Our one-night stay at the Oval Door was lovely and I would happily have stayed longer. The Inn is attractive and comfortable, breakfast was scrumptious and many delightful extras were provided, including the best homemade oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies ever. The location is also excellent, on a quiet street yet an easy walking distance to restaurants and shops.

Our original room was occupied this earlier night, so owner put us in a more expensive room for the same price as the original lesser room. Nice start. Place is very nice. Comfortable, nice residential street, nice... More

we spent 3 1/2 days here. Plenty of coffee and drinks. Very clean and comfortable. Cold or hot breakfast in the morning. The propriator and her assistants were friendly. Rooms large enough and ours had a Queen and twin with a bathroom and shower. I would love to return here.

We started staying here way before we knew of tripadvisor and we love how you can stay in a place over the years and return, and still be as happy as you were the first time. This is a place like that. It's charming and comfortable. Nichole and Melissa have an attention to detail providing quality amenities throughout. Their breakfasts... More

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.

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
