"The hotel was well-kept and clean; seemed newer than it was. The trains added to our stay rather than being a problem. We enjoyed our stay. Go across the Bridge of the Gods and spend an afternoon at the Bonneville Hot Springs.2015-04-12"
"We had a restful stay at this hotel. Beautiful grounds, and the pool and whirlpool were great. Friendly, helpful staff. One could just stay on the premises and be content. Simple but good food in the bar area. Kids were welcomed. The zip line looked fun.2015-07-19"
"Great experience with the exception of the kids running around in the room above ours. The hotel was clean, and the room was exceptional. Couldn't use the toaster and microwave at breakfast at the same time or it tripped the power strip. Ask for a room on the top floor if you like quiet.2020-08-10"
"The hotel room was clean but a bit run-down. I really appreciated the extra key security for entry and for using the elevator. Breakfast was provided, but there were no hot items.2022-03-11"
"Clean hotel and comfortable beds. The hotel staff was pleasant. You can stay here without regrets.2017-11-27"
"The hotel room was nice. The bed was comfortable, and the bedding looked clean. The AC struggled to cool the room, but was fine by the next morning. The complimentary soap smelled terrible, but I liked the hair conditioner. The staff was slow to respond to a clogged toilet, but let us check out due to the delay. Small but comfortable pool area, and the whirlpool was just right after a stressful day. The ice machine on my floor was out of service, so I had to go to another floor for ice. There were soda vending machines, but no snacks available. Breakfast was better than I expected. Fairly decent hotel; worth the price.2016-07-25"
"Fairly convenient to Multnomah Falls. The hotel room was clean and comfortable, and the staff was friendly. Breakfast was hearty and got me through a 5-mile hike to a waterfall. A good option.2016-05-15"
"My room was decent, clean, and comfortable. Staff was courteous and available to help. The buffet breakfast was more than I expected. We'll definitely stay again if we're in the area.2015-09-20"
"We were mostly happy with our hotel stay. The room was still being cleaned after we checked in, so the clerk gave us an upgraded room that was ready. The key card didn't work, so we had to return to the desk yet again to have it re-set. We were pleased with the room once we got settled in, and it was quiet. Our only complaint was that the paper coffee cups, which we didn't like using in the microwave to make tea.2018-11-08"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
