I just want to say thank you!! I live in Hood River about 45 minutes east of Troutdale and was unable to drive home due to an ice storm. I was prepared to pay the full $100 that was posted online, but when I woke up there was a receipt under my door letting me know that because I stayed...

Thank Molly M

So glad we were able to help, Molly, and that you had a comfortable stay with us when it was needed. We do reduce the rate for those stranded by weather, however that rate is a 20% discount, so you got a somewhat better rate than generally available (Merry Christmas!). It looks like someone snagged an internal friends and family...

Nice, mid class inn. Location is good for visiting the gorge. I especially liked that it's located next to the Troutdale airport. (I like watching airplanes). It's also next to a Dairy Queen. (I really like Dairy Queen). Our King room was clean, spacious, & comfortable. Slept quite well there. Staff is friendly & helpful. Spent 3 nights there. Easy...

I like watching the small airplanes, too... do remind us the next time you're coming this way and we'll make sure to get you on the west side so you aren't on the east with nothing to watch but a tree full of birds : ). I am most glad you had a comfortable stay with us and we did...

I am sorry that you lost your equipment, and that we lost you - it hurts you and it hurts us and it is nothing we would wish all around. We are always glad to do anything we can to help our local law enforcement keep the area safe. Best, Loree

This is a newer hotel in Troutdale and conveniently located off I-84. Management and staff were very friendly, professional,and efficient. The rooms were kept very clean thanks to the Housekeeping staff which were excellent. I've already booked multiple units in this hotel for an upcoming family reunion and will definitely continue to stay here in the future.

We just stayed here with friends. We came down for the Brandi Carlile concert. There was a round trip shuttle to the venue for $10 per person which was well worth it! The beds were super comfy after a long day of travel and the concert.

We love concert days : ) - McMenamin's does a beautiful job with the concert booking and venue, and Edgefield is simply a jewel in the crown here in Troutdale. Hope you had some time to explore the property and grounds a bit. Mt. Hood Cab runs a shuttle loop for the concerts, which is a great benefit to our...

Stayed here for one night over Labor Day weekend. We needed a pet friendly room close to the airport. Check in was a breeze, and he even found me a better rate than I was booked under. Room was very clean, no carpet. Bathroom is tiny, but more than adequate, and clean. The bed was the most comfortable place I'd...

The Portland airport was sold out and I was less than excited when my husband booked this hotel. I was SO wrong! It is probably the nicest Comfort Inn I've ever seen. Just renovated, sparklingly clean - the rooms even have wooden floors and the shower curtain was squeaky clean and pure white as was the lovely tub surround. Beds...

We love it when you're wrong in the right way : ). A lot of our returning guests originally found us when the PDX hotels were full, and, while our friends at the airport properties do a great job, we're delighted when we make that extra twelve miles well worth your effort.

Very nice staff, clean. Comfortable. Breakfast in morning, soup and cookies at 5. BUT.. If you want quiet, not going to get. It's next to a small airport which must do helicopter training. They wake us up at 7- 7:30 in the morning. Helicopters are idling, flying, hovering. We wake up to it and come back from a long day...

Loree_Harrell, General Manager at Comfort Inn Columbia Gorge Gateway, responded to this review

I am very sorry that the airport disturbed you. Our guests are about evenly split between those who want to watch the small planes and helicopter school, and those who want nothing to do with it. Being in the latter category, simply request an east side (even numbered) room, and your room will be quiet with nothing out your window...

Stayed just one night while in the area for business. Making reservations was easy and a good idea since my stay was during the busy summer vacation season.

I am delighted that your stay was just right, and, Yes, please!, reserve as soon as you know you're coming this way in high season (which runs from mid-May until late in October).
