Charming historic hotel in an equally charming town.Feels like stepping back to mid 20th centutry small town america. Rooms very comfortable and well apointed. The Birch street lounge a few blocks away is a world class "vintage cocktail " lounge and worth the trip to Camas by itself. Breakfast up the street in the classic diner completes the package for the trip back in time. Cant think of a better way to begin the journey to explore the Columbia Gorge and its breathtaking beauty.

We stayed at the Camas Hotel for two nights in early October, 2013. At my request, gluten free breakfast items were provided and almond milk as well. The room was nicely appointed and the bedding was very nice. Shower was great and the bathroom pretty large. The one thing that was a detractor was the train traffic, which you can't avoid hearing. Earplugs are provided and if you're easily awakened, you should consider wearing them. Our friends closed their windows and turned on the fan in the AC unit and were fine. I dolike that the windows open! We ate dinner at the Harvest restaurant and while it was good, my friend had to send her meat back to be cooked longer - that's why there are only 3 stars on the Dining. We had a great weekend and enjoyed our stay and the town of Camas.

The Camas Hotel was everything I expected and more! I decided to surprise my husband with an one-night stay for his birthday in their King suite with the Jacuzzi tub and it was perfect. We were able to walk to the local theater and bar to have the complete experience. I do not live far from Camas so it was just a little local get-a-way but it was perfect. The only critique that I have is that it would have been nice to have room service available later at night. Overall best hotel experience I have had and will definitely be going back.

This was our first time in the Portland area and we wanted to stay at a bed and breakfast not downtown Portland. We were very pleasantly surprised by this gem of a hotel/B&B approx. 20 minutes from downtown Portland and about 12 minutes from PDX. The room we had (number 2) was large with beamed ceilings and all updated linens (the bed was the most comfortable bed I have slept in for a hotel that I can remember)! and a nice sized bathroom. It is always a nice touch to have fine toiletries too. Now, depending on which way you come into town don't be put off by the Georgia Pacific plant. When you turn into the downtown area you will be surrounded by tree lined streets and unique shops and restaurants. The Harvest restaurant right by the Camas Hotel was wonderful so make sure you include that in your plans.

The Camas Hotel is a very pleasant place to stay. The rooms are comfy and clean. We had a room that included breakfast which was fresh and delicious. It is located in downtown Camas, WA and is within walking distance of many restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again!

Camas is a cute little town, too bad it is right near the Paper Mill. Smell is sometimes hard to take. Room was comfortable, nice amenities. Silly basket of snacks in your room that they want to charge you for. $2 for a candy bar. Put it in the lobby, seems tacky to have it in the room. They give you complementary tickets to the local movie theater, nice touch. Wish instead they would give you a discount at the attached restaurant, Harvest. Good food, a little pricey considering where it is. Breakfast was fine. Glad they saved the old building.

Enjoyed our stay at Camas hotel. The room was smaller than we had expected. It was clean, but there was no garbage can in the room or bathroom, only a recycling bin...kinda strange. The room always felt rather damp, so we had to run the AC more than we would have liked. It was very quiet, so it made sleeping very easy and the bed was comfortable. Unfortunately the hotel is near a papermill, so it often smelled of raw sewage or sauerkraut - not their fault, but still very unpleasant. Staff was very accommodating and even went out and bought us almond milk for the breakfast, as we do not drink "regular" milk.
Risposta del proprietario
A quick note about the mill on the edge of town - about 7 years ago environmental award winning smokestacks were installed so there are only about 5 days in the entire year when one might notice a very faint sulphery smell in the downtown area. At this point the mill has downsized considerably, and eventually it will go the way of the dinosaur.

