Read other reviews carefully, I did not. I stayed here for two nights in March, with my 17 year old daughter. We spent one night in a converted classroom (the music room) and one night in the newer "English Wing". The complex is interesting, and I applaud the McMennamins for converting historic buildings into useable space. The historic room was uncomfortable - heated with a space heater, think bedding and with a double bed. There were no comfortable chairs, the lighting was inadequate, and it was quite noisy as it backed to the public restroom and was outside the theater. The room in the English Wing was far more comfortable. I would not say it is a great atmosphere for children, as you might expect with a converted school. There are a number of bars, small and large, with guests roaming the halls with their drinks, the movie playing the evening I was there was over 21 only, there is not much for kids to do after the fun of looking at the murals. The restaurant was in my opinion overpriced for mediocre food, and the service was terribly slow, but the atmosphere in the courtyard with a nice open fire was lovely. Breakfast was not included in the room rate - and frankly not offering any breakfast option for guests is pretty unusual. There were not coffee pots in the rooms, nor an area where you could fix a cup of tea in a common area. This is a great spot for the right person, it just wasn't right for us - I won't stay here again.
