This was a real gem with an incredible view and beautiful area! The staff was warm and friendly. My room was clean and comfortable. I greatly enjoyed my stay with family and a friend, and we all especially enjoyed the picnic benches in the back with the wonderful river view. Our group would be very happy to return to this...

We stayed in a family room with two queen size beds. One was in the corner of a very large room and the other queen was in a separate room. There was one bathroom with the shower and toilet in one room with a door that was separate from a sink. The balcony ran the length of the large room...

I went here expecting a place feeling old and out dated. It was beautiful!!. Yes it had that old fashion feel, but it was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We stayed for four night and I wish we could have stayed longer. We had a beautiful view of the Columbia River Gorge. We stayed...

This is an update to a review posted previously: We stayed here for just one night, having booked a room with a view 3-4 weeks earlier. Our ground floor room was spacious and comfortable for three persons. We enjoyed sitting on the deck outside the room, facing the scenic Cascade River. The property is nicely maintained and landscaped with lawn...

Thanks again for your review! We did just make some more improvements to the viewpoint, and more picnic tables for the grounds will be delivered in the next few days. Glad you had a nice time with us, thanks again

Reviewed 28 July 2016

Great views from almost anywhere. The Colombia River is mesmerizing from this property. The scenery around the property make it ideal for a wedding, or just enjoying a glass of wine from one of many ideal locations on the property. There is a small wine store as you approach the entrance. The accommodations were easy to make; very friendly staff,...

Thanks for your review! Yes, the White Buffalo does have the best wine selection around, plus they also make from-scratch entrees guests can take to picnic while enjoying the view. Thanks again!

Reviewed 27 July 2016

From the street this lodge does not have much appeal, but once inside the room you will find a nice atmosphere and very clean room for your stay. I see that it has been renamed to Westcliff Lodge. Staff was friendly. Grounds were well cared for. Room cleaning service was beyond expectations. Also, this is right next to the freeway,...

Thanks for your review, and yes we did just yesterday change the name to Westcliff in keeping with our neighborhood and remembering/honoring my grandmother who started the hotel with that original building seen from the road (she named this area and street Westcliff). We'll keep making improvements as well throughout! Thanks again

We had a king river view room with balcony on the third floor. The room was very clean, and it was nicely set up with a table that was designed high enough to look over the balcony rail from inside the room, thereby giving us an excellent view of the Columbia. The bed was very comfortable. It is a nicely...

The Vagabond was recommended to me by a friend and my husband and I decided to try in for our anniversary this year. We loved our unit which was up a small rise and had a flight of stairs to the front door. It had a balcony with a wonderful view of the Columbia. The room felt very clean and...

We discovered Vagabond Lodge (renamed about one week ago to Westcliff Lodge) thanks to the contributors on the Oregon forum of TripAdvisor. Thank you! It was a pleasant and perfect place to stay after an active day in the Columbia River Gorge area. We chose a pet-free room without a view of the river and found it to be spacious,...

Thanks much for your review! We ordered some more picnic tables today and should have them assembled and ready in a week or two, so there will be more spots to enjoy a nice brunch or watch the windsurfers on the river. Thanks again!

Reviewed 24 July 2016

The Vagabond Lodge is a pleasant surprise along the Columbia River. At first glance it looks like a 1950s era travel lodge which it originally was but it's been updated nicely and the grounds are gorgeous. You can tell the "backyard" is used for a lot of weddings with it's spectacular view and beautifully maintained flower beds. The lodge is...

Thanks for your review! Yes, some of our showers are different sizes, depending on which building it is. For example, our newest (Courtyard) building has a larger shower size with both 4" standard and 8" rainfall shower heads. We will continue to make more renovations as well; thanks again!
