Historical Traveller Reviews of Best Western Hood River Inn Hotel

Great Veiws

from Moonhole
The hotel is right on the Columbia river and has great veiws all around. Rooms was clean and comfortable with a deck overlooking the river. Staff did very well with their jobs. The bridge over the river is a little noisy but is worth it for the view.

Scenic view, retro decor

from Louavull
We stopped in on our way from the Oregon wine country to the Washington wine country. The room was very comfortable, and had the feel of an inn from times gone by. The room was large and the bed and furniture were all very comfortable. But the knotty pine gave it a kind of rustic feel.
Our window was large and looked out onto the river, which was very scenic and bustling with activity - lots of wind surfers and kite surfers. There was a walkway behind the hotel that stretched for about a quarter mile along the river, and was a great place to take a brisk walk.
The attached restaurant had a nice bar where we waited for our table. The hostess told us if we waited about twenty minutes until a new shift started, she could be sure to give us a seat with a view of the river. The food was above average, and the wine list included many fine Oregon wines at fair prices.
We hope we get to return sometime.

Okay stay at the Best Western

from NLFlower
We stayed here one night. It is a standard older style property, built in the late 60's I would guess. The location is the best thing about it -- right on the river. Some rooms have a patio or balcony that faces the Columbia River. We saw several couples having coffee out there in the morning. Our room was clean and comfortable, but nothing to get excited about. The hotel shares a parking lot with Starbuck's and McDonald's, so you have several breakfast choices nearby. Access to the highway is also close by. Front desk staff was efficient, but did not go out of their way to be friendly. All in all, it is an adequate place to stay, with the views of the river being the highlight.

Beautiful location

from tikimonkey
We stayed here for one night before our "Fruit Loop" adventure. We had a room with a view of the columbia river. A sliding glass door opened up to a small patio with a couple of chairs, a green lawn and this amazing view of the river and this wonderful green bridge. Our room had two double beds and the bathtub had jacuzzis jets even though we had booked a standard room. We were given a coupon for 1/2 off of breakfast at the cafe which is yummy. Fantastic berry pancakes. The fault I have to give the hotel is in the housekeeping. Under one bed we found a pair of tennis shoes and the other bed had chewed up sunflower seeds and a bottle of tequilla. Ewwww. So glad I didn't see those before I went to sleep because I would have been very uncomfortable. If they just stepped up the level of housekeeping, there would be little to fault. Hopefully ours, was an isolated experience.

Great view, good staff

from shutterbug2
We recently spent 2 nights at the Best Western Hood River Inn & were pleasantly surprised by the friendliness & attentiveness of the staff. Everyone was friendly & helpful, from helping us find our way around (there is a walking path into downtown Hood River that passes the marina
& a museum, but it's a bit of a walk) to supplying lots of towels for the pool. We've stayed at much more pricey & "upscale" hotels that did not match this level of service. Maybe it's the vibe of Hood River in general, but I can highly recommend it. The view from our groundfloor room was great & the Columbia River provided entertainment with barges & wind surfers. There's a small beach at the inn, but it seemed mostly for wind surfing beginners. The pool was rather cool, but the weather was not warm (70 degrees F during the day). The hot tub was nice & seemed clean & well maintained. Meals were good in the dining room, but if you want to explore other options, the yellow pages has menus for many local place to eat.
We would certainly stay here again!

Great location, helpful staff

from ilcoor
After reading the previous review about keeping my socks on, I didn't really want to stay here. However, our last-minute travel plans didn't leave many options. We were in town to see Thomas the Tank Engine (those with small children will get this). When we checked in our rooms were in the older section of the hotel -- which was a little dingy looking from the outside. The helpful woman at the desk offered to switch us but said that people with children often want to stay closer to the pool (where this building is). We were greatly relieved to find the rooms pleasant and clean and the view of the river lovely. The proximity to the pool was ideal and so we didn't switch our rooms.

The only negative I can come up with is that as my friend and I sat outside our rooms in the evening to enjoy the view, the hum of the air conditioners was quite distracting. The staff was great--three hours after we checked out, I realized that I had left my expensive foam pillow behind--and when I called, it was still there!