My husband and I saw a summer concert at Maryhill Winery and all of the immediately close hotels were sold out. I found The Camas Hotel and promptly booked a room in spite of the 1:45 minute drive. A day or two before our arrival I received an email confirming our reservation and offering assistance. I inquired about area restaurants which might be open late on a Saturday. They responded with several options. The hotel is boutique style and was visually charming and alluring from the moment we pulled up. It is nestled in the heart of Camas' VERY small, but delightful, downtown. We arrived late to find the front doors still open and an envelope with our name waiting on the front desk. Inside was a brief welcome letter explaining the basics of the hotel and giving us our keys. There were some interesting areas throughout the hotel including the floor with rooms sharing a communal bathroom. The bathroom was huge and lovely and clean. There was also a sort of second floor green room with tables for eating and an small fridge. A really pretty room which would make for a lovely spot to unpack a meal. Our 3rd floor room (ensuite) was beautifully appointed in a modern style with a big and comfortable king bed, wonderful bedding, a spacious bathroom and all the desired amenities. Worth noting was the offer of bottled water from the minibar for $1.50 a bottle rather than the typical $5 water offerings in most hotel minibars. The room was spotlessly clean. Although it turned out that the restaurants they had recommended were actually not serving food beyond 10 pm, we found a vintage cocktail lounge, Birch Street Uptown Lounge, just a block away that had a delicious little small plates menu as well as wonderful service and drinks. We only stayed on night and lingered in the morning for breakfast, but for a quick and romantic getaway we will absolutely be back. The restaurant next door to the hotel looked interesting too.

The attention to detail in this lovingly restored hotel are apparent everywhere. Beautiful rooms and baths, softest linens, polished antiques, 5 star amenities, and personal hospitality at it's best, are only a few of the pleasures of this little diamond in historic Camas. At twice the price, it would still be a bargain! I don't want to give away all the surprises, just choose to stay at Camas Hotel, and experience them all for yourself. You wont be sorry. Thank you Camas Hotel, for a delightful, enchanting stay. Susan, Phoenix AZ. August 2013

We stopped here on the last night of our journey to Seattle. We arrived after normal check-in and after the front desk had closed for the night, but the staff made it very easy for us to find our way. The rooms were cute and clean. There was a slight damp smell coming from the sink in the room but for just one night it didn't bother us too much. We would absolutely stay here again if we were visiting Portland or passing through again. Downtown Camas was also very cute and pleasant and felt very safe.

The rooms were great, and I'd always choose an historic building over a new one any day. We really enjoyed the Camas downtown too. I just wasn't overly impressed with the breakfast. It was something you would've gotten and any cheap hotel. Nothing was bad, I was just expecting a little more from a "Bed and Breakfast".

My wife & I recently stayed at the Camas Hotel in quaint downtown Camas WA. The 100+ year old hotel has been lovingly restored while keeping its historic character. The room was small but very comfortable and tastefully appointed. We had in-room coffee maker, Wi-Fi & flat screen TV. The hotel is located in the center of town, we walked to the Farmers market and nearby antiques stores. As part of our room rental, we received complimentary tickets to the Liberty Theater & watched a movie in another beautifully restored building. Next door to the hotel was the Harvest Restaurant where we enjoyed an outstanding dinner of meatloaf and salmon. In the morning, we took advantage of the complimentary breakfast in the glass covered atrium cafe. There two kinds of delicious quiche as well as an assortment of breads, pasties & fresh fruit salad with mango, cantaloupe & berries, yum! The coffee was excellent as well. It was a perfect getaway for us and we will return soon!

We enjoyed our stay but being from out of town it would have been nice to know before our check in date about the street fair and how crowded it would be, especially with the heat and having to walk back and forth from our car.

Great stay! Came into OR to check out Portland. Found this B & B outside of the hustle and bustle of the city. Not too far out of town but feels worlds away. Charming hotel; updated recently. Hotel definitely has history. They did a wonderful job at updating and upgrading hotel with keeping it's historical charm. The little kitchenette with patio was a favorite spot to eat breakfast and start the day with some fresh air. Room was super comfy. Had to ask for brand of mattress as it was so comfortable which was funny because just after I did, there was another couple that came down and was asking about the sheets! Staff was very personable and pleasant; helpful with suggestions for food options and places to visit. Would definitely stay here again and suggest to others to do the same.

I booked this hotel because my niece came to visit and she flew into Portland; we live in Olympia WA, so to save time we stayed in the area. When we were driving into the town, I must say I was a bit skeptical, but soon the beauty and charm of the street where the hotel is located revealed to us. Wow, it was charming. The room was very clean, service great and the BEST breakfast ever; fresh seasonal fruit, delicious quiche, and overall an excellent experience. I travel a lot for pleasure and business and by far this hotel is one of the best charming hotels I have stayed recently. It reminds me of a place we stayed in Pisa Italy. I recommend it!

