Hello VT'ers Am I the 1st to ask a question on Hood River and the Columbia Gorge Areas? This August around the 23rd I'm planning a 3-4 day visit and would like to know about some of the "reasonable" hotels in the area. I know about a couple resorts close by that are a lillte out of my range. Somewhere between 80/night up to 140/night; for 3-4 adults. Then, we plan on 3-4 nights up in southern Washington in the Gifford Pinchot Area. I was thinking about the Packwood/Randle Area for the 2nd part of our visit. Thanks for your input. What about Cascade Locks or The Dalles or even Mt Hood for lodging? Are these places too far from the many falls located in the Gorge?
Good link for hotels in the area. There is no concert schedule for the Gorge yet. I hope you will be there for a good show.
Hood River Hotel is a lovely choice....see my Mt Hood pages for more info: [original VT link] Hope you find it helpful! Iluvtrvl
The Shilo Inns chain has several Oregon properties. We always stay in the one in The Dalles and it's great. There's a really nice hotel next to the big fancy Columbia Gorge hotel ... same great view and way cheaper. Vagabond, maybe? (This is in Hood River.) Maryhill Museum is an amazing place if you get that far east (maybe 20 miles from The Dalles). Also the Stonehenge there is worth a visit. Enjoy.
