We came here for a 2-day mid-week getaway in the middle of an unusual (read LONG!) winter. Booked online and got a great rate. In warmer weather, I imagine this place would be packed as it is right on the river. The room (2 queen beds) feels new and was very clean, modern and comfortable. Check-in was very welcoming, even...

View rooms have the same view as from neighboring in Columbia Gorge Hotel at one third the cost. Luxury bedding was a surprise! We walked to the Buffalo Bistro for dinner. Recommend the Chicken Curry rise dish. The Bistro had a good selection of quality wines that can be purchased by the bottle at reasonable retail prices and opened and...

Thanks for your review! Yep, the Buffalo has the best wine selection around! All of their wines are hand-picked, and they're excellent at finding great wines for people. Thanks again!

Found this place online, great choice! Paid extra for the view and was worth it. The room was large and very comfy, the bed was comfortable, tables showed sings of love (wear) but we thought it made it homey. Didn't get a chance to explore the grounds as it was snowing heavily, but think they are probably very nice. Love...

Thanks for your support! Yes, we're into our 3rd generation of our small family business, and look forward to making it even better. It certainly has been a snowy winter; if you visit in late April the blossoms on the cherry trees should be blooming and all the wildflowers will be coming back out after their winter away. Thanks again!

There were beautiful views of the Columbia River out the windows of our suite. We had a super cozy one bedroom suite with a wood-burning fireplace, and small kitchen. Our dog was welcomed with a very small fee. Very friendly staff. There was even a swing set and slide for the kids to play on. It was a perfect spot...

Thanks for your review, glad you had a great birthday celebration! We've got a couple more improvements planned for the grounds for kids to enjoy, hopefully if the weather cooperates this spring we can get it built. Thanks again!

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Westcliff Lodge. From check in to check out and everything in-between we felt very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble, we had booked a 1 bedroom suite with fireplace and river view, and ordered extra timber in advance. What we had ordered plus extra was waiting for us at the room. The...

Thanks much for your review, glad you had a great time visiting us! Yes, I agree that walking to town with the amount of snow we've had is a little tricky, and with good weather the 2-mile walk into town is nice We do only have 3 wood-fireplace suites, so the best way to reserve one is definitely give our...

The people running this place really make it special. They are so efficient, yet friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and large. I like having a fridge in the room. The bathrooms are lovely. The courtyard is calm and serene.

Very clean, very affordable, great location....But the shower in our ADA room was not hot enough to enjoy. Perhaps it is regulated to prevent the accidental scalding of disabled persons, the sink got plenty hot, I tried it to find out. If that is the case, I wish we had been informed, or that the information was in the room.

Really really pleasant room. Clean! Comfortable. Big room. Secluded buildings. Great views. Good location. I chose this hotel based on price because my kids and I needed some rest on our trip, I was so surprised. I almost booked a 2nd night just to be in comfort another night. It was so pleasant.

The rooms are cozy, the view is beautiful and the price is right. It's the perfect spot to stay after a day on the mountain or in the water. Right off 84 makes it super convenient. Do yourself a favor and stay here!

“We like ADA-accessible rooms because the shower has a seat. This hotel is right off I-84 so rooms closer to the river might be quieter.”
