A+ All staff members were very nice and professional. Mandates reduced services but with teamwork we were well taken care of. Rooms were very clean. Many restaurants nearby for good to go food. Elmer's was delicious. Public transportation and shopping center right in front of hotel. Staff was very helpful with information. They do have a small shop in the lobby with amenities and snacks. Lobby has a nice seating area with a fireplace. From the front desk to the housekeeping and maintenance crews this staff worked hard to ensure a quality stay in these difficult times and really need to be commended. Thank you.

It’s really annoying to get back to the room only to have the key not work. Then had to go to the front desk and wait for the one person working to help me. Then all the way back to the room tofu d the key still didn’t work. Back to the front desk and was told engineering would meet me. So back to the room again where the engineer said the system could be temperamental. So after that fiasco, I don’t want to leave the room. But can’t get room service unless it was requested a day in advance. Hungry and very annoyed. Always liked the place but don’t like walking back and forth several times and standing in line each time. The front desk person saw me coming the second time and really didn’t care about the inconvenience. Won’t be back

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us despite the disappointment. Hungry and annoyed is not the goal we had for your stay. I agree that having to travel back and forth to get operational keys is annoying; especially at such a large property. I would be happy to make it up to you, given the chance. I will follow up with our team members, as I do care and I am responsible for your stay. Sincerely, Greg

We have a contract for staying at this hotel, very poor customer service and room amenities. I stay here 2-3 times a week and get left hanging outside for up to 90 min waiting on a ride from a run down taxi service, because the hotel won’t send a shuttle to pick us up. The rooms they give us are hot seated and not maintained. Barbara at the front desk doesn’t answer the phones and hung up while still talking and asking about availability. Take your money elsewhere here in Eugene. Rooms are not sanitized, so bring your own cleaners, so you won’t get COVID-19.

Thank you for the feedback, and I am sorry we have so clearly let you down. Please do reach out to your Contract manager as we've not had any feedback of this sort. Please do feel free to reach out to me personally as well. We do sanitize each of the rooms, the shuttles and the property; we've even added an electro static sprayer to our equipment for extended protection. I will follow up with our team on the desk both for attentiveness to your call and shuttle arrangements. At times, due to volume, we are running both our shuttles and taxis. Sincerely, Greg

Well located hotel on the river bank in Eugene. Rooms are fine. Main complaint is that the place is dated and could really use refurbishment. We only used takeaway from the restaurant because of COVID, but is was fine. They have a really nice river balcony for dining, but it was closed when we were there due to poor air quality (wildfires), inside restaurant a little gloomy.

COVID, Fires and need or refreshment- I do thank you for your kind review in spite of it all. Our renovation was delayed in all this mess, but structural work is under planning and we hope to see some improvements this winter. Greg

This was Definitely the best place we stayed on our 10 day trip coming from San Francisco bay area up the Oregon coast and back. This hotel is located right on the river, the rooms are big and very nice, and they are dog friendly. The woman at the front desk, named Laura, was amazing. I told her I was celebrating my birthday (it had just been the day before) and she waved the dog fee. The whole experience was very pleasurable. Our room was on the river, the restaurant is on the river and you can enjoy food and cocktails out on the patio with the dog. There’s nothing about it we didn’t love. So a big shout out to Laura. You really made my day!
