We love when we stumble upon the cutest places to stay, and Hotel Stevenson is one of them! We recently took a little overnight trip to Stevenson, Washington and without knowing it, had the perfect stay at Hotel Stevenson. If you’re looking for where to stay in the Columbia River Gorge, you have to check out Hotel Stevenson!
Hotel Stevenson is located in Stevenson, Washington, right in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge. It is a boutique hotel with 12 rooms, all decorated differently. Dave and Terri, the owners, have put their heart and soul into renovating this hotel, and we loved getting the opportunity to chat with them both.
Hotel Stevenson was transformed and remodeled in 2020, but the building itself has been there since 1909 originally as the Colonial Hotel . Hotel Stevenson is right downtown, with plenty of shops and restaurants to walk to. It’s super close to the river and Stevenson Landing where the cruise ships dock. Plus it’s a convenient hotel in the Columbia Gorge if you’re hiking, wine-tasting, or adventuring in the gorge. Hotel Stevenson was one of the best places to stay in the Columbia River Gorge.
Rooms at Hotel Stevenson
With 12 boutique rooms, on 2 levels, the hotel feels comfy and cozy. There are rooms with full, queen, and king beds, as well as a junior suite with a loveseat. You can see on the website what each room has to offer. Some rooms even have the more picturesque view of the river and Columbia River Gorge. Plus Hotel Stevenson is one of the dog friendly hotels in the Columbia River Gorge. They allow one dog to stay in any of the rooms on the first floor, for $30/night.
We stayed in Room 10 for the California King bed and walk-in shower! This was the best bed we’ve ever slept in! It was so comfy, we didn’t want to get it! Plus 2 chairs in a cute little seating area, a small Keurig, a spacious bathroom with a walk-in shower, and a great view of the view!
Hotel Stevenson Amenities
Hotel Stevenson has a great little in-house cafe that includes beer, wine, small plates, and appetizers. Plus they’ll even serve you breakfast for an additional price. We didn’t eat dinner there, but we had plenty of beer and wine! And we had a delicious breakfast in the morning, while we took in the views of the Columbia River. Everything we had was so delicious!
