  • Hampton Inn & Suites
Just a short 5 minute walk from the Event Site and close to town too. This is a new construction hotel with all the amenities and a pretty decent free breakfast.
  • Oak Street Hotel 
The Oak Street hotel is the epitome of a classic Bed & Breakfast.  Right in the heart of downtown it's about a 15-20 minute walk to the Event Site or a 5 minute drive.
  • Air B&B
Hood River is an Air B&B mecca with options ranging from condos, private rooms, whole houses, or camping space.  Listings are up now but many locals open up their listings in March and April. That doesn't mean wait! If this is the path you want to go then check often and when you see something you like be on it.
