“Best Beds, Food & Treatment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I wanted to take that bed home! So comfortable. You are not getting the experience if you don't pay the little extra to have a riverside room. Never slept so good!

Great FREE breakfast at the on site restaurant. Good varity. Real food! Eggs, pancakes, sausage, oatmeal and Friday morning they added bisquets and gravy. Yummy! The bar has good food at reasonable prices as well.

Had room service one night. Best steak ever!

You will also want to get downtown. Great bar scene or if with the kids, check out the parks along the river downtown!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river and on the same side as the office, restaurant and pool!

I stayed her twice in the 80s and always remembered it as a great spot in Bend on the river. This time I was not disappointed. We got a room in one of the buildings above the river, room 301, which was a very spacious studio with a balcony over looking the Deschutes River. It was a great spot to have an afternoon happy hour with the sun streaming from across the river. We took a short walk to down town and found an amazing Thai Restaurnt called Noi where we got to continue the sitting outside thing with a sidewalk table. The room was clean and well stocked with most everything you would need in the kitchen. We enjoyed having the pool and hot tub to ourselves in the evening and it seemed perfectly warm enough and clean. The view out over the river was beautiful. I would stay here again in a heartbeat next time I am in Bend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in one of the buildings above the river. The rooms that were right down at river leve...

We have stayed at the Bend Riverside many times and wanted to share some tips.

There are several styles of rooms/suites here. We always try to stay in one of the studio suites with a balcony overlooking the river. There are 2 of these 3 story buildings right on the Deschutes River. There is no elevator. There is covered parking. Some units are owner occupied. It can be a bit noisy if your staying next to or under one of these units. The units we stay in have a full kitchen, a gas fireplace and a queen 'murphy' bed - comfortable enough.
The location is great. Right next to a park - and along a river walk. Close enough to town to walk in and back.
There is a covered pool area with a hot tub. There is also a sauna - not always on. Weekends can get pretty crowded with kids.
They have pet friendly rooms and are good about keeping records on your past stays - so checking in (or late check in) is always easy.
This is a great place to stay if your in Bend and not staying a one of the big resorts. You can have your own 'out-door' resort-y feeling - in the city - for a fraction of the price.

Room Tip: River-view building with decks (there is a one story building on the river - but there is no deck...

We had a king cottage, along the river. The large room had a small but fully stocked kitchen, although the fridge was noisy. The room was not fancy, but it was quiet and comfortable. Bed and bedding were comfy. Room was clean, and the river view was relaxing. There is a steep drive to the cottages, so beware if it gets icy. Wifi was out in our building, but it worked at the office. Our room was much quieter than the one we had at the Fairfield across the street last year.

If you want to hear the river and enjoy the afternoon sun off your porch, this will due. Nothing fancy, but functional. The kitchen/ bedroom suite works just fine. Plenty of room to spread out after a day of skiing. The gas fireplace is very nice.

The location is great - next to or within easy view of the fast moving Deschutes River and easy walking distance of many of Bend's restaurants and brew pubs. We had a two room suite that was comfortable for three guy skiers - easy to make a quick breakfast before hitting the slopes and room to lounge about in after that hard day of skiing.

BUT, the accommodations were cold (one room's heater barely worked) and the surface finishes were of the cheapest possible materials (the shower was patched with duct tape). There was zero 'charm' ...so this place works solely as a place to stay out of the cold ...and no more.

The room was clean and comfortable. Not too small. .
Breakfast was OK, I guess.
Riverside setting over rated.
Brought a nice beer back but no opener in the room. Went to reception. No one had one nor cared much. Got sent to the next building to ask at the restaurant. Feeling now like someone who looked like he had an alcohol problem i took off 80m down the road. There someone kindly helped but not before giving me the look of "what is this boy doing walking into a restaurant with a bottle in his hand?"
Ok there are bigger problems in the world than this but really, this is an easy one to fix. Welcome to brewing and wine country!
