightseeing steamboat, and the barge traffic on the river was really enjoyable. The room was extremely clean and comfortable, and the motel is very close to I-84 but completely away from the traffic. If you're a light sleeper, you will hear some train noise during the night, but it was well worth it to me for such a nice motel in such a gorgeous location. This is a great place to stay outside Portland.

We were pleased with the quality and cleanliness of our room. The staff was friendly and helpful. Luckily we asked for a room opposite the train-side, so the noise was not bad. The nearby restaurant was mediocre for breakfast. In summary, this was a good location for exploring the Columbia River Gorge and hiking the trails around Mount Hood.

Sandy P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us while in the Gorge. Gosh if I could move those train tracks I would do it today. We invite you to stay with us again on your next Trip to The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.

03/06/2016

Hotel was very good by the Hood a River. Room was very clean with decent size. The view from my room was great. There is a busy train cross the river. It was very busy the night we stayed over there. I suspected this rail is very busy all the time. You can find ear plugs in the room which was provided by the hotel. It also include a very good breakfast. Free WIFI was provided. But it was very slow.

We came upon this place first just off the bike trail and were exhausted so it was great it was right where it was, the rooms were large and we could take our bikes in with us. the restaurant was right next door and breakfast was included. the Internet was not good but everything else was top notch

"beautiful views, and wonderful rooms"

02/06/2016

My husband and I took our 9 year old grandson to the Columbia River Inn. Our room was very nice, the bathroom was clean, and the bed was comfortable. The room had a great view, and we loved the warm pool. If you go there, bring a fridge thermometer. You need to get pool towels at the front desk, and there is no bathroom in the pool area. The beverage cups are plastic, and the complimentary breakfast is next door. Overall, a wonderful place.

"One Night Stay"

5
25/05/2016

We were looking for a 1 night stay near Eagle Creek - Tunnel Falls Trail, Oneonta Canyon and Beacon Rock. This was a perfect location. We reserved two rooms, the check-in was quick and easy. Coffee was provided near the hall by the front desk. The rooms were clean. The bed were comfortable. We had a balcony room. It was a beautiful view of the Bridge of the Gods, river and mountains. There was a train track at the bottom of the hill that was concealed by trees. When in the room you could hear it but it was muffled. We enjoyed the sound as it was not over whelming. Breakfast was included. You will be given a voucher for the number of registered guest. The voucher is good for the restaurant next door called the Bridgeside. When you arrive at Bridgeside you will be given a menu specifically for Best Western. There were about 8 choices available; with the option of purchasing other items from the regular menu. The food was good. You go to a counter to place your order and you are given a number tent for your table. Once your meal is ready it is brought to your table. The view is similar to Best Western with wall full of windows. They purchase items locally to prepare menu items. Staff was great but the tables need to be refurbished because they feel like the finish is tacky. There is another part of the restaurant that was closed off. I cannot comment on this area or the menu. It looked like it was more of a dinner area with full service. There was also a gift shop. Back to the Best Western. I cannot comment on the pool or other areas of the hotel because we were not there long enough to explore.

Pleasantly surprised by the value of my stay; a terrific location (the views will grab you of the bridge and river valley), supported by a very comfortable hotel. Whatever your reason for being there, you'll be inspired to take a long hike, eat, and then crash onto a decent bed.

18/05/2016

The staff was very friendly and cooperative from check in to checkout. The setting by the Columbia River is very pictorial. My only recommendation would be to get a room with a view as the non-view rooms are on the highway side. The included breakfast at the restaurant next door was nice.

18/05/2016

This is a beautiful place to watch the Columbia River. The hotel is quiet and clean. The location is close enough but far enough from busier towns. The best part is the breakfast next door at the restaurant. I highly recommend the biscuits and gravy or the NW breakfast combo.

"Great views, convenient to attractions"

17/05/2016

Pros: Clean, tidy rooms with great views of river and bridge. Convenient to waterfalls and to Stevenson. Staff were friendly and helpful Cons: Noise from trains require windows to be shut if you want to sleep- earplugs are provided and needed even with windows shut. Included breakfast is at neighboring cafe- is a set menu with several choices but may not suit those who prefer buffet. Cascade Locks restaurants are very basic- it's either fried or in a bun. Hot tub needed maintenance as less than half the bubbler ports were working at the time of my visit.

