Oak Street Hotel
Ranked #9 of 13 Hood River B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 February 2008

I'll second the previous comments about the size of the rooms (we were in #5, which does have a fine view), but ours was very clean and we didn't lack for anything basic. One caution, though - if you have an upstairs room there's no elevator and the stairs (either inside or out) are very steep. The lobby is small but nicely appointed, and that's where the breakfast is laid out in the AM. The two folks we met at the front desk (one on check in, one the next morning) were cheerful and accommodating. As other posters have noted, there are numerous excellent places to dine within easy walking distance - not true of most Hood River lodging. Overall the Oak Street Hotel is a great value and worthy of a return trip.

Thank you so much for the review. You have mentioned all the wonderful places to visit within six blocks of our hotel, so true! We also have the charming quirks of the 1909 renovated home in which we are housed. While quirky and not corporate, we like to think of it as home. Do stay again some time!

We stayed for 2 nights at the Oak Street Hotel for a wedding in early September 2007. The Oak Street Hotel was great! We had room 4 and it had views of the river and mountains from both the room and bathroom. The room is pretty small, but that is what we expected. I think it was a queen bed, 2 night stands, T.V. anchored to the wall, 4 drawer dresser, and to our surprise, a small fridge. The bathroom had a stand up shower (no bath) and great shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion all provided. The breakfasts both mornings were nice. Good coffee with cream, sugar, ect . . . , fresh fruit and homemade pasteries. The second morning there was that in addition to yogurt and granola. Tea was provided all day. There was a cute porch right outside to relax and people watch on Oak Street. Not only was the room and breakfast very nice, one of our favorite parts about the hotel was the location!!! We walked downtown Hood River and enjoyed our stay very much. It was great watching the windsurfers, not only from our room, but we also walked down to the water and just sat on a picnic bench and relaxed. Great place for a picnic lunch. Both days we enjoyed our veggie wraps with peanut sauce from the (something) Kitchen just a few blocks away. I can't remember the first name of it, but they have sandwiches, salads, great looking desserts, ect . . . and it was wonderful!!! Brian's Pourhouse literally right next door to the Oak Street Hotel was great too! We had a wonderful weekend getaway for our first time to Hood River and we would love to go back. We would certainly stay at the Oak Street Hotel again as well.

Thank you for the review, we are so glad you liked it! I noticed you disliked the pillows; so we have upgraded and included four pillows of two different types in each room. Please visit again and tell us what you think!

This is a great place to stay... very intimate and cozy. I would not recommend staying for too long, though, because the rooms are very small! We stayed the whole weekend, and really enjoyed how close the hotel was to anything you would want to see in Hood River. We walked everywhere. The hotel is very clean, very charming. You'll enjoy it. If you are needing space, however, you should probably choose something else.

We stayed here in Sept 2006. Location perfect, quiet and close to all amenities, and our room (Room 5, c.$160 per night) had a lovely view of the river and the sunrise. The room was clean and comfortable, nicely decorated, but very small (as was the shower room). Fine if you only have luggage for a weekend but if you're here as part of a longer stay, finding space for larger cases is an issue. The building also houses the owner's estate agency business which felt a little strange. Coffee was good and breakfast was well-presented, but light and lacking in certain key items, like milk or butter - only powdered creamer provided - yuck. They did provide milk when asked, but we got the distinct feeling we'd asked for something unusual. Hood River itself is lovely. We ate at Brian's Pourhouse next door, which was excellent, and at the Big Horse Brew Pub, which was average. There's also the Full Sail Microbrewery which is worth a visit.

Thank you kindly for the review. You are correct, we have a perfect, quiet location close to all Hood River has to offer. Our rooms are cozy as we are a renovated 1909 home, but we try our best to make them charming and enjoyable. Wanted to let you know, we heard your feedback, and we have developed our morning offering into a farm to table breakfast buffet that is delightful.

We stayed at the Oak Street Hotel for a wedding. Location can't be beat - within walking distance to everything but stil quiet. However the rooms are very small and some come with their own quirks such as no door between toilet and bed. I'd stay here again only if they'd guarantee me a nicer room. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

We stayed at the The Oak Street Hotel in October 2003. I am so glad we found this place because not much has been written about it. Check out their website. I felt that we got an exception deal! The price was so low, it scared me ($65). They are still in the middle of renovations to this old home, but they were not doing any construction while we were there. You should ask about this before booking a room if you are concerned about possible noise. The rooms are very, very small, but very nice. From what I saw, this place looked like it was in one of the best locations in Hood River, within walking distance to several nice restaurants and shops. Ask for a view of the river.
