Good restaurants within easy walking distance. Great location if visiting GP Camas. Not very accessible fir older or handicapped visitors.
Unfortunately, as we are a historic hotel we do not have an elevator. However, our staff is always available to take your luggage to your room. We hope you enjoyed your stay and that you come and stay with us in the future.

Staff was wonderful, the location was perfect. The bed was a little on the hard side for my taste but the room was clean and comfortable.
Feel free to email us and let us know which room you stayed in so that we can access the bed as well! My personal favorite bed is Room 1! Nice comfy king! Try that room on your next stay! Thank you for feedback and hope to see you again!

This was a lovely hotel with tasteful updates. The bathroom in particular was lovely and bright. The location of the hotel is on a green thoroughfare with plenty of dining and shopping easily accessible. The breakfast atrium was also a treat.

This hotel is a little gem in the small but cute town of Camas, WA. All rooms are on the second and third floor of this older hotel which has been modernized yet remains charming. There are no elevators. The continental breakfast was average but fresh. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Try having a cocktail at the Birch St. Uptown Lounge, Mexican food at Nuestra Mesa and delicious continental cuisine at Feast at 316. All excellent and recommended by the hotel staff.
Thank you for your feedback! We're glad you enjoyed your experience, looking forward to your next stay!

Stayed here as a base to visit Columbia River Gorge and Portland. Loved the little town of Camas! Quiet and relaxing, great cafe and coffee shop close by. Room was cozy, very clean. Staff were very accomodating when asked to add an additional night stay. Only complaint and not really a complaint was the hardness of the mattress. Maybe just my age:) Loved the b & b feel and would love to stay here again!
Thank you for your kind review! We appreciate your feedback and will take it into consideration! We'll hopefully see you again soon!

I booked this months in advance, and I was warned in plenty of time. So, the inconvenience was, at least, partly my fault. The hotel warned me that the streets would be closed around the hotel for the local town fair. Since I thought the fair would be fun, we went anyway. We parked a block away and wheeled the luggage. The surprise was when we found NO ELEVATOR. The desk was quick to offer to carry the luggage up and then down so our stay was otherwise lovely in a period room with very nice amenities. Breakfast was outstanding in a lovely atrium on the second floor.

The room very very neat and decor was a nice blend between the old and new. It had a fresh look, but maintained the charm of the historical hotel. To my surprise the room was very quiet even with the activity of Camas Days going on down below. It was so nice walking through town visiting shops and even made new friends on a visit to the Birch Street Bar. I didn't experience or see on site dining or even any information or menu available in the room.
Good to hear your stay was enjoyable! We are looking at some changes regarding onsite dining, stay tuned! Watch us on facebook! Looking forward to your next stay!

This is a small building in a small town. It's right in the middle of a quaint ol town and is a well redone old hotel. IT HAS NO ELEVATOR. The staff was quick to volunteer to take our bags up and down stairs though. The room was small but nicely appointed as was the bath. No tub, but a nice room. Breakfast was lovely in a scouple cond look atrium and with delightfully different choices including muffins and scones.
Thank you for your feedback! Yes, those historic hotels are lacking on elevators, but staff always happy to assist with luggage! Looking forward to your next stay!

We stayed in Camas to be near my brother and family. This boutique hotel is special and inviting. The staff were wonderful and made our 3 nights seamless. Quite honestly, the only thing needing changed was the mattress. But, that is an easy fix. The breakfast offerings were more than we get at most places for free. The location in the absolute center of town was pure pleasure as we had access to wonderful coffee places and eating establishments. I would not hesitate to book this place the next time we are in town....thank you!
Wonderful! We'll have to look into that mattress as we are always prioritizing and upgrading the mattresses. Looking forward to that next stay!

We stayed at the Camas Hotel because we like historic inns. Room as lovely, bed very comfortable, breakfast delightful and the girls at the desk were very friendly and helpful. We ate at Feast316, a couple blocks away, and that was a real treat. Happy Hour Menu can't be beat!

We take advantage of their European rooms with shared bath and kitchen down the hall from our room. The rooms are cozy with amenities including a spacious sink, coffee, desk space, closet, etc. Great value, historical remodeled hotel in the center of charming Camas. We did not choose the breakfast options. Restaurants nearby.

Very cute hotel in the middle of Camas. Lots of dining around, and a short drive (barring traffic) to Portland. The hotel was clean and quaint. The room was unique and added to the small-town experience. The staff was incredible nice, and the breakfast was delicious. I would highly recommend staying at the Camas Hotel while in the area.

Traveled as a couple for special getaway and was not disappointed! The champagne for 2 was wonderful to add and was there for us at check-in. The room was large and the bathroom set was amazing with it's huge jacuzzi tub. Street views aren't bad and love the close waking proximity to the nearby eateries and brewery. Breakfast in the morning was above my expectations and included in our stay, as we're 2 free movie tickets for the theatre down the block. Bed was impeccable and the room was also supplied with microwave, iron with board in the closet and a Kureg coffee machine! There wasn't a bad thing to say about this place, and we want to return annually, at least! The only critique I could offer was corner cleaning, on stair ways and in the dining area there were quite a bit of cobwebbed dirt in the corners, but otherwise clean hotel. Loved it!

The Camas Hotel exceeded my expectations. It's located in an interesting and eclectic area with plenty of shops and eateries. The room, while small, was very efficient. Coffee maker, ironing board, and fridge in armoire. The bed was probably the most comfortable place I've ever slept. Breakfast was also a nice surprise. Quiche, granola, fresh berries, and other good nutritious options. The Camas is not a basic hotel and it was exactly what I was looking for. Can't wait to return to spend more time in the area.

We stayed two nights in early October. The staff was pleasant and very helpful in their investigations when I thought I'd lost something. The room and bed were comfortable and the breakfast room was very cute. We parked right across the street, but midweek it might be more difficult to find a spot. Easy walk to restaurants and the Safeway.