Beautiful place. Bridge of the Gods. Columbia River Gorge. We have spent every anniversary at Cascade Locks and Charburger for the last 23 years.. with the exception of the last two years..

We have stayed here several times and it never disappoints. Staff if courteous and friendly and the rooms are spotless, not to mention the fantastic view. We counteract the sound of the train directly below the room by keeping the Aircon each night...never a problem and ear-plugs are provided should you need them...we have not.

"Very nice hotel with great views but noisy"

4
14/05/2016

Great hotel! I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because of the railroad noise during the night. They do provide earplugs but I don't sleep well with earplugs so I was not getting much sleep. Also, the breakfast options were limited because it's not a typical best western breakfast - instead they send you to the restaurant next door with a breakfast voucher for one meal item on the menu. I prefer the traditional buffet style.

"WOW--WE LOVED OUR STAY!"

5
13/05/2016

My husband and I wanted to see this area and chose this hotel--it was a great choice!!! We also love trains and were happy to see them from our balcony room. We were impressed with the friendly staff from our greeting to our checkout. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. We had an awesome view and sitting on our balcony was super fun. We love to do photography so we really enjoyed the river view on a higher floor. Each room comes with ear plugs if they are needed for the trains but we didn't need them. My husband slept through the whole night and I only woke up a couple of times and went right back to sleep. They include a good complimentary breakfast at the restaurant next door, and they also have a small pool. We appreciated the small refrigerator in the room. All in all, we plan on returning to this very nice hotel.

"Views are fabulous and staff so friendly"

13/05/2016

We recently stayed two nights at the Best Western PLUS Columbia River Inn and could not have been more pleased. If you walk to the back of the hotel, there are benches and beautiful views of the Columbia Gorge area. The rooms are clean and roomy and the staff very friendly. When you check in, you are given a voucher for breakfast at the Bridgeside Restaurant right next door. The restaurant has a special menu at the register for Best Western guests, but the best selection is the Cascade Breakfast that comes with eggs, hash brown potatoes, toast and your choice of a meat (sausage, bacon, ham steak). You can also just order something simple, like a bagel, oatmeal if that is your choice, but the Cascade breakfast made us so full we skipped lunch each day we had it. The location is so convenience, too, with the Bridge of the Gods being in eye view that crosses you over into Washington State if you care to visit there. We would absolutely recommend this hotel to people.

"Pleasure trip with 96 yr young mom"

5
13/05/2016

Traveled with my 96 yr young mom 2nd week of May. Hotel, staff room, grounds were fantastic in every way. Very accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable about area and things to do. HOWEVER, the restaurant associated with this hotel is in a separate building and it was cafeteria style and horrible. While the workers were great, food was not nor was the menu. Expect hamburgers and sandwiches and they only have whole grain bread. Did not expect cafeteria food to be associated with this caliber of hotel. It's approx. 11 miles to Multnomah Falls area but drive is beautiful

"Great location "

5
11/05/2016

This hotel has an excellent location, we were offered two variations of rooms, for an extra $10 we opted for the room with extra living space. The room was huge, with lounge area, table and four chairs and two queen size beds. Staff were very helpful, free coffee available 24/7. Wifi was good but kept dropping out and the only downside was the noise from the rail track. At night the train is noisy, but that didn't detract from our stay.

"It was pretty good"

4
10/05/2016

The motel itself was nice and the workers were nice but when the train goes by at night it's loud and shakes the room some. The pool is nice and the work out room is nice. I would say the only down fall is in the middle of the night when the train goes by.

"Amazing, view, noise train and poor internet"

08/05/2016

It was an amazing view but the train woke us up at night, and WiFi is slow and seemed not working. That all I complained about. Besides, cleanliness is average and also the bedding and pillow. I enjoyed a view and a quiet small town.

Sandy P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us while visiting Historic Cascade Locks. I wish I could move those train tracks, it is a shame to have them go through the entire Gorge. We hope you will return to the area and invite you to stay with us again on the hillside of the property.

