The Columbia Gorge and Mt. Hood Area Travel Guide

The Columbia Gorge and Mt. Hood Area Hotels

The region is close enough that you could spend a day or two exploring the Gorge and Mt. Hood, using Portland hotels as your base. The best way to fully appreciate the Gorge, however, is to spend a night or two—look to Hood River and The Dalles for the largest selections of lodging options, although you’ll also find some noteworthy resorts, motels, and B&Bs in some of the towns between Portland

and Hood River, on both sides of the river. There are a couple of run-of-the-mill motels in Goldendale, but otherwise, you won’t find any accommodations in the region east of The Dalles. The slopes of Mt. Hood are dotted with smart ski resorts, and towns like Government Camp and Welches have a mix of rustic and contemporary vacation rentals. The closer you are to Mt. Hood in any season, the earlier you'll want to reserve. With ski country working ever harder to attract summer patrons, Mt. Hood resorts like Timberline Lodge and Mt. Hood Skibowl offer some worthwhile seasonal specials.
