Very Clean Motel Near Everything Fun
Reviewed 25 July, 2021
We stayed at this motel for two nights. It's very clean and come with a microwave, coffee pot, refrigerator, and blow dryer. The air conditioner worked great. There isn't a great view of anything from the motel, but it is very near everything you'll want to see. The employees are really nice. We accidentally locked ourselves out of the bathroom in the middle of night and couldn't find any way to open the door. When we called the office the first thing in the morning, they advised us to use the edge of a coin to open the door; it worked! We'd definitely stay in this motel again the next time we are in Hood River. You'll appreciate the cleanliness and A/C.

$162.00 per night. Really? This motel is across the street from Safeway . Two stories. $10.00 extra to stay on the second floor. If you stay here stay on the second floor or you will hear your upstairs neighbor's every footstep. The town was sold out so we stayed here out of desperation. 'Basic' is the word that comes to mind. Old beds. Thin towels. Noises, really noisy, air conditioning. Shower curtains enclosing a bathtub. Friendly folks run it but , as a VERY frequent traveler ( see my other reviews) I would expect to pay about 89.00-99.00 per night. There are new hotels in Hood River at the same price point. No breakfast. Free parking right outside your window. 1 mile from downtown.
An unintended blessing

Sunset Motel Hood River, is beyond amazing! In order to fully understand my rating, let me briefly explain the events that led to our (my mother and I) stay at this terrific motel. Around 12pm, our rental truck had a major breakdown. We were able to pull safely off the road into a small state park area and contact roadside. Once it was determined that we would not be back on the road until possibly next day, I was instructed to make a hotel reservation so that roadside could locate and dispatch a towing vendor to move us and our truck to the hotel location. Due to a limit budget, I picked what seemed to be the most reasonably priced choice nearby. Due to several complications, we did not arrive to the motel until nearly 11pm with a 16ft moving truck in tow. Check in was smooth, friendly and the manager and his wife went above and beyond every expectation I had of customer service. Our only option for parking, due to the parking lot being full, was to have the truck put into the RV park adjacent to the Motel (also ran by the Motel). When I explained to the manager that there was absolutely no other spot to fit my truck, they allowed me to park in the RV lot. Next morning, I was able to reserve the room for an additional night; as we were now waiting for a new truck, loaders and broken truck removal.
So, with all that we have gone through with our rental truck, Sunset Motel was more than just clean, friendly, comfortable and convenient. They were compassionate, understanding and beyond accommodating. I am at a loss for words to truly do justice on describing the amenities of this motel. What I can say, is that it was an experience that made a very terrible situation...much easier to deal with.

Terrible service and very noisy. I will never stay here again. The ice maker is broke, you can hear every car that goes by. The owners care nothing about taking care of a customer. Over charged us by $50 per night.

Good location to the west side of Hood River, clean rooms, etc. BUT, there is zero insulation between floors and the people in the room upstairs kept us awake most of the night! It sounded like they were wearing ski boots on a vinyl floor, dropping stuff on the floors, noisy tv, it went on and on. Would never stay here again. Or, maybe book an upstairs room...