"Beautiful View - Horrific Trains - Poor Internet"

3
06/05/2016

Oy! I was exhausted from traipsing around Gifford Pinchot, and I needed a last-minute place to sleep before heading home. Luckily, the Best Western had not only an open room but a room with a view! I was so stoked. That stokedness quickly abated when the first freight train, on the WA side, no less, rumbled by. Then another train a stone's throw from my room rumbled by. Then another. And another. Sooooo, no sleep was had, which really sucked because I stayed there because I was too tired to make the drive home. The room was nice enough, but I wish I'd noticed the complimentary EAR PLUGS by the sink. OMG. I would have asked to have been moved immediately. My bad for not seeing them. When I checked out and the front desk person asked about my stay, I said I wish I hadn't been by the train tracks. She told me that when people book directly through them, they inform people of the noise. I told her I booked through the toll-free Best Western number, but she insisted that I booked through a "second party." Too tired to care, I left. Internet: I ended up using my phone as a hot spot as the internet signal was poor. The window opens (nice), but then the trains rumble and screech by (not so nice). Also not so nice are those tiny square pillows. I have no idea what that's about. So, meh. I ended up driving home about as tired as I was when I'd arrived. Poor planning on my part. I'll camp in the national forest next time and save my money. I'm sure I'll sleep better.

Thank you for staying with us, I am so sorry that our location was not what you needed after your lengthy hiking. If I could move those tracks out of the Columbia River Gorge I would do today.

Best bed I have EVER slept on. The view is amazing and the voucher provided for breakfast next door much better than most hotel breakfasts. The only drawback is the sound of trains during the night. The provided earplugs were thoughtful, but the ability to have the fan running continuously would have provided the white noise that would have helped a lot. Would stay again!

This was our fifth stay at Cascade Locks over the last six years that we've been making this trip. It NEVER declines from stay to stay. In fact, this trip they changed from serving breakfast at the facility to giving us a voucher to step next door at the Bridgeport Restaurant for our morning meal. The change was phenomenal with ample seating, a wide range of choices to fill us for the road and a polite and gracious staff. This is STILL one of our favorite stops with lovely scenery, a restful and quiet stay and plenty of amenities that include conference rooms, outdoor seating, indoor swimming pool, beautiful landscaping and more, all within an historical setting. A must stop for any weary traveler!

20/04/2016

I splurged on this hotel--very unusual for me. It was worth the splurge. A clean and convenient indoor pool in which to have a morning swim. No children on weekday mornings! Noticed it was also well equipped for the handicapped with chairs to lower disabled into the pool. Had a rinse off shower at poolside. There is a beautiful view of the river from the balcony side. There is a train track below, but it didn't bother me a bit. Can see how some might be bothered, but earplugs are provided. The wi fi connection is strong and free, but I had a bit of trouble connecting. It needs a password and special name--both supplied--but my computer did not respond to that format for connection and I had to do some computer browsing before I could get it going. There are more than enough plug ins for electronic material. I would have liked more packages of fake sugar for my coffee, and, for that matter, more coffee packages, but I'm sure I could have obtained some if I had asked. I needed help getting all my stuff in and out of my room and the staff was both helpful and enthusiastic about being helpful. Complimentary breakfast is supplied by the restaurant next door. Another great view, good breakfast choices.

Beautiful place, but we had no idea it was on a major train track with noise all night long. At least they give us earplugs. The pool is clean and nice. The room is very big, suite without balcony for us. The mattress good. The pillows to thick and big, so we used our own. The staff was nice and good coffee and teas to choose from. We may stay again, but make sure we have sleep aide and earplugs due to train traffic 24/7.

Playing golf at Skamania Lodge and wanted somewhere close and reasonable to stay the night before. This was perfect. Room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Shower was hot and had decent pressure. Best thing was that full breakfast is included at the restaurant next door. Definitely a great deal. If you take off the $20 for breakfast, the room was only $106! Can't beat that. Would stay again.

It looked good online but upon arriving, quickly found a dirty pillowcase left by another guest with a blood spot on it, took it to the front desk, staff disinterested in that as a problem (!), dirty scum in the bath tub left a feeling of being in a dirty room and sleeping in potentially 'unchanged' sheets! Yuck! I thought Best Western Plus, meant "plus"! Didn't smell clean. Wouldn't stay there again.

