Our second visit in five years and we enjoyed it both time so it is repeatable. A very interesting historical building repurposed for modern use. Very spacious room with excellent decor and furnishings. Very quiet. On site bar and restaurant. We enjoyed the bar but the breakfast fell short in service and food quality. Excellent downtown location with easy walk... More

Ate here tonight. Two couples. Told server we wanted separate checks right away. We were there at Happy Hour and ordered off that menu. Mostly food okay. I had Cheeseburger mini and meat was a hockey puck to eat. Problem. Bill arrived. Not two bills. Asked server for separate checks. Then we noticed we were charged 10 dollars for a... More

The staff is very friendly. The service and food are fantastic. And the hotel is comfortable. In the heart of down town Bend you are blocks from most anything you may want to do, if you feel you need to leave the property.

We walked around the property and like other McMenamin's it had all the cute patios, soaking pools etc. The rooms looked spacious and fun. We were there early in the day so missed out on seeing some of the areas that open at 3. The front desk gal was nice and helpful. The big drawback was the pub. We waited... More

Most McMenamins properties are like theme parks for adults and this one doesn't disappoint. Fun, fun, fun! It's very centrally located but I could see spending an entire day and a half on site. What more do you need than 3 restaurant/pubs, a movie theater and soaking pool! Rooms are dark but in character with the lodge-like style of the... More

The property is quirky like several other of the McMenamins properties. The location is good and an easy walk to downtown restaurant, bars and shops. The onsite amenities - movie theater, pool - looked fun but I didn't use them. The rooms where clean and had a decent amount of space. They were dark (not much wattage or natural light)... More

We stayed here June 16-20 as a family of 4 (two adults and two young children). We have family in Bend, and generally only stay in a hotel if there is an event, so this is the first time we stayed at the McMenamins Old St. Francis since not long after the place opened way back. We really enjoyed our... More

We stayed here only one night, in a king room on the street side ("Klondike Kate's room").It was spacious and comfortable, but somewhat dark and noisy. We like to sleep with the window open a bit, but were kept awake pretty late by people walking past. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful, and really enjoyed reading about... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our Historic Hotel. At this time we do only have one wing of rooms. There is a street side, located on a side street just off of the main street in downtown Bend and a courtyard side which does get some foot traffic from the Pub. Pretty soon we will have another...

We went to Bend with 2 other couples for a Doobie Brothers concert at the amphitheater on a Tuesday evening. Things were good, my husband and I were able to check in early and shared a burger at the restaurant. After the concert we walked back to the hotel and met our friends in the restaurant for a late dinner,... More

It is true that these guests were cut off. It is McMenamins policy and Oregon law to not serve patrons who are exhibiting visible signs of intoxication. It is vital to our operations to uphold this policy so that we may continue to be permitted to serve alcohol on the premises. In these circumstances we strive to deliver the cutoff... More