My husband and I absolutely loved this little hotel. The room was perfectly comfortable and clean and smelled great. The bathroom was AMAZING! The location of it was great, downtown Camas is adorable. We also thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant directly below the motel, called Miss Nola's Cafe. It had a wonderful atmosphere, spectacular food, and even better dessert! We loved the stay and will definitely stay again!

Quiet room on the main street of this lovely town. Loved everything about it but the climb with luggage to my room on the third floor. Didn't have the opportunity to eat breakfast there.

Our stay at the Camas Hotel was a unique experience. The hotel is quaint, and sets in a charming downtown area. While the hotel is a historical building, the rooms and bathrooms have been updated very nicely. We had AC, and the breakfast was served in an open atrium type area. The only downside was that there is no elevator, which could be a problem for some folks, however we had assistance from the staff to get our bags up and down the stairs. Because we were site seeing during the day, parking on the street was available and convenient in the evenings when we returned. Based on the night of the week of our stay, we were given free passes to attend the movies, at the theater just down the street. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

We had a wonderful stay at the Camas Hotel. So charming, great staff, and wonderful breakfast in the upstairs sunroom--quiche, fresh fruit, and lots of baked goods. The bed was so comfortable and the room was beautiful and old-world cozy. The hotel is located downtown in the heart of the historic district which is all well-kept and beautiful. Highly recommend, just don't be surprised by the large paper mill several blocks away. Other than when you drive or walk by it, you don't really know it is there.

We come here several times a year for the festivities this quaint little town offers. This weekend it was the summer antique faire. We can see the vendors setting up their wares from our window and after a nice continental breakfast we head out to the street. Never disappointing, this weekend get away was just what we needed!

I stay here everytime I'm in the area- love the main street ambiance. Enjoy the local movie theatre (i never get to go at home) love the farmer's market & the restaurant below, Miss Nola's was delicious! My check-in was super friendly, check-out was a luke-warm send-off though, associate must of been having a bad morning. See you in the fall!

The room was decorated beautifully but ours was on the street so you would hear street noise... but they provided you with ear plugs. Great value for your dollars compared to Portland prices but it is far... one day it took us over an hour to drive back from touring the city due to traffic. Parking for the Inn is over a block away... be prepared if it raining as the street parking can be busy. The Inns Keepers were a bit on the grumpy side... the check in and check out ladies. Loved the night manager - she was friendly. It wouldn't hurt to crack a smile or as we are leaving to ask about our stay or even talk at all. We stayed at 5 Inns on our whole Northwest Trip and this is the only only Inn where the Inns Keepers were not hospitable at all. They even made a comment about my paying on a 3rd party site (check in)... hint hint... I would not have found your Inn if it wasn't for the 3rd party site! Marketing equals sales! Don’t use one if you don’t want the sale and don’t complain to paying customers - awkward!!!
I'm sorry that you caught one of us on a bad day. We normally enjoy all our guests but we are jam-packed in the Summer and stretched to the limit. We've also been having some technical challenges recently which, while none of your concern, has raised the stress level. Please send us an email and I'll be happy to provide a credit towards a future stay. We are 15 minutes from the Portland Airport, and normally 1/2 hour to downtown Portland, but things do slow down at rush hour. We all sincerely hope that you will give us another try if you are in the area again. All our best wishes, Karen Hall Hotelier

Only stayed one night, but wish we had more time. The town is very charming and the hotel fits perfectly in a great location to stroll the streets looking at all the cool, old architecture, sculptures and lamp posts and flowers. Coffeeshops and breakfast restaurants abound in a couple of blocks. They had a perfect room with a pullout for my son. The quarters were a bit tight, but we only stayed there to sleep. I couldn't complain. The price was fantastic and the cleanliness and service fantastic! Worth a stop to be out of the city in a quieter, beautiful, historic location.
Thank you for your thoughtful review!

The Camas Hotel was beautiful on the inside and the outside. The rooms were gorgeous. We stayed in #3 which is the suite. The room was decorated in Victorian style with a nice bathroom with jacuzzi tub. We felt like we stayed in a luxurious 5-star hotel at a 2-star price. Definitely recommend staying in this hotel. The staff is very friendly and the tickets to the old downtown theater was a great bonus. (We saw Zootopia with beer and popcorn).

We recently vacationed in Camas and stayed at the Camas Hotel. I must say the hotel EXCEEDED our expectations on every level! The room had all the amenities one would need, a/c, the hotel and rooms were kept clean all the time and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The front desk clerk printed our boarding passes for us and also provided us information on what to see and do in the town. One of my favorite parts was enjoying the chocolate chip cookies that were in the lobby all day long! The hotel had a washer and dryer, which made it nice to get some of our laundry done before heading home. Part of our package included free movie tickets to the movie theater that's just under a block away from the hotel - which is a nice touch. Breakfast in the atrium was awesome; the atrium was lit up perfect and there was plenty of seats to just relax, eat and look out onto the town. Plus the staff was accommodating to other guests who requested gluten free items for breakfast. The town of Camas is just beautiful - lots to do and see; lakes, fishing, hiking, parks - you name it, Camas has it. Plus it's only about 15 minutes from Portland, which was great!. I could go on and on about the Camas Hotel, but I'm sure there's a character limit on this review. All I have to say is you should DEFINITELY stay here if you have a chance - you won't be disappointed at all!

I usually stay in chain hotels catering to the business traveler but when I can I try to support the local historic establishments. I stayed in room 128, which is a private bathroom. The bed was comfortable and the room nicely decorated. I had to put a piece of Kleenex in a light fixture (that was turned off) to keep the pieces from jangling. There was a generator or something that gently shook everything. It wasn't annoying after I fixed the sound. The hotel is in a great little downtown corridor. I was disappointed that breakfast didn't start until 7:30 on a Tuesday morning....but there was a coffee maker in the room.

