First and foremost, you need to realize that this hotel is not for everyone. There are no luxuries, the building is very old and the rooms show some wear. Still, if you like funky old hotels with character, this can be the place for you, and at a very reasonable price. Although old, the rooms were very clean and the... More

Enjoy a stay at the Bent Elbow where you wake up to the sound AND SMELL to diesel pickups driving down the gravel road and dogs moaning from the kitchen below you. Your room will be filled with creepy antebellum-dated decorations and a huge round-screen 20" TV with 4 channels of cable. Your bed covers are stained and your shower... More

Eating a meal at the Bent Elbow is truly a wonderful culinary experience, and unlike anything else in town. The standard menu is always wonder, but the weekly specials are simply amazing. I make it a point to eat there at least once every year when I visit Silverton. My absolute favorite dish so far is the Mahi Mahi with... More

Friendly environment with the best food and drinks!! Cutest waiters and young kids which people love. Bonnies prime rib is to DIE for. Her whiskey bread pudding is like having a bite of christmas and the top is like eating an elf.

Made a reservation over the phone for the fourth of July ten months in advance. Used a cc# to confirm. Called a couple weeks later to confirm once again and was assured everything was fine. Received a call 7 months in advance saying our reservations were cancelled, citing that a fill in had messed up. When pressed, the manager was... More

Upon entering the room, it was extremely warm. We soon discovered there was no way to control the temperature. We were told we could open the window, but there was no screen. We were also concerned that for such an old building, that the smoke detector had been taken apart.

Absolutely without a doubt the nicest servers and tastiest foods in town.. Never in 30 years of dining out have I ever encountered such a nice and polite server. By far after a 3 hour train ride and/or drive into Silverton, The Bent Elbow will always be my stopping place for a meal. I certainly cannot get enough of that... More

Bonnie was wonderful! We showed up late and she was kind in helping us get to our room after hours, even after we'd totally missed her voice message on how to access our room. Room looked just like the pics. Kitchen needs better cookware options, but the place is clean, comfortable, and we'll be back!

The building itself is in kind of tough shape, but the staff were friendly, the room was clean, the place was quiet and the views were amazing. Conveniently located for walking the main town area. Wifi included in room price.

Having eaten at almost all the restaurants in silverton and almost all are good, the food prepared by the chef at the bent elbow is definately the best in town. She prepares original, creative and unique dishes that are absolutely delicious.I highly recomend this place.