Just back from a few days away from home as I dragged my husband away from work so we could do some hiking. Great location- Cascade Locks has a lot to see and do for such a tiny place. Fantastic hikes are minutes away, river view rooms, easy check in, friendly staff and breakfast vouchers for next door. Small workout facility which we did not use, due to all of our hiking, but it appeared to be clean and well-maintained. The whole facility was very clean. Loved our bedding and the king size bed. Anyone who stays in the Gorge- yes, there are trains. There are earplugs provided in the rooms. If you are a light sleeper as I am, you will probably hear them go by, but my husband did not notice them. Would definitely recommend.

A nice place to stay with a very clean indoor pool and hot tub to soothe all the aches from all day hiking. Town rolls up sidewalks at 8pm however so beware if arriving late and are hungry. Rooms were clean, beds comfy. River view with small balcony was great. Electronic safe in room and two sinks was nice when two people getting ready to go out at same time. Bathroom very small and hard to dry off without bumping walls. Wish they had a handle for getting in and out of tub. Only negative was train noise although there are earplugs in room. Had issues with the lamps socket area coming off on two of the lamps when turning on or off. Great free breakfast next door. I would stay again next time.

(They provide a breakfast with the restaurant next door) I ordered a scone and it was very dry and not very good. The others in our party seemed to like their breakfasts okay, however.

If you're planning to hike or climb on either side of the Columbia River near here, this is a perfect location -- the hotel sits practically at the east end of the Bridge of the Gods ($1 toll) across the river. Breakfast at Bridgeside next door is a cut above the usual hotel buffet.

Thank you for staying with us while hiking in the Gorge. Cascade Locks is located in the Heart of the Gorge and makes it easy access to all the trails for hiking and biking. We hope you will retune to the area and invite you to stay with us again.

Stayed here as part of our tour of Oregon! What a great hotel with breakfast included at the restaurant next door. The room was quiet, clean, and comfy. It looked almost brand new from the inside. The staff was attentive, and you are within a stone's throw from the Bridge of the Gods. Stay here, and you can walk the ENTIRE town of Cascade Locks. It has its own charm. You will never want to leave.

We very much enjoyed this pet friendly hotel in the Columbia Gorge. We could walk from the hotel to beautiful hiking trails. This was an advantage since it was a very busy weekend and parking was hard to find. Breakfast was at the restaurant next door with many quality complimentary offerings for BW guests. The staff was very friendly. We will definitely be coming back.

We had a nice room, it was a family room, it had wonderful view with 3 large windows overlooking the river. Love the pool, used it for several hours. Breakfast was a God send in the morning.

very nice hotel at a good rate and nice facilities. I did not use the pool or gym but could take a look at a small but nice indoor pool and gym equipment that looked new. The room has been pleasant and big with fridge and microwave, so you can also prepare some food in the room. Breakfast is served next door and pretty good, though as you pick from a menue for a little extra you can also order extra food items. My room was facing the road, which could be in summer with the window open a bit noisy, but OK for one night. For a longer stay I would recommend a room facing the river.

If you are driving up the Columbia Gorge with your pet, this is your place. There's lots of grass to walk the dog and it has a good view of the river. You get a breakfast voucher to the restaurant next door. At the restaurant you can pick from five or six breakfast choices. Several of the choices are full breakfast meals. The hotel is much more reasonable in price compared to the hotels in Hood River and it's only 20 miles away.

We had a nice stay here, reflective of the quality of Best Western brand. The room was clean and spacious. We didn't hear any of the trains. We liked the close proximity to the Bridge of the Gods. The gym was small, but it had appropriate equipment. Included with your stay is a breakfast voucher to get breakfast at the restaurant next door. Basically we ordered at the counter, and the food was brought out to us. The available food options were basically an abbreviated version of the restaurant's regular menu. I wish I could've gotten an omelet, but it wasn't on the hotel's menu. I also noticed that all the meat options were pig-based. I like variety in my breakfast! All in all, though, it was a nice stay, and for the date we stayed, it was cheaper than the Best Western in Hood River.

