Marietta, Georgia
Reviewed 18 October 2015

We had a room with a balcony and a great river view. The Lodge property is beautiful but the rooms and building need some upgrading (carpets and bathrooms), not a lot to be done in order to upgrade my rating from very god to excellent. The rooms were spacious and clean

Old hotel, very basic room, truly one the cleanest rooms we have ever stayed in! Delightful staff, well maintained grounds. Fantastic White Buffalo restaurant in the parking lot. Partial view room #19 had straight on view of the river and gorgeous huge walnut trees.

Thanks for your review! Yes, we have a number of buildings/rooms to choose from; we built and opened our newest one a little over a year ago. Glad you enjoyed your visit with us, we'll continue to make improvements throughout the grounds. Thanks again!

Excellent remodeled rooms with new comfortable beds and superb view of the Columbia River minutes from downtown Hood River. Beautiful grounds with trees and flowers. The outside of the buildings need paint but inside the rooms are great. The desk and maid staff were very friendly and helpful.

We really enjoyed our two night stay at the Vagabond. We had a third story river view room. Even though it wasn't a suite, the room was still very spacious. The bed was on the soft side and very comfortable. There was a mini-refrigerator and those are always handy to have. Best of all was the view ... just an...

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed your visit with us! You are right, we don't go for the over-the-top lux because we philosophically believe that all our guests should be able to enjoy time with us without breaking the bank. It's one of those things that my grandparents believed when they started the hotel, having grown up during the...

Very good handicaped rooms. Very spacious and new rooms. It was the best handicaped room I tested on my 21 day journey to the US. The price is oky. You have a roll in shower and a very spacious bath room.

Thanks much for your review, glad you enjoyed our ADA rooms in our Courtyard building! They all have roll-in showers (with the nice large showerheads) and we designed the rooms to have plenty of room. Thanks again!

This is a very comfortable and well kept hotel. Parts of it are older than others but all appear to be well maintained. The staff is friendly and the views of the gorge cannot be beat. Some rooms literally are as close as one can get to the edge. This is not a new or fancy place but a clean...

We have stayed there a couple of times now, from the highway it looks like a simple low end roadside motel, but they have done major renovations and have some very nice, large, and fairly new units closer to the river. So ask for the newer units. Great views of the columbia river, nice grilling and picnic area along the...

Thanks for your review! Yes, our building closest to the road is our original, opened by my grandparents in '54. Glad you enjoyed our newer additions, and we'll keep on making improvements throughout our little property to keep it a special spot for everyone to enjoy. Thanks again!

So beautifully done. We stayed at the Eagle Site glamping tent and it was fantastic. With views of the river through the trees from the comfy double bed, the tent is like a compact 4 star hotel room in the middle of the woods. More spacious than I had imagined, me, my girlfriend and our dog moved around easily and...

Thanks much, glad you enjoyed glamping with us! It's definitely a unique experience, with nothing else like it around. Glad the sunset cooperated nicely for you, it's a great way to wind down from the day. Thanks again!

Hotel staff are excellent and helpful. The grounds are gorgeous. Housekeeping is highly professional. We stayed in suite 34. The room, and it appeared other rooms viewable from the walkway as well, have not received upgrades or adequate maintenence. In suite 34, our room, the carpet was soiled and stained; woodwork scratched. Drapes on side windows did not operate. The...

Thanks for your review and feedback! We are planning on replacing the carpet throughout that building this winter, and will check/fix everything else mentioned. We would like an opportunity to re-earn your trust, especially after your help in bringing these things to our immediate attention. Thanks again.

Reviewed 12 September 2015

I was expecting a very basic room-wrong! It's modern, spacious, with a big balcony overlooking a wooded area (#76). The property is close to the interstate, so there is road noise with the windows/doors open. No breakfast-places nearby but not to walk to. I'm in a new bldg. that does not allow pets, so other rooms may differ-I saw rooms...