For our 20th anniversary I ordered the Romance pkg, bottle of bubbly, roses and chocolates. We were delayed in arriving, and I received a call about when we would be checking in so that our room would be "prepared". Hummm, it took me a bit to realize that was very thoughtful, because we didn't get in 'till 9pm, and the celebratory beverage was in a fresh bucket of ice! My wife was pleasantly surprised at the extras. The addition of the bathroom in the room takes up space, but for people who don't like the bath down the hall it's worth it. Pillows and bed were very comfortable. The town is very pleasant even though we spent most of our time in Portland it's an easy 20 minutes back to Camas. A nice quaint place to stay.

Don't book 3rd floor rooms in the summer. My room was large and clean -- and suffocatingly hot. The hotel posting mentions access to a community kitchen for these bargain rooms so if you are a youth hostel or camper type, maybe this is find. If you are not, pay a little more for a big, nice, air-conditioned second floor room. I moved to one that was clean and comfy and COOL. Breakfast is adequate but not available until 8 a.m. Unless you have a second-floor room where there are coffeemakers, you're stuck going out for coffee. The tiny town of Camas is charming and you have about 10 minutes worth of shopping there plus a tiny restored theater with some good movies at great prices is next door. The restaurant below the hotel, Harvest, is fantastic.

We were in the Honey-room suite and it really is a lovely room with a stupendous bathroom. Everywhere was clean and comfortable and the furnishings really matched the decor. It was a surprise for my husband's birthday and staff really helped to pull off the surprise - they were very kind and quick to respond to any questions. I would recommend the hotel to everyone. The restaurant on the first floor of the hotel left a lot to be desired though. I had booked a table and were able to get a nice view of the street. The restaurant was not crowded. However, the food took well over an hour to arrive. My husband said his dish was good but but mine was not. The shoe-string fries were raw inside and the meatloaf was rather dry. I didn't eat much of it. The next morning, we had a very nice continental breakfast in the hotel and spent a happy couple of hours wandering around downtown Camas - full of lovely little interesting shops.

The heat for the hotel is run by a historic boiler room which makes the rooms very warm but by opening the window and running the air conditioner we were quite comfortable! Also the room is almost totally sound proof which was great as we had our 1-year-old daughter with us. We would definitely come here again!

I've been traveling to the Portland-Vancouver area for several years, staying a few days at a time while I visit my son. This is my favorite spot for access to the river, Vancouver and north-eastern Portland. It is minutes from PDX, Vancouver's downtown, malls, etc. I like its quaint feel, the owners, the WiFi, the restaurant right next door (under new, super-fun owners now - no longer "fine dining" but more casual with a very inexpensive - yet unique and good - menu. Drop into the bar for a wine or a cocktail. Stroll the streets and shop. Duck in for a great pizza down the street. Love this boutique old small town hotel that is very easy to get in/out of. I'll never stay anywhere else. Great value.

I wanted to "get out of Dodge" with my wife for her birthday this summer. As usual, my great idea of trying to stay at one of the "McM" historic properties didn't work because they were all booked. I went searching for something with a classic feel and landed on bedandbreakfast.com and came across Camas Hotel. Camas Hotel is around 100 years old and maintains that classic feel while having those conveniences we have all gotten used to (like A/C). I found they had a room available and we went. We found an adorable room with a private bath and a luxurious bed. We wandered the town and discovered several little shops, restaurants, & an antique mall to enjoy. It was such an enjoyable first visit that we have returned again to enjoy ourselves a second time. I think I have found our new "get out of Dodge" place!

Wanted to visit the Columbia River Gorge for the first time. Flew google maps up the river looking for lodging town by town using Trip Advisor. So Camas is near the beginning of the Gorge, and bingo, a couple from California has been busy making a down and out hotel into an outstanding boutique hotel, and is often the case when building a reputation, make it an outstanding value to boot. Get it while you can at these prices, this is a $200+ a night place. Great rooms, ours was small, but this is a 100 year old building. Great continental breakfast, with great quiche, and a very nice quaint downtown that is perfect for meandering after a long day at the Gorge. Super $3 movies on main street, and and outstanding restaurant called Ka'nape a block of the hotel, that is also an outstanding value for the money. No they are not perfect, the maid forgot to check our coffee supply, but they made it right, and for some reason our room was hot, so we had to run the AC, even though it was 60 out. But all and all, just a great, great choice if you want to see the Gorge and get some R&R in the evenings.

