We stumbled upon Balch Hotel on a weekend getaway! Very nice place to stay and enjoyed the fantastic dinner and breakfast! Our room was on the 3rd floor, a beautiful view of Mt. Hood. The overall stay was top notch!

Yes, we have good cell coverage for Verizon. Some of the smaller carriers do not reach out here. There is no data, however. We have free wifi throughout the building so when you get here you'll have all you need.
