“Great Property - Outstanding Customer Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

I stayed for one night at the end of January. I stayed in the newer section of the hotel and was pleasantly surprised by my room which even came equipped with a small fireplace. When I checked in I was pleasantly surprised by how courteous and helpful the desk clerk (Jenna) was. Leaving in California, I had long given up on getting good customer service. Jenna was a welcome change from what I have become accustomed to. Had breakfast in their restaurant which was also outstanding. This was my first trip to The Dalles and was delighted with my accommodations.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

We enjoy the Gorge and the area around The Dalles. We often stay at another motel which we have also reviewed and we frequent most often, however, we opted to check out Cousin's for a bit of variety.

We were happy that we only stayed one night, not luxury with amenities like where we normally stay in The Dalles. Certainly there were no afternoon wine tastings after we checked in! They are dog friendly, however not as much as we are accustomed to. They do have an excellent "potty" area for the dogs. Which was appreciated! Also a nice area to walk. We walked a couple miles that day up towards the homes and surrounding neighborhoods to the south.

The room wasn't the type to "hang out" in. It was fine for sleep (when the kids weren't playing upstairs). We appreciate a nice room with a view and a place to sit and play some cards and enjoy a glass of wine.

They, like other hotels have specific "dog" rooms. We travel with Standard Poodles, well groomed, clean and quiet.

It was a bit noisy, mostly with people coming and going throughout the evening and into the night. There is a restaurant attached to the motel, so expect traffic noise. There were loud kids, jumping around the room above us. MUCH noisier than our dogs ever thought of being.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Thank you, all! The cookie offer on check-in was a nice treat, too!

I had never played lottery poker, but there was no one else around playing, so put in $1 and got $7 back the first play. Second play was another $1 and got back $8! Okay. Maybe I'll play again someday.

You can't miss the hotel, it's right off the freeway. Great place to stay for a through trip...not so much, in our opinion, if you are hanging around to enjoy the Gorge!

We will be heading back to our normal motel in the future, but in all it was a good overnight stay for a "motel" and will not fault them for that. You get what you pay for.

Room Tip: They have nice "dog" rooms on the ground floor and a dog room area very close.

We stayed at Cousin's for one night and had a great stay. We stayed in a "barn room" and it was very nicely decorated with a fireplace and comfortable bed, large screen TV, etc. and it was very comfortable. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was very good as well, prime rib that was delicious for a very reasonable price.

Had a lovely evening stay over. The room was beautiful and loved the shower! Felt very safe and at home. Had a good breakfast and the motel staff was so helpful.

Besides them trying to put hold on my credit card aprox. 7 times, they were unprofessional when handling my problems with these charges. Which is too bad because my family and I, And my fiance's family and her have eaten here for years and thought of it as a family place. This is the first time I have ever stayed in the hotel, and last time I will ever return. And none of family or friends will return either.

This hotel was a quite a pleasant surprise. From the outside, it looks like a mid-priced rustic hotel, but the interior has been revamped. The rooms are extra large and very nice, with a spacious, comfortable sitting area with a gas fireplace and glass doors overlooking the pool. The bathroom is updated with two sinks and a huge tiled shower. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were very clean. Overall, a great experience.

We stayed here as a quick stopover, but really got a kick out of the place. The room was clean and comfortable, the recently renovated tile bathroom and shower was really nice. Staff was extremely gracious and helpful. TV was updated and bed was comfortable. It was a quick stopover, so we ate at the attached restaurant, had a really great steak. The decor is "farm style", silly and fun. I'd come again.