Room was big and spacious with just enough furniture to be comfortable and give you plenty of open space. Restroom and shower were really nice and spacious with a whirlpool tub that worked fine. Desk staff was nice and friendly. Breakfast was basic but was just fine. Bagels, fruit and cold cereal to eat and coffee and tea to drink. I would definitely recommend to anybody staying in the area that doesn't need a big night scene or upscale dining options. We spent out days hiking in the Columbia River Gorge and were tired by the end of the day so this small quiet hotel was perfect for us.

Incredible boutique hotel reminiscent of European stays in a darling location. Downtown Camas is a gem and the Camas hotel sparkles as well. The owners think of everything to make your stay perfect, even lavender bath salts! Thank you for a lovely getaway.

My wife and I were in town for a friends wedding and found this place online. Their rates are great and the service you get for it knocks the value out of the park! The people who work there are phenomenal, the rooms are a little small, but very clean and comfortable, and the downtown area is nice for walking around! We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

Hotel was very nice. Room was ample size and bathroom was fine. When we arrived, the room was very warm but opened the window and it cooled down fairly quickly. The old heating in the hotel comes on occasionally from the boiler room. It can get warm. The continental breakfast is very good and gives the guest a wide choice of items. Camas Hotel is located very close to everything in town. I would recommend the hotel for a nice getaway night or weekend..

My wife and I found the historic Camas Hotel in 2014 while visiting my brother who lives just outside Camas. We love Camas's charming tree lined downtown. There are restaurants/pubs/home brews, a movie theatre and antique shopping and their hotel is smack dab in the middle of it. We had a terrific stay! We enjoyed the whole experience so much we treated our niece and nephew and their partners this Christmas when they were visiting my brother. The owners, Tom and Karen, provided a bottle of champagne for each on the special occasion, and were so concerned enough as to inquire what hour they might arrive so to make sure the icing of the champagne was in time. Tom and Karen are perfect hosts. Do stay, you'll love it.

My husband and I spent Thanksgiving weekend here. We were expecting a bed and breakfast, so were surprised to find ourselves in a pseudo-hotel type place. We didn't interact with the staff much, and only ate the continental breakfast once. Overall, we found Camas to be clean and quiet. The space was good for the price and we'd stay there again if we decide to head back to the Portland area.

The hotel is beautifully decorated and the staff is nice and welcoming. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom/shower down the hall was kept very clean. No problem at all.

We stayed at the Camas Hotel and found it to be charming and the bed very comfortable. We had a king size bed w/ bathroom. The bed was so and very relaxing, the staff was helpful and kind. Please note onsite dining was breakfast which included baked goods, juices, coffee and fruit. Breakfast was good but not a typical hot bnb breakfast. The surrounding neighborhood is quaint and has shops and restaurants just outside your door. Travel to Portland is about 15 - 20 minutes. The only complaint would be the ac, we had record heat while in Portland and the ac could have been better. However 95 degree heat is not typical for the area - so it may not be a valid issue for most travelers.

My wife and I live 30 miles down the road and wanted a quick getaway for our anniversary. This place was absolutely amazing. Great atmosphere and awesome staff. Make sure and see a movie at the Liberty Theatre and grab some craft beer at Caps n' Taps.

This a very charming hotel with added richness die to its history. They manage to almost seamlessly combine historical and contemporary elements to create a beautiful environment that is very comfortable and even soothing. Although our bathroom was across the hall it did not feel at all awkward and the bathroom itself was spacious and beautiful.
4.6 on August 08, 2015
Check in was very easy and staff was wonderful. Nice cookies and cold water in the lobby was a great little greeting. The two free movie tickets is a nice little treat since the theater is just down the street. Convenient location in the heart of town. Since we were checking out very early the next day, the staff made us a breakfast plate and put it in our room fridge. Our overall stay was wonderful and we would recommend the Camas Hotel to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

It's a sweet little hotel in a sweet little town, and it's only 1/2 hour drive to Portland. Given the size of the town, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and choices. The hotel room is "cozy" but we just needed a place to sleep. The quality of the breakfast was very good.

As we finished our drive from Portland to Hood River, with many stops on the way, we ended our day of exploration at the Camas Hotel. Great place to stay, loved the quaintness of the room, but don't bother with the "breakfast", go across the street for real coffee and pastries. The price is good enough without the "breakfast"! I'm guessing the only reason they offer it is to be considered a B & B.

The hotel staff were great, very helpful. The hotel and our room were all in excellent condition, very well maintained with a luxury atmosphere. The room was spotless, with very complete amenities. The downtown is lovely, quaint without being pretentious, clearly a rare gem of a small town that is thriving with residents that care deeply about where they live. We loved it here and would definitely recommend and come back!

Had the smallest en-suite room and it was great for one; could be fine for two if not planning to be in the room much. The location is fabulous if you want to be right across from espresso, a brew pub, and nice old movie theatre. I would consider it a good weekend getaway in a quaint downtown; low key and quiet with a touch of elegance. I did not use the breakfast service, so I cannot say it is bad; it didn't look like a full breakfast, so I just went out. For coffee first thing, there was a pod machine in the room, with a couple of choices, just fine for a first jolt. The breakfast area was nice and open. I can see it working for a family very well especially since it is included with the room rate. So take my "below average" with a grain of salt here: context, picky single person looking to match the elegance of everything else with just a different style breakfast.

Upon arrival they saw we had lots of baggage so they upgraded us to a bigger room on the spot, which was great. They accepted multiple packages from us prior to arrival without any problem. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would stay there again. Connected dining option we did not try, but there are several within walking distance we did eat at.

Very clean room with a cozy feel to it. Thought the detached bathroom would be a problem, but it worked out great and they were kept neat and tidy as well. Perfect location in the heart of Camas. Plenty of places to eat nearby. Would definitely stay there again.