Sandy P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us while recently in Historic Cascade Locks. Gosh I am pleased the trains did not bother you, if I could move them out of the National Scenic Area I would do it today.

This hotel has a great view of the Columbia River. It's right off Bridge of the Gods. The restaurant next door has a really good breakfast for good value. There is a brewery within walking distance, and the pub down the street has a good beer selection (but closes early). If you want dinner, I recommend going across the river to Stevenson's Big River Grill.

We stayed at BWP for two nights over New Year's Eve. This hotel is on the Columbia River at Cascade Locks. It had a soaking tub in the room, and a good view of the River. The staff was nice, and the breakfasts were great. The only problem we encountered was that there is a train track just below the hotel on the river side. It was frequently used by the many trains that travel through the area, but it wasn't horrible once you made yourself accustomed to the noise. The only other thing that was a fairly big distraction was that the plumbing was loud from the room above our room. The people staying in that room used their tub a lot (their right) but it was extremely noisy in our room. At one point we left the hotel all together because they ran the water and the jets in the tub so much. We could hardly talk to each other, or listen to the TV. Next time we will request a room on the top floor. All in all, we had a good stay.

Sandy P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us over the very cold New Year's Holiday. I am sorry the train gave you a bad time, if I could move those tracks out of The Columbia River Gorge I would do it today.

We wanted to stay near the Bridge of the Gods and this hotel is literally right next to the bridge. It was clean, comfortable and the river side room that we had included an excellent view of the Columbia and the bridge. Due to icy conditions we couldn't get out and hike as we had planned but the room was cozy and we enjoyed staying inside and relaxing. The breakfast provided by the hotel was excellent and we definitely will stay again if we're in the area.

We planned a wine tasting trip in the Columbia Gorge area so we made reservations at the Columbia River Inn. I have stayed in many Best Western properties so I was expecting the same quality and service that I have had in the past. My expectations were met with a very nice property, comfortable and spacious room, quality customer service, and a free breakfast in the restaurant next door. My only concern was that we could not use the pool as it was filled with kids and that included the hot tub. An adults only time should be in place so those of us without children can enjoy the pool services too. I will consider staying there again.

We booked this motel online and was not disappointed. We had a river view room with a king bed and Jacuzzi tub. The place is nicely decorated and updated. Check in was a breeze and the front desk staff were extremely helpful. I need to sned a package UPS and they went out odf their to find me a box and insure that UPS picked up my package. Indoor pool looked clean and with the views of the Columbia River this place is one I would definitely stay in again. The only so-so problem was that the free breakfast was in the restaurant next door. Not a problem except it was not very good. We had been staying in Best Westerns for weeks and this one did not have the selections of food and drinks that we had come to expect from this motel chain.

Best Western in Cascade Locks is one of the best places we've stayed in a long time. I love the Columbia River and Bridge of the Gods and the room had beautiful views of both. The rooms were generous in size, clean and comfortable and the location can't be beat. We'll go there again and again; there is so much to do in the area and this hotel is so conveniently located. Next time though, we must stay longer, one night just isn't enough. The hotel staff is kind and caring; they upgraded our rooms when they couldn't accommodate the floor we requested and when we go back we'll request the same rooms! They knew we'd love the location and they were right, we did! There is a train that goes by several times a day, and maybe at night too, but we were so tired and cozy we didn't even hear it. I hurt my back earlier in the day and the hot tub was the perfect medicine to make it feel better! Oh, I have to mention the free coffee and tea in the lobby, what a warm welcome after traveling and hiking most of the day! Thank you!

Trains run all night long very close to the hotel. Many of these trains contained a high number of oil cars. We would never stay here again due to the noise and safety issues. This hotel charges like it offers an above average stay, but ammenities are average at best.

This motel is right on the Colombia River!! Our room had a wonderful balcony, a gorgeous view of the river so we sat had our wine and watched the huge paddle boats go by, the fishing boats coming and going and a beautiful sunset on a beautiful bridge that is close by. It was so relaxing and the scenery is breathtaking. The room was really comfortable and the beds were mile high and we never felt so comfortable in a motel in our life!!!!! There is a restaurant right next door with wonderful food, their soup was the best we have ever tasted. Breakfast is served there in the morning and that was good as well. There is a train track that is right next to our room which runs along the river. It was fun to watch but we never heard it at night. The river was beautiful. We want to go back. The town of Cascade Locks was fun, interesting and the locks are something to see.