We had a good stay here for one night but don’t know if I would do it again. It is a quirky little hotel that has been refurbished rather nicely on a tree lined street that has a small town atmosphere. Many shops line the street with some good restaurant choices for dinner and one for breakfast. Unfortunately the shops close at five so there is nothing to do after dinner except the movie theater that the Hotel gives you passes to. It was noisy while we were there but the Hotel provides ear plugs if you don’t wish to use the air conditioning. It is also just a block away from the paper mill and while we didn’t have any problems with noise or smell it is a very large structure and detracts from the area. The service was fine but not exceptional and the continental breakfast wasn’t worth using. There is a little restaurant just down the street that offers great breakfast so I suggest you go there. This problem may be fixed soon because they are opening a new restaurant in the building that will provide breakfast for the hotel. They could provide vouchers for breakfast to the restaurant down the street and make this a nonissue until the other one is up and running. If you need to stay in Camas, this place would be ok for a night or two but if you need to stay longer I would find somewhere else.

This was a very thoughtful review, and we appreciate the honest feedback. We understand that a Continental breakfast, even with fresh fruit, yogurt, cheese, pastries, bagels, cereals, quiche, coffee, tea and orange juice, is not the same as a hot breakfast with bacon or sausage, but it seems to suit most guests. When the restaurant reopens we do plan to offer hot breakfast there, at least on weekends, which should satisfy guests looking for something more substantial. One correction: We are actually located three blocks from the old mill on the West side of town, on a pretty tree lined street. For longer stays, we recommend some of our larger rooms for greater comfort - Rooms 2, 3, 5 & 10 are more spacious. As for nightlife, Camas is fairly quiet, but there is a cute traditional cocktail bar nearby called the Birch Street Uptown Lounge. As of course, it is just a hop, skip and a jump to downtown Portland!

I visited Camas for only one day and stayed at the Camas Hotel- what a charming place! I loved the room (queen bed with full tub). It looked like they put some thoughts into the furnishing and the decor, which gave it a very homely atmosphere rather than a plain, static hotel room. The complimentary breakfast offered simple selections. The breakfast patio/bar was very relaxed and a place to enjoy any light meal, tea, or coffee. The staff were very kind, helpful, and made me feel very welcome. I would be very happy to stay at the Camas Hotel again when the opportunity comes again!

The third floor is the "budget" floor, with rooms that share one lavatory and a community kitchen. It's charmingly European in that way. The third floor is evidently used as an extended-stay area, as well, so some of the guests were clearly residents. It was inconvenient to share one restroom among ten or so rooms, many of which contained more than one resident/guest. I would suggest that another restroom be installed, but otherwise I had no complaints whatsoever. The room was very comfortable, stylishly furnished, and had a great view. The hotel was quiet, and although the trains did go by throughout the night, and the air does have that particular and specific "lumber mill" smell, I was not annoyed or disturbed. I checked in to get away and to work on a project, and was able to do both things undisturbed, and quite comfortably. Thanks much to the proprietors! (P.s. I scored three stars on "dining," simply because I did not dine in the hotel or at the restaurant downstairs, but it wouldn't let me skip the question.)

I am writing to post a correction to the review above. We have 3 full bathrooms on our third floor not one. However, we need to make that more clear our guests! In addition, each room has personal sinks in order to reduce bathroom traffic. Our third floor is a work in progress, which is why the rates are quite modest. All rooms may be booked nightly or weekly, and some are used for longer stays - traveling nurses or local construction projects, etc. We appreciate the high marks for cleanliness and attractive rooms. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

Decided to stay here for one night as a romantic getaway with my boyfriend, and it was definitely cute and well-kept, and the service was also great. However, for what we paid, I felt like the room was pretty small, the window air conditioner was not cool enough, and the breakfast was pretty average. Maybe it's more worth the price during non-peak times, but I felt a little underwhelmed.

