An unexpectedly wonderful find in Boardman. We were greeted with big smile and smooth checkin. Laurie was very nice and professional. She reminded us of "happy hour." The hotel has a log cabin feel with some nooks to find some quiet time. Our room was a bit dated but very clean and inviting. An unusual fog blocked our view of...

Very nice and the staff was terrific. Recently updated, fresh and very clean. Rooms are larger than most hotels. We had a fridge, microwave, coffee machine extra sink and Direct TV. Our room had a king size bed plus a couch, desk, and small table. Restaurant was great too. Beautiful view of the Columbia river. Well worth the extra drive...

I stayed here a few nights when a snow storm hit the area. The hotel was very clean. The rooms were large. In fact, I was very impressed with size of the rooms. The downside was the walls were thin. For considering themselves as upscale as they do, this was surprising to me. You could hear every door slam in...

Great place to stay and fairly priced. Riverside room nicely appointed. We were able to stay here twice without reservations but lost out once. Highly recommend calling ahead. The dining area is nice but lacks atmosphere. Menu and preparation could both be improved. This is the place to stay in Boardman but don't make the drive if all you want...

Great surprise to find this lovely hotel on the Columbia River. Beautiful and clean. Had a wonderful huge room facing the river. The grounds are beautiful. Restaurant was delightful. Nice menu and good service. Huge servings.... ordered the Prim Rib, it was perfectly cooked and almost didn't fit the dinner plate. Mushroom soup was fresh and delicious. Would recommend this...

Have been staying here two to four times a year forever. Its the best place in Boardman. Ask for a river side room, the views are great. The lobby is a great place to take a rest in front of the fireplave and enjoy a drink. You wont be disappointed.

We enjoyed our weekend here while attending my husband's class reunion. We especially enjoyed the river view from our room! Our room was large, well equipped and the food was excellent. It was a terrific weekend and we are looking forward to returning next year!

We stopped here on a bicycle trip. The location and setting is really special. The rooms were great as well. Spacious and well maintained. We had a difficult time before arrival with communications and some mistakes were made, but did not take away from the experience.

We stayed here recently because we did not want to repeat the same motels on the freeway. This place is just a bit off I-5. What a wonderful little gem, right on the river! The motel is somewhat upscale, with nice, tasteful furnishings and supplies but not cold and trendy, or snooty like some places which try for upscale. The...

We only stayed one night. Would love to stay longer, but not enough time in our schedule. Excellent room, clean and everything worked. Bed was very comfortable. Room was on the first floor, but no noise from above. A great place to enjoy walking along the river and watching the boat traffic. The restaurant had a good menu, tasty food,...
