This motel was our first impression of Bend, and I must say it wasn't a good one. We wanted to stay in the Oxford downtown, but could not get 2 rooms. If you don't care about style or location and just need a room, this may be your motel. On the up side, the room was HUGE, and in fact, we did not even utilize all of the space. (We booked the family suite w/ the spiral stairs--- try getting your luggage up those!) I think most of the positive reviews that I read about this place were from paid employees and not real guests. The pillows are lumpy and the towels were from the 1970's, just like the decor (and not in a fun retro way!). The patio overlooking the river had cheap plastic chairs and cobwebs galore. The smell of the entire place was of ammonia or urine, or both. The only reason I gave it 2 stars and not one was because I didn't see any dirt, bugs, or anything else that would warrant the lowest possible score.
The breakfast was great for my kids, but my husband and I chose to eat elsewhere. They provided quite possibly the WORST COFFEE on the planet. It tasted like an old metallic coffepot. They did provide a large assortment of fresh fruit, oatmeal, eggs, bacon, waffles and cold cereals. To say something positive: The fruit was good!
I hate being so negative, but after staying at the Hotel Monaco in Portland for 4 days and then another nice hotel on the coast, coming to this hotel/motel was a complete and utter disappointment.