This hotel is a nice value and sits overlooking the Colombia River. It is a good place to stay to look around the Gorge and to take a down old Route 30 to see the numerous waterfalls. The front desk staff members were helpful each time we asked for information. Where to grab a pizza, where to take a walk, etc. If you do not stay in a room with a balcony, there is a patio overlooking the river. It is a great view. There is also an indoor pool. From the hotel, you can walk to several restaurants, including a microbrewery that sits next to the river. You can also walk to at least one waterfall, the Pacific Crest Trail, and a few shops. We picked up a nice metal 3-d sculpture at one of the shops. The same people own the restaurant next door, so you get a voucher for breakfast. They have several breakfast choices, but both mornings we were there, I had eggs, toast, and their pepper bacon. The toast is a great multigrain bread.

The accommodations and staff were awesome. The view of the Columbia River and the Bridge of the Gods were breathtaking. What we didn't know when we made the reservation was the proximity of the trains. My husband is a model railroader and the trains provided a complete experience. We will be back.

Sandy P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
How wonderful that the trains were an unexpected goodtime for your husband. Thank you for staying with us and we invite you to bring him back to enjoy both rail lines Union Pacific and Burlington Northern.

Nice view close to Hood River and right next to the Bridge of The Gods to access WA across the river. It's cheaper to stay here then in Hood River. Easy on and off access to the highway. Staff was very upbeat and the room was nice with clean facilities. Good coffee bar. Only negative is the breakfast next door. It's not a Best Western facility. Breakfast was hot but food wasn't very good.

Lovely hotel right on the Columbia River with a view of the 'Bridge of the Gods'. Wish we had known to ask for a room with a view. Just a short drive to all the wonderful waterfalls that the Columbia River Gorge is known for. Large clean rooms with all the amenities needed. Free breakfast next door at the Bridgeside Restaurant. I'd definitely recommend this hotel.

"Nice place to stay."

This was a nice hotel. I was traveling solo for a business trip; but would definitely stay here with my family as well. Location is very close to the "Bridge of the Gods" that goes between Oregon and Washington. Didn't have the opportunity to explore the area. But, I would definitely like to return with my family.

Great beds, great staff. Can't ask for more! Even though they do not provide breakfast in the price, they offer a $5 breakfast special which was fantastic. Also, if you like smoked salmon, the Salmon bagel/cream cheese plate was awesome. They smoke the fish right there - so good!

"No wifi or internet"

23/10/2015

In this era it simply is not acceptable to have such terrible wifi/internet access. I've stayed here twice with the same problem. And, they hide the password and access code on page 4 of the guest directory instead of giving you the password with your key cards. So, I'm pretty sure they know exactly how bad it is.Everythig else was OK, but there is no excusee for not providing wifi service that is at least good enough to check your email. I'm writing this from my room by using my I-phone (cell service) as a hot spot.

I would recommend this hotel based on the view/location, comfortable beds, cleanliness and value. The breakfast was delicious and the view from the restaurant-spectacular. The indoor pool and spa were clean but unimpressive. I'd go back!

I recently stayed here as part of a hiking group. I had a single room and was on the non-scenic side of the hotel. As someone who has problems sleeping with noise, this was the best option for me, since the other side has noise from the trains all night long. It is a fabulous location, with outdoor sitting area near the pool, where you can look over the water and the Bridge of the Gods, which you can walk over to be in Washington state and the Pacific Crest Trail. Breakfast is available at the restaurant next door, which is mediocre, but not terrible. The rooms are clean, spacious, and well-appointed, the lobby area has coffee and tea available 24 hours a day, coffee maker, microwave, and refrigerator are in your room, and a short stroll away are the shops of this small town. Hiking trails are just 10 minutes away. Best Western hotels are often independently owned, and this is one of the good ones.