I looked for a location within a reasonable drive from PDX airport because I wanted to avoid downtown traffic and the usual boring travel chains that circle any large city airport. This small boutique hotel came up in my search and I am pleased that it did. The cost is very reasonable, the service is excellent (I requested feather pillows, and they emailed me to task how many?). The hotel is situated next to a very excellent restaurant and in a lovely downtown tree lined historic district of the small town of Camas, a small town in Washington State east of Vancouver and along the Columbia River, perhaps a 25 minute drive from PDX. The rooms and beds are comfortable and quaint, the hotel has a wonderful ambience of personal attention, and the staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The free wireless service was faster than I have experienced elsewhere. Rooms are fully appointed and have water and snacks for sale along with a small fridge. (They need to offer dark chocolate as one of their in-room snack options and they'll cater better to chocoholics). There are several restaurant options within easy walking distance along with a vintage movie theatre (can you believe ticket prices under $5?). The people I met were all very friendly. My only qualm was that that the noise from an adjacent room was noticeable (there were children staying there). They do provide a Continental breakfast in a sunny, bright centrally located room - a very pleasant atmosphere, and cold cereal, muffins and quiche are provided. Personally, at a hotel like this, I would like to have an option for purchasing a full breakfast in the restaurant. With a place having this much character and charm, why spoil the ambience with the kitchen corner offerings of a Comfort Inn? Overall, I was quite pleased and would not hesitate to recommend the Camas Hotel. I hope it is able to retain its charm.

The room was wonderful, and the continental breakfast was great - quiche, yogurt, fruit, juice, coffee, pastries, etc. The bed was very comfortable, and I love how old the building was - plenty of character. Very clean, wine glasses in room, fridge, etc. Wonderful value, would highly recommend!

I enjoyed 2 nights with Camas Hotel B&B while visiting with family and friends in Camas and Portland. The room was clean and quiet. They have lovely breakfast area with ample variety of delicious breakfast choices. Got delicious take-out dessert from Olivers next door late one night. Karen helped with airport travel arrangements also.

I reserved a room as a last-minute getaway for my wife and I. I ordered the romance package which included roses, sparkling wine and a gift certificate for Oliver's (the on-site restaurant). Owner Karen was very accommodating and helped make this a real special stay for my wife. I confess that we really didn't stray too far from the hotel; it is a neat little downtown area. We enjoyed a nice lunch at Natalia's Cafe just down the street before we checked in. While checking in Karen gave a brochure of the local area and recommended the Liberty theater as an inexpensive place to catch a movie ($3.50 for all shows). Following our delightful and intimate dinner at Oliver's, my wife and I did just that. The breakfast the following day was great. I'll definitely be putting this on my list of places to visit again.

My husband and I flew in from Minneapolis on our honeymoon and spent our first and last nights at Camas Hotel. In fact, we checked into a hotel in Portland and cancelled it the moment we looked at the room. We wanted to end our honeymoon feeling as glorious as it started. It was like coming home to friends. We were remembered and celebrated. You'll love it here!

We had a wonderful weekend here, enjoying the weather, the quaint hotel and a fabulous Street Faire ! The hotel owners were very helpful showing us to our room and explaining all the little extras included. My only wish was that breakfast was served a little earlier on the weekend. We will definitely return! R and MLM

My mom and I decided to stay at the Camas Hotel instead of settling for a hotel closer to the Portland airport and we couldn't have been happier...We enjoyed checking out the shops and jaunting around town, the room was darling, and the person who checked us in was very helpful-she even printed the boarding passes for my mom's flight. The continental breakfast was very nice too with a good selection of fresh fruits along with yogurt, banana bread, coffee..I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Portland area, especially if they are looking for something more personal than the average lodging near the airport.

Our family loved staying here while we visited the Portland area. We got the adjoining rooms 9 & 10. Very clean and nice. The rooms were a little small, but completely met all our needs and were an awesome value for the money. Don't expect a big fancy breakfast; it's the basic contintental style. Do expect a wonderful inn in a quaint little town. We'd definitely stay here again.

