The Waucoma Hotel is a historic hotel building in Hood River, Oregon, United States.[1]

The hotel was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981.[2]

The hotel was remodeled and reopened in 1910 as the Hotel Oregon, as is pointed out in the original documentation. It is now understood that the name "Hotel Oregon" was in use until the hotel closed in 1973.

Location: Second Street at Cascade Avenue 

...was opened as the Waucoma Hotel in 1904. 

The hotel was remodeled and reopened in 1910 as the Hotel Oregon, as is pointed out in the original documentation. It is now understood that the name "Hotel Oregon" was in use until the hotel closed in 1973. The historic view submitted with the National Register nomination form in 1981 shows the hotel's roof-top sign which read "Hotel Oregon." Because the listed property was known as the Hotel Oregon for 63 years, longer by far than it was known by the more recent and transitory name of Hood River Hotel, we recommend the designated cannon name be changed from Hood River Hotel to Hotel Oregon. A further justification for changing the common name of the building is to avoid confusion with a new hotel operation in the community which has adopted the name "Hood River Hotel."
