Everything was great, from our checkin to our departure. Staff and service was outstanding. Our catered event we had was 2nd to none. We will definitely book future stays. Our hats our off to all staff that assisted us. Thanks to the great shuttle service to the airport.

I won a bed and breakfast package through an event I attended through work. They upgraded us for free to a river facing room and the package included a gift certificate to Sweetwaters Restaurant in the hotel--$14 per person, which was nice. Booking process was great--talked to a nice gentleman and he got everything set up and then the guy... More

First of all it was nearly impossible to find a parking spot anywhere near our room. We had to park in the very back and walk all the way to the front, we could not find an elevator so we had to carry all our luggage up two flights of stairs. Not good for my friend with a heart condition!... More

We almost always stay here when we fly in and out of Eugene. Sometimes we come for date night. Room, dinner, breakfast and 2 movie tickets. We love having a little getaway. This time I notice the bathtub is in very poor shape. The porcelain is majorly chipped around the drain and up higher on that end of the tub.... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Great location near shopping district, restaurants and movie theater as well as the paved biking/running/walking trail and the Wilamette River behind the hotel. We stayed for a total of 3 nights while exploring the Eugene area. We booked a Premier room with 2 Queen beds, concierge service and a river view. We enjoyed our room... More

The dining experience was great. The staff is friendly. The hotel room itself was surprisingly updated with plenty of electrical outlets for business use. The only reason I did not give this a 5 rating is because it has a nice fitness center, but I could not find it. No signage. But it does have one and it has high... More

Pros-- Very friendly staff; walking distance to some shopping, Starbucks & some dining; nice rooms along the river with small patios; a river-view restaurant. Cons-- Older construction, pretty well maintained but we could hear the people on both sides and above us. The restaurant staff was easily overwhelmed when it was busy. Overall a good place to stay if you... More

Okay, so I was here for a convention and didn't really have very high expectations for this place, but was pleasantly surprised. The room was really nice with an incredible view. The restaurant was decent. I will say, be warned, I'm pretty sure their decaf coffee is the kind that is actually half-caf.. so be wary of that. Otherwise, I... More

We took the room for convenience sakes. They do offer a free early morning shuttle to the airport. This was once the best hotel in town but it is badly in need of basic repairs and updates. paint in the public areas especially the bathrooms and hot tub/pool area. New carpet would be nice. Our room had some badly stained... More
