We just returned after a family wedding that was held at McMenamin's in Forest Grove. It is a beautiful venue but do not be fooled. Their service is terrible. 20 minute waits for drinks, inexperienced bartenders, too many weddings being held at one time. There was an outdoor movie also going next door. Bar service was slow inside as well... More

We went for our 20yr anniversary, family road trip with the kids. We wanted to 32nd the trip at a McMenamins historic property for our anniversary. Got the kids a bunk bed room in the basement, and we got a king with private bath for us. If you like historic places then you will love McMenamins. Good food in the... More

Happy belated anniversary Ward. I’m happy you were able to bring the family out to spend time at our lodge and to read you had a good time. I know how important time with the family can be. The thought that you spent it with us means a great deal. Thank you. More

If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, interesting, and fun, then stay at McMenamin's Grand Lodge! This is not a luxury hotel, but it is clean and comfortable. We visited on a Monday, so it was relatively quiet. I understand it becomes quite a hot spot on weekends. Rooms are small but cozy. The shared bathrooms were... More

Wanted to stay but when we found out they did not have AC, that was a deal breaker. Looks like a fun place and we did take a look around and ate at one of the restaurants. It was excellent. Wish we could have spent more time.

Thanks for the review Chuck. Portland and surrounding areas have sure seen some warm weather this year. No doubt. It reminds me of the Midwest minus the no AC. Thank you for coming out to the lodge during your time in Oregon it is good to read you enjoyed yourself. It is hard to properly explain to my family back... More

Grand is not an adjective one can use to describe this place. It's a building with rooms that share bathrooms except for two rooms with private baths. 10 days ago our family had a reunion . . . they reserved the private bath rooms to 3 people so one family had to scramble to find another place. (They were grateful... More

Good day Frances. There are a few items in your review that I would like the opportunity to discuss with you. I’m sorry we were not the place you had planned and hoped for. I would like to have some of you time to hear more about the food service and experiences you had provided to you during your stay.... More

We decided to stay in the Grand Lodge for a two day anniversary trip. We were very pleased with our experience. The rooms are not large, don't have AC or TVs and you will have to use a common same gender bathroom (this is the European Style description), if any of those are going to be an issue then this...

Yes it is a charming and whimsical. Yes it can be very loud and you will have to share a bathroom. All of this is easily and accurately seen in others reviews. I have stayed at the Grand Lodge at least 5 times in the last couple of years and it is my go to hotel in the portland area.... More

Very polite service and typically great food with an eclectic menu to choose from, the Grand Lodge is no exception. Yes, I may be glowing after crushing my husband in a shuffleboard match in the Doctor's Office in the basement area, but the outdoor seating, Pat's Den and the other places for a bite to eat and/or drink let alone...

Took the trip out to forest grove for our baby moon during spring break. The plan was to hit up some other Mcmenamins on the trip out there. One thing about the trip - it takes FOR-EV-VER to get there. The road takes you through small pockets of towns and every one of them has a million streetlights. There is... More
