The rooms are cozy, the view is beautiful and the price is right. It's the perfect spot to stay after a day on the mountain or in the water. Right off 84 makes it super convenient. Do yourself a favor and stay here!

You can't beat the location and price. Loved room 22, view was amazing, clean, tasteful, well appointed. The only problem was the consistent lack of hot water...two cold showers. What?? The front desk staff was friendly and helpful and the restaurant next door was lovely, try the homemade pot pie.

Thanks for your review, sorry to hear that the water wasn't where it should be. Because of the Anti-Scald law (Uniform Plumbing Code, 1994) we can only have water up to 120 degrees F, but some people have their home systems a bit warmer. Even so, we're on the schedule to replace our current water heating system with a tankless...

This is a wonderful place that feels truly loved by the family running it. It isn't fancy by any means but it is incredibly comfortable, clean, and has gorgeous views. Small things make a difference when staying away from home and this family has clearly thought of these things -- solid construction, comfy duvets and bed linens, comfortable mattresses, make-up...

Thanks much for your review! Those makeup towels were an idea one of our housekeepers had, she's glad you like them. We have more improvements in the works, and some more planned as we save the money to make it happen. Thanks again!

We were given the wrong keys to our room. Checked in early in the day and left before going to my room. Tried to get into my room at 1:30 AM., But the key I was given did not fit the door of the room number they told me was my room. I looked at the number on the key...

Thanks for your feedback. We (at the hotel) had a very direct conversation about this, as it's unacceptable for us too. We've addressed a couple of things so that shouldn't happen again. We're also going to replace the water system in that building, as it shouldn't be running out of hot water. Hopefully we can earn your trust back in...

Pleasantly surprised!! The grounds are nice and the views of the Columbia River Gorge are beautiful. We walked on the trails around the property to take some stunning photographs. We stayed in the newer building and it was very nice and clean. I would have loved to stay in the older building with river views but they were all booked....

Thanks much for your review! When you have an idea on when you would like to visit us again, please do give us a call and we can reserve one of the river view rooms for you! With any luck, maybe the eagles will fly by while you are out on the balcony. Thanks again!

I am a clean freak, and the Westcliff is clean, clean, clean. The housekeeping staff is to be commended. The room was nicely appointed and the little extra touches made us feel pampered. We have stayed here twice before and will always make it our stop when we're at Hood River. The rooms/suites overlooking the river have a fantastic view....

Thanks much for your review! Thanks for your kind words about the cleaning work we do. My grandmother was given the nickname of "Ms Clean" when she would teach everyone what our standards are; glad to hear we can keep it up! Thanks again.

Welcoming staff, cozy rooms at the lodge with scenic view of the Columbia River. The lodge 1-exit from city center makes the restaurants and bars of Hood River easily accessible as well as providing a quiet clean place to come back home too. Will stay again

When i first pulled up to his place, was disapointed my company couldnt find a more updated hotel. But once i got to my room, was impressed to see that though the outside isn't updated because the place must of been originally built in the 70s the inside was updated. Attached photos The grounds is well kept. Houskeeping is friendly....
