Great price - clean (though dated & mismatched) room.
Location very near the regatta venue
The room smelled musty, no maid service the first day, many broken things in the room i.e. lamp, armoire drawer, etc., chair was badly stained
They give a wrong address and are not what they describe in the ad. The toilet was clogged and we couldn't unclog it. There were no ammenities there. It was one of the worst places I've ever been to. He acts like he doesn't know why the address is wrong, but we can stay there. Never again.
Local food establisments were above par
1St room was flooded from the laundry service and smelled of mold. 2Nd room was of 1960's vintage with no lighting by the beds. Television was not connected properly ( Very fuzzy ) refridgeration unit was dirty with q-tip lying in the control panel. No window screen on the 1st floor allowing for easy access from out side. Owner was more than willing to acept cash with no receipt. Photos on website must be 20 to 40 years old.
We got "upgraded" to a king
The sink took all night to drain, the water first came out brown in the sink, the TV reception was like the old "rabbit ears", the sheets didn't look clean and the sheets were put on sideways
The price and location not bad, local restaurant and bar in walking distance.
Dark, rooms were dark, lighting was dark, very basic room at a very basic the shower / bathroom facilities leave much to be desired...strange design, lighting not good in room
The Columbia Gorge Inn is a great jumping-off place for day hikers--at lowest price in the area. It's clean and the king-size bed was very comfortable. There was lots of hot shower water and the owner is very nice. Please note: You should disregard old evaluations as the owner just took over within the past two years. Finally: If you're looking for a resort, this is not it. This facility provides only the basics, but it suited us very well.
We had to ask for towels the first day, but after that they were automatically provided. It would be helpful to have bedside lighting.
Price is too high by twice for this place. Built in the sixties and not updated. Not even security locks on doors.
Location and they were the only motel that had the number of rooms we needed available. The bed was comfortable and we appreciated having the tiny coffee maker in the room. The woman who checked us in did give us 3 upgraded rooms because the ones we had reserved were not ready.
When we checked in the rooms that we reserved were not ready and the person who helped us seemed very confused and not organized. She called someone on the phone while I was there and told them they had to come to work because they needed rooms cleaned. She did give us 3 upgraded rooms for the same price as the ones I had reserved. Apparently they were clean and I got 4 of the 5 room keys we needed. Before I left I had asked if the 5th roomn would be ready within an hour when the last of my family members arrived and was told it would be. It was not ready when they arrived and they had to sit in a nearby park to pass some time until it was finished. A child was sitting at a computer on the check-in desk and she basically ignored me when I came into the office. I asked her to get someone to check me in and all she did was call out for her mom once. When no one came and the little girl continued to ignore me, I stepped outside the door and rang the door bell to let my presence be known. I am not impressed with the staff and the motel is very shabby. The bathroom door handle was falling off and I almost got locked in it - the door was very hard to open. The hair dryer in the room was also broken.
The price was rather reasonable. It was a no-nonsense place. The location was quite nice but the town itself is somewhat dead.
The hotel is old. The rooms where stale. Could do with some airing. The lighting was done by tube lights. It is a budget hotel so one must be reasonable and not expect too much. Since there's no entertainment, it is a place where you sleep and leave the next morning.
The rooms were adequate, would have appreciated a little refrigerator. I appreciated the price, $79/night.
The impression upon arriving at the office is very tacky and messy. Usually a motel office is somewhat comfortable, clean, organized and attractive, and the clerk is usually there or in a nearby room. Imagine my shock when greeted by a sign on the desk that gave two long distance numbers to call for service!! No one was there. Apparently the person I called reached a woman who was cleaning rooms in the motel, who eventually arrived to check me in. Even though a month before I had requested two rooms as adjacent as possible to my family, as I would be babysitting my infant granddaughter at times during our stay, I was told upon check-in that no nearby rooms were available and they weren't aware I had requested it. Later looked on my e-registration forms and I had written the request in then. The rooms were as far apart as they could possibly have been. The office looked like a messy garage with just a table instead of a desk, that had a cloth draped over the front to cover what was underneath. Like they were there for a garage sale! There were buckets and mops and a direct view to another messy storage room. Just not professional. And clearly not enough staff. Don't expect any services. This is a bare bones sleeping room with a shower. No pool, no continental breakfast, no blanket on the bed or stored in the room, just a sheet and bedspread. Thankfully, the rooms were OK, but the shower had grime on the floor tiles, and they forgot to tell me how to turn the TV on with a wall switch, so I thought it wasn't working. I reported it the next day and a guy handed me a $10 refund from his pocket. That was good.
The lobby of this Inn was the messiest and the dirtiest I have ever stepped in. Although the room was reasonably clean and the bed was actually very comfortable, it smelled musty and we were afraid to open the windows to air out the room because we saw someone running by our ground floor window and when we looked out we saw men's underpants and undershirt lying outside our window. Also, we saw someone in a truck brandishing a very large (over 12 inches) knife out his driver's side window and uttering threats to passersby. There is no way that this place should have a three star rating. Someone needs to go out to investigate. We booked for two nights on-line, but regretted it the moment we walked in.
This was not a good experience...the room was not clean, the bathroom was below standard...and no hot water...No remote for TV...Had I looked at the room before we paid for it....I Would not have stayed. We should have politely gone somewhere else.
How about someone go check on the hotel...and check out room 8...and then you can give a review. The office desk person was not aware of the 2 queens, and if I hadn't had the paper.we would have had one bed...the charge was off...not by much...but we were already on a roll. Not a good experience.
Please give Cascade Lodge a better rating. I dumped my unhappiness on it and it was this one that was bad. So I retrack my comments that I put in your system for Cascade Lodge. It was best out of the four that we booked thru you. And could stay at Cascade Lodge in Bend, OR again.
This was the nasty, dirty one. Very Sub Standard. Do you visit them? example: The ice bag was still in the water in the ice bucket from the guests before. Dirt on the floor in the shower, cobwebs above sink, saw dust in the drawer beside the sink, no tissues in the holder etc. etc.
I did not like the Columbia Inn.
The drapes didn't work, there was no a/c, there was no hot water.
