“Nothing fancy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Nice little motel. Average clean rooms and nice tv's with dish network. They also offer free WiFi. We were in walking distance to a good burger joint and convenience store. In the morning there was a free breakfast bar that you could eat there or take back to your room. Overall it was a good stay.

Stayed for one night April 2013. As others have said, the exterior is dated, but the accommodations are really quite nice. I needed a place for just a night to attend an event in Eugene, and because of several competing events, rooms in the area started at $150 and went up sharply from that. Got a room at the Downtown Motel (which is now re-named the Downtown Inn), for $66 including tax. Room was comfortable with a good queen sized bed, a good square dining or working table, a desk and chair, and big flat screen TV. The bathroom was spacious, clean and modern. The rooms have been updated and are a good value. Check in was efficient and pleasant.

Room Tip: On my stay, Room #2 did not have a deadbolt, so I asked for another room, and was quickly given one...

We are very glad to hear that you had a nice stay at our hotel. As far as the deadbolt issue goes we are having one put in this week on that door.

This small, locally owned motel makes for a nice place to stay in Eugene, Oregon whether its for one night (for those late night Duck Football games) or several nights for a business trip or long weekend get-away. It is a no-nonsense motel with the bare essentials, but its location, price and condition make up for the other more traditional chain hotel amenities. This little gem, located minutes from I-5 and 2 blocks from the west end of the I-105 freeway, makes it a very convenient location to get to. It is a short drive/medium walk from the downtown Eugene blocks and location of the famous Saturday Market. The rooms are clean, although carpeting could use a freshening up. The bathrooms are clean and look to have been remodeled in the past 3-5 years. A good sized flat screen TV, small table, two chairs and a comfortable queen bed complete the appointments in the room. Rooms could use a small microwave, but otherwise, for the price ($99-119+/-) it is a bargain when compared to the other chain hotels in the area ($129-$200+). Staff is friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The hotel is horseshoe ("U") shaped. I would ask for one of the rooms on the inside of th...

This hotel was literally in the middle of everything my and my husband needed to do in Eugene. The room is nicely redone and a value for how much it cost. I will stay there again the next time I'm in town.

Overall nice motel. The outside of the motel doesn't look so great, but the rooms are all newly renovated and modern. Everything was very nice and there was also a small refrigerator and microwave! It is very close to downtown Eugene and local shops. A good place for a short stay. Rooms are not sound proof, so expect to here lots of noise in the morning as people check out and start their cars. Starbucks one block away better choice than their continental breakfast.

Room Tip: Park your car early as the lot fills up quickly at night.

This motel, with clean and well furnished rooms, is but 2-3 blocks from the Hult Center in Eugene, with its concerts and other events. A senior rate night for 2 double beds Feb '12 was $66, taxes and all. While not luxury nor resort, the truly downtown location is great for an inexpensive night when we drive to Eugene for Hult events.

Room Tip: One story horseshoe around the parking area, so all rooms about same. We enjoyed having a bathtub in...

Exterior is not encouraging, but room was very good - a cut above average, but couldn't really rate it as "very good" although it is a good value Very clean, good hot shower, big fluffy towels (Willamette Valley has soft water), solid mattress and confortable pillow, so-so breakfast bar (coffee, cereal, some fruit). Excellent location for moving about downtown Eugene. Frig, microwave, hairdryer.