We had four rooms for our family that was in town for our sons graduation. The rooms are great. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Continental breakfast was good. My family enjoyed being right in Camas.

After searching for many hotels in Portland, I decided to give the Camas Hotel a try. 30 minutes from down town Portland, and close to the Columbia River gorge. First off, I want to know what mattress they use because it's the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept in. The room was clean, quiet, and cozy. Service was very helpful with local "to do's" and the theatre, while dated, was pretty nice. If I'm ever in the area again, I will gladly stay there.
4.2 on May 20, 2015
We had room 10 which had it's own bathroom. It was a sweet room. It was small but that is to be expected in a historic hotel. There were 3 adults in our party and a toddler, but the sleeper sofa made it work! We enjoyed the breakfast and the staff was friendly. if you find yourself In Camas, stay here!
3.8 on May 18, 2015
Room was fantastic. Very nice, clean, soft bed, plenty of covers. Was a bit pricey but well worth it. We got room 28, which had its own bathroom. Breakfast was an good continental type, but a little lackluster. I would still stay there again. Breakfast at Natalia's on the corner was excellent, and dinner at Harvest was great. Our room was extremely quiet. Can't even say how much I appreciated that!!

What a fabulous find! I cannot say enough great things about this little hotel: wonderful location, beautifully appointed rooms, comfortable bed, delicious breakfast! PERFECT! will definitely be back!
3.8 on April 15, 2015
We really enjoyed our stay. The Hotel was very nice and well updated yet maintaining the old feel. Breakfast was great with fresh fruit, pastry type things, yogurt and granola. I like that they didn't go cheap on food - blue berries and strawberries, good yogurt not cheap stuff - the details make a difference. The staff was very friendly and helpful and ready to do what ever they could to make our stay pleasant. My only complaints: House Keeping made the bed but didn't take away dirty cups and glasses etc. Small detail, but we had to go downstairs and ask for new ones more than once. Secondly, it was a bit noisy. Its not their fault but it seems trash collection, recycling collection, etc, were all scheduled for different mornings so each day brought a new unexpected sound. To their credit they provided ear plugs (NICE TOUCH!). Despite these, I would totally stay here again.
4.2 on April 13, 2015
My husband and I stayed a night here without kids. It was very affordable and in a cute area. We stayed on a Thursday night, and there were signs saying there was street cleaning Friday morning, which did wake us up at 5:30 a.m. So just don't stay on a Thursday night. You can hear everything through the Windows.

We were on a business trip. Lovely Inn. The hotel has easy access to Portland airport, and downtown Portland. Christi the GM at the hotel is wonderful. She makes sure all her guest needs are met. She makes the hotel a 5 star! FYI. There is no on site dining. Linda Annapolis, Maryland.
Thank you for your thoughtful review. I am happy to hear that Christi made you feel welcome and attended too. I do need to point out that there actually is a restaurant onsite at the Camas Hotel. The entrance to Harvest is just outside our front door. They are in the building, although not connected directly to our lobby. Perhaps you missed them, but Harvest is open for lunch and dinner every day except Monday. We hope that you will have the chance to try them out on your next visit. Best wishes, Karen Hall Hotelier

I was very pleased with the accommodations and quality of the room and amenities. Lots of old time charm and style, we could all use a little more of both in this time of cell phones and e-mail, Facebook and all the other communications that make us forget to slow down an enjoy the moment.

The Camas Hotel does have an old world European hotel charm, friendly staff, small quirky rooms, but still quite pleasant. Room 6 has a very small queen, with the bathroom sink in the room. The honeymoon suite, room #3, has one of those weird showers over a Jacuzzi tub. Room #2 was a bit better. A nice breakfast each morning, a bit more than a continental breakfast.

My husband and I stayed here after a wedding. Everything was perfect. (we were in room 3) 1. Free offstreet parking up the block 2. We were personally shown to our room upon check-in and got a little orientation to the room and the available amenities 3.The room was beautifully decorated and clean 4. The bed was very comfortable; my husband and I both slept very well even though we usually like different firmness 5. The windows open and the air condition works well, making climate control easy 6. Great water pressure in the very large Jacuzzi tub and shower combo 7. Our windows faced the main street, but there was no street noise, even with the windows open 8. The room had a microwave, mini fridge, flat screen tv, keurig with coffee and tea pods, toiletries including makeup removal wipes 9. We needed toothpaste and a shower cap, they were out of them but went to the store and bought both for us, which was wonderful 10. The breakfast was delicious! Pastries, fresh sliced melon and berries, bagels, English muffins, babybel cheese, Tillamook yogurt, juice, coffee, tea, cold cereal, oatmeal, and quiche 11. The bath robes were luxurious, and they have a price list in the room if you want to take things from the room home with you (from the robes and linens, to decorations and books) Start to finish, we had a wonderful time and wish we could have stayed another night

I had a nice room (#7) except... I noticed ear plugs, left near the soap and shampoos when I entered my room. I assumed it was left by the previous occupants (wrong!). Each night I was woken up (three or four times) by loud banging noises. It was the old boiler system, making what sounded like "metal pipes being hit by other metal pipes". On the third/last night of my stay, I ran the A/C fan continuously, hoping it would drown out the boiler piping noises (it didn't). Also, the stench of people smoking in the alley next to my room was brought in through the A/C. I suggest that they replace the A/C units with heat pumps and then abandon the boiler, or only use it during the day time and only when it's really cold. Sorry, but I don't think I would opt to stay there again, unfortunately.

The hotel was exactly what we expected. The room was very comfortable and I fell in love with the jetted tub! The service was wonderful and very accommodating. The breakfast was very good- the dining area was so cute and the quiche was delicious! Thank you for the perfect overnight getaway

Good value and the staff are lovely. This is a beautiful heritage building so be prepared for the quirky noises that come with staying in such a place. Make sure you ask for a room facing 4th Ave. If you enjoy the boutique heritage hotel experience this place is for you. Camas is great little town. Have a meal at Los Jalapenos!!!!

