Reviewed 19 July 2015

Stayed two nights at this location. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful with local information. Breakfast area was small but they offered a nice selection of breakfast items. The attendant did a good job of keeping the items stocked. If we returned to this area, would stay at this location again.

We work hard to make things right for our guests, and it's always gratifying when we hear back from someone who stayed for more than an overnight and had a consistently comfortable stay throughout, thank you. Happy that you enjoyed your stay with us, and we do certainly look forward to having you back the next time you're this way....

The 1 pm check-out time was a pleasant surprise and allowed us to have breakfast, see Multnomah Falls (just 20-30 minutes away) and hike Onenota Gorge, come back for a shower and then get packed up. Fantastic! The staff provided a list of nearby restaurants with local flavor (not chain restaurants). The breakfast was typical of a Comfort Inn, nothing...

That 1:00 checkout time rocks, doesn't it, Diane? Happy you had the opportunity to try some of the local restaurants - we have a lot of good food here, and nothing gets on the list we hand out unless staff and guests have had good meals and service there over time. Yes, the outside spa is a hot tub, not...

This was a warm, quiet and quality hotel. The room was just perfect. Quiet and large. The service was great and the hotel was away from any noise...a keeper. They also had a bit of soup and a great breakfast

Always delighted to hear we were a surprise of the good sort : ) - that would be the plan. Glad you had a cozy nest to come back to on your time out of town, and we look forward to seeing you again when you're back this way. All the best, Loree

Good stop over when on the road. Firm bed, good shower, clean room, nice young man at the front desk. If coming thru again I would stay here. Didn't try the breakfast and the pool is very small. Comp newspapers (local and USA).

Glad you enjoyed the stay and the bed, Scott! Just a note to those reading that we have firm mattresses on the queen and double beds, and pillow tops on the kings for those who prefer a cushier surface to sleep on. The showers are great, aren't they? Best thing about working late and staying over is that shower in...

Hotel was very clean inside and out. Staff was very helpful to answer questions about area, breakfast was typical fare but very well stocked. We spent two nights here during 100 degree days and our air conditioning was not working. Maintenance quickly came and looked at the issue and replaced the unit in about 15 minutes.

Thank you for making the time to review, and gratified to get all five stars with the interruption of the air conditioning. Things do break, and the AC units have been working awfully hard this summer - glad that we got it taken care of for you quickly. Appreciate you being here, glad you enjoyed breakfast, and look forward to...

Overall, this was a great place for us to stay when attending a wedding in Troutdale. It was easy to find and very clean. The breakfast was tasty and provided a nice variety of foods. I felt we got a quality option for the amount of money that we spent. We visited the waterfalls and drove through the Columbia Gorge....

This hotel was very comfortable with friendly staff and a nice breakfast of hot and cold items.....the food didn't run out. On the day you checkout, they let you stay until 1pm.

Stayed here while attending a wedding in the area. The staff were accommodating as to our room selection and the complimentary breakfast and evening snacks are a real plus. The room was clean and the noise level was at a tolerable level.

We stayed there on May 27 and again June 1. Hotel looks great inside and out. Our beds were very comfortable-firm but with a thick, soft pad on top. Great amenities.

Easy on and off the 84 highway exit 17. Hotel is very quiet, clean, and comfortable. There is only a outdoor hot tub, but didn't bother us.