Keep your socks on!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Hood River Inn in Hood River Oregon. I must say that for the money we spent - 116.00 during the week and 136.00 on the weekend - I was less than impressed. We had a river view room and the view was great - but I tried not to be in the room any more than I needed to be. The carpets were very filthy, the small refridgerator in the room had an awful smell of something smoked...smoked fish maybe? Lets just say that the banana bread I put in the fridge also absorbed the smell and so I had smoked banana bread - if one were bored you could watch the ants in the room - even in the bathtub - yes, while taking a bath, the ants would crawl around the tub by the faucets. Not to gross anyone out - but the first time I used the toilet - as I was about to use the toilet paper, my hand went totally in the toilet water - I believe this was due to the water being unusually high in the toilet and the toilet seat being one of those cheap thin plastic ones. This was so disgusting that I would usually opt to use the bathroom at the Starbucks in the morning. The water depth didn't change the entire stay - so it wasnt just a one time thing. When we were out and about for the day exploring I would try to find enough to do to keep me busy so I wouldn't have to go back until it was time to sleep and then I was able to tolerate it. We were in room 249 - June 13th - June 18th - just incase you decide to stay there - at least if you don't stay in that room you won't have to smell the disgusting fridge - keep your socks on!

Great location

from valvoline
Stayed in room #115 bottom floor nice balcony-clean with a beautiful view. Ordered room service salad. Tasty and quickly arrived. Free internet access. Only drawback was you could here the plumbing from next room. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Great location

from ElizabethMartin
We stayed at the Best Western Hood River Inn for three nights beginning March 31, 2006. We stayed in room 523 and the river view was great. Above the sliding glass doors there was another window as large as the sliding glass doors and when we opened the curtains, it felt like we could see the whole sky. Wonderful. We ate at the restaurant in the hotel and the food was average. There are trains that run up and down on the other side of the river, but the only thing we heard was the whistle of the train. You can hear a little of the bridge deck noise, but there was not much bridge traffic at night. The plumbing was noisy in the room however. We could clearly hear each bath or shower start up and the shower in this room has a high pitched whistle that remains constant for the length of your shower. All in all, nice room. I would stay here again. Try Brian's Pourhouse in town for dinner. Yummy.

Well treated for conventions 2 weeks in a row

from homerz
I was here for two separate business trips two weeks back to back and had great service both weeks. The front desk staff were always very helpful, as were the restuarant staff. The lounge staff were very busy and hurried with customers,...perhaps ramping up with a few extra staff would improve service a bit, but it was admittedly very busy with a convention taking up almost the entire hotel and filling the lounge to capacity every night.
The views are nice of the river and the campus is very clean, with great areas to go walking down along the waterfront and to the marina next door. The restaurant has a stunning riverfront view from every table.
The convention meeting rooms were clean, easy to get to, and the hotel staff took great pains to keep us happy with timely refills on iced water, coffee, tea, etc. For some reason, the soap dispenser in the Gorge room bathrooms were not built in, so a bottle of soft soap sits on the counter. It gets really messy with that setup. I'm not sure why built in soap dispensers were overlooked.
I stayed in the west wing, top floor and both rooms, both weeks were always clean, and surprsingly quiet. I never had problems sleeping due to thin walls, which is a usual problem I have. Thank goodness that they have extra pillows that are really flat! For once, the showerhead in a hotel room has enough water pressure to get the shampoo out of your hair! AND the hair dryer worked well. It's amazing the little things you appreciate when you travel a LOT. The fridge did freeze my pop, but I turned it down the 2nd night and had no more issues.
The meals provided for the two conventions, while needing to stay under a government per diem rate, were always very good. We even got to have Tom Grant come out and play a night in the downstairs lounge for us.
The only complaint I can think of is that if only given an hour for lunch, you'd have a 40 minute wait from time of order and I'm not sure why. I tried lunch this way the first day, then bagged the idea for the rest of each week. We usually ran into town for lunch thereafter, as it was a bit cheaper anyway. Pietro's Pizza is fast and has a great salad bar.
I love the morning paper delivered to my door, the nearby Starbucks with a very friendly staff and free high speed wireless throughout the campus!
I would stay here again for business or pleasure.

Top Local Tips for Mt. Hood Meadows

Windsurfer's & Boardsurfer's Dream! Hood River's long been known as a mecca for wind & board surfers. The Columbia Gorge is no slouch compared to the views of European (Switzerland, Germany, etc) river towns with majestic slopes. The Columbia river & gorge itself looks like a ready set for a painter or photographer to simply capture. Hood River has oodles of character with a whole range of age brackets enjoying the town. A sportspersons destination for hiking, fishing, etc. If you're lucky, Mt. Hood itself will peek out of the clouds. Careful about the time of year: it gets socked in a lot, and with the rain/snow: can be stuck indoors if you don't check first. Come quick & play before Google, Yahoo! and the big sportwear labels plant a headquarters or "campus" here!

outdoors and more water sports, hiking, biking and more, but plenty for the less active person too. Spectacular scenery, fun shopping and dining,

Great Restaurants Mesquitery, Dixies, Bette's, 6th Street