It's rare to find a hotel of this caliber for the same price as a budget chain hotel. We booked late and got the smallest room, but the furniture was cleverly arranged so that the room was still comfortable, and very cute. As others have mentioned, the beds are amazingly comfortable! Their "green" efforts are commendable as well, from the open windows to save air conditioning, to the earth friendly toiletries from a local source, to the biodegradable cutlery at breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, it's hard to beat fresh fruit, quiche, warm bagels and pastries, and Chobani yogurt on the covered porch! The innkeepers were friendly and helpful, and made our stay enjoyable.

Super high-end mattress, bedding and linens. VERY clean and expertly finished refurbishment of rooms in an historic building. Furnishings are not necessarily antiques, but are tasteful and appropriate. Easy to find, far enough from Portland to feel out of the fray, yet close enough to just dash over for a few hours or all day.

This charming hotel is an amazing find. It is both beautiful and cozy. The rooms are fantastic and the service is five star. I would highly recommend this hotel to both business and leisure travelers.

What a delightful hotel, European in style and located in a neat little town just half an hour from Portland! The rooms are nicely furnished and spotlessly kept—small in size and even smaller in price. The owner is on site and provides the kind of personal service you rarely see today. She called us when we left something behind and offered to ship it to us. Continental breakfast on the rooftop patio was very good. Why stay in Portland when you can enjoy the charm and quiet of the Camas Hotel and it's bargain prices?

Stayed one night. Room was very clean and comfortable. Beautiful decor and soft bed. There is a train that went through town twice that evening with a large horn but earplugs were provided in the room for your comfort. Was a little disappointed with the breakfast spread the next day. I was expecting more but we did have delightful conversations with other guests. I would not call this a B&B but had a great time for the most part.

We loved our stay! The hotel was very quaint, nicely renovated. Our room was cozy and clean. Noise was not an issue either, we hardly heard the breakfast setup and neighbors. The front desk person was also very helpful with all our questions and made great suggestions for sightseeing and dining. An antique fair was going on the street just outside the hotel this weekend and it made it even better. Great dining for foodies was right there or around the corner. Oliver's next door served us a tasty lunch on this busy weekend at very reasonable prices. We are hoping to come back soon to Camas to enjoy another get away into this little gem.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the charming Camas Hotel. The hotel is tastfully decorated and our king room had top quality linens and all the needed ammenities. A variety of options was available for the continental breakfast including a delicious quiche and fresh local fruit. Innkeepers Karen and Thomas Hall were extremely helpful and friendly. We are looking forward to staying here again. Highly recommed the hotel.

Great centrally located 100 year old hotel refurbished with a European flair but the high price. Greeted warmly by innkeepers Karen and Tom, you will feel like staying with friends. The rooms are spacious. have fluffy beds, crisp linens, a TV and a small fridge for drinks or snacks. Breakfast is continental but very substantial. Uncommon Gifts and Camas Antiques for shopping. Natalia's for breakfast, Twilight Pizza for dinner or for a more upscale meal or just appetizers and drinks Oliver's at Camas Hotel is right downstairs. This is a little gem right in the heart of Camas. We're going back soon!

It should be noted that this is not a B & B. It is a hotel with so much character that you feel as welcomed as you typically would at a B & B though. The owners run the place and are very nice and accommodating. I called to let them know I might need to check in after 10 o'clock. Thomas simply said that he would leave the door unlocked with a key hidden behind the counter. He asked me to please lock the door behind me when I came in! It was like speaking to a long time friend only we had never even met! When I arrived at 9 (no traffic surprisingly), Karen was there to great me and new who I was immediately. She then gave us a room upgrade at no extra charge. This place was a scorching value as it was! The room was small but very nice and very comfortable. I would not have changed a thing. Everything was clean and seemed to be right in its place. The tiling in the bathroom was beautiful and looked to be very thoughtfully done. Not slapped in like a lot of chains tend to do. The entire place has just recently been remodeled and the quality and attention to detail is reflected throughout. Breakfast in the morning was pretty average but much appreciated, none the less; continental style in a small kitchen on the 2nd floor. There is a nice little terrace off the kitchen if you choose to eat outside. I wouldn't recommend it for nighttime, though, the lighting is far to bright to set any kind of bedtime mood. Checkout was very informal and pleasant; just a simple dropping off of the keys and a "So long, see you soon!" I love this area due to the fact that there are a ton of activities nearby. Hiking, biking, golf, cute towns and amazing views, waterfalls, and even a nice city like Portland just down the road. I will definitely be stay hear again soon! Thanks Thomas and Karen! Dan H.

