This hotel is not far from the freeway, and appears to be in the midst of an industrial zone, but once you get there is in fact right on the Columbia river with a few nice walks and lovely views. Rooms are large and comfortable and the restaurant is very good with a good gf menu.

The rooms were clean and adequate, the desk clerk was very friendly, helpful, and made us feel at home. The best part was probably the Grill we ate at while there. My husband ordered fish and chips and I ordered the roasted chicken. The waitress Jessica was so full of gusto and all around delight. The food was excellent. View...

We stopped on our way home. Thought it looked great but were very disappointed. Food wasn't great, service was ok but we did see both servers head outdoors to take pictures on their cells while people were waiting to be seated. Prices are way too high for what is offered. Basically we wouldn't come back even if we lived local.

Thank you for taking the time and telling us about your experience in the River Grill. I am sorry to hear that what you tasted and saw were not up to the par we normally hold for the restaurant. It sounds like our service and food fell flat when you visited, and I am in the process of finding out...

I drove from Portland just to stay there for 2 nights on the weekend. The lodge was great .The room is clean and excellence in a quiet environment. I also recommend to go check out Sage Center near by the hotel where shows the history of Boardman.

Nice views and walking paths around the hotel and river. The rooms, food, and drinks are all overpriced for what you get, but there really isn't anywhere else to stay or eat nearby. The sunsets here are stunning.

We have stayed here numerous times and have always enjoyed the friendliness of the staff and nice, clean, large rooms. During our last stay over Christmas, the heater/AC had problems which we reported to the staff but never received any feedback as to whether or not the unit had been repaired. Other than that, we have enjoyed staying here. The...

I've stayed at the River Lodge multiple times - always on business trips when I see clients in the Boardman area. The front desk is always friendly, the rooms and everything about the place is always clean. When you stay, you have a few options: Upstairs or downstairs, and river view or parking lot view. If all that's available is...

Thank you also for your patience when our ice machines needed maintenance, and I appreciate the feedback on the air conditioners. That is an issue we...

This is definitely a pretty hotel in a pretty location ... sitting in the restaurant at breakfast watching the COLD river flow by with a hot cup of tea just felt right. Dinner was good, but needs to be one notch better given the expense. Breakfast was fine - but then again it's easy to cut some berries on top...

We left Coeur D Alene Idaho, started our 3000 mile trip. Stopped here for lunch. Very quiet, clean and the food was good. The view was amazing. Just was the perfect place for that day and that time. I had good company too.
