Riverhouse on the Deschutes

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Great location...beautiful setting! Came away wishing I could move to Bend and take a job at the Riverhouse.
Breakfast buffet was expansive...be sure to sit outside along the river.
'Family' suite was roomy and comfortable. A little outdated perhaps, but 'Master' was perfect.
Can't wait to go back.

This is clearly an older hotel, with large rooms and ample space, nice amenities, and a great river front location. some parts are starting to wear a little, but the price is reasonable. A little removed from downtown but quiet. We've stayed here three or four times and have never been disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask for the river front rooms on the side closest to the office and pool.

Nice location...across street from shopping center, great if you do not have a car! Staff were very responsive and friendly! Small issue with the TV not working one day, 5 minutes after I reported it, technician was at my door and fixed it, 10 minutes later, front desk staff called to see if it had been taken care of. Location to convention center was great...across the street. Street was very busy, however, the hotel did have a safe walkway under the street. Breakfast buffet was great, with a good selection to choose from.

Room Tip: Dinner at the hotel restaurant was good....if weather permits, sit on the patio overlooking the rive...

Went their for a convention for 2012. The room was small and dark even though it was nice and sunny outside. Was to get a room with a queen bed and a murphy bed originally but had none when I had to add a day. Price was the same for a single queen as for a queen and a murphy. Convention center was across a very busy street, if you took the under the street way you had to go down a hill up the stairs down a hill up a hill then under the street and back up a hill. Not good if you have a bad back. The breakfast that was included was great plenty of hot food, but nobody to check to see if you were a guest of the hotel and had a breakfast included in your room cost. I had paid the extra $10 to have the breakfast included but I could of just as of not had and ate anyway nobody would have known. Stayed there for four night and one of the days the room did not get maid up.

I've stayed here several times (all for work) in the past 2 years. The setting on the river is very peaceful and the water "noise" from the river helps you forget that you are in town! The price includes a full hot breakfast. Some rooms have exterior doors and some have interior doors, but there is enough space from the door to the bed that you don't hear vehicles leaving (and car doors) early in the morning. The rooms tend to be very large. the price also includes a complementary drink in the bar. There are many restaurants within walking distance in a variety of price ranges - every things from Shari's (24 hour) and Izzys (pizza and grill buffet) to McGrath's Fish House, A sports grill (open only for Breakfast and lunch), Applebees, IHOP, and probably more. I am 5'5" and in some rooms the beds are so tall that I have difficulty getting in them (!). I also have a cpap machine, and in some rooms I cannot sleep in the regular bed and have to sleep in the murphy bed to have access to an electrical outlet for my cpap machine.
The check-in process has been interminably slow several times that I have been there - long waits without enough staff to fully staff the front desk during busy checkin times.
The restaurant has excellent food (check out the half-price appetizers in the bar each day!), and so does room service. I highly recommend the ghirardelli chocolate-mint cake!

Room Tip: I recommend a room on the opposite side of the river from the front office.

We just stayed one night on September 21 on our way home to Lumby, BC. We had a beautiful room with a balcony that overlooked the pool areas. Awesome breakfast and excellent coffee. We never checked the restaurant out as we had already had something eat earlier. The cards would not work for the door lock but was taken care of quickly by the staff to reprogram them. We certainly would stay there again without hesitiation perhaps arriving a bit earlier to check out the restaurant and pool.

This is becoming an annual trip for us. With 2 swimming pools, it is easy to entertain the grandchildren, easy access to the river trail makes it a great place to go for a walk or run. I We have found the staff to be helpful, friendly, and the included breakfast is one of the better I have had. Most of the time we have a pet with us and my experience seems to be that the pet rooms are not as nicely maintained as the non-pet rooms. This was the first time we had a kitchen unit and when we checked in there were fingerprints on the front of the dishwasher and refridgerator. (However, the cleaning staff did notice them on the second day and wipe them up.)

Room Tip: I think it is worth it to pay extra for a river view room. If you desire a less busy location, ask f...