Our cozy room had a king size bed with nice linens. There were several quality touches in addition, like the selection of toiletries, good coffee, quiche and fresh fruit for breakfast. Our room was very clean and nicely decorated. The hotel is in a quiet location and a great stopover between Portland/Vancouver and the Columbia Gorge.
4.6 on December 14, 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at your Camas Hotel. Bed was king sized and comfortable, and the bathroom appears to have been upgraded. Your staff were particularly friendly and helpful. Our stay reminded us of several bed and breakfast places we have stayed in around Europe. When we return to Camas we will book your hotel again.

I was in for a pleasant surprise when I needed to book a last minute local overnite stay. Although I had often stayed at some of those 'other' local chain hotels, when I GOOGLED 'CAMAS HOTEL' I was happy to find out how reasonably priced it was. That was the first plus. The reception staff was professional and friendly, the room was smartly designed, clean and comfortable with a roomy shower. The option for a free movie tix to the ecclectic movie theater just a few doors down, was a nice touch. The HARVEST restaurant next door is indescribably delicious. After a great nights sleep, nice mattress and comfortable pillows, I was thrilled to be able to enjoy an AMAZING Continental Breakfast...great coffee, fresh blueberries, tasty quiche, pastries and all. Classy, sassy and artistic...a most enjoyable stay. I will definitely book again and spread the word. ¿¿
3.4 on December 04, 2014
We were greeted warmly. The room was lovely and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The gold doors were a great added touch. The bathroom was clean and large and private. There were coffee cups and a Keurig coffee maker. There were wine glasses but no drinking glasses, which I would have liked in the room. It was very quiet because it was Thanksgiving night. I would return again, but only if I could have the private bath & toilet option. The dining option is next door but it wasn't open either in the evening or the next morning. We left around 10:30 a.m. and would have liked to have breakfast before heading home.
4.2 on November 30, 2014
Our small room was very well designed and absolutely spotless. Great location and very friendly staff - available but not overbearing. The room was too warm for us, so we ran the fan all night (in November!) - and the thin walls allowed us to hear too much from the neighboring room. Tho we rarely partake of hotel breakfasts, the spread was quite satisfying. We ate at the excellent restaurant just next door.

Very comforting stay. We will stay again and look forward to it.

I needed a place to stay for a couple of nights while I was at a conference in Stevenson, WA and happened upon this place while looking for hotels. I stayed in one of the small individual rooms and it was perfect for my needs. I thought the hotel was charming and my room was super cute and had everything I needed (Keurig coffee maker in the room). It's European style bathrooms for some of the rooms (like mine), but I didn't have any problems with that and never had to wait for the bathroom. The bathroom was kept very clean and well supplied. There was also a little kitchenette available (I didn't need it or use it, but it was cute). No elevator, so bear that in mind if you have any issues with mobility. The hotel itself is in a cute little location and I felt very safe. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again if in the area. Great value (I much preferred staying here then staying in one of the chain hotels) and lots of charm! Thank you!

After a beer at Mill City Brewing, we asked about a place to stay in Camas. They recommended the Camas Hotel and pointed it out across the street. We were given a tour of this 103 year old jewel and decided to make it the hub of our staycation! Staff was very courteous and helpful. The hotel was immaculate in every respect... even the detached baths on the third floor. The rooms were comfortably appointed We did not have breakfast in the hotel, but the atrium was bright and cheerful. All in all, a great stay, with wonderful food and drink in the town.
4.6 on October 17, 2014
This was our 8th day on the road and we found the Camas Hotel to be very charming in the center of an old paper mill town. The parking was a bit if a walk, however it was free! The breakfast the next morning was plentiful and the perfect start to hike Mt. Saint Helens.

Such a sweet quaint boutique style hotel in the perfect little setting. Cute part of Camas. The Camas Hotel sits right next to a great little restaurant where we were able to eat outside and get great food called Harvest I think. The service at the hotel was wonderful. The only drawback for us was that there was no elevator. My husband had a knee injury and an elevator would have been nice. The room was clean and comfortable. It reminded me of a european style pension. The continental breakfast was done very well. Lots of variety. We wold definitely stay here again.
4.6 on September 12, 2014
My family chose this hotel in Camas for our weekend visit to Washington - very sweet and comfortable - Small but well appointed rooms, comfy beds and delicious bedding. The breakfast in the light-filled atrium was simple and healthy - I particularly enjoyed the quiches. Camas is a quiet town with a few good shops and restaurants - and surrounded by wonderful outdoor beauty.

The hotel is everything my wife and I expected. The moment we arrived at 9:30pm we were happily greeted by the desk clerk, who would have gladly had someone help us with our luggage up one flight of stairs to our delightful room if I had not wanted the challenge. Our room, #6, is very conveniently situated directly across from the beautiful breakfast room with a lovely view of the superbly restored downtown that you should take a couple of hours to tour the shops in the morning before you depart town, especially the huge antique mall just down the block.. One must remember that very old hotels have small rooms. Even so, our room was easy for the two of us to navigate without bumping into each other. Our air conditioned room is very comfortable and the bathroom is modern. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, from the warm quiche, fresh pastries, outstanding coffee, tea, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals and choice of two morning papers, As the other guests arrived for breakfast we all were courteous to greet each other with a smile and a "Good Morning!" After a leisurely breakfast we timed our departure for 10am when the shops opened. A perfect day -- a perfect stay.
3.4 on September 01, 2014
The rooms were a little smaller than I expected, but very nice and very clean. The staff at the counter was mostly friendly, but maybe she'd just had a long day. The detached bathrooms were kept very clean, and the showers are huge! As for dinning, we went to the restaurant next to the hotel (Camas Harvest), and it was quite delicious, albeit pretty expensive. The weekend we went was also really quiet, which was nice, but it was also hot. The hotel doesn't seem to be air conditioned, so if that's a problem for you then you shouldn't go. Otherwise, we had a very pleasant stay and hope to return soon.

