Travellers' Choice
Wide variety of price points, from luxurious 1-3BR suites to charming Euro-style rooms, all furnished with robes, premium bedding and amenities. Most options offer breathtaking views of Columbia River Gorge from this cliff-edge settting 220' directly above world-famous windsuring sites. Stroll a short garden path to top of year-around waterfall to enjoy indoor & outdoor, fine and casual dining at adjacent restaurants or venture just one mile to take in the charm of downtown Hood River's boutique shopping, great restaurants, interesting wineries and brew pubs.

Our room was quite nice and a good value. Your front desk personnel was very nice even though the online process for check-in was difficult and convoluted. We had dinner next door at the Columbia Gorge Hotel--big mistake. It was one of the worst dinners in memory.

Hotel's Favourite
Columbia Cliff Villas was wonderful! My daughter and I sat in the adirondack chairs for hours with a beautiful view of the Columbia River, and across to Washington. The bed and room was so comfortable and the staff very helpful and accommodating. I will stay again!

This is a fascinating hotel where your experience depends entirely on which exact room you are given. As the hotel has noted in its response to almost every review, they have a WIDE variety of rooms. I stayed here as part of a wedding block and the issues I had were nonexistent in everyone else's rooms. I got unlucky and most visitors would likely not have my experience, but I felt it was important to let people know they're essentially spinning the roulette wheel when staying here. The positives: the location is beautiful overlooking the gorge, the staff were all very friendly, the in-room Keurig setup included tea pods (not everyone has those!), and the location is convenient to the highway. I had to return my rented dress via (prepaid) FedEx when I checked out, and the front desk staff were unfazed and accommodating - I loved that they took it in stride and took one worry/stress off my plate. The negatives: The thermostat in my room didn't work and was stuck on freezing, the only way I could increase the temperature above 65 was to turn the shower on as hot as it could go and I eked out 2-3 degrees. There were no full-length mirrors anywhere in the room (something that baffled every other person in the wedding who said their rooms each had at least one). The app system that replaced keycards for the room locks barely worked - 100% of the time I got an "Oops!" error message but 50% of the time the door would unlock anyway which was baffling. One final note (not a positive or negative, just a note) is that this would not be a good choice for any car-free travelers who are coming to Hood River via the Columbia Gorge Express, or for any groups where everyone wants to drink downtown without a designated driver. This hotel is outside the local bus route and they don't offer a shuttle so there's no easy way to get to the town of Hood River without a car. For my fellow car-less travelers: if you are stuck staying here and none of your fellow travelers are available to help you, I recommend buying the GOrge Pass and contacting CAT to arrange pickup from/dropoff to the Columbia Gorge Express stop. This would not really be viable for regularly going into town so consider that while choosing accommodation.

Dear aew, Thank you for your positive comments but please allow me to address your negative notes: Columbia Cliff Villas does offer a wide variety of rooms and suites but I want to assure all TA travelers that room selections are not a random assignment or made by a roulette wheel. In your case, your wedding coordinator assigned the rooms. Normally, guests make their room choices from the Accommodations page of our website, where they can find details, pictures and floor plans for all our options. If you had a problem with our thouchless key system, thermostat or a missing mirror, our 24-hour front desk crew would have been happy to provide prompt assistance. While we do suggest guests drive or car-pool to take in the plethora of attractions and wineries scattered throughout the Columbia River Gorge, many guests enjoy the 1-mile walk into downtown but Hood River does offer a taxi service, as well as an on-demand bus/shuttle service through CAT. We also have some wonderful tour providers in the area. Again, our friendly, knowledgeable, concierge team are always ready to assist. For those inclined to walk, there are also several great restaurants within a few blocks, including Simon's Cliff House in the adjacent historic hotel building where our guests can enjoy a short connecting path through beautiful gardens and over a 200' waterfall to find indoor and outdoor, fine and casual dining, and an excellent local wine list. We hope you will return and allow us to show you more of all the Gorge and Hood River have to offer. Happy travels, Steve

The rooms are very nice overall. The location is convenient, just off I-84. Nice views of the Columbia River on the property, and some rooms. Pleasant and helpful staff. As some rooms face and are visible to the adjacent frontal road, I suggest white sheer window coverings be added to bedroom and bath windows. The black-out type curtain in the sleeping room does a good job of blocking light. However it would be nice to have a third choice other than full visibility or zero visibility with no outside sunlight in the sleeping room. This motel is located next to the historic Columbia Gorge Hotel. The Columbia Cliff Villas hotel is also on the bluffs overlooking the Columbia River. Morning walks are pleasant.

Dear Robert, Thank you for staying and sharing your experience. We offer a wide variety of rooms and suites. Those that are not equipped with both sheer and black-out drapes are set up with adjustable blinds to allow guests to filter most outside light. Please check the Accommodations page of our website for details and pics, of give us a call before your next visit. Thanks again and happy travels, Steve

Nicely furnished, modern and comfortable room with a well equipped kitchen. A very small river view, but there are a few chairs near the river with a great view. Right next to the freeway. Floors were very squeaky.
