Great surprise to find this lovely hotel on the Columbia River. Beautiful and clean. Had a wonderful huge room facing the river. The grounds are beautiful. Restaurant was delightful. Nice menu and good service. Huge servings.... ordered the Prim Rib, it was perfectly cooked and almost didn't fit the dinner plate. Mushroom soup was fresh and delicious. Would recommend this...

Have been staying here two to four times a year forever. Its the best place in Boardman. Ask for a river side room, the views are great. The lobby is a great place to take a rest in front of the fireplave and enjoy a drink. You wont be disappointed.

We enjoyed our weekend here while attending my husband's class reunion. We especially enjoyed the river view from our room! Our room was large, well equipped and the food was excellent. It was a terrific weekend and we are looking forward to returning next year!

We stopped here on a bicycle trip. The location and setting is really special. The rooms were great as well. Spacious and well maintained. We had a difficult time before arrival with communications and some mistakes were made, but did not take away from the experience.

We stayed here recently because we did not want to repeat the same motels on the freeway. This place is just a bit off I-5. What a wonderful little gem, right on the river! The motel is somewhat upscale, with nice, tasteful furnishings and supplies but not cold and trendy, or snooty like some places which try for upscale. The... More

We only stayed one night. Would love to stay longer, but not enough time in our schedule. Excellent room, clean and everything worked. Bed was very comfortable. Room was on the first floor, but no noise from above. A great place to enjoy walking along the river and watching the boat traffic. The restaurant had a good menu, tasty food,... More

My husband and I stayed here and loved it a lot. Very friendly staff. Great location on the river. Beautiful sunset. We enjoyed dinner on the patio. Hot tub outside under the stars was nice. The single pitfall was that I asked if there was a signature dish and was told that many people order the fish and chips. It... More

Great place - I arrived late at night - the king room is huge and very nice. Clean and wonderful furnishings. In the morning light - I was amazed at the beauty of the hotel grounds and the riverfront. I hope to go back and spend more time there.

Wonderful hotel located right on the Columbia River. Great rooms, clean and tidy, complete with a small refrigerator and a Kuerig Coffee Maker. There is a restaurant on site, ate breakfast there two times and it was good. The front desk staff were very welcoming. We will be returning again, without a doubt. Some of the other guests did not... More

Spotless, large, second floor riverview room included wet bar with microwave and mini fridge to use. Hotel restaurant food was average but good. Staff were all very friendly. Only spent the night but would be very comfortable for a longer stay. A great walking trail along the river. Just know that there's not much else around, so the destination is... More