This was a delightful stay. Downtown Camas is very quaint and has everything you would ever need from restaurants to yoga studios, movie theater etc. The hotel was very clean and we really felt comfortable. We had to share the bathrooms out in the hallway but they were very clean and there was plenty of privacy. I would skip the breakfast that they offer and make your own in the kitchen. There is a Safeway within walking distance where you can do some food shopping. A really great place to stay when you are in Portland. Only about 25 minute drive to downtown Portland.

We really liked the hotel but the room was very small for four people and we expected two double beds not a double and a fold out bed, Had to ask for extra bedding for the fold out bed, All the special touches in room were nice and all was very clean except for the coffee pot had not been cleaned out from the previous guest. Breakfast room and breakfast very nice.
We apologize for the coffeemaker. The Good news is that we are switching to Keurig Coffeemakers which are easier to manage, with no grounds to worry about. It is true that our 103 year old hotel has smaller rooms than modern chain hotels. We do not have rooms with 2 Queen beds. Most rooms have just one bed, and we have one with bed plus foldout sofa (new mattress) and one King that can convert to 2 twins. We also have some foldout cots that can work for young people in certain rooms. Our strength is in charm, location, and amenities, not so much large size room. Very sorry to disappoint. visit our website for detail room photos and room information: www.camashotel.com.

See French below. One of the best feature of this place is the coziness, quietness and the Euro feeling. There were babies on my floor and though we all know what it mean for a young mother(getting up multiple time a night), at no time did I heard them. Each time I went (third time so far) it still was fresh to come in, lot of calm. Now, being gluten free always was a challenge to travel and they never failed me even when being gluten free was an oddity and not as popular as it is today. I really would recommend. Je recommande. L'endroit est calme et pourvoit au besoin meme des personnes avec des dietes speciales comme mon mari et moi (sans gluten). L'ambiance europ/enne et le calme de l'endroit sont ressourcante. Vaut son pesant d'or.

What a little gem in the heart of a historic and charming city! Everything about the Camas Hotel was special including the owner, staff, rooms with all the amenities (bathrobes too), breakfast and free tickets to the the theater right down the block. We arrived at 7:00PM and watched The Chef at 8:00 which completed our day with big smiles. We would love to return again as this is the perfect location for visiting the Columbia River Gorge area with wineries and beautiful scenery. We also rafted dwon the White Salmon with Wet Planet Rafting which was fantastic. Thank you for a great experience and stay!

This is a great historic hotel and fun to stay in. The staff is great. My wife left a sweater and they took the time to call us and offered to mail it to us to our home in California! I doubt you could get better service anywhere. The rooms, as you might expect, are small. Some of the larger ones are fine, but you'll be cramped in the smaller ones - but the charm outweighs the deficit of size. And the beds are super comfortable. We slept very well, although you will here noise from adjoining rooms. Now the real negative: the breakfast - some fruit, some pastries and bagels, yogurt, juice and coffee (the coffee was quite good). But get there in the first half hour or you won't get much. Also, in hot weather, it's uncomfortable in the atrium. This is a great place to experience for one or two nights, especially the historic nature and the downtown location, but not for any length of time. Dennis G.

Myself and two friends stayed July 3rd and 4th. A lovely hotel. Nearly all the shops in around the area were closed for the holiday so we were disappointed not to be able to enjoy them. A good reason to come back again one day.

The hotel's location, service, rooms, cleanliness and styling are upscale but the breakfast leaves a lot to be desired. The quality of the breakfast is below standard compared the quality of the hotel. I would come back please raise the breakfast standard from a 1 star to a 4 star since in my opinion your hotel, service and location is 5 star. The on street parking does not bother me but it would be nice if you could talk to the city about giving your guests special parking permits.

The breakfast was wonderful featuring quiche, danish, muffins, coffee, juice and all kinds of cereals. We absolutely loved the variety. There is even a dog park around the corner. The hotel staff is helpful and courteous. The coffee pot broke in our room and it was fixed within hours. Kudos to the hotel's handyman. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

Scheduled a one night stay after picking up hubby from Portland Airport. Pleasantly surprised at how great the hotel and staff were. In one corner of the hotel is an independent restaurant called Harvest. Amazingly unique food from unique ingredient parings. Order the cheesecake for dessert - it's a work of art in addition to a tasty treat! Hotel is right downtown in Camas, just a short walk for various eateries and brew. We will definitely go back to stay longer. Great job Camas Hotel!

Every year I travel to the Northwest from South Carolina to visit friends and family. I stay at the Camas Hotel because I love the location and everything about the Hotel. There are many bars and restaurants in downtown Camas. The staff and service are great. The second floor rooms have a coffee maker, TV, refrigerator, desk and bathroom. Breakfast is included in the room rate. If you want something more substantial Cafe Natalia and Harvest are just steps away. Portland International Airport is just 15 minutes away. (May take longer during commute times). You have easy access to the beautiful Columbia River Gorge and the drive on the Washington side of the river is so much more scenic than I-84 on the Oregon side. There are no elevators in the hotel. The rooms are small by "modern" hotel standards. If you are looking for a nice place to stay that is not like every other chain hotel stay here.

Completely on whim, we chose the Camas Hotel for our 20th wedding anniversary getaway. We'd expected it to be an adequate, reasonably priced place to sleep, and not too far from Portland (our original destination). This utterly charming hotel was so comfortable and quiet that we spent nearly the whole time in our room (and never actually made it to Portland). If I could have taken the whole room home with me, I would have done. The bed was the most comfortable I've slept in. The linens were top quality. The complementary continental breakfast by far and away exceed our expectations. Real quiche! Delicious coffee! Actual ripe melon and berries! I could not write this review without mentioning Harvest, the restaurant that shares the hotel's first floor. The New Year's Eve dinner was superb. We might not have chosen Harvest but for the hotel owner's recommendation. A wonderful weekend. We will be back!

