Skamania Lodge has got to be our favorite near-town escape! For the value though, I wouldn't recommend any more than the standard room. We've stayed in a fireplace riverview room and didn't find it worth the extra price.
I always try to get a package. The massage is great, and the outdoor hot tub is amazingly beautiful. We've been out in the hot tub in the snow....ah!
Dinner is nice, especially the Friday night seafood.
Pros: view, hot tub, near to town
Cons: , far for dinner only, parking is not great
