I stayed from 3-3-14 to 9-3-14. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Nothing to dislike, but moreover, lots to like. Pleasant staff, walking distance to some great eateries, a small general store and close to the university. The bed was extremely comfortable, plenty of choice for breakfast and plenty of communal or private areas to relax indoors as the weather was... More

Spent three nights at Secret Garden Inn in the Edelweiss room, overall a pleasant but uneven experience; this place is close to very good but not quite there. Room was furnished with quality furniture and a nice bed, but this particular room was too small for desk and chair; get a larger room if you plan to work. Bathroom had... More

I stayed at the secret garden and it worked. It was good but not great. It looks and feels a bit run down. It could use a little more cleaning - at least my room. I appreciated the breakfasts and it was conveniently located to walk to the University of Oregon. There was not staff around all the time and... More

Nicely appointed rooms. Comfortable beds. Large comfortable common areas. Tasty breakfasts with generous portions. Pleasant staff. Great location near campus. All this adds up to a great experience at a reasonable price.

This would be a terrific place to stay for a big group. Lots of rooms and extensive common areas with comfortable places for reading and socialization. The staff we met were all extremely friendly and helpful. It's a bit "spendy" as they say in Oregon, but a beautiful place and has a wonderful inn cat named Liam. Looks like it's... More

We stayed at the Secret Garden Inn for five nights wrapped around a football game at Autzen Stadium. Our team was beaten by the Ducks, but Oregonians went out of their way to welcome us to Oregon. The inn is located next to the campus and it is walkable to the stadium. The owner even drove some of our group... More

There were 23 in our party, and each couple had their own room or suite with their own bathroom. The staff, Don included,... More

My wife and I had a delightful time at this charming bed and breakfast. The hosts were very attentive and accommodating. The rooms are very well appointed, and it is in a safe and quiet neighborhood adjacent to the university. The breakfast was very well prepared, and made to order. Given the quality of the accommodations, convenient location, and delicious... More

I loved my stay at Secret Garden Inn in Eugene! From the night I arrived, until the afternoon I checked out, the staff was so kind and pleasant, and the Inn and grounds were well kept and comfortable. It is warm, homey, charming, open and airy, with the cutest lounge areas- replete with tea and magazines. This is the best... More

Stayed here for four days in June. So pleasant in every way. The staff is so welcoming, the rooms delightful, the ambiance relaxing. Liam the cat, who lives just outside and has his own heated quarters, is an added plus. Close to everything. Delicious breakfasts. Can't wait to go back. Wendy A.