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.

Lovely hotel with every attention to detail. I am very picky and chose this hotel based on previous reviews. It was well represented and immaculate. The room we had was small, but charming. Highly recommend Twilight Pizza just down the main street. We will be back.

We had one of the third floor rooms--no bath, but a sink. Rooms were clean and well-appointed and though small, included two chairs and a table. As well, dishes etc. were provided to use in the nearby kitchen/microwave, and there was also a refrigerator in the room. Street was quiet--a holiday weekend. Only drawback is other lodgers closing their doors too loudly in the early morning--there are a lot of doors and it's wood against wood, and unfortunately our neighbors weren't as considerate as they could have been. Price was good for accommodations. Couldn't get TV to work, but not a big deal in our situation. Historic hotel nicely restored.

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.

We loved this hotel, rooms were super cute and contemporary. They were just redone. The owners were very nice. Breakfast was good, it's served in a mostly glass room. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

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!
4.6 on September 26, 2013
Immaculate, beautifully appointed rooms in a great location. Lots to see and visit within walking distance. We were pleasantly surprised to receive movie tickets when we registered. Appreciate that our one-night stay was so graciously accommodated. Dinner at HARVEST was outstanding. We'll be back and definitely recommend this lovely place to our friends and family...thanks!

We came in from Oregon to visit friends. This hotel (queen room) was perfect for my husband and I. A friendly staff and very clean, nicely decorated room awaited us. Breakfast was good the next morning and it is served in a bright and pretty Atrium. The bed was VERY comfy and little amenities were perfect. Would stay again (and will) in a heartbeat.
4.6 on September 23, 2013
Enjoyed our stay at this charming boutique hotel. Conveniently located in the downtown area where we could walk to a few small shops and restaurants. Clean comfortable room that was nicely decorated.

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.
5 on September 10, 2013
Clean, comfortable, good customer service, delicious & healthy (free) breakfast, quiet, close to everything (including airport)! Will definitely stay here again! Definitely recommend for all sorts of travellers! We loved our stay at The Camas Hotel!

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.
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.

Rooms are so nice and thoughtfully appointed! Felt like I was in a French walled city in Provence... :-) "Harvest" was bit of a disappointment based upon expectations after reading the reviews. Hopefully it will continue to grow and improve up to the level of the hotel. Look forward to another visit!

The Camas Hotel is a well-appointed, very comfortable historic inn nestled on a tree-lined main street in a delightful town! We stayed four nights, using it as our base to explore Portland area and the Columbia River Gorge. We enjoyed great dining in Camas, including Harvest, Natalia's Cafe, and K'Syrah. We'll be back.

second stay..this one was for our anniversary trip..beautiful room with amenities, jetted tub and shower, and double vanity with commode in separate room..champagne and red roses and chocolate were set out to greet us! staff was very helpful and informed.Lots of extra little touches that impressed me..sheets were even lightly scented! Breakfast in the atrium was great! Dinner at Harvest was awesome and affordable! few doors down was a spa and there were quaint shops all around..Wonderful place to stay!

Booked last minute, later in the evening. Room was clean and staff was great.
3.4 on August 13, 2013
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. Otherwise very cute and staff was nice. Dining was only rated low due to not having the option to say n/a on the survey. We did not done at the hotel

I was pleasantly surprised by the decor and ambiance at the Camas Hotel. I was only in town for 24 hours, a last minute booking, but couldn't have been more pleased, They have captured the feel of a little Parisian hotel perfectly. Also I think it was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in away from home.. Great!
5 on August 03, 2013
This beautiful boutique hotel (bed and breakfast) was a pleasant surprise on our Pacific Northwest trip. Every aspect of our stay was just perfect from start to finish. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The facility, rooms and decor was very professionally appointed and decorated. It was like being in a Pottery Barn catalog. The bed and bedding was luxurious. The adjoining restaurant was great. We also enjoyed the great shops on the adorable streets just outside the door of the hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Loved the stay! Super style with a homey feel. Definitely coming back next year!

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.
3.8 on July 30, 2013
I loved staying in a historic building. Breakfast was wonderful with great coffee. We had a king room with a full bathroom so we could have a tub for my grandson and I. The room was beautiful but very crowded with the child bed. Very friendly staff and helpful. Several good restaurants nearby. Cute town. No kids store. We had a wonderful time!
5 on July 29, 2013
Absolutely love this hotel! It was the perfect place to stay and the perfect location for day trips throughout the area without the hassle of city traffic. Loved being able to sleep with the window open! Breakfast was fabulous. We could not have asked for a better accommodation.
3.8 on July 29, 2013
Will stay here again. It's a bit of a drive to downtown Portland from here, but if you leave after the morning rush, it's a rather pleasant drive, with wonderful views of the Columbia and Mt. Hood. Hotel was quiet and clean and comfortable.

Charming hotel in quaint little town. Close enough to Portland for all the sights there and an easy 15 minute from from the airport. Clean rooms with clean and simple decor. Lovely breakfast room. We even had a "picnic" dinner in this room one evening. Would stay here again and recommend it to family and friend visiting the area.

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!
4.6 on July 26, 2013
Camas is a charming town to stay if you want to find a slow pace and friendly people. Plenty of places to eat and some charming boutique stores make this a good experience. The Camas Hotel was a really neat place to stay. Access to Portland and to Mt. Hood is very easy. I would definitely stay here again.

