​Sylvie and Scott’s Travel Blog - Ditch the Map

We arrived in Camas, Washington in the evening and were immediately delighted by the quaint downtown. Here we found the well-maintained tree-lined streets aglow with soft rope-lights. We intended for Camas to be our home base while exploring Portland, only a 25-minute drive away. However, Camas quickly charmed us in its own right offering curb appeal, a diversity of restaurants and brewpubs and ease of walkability.

Our Lodging at Camas Hotel

​The historic Camas Hotel sits proudly on the corner of main street right in the middle of downtown.  We were greeted by the friendly hotel staff, offered a coupon booklet with local deals and a parking pass valid for free parking in their guest lot. ​The Camas Hotel conveniently offers rooms for all budgets. We tried both the European style bedroom and en-suite bedroom during our stay.  Both rooms were clean and comfortable with coffee, seating areas, and thoughtful small touches highlighting the history of the area. Each floor of the hotel features a community kitchenette stocked with kitchen basics for those looking to prep their own food.
​European Style Bedroom

The European style room made us nostalgic for our travels in Europe where sharing a bathroom is a perfectly acceptable and sustainable practice. The European style rooms, sans bathroom, boast their own vanity sinks, so brushing your teeth and washing your face can done in the privacy of your own room. There are two spacious communal bathrooms on each floor, each containing a shower, sink, and toilet. We found the bathrooms clean and inviting. Not once did we experience a wait. 
Shared Bathroom
​Ensuite Bedroom

Our ensuite bedroom was charming with that quintessential boutique hotel feel. While having our own bathroom initially sounded convenient, after our hassle-free experience using the communal bathrooms, we found the private bathroom to be superfluous. For those planning to spend the bulk of their days getting out and exploring Camas and Portland the absence of a private bathroom will largely go unnoticed!
Continental ​Breakfast

Continental breakfast was served each morning in the sunny second floor atrium. The tasty breakfast spread includes cereals, fruits, eggs, yogurt, toast, pastries, juice, coffee, and teas. Over coffee we chatted with friendly guests who remarked on their pleasant stay.
