This motel appears to date back to the1970s, perhaps before the interstate was finished. It is old, dark, and has very dated bathrooms. For example, no vanity to hold razors, cosmetics, etc. Also, no desk for working. On the positive, there is an area out back to stroll and view the Columbia River. Clean & quiet. But I would look...

Thanks for your review; my grandparents opened our first (Classic) building back in '54, which is the building you were in. We've added on since then, our newest building opening in 2014. Most of our rooms do have desks and larger vanities, only a few of our Classic and Partial View rooms don't have the space. If you do decide...

We stayed in one of the Garden Suites, which is basically like a cabin-style setting with kitchen and 2 Queen beds. The rooms were spotless, even the corners. The hot tub was very much enjoyed by the kids. There is a Char Burger close by, useful for that first night when you don't want to go into town to eat....

Thanks, glad the kids enjoyed the Jacuzzi tub! Yep, there are 3 restaurants next door to choose from: the Charburger, White Buffalo, and Simon's Cliffhouse. Each one has its own vibe and food style. We'll continue updating our buildings as well, our most recent one was built in 2014. Thanks again!

I arrived after dark. The room was clean and comfortable. The curtains were open, but since it was dark and I didn't know what lay beyond I pulled them closed. I was pleasantly surprised when I open them onto the breathtaking view of the Columbia River Gorge in the morning. I spent some time wandering the grounds and taking in...

The lodge compound is situated on the South bank of the Columbia River Gorge. A couple of the buildings face directly the river. The view from the rooms overlooking the water is absolutely gorgeous (:-P )!. Stayed in a clean, functional, refurbished, basic room. Friendly and efficient service at check-in and check-out.

We have stayed at the Westcliff--formerly Vagabond--Lodge three times before this latest visit. All visits, including this one have been enjoyable--nice large, clean room, pleasant grounds. In each case we stayed in Room 37, which is a nice, spacious simple room with a river view but no balcony or other exceptional amenities. It suits us very nicely. There were to...

Thanks for your feedback, we have talked with everyone who you had talked with to make sure any lapse in our communication doesn't happen. Our high season does indeed run until mid/late October, depending each year on when Harvest Fest happens. Then we have our fall, winter, and spring seasons. What you are seeing at the end of December is...

Stayed in a suite so that we had a meeting place with kids in other rooms. Turned out perfect with the constant rain to have a place where the toddlers could play, the whole family could hang out, have snacks, and beautiful grounds to walk and play on as well.

An older motel on beautiful wooded grounds overlooking the Columbia. Our room was noted as "limited view" but the view was fantastic! The room was small but clean and comfortable and relatively recently redecorated. The bathroom was small with a small shower and the sink and counter top were awkwardly placed by the shower entrance but otherwise fine. The grounds...

Thanks for your review, glad you liked the view from our Partial View building! Yes, that building does have some of the features that were popular at the time it was built (early 60's), and we do have plans to remodel and fix a couple of those angles. Thanks again!

This is an older property but has been well maintained. And one really nice thing about older motels is the size of the rooms... ours was very roomy and had two big picture windows overlooking the Columbia River. Just gorgeous!

I decided to book our stay at this hotel because of the high reviews on this website. While I found the office staff to be very friendly and helpful with things like restaurant recommendations, the room itself and housekeeping were average at best.

“We like ADA-accessible rooms because the shower has a seat. This hotel is right off I-84 so rooms closer to the river might be quieter.”
