I booked a room with a bunk bed, with shared bathroom. It's the same price whether 1 or 2 people stay. If only 1 person stays you still get the room to yourself. I half expected a hostel like experience where you share a room. This was not the case. Bed is comfy. The walls are thin so you can... More

Deinse I’m happy to see you enjoyed the room. The bunk rooms are unique and offer affordable getaways for those who book the rooms. Thank you for mentioning the former life of the lodge. I consider this the most important fact about our property. I rather enjoy going back in the minds eye to think of what life would’ve been... More

The Grand Lodge was a great spot for a quick night away from home for my wife and I. We were so pleased with the level of service we received, especially when we had to request a pet friendly room at the last minute. Everyone was so accommodating and made the trip so easy. We also had a great room... More

We showed up during the Grand Lodge's 93rd birthday party this past weekend. It was very festive with free live entertainment, wine and spirits tastings, and lots of food on offer from the restaurants. If this celebration was any indication, I'd say check out any of their other events because you can just enjoy all of the entertainment without spending... More

After reading your review I want to thank you for the honest feedback. It is appreciated. What an amazing weekend we had for the 93rd Birthday celebrations.

My husband had surgery on his leg and we were headed home to the Oregon Coast. The fog was so thick we had to pull over. He said Let's call the Grand lodge. It was about five minutes from where we were pulled over. We had our dogs with us. To our surprise they had just become pet friendly and... More

Hello springkennedy. It sounds like the day was an eventful one with surgery meet with thick fog on your drive home. Best wishes to your husband for a fast recovery.

This place is a great place to stay and relax. The multiple choices of restaurants and pubs on the property is unique. Each one has a different theme and the menus vary slightly. The cool thing is that there are what I call "little treasures" at every turn. As in most McMenamin's facilities no surface goes un-decorated. This place is... More

You will get no argument from me, Passports Rock!

I have stayed here multiple times and absolutely adore it!! Keep in mind its a european style lodge with shared bathrooms but I don't mind at all. The soaking bath is to die for!

We had an early evening supper at the McMenamins Restaurant, so the place definitely wasn't busy. I mention this because the food was about half cold and the service was not good. We had to wait a long time before the waiter came. Then we had to wait another long time for the food -- which wasn't hot -- and... More

We always have a great time staying at this well maintained former Masonic retirement home. An amazing restaurant, the Iron works grill, offers seasonal delicious food. The several small bars and entertainment areas around the large, laid back property add many opportunities for live music, pool, shuffle board, disc golf, spa services, as well as a large outdoor saline soaking...

The McMenamins empire brings its magic to this former Masonic lodge with funky artwork, cozy bars, snug rooms. Having a shared bathroom no biggy- saves you money. (A few en suites are available.) There is sink in the room, which is just big enough, with surprisingly comfy bed! Don't expect luxury...expect quirkiness, some noise, and a lot of fun. Great... More