We took a night away from Portland to play with the kids in pool and do the Fruit Loop out toward Hood River! Great accommodations for a family! We loved the room with two queens and a king! Breakfast at the neighboring restaurant was great value and great quality of food! Super for our getaway!

This hotel was the perfect place to stay on our travels from Bend to Puget Sound area of Washington. Expect to hear the trains traveling alongside the Columbia River, but the stunning view is well worth hearing the whistle of trains. Bed and linens were terrific, the (included) breakfast at the restaurant next door (also with stunning views) was totally satisfying and the front desk was helpful and efficient - everything lived up to my expectations. A perfect place to embark on the Historic Highway 30 drive to visit the waterfalls and see the view of the magnificent Columbia Gorge.

Sandy P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Columbia River Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us while making your way to the Puget Sound area. I know those trains can be a problem for some people and I wish I could move those tracks out of the Gorge. The good news is you found the million dollar view. We hope you will return to the Gorge and invite you to stay with us again.

The hotel is along the river and below the bridge of the Gods. It was beautiful. The balcony was wonderful to watch everything going up and down the river and the bridge. The room was comfortable and the food and view at the restaurant next door was also a great experience. Would stay again.

"Its All True, Tis Place To Stay in Cascade Locks"

10/10/2015

The BW Plus seemed like the nicest place available in Cascade Locks, with the best location and the most modern facilities. We were not disappointed. Yes, it costs a bit more, but delivers in spades. We really appreciated the complimentary made to order hot breakfast at the adjacent Bridgeside Restaurant. Its not an all-you-can-eat buffet, but this was just as fast and a whole lot better. The restaurant is also stocked with historical artifacts and doubles as a free museum. If you are arriving late and leaving early, as we were, you can save a few bucks by forgoing the gorgeous gorge view rooms. But you are truly giving up a million dollar view and your own private viewing balcony to do so. For the rural area it is located, the BW plus is definitely the most luxurious and romantic hotel around and it is current enough to be, perhaps, deemed "trendy."

Booked this hotel based on its location to the Columbia River. Nice, clean hotel. Unfortunately our king bed was worn out and sagged on my side. Good location. Walking distance to restaurants. Ale house has great salmon chowder, pizza & local microbrew beer. Terrific fresh fruit stand directly across the street. Nice hot breakfast in the restaurant next door was included in the room price. Had a beautiful view of the Columbia River during breakfast. Nice restaurant staff.

My aunt and I were celebrating my birthday with a trip to Oregon and the Columbia River Gorge. We very much enjoyed our stay at BW-Cascade Locks. The staff was very friendly and also very helpful in giving directions to the local sights and dinner recommendations. The location was perfect for touring the Gorge. An added plus was our magnificent view of the river from our 2nd floor room balcony.

While the hotel was lovely, the view beautiful, and the staff friendly and helpful ...our car was broken into in the hotel parking lot at 8 AM with people around. The robbers took about 10 minutes to break out the window and clean out our belongings. Suggestion to the hotel...get security cameras...we were not the first and we will not be the last unfortunately.

The trains ran all night long 30 feet below the balcony and across the river. No sleep! Then early the next morning they started cutting the lawn and using the blower 10 feet below the window. Holy cow! This was by far the noisiest place I have every stayed and I'm exhausted.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. The first was over a decade ago. It is still a beautiful area and the hotel is the best. We added a day to our stay so we had two different rooms due to the hotel being full. It was okay because there are so many sights in the area to visit. The first night we stayed in a 2 queen room. This room was very clean and had all the necessary things like coffeemaker, microwave and fridge. It didn't have a balcony but it still had a water view which was beautiful. The next day we moved to the King room we had reserved. This also was extremely clean but had a balcony. The only difference between the two was the balcony and the queen had two sinks where as the King room had just one sink. I loved all the space available to us in both rooms. Be aware this is right next to a active train track which didn't both us but I could see some people not appreciating the noise. We live close to a train track and it felt like home. The restaurant was a great deal. We had the free breakfast deal which lets you chose from a extensive menu that had all kinds choices. You didn't leave hungry. My husband said they made the best eggs ever. This is very convenient to the Portland Airport without staying in the city. My memories from over a decade ago did not fail me this hotel and the beautiful area are a most do.
