Despite the proximity to the interstate and an airfield the hotel was surprisingly quiet.

Shares the site with a Dairy Queen if you need your Blizzard fix.

Small dining area struggled with the numbers in our coach party but there was decent spread.

We have good walls, huh? :) I have always been slightly astonished myself at how little noise gets through from outside into the rooms - thank you for mentioning it.

I'm glad that you enjoyed breakfast, and sorry that it got crowded with your group all on the same schedule. We are looking at options for reworking the area to include some dining bars to increase seating capacity, as there isn't any opportunity to expand the footprint with the dike right behind us. Regrettably a common problem with hotels that were designed at time when "breakfast" meant a pot of coffee and a donut :).

We appreciate you staying with us and making the time to review, and I hope your group had a very good trip indeed.

All the best,
Loree

We spent two nights here. Rooms were clean and roomy, shower was good. The staff was helpful and friendly. No pool, but I used their outside hot tub. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of choices. For budget travelling this hotel worked out very well for us. Also, easy access to the interstate, local shopping and restaurants.

Thank you for staying with us and making the time to let us know you had a good experience, Brien! I'm very glad we made you welcome, and that you were able to take good advantage of the spa and breakfast.

And, yes, our showers are indeed good - I wish I could import one to my home :).

We'll see you next time you're this direction!

All the best,

Came to the area to complete the Bridge of the Gods Half Marathon in Cascade Locks. No hotels were available in Cascade Locks. This hotel was only 30 minutes from the start line via I-84 so great alternative. Also, checkout was at 1:00 pm so could easily complete the half marathon, get back to hotel to shower before leaving for Portland airport.
Very clean. Had no issues with noise as mentioned in other postings. Breakfast was wide variety and hostess kept everything clean and supplied. Enjoyed the nightly cookies and soup. Had never had that combination offered before, however. Very nice touch!!!!
Would definitely stay here again!!!

I am very glad that you found us for the Bridge Of The Gods run, Seri! That has to be one of the sweetest runs in the country, and I am very glad that our 1:00 checkout time let you get back for a shower before you had to be back to PDX for your flight :).

I am happy that the soup and cookies were enjoyed - that's our favorite extra thing that we do, and it's nice to have it noticed.

We look forward to seeing you again next year or sooner when you're back for another Columbia River Gorge or Portland explore!

All the best,
Loree

I picked this off the map, since we would be driving into Portland from the east on I-84 during afternoon rush hour. That worked out great & we did not suffer any rush-hour slowdowns. The hotel is nearly new & quite comfortable, but the location is between the Troutdale airport & a vacant lot. Although Troutdale is directly south of the hotel on the other side of I-84, you need to drive a half-mile west to get under I-84, then work back to Troutdale.

Room Tip: The Troutdale Airport is west of the hotel & might produce some noise. The east side rooms fac...