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.
4.2 on July 15, 2013
Nicely designed and conveniently located. A perfect getaway.
4.6 on July 15, 2013
My only wish was we stayed more than one night. Camas was a stop on the way from Seattle to Portland- it is a hidden gem. Super cute Main Street, the hotel was very nice and comfortable. Plus only 15 minutes from Downtown Portland. We will definitely be back! The cost was below what we paid for chain hotels- and had nothing but charm.

Is perfect for a romantic and intimate retreat from the crazy world!
2.2 on July 03, 2013
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.
5 on July 01, 2013
Everything was great including the friendly person who checked us in... and the breakfast room was sunny and included a variety of good food.

We had a sweet little visit to Camas, which we used as a base to attend some functions in Portland. Easy to get into Portland from there. Camas is very cute and the hotel is nicely appointed and a good value. We'd stay again.

I instantly fell in love with this sweet little B&B. the staff was very friendly and the room was perfect. The attention to detail was flawless and this place certainly has a lot of character. The bed was so comfortable we wanted to just stay in all day. Not to mention camus is a great little town for antique stores and unique restaurants. We will definitely stay again!
4.2 on June 05, 2013
The room and bathroom were outstandingly clean, the furnishings were nice, the bed was completely comfortable, the staff was especially helpful, the breakfast was better than average, the breakfast room is light and very pleasant, the movie tickets are a nice touch. My only complaint with the room is that there was only one chair (and there were two people). We would definitely stay there again. Camas itself is a charming little town, and it's a gateway to the beautiful Columbia Gorge area.

Getaway surprise and it was better than I ever thought! A must stay!!!

This quaint "boutique hotel" was a lovely spot for a weekend getaway! Our room was beautifully decorated and super clean. The bed was comfy and the room is decorated so nicely. It felt more like a home than a hotel! The sunroom where breakfast is offered is delightful (though a little cold - temperature, not atmosphere!) Downtown Camas is small but you can spend hours roaming through the unique shops and searching for antiques! I would definately stay here again and recommend it highly!

What a lovely place to stay. We loved everything about our stay. Will recommend this hotel and plan to return again.

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.
4.8 on March 14, 2013
The rooms are small, but very comfortable and outstandingly clean. We especially enjoy the atrium room; we've met friendly people there at breakfast each time we've stayed. We heartily recommend the Camas! (I had to rate the "Dining" in order to post this, but we didn't actually have time to eat at the Harvest- unfortunately, since it smelled lovely!)
4.4 on March 14, 2013
We stayed 3 nights and had a fabulous stay. We were in a room with a private bath and it was very accommodating, perfectly clean, and the bath products were awesome! The view out the window was over the street shops. The bed was the softest bed I have ever slept in and I absolutely LOVED it! The staff was helpful and friendly. There was a nice assortment of breakfast items every morning and the cafe/atrium had a glass roof, very nice place to sit for breakfast and start the day. This was a lovely place to stay, I highly recommend it.

My husband & I happened upon the Camas Hotel when browsing the internet. We stayed there for two nights. Cozy, well-appointed room; nice self-serve breakfast w/quite an array of options; and the wonders of the Columbia Gorge are just a short drive away. We definitely plan to return!
4.6 on March 06, 2013
This was an excellent place to stay! The people were friendly, the room was beautiful and it was within walking distance of a variety of unique and fun shops. The first Friday included shops open late and many people milling around. It is on our "stay again" list!

I stayed for two nights over the 2012 Christmas weekend while I was in town visiting family. I booked a room with a full-size bed, but when I checked in late, I found that I had been given a king room. The room was pretty small and the bed was quite large, of course, but the room was nicely decorated, charming and comfortable. The bathroom was fairly large. It was quiet and cozy. I didn't spend much time in the hotel, just came to sleep, but it was a lovely escape from an over-crowded house!
4.2 on January 06, 2013
My husband and I stayed for one night - on New Year's Eve. Our room was comfortable and quiet, bed was soft and comfy. There was lots of hot water readily available (nice long, hot shower!) The Camas Hotel is a bit old-fashioned - but we enjoyed our stay, and plan to return if we're passing through Camas again.
4.4 on December 27, 2012
My husband and I booked an impromptu overnight stay here right before Christmas and enjoyed our stay very much. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was simple but pleasant. The room itself had lovely furnishings and though small had so much more character and homeyness than a bigger hotel would have. 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.
4.2 on December 14, 2012
We stayed at this hotel for two nights and three days. This hotel was amazing, quaint and relaxing. We enjoyed just the right size room and perfect amenities. The only key problem was parking, which was located up the hill. It's a little hard for luggage but it worked. My boyfriend and I are planning to come back every anniversary. This is the best place.

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!

It is the little things that count..........fine teas in the room, quality soaps and lotions, earplugs, great pastries and quiche for breakfast. This place is a keeper!

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.

An excellent value in a small town. Easy trip into Portland for travelers.

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.

My wife and I had a wonderful time in this quaint hometown spot. Friendly and receptive the proprietors are ready to meet all your needs. They've done a wonderful job making this a spot for either a romantic evening or a great stop along the Columbia River. I think you will love your stay and great breakfast while getting to know the town of Camas.

What a find!!!! The Camas Hotel has a very European feel with competitive cost. Tastefully decorated. Very clean and well appointed rooms with many amenities including free wi-fi, spa bath products, flat screen TVs. Continental breakfast was more than ample, fresh and tasty. Innkeeper very knowledgeable about area attractions and dining. THANK YOU for what felt like vacation! :) Super family friendly, too!

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.

My husband and I stayed at the Camas Hotel the night of our wedding. It has an art deco feel. The big bed was fun, the bath with it's checked tiles very retro. There were many sweet personal touches. The breakfast on Sunday morning was really tasty; the rooftop patio was quiet and intimate. Camas is a quaint little town, a perfect place to stay!

We loved the room decor and the beds were heavenly, staff courteous, and the innkeepersTom & Karen very kind and helpful. We plan to tell all our friends about the place. We look forward to coming again and enjoying the soon to open restaurant.
