As a part of the McMenamins family of hotels and restaurants, the Old St Francis School does not lack in unique character. Not only is it covered from head to toe in colorful artwork, it is also a special combination of bar, restaurant, hotel, movie theater, and soaking pool. We did not get to enjoy all of these features, but... More

I can't fully express our delight at staying at the old school! What a wonderful place! So creative, arty, historic! We decided we could live in Bend with places like that! The room was roomy enough, the bathroom was beautiful, shower was huge! The facilities offer so much for guests.

This a great place, keeping with the look and feel of a typical McMenamins property. They did an excellent job in keeping the old and mixing it with the new.

Our family of five college age and above stayed in the Friary a separate building on the property. This was ideal for our needs. The hotel is nicely decorated with religious themes which we loved. Mine was a letter from a young girl who really did not like going to confession. Kitchen was decent size, living room with good TV,... More

Great place to stay. The rooms were nicely designed and comfortable. Everything you could want is on the premises. There are various bars, a movie theater, and a pool. It is an easy walk into Bend, so you can browse in the quaint shops, coffee shops, and restaurant. Staff was nice and very helpful. it is a fun adventure to... More

Great hotel. It was fun to explore the hotel and the surrounding area. I would give it 5 stars if the rooms were a little lighter. (a bit on the dark side) Went to the bar and accidently stumbled upon a wonderful happy hour. Had a kale Caesar salad that I believe was 3 or 4 dollars. Many other good... More

Spent a nice Labor Day weekend in Bend, Oregon last Labor Day, finally got around to the review. If you like all of your fun in one spot, this is your place. Artsy hotel, beer, and movie theater all under one roof. Easy walking distance to downtown Bend. The restaurant was very good and you can also order food in... More

We pass thru the Bend area at least twice a year and absolutely LOVE this place, you cannot ask for a better hotel. The location is perfect if you want to park your car, because you've probably been in it traveling all day and stroll into downtown. You are within blocks of downtown with all the cool shops and great... More

Had a wonderful stay at this very unusual hotel. The staff went out of their way to assist in our needs. The hotel, an old Catholic school,converted to a very up to date hotel,pub and brewery. Beers were great,food outstanding and ambience over the top. Highly recommended.

This is truly a wonderful place and unique to experience. The history is amazing as it truly was an old school at one time. Beautiful accommodations and the restaurant has amazing food. If you want to try to see a movie, you MUST get there very early!