Very pleasant stay. The hotel has personality, was clean & the continental breakfast had more than I expected. Enjoyed the ambiance of the fireplace and a long soak in the tub! The antique store down the road was great and we got our exercise exploring Lacamas State Park.

I came to the Camas Hotel on a business trip but I forgot all about business when I checked in. The room was cozy and perfectly comfortable--everything I needed was right there in the lovely armoire. The bed--OMG, I had this total Zen sleep experience, like I was coddled in a cloud. The bathroom tile work is beautiful and it was so nice to walk barefoot with no litter box. : ) Every little touch was just delightful from the warm welcome to the breakfast nook. I would come back on purpose just to explore the town and bike around.

I took my daughter on a mother/daughter getaway. Searched B&B sites for something in the Seattle - Portland area; and found the Camas hotel. Website gave a lot of good info, but not enough photos. Parking leaves a little to be desired, but it worked out fine. Our room was upgraded for free, due to low booking last weekend. That was really great. Bed was great, daughter loved the pillows. Decor is lovely. Plenty of towels. Had to go searching for the area where the continental breakfast was set out, but that was worth it. Very nice breakfast. And if it had been warmer, we would have been sitting out on the deck. I didn't bring any of mine, but I loved that this hotel is pet friendly. Made friends with a couple of dogs who were 'guests'. Enjoyed walking around the tiny downtown area, and dinner at a local mexican restaurant was just wonderful. Summary: Would definitely come back if I had a reason to go to a B&B. Absolutely worth the price. ~LM~ 2010-05-04

The hotel is beautifully remodeled with box-beam ceilings and exquisite tile work. Our high king size bed was firm and deliciously comfortable. The breakfast and breakfast-room need some work, but everything else was top notch. You can walk from the hotel to Lacamas Park - a wonderland of waterfalls, tall trees and wildflowers. The town is fun too - interesting shops, great restaurants and bars (Harwoods was really friendly). At dusk, we watched a flock of swifts spiral down a nearby chimney to roost for the night.

I grew up in Camas back in the day when it was a folksy, small town where everyone knew everyone. I come back for frequent visits and I love to stop at the Camas Hotel. Though the little town has changed with the times, the Camas Hotel still has the spirit of a small time Inn. The owners go out of their was to upgrade our room ( no cost) if they can, they make sure we are comfortable and they are willing to stop and chat if we have questions. Meanwhile the decor is beautiful, from a time before hurry, good taste, excellent beds, and clean, clean clean. The rooms are kind of small, but the beds aren't and it is fun to look over the streets of my home town from the little patio off the breakfast nook. A unique experience, for someone who hasn't been there and a nice place to return "home" to for someone who has.

Historic town center is leafy and walkable, clean, and with friendly local people. Hotel staff very helpful. All rooms are above the lobby and there is no elevator, so plan to carry bags up a stairway. The quality of the bed was excellent, the most comfortable we've ever had in this price range. Try Natalia's Cafe at the other end of the block---excellent American food with a few Russian specialties, such as cabbage rolls and apricot crumb cake. Yum! It is popular with locals and can be crowded on weekends. Parking is on the street and is easier to find after business hours.

Tom and Karen have truly done a wonderful job with the Camas Hotel. I live in Los Angeles, so a weekend in Camas was just what the doctor ordered. The hotel, the town and even the people are absolutely adorable. I went hiking, walked around the shops, ate (a lot!), but most of all I didn't want to leave the hotel. The beds are so comfortable! I plan on going back as soon as I can. Hopefully I can go during snowboarding season so I can stay at the Camas Hotel and just take a short drive to Mount Hood during the days for some snowboarding.

My wife and I stayed at the Camas hotel for a date night. The hotel is very charming and thoughtfully decorated. Note that "charm" does not mean broken or "quirky." Everything is very clean, works as well as a modern hotel but with the style and character of a bygone era. The beds are some of the coziest around! The stay was very relaxing and felt like a step back to a quieter, slower time. We will definitely be back for a longer stay.
