Experience was very welcoming. Our room was modernized, clean and spacious. Bathroom was also spacious with double headed showers, which we enjoyed. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Wish to stay again soon.

Thanks for your review! Please do give us a call next time you'll be visiting Hood River and we'll reserve one of those Courtyard rooms on the second flood again, or a Riverview if you would like! Thanks again

We've been taking regular trips to Hood River for about a year and usually stay next door at the Gorge Hotel. But we decided to take a chance on this one because of the price. WOW!!! I cannot believe it took us this long to stay here. We didn't have a river view, I believe we stayed in room 72?...

Thanks much for your review! Yes, you were in our newest building, opened in May of 2014. We're continuing to make improvements throughout the property as well, so there will be something new to check out from time to time. Thanks again, hope to see you again on your regular trips to visit Hood River!

This place was great. The experience was amazing. The front desk staff were fast, really friendly and gave great recommendations. We stayed in room 27 with a partial river view. The entire room was really clean, the bed was really comfy and clean. Its obvious they put alot of effort into the rooms. With the added touches of the wine...

Thanks for your review! We've actually been talking about breakfast with our local restaurants, including the wine bar and bistro on our property. The hard part is that there are so many great restaurants here to try that we don't want to limit people to one thing. We'll keep working on that, as well as our remodel plans. Thanks again!

We booked a night at the Westcliff (or the Vagabond, as some of the materials in our room identified it as) because of a booking snafu at a much pricier place about 25 yards down the road. Their loss, our gain, as we had a great experience at the Westcliff. There is a breathtaking view just a short walk from...

Thanks for your review! Yes, we changed the name not too long ago, to better reflect where we are and our history (my grandmother named the street and neighborhood Westcliff). We should have the last of our printed materials back shortly, so everything will be updated and match. Thanks again!

My husband and I were on a road trip and pulled in to this hotel after midnight. the Westcliff Lodge had a pet friendly room available for us at a really great price. It was a cute, well equipped room with a view of the river. We had a great nights sleep in one of the most comfortable hotel beds...

Lovely place to spend a nice weekend relaxing, in touch with the environment in a nice quaint little town. I will definitely come back during the hotter weather to enjoy that lovely river and do some hiking!

We came here for a 2-day mid-week getaway in the middle of an unusual (read LONG!) winter. Booked online and got a great rate. In warmer weather, I imagine this place would be packed as it is right on the river. The room (2 queen beds) feels new and was very clean, modern and comfortable. Check-in was very welcoming, even...

Thanks for your review, yes it was a long winter! Most of the snow has melted off, but it was certainly fun while it was here. Hood River's a great place to be to enjoy a "winter wonderland" kind of getaway when we have winters like these. Pine Street is a great spot, and if you like pizza bring a...

Found this place online, great choice! Paid extra for the view and was worth it. The room was large and very comfy, the bed was comfortable, tables showed sings of love (wear) but we thought it made it homey. Didn't get a chance to explore the grounds as it was snowing heavily, but think they are probably very nice. Love...

Thanks for your support! Yes, we're into our 3rd generation of our small family business, and look forward to making it even better. It certainly has been a snowy winter; if you visit in late April the blossoms on the cherry trees should be blooming and all the wildflowers will be coming back out after their winter away. Thanks again!
