Hood River was the first night destination on our motorcycle trip to Tahoe with a group of fellow riders. I'm so happy that I booked at the Vagabond Lodge. It is not in town but had everything we needed and town was a short drive away. The Vagabond is larger than I expected and the rooms are in a few different buildings. It is an older Inn but very well tended. The front of the property is right next to the freeway but the building we were in was set back far enough that freeway noise was not an issue.
We chose 2 queen balcony room. It was spacious and clean and had nice touches like wine glasses and a cork screw in addition to great views of the beautiful Columbia river. There were several wind surfers on the river and it was fun to watch them. We also enjoyed spotting the many pretty semi wild ( but well fed by the management) cats that have taken up residence in the woods around the Inn. There were a lot of stairs to get to the view rooms in this building but it was doable. If you have issues with stairs you may want to ask about the rooms in other buildings.There are many shady and green areas on the property, a few picnic tables and a playground for the kiddos.
I always try to book lodging where we can walk to dine and there were several choices for mid priced food very near this inn as well as a wine bar nearly in the parking lot. If you want a fancy meal the Columbia Gorge Hotel is right next door.
It was a good stay and when we come back to Hood River I will book here again!
