A bunch of friends descended on this place at the recommendation of a local and were not disappointed. For several of us this was our first time at a Bed & Breakfast and I am hooked. The home was so charming and welcoming. We were greeted by Nicole when we arrived and she helped us carry luggage upstairs to our... More

The B & B was rebuilt in the 90's after a fire burned down the original. It has retained an old country house kind of charm with the great advantage of feeling fresh and clean. We knew that we would be self-checking and that worked out fine. Our room, Forget-Me-Not, is very pleasant and has wonderful views of the enormous... More

Thank you so much for your kind words, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. I am so sorry about the alarm clock! We will make sure to remind the cleaning staff to double check the alarms. Next time you stay, we will put aside some cookies for you..they tend to disappear pretty quickly! More

This is one of those situations where location, location, location doesn't fit. I was in Eugene for the football game. The only other time I was in a Eugene was three years ago again for a game. That prior visit, I stayed at the C'est La Vie Inn which is a wonderful bed and breakfast but not as closely located... More

We've been running this inn for 15 years, and sometimes it's hard to be objective. So, we want to say "thank you" for pointing out that our inn could use some refreshing. We have taken your opinion to heart and made some changes to the decor inside. The room you stayed in was meant to look antique..so that will not... More

From the outside you would never know what lies within. The Oval Door is a wonderful place to stay, great ambiance on the main floor with a mixture of nicely decorated rooms with adequate space. The breakfasts were terrific with two varied hot items each day, baked goods, fresh fruit, and plenty of coffee, juice and tea. Nicely stocked refrig... More

We were very fortunate that the owners allowed us to stay just one night on a weekend for my husband's birthday. At first the neighborhood concerned us a little but it turned out to be extremely conveniently located to the downtown area and the Valley River Center. We walked through the neighborhood on our way to downtown and it's really... More

We stayed one night while traveling between Vancouver and Gold Beach. We arrived at 6:30 p.m. after getting caught up at the border and in Portland commute traffic. Called the B&B and told them we would be late (they're only there between 3-6 to welcome guests). No problem, they gave us the front door code and left our room key... More

My wife and I stayed at The Oval Door for three nights. It is as close to perfect as you can get. Our room, which was Bamboo, was quiet and comfortable with all the amenities. Breakfast was a treat.

The Oval Door was WONDERFUL! We drove through Eugene while on our honeymoon this September and needed somewhere to stay for one night. The innkeepers are very welcoming and nice. The home made cookies were amazing. There is wine and beer available for guests (included in room charge). The room was spacious, very clean, and vintage. The breakfast in the... More
