We came up from the Bay Area for an annual Knife Show, a much needed vacation, and this year we got a GREAT room and SUPERB service (Hans S!). We'll be staying again next year, hopefully in the same or similar room. Sweetwater dinner appetizers and the Cesar were delicious and enough to really satisfy. Staff was capable and house... More

I come up to this location every year for business. This hotel has a very nice ambience and is well-kept for an older hotel. It is a great location with lots of shopping and restaurants nearby and has a great trail along the river.

We stayed only one night. The room was in need of some updating. It was dark. The shower didn't drain well. The blankets were worn. I really wanted to like this hotel---- I am sure it was quite nice in its day..... But it needs some TLC. I did love sitting in the restaurant in the morning drinking an endless... More

I was a little disappointed in our stay. The rooms were a little depressing (looking) and the beds lacked a blanket. Room service was pretty good and the folks at the front desk were very helpful (Especially Carlos)

My parents stayed in this hotel while visiting me from out of town. Their experience was not good, which sucks since I only get to see them every few months. The hotel was average/below-average. Nothing really stood out about it, not positive anyway, the one thing about the hotel that did stand out were the horrible beds and rude employees.... More

The service at this hotel was amazing. Kim in the sweet waters restaurant went above and beyond to make everyone she encountered have a wonderful time. She was on top of the service, very friendly and amazingly sweet. Will definently be back to this hotel.

I am a local Eugenian, and had my family coming up from California to stay for a night. Olivia and Anthony where very accommodating and got us the room we where looking for. They also where able to sell us wine from the gift shop since everywhere else was closed and we where very pleased with the results.

We visted our daughter who is studying at UO. This was the perfect location. We could bike almost anywhere. The staff was very friendly and helpful . Ask for a room with a river view. We stayed on the 3rd floor. The breakfast and happy hour is very nice.

Stayed here for one night and was disappointed, although the views of the river was great. Somewhat dated, though large room but no mini fridge or microwave. Bathroom fixtures updated but bath linens were only of mediocre quality; thin with some fraying. I don't understand the use of cheap plastic drinking glasses, why not use glass and save from waste?... More
