“Great get away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2011

We stayed here one night(Sept. 24) during Bend's Octoberfest. We had the king suite, a huge room! Very nicely furnished and comfortable. The pub had good food and beer, of course. And the breakfast was delicious too. The mosiac-tiled Turkish soaking pool was really relaxing, very quiet and peaceful when we were there(during the movie on a saturday night). Would stay there again. We've eaten and drunk at other McMenamins but have never stayed in one of their hotels before. Now we want to try Edgefield!

From the moment you arrive,you are in a warm relaxing environment with natural wood,fun quirky decor,antiques and unique touches like a movie theater on premise.
The bar is fun and lively,the rooms are comfortable and the coffee is amazing.
The hotel is in the middle of Bend within walking distance to the river park.
This is the place tostay when visiting Bend!

We stayed in the Art House with my son and his wife, and this was a perfect fit for us--two equally charming bedrooms with a complete kitchen and living room. Airing out the space is advisable--small confined rooms. The entire property is charming and accomodating. Service is excellent. The refrigerator in our room did not have a freezer. No problem! Just outside the back door is a friendly tavern very willing to fill the ice bucket, along with inviting fire pits. The morning we left they directed us to the main restaurant for ice and they offered to fix us travel cups of coffee as well! They deliver freshly ground coffee to your door each morning by 6am along with a newspaper. There is a movie theatre and music venue here as well, free if you are guests. You are within walking distance of most of the Ale Trail sites and good restuarants and shopping. We truly enjoyed the local food market while we were there on a Wednesday.

Room Tip: The hallway to the interior rooms in the hotel is a little dark but they also have charming photos a...

A real occasion to stay here. Creative, funky art and sculpture everywhere. This McMenamin's has very nice bathrooms in you OWN room. Coffee packet of fresh ground beans and a newspaper were delivered to outside our room before 7 AM.
We ate "Early Bird" burgers in the smaller pub across the courtyard before going to the movie in their theater. We sat on cozy sofas and could have ordered food and drink delivered there.

After the show (complimentary to guests) we went thru the courtyard, where an outdoor fireplace was blazing, into the main pub/dining room. Try their "dessert sampler plate."

We had a really wonderful time with no need leave the facility while there for just one night. After driving all day THAT was a real bonus.

Could find NO CONS.

We were only able to spend one night here, unfortunately. Bend is a great town, and Old St. Francis is a great location for enjoying the downtown area. At check-in, we were asked what type of freshly roasted and ground coffee beans we would like at our door in the morning! The building and individual rooms are uniquely decorated. We enjoyed a movie in the theatre between stops at local brew pubs. Would have liked to try the soaking tub, but it was full and we had just had some great beer and desserts at the restaurant on the premises, and needed sleep. Awesome place, we will be back!!!

We have stayed here twice in the last couple years. While the lodging does not have as much art work as your typical McMenamins, it makes up with it's own eastern Oregon style. Rooms are wood paneled and rustic. The hotel is centrally located in Bend and is within walking distance of most attractions. Fall is a great time to visit as the leaves are changing and they build fires outdoors for guests. The hosts and front desk workers are super friendly and the rooms are very clean.
